A little while ago, I blogged about Bill Nye’s nonsensical comments on creationism. Well, it appears that he has been making even more foolish and ill-informed comments on the subject of attempting to ban creationism from education.
An article on MSNBC reported on the January 2012 issue of Journal of Research in Science Teaching, where new research suggests that the acceptance of evolution comes down to a gut feeling.
It is a mark of respect, ironically, to be singled out by your adversary. I was surprised and a little tickled to find that PZ Myers had written a blog entitled “Also, the sharks are smarter than Eric Hovind.” Mr. Myers was apparently not impressed with the blog I wrote last week on the hybrid sharks found off the coast of Australia. You see, some scientists suggested that this hybrid shark was excellent proof for evolution; I simply pointed out that going from a shark to a shark is not evolution. True evolution would require so much more, like changing from a shark to a dog. However, Mr. Myers was quick to express his excitement over the shark discovery, saying, “This is an excellent example of evolution.”
It all started on Facebook …
Last night I watched a show from Nova on PBS called “What Darwin Never Knew.“ It went into the life of Darwin and what he did not know even though he came up with this “amazing theory of evolution.” While I enjoyed the videography of the film, the script was, if I can use my British partner’s term, “total rubbish.” Pushing evolution every chance they had, it just made me angry how many people are getting indoctrinated with the ideas of evolution. The show went into how modern-day genetics has found undiscovered switches that are able to turn genes on and off. Then they jumped to the total illogical conclusion that these “switches” are responsible for the evolutionary history of man from fish. Don’t get me wrong: what genetics is producing these days is absolutely amazing. The fact that we can go into the genome and find out what genes are responsible for what character traits is absolutely fascinating. Finding out which genes are turned off that really should be turned on to take away a mutation is very exciting. For someone who loves science and loves building, the idea of engineering biological life is fascinating, to say the least.
My son was watching Dora the explorer this morning and they went to fairytale land. The magic words you had to say to get there were “once upon a time.” Once inside fairytale land, just about anything can happen. Poor Boots ate the banana from the Wicked Witch and fell fast asleep. The only way to wake up sleeping Boots was to have a princess give him a hug.
Q: My Biology textbook says the first simple life-forms were single-celled ones in the Cambrian layers? What is that all about?
