You can’t disprove an unprovable hypothesis…but you can render it so preposterously unlikely that anyone who still takes it seriously has a serious problem.
Lawrence Krauss and Daniel Dennett respond to the question: “Has science disproved the existence of God (a creator, god/gods)?” from Het Denkgelag’s ‘The Limits of Science’ conversation.
Daniel Dennett is a philosopher, cognitive scientist, and writer, who recently published a book entitled “Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking.” An example of this man’s insight can be witnessed in the big think interview “Crazy Wisdom: Daniel Dennett on Reductio ad Absurdum”.
Professor Lawrence Krauss is a theoretical physicist, Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Department, as well as Inaugural Director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. His latest book is “A Universe From Nothing”; however, he has authored many notable books on physics and cosmology. Enjoy his presentation for The School of Life ‘Sunday Sermons’ on “Cosmic Connections.” and keep up with his cinematic duet of rational proportions in “The Unbelievers” to which he road-tripped with fellow colleague and vocal atheist, Richard Dawkins to discuss science literacy, reality, and the importance of submitting all views - religious or otherwise - to question and meticulous scrutiny.(via sagansense)
Just saw Krauss and Dawkins present their film ‘The Unbelievers’ at UCSD- and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
Amazing song to work to. Supercool vocals, electronics and soul. A love for both.

Yes! For example: It’s Okay To Be Smart's Joe Hanson, Dr. Michio Kaku, NASA's Aprille Ericsson-Jackson, Veritasium's Derek Muller, to name a few (and there are so many more people we adore too!). Who do you think is a good science role model?

Did I just get mentioned in the same e-breath as Michio Kaku and Brian Greene? I could just hug you guys, ASAPscience. But also… wut?!?!
A few months before he died, Carl Sagan recorded a moving message which he dedicated to future explorers and settlers of Mars. 7 years later, the first succesful landing of a long-term rover to the red planet’s surface was achieved. In 2012, the Curiosity rover (its self-portrait on the image) landed on Mars and is still going.
This always hits me right in the feels. Especially when you listen to his voice recording
Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code and markup. It’s pretty fantastic, and I like it a lot. There are sooo many features. Here’s just a few shortcuts that are worth memorizing.
⌘KB - Toggle side bar on/off
⌘D - Incremental Select. Each subsequent press of D will…
This is the sexiest code editor ever. I love it.
Even in access to cellphones and the Internet, the United States ranks a disappointing 23rd, partly because one American in five lacks Internet access.
‘It’s astonishing that for a country that has Silicon Valley, lack of access to information is a red flag.’

Chris Sherlock has filed a bug against Firefox in Mozilla’s bugzilla bug-tracker, entitled “Pledge never to implement HTML5 DRM.” It’s an interesting way of using the open/transparent development protest to allow Web developers to voic…
