Anyone recognize this seat?  Supposedly it came from some military aircraft from the 50's but it looks older than that to me.  It is welded aluminum.

Space station? Moon? Both.
May the forth be with you, even if late. :-)

1/1000 sec, 1540mm at f12.1, old Cannon digital rebel DSLR on an Orion 127mm Mak telescope, no tracking. June 3, 2014 near Boulder Creek CA.

This video needs to get a bunch of down votes.
 
 iPhones don't mate and reproduce.  That is the FATAL FLAW of this very nicely made video.  Looks good, totally misrepresents the evolution case.  Classic strawman logical fallacy. https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/strawman

Evolution requires duplication.  Life is something that duplicates itself without outside help.  An iPhone is not living or a form of life.  We have yet to create such a thing.  With duplication, evolution needs some small level of error in the duplication process that doesn't outright kill the duplication.  This allows environmental pressures over time to select more suited members of the population.  The key being no intent on what the end result is.

The concept of the video is "we exist, therefore god". Earth shattering, Nobel prize type stuff there.

This one looks like it might work if I had the rest of the radio to hook it up to.  A guy at work was trying to sell it on ebay and didn't get any takers so gave it to me to have fun with.  I thought I'd share.  This was better than the picture of my brake disk.  ;-)

Yes, that is possible but that isn't biological evolution.  And that possibility doesn't mean this video is in any way representative of evolution.  A self replicating machine could evolve over time if variation were allowed or if analysis made by itself made changes or improvements based on its needs and environment.

X-plane 10 on my iPad! Amazing and mostly free. I had to buy the Cub. But fun for an iPad game. :-)

Awesome, the ad I got leading into this video is a Dell one talking about Science Leadership Academy for kids.  No magic!

Bleh.  There is evil because we only see a small part of god's plan?  No.  Sorry.  Not good enough.  Atheism rejects the fantasy, wishful thinking and false hope that suffering here and now is just a step to a more rewarding afterlife.  Worse, religion promotes the tolerance of suffering, leading people to accept it in the hope of a better afterlife.  That is one of the greatest evils of religion.  Maybe THE greatest.

Yes?  So?  They have to in order to explain the church's position on the idea.  The idea itself discourages the masses from thinking.  It is what the masses think/believe/do that matters.

Yep, original Goodyear brake disk on '52 Bonanza. A lot are converted to Cleveland brakes but I never felt the need. :-)

Under new-ish management. Previous reviews are irrelevant. Menu is close to the same, better service. No more garlic fries, different burger and chicken items. Tonight's take home order was messed up, maybe our fault but it seems they need to get their act together a little more.
