Rokcet, who still can't access the board, sent this along this morning. Really? It must be his computer, surely. I thought we hadn't heard from him for a while. Good of him to send this though. http://discovermagazine.com/1997/sep/thethirdman1220/ The basic facts about human origins are pretty much...

Hi Ish....I made it! The author is not even religious, although admittedly the review of the book is written by a Christian which, last time I looked, was not a crime. He (Berlinski) is a secular Jew, a self-described agnostic, and by his own admission — a crank. What Berlinsky means is, despite th...

Ish, are you saying that the “missing links” everybody is looking for are physical ones when the real differences are mental? Actually, I wasn't. It was just me trying to be clever with a play on words. And your concern about “cognition” goes to the need for us to worship something. That need is fu...
