Did Hawking have polio rather than ALS?whyevolutionistrue

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 19:15:10 +0000

As we all know, Stephen Hawking is a medical anomaly, for he lived for over half a century with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—a disease that usually kills you within just a few years of diagnosis. As far as I know, he had the disease for longer than any human in history. But did he really […]

A muddled thinker claims that evolution can’t explain organisms or their “strivings”whyevolutionistrue

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 18:00:07 +0000

Alternet notes that Jeremy Sherman “is a decision theorist studying how life deals with dilemmas from the origins of life to everyday and political life.” In the article below (click on the screenshot), he also shows himself to be deeply muddled about evolution. The headline is tantalizing, but the “biological mystery” that science can’t explain […]

Free speech in colleges: a new report shows that students generally favor gutting the First Amendmentwhyevolutionistrue

A report at Medium was highlighted in the New York Times article below (click on screenshot), which sent me to the original study on which both articles were based. I looked at the articles above a few days ago, but have largely forgotten what they said, so I’ll take the conclusions below from the original […]

Duck report: flying homewhyevolutionistrue

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 14:15:45 +0000

This morning, as usual, I ventured out to the pond with a tub of defrosted frozen corn and a cup of mealworms. My pair of ducks weren’t visible, but I decided to whistle for them anyway. After a few whistles, I suddenly heard a loud series of quacks, and both ducks came flying toward the pond […]

Today we have the return of Bruce Lyon, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Bruce’s notes are indented: Point Reyes National Seashore is a lovely area in the coast 30 miles north of San Francisco. I have lived in California for two decades but only recently […]

Monday: Hili dialoguewhyevolutionistrue

Well, the weekend is over, though Grania tells me that today, March 19, 2018, is a “bank holiday” in Ireland, marking St. Paddy’s Day. It’s also National Oatmeal Cookie Day, the WORST of all possible cookies. I can’t think of a cookie I’d like to eat less. Over in Poland, everyone’s celebrating Kashubian Unity Day.  […]

“Blowing Away”whyevolutionistrue

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 11:30:38 +0000

I want to start the week with a Laura Nyro song, “Blowing Away“, from her 1967 album “More Than a New Discovery”. The Fifth Dimension recorded this two years later, but I like Nyro’s version better. She was born in 1947, so the oldest she could have been when she wrote this song was twenty. […]

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 19:30:15 +0000

I’m pretty convinced that my new female duck is not Honey, the one I tended last year—along with her four ducklings. Yet it still amazes me that the new duck came to me immediately when I gave my three-note call, almost as if it had remembered. Now some readers have said that a duck’s bill […]

Andrew Sullivan reviews two books on whether Trump can be impeachedwhyevolutionistrue

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 18:30:45 +0000

In today’s New York Times, writer Andrew Sullivan reviews two books by Cass Sunstein (one authored, one edited) about whether Trump is impeachable given what we know. The verdict is “probably not.” Here are the two books, and click on the screenshot below them to read Sullivan’s take. As a highly respected Constitutional lawyer and […]

King’s College London deplatforms its own lecturer—scheduled to talk on free speech!whyevolutionistrue

Far right nativist Tommy Robinson is scheduled to speak at Speakers’ Corner in London today; his topic being free speech and the history of that famous “Corner”. The police removed him from that place about a week ago, and it’s not clear whether they’ll remove him again for talking about the very history of the […]
