I'm surprised nobody else found it funny.

Sky is falling; throwing trillions of dollars towards hysteria and not even utilizing the very scientific method used to discredit religious people, is not intelligent by any design.


Except that scientists do not say that.


And why don't we get to see these models in public, with the data being input and where the data was gleaned from?

Why isn't there more transparency?


Argument from ignorance. Just like any other area of science, climate research is very transparent.

The answer: nowhere, because to do so is to reveal the sham as a scam.


Yeah, right. Except that there is an overwhelming scientific consensus that it is (very) likely that GW is man-made.

A professor of mathematics and economy. How nice.

On the other hand, there is overwhelming consensus among the climate scientists:

Fine, although we have nothing to do with violence or military, let's call ourselves "militant atheists". But for the sake of fairness, let's call everyone who is passionate about their philosophy "militant":

Militant Secular Humanist
Militant Atheist
Militant Jew
Militant Christian
Militant Muslim

While I get mildly annoyed when grouped as "militant atheist", the religious people will be instantly outraged if we called them "militant"; I wonder why (just a rhetorical question though, everyone knows why).

Go to: Research sheds light on benefits of multiple mates

qomak's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by qomak

Females of most species, including many mammals, mate with multiple partners. The driving forces for this practice, known as 'polyandry', have been a mystery for evolutionary biologists for decades. This research suggests that polyandry could be the result of females adapting to avoid producing offspring carrying selfish genetic elements that reduce male fertility.


A while back I finished reading "Dr. Tatiana's sex advice to all creation" (which is a marvellous read) and in there many theories have been explained. In fact, avoiding mating a male with crippling genes is mentioned many times, for instance in the case of the bees, if I remember correctly.

The rest of the article was more interesting though.
