'To its critics, Project Prevention or Crack - an American organisation which pays drug addicts and alcoholics to be sterilised - is a terrifying throwback to the neutering of "defectives" during the 20th Century.'

To permanently deny a woman the chance to ever become a mother could simultaneously decrease her self-worth and lose a possibly strong incentive to beat her addiction. Ask evolution.

Riverbend's blog is the best written on the Web.

In sharp contrast, I wrote Long-Term Effects of the War in Iraq in May and assumed that it would quickly date; oddly, it hasn't. Found WMD, anyone?

'Gerald Posner says Zubaydah has made startling revelations about secret connections linking Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and bin Laden.'

"Bother!" said Pooh, as he realised he'd liberated the wrong country.

'They say that there is a one in 909,000 chance of asteroid 2003 QQ47 impacting our planet.'

'Dr Sara Russell, a meteorite researcher at London's Natural History Museum, told the BBC that she was not worried that 2003 QQ47 would be a danger.

"The odds are very, very low... We have to keep some kind of perspective," she said.'

There is a one in 13,983,816 chance of winning the The National Lottery jackpot.

A 76-year-old golfer has beaten odds of 100 million to one to score two holes-in-one during the same round.

The chances of asteroid 2003 QQ47 impacting our planet are fifteen times greater than the chances of winning The National Lottery jackpot and 110 times greater than scoring two holes-in-one in the same round.

Live in hope? I'd sooner keep some kind of perspective...

Iraq

"The Myth: Iraqis, prior to occupation, lived in little beige tents set up on the sides of little dirt roads all over Baghdad. The men and boys would ride to school on their camels, donkeys and goats. These schools were larger versions of the home units and for every 100 students, there was one turban-wearing teacher who taught the boys rudimentary math (to count the flock) and reading. Girls and women sat at home, in black burkas, making bread and taking care of 10-12 children.

The Truth: Iraqis lived in houses with running water and electricity. Thousands of them own computers. Millions own VCRs and VCDs. Iraq has sophisticated bridges, recreational centers, clubs, restaurants, shops, universities, schools, etc. Iraqis love fast cars (especially German cars) and the Tigris is full of little motor boats that are used for everything from fishing to water-skiing."

The Atheism Web

This basis for atheism, Occam's Razor, is the exact same one that justifies disbelief in the tooth fairy.

Richard Dawkins concluded that "the universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference."
