<p>Live long and prosper in a future of pure logic.</p> Spock’s Brain

In the next few decades we will see the rise of something called the Cult of Spock, consisting of people who have taken the fictional Vulcan philosophy of emotionless logic as their life credo. They will start online forums and public meeting groups to train themselves in pure reason, and to teach themselves techniques to keep their emotions at bay. Their first response to any situation will be to analyze it for its...

2015.07.07 gmo ice cream-2 The Hidden Pitfalls of GMOs

Heartland Healing and The Reader are hardly late-comers to the GMO issue. The Reader published our first cover story on the subject way back in 1996, before most people could spell GMO. By now, most people realize that GMO is the popular acronym for “genetically modified organism.”

The complete number is much higher, but even using the 440K figure, that’s the equivalent of 60 Jumbo Jet crashes every month killing all on board.

<p>Sumer Is Icumen In.</p> The old gods are new again

By 2050, the largest and fastest growing religion in America will be paganism. It will take many forms, including Wicca and Druidism, but will all be marked by respect for nature and a connection to the ancient religions of Europe. These modern pagans will have many holidays in common, all drawn from the pagan past, including the harvest holiday of Samhain at the end of October and the planting festival of Beltane...
