Giordano Bruno ( Italian pronunciation: [dʒorˈdano ˈbruno] ; 1548 – February 17, 1600), (Latin: Iordanus Brunus Nolanus ) born Filippo Bruno , was an Italian Dominican friar , philosopher , mathematician and astronomer . His cosmological theories went beyond the Copernican model in proposing that the Sun was essentially a star , and moreover, that the universe contained an infinite number of inhabited worlds populated by other intelligent beings. [ 2 ] After the Roman Inquisition found him guilty of heresy , he was burned at the stake . [ 3 ] After his death he gained considerable fame, particularly among 19th- and early 20th-century commentators who, focusing on his astronomical beliefs, regarded him as a martyr for free thought and modern scientific ideas.
Blessed John (Johannes, Ioannes) Duns Scotus , O.F.M. (c. 1266 – 8 November 1308) is generally reckoned to be one of the three most important philosopher-theologians of the High Middle Ages . [ 1 ] Scotus has had considerable influence on both Catholic and secular thought. The doctrines for which he is best known are the " univocity of being," that existence is the most abstract concept we have, applicable to everything that exists; the formal distinction , a way of distinguishing between different aspects of the same thing; and the idea of haecceity , the property supposed to be in each individual thing that makes it an individual. Scotus also developed a complex argument for the existence of God , and argued for the Immaculate conception of Mary . He was given the medieval accolade Doctor Subtilis ( Subtle Doctor ) for his penetrating and subtle manner of thought. [ edit ] Life

Think tanks are usually thought of as places devoted to devising and promoting policy recommendations (short and long term) to governments and multilateral organizations. And many think tanks work in the foreign policy field. Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) can play this role as well, but they can also play roles as service providers, activists and educators.
Large exchanges of fancy ideas
organized for my specific desires
Derek Victor Ager (1923-1993 ) was a British palaeontologist, former President of the British Geological Association, and Emeritus Professor of Geology, University College of Swansea, Wales, and critic of Immanuel Velikovsky . On Velikovsky Writing in Catastrophist Geology , Ager writes: "Since (your proposed journal) seems to be so much in line with my own ideas - as expressed in my book "The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record", Macmillan's 1973 - I am naturally very interested in the project. Whilst remaining, I hope, broad-minded I must express strong doubts about the desirability of including discussions of some aspects of the "Lunatic fringe". Thus my book brought me much literature from the Velikovsky band, but when I asked for concrete geological evidence there was immediate and complete silence.
