INTERNATIONAL : US military steps up a gear

27 September 2007

THE FACT that the sixth anniversary of the September 11 attacks against New York's World Trade Centre and General David Petraeus's testimony to the US Congress coincided serves as a reminder of President George W Bush's attempts to cast the American invasion and occupation of Iraq as part of the larger war on terror, a logical and supposedly unavoidable step to prevent the next 9/11 or avenge the last.

Cearrbhachas in Éirinn

27 September 2007

An tseachtain seo caite, d'fhógair Oisín McConville, duine de na peileadóirí is fearr in Eirinn (cé nach as Contae an Dúin é!) go raibh sé gafa le cearrbhachas. Scrios cearrbhachas a shaol, bhí sé i bhfiacha agus bhí sé faoi dhúlagar. Ag caint leis an BBC roimh sheoladh a leabhair úir The Gambler dúirt sé gur chúis a bhí ann nach raibh aon neart aige air.

The Matt Treacy Column

27 September 2007

BISHOP BERKELEY devised the famous philosophical dictum "Esse est percipi" - "To be is to be perceived" - which basically states that one can only be aware of what one actually sees. Which, in turn, leads to the interesting conundrum regarding whether something then exists if nobody sees it. And this, in turn, is one of the arguments for the existence of God as the all-seeing perceiver. Because if there was no God to see everything then things would not exist. Very clever. Free article
