  1. Money-based challenges
    “Creationist issues $11 trillion challenge.”

    Reading that article, I couldn’t help but be reminded of another big-money challenge which is unlikely to be won due to the fact that the requirements for winning are based on personal bias…

    …but I can’t for the life of me remember which one it was.

    1. Gee
      It’s weird to find yourself agreeing with Dawkins on a subject, but Man! Hasn’t that Turkish dude heard of the Archeopteryx?? That’s probably one of the best examples of “in-between” fossils you could find; and it’s been studied for more than a hundred years.

      A micro-biologist could win this easily, but I doubt the guy would accept DNA analysis as proof of evolution. Those are just “weird lines in a graph” after all 😉

      With this kind of reasoning, I fear the Turks are going to have a hard time adjusting to the EU, if they get accepted.

      It’s not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me…
      It’s all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!
