Shadow, do you hear that whining noise again, a faint buzzing, somewhat musical but just needs swotting away? 

Is he talking male genitals again?

According to the telly, there's a 50% chance of Ebola reaching Britain before the end of the month.

A nurse in Spain has symptoms.  She's just returned from an infected area, where she was treating a priest who died.  Clearly he didn't pray hard as hard or as well as that US medic.

It's an African disease, so I would have thought that the most likely British outbreak would be in London.

Looks like she caught Ebola in the Spanish hospital she worked in.  That's quite worrying as they knew what they were dealing with and took extreme precautions. 


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Blimey I know a Dr going to Sierra Leone to help treat people with Ebola. Brave and selfless action. True hero.

Larry, I would suggest that there is a difference between superstition and spirituality.  That many people confuse it claim to be atheist or Christian is no biggie.  One thing I will write as a scientist is that we are studying a model of reality and not reality itself, I take the latter to be a matter is spirituality.

Spirituality is a model. It is a way of rationalising something that we don't understand. It is however a flawed model.

That, to me, seems a perfect definition if superstition.  As a scientist, I am happy to such nonsense.

 

PS: I make the same points to Buddhists when they describe Buddhism as scientific.

Isn't spirituality and superstition pretty much the same thing? A belief in the intangible and inexplicable.

That's my take on it.  I see no daylight between the two.  Can't understand something or find something upsetting?  Just make up a comforting explanation.
