Coup in Catalonia?

I may be wrong and I would be delighted if this were so, but what is happening in Catalonia, seems to me like a coup. Due to an illegal referendum, the independence is proclaimed here in Parliament. Due to a referendum, which should never have been held and it was not clear whether the votes…

On Sunday we will collectively become younger

It’s that time again, but this time in the right direction. On Sunday, the clocks change. The terminology, however, still not clear to me quite so, they will be reset before it? If they are presented, so the time is now numerically before regular time? Or they are adjusted, so so that it lags behind…

In many Western countries, the amount of insects in recent decades has declined sharply. The superficial some people may look forward initially, because the crawling creatures so are not for everyone. Cryptically an ecological disaster is here but probably at. In Krefeld, Germany the amount of insects was measured since 1989 and this has since…

Do we need God for morality and ethics?

Morals and ethical concepts are not necessarily tied to the belief in the one God. Even without this faith we come to ethical decisions and to continue to function. Often or perhaps always, however, one comes to utilitarian, ethical concepts. According to which the majority is always right, no matter whether it has actually legal….

Easy easy

The word simply/easy has an unnoticed economy in the language and in everyday use. It has crept so and it seems as if you could break down everything in a simple manner and solved by using this word. These are precisely the things that are not simply in which this word is used as a…

Kids & Jazz

Hurray, the wolves are back! In Germany, more and more wolves will gradually sifted and some environmentalists are pleased with this new, supposedly ecological happiness and balance.

Carrot pants and frog legs

One can be visually hurt? The question is not really meant seriously, but seriously: If you grew up in the 70s, was considered in terms of pants Cowboy Style, bootcut pants that were always ready below. Eventually, they agreed on the Levi’s 501, which after all has a straight and elegant cut. If you look…

Child poverty in Germany

More than one in five children in Germany is considered poor. Sometimes this poverty is only temporary, for several years, for example. Pleasant for those affected, the whole is certainly in any way. Here, however, poverty is not meant in comparison to other countries, not for example, a poor country in Africa, but the relative…

Epicurus and Zeno

In the ancient Greek philosophy, there are two opposites. One of them was the philosopher Epicurus, who said that the world is composed of atoms and the human soul as well, albeit for very fine atoms. Once the atomic compounds dissolve that make up the soul, so also the soul automatically disband itself. So there…

Small natural wonders

If you currently go into nature, to get in front of him, as in a great painting. Different shades of color light up a counter, fresh green, plain green, dark green, yellow, orange and orange-brown. Behind this sometimes blue sky, sometimes a little hazy. As you can marvel at the wonders of nature and is…

Blade Runner 2049

25 years ago was the first part of Blade Runner, which was supplemented by a second, equally dark and equally well-made movie this year. It is a dystopia drawn, in the one hand, people live, parallel to them, the artificially bred people who replicants. These need to be kept low, because otherwise there could be…

IQOS

Smoking has long been considered cool, but nowadays it is considered strictly unsexy and almost anti-social. Not without reason by the way. For it increases if you smoke, the likelihood either seriously ill even to cardiovascular problems or cancer or to gift his environment with such diseases. Some time ago I read in the print…

Religion is something that is created by the personal socialization basically. It is characterized by the parents, family, friends, school, society and the secret educators, namely the media.

gravitational waves

A few days ago has been able to prove something that had theoretically postulated about 100 years ago Albert Einstein formulated, but which he was not sure whether it would ever be able to really prove. Gravitational waves are effectively a barely perceptible tremors in space. They are formed when two neutron stars merge. This…

Post from Michigan

Yesterday I received an email from Michigan, United States. The aim was to imagine one side, namely on Hildegard von Bingen. In the Catholic Church it is considered holy and she was a polymath of the Middle Ages. The linked page below presents them and offers his view of the Middle Ages. The site was…

15000

Yesterday, this number fell by the media and I really wanted to write a few lines about it yesterday. 15,000 can be anything. Are there, for example, 15,000 €, so you can be lucky in general. So happy, this figure of yesterday is not, because it’s about 15,000 children daily, says every day, so every…

Harvey Weinstein or: what is power?

