Cloud chamber my son and I built showing ionizing radiation (tracks)from a smoke detector containing americium 241. Emits ionizing alpha particles and low energy gamma radiation. Other source here are welding electrodes containing 2% thorium. Other small thin tracks are background radiation and some cosmic rays.

Something every Canadian should read.

If you believe the earth is 6000 years old, and we live in end times, that "should" disqualify you from running as a candidate. The "theo-cons" (Stephen Harper's word), who view "science and environmentalism as hostile to the Bible."
The church that Harper has belonged to for three decades - the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church whom "adherents believe that the Bible is ‘inerrant' and the Second Coming is 'imminent'."

There's a supposed separation of Church and State. But has that eroded under right-wing evangelical religion's influence on the Harper government?

"to not believe in God is to know that it falls to us to make the world a better place." - Sam Harris

“Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life.

- John Lennon
