From Sir Robert Ball, A Primer of Astronomy, Cambridge University Press, 1912:
I’m quite proud of my new chicken house:
The question of the eternal soul came up at Peaceful Science in the context of what it means to be human (and specifically, to be a human living outside the Garden of Eden under the Genealogical Adam and Eve paradigm.
I found ID palaeontologist Günter Bechly’s article on the newly announced fossil hominid Australopithecus anamensis extremely thought provoking.
An important new article, by chemist Patrick Frank, was published on Friday in Frontiers in Earth Science. In essence, it demonstrates that none of the climate prediction models currently in use is capable of making any predictions whatsoever about anthropogenic CO2 warming, because their cumulative error-bars outweigh what they seek to predict by an order of magnitude. They are therefore used illegitimately to predict climate change. This would seem to be serious problem.
Sorry that posts are a bit thin on the ground just now: a lot of work on the land, on book projects and church work are crowding things a bit. But the rather misanthropic cast of my piece on apes has been, if anything, reinforced by a series of blackmail e-mails, threatening to out me as a notorious paedophile – oh, sorry, pedophile: the guy is an American, it seems, and his e-mail host is in New York.
