Northern Territory trade unions say seven workers from Darwin's Inpex gas project have taken their own lives during the past three years. The mental health of fly-in-fly-out workers has been under the spotlight across Australia, but unions say the Territory has largely avoided scrutiny. They're calling for a code of practice for fly-in-fly-out after inquiries in Western Australia and Queensland made similar recommendations.

Dalle teorie sulla popolazione di Thomas Robert Malthus alla lotta per la sopravvivenza dell'evoluzionismo darwiniano. Dall'eugenetica al Brave New World di Aldous Huxley. Dalla Royal e la Fabian Society fino al ruolo delle ong nelle "rivoluzioni colorate". Dietro questa meta-narrazione prometeica che ha fatto di tecnica e libertà un unico concetto, sì manifesta la creazione di un grande dispositivo di dominio e di controllo sociale. Quello che porta il nome di Charles Darwin è il modello antropologico perfetto per il neoliberismo, che infatti lo innalzerà a verità inoppugnabile attraverso i secoli, nonostante i dubbi degli stessi autori. Questa è la storia di come Darwin fu preso e buttato in campo, nel bel mezzo di una partita non sua. E di come e perché ci hanno insegnato a venerare la competizione come unico paradigma di interpretazione della vita, mettendo in ombra la vera regola di ingaggio biologica, la strategia vincente che ogni creatura vivente mette in atto come sua prima scelta naturale: la collaborazione.

A standoff is brewing at one of the world's biggest gas projects on Darwin's doorstep. Two contractors at the Ichthys Inpex venture are squabbling over payments as the project falls over time, over budget and sends one contractor's share price plunging. With more redundancies slated, I took a look at the bigger picture as the mining boom slows, companies serving the industry suffer and ask: is the current economic climate the new normal? This is an ABC report.

Well, it seems that the PPSimmons simians managed to give me sufficient reason to spend some time on making a new video sooner than I’d planned. In this particular offering, the good Pastor Carl offers us a stupendous example of his world-class quote-mining skills, using Professor Richard Dawkins and his Foundation as a source for his frenetic misrepresentation. In this episode I take the time to explain to him the error of his way on this and several other matters, as well as bringing up a point I’ve been meaning to make for quite some time, that is: if creationists really believe what they say in their anti-science diarrhea, then why aren’t any of them expending the time and money on setting up laboratories and doing the research instead of spending it on the high life and writing laughably simple-mined “journal” articles that can be torn apart by a middle-schooler?

Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB Help us caption and translate this video on Amara.org: http://www.amara.org/en/v/BWTt/ Jacob Barnett is an American mathematician and child prodigy. At 8 years old, Jacob began sneaking into the back of college lectures at IUPUI. After being diagnosed with autism since the age of two and placed in his school's special ed. program, Jacob's teachers and doctors were astonished to learn he was able to teach calculus to college students. At age nine, while playing with shapes, Jacob built a series of mathematical models that expanded Einstein's field of relativity. A professor at Princeton reviewed his work and confirmed that it was groundbreaking and could someday result in a Nobel Prize. At age 10, Jacob was formally accepted to the University as a full-time college student and went straight into a paid research position in the field of condensed matter physics. For his original work in this field, Jacob set a record, becoming the world's youngest astrophysics researcher. His paper was subsequently accepted for publication by Physical Review A, a scientific journal shared on sites such as NASA, the Smithsonian, and Harvard's webpage. Jacob's work aims to help improve the way light travels in technology. Jacob is also CEO and founder of Wheel LLC, a business he started in his mom's garage, and is in the process of writing a book to help end "math phobia" in his generation. Jacob's favorite pastime is playing basketball with the kids at his charity, Jacob's Place. It is a place where kids with autism are inspired every day to be their true authentic selves...just like Jacob. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Michael A. Cremo Historian of Archeology Abstract: Over the past two centuries, archaeologists have found bones, footprints, and artifacts showing that people like ourselves have existed on earth for many millions of years. But many scientists have forgotten or ignored these remarkable facts. Why? Primarily because they contradict the now dominant evolutionary views about human origins and antiquity. According to these views, humans like ourselves have existed for only about 100,000 or 200,000 years, and before that there were only more primitive human ancestors. This evolutionary paradigm, to which influential groups of scientists are deeply committed, has acted as a "knowledge filter." And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins. Recovering the complete set of facts takes us on a fascinating expedition, across five continents to various archaeological sites, some long forgotten, some the center of ongoing controversy. On the other hand, the complete set of facts is consistent with the accounts of extreme human antiquity found in the Puranas, the historical writings of ancient India. Bio: Michael A. Cremo is research associate in history of archeology. He is a member of the World Archaeological Congress (WAC) since 1993. His WAC3 paper "Puranic Time and the Archaeological Record" was published in the Routledge One World Archaeology series volume Time and Archaeology (1999), edited by Tim Murray. He is also a member of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA). In 2004 Cremo's paper "The Later Discoveries of Boucher de Perthes at Moulin Quignon and Their Impact on the Moulin Quignon Jaw Controversy," presented at the XXth International Congress for History of Science, Liege, Belgium, was published in a conference proceedings volume of this congress, by the scientific publisher Brepols. Cremo is the principal author of the book Forbidden Archeology, a comprehensive historical survey of archaeological anomalies. In a review in British Journal for History of Science, Tim Murray said the book "provides the historian of archaeology with a useful compendium of case studies in the history and sociology of scientific knowledge, which can be used to foster debate within archaeology about how to describe the epistemology of one's discipline." Cremo is particularly interested in examining the history of the archeology from the standpoint of alternative worldviews, particularly worldviews with foundations in ancient Indian thought. He has given invited lectures on his work at the Royal Institution in London, the anthropology department of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, the archeology department of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, and many other scientific institutions. He has also lectured on his work at universities throughout the world.

