They're still looking for that rabbit aren't they?

Re: New Evolutionary paradigms possible?
Maybe even intelligent plants.

Edited by Tanypteryx, 12-02-2018 11:28 AM: spelling

You forget how to spell "ok"?

Re: Another new Cambrian Fossil Discovery

Dozens of these species have never been seen before.

Well, duh. They've been buried in rock for 518 million years.

quote:
there is over fifty percent entirely new taxa of animals and algae that are previously unknown to science

Oh, god. The number of missing transitionals just got a whole lot bigger.

Another view of the Qingjiang Biota.

quote:
“These fossils help us to piece together the steps that evolution took as animals evolved from whatever squishy blob represents their common ancestor to the rich diversity of lineages alive today,” he added. “Because some of the preserved organisms are much simpler than their living relatives, they help us to tease apart how complex organs such as brains could be assembled through blind evolutionary processes.”

...

Another surprise, Daley said, was the sheer number of comb jellies found at the site. These carnivorous marine creatures are one of the most primitive on the tree of life, and studying them could help scientists retrace some of the first steps in animal evolution. In an article accompanying the study, she calls the new fossils “stunning”.


Apparently a massive underwater mud slide buried an entire ecosystem in the most complete detail. Not just the individual organisms but their ecological inter-connections.

PBS Space Time. If anyone hasn't seen this guy let me introduce you to Matt.

The production values are exceptional. Yes, of course it's all free.

The whole series treats cosmology, astrophysics, QFT, GR and on in the reality we see.

Exceptional accuracy of facts and the leading analysis. This is the state of our knowledge in these subjects from black holes, thermodynamics, in depth cosmology, most wonderful depth of CMB.

The ideology is not neutral, it is science.

If anyone's interested in this stuff and needs a wonderfully presented refresher your're going to like this.

Did I mention it's all free? Unless you become a real big time fan and end up donating.

Yes, I'm shilling. I'm shilling for the internet.

Re: Hahaha
... Arrogance

Yeah, we got that in spades, for good reason. We are good.

Others simply hate religion for no real reason... Ignorance

This level of stupid is the very reason you and your religion are given little to no credence at all.

We don't hate you and your ignorant religion. When it comes to anything real or important we ignore you and your ignorant religion.
