    Atheism is coming out of the closet.

    According to the Amerian Religious Identification Survey [USA Today], the non-religious (aka atheist or agnostic) at 15%, are the fastest growing segment of American religious affiliation. There are more non-religious in America than any other religious affiliation except Catholics and Baptists.

    Leaving Religion Behind: A Portrait of Nonreligious America

    Sam Harris has written two fascinating books, The End of Faith, and Letter to a Christian Nation, where the influence of religious philosophy on the modern age is examined in plain language.

    Chris Hedges describes the rising political influence of the Christian Dominionists, who believe they are working to establish the kingdom of heaven, here on earth, or maybe working toward armageddon. Here's a video of him discussing his book, American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America" which he might not have written, except that no major publication would print his brief article on the topic, The Christian Right and the Rise of American Facsism.

    Speak Out for the separation of Church and State, which the Founding Fathers believed essential to maintining democratic freedoms.

    Speak Out against the influence of religion over your government. Oppose efforts to use school boards to undermine science education and bring religion into public schools calling it "intelligent design". Oppose efforts to blur the lines between government and religious organizations, through the federal office of "faith based initiatives".

    Speak Out. If you don't say it's wrong, then that says it's right.

    “thread farming” in Mac OS X Leopard?

    August 4th, 2006 · No Comments

    As suggested by others in recent years, (e.g. The Free Lunch Is Over: A Fundamental Turn Toward Concurrency in Software ) language and compiler support for implicit parallelism could become important if it continues to be easier to add processor cores to a CPU than to boost clock cycles or add useful new processor types (integer, floating point, vector/SIMD, streams…) We’ll have quad-core CPUs with 3 cores mostly idle most of the time within about two years, if something else doesn’t change.It’s pretty easy to see why improved and built-in implicit parallelization would be useful, what with every machine having extra CPU cores laying about largely untapped, but harder to see how to tap them.
