    This is a video of Bill Nye explaining the evolutionary process with the help of emojis. I'm not really sure the emojis added anything, but kids these days seem to like them. Whatever helps get the point across I guess. But if you really wanted to connect with the children y... / Continue →

    This is a video of ultra conservative Christian Megan Fox (not that Megan Fox, trust me) taking a trip to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to debunk their 'Evolving Earth' exhibit and audit it for a liberal (aka scientific, in her mind) bias. It starts off awful ... / Continue →

    Father Larry David is impressed! Speaking to a recent audience at the Vatican, Pope Francis has announced he believes the Big Bang theory and evolution are real, and don't contradict the idea of creation. Heck yeah, I can't wait to bring this up in Sunday school! "The beginn... / Continue →

    This is a 2-hour 45-minute Youtube video (watch the whole thing and it'll almost be time to leave for the day!) of the Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate on evolution vs young earth creation. Who won? Nobody -- nobody won. Zero opinions were changed, just as I expected. You have to in... / Continue →

    Allegedly the orchid mantis is the first known species of predator to lure prey pretending to be a flower (not hiding in the flower like some spiders do). Apparently they're so convincing they're more likely to be visited by insects than actual flowers. That's something you m... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature clearly has way too much time on her hands, this is a species of fruit fly that's evolved realistic looking pictures of jumping spiders on its wings. Impressive, but I'd still like to see a pair of those naked lady trucker mudflaps. The idea of the ant... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a cross between a shark, killer whale, cowboy boot and a sea turtle with an unfortunate chin penis, is an artist's impression of Entelognathus, an ancient fish paleontologists believe may be the missing link between the extinct bony armored Placoderms and... / Continue →

    Scientists using an electron microscope and high-speed cameras have discovered that Mother Nature apparently invented gears long before humans did, and included them on the legs of teensy planthopper insects to help them jump straight. Tell you what, Mother Nature -- you don't... / Continue →

    Because what good is Google Street View if we can't use it to explore places we've always dreamed of traveling but never will because life is just all work and then death, the folks at Google took a walking and diving tour of the Galapagos Islands so we can all take a virtual t... / Continue →

    Artist Nickolay Lamm and computational genomicist Alan Kwan teamed up to create a series of images of what the human face might evolve to look like in 20,000 years from now, 60,000 years from now, and 100,000 years from now. These are those images. Basically we get giant f***... / Continue →

    This is the Lygodium Spider Moth (Siamusotima aranea). The species was originally discovered in Thailand in 2005, but only recently described by entomologists. Did I mention it evolved with spider leg markings on its wings to fool predators? Because it has those, it totally ... / Continue →

    In "enough is enough, Mother Nature" news, a recently discovered species of spider in Peru creates a giant likeness of itself in its web to scare off potential predators. *dropping rolled up newspaper* It's working. The dummy spider is built out of old egg sacs, the carcasse... / Continue →
