Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

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

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?
That's either great news or very cruel.

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...

***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....

Unfortunately, I didn't get into it until after it was cancelled.

I think I've seen them all in syndication now.

Great show, and I don't watch a lot of tv.

<quoted text>Juan was traveling down a Los Angeles road near the community legal center when he saw a crowd of people gathering outside a lawyers office trailer.

It was a cold afternoon, so he stopped and asked fellow Muchacho why such a large crowd of men was gathered there.

The Muchacho replied,“Pablo’s donkey kicked his lawyer and he died.”

“Well,” replied the Juan,“he must have had a lot of friends.”

“Nope,” said the Muchacho.“We all just want to buy Pedro’s donkey.”
Wow.

Hilarious.

You're just too funny for words.

Ha ha.

Ho ho.
