The LHC is beginning to collect evidence for the elusive Higgs Boson. “Scientists are hoping that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will finally nail Higgs boson — the “God particle” which theoretically endowed every other particle with mass, but has proved elusive to date. The discovery of Higgs boson is one of the chief […]Continue reading
Well, explained more than F-you, I’ve got mine. Gleaned from Pharyngula, a post from Jadehawk. I think that it’s possible to have libertarian values and still like things like governments and taxes and social programs. yup. That’s called being liberal, progressive, or even anarcho-syndicalist, depending on the exact ratio of “libertarian” values to government/taxes/social programs […]Continue reading
You would think by now we could progress past the idea that scary storms are tantrums of the gods and that tsunami are not any godheads’ perverted act of ‘retribution’ or similar horsepucky. One would think that, but just listen to the small snippits of christian talk radio Thunderf00t talks about and let the batshite […]Continue reading
Pushing the limits of our knowledge is what science is all about. Consider what NASA is learning about thunderstorms and their possible role in creating anti-matter. Fascinating stuff! Filed under: Science Tagged: NASA, Science, Thunderstorms & Anti-matterContinue reading
The idea that religion is harmless and that it is good for people, is patently false. The raging torrent of evil shit that religion is responsible for claims more victims every second we allow magical thinking to be acceptable and “OK” in our society. It is a double header today, two videos for the […]Continue reading

I cannot believe that this is the only recording of this particular song. I apologize for the poor video quality, but then again, the sound is fairly good, as well as the choir and soloist. This piece was also performed in Kaslo, and I have the intention to learn the solo and perform it with […]Continue reading

When one searches for “Feminism Canada” it is surprising that the REAL Women of Canada website comes up so quickly. They indeed must have their google-fu locked and loaded because the shite they are peddling is quite amazing. On abortion, they have the anti-choice playbook covered and pretty much have the standard fetus-fetish boilerplate […]Continue reading

I love choir. The people, the music, the practising and the good stress of being put in a position where one has to focus and do a myriad of things well. How am I standing? Is my posture correct, is my belly loose and larynx low? Am I breathing correctly? What is the next […]Continue reading
A big thank you to PZ Myers for finding this video on youtube. Reposted here so the intrepid DWR audience can calmly sit and watch the spectacle of smart and rational people spout silliness and spin in rhetorical circles, all the while, making up bullshite stories to justify their belief in magic and vainly attempting to […]Continue reading
Inequality tears societies apart. The concentration of wealth in Western societies is getting out of hand. The fact that our democratic institution have been bought out and now represent only elite monied opinion bodes ill for society. The sort of inequality represented below represent a great threat to the social fabric of the United States […]Continue reading
These are short pieces in which two different melodies are played simultaneously. Usually, the right hand plays the higher voice, and the left hand plays the lower one. In each Bach invention, there is a motive (a short musical idea) that is repeated in various forms – each time slightly different, and is developed through […]Continue reading

I’m always a bit flabbergasted when people start making pronouncements about moral issues and backing up their claims with biblical proof. You may as well be saying that your beliefs are decisively supported by the ham sandwich you had for lunch. Qualia Soup dissects the inanity and lack of intellectual rigour of theists who claim […]Continue reading
I just keep posting about gender inequality, others say pfffff! what the heck I am talking about….
Until the idea that inequality exists and that it is a problem,then there really is not much to discuss now, is there?

Prison is not supposed to be a walk in the beach. I understand that. People that commit offences need to be consequenced for their transgressions against what society deems to be the proper set of standards. Consequences should not include psychological torture, self-mutilation and degradation. “Supermax prisoners’ daily lives are chock full of alienating and […]Continue reading
