Coffee!! So why can we domesticate some animals but not most of them?

Here’s an idea presented at YouTube that got kicked around at an ID-friendly online chips n’ gravy fest:

The animal must be able to breed in captivity and must have a social structure in which a human can substitute for an animal. Domesticable animals are rare simply because the combination of necessary features is rare. A human can become the leader of a herd or pack.

Note: Domestic cats, like Tom, Dick and Harry (UD editorial assistants) are not herd or pack animals; However, handled by humans early enough, cats tend to put the human in the role of Mommy Cat. That is, they never really grow up. But that hardly matters if they have found a human who will cater to their needs and neuroses. ItΒ is why cats are so numerous on every continent.

    Drinking coffee could lead to a longer life, scientist says

    Whether it’s caffeinated or decaffeinated, coffee is associated with lower mortality, which suggests the association is not tied to caffeine

    Encouraging news for those who look for extending their lives in this world a little longer.

    Since I don’t drink coffee, it has no effect on me. πŸ™‚

    Better keep this in mind:

    Matthew 16:25
    For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

    Mark 8:35
    For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.

    Luke 9:24
    For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
