Religious Books -- Not Fundamentalist!

The Fundamentalist Xtians should not be allowed to hijack the language of Christianity. They are at least as much heretics to Christianity as the Arians and Gnostics of early Christian days.

Biblical inerrancy is not possible.

The books both above and below show the limitations of language and the impossibility of Biblical Inerrancy.

How can language be misused? Using General Semantics, this book was Written to explain Nazi propaganda and still used as a textbook

Books - Popular Math, Post Enlightenment & Science

This book explains why the above books on Christian Fundamentalism are politically important in America today.

Modern Society measures risk & predicts possible futures. The book below is a higly readable history of insurance, statistics and modern financial instruments.

Compare this to religion, in which it is presumed that the perfect society was known in the past and all that is necessary to do is to return to that perfect society.

Fascinating, highly readable and fun book on modern mathematics and its limitations. If you are interested in ideas, this is your book!

This is a collection of Hofstader's Scientific American articles. Again, a very fascinationg and highly readable book, requiring no mathematical background. (Buy it used - it is one of the books that will keep disappearing.)

Older, very fascinating book on mathematical ideas. Did you know there are three kinds of infinity?

Want to see what is happening to American Labor?
Workers who work, not for the employer but for a labor contractor the employer hired to do the paperwork. No paychecks, no check stubs. A worker who works more than 40 hours gets paid by a different labor contractor (at the same address as the original one) and at the same hourly rate.

The work is dangerous, but there is no training and no safety equipment. Not even a hard hat. The workers are demolishing a building with asbestos in it, which should be done by especially trained and equipped workers.

This is the story from the Village Voice.

Nah, we don't need no unions. The employers will take care of their workers.

Yeah, Right.

Not if it costs them a dime. They are drawing the big bucks that the Bushites claim shouldn't be taxed so heavily, and the work should not be inspected by OSHA and should not be unionized.
