One look

Just watched a video of a muslim woman holding her own against a muslim cleric or whatever, they are called, who was condemning her for being on a TV show.  He insisted that she was a disgrace to her country and religion. She justified it by explaining that it was the only income for her family and how honorable her behavior and dress was.

He told her that no man was to look at her twice and she told him submit himself for punishment.

I understand the principles being applied by the cleric and that there is a probability of a sin by a man if a woman allows herself to be part of it.  I have told one of my nieces that same thing.  I am not sure what she understood but  I told her my first thought about how she was dressed was my fault. My second thought about how she was dressed was hers.

The muslim woman's final response to the cleric when he accused her of being in violation of the teaching of Mohammed was to rebuke the actions of Muslim clerics in their religion who are molesting and raping children in the mosques.

I understand and support correct principles, I abhor the hypocrisy, and I fear for her well-being.

Condensing/ Consolidating Planet Earth

Plate tectonics have never really satisfied me as being a very good theory.  I think a better theory is a condensing earth.  As the earth cools and its interior escapes to the exterior there is a transitioning of the planet from one state to another.  Like a ballon as it looses air the perimeter changes diameter and its surface consolidates. Obviously the earth is not a simple ballon and it crust is miles thick so the resulting geologic features and interfaces are much more complicated but I can not phathom how a single mega mass can distriubte itself around the globe.  It is much easier for me to believe that as the planet cooled and its surface folded and conslidated its interior flowed to the exterior it did so in a non-homonogus fashion which allows for the current configuration. 

The geologic similarities across the oceans and the discovery of common fossils is currently unexplainable by my notion and there is numerous scientific data that I am unfamiliar with which may alter my thinking but for right now I like considering the condensing theory.

The theory of the very large and the very small

String theory seems to presume that something is vibrating.  I prefere to think that "something" is space and   the so called dark matter which is, perhaps, clumpy and randomly traveling through it like a stone through water or air.  Thus the collision or interaction of the the two matters result in the manifestation of the universe.

This allows for all of the currently discovered natural laws of motion and energy to be exhibited through the known univese.  It allows for all of the unknown, unseen, and unrecognized forces as well.

I have no proof but the very concept of a string begs the conclusion of the string being composed of something else which then requires the explination of what that is.

The physical universe based on the notion of space and dark mater, which are the simplest components of the universe and don't actually require an explination because neither can be seen or measured, is the evidence of their existence. All things vibrate which leads me to the conclusion that the smallest entities are at work and the outcome is both the very large and the very small.
