  1. Glad to be back. I've been caught up with Facebook lately. It's quite the exciting place, unlike MySpace -- which I've largely forsaken. And man, are there ever a ton of Atheists there! Here's my page address, if you're interested: http://www.facebook.com/Rev.AtheiStar And here's my Malevolent Design fan page there: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Malevolent-Design-The-Death-of-a-Loving-God/92455203397?ref=ts Yeah, you're right. "Dishonest" just isn't dark enough to describe what they're doing here!
  2. OK, at first I thought they were just adding a intro to the piece, but again I ask: How is it legal to alter someone else's text, even if it is in the public domain? Isn't there some legal action that could be taken on this? How can they get away with calling this Darwin's OoS? They should be forced to call it the "abridged OoS" or something... I'm sure they thorughly researched the legality of their deceptive actions. They have a ton of money and access to the best in Christian lawyers! But who knows, maybe a lawsuit will be filed, nonetheless. Here's hoping that that day wil
  3. Yup! They are Liars for Christ™! In their mind, evolution is such a dangerous idea that it must be stopped -- by any means necessary! This means that anything usually thought of as immoral is ok within that particular context.
  4. Oh, of course, they knew what they did! The whole thing is a surgically precise propaganda campaign intelligently designed using lies and misinformation. He's a masterfully skilled con man, dishonet to his very core, doing whatever he can to a) spread the Christ virus and make a buttload of money. Sure, this copy is free, but that just means he can spread his message easier, and therefore his other books for sale along with it.
  5. And not just any college campuses, it's supposed to be the top 50 colleges in the country, right? I have to suspect that there won't be very many amongst them who will be swayed by Comfort's bullshit. I'm hoping so, but you never know. Does a high academic standing, over all, necessarily mean that scientific literacy is part of that? If it doesn't, those who comprise that group will be easily swayed -- and from there the infection will spread.
  6. http://www.usnews.com/blogs/god-and-country/2009/10/30/how-creationist-origin-distorts-darwin.html How Creationist 'Origin' Distorts Darwin October 30, 2009 03:41 PM ET | Dan Gilgoff | Permanent Link | Print In this post, Eugenie C. Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, critiques creationist Ray Comfort's new, antievolution version of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. The NCSE is the leading group promoting and defending the teaching of evolution in public schools. This is part of a debate in which I've asked Comfort and Scott to give me th
  7. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/beta/evolution/ten-great-advances-evolution.html Ten Great Advances in Evolution • By Carl Zimmer • Posted 10.26.09 • NOVA To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Origin of Species, here's a list—by no means exhaustive—of some of the biggest advances in evolutionary biology over the past decade. These advances include not just a better understanding of how this or that group of species first evolved, but insights into the evolutionary process itself. In some cases those insights would have given Darwin himself a pleasant jolt of surprise. Ten sign
  8. I've seen it, and it seems that half of the time they have bot flies, which are freaky, but come on! They should have just done the one about the guy that had five in his head (or something like that). Frankly, I find human parasites to be generally not very exciting (mostly worms and lice), but anymore I find vertebrate biology to be boring. Well, I've never actually watched the show on TV. I don't have cable. But after watching all the clips, it looks awesome! Only one was about the botfly that I could see.
  9. This is an awesome show: http://animal.discovery.com/videos/monsters-inside-me-sneak-peek.html
  10. Here's another MD favorite: http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/chatham/ag/SustAg/GSFgraphics/assbugCPBclose2.jpg
  11. Yeah, I've seen this one and I love it! I've posted it on my Facebook Malevolent Design page twice now. I still like watching it, though, as it's extremely well done.
  12. That's ironic because my son's name is Epic -- and he's the one that found them.
  13. I just found a good page on these guys, which are unofficially known as Florida predatory stink bugs: http://www.entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/beneficial/e_floridanus.htm
  14. Note how shriveled and dry the caterpillar corpse looks in the second picture. They are literally sucking it dry!
  15. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2009/08/protoprokaryote/ Early Life Didn’t Just Divide, It United By Brandon Keim August 19, 2009 | 2:39 pm | Categories: Biology A massive analysis of almost every bacterial genome sequenced to date suggests a new shape for the tree of life. One of its core branches appears to be a union of two other branches. Descendants of that line became the energy centers of plant and animal cells. In other words, the results of this distant union between microorganisms “allowed us to walk on the Earth,” said James Lake, a University of California
  16. Get out of my head, dude! I was wondering what triceratops steak would taste like and how many acres per animal to ranch them. I don't know, but I'm sure it'd be delicious with some A1!
  17. Yeah, me too. There's always something new and cool happening there. Contrast that with religion which is still fighting over the same old crap.
  18. Indeed, yet cool, nonetheless. I'd argue, though, that it's not really about amusement, but rather for a serious scientific breakthrough. What could prove the dinosaur/bird link so much as to devolve a bird into one?
  19. This is one of the most amazing new science vids I've seen: Check out the comments, too. It's a full on war! Creationists vs. Evolutionists, ignorant vs. the educated -- join in the fun!
  20. I like this review: Extremely hard to learn to utilize it, where it can be superior to a mouse and keyboard configuration. Don't make a mistake thinking that it will do what you "think in your head" this device is designed to pick up your body's neural impulses, and unless you program it to interpret them correctly you will hate the device. learning to control your alpha and beta brain waves is as complicated as learning to run for a first time. so take your time, and relax, it just takes time.
  21. I would think that, with training, the neural pathways would be carved deep enough to make it feel like you were actually moving your own arm. I mean, as an analogy, just look at what we do when typing! We think and our fingers move into position to strike keys. I watch myself do it all the the time -- and it still freaks me out. lol...
