Psalm 8:
3: When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast established;
4: what is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him?
5: Yet thou hast made him little less than God, and dost crown him with glory and honor.
6: Thou hast given him dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet,

At the very same time, being "a little less than God" can also be quite an overstatement.

Puzzled

His was the very first 'blog', though he calls it a day journal.

Larry Pryor

Reminds me of something I read somewhere that the solar system is made up of the Sun, Jupiter and a bunch of debris.

Brent Brown

I'm feeling quite small now...

Rhys

Hmm...I think I've met some people though who have an ego bigger than Antares.

Ed Peters

Okay. I'll ask: who is Jeff Rense? Art Bell, I've heard of. But Jeff Rense?

For a similar effect, go here;

http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/newsdesk/archive/releases/2002/05/video/a

and click on either the mpeg or the Quicktime animation.

It is a zoom animation of a star in the Orion nebula, made up of a montage of images from the Hubbell telescope.

Who's Jeff Rense? Put it this way - last year he gave house-room to a guy named Abrahamson who attacked Noam Chomsky as a right-wing dupe and probably a member of the Trilateral Commission as well. Someone sent me the link as a joke; I might have found it funny if I'd been able to read past about the third paragraph, but I got a headache and abandoned it.

The planets-and-stars-to-scale, though, is beautiful. Blind pigs, acorns, that sort of thing.

Jeff Rense is kind of a poor man's Art Bell . . . only crazier and really, really left-wing.

Art Bell stepped down as host of COAST TO COAST AM awhile back (although he still occasionally does a show); George Noory hosts the show now. As a nightly listener, I've grown quite fond of Noory -- he's "grandfatherly" in a way and warmer than Art. And pretty sane, considering the conspiracy-mad wackos he has on on a regular basis (like Alex Jones).

Ed Peters

Oh. Thanks....i guess.

Alex Jones a conspiracy nut? Hardly. He doesn't just make things up; he actually researches everything he asserts, and can back it up with hard evidence. I challenge you to look at the evidence he provides, and show me where it is wrong.

Ha! Alex Jones backing up his claims? Are you kidding? Most of his proof is based on some obscure interpretation of any document official or not he can glean. Is he always delusional and wrong? No, he does get some things right; but come on! A lot of the things he claims are crazy, but hey I know a lot of people on this continent like conspiracy theories and the like so knock yourself out...

Tim J.

My experience is that conspiracy nuts are never lacking for hard evidence... the problem is with the funhouse-mirror way in which they look at things.

It's not the evidence, it's what you make of it. If you start out warped, you end up warped.

G.K. Chesterton had some helpful observations on madness in his book "Orthodoxy".

Rense and Repeat

Jeff Rense: hates Bush, Jews, science, processed foods and haircuts.

Loves: South American UFOs, conspiracies, radicals, photoshoped pictures of Bush in nazi outfits, and talking softly yet ignoring logic.
