This Frenetic Friday was brought to you by five, the number of times I beat my head against the flat rock and the word “Why”.
He’s neat, petite and beat out twenty-one women to become the new ‘Miss’ Nevada. Yes the prettiest ‘girl’ in Nevada was born male and will go on to the Miss USA patent. Isn’t wonderful what a little artfully applied makeup, reconstructive surgery and massive hormone treatments can get you?
Oh and while we are on the subject. The latest issue of soft porn, also known as the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit edition. (And it is soft porn) Will feature another biological male as the cover model. See my previous comment about surgery, hormone treatments and artfully applied makeup
Shifting focus. Have you heard on the major news networks about the forty-eight churches that have been burned or vandalized in Canada? Me neither until someone I followed on Twitter brought it to my attention. Here is a link: Map of churches that were burned or vandalized.
And while we are talking about Christian persecution let us turn to Africa where what is called a Christian Genocide is occurring.
Do you remember this image from your biology class? Well according to one leading geneticist this is completely wrong! Dr Adam Rutherford, a geneticist at University College London, said the diagram portrays ‘wronger things about evolution than anything else’. And he argues it should be removed from biology books.
Dr Rutherford said the image ‘points to the idea that evolution has a direction… It suggests that there are ape-like ancestors and they begin to walk upright and eventually become us and it goes in a very nice, neat line.
‘This isn’t how evolution works at all. We evolve to occupy whatever environmental niche we’re in at that time…
‘We quite easily in the future could evolve into a completely different shape or go back to being quadrupedal [walking on all fours]. That’s just how evolution works. The idea that evolution ‘improves’ is not correct.’
Dr Rutherford said the fact the diagram is still widely circulated is ‘not the biggest crime in the universe’ but it is ‘mis-informative’.
‘It also implies we know the route of evolution,’ he added. ‘Apart from the relationship between Neanderthals and us, which is that they were our ancestors, we don’t really know what our ancestors were.
‘We’ve got loads of theories and loads of specimens of older humans, but we can’t draw lines between those and us.
‘That picture says ‘this is the route’ and even names them. But I think one of the most important things in science is teaching people what we don’t know, rather than just what we do know.’
He said the diagram should be ‘much messier’ and ‘much more like a network’. <source>
And then there is an OP-ED from Scientific American that states that if you deny evolution you are engaging in white supremacy. <source>. In response to this a video featuring Dr. Fazale Rana From Reasons to Believe
And lastly here it is off the wire they want to draft our daughters.
So that is it for Frenetic Friday. I am going back to hanging my head on the flat rock.
