    If You Really Believed God Determined Morality, You'd Become An Atheist

    Many of you may not know that my original goal was to be a Christian apologist, in the mold of CS Lewis. That dream got me through a BA, an MA, and half of a PhD program in the humanities before I finally determined that God didn’t exist. The biggest misconception others have had regarding my rejection of God has been that I left Christianity because I didn’t examine it closely enough, or because I gave up on it too soon. The opposite is true. I left Christianity through my belief in God, no...

    Norwegian media competitors join forces in war against fake news

    One of the sucky legacies of 2016 is the surge of fake news. Donald Trump rode a wave of misinformation to the White House and British voters shot themselves in the foot after listening to the false promises of Brexit. Norway is one of the countries that isn’t especially keen on following the fuckups of the US and UK by letting lies slide. That’s why Norway’s three biggest competing media outlets announced a joint project to combat fake news.

    Why Facebook Keeps Beating Every Rival: It’s the Network, of Course

    The tech world just witnessed a robbery. The heist was so brazen you kind of had to admire it, even if it was pulled off with all the grace of a gas station stickup. Facebook barged into Snapchat’s happy Venice Beach, Calif., mansion, took a solid inventory of the goods, then lifted the crown jewels. First a version of Stories, the fun slide-show format that Snapchat created, appeared last year on Instagram, owned by Facebook. Then Snapchat’s features made their way to WhatsApp and Messenger...

    Metal as fuel? These Canadian scientists are working to make it happen

    Imagine one day fuelling your car with iron powder, rather than gasoline. That's the goal of some Canadian scientists who hope that metal will one day provide a cleaner, greener alternative for our vehicles. Researchers at McGill University have been studying the combustion capabilities of metal for more than a decade. Last week, they launched an experiment into space to gain further insight to this yet untapped potential. The experiment was designed to help scientists better understand how...

    From double decker bus to RV in 20 steps

    How I bought a double decker bus and converted it in five years time into an RV. See how I did all that in 20 steps. This video is a bit out of line with what the rest of my videos in this channel will be, but for me it all started with this bus conversion.

    United passenger threatened with handcuffs to make room for 'higher-priority' traveler

    It’s hard to find examples of worse decision-making and customer treatment than United Airlines having a passenger dragged from an overbooked plane. But United’s shabby treatment of Geoff Fearns, including a threat to place him in handcuffs, comes close. Fearns, 59, is president of TriPacific Capital Advisors, an Irvine investment firm that handles more than half a billion dollars in real estate holdings on behalf of public pension funds. He had to fly to Hawaii last week for a business conf...

    Russia and Iran warn US they will 'respond with force' if red lines crossed in Syria again

    Russia and Iran have warned the US they will “respond with force” if their own “red lines” are crossed in Syria. Following Friday’s cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase, in retaliation for the chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun earlier in the week, the alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made a joint statement threatening action in response to “any breach of red lines from whoever it is”.

    American-led coalition killed more civilians than Russia in March, figures show

    More civilians caught up in the Syrian conflict were killed by US-led coalitions than by Isis or Russian-led forces in the last month, according to figures released by a human rights organisation.

    Gears of War 4 will be released in Japan in uncensored version

    Despite Gears of War 4 was launched last October in the West, the game of The Coalition has not yet been released in Japan, because of some problems with the system of rating of the contents in the land of the rising sun. For some people it will be hard to believe, but Gears of War 4 was never published in Japan probably due to violent content, in excess reputed by the Japanese rating, and even the previous chapters of the saga had been made available only after heavy censorship cuts.

    Yellow car owners join rally in support of 'ugly' car

    Yellow car owners have rallied in support of a vehicle blamed for ruining tourists' photographs in a picturesque Cotswold village. A convoy of 100 cars has driven through Bibury in an act of solidarity towards Vauxhall Corsa owner Peter Maddox, 84. Mr Maddox has come under fire for parking his car outside his cottage in Arlington Row. Tourists have complained that it "ruins" the view and, earlier this year, the vehicle was vandalised.

    Automation is set to hit workers in developing countries hard

    The Fourth Industrial Revolution could bring mass global unemployment. On Friday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he’s “not worried at all” about artificial intelligence replacing human workers because it's “50-100 more years” off. In reality, data shows this is already happening — with an estimated 38 percent of existing U.S. jobs at risk of being turned over to machines by 2030, according research from PwC. Another study put out by the University of Oxford last year had...

    President Trump has successfully created an alternate reality

    A poll shows 3 in 4 Republicans think Trump's offices were surveilled during the 2016 election. Americans live in two realities when it comes to the Russia investigation. On one side is the intelligence community, and on the other is a Republican Party that very much believes President Trump's alternative facts. Including, apparently, that Trump's offices were wiretapped during the 2016 presidential campaign.
