  1. Re: Is teacher pay more important than the other variables for a good education?

    Re: Tom Cruise and the Church of Science Fiction

    Time is a property of the physical universe created by the big bang. In that universe it makes sense to use physics, and science in general, as a basis for your beliefs (at least to me).

    Re: Tom Cruise and the Church of Science Fiction

    Always go to the classics! As you probably know, Paley’s watchmaker argument has been around for over two centuries, and has been refuted and argued against countless times over the past 150 years or...
  4. Re: Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God

    It appears that some here are assuming that by studying the possibility of the use of entheogens in religious ceremonies of the ancient Israelites, Dr. Shanon is trying to belittle or disprove...
  5. Re: Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God

    Great point.
  6. Re: Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God

    Not making this differentiation is one of my pet peeves, because the equality is not even close to being true. Arabs are only about 20% of the Muslim population. And while most Arabs adhere to Islam,...
  7. Re: Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God

    What jdoggivjc is saying is that not all Muslims are Arab and not all Arabs are Muslims.

    Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael. If a Muslim happens to be Arab, than that Muslim is also a...
  8. Re: Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God

    On the other hand, most ancient cultures sprung up along rivers. Hence they were all affected by floods, so it is natural to create myths about floods.

    Also, many of the stories may have a common...

    Re: Be Careful With Emails

    BBC also picked up this story, and I still don't believe it for a second :smile:
  10. Re: Moses was on psychedelic drugs when he heard God

    For those wanting to comment on the intent of the researcher, I would recommend reading the actual article rather than the news report, which is subject to the same inaccuracies as most of the news....

    Re: Pizza Failure

    I only make thin crust at home - preferably over real fire - so I'm limited help. Unlike pastry crust, where it is always a good policy not to put all the water in at once, I think it would be...

    Re: Hoard your Light Bulbs Now

    I've also changed every bulb where I can. I have two fixtures where I can't find one that fits, so I guess I'll have to change those fixtures out by 2014; and more importantly, as others have pointed...

    Excellent observation. When they were writing books on these types of manufacturing philosophies back in the 80s and early 90s, they did not hide how they were derived from Taylor's work. In fact, it...

    The buzz words are necessary to disguise the fact that everything is either common sense or 70+ year old statistical methods being repackaged for the umpteenth time. Buzz words sell books and...
