Stupid science. Dumb wingnuts. Perfect fit.

right. the hoy-faloy elitist darwinists are so smart they can't even come up with an adequate explanation as to why the theory of evolution doan jive with the laws of probability.

 

that's stupid. :P

They aren't elitists, just scientists. And there was no problem

with the subject of the laws of probability and evolution.

So you believe that some mystical creature is a more adequate explanation than evolution?    :blink:

Wild Monkeys’ Stone “Tools” Force a Rethink of Human Uniqueness

The monkey picks up a potato-sized rock in his tiny hands, raises it above his head and smashes it down with all his might on another stone embedded in the ground. As the creature enthusiastically bashes away, over and over, flakes fly off the rock he is wielding.

 

They are sharp enough to cut meat or plant material. The monkey does not pay much attention to the flakes, save to place one on the embedded rock and attempt to smash it, too. But he has unintentionally produced artifacts that look for all the world like stone tools found at some human archaeological sites.

 

***************************************************************

Just being a monkey, and fooling all the archaeologists at the same time.

 

 

Birds are known to use tools.

It baffles scientist how octopus can be so intelligent  at problem solving.  True wonder of nature.

RIP, Schiaparelli: European Mars Lander's Crash Site Seen By NASA Probe

Europe's ExoMars lander apparently crashed on the Red Planet, and an orbiting NASA spacecraft has spotted its grave, European Space Agency (ESA) officials said.

 

The lander, named Schiaparelli, stopped communicating with mission control about 1 minute before its planned touchdown on Mars Wednesday morning (Oct. 19). Newly released photos of the landing site by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) seem to confirm what ExoMars team members had suspected — that Schiaparelli died a violent death.

**** Habilis May Have Been Right Handed

 

LAWRENCE, KANSAS—HealthDay News reports that University of Kansas professor emeritus David Frayer has found evidence of right-handedness in a **** habilis specimen.

 

He and his team conducted experiments to re-create scratch marks similar to the ones found on 1.8-million-year-old **** habilis teeth found in Tanzania. Most of the marks, located on the lip side of the specimen’s upper front teeth, veer from the left down to the right.

 

************************************************

Next they will try to figure out what side they parted their hair on.

Can't believe the website word filter won't allow scientific names/terms to be presented. :angry:

 

Guess we can't offend them. :blink:

 

So if I am!!!

Professor’s nonsense paper written by autocomplete accepted for Atlanta academic conference

A New Zealand technology professor has been invited to share a gibberish research paper — which he wrote entirely through Apple’s iOs autocomplete — at an American conference next month.

 

“I started a sentence with ‘Atomic’ or ‘Nuclear’ and then randomly hit the autocomplete suggestions,” Christoph Bartneck, an associate professor the University of Canterbury's Human Interface Technology laboratory, wrote in a blog post Thursday about his surprise acceptance.

 

“The text really does not make any sense,” he wrote.

 

********************************************************

A lot of things don't make sense, but your acceptance to the conference does, lol.

Sloths Officially Deemed the Slowest Mammals on Earth

With sloths’ relaxed and tardy nature, it seems fitting that news of the mammal’s recent achievement is spreading a day after International Sloth Day.

 

According to the Scientific American, research has proved that sloths officially have the slowest metabolism of any animal on Earth.

 

This impressive title was bestowed upon the animal after a seven-year study of three-toed sloths by scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

 

***********************************************************

I could think of some political posters who are slower but never mind, if they came up with this after seven years the scientists deserve to be listed as a close second.

faith does not subject itself to the vagueness of science but science does.

 

the laws of probability are not theological.

 

contention: the evolutionary process began in a prehistoric ocean 4+ billion years ago by a random coming together of non-living components.

 

fact: scientists have not been able to recreate it in the laboratory.

 

conclusion: theory of evolution remains unproven by failure to bring about evidentiary confirmation.

 

end of epoch.

:D

Slippery slope: Study finds little lies lead to bigger ones

 

WASHINGTON — Telling little fibs leads down a slippery slope to bigger lies — and our brains adapt to escalating dishonesty, which makes deceit easier, a new study shows.

 

Neuroscientists at the University College London’s Affective Brain Lab put 80 people in scenarios where they could repeatedly lie and get paid more based on the magnitude of their lies. They said they were the first to demonstrate empirically that people’s lies grow bolder the more they fib.

 

*********************************************************

That sounds exactly like what happened with global warming. The lie started out small and then turned into a massive financial scam. Too bad they didn't study how to stop it, lol.

Funny but to you 'that sounds exactly like what happened with global warming',  while to me 'that' is the major reason so many people believe in religion\myths.

One could trust climate scientists or one could trust a clueless

wingnut who repeats the same old false arguments about money

and "scams." Gee, this is a tough one.

Elon Musk just shared his ambitious 4-step plan for colonizing Mars with a million people

Elon Musk wants to launch a million people to Mars in the event some apocalyptic disaster eventually ruins Earth. And he wants it to be somewhat affordable — $200,000 or less per person.

 

To that end the SpaceX CEO outlined his plan to colonize Mars on September 27, including how his Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) of rockets, spaceships, fuel pods, and other crucial components would get the job done. Still, the full presentation at the International Astronomical Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico, barely scratched the surface.

 

********************************************************

Has anyone told this guy there isn't enough oxygen to breath on Mars yet? Nothing is going to be affordable there.

here's a real stupid science question...

 

would it be theoretically possible by some means to amplify the growth potential of the human female pituitary gland and cause a normal-sized babe to become a 50 foot giantess?...

 

like allison hayes? :D

... or as we call it in the States, Election Day. Why does Elon Musk sound like he should be running a deodorant company?
