I've had one of these for decades--it's called a radio.
Exactly! This is like saying that throwing apples on the ground is hurting gravity. I also don't understand why we feel the need to associate words like good or bad with evolution. The only thing that is good or bad is when the effect of evolution affects us in some way. Is entropy acting mean today?
It's interesting to see how inconsistent people here do tend to be.
I would hazard a guess that there is a much higher percentage of atheists and agnostics among slashdotters than what is in the general population, so I just don't get the whole ascribing good/evil tags to human impact upon evolution. As I understand it, there is no right or wrong in evolution, only cause and effect.
If one ascribes no special status to humans (e.g. "made in the image of God"), then how can we be anything more than causes and effects within the process? Do we ascribe malicious intent to beavers, because they flood a valley and force a bunch of meadow voles and rabbits out of their homes?
WTF??? What does the inauguration have to do with this? I suggest we go back to all Slashdot stories and insert what happened on that day. Examples:
* Researcher says Linux is better than Windows on Friendship Day.
* Researcher says Linux is better than Windows on Fall Equinox.
* Researcher says Linux is better than Windows on Kwanzaa.
Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
