    The journal Nature is going to begin requiring reproducibility in submitted papers

    It seems that the Scientific Method is going to be belatedly adhered to. Excellent news.

    Hopefully, researchers will no longer be able to hide their fake data from prying eyes.

    I didn’t think the scientific method was about democracy, but about winnowing and sifting for truth. I could be wrong.

    Oh…and about “What happens when nobody tells them the truth.” This always reminds me of a passage of scripture.

    “…my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”
    Hosea 4:6


    Mother Earth buries its dead.
    The earth is alway changing.
    (Ie. coal, oil)

    Until recently, astronomers estimated that the Big Bang occurred between 12 and 14 billion years ago. To put this in perspective, the Solar System is thought to be 4.5 billion years old and humans have existed as a genus for only a few million years. Astronomers estimate the age of the universe in two ways: 1) by looking for the oldest stars; and 2) by measuring the rate of expansion of the universe and extrapolating back to the Big Bang; just as crime detectives can trace the origin of a bullet from the holes in a wall.

    The Biosphere: Life on Earth

    Life! It’s everywhere on Earth; you can find living organisms from the poles to the equator, from the bottom of the sea to several miles in the air, from freezing waters to dry valleys to undersea thermal vents to groundwater thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. Over the last 3.7 billion years or so, living organisms on the Earth have diversified and adapted to almost every environment imaginable. The diversity of life is truly amazing, but all living organisms do share certain similarities. All living organisms can replicate, and the replicator molecule is DNA. As well, all living organisms contain some means of converting the information stored in DNA into products used to build cellular machinery from fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.

    If Mother Earth did not bury its dead, the earth would be covered in dead, stinking, decaying matter.
    How does Mother Earth buries its dead!
    Sedimentary Rocks on the Colorado Plateau

    The Colorado Plateau is one of the World’s great show places for sedimentary rocks. Precambrian and all Phanerozoic periods except Ordovician and Silurian are represented. Especially well exposed are Permian through Jurassic sedimentary rocks that were deposited in mostly tropical desert sedimentary environments. These sedimentary rocks provide the focal point for the greatest concentration of National Parks in the World. The Grand Staircase, the southwestern escarpment of the Colorado Plateau, exposes one of the finest and most complete sedimentary sections anywhere!


    “He’s pictured the moment if ICE were to knock on his door. “I definitely won’t let them in. That’s our legal right,….”
    It won’t be ICE, it will be a SWAT team that won’t be too concerned with legal niceties, at least while the center holds.


    “The living fabric of the world is slipping through our fingers without our showing much sign of caring,” say the organisers of the Biological Extinction conference held at the Vatican this week. Threatened creatures such as the tiger or rhino may make occasional headlines, but little attention is paid to the eradication of most other life forms, they argue. But as the conference will hear, these animals and plants provide us with our food and medicine.”

    Read that last sentence again…provide us… So even people writing about a topic like other species disappearing in an effort to get people’s attention have to make it about ‘people’. Why can’t we just love the wild kingdom for its inherent beauty without it having to pay us a dividend?



    Don’t worry, the cockroaches and a great many other things will still be around when we are long gone. :=)
