Is Science a Religion?Back to videos I'm more comfortable with ^_^
Morality in the Bible
If morality comes from one god who has existed throughout time, why isn't morality transcendent of time and culture? Why does morality continuously change?
Things I Need to Get Better AtBut where's the time?
-Become more knowledgeable in local politics
-Basic solution standardization calculations
-Apparently I need to become more savvy with TEM grid prep procedures
-Brush up on general chemistry and organic chemistry
-Calculus and differential equations!
-Knowledge in international politics could be better
-More familiarity with unix
I'll grow the list as I think of them. I wish I could just have all summer to sit down and figure out the things I've gotten rusty with and refresh myself. What things do you wish you had time to get better at (or remember)?
New LaptopWoo! Just bought it today. I didn't feel like spending more than 2k on a similarly nice Macbook Pro, so I bought a Samsung QX410 with an i5 processor, 4GB ram and a graphics card that will allow me to play Mass Effect 2, Fallout 3, etc. $700. The laptop's main purpose is school work and analytical software, of course But it's nice that it can play some games, too.

Atheists Know More About Religion than the Religious, Studies ShowTaken from USA Today Article:
http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/*******-28-pew28_ST_N.htm PM me for the address, or google "USA today atheists"
"The top scoring groups were atheists/agnostics[20.9 correct], Jews[20.5 correct] and Mormons[20.3 correct]. These tiny groups, adding up to less than 7% of Americans, scored particularly well on world religion and U.S. constitutional questions. It's unclear why, although highly educated people overall did best on the quiz, researchers say.
It may be that the conscious choice to take a minority faith or philosophic stand requires an intellectual engagement with religion to a greater degree than experienced by Protestants and Catholics, who dominate U.S. culture. Eight in 10 atheists and agnostics grew up in a religious tradition, chiefly a branch of Christianity, says Greg Smith, a Pew senior researcher."
Would anyone like to share their 2 cents on this "phenomenon?"
