One of Darwin's evolution theories finally proved by Cambridge researcher

March 17, 2020 One of Darwin's evolution theories finally proved by Cambridge researcher by University of Cambridge Charles Darwin's seminal book On The Origin of Species. Credit: Nordin Catic Scientists have proved one of Charles Darwin's theories of evolution for the first time—nearly 140 years after his death. Laura van Holstein, a Ph.D. student in Biological Anthropology at St John's College, University of Cambridge, and lead author of the research published today (March 18) in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, discovered mammal subspecies play a more important role in evolution than previously thought. Her research could now be used to predict which species conservationists should focus on protecting to stop them becoming endangered or extinct. A species is a group of animals that can interbreed freely amongst themselves. Some species contain subspecies—populations within a species that differ from each other by having different physical traits and their own breeding ranges. Northern giraffes have three subspecies that usually live in different locations to each other and red foxes have the most subspecies—45 known varieties—spread all over the world. Humans have no subspecies. van Holstein said: "We are standing on the shoulders of giants. In Chapter 3 of On the Origin of Species Darwin said animal lineages with more species should also contain more 'varieties'. Subspecies is the modern definition. My research investigating the relationship between species and the variety of subspecies proves that sub-species play a critical role in long-term evolutionary dynamics and in future evolution of species. And they always have, which is what Darwin suspected when he was defining what a species actually was." Laura van Holstein in the Old Library at St John's College, Cambridge, with a first edition of Charles Darwin's seminal book On The Origins of Species. Credit: Nordin Catic The anthropologist confirmed Darwin's hypothesis by looking at data gathered by naturalists over hundreds of years ¬- long before Darwin famously visited the Galapagos Islands on-board HMS Beagle. On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, was first published in 1859 after Darwin returned home from a five-year voyage of discovery. In the seminal book, Darwin argued that organisms gradually evolved through a process called 'natural selection' - often known as survival of the fittest. His pioneering work was considered highly controversial because it contradicted the Bible's account of creation. van Holstein's research also proved that evolution happens differently in land mammals (terrestrial) and sea mammals and bats (non-terrestrial)¬ because of differences in their habitats and differences in their ability to roam freely. van Holstein said: "We found the evolutionary relationship between mammalian species and subspecies differs depending on their habitat. Subspecies form, diversify and increase in number in a different way in non-terrestrial and terrestrial habitats, and this in turn affects how subspecies may eventually become species. For example, if a natural barrier like a mountain range gets in the way, it can separate animal groups and send them off on their own evolutionary journeys. Flying and marine mammals—such as bats and dolphins—have fewer physical barriers in their environment." The research explored whether subspecies could be considered an early stage of speciation—the formation of a new species. van Holstein said: "The answer was yes. But evolution isn't determined by the same factors in all groups and for the first time we know why because we've looked at the strength of the relationship between species richness and subspecies richness." The research acts as another scientific warning that the human impact on the habitat of animals will not only affect them now, but will affect their evolution in the future. This information could be used by conservationists to help them determine where to focus their efforts. Darwin's hypothesis that was proved by a PhD student at St John's College, Cambridge. Credit: Nordin Catic van Holstein explained: "Evolutionary models could now use these findings to anticipate how human activity like logging and deforestation will affect evolution in the future by disrupting the habitat of species. The impact on animals will vary depending on how their ability to roam, or range, is affected. Animal subspecies tend to be ignored, but they play a pivotal role in longer term future evolution dynamics." van Holstein is now going to look at how her findings can be used to predict the rate of speciation from endangered species and non-endangered species. Notes to editors: What Darwin said on page 55 in 'On the Origin of Species': "From looking at species as only strongly-marked and well-defined varieties, I was led to anticipate that the species of the larger genera in each country would oftener present varieties, than the species of the smaller genera; for wherever many closely related species (i.e species of the same genus) have been formed, many varieties or incipient species ought, as a general role, to be now forming. Where many large trees grow, we expect to find saplings." Datasets: Most of the data is from Wilson and Reeder's Mammal Species Of The World, a global collated database of mammalian taxonomy. The database contains hundreds of years' worth of work by taxonomists from all over the world. The current way of "doing" taxonomy goes all the way back to botanist Carl Linnaeus (1735), so the accumulation of knowledge is the combined work of all taxonomists since then.

