"Tivo-ifies the web" Paul Kedrosky

The Big Bang

Aired on Sept 4th on BBC to celebrate this weeks trial run of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, a history of the Big Bang, a story far more wonderful and imaginative than Biblical creation.

(For those of you that have noticed that I keep bashing religion at the moment – I’ve had enough, I’ve cracked. I am normally relatively nonpartisan about politics because I don’t like or trust any politicians from McCain to Obama, but I can normally see people’s points of view from both sides of the fence. However, I really, really am depressed about a certain intellectually incurious, beehive hairdoed, 50s throwback, living adjacent to Siberia without a Passport. Someone probably quite nice as a person and harmless, if her opinions aren’t inflicted on everyone. Someone who thinks that fairy stories should be taught as an alternative to science and that rape victims should be forced to have babies without a welfare state to support them. Palin is living proof that consent can be manufactured, and in 15 minutes, as junk food rather than a healthy product.)

    Nice pick Dave but so much 101 that I think most people already know a lot of this stuff, I was a bit surprised it was so dull, started off so well…
    BTW, I’m sure you’ve seen this but this was quite fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j50ZssEojtM

    Yeah, but there was some very good archive material of people like Hoyle, that made it interesting.

    I believe it’s important to ridicule religion as often as possible.

    Religion operates from a privileged deep rooted power position in our society.

    We have to take every opportunity to redress the balance. Persistent ridicule is our best weapon.
