Interesting take on creationist motivations.
HBO released a new, hour-long documentary Monday night—Darwin's birthday is today—called Questioning Darwin, and if you can spare an hour to watch it, I highly recommend it. The documentarians juxtapose interviews with creationists about what they believe and why they believe it with historians ...

Cool brief article on an attempt to put a backdoor in Linux in 2003.  Very innocuous. 
Josh wrote recently about a serious security bug that appeared in Debian Linux back in 2006, and whether it was really a backdoor inserted by the NSA. (He concluded that it probably was not.) Today I want to write about another incident, in 2003, in which someone tried to backdoor the Linux ...

Wow.  I'm almost halfway through this, and it turns out there's a lot more to Nietzsche than I previously thought.  The most interesting thing so far to me is that Christianity is a "slave morality" as opposed to Homeric heroes, who have a "master morality".  In the Homeric tradition, heroism, strength, courage, etc are virtues, because it was designed by people in control of their world.  In the Christian tradition, meekness, humility, powerlessness, etc are virtues, because it was designed by people who were oppressed.

I never looked at it like that before. Interesting...
Also the Greek method better suits a small community of individuals, where Chrisianity is better suited for large cities of people where independant heroes running around would disrupt the whole group.
Even farther down the analysis - soldiers in Greece had to think on their feet more due to more skirmish battles, where the Christian (Roman) mindset was cogs in a wheel for big formation battles.
