I think it is important to note that in the 80's, Steven Weinberg wrote something to the effect of "It is shame that the Big Bang Theory is the most likely form of cosmology, since that theory most resembles the description in Genesis."

The ultra conservative Christian people people do not scare me much. I get where they are coming from ( mostly, of course there is the occasional Westborro church ) and most just want to believe what they believe and teach their kids so.

The scary people are the people who make science their religion usually without knowing what the science says and also criticising religion without knowing what the religion says. Or knowing who the scientist they make their new high priests are. They might as well be following Immanuel Velikovsky.

This is a big con by the Obama administration. They create a rule to ban a hundred year old practice, because it might be unsafe. You would think that after 100 years there would be clear evidence that it is unsafe.

In the meantime it also means beef prices will rise. Which is the real plan, spearheaded by thunder-thighs Michelle. This along with the attack on the Bundy ranch, destroying 100 cows--and denying their meat to the market, a quick BotE calculation shows one cow produces enough meat for a family of four for a couple of years--is a plan not only to deny school kids decent lunches but to prevent their buying burgers after school.

In the meantime, we had a system for recycling waste that was ideal. No machine, no artificial process-- just totally natural, and we tear that up to waste good animal feed.

As I've said before many environmentalists are green only when it's convenient.

Comment: Research. (Score 4, Insightful) 105

I think a major point is wasted. Certain researchers fund their research by teaching. Recently I read some blog, ( I'll try to find it ), where a mathematician asked that if Calculus is replaced by video lectures, how will mathematicians find the money to continue doing their research?

I'm not saying that we should continue to force students to listen to crappy lectures by teachers that only give lectures cause it funds their research. What I am saying is that research is often times important and we need an alternate way of funding it.

> having programmed in VB for the last 8 years doing kernel level programming

Especially since 8 years before WIn2K would place him someplace around VB3, and SMP was supported around NT 3.5 that way before this. And Reiserfs did exist at theat time. XFS and JFS were already available albeit as patches, and that filesystems technically are not supported in the kernel in either Linux or Windows. Or at the time Fortune 500 companies were using mostly mainframes and Suns for servers.

Someone should tell Satya you "get what you pay for" and tell him to pay more for their trolls. This guy sounds as clueless as a person claiming to be a physicist calling into Art Bell .

Does he really think curtailing guns will stop mass killings?
Try banning stupidity like this:
  strange stoy on anti-tea party site, since I expect there are more like this on tea party sites.
Maybe then there will be less anger.
Of course he won't speak out against that because in his wacked out state that would violate first amendment rights. So instead he proposed to flush the second amendment down the toilet.

The first version always gets thrown away.