The US film producer Harvey Weinstein is currently being accused of massive sexual assault and rape of some. Because rape is a unique crime anyway, I let the time left out and treat only the question of sexual assault. How can it be that most women allow this such attacks, anyway, although it this is…

Epicurus and creation

In the fourth and third century BC in Greece, a philosopher whose ideas have a certain relevance today lived. Epicurus, that was his name, was one of the atomists, so a nuclear teachers who had anticipated theoretically that everything we see, that the whole matter, from the smallest particles must pass the atoms. He introduced…

Does prayer help?

Some believe prayer is yet only a psychological thing, a self-soothing by a kind of mantra that you telepromting again and again. Possibly true part of it, but it sure is not the whole truth. Jesus teaches us to pray the Our Father, the people, and he would not do it if praying would not…

What I’m wondering about

… is why I actually blogging. Every blogger has so essentially duplicating his own ideas why he does that. I think on the one hand it is with me, that I would like to encourage a discourse on certain things, even though the do not have to be reflected in the fact that now necessarily…

In life you can go without a lot

But not without literature and cats. This spell out or maybe even longer hangs near an escalator in a Munich S-Bahn station. Somehow it had unfortunately made it to my long-term memory, because long time I found it somehow something stupid, somehow covered, somehow striking. Even if I like cats in principle, I might as…

Is the death penalty fair?

First, the question bores me basically already, although I have found myself in the headline. They can in fact answer cope with No. On the other hand, do not see all the people that answer to be correct. This article is now addressed to them, although they will probably not be put off by. Why…

The dubious charms of a central station

There are people who like trains. And in fact, you sit in a first in, it is actually not so bad. That which does not necessarily led me, at least for train travel, are actually most likely the stations. Not places where one likes to get out, unless you want to perhaps buy drugs, which…

Vegetative state and a few questions

After a distant acquaintance of several days had a brain hemorrhage, then two emergency surgeries and now continues to be in a vegetative state, one imagines from time to time but certain questions. One was initially answered once before during a brief Internet search, the vegetative state is a medically induced at a certain time…

Colors are dangerous?

Who, for example, opinion, religion or religions are basically dangerous, could also come up with the idea that colors are also dangerous. For just as in religions, there are all sorts of shades in the colors, different and similar, and the whole thing yet in all possible nuances and shades. Even in religions there are…

Does religion corrupt young people?

Excuse me this absurd appearing question, because my mind is not inserted in this issue. But it is the opinion of a Facebook contact, with which I circulated from time to time together again at random and such crude theses. I had replied to this question, among others, as follows: Each person is affected by…

Children nowadays have more self control

The children of today are no longer what they once were? That’s not true. 1968 subjected psychologists several children a test. Either they got a candy immediately, or if they could wait a few minutes, they got two candy. This test was then repeated recently and it did not come out of what had foreseen…

Are nuclear weapons good for world peace?

The dialectical answer is yes! And no! In the latest print edition of TIME Josef Joffe is this question in light of the awarding of the Nobel Peace price slightly.

On the Alp there’s no sin

Even if the scribed in the headline idea is perhaps not necessarily to prove it was yesterday one of the best ideas in the Munich area to go to a pasture at the brilliant weather, a mountain meadow with a farmed hut on it. Whether it therefore was there sin or not, there was at…

Should religion be a school subject?

In a forum that revolves around philosophy and politics, this question has been asked before. In me a little stomach turned, because these kinds of questions I find something flat. I assume that basically almost everyone and probably every person has a religious vein that is inherent in him. If someone disagrees, you could discuss…

Sometimes it needs to be more

There are somehow “not get enough” people. The strive to have the power to be rich to have a big house to have a big car, much to have in regard to other people to be able to influence others, women or men to prevail, although you never can have people and anyway basically nothing…
