Science Can Be Interesting ! Symphony of Science !

After being cooped up due to a mild ” blizzard ” ( In the mid – South, an INCH of snow qualifies as a ” blizzard “. 🙂 ) & being unable to leave my apartment ( Not a fan of frostbite or losing feeling in my appendages, that sort of thing. ), I both started to rediscover the mystic philosophical writings of Jalaluddin Rumi AND Symphony of Science on Youtube. Carl Sagan, Brian Cox, Professor Michio Kaku, Stephen Hawking, Neil deGrasse Tyson & ALMOST a cast of thousands – maybe dozens, at least. Auto – tuned physicists, astronomers, planetary geologists & anthropologists !

Fun with science ! I only hope I cut & pasted the link correctly. I’ve had trouble with that in the past…..

The War On Christmas Is Over – Muslim Sufi Artists Play Favorite Christmas Songs (Video)

I’m not going to offer much commentary – political or otherwise here. Just a wish for a Merry Christmas & / or a non – denominational ” Happy Holidays “. Contrary to what Fox & the hyper – paranoid conservatives want us to believe, the followers of the Prophet are ** not ** lying in wait until they can storm our homes & blow us up or skewer us on / behead us with swords or other sharp objects.

Most of them just want to live their lives in peace like everybody else. What a concept.

Again – Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays – To ALL people of Good Faith ( or even no specific faith ) everywhere on Earth.

John Lennon’s 75th Birthday –

He worked for peace through music & art. Passive resistance. Some people equated him Mahatma Gandhi & Martin Luther King, Jr.

I watched the televised tribute to him on AMC & am watching the encore presentation now.

May his hope & idea for a peaceful Christmas be recognized, after too many mindless acts of terrorism & violence, too many to count, over too many years…..

As usual lately, the Youtube link was improperly cut – & – pasted. I wish WordPress had way to post videos from Youtube directly…..