Doomfist has officially dropped in Overwatch and I am super excited to play him and experience his aggressive play style. But as I read up about him and observed his in-game interactions, I realized that Doomfist has a pretty unique social and political philosophy. The wiki characterizes him as a “darwinist” and the term “evolution” crops up fairly frequently. Yet, when you actually sit down and look at everything wholistically, you realize that Doomfist has a lot more in common with Karl Marx than he does Charles Darwin.

Robert Greene stops by the Googleplex to discuss his latest book, "Mastery." You can find "Mastery" on Google Play: http://goo.gl/lpJRA . From the publicist: What did Charles Darwin, middling schoolboy and underachieving second son, do to become one of the earliest and greatest naturalists the world has known? What were the similar choices made by Mozart and by Caesar Rodriguez, the U.S. Air Force's last ace fighter pilot? In Mastery, Robert Greene's fifth book, he mines the biographies of great historical figures for clues about gaining control over our own lives and destinies. Picking up where The 48 Laws of Power left off, Greene culls years of research and original interviews to blend historical anecdote and psychological insight, distilling the universal ingredients of the world's masters. Temple Grandin, Martha Graham, Henry Ford, Buckminster Fuller—all have lessons to offer about how the love for doing one thing exceptionally well can lead to mastery. Yet the secret, Greene maintains, is already in our heads. Debunking long-held cultural myths, he demonstrates just how we, as humans, are hardwired for achievement and supremacy. Fans of Greene's earlier work and Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers will eagerly devour this canny and erudite explanation of just what it takes to be great.

