Commenting in discussion threads takes time and thought, but I won't bother if I think there's a good chance you'll pack up and go home — taking the whole thread with you.

Hello Mr. Jenkins.

Daniel Ray here. I saw that our exchange and its subsequent deletion has been turned into a blog entry.

If you would like to continue our discussion, I would be more than willing.

Please forgive my social media faux paus and please recognize there is far more going on in my life right now. Deleting the thread and canceling my FB account were the only options I had at present. The mistake was in writing and posting the thread in the first place.

Huge transitional period from employment to full-time student, a household move from California to Texas, car repair, dental work and two writing project deadlines, tutoring students and saying good-bye to family and friends here in California.

Facebook went from a diversion to a detriment very quickly and I have lost an inordinate amount of time (days, in fact) in research, writing and getting everything together for the move.

I knew better when I began the thread.

Again, my apologies. If you wish to e-mail me you may do so a psalm1968@gmail.com.

Thank you.

Daniel Ray

Proof? You want proof? I'll give you proof! I saw it in a dream so I know it's true!

There's a road near Portsmouth (UK) that contains a weird portal to the future. Occasionally, if you look through half-closed eyes, you get a fleeting glimpse of the same road at a future time.

I can tell you, therefore, that the cars of the future go extremely fast, and they hover slightly above the road without the use of wheels. And the bike of the future is a kind of hover-scooter.

How psychic is Sally's embarrassment? Is Scientology targeting the gullible? Are we wasting our efforts? Is hypoxia the ultimate experience? And are we dealing with the real issues, conceptually speaking?

We are delighted to welcome back Simon Singh to Portsmouth Skeptics.

Simon Singh, author of Fermat's Last Theorem and Big Bang, talks about his latest book, which explores mathematical themes hidden in The Simpsons.

Everyone knows that The Simpsons is the most successful show in television history, but very few people realise that its team of mathematically gifted writers have used the show to explore everything from calculus to geometry, from pi to game theory, and from infinitesimals to infinity. Singh will also discuss how writers of Futurama have similarly made it their missions to smuggle deep mathematical ideas into the series.

For generations, people have tried to find ways of testing whether someone is lying. From highly dubious tests for a witch, to the invention of the polygraphs used by the CIA and the new covert phonic detection algorithms and sophisticated truth serums of today. Will explores their development, whether it's really possible to beat them & demonstrates them with a live interrogation.

Will Watling runs Cheltenham SitP which he started in Nov 2010. When he's not designing wealth management software, he's running kids from A to B, or walking his two Cocker spaniels. He did a joint honors degree in RE and Science and has a keen interest in topics like evolution vs creation and the phenomenon of belief, especially cults. He also speaks at SitP on "The Omega Course - how to decommit from Christianity" and "An Intro to 3D photography & film making". He loves adrenaline sports and has a) shark dived with 8ft greys, b) skydived, c) raced Formula Renault at Thruxton & d) built a 1 man helium airship to take photos of landmarks from a birds eye view... which one hasn't happened yet?
