human robot The player provides you with lots of helpful features;it remembers which video you watched and where you were in the video, it streams the videos from vimeo and the buttons to the left change the narrator's voice. You can choose from the following two options:HUMAN - three voices with different accents.ROBOT - text readerSome may prefer the robot voice since it sounds a bit like AI, and it may give you the impression of a distant voice, analyzing the human species from distance;or some may prefer the warm, calm and sentimental voices of the human narrators with different accents which provide some diversity for such a long documentary.The language button for the website (left menu) will change the subtitle of the documentary as well if it exists, for example: if the documentary has been translated to Romanian and you choose Romanian for the website language the Romanian subtitle will be to added to the player as well.

So, the bad news is that it is looking increasingly likely that the world will experience a very strong El Nino event this 2014-2015 winter (winter in the N. hemisphere, summer down under).

Coffee Shop Atheist | A blog about atheism, best served with friends over coffee Mark Driscoll, the perennial bigoted fundamentalist snake in the dirt that he is, has either himself, or by proxy, put up a brief response to the Boston bombing. This is the sort of insidious ignorance created by a death cult. “Make no mistake, we are at war: an insane rebellion against our Creator God is the root cause of this murderous action.” Religion has motivated countless murders and slaughters of innocents.

Spirituality and “skeptuality” « Measure of Doubt February 29, 2012 by Julia Galef Is “rational” spirituality a contradiction in terms? In the latest episode of the Rationally Speaking podcast, Massimo and I try to pin down what people mean when they call themselves “spiritual,” what inspires spiritual experiences and attitudes, and whether spirituality can be compatible with a naturalist view of the world. Are there benefits that skeptics and other secular people could possibly get from incorporating some variants on traditional spiritual practices — like prayer, ritual, song, communal worship, and so on — into their own lives? We xamine a variety of attempts to do so, and ask: how well have such attempts worked, and do they come with any potential pitfalls for our rationality? http://www.rationallyspeakingpodcast.org/show/rs55-spirituality.html