DarylLawsonLive.com FATAL CALLING US ‘missionary’ shot dead with arrows by remote tribe ‘believed it was his calling from God to convert them to Christianity’ https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7791812... John Allen Chau had reportedly visited the prohibited North Sentinel Island in the Indian Ocean to preach Christianity to the tribe AN American tourist killed by a tribe on a remote Indian island felt he was called by God to bring the gospel to the uncontacted people. North Sentinel Island is off-bounds to visitors and home to the Sentinelese, who killed John Allen Chau after he was illegally ferried there by fishermen, officials said. The island is located in India's remote Andaman and Nicobar chain. The Sentinelese are a community of hunter-gatherers who live there isolated from the outside world. "A murder case has been registered," one of the officials told Reuters. Because contact with the tribe is forbidden John's killers cannot be prosecuted despite taking a life. He described himself on Instagram as a “Wilderness EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), “PADI Advanced Open Water Diver”, “Outbound Collective Explorer” and a “Snakebite Survivor”. Just before he left in his kayak, Mr Chau handed the fishermen a long note. Police say he had written that Jesus had bestowed him with the strength to journey to the most forbidden places on Earth. A journal belonging him was also found by police where he wrote about his desire to spread God’s word. One headache facing authorities is retrieving his body because contact with the tribe is forbidden. Dependra Pathak, Director General of Police of the Andaman and Nicobar islands, told CNN: "We have a team out in the waters for reconnaissance and to strategise how to recover his body. “The team consists of coastal guards, officials from tribal welfare department, forest department officers and police officials." Both officials asked for anonymity as they are not authorised to speak to the media. Chau, 27, had reportedly visited the island hoping to preach Christianity to the tribe. Jatin Narwal, Superintendent of Police at Port Blair, told TNM that John was last seen alive on November 16. He added: "He lived in Alabama, US. He is some kind of paramedic. He was on a misplaced adventure in prohibited area to meet uncontacted persons. "People thought he is a missionary because he had mentioned his position on god and that he was a believer on social media or somewhere online. "But in a strict sense, he was not a missionary. He was an adventurer. His intention was to meet the aborigines." A source told AFP: "He tried to reach the Sentinel island on November 14 but could not make it. Two days later he went well prepared. He left the dinghy midway and took a canoe all by himself to the island. "He was attacked by arrows but he continued walking. The fishermen saw the tribals tying a rope around his neck and dragging his body. “They were scared and fled but returned next morning to find his body on the sea shore.” When they got back to Port Blair on South Andaman Island they told a local preacher, who was a friend of Chau's, what had happened. Cops have launched an investigation, Deepak Yadav, a police official in the island chain in the Bay of Bengal, said in a statement late on Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the United States consulate in India's southern city of Chennai said in an email: "We are aware of reports concerning a U.S. citizen in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. "When a U.S. citizen is missing, we work closely with local authorities as they carry out their search efforts," she added, but declined to provide further details over privacy concerns. Reuters was not immediately able to trace contact details for a family member or representative of Chau. Bible verses Rom_10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? Mat_4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. Rom_8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Mat_10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: Mar_16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Act_16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, 1Ch 14:10 And David enquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto him, Go up; for I will deliver them into thine hand. 1Ch_14:14 Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. daryl lawson https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS_OS1h5sJ0o012RJX98_jw

To listen to more of Ernst Meyer’s stories, go to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJu-EJPfLYc&index=1&list=PLVV0r6CmEsFwvkvR52bKoUPNxAMTOhHL9 US-German biologist Ernst Mayr (1904-2005) was a leader in evolutionary biology, gaining a PhD at 21. In his seminal work 'Systematics and Origin of the Species' considered as one of his greatest works, he integrated the theories of Darwin and Mendel. [Listener: Walter J Bock] TRANSCRIPT: As I got deeper and deeper into the history of biology, and in particularly in connection with my Darwin studies, I became more and more in contact with problems of philosophy. And, as I studied and I started to read the philosophic literature, the leading so-called philosophers of science, I began to subscribe to philosophical journals and I was dismayed and distressed that the real problems of biology were not mentioned by anybody, they were not treated by anybody. And what was called philosophy of science wasn't philosophy of science at all, it was philosophy of a mixture of physics, mathematics and logic, and much of it totally unsuitable for biology. And I finally got quite angry and I think it was in 1967 or thereabouts that I gave a lecture to the… at a AAAS [American Association for the Advancement of Science] meeting in Berkeley… no, it was in Los Angeles, in California, in which I lashed out against the philosophers – this was in a philosophical symposium – saying, ‘You're talking about philosophy of science and it's nothing but philosophy of physics’. And there was something rather amusing, the next speaker after me was a astronomer who constantly said, ‘Philosophy of science, I mean of physics’. He was sufficiently scared by my angry outburst that he didn't dare to use the word philosophy of science when he really meant philosophy of physics. Well, it took another two or three years before this paper of mine was published. In the meantime I continued to do more reading and more thinking about it and I gradually realized that I myself, already, had greatly contributed toward the development of a philosophy of biology.

