Unitarians mark birth of evolutionist Darwin
Unitarian Universalist fellowships in East Falmouth and Chatham are commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin with several upcoming programs.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth is celebrating the evolutionist’s birth with a reading of key scenes from the 1955 play “Inherit the Wind,” by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, 7 p.m. Wednesday. The reading will be followed by a short discussion of the continuing controversy over the teaching of evolution in public schools.

…evolution and darwin’s commemoration of humans worst logic blunder…!
…or could it be, that some evolutionists, are using the reverse method to prove
something else…?
…well not with their emphasis and public teaching of evolution as they do…!

Learning to Love Evolution
January 30, 2009
Marking Darwin’s 200th birthday on February 12th, Philip Kitcher has written a review of evolutionary geneticist Jerry Coyne’s latest book, Why Evolution Is True, in which Coyne tries to persuade his readers that the theory of evolution is true. “As public-opinion surveys reveal, most of our countrymen have grave doubts about the truth of Darwin’s theory,” Kitcher writes in the Wall Street Journal, and he’s doubtful that even a book as well argued as Coyne’s can change the fact that for many Americans, believing in evolution is the equivalent of rejecting religious morality. Still, Kitcher says, “whether or not he succeeds in bringing Americans en masse to learn to love evolution, he has offered Darwin a splendid birthday present.”
http://www.genomeweb.com/blog/learning-love-evolution
…to emphatically state that “why is evolution true”
or evolution “is the only scientific theory”,
eliminates the protective science definition of a
theory, and makes it a political-educational
willful fiasco-and-hoax, that is as bad or worse
than it being a “plot” and/or “stratagem”…!
…as they seemed to not know of any other way
to keep religion out of the classroom…!, a part
from anything else…!
…the “stratagem” the bible could represent, could be
worse than evolution…!

Darwin in Danger? Top Evolution Stories of the Year
Newswise — Evolution is under attack across the U.S. Last year, the teaching of evolution was challenged in scores of schools. During the same period, six states introduced (and Louisiana passed) “academic freedom laws” that discredit evolution and smuggle creationist teachings into the classroom. (For more, see http://ncseweb.org/evolution/education/academic-freedom).
2009 doesn’t look much better. Oklahoma is first to bat with a strong antievolution bill, followed by Mississippi with a bill requiring warning labels on textbooks. Other states that may consider similar legislation in 2009 include Michigan, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, and South Carolina.
Creationists are also undermining the teaching of evolution by sabotaging state science standards, with a battle currently raging among the members of the Texas state board of education. And in too many classrooms around the country, due to local pressure, their own misconceptions, or a lack of training, teachers are not teaching evolution.

IS HUMAN USE OF PEDIGREE BACK…?
A Boca Raton couple got a new dog, and it’s just like their old dog. Not just the same breed and gender, but the same DNA. Nina and Edgar Otto picked up their cloned yellow lab puppy at the Miami International Airport Monday night. Lancelot Encore was cloned from the DNA of the Ottos’ late dog Lancelot, which died of cancer in January 2008.

…further added recommendations to readers of my book…!

http://www.authorhouse.com/BookStore/ItemDetail~bookid~54051.aspx
[highlight, copy and paste the link into your browser]

I HIGHLY recommend that you read and re-read
my Book, and all Bibliography, and others, before
you go and step right into the “loop”, or “trap”…

Secondly i do not claim to be infallible…But that
any valid critique, most likely might be for your
further defeat…!

Although my Book is written in a “simplistic”
manner, it is very complex…!

Also I tend to speak in simplistic ways using the
most easy terms available…!

My mind functions thus that I do not carry inside
all the information, as my ram memory is limited,
although my “rom” might be more ample…!

So for a public symposium, I would have to have a
number of books with me, including a number of
Dictionaries, plus my Book…! And an online
computer to search for any answer, that I would
deem to be so…!

As to direct critique to me via blog or email, I do
have a limit in time and response…!

You can even write to me anonymously if required.

New Zealand Dollar Drops to 6-Year Low, Australia’s Also Falls
By Candice Zachariahs

Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) — New Zealand’s dollar dropped to a six-year low after the central bank cut interest rates by a larger-than-forecast 1.5 percentage point, reducing the appeal of the nation’s assets. The Australian currency also fell.
The currencies fell as the Reserve Bank of New Zealand slashed rates to a record low 3.5 percent in a decision that was forecast by three of 13 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News. Traders are betting Australia’s central bank will cut it cash target 1 percentage point to 3.25 percent when it meets Feb. 3.
“It has been a surprise for the market and we’ve seen the currency fall quite dramatically on the back of that,” said Danica Hampton, a currency strategist at Bank of New Zealand Ltd. in Wellington. “The currency will remain under pressure.”
New Zealand’s dollar slid as low as 51.53 U.S. cents, the weakest since December 2002, before trading at 51.84 cents as of 4:11 p.m. in Sydney. It bought 46.57 yen from 47.06 yesterday in late Asian trading.
Australia’s currency fell 0.9 percent to 66.01 U.S. cents from 66.62 cents late in Asia yesterday. The currency fell 0.3 percent to 59.32 yen. It strengthened to NZ$1.2786, the highest since August 2008, before trading at NZ$1.2736, up 0.8 percent from yesterday.

