Yep. It's about -2°C with a dusting of snow on the ground.

Yeah, they hunt during the day but at night they prowl for the ladies! And that's when Mod pounces having lured them in in his female owl disguise. It's grim up north.

Sounds like he's grim down south, too.

Question #8

It is rare for people to question my indomitable will without consequence. This time it will be merely a distant cousin:- one of those short-eared specimens that prowl around here at night - that suffers at my wrath.


From AdminModulous' link re: Short-eared owls:
quote:
Short-eared owls are medium sized owls with mottled brown bodies, pale under-wings and yellow eyes. They are commonly seen hunting during the day.

Tsk.


Should I take this personally, bird-wise?

Re: Question 6
Oh sure sure, they hunt during the day. They need their energy for their Richard Ramirez like activities during the night. I actually got dive bombed by one of those suckers first thing in the morning...no doubt it was on its way back from some ill-gotten prowling.

But seriously, whoops.

Being omnivorous, I take everything personally, and you probably should, too.

:p

Re: Question #7

At any given moment, try clicking on All Topics for a list of current discussions. Take the top 20 topics and determine how many of them have something to do with evolution v. creationism. Quite often you will find that none of the top-20 topics have anything at all to do with EvC. The vast majority of them will be about religious nonsense. But I don't care about religious nonsense. I care about scientific nonsense. So my question #7 is: Why do the Admins promote so much religious nonsense when there is plenty of scientific nonsense to discuss? Maybe this forum should be renamed "GvU": God v. Unbelievers. IMO, the true believers are nothing but sacks of lead shot in our bright ballon of reason—the one still trying to get off the ground.

Perhaps it has a lot to do with the contention of Admin and others that there is no Biblical ID creation science.

And how could there be? True believership and scientific objectivism are at opposite ends of the intellectual stick. I've never met a true believer who could see over the wall of blind faith.

Re: Question #7
Biblical ID creation science.

that is an oxy-oxy-oxy-moron

I've never met a true believer who could see over the wall of blind faith.

I agree
