Are paradoxes misunderstanding? by timeremaining on February 21st, 2010, 7:56 pm
I think I understand the endless midpoint dilemma of Zeno.
Some sums of infinitesmals finish with a small finite solution.
Even though there are an infinity of midpoints between one runner and
the one in front of him it is still possible for the lead runner to be
passed because the infinity of half way lengths add up to a finite
runner separation. This separation is eliminated by the chase runner
who crosses an infinity of separation midpoints.
Perhaps the same slicing of runner gaps can be applied to food.
If I have one pizza and divide it into an endless number of
slices I don't suddenly have more food than I can finish.

Letter 9 by The Joshua Letters on January 19th, 2012, 9:57 am
In the last letter, I stated that I would analyze the major theories of Science against my Matrix Theory. These theories are The Theory of Evolution, The Big Bang Theory, and the Theories of Quantum Mechanics. We have covered the Theory of Evolution and so let’s move on to the other theories.

The Big Bang Theory is based upon the concept that the Universe, which consists of at least 100 billion galaxies that are spread out over at least 27 billion light years, was at one time condensed into a single point in space. This theory is tied directly to Einstein’s discovery that mass and energy are actually the same thing in different forms and that energy can be converted to mass and vise versa. Thus, this theory postulate’s that all of the Universe’s energy was at one time concentrated at a single point in space but then expanded very rapidly (like an explosion - earning it the name “Big Bang”) and it thereafter began converting into mass and eventually, various forms of matter as it sprea...

Quote by Bill Maher - Religulous by NORMLme on March 29th, 2012, 11:52 am
"The irony of religion is that because of its power to divert man to destructive courses, the world could actually come to an end. The plain fact is, religion must die for mankind to live. The hour is getting very late to be able to indulge in having in key decisions made by religious people. By irrationalists, by those who would steer the ship of state not by a compass, but by the equivalent of reading the entrails of a chicken. George Bush prayed a lot about Iraq, but he didn't learn a lot about it. Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It's nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith, and enable and elevate it are intellectual slaveholders, keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified so much lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing, Lord!...

Emotional Intelligence: Science and Myth by wolfhnd on May 17th, 2009, 1:56 am
Emotional Intelligence: Science and Myth
by Gerald Matthews, Moshe Zeidner, and Richard D. Roberts; Cambridge, Massachusetts, MIT Press, 2002, 736 pages,

So what do the authors conclude from their exhaustive efforts? Is emotional intelligence something new? Is it distinct from existing measures of individual difference? Or is it old wine in new bottles? They conclude with a cautious pessimism about the utility of emotional intelligence. They find serious psychometric limitations with all published measures of emotional intelligence. They are not optimistic about the prospects for developing a coherent, empirically supported theory of emotional intelligence. They suggest that the applied benefits of the construct are limited, especially in the clinical arena, "where the principle of taking emotions seriously is already ingrained." Although they believe that the popularity of emotional intelligence seems to be based more on myth than on science, they urge readers not...
