Here's a proposal to solve the serious social and political problems in the #USA: #Partition.

Let's just use the 2020 Presidential Election Results as a basis.

Split the US to create two new countries, one for Blue America and one for Red America.

(1/) Image
The red states can be called URSA, or United Republican States of America, and the blue states can be called United States of Democratic America (USDA).

In blue states (USDA), #abortion would be a fundamental right; in red states (URSA), it would be illegal.

#Evolution would be taught in USDA, #Creationism in URSA.

#Opencarry guns would be a fundamental right in URSA; the #SecondAmendment would be abolished in USDA; no private guns.

In URSA, there would be a flat tax rate of 10%.

In USDA, the #top1percent would pay 99% tax.

#NCERT #Darwin #PeriodicTable #Evolution

Been reading the commotion about Periodic Table and Evolution moving to a later level in Primary/Secondary Education.

Overall the concern around this is exaggerated & shrill disappointing.

Lets take a step back & examine the issue.

In the Karnataka State Syllabus, for decades, Periodic Table was a touch & go in the high school. It was discussed very deep only in the 11/12 - PUC.

Have generations of students turned out dumb? Have they come superstitious? Are they confusing religious accounts for Science?

Has’nt the State championed the cause of Science, Technology? In particular, is not the average society more aware of Science & Tech?

Haven’t they even joined the bandwagon of Progress & Development?

Have they collapsed into some abyss from which they need to be uplifted?

#Distort, #discredit, #dismiss - 6 additional tactics of media manipulators and why they work to sabotage public discourse


Details follow:
1/ 6 types of media manipulators
Anti-science activism never went away, it got a new ugly face in the #information age:

Quacks, gurus, contrarian doctors, fake experts, influencers, political commentators and similar media manipulators.

Previously we looked at "merchants of #doubt"

Today, we take a look at the "merchants of #ambiguity"

Their overarching goal is to create the perception that scientific issues are either eternally #unresolved or that #alternative interpretations are just as plausible or likely.

🐍 From 'hissing' like a snake to 'snarling' like a wild animal, Stevenson evokes a sense of danger & taps into 19th-century theories on evolution. With references to troglodytes and apes, the novella explores fears of devolution and the animal within us. #Darwin #Evolution
The murder of Danvers Carew taps into Victorian society's fears of the lower classes. Hyde, representing the dangerous elements of London, clashes with Carew's upper-class demeanour, revealing a societal divide. #VictorianSociety #ClassStruggle

I was talking about the phenomenon of co-evolution recently—this is a feature of biological #evolution of an entire *ecosystem*. separate populations of different organism are capable of evolving _together_, each influencing the evolutionary development of the other.

racists and Christian fanatics don't like being reminded that evolution is a *group* effort; dullards like @EPoe187 and @SwipeWright and the @SimoneHCollins people want to think that evolution yielded a *winner*, i.e. humanity, and that they're the winners of humanity.

but humanity is not alone on Earth, and countless species have co-evolved with humans. some of them have been *domesticated*, i.e. humanity took an active role in shaping the evolution of numerous beasts (often to ill effect, because humans prioritize superficialities.)

“Whence is it that you found the truth, o, Plato? … I know your teachers, although you seek to conceal them: you learned geometry from the Egyptians, astronomy from the Babylonians, you received pious invocations from the Thracians; the Assyrians taught you a great deal. > 1/2
>And, to the extent the laws [you expound] are true and glorify God, you have benefited yourself from the Jews.”

Klement adds that Plato took up the doctrine of the immortal soul from Pythagoras, who in turn had appropriated this from the Egyptians.

📚 The Selfish Gene

by Richard Dawkins

Worth reading for its thought-provoking and influential perspective on #evolution, which challenges traditional views and highlights the importance of genes in shaping life.

🧵 1/17 #biology #book Image
"The Selfish Gene" argues that genes, not organisms, are the fundamental unit of evolution.
According to Dawkins, genes are "selfish" because they seek to replicate themselves, even if it means sacrificing the well-being of the organism.

🧵 2
This perspective challenges traditional views of evolution, which often focus on the survival of individual organisms or species.
