Science without religion

I believe that Albert Einstein was right about religion, as in the quote below. The question one can ask is: Have we missed something here?

The fastest supercars

The ten fastest supercars in the world! Wonderful designed, yes, but I would rather like to drive them insted of only looking at them.

The otel wiev photo

Video - Music high-school, Piteå
I took the photo below from the city Hotel in the nearby town Piteå. My wife and I use to stay there when  she practice at the vocal ensemble on the music high-school in Piteå.
The hotel dates from the 19th century, and it has atmosphere. A lot of if actually!
The wooden church on the photo is also more than houndred years old.
The old hotel has become our favourit, not only because of that the Music high-school are paying for most of our visit. -Period!

Hobbit and the death

               
I tried to get my wife with me  on the film Hobbit.
"But it is just a bunch of people running back and forth, and so there is  forefathers with beards," she said.
I can hardly provide a more accurate review myself, but I like the story, so I have to go alone and share site with hobbits  and elves.
And what is Hobbit about?
" The Death!" said Tolkien, who had seen all his friends killed in WWI's trenches. But, there is a hope beyond this. The story doesn't stop in a trench somewhere.

Newtown tragedy

I don't think there is any word for tragedies like the one in Newtown, Connecticut. But I hope it Can led to less weapons out there on the streets.

Hobbit and the Death

It was in the WWI trenches that J.R.R Tolkien created what later became "Hobbit!" - A mythological world beyond this world of death.
"There is another world" he said to his friend C.S Lewis. I agree to that.

A Christmas Carol Photo

The old house with it's cafe' in a small antique environment with old lamps makes me think about Charles Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" story. For one, living in northern Scandinavia, snow is compared with the feeling of Christmas.
At the coffee shop we ate saffran spiced Buns; buns with cream.
