    God did design some interesting critters.

    And some pretty hilarious ones. I should think there is still ambrosia coming down the divine nose every time a sociology student graduates, or a chihuahua is born.

    Don’t even mention the platypus – he’ll have you put away.

    “It’s true, Chief! But if we come back in 100 years only the naked bipeds, kudzu, and cockroaches will be left.”

    First I marveled that they happened to notice endangered creatures in particular. Then I realized that these are among the largest land animals. Maybe the telescope isn’t strong enough.

    At least the houses will be well insulated:

    I recently re-read a 2008 article in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC stating that increased CO2 in the atmosphere will help increase the potency of the irritant in poison ivy. Let’s hope it doesn’t blend genes with kudzu! We’d have one big “Itchory Garden” or a “Garden of Itchin.” I’ll stop now.

    Evolution has led to the existence of some interesting creatures.

    Hard to sample the fungi with a telescope!

    Another Republican who pretends science doesn’t exist.

    I always wondered about the Christian Scientists.

    Meaning no disrespect, but this reminds me of something when I was about 7 years old. I walked often to our library about eight blocks distant, and on the way was a newly built “First Church of Christ, Scientist.” Every time I passed, I vividly imagined Jesus in a laboratory, peering into a microscope.

    Just wait until talks about some of the humans he seen at a placed called ‘Walmart’ . He will get locked away as a nut then for sure.
