Bill Nye Explains Evolution With Emojis

Dancing Twins = Reproduction? I Guess I Can Roll With It

Bill Nye has been on an evolution-education kick lately. First, last week, he went on Newsmax’s “MidPoint” to talk about his vehement opposition to creationism being taught in public schools, or at all, to young children. When asked if creationism is making kids less intelligent, he responded:

“Absolutely. They’re holding the kids back. These kids will not be able to participate in the future. Because they will not have this fundamental idea that you can use skeptical thought to learn about nature. They will have to suppress everything they see in nature in order to try and get a worldview that’s compatible with the adults, in whom they trust.”

Creationist Darek Isaacs Asks: “If Evolution Is True, Is Rape Wrong?”

Creationist Darek Isaacs Asks: "If Evolution Is True, Is Rape Wrong?"
Edgy Question, Creationist Bro!

Where is Neil deGrasse Tyson when you need him? Because I’d love to see the astrophysicist and “Cosmos” host give Creationist Darek Isaacs a verbal beatdown for comments he made during an online broadcast on Monday positing that evolutionary theory excuses rape.

According to Raw Story, during an episode of “Creation Today,” Isaacs said that he had read a lot of work by “purveyors of evolutionary thought” and found himself in a “very, very dark place.”

“You have to start asking questions,” he explained. “Well, if evolution is true, and it’s just all about the male propagating their DNA, we had to ask hard questions, like, well, is rape wrong?” Keep reading »

16 Mind-Blowing Quotes From "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" (So Far)

“Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” Neil deGrasse Tyson’s reboot of Carl Sagan’s 1980s’ television documentary series, “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” is, so far, one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring shows I’ve ever watched. (Seriously, watching it I was more excited and moved than this little girl.) Jetting around in Tyson’s “Ship of the Imagination” — “free from the shackles of space and time” — “Cosmos” explores the origins of the universe and life itself, explained in a way that is both comprehensible and absolutely mind-blowing, alongside visuals that stun. As Tyson has said, “The universe is in us … Many people look up at the sky and they feel small. But I feel big. Because my atoms came from those stars.” Click on for just 15 of the most profound quotes from “Cosmos” first two episodes and then actually watch them in full on Hulu. You won’t regret it.

How Humans Figured Out The Connection Between Sex And Babies

I’m a big fan of Slate’s “Explainer” column, which enlists experts to answer those questions that boggle the mind. Oh, how this appeals to my inner science geek. Like when they explained why the rich and famous sunbathe topless. The answer: Because they can. Ha! OK, back to the question that caught my attention: How did humans figure out that sex makes babies? Ooh, good one! An abridged version of the answer after the jump. Keep reading »

Men And Women Starting To Look More Alike

The androgynous look isn’t just a thing that popped up in the 1970s and comes back in vogue every few years. Apparently, it’s an evolutionary fact. Researchers at North Carolina State University (go Wolfpack!) studied Spanish and Portuguese skulls from now, as well as hundreds dating back all the way to 16th century. And it looks like over time, male and female skulls have come to look much more similar than they used to. Why? Apparently while both genders’ skulls looked different, the female skulls showed the most change. Over time, women’s facial structures have gotten larger, probably because of better nutrition. Ahhh, so this explains the Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber phenomenon. [Newser, Science Daily] Keep reading »
