If You Believe in Evolution

Do you ever wonder what our current lifestyles are doing to the evolutionary line? The chemicals we've ingested over the decades changing our physical features along with our body's chemistry, not to mention the combinations of foodstuffs provided to us changing our DNA. What about our sedentary lifestyle? We pay money to walk on treadmills and lift weights without work, yet most of us today couldn't carry out the average work day of 100 years ago, much less the strength diligence and stamina to stay alive during the trek across the continents. I can remember playing when I was a child, running and jumping. I can still remember a vague feeling that I was meant to do this sort of thing, that if I just DID and didn't THINK I could fairly fly. Years (decades) later I witness 'Freerunning' and that thought came flooding back to my memory, "I was RIGHT!" And of course I was, these are the very abilities that brought us from where we were (bottom of the food chain) to where we are (the top of the food chain).

Chimpanzees have an extraordinary photographic memory that is far superior to ours, research suggests.

The Center for Public Integrity

The 380,000-plus-word database presented here allows, for the first time, the Iraq-related public pronouncements of top Bush administration officials to be tracked on a day-by-day basis against their private assessments and the actual “ground truth” as it is now known. Throughout the database, passages containing false statements by the top Bush administration officials are highlighted in yellow. The 935 false statements in the database may also be accessed by selecting the “False Statements” option from the “Subject” pull-down menu and may be displayed within selected date ranges using the selection tool below. Searches may also be limited by person or subject, or both, by using the appropriate selections from the pull-down menus.