Dead Sea Scroll fragments in The Museum of the Bible found to be fake

Dead Sea Scroll fragments in The Museum of the Bible found to be fake by Bob Yirka , Phys.org Credit: CC0 Public Domain A team of workers at Art Fraud Insights, LLC, has found that all of the Dead Sea Scroll (DSS) fragments housed at the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C. are fake. They have published their findings on their company website . The Dead Sea scrolls are a collection of scrolls found in the Qumran Caves near the shore of the Dead Sea. They were discovered by a Bedouin shepherd in 1946. Since that time, the scrolls have been identified as ancient Jewish manuscripts created over the last three centuries BCE and the first century CE. They are housed in the Shrine of the Book on the grounds of the Israel Museum. Officials of the Museum of the Bible obtained 16 fragments of what were claimed to be additional DSS fragments sometime after 2002. Soon thereafter, other institutions that had obtained samples from the same collections found evidence that they were not authentic DSS fragments. That finding cast doubt on all of the others. But it was not until 2017 that the Museum of the Bible opened its doors, proudly showing off its collection of DSS fragments. The next year, some of them were tested by Germany's Federal Institute for Materials Research and were found to be fake, as well. That led the museum to ask the team at Art Fraud Insights, LLC to examine all of their fragments. After several months of work, the team presented their results, which the Museum of the Bible made public. They had found that the material makeup of the collection did not match that of the original DSS fragments—they appeared to be ancient leather rather than parchment. More importantly, they had found that modern ink had been used to print words on the old material fragments—it had pooled on the old dried leather. The group also found evidence of clay mineral dust similar to that found in the Qumran Caves that had been applied after the inking had been done—evidence of an attempt to cover up the fake materials below. The final verdict: the fragments were not only fake, but had been created for the purpose of deception.

