“This should be allowed to be said” ?

The phrase from the title, but with an exclamation point at the end, one often finds in right-wing populists. Any perceived or real taboos are initiated with this phrase. “It will surely not be able to say that refugees … The fact that foreigners … That dissidents …”. And so on. It is the well-rehearsed…

Findings of science

Since the exploration of the world started on a scientific basis, humanity has acquired more and more useful knowledge. What was still believed in ancient times that because there are tiny particles, is now proved, although these atoms still consist of several small sub-Divided, as we know today. All of these minute particles are finally…

What happens after death?

This issue will be addressed again in reliance on two philosophical schools of antiquity here, which originated in the fourth and third centuries BC. Meaning the Stoics, founded by Zenon and Kepos, founded by Epicurus. Epikur is considered one of Atomists, the first so as theoretically postulated that all matter must ultimately be composed of…

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…

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…

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…

Science and God

Translated automatically from German to English by google translator The following article addresses thoughts on scientific methods and understanding of reality. A fisherman has a net with a mesh width of 5 cm. As he has therefore never caught a fish that is less than 5cm, he gets the idea that there could be no…

US Professor turn from Atheism to find more answers in Christianity

“Smart people don’t become Christians,” she thought, according to Biola University. Her worldview, however, began to change at age 31.

What students really think about God

We want to find exactly out what kind of beliefs students bring to science lessons, and how teachers can deal with them. Alom Shaha recently raised the issue of how science teachers should respond to being asked questions about God that arise in science lessons. Shaha draws attention to an increasingly sensitive issue for teachers…

God and Atoms

In ‘How to Know God’, Deepak Chopra claims that “(t)he same brain responses that enable you to see a tree as a tree, instead of as a ghostly swarm of buzzing atoms, also enable you to experience God” (Chopra 2000:17). – As I have suggested in previous postings, there are undoubtedly mechanisms within the neural labyrinths…

Intelligent Evolution ?

Can we believe in a Creator and evolution? Arguing for God being the Creator of the universe doesn’t necessitate an attack on the theory of evolution. Don’t misunderstand me; some evolutionists (particularly some of the neo-atheists like Richard Dawkins, who argues in his new book people who don’t believe in evolution are on the same…

Religion is Ridiculous ?

“Ridiculous, and worse. So say the new atheist books: In God is Not Great, Christopher Hitchens does not mince words, calling religion “violent, irrational, intolerant, allied to racism and tribalism and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry, contemptuous of women and coercive toward children.” Now Bill Maher’s movie Religulous lampoons the plausibility…

A Teacher on the Front Line as Faith and Science Clash

“ORANGE PARK, Fla. — David Campbell switched on the overhead projector and wrote “Evolution” in the rectangle of light on the screen. He scanned the faces of the sophomores in his Biology I class. Many of them, he knew from years of teaching high school in this Jacksonville suburb, had been raised to take the…

The biggest experiment ever – what we will find inside the atom

“The telescope that Galileo built in the late 1500s had the magnifying power of a pair of inexpensive binoculars available in any Wal-Mart, but it was enough to open up a new world. With this simple instrument, Galileo could see that Jupiter has four moons and that the sun has spots, which led him to…
