So Called Spirit Science

I came across this quote today on a friends FB. "With the evolutionary jump now occurring with the emergence of homo spiritus, their will be a significantachievable shift in consciousness, firstly with that group and then progressively encapsulating an everexpanding proportion of humanity worldwide." -Dr. David R.

An Explanation of Why The Term "Missing Link" is Misleading

Hi all! If you have ever discussed evolution with someone trained to deny it, then you know how frustrating it can be. They will be dropping bits and pieces of info that they picked up on slightly but don't understand, and sometimes so will evolution defenders.

After all, this is a science based in, and supported by mounds of data. There is no "debate" over the…See More

Some Non-Partisan Discussion Points Against The Defunding of PBS

Hi, everyone. I'm very interested in the debate over PBS and any threat  to defund it no matter how serious always gets my attention. I think Mitt Romney's threat to defund PBS speaks for a lot of people angry about government spending, yet these people don't seem to see the value of a PBS. I have seen 2 questions today that deserve, and actually have quite reasonable answers. But, these questions are political stances masked in inquiry. I don't believe that the people that ask these question's…See More
