Probably right now.  Humans are currently causing a mass extinction by their activities.

Kumana Wanalaia: badhatharry: Natural selection is a scientific fact.
Evolution is a scientific theory.

/just sayin'

Actually, no, evolution has been observed in nature. A sample of e coli, iirc, was observed to evolve the ability to metabolize cyanide. There are sample of the strain every so many generations along, and the evolutionary even has been reproduced from earlier samples.


The creationist counter-argument is that the E. Coli bacteria already possessed the ability to metabolize cyanide (or nylon, or citric acid, depending on the strain in question) but that the ability was not expressed. The fact that the claim is demonstrably false, as member organisms of the strain from generations before the trait emerged prove, is irrelevant to the creationists, because creationists are notoriously dishonest.

The audio is fine when viewed from the Louisville Fox affiliate.

I predict that FOXNEWS will put out an 8 part 'documentary series' on how America was created.  Narrated by Mike Huckabee. this will air oh in say 2 months.  to be fair and balanced of course.

/just sayin'


img1.fark.net Benchmark SC.3.N.3.1: Recognize that words in science can have different or more specific meanings than their use in everyday language; for example, energy, cell, heat/cold, and evidence.
img1.fark.net Benchmark SC.6.N.3.1: Recognize and explain that a scientific theory is a well-supported and widely accepted explanation of nature and is not simply a claim posed by an individual. Thus, the use of the term theory in science is very different than how it is used in everyday life.
img1.fark.net Benchmark SC.912.N.3.1: Explain that a scientific theory is the culmination of many scientific investigations drawing together all the current evidence concerning a substantial range of phenomena; thus, a scientific theory represents the most powerful explanation scientists have to offer.

Waldo Pepper: Is this show intended to be for grade schoolers?


More or less.  Its designed to bring basic sweeping concepts to people who have never learned science, and bring it with a sense of wonder and curiosity.
 
2014-03-16 09:54:32 PM  
I'm a well read 49 year old woman who's always had an interest in science and history and I'm really enjoying this show, thank you very much! I'll always be a kid at heart.

/my Warrior's brains and intellect turn me on as much as his physical attributes (he blushes when I tell him that), and I have to say that NdT is giving me a few delicious chiils right now......

OK, I am hearing the US Farkers complaining about some of the commercials.  Any Canadian (specifically Ontario) Farkers getting a LOT of political ads with this?
 
2014-03-16 09:54:56 PM  
Clearly we need an Exxon expedition to Titan.

Dammit NDT. Don't give people ideas for strip mining Titan. 

Or do so NASA gets a boost.

Oh oh, Titan has OIL.

We need send and expeditionary force over there NOW!
 
2014-03-16 09:57:14 PM  
"All the oil and natural gas on Earth is just a tiny fraction of what's on Titan."

And in other news today, the United States has declared war on the moon of Titan,

Been getting a fair few out here in Halifax. They had a couple per break at the start, but it seems to have mercifully diminished.

Titan is stockpiling WMD's. We need to do something about it.

Once again, an evolutionist exposes his anti-Christian bias.
