Catholic Devotees Were Nailed to Crosses for Good Friday in the Philippines

(SAN PEDRO CUTUD, Philippines) — Seven Filipino Roman Catholic devotees, including a woman, were nailed to wooden crosses in a Good Friday reenactment of Jesus Christ’s suffering that was watched by thousands of spectators but frowned upon by church leaders.

Snort. Oink.

Question

Why do Abrihamics consider pigs filthy animals?

Comment was by Davy on February 9, 2018 at 12:40pm

Just one tiddly but to me irritating point.
Beowulf was a Norse saga not an English epic poem. It came to English shores when the Danes, Jutes, Angles and Saxons decided they want to live there as well. 

Comment was by Mrs.B on February 8, 2018 at 7:21pm

Yeah, we heard about the dilution years ago, but I didn't know there was a diploma associated with this!

‘A pseudo-science’: Outrage after Ontario government funds college program in homeopathy

Three years ago, Ontario became the first province to regulate the practice of homeopathy to widespread criticism the government was legitimizing 'quackery'

Outrage is mounting over a publicly funded Ontario college’s plan to launch a diploma program in homeopathy, a practice based on the philosophy that illness can be treated with massively diluted substances — so super-diluted scientists say the “remedies” are virtually water.
Critics say Georgian College in Barrie has created a three-year course that has no grounding in science, is based on “magical thinking” and could ultimately harm the public by giving the field an air of official credibility. Numerous studies, they argue, have found no reliable evidence from research in humans that homeopathic remedies are any more effective than placebos, or sugar pills.

Creationists Claim Beowulf Proves Humans and Dinosaurs Coexisted

Bad science: Creationists claim Beowulf is an “eyewitness account” of dinosaurs existing with humans.

The stupid, it burns.

Recently geologist Andrew Snelling, the Director of Research for Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis, argued that Beowulf, the Old English epic poem that dates between the 8th and 11th centuries, is evidence of humans and dinosaurs interacting.

For the record, Beowulf is a work of fiction.

...learn to be kind to each other?

Chris, I will paraphrase the Bard (from As You Like It?).

Some of us are born to being kind to each other.

Some of us learn to be kind to each other.

Some of us have learning to be kind to each other thrust upon us.

And some of us, none of the above.

Hopefully we'll learn from the cosmos.

Do you think it's possible for people to learn to be kind to each other?

Comment was by Tom Sarbeck on October 12, 2016 at 6:47pm

Chris, this links to an item about redshift

http://electric-cosmos.org/arp.htm

That link is one of many by a retired professor of electric engineering, which I started college to study and astrophysicists do not study.
