Wolpe's allegorical argument (minute 1:14:48) about the scientist in a black & white room, has a logical flaw. If she were indeed a vision expert who had never seen colour, she would have discovered the retina's cones & asked herself what they were for. Right?

In a country as Christian as the U.S. how is it possible that Sharpton, a bona-fide moron, is one of their top spokesmen? (He knows less about theology than Hitchens & hasn't the first idea how to debate...)

I can't believe Chopra's claptrap can earn him enough for such expensive hairdos!

But if the laws of entropy apply; no closed system can produce as much energy as it consumes--& the universe is a closed system--then, isn't it inevitable that, eventually, there will be stasis, the cessation of all movement & the even distribution of energy in unordered form, throughout the universe?

Wasn't it Leibnitz who established that without a minimum of two objects moving in relation to each other, there is no time?

If so, how can, as Krauss posits, the universe expand infinitely & be, therefore, eternal?

People can "cross over" on the other side & back, I have seen it on more than two times the trouble with this is it can not go on forever as a part of you stays over on the other side and life here is never the same. A choice must be made. What went on with my friend (& I) was he went over week with someone in spirit of the dark side. I was stronger & had better protection. It sounds crazy (& is!) but true! I lived to tell, my pal still  will pop by when I need help.

Interesting. The little we can hear of the piece sounds lovely. (Shame about the camera work ;)

On the point of the need for religion to buttress morality, it is difficult for Hitchens (or Dawkins for that matter) to argue since there appears to be nothing to compare religious society to. But I do see a control group: Sweden. In Sweden 85% are religiously non-affiliated & yet have lower crime rates (half) than the U.S. which is somewhere between 76 & 85% Christian. If crime can be considered a measure of morality then it seems that in the world's sociological laboratory, atheists are more good than the religious.

Prancing dwarves? You've got to be kidding! Where was this shot?

I just discovered where Dr Chopra gets his theory about how cells' interaction with their environment proves their consciousness. It belongs to Neil Theise (http://vimeo.com/44013533).  Although I find it unconvincing I could, unlike Dr Chopra, explain it if called upon to do so.

Story
Introduction

Born in Los Angeles in 1962 Paul has been painting since he was old enough to hold a brush. His parents: Victor Herman, now deceased, and his mother: Joni Di Pirro, are both artists.

Paul’s childhood developed his taste for travel as his parents moved from Paul’s birthplace while he was still a baby, to Morocco, Sicily, Malta, eventually settling for Paul’s primary schooling in Florence, Italy. Paul’s father was an obsessed painter who didn’t always provide his family with food, but seldom ran out of paint. Paul later studied art in London & New York, but at sixteen he had already fled the nest to find himself drawing portraits of tourists on the streets of London’s Piccadilly Circus. After a long and somewhat wild youth in Holland, India, Spain, France, England and both U.S. coasts, Paul finally admitted his calling and hasn’t looked back since. He claims to have never suffered a creative block nor any diminution of fascination for a white canvas or lump of marble, Paul says: "The most important painting I have ever done is always the one I am about to do."

When pressed to define his style Paul admits to roots in the Renaissance with impressionist influence, but more telling is his statement: “I remember seeing kids at University looking for their style before they even had the tools or, for that matter, anything to say. I realize I have always tried to simply, and honestly, paint what I see but as I grow older I notice I always make the same mistakes; I have decided that is my style.”

Paul’s portraits go beyond a simple likeness to capture the story of the sitter’s life written on their faces, their postures, their gaze. His murals go beyond the decorative and his copies go beyond the surface to the techniques used by the original artist.

Paul’s clients include Bel-Air and Malibu homes of celebrities I am not allowed to mention here, Saks Fifth Avenue in New York and Beverly Hills, the Ikeda museum in Japan, portraits of European nobility and murals in some of Marbella’s best homes.