How To Survive A Pandemic, According To These Fictional Characters

by Joshunda Sanders

With all your spring plans officially cancelled over the global coronavirus pandemic, maybe it's time for you to cuddle up with a good book — as the introverts do, united in spirit but in your own home.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say as many as 214 million people could become infected with the novel coronavirus if we don't change our behaviour; more than one million could die during a pandemic that could last anywhere from a few months to a year. So that's the bad news. The good news is that there are actions we can take to keep ourselves healthy, including social distancing and working from home.When you start to feel the stir-crazy pangs of oncoming loneliness, it might be helpful to get some tips from the fictional characters whose creators were nice enough to conjure up our worst-case scenarios and nightmares a while ago. What you'll find in the list below is a resounding theme: Most people stay calm and maintain connection instead of perishing alone. Reaching out is an act of self-preservation. Maybe don't physically touch anybody, unless it's a fist bump with gloved hands. Texting and emailing is cool. Phone calls are also a good look. Here are some other lessons to be learned from a few fictional characters:"Parable of the Sower" by Octavia Butler (1993) Lauren Oya Olamina, a 15-year-old hyperempathic girl in the year 2024, leaves her Los Angeles-area home during a post-apocalyptic event. To survive, she practices her shooting aim. She learns to control whose emotions she takes on so the pain of other people's feelings doesn't kill her. She also shaves her head to appear more gender-nonconforming when she travels with an ad-hoc group to a designated safe space in the Pacific Northwest. "Speech Sounds" by Octavia Butler (1983)This Hugo Award-winning short story features Valerie Rye, a middle-aged writer and history professor traveling alone in Los Angeles after a pandemic referred to as "the illness" has killed her whole family. The illness takes away what people love most — it took Valerie's ability to read and write. Like many of Butler's heroines, Rye is armed for protection, carrying a backpack with antiseptic and bandages. She maintains her compassion and empathy even as she is confronted with the harsh realities of her new world."Love Is The Drug" by Alaya Dawn Johnson (2014) In this heralded novel with shades of the FX series "The Americans," Emily Bird slowly comes to realise that her scientist parents are likely connected to a global pandemic — and possibly worse — that puts Washington, D.C., under quarantine. Like all Black girls facing the crises of everyday life, she also changes her hair by way of a home relaxer and ends up with a TWA (teeny weeny afro). She's pretty cerebral but also kind of a rebellious introvert, so she pops melatonin to help with her anxiety-induced insomnia and breaks up with her obnoxious boyfriend so she can flirt with two mysterious classmates and get to the bottom of a US government conspiracy. "Love In The Time of Cholera" by Gabriel Marcia Marquez (1985) This novel focuses on several characters during a time of cholera that was brought on by poor sanitary conditions in the Caribbean. Like his father Dr. Marco Aurelio Urbino, who died in quarantine to protect his loved ones, Dr. Juvenal Urbino is fascinated with studying all he can to stop the spread of a cholera epidemic. One of the major themes of the novel is the way that love and nature persist even in times of distress and unease. "Severance" by Ling Ma (2018) Candace Chen, a disaffected millennial and Bible production employee, first thinks she can stress-eat her way out of the Shen Fever pandemic that paralyses New York City. In the end, she finds herself traveling west with a kind of post-apocalyptic cult that "stalks" the empty homes and buildings where the fever has decimated families. She survives by continuing some of her behaviours from before the pandemic — moving frequently, albeit now with others. She is highly adaptable, even as she remains a kind of sarcastic, lost loner. She seems to both discover and lose herself in the work of becoming a survivalist. "All The Time in The World" by Charlotte Nicole Davis (2020) In one of a number of standout stories in the recently released anthology "A Phoenix First Must Burn, Sixteen Stories of Black Girl Magic, Resistance and Hope," Jordan Carter is a high school student who realises that the Contaminant in the city's water — inspired by the ongoing public health emergency that is the Flint, Michigan, water crisis — has damaged a lot of other people. But instead of weakening her, she discovers that this epidemic has given her an extraordinary power. She double-checks the surreal nature of how crises show us where we are stronger and more magnificent than we could have dreamed with her crush."Blindness" by Jose Saramoga (1995) Almost everyone has been struck by "white blindness" in this novel except for the doctor's wife. (None of the characters have names — a reminder of the way that catastrophe and disaster can strip us of our identities in the social order when things were normal.) Like many women in fictional pandemic circumstances, the doctor's wife goes hard on the maternal side when she becomes a de facto leader of a group gone wild, one of 300 quarantined in a warehouse. She kills to protect them and she also cares for the newly vulnerable. Even in a pandemic ― maybe especially during a pandemic ― shoring up your karma for being a kind human is a good idea. "Zone One" by Colson Whitehead (2011) Mark Spitz is a self-described "middling talent," one of three survivalist members of a Zone One unit sent to clear an area in Manhattan after a pandemic has devastated the world. Spitz struggles with hallucination brought on by a condition called Post Apocalyptic Stress Disorder. His main coping mechanism appears to be learning to adapt to the world as it is now, even if he does have to eat a stand-in for breakfast called "morning paste." He's got a gun and a survival pack to deal with the undead who pop up as they search buildings to resettle New York City. BONUS: "Blood Quantum," a film by Jeff BarnabyThis heralded film by the Native American writer and filmmaker Jeff Barnaby flips the genre of zombie pandemics on its head: When a zombie virus spreads, the only people who survive are those with a measure of Native blood. This is a wonderfully restorative and gory alternative history considering all that colonialism and globalism have done to devastate Native and Indigenous people. AMC has picked up the movie to release on its streaming service, Shudder. Related... The Best Mindfulness Apps That Will Help You Stay Calm Coronavirus Cancelled IVF For These Women.

Is hell eternal?

