The best sci-fi series in the history of television

Firefly

If you’re unlucky enough to share my misfortune of not having coming across this series before, then you just have to watch the 14 episodes of Firefly, which is quite possibly one of the greatest television series of all time.

Words cannot describe how good this series is. Just go watch it.

Superstition kills : Part II

Praying man let his daughter die

A US jury has found a man guilty of killing his sick 11-year-old daughter by praying for her recovery rather than seeking medical care.

The man, Dale Neumann, told a court in the state of Wisconsin he believed God could heal his daughter.

She died of a treatable disease – undiagnosed diabetes – at home in rural Wisconsin in March last year, as people surrounded her and prayed.

“If I go to the doctor, I am putting the doctor before God,” he said. “I am not believing what he said he would do.”
