Kelly McGonigal explains: __________ At the end of this YouTube TED talk, in interview with the host, McGonigal offers two take-away recommendations: pursue meaning in your life, not the avoidance of stress; and trust yourself to cope with the stress … Continue reading
Here’s the two-fold problem: (1) each of us is limited to a body we did not choose and that dies, and (2) science since Darwin has revealed living things to be machines that evolve by competition (the proteins in cells, … Continue reading
It doesn’t mean peace with Iran, but it’s a first step. And Iran is one of the big reasons I supported so vigorously President Obama’s reelection in 2012. I didn’t want to see a war between the United States and … Continue reading
A pastor in Colorado apparently thinks the above image scores big points against evolution, writing the following: This snowflake was photographed in Russia. Is this not a most amazing picture? Let’s see, this is either the result of evolution or … Continue reading

In an off-year election when the make-up of the electorate is maximally conservative (in terms of turn-out), Terry McAuliffe still won Virginia’s governorship last night. Think about that. He was a deeply, deeply flawed and unattractive candidate running in a … Continue reading
Then they started Skyping:
Atheist v. religionist. The old (inconclusive) back-and-forth. I hope the Supreme Court sides with the atheists on this one. And as an agnostic, if these sorts of prayers get upheld, I want my turn on the invocation list. If someone … Continue reading
Ruy Teixeira explains: How bad could 2016 be for Republicans? Pretty bad. Start with the likelihood that minorities, who voted 80 percent for Obama, will increase by 2 points to 30 percent of voters. Add to that the continued growth of heavily … Continue reading
