IS CO2 CAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING??

Tuesday 31 July 2012 at 10:29 am

Berkeley Earth Project Says Carbon Dioxide is Cause of Global Warming

If one reads the article carefully, one can see that assuming their projection is caused by human activity, or in the parlance called anthropogenic.

You would think after 20 years of assertions, someone would come up with a peer reviewed article supporting the notion that CO2 is caused by human intervention.  VERY MISLEADING ON THE PART OF ENVIRONMENTAL WHACKOS.

HOW TO CALCULATE THE ODDS

Sunday 22 July 2012 at 10:17 am

WHAT DOES 2 TO 1 MEAN:  for openers it is the same as 4 to 2;  note the minimum bet is $2

if you bet $2 and win, you get $4 plus your $2 bet back for a total of $6.

which means your chances of winning are 1 in 3 or 1/3

for example: 

bet 2 and lose, accumulated cost = $2

bet 2 again and lose, accumulated cost = $4

bet 2 a third time and and win, accumulated cost = $0;  one of three chances

SUMMARY:  IF ODDS ARE X TO Y, THEN THE CHANCE OF WINNING IS Y/(X+Y)

SUMMARY:  IF ODDS ARE A TO B, THEN THE CHANCE OF WINNING IS B/(A+B)

Why Does the World Exist?

Sunday 22 July 2012 at 12:17 am

 work in progress This article was inspired by a review of the book: Why Does the World Exist by John Holt, which follows.

The most sensible answer I have heard --  I heard about 70 years ago.  From cathechism: "God made the world. Who made God? God is."

I say this with all due respect, and notwithstanding Hawking and Weinberg and Hitchens and Dawkings and whomever.

God is the Prime Mover.  Of course, this is not an argument to support the notion of heaven, immortality, hell, angels, spirits, soul, etc. That is an entirely another argument, and in my opinion totally within the realm of Faith and Religious belief.

It would seem that Faith is a good thing, if it brings hope and joy and purpose; and feels good.

It would seem that Atheism is a bad thing because it is untenable and brings restlessness.

It would seem that Agnosticism is tenable and an honest answer for those who are searching and do not yet know.

The most impressive argument that I have read for the case of a "Prime Mover" is the argument put forth by St. Anselm in the Proslogium. The Proslogium was directed at believers to support their belief system.

The Higgs Boson, or God particle has been found.  'Tis a high energy particle that provides mass for most other particles. The Higgs boson's existence would have profound importance in particle physics because it would prove the existence of the hypothetical Higgs field—the simplest of several proposed explanations for the origin of the symmetry-breaking mechanism by which elementary particles acquire mass. But we are not any closer to understanding creation. There are as many theories as there are genuises working the field. Most theories are inscrutable so they can be set aside as clever mathematical conjectures.

The genius of Einstein was his simple thought experiment in an elevator.

John Holt's book:  "Why Does the World Exist" doesnt answer the question, but it a way begs the question.

Maybe Liebnitz was correct:  "the world is because it is."

I recall my elementary school cathechism:  God is."

A few years back, I took a course at ILEAD on the Philosophy of God by xxxxxx, an acknowledge athiest, and son of preachers. He was writing a book: "Hope to God." In other words, athiests should have Hope that God exists. Made a lot of sense to me. We studied Saint Anselm's Proslogium. A proof of the existence of a prime mover. The Prologium was intended for "believers" to support their FAITH. XXXX said the Proslogium was compelling, but that some philosophers believed it was flawed. I couldn't comprehend the flaws.

THE LOUIS FREEH REPORT on PENN STATE

Friday 13 July 2012 at 8:27 pm

two of my close fiiends, Tom and Jean,  did not like the Freeh Report on Penn State & Sandusky


I read the report for the third time.  I settled on the words "humane treatment."  That's all I had to read:  Paterno and Penn State are guilty.  


Humane Treatment is the typical academic rallying cry. Worry about the prisoner and not the victim.  Worry about the mother during normal delivery when they crush the skull of the newborn seconds before delivery. and I am prolife. The more humane way, according to Paterno, to treat Sandusky is to get him counseling and keep the story under wraps.

BTW, my friend Tom was our best man, and he won the religion medal in grammar school. He was a successful patent attorney but not as i had hoped a clear thinking libertarian

My friend Jean and I go back to Travelers' data processing.  He was one of those genius planners. When he retired 15 years ago he took up painting as a hobby.  He turned about to be a world class painter and his work is hanging in museums, libraries, cathedrals, etc. 

read the article below or go to the Freeh Report link.  I could not copy the Freeh Report, it is locked for fear that rabid Penn Staters will alter the text, but it is an easy read, all 270 pages, including emails and hand written notes.


Sandusky was a phys ed teacher but was given full professorship status.  he raped moire than 40 boys at least 100s of times.


Yet the culture at Penn State denies this.  the Three School officials will go to jail, for sure

GOD PARTICLE - HIGGS PARTICLE

Wednesday 04 July 2012 at 07:42 am

God particle' discovery beats fireworks for scientists 4 hrs ago related links Scientists uncover 'God particle' The Higgs Boson made simple How the Higgs particle gives things mass It may be the Fourth of July, but science enthusiasts around the world now have another reason to celebrate. As widely expected, those super brainy scientists over at CERN, in Switzerland, announced today that after more than 40 years of searching they had "discovered a particle consistent with" that elusive "God particle" (aka Higgs boson). As we all remember from science class, it's rather complicated, but amazingly, that one little particle could explain how matter attains mass and help explain the workings of our entire universe. The team is calling the results "very preliminary," but it's enough to have the science community breaking out the champagne.

HOW THE HIGGS PARTICLE GIVES MASS

Wednesday 04 July 2012 at 07:37 am

The infamous Higgs particle has a weighty task: It grants all the other elementary particles their mass. Without it, they — we — would zip around frantically at the speed of light, too foot-loose to form atoms. But how does the Higgs do it?
