If we pay absolutely no attention to what is called hereditary hygiene, we could find ourselves facing a ...

Is Solar Power The Immediate Answer To Our Energy Woes ?

We are looking for an across-the-board solution for our present exorbitant consumption of gasoline and it seems as though there is none, at least for the present.

Ethanol becomes a temporary fix...at best. The reason, of course is the need for the corn base sugars(and other similar sugar and starch crops) to produce it. It is a simple ...

Big Bang Booming – Back To The Future

Theoretical cosmologists spend much of their time perfecting what is now known as the 'Big Bang' theory. This concept originates from ideas percolating in the minds of scientists, theologians and astronomers down through the ages.

SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) and the Aliens Conundrum – Part I

I. The Six Arguments against SETI The various projects that comprise the 45-years old Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) raise two important issues: (1) do Aliens exist and (2) can we communicate with them. If they do and we can, how come we never encountered an extraterrestrial, let alone spoken to or corresponded with one? There are six basic explanations to this apparent conundrum and they are not mutually exclusive: (1) That Aliens do not exist; (2) That the technology they use is far too advanced to be ...

What Is Iridology?

In 1950, a chiropractor from America named Bernard Jensen began teaching students about the necessity of using natural foods to detoxify the body.

The Energy Waste Dilemma

Date: 04-23-06 With the price of gasoline on the upswing(again, April 20, 06), there seems to be little sign that we Americans are at least trying to conserve fuel, though there are pockets of concerned groups that are making their voice heard, mainly against Oil Company price gouging.

Granted, along with trucks, etc., these are the prime fossil fuel guzzlers, but they are by no means the only culprit ...
