If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Edvard Grieg 1843 – 1907

There are few pieces of music that are more instantly recognisable than 'Morning Mood' and 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' from Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite. But everything in the two complete orchestral suites from which they derive is equally stunning and in this all new recording by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sebastian Lang-Lessing they are coupled with the equally-popular Holberg Suite and the beautiful
Wedding Day at Troldhaugen -- composed in honour of the Norwegian composer's jubilee wedding anniversary. For the novice there is no better introduction to classical music, and for the old hand these dynamic performances reveal new insights into this timeless music.
