Ptolemy

Display name: Ptolemy
About Me:

Live in Cape Town. Retired academic. Read a lot, Hike a lot with 2 dogs, Cycle a lot

The scientific method is the most fruitful and trusted method of investigation.

Wars often feature prominently in documentaries of the 20th Century and yet these traumatic events tend to be of a passing nature.

Cellphones have changed our lives irrevocably. Families no longer lose each other in shopping centres and the breakdown of a motor vehicle is not the calamity that it use to be.

The Kitzmer vs Dover School District case: Separation of State and Religion at Educational Institutions in the USA.

I am sure that reported accidents are just the top of a small iceberg, most of which are not reported, especially if there were no fatalities.

Where the earth, the moon, the stars and living beings, including ourselves, come from are ancient questions which are addressed in the opening verses of the book of Genesis.

A debate on religion or a lack thereof has been going on ever since I started to read and contribute to the News24 forum

A very long time ago, perhaps more than a thousand years, there lived near the polar circle, in what is now Norway, a group of mostly redheaded Vikings, craftsmen of the long ships.

A recent article by Claudia Meades on three reasons why she thinks South Africa will fail must be one of the most widely read and commented on ever to appear in the News24 forum.

I have been intrigued by the ongoing debate on News24 between theists and atheists, and it's of interest to take note of what Einstein thought about God.

A click on Julius Malema brings up a number of news items and it then seems that Mr Malema is an outspoken individual, but this is a character trait of most politicians...
