Small technical point. just discovered why my system gets redirect errors on some links here. I'll just say that if anyone else runs into redirect errors, just google redirectingat and skimlinks. I researched them and I consider them safe. Not sure why this hasn't been mentioned on TA before. (Ha, if you think I'm just sounding paranoid or whacky, just ignore me!)

I think that such hostility goes well beyond the creationists' aversion to chance--although the idea that the evolution of life is governed by "random" change does seem deeply appalling to them. More unsettling--and more fundamental to their rejection of evolution--is the idea that all forms of animal life are roughly equal in their value as denizens of the planet, the idea that humans are in no way the object of "Creation," that, instead, humans are simply one more fascinating but transitory animal destined to achieve passing dominion over all of the life we know of like the dinosaurs and then to subside into extinction, forever, like 97% of all the life forms that have preceded us.

Christian fundamentalists are convinced that the entire Universe has been created as a sort of frame and context for our perceptions, to provide us with wonder and pleasure and challenges until the end of time. Talk about arrogance. They cannot give up that vision, because it undergirds their entire delusional system of belief. Surrendering that perspective, they think, would mean that life and, indeed, all of the Universe are without meaning and without purpose, which is truly horrifying to anyone who has held strongly to the supreme human-centered myth his entire life.

Doone, that was a terrific video on education. I sent it to a couple of teacher friends. Thanks

Thanks Michel. Graphene is something I'm interested in, oddly enough. Awesome article.

Hang on... I just got an email update from this group that Michel Poisson started the following discussion:
"Breakthrough in Developing Super-Material Graphene"

But the discussion's not there. What happened?
