Theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss explains his main gripe with organized religion: "It implies things about the real world that are just not true."
The universe is going to keep going with or without us. All we can control is how much we learn and explore.
Maintaining a positive perspective will afford you the ideas and versatility necessary for overcoming life's biggest challenges, explains The Amazing Kreskin.

Our "follow your dreams" culture encourages us to listen to our gut, while society demands practicality. But what does that mean for artists?
No more pens wiggling across a piece of paper when an earthquake hits. These days, scientists are using “4-D seismology” to create a dynamic record of our volatile planet.
How the “chaotic” process of plate tectonics works, and why scientists are getting better at predicting major shakeups.
From Haiti to Chile, China to California, earthquakes have dominated recent news. Is this a pattern or a fluke? And where might the next one hit?
The chances of “The Big One” hitting California in the next few decades is near 100%. The only questions are—how big, and when?
For both citizens and government, diligent preparations can make the difference between “ho-hum” and disaster.
Both countries were struck by massive earthquakes, yet the scale of tragedy in Haiti was far worse. What happened in each case, and what lessons can be learned from the comparison?
No, earthquakes aren’t caused by global warming. But popular confusion about them provides a rare opportunity for science to conduct meaningful conversations with the public.
Arthur Lerner-Lam has been through quakes, but never big ones. He wonders whether the “visceral feel” of a major shakeup should be a required part of every seismologist’s training.
