Yes, they are. If you know where to look (It's not difficult to find out who wrote and edited and how reliable they are).

Wikipedia??? Not an authority. How come you are so sure about that? Do you claim to be an expert in every field written in any language on Wikipedia? Do you know who wrote the articles and who reviewed them? Do you know every specialist in every field? If not, how would you know how authoritative W...

This is hawkins. A leading scientist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Hawkins_(philosopher) You're linking to the wrong David Hawkins. The man you are referring to in your OP is Dr. David R. Hawkins, psychiatrist. As you can see, WIkipedia doesn't have a lemma on him (I'm not surprised). David H...

Why do religious people react so disappointed when they find out that you are not religious and don't know much about religions in general? I think it has to do with an inability to tolerate ambiguity. Not all religious people are disappointed when confronted with a non religious person, but those ...

Both my parents were 35, but there were more 'complications'. 1. Strong autistic traits in my mothers family. Autism officially diagnosed in four of my cousins. 2. Father suffered severe malnutrion during WW II (some indication of epigenetic effects have been implied by scientific studies) 3. I was ...

I have a similar non religious background. My grandfather seems to have been religious in his youth, but when WW I came around he was so disgusted with the mindless slaughter that he joined the socialist revolution (Jelles Troelstra). He never went near a church after that. What I find difficult to ...

It's the only way that some people have of feeling important. Fearmongers are people who deliberately induce fear in others for their own purposes, such as: (1) trying to convince you of the correctness of their opinions; (2) trying to promote an idea for financial gain; (3) trying to discredit peo...

The whole Illuminati conspiracy movement is made up of hoaxers and dupes. What, in your opinion, is the motivation of these hoaxers? I take it that these people deliberately spread these far fetched fantasies, but for what purpose? In the hope to make money because Dan Brown did? To feel important?...

What exactly is the 'secret' of keeping teen pregnancies down isn't certain, but it is true that in Europe, the Netherlands is leading in preventing them. Scandinavian countries also do well, but it must be remarked that the abortions rates are higher there. So we have both low teen pregnancy rates ...

I think if there were a few families behind the scenes controlling our economies over many centuries, to most of us it would not be apparent. To people who know little about economy and history perhaps. Economies are chaotic systems. They can´t be controlled or predicted any more than the weather c...

I think those conspiracies are rather boring. They invariably involve 1. The Illuminati 2. The Freemasons 3. The Bilderberg Group (not Bilderburg. The Bilderberg Group is named after Hotel De Bilderberg in Oosterbeek) 4. The Knights Templar 5. All of the above 6. Occassionally alien reptilians And t...

Even if you made it illegal, it has existed since women have got knocked up.I know herbs that can be used,the dosage is tricky,to much and you may have a dead woman. A better option would be mifepristone followed by misoprostol one or two days later. Both are available over the counter in many coun...

I'm not sure what you're trying to ask.

You mean the basepair sequences of genes that are possibly related to autism ? You can find those in various genome databases such as GenBank and EMBL.

Voting is very easy in the Netherlands, especially in the densely populated coastal region (the proper ´Holland´). You don´t have to register. The voting cards are sent automatically by the municipality. There are many polling stations, so people usually don´t have to go very far to vote. My default...

It appears that the suspect was convicted of murder when he lived in Norway, yet was released after less than 20 years. I really do not sympathize with the idea of "forgiveness" for people who were proven to commit serious crimes. I don't see anything strange with his release. He was convicted of m...
