2 - The Dawn of Man

When life gives you lemons, you make HISTORY.

Episode two is up and filled with more environmental and biological controversies than you could throw a monkey at! We'll be taking a look at the early days of mankind, back when a good day was finding a semi fermented fruit and not getting eaten by a dinofelis. Good times!

  1. Hi Rob, I'm working my way through your series and am enjoying it. I thought I'd mention that the Catholic Church actually has no problem with evolution ... as long as you include the concept that God is what set evolution in motion. :-)

    1. Hi Julie, thanks for listening! The Vatican has certainly come a long way since Galileo...not only do they accept evolution with an almost deist approach, but they also maintain an observatory (http://vaticanobservatory.org/) AND accept that alien life is bound to exist! The Pontifical Academy of Sciences is comprised of members from numerous nations and has its fair share of Nobel winners. Somewhat ironically, the origins of the academy go back to a time when Galileo was president of the club...but hey! Mea culpa right?

  2. Oh Galileo, you troublemaker you (ha!) ... some things were done very wrong and some things actually were done right (which now I will have to go look into because I know the very simple basics of that part ... much like in Martin Luther's case - some things so very wrong and some things right ... :-D).

    If nothing else, I do like it when admissions are made that another point of view is right and then it is considered and teachings changed. The Church never gets credit for that. It's always "Galileo" and "the crusades" and "the Spanish inquisition" just when you never expect it. But then ... we all know that NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!

    1. I'd just like to point out that I'm in tremendous favor of more Monty Python references on this blog.
