John Buck 41: BeerBear: John Buck 41: Is there gonna be a thread for this fu*king show every Sunday night?

not a fan of the show? then why post in here?

I just find it amusing there's a thread on this guy 2 or 3 times a week.


Did you see how he trolled gravity on twitter?

shanrick: I already watched this episode tomorrow.


I do post production work for 20th Century Fox and have seen the first 5 episodes. The universe ceases to exist in that episode, so drink accordingly.

Can't find it, but it was pretty hilarious.

We're already confusing enough people. No need to make it more bizarre. But it wouldn't have killed them to say "white looking fur."

My real lesson from this episode looks to be that my husband is going to be eaten by a bear one day while wandering up to it and exclaiming "Puppy!" looking to pet it.  "It's got eyes, two ears, and fur, it's a puppy."

I'm so glad he has life insurance.

There's a two-word phrase for "white looking fur."

It's "white fur".

If I evolved from trees then how come there are still trees?

This is what googles gave me. I haven't actually read it yet, because lazy.

I suspect border security might take issue if you describe your reason for entering Canada is to find a way to get one of it's citizens eaten by a bear in a tragically hilarious manner. But if I see a random bear wandering Halifax, I know to blame you lol

geom_00: And Ken Ham is now outlawing ALL dogs.


Ken Ham is fine with admitting the existence of artificial selection; most of it is recent enough to count as "observational science" in his mind.

Dimensio: I assume that the second half of the episode will be providing equal time to the Creationist (specifically, young-Earth Christian creationism) point of view.


They're probably giving it proportional time. They think the universe was created six thousand years ago instead of 13.8 billion years ago, so they'll probably get about 15 milliseconds.

I love NDTyson. "Science, biatches. It works."
 
2014-03-16 09:26:45 PM  
I have read creationist arguments that note shared genetic content between humans and bananas, phrased as though the theory of evolution does not imply that humans and bananas share common ancestry. I am pleased that Dr. Tyson explicitly addressed the common ancestry between humans and plants right away.

Creationists will, of course, ignore it and continue to use false arguments, because creationists are notoriously dishonest.

Let's not lump all religious people together.  Most of them do not have an issue with science.

And he's a big deal for STEM. He's a PhD astrophysicist who sees the importance of education and science, not the rejection of scientific theory we see argued about in the news constantly over pseudoscience and theology based theories being passed off as science.

Show was originally created by a scientist who saw the importance of public education even though he was a top adviser for NASA.

We have him, Bill Nye, and Steven Hawking as scientist who aren't afraid to go in front of the media.