Dr. Stuart Kornfeld is the David C. and Betty Farrell Distinguished Professor of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis. He is best known for his work elucidating the processes governing lysosome biogenesis. His research continues to uncover roles for oligosaccharide biosynthesis, processing, and maturation in mediating proper folding and transport of proteins. In an interview with JCI Editor-at-Large Ushma Neill, Kornfeld discusses how his first biochemistry course, taught by Carl and Gerty Cori, and his work as a postdoctoral researcher in Luis Glaser’s lab led to his interest in the role of sugar moieties in cellular physiology. Kornfeld also discusses his early work with postdoctoral fellows Ira Tabas and Ajit Varki and graduate student Marc Reitman in characterizing the trafficking of lysosomal proteins. Finally, Kornfeld addresses the importance of mentors in the development of physician-scientists.

Specifically, racing Pigeons. I believe I had seen a copy of the 'Racing Pigeon Journal’ somewhere and simply stated I had to ប្រយុទ្ទប្រណាំង។ សំណួរ know more. रेसिंग कबूतर प्रश्न I read everything I could find in the main public library. I believe this was in 1939. Anyhow, I knew I had to get involved in this fascinating hobby. My financial resources were a little slim to say the least, so I designed a coop about 6 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 4 feet high. It had a 賽鴿。 一個問題 sloping roof that lifted (opened) at a hinge for colúin rásaíochta. ceist access to the inside. My friend the old carpenter that had been next door had moved to a shop on 4th Avenue and 8th Street. I cannot remember how I tracked him down. He was glad to see me and made a few suggestions on how to make the coop better. As I recall, the coop cost me about $6, gołębie wyścigowe. pytanie रेसिंग कबूतर एक प्रश्न obviously in retrospect, he could not have charged me for anything more than the materials. I still had a few dollars left of my cache that I could use for a few birds. First, I had to get the coop home with my old reliable wagon. This was no small task as I had at least 8 long blocks to traverse, partly uphill. It was quite a balancing act, but I did it all on my own. Once home I had to figure out how to raise it to a 3-foot high platform, I had built along side the garage. The platform was made with a couple of two by fours I had found. I skidded my coup up on some boards onto the platform … I thought it looked neat. racing pigeons. a question pombos de corrida. uma pergunta pretekárskych holubov. otázka At first, all I could afford were a few tumblers a boy near Bethesda Church sold me ... cheap.

That is why this trkački golubovi. pitanje particular breed is called tumblers. It was easy to train them to come in. I would shake pigeon food in a coffee can and that makes a noise that can be heard for quite a distance. They soon learned to associate this with dinnertime.

He was the one I had first purchased birds from. It would be mine for $25 if I could figure out how to transport the coop. This was no small obstacle since it weighed many hundreds of pounds and my house was about one mile away. A wagon wouldn't’t work for this one.

Dawkins' scornful tone drew strongly mixed reactions from the audience; some stood and applauded his courage. Others wondered whether his strident approach could do more harm than good.

From the wide balcony of the Cottage Hotel at the high end of town, the northeast view looks over the tops of three mountain ranges advancing into lost desert basin and range, layering in greys from light to dark hiding mysteries of pioneers and prospectors of the Audacious Generation struggling against the Wild West impelled by burning visions inspired by travel guides and drawings of the 1850s overland journals telling wild stories of the greatest migration of people in the history of the world. Some of them pared off on the dry eastern drainage of the Sierras. People such as Seldom Seen Slim and desert homesteaders like the prior generations of Scrappy, manager of the Cottage Hotel, happy to be in the area all her life. Indigo evenings at the high end of Main Street on the North Porch of Goat Sky Ranch Bed, Breakfast & BBQ BYO see both of the two different northwest and northeast mountain vistas in hues of deepening blue and gray. One hundred feet lower on the north end of Main Street, a photographer in the foot steps of Ansel Adams has captured those moments of light on display in his gallery near the General Store with early 1900s phosphate soda fountain for floats, sundaes and a whole lot more. On the the other side is a local lounge and across the street the Old West White House Saloon in white paint and corrugated metal roof, desert oxide gray, decades old but not rusted. Antique phosphate sodas are thankfully not as sweet as many soda pops today. Bring ribs, chicken, hamburger, hot dogs, corn and/or steak to work either of two great BBQ grilles at your own pace for lunch or dinner, either at the Mountain View North Porch or the organic desert picnic garden with views to the eastern hillside where dwell dark aged wood ruins of many historic mining works and mill buildings several hundred yards away. [Hazardous - Stay Away]. The eclectic desert garden BBQ is adjacent to the large hot tub building for guests of the Cottage Hotel. In the Randsburg Art Gallery a hand painted map of southern California high desert depicts the highest elevation in the continental USA - Mount Whitney 14,495 feet above sea level in the Sequoia National Forest in the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains and a moderate distance to the east-southeast the lowest point in the United States - Death Valley at 282 feet BELOW sea level, too hot and too dry in the summer. In between are military reservations of Fort Irwin desert warfare and armored tank training center, China Lake Naval Weapons Center and Edwards Air Force Base. The map is a fresco 10 foot square. Off map to the northeast in southern Nevada is Nellis Bombing and Gunnery Range and off map to the south is experimental military aircraft development center - Skunk Works, famous since the 1950s with the X-1 to Right Stuff coming together in the X-15. First Bank of Randsburg was open for six months then failed. Randall Hoot Smith is now the pleasant owner. Erma Maw - Choctaw Indian Artist.

