November is the month for soulmates, apparently
I’m thinking the only reason to follow the Idealist page on Facebook (notice me not linking to it) is for the wacky junk they’re posting. This is another from the “don’t quote me!” website Earth We Are One. Once again … Continue reading

I found this via Science Dump on Facebook and tsk tsk to them linking to this silly write up instead of the original article from Live Science (a proper link is in there, though). The LS article does not declare that beloved pets … Continue reading
The universe is not trying to tell you anything
The website YouCantBreakMe threw this article under the entertainment section. It’s entertaining, all right, and also eye rolling. If you see repeating numbers (like on a digital clock – 11:11) it means the universe has message for you! Did you … Continue reading

How did I miss word about the new miracle healer?
Pulled a kid right out of a coma with his voice, he did. At least, David Hasselhoff says he did, with a recording of his voice for a young fan: Britain’s Got Talent judge Hoff told BBC Radio Five Live: … Continue reading

It’s healthier to be a skeptic
A pitiful showing for Justin Trottier’s talk on the New Age Movement and what science is up against but some Saskatoon Freethinkers had a few theories on why that was, not the least of which the time of night – … Continue reading

I haven’t picked on Billy Graham in a while
Since Halloween is only a couple weeks away, I’ll focus on this question: My mother died recently, and although I know she’s in heaven, I worry about whether she’s happy, if she still has health problems and things like that. … Continue reading
