    So the secret of happiness is a post-it note?

    Or perhaps something about climate change.

    Carl Sagan did talk about the danger and possible consequences of nuclear war but he never claimed it was “inevitable” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6oZuj3Hgb4). So does your “rabid” attack mean that you disagree, that you think nuclear war is not dangerous? And what does any of that have to do with atheism? Your statement is based on a distortion of the truth and your conclusion is a non-sequitur. You should get a job with Fox News.

    Is that why his teeth are so long?

    According to a Pew Research Center Poll in 2009 6 percent of scientists are republicans and 55 percent are democrats. Climate change deniers and creationists are overwhelmingly republican (even including many politicians). So the implication of your comment that she is a democrat is a bit incomprehensible to me. Unless you are a “scientific creationist” (an oxymoron if there ever was one).

    As a retired biology professor I just want to make a correction. This has nothing to do with your discussion about bankers which can stand on its own, but only about the definition of parasites. Parasites are BY definition harmful to the host. If an organism is beneficial to the host it is by definition a mutualist. A relationship in which the host is neither harmed or helped is called commensalism. All three types of relationship, parasitism, mutualism and commensalism are considered to be different forms of symbiosis (literally, “living together”). Of course these are the textbook definitions and the real world is a bit messier. Parasites can, for example, evolve to become less virulent over time – if that benefits the parasite. It is even possible that a parasitic relationship might evolve into commensalism or mutualism. But that probably doesn’t happen very often.
