Science philosopher Michael Ruse says the conflict between creationism and evolution is not a theological debate, but a cultural debate akin to abortion, gay marriage and capital punishment. "Evolution represents one side, rather than the other," he says.
Michael Ruse, philosopher of science, recounts the history of Darwinism by explaining the theories of evolution and natural selection.
Ruse questions whether these theories are as valid today, 200 years after Darwin's birthday.Â
Michael Ruse is a philosopher of science, working on the philosophy of biology, and is well known for his work on the argument between creationism and evolutionary biology. He was born in England, took his undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol (1962), his master's degree at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario (1964), and Ph.D. at the University of Bristol (1970). Ruse taught at the University of Guelph Canada for 35 years. Since his retirement from Guelph, he has taught at Florida State University and is, since 2000, the Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy. In 1986, he was elected as a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Canada and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has received honorary doctorates from the University of Bergen, Norway (1990), the McMaster University, Ontario, Canada (2003) and most recently the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada (2007).
Actual demonstration of the device begins at around 10:35.
Tan Le, co-founder and president of Emotiv Systems, gives a live demo of a mind control device that uses a person's thoughts to input computer commands.
EG is the celebration of the American entertainment industry. Since 1984, Richard Saul Wurman has created extraordinary gatherings about learning and understanding. EG is a rich extension of these ideas - a conference that explores the attitude of understanding in music, film, television, radio, technology, advertising, gaming, interactivity and the web - The Entertainment Gathering
Tan Le is an Australian telecommunications entrepreneur, businesswoman and the 1998 Young Australian of the Year. She is president and co-founder of Emotiv Systems.
Incredible interview from 1994, in which Cheney foretells the disaster that would happen 9 years later with astonishing clarity. How could he be part of something that was so obvious a disaster waiting to happen? And a disaster he obviously was well aware of?
It is very telling how this Â bastard's agenda shifted from 1994. Was he inducted into the higher(est) ranks of the Cabal after this time? Â He was secretly director of the Council on Foreign Relations during those years, so what shifted. Just Haliburton money?? Cheney almost seems sincere in this interview. Not even seemingly the same man that we saw in office.that man was/is corrupted to the core... he was so withered at Barack's inaugeration. New World Order.
The Rosicrucians is an extensively researched historical film based on rare manuscripts found at Rosicrucian headquarters in California and France.

Learn how Rosicrucian ideas about education, democracy, free inquiry, human rights, and expansion of consciousness have exercised vital imprints on today's society. The narrative also includes quotations from important contributors to civilization throughout the centuries - philosophers, scientists, scholars, writers, artist - all of whom have been associated with the Rosicrucians.
A team led by scientists at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering has demonstrated the first working "invisibility cloak." The cloak deflects microwave beams so they flow around a "hidden" object inside with little distortion, making it appear almost as if nothing were there at all.
Go to the limits of human experience...and beyond. From the fringes of the galaxy to our own backyards, the UFO FILES searches for evidence of life beyond our world. Tracing the long, convoluted history of UFO encounters and research, this unique series opens new windows into the controversial field.
If an alien spaceship crash-lands on Earth, the first thing we'll want to do is take it apart and learn how it works. Maybe go for a tour inside and learn what kind of options it has--like an anti-matter reactor, laser weapons, and even a teletransporter. Amazingly, many of these "science fiction" devises are based on real science. And many have human-designed counterparts right here on Earth. Super-powerful laser weapons can be found on our own prototype weapons. We're even researching ways to hide vehicles behind plasma-generated "invisibility cloaks". Cutting-edge animation and live-action recreations help us "imagine" an alien spacecraft and learn how many amazing devices and mechanisms are really possible, and likely to be available in a few years.
A little insight on what gov't contracts are all about...
Illuminati Admiral Dick Cheney corrupting and influence peddling the total government and financial and political elites into a quilt of the real winners and only winers of this debacle of a war. Foreign policy is a joke. So is freedom at home. Who feels free in this country anymore? Blackwater in Iraq, storm troopers at the RNC, and cameras on every corner of every city and soon every town. Welcome to the New World Order.
Black programs have been criticized for violating the Receipts and Expenditures clause of the United States Constitution. Article I, Section 9, clause 7 of the United States Constitution requires the government to publish a "regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money".
Because black programs are not disclosed as part of the United States official budget, critics contend that this violates the United States Constitution. Partially to dissuade critics, the United States Department of Defense sets aside a large portion of their annual budget as "the black budget". This money is said to be divided in undisclosed portions among all black projects so that a record of how much public money is expended in undisclosed ways will still be publicly available.
