That's a Fact, Jack Moral Truth vs. Opinion

http://images.clipartpanda.com/opinion-clipart-la_factoropinion.gifJustin McBrayer, an associate professor of ethics at Fort Lewis College, says he couldn’t figure out why the high school graduates showing up in his classroom had no concept of moral truth. The overwhelming majority of freshmen, he says, “view[ed] moral claims as mere opinions that are not true,” or are true only in a relative sense. McBrayer was puzzled about this until he visited a school open house with his second-grade son. It was there that he encountered a pair of signs hanging prominently in the classroom. The first read, “Fact: Something that is true about a subject and can be tested or proven.” The next one said, “Opinion: What someone thinks, feels, or believes.”

Taxpayers paying $39 billion a year for … nothing

http://comps.canstockphoto.com/can-stock-photo_csp6277430.jpg“American taxpayers spent an average of $39 billion a year over the past five years financing grants, subsidizing tax credits, guaranteeing loans, bailing out failed solar energy boondoggles and otherwise underwriting every idea under the sun to make solar energy cheaper and more popular,” the report states.  “But none of it has worked. Solar energy remains prohibitively expensive – often three times more than electricity produced from natural gas and other sources. As a result, less than 1 percent of the electricity consumers by Americans comes from solar energy sources.”  TPA President David Williams said the green energy industry is relying on taxpayer subsidies to survive. Those companies, he said, should be treated like other companies, allowed to succeed or fail on their own merits.

Owners of Samsung ‘Smart’ TVs Should Be Aware of This ‘Very Scary’ Privacy Policy

http://i.ocs.s2emg.com/thumbs/ensopado/2852/360x360_321530_1.jpgSamsung’s latest line of “smart” TVs have the ability to connect directly to the Internet and are even equipped with a voice recognition system that allows users to give commands.  But the TVs can also record and transmit the data — even if sensitive — to a “third party,” according to Samsung’s own privacy policy. “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition,” the statement reads. “Samsung is not responsible for these providers’ privacy or security practices.”

Google Announces New Calendar Feature…but It Will Require You to Let Them Read Your Emails

http://www.clker.com/cliparts/j/g/r/w/Y/h/google-logo-md.png“Every time you book a flight, buy concert tickets or make a hotel reservation, odds are you get an email with dates, times and other important details. But who has the time (or patience) to copy and paste all this into their calendar? In the new Calendar app these kinds of emails become events automatically, complete with things like flight numbers and check-in times,” Google wrote in an official blog post.

Obama Admin Allows Selling U.S. Citizenship to Babies Conceived Via IVF

http://www.clker.com/cliparts/X/1/W/B/2/6/human-embryo-md.pngHere’s how the scheme works: Imagine a Chinese couple create embryos using IVF in Beijing. The embryos are shipped to the USA and implanted in an American woman’s uterus. She gives birth and the babies are taken back to China by the biological parents. Should the kid be a US citizen? The Obama Administration has just promulgated regulations saying yes!From the USCIS summary:   Under this new policy, a mother who meets this definition but does not have a genetic relationship with her child (for example, she became pregnant through an egg donor)…

Poodle security bug discovered

http://www.clker.com/cliparts/i/L/I/S/T/m/locked-document-icon-md.pngIt was the third time this year that researchers have uncovered a vulnerability in widely used web technology, following April’s “Heartbleed” bug in OpenSSL and last month’s “Shellshock” bug in a piece of Unix software known as Bash. Security experts said that hackers could steal browser “cookies” in “Poodle” attacks, potentially taking control of email, banking and social networking accounts. Even so, experts said the threat was not as serious as the two prior bugs.

Ebola victims without symptoms can still be contagious

http://www.clker.com/cliparts/D/P/F/M/6/v/doctor-wearing-sanitary-mask-md.pngIn a virology blog published Feb. 12, 2009, that acute viral infections such as Ebola hemorrhagic fever may cause little or no clinical symptoms in a so-called “inapparent infection” yet may be contagious. Balog explained to WND much of the fundamental research on Ebola, including the conditions under which asymptomatic carriers of the disease can infect others, has yet to be conducted and reported in peer-reviewed medical journals. Health officials in Dallas did not put up a fence around Duncan’s apartment complex; and it took several days before Dallas health authorities found anyone qualified to clean up the vomit outside Duncan’s apartment. And then the workers just washed the vomit down into the town storm drains.”

Allosaurus: A Creationist’s Best Friend

http://www.clker.com/cliparts/A/F/F/E/j/b/iguanodon-md.pngThe full-grown Allosaurus now on exhibit at the Creation Museum was another phenomenal find. A creationist, Dana Forbes, discovered this fossil in 2000 on his land near Massadonna, in the far northwest corner of Colorado. Over the next two years teams of excavators recovered 139 bones out of a possible 250, making this specimen about 56% complete. It was average in size, at least for an Allosaurus—30 feet (over 9 m) long and 10 feet (3 m) tall. When alive, it would have weighed over 2 tons (1.8 m. tons).  Most exciting about the find was the size and completeness of the skull, including 53 curved, saw-edged, saber-like teeth still embedded in the jaw. The teeth averaged 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) long, including the roots. This skull was 97% complete, making it probably the largest and most complete ever found.

Evolution: The Anti-science

http://www.clker.com/cliparts/2/4/1/f/1194985357657211965evolution_steps_marcelo__01.svg.med.pngScience presupposes that the universe is logical and orderly and that it obeys mathematical laws that are consistent over time and space. Even though conditions in different regions of space and eras of time are quite diverse, there is nonetheless an underlying uniformity. Because there is such regularity in the universe, there are many instances where scientists are able to make successful predictions about the future. For example, astronomers can successfully compute the positions of the planets, moons, and asteroids far into the future. Without uniformity in nature, such predictions would be impossible, and science could not exist. The problem for evolutionism is that such regularity only makes sense in a biblical creation worldview.
