Science
5 Voodoo Science - Robert L. Park
Auteur : Robert L. Park
Genre : Science & Nature
In a time of dazzling scientific progress, how can we separate genuine breakthroughs from the noisy gaggle of false claims? From Deepak Chopra's "quantum alternative to growing old" to unwarranted hype surrounding the International Space Station, Robert Park leads us down the back alleys of fringe science, through the gleaming corridors of Washington power and even into our evolutionary past to search out the origins of voodoo science. Along the way, he offers simple and engaging science lessons, proving that you don't have to be a scientist to spot the fraudulent science that swirls around us.
While remaining highly humorous, this hard-hitting account also tallies the cost: the billions spent on worthless therapies, the tax dollars squandered on government projects that are doomed to fail, the investors bilked by schemes that violate the most fundamental laws of nat

6 Al-Kafi - Muhammad ibn Ya'qub
Auteur : Muhammad ibn Ya'qub
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
The edition before you represents, in part, a synthesis of centuries of research and deliberation over the text of al-Kafi. More importantly, it represents a very modern effort to update this rich tradition of scholarship by addressing the needs, as we see them, of readers living in the 21st Century. In researching each tradition mentioned in this book, ITI's team has painstakingly combed through the fifteen extant commentaries and annotations on al-Kafi, all of which were written around the 17th Century. Where we found their literary analysis and exegesis to be sound and relevant to the modern reader, we simply narrated and, at most, refined their work. Where we found their work to be wanting, or more often, where they had not addressed issues that are now vital to our understanding, we endeavored to fill the void by writing our own original commentary. We believe this book to be a tes

Erasmus
13 Erasmus and Calvin on the Foolishness of God - Kirk Essary
Auteur : Kirk Essary
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
What did Paul mean when he wrote that the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom? Through close analysis of the sixteenth-century reception of Paul's discourses of folly, this book examines the role of the New Testament in the development of what Erasmus and John Calvin refer to as the “Christian philosophy.”

Erasmus and Calvin on the Foolishness of God reveals the importance of Pauline rhetoric in the development of humanist critiques of scholasticism while charting the formation of a specifically affective approach to religious epistemology and theological method. As the first book-length examination of Calvin's indebtedness to Erasmus, which also considers the participation of Bullinger, Pellikan, and Melanchthon in an Erasmian exegetical milieu, it is a case study in the complicated cross-confessional exchange of ideas in the sixteenth century. Kirk Essa

Serious
14 Serious Foolishness - Angie Austin
Auteur : Angie Austin
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
It was a really small town, but it had its own homegrown radio broadcaster. That was Larry, carrying his wooden pole with an empty tin can nailed on it (his “microphone”), a wooden chair (his “stage”), his guitar on his back, to the middle of town to “perform” daily for the locals. People would gather around to applaud and request songs, but all of Larry’s songs were alike, yelling into that tin can.
As far as the kids, for their entertainment, they had to create their own. Like driving their car on the train tracks, flying like the wind—until they met an oncoming train. And if the local sheriff got in their way, they just overpowered him and locked him up in his own jail overnight.
After moving up north to train show horses, they discovered those northern cowboys had their own unique way of enduring that brutally cold weather: they would just get drunk and th

16 The Wisdom and Foolishness of God - Christophe Chalamet & Hans-Christoph Askani
Auteur : Christophe Chalamet & Hans-Christoph Askani
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
The first two chapters of Paul’s first epistle to the Christians of Corinth, written in the fifth decade of the first century, have played a significant role in the history of Christian theology. Interpreting the central event in Christianity, namely the crucifixion of Jesus, Paul reflects on the wisdom and foolishness of God, which he opposes to the world’s wisdom. According to Paul, the “word of the cross,” which is “foolishness” to some and “scandal” to others, leads to an upheaval in one’s way of thinking. For two millenia, theology has often turned to these passages in order to sustain its reflection.<P>Many central questions emerge from Paul’s text on the meaning of a crucified Messiah, on God’s omnipotence, weakness, and suffering. This volume hopes to achieve two things by seeking to place exegetes, historians, philosophers, and theologians in conversa

Fallacies

Management
17 Fads, Fallacies and Foolishness in Medical Care Management and Policy - T R Marmor
Auteur : T R Marmor
Genre : Health & Fitness
No one misses the onslaught of claims about reforming modern medical care. How doctors should be paid, how hospitals should be paid or governed, how much patients should pay when sick in co-payments, how the quality of care could be improved, and how governments and other buyers could better control the costs of care — all find expression in the explosion of medical care conference proceedings, op-eds, news bulletins, journal articles, and books.

