Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Happy Birthday, Science!

On February 12th Science and Awesome will celebrate the birth date of a man who did more to further the Science of Biology than basically anybody ever in the known Universe.

This guy.

Ooh, yeah, mutton chops.

Here is a story about this awesome genius and hard field-worker by a "newspaper" from his native land.
http://www.economist.com/science/displaystory.cfm?story_id=13059028

Those of you who read it will notice that apparently somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 to 86 percent of AMERICANS DO NOT THINK THIS GUY'S THEORIES HOLD WATER WHEN COMPARED TO THE "BIBLE", WHICH BASICALLY SAYS THAT PEOPLE ARE MADE OF CLAY.


WELL YOU KNOW WHAT, FUCK THEM


ALL HAIL SCIENCE!


The remainder of this thread shall feature discussions on the awesomness of Charles Robert Darwin, the factual veracity of his theories, and the radness of science in general.
Spoiler:

Edit: Dangit, I cannot get that image to display properly.


Somebody use their science to get some cool pictures of CD up ins.

    I expect that they are largely negative, requiring an adjustment in the foundations of your initial assumption.

    One of his theories was proved int he last ten years or so.

    While exploring Africa he found a flower and it's petals form this really narrow tube which made it really hard for almost all the animals to get the nectar out because it was so deep. So he figured somewhere in the jungle there must be a bird that could do it.

    They only recently found it, it's got this really long beak and an even longer tongue it's pretty cool!

    Well, the hypothesis seems sound, but to be a rigorous scientific theory it must be reproducible.

    The caveat with entanglement is that no information will be teleported. You can send random signals to one another instantly, but they can only be verified at the speed of light.

    Quantum entanglement will never be able to teleport information without causing a causality paradox, so there's no way it and the general theory of relativity could be true at the same time. General relativity has been borne out in lots and lots of scientific experimentation, and has a great body of evidence supporting it, so I really don't expect entanglement to ever work as a means of instant communication or teleportation.
