"The Iran hearings have shown how the Republican Party can no longer be trusted with the presidency."

"If Republicans win the White House next year, they’ll almost certainly control the entire federal government. Many of them, running for president or aspiring to leadership roles in Congress, are trying to block the nuclear deal with Iran. This would be a good time for these leaders to show that they’re ready for the responsibilities of national security and foreign policy. Instead, they’re showing the opposite. Over the past several days, congressional hearings on the deal have become a spectacle of dishonesty, incomprehension, and inability to cope with the challenges of a multilateral world."

"For scientists, evolution is a fact. We know that life evolved with the same certainty that we know the Earth is roughly spherical, that gravity keeps us on it, and that wasps at a picnic are annoying.

Not that you would know that from the media in some countries, where evolution is ferociously argued about – put down as "just a theory" or dismissed as a flat-out lie.

Why are biologists so certain about this? What is the evidence? The short answer is that there is so much it's hard to know where to start. But here is a very cursory summary of the evidence that life has, indeed, evolved."

"One of the marchers stabbed at Jerusalem's gay pride parade last week has died, police and health officials in Jerusalem said Sunday.

Shira Banki was one of six people stabbed Thursday by an attacker named by police as Yishai Shlissel, an Orthodox Jew who was released from prison just weeks ago after serving 10 years for stabbing marchers at a 2005 gay pride parade in Jerusalem."

Our Weekend post has cool space news... but also begins a series in which I hope to fully catalog upward towards a hundred hypothetical explanations for the Fermi Paradox!  Why do we see no signs (so far) of the long-expected ET civilizations? I've been in this for 30 years and have studied it (probably) as thoroughly as anyone.  Time to share.  (And you ETs listening in right now? Yes you. I'm baaaaack! ;-)

"TO appreciate the dumbing down of American politics, consider this: Conservative Republicans, indignant about abortion, are trying to destroy a government program that helps prevent 345,000 abortions a year.

Inevitably in politics there are good ideas and bad ideas. But occasionally there are also moronic ideas — such as the House Republican proposal to kill America’s main family planning program, Title X."

"I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."

"Take politics out of the picture and look at the numbers, Heinrich said, and you get a clearer view of the deal.

“I think the numbers paint a very much more defensible and stable situation than what we’re faced with now,” the senator said.

Listing the benefits of the agreement, Heinrich noted that "you move from having 19,000 centrifuges [today], from Iran having 164 just a few years ago, and you reduce that by two-thirds."

"You take their stockpile," he added, "which has been at 20 percent -- which is very dangerous, easy to enrich to highly enriched, weapons-grade levels -- and you say, we’re going to get this stockpile and we’re going to reduce it down by 98 percent so they don't have enough to actually make a bomb.”

He also pointed out that the deal would reduce the number of nuclear facilities Iran is permitted to operate from three to one.

“All of that shows a move in the right direction,” Heinrich continued. “I think there’s a tendency among some of our colleagues who have argued against this from a political standpoint to want to compare the deal with the unicorn deal, the deal that sounds pretty but doesn’t exist in reality. And we don’t have that option. There are risks in a deal and there are much worse risks in not embracing this deal.”___
