Let’s face it

Let’s see the faces of our ancestors. We humans look like our ancestors. Aren’t we? I am not particularly fond of human species. But I am proud of some enlightened humans, among them are the scientists who tell us the truth about our universe and our evolution. Nothing is more beautiful and fascinating than the truth.
I hope science will free the minds of all humans from the bondage of superstition and ignorance.

Poor camels!



Modern camels probably descended from a cold-dwelling ancestor.

It is nice to see camels roam freely. It is not nice to see they still pull ploughs, turn waterwheels and transport tons of heavy goods along desert routes. Domesticated camels have been exploited by humans for thousands of years. They are forced to become slaves of humans. I wish I could let them free. They have the right to roam wherever they want.

You can halt publications of books on evolution. You can not halt evolution!

Daily News:

The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) has put a stop to the publication and sale of all books in its archives that support the theory of evolution, daily Radikal has reported.

The evolutionist books, previously available through TÜBİTAK’s Popular Science Publications’ List, will no longer be provided by the council.

The books have long been listed as “out of stock” on TÜBİTAK’s website, but their further publication is now slated to be stopped permanently.

You are not Turkey’s religious council. You are Turkey’s Scientific and Technical Research Council and you have stopped publishing the books on evolution! I am shocked! You should be ashamed of yourself! Don’t say that you do not believe in evolution!

Nothing is worse than the decision that scientists make to stop believing in science. They can drag society backwards more than the religious bigots.

Men lost their spines.

Humans lost their penile spines during millions of years of evolution.

People believed ‘humans evolved smooth penises as a result of adopting a more monogamous reproductive strategy than their early human ancestors. Those ancestors may have used penile spines to remove the sperm of competitors when they mated with females.’ But it is not the reason for losing penile spines. Researchers recently found that the chunks of DNA that had been lost from the human genome but not the chimp genome, was the reason. [Read more...]

That Grandmothers Were Crucial for Human Evolution!

Grandmothering was the initial step toward making us who we are.

For years, anthropologists and evolutionary biologists have struggled to explain the existence of menopause, a life stage that humans do not share with our primate relatives. Why would it be beneficial for females to stop being able to have children with decades still left to live? [Read more...]
