There are a few minor items out there that we can’t ignore, but none of them is worth a full post. We’ll leave it up to you to decide what’s important.
1. Somehow — six months after his demise — there’s a new Jack Chick comic. You can read it online here: Adopted. It’s not about creationism, and it doesn’t seem to have Chick’s touch at all, but if you’re curious to see what his organization is putting out, click over there and take a look.
2. The Washington Examiner reports that Army secretary nominee Mark Green once called evolution a ‘bad argument’. They say:
Army secretary nominee Mark Green is being scrutinized for a 2015 speech in which he said his work as a doctor had led him to believe evolution was unproven. The former Army doctor told attendees at a church event in Cincinnati that he believed in the Bible’s account of how the Earth was created.
“The evolutionists have their bad argument, too,” Green said. “They say, ‘Well, I can’t explain how it went from this to incredibly complex, so it must have been billions of years.’ That’s kind of where they put their faith. The truth of the matter is — is the second law of thermo-fluid dynamics says that the world progresses from order to disorder not disorder to order.”
“If you put a lawn mower out in your yard and a hundred years come back, it’s rusted and falling apart. You can’t put parts out there and a hundred years later it’s gonna come back together. That is a violation of a law of thermodynamics. A physical law that exists in the universe,” Green added … .
Green serves as a Tennessee state senator and has yet to be confirmed by the Senate.
He sounds like an idiot, and we can’t imagine why Trump chose a physician to be Secretary of the Army.
3. Here’s an article from PhysOrg with a wealth of information you can’t find anywhere else: Physics of poo — why it takes you and an elephant the same amount of time.
That’s all we’ve got for the moment, so we’re declaring an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You wanna talk about Trump? Go ahead. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
The comments are open, dear reader. Have at it.
