Below are some of the most common misconceptions (or questions) in evolution and how science answers these concerns. Q1.) How does evolution explain the origins of life? A.) This question, and variations of it, is one of the most common things that people turn to when trying to refute evolution—It can’t reliably predict how life first originated. In truth, evolution doesn’t explain anything about how life originated. How life originated is something completely different, called abiogenesis. Q2.) A.) This is, perhaps, the most well-known, as it is easily observed and demonstrated. In short, the organism is more “fit” for survival; this idea of “fitness” is central to natural selection. Q3.) A.) Q4.) A.) Q5.) A.) Stop by and say hello.

Nature Publishing Group : science journals, jobs, and information 10 Signs We Live in a False Economy It’s time to admit that we live in a false economy. Smoke and mirrors are used to make us believe the economy is real, but it’s all an elaborate illusion. Out of one side of the establishment’s mouth we hear excitement about “green shoots”, and out of the other side comes breathless warnings of fiscal cliffs and the urgent need for unlimited bailouts by the Fed. We hear the people begging for jobs and the politicians promising them, but politicians can’t create jobs. The corporate media does their best to distract us from seeing anything real. Meanwhile the financial media makes the economy seem complicated and they ban anyone who speaks truthfully about the economy from their airwaves.

sorrel.ish.: 7 Reasons Why You Should Stop Bitching About People On Benefits. 1. One day, it could be you. The welfare state is a safety net. It is there to catch anyone who falls on hard times, including you. Say you got hit by a car and were tragically paralyzed from the waist down; the welfare state would pay you a Mobility Allowance so that you could still leave the house. It would pay for any special equipment you needed and a personal assistant to help you go to the loo, bathe and perform household chores. 2. Let’s be totally selfish here; the other option is that anyone without a significant safety net is made homeless. As attractive as it is to bluster on about how we should kick everyone off benefits and into paid employment, the jobs situation now is rather like the time my local library gave me an extension on my library books because if I were to bring them all back at once, they would not have room on the shelves.
