Ever wonder what it would be like to have 8 million followers on Instagram? How would it feel? What would it look like?
Well, as a matter of fact, it looks a lot like a cascading deluge of notifications, streaming down a smartphone screen like a waterfall.
In a video posted to YouTube by a person doting the appellation "oramis mo," one gets to see what it's like to have that many followers, specifically the notifications process. more >>
Some may call it an example of the machines taking over. Other may dub it the inevitable wave of the future. We just think it's kind of cool.
Earlier this month a fellow who dotes the appellation "J majerus" on YouTube posted a brief look at a Tesla model S 7.1.
The automobile, in addition to looking quite stylish, has the ability to park itself, with the owner simply needing to click a button that turns on a feature called "Summon." more >>
Atheist author and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins says the best argument for God he's ever hard has to do with a deistic God as the fine-tuner of the universe.
Dawkins visited Google's office in Kirkland, Washington, to discuss his book, Brief Candle in the Dark: My Life in Science, after which he took a couple of readers' questions. He was asked in a video published on Monday what is the best argument in favor of God and the best argument against evolution that he has heard.
Dawkins prefaced his answer by making it clear that he is not "in any sense admitting that there is a good argument," and insisted that "there is no decent argument for the existence of deities." more >>
So you were probably one of the tens of millions of people who watched Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
In both the film and many of the trailers, the deformed helmet of Darth Vader is shown to be in the possession of the villainous First Order fellow Kylo Ren.
Now some of you probably thought to yourselves, "Gee whiz, how the heck did he get his hands on that helmet? Wasn't it destroyed in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi?" more >>
Texas Pastor John Burke has claimed that close to 1,000 near-death experiences of the afterlife from people around the world he has researched affirm a very biblical picture of Heaven.
"When I examined the similarities of the actual NDE reports across ages and cultures, they affirm each other and Scripture," Burke wrote in an article for Fox News on Friday.
"These are accounts told by surgeons, college professors, commercial airline pilots, bank presidents — people who have nothing to gain, but credibility to lose. Their experiences align with reports from around the globe, from children, even from blind people who claim to 'see' this same awe-inspiring picture of Heaven," he added. more >>
Fans of the American science talk show "StarTalk," which is hosted by famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, have reason to rejoice as the popular National Geographic program has just been renewed for a third season.
"Neil deGrasse Tyson is not only an incredibly accomplished astrophysicist, but also a very gifted communicator who blends pop culture and humor to make science accessible and fun, making him — and 'StarTalk' — a great fit for National Geographic Channel," a statement by National Geographic Channel Global CEO Courteney Monroe confirming the show's renewal read.
The NatGeo talk show is a spin-off of the "StarTalk" podcast, which began airing in June 2009. Audio recordings of the "StarTalk" TV program have since aired as podcast episodes. Both the TV talk show and podcast versions of "StarTalk" are hosted by Tyson and feature one-on-one interviews about science and technology with guests from the worlds of pop culture, news, and politics. Richard Dawkins, George Takei, Norman Lear, President Jimmy Carter, Christopher Nolan, and David Crosby have guested on the show. President Bill Clinton was the first guest for "StarTalk" Season 2. more >>
