We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted, in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings.

Of my friend, I can only say this: Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human. 
In addition to acting, Mr. Nimoy directed films; published poetry, autobiographies and books of photography; and recorded music.

I never thought I would live to see the day, but I am glad to see it is now a distinct possibility. The US GOVERNMENT is finally admitting (in a roundabout way) that they have been wrong about the classification of Cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug.
Maybe we will see the end of the ridiculous "war on drugs" ? One can only hope.

Octopus males! Survive your next mating encounter by simply trying this one weird trick. 
Octopuses are thoroughly antisocial. Yet for some reason they have evolved to mate in the most intimate way possible

On today’s podcast, Trinity College computer science professor Mark Lewis argues that we cannot educate our way out of technological unemployment. If, in order to have a job, you have to be able to program, what does that mean for those of us who are never going to be great programmers? Humans are slow learners, and we already spend a quarter of our lives in school. Can we ever hope to duplicate the tremendous gains in education we achieved during the industrial revolution? What will it take? Enhanced brains, smart drugs, or just better pedagogy?

"'I'm Probably an Atheist; I Don't Buy It, I Think the Only Reason for Religion Is Death,' Says Broadcaster Larry King" (+Larry King).

(Bonus 39 minutes of video footage of the radio interview with DJ Envy from The Breakfast Club featuring Larry King is included.)

From the attached article...

-----
Veteran radio and television broadcaster Larry King says he thinks the only reason religion exists is because people fear death and declared "I'm probably an atheist."

King made the revelation last Thursday on the popular Power 105.1 morning radio show in New York City called "The Breakfast Club" hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God.

In a portion of the interview beginning at about the 8-minute 15-second mark, King and the hosts engage in a discussion about life and death after Charlamagne Tha God questioned the 81-year-old, who's been married seven times, about his desire to freeze his body after he dies.

"I just taped Dr. Oz yesterday (last Wednesday) and he showed me what happens when they do that and it makes a lot of sense to me," King said about having his body frozen.

"I don't believe that I'm going anywhere. I'm not religious, so I believe when you die you die and that's it. So I'm so curious, and I like living and so I want one little chance. If I'm frozen and then they find a cure for whatever I died of and they could cure me, is that better than laying in the ground or being burnt while you're dead? Those two ways you can't get out, but I figure if I can be frozen and then something happens …" he continued.

"My wife says, 'Yeah, but what if you wake up 200 years later you don't know anybody?' I said, 'I'll make new friends,'" he added with a chuckle. "It's the one way grab at eternity to live. I don't want to not exist."

He then noted that he thinks it's the fear of death that makes people religious.

"I think it's the biggest fear people have. They might say they don't. 'I know I'm going somewhere (he says of those who believe in an afterlife). You don't," he said bluntly.

After he made that comment, Charlamagne Tha God asked if he's an atheist, and King when on to explain his long-held belief that he's openly talked about on "Larry King Live" in the past, which is that he's not a believer in God.

"I'm probably an atheist. Ah, I respect religion, I've interviewed every great religious leader except the Pope. ... I've interview the Billy Grahams and the heads of the Mormon Church. ... I don't buy it. I think the only reason for religion is death. If you didn't die, there would be no religion," said King.

[See attached article for the remaining paragraphs, and video footage of the interview with DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club...]

I know we can do this.
Introduction
I'm Franklin,the scientific method and the potential it has to improve the world, brings me joy. I no longer have political leanings and am overwhelmingly disgusted with consumer culture as technology has made them irrelevant. I don't think societies problems have solutions in past ideologies, laws, regulation or religions but I have faith in you and your ability to change and grow. Why? Because you are a human being (presumably) and we are all capable of amazing things.
