Adding Fossil Fuel To The Flame


So as the gaps continue to close and missing links such as the fish that didn't flop are discovered - doesn't there have to be some tipping point at which people will stop deluding themselves? Yeah, that was a rhetorical question.

That's two hits in one week. First the discovery of water-land gap lobe-finned fish, Tiktaalik, then the announcement that Judas wasn't the traitor they believed him to be.

There's a quote that is often used when addressing issues of conservation:
In the end we conserve only what we love.
We love only what we understand.
We understand only what we have been taught.
The quote is from Baba Dioum, a Senegalese conservationist but I think it applies here as well.
