Our friends at the Skeptics Society gave us permission to reprint this. Below is the text. Learn it. Share it. Original Text: 1 If Humans Came From Apes, Why Aren’t Apes Evolving Into Humans? Humans, apes, and monkeys are only distant evolutionary “cousins.” 2 There Are Too Many Gaps in the Fossil Record for Evolution to Be True In fact, there are lots of intermediate fossils. 3 If Evolution Happened Gradually Over Millions of Years Why Doesn’t the Fossil Record Show Gradual Change? Sudden changes in the fossil record are not missing evidence of gradualism; they are extant evidence of punctuation. 4 No One Has Ever Seen Evolution Happen Evolution is a historical science confirmed by the fact that so many independent lines of evidence converge to this single conclusion. 5 Science Claims That Evolution Happens by Random Chance Natural selection is not “random” nor does it operate by “chance.”

Sodium fluoride is used to make Sarin gas as well as clean teeth. An article by anti-fluoridation campaigner Walter Graham provoked a strong response with one reader pointing out that one of toothpaste’s constituent parts is used to make sarin gas.

Sodium fluoride is used to make Sarin gas as well as clean teeth

Here are two letters, which have been slightly abridged due to space constraints. Stephen McMurray, Newtownabbey writes: I recently came across an article in your paper regarding fluoride. It is worth noting that despite the Government saying it is safe, only a few months ago, the Government was accusing the Syrian regime of using chemical weapons of mass destruction and the so-called proof was alleged documents which showed British companies had sold sodium fluoride to Syria. It’s a sad reflection of the media’s warmongering hypocrisy that when a foreign country that the Western powers want to invade use Sodium fluoride it is a chemical weapon and yet, when Western governments use it, it is called medication to improve oral health.

The Selling of ADHD: Diagnoses, Prescriptions Soar After 20-Year Marketing Effort by Big Pharma

Copy may not be in its final form. AMY GOODMAN: Taken at face value, the latest figures on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, ADHD, suggest a growing epidemic in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 15 percent of high school children are diagnosed with ADHD. The number of those on stimulant medication is at 3.5 million, up from 600,000 two decades ago. ADHD is now the second most common long-term diagnosis in children, narrowly trailing asthma. But a new report in The New York Times questions whether these staggering figures reflect a medical reality or an over-medicated craze that has earned billions in profits for the pharmaceutical companies involved. The marketing effort has relied on studies and testimonials from a select group of doctors who have received massive speaking fees and funding grants from major pharmaceutical companies.

Well, to discuss this issue, we’re joined by four guests. Dr. Conversations on the Intersection Between Faith and Science. The award-winning public radio program On Being, with Krista Tippett, has provided us with in-depth audio interviews on the intersection between faith and science with a range of guests including theoretical physicists and Vatican Observatory astronomers.

Conversations on the Intersection Between Faith and Science

Listen below and use the comments section to add your voice to the conversation. Freeman Dyson and Paul Davies on Einstein’s God Albert Einstein’s quip that “God does not play dice with the universe,” was about quantum physics, not a statement of faith. But he did ponder the relationship between science and religion and his sense of “the order deeply hidden behind everything.”

Freeman Dyson and Paul Davies, both theoretical physicists, join Krista Tippett to explore Einstein’s wisdom on mystery, eternity and the mind of God. Janna Levin on Mathematics, Purpose and Truth As a theoretical physicist, Janna Levin probes whether the universe is finite or infinite. WorldWideScience.
