Private schools in Pakistan are protesting Malala Yousafzai. She is being attacked for such things as defending the free speech of authors, a spokesperson on a panel in Pakistan said, "“It is clear that Malala has a nexus with Salman Rushdie and is aligned with his club,”"
Oh, yes, because it is much better to be part of the nexus that suborned murder for the writing of novel...

This is a good example of the troubles that conservative Islam causes in these so-called Islamic 'republics'. We should give our utmost support to brave activists like Malala, and one of the best ways of doing this is to stop capitulating to Islamism. Islamophobia is a theocratic term used to silence dissenters opposed to the doctrines of Islam, we must not give in to such fatuity. We must maintain the principle of free expression, not only to continue to live in a free and open society- but so people like Malala can have a safer place to voice their vital opinions.

Creationists strike again of vestigal organs: blog.drwile.com/?p=5583

And again these are more examples of evolution: www.sciencedaily.com/releases/…

This is getting old, ‘vestigial’ doesn’t mean ‘not being used for something else now’.

I plan to devote at least two hours a day updating this as I thought it was a shame  that other people  did not get to see  all of my research.

 so it would be a pleasure  if you would add it to your group

Ben Affleck, what a twit. He needs to learn what an inductive argument is, and stop throwing out slogans for the intellectually lacking, yet horrifyingly trendy--new-liberal etiquette. www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeHvMZ…

Check this out: blog.drwile.com/?p=12953#more-…
"Since we now know that the pelvis in a whale is “a critical component of male, and possibly female, reproductive fitness,” the most reasonable interpretation from a scientific viewpoint is that it is not vestigial. It is a critical part of the anatomy."
But he doesn't understand that it too is a product of evolution
From an article he cited
news.usc.edu/68144/whale-repro…
"Finally, they compared the size of the pelvic bones (relative to body size) to the size of the animal’s testis (again, relative to body size). The results were clear: The bigger the relative testis, the bigger the relative pelvic bone — meaning that more competitive mating environments seem to drive the evolution of larger pelvic bones. Males from more promiscuous species also evolve larger penises, so larger pelvic bones appear necessary to attach larger muscles for penis control."
So it is simply more proof of evolution.
Not only that he doesn't seem to get that a vestigial organ can have a different even critical purpose...but it can be still rudimentary and no-longer fulfill it's original purpose in comparison to it's original organ.
