The current scientific theory of creation requires us to assume that all of this arose from a random quantum fluctuation that got expanded to massive scale by cosmological inflation. It doesn't require the existence of an underlying purpose or a superhuman entity guiding creation, but it doesn't preclude it either.
But once you start accepting the idea that random quantum fluctuations can influence large scale processes, you've opened the door to Boltzmann brains http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... and who is to say there *aren't* superhuman sapient entities floating around in our universe? - Victor Ganata
*cue appearance of Q* - Micah from FFHound!

The difference is that Russell's Teapot doesn't affect your existence even if it exists, while a Boltzmann brain very well might. - Victor Ganata

Two-Billion-Year-Old Fossils Reveal Strange and Puzzling Forms
Show all
"To a human, two billion years is an unfathomable interval. But that, a team of European, Gabonese, and American scientists now say, is how long ago a recently discovered hoard of fossils suggests Earth’s first big life evolved — large enough to see with the naked eye, and in a spectrum of forms that tease and bewilder. What do their shapes mean? Would the life that existed on 2-billion-year-old Earth have given us any clues to the Earth we see today? Just what were these things?" - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"To put the unexpectedness of this fossil cache in perspective, consider that Earth condensed out of the planet-forming gas disk that shrouded our young sun about 4.5 billion years ago. Life evolved surprisingly swiftly after Earth’s birth, probably by 3.5 billion years ago and perhaps more than 4 billion years ago. But the ancestors of the large life forms we see today did not appear... more... - Mark H
"So what might have encouraged this early flirtation with bigness? Immediately prior to their evolution, atmospheric oxygen spiked during the Great Oxygenation Event of 2.3 billion years ago, a result of the invention of photosynthesis by cyanobacteria and the running out of iron deposits with which to sop all the resulting oxygen up by rusting out (the genesis of the famous banded iron... more... - Mark H

Exploring the Universe with Nuclear Power
Show all
"As the Marshall Space Flight Center’s manager of nuclear thermal research, Dr. Houts is well versed in the benefits it has to offer space exploration. According to the presentation he and fellow staffers made, a fission reactor can be used in a rocket design to create Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP). In an NTP rocket, uranium or deuterium reactions are used to heat liquid hydrogen inside a reactor, turning it into ionized hydrogen gas (plasma), which is then channeled through a rocket nozzle to generate thrust." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"A second possible method, known as Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEC), involves the same basic reactor converted its heat and energy into electrical energy which then powers an electrical engine. In both cases, the rocket relies on nuclear fission to generates propulsion rather than chemical propellants, which has been the mainstay of NASA and all other space agencies to date." - Mark H

"The Australian's bizarre obituary of bestselling novelist Colleen McCullough has received international attention for its sexist second sentence: "Plain of feature and certainly overweight, she was, nevertheless, a woman of wit and warmth."  McCullough's The Thorn Birds sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making her the most successful author in Australian literature.  So for your pleasure I have written a few other obituaries in the style of The Australian." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

This is what the world looks like if you scale countries by population - Vox - http://www.vox.com/2015...
"One neat thing about this one is that unlike with some cartograms, the basic shapes of the countries are very recognizable. Such low-population, large-area Anglophone nations as Canada and Australia nearly vanish from the map, though, while the nations of the Indian subcontinent swell enormously. Russia also shrinks from being a giant of land mass to only a mid-sized country as judged by population. You can also see that Nigeria really dominates the West African landscape in terms of actual population in a way that conventional area maps don't reflect." - rönin from Bookmarklet

The Bloodthirsty Truth of the Beautiful Orchid Mantis
The Bloodthirsty Truth of the Beautiful Orchid Mantis
"The orchid mantis is something of a poster child for such cryptic mimicry. So obviously true is this evolutionary story that it is often discussed today as established fact. [...] Now a set of new studies by James O’Hanlon and colleagues shows quite clearly that we’ve been getting it wrong all this time. While it is indeed a flower mimic – the first known animal to do this – the orchid mantis doesn’t hide in an orchid. It doesn’t hide at all. And to an insect, it doesn’t even look particularly like an orchid." - Eivind from Bookmarklet
"This phenomenon, known as aggressive mimicry, occurs in other animals. The Bolas spider releases chemicals that imitate sex pheromones released by female moths seeking a mate. Male moths, with their elaborately plumed antennae, can detect these pheromones from miles away, and are lured in to their death. Carnivorous Photuris firefly females can mimic the flash-responses of a different... more... - Eivind

Seems like a reasonable investment. - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
It would be, if the right people were using it - the article points out that a lot of the people prescribed aspirin don't actually meet the criteria for it to be useful. The real-life numbers are probably higher for "not prevented" than they were for the carefully selected trial. - Jennifer Dittrich
