Why Evolution Is True
Why Evolution is True is a blog written by Jerry Coyne, centered on evolution and biology but also dealing with diverse topics like politics, culture, and cats.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Thank you, Jerry. This makes my day.
Oh my. I had that problem the other day 🙁
I strongly suggest you go see a doctor.
I’m laughing too hard to swallow my dinner.
My wife’s opinion of the book is basically that.
Wow, a succinct review. One that is remarkably similar to one I’d give a book that shall only be known as “UA.” However, at first I couldn’t figure out why you had posted a photo of a wild bird with a Q-Tip protruding from its rectum. Somethings take a while to reparse correctly.
A Q-Tip! I looked again and could see why you saw that.
And I thought I’d be the first to post about Q-tips.
I stared at the picture uncomprehendingly… wondering WHO in God’s name would impale a poor little birdie like that?. It took maybe 10 dreamlike seconds until the Q-tip went away.
Don’t worry, I saw that too and didn’t realize what it was until I saw the comments. =P
Julia is a Hindu now, you know. Put a lot of thought into it, I bet.
The problems with E,P,L do not stem from the actress who starred in the movie adaptation.
I am an ex-Hindu. I cant believe someone would go and take up that crap. There are all kinds of Gods..surfeit of Gods. Hell man.. there must be some God for Eating (Vinayaka a.k.a Ganesh?), Praying, Loving (Kama?)
I kind of like Ganesh. From purely an ascetic angle, of course. I was in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago, and right down town next to Caesar’s Palace there is a shrine to Ganesh. Odd place for it.
How does that horse keep making movies?
Oh sorry! (I mean – I’m sorry other horses) ha-HA!
2 out of 3 ain’t bad
Why watch something that, if each term is weighted equally, will only be 2/3 appealing? Far better to spend your time reading Bonk, which is all about sex, and very well done, too!
Adorable mutant cat with four ears
Hmm, I’m a birder so I’ll remember this behaviour before I try to sneak up on this species from behind!
Imagine: trained kingfishers zipping about giving one in the eye to every creationist…
now that would be an act of intelligent design!
It looks as if you’ve captured fresh ID/creationist research in the act of being created.
Ah, ha ha ha ha ha ha…
Yeah, it’s gotten some pretty harsh reviews. I won’t be seeing it, myself.
I don’t know if that is quite the way Pauline Kael would have put it, but an accurate review.
Revulsion the instant I saw it. Then half a second later, delight.
It’s to keep the nest clean, of course.
Birds of prey are well known for this; it’s termed “slicing” by falconers and ostringers. The distance a bird can slice is supposedly indicative of its quality – it shows stronger muscles, I supposed.
Projectile excretion as an adaptation? Nice.
A friend who puts stock in the supernatural read the book and came away with the same opinion, too, so perhaps here’s something both sides can agree on. Go figure!
I don’t get it. What the hell is that supposed to be a picture of?
The little kingfisher is answering nature’s call.
Funny shit o boy. I hit your link because I saw you sent The Trough 22 hits.
But I am the culprit who put a palable face on EPL. The book is fake, the search even more fake. I spent 35 yrs in spiritual quest. Lived in ashram in Punjab for a month, been to India twice, Italy and a lot of other places.
However, When my Indian Sikh guru died…I was free. Wrote about my experiences even though we were told not to. Someone should have given Gilbert same advice LOL.
The best thing about film was Bardem and Bali. My writing snd reality are too heavy for Hollywood so suckers have to settle for the likes of a whiny white woman, nay two Liz and Julia.
Ah, you get what you pay for.
PS I thought it was bird crap coming out of the back of the bird. The birds around here fight over the cat food on the porch. Love birds.
Heloise,,,keep it up.
