I've got about 20 pages left. It's a great book and I'm glad it's being made into a movie. Can't wait for it.

the da vinci isn't very good, pretty avergae to be honest, like dean koontz.  but despite it being average, it's still fun to read, it's not amazing literature, it's just fun.

Of course it does...Not as in growing flippers/hair on toes etc etc.

But how are you supposed to evolve if you don't stretch the brain?

im sorry, i had to go there.. people get things confused with evolution all the time, and it drives me crazy... and ive read lots by darwin.. and this
guy named david buss... he wrote a book about the stratagies of human mating, and desire.. its such a good book, i got it at this bargin books store.. it was like five dollars or so... but its bad ass because it tells you what makes you attractive to mates, and how it is from evolution...

and chocolate is good.. it has lots of antioxidants.. and some kind of chemical in it.. but you have to eat the darkest chocolates, not cheap milk choclate, its filled with waxes. the real stuff is awesome, and is somewhat of a drug.. i read that the world is running out of real chocolate.. you know the plants they make it from arent growing... it kind of reminds me of 1984.. how great to mention in the book thread.

Whats the book? I love reading about natural selection etc. Just amazes me. Beats the shit outta this creation mumbo jumbo...

BTW Is it true that in biology books in the States they have little disclaimers about evolution being a theory.

I saw this Docomentary about it...shocked the living hell outta me

well if you seen a documentary on it.. it must be true.  :lol: jk! yes, and for the record, evolution is a theory.. but gravity is still a theory as well...

i havent seen a disclaimer in any of my books, i will check. thats interesting.. but there is a lot of contraversy in american public schools abouy  teaching creationism from what i understand they must also teach evolutionism..

the book is The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating, and its david buss, hes wrote A LOT of awesome books, and is a evolutionary psychology professer at u of texas

Also the fact that creationism got dismissed, people tried to push the "intelligent design" theory.

I heard that, Im not to sure what Intelligent Design is though.

Is it like the strong will survive? As in the best out of a species lives and the weakest can't mate so dies?