What is INDEPENDENT SCIENTIST? What does INDEPENDENT SCIENTIST mean? INDEPENDENT SCIENTIST meaning - INDEPENDENT SCIENTIST definition - INDEPENDENT SCIENTIST explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. An independent scientist (historically also known as gentleman scientist) is a financially independent scientist who pursues scientific study without direct affiliation to a public institution such as a university or government-run research and development body. The expression "gentleman scientist" arose in post-Renaissance Europe but became less common in the 20th century as government and private funding increased. Most independent scientists have at some point in their career been affiliated with some academic institution, such as Charles Darwin who was affiliated with the Geological Society of London. Self-funded scientists practiced more commonly from the Renaissance until the late 19th century, including the Victorian era, especially in England, before large-scale government and corporate funding was available. Many early fellows of the Royal Society in London were independent scientists. Self-funding has the disadvantage that funds may be more restricted; however, it has the advantage of eliminating a number of inconveniences such as teaching obligations, administrative duties, and writing grant requests to funding bodies. It also permits the scientist to have greater control over research directions, as funding bodies direct grants towards interests that may not coincide with that of the scientist. However, peer review of findings is sidestepped. Furthermore, intellectual property of the inventions belongs to the inventor and not the employer. Modern science requires competence and may require access to scientific equipment. However, independent scientists may have past careers as funded scientists, cooperate with funded colleagues, obtain partial equipment-only grants or choose directions where the most expensive resource required is the researcher's time. If the research succeeds, independent scientists may publish results in the same peer-reviewed journals as funded scientists do. Scientists may choose to work on unusual projects with high risk of failure also when the grant system does not fund them. A scientist could be attributed the status of independent scientist if they work on such projects during a gap between two academic positions, for example. Modern-day independent scientists who fund their own research on an independent basis include, for example, Stephen Wolfram who funds his research through the sale of Mathematica software, Julian Barbour, Aubrey de Grey, Barrington Moore, Susan Blackmore and James Lovelock. Peter Rich said of Peter D. Mitchell: "I think he would have found it difficult to have gotten funding because his ideas were rather radical." Mitchell went on to win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1978. Chemist Luis Leloir funded the research institute he headed, the Institute for Biochemical Research, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1970.

