In order of priority: in a relationship for over 40 years, father, grand-father, pragmatist, retired, avid cyclist, relies on what can be observed and proven objectively.

    Slow as heck. Like Dawkins said in his book (The Greatest Show on Earth, I think…) each living being is similar to his genitors. If you had a series of family pictures going back billions of years, everyone on any one of the pictures would be identical as a species to their parents and their offspring. Yet go back far enough and you will find a fish, whose parents and offspring are fish.

    In the short term, get a snorkel, in the longer term, have my nostrils slowly migrate to the top of my head…

    A reference on the item concerning the oil tax, Energy: A human History by Richard Rhodes. Good reading if you want details on the never ending human quest for power sources.

    Talk about an evolutionary tour de force. Land mammals all share a common fish ancestor, yet a land mammal species adapted back to the sea and gave rise to whales. Whales closest relative on land is believed to be the hippo. They share a common land mammal ancestor that lived around 50 million years ago. Isn’t science neat! Yes I’m some sort of nerd… and I read Moby Dick as a teenager and loved it. If I close my eyes I can still see Queequeg like he’s standing right before me.

    You open a very controversial topic, you do! How do we measure intelligence? While we are born with natural inherited intelligence, our environment and experience do influence how “smart” we are.

    I brought a bag lunch to high school. We were taught to make our own and my mother encouraged us to bring back the bag if it was still intact. She was a recycling visionary or had lived through the depression, or both.

    We’re talking about little kids here. What I was trying to say in a clumsy way is that parents who tutor their kids pre-school and send them in a grade or two ahead of everyone else are missing the boat. Better to properly socialize them and send them in on par with everyone else. Of course life takes care of blowhards and showoffs eventually.
