Stupid Design

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History and Visiting Research Scientist and Lecturer at Princeton University. He is also a regular on PBS.

Here he responds to the standard assertion of the Teleological Argument that 'some phenomena within nature exhibit such exquisiteness of structure, function or interconnectedness that many people have found it natural - if not inescapable - to see a deliberative and directive mind behind those phenomena.'

Youtube, another great excuse to get broadband as soon as possible.

this blog is almost channeling my thoughts at the moment. The only thing holding me back from embracing evolution a little bit more is... 'blondes', and women in general. They seem to well designed to be a product of evolution.

I am getting my head around the concept and will blog my findings soon. I'm currently reading a book charting the history of the 'blonde' and offers some interesting reasons as to why women have developed into the way they are by natural selection.

Oh, by the way, I've been blogging over at my site. aintchristian.blogspot.com

Yes, your blog well plugged...as if by accident. ;p

I'll pop by and rip into your posts eventually. I did leave a comment questioning your sexuality...did you see it?

Plugged! That'd be a shameless act and I'm horrified by the accusation.

Yes, I saw your comment on my sexuality. For more sex... check out my BLOG!
