Kudos to Dr Marlin Perkins, Director of St Louis Zoo, and to Jim Fowler - hands on wildlife experts - and what a delightful series of animal videos - Mutual Omaha's Wild Kingdom - shot all over the world they have presented. I admire such accomplished persons.

Dr Perkins passed away in 1986 according to Wiki. What a great person he was!

During his time at the Lincoln Park Zoo, Perkins joined Sir Edmund Hillary as the zoologist for Hillary's 1960 Himalayan expedition to search for the legendary Yeti.

You are such a naive young one. I remember watching the series on TV. Best part of it was the Mutual of Omaha commercials.

While you are at it, maybe you should "discover" Laugh-In. I believe it was right afterwords.

Thank you, Papa. That's not my style. It's too behind the times and maybe it should suit your generation of oldies. I am a great fan of martial arts, wildlife, rock music/EDM, latest military weaponry and sports. Anyway, thank you for the link.

RELIGIOUS NONSENSE

1) Evidence of scriptural personalities hardly matters since the age when these persons lived is so remote.

2) However, we can analyse the true worth of these scriptural persons by scrutinizing their teachings to see if they correspond to reality or fiction and I must add that most of their teachings fall under the category of half-baked truths or pure fiction.

3) Besides, most importantly, the total lack of intervention in the world during times of serious trouble by the extra-cosmic God who creates from nothing points towards his impotence or absence.

4) Take the case of Jews being traumatized for millennia by Christians and look at the way the Kaaba was destroyed on many occasions in the past and look how Islamic nations and Muslims wallow in filth, poverty, bloodshed and backwardness and look at how Muslims and their countries are being systemically destroyed and trampled over by foreign forces at will and look at how Muhammad could not be saved by his "omnipotent" and "omniscient" and "omnipresent" God from dying a most horrible death due to poisoning and one can only conclude that religious beliefs are mumbo jumbo while their pet theories of creation from nothing and a God who protects and saves is nonsense.

5) A brain-dead subhuman type like MUQ or Shamma may be satisfied with mumbo jumbo but thoughtful people cannot be satisfied with rubbish and look either to science or to mysticism that're based on corroborative tangibles like energy, matter and consciousness for rational and verifiable explanations and experiences.

Looks like Joel has a friend....

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (JTA)— An employee of the Dutch Justice Ministry said the jihadist group ISIS was created by Zionists seeking to give Islam a bad reputation.
Yasmina Haifi, a project leader at the ministry’s National Cyber Security Center, made the assertion Wednesday on Twitter, the De Telegraaf daily reported.
“ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s part of a plan by Zionists who are deliberately trying to blacken Islam’s name,” wrote Haifi, who described herself on the social network LinkedIn as an activist for the Dutch Labor party, or PvdA.

Well, I have just returned home after having had a great time with some great people from LA, New Delhi and Geneva who are in Mumbai for a week. We visited a few places of interest and had some highly stimulating conversations on a number of very interesting subjects. As for food, well, we really enjoyed superb world foods at the Trident's and Taj's classy restaurants. Just some time ago, I had two very interesting guests from Turkey living in my apartment and today I met this group of 5 very interesting persons from different cities. We're scheduled to meet tomorrow as well.
