Sounds like a real cool guy. I hope his passing was peaceful and painless.

So, you're going to completely ignore all those examples I provided, then. So you're not interested in intellectual honesty then. Fine. I'll forgo the courtesy, since you've proven you don't deserve it.

@25: Evolution is biology. The Big Bang is cosmology.

THESE ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FIELDS OF STUDY.*

The Big Bang is not even what you're referring to. You're actually confusing evolution and abiogenesis. This speaks volumes about your scientific illiteracy. The fact that it sounds like you're also quoting from the "Wedge Strategy" of Intelligent Design with the public debate on ideas to "compete for adherents from the population" isn't helping your case.

@28: Now who's the one that doesn't understand definitions?** The definition of a scientific theory is miles and miles away from the colloquial usage. They're practically antonyms.

@29: The study of truth is philosophy,*** which is not even in the same ballpark as biology or cosmology. You're conflating "hard" science with "soft" science.

It's like Tim Minchin was thinking of you specifically when he wrote "Storm."

*YOU IGNORANT TWIT

**It was always you.

***Science has no use for "truth," science only deals in facts.

Keep in mind that my only training in any of this is a high school diploma and an Internet connection. Please, for the sake of my entertainment, engage on this topic with one of the professionals in these fields that frequents SLOG, like Venomlash.

This seems like a case where some light stalking is justified, to get their license plate(s) and call the police for theft, assault and battery.

"Assaultsiago" is a dad-level pun, but I'll allow it.

The Seahawks have their own chef? They don't live exclusively off protein bars and steroids?

And why does anyone care what he has to say, about anything beyond the sports team for which he works?

There's the mention of the National Parks centennial I had hoped to see today. Thanks Jennifer! I greatly enjoyed the video.
Aug 25 Knat commented on Watch Hillary Clinton Describe "the Steady Stream of Bigotry" Coming from Donald Trump.
Hillary's always at the top of her game when she's in attack mode. Trump makes it awfully easy too. That line about how his "best" people have been replaced multiple times is a really good one, hopefully they can weaponize that into a commercial, attacking his judgment and what it would do to America to have a Cabinet full of these sorts of incompetents.

@30: I already did. You might want to check your monitor settings, because blue and black text are apparently not differentiated well enough on your screen. I've had the same issue on monitors in the past.

No mention that today is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Parks service either, what has been called America's Best Idea. This seems like kind of a big deal, but I suppose I might be biased, given that I grew up near Glacier National Park.

@16: You're the one extrapolating an intentionally vague definition of religion into a justification that evolution has supernatural elements and can't be proven, despite me having just provided you multiple concrete, observable, recent examples that it can.

@17: Sssshhhh. It upsets some of the more fragile folks here, to point out that sexism can be directed at men as well as women. Just let it go.
