It’s finally done.
I’m not sure if I want to do something this detailed again for a while, but this was an idea I’d had for a really long while and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
“The Volunteer Library Brigade is rolling out to the sidewalks, parks, and subway stations of New York City. These small teams will set up tiny mobile library carts in public spaces around the city and do on site volunteer library work. They will look stuff up, hand out books, do storytime for kids, offer directions, advocate for libraries, and more. The carts will have reference books, maps, giveaways, wifi, and free ebook downloads.”
This rules. Sign up to volunteer at the link.
515. Students: love ‘em or hate ‘em, you’re not allowed to hit ‘em with a shovel.
535. Pets are always a great help in times of stress. And in times of starvation too, of course.
572. Courage, bravery and the indomitable human spirit were fine things which nevertheless tended to take second place to the combination of courage, bravery, the indomitable human spirit and a six-to-one superiority of numbers. (suggested by idrabear)
What episod is this from, and where can I watch it for free?
Post with 1 note
This needs to be said by someone who isn’t going to get worked up about the issue for the wrong reason.
Evolution is a Theory, not a fact.
Creationists often use this as their rallying cry and then claim that their beliefs are of equal scientific validity.
Here’s the thing, science isn’t a ‘true-false’ sort of deal, there are levels of truth determined by the nature of the concept. Let’s look at two:
Law: There is plenty of empirical evidence showing that this is true, and no possible way to disprove it. (Gravity is pretty irrefutable).
Theory: There is enough empirical evidence that we can be very sure that this is true, but at the same time there is a chance that it could be disproven.
So, is creationism either one of these?
No. The amount of empirical evidence supporting any creationist theory is minuscule, and there is enough circumstantial evidence to cast the ‘creation of all living things in a single moment’ idea into doubt. The only evidence biblical creationism has going for it is a centuries old book that has been retranslated so many times it only paints a general picture of the original message. The only people who use old texts to determine empirical facts are historians, and they aren’t considered scientists for a reason.
Creationism lacks the evidence to even be entertained by scientists, and trying to fit its square peg into the triangular hole of seeming scientific validity doesn’t change that, so I must ask creationists to stop butting in on discussions about paleontology or demanding that creationism be taught in science classrooms.
Don’t act so smug Darwinists, you’re not off the hook.
When Biblical Creationists start talking about their beliefs Darwinists go a little nuts. This serves no purpose but to start an irrational argument in which both sides come out angry, offended, and even more convinced that they’re right and the other is wrong.
Instead of getting angry be rational, understand why creationism is not valid science and explain it to the creationist. After this one of three things will happen: there will be a debate in which neither side raises their voice, the creationist will go berserk and look like the unreasonable one, or the subject is no longer discussed. All of these options are better than losing your temper and looking like a belligerent person who doesn’t know what they’re talking about, and makes evolutionists seem less dick-ish
