How did a mammoth tusk from well over 100,000 years ago end up deep in the ocean?

Whatever happened, the find shows that a fully terrestrial mammal can get buried in ocean sediment.

How do we know that some of these fossils had anything to do with the ocean. No doubt the ocean holds more secrets.

In time for American Thanksgiving: Stephen Meyer on “the frailty of scientific atheism”

Materialist atheism is — you read it here first — slowly being destroyed by panpsychism. Panpsychism (everything is conscious) makes more sense.

But if your hypothesis is that the human mind is an illusion, then… you don’t have a hypothesis. That’s slowly killing “scientific” atheism.
