It is kind of odd that I find myself writing with the intent to teach people about evolution. It would seem very few people actually know what evolution is. And there are a lot of reasons for this.
One big reason is that textbooks do a really poor job at explaining evolution, most actually get it wrong. Even the teachers at grade schools and high schools often don’t understand what evolution is. So they end up teaching a faulty version of evolution. Most often, they say it is one animal turning into another. Even the textbooks in schools are often incorrect, mainly because the people writing them don’t know what evolution is let alone how to describe it. Then you even have those who reject evolution writing the textbooks and putting their own false version of it down in print. Only to end up being taught to children.
So what is evolution? In the most simplistic way possible to describe it, it is change. Nothing magical or extraordinary about it.
Nothing actually ends up turning into something else. Instead, it’s just a variation of what it once was, even if it looks vastly different than its ancestor. A good way to think about it is if you take a piece of clay and mold it into something. It’s still clay no matter what shape you make it.
Another example is the termite. The termite simply is a variation of a wood eating cockroach. It’s a social wood eating cockroach. It didn’t stop being a cockroach when it evolved, because it’s still a cockroach, just a variation of them.
Even humans are just variations of our ancestors. All of us are still eukaryote, unikonts and opisthokonts, despite how we look so vastly different. Just as we are still primates and mammals. When we say ‘Homo sapiens’, it is just a name for specific type of variation of our ancestors.
Again, there is nothing magical or special about it. One organism does not turn into another completely different type of organism, that because does not outgrow its ancestry.
Yesterday we found out the sex of baby to be. We are having a another boy. So we have a spare…
All kidding aside, it wonderful news. I know Luz wanted a girl, but is happy nonetheless. Me, I’m happy no matter the sex of the baby. I do know this means Luz will want to try again at some point, something you wont hear me disagree on.
Now, comes the hard part, choosing a name. Something we are finding is harder this time around.
Just a quick update: My wife and I will be having another baby. We found out a a few weeks ago, I just did not have the time to announce it on my blog. With that said, next month, we may know the sex of the little one.
I thought I would take the time to post my top 3 favorite YouTube channels that I recommend. As well, give a little bit of information as to why I’m recommending them.
Truth or tradition: This YouTube channel is notbjust one of my favorite Christian channels. It is one of my top 3 over all channel’s I watch. They take a very humbled approach to how they do their videos and the message that they conveyed. As well they’re doing a great job glorifying God with their videos. It’s great for atheist and theist alike.
Sargon of akkad: Sargon, although an atheist really doesn’t attack religion just behaviors and actions. He’s been fighting for people’s rights particular out right to free speech as well as fighting against stupidity, particularly that which emanates from social justice Warriors and feminist.
Noel Plum: People often say, “before you criticize somebody try and live in their shoes for a day.” That’s what I like about Noel Plum. He is the kind of person who tries to understand other people’s points of view even if he disagrees with them and tries to relay other people’s point of view fairly to others While at the same time putting forth his own opinion in the fairest possible way. He’s highly articulate, inventive in the examples uses and dare I say, he’s even philosophical in a way.
We are starting to see people stand up around the world and say, “enough is enough.” As their leaders, in what can be be described as attempting to deliberately cause the erosion of their own countries.
The United Kingdom had brexit, The United states elected Trump and now France could elect their Trump, La Pen. Who actually wants to try and save her county from the influx of immigration that has led to a huge uptick in terrorist attacks there, and the destruction of their own culture. While Macron, who her competitor in this election. His solution to this is to do nothing and to tell people to just get use to it as they are now part of their life.
Of course its easy for Macron, an old style aristocrat to do nothing, with him living away from the mess, living a highly lavish lifestyle in his expensive home. Because he does not need to experience what other who are not so lucky must deal with due to his decision-making.
Ignoring the corrupt media, which is trying to control who people vote for. I think there is a good chance La Pen could actually win. If she does, it would be interesting to see.
I should note here, that for all the complaining the US is doing about Russia’s influence in our election. The U.S. Does not seem to have any issues with trying to influence the election in France. But mark my words, if La Pen wins, The US will blame it on Russia.
I have lots of plans for our home. One such idea is for me to install some stone panels on the out side of the home. This is how the home looks right now.
Here kinda of the the idea I have behind one thing I want to do to the home.
This photo I edited really does not do it justice, its just to kind of help me see what it will look like when I do. I also, have not decided on the type of stone panel I will use. Not to mention I will be doing the same to the wall that is around the home to give it a well needed upgrade.
