Science vs Religion (thinking of the recent Nye vs Creationist debate): Have you ever been watching a movie for the first time and someone starts to whisper how it ends, and you say I DON"T WANT TO KNOW! ? Sure you have, me too. You like the feeling of being in the story, in the fantasy, for the several hours, me too. Most in organized religion have decided to Live the Fantasy of their religion - they find it exciting, meaningful, comforting, affirming, providing community.... My point isn't to defend the fundamentalists - I have zero affinity with them. But surely, if they want to make of their life a fantasy, that is there choice! Nye, and the Left, does not seem to have a clue that this is going on with these folks. Nye, and the Left, has chosen to make the bedrock of his life science, objective fact, objective, measurable reality. The Religionists have chosen fantasy. There is no basis for these two sides finding a shared vision or common set of beliefs. The Left refuses to see this, as does the Right. I'm amazed and concerned at the universal blindness on the Left regarding this;; I expect it on the Right because they've chosen fantasy.

An amazing chart on how the Koch brothers are dominating the Senate ad race

Solar energy now same price as conventional power in Germany, Italy, Spain - report

pic: SOLAR IS CHEAP AT 4 X THE PRICE, IF YOUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE IS PRICELESS. Every drop of oil, lump of coal, cubic foot of natural gas we burn is POISON to our children, their world, their future. Solar is cheap at 4 times the price, FACTUALY, because it does not carry the POISON.

Albert Einstein: Few are those who see with their own eyes, and feel with their own hearts.

Loving: I've found that the real pain of a personal problem is that it switches the focus of my life from the Joy of trying to Serve the Neediest others, to the Hell of dwelling on myself. This, I can overcome. Loving, is the answer, always.

SEE PIC for detail: 47 million Americans are now living in poverty. Some are quick to say: "Those Americans are lazy and do not care to work" NO. Jobs are eliminated....!

EXCELLENT.

Charity is a feel-good solution for the giver; a deadly substitute for what is needed. Solidarity, from the Soul, Loving, is all that acan Serve and Save the neediest. If not this it is nothing more than isult to injury.

When I lost all of my excuses I found my results. Unknown

Ansel Adams: Once destroyed, nature's beauty cannot be repurchased at any price.

Brilliant pic: Capitalism

"If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of devine reward then, brother, that person is a piece of shit."

pic. Poverty: Punishment for a crime you did not commit

























Tragically, this great man, Obama, will be remembered only for the 2 all out Wars he did not declare and wage, win or lose: 1. All out War on Global CO2 emisions, death of Creation. 2. All out war on US Inequality, the death of democracy. The same can be said of every Liberal today.

***** MLK Jr: When we look at modern man, we have to fact the fact that modern man suffers from a kind of poverty of the spirit, which stands in glaring contrast with a scientific and technological abundance. We've learned to fly the air as birds, we've learned to swim the seas as fish, yet we haven't learned to walkt the Eath as brothers and sisters."

***** Francis of Assisi: Remember when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received; only what you have given - a heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage."

***** Margaret Mead: "Never depend upon institutions of government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals."

Gloria Steinem: A dwindling libido, she thorized, can be a terrific advantage: "The brain cells that used to be obsessed are now free for all kinds of great things."

Sigmund freud: the culture that drives the masses to rebel will cease to exist. See graphic for exact quote.

Important data. Corporations make clear that employees are meaningless commodities, when they argue that employees salary cannot rise while CEO compensation skyrockets. If we keep working for them, if we keep buying from them, we have no one to blame but ourselves

Brilliant photo. New York's first legally married gay couple. Clearly a threat to us all.

Image. Friends not food.

Brilliant cartoon. God hates fags! You have to see this.

George Carlin. Tell people there is an invisible man in the universe that created everything and they will believe you. Tell them that the paint is wet and they will have to touch it.

Important image. Conservatives are afraid of everything.

Makers versus takers. Any questions?
