Are You Really Conscious Right Now?Huffington Post Canada (blog)While the world celebrates the discovery of the Higgs boson, these scientists are hard at work on one of the most profound mysteries left: Why, and how, did humans become conscious?

The 46% of Americans who today believe that God created humans in their present form is essentially the same as it has been over the past 30 years. Highly religious Americans and Republicans are most likely to hold this view.

If only Lawrence Krauss could tell the difference between a scientific question and a metaphysical one - something he might have learned were he not so convinced of the intellectual bankruptcy of philosophers and theologians.
In the study of the origin of humans, ultimately what is true in the physical world will be perfectly consistent with Scripture, a Southern Baptist seminary professor said in an essay arguing against theistic evolution at BioLogos.org.
"Superearth" is a bit toasty with a sun-facing temperature of 2,000 Kelvin (3,140 degrees Fahrenheit). Affixed in an 18-hour tidally locked orbit, 55 Cancri e is a bit like Earth, although in many ways altogether alien.
The water-world planet is located in a system with at least 5 planets just 41 light years from Earth. The tidal-locking means that its orbit takes the same amount of time that it takes to rotate on its axis -- hence the same "side" of the planet is always facing the Sun. If Earth were tidally locked (which it is not), a particular side (say North and South America) would enjoy 24-hour days, while the opposite side (Asia) would be cloaked in perpetual darkness.
This raises some interesting possibilities for 55 Cancri e. Based on new infrared light data collected from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists have developed new insight into the alien world's climate. Cancri e's sun-facing side is a scorching 2,000 Kelvin (3,140 degrees Fahrenheit), with water existing in a super-critical state where it is found in localized, ever-shifting pockets of liquid and gas, topped with a thick blanket of steam. But the night side is likely cool and liquid.

Physicist Brian Greene explains how properties at the black hole’s surface—its event horizon—suggest the unsettling theory that our world is a mere representation of another universe, a shadow of the realm where real events take place.
