An Unbeliever's thoughts about the Bible, Quran and the Book of Mormon
Sascha Humphrey's insight:
Bwahahaha, religion is so funny.... Every Jot and Tittle: Genesis Although Genesis is a part of the Torah, it doesn't contain many laws. There are only three that seem to be general commandments. 
But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. Genesis 9:4
It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood. Leviticus 3:17
Ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings. Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. Leviticus 7:26-27

RDFRS: Earliest Invasive Cancer Found in 3,000-Year-Old Skeleton

RDFRS: Earliest Invasive Cancer Found in 3,000-Year-Old Skeleton | Slash's Atheist & Antitheism page | Scoop.it
A 3,000-year-old skeleton from a conquered territory of ancient Egypt is now the earliest known complete example of a person with malignant cancer spreading from an organ, findings that could help reveal insights on the evolution of the disease, researchers say.

Cancer is one of the world'sleading causes of death today, with numbers more than doubling over the past 30 years. However, direct evidence of cancer from ancient human remains is very rare compared with that from other medical conditions. This suggests the disease could mainly be a product of modern factors such as smoking, diet, pollution and greater life expectancies.

To better understand the apparent rising prevalence of cancer over time, scientists want to investigate signs of cancer in ancient humans. Past research had often discovered evidence of tumors in skeletons — but they were benign ones that lacked the ability to invade neighboring tissues.

However, until now, there were just three tentative examples of malignant tumors predating 1000 B.C. — cancers that can metastasize, or spread to distant parts of the body. (Most people who die of cancer nowadays do so when it metastasizes, as tumors are typically more treatable before they spread.)

When Will Solar Get Cheap Enough for Everyone to Use?

When Will Solar Get Cheap Enough for Everyone to Use? | Slash's Atheist & Antitheism page | Scoop.it
It's taken 60 years, but solar energy is tantalizingly close to beating fossil fuels on price.
Sascha Humphrey's insight:

"In Germany, where sensible federal rules have fast-tracked and streamlined the permit process, the costs are considerably lower. It can take as little as eight days to license and install a solar system on a house in Germany. In the United States, depending on your state, the average ranges from 120 to 180 days."


"Is it too ambitious to assume the price of solar continues to fall by 7% per year? On the contrary, if the cost of solar continues at that pace, it will take the U.S. until 2025—13 years!—to match today's cost of solar in Germany. Can anyone honestly claim we'll remain so far behind for so long?"
