    I found these sites and while reading them I couldn't help but think of the SciFi stories that it could inspire.
    Here are some samples - Tell me what you think...

    I added them to my stumble upon blog too.
    Really interesting stuff - especially that nano-fog
    Perhaps that is where the legends of Gods, Demons, Magicians and wizards comes from.
    Jesus walked on the water...Hmmm

    i agree recall, at the start. i know it sounded funny to see that, what i typed, but info like this i having been wanting to read for quite a long time. i am so glad that we, the members of coolscifi, team up to share so much information to each other and the world that this is my only site i go to for anything to do with scifi.

    for me this is home. i left the sitel a few months ago for reasons of my own and found out shortly that i couldnt stay away. this is home to me, internet home as it is.

    to me everyone here is a friend and i neither feel stupid nor awkward posting or asking questions.

    i want to thank everyone here for bringing our world this incredible world of science, science fiction, fantasy and reality.

    I have two other sites that are non-stop fun.

    ENGINES OF CREATION - Eric Drexler
    Creating a nanotechnology world

    and

    Human Knowledge: Foundations and Limits


    Here is the prologue

    Why is there something rather than nothing? Might the world be an illusion or dream? What exists beyond the human senses? What happens after death? Does divine or supernatural agency exist? Is the future already decided?
    What is the meaning of life? What is right and wrong? Is the world good or bad? Are humans good or evil? What beings should have what rights? What should one do?
    What is truth? consciousness? intelligence? What are the limits of intelligence? Of logic? Could a machine think? Does free will exist?
    How and when did the universe begin? What happened before it began? How and when will the universe end?
    What does the universe consist of? What laws govern it? Why is the universe this way?
    How big is the universe? Does it have a center or edge? What is outside the universe? Are there other universes?
    What is life? How did life arise? What explains its complexity?
    How did mind and language arise? How does the brain work?
    Is there life and intelligence beyond earth?
    What political system works best? What economic system works best?
    Why do human individuals, groups, and sexes behave as they do?
    Why have some human societies experienced more material progress than others?
    Will humanity suffer cultural decline? economic crash? tyranny? resource depletion? overpopulation? runaway pollution? pandemic? interplanetary impact? nuclear catastrophe? nanotech plague?
    Will humanity experience divine salvation? loss of faith? paranormal abilities? alien contact? time travel? warp travel? machine or human superintelligence? immortality?
    What will happen in the next: hundred years? thousand years? million, billion, and trillion years?
