What If Bigness is the Problem?
2011 09 29
If he were alive, economist and political scientist Leopold Kohr would probably say "I told you so" about the economic crises that plagued both the United States and Europe.

What if the Moon Didn’t Exist?
2011 09 28

2011 09 28
Most Americans may not know that the government agency responsible for providing national security data to the nation’s senior policymakers, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), operates a special center dedicated to global warming.

Belief in Da Vinci Code and other "wacky, false" Conspiracies (like 9/11) is "coping mechanism"
2011 09 22
"There is something very fundamental about the nature of these kinds of beliefs," Newheiser said. "There is past research showing that conspiracy beliefs don’t really respond to counterevidence very well, because they’re not based on logical arguments to begin with.
