Yeah to sponges.  Wow.

Most sophisticated voters on this planet ;-)  Most sponges are artificial, like most voters.  They were never alive.

But sponges were really the first complex animal life on the planet.  So give them their due respect.  We wouldn't be here without them.

And without them, no clean bathrooms.

Those aren't the same sponges.   I mean the first ones that developed inhalation of seawater to filter food.

Fads in anthropology, though we are getting closer to the truth, thanks to effective peer review and criticism of sacred cows ...

Are you still trying to deal with Baruch on a rational basis?  Good luck with that.

Some may still use sponges as a anti-pregnancy device.  Rational = I only accept the ratio between integers.  Irrational numbers aren't real.

Irrational numbers are just as "real" as the real numbers and the complex numbers - and quaternions and octonions.

You make Pythagoras cry ;-(  Negative numbers and zero are heresy too.  Only positive integers and their ratios are ... eternal forms.  Just ask Plato.

This is a good explanation of evolution:



Quote
As a scientific concept, evolution was revolutionary when it was first introduced. With the help of all three of our hosts and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s new Deep Time Hall, we’ll try to explain how evolution actually works and how we came to understand it.

Yeah, those dang tourists sure get in a fellow's way, huh? But they spend money, so what's a guy to do?

I don't get any of that money, I live in nearby Maryland.  Mostly, none of us go to DC in the Summer.  I even just watch the Mall fireworks on TV.
