Escher for Real The work of M.C. Escher needs no introduction. We have all learned to appreciate the impossibilities that this master of illusion's artwork presents to the layman's eye. Nevertheless, it may come as a surprise for some, but many of the so-called 'impossible' drawings of M. You are also invited to watch our movie: "Escher for Real" and "Impossibly Real". "Escher for Real" "Impossibly Real" Convention In the following sequences, figures are frequently presented in pairs. The Penrose Triangle We start with the Penrose triangle object (also independently invented by Oscar Reutersvard). The Penrose Rectangle The impossible shape conveyed by the Penrose triangle is the most well-known one. The Penrose Pentagon Similarly and following the construction of a Penrose triangle and Penrose rectangle, one can easily create an arbitrary Penrose n-gon. The Penrose Triangle II Here we present another way to simulate and realize geometry that looks like the Penrose triangle from a certain view. All M.C.

Why Can't I Own a Canadian? October 2002 Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. Dear Dr. Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality.

Textbook disclaimer stickers This post is for people tracking the bizarre ethical slide of The Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research, Inc. (CPBR). As you probably know from my earlier posts, CPBR sends out a yearly invitation to plant biotechnology researchers to submit grant proposals.

I’ve asked every member university to delete the PDF when received from CPBR. All of the above could have been avoided if CPBR simply linked to my Designing Conference Posters page. “Yet the politics of shipwreck can be avoided, I think, if we can construct a theory of feminist criticism within the framework of a general theory of the critical process that is neither purely objective nor purely intuitive; in that way, its processes can be examined beside, compared with, and contrasted to other branches of criticism with some degree of dispassionate distance.”

Why Atheism? Just about everyone is an atheist when it comes to other gods — the gods that other people believe in or that nobody believes in anymore. I’m an atheist about all gods because there's no reliable evidence for any god, or even for Jesus. There is also extensive evidence that Jesus and all gods are fictional characters — myths created mainly by primitive people who had little understanding of how our universe operates. Let’s start with a quick experiment. Drop one coin and watch it fall. If you were to the release third coin, what do you think would happen? Our understanding of the world around us, and our abilities to predict what will happen are based on naturalism — the basis of science. To be explicit, modern science relies on methodological naturalism. OK, let’s do another experiment. Galileo and Empirical Science Around 1600, Galileo had a new idea for his culture. “Empirical” is a word that I'll be using a lot. This was no “simple request” by the Church. Why God(s)?
