Very smart answer by Sri Nija: 
"Me: Hey god! Who do you think created you?
God: Jeez! No one created me!!
Me: So, does that make you an Atheist?
God: $&*^&$"

"Once the fantasy of science fiction, jetpacks are now very much a reality, and Swiss fighter pilot turned 'Jetman' Yves Rossy has been posting some incredible videos of himself putting them to good use. His latest sees him soaring over Dubai, performing a synchronised aerial display with a plane and flying alongside Aerobatics Champion Veres Zoltán. His jetpack doesn't bear much resemblance to the one envisioned in Bond movie Thunderball, really being more of a jetwing, which is strapped with engines that sit either side of the flyer."

From the article:
"The results of such secular child-rearing are encouraging. Studies have found that secular teenagers are far less likely to care what the “cool kids” think, or express a need to fit in with them, than their religious peers. When these teens mature into “godless” adults, they exhibit less racism than their religious counterparts, according to a 2010 Duke University study. Many psychological studies show that secular grownups tend to be less vengeful, less nationalistic, less militaristic, less authoritarian and more tolerant, on average, than religious adults."
" Another meaningful related fact: Democratic countries with the lowest levels of religious faith and participation today — such as Sweden, Denmark, Japan, Belgium and New Zealand — have among the lowest violent crime rates in the world and enjoy remarkably high levels of societal well-being. If secular people couldn't raise well-functioning, moral children, then a preponderance of them in a given society would spell societal disaster. Yet quite the opposite is the case."
More children are “growing up godless” than at any other time in our nation's history. They are the offspring of an expanding secular population that includes a relatively new and burgeoning category of Americans called the “Nones,” so nicknamed because they identified themselves as believing in “nothing in particular” in a 2012 study by the Pew Research Center .

Yes I have. Someone already shared it in Secular Parenting. It's definitely encouraging. Now if we can only get religious people to understand the advantages of a secular lifestyle.

Thanks for the heads up +Dan Eastwood!

From the page:
"We are delighted to report that technology inventor Elon Musk, creator of Tesla and SpaceX, has decided to donate $10M to the Future of Life Institute to run a global research program aimed at keeping AI beneficial to humanity."

"There is now a broad consensus that AI research is progressing steadily, and that its impact on society is likely to increase. A long list of leading AI-researchers have signed an open letter calling for research aimed at ensuring that AI systems are robust and beneficial, doing what we want them to do. Musk's donation aims to support precisely this type of research: "Here are all these leading AI researchers saying that AI safety is important", says Elon Musk. "I agree with them, so I'm today committing $10M to support research aimed at keeping AI beneficial for humanity." "
FLI catalyzes, supports, and disseminates research on questions at the foundations of physics and cosmology, particularly new frontiers and innovative ideas integral to a deep understanding of reality, but unlikely to be supported by conventional funding sources.

"Dark energy is an unknown form of energy that is proposed to drive the accelerated expansion of the universe. A new study by University of Georgia professor Edward Kipreos suggests that changes in how people think about time dilation—the slowing of time predicted by Albert Einstein—can provide an alternate explanation of dark energy."
 
Can Lorenz time dilation protect the universe from the big rip?

No.  This article is wrong.

"CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is set to be switched back on in March — hoping that a £97 million upgrade could push it to even greater discoveries, after it found the “God particle” in 2012."

"The second three year run of the huge atom smasher will begin in March 2015. The Large Hadron Collider has been switched off since its last run finished in 2012."
