Recently, there was a forum on religion and science at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, attended by a number of brilliant people who have obviously walked by the philosophy section of their campus bookstores without picking up a copy of anything.
The meeting was, expectedly, weighted toward skepticism, with the vocal Richard Dawkins, the evolutionary biologist from Oxford, who wrote "The God Delusion," in attendance to inform us, ""I am utterly fed up with the ...› Continue reading

Above all else, the war on terror is the greatest challenge we face today. It is also the most important issue facing America today. Anything else can be fixed. The war on terror cannot.

I have the blessing and the curse of growing up in an
old-fashioned Italian-American family. Don't get me wrong, I am
eternally grateful to know I have parents who always looked out

couldn't afford, and handed me the keys to try again.
Selfishly, I put them through my adolescent wild stages - the
under-age drinking, the sneaking out of the house to go out ...› Continue reading

Every year, I receive many phone calls from parents wanting to
purchase Venus Flytraps for their kids' science project. I ask
them what type of experiment that they are doing, and usually it
is about what type of food source will keep the traps closed. I
patiently listen to what they have to say, and then I share with
them three reasons why Venus Flytraps might make for a poor test
1. Venus Flytraps are usually dormant when school is in

Family tradition and religious beliefs are two factors
that will always influence a person's decisions in the dating
world. There are many pressures in the dating world as is,
without the added stress of family influence and family
expectations. For many cultures and religious groups, pressure
is put on individuals to date someone from their own culture,
ethnic background or religion. This really limits the
opportunities for a connection with another person.

Could life have evolved by accident? Are we alone in the
universe? These are the questions which have pounded the
consciousness of individuals. Plus this no less persistent
question: What is the purpose of life? Dinosaurs have come and
gone. Modern man—Homo sapiens—has landed on the
moon. Satellites map our solar system. New planets are being
discovered on a regular basis. New theories proposed. Old ones
discredited. Genetics, a new field of study—though not so
new—ready ...› Continue reading
