From Friends – rather sumarises the stupidity of the current Intellegant Design debate in America!
Ross: Some of these fossils are over 200m years old
Feebee: OK, look, before you start I’m not denying evolution, I’m just saying it’s one of the possibilities
Ross: It’s the only possibility Feebee
Feebee: Ok Ross, could you just open your mind like this much? Now, wasn’t there a time when the brightest minds in the world believed the earth was flat? And up until like 50 years ago you all thought the atom was the smallest thing until you like split it open and this whole mess of crap came out. Now, are you telling me that you are so unbelievably arrogant that you can’t admit that there’s a teeny, tiny possibility that you could be wrong about this?
Sorry for no updates.. I’ve been busy writing an essay on Mark 1:4-15 which I’ve now put up on my website… I got rather involved in it and so it’s ended up being about 4300 words long! Oops.
Some highlights of the week: Tuesday evening I went out to formal with about 30 students from Eden. We all went back to Widge’s new room afterwards. On the way into the hall I heard one of the ‘bouncers’ say to the other “Oi Steve, why’s no-one bringing any wine in?”.
Saw Jens on Wednesday lunch, and met up with Liz, Lydia and Emma on Thursday lunch – I’ve not really seen any of them in far too long.
I met up with Cheng-shi, Rachel and Barney on Thursday afternoon to play badminton for a few hours. That evening, Tabs and myself went round to Liz’s and sat around chatting and messing around for quite a while. Unfortunately I had quite a bad headache which continued all through Friday so I just lay in bed all day reading and finishing my essay. I finished “Treasure Island” as well. At 9:30 in the evening, Ellie gave a wonderful concert with her Flute in the chapel, and Emma and some other people played in it as well. Went back to bed but couldn’t really sleep. Today I’m feeling much better though, which is nice!
Tomorrow evening I’ll be going to see Led Zeppelin tribute band Let Zep at the Junction with Zishan and quite a few other second years. Apparently they’re meant to be really good but I’ll tell you when I’ve heard them.
Also found this comparison of Why DNA is better than perl.
