    Can science explain why I'm a pessimist?

    Twin studies are always fascinating to me and this story includes research on twins regarding attitude/outlook. Although the research on genes being switched on or off due to personal experience is fascinating, I wonder if that can occur later in life? I think I'm more optimistic now than when...

    Seperation - Church/State

    I want to start off by saying that I believe that there is a God, so don't take this as a militant post against that notion. This is also totally in my opinion. I just want to put my thoughts on this subject out there to gain a better understanding of what others think on the topic and of my...

    Abortion: Science or Legalisms

    IMHO, the big problem with the discussion about Abortion in America today is that it always revolves around legal decisions and not scientific fact, something Rick Santorum pointed out not too long ago. Scientifically, the "fetus" is a human being: He/She has human blood, human flesh, human...

    Is Religion accepting Science?

    From the latest I've heard, religions are now starting to look upon science as a way of describing Gods work, rather than its enemy - I guess this is because it makes religion seem to make more sense. Forgetting the film Angels & Demons, there doesn't appear to be many 'attacks' between...

    Nobel Prize Awards - science or fiction?

    I can't understand how those guys on the Nobel Prize Committees decide on their awards. So far I have nothing against Obama, but giving him a Nobel Peace Prize completely puzzles me. The guy has scarcely been in his job for 9 months, and I have not seen any active brokering of peace agreements...
