Did Albert Einstein Really Say He Never Discovered Anything Through Rational Thinking?

This morning on Twitter, I saw one of the organizations I follow quoting Albert Einstein as saying, “I never made one of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking.”

Rick Santorum vs. Science – Who Wins?

Rick Santorum is running for President again, using old talking points from the last century. Santorum is claiming that climate change is a “hoax”, though he has never been able to point to any specific evidence of the supposed hoax.

1787 for America winds down toward Oblivion

The nascent political party 1787 for America introduced itself in 2013 by promising it would provide an arena for populist, bottom-up participation in the choosing of the next President of the United States. Choose whomever you like — let the people decide, declared 1787 for America. But as with the billionaire-funded group Americans Elect, these […]
