New Agers and Creationists should not be President

Anatomy of Man's Body as Governed by the Twelve Constellations

Anatomy of Man's Body as Governed by the Twelve Constellations

Roger Ebert gets it right: at a deep level there is great similarity between new age and creationist thinking:

New Age beliefs are the Creationism of the Progressives. I move in circles where most people would find it absurd to believe that humans didn’t evolve from prehistoric ancestors, yet many of these same people quite happily believe in astrology, psychics, reincarnation, the Tarot deck, the i Ching, and sooth-saying. Palmistry and phrenology have pretty much blown over.

Cormac McCarthy’s Typewriter Dies After 50 Years and 5 Million Words


Cormac McCarthy has written more than a dozen novels, several screenplays, two plays, two short stories, countless drafts, letters and more — and nearly every one of them was tapped out on a portable Olivetti manual typewriter he bought in a Knoxville, Tenn., pawnshop around 1963 for $50.

It has never been serviced or cleaned other than blowing out the dust with a service station hose. … I have typed on this typewriter every book I have written including three not published. Including all drafts and correspondence I would put this at about five million words over a period of 50 years.

Original NY Times article.
