Atomic Girl and an adventure in particle physics
The quest for the meaning of life has always been futile but science and scientists are familiar with futile and pointless. Now that quest has trnsferred from the realm of metaphysics to sub atomic physics however it is even more futile.

The scientists warn us climate change will cause massive extinctions, species will be destroyed, nations will die, the oceans will swamp huge areas of land as sea levels rise and lots of scaremongering stuff like that.

The Eurozone Financial Crisis Made Simple
Completely predictably the leaders of Eurozone's solvent nations have cobbled together a deal to save the beleaguered Greek economy from defaulting on its debts. Predicable because firstly if Greece had been allowed to default and quietly leave the single currency scheme as it should have been, then Ireland, Portugal and probably Italy, Spain and Belgium would have followed in

No Drama Obama blows a fuse
"I'se de President an' dem whitey all goan do what I say." Barack Hussein Obama stormed before walking out of a meeting with Republican congressional leaders on deficit reduction, telling them "enough was enough". (Well he didn't actually say those words, but close)

Climate Change and the Population Explosion
In all the debates about climate change and the effect of carbon dioxide emissions on the environment there is one issue that has a huge bearing on humanity's relationship with our planet that neither politicians nor scientists will discuss. Population growth. So a philosopher has to step up to the mark and ask why people are encouraged to have children when we face so many population related problems?

Theosophy For Beginners
With orthodox science and mainstream religion having failed to provide the answers to the great questions of life promised by both, people are looking elsewhere.
