Small is beautiful

I have spent my whole working life employed by or connected to Aarhus Universitet.
I do consider it as an university with a high quality of research and studies.
However, I'm a bit worried now. Danish universities are growing in size through fusions - and I fear that it inevitable will result in a noticable decrease in quality.
My proof is the size of Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, ...


Religion and human rights

Why are we humans religious? Well, that is an easy framework for defining a meaning of life. If that is fine for you then by all means do so. However, it requires a mutual respect. I have a right to question your faith - and I have no obligation to subdue to any kind of taboo, e.g. drawing the Prophet Muhammad etc.
Any human being is more valuable than any form of god (or God, if you prefer so). Life is the most precious thing we have. Live it and stay with it.



I've just noticed that almost nine months have passed... Well, just to verify that I'm alive!
