    "Organism", semantics, and objectivity[W:70,89]

    Many many pro-lifers (and the occasional pro-choicer) on this forum has stated, in varying forms, that "it is an objective scientific fact that a human zygote is an organism/human being". I keep popping up to dispute this, and the discussion disintegrates - only to re-emerge again quite quickly...

    Heartbleed

    BBC News - Heartbleed Bug: Public urged to reset all passwords I used one of the tools linked to by the article, and DP comes up as a (potentially) compromised website. Don't know if it's me misusing the tool, or even if it's a problem we can fix ourselves, but was definitely worth putting it...

    Donation reminder - small modification. Also - 'likes' tools.

    First, just a tiny thing - I just got the '2000 posts!' donation request, which reminded me to actually get around to donating - so it worked great! I just had the small thought that it would be worth putting a link in the reminder itself straight to the donation page, as I then spent ten...

    "I'm Christian, unless you're gay"

    A friend of mine just stuck this link onto facebook, followed shortly by just one of the responses to it. The blogpost itself rambles a bit, and isn't the most concise in the world, but the message behind it is a powerful one, and one which I thought well, well worth sharing. To give a shorter...

    The tip of the mosque-berg?

    Firstly, let me apologise for the dreadful pun. Secondly, I apologise for being yet another person bringing up That Building. It's fairly obvious that the ominously-named Ground Zero Mosque has created enough furore to keep pundits on all sides happily distracted from such real-world tragedies...

    Final 'climategate' report released

    BBC News - CRU climate scientists 'did not withold data' The last of the three independent inquiries into the 'climategate' email frenzy has been released. Unsurprisingly, it echoes the previous two, clearing those involved of any attempt to mislead or hid data. It does criticise the 'lack of...

    Rot8 v1.0 (beta) - a game by iangb

    I posted a thread a while ago about a game I was just starting to make in Visual Basic which was a 2D platformer in which you could rotate the direction of gravity as you go along. The game has now got into beta - it's got rudimentary graphics, a comprehensive level creator, six mediocre levels...

    Game Idea

    Hi all A few years ago, one of my bigger hobbies was computer programming - nothing huge, just little games in VB6. Recently, I rediscovered VB and (once I got used to VB.NET, aaagh) am now making a game idea which has been bouncing around in my head for quite some time - a 2d physics-based...

    Wotcha

    Morning, all. I've been lurking here for a while now after seeing this place mentioned on 4forums - thought it was about time that I joined up. I tend to post mainly on abortion issues, gun control issues, and anything science-based (from YEC to AGW), with a side dose of philosophy and...
