The Male-Competetive Nature of Sex in Evolution and Culture

The following is speculative and reliant on memory, not yet citing scientific references. I feel it includes significant insight, but wouldn't mind if anyone posts evidence to the contrary.

Sex's advantage/purpose in life's evolutionary processes is not yet as simply definable as, say "it enhances genetic diversity". But obviously there are several, complexly related advantages of sex in evolution that outweigh its disadvantages, on the whole. (Recall, bacteria are still evolving,…

British Muslim Ass Kissing

A story recently out talks about a mother whom was breastfeeding her child that was asked not to. Apparently she "caused an uproar" by this normal act. I want to point out that while the article headline claims that this was due to Muslims, nothing in the text shows that to be true. 

 

Britain has been in ass-kiss mode with Muslims for years,…

Man vs Zombies

From Martin S Pribble's Blog

 

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all, and thanks for joining me again in 2011, for what I hope will be another successful year of blogging. As always, your feedback is appreciated.

Anthropa: Humanism in Action

Anthropa is a concept to bring a positive and active Humanism to the fore, somewhere between UUism and Humanism, where we can celebrate our several cultures that bind and enrich us with Humanism supplanting superstition; and with hope, to provide and enlightenment charity and outreach to the community at large.

Regina Spektor "Laughing With" as Lead Single

Ok, I admit it. I have a problem. A problem which makes me completely sucked in by female, piano-brandishing musicians. Tori Amos. Fiona Apple. Regina Spektor. It's kind of my thing.



One thing about the former and later of those three songstresses, though, is that they often (especially Tori) talk about religion in their lyrics. Regina uses it more for story-telling, as that's more her lyrical style in general, while Tori uses her songs as a way to criticize religion (all of you… Continue
