    well, at least the Bermudez siblings are doing something together instead against each other

    I did not know this. Who said you cannot learn from a comic strip?

    Punctuated equilibrium is a refinement of Darwin’s idea that species change slowly over time to became news species. Gould said that species tended to stay about the same for long periods until something forces a sudden change in the population, such as sudden climate change, epidemics, or new predators. My suspicion is that Darwin understood this perfectly well but kept things simple because of all the resistance he knew he was going to get for his whole concept of evolution through natural selection. (This is for you, emjaycee.)

    I’ve seen them cooperate often, and I really like Baldo’s support of his little sister. These two really love each other.

    Thanks. And now the wingnut creationists are going to start oozing onto this board.

    … maybe we’ll be lucky and they won’t find it until tomorrow… or later. I think today’s strip is delightful.

    i am one of those creationists, here to tell you when Gould proposed this model he took more fire from the Evo camp than from the Creationists, they hated the concept that “change” was shown to happen quickly – which goes contrary to their pre-conceived notion deep time needed for evolution to proceed.

    wow, you will defend evolution as a whole -irreguardless. [just as I will defend creation] What you support is micro-evolution – as do I. Obviously we see minor changes. But the whole sale change of one family to a different family of organism by this method is a very large pill for me to swallow. Small changes can in no way ADD the millions of bit of genetic information required to change a reptile into mammal – I don’t care how much time you allow. WE both know to you – mutations are magic bullet propelled by time that makes a statistically impossible series of events possible. Your model – is not possible even if this planet were 4.7 billions of years old – or even 4.7 trillions of years old.

    … they’d rather BELIEVE and forcefully inflict — intentionally, and with obvious malice — their belief-structure on the rest of us.
    They’re the spiritual equivalent of pigeons… but they lack the pigeons’ innocence, and soul, kindness, and decency…. and they can’t fly!
