Re: Japanese train
I have read about people there with the job of "packing" the trains. I think it is real.

A test for your religiosity
http://www.ebonmusings.org/atheism/guestessays/religion101.html

Some examples:

What is the number of children born without arms or legs that have been miraculously restored by a visit to the shrine at Lourdes, France?

1. Too many to count
2. Over 1,000
3. Several dozen
4. Zero, but only because their faith was not strong enough

1) Which of the following is the most compelling evidence for the existence of an intelligent and loving Designer?

1. A Caribbean sunset
2. The screams of a baby seal as it is torn apart by a shark
3. The first time your perfect new baby smiles at you
4. The speed of the Ebola virus converting an African child's organs into liquid

We know that Christianity is true because the Gospel writers, inspired by God who can make no error, recorded the founding events. For example, on the first Easter morning, the visitors to the tomb were greeted by which of the following:

1. A young man (Mark 16:5)
2. No, no, it was no man, it was an angel (Matthew 28:2-5)
3. You're both wrong, it was two men (Luke 24:4)
4. Damn it, there was nobody there (John 20:1-2)

There are lots more :)

love it!
Thanks Litho, my daughter will particularly like it.

BTW, I love what she told me last night. She's reading one of Brian Greene's books on QM and string theory.

"If there is a God he must be on 'shrooms." :)

Re: FSTDT
I'm told that www.fstdt.net is where updates are happening. Apparently the .com site is frozen now. I haven't checked this though.

Re: Neil deGrasse Tyson is hilarious
His material is funny and pointed. I don't think his delivery is good at all.

Re: Tyson at his funniest IMO
Ok, on this one I agree with you. Excellent material and delivery.

Just don't ask me to describe why I distinguish between the two.
