A resurrection of evidence

A resurrection of evidence

Imagine you are a forensic detective like the above character Dr Henry Morgan from the new TV crime show Forever. As a true sceptic, not just a cynic, you are interested in evidence. Sceptics do not go into an investigation closed to the possibility that a phenomenon might be real or that a claim might be true.

Nothing comes from nothing

Nothing comes from nothing

ANTHONY FLEW, one of the twentieth century’s most outspoken atheists, once argued that God is imaginary using the following story: Two explorers came upon a clearing in the jungle. In the clearing were growing many flowers and many weeds. One explorer says, “Some gardener must tend this plot.” The other disagrees, “There is no gardener.” So they pitch their tents and set a watch. No gardener is ever seen. . . . Yet still the believer is not convinced. “But there is a gardener, invisible, intangible, insensible to electric shocks, who comes secretly to look after the garden he loves.” At last the Sceptic despairs. “But what remains of the original assertion? Just how does what you call an invisible, intangible, eternally elusive gardener differ from an imaginary gardener or even from no gardener at all?”

Loving our family changes us within

Loving our family changes us within

For thousands of years the family unit has been understood as the foundation stone of society, a place where children are raised to take their place in society as mature, responsible adults and where healthy relationships with others are nurtured and encouraged. Often described as the "nuclear family" it was generally regarded as consisting of Dad, Mum and the children. Author Dale Kuehne describes this model for the family as inhabiting what he calls "tWorld" and it was essentially built around relationships of obligation.

Let it go to pots!

Let it go to pots!

In order to get the most out of limited resources – whether that is space, cash, water, enthusiasm or physical ability – why not consider gardening entirely in pots? It's an obvious, though underrated, solution if you're short on space, short on water or in temporary accommodation. It is even a great way to deal with a normal suburban garden in those seasons that are short on flowers. In any of the above circumstances, a few pots containing plants in full bloom can make a huge impact in the garden. Their power is far greater than the same number of plants planted directly into the garden, as the plants are raised higher than their surrounds, and 'framed' in a way only pots can do – they are quite literally put on a pedestal. The effect can be truly incredible, making an otherwise green, flowerless garden begin to sing.
