New evidence about addiction isn't just a challenge to us politically. It doesn't just force us to change our minds. It forces us to change our hearts.

Scientists find the first ever four-legged snake, which lived at the time of the dinosaurs and probably dug burrows.

"We have already compared the benefits of theology and science. When the theologian governed the world, it was covered with huts and hovels for the many, palaces and cathedrals for the few. To nearly all the children of men, reading and writing were unknown arts. The poor were clad in rags and skins -- they devoured crusts, and gnawed bones. The day of Science dawned, and the luxuries of a century ago are the necessities of to-day. Men in the middle ranks of life have more of the conveniences and elegancies than the princes and kings of the theological times. But above and over all this, is the development of mind. There is more of value in the brain of an average man of to-day -- of a master-mechanic, of a chemist, of a naturalist, of an inventor, than there was in the brain of the world four hundred years ago.
     These blessings did not fall from the skies. These benefits did not drop from the outstretched hands of priests. They were not found in cathedrals or behind altars -- neither were they searched for with holy candles. They were not discovered by the closed eyes of prayer, nor did they come in answer to superstitious supplication. They are the children of freedom, the gifts of reason, observation and experience -- and for them all, man is indebted to man."
-- Robert Green Ingersoll, "God In The Constitution"

+Jeff Ehrhart  The evils of science is such a mind blowing idea to me.  The only place I can even fathom the idea is in the realm of nuclear weapons.  I'd be happy to do without out nuclear anything to be rid of nuclear weapons.
Darwin was taught in schools and creation was taught in some churches and no one I knew ever had a problem with that.  Science was part of becoming educated.

  As far as God, I guess I fit in the agnostic category.  Being from the south with God/churches so integral to so many, although not so much in my family,  I can't just wipe it away, but at the same time, I came to the conclusion a long time ago there was just no way anyone could really know and never would be. At least not in a way to prove it to me.  I respect that others raised in that tradition believe in it on faith and it is their right.  It's to intangible for my mind.  I've seen a lot of good come from religion but at least as much bad.  Mostly I don't worry about it. It is what it is. 

But if there is a God I am pretty sure he endowed us with the gifts we have in order for us to use them - and probably to use them for the betterment of this world, or at least I like to think so.

India has 1.2 BILLION people, and hundreds of millions still lack electricity.  India also has THOUSANDS of miles of canals which carry river water and groundwater to farms.  Much of this canal water evaporates due to the hot climate in India. So ingeniously, India has begun to install solar panels across the tops of their canals. This will create enormous amounts of electricity without sacrificing farmland which feeds a huge population. And the solar panels will conserve water by keeping water in the canals shaded and cool. Greatly reducing evaporation. The climate crisis can be solved if we are willing to open our eyes and think creatively. 
Saving water while producing electricity.

Foolish boy.  Moccasins are wicked bad-ass snakes.  He's lucky he's alive.

How do we get out of this MESS?

from +Bernie Sanders' recent interview in the Washington Post:
  "So we have to very straightforwardly and unashamedly address this wealth inequality. We have come up with some tax proposals already, which begins that process – a transaction tax on Wall Street, a program that would end the ability of corporations to stash their money in the Cayman Islands.. 
  When we are seeing a massive redistribution of wealth since 1985 from the middle class to the top one tenth of one percent, our economic goals have got to be to redistribute that wealth back to the people who had it. How do you do that? You start, you have to create decent-paying jobs. I have introduced legislation that would spend about $1 trillion over the next five years to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. That would create about 13 million new jobs and maintain some jobs. Clearly, we’ve got to raise the minimum wage to a living wage, which would be $15 an hour. We need pay equity for women."    http://goo.gl/Ent4Q4         http://goo.gl/f6e9Fb

I bought several fish from the Battlefield location a couple of weeks ago (Sept. 9), brought them home, let the bag warm to the tank temperature, and then put them in the tank. After about a week I started seeing spots from ich show up on my fish, and it had infected the fish I originally had in the tank as well. So I started treating the ich, and then some of the fish started developing some kind of fungal disease, so I treated that too. Now, three weeks after I first bought those fish, I've lost 7 fish total (make that nine now, I just found two more), and I only bought 5 from the pet store (only one of them have survived), and the others still look sick. I think I'm going to end up losing every fish in the tank. The best advice I can give you is DON'T BUY YOUR PETS FROM THESE PEOPLE!!! They sell diseased animals that will infect your other pets and you'll end up spending more to treat their illnesses than you originally paid for the animals in the first place.
