Interesting to watch this go on from a distance, especially immediately after the devastating fires in Colorado. The InterWebs vibrate in alarm just like real webs. And there’s a palpable difference in feel depending on the type and scale of the damage.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how we live in the future. And I commented, as an aside, that in light of the truly amazing degree to which we have been able to figure out the universe, it boggles the mind that there are people who are apparently impervious to that understanding. Worse, they base their whole belief systems on that ignorance.
Case in point:
- Things like this truly amazing video appear, not on some obscure scientific website, but on Time’s Newsfeed.
- Bill O’Reilly recently said that we haven’t figured out what causes the tide to go in and out with great regularity.
