Lovely posts. I am enjoying this so much. Agree entirely with you, Maude. Btw, I find your logic yet another reason to be vegetarian. It's just an extension on not wanting to be a cannibal. Nothing wrong with a bloodless meal so long as it tastes good and actually has protein in it.

LOL! Well, as for Keith Galloway's argument, he seems to place great emphasis on "HUMAN" DNA. Perhaps he is not well-read. Judging from the one very glaring grammatical error in his post, I assume he isn't well-read. So perhaps poor Keith didn't follow up very well on the results of the human genome project, and following up would require being somewhat well-read. Therefore, perhaps Keith isn't aware that there is nothing special or extraordinary about "human" DNA. Perhaps he needs to comprehend that this special "human" DNA is less than a hair's breadth in difference from the non-special DNA of the field mouse-a rodent. Human DNA is quite mundane and ordinary when considered relative to the DNA of other critters.
 
I don't know, I am just speculating but it would seem more believable to me if the proponents of ID could point to some spectacular difference between "human" and other DNA. Right now, we are pretty close to the average rodent. Actually, I am gratified by that. Rodents are quite resilient in nature. I would be happy if it were found that human DNA is similar to the DNA of a virus. We all know how adaptable viruses are! That would be great!
 
There is just nothing scientifically so special about humans. I happen to like it that way.




Start the year off right. Easy ways to stay in shape in the new year.
