The Nobel Prize for Literature will be announced tomorrow. It would be so nice if they gave it to Salman Rushdie.
Good news: Center4Inquiry’s win against shops that display homeopathic “medicines” alongside legitimate ones. As John Diamond said, if it works it ceases to be “alternative” & becomes simply “medicine”. Not only does homeopathy not work. It CANNOT work. bit.ly/3SytkMZ
I don’t often have the patience to listen to podcasts all the way through, but this one is well worth it. Three highly intelligent, sincere and honest men in conversation about a vitally important matter. spoti.fi/3fF42hT
Many congratulations to Svante Paabo: bbc.co.uk/news/health-63…
Little: "CFI's decades of work against pseudoscience like homoeopathy is consumer protection work. We're not going away, and it's time for CVS, Walmart, and all other retailers to stop misrepresenting homeopathy as medicine."
Retweeted by Richard Dawkins
CFI Legal Director Nick Little: "The Court of Appeals rightly recognized that giant retailers can't just deny responsibility for how they present what are fundamentally worthless products. It's a huge victory for consumers and their right not to be misled."
Retweeted by Richard Dawkins
BREAKING NEWS: The D.C. Court of Appeals today REVERSED the dismissal of our suits against Walmart and CVS and ordered both cases be allowed to proceed (you can read the opinion at the link below). dccourts.gov/sites/default/…

We want to see the end of discriminatory, state-funded religious schools. Instead, we want inclusive schools that welcome every child (no ifs or buts), where each child can freely decide what they believe Please donate today & help keep this work going justgiving.com/fundraising/no…

Could a feminist revolution begin the downfall of the despicable Ayatollahs? metro.co.uk/2022/09/27/mah…
Anoymous Tory MP:  Grassroots Tories “go for the ideological purist & not the common sense realist. You can have as many leadership elections as you like. You are only going to end up with the nutter.” So change your daft way of choosing a leader.  bit.ly/3rajnJL
Congratulations, NASA, on amazimng feat of precision navigation. Now we wait to see whether any change in Dimorphos’ orbit has been achieved. And next, can this be scaled up to change the orbit of an object wih 1000 times the mass of Dimorphos? bbc.in/3Cd2691
Sundance and others cancel a talented filmmaker for "Islamophobia" and "white saviorism" whyevolutionistrue.com/2022/09/25/sun… via @Evolutionistrue
Dimorphos is about a tenth the diameter of the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs, which works out at a thousandth of the mass. And its orbit around Didymos slower than an asteroid orbiting the sun. So we’ll need to work on a much larger scale, but you have to start somewhere.

Just read @neiltyson’s latest book, Starry Messenger, the title appropriately a translation of Galileo’s Siderius Nuncius. Every page lit up by an original poetic imagination but bearing the unmistakable stamp of a rational mind, steeped in maths and science.
I haven’t watched my conversation with Jerry Coyne and I’m not going to (can’t bear to listen to my own voice) but here it is anyway. Thanks, Jerry for making it such fun. youtube.com/watch?v=7VD5xQ…
Almost finished my listen to Trollope’s 2 sagas, beautifully (that’s too mild a word) read by Timothy West. Why were Trollope’s people so unquestioningly keen on what they called “sport’ – i.e. killing things & conserving them in order to kill them? @TimothyWestNews
The #CelebratingDissent2022 Cologne conference organised by @CEMB_forum & @freethoughtlb was remarkable. See report on discussions, Protest for #SalmanRushdie, Freethought Awards to @RichardDawkins, @Soheil_Arabi_Marieme, Helie Lucas & more ex-muslim.org.uk/2022/08/cd2022…

Please listen to Max Tegmark. The matter is very serious. twitter.com/FLIxrisk/statu…
Excellent account, by Ex-Muslims of America, of the whole story behind attempts to murder Salman Rushdie youtube.com/watch?v=OP74lr…
Why should fear confer survival value on memes and help them spread through the meme pool? Are there other examples? Shark stories? nyti.ms/3wwf7am
Always a pleasure to talk science. Always a pleasure to talk to Jerry Coyne. us02web.zoom.us/webinar/regist…

Robyn Blumner chooses optimism. So do Steve Pinker, Barack Obama, David Deutsch and (though she doesn’t quote The Rational Optimist) Matt Ridley. I optimistically think she’s right. secularhumanism.org/2022/08/i-choo…

In response to the attack on that admirable gentleman Sir Salman Rushdie, I reproduce an article I wrote in 2012. I’m also reminded of Archbishop George Carey’s infamously cowardly attack on The Satanic Verses as an “outrageous slur on the Prophet”. uddari.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/its…
Computational power links 36 radio telescopes into one super telescope. And supercomputer power puts together this stunning image, looking beyond a million years to a dying supernova. Science is not only humanity’s best hope. It is also thrilling. theguardian.com/australia-news…

I think the underlying rationale of these special lanes is to encourage commuters to share rides, so reducing traffic. There’d be a case, then, for requiring a qualifying passenger to have a driving license – i.e. COULD have come singly in a car but chose to share a ride.
