<quoted text>Yep. A lot of people assume that atheism means "against god," when for most people I think it just means a simple lack of belief. I believe that most atheists would, if presented with evidence for god, adjust their beliefs appropriately. Some might even welcome evidence for eternal paradise. Imagine that!
There are "anti-theists" out there - but I think they're mostly objecting to the theists, not the deities. themselves. And the ones I know are rational - given enough evidence, they would not, I think, insist that a demonstrated reality didn't exist.

Farscape has aliens. It's one of the best.
My favorite franchises are Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek, Stargate, Dune, and Fringe.
Firefly is the highest quality science fiction series out there, as far as I'm concerned.
Dr Who (new), Haven, Arrow, Dollhouse, Eureka, Games of Throne, Grimm... these days we are spoiled.

But Firefly was and is number one.

BTW Did you know that they may start up again?

I thought that Farscape was Australian...
I also find it interesting, but cool, that Firefly has no aliens in it.

I hope it happens.

I am unsure but it doesn't look promising.
Seems as if the comic will continue but a reboot for the show...

One question....How do you trace an ape to an ape? Look in the mirror or something? Gasp ....Since all humans are related to Mt. Eve and Y Chromosome Adam , it's a pretty safe bet all blue eyes are related to all brown eyed people as well and a few green eyes and hazel.

***Meet Wilma, the first reconstruction of a Neanderthal created using evidence from fossil anatomy and ancient DNA.

Neanderthals were a species of human that became extinct 28,000 years ago. The lifesize model was created to illustrate “The Last of the Neanderthals,” the cover article in the October 2008 issue of National Geographic magazine.

The article, written by Steve Hall and photographed by David Liittschwager and Joe McNally, explores what caused Neanderthals, who dominated Eurasia for more than 200,000 years, to vanish in the Ice Age, while our modern human ancestors survived.

Wilma’s skeleton was built using replicas of a pelvis and cranial anatomy from Neanderthal females combined with parts from a cast of a composite skeleton of a male from the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Calculations were made to reduce the male bone sizes to female dimensions.

Paleo-artists and scientific consultants, overseen by National Geographic magazine’s senior science editor Jamie Shreeve, used evidence of ancient DNA preserved in cannibalized bones that suggested that at least some Neanderthals would have had red hair, pale skin and possibly freckles.

I'm more likely related to Wilma seeing as I have red hair, freckles and blue eyes....
