Teaching Creationism As Science Now Banned In Britain's Schools
In reality, there is no evidence, and never has been any evidence, that God exists... none, not a single shred, ever in the history of the human species.
The faith is strong in this one.
Your education is lacking.
Is the GPs statement that you've quoted wrong? If there is some evidence of the existence of a god, please let us know because if so, then I (and every other "non-believer") am obviously lacking some education as well.
Solar Impulse 2 Makes First Flight
If they want to fly around the world with it, wont they need to keep up with the sun, as that's it power source? If so, it'll need to go a lot faster than 30kt..
(Disclaimer - In /. fashion, I only read the summary, so if the article explains it, then I apologise.)
UK ISPs To Send Non-Threatening Letters To Pirates
The summary seems to suggest that there isn't much take up of this, with the comment, "Only four of the UKs ISPs have agreed to the 'Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme' so far".
I think its worth pointing out that those 4 ISPs cover nearly 94% of the market...
Fukushima Photo Essay: a Drone's Eye View
Just to be clear here: the devastation is all due to the tsunami, not to the reactor failure. Foreign media seem to often forget or ignore that the disaster was the earthquake and tsunami. That's what killed almost 20k people dead and destroyed the homes of many hundreds of thousands of people.
Seems like TFA forgot that too.
Quote - "Tomioka is the closest thing we have ever seen to a nuclear wasteland."
Except it isnt, its an earthquake and tsunami wasteland..
1GB of Google Drive Storage Now Costs Only $0.02 Per Month
I use 'grive' myself, while not as good as the linux dropbox client, it does the job okay for my backups..
Japanese Firm Proposes Microwave-Linked Solar Plant On the Moon
Yes, I don't however see any data on their website about how wide they are planning to build the ring out.
From the website:-
"1. Lunar solar cells
To ensure continuous generation of power, an array of solar cells will extend like a belt along the entire 11,000km lunar equator. This belt will grow in width from a few kilometers to 400km."
Edward Snowden's Lawyer Claims Harassment From Heathrow Border Agent
This right here is the problem we in the UK have with attitudes to EU immigration, the belief that the UK is somehow a glorious land of opportunity that the unwashed masses of the EU are clamouring to get into.
As a Brit, I can tell you it isn't, and if it wasn't for the ties of my family here, I would be long gone..
NSF Report Flawed; Americans Do Not Believe Astrology Is Scientific
As a Brit who spent some time working with an American recently, I would agree with you. We both found that the differences between the US and UK language is more than just an accent.
EU Parliament Rejects Asylum For Snowden
As our (UK) government seems so insistent on passing laws to undermine any sort of civil liberty we may have had and basically falling over itself to be the US's lapdog, while alienating us from the rest of the world, it seems to me that the EU is our best chance for undoing some of that damage.
They may not be very good, but there a damn sight better than our government (including the opposition parties).
Valve Offers Free Subscription To Debian Developers: Paying It Forward
I'm not so sure, from my reading of it they're giving away the Valve Complete pack, which they tend to sell for next to nothing every time there's a Steam sale anyway..
My guess is most people interested in these games will already have them.
20,000 Customers Have Pre-Ordered Over $2,000,000 of Soylent
I think the existence of McDonalds shows that FDA approval is optional.
Why Charles Stross Wants Bitcoin To Die In a Fire
The link to Fourier's gangrene on Wikipedia is totally unnecessary, and the article includes an image that is decidedly not safe for work.
Fortunately, I made the rare step of RTFA, where Mr Stross added "(NSFL danger: do not click that link)", which appears to not be in the summary..
SteamOS Will Be Available For Download On December 13
Why is this modded down? Reliance on Windows is exactly why SteamOS is being developed and is personally my main reason for wanting to try it..
Two Supermassive Black Holes About To Embrace
At which point are they actually considered to be "embracing"? When the event horizons merge, or the singularities?
Researchers Use Computer-Generated 10-Year-Old Girl To Catch Online Predators
You know, that might actually be a safer outlet for these peoples urges.. It might even prevent real children being abused.
Lost Star Wars Footage Found On LaserDisc
Yeah, maybe my memories of it are fuzzy (I was 7 when I first saw it at the cinema), but I always thought that not only did Han shoot first, Greedo never shot at all..
First Evidence Found of a Comet Strike On Earth
They'd be so stoned they wouldn't even notice. (Hah! Did I just make a double pun there?)
Apparently not, going by the mod points..
Fusion Reactor Breaks Even
Granted, few general-purpose new sources are particularly good when it comes to their coverage of science, but the BBC does have a bit of a reputation for being above average--a reputation which seems to be rather undeserved, as far as I can tell.
I agree that the BBC doesn't really deserve the good reputation it has and I think it has it because in an era of such bad journalism, its easy to look good.
Valve Officially Launches Steam For Linux
While I agree with most of your post, I'm not sure where your SPISPOPD info comes from. The name came from a joke on a newsgroup discussion about Doom's name in the weeks before its release in 1993, while the Smashing Pumpkins formed in 1988, five years earlier. In fact they even added samples from Doom in one of their songs in reference to the joke.
How We'll Get To 54.5 Mpg By 2025
I drive a Toyota Corolla Verso, 7-seater, 2.2 litre diesel engine. Drives really well and has loads of power when you need it. It also has tons of room inside for storage/kids/etc.. I regularly get better than 50 MPG out of it.
