Funny that people leave the goodbye posts even in a blog that just said i don't want to hear it. I don't think Phil minds the i disagree posts just the things is off topic and i am taking many ball and going home. Don't announce your leaving phil and the rest of us don't care. If you disagree let's discuss it.

Say brotha, do your thing man, don't let anyone tell anything else. You are your own person and at the same time do have certainties towards delegating truth to the public. Your an awesome writer, even if you publish something to piss someone off, its all good lol. I know this might sound a bit crude but its fun to think that you would share true and positive information and have an individual become upset. Its not your fault but theirs for trusting only what ever source they have searched. Writing should be about making people glad and not everyone is the same. Cool how you have the gift to please more than just one class of people. Stick to your discernment and don't let your fans push ya around lol ;.)

Interesting that you would complain of being accused of stating things you didn't actually write... that has been one of my own most common complaints about people in your comments as well. Well... at least you know how it feels.

Back to kittens: How many kittens would need to be in the same part of space in order to trigger a fusion reaction, Phil? And would the product be cats, dogs, or new elements?

when he calls himself the bad astronomer he's referencing his skeptical book call bad astronomy. If he were only interesting in a blog about astronomy he would have found a name that instilled a little more confidence than "Bad Astronomer"

You may have seen such a post from me, ressembling this, and I want to set things straight: It's sad, in this XXIst century, you have to, ...but you have to. Personally, I fear more a return to the Dark Age of the XIIth century than climate warming. T'would not be the first time in our history and history has the bad habit of repeating itself. Not to say climate warming is not a scary issue though. But as we put more and more of our knowledge on computer bits instead of paper, if it's ever lost or willingly destroyed, the climb back up the mountain will only get harder and longer. Roddenderry should have used the 34th Century instead of the 24th. He could have passed for as good a visionary as Jules Verne instead of a happy and innocent dreamer.

I have only been reading your blog for a couple of months. In the rare event you post one that is uninteresting to me at the time, I just skip it. I think you do a good job and I don't think you should change anything. Thank you for BA!

Just finished watching a great set of lectures on Science & Religion from the Teaching Company. The current Science vs religion conflict is actually quite recent it seems. Really began after WW1. Mainly a product of a "naive literal reading" of religious texts. I was stunned to know that the last papal statement on evolution actually made sense in a scientific context. For those interested in the subject, the lectures are recc. I certainly did not agree with everything in them, but it was eye opening. The professor gave the best definition of a scientific theory I've come across. It's good to know that only a minority of religious faiths are strictly anti science these days, but unfortunately the USA has a majority of them. The Middle East has their set except it's extreme Islam. Just two cents from a guy who blogs in the Bible belt and refuses to make any science subject off limits. Risky for a guy who works on air in TV.
