Welcome back, it’s been a while. Today marks a change in the direction of MattJWaller.com due to the fact that I’m at University. The content of the site will now start to veer away from the traditional political and economic analysis that you have all become accustomed to reading as this sort of thought will now be channeled into my University work. Instead, you will be delighted to find that I am now focusing on useful tips and observances that I’ve come across in my…Continue Reading “Foodiversity – Cookies with Dietary Requirements”

Insights arising from the atomic theory of matter By Luke Kristopher Davis (Last article) The theory does not coincide with everyday experience    Take a few seconds to look around your present environment; the laptop or PC in front of you, the grass or buildings outside your window, the objects that sit on your table and the body that is you. You can touch the table and it feels quite smooth. Nothing from this experience tells you that matter itself consists of small units called…Continue Reading “Insights arising from the atomic theory of matter”

The Facebook interview: Nat Eguchi by Luke Kristopher Davis     Louis and Nat Eguchi have had their Ipod application featured in the Banbury Guardian. I am curious about their success and how Nat has built up a curiosity for computer science.  We also discuss other issues that we find important in our lives. (Luke is in Italics) What do you think of your recent success on your app? it’s just proof that a simple app, with very modest marketing can achieve world wide reach in…Continue Reading “A Facebook interview with: Nat Eguchi”

Our brain and central nervous system by Luke Kristopher Davis An introduction     As you follow the evolutionary history of life on earth you will see that organisms grow in their complexity and efficiency. This complexity is a consequence of minute alterations to DNA which result in complex organs, this alteration is a result of natural selection. Natural selection is a process which sieves out genes that  are no longer useful, are faulty or another gene for a similar function is a much more adapted…Continue Reading “An exploration into: Our brain and central nervous system”

Firstly, I think my colleague’s article deserves a lot of respect and appreciation as it is well written and well argued. Though his article and some of the conclusions drawn are in-valid and some are based on misunderstanding. 1) The graph in his article is a sketch, that is, it is not based on collected data. The curve representing the gradual increase in scientific knowledge is too simplified, it does not represent the true nature of science. The progress of science is chaotic and does…Continue Reading “In reply to ‘The case for Religion’”

The last few articles by my fellow writer Luke Davis have attracted a lot of attention through his staunch attack on religion and what he seems to imply is the opposite of “reason”. While I can see the logic in many of the points he makes, I find it hard to agree that the voices of logic, reason and science are, without question, the least harmful to the human race and that religion should be ignored. The argument is used by what I ironically call…Continue Reading “The Case For Religion”

“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.” – Albert Einstein In the ancient battle between science and religion, evidence versus revelation and reason versus faith, many intellectuals and writers may have not explicitly highlighted who the mastermind behind religion and totalitarianism (dictatorships) really is. In this article I will introduce each position, explain its nature and effects on humans. I will also determine which position is more useful, less harmful, more productive and most importantly… which position…Continue Reading “Science vs. Fundamentalism”
