On value and money, molecules activism
As a component of his
Dr. Love has
started a blog,
founded a molecules archive.
Recently, he has written about his motivation for doing so, in terms that many Mormons
might understand. He writes, "Molecules activism could be viewed as the promotion of uncommon knowledge of commonplace things. The aspirin, the parsley, citrus fruits, all of which are commonplace things, readily in view and at hand. They all have little known properties...".

On the loss of US credibility: conscription, death penalty
As part of a recent GNU-Darwin action, Dr. Love gives his latest follow up on anti-war action, following on his previous essays regarding the subject, listed below. Of particular interest to many Radical Mormons will be his take on the death penalty. Should there be a death penalty moratorium during times when the moral credibility of the government itself is low? According to Dr. Love, we are living in such a time.
Follow-up Editorial Feature
The stupid war against terrorism
This is the stupidest war that I have ever seen. US aggression against so-called terrorists has led predictably to bad results, and we should take all necessary action to stop the war now: It is a stupid, stupid war.
Bootstrapping your body towards maximum life span
The scene was 1968 and the country was mired in war, but many were disengaging from US society and protesting the war. At this time, there was a fellow named Timothy Leary, who became famous because he got kicked out of Harvard for his research. Leary predicted that genetic science would unlock the door to life extension, and that has now happened. Caloric restriction is obviously beneficial, since the life span is extended to an age of about 150 years. Maybe we will reach the age of the patriarchs!

For those who have not yet made the trip to Nauvoo, there is a wonderful walk-through essay with pictures at Meridian Magazine. The Nauvoo Temple site has some excellent links and pictures, and the Nauvoo Temple Cam at Deseret Books is HOT.

A note from
My main computer has been in storage for two months due to our move
to Ithaca, New York. As a consequence, The Radical has
gone untended for quite some time. Everything keeps working though,
thanks to Tripod and ArsDigita, and the votes are still rolling in.
We hope to be well settled into our new venue soon. In the meantime,
I have prepared some quick links for you. There are alot of critical
radical mormon happenings right now. Mormonism is being redefined.
If you don't participate in that process, then you will be defined by your
peers. Check it out.

Center is a watershed
The Church has some high quality images of the Conference Center here,
We are in a new world. Events like this conference, and the Palmyra
Temple narrowcast are evidence that the Church is in the thick of the
great change that is overtaking us. Much was made of this point in conference,
both for and against. Were your ears open? Where do you stand? Should we
be talking about corporatization or a stone cut without hands? Either way,
it fills the world. In Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert Heinlein
called this type of situation a "moment of crux". More comments and stories