To start, here are two general informative links: http://tektonticker.blogspot.com/2011/02/inerrancy-and-interpretation-part-5.html -- a look at the original exchange with Gundry in 1983. http://tektonticker.blogspot.com/search/label/Norman%20Geisler%3B%20inerrancy%3B%20Defending%20Inerrancy -- subject link; critiques of various parts of Defending Inerrancy. Film notes: :48 -- Hector Avalos is a Biblical scholar who used to be a child evangelist. He has maintained a fundamentalist mindset in spite of becoming a scholar. See articles on him under his name at http://www.tektonics.org/TK-A.html Rusty and Skippy are actual squirrels he likes to watch in his yard. 1:31 -- the apocalyptic scenario is a symbol of predictions that the church in American has less than half a century before it becomes as ineffective and irrelevant as the church in Europe is now. 3:32 -- in the dialogue here, many of Geisler's critical lines and arguments -- and Gundry's one line -- comes directly from their exchange in 1983 in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society. 3:40 -- because I do not agree with Gundry's thesis, I have no explained it much in the vid. However, it is similar to Mike Licona's thesis (explained in Geisler's Christmas Carol) to the extent that it proposes that Matthew is in some sense not intending to offer narrative history at certain points, but something else. A major difference is that whereas Licona sees this as a more isolated phenomenon, Gundry saw it as more widespread. One thing I will note is that Geisler erred repeatedly in 1983 in referring to midrash as though it were "myth" or falsehood -- which is the same misapprehension he has had when dealing with Licona. 6:15 -- what becomes clear in his debate with Gundry -- and later Licona -- is that when Geisler forbids going "beyond" or "behind" the text, he only means it should be forbidden when he disagrees with what results when one does so. 7:34 -- the diversion scene is a response to some (anonymous) Geisler supporters who complained of the alleged indignity shown to Geisler in the Christmas Carol vid. 8:34 -- see link above for a review of the chapter in Geisler's book where he takes on Ehrman, Bock, and Webb.

Explore one of the world's finest collections of 500,000 rocks, gems and minerals, including 5,000 meteorites, and find out how you can use it as a resource for economic geology and scientific research at the Natural History Museum in London. The Natural History Museum in London is a museum exhibiting a vast range of specimens from various segments of natural history. It is one of three major museums on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, the others being the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. The Natural History Museum's main frontage, however, is on Cromwell Road. The museum is home to life and earth science specimens comprising some 80 million items within five main collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy, palaeontology and zoology. The museum is a world-renowned centre of research specialising in taxonomy, identification and conservation. Given the age of the institution, many of the collections have great historical as well as scientific value, such as specimens collected by Charles Darwin. The museum is particularly famous for its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons and ornate architecture—sometimes dubbed a cathedral of nature—both exemplified by the large Diplodocus cast which dominates the vaulted central hall. The Natural History Museum Library contains extensive books, journals, manuscripts, and artwork collections linked to the work and research of the scientific departments; access to the library is by appointment only. Although commonly referred to as the Natural History Museum, it was actually officially known as British Museum (Natural History) until 1992, despite legal separation from the British Museum itself in 1963. Originating from collections within the British Museum, the landmark Alfred Waterhouse building was built and opened by 1881, and later incorporated the Geological Museum. The Darwin Centre is a more recent addition, partly designed as a modern facility for storing the valuable collections.

Was Darwin wrong? And was he a racist or biased against certain ethnic groups? Well don't shoot the messenger!! "Many evolutionist imply the evolution has a saint hood type past. And has never been involved in anything that has killed anyone. And they are quick to point out how through religion, everyone kills. And religion is the sole driving force to why anyone gets killed. Basically, all Christians are killers. Because if atheist never kill, then what's left to do the killing? So what's always implied about Christians when this is always brought up? So I do a thread on how so many evolutionists not only oppress through racism. But use it as an excuse to eliminate the weaker race." Does anyone agree? Also please read this interesting article from national geographic: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm... Thanks. Regarding the fact that there are no transitional fossils (halfway between snakes and frogs, cats and dogs, dogs and horses, horses and giraffes, dinosaurs and birds, apes and humans, etc.) in the geologic record, Charles Darwin, the 'father' of evolutionary theory, wrote: "Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and serious objection which can be argued against the theory." (Charles Darwin, "On the imperfection of the geological record", Chapter X, "The Origin of Species", J. M. Dent & Sons LTD, London, 1971, pp. 292-293.) Again in his book, Darwin declared: "For I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume on which facts cannot be adduced, often apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I arrived. A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question; and this is here impossible." ("America's God and Country: Encyclopedia of Quotations" by William J. Federer, FAME Publishing, 1994, PP 198-199) "You will be greatly disappointed (by the forthcoming book); it will be grievously too hypothetical. It will very likely be of no other service than collocating some facts; though I myself think I see my way approximately on the origin of the species. But, alas, how frequent, how almost universal it is in an author to persuade himself of the truth of his own dogmas." (Charles Darwin, 1858, in a letter to a colleague regarding the concluding chapters of his "Origin of Species". As quoted in "John Lofton's Journal", The Washington Times, 8 February 1984.) Reflecting on his work near the end of his life, Darwin confessed: "I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries, suggestions, wondering all the time over everything; and to my astonishment the ideas took like wildfire. People made a religion of them." ("America's God and Country: Encyclopedia of Quotations" by William J. Federer, FAME Publishing, 1994, PP 198-199) The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an unproved theory -- is it then a science or a faith? Belief in the theory of evolution is thus exactly parallel to belief in special creation -- both are concepts which believers know to be true but neither, up to the present, has been capable of proof." (L. Harrison Matthews, FRS, Introduction to Darwin's "The Origin of Species", J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd, London, 1971, p. xi.) ""It is a cursed evil to any man to become as absorbed in any subject as I am in mine" -Charles Darwin "I love fools experiments.

