I've just been reading about "Biblical Minimalism", the "Copenhagen School", Philip Davies' "In Search of Ancient Israel", ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_R._Davies ), "The Myth of Israel" by Thomas L Thompson, "The Bible Unearthed" etc. The theory, apparently increasingly widely accepted, is ...

Here is a brilliant photo-diary of a day this weekend in DayZ by Evan Lahti of PC Gamer: http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/05/27/day-z-photo-diary/ Looks fun! :lol :) Wondering whether the anti-social "shoot on sight" reactions are fed by the sort of safety created by being in/finding a group whether curr...

Just happened to come across an article at Alternet about a very recent research paper/study investigating the effects of stress on pro-social behaviour; apparently high-stress situations increase people's tendency to trust and share ... this absolutely confirms what I've been saying seems to have b...

You forgot to mention the mod was made by one guy and this same guy works for Bohemia Interactive, the creators of Arma2 . :oops ... It didn't occur to me that a game mod should be attributed just like a quote. Sorry about that. I will edit my opening post. Thanks for the reminder. :) And here is a...

PS. Apparently the teamwork/play with strangers is increasingly rare though ... maybe because the game doesn't "reward" team play enough ... ? ... It makes me see why kinship used to be so important, before various forms of law and government were invented. What would it take for people who don't kn...

Here's three guys hyper-excited about finding a working jeep in the game ... and worrying about how to hide it from other players :lol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjmWSDyHqwM [YouTube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjmWSDyHqwM[/YouTube] Apparently the teamwork/play with strangers is increasingly...

I've been watching some Youtube videos of DayZ, which is a brilliant mod of the game ARMA 2 combined with ZOMBIES :lol by just one person, Dean Hall, ( who has also been employed by Bohemia Interactive, the producers of ARMA, since January ) ... plus the inevitable player-killer-players ... but also...

I started last November/December doing a bare 10 minutes a day/five times a week with free online workout videos, and I'm now managing 30-45 minutes twice a day six days a week, and enjoying it! :lol I'm doing a mixture of "Core"/Bodyweight exercises, ( sometimes simply several short so-called "warm...

How about just ignoring them and having a fry instead? http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8168/7211409178_e5969bf882_c.jpg Works for me. :) The breakfast in the photo looks delicious ...

Both my nearly 13 year old son and I, both somewhere on or very close to the autism spectrum, have been finding physical exercises useful for strength and "inside our body" confidence/control etc, aswell as enjoyable, but we aren't going to any "real life" classes; we are using free online videos of...

... ... ... Awesome post! :D I experienced something very similar after I turned 29, following a decade of pretty heavy/constant/often binge drinking, and frequent takeaways esp bacon cheeseburgers, lots of chocolate bars, very little fruit and nearly no vegetables at all. I was by no stretch of th...

... I started walking 15 minutes after each meal back then. now i walk more than 2 hours a day. I was just thinking today how amazing it was that my 12/nearly 13 year old AS son and I started last October/November with the occasional/three times a week 10 minute weight-lifting/upper-body workout se...

I was thinking this morning that atheism is a belief that material reality is all there is. In a sense it's a form of monotheism. That means it's a faith for which the basis is measure-ability, repeatability and the senses. Monotheism is a belief in a God or a higher power I don't see how it is a f...

... Looked at that way my choosing/deciding to believe in god was itself an act of faith. It certainly felt like it. :) PS. And it definitely had a knock-on/ripple/reconciling effect; I stopped believing in contra-causal-free-will almost overnight, which was a profound relief; I hadn't even realise...

I had not heard low carb specifically related to a northern genetic heritage, but I'm basically German-Irish. :) I'm German-northern English with apparently celtic roots somewhere. The low-carb and cold climate/northern connection is because people with that ancestry have far fewer ( I think it's f...
