Eccentric ailurophile former drifter.

I really like walking, always something new to see. Many days I catch the sunrise and the sunset. Road trips too.

Passionate writer.

Not bored yet.

Studies reveal cell phones.. [youtu.be]
Druvius comments on Jul 26, 2018:
She neglects to mention that the effects found were miniscule, there's been no increase in human cancers correlating with the enormous increase in cell phone use the past few decades, and no one has yet even found a mechanism by which non-ionizing radiation could damage living tissue. Basically the risk of cancer from your cell phone is negligible. The comparison to tobacco is where one knows she is going to go off the rails. While the tobacco industry denied the health effects, the massive rise in lung cancer and emphysema caused by cigarettes was raising alarm bells in the medical community by the thirties. Decades after the explosion in cell phone use there has been no corresponding spike in any health effect possibly caused by them.

Archaeologist please form analysis and argument. [youtube.com]
Druvius comments on Jul 14, 2018:
Well, the problem is that there is nothing about the pyramid's construction that archeologists see any need to ascribe to anything other than human ingenuity and engineering. There's other logical problems with the ancient aliens hypothesis too. They managed to do all this without leaving a single artifact? And there are all sorts of knowledge they could have imparted that would have left unmistakeable evidence, but they didn't. Basically to buy into the alien hypothesis requires all sorts of confirmation bias and special pleading. If any new evidence ever comes to light, I will gladly examine it when the time comes. Also, as a codicil, ancient aliens is at the core a racist theory. The implication is these brown people couldn't have figured all this out on their own. It's the modern version of the Atlantis theory, which was blatantly racist.

In the USA now the mainstream media enthusiastically toes the line, and the population eats it up. Scary times.

Most of my current town are Trump voters, they are just normal human beings who voted for Trump because they know they've been getting screwed for decades, and Clinton promised more of the same. It still surprises me (it shouldn't) how often I meet a coastal liberal who insists anyone who voted for Trump is a knuckle-dragging racist idiot. Yes, there are those, but most Trump voters are just hard working decent people.

The sad thing is it wouldn't really take much. If the Palestinians were offered a viable independent state on the West Bank, an apology of some sort for the Nakba, and guaranteed access (Like an international zone) to the Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem, it would do the trick. Would it end terrorism overnight, of course not. But it would give the vast majority of Palestinians more than they ever dreamed of, and every incentive to forge peace with Israel. Alas Israel has never offered anything resembling that, and is unlikely to do so as long as the US gives them unqualified support.

Do you think that one day humans will travel to another galaxy ?
Druvius comments on Jun 23, 2018:
If civilization survives and technology continues to advance, it's entirely possible. If one can build a spaceship capable of constant 1g acceleration, and that's just an engineering problem, humans could explore the universe in a human lifetime. The catch is ... a lifetime for people on the ship. Relativity means that billions of years will pass outside the ship, so if the travelers returned to Earth billions of years will have passed. One way trip basically.
Koko the gorilla that used sign language has died, she was 46 and died in her sleep.
Druvius comments on Jun 23, 2018:
A little, but not much. 35-40 in wild, 50 or more in captivity. And while she was great for gorilla publicity, the idea that she "mastered" sign language is misleading at best. She knew a lot of symbols and was adept at communicating with them, but she, nor any animal has ever shown any ability to comprehend grammar, IE string words together to make sentences. Why humans quickly master this and nothing else does is still not understood.

They aren't a threat to scholars, because no such finds have ever been made. Nineteenth century reports are all fabrications. If such are ever found by science, they would be studied, not hidden. Oddly enough, mastodon skeletons superficially resemble a giant "human" skeleton, and their skulls if viewed from the wrong way superficially ressemble a one eyed "human" skull. It's been conjectured such discoveries by the ancients are the origin of giant/cyclops myths. There's even a case where ancient Greeks carefully interred a skeleton of a mammoth as a "human" burial.

NASA only much later started trying to reclaim all the Lunar material returned from the Moon.

Yeah, it's a story that requires multiple layers of special pleading to take literally. A wooden ship that size would break up in normal waters, so God had to have strengthened it somehow. And no one else had a boat? And no evidence of a global flood, they'd figured that one out by 1830. Biblical literalists are unfazed by facts sadly.
