Perhaps this is why the raging Woke would prefer to smash things rather than study.
Just to set the record straight, embryologist Ernst Haeckel (1834–1919) had, according to learned expert, a “philosophy of sponges.” And the title above captures part of it.
As opposed to “robust.” He says, “We really need a word for this racket: Pay me or I’ll defend ID.”
Marcos Eberlin’s new book is now available at Amazon. Digging through the files, we came across the fact that in 2017, a conference at which he was to speak had to flee Portugal for Spain.
At least, that’s the implication of the results of a maze test: How do the ETH Zurich researchers know this? They constructed a downward sloping maze with either more or less nourishment (chemoattractant) at each junction and most of it at the bottom. Each bacterium (wild Marinobacter adhaerens) had to make an individual decision at […]
Bartlett: It turns out that humans don’t just go from “incompetent” to “competent” at a given task. We develop new ways of doing things that didn’t exist before.
We hope no one facing a difficult diagnosis has to listen to someone whose basic mission in life sounds like dumping on herself instead of serving others.
This talk examines the way that many thinkers, such as the eminent British philosopher Bertrand Russell, espoused naturalism, but also contradicted themselves by implying that humans are important.
But why was that a big issue anyway? Cats fare poorly overall in this either/or thinking. They are usually relegated to being “less intelligent than dogs.” Hence the researchers’ surprise that cats can learn their names.

Does “alien hand syndrome mean that we don’t really have free will? Neurosurgeon Michael Egnor discusses
He goes through the usual potted history of life on Earth, omitting (they always do) to notice that the human mind is a quite different sort of development than, say, sexual reproduction or flight. It’s the mind that prompts us to even ask questions about ET, yet no one has any idea what consciousness even is.
Wayne Rossiter: If the first story was one a religious kid would trust because it involves a known biblical character (Joseph) and God’s miraculous work, that will affect subsequent stories about Joseph.
Sometimes an argument from Naturalism Inc. becomes too complex to follow. Here’s just such an argument: The appearance of moralizing gods in religion occurred after—and not before—the emergence of large, complex societies, according to new research. This finding upturns conventional thinking on the matter, in which moralizing gods are typically cited as a prerequisite for […]
