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
The Roman Catholic Church has frequently adjusted itself to the secular world and has employed the god-of-the-gaps argument often. I'm mainly just objecting to the media hype that somehow Pope Francis is being revolutionary. The episode with Galileo is mostly a half-millenium old strawman that happened for political reasons rather than true anti-science sentiment. Mendel, Bacon, Lemaitre are not anomalous. The Vatican is not as bound to literal interpretations of Scripture as many other Christian sects. - Victor Ganata

Clothes without pockets is one of those things about being a girl which isn't necessarily oppression, but seriously annoy me. The relative lack of professional gear options for women in manual fields (e.g. chef pants, plumber pants, etc) sucks too. AND THEN I FOUND (see comments) WOOHOO!
http://www.scrubsandbeyond.com/Dickies... HOUSTON WE HAVE POCKETS - Lo
My lengthy google hunts for "technical women's cargo pants" turned up these badass-named pants, like Taclite B-class, which I ultimately deduced were for lady cops. This sentence had me laughing for like 20 minutes: "Teflon® coated to repel stains, liquid, and soil, the Women's PDU Class B Taclite Cargo Pant features a professional flat front design with permanent military creases and an internal gripper panel to keep your shirt securely in place, ensuring a professional profile in any setting." - Lo
Teflon coating would actually be great for a kitchen, but it doesn't sound very comfortable, and I'm afraid the "military creases" would be confusing/frightening in the kitchen world. Also, tucking in my shirt? HAHAHAHAHA - Lo
Girls are also born with what is known in Norway as the "plumber's pocket." I suspect health codes would bar you from utilizing that in your field, though. - Eivind from Android
Damn, nice, bentley... I dunno how I missed those. I'm still happier with scrubs, they have petite sizes so I don't have to have them tailored (and more pockets!). - Lo
Morgan, that's... interesting. It's always nice to learn more weird Norway facts! - Lo
I only know about ChefWear because there must be a culinary school near work. I see students wearing ChefWear pants (which very conveniently have the logo in a nicely visible spot). - bentley
I wore hospital-issue scrubs when I temped at the hospital in the early 90's. These you found look much nicer, sturdier, and have loads more pockets. I like. - bentley
If you are interested in 3/4 sleeve length versus the short sleeved scrub tops - I fell in love with this style! http://www.uniformadvantage.com/pages... - Janet
I have no idea but Duluth trading for women might have something for you http://women.duluthtrading.com/ - WarLord
Don't dismiss the 511 Taclite pants. I'm a guy, but 511 stuff is really comfortable and extremely durable. - David Lounsbury
Sweet, Janet! This job requires t-shirts instead of chef coats, and I'm looking for 3/4 stuff to wear underneath as it's quite cold in the mornings. - Lo from Android
David, good to know! I love all the awesome tips I get on FF :) - Lo from Android
Second on the 511 stuff. My husband loves that brand. - Yolanda

This is more like a 'Whinefest' than a bitchfest, but the fact that it's supposed to rain tomorrow on Halloween, along with us only having 1 car, totally bites. I don't have a car to take the kids to school if it's raining. I don't have a car to drive them home if it's raining. I'm picturing a whole lot of wet and some sad kids for tomorrow. =(

Heh. Well, I'm glad he tweeted it. Tell him I said, 'Hi.' Not RMS, parker. - Micah
it reminded me how great RMS is from a distance, in a "gee, i'm glad i don't actually know him" kind of way. - kendrak
It's kind of like I don't want to picture a world where an RMS couldn't exist. On the other hand, were I world-building I'd have a long list of other priorities I'd be working on first. - Micah

Finally! Our mortgage broker says we're good to get a car! Hopefully by this weekend we'll be styling with cup holders, power windows, and an uncracked windshield. Lol!
Great news! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Have you decided on what kind of van you guys want? - Tamara J. B.
I'm almost certain we're going to get an Odyssey, but the Toyota Sienna has the light blue color we want. Argh! - Yvonne Renee
Art's Automotive in Berkeley, which specializes in Japanese cars, recommended the Odyssey over the Sienna back 8 or so years ago when I thought I might be looking. Although the Sienna is still supposed to be a quality vehicle. However, I think you'll care more about the innards than the car color when you're at the mechanics. - Spidra Webster
So true. =) When we decided not to get the transmission fixed on the Chevy Venture, I asked the mechanic which of the 2 he saw more often. He actually told me he sees more Odysseys with tranny problems than Siennas, but really how many can there be? - Yvonne Renee
FWIW, our 2006 Sienna has been golden. - Big Joe Silence
It's funny/hard because everyone that has an Odyssey loves it. Everyone that has a Sienna loves it. =) - Yvonne Renee
That's why I asked the Japanese auto specialists. They deal with tons of both of them. However, I was asking them some time ago and the picture may have changed since then. I'm sure things depend on model years. - Spidra Webster
Yvonne Renee
I'm freaking out about being a 1-car family right now. The minivan finally gave out. We can't buy another until our mortgage refinance goes through. Until then, all of the commitments for carpooling to school and driving for field trips are cancelled. =(
*hugs* I can totally understand your frustration. Any eta on when the refi will be done? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
That's the other thing... I can't get an answer from our mortgage broker. Waaaaaaa! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
What about a cheap rental for a week or two? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
What about stealing one you can look up how to hot wire most vehicles online. Or so I've heard. - Steve C Team Marina
Lol! I think the rental is the way to go. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Over here, a lot of people I know use car-hire sites like Zipcar - is that sort of thing an option? - Iain Baker
I could check into using ZipCar, but I have carseats to deal with so I'm not sure how convenient that would be. I can rent a full-size car for about $180/week. That should get us over the hump, but it's not as ideal as having a minivan. - Yvonne Renee
Zipcar has minivans and full size vans, depending on location. If you only need the car for errands, Zipcar is the better deal. But if you have to have it all day long, regular car rental is better. - Spidra Webster

Drunk Florida Man Tries to Use Taco as ID After His Car Catches Fire at Taco Bell | Miami New Times - http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide...
"The incident occurred in the early morning of October 1 in Jensen Beach, according to the blog Off the Beat. Falkner, 30, had apparently decided to make a run for a fourth meal after downing some beers, and he somehow made it all the way to the fast-food joint in his Chevy pickup, placed his order, and received his taco before falling asleep. The Taco Bell manager had to call police because Falkner was out cold at the pick-up window and holding up customers behind him. Clearly this was not a victimless crime, and our hearts go out to the hungry folks who had to wait so long for their late-night munchies. A deputy awoke Falkner and then asked for his ID. Falkner said no before reaching into his bag and presenting the officer with a taco. Another deputy clarified they were asking for an ID, not a taco. Falkner chuckled and began eating the taco. Then deputies noticed Falkner had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator while his truck was in park. The engine had caught fire, and fire extinguishers were used to put it out." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
