    @Fritzsch – Nice reference. The math/geometry definition of orthogonal definitely matches the cartoon image of the signs is , “upright and/or right angle”. It is my hope the image returns to the Taxonomy definition, “an orthogonal classification is one in which no item is a member of more than one group, that is, the classifications are mutually exclusive.”

    @Free or Not? I agree with your statement, “If society was oriented toward Good”, However, I ask that you keep an open mind about how that is accomplished. Christ and religion are not the only path. I agree they can be a very helpful path, I have met some wonderful Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists who are are dedicated to making the world a more peaceful and better place. I was raised by one parent who was an out atheist and the other who was an unwavering agnostic (a scientist with an open mind). The message that my siblings and I received was clear and repeated often, “Your task in life is not about getting good things, it is about doing good in the world.” For the most part we all lived up to our parent’s admonition. I will graciously accept and support your Christian path toward a “society” that is “oriented toward Good”, if you will reciprocate that generosity. From everything I have read (including the Bible) I think that is what your Christ would have wanted.

    The game is rigged. Even if the investors/sponsors lose money they still “make money” it becomes a simple tax write off and they pay less taxes on their other earning for the year. Perhaps rigged is the wrong phrase, it is more of a Golden Rule thing. Those that have the gold make the rules.

    #QuincyAdamsGhost – Acknowledging art in our world is never off topic, and I agree.

    @opspecial – I agree junk science is not science. Science as whole is never perfect and embracing that single concept with thoughtful and critical thinking is what makes it useful in STEM. At this time the best manifestation of that embrace is peer review. It is a system that helps us better understand our amazing, complex, and nuanced world/universe. Thankfully, peer review is the one tool that we have helps us discern the difference between junk and real science. In essence, it is the pulling back of the curtain and letting others examine and test how we come up with our conclusions. It is wonderful process that requires us to be accountable to others and courageous enough to face criticism, learn when we are on track, or when we are wrong. Peer reviewed science has helped us make electricity, flying, driving, and surgery, all so much safer and has saved millions of lives. When I look at the peer review data on climate change it appears to be very compelling and makes a clear case for saving many lives we. Peer reviewed science is telling us it is time to put on the seat belts and ease up on gas peddle.

    Back in the 70’s my mother had license custom plate, “ERA 101”. She would have loved this comic. May her beautiful radical soul never rest… https://www.resourceumc.org/-/media/cosrow-media/2021/09/22/08/50/wbn-june-2014.ashx?la=en&hash=AAD93B7CFEAE08CA45A85D34C54A3FBB65FA16C8