To listen to more of Ernst Meyer’s stories, go to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJu-EJPfLYc&index=1&list=PLVV0r6CmEsFwvkvR52bKoUPNxAMTOhHL9 US-German biologist Ernst Mayr (1904-2005) was a leader in evolutionary biology, gaining a PhD at 21. In his seminal work 'Systematics and Origin of the Species' considered as one of his greatest works, he integrated the theories of Darwin and Mendel. [Listener: Walter J Bock] TRANSCRIPT: When I looked at the classification of the ducks, I was horrified because it was based on purely superficial things like… ducks that would dive and ducks that would not dive, ducks that would eat fish and so… ducks that would not eat fish, and it was a totally artificial classification. And I knew the work of two European ornithologists who had studied the habits and displays of ducks and had come to very different conclusions. One was Heinroth, the director of the zoological… of the aquarium and the zoological garden in Berlin, and the other one was the well-known Konrad Lorenz, and so I decided to produce a… for American readers who were not familiar with this literature, a modern classification of ducks. And, fortunately, by that time, the French ornithologist, Jean Delacour, had arrived at the museum, and Delacour, who was a wealthy fancier of birds, had had practically all the species of ducks of the world bred at his… in his animal park in France, and so I got him to help. And between the two of us we wrote a paper on the classification of ducks which was probably the most widely printed paper of mine, because not only was it reprinted several times in ornithological literature, but in the literature of the hunting… clan, hunting papers, sports papers, animal breeders, bird breeders, and so in… in lots of these journals this paper was reprinted. Now, the findings that Delacour and I made… were not always correct, but it was the basis and the… the changes were rather… rather minimal. But later on when molecular data were added and some other things it turned out that a few of our decisions were incorrect. But it certainly started an absolutely new era in the study of ducks, even though based on a… a lot of the European literature.
Information on PTSD from people who know what they're talking about: http://www.ptsd.org.uk/what-is-p-t-s-d/ Link to Amnesty International: http://amnesty.org/en/how-you-can-help Thunderf00t's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cyjhbepx1Go An elucidating comment from The Abominable History Man: I see what the problem is (this is a long one; my apologies). Firstly, let me just say that I am not a layman in emotional psychology, of which PTSD is a part. It is a major part of my PhD and I've beens studying it for years. The problem here is that there is now more than one type of PTSD: 'Complex PTSD' (which she may have) and PTSD (which is the one your link to describes and she doesn't have). ChunderF00t is unaware of this, as are many people. It is a change in the DSM-V from the DSM-IV, but the DSM-IV definition of PTSD is pretty much exactly the same as the DSM-V for PTSD. For PTSD: 'the person experienced, witnessed, or was confronted with an event or events that involved actual or threatened death or serious injury, or a threat to the physical integrity of self or others' (DSM-IV Criteria for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder). This does not include written or verbal death threats, but a serious threat to the self that the sufferer had no doubt was possible. It is also almost impossible for a sufferer to return to a situation that is in any way similar to the situation that created the traumatic scenario (see PTSD Criteria point C). In other words, if she had PTSD she would be unlikely to be back on Twitter with months, even years, of counselling and CBT. What I am pretty certain she will have been diagnosed with by her psychiatrist (not psychologist, in fact, by saying 'psychologist' I am hoping she misspoke, because otherwise she is either lying or has been taken in by someone who doesn't really do this sort of thing, or worse, a bloody psychotherapist!)' is 'complex PTSD'. This is 'PTSD resulting from prolonged (months or more) victimization characterized by complete control by the perpetrator and producing symptoms which include disturbance in the victim's emotion, consciousness, self-perception, perception of the perpetrator, interpersonal relating, and system of meaning.' (DSM-V, Criteria for complex PTSD) So this is partly why people are getting pissy. They don't realise that she has got PTSD, but not THAT PTSD. I'd like to say, right here, that I will be minded to personally eat the tiny brain of anyone who claims that PTSD is 'worse' than Complex PTSD. Mental health doesn't work like that. One more thing, because a colleague of mine would likely have an aneurysm if they heard you saying otherwise, PTSD and Shell Shock are not the same. Similar, but not the same. Many of the symptoms are similar but there are subtle behavioural differences. The differences between Shell Shock and PTSD are caused by quite subtle shifts in developmental constructions of sociocultural schemata; i.e. culture and society has reshaped the emotional disorder of Shell Shock into something else and different, PTSD. The biggest problem with Shell Shock, for example, was that is was supposed to only happen to women in the form of Hysteria; to suffer shell shock wasn't cowardice, but acting like a woman (SHOCK HORROR!) and that wasn't to be so. The cause has since altered and so both the symptoms and behaviours, because that IS how mental health issues work. I have a colleague who is writing her PhD on the transition from Shell Shock to PTSD and how and why they are not the same; It's really interesting. Those that say it is are psychologists and psychiatrists and they tend to be piss-poor historians. It's a bit like when people like Brian Cox try to do a history of Science and every historian of science wants to scream. Finally, that all said, Thunderf00t is a blithering idiot.

