Pine Island Glacier
(photo shown above)

In mid-October 2011, NASA scientists working in Antarctica discovered a massive crack across the Pine Island Glacier, a major ice stream that drains the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Extending for 19 miles (30 kilometers), the crack was 260 feet (80 meters) wide and 195 feet (60 meters) deep. Eventually, the crack will extend all the way across the glacier, and calve a giant iceberg that will cover about 350 square miles (900 square kilometers). This image from the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument on NAS’s Terra spacecraft was acquired Nov. 13, 2011, and covers an area of 27 by 32 miles (44 by 52 kilometers), and is located near 74.9 degrees south latitude, 101.1 degrees west longitude.

Hyper-Religiousity or Mental Illness?

Posted by: Shirley Galdino
From: http://anadder.com/

The news are full of cases where very religious people do extremely ridiculous or cruel things. For example, there’s Javon Thompson, a 1 year old starved to death by his cult member family because he did not say “amen” during mealtime. Or more recently, a 7 year old girl who was killed during an exorcism by her priest and congregation members. If you want something less harmful to others, look no further than the man who spent his life savings on those Harold Camping apocalypse ads.

A response I’ve seen a few times is that it’s wrong to “blame” religion for these incidents. The reason given is that the people who perpetrate this “obviously” just have a mental illness and that’s all there is to it. It would be as disingenuous as to blame critics of Rupert Sheldrake (a biologist who’s a major proponent of telepathy and other “challenges to the orthodoxy”) for the man who stabbed him . A certain percentage of the population just have Issues. No movement or social group will be without such people as members. Should every movement be blamed for its kooks?

It’s clear that in some cases of hyperreligiosity combined with mental illness, it’s mental illness that’s the overwhelming force. Cases of mothers who kill all their children because they want them to “be with God” are the most blatant examples. But I think to divorce these acts from religion entirely (and say that the exorcist priest was “just crazy”) is to miss the point.

Firstly, I don’t think it’s obvious that all of these people have a mental illness. We have a strong interest in seeing them as Read more…

Carl Sagan Day

Editor: Shirley Galdino


We live in marvelous times, where the understanding of key issues that afflict the human being from its origins began to be glimpsed through the thin beam of light that a small flashlight-science casts upon the darkness of our ignorance.

The “Morality” Molecule

From: Philosophershaze.com
Editor: Shirley Galdino

Recently, FTP has published a Paul Zak’s video in which he says we need 8 hugs a day for a happier world.

Well, let’s understand Oxytocin:

A couple of days ago I was fortunate enough to come across a video on TED.com titled Trust,morality — and oxytocin, given by Paul Zak. Zak begins his talk by explaining that he is obsessed with morality and understanding why people act morally: when he began this research he wasn’t just interested in knowing that ‘the brain makes us moral’ – he wanted to know if there was a morality molecule. Now, after ten years of research, Zak wants to tell us that he has good reasons for asserting that there is a morality molecule, and that it is called oxytocin.

What is oxytocin? Read more…

TWO Applauds Daniel Avila’s Resignation From U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Avila’s Demonizing Did Not Create Healthy Dialogue, Says TWO

BURLINGTON, Vt. - Truth Wins Out applauded the resignation of Dan Avila today from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, where he served as policy advisor for Marriage and Family. Avila resigned after receiving much criticism for a column he wrote for The Boston Pilot that suggested Satan might cause people to become gay.

“Daniel Avila’s column was hurtful and deeply offensive so we are grateful he quickly resigned,” said Wayne Besen, executive director for Truth Wins Out. “Demonizing never creates a healthy dialogue and Avila represented a major obstacle to the church’s claim to respect all people.” Read more…
