We have about 98% commonality with chimps


This is correct TS.
Homo Sapiens and Homo Troglodytes (Chimpanzees) share the same DNA with a difference of only 2%, give or take a decimal point or two.

I have an easier time welcoming Homo Troglodytes into the inner circle of what defines humans than accepting corporations into personhood.

I am reading "The Third Chimpanzee".
Written over ten years ago, some topics within the book are slightly dated, but overall it's well worth anyone's time.

Common sense is one of those terms that everyone thinks applies to their own way of thinking.
Political correctness is a term that applies to the act of not being a jerk to others.

Had the chance to meet Robert Waite today. We spent a pleasant afternoon over a few beers with my long suffering husband (who took the picture).

We can now vouch for each other's realness.



After a relaxing 8 hour drive, I'm finally at home again.
Thank you Esme and Terry for an afternoon of good conversation, plenty of laughs and just a small amount of gossip.

I was thrilled at the opportunity to meet over a few pints and I hope to do it again.

PS: Esme is much taller than I imagined. Couple that with her sharp intellect and she really is the full package.

She should have had the extra breast installed on her back.
Yeah, it would look funny but she'd be fun to dance with.

A few scant years of awareness sandwiched between two eternities of oblivion.
I don't think a carved stone will mean anything to anyone...
unless it's giving directions to the nearest pub.

PS: My favorite book of all time is probably 'The Grapes of Wrath' by John Steinbeck.

Everyone should read this book while making comparisons to the way modern neo-cons are treating the masses.

I started reading Science fiction in '69 and am still an avid fan.
I use it to calm myself after reading more serious books like 'The World According to Monsanto' by Marie-Monique Robin.
I'm into the 4th chapter and it's one of the most frightening books ever.
I knew Monsanto is evil before buying this book, but the depth of evil is shocking.

Because I have been 'labeled' as racist for discussing things as I see them.


If you see things in a racist manner and say those things in a racist manner, then maybe you are a duck.

Nor did I Bill.
This CONservative/reform party is a throwback to the McCarthy era of subversives hiding everywhere.

Was it in his book A Pale Blue Dot that Sagan bemoaned the growth of pseudoscience due to the way it deflected people from real scientific inquiry?

And the only people that will understand molecular biology are people that have studied it in university. And the people that have studied molecular biology in university won't read a book that has "God" in the title of the book because the world of science doesn't allow scientists to talk about God or Religion. Therefore, the book would almost be pointless. The general public just won't understand a book about molecular biology.


I feel that I must disagree with this Johnney Guinness.
A book founded on solid science would be read by the scientific community even if you called it 'The Big Book of God Stuff That's Really, Really Real and How I Came to Discover and Decode it in the Human Genome and then had a nice Holiday at the Beach.'

I helped do this one as well.
The studio was rather warm.
You can hear it closing in.
They were a few thousand dollars worth of Senns.
Very warm ribbon mikes.
Yeah, I did that.

Little Red.


In 1966 you were nine years old. This is no different than your claim of contributing to creation of the sound of the band Steppenwolf.

Since you are answering questions in here... What roll did you play in the Apollo moon landings?

Its the same in every single nation on Earth. The "God" people were always there just waiting for us to arrive so they could have some fun playing God, with us!


Hello JG
You've got me wondering where the "God" people went after we took over the planet.
Are they hiding underground?
Did they all leave Earth?
Did we kill them?