This collection of articles takes up a key set of what the author regards as particularly misleading fads and fashions — developments that produce a startling degree of foolishness in contemporary discussions of how to organize, deliver, finance, pay for and regulate medical care services in modern industrial democracies.

The policy fads addressed include the celebration of explicit rationing as a major cost control ins

19 Dam Foolishness - Raff Ellis
Auteur : Raff Ellis
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Dam Foolishness is a narrative that incorporates a series of short stories into a cohesive tale about life growing up in small town America. Anyone whose origins are rooted in small town America will likely recognize, or be reminded of, characters resembling those written about in this book.
The author's hometown of Carthage, New York, tucked away in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, embraces no unique or remarkable attributes that would distinguish it from thousands of such hamlets all across America. Carthage is a village that reached its maturity in the late nineteenth century. It is a place that was ignored in the post- WWII suburbanization boom, bypassed by superhighways, drained of its young for lack of opportunity, and crippled by the movement of its industry to southern climes.
It is precisely because of this history, and the continued migration of its youth, t

21 Further Foolishness: Sketches and Satires on the Follies of the Day - Stephen Leacock
Auteur : Stephen Leacock
Genre : Classics
According to Wikipedia: "Stephen Butler Leacock, (30 December 1869 – 28 March 1944) was a Canadian writer and economist... Early in his career, Leacock turned to fiction, humour, and short reports to supplement (and ultimately exceed) his regular income. His stories, first published in magazines in Canada and the United States and later in novel form, became extremely popular around the world. It was said in 1911 that more people had heard of Stephen Leacock than had heard of Canada. Also, between the years 1915 and 1925, Leacock was the most popular humourist in the English-speaking world. Humorists admire other humorists, and greatly admire other great humorists. So it was that Stephen Leacock, in Toronto, was delighted to read the fresh humor and wit of a young man in New York named Robert Benchley. Leacock opened correspondence with Benchley, encouraging him in his work and import

22 The Foolishness of God - Kim Dean May

Something is drastically wrong with man’s wisdom. It falls desperately short of the gospel and Christ-centered living, causing a subjective drift to the gods of this world such as humanism, relativism, pluralism and tolerance.

These 52 devotions can be utilized by an individual, couple, family or small group.

24 The Word of the Cross - Stan Lemke
Auteur : Stan Lemke
Genre : Christianity
Paul writes, For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God (1 Cor. 1:18, NASU).

The word of the cross is the unveiled story of the Gospel, our salvation. It speaks of Gods purpose in the cross, the power of the cross, even the plan and mystery of the cross.

The cross is seen as either Foolishness or Power foolishness by those who are perishing, those who have ignored God their entire life and yet think that they will, one day, live in His heaven. Whereas, to those who are being saved, the cross is the very power of God!

The Word of the Cross is a study of the Gospel, the good news of reconciliation with God. We begin by seeking to understand the question Why the cross? We observe as God builds a bridge of trust by demonstrating his own faithfulness through the generations, givin

Warming
26 Man-Made Global Warming? - Tom Shipley
Auteur : Tom Shipley
Genre : Engineering
I am not a climatic scientist; I am an experienced electrical engineer, drawn to study this subject by the peculiarity of the news I was observing. And it became obvious, very quickly, that something weird was going on. So I began to collect data, news, and other factual information that gradually became available. I have now assembled a wide range of proven, factual details on global warming (which became climate change when warming stopped in 1998 and temperatures began to drop), the claims and counter claims that have been published over the years, and some of my own observations arising from an engineering point of view. My purpose is to put all of the facts I have assembled in one location, for ease of observation and analysis, and to show the absolute foolishness involved. Others who also became interested have seen much of this information before, reported as individual elements o

Thomas Shipley has been endorsed by Marquis Who’s Who as a leader in his industry

During my engineering days (1950 to 1965) with General Electric Company, writing about evolving technology and industrial automation activities was extremely important. Those who could use and needed automation didn’t know anything about it, machinery equipped with the new systems was much more expensive, and labor unions in the manufacturing sector, quite strong in those days, were adamantly opposed to its use. 

For these reasons, the company gave engineers, not known to be effective communicators, formal instructions in a wide range of subjects, one of which was effective presentation (oral and written). We were taught writing skills, but the impo
