While I have my doubts and myths, as everyone (was the world created by playing dice?), they are private questions. Politically, I'm an atheist and laic. Yet I think that Pope Francis made a great debut. His positions on homosexuality, abortion, contraception, his openness to atheists, Muslims and Jews are to be praised.
If only the great leaders of this world could use their power to nurture tolerance and peace...
Age and number of followers, by order of appearance:
Hinduism 4000 800 million
Judaism 4000 14 million
Taoism, etc 2600 800 million
Zoroastrism 2600 <1 million
Shintoism 2600 3 millions
Buddhism 2500 400 million
Christianity 2014 2 billion
Islam 1392 1.2 billion
(Sure, Zoroastrism is not a major religion in terms of adherents. But it intrigued me since I saw "2001: a Space Odyssey" and heard Richard Strauss' "Also sprach Zarathustra". I had to know who that was!)
It's interesting to see that all major religions were born in Asia. And how their histories and inspirations and so often closely related.
March 2011 will be remembered for the tsunami in Japan and its nuclear aftermath. Terrible short term impact for the Japanese people (20,000 victims). Very impressive: watch the pace of recovery (found in Japan News). Longer term speculations about nuclear energy sustainability all over the world... what's new on solar energy?
Coincidence: Lost city of Atlantis, swamped by tsunami, may be found! A 2500 year old myth.
"It's with true sadness that we report on the death of Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, the legendary French comic book artist, illustrator and conceptual designer."
Marc Rougier's insight:
Moebius reach was so wide: US comics, Japanese mangas and even movies (Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element). A creator of universes, a rare artist.
Also in March, Putin's come back. Back to the cold war days, Russia was the bad soviet guy. Now it's more complex: Russia embrassed capitalism but embarasses with its positions on Iran, Syria, democracy.
And if your software crashed with no good reason, you might have an excuse: the biggest solar storm in 5 years. Stronger storms expected in 2013!
