 Today's quote: Clarke

"The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion. However valuable - even necessary - that may have been in enforcing good behavior on primitive peoples, their association is now counterproductive. Yet at the very moment when they should be decoupled, sanctimonious nitwits are calling for a return to morals based on superstition."
~ Arthur C. Clarke, "Arthur C. Clarke's 'Credo'", Skeptical Inquirer (Vol 25, No. 5, Sept/Oct 2001, pp 61-63)

Love your site...read it daily. But one small critique. The format is hard to read...hard on the eyes blue font on black. I struggle with my middle age eyes to absorb the wisdom here.

Thanks for the kind words and the feedback.

May I ask what browser you are using (that is, Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox, etc) and what version (click HELP > ABOUT...)?

Also, do you know the screen resolution of your monitor? (If you are using a Windows operating system, for example, right-click on your desktop and go to PROPERTIES. Then click on the "Settings" tab.)

Finally, do you know what size your monitor is? For example, 13", 17"?

This information will help me diagnose why the font appears so tiny on your monitor (it does not always appear so...).

Thanks again.

NV -- I think Joan is talking only about the colours -- she didn't mention the size at all.

Personally I really like the colour scheme, and my eyes are at least approaching middle age.

Incidentally, that's a brilliant quote. Thanks for posting it.
