Running Man

I was in the midwest earlier this week, flying from a major university town to Chicago. I had the pleasure of sitting in front of two evangelical christians, who spent the entire flight talking loudly about their hatred of gays, evolution, the liberal media, the liberal academy, and their love of W. They were happy that finally, the liberal media would realize that mainstream America is fairly conservative, and that they personally would no longer be painted as right wing nuts. The professorial looking guy across the row from me looked pretty pissed, but i just found it depressing. Click here for scary statistics.

For those of you who do believe in evolution, both the Times and the BBC report a new study in nature that argues that the human form may have been an adaptation for running long distances.

Why does Baby got back?
"...humans evolved big buttocks, a balanced head and longer legs to help gather food."

Nice one.
