The Zeitgeist Movement, the Venus Project, the Freeworld Charter, a New World Society, many Resource Based Economy sites, and many, many others are all trying to make people aware of the unsustainable future in an infinite-growth monetary system.
The Occupy Movements have yet to define the long-term goal, but I think everyone is comprehending the inherent flaws and corruption in the money-based economic models of the past. A recent post from the Freeworld Charter gets to the point, "We can't stand idly by and let an IMAGINARY Money System cause REAL Death and Destruction of the world and its inhabitants. Money is fiction. Time to get real."

Jeremy Rifkin is one of the great thinkers of our time. He teaches at Wharton University and advises a number of CEO's and chief of government such as Angela Merkel or Jose Luis Zappatero. In his last book, "The Empathic Civilization", Rifkin shows how human being a naturally leaning towards empathy rather than confrontation with others. Our education and cultural framework, a.o., drive us in kind of "we vs them" mindset.
Nowadays, with the rise of oil prices, the global warming, we are getting conscious of that we belong to the same biosphere, where we are all interconnected, such as in the blogosphere. What you earn, I'm not losing it. Thus, that new state of mind fosters collaborative behaviour within huge networks.
That is what is coming with the third industrial revolution, that relies on four pillars.
One of them is that any building in the future will become its own power plant. All surplus will land on the grid. Energy will become like the internet is today, with a lot of contributers capable of interacting directly with each other to exchange power, as we exhange information today in the blogosphere.
The politcal opposition, tomorrow, according to Jeremy Rifkin, won't be between left and right, but between advocates of vertical, patriarcal, closed models and those who support horizontal, open source, distributed, interconnected models....
Jerry Coyne, a professor of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago and author of the seminal book, Why Evolution is True, is one of the world's most eloquent defenders of evolutionary science in the face of legal, religious, and cultural opposition. In this talk, Coyne explored the evidence for evolution, why Americans are so resistant to accepting the theory, and what can be done to make the country more evolution-friendly.

Is there any value in spirituality? As an atheist you may expect me to say no; but if I'm being honest, I'd have to consider myself a spiritual person. Of course I'm not talking about some ghostly ethereal soul that lives inside my body. There's no reason to think there's anything like that. I'm talking about the essence of human. There aren't many words in our language that capture what that is. at least for me. And so I use the word spirit, in the same way I use the phrase bless you. For rhetoric's sake. I can only describe it as the action or ability to see beauty. to feel wonder. and to be in awe.
Religion and all groups faith of course serve only to prostitute the awe, and the mystery we all feel as humans. they bottle our essence and try putting lid on the wonder we naturally feel. They fail of course. Religion points to the man behind the curtain in an attempt answer the mystery. when in reality, there is no man. the mystery is just that. a mystery.
But even though I don't believe in the supernatural, I try to be as honest as I can to myself, about my spirituality.
On my trip out west just a couple months ago I remember a moment standing in a field that looked up at the grand tetons. the tetons in wyoming are these massive glacier capped mountains that just cut into the sky. I remember thinking to myself. Something much greater than me must have caused this. I know it.
I also remember sleeping out underneath a cool and clear sky next to the dunes in white sands national park. Looking up all I could see was just a pile of stars. More than I'd ever understood to exist. Looking at them all, still and perfect, and vast beyond my ability to comprehend, I felt uncommonly humble. And grateful just to be alive.
There are moments when I'm with good friends, where it just feels good to breath. The taste of chilled apple butter on a warm buttermilk biscuit is often more than delicious, to me it feels enlightening. And a soft kiss to me can honestly stop time and space.
At times I can be so overwhelmed by the sensation of being alive, that I cry. or I laugh. or I scream. or I just breath deeply.
And no, I never once imagine that to be supernatural. I understand, that the thing that is so much greater than me, to have caused the Tetons has a name. and it's called plate tectonics.
That being humble is simply the feeling of recognizing the reality of ones small significance to a universe so massive. And being grateful to be alive doesn't require a person to be grateful toward.
I recognize that being happy in a comfortable social setting is a evolutionary trait of my species. That my body naturally craves specific foods for nutritional or maybe even psychological reasons. And that the intoxication of romance is most likely driven by the need to procreate.
But I am one with the universe. Not metaphysically, but physically. I am as much the universe as a supernova. made of the same particles, governed by the same forces. I am Genes that mutated randomly, then were selected naturally based on their success at survival.
And I love applebutter on a biscuit. I collapse in awe at the magnificence of this place. I crave romance. and I breath appreciation for it all..
I have to, with all my essence. with all my spirit. because imagine, in all the universe, we may be the only things that can, and that's beautiful.

The number of strict ultra-orthodox Jews in Israel is increasing, sparking fears its secular character is under attack. Many resent the special treatment the orthodox community receives.
"They do not serve in the army. They pay almost nothing as taxes", complains Alon Nativ. Thanks to their high birth rate, Israel's ultra-orthodox community is growing fast. This has led to a series of confrontations with secularists. In September, a delicatessen which sold pork was firebombed while a planned gay pride march provoked violent protests. There are fears secular Israelis will be forced to adapt ultra-orthodox practises. Women have to sit in separate areas from men on some buses after pressure from the orthodox community.

55 anos se passaram desde que o experimento de Miller-Urey, e a ciência tem feito enormes progressos na resolução da origem da vida. Este vídeo resume um dos melhores modelos da atualidade. Sim, existem outros. A ciência pode nunca vir a saber como a vida REALMENTE começou, mas vamos saber muitas maneiras como a vida PODE ter começado.
Não se deixe enganar pelos argumentos criacionistas porque até mesmo a compreensão de um mínimo de biologia e química é suficiente para perceber que eles não têm nenhum indício do que estão falando....

CBC Canada difuza în data de 29.09.2011 un nou documentar, The Trouble with Experts, în regia lui Josh Freed, care ne reaminteşte într-un stil alert şi ironic, de una dintre laturile fundamentale ale manipulării televizate, dependenţa noastră de "experţi", care ne spun cum şi ce să mâncăm, cum să ne creştem copiii, cum să votăm, cum să ne reparăm casele, cum să alegem vinurile sau operele de artă, cum să interpretăm evenimentele politice şi, până de curând, când marea escrocherie economică mondială a fost dată din nou în vileag, ce acţiuni bursiere să alegem.