Legislation to Reverse Stem Cell Ban Vowed by U.S. Lawmaker
By Rob Waters
Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) — U.S. Representative Diana DeGette said she plans to re-introduce a bill overturning limits on federal funding for stem-cell research even if President Barack Obama lifts the ban by executive order.
Former President George W. Bush, citing ethical concerns, barred federal support for researchers studying embryonic stem cells created after August 2001. He twice vetoed legislation, co- written by DeGette and approved by Congress, overturning the ban.
As an Illinois senator, Obama voted in favor of DeGette’s bill. He said during the presidential campaign that he favored reversing Bush’s ban on federal money for stem cell research. In a telephone interview today, DeGette, a Colorado Democrat, said she hopes Obama will issue such an order in the next few weeks.

…the control and “barred federal” support to stem cell research,
is more than amatter of religious “sanctity of life”….it is an ethical,
and “security” issue…!
…to “control” stem cell research, it will take more than “legislation”…!

Drought, Flood in Global Warming to Last Millennium, Study Says
By Jim Efstathiou Jr.
Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) — Carbon dioxide pumped into the atmosphere today from power plants and cars will affect surface temperatures and sea levels for more than 1,000 years, scientists from the U.S. and Europe reported.
Coastal regions and small islands could be submerged for centuries, even if carbon dioxide emissions are completely stopped in the next 100 years, according to a new study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The agency’s report appears today in the online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
“We are creating something which is irreversible on the human time scale,” said Pierre Friedlingstein, a co-author of the report, in an interview. “The more we wait the more we go into a stage that will last a very long time.”
A 16 percent increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from today’s levels would trigger drought conditions in southern Europe, northern Africa and the southwestern U.S. that could last a millennium, said Friedlingstein, research director at the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace in Gif-Sur-Yvette, France. Other regions could see lower water supplies, more wild fires and lower food production.
The buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the next century will cause sea levels to rise for the next 1,000 years, according to the report. A 56 percent increase in heat-trapping gases would lead to an average sea-level rise of 1.3 to 3.2 feet (0.4 to 1 meter) by the year 3000.
Minimum Sea Level Rise
“Additional contributions to sea level rise from the melting of glaciers and polar ice sheets are too uncertain to quantify,” Susan Solomon, senior NOAA scientist and lead author of the report, said in a statement. “We presented the minimum sea level rise that we can expect from well-understood physics, and we were surprised that it was so large.”

China Tells Obama What to Do With His Yuan Views: William Pesek
an. 28 (Bloomberg) — China took Barack Obama’s views on the yuan seriously. So seriously that it is doing the exact opposite of what the U.S. president would like.
China let the yuan fall the most in a month on Jan. 23, right after Timothy Geithner, Obama’s pick for Treasury secretary, relayed Obama’s campaign position that China was “manipulating” its currency. The reaction was China’s way of telling the new U.S. leader what he can do with his foreign-exchange views.
What should currency traders do now? Is a trade war brewing between the world’s No. 1 and No. 3 economies? Is the yuan about to strengthen? Will Obama risk the ire of the most populous nation to make good on his protectionist campaign-trail rhetoric? Perhaps the answer is for everyone to relax.
Yes, China manipulates its currency. Arguably, so do Singapore, Argentina, Saudi Arabia and any nation that either pegs its currency, maintains a tight trading band or oversees a “managed float” system. Even Hong Kong, routinely ranked as the world’s freest economy by the Heritage Foundation, manipulates its currency. It has to maintain its link to the U.S. dollar.
“Manipulate” is a charged word, and it’s politically incorrect in financial circles. And yet it was hard to keep a straight face when a Commerce Ministry official argued on Jan. 24 that “China has never tried to gain advantage in international trade by manipulating its currency.”

Citi, BofA Show Investors Can’t Bank on Capital: David Reilly
Jan. 28 (Bloomberg) — Sheila Bair shouldn’t try to jawbone these markets.
The head of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. declared during a television interview last week that “98 percent of all banks are well capitalized.”
Technically, she is right, since regulatory capital is different from shareholder equity. Still, that’s a nuance lost on most of the public and one that doesn’t adequately reflect just how bad things are at banks.
Even as Bair was speaking, debate was brewing in government circles over the possibility of having to nationalize banks. It doesn’t get much bleaker than that.
Bair needed to reflect in her comments more of a sense that all isn’t well, even if in language that didn’t panic investors or cause a bank run.
That may sound like semantics. It isn’t.
In July 2008, then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and other government officials reassured the public that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had adequate regulatory capital.
Plenty of mom-and-pop investors took those declarations to heart and held onto their stock in the mortgage giants. About six weeks later, those same investors got whacked when Paulson placed Fannie and Freddie under government control.

…it is defined that shares money is different from: “regulatory capital” and what else…?!
