Some interesting links elsewhere (May 2015)


saigaReady for my list of links from May? Notice that the best thing I could do for my faith to not go in a crisis was to ignore certain things happening in the American fundamentalist/Evangelical church and mutations of it as much as possible. So I won’t comment on them at all…

The picture this month is a Saiga antelope, one of the weirdest mammals on the planet,. Really weird and bad things are happening with them too: 85,000 Endangered Antelopes Die Mysteriously In Just One Day

Orthodox  blogger Father Stephen Freeman on the ontology of hell : is hell real?

An app to find songs that use the same chords.  The weird thing is that it seems that my own song ‘Father I am tired’ which doesn’t have weird chords at all (for me) has no matching songs.

If you ever want to know how raising sea-levels would affect the place were you live, use this site.

More bad news: saving coffee from extinction.

Some pictures of a rare and mythical animal: the white raven.

Some thoughts on the idea that Satan was the first worship leader. Some people treat it like a well-known biblical truth in certain charismatic circles, others have never heard of it.

If the moon were one pixel. Scroll along to get an idea how enormously big space is…

Sam Harris and Naom Chomsky demonstrate that communication is not easy. It’s on Harris’ blog but I find it a bit shameful from his side. I also (as a European) would say that from reading this Harris -‘new atheist or not’- to me looks just like another war-hungy American rightwing nut.
So this might be a good proof that religion has not much to do with why American ‘conservatives’ are so war-hungry…

That’s it for now kiddo’s.

See you all next month…

peace

Bram
