HOT5 Daily 4/1/2009

1. "Eleven Myths and Truths About Atheists"  A good list with a detailed explanation of each point.

Representative Sample: 10: Atheists think science belongs to them; atheists treat science as their religion.

2. "This is why the left scares me …" I can think of some more reasons too.

Representative Sample: the political left sees no problem with throwing government action — nanny-state bans in this case — at a “problem” regardless whether the cure might work, or if it’s even curing an actual problem facing our society.

3. "Report: Chinese Develop Special "Kill Weapon" to Destroy U.S. Aircraft Carriers" Another reason for keeping an eye on China, and for improving tactical missile defense.

Representative Sample: The size of the missile enables it to carry a warhead big enough to inflict significant damage on a large vessel, providing the Chinese the capability of destroying a U.S. supercarrier in one strike.

4. "Europe Warms to Missile Defense as US Cools" Europe doing something useful for a change. Hopefully we'll be able to piggy-back on any advances they make.

Representative Sample: The cornerstone of territorial BMD will be NATO's Active Layered Theater Ballistic Missile Defense (ALTBMD) and notably its Air Command and Control System (ACCS), which is being supplied by Thales Raytheon Systems. ALTBMD is effectively the backbone to link NATO's disparate systems

5. "What is The Big Question for all religions?" An interesting look at theism vs. atheism, agnosticism & deism.

Representative Sample: The only real and meaningful classification in this field from the viewpoint of the organized religions is however "Are you one of us, or are you not".
