Things I found interesting inthe past week:
Michele @Reformed Chicks Blabbing had a rundown of news on terrorists.
A news item on the after effects of depleted uranium.
Wittingshire with many post paths to follow…
“…the Burgess Shale, quite possibly the most famous fossil bed in the world.
It’s the home of the “Cambrian Explosion” fossils–the fossils showing many different phyla emerging in a relatively short time frame, and with no credible precursor forms (which throws a wrench in standard Darwinian theory).
Harvard paleontologist Stephen J. Gould built a career around trying to explain this pattern of sudden appearance in strictly naturalistic terms.
