Regarding "Galileo was Satire"....he has a point. A lot of what got the vatican all riled up in the day was Galileo's style, his popularity among the common people, and abrasiveness with which he presented his point of view. The author's comment ,"..."Not about God or belief or high ideals, but about power and popularity," is very true. After all, what is a key tennant of the vatican; power and control. Publish ideas that erode their power and control, regardless of subject matter, and the vatican powers become concerned. It's control and power that religions crave, not truth. For if they craved truth, they would be long extinct by now.

Galileo was satire.
I like to ramble on when I read something like this, but I don't know what to say about this one. Take a look at the rest of the site, there's plenty to chew on.

Scientists have discovered water ice on an asteroid for the second time, suggesting that it is more common on space rocks in our solar system than previously thought.

Two research teams have found evidence of water ice and organic molecules on the asteroid 65 Cybele, just six months after discovering the same stuff on a different space rock — asteroid 24 Themis — for the first time. The results suggest that asteroids may have delivered much of these essential materials for life to the early Earth, the researchers said.

"This discovery suggests that this region of our solar system contains more water ice than anticipated," said Humberto Campins, of the University of Central Florida, in a statement. "And it supports the theory that asteroids may have hit Earth and brought our planet its water and the building blocks for life to form and evolve here.

The people here represent a massive intellectual base - and rarely (if ever) disagree: unlike (for example) Wikipedia which can be enlightening but also wildly inaccurate.
