I guess that archaeology uses scientific method for much of its investigation but there is also a great deal of imagination applied to deduce the purpose of many archaeological artifacts.I began…Continue

Frankie Dapper commented on Vangelis's blog post Volta, Galvani, Animal Electricity and the Nature of the Mind
"In the scheme of outlandish and unsubstantiated it seems rather an innocuous statement. Sure, AI may prove it false. But it is at base an endorsement of materialism. Materialism is consistent w science and at odds w theism. "

"And the Athenians had a similar system where they could put the names of officials they thought were corrupt in a bowl and vote them out. In fact, their punishment was exile for a certain period of time."

Vangelis replied to tom sarbeck's discussion Do You Want More Democracy Than You Have?
"That's true. In some ways they were more democratic in others, less. But let's not get on our high horse just yet. It was only 1920 that women got the vote in America. That's still less than 100 years ago."

The other day I went to my daughter’s mechatronics engineering lecture (ok, I do weird things to pass the time). I wanted to see what changes there have been over the years and to recapture some of my youthful memories. The lecture was about electrical engineering techniques for analysing circuits (eg Thevenin & Norton equivalent circuits, substitution, mesh analysis, etc) – memories flowed back like there was no tomorrow. And I realised, nothing had changed. The ratio of 4 females in a…

Atheist Foundation of Australia are at it again!

I'm beginning to think that the AFA is a little anachronistic organisation desperately trying to make itself seem relevant. It appears to be joining the ranks of the theists in making all sorts of unsupported scientific claims. Is it not enough just to be atheist? Is it not enough just to state that they lack belief in god(s)? Unfortunately for us besieged Australian atheists, it is not enough for them. The particular statement that sticks with me is the following:
