The OLD Philosopher: Roman Catholicism and Pope Francis I: Quo Vadis?

On the basis of less than six months, almost no interested and informed observers of Francis I would consider him to be very similar to Benedict XVI, John Paul II, or Paul VI. If anything, we may be observing another John XXIII in the making.

The OLD Philosopher - Drones: The Newest Worst Weapon of Our Time

Long ago, which is to say 50+ years ago or so, a drone was a male bee which hung around the hive for a while and didn’t do much. Then he had the decency to die off, along with all the other drones, in a kind of mass suicide pact. Apparently it is an apiary necessity. Later, drones became pilot-less planes operated by radio signals which the Air Force or Navy shot down with piloted planes or guides missiles to practice their technological marksmanship...

The OLD Philosopher - The Most Dangerous Enemy of Israel

There is an enormous problem with a one-state solution. If it were constituted immediately inside any proposed set of borders, there would be almost as many Palestinians as there are Jews. Furthermore, because of a much higher birthrate among Palestinians, very soon there would be more Palestinians in this newly formed nation. So the question naturally arises, would such a state be a Jewish nation, or would it be a secular democracy in which Jews, Muslims, Christians, and secular citizens all have equal status? And if there were more Muslims than Jews, would Muslims control the government? And because Israel was established precisely because it was to be a Jewish state, how could it be Jewish with a minority of Jews living within its borders? In 2013, what does it mean that Israel exists as a Jewish state?
