Funny that we focus on the robot, not the fact that Lockheed is building blimps. I feel vindicated in my view that blimps are the only way a hydrogen economy makes sense :)

A permanent magnet is an object made from a material that is magnetized and creates its own persistent magnetic field. An everyday example is a refrigerator magnet used to hold notes on a refrigerator door. Materials that can be magnetized, which are also the ones that are strongly attracted to a magnet, are called ferromagnetic (or ferrimagnetic). These include iron, nickel, cobalt, some alloys of rare earth metals, and some naturally occurring minerals such as lodestone. Although ferromagnetic (and ferrimagnetic) materials are the only ones attracted to a magnet strongly enough to be commonly considered magnetic, all other substances respond weakly to a magnetic field, by one of several other types of magnetism

It's sad that even such an enlightened call for the historical understanding of the influence of Christianity completely misses out on the politics of it. The complete irrelevance of the bible itself in comparison to councils, encyclicas, and diaspora. Never mind the interaction with Islam both during its early expansion and the crusades. Nor the later interaction with Judaism when we imported Jews as money lenders, an action that sadly culminated in the death of millions of Jews in WWII and millions of Palestinians afterwards.

How not to read the Bible like a jerk, as in the last two methods. I'm not here to push a specific denomination.

Social Commentary: War.

The earliest evidence of war belongs to the Mesolithic cemetery Site 117, which has been determined to be approximately 14,000 years old. About forty-five percent of the skeletons there displayed signs of violent death. Since the rise of the state some 5,000 years ago, military activity has occurred over much of the globe. The advent of gunpowder and the acceleration of technological advances led to modern warfare. According to Conway W. Henderson, "One source claims that 14,500 wars have taken place between 3500 BC and the late 20th century, costing 3.5 billion lives, leaving only 300 years of peace."

I can't believe they don't have the ring from Ringworld or a Dyson sphere!
