new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

    As a Northern European (Ireland)  find this chart hard to believe. I personally do not know anyone who does not believe in evolution. Maby the filtering question to sort out believers is too complex. Evolution is tought in elementry schools here without any controversy, only fringe religious groups teach biblical creation.

  2. i'll tell you one thing that surprised me.  i grew up thinking that most people around understood and accepted evolution because 1. we were taught it in school and 2. i just assumed they believed it.

    recently, because of my blog and FB posts, i've had quite a few people engage me in discussions about this... and i was surprised to learn that quite a few deny evolution.  it's truly disheartening.

    in any case, personal experience can't replace data -- i'll have to check out the methods followed to produce the chart.