Anonymous Anonymous asked in Society ämp; Culture Religion ämp; Spirituality · 36 mins ago Is hell eternal? 7 Answers Relevance No, nit art all - the Bible tells us that hell is only for 99 years (Jer. 22:13). Log in to reply to the answers Hell yes. I am not sure about heaven, especially for child angels. Children go to heaven as children, innocent and uneducated. They lose innocence as they learn. Does this mean burn all science books? No, science doesn t destroy innocence, but porn does. Are child angels going to read porn in heaven? No, of course not. But the child angels have not had the time for their spirits to guide them to be good or evil. Consequently, it is possible for a child angel to become evil while in heaven. I would imagine that one could be kicked out of heaven (perhaps making a poker room in a smoky back room of heaven, enforced by angel thugs). So, I think that some infractions damn people to hell for all eternity (such as altering the meaning of the Book of Revelation in the bible, which the bible says will write one out of the book of life forever), while entry into heaven is contingent upon continued good behavior. Log in to reply to the answers Anonymous 31 mins ago Hell Definition: The word 'hell' is found in many Bible translations. In the same verses other translations read 'the grave,' 'the world of the dead,' and so forth. Other Bibles simply transliterate the original-language words that are sometimes rendered 'hell'; that is, they express them with the letters of our alphabet but leave the words untranslated. What are those words? The Hebrew she'ohlʹ and its Greek equivalent haiʹdes, which refer, not to an individual burial place, but to the common grave of dead mankind; also the Greek geʹen·na, which is used as a symbol of eternal destruction. However, both in Christendom and in many non-Christian religions it is taught that hell is a place inhabited by demons and where the wicked, after death, are punished (and some believe that this is with torment). Does the Bible indicate whether the dead experience pain? Eccl. 9:5, 10: 'The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all . . . All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol,* the place to which you are going.' (If they are conscious of nothing, they obviously feel no pain.) (*'Sheol,' AS, RS, NE, JB; 'the grave,' KJ, Kx; 'hell,' Dy; 'the world of the dead,' TEV.) Ps. 146:4: 'His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts* do perish.' (*'Thoughts,' KJ, 145:4 in Dy; 'schemes,' JB; 'plans,' RS, TEV.) Does the Bible indicate that the soul survives the death of the body? Ezek. 18:4: 'The soul* that is sinning—it itself will die.' (*'Soul,' KJ, Dy, RS, NE, Kx; 'the man,' JB; 'the person,' TEV.) Does anyone ever get out of the Bible hell?Rev. 20:13, 14, KJ: 'The sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell* delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.' (So the dead will be delivered from hell. Notice also that hell is not the same as the lake of fire but will be cast into the lake of fire.)

(1 Timothy 4:1) However, the inspired word clearly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired statements and teachings of demons, (2 Timothy 4:3, 4) For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories. (Ephesians 4:25) Therefore, now that you have put away deceit, each one of you speak truth with his neighbor, because we are members belonging to one another.

You see how the Bibles not bad enough and liars have to keep on adding to it? The concept of hell is based entirely on misinformation. Ask yourself if God is love why would He torment anyone. Next look up hell, sheol sulfer and every other word associated with hell in good Hebrew and Greek dictionaries.

Now pick the meaning that matches a loving God most closely and youve got your answer . You see the Bible was translated by the Roman Catholic Church. They sold penances and indulgences.

Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?' 16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, 'King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us[c] from Your Majesty's hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.' 19 Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual 20 and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21 So these men, wearing their robes, trousers, turbans and other clothes, were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace. 22 The king's command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers who took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, 23 and these three men, firmly tied, fell into the blazing furnace. 24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, 'Weren't there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?' They replied, 'Certainly, Your Majesty.' 25 He said, 'Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.' 26 Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, 'Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!' So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. 28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, 'Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king's command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29 Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.' 30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the province of Babylon.

Why do atheists BEG for evidence but refuse to acknowledge the Bible?

Promoted 7 Answers Relevance The Bible presents many events that were claimed of God and would have left unmistakable, lasting evidence. n Not only does the evidence for these events not exist, but the existing evidence shows that much different history unfolded.

The Bible says Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.'  Do you follow that law?

Promoted 4 Answers Relevance That is part of the Mosaic Law consisting of 613 statutes and regulations.  The Mosaic Law was for the Jews and the Jews only.  God made a point of telling them that.  That is not, and has never been, a requirement of Christians.  Since I am a Christian, I do not - and am not obligated to - follow that law.   No. Hannah J Paul Log in to reply to the answers Jesus Christ did away with many of the meaningless rules and beliefs of Old Testament Judaism.

What would life be like if there was no Hell?

Promoted 19 Answers Relevance There would be no difference. The afterlife would be different. Billions of God s chilidren would be lost to him forever. Hell is never forever. It is a temporary condition of purification from sin. Rev. 20:12-14 shows that death and hell must both be emptied and destroyed so that the resurrections and final judgment can take place. There is only finite punishment for finite sin. God s love, justice, and mercy are all intact. Log in to reply to the answers Life would be wonderful. There would be no need for hell which is the grave. Ecclesiastes 9:10, 'Whatever your hand finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the GRAVE, where you are going.' because there will be no more deaths according to Revelation 21:4, 'And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.' A personal study of the Bible will show how Jehovah God will accomplish this. www.jw.org click on REQUEST A BIBLE STUDY Log in to reply to the answers maybe you ll find out, at the end of the next millenium.. !!!
