Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are right and God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand' - The Independent http://www.independent.co.uk/news...
While I realize that there are lot of Christian sects that are indeed very anti-science, the stance of the Roman Catholic Church is the reason why that argument has always felt like a strawman to me. And Pope Francis isn't the first pope to state this. - Victor Ganata
And the Big Bang theory was first posited by an astronomer and physicist who was also a Jesuit priest. - Victor Ganata
He has his own astrophysicist. http://archive.wired.com/wired... - Ken Morley
It seems to me like he describes an ascent of man type directed evolution. Divine artificial selection? May just be that the pope doesn't really understand the mechanisms of evolution, poor choice of words, or bad translation, of course. But it's not really compatible with the science, is it, if man is believed to be the inevitable end product, the pinnacle, of evolution? I agree it's... more... - Eivind
It's really just a version of the strong anthropic principle, though. The strong anthropic principle and the fine tuning problem make some scientists unhappy precisely because they give intelligent design an opening but they're perfectly compatible with existing evidence. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
It's also a version of creationism :) - Eivind from Android
Sure, but it's a version of creationism that isn't at odds with current observations. - Victor Ganata
“Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.” - Eivind from Android
Well, one way to summarize the strong anthropic principle is that the initial conditions of our universe inevitably lead to the evolution of intelligent life—the physical constants that define our universe make it inevitable that matter will develop into living organisms and which then inevitably evolve into sophonts. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Where, exactly, can intelligent life be found, though? - Uli
Friendfeed. - bentley
LOL, well, yeah, then we end up having to finely parse words like "intelligence", "life", "matter", "existence". - Victor Ganata
I view his remarks as political. One more effort to dislodge his American Bishops from their Republican coalition with evangelicals... - WarLord
Here's what it really is: The tooth and nail adherence to "Creation Science" was making the church looking fucking dumb. Lots of dumb things were trying to be done in the name of the church and ultimately that is turning people off. This is a bridge to sideline those people but still have an explainable way to have Genisis. - Johnny from iPhone
The thing is, the Roman Catholic Church's stance on evolution has been essentially unchanged for the last 64 years. It was really only Benedict who was trying to change things. And it was a Jesuit priest who came up with the Big Bang Theory in the first place. - Victor Ganata
But given the rise/size of other strains of Christianity who are big on Creation Science, this is a pretty clear marker to step away from them. - Johnny from iPhone
Oh, for sure. Francis definitely wants to distance himself from Benedict. But it's more like Francis is turning the wheel back to the direction it was in the first place, rather than setting off in an entirely new direction. - Victor Ganata
Pope Declares There is No Conflict Between Big Bang, Evolution and The Catholic Faith... In 1951 - uCatholic http://www.ucatholic.com/blog... - Victor Ganata
The God of the gaps approach is probably wise, but maybe he should use the Norwegian church as an case study to see what /can/ happen to a church if it is too eager to adjust its dogma according to the demands of the secular world. - Eivind

Getting really frustrated trying to track down Disney shorts. Most of these sets are OOP, and no library has them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
The Disney Treasure tins were limited edition; only 125,000 - 150,000 of each were release. The early ones were stamped with a serial number and are highly collectable now. Many of the rarer titles typically sell for hundreds of dollars on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Syn-... - Ken Morley
Do you need a copy? We have most of them. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone

Mr 45 has taken to getting $2 and spending them to get Jefferson into the public eye. He made a comment that he likes to use them in fast food restaurants because they don't kknowwhere to put them in the drawer. Miss 8 got a devilish grin on her face with that. And they had *another* pellet stove fire. - sglassme from Android

Can you like the body of work and not the person?!
Yes. Assholes who have done good science. - Joe
Happens all the time. See: entertainers. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
Yes. Unfortunately, if you know too much about the person *before* you encounter the body of work it may poison the body of work (e.g., Orson Scott Card in my case). - Walt Crawford
Yes, but when demonstrating that appreciation in public, you have to work harder at saying why the work is important to you in a bubble and it's not a validation of the creator. - Johnny
what Eric said. some of my favourite music is by ppl i can't stand. - Big Joe Silence
<333333333333 - Simply Caroline from iPhone
You absolutely can, but not liking the person can certainly take a toll on how much you like the body of work. A lot of it, for me, has to do with just how much I dislike the person, and who else is involved in the body of work. Some of it also has to do with what work was done before that person turned into the person you don't like. For instance, Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) is totally... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Sometimes "tidying" means "put things in the right general room of the house, or at least one room closer to the right room."
moving it closer to where it belongs DEFINITELY counts. - Lnorigb
I did a lot of that today. Kitchen looks much better, as does living room. bedroom...has a lot of shoes sitting out. - ellbeecee
that's all I seem to be able to ever do. One day rooms will actually look like I imagine they will...that day will probably come right before I move out. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Someday I want to take a whole day off work just to tidy, straighten, do all the things where everytime I see one particular thing I think "oh yeah, I need to do that thing..." On second thought, I'd better plan for a week. - Catherine Pellegrino
I assume that if I move something from the floor to a different horizontal surface I have tidied. - laura x from iPhone
Exactly what Laura said. - Yolanda from Android
I have baskets. I put the things that are on floors, surfaces, sofas, etc, in the baskets, on the theory that eventually i will have to empty the baskets because they are full and thus things will get put away. But, um, I have a lot of baskets. - Jenica

"The ChronodeVFD is a personal project I’ve been working on for a couple of months. It’s a wristwatch built around the IVL2-7/5 VFD display tube. I originally purchased a few of these tubes to build a standard desk clock, but after playing around with them, I realized I could probably build a wristwatch too. The tube has a number of features which make it more suited than most Soviet-surplus VFDs for this purpose." - Me from Bookmarklet

"n the 1880s, baseball lovers would crowd for hours in opera houses, watching as behind-the-scenes workers gathered pitch-by-pitch updates via telegram and displayed them on stage. On a Library of Congress blog, media historian Mark Schubin writes about an Augusta, Georgia opera house, which in 1885 would configure a blackboard that had each team's lineup, a baseball diamond, punched-out holes for bases, and flags representing a baserunner's progress. Admission to the board: Ten cents." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
