Science Media Tolerates Silliness
March 29, 2019
As long as you are a secular Darwinian, you can get away with anything. Are Aliens Ignoring Us? Maybe We’re Already Their Captives in a ‘Galactic Zoo’ (Live Science).

Carnivorous Plants Show Attention to Detail
March 26, 2019
Two plants that baffled Darwin are best admired for their design than for their evolution. Most people have seen the hinged snap-shut cages of the Venus flytrap.

The Extrapolation Fallacy in Evolutionary Storytelling
March 8, 2019
The assumption of universal common ancestry can lead to absurd scientific reasoning. Humans have culture. Insects show cooperative behavior. Therefore, human culture evolved from insect behavior.
