21 April 2018. Science and Religion Don’t Argue… Just Because Fundies Don’t Like Science Doesn’t Mean the Rest of Us Are Like That

00 Charles Darwin humanity 210418

This is what Darwin taught. The rightwingers hate this. What does that tell you about them?

________________________

Several trolls attempted to draw me into certain subjects that appear controversial. Let me give a simple straightforward reply. If anyone tells you or asserts that the earth is only about 10,000 years old, that the species didn’t evolve from a common ancestor, or that the Book of Genesis is in any way literally true, don’t bother to listen to them about anything, no matter what else they may try to tell you. Fundamentalists almost always miss the meaningful reality of the Genesis stories. Once we recognise theology as a search for meaning and not an immutable expression of a concrete reality, we begin to grasp the meaning in these stories. Until that time, sheer ideology traps our theology.

Editor:

By the way, Patriarch Kirill agrees with Vladyki Lazar, not his detractors. In his words, “Genesis isn’t a textbook on anthropogenesis”. The loudmouth konvertsy rightwingers not only distort what our true archpastors actually teach, they make a mockery of Christ and His Church. They’ve refused to reject their evangelical rot…

17 November 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. Score One for Darwin

Score One for Darwin

Sergei Yolkin

******

A rightwing nutter in the RF Gosduma introduced a bill to outlaw Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. It’s going nowhere fast; Putin’s not behind it, neither is HH. It’s like a crackbrained proposal to label Lenin’s works “extremist”… some rightwing ROCOR loons got Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral to sign on to it. He should just quietly back out of it… that’d fix the Vlasovtsy good for such BS, wouldn’t it?

Of course, if socially-close individuals “yawn together”, and the chimp “yawns together” with Darwin, that means that the chimp is related to Darwin, thus, proving the Theory of the Evolution of Species… QED. Another multilayered Yolkin jest…

According to research published in the journal PLoS ONE, “infectious” yawning in chimpanzees and bonobos, like in humans, can depend on how socially close two individuals are to each other.

The “Grandma Hypothesis”

American anthropologists showed that grandmothers played a significant role in the evolution of mankind, by using a mathematical model simulating the life of a tribe of apes for 60,000 years.