In his seminal work 'Systematics and Origin of the Species' considered as one of his greatest works, he integrated the theories of Darwin and Mendel. [Listener: Walter J Bock] TRANSCRIPT: There were two appointments of mine that didn't work out. One was a curator of invertebrates with the name of Barry Fell. He… invertebrates used to be under Alexander Agassiz, one of the best areas… one of the most outstanding areas of the Museum of Comparative Zoology. But it had greatly deteriorated in… in the… in subsequent times and I said we must build this up again, and I inquired all over the world who are the best invertebrate people. And, finally, the choice narrowed down to two. One was somebody at the British Museum of Natural History [sic], I think his name was Rees, R-E-E-S; and the other one was Barraclough Fell in New Zealand who worked on echinoderms and echinoderms had been the special field of Alexander Agassiz. We had probably the best collection of echinoderms in the world, and Rees also indicated he wasn't going to leave Britain. So I had good friends in New Zealand, particularly the President of the Royal Society of… of New Zealand – Fleming – and I said, ‘What do you know about this man Fell?' And he wrote back… a very praising report, very favorable report. So we hired Fell, and Fell undoubtedly was a very intelligent person, but he went crazy… there's just no other way of putting it. First, he started to write papers on dispersal around the Antarctic continent that were really quite queer, and I worried about him and I said, ‘Well you… you don't mix with anybody, you always sit just in your office. Why don't you mix more?’ And I invited him to lunch with me in the director's office. Well, it didn't do any good and he very soon after that began to develop a new interest in old inscriptions, particular inscriptions that had never been deciphered by anybody, maybe unknown languages or what… including, let's say, on Easter Island or… and then he… he thought… and he founded a society which, I guess, is the Epigraphic Society, that's the name of it, and he published a journal where all these… he had quite a following, but I had a feeling it was all pure invention, and I didn't know what to do about it, to… to pension him was a little difficult. But I think it was finally solved after I had retired and he was pensioned and he went to the West Coast, and he has a great following, this Epigraphic Society of his is very successful and they publish monographs and all that, but as a worker in the field of invertebrates he had been a total loss. The other appointment, and the person is still there and so I will not say very much, but it was a young man who again was highly favored by everybody. I had letters in the files from Sweden and Holland saying you don't have to look for somebody in the rest of the world, you've the best young man right there in… in Harvard. So I appointed him. He does give a reasonably good course, I'm told, but he's been very disappointing to me because he doesn't publish very much and has too many outside interests. He will dabble in Portuguese poetry and things like that. And… so in my appointments I definitely have not been lucky.
