  1. I enjoyed her books of fiction... but the AAT has been shown to be false.
  2. I can see a house being made up of living trees, I've seen trees grown into various shapes, some resembling houses and even partially functional, but moving objects? Maybe with a lot of genetic engineering.
  3. What is a fish in the most interesting of those questions. Depending on how you define "taxon" we either are fish or fish is not a meaningful label for vertebrates. https://www.mun.ca/biology/scarr/Taxon_types.htm
  4. https://johnhawks.net/weblog/why-anthropologists-dont-accept-the-aquatic-ape-theory/
  5. Yes fish dance, watching their mating dances is one of the rewards of fish keeping!
  6. I hadn't thought of that answer, i was going for Pithyon.
  7. What do you call a snake that is 3.14 meters long?
  8. At the time of those writings the sun and moon were considered planets, but the earth was not and some even counted venus and mercury twice as evening and morning stars. We know now that the sun and moon are not planets and that mercury and venus are only one planet not four. I'm not seeing anything profound in the poetry than can be interpreted as accurate discriptions of the heavens. What was the definition of planets at the time is also important, if I understand correctly only objects that moved against the background of stars counted but now days we only count 8 planets. I'm not sure if there is a definition of planet that would suggest only 9 objects are planets.
  9. The purpose of life is obvious, to reproduce and create more life.
  10. I didn't see another thread on this, I'll look again. I can't seem to find the other thread, can you give me a link to it?
  11. A new study suggest dinosaurs might have been much smarter than originally thought! https://www.labroots.com/trending/neuroscience/24431/t-rex-smart-baboon
  12. Holes in cloud layers are cool as well.
