I can't remember the month that this was for - perhaps it is the most recent out. It has a great article about Evolution and the science behind it.

I recommend this for anyone who wants to read a little more from a source that most people generally trust.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Boy, are you lazy. This is a heck of a way to start off this forum. What an example you're setting for the others! &c.

Have you read the recent Wired cover story on this? I just did! Anyway, if you haven't I will link you to the internet version since CRZ has set such a fine example for me, one of his many children.

    The notion that Earth orbits around the sun rather than vice versa, offered by Copernicus in 1543, is a theory. Continental drift is a theory. The existence, structure, and dynamics of atoms? Atomic theory. Even electricity is a theoretical construct, involving electrons, which are tiny units of charged mass that no one has ever seen. Each of these theories is an explanation that has been confirmed to such a degree, by observation and experiment, that knowledgeable experts accept it as fact. That's what scientists mean when they talk about a theory: not a dreamy and unreliable speculation, but an explanatory statement that fits the evidence. They embrace such an explanation confidently but provisionallytaking it as their best available view of reality, at least until some severely conflicting data or some better explanation might come along.

This is a good paragraph, and makes plenty of sense.

But it is truly sad that after hundreds of years of scientific advances, 45% of Americans still believe we were created by God at some point in the last 10,000 years.

That belief provides comfort and is alot less scary than the alternatives. I say this as a Christian who believes that Evolution Theory and God are in no way mutually exclusive.

Granted, I was kinda wasted last night, but I thought it was Wolverine. They look alike... with the hair and the claws and what not. Maybe I did misread the shit, but Loeb is such a terrible hack now, who knows what the hell happened anymore.
