Carbon Dating of Camel Bones Suggests Biblical Inaccuracies

Posted by on February 6, 2014 in Archaeology, Sci-Tech with 0 Comments

New carbon dating that determined the age of the oldest known camel bones has challenged Biblical accuracy. Camels are described in the Old Testament stories of Abraham, Joseph and Jacob as pack animals. The latest findings, published in the journal Tel Aviv, reveal that camels were most likely domesticated around 900 BC – centuries after the biblical stories are believed to have taken place.

Creation vs Evolution Debate Between Bill Nye and Ken Ham Summed Up In Two Very Telling Answers

Posted by on February 6, 2014 in Science with 5 Comments

On Tuesday evening more than 3 million people tuned in to watch ‘Science Guy’ Bill Nye debate Ken Ham, founder of the biblically literalist Creation Museum on the topic ‘Is creation a viable model of origins?’ Mr. Ham believes that the world was created over a six 24-hour-day period about 6,000 years ago, and that all living land animals today are descended from those taken aboard Noah’s Ark some 4,500 years ago. Nye challenged Ham’s literal biblical view on several fronts, pointing out that radioisotopic and ice core data shows that the Earth has been around for far longer than the 6,000 years that Ham says it is, as does our ability to view stars that are more than 6,000 light years away. Nye also pointed out that Noah’s Ark, were it constructed the way the Bible says it was, wouldn’t actually stay afloat.”

Your Brain Edits Memories With New Experiences: Study

Posted by on February 5, 2014 in Sci-Tech, Science with 0 Comments

A new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience suggests memory is faulty and can insert things from the present into memories from the past. In terms of accuracy, your memory is no video camera. Rather, memory rewrites the past with current information, updating your recollections with new experiences to aid survival. Love at first sight, for example, is more likely a trick of your memory than a Hollywood-worthy moment. READ MORE: Your memory is no video camera: It edits the past with present experiences

New Theory Suggests the Universe Emerged From a Long, Cold Deep Freeze

Conventional thinking has it that the universe and all the matter within it exploded out from a single point, the so-called Big Bang Singularity. But a German theoretical physicists says this never happened. Instead, the universe started empty and cold, slowly emerging from a deep freeze.

First Brain Map of Speech Units Could Aid Mind-Reading

Posted by on February 3, 2014 in Sci-Tech, Science with 0 Comments

“He moistened his lips uneasily.” It sounds like a cheap romance novel, but this line is actually lifted from quite a different type of prose: a neuroscience study. Along with other sentences, including “Have you got enough blankets?” and “And what eyes they were”, it was used to build the first map of how the brain processes the building blocks of speech – distinct units of sound known as phonemes. The map reveals that the brain devotes distinct areas to processing different types of phonemes. It might one day help efforts to read off what someone is hearing from a brain scan.

U.S. One Step Closer To Future Where Cars Talk To Each Other

The United States is one step closer to a future where cars will communicate with each other to avoid accidents. The Department of Transportation announced on Monday it was moving forward with the steps necessary to one day mandate vehicle-to-vehicle — V2V — communication technology on light automobiles. The big deal here is that research — including a 3,000-vehicle test of the system in Ann Arbor, Mich. — finds that V2V technology has the potential to “help drivers avoid or mitigate 70 to 80 percent of vehicle crashes involving unimpaired drivers.”

Exposed: Google’s “Smart Home” Surveillance Plans

Two weeks ago, the New York Times’ truth-humor strip on “The Home of the Future” came on the heels of Google’s purchase of ‘smart thermostat’ manufacturer Nest for $3.2 Billion. With power utility commissions such as California already stating their intention to “expand third-party access” to in-home data, the perfect storm is brewing for Google’s mission of making you their product – even in your own home.

How Nuclear Fusion Will Save Mankind

Posted by on January 30, 2014 in Eco-Friendly, Sci-Tech with 2 Comments

Nuclear Fusion and creating energy through cold fusion could potentially liberate the world of many of the energy struggles we currently are caught up in. Big oil and energy companies could learn to profit from nuclear energy through advanced innovation, or it could serve to act as a disruptive technology–the possibilities are explored in this interview clip with Stanford Research Institute director Dr. Michael McKubre and Buzzsaw host Sean Stone.

What’s the Universe Made Of? Math, Says Scientist

What if the universe itself is math? That’s what cosmologist Max Tegmark believes. In Tegmark’s view, everything in the universe — humans included — is part of a mathematical structure. All matter is made up of particles, which have properties such as charge and spin, but these properties are purely mathematical, he says. And space itself has properties such as dimensions, but is still ultimately a mathematical structure.
