    Two notebooks written by Darwin have been returned to Cambridge University. This made me very happy too as I have the “tree of life” sketch tattooed on my arm.

    Understanding reality is not a battle between reason and faith.

    Scientists have found that the mass of a sub-atomic particle is not what it should be and this could re-write the Standard Model.

    The World isn’t scared of GMOs anymore.

    Where do theories come from?

    Long Reads: Evidence in science-based medicine. Why Darwin-hating Christians are hunting for a “living dinosaur” in the Congo. Book banning in the red-state education wars.

    @robertGee…I wonder if they were stolen by a xtian?

    Quite possible. Upon reading them over the years he became an atheist and then with his improved sense of morality…..returned them 🙂

    Reg,

    Do you make additions to your Tree of Life tattoo as new species or life forms are discovered? That would be a sign of real dedication to both science and tattoo art. 😁

    Glad to read that the 15 minutes of huckle-buck about GMOs is about over.

    One piece of Woo that I notice that cropped up during the COVID-19 Endemic was Purell labeled it’s sanitizer as “Made With Plant-Based Alcohol.”

    Now, unless Ethyl an Isopropyl Alcohol molecules are being formed in comet’s tails, I thought all Alcohol was plant-based (Ethyl from grains and fruit and Isopropyl from trees.)

    @Enco – I thought all Alcohol was plant-based. Reminds me of someone who once said that she only eats natural food as it only has natural chemicals. Would you eat Organic chemicals? I asked. “Yes, but only the natural ones, obviously”! “Oh, and I would never kill any animals, not even a fly”. What about head lice? I asked with a straight face.

    I keep traces of all DNA in the tattoo instead 🙂 Picture.

    Reg,

    Well, that does make sense, since DNA is in all life forms and it’s all made of star-stuff and all subject to change. Plus, it is more compact, so points for style. Two Opposable Thumbs Up.👍👍

    Reg,

    Millennials and Gen Z are indeed the least religious…but not out of 5he forest by any means. To receive innoculation from Wokeism, they need a secure basement or attic, spare chargers and batteries for all devices, a case of Hot Pockets, Avocado Toast, and Starbucks, and a non-stop Netflix-and-Chill sesh of The Entire Monty Python Cannon and Prequels and Spin-Offs, a Tubi.tv-and-Chill sesh of The Dean Martin Celbrity Roast and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, to permanently break the spell of canel and call-out culture. Then, a Disney+-and-Chill sesh of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Legacy Movies and Cartoons, so they learn that it’s ultimately super-ability and character that wins the day, not box-checking Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE.)

    @Enco ” and it’s all made of star-stuff...”

    Got that covered too 🙂

    9 years ago??  Reminds me again of W.C. Fields…”I once spent a year in Philadelphia, I think it was on a Sunday”.

    @Enco – you sure you mean “Wokeism”? Reads like you are describing “Snowflakes”.

    Reg,

    That does cover it well.

    Myeelf, I’ll use temporary tattoo pens and media for body decoration, in case I can have a body that can freeze or preserve long enough for “The Big Crunch.” 🌌

    “Snowflakes” are among the target market for Wokeism, so getting that trait out of their system is key.

    Other activities can include hackey-sack with a bean-bag Herbert Marcuse, bathroom breaks in single-stall unisex bathrooms to get them alone with their thoughts (“To sit down and constipate” as Benny Hill would say,) and outdoor Sunshine Breaks accompanied with a speech from Louis Brandeis on the subject.

    Deprogamming should be fun! 😁

    Enco, you write:

    To receive innoculation from Wokeism…How can you be innoculated from your ideology?

    Encoclusions: so they learn that it’s ultimately super-ability and character that wins the day, not box-checking Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE.)

    No chance you will be infected with cognitive dissonance. You won’t even contemplate a human world that is extrinsic to your ideological fantasies.

    Why do you keep dragging me in? I can’t even get by the trick laws!
