Hey everyone, the British National Archives have finally begun releasing their UFO files, and even the pope says it's okay to believe in aliens! Woohoo!

However, the University of Cambridge is investigating atheism and has a well-done, detailed website to show for it. I expect the pope is not so pleased about that.

A posthuman Bertie Wooster would probably be an atheist, but he'd be too busy getting into horrible scrapes for anyone to care too much.

Studies are showing a correlation between suicides and disturbances in the earth's magnetic field. Coincidence? Or something more?

If you're not interested in all this intangible stuff and want to get out and see something, don't forget the always-awesome Bay to Breakers race happens this weekend in San Francisco. Also, if you're in Europe and have a sudden yen to see the catacombs of Paris, there's a detailed website to study before you venture underground!

That suicide/geomagnetism article may be the stupidest and most irresponsible thing I've read this year, and given the amount of political coverage I've been reading, that's saying a lot.

The two sentences of disclaimer right at the very end hardly make up for the tone of the rest of the article.

Pardon my tone, but stuff like this just drives me bananas.

The "investigating atheism" site has some good stuff, though. Thanks for that link.
