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.

Will chat about almost anything except sportsball and celebrities. 😉

I find it curious that so many conflicting reports were used to explain the discovery of fossil ...
Druvius comments on Jun 21, 2018:
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.

Druvius comments on Jun 12, 2018:
Don't know the specifics, but do know from prior readings that in the years after the first landing a lot of lunar material was handed out for PR purposes more or less willy nilly. So it's entirely possible that her case has merit, IE the sample might well have been given to her legitimately at the time. NASA only much later started trying to reclaim all the Lunar material returned from the Moon.

Druvius comments on Jun 11, 2018:
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.

Meh. He's right, we can't talk to chimps or any other animal. That's because somewhere in that 1.5% difference is the ability to tell the difference between "Man bites dog" and "Dog bites man." If other animals had language, we would most definitely talk to them. And while Niel might not wonder what worms and other animals are thinking, plenty of scientists and lay people are. He's a smart guy, but these are sophomoric speculations.

It was all just speculation. Chimps do have a sense of fairness if that's what is meant by moral agency. My suspicion is that higher functions like spiritualism follow language, they don't precede it. Primates definitely do not have language though, that is limited to humans.

Druvius comments on May 6, 2018:
This makes little sense. The benefits of things like weather, communication, and other satellites vastly outweighs the costs of getting them into orbit. If it cost 2.4 times as much on Earth to get payloads into space it might have slowed space exploration some, but certainly wouldn't have prevented it. As for star travel, .2c seems feasible with current technology, bringing flight times down to decades for nearby stars. Humans started buildimg cathedrals they knew wouldn't be finished for centuries. Star travel might be slow, but that wouldn't stop humans or aliens.

There's no evidence for a pre human civilization, but it's not impossible, and this study just clarifies what any scientist seeking evidence for same should look for.

None have been found yet, but but this study may encourage scientists to look further. Seems unlikely, but certainly can't be ruled out.
