This is hilarious, though.

Look at his fossillized human gall bladder.

He's like valentin.d. Remember him? With his dinosaur skulls? Good times.

IIRC he's done a hit & run here before and Ray used to link to his stuff as well.

I miss Ray and all that Sacred Inch knowledge.

Did they lose their tails in the same catastrophe?

rant is just an opinion ...
The question is not what you think is true vs what others think is true

The question is how you test the truth of concepts, what is the paradigm, the methodology, the means others could use to vet your opinions.

Without that, all you have is opinion, and opinion alone is curiously lacking in ability to alter or measure reality.

And the bullet hole in the Neanderthal (or whatever) skull. That was funny.

I though this pic was hilarious:

You can tell its a human skull because it has a hat on (duh!)

Where do these people come from???

Whoever calls me ignorant shares my own opinion. Sorrowfully and tacitly I recognize my ignorance, when I consider how much I lack of what my mind in its craving for knowledge is sighing for... I console myself with the consideration that this belongs to our common nature. - Francesco Petrarca

"Nothing is easier than to persuade people who want to be persuaded and already believe." - another Petrarca gem.

Ignorance is a most formidable opponent rivaled only by arrogance; but when the two join forces, one is all but invincible.

A number of years ago, at our statewide archaeological meetings, a gentleman showed up and set up a table to show us all his ancient rock carvings. Perhaps 300 archaeologists looked at the rocks, and they were all natural.

But this fellow wasn't phased by that. It wasn't long before he started making a bunch of exciting new finds--out in front of the hotel among the ornamental landscaping rocks.

The really funny thing is, about ten years later we had a different fellow show up at the meeting doing the exact same thing!

I wonder if....

Hmmmm.
