Bush, Rumsfeld should be pursued for torture: UN rapporteur

Only one day after George Bush left office, and there are calls to charge him and his fellow “evil-doers” for acts of torture and improper care of the Guantanamo Bay prisoners under the Geneva Convention. Unfortunately I see this all going nowhere. There has been plenty of talk of impeaching him for the same thing, and it going nowhere. At least it is an interesting read none the less! But we can hope and dream ๐Ÿ˜‰

George Bush is a war criminal and he knows it

Prayer rooms look to be popular perks of the job! I want a gaming and beer drinking room…I hope I never see this in Canada! Why the hell do people feel the need to pray at work?

It looks like President Bush is trying to save his ass for being tried for war crimes! Here is a CNN report. WTF? Is the report more shocking, or that I am quoting CNN????Don’t you find it ironic that though he denies any war crimes, he is trying to pass a bill in Congress to protect himself from being tried for war crimes? Me too…He knows that he is in shit.

You know about my feelings towards Scientology. I think it is quite a crazy cult with lots of celebs in it. Well, it turns out that Tom Cruise’s ex-wife, Nicole Kidman hates scientology too! Here is a story on why she named her baby Sunday Rose

Evolution: Science keeps building mountain of evidence

With a recent find of an early 4 legged animal fossil, scientists are saying, “told ya so“…in response to the creationists who say there are no transitional species in the fossil record. Here is an article over at the BBC website.

Some evolutionary biologists are suggesting that amendments need to be made to Darwin’s evolutionary theory. Well, isn’t this what science is all about? Modern DNA analysis just adds to the story, IMO.

Remember not too long ago, environmentalists warned that “one day” the Arctic poles would completely melt? Well, it looks like this year is the year! I really feel for those arctic species.

On a much more recent note, America is collectively losing it’s mind. Apparently it is OK to torture terrorist suspects, and if the Bush administration just calls it “harsh interrogation”, everything is fine…WTF? Very sad.

Understanding Evolution and protecting where it all began

Arstechnica is reporting that the National Centre for Science Education in the USA, working with another group on the advancement of science, the AAAS, has been meeting to flesh out the technical nature of evolution for the public.

Misperceptions meet state of the art in evolution research:

The Galapagoes Islands will forever be famous as being the place where Charles Darwin studied 800px-galapagos_iguana1and fleshed out the theory of Natural Selection. Unfortunately, the islands have become a tourist destination, and industry is flooding the area. With this comes the need for energy. Ecuador has been installing wind turbines to meet the electrical needs on the islands, and replacing it’s dependance on oil.

And the conversion of the Galapogoes.

The Daily Green has a story on the launch of the Encyclopedia of Life. It is an on-line encyclopedia with the ambitious goal of detailing all the species on the planet. They have hit 30,000 species so far…Only another 1.8 Million to go…

The encyclopedia of Life.

On another not so pleasant note, the USA has been using torture to get information from prisoners. It is sick, and the Bush regime should be tried for International War Crimes. Here is a new advertising campaign put on by Amnesty International trying to bring more attention to this war crime.

Torture is wrong!

Will the USA ever leave Iraq?
