    Old ugarit Adam and Eve cuneiform sheds light on Genesis origin according to publishers and further background info needed...

    I'm going to do a refresher on General Relativity and see if I can't eke out an Idiot's Guide like I did for SR. Of course, by refresher course, I mean watching one of MIT's lecture series. Oh, speaking of which, the 2013 Quantum Mechanics course by Allan Adams is a different class. People...

    Damn you, James. Don't I have enough rabbit-holes to go down already? :D :D :D :D :D

    Not a fan of how this has been worded: "Poincaré had discovered the first instance of chaos, a phenomenon whose outcome can effectively disconnect from how it began." That's almost the opposite of correct. In a chaotic system, it's precisely how it began that determines the outcome. indeed...

    Yeah. This is one of those rare occasions in which I don't actually know anybody who might have some specialist insight. Usually, I can pin down somebody to ask about a subject, but this is an incredibly narrow field. I wouldn't even know where to begin. Frankly, were I genuinely searching for...

    Indeed. Part one (as it quickly became evident that this was going to be) here: https://www.hackenslash.co.uk/2021/05/the-dark-is-already-there.html Cladistic paradox challenge accepted and met.

    The evil pedant in me wants to say that it's likely he was right, since the cumulative evidence available strongly suggest that Socrates was somebody Plato invented as a didactic device. But I won't, because that would be cruel. :D

    Not my place to reveal, since @Sparhafoc goes by a different moniker there, but: I have to say, this inline pasting of images is something about the new LoR I really like. Let me share one of the fruits of yesterday's labour. My diagram-fu has really come on.

    Macroevolution vs Variation within Kinds - What's the difference really??

    There's a better approach to this, which is to talk about how macroevolution is discussed in the literature. To do otherwise is to risk running into difficulty due to ambiguity. A shining example of this is how, by treating macroevolution as the accumulation of micro, it paints a misleading...

    Shinies! Spent most of today making diagrams. Probably just short of halfway through the piece on warp drives. I've also been faced with an interesting challenge by @Sparhafoc :)

    What is Atheism?

    I agree, that's just daft. My contention is only that no burden is shouldered in the negating position. That statement is internally contradictory anyway, because it defines a standard in the enjoinder not present in the declarative, i.e., it's insisting on a fully deductive support for in...

    What is Atheism?

    Certainly. It's about how the proposition is formulated. That is, in fact, why formal debate is structure the way it is, with the affirmative going first, so that he can attempt to fulfil the onus, with the negating position's work being to grill the affirmative to find the flaws. Of course...

    What is Atheism?

    I disagree with this. The burden of proof is always on the affirmative claim. If you think about it, it could hardly be otherwise. If you were to declare that the Oort cloud* is composed entirely of teddy bears, and I say 'no, it bloody well isn't', have I shouldered a burden of proof? Of...

    What is Atheism?

    I delivered my thoughts on this some years ago. Possibly I should go back and see if there are things I'd say differently now, but here it is anyway: https://www.hackenslash.co.uk/2016/05/are-babies-atheists-semantics-and.html I do recall that one of the critical things I talk about there is...

    Oooh, shiny! Worth noting that the failure to deal with baryon acoustic oscillations has been the fatal flaw in every proposed alternative to the Lambda-CDM model.

    Just a thought, in case it helps... On my blog, I had feedback form several readers who loved the content but struggled with the colour scheme. I tried several iterations, but couldn't hit on one that worked for everybody, so I based the current design on the Gaussian principle and (and this is...
