"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

A comment I wrote at the Wall Street Journal about Muslim scum.
"The destruction of the mosque came as Iraqi counterterrorism forces approached within 50 meters of the structure, in a final push of an eight-month campaign to reclaim the last major urban territory controlled by Islamic State in the country."
Speak English so humans can understand. 55 yards, not 50 meters.
Muslims like to blow things up including themselves. Good riddance when that happens.
Actually I deleted my own comment. At the Wall Street Journal, no matter what I write, some asshole will harass me until the end of time. The place is too uncivilized. To solve the problem I stopped writing comments there.
