It's no stranger than the Viking re-enactors that they have in Europe. No stranger than Renaissance fairs either. I hear they still hold the Highland games which is still in that family of events.

We don't have democrats and republicans, we have just as bad, or possibly even worse.
The point about 9/11 is, it was obviously a demolition which took an awful lot of planning and time.It's not a conspiracy, it's a fact. It did happen and it was sanctioned by the US government. Saudi passports the hijackers allegedly had, where did they attack again? Wasn't Saudi Arabia that for sure.

Charles Darwin once said,"let the strongest live and the weakest die."

Lets hope the pink iguanas pull through the Wolf volcano eruption in the #Galapagos islands http://bbc.in/1F8SMe9
A volcanic eruption on one of the Galapagos Islands potentially puts Charles Darwin's evolution ecosystem at risk.

"Finally, it may not be a logical deduction, but to my imagination it is far more satisfactory to look at such instincts as the young cuckoo ejecting its foster-brothers, -- ants making slaves, -- the larvae of ichneumonidae feeding within the live bodies of caterpillars, -- not as specifically endowed or created instincts, but as small consequences of one general law leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die."

Now, that can sound like an argument for eugenics to you. What it sounds like to me is an explanation of how some of the more "strange and odious" instincts of animals came into being without falling back on the will of a deity - one that a person could be forgiven for thinking finds delight in creating needless suffering.

It should be noted that "eugenics" is simply nothing more than "selective breeding" applied to people, which is the exact opposite of natural selection. And it should be noted that selective breeding was well-established by Darwin's time - the idea that was only the understanding that nature exerted selection pressure of its own that somehow gave people the idea to treat other people like cattle is fallacious beyond all reasoning.

+Juan Sanshu I don't know or assume anyone of guilt and what you say could be true but without evidence (not just a bunch of interviews which I have a feeling this investigation may consist of) programs like this solve nothing and just fuel the conspiracy theorists flames imo.

I'll obviously past judgement fully once watching if I get time but I don't believe anything constructive or positive will come from this programme
