Hi +CineFix, I read the final chapter of the novel to imply that he was so drugged up in the mental hospital that he wasn't sure what was going on. And I also thought that the people with the tell-tale bruising was the Project Mayhem members implying they were waiting for him to escape so they could try again.

Also the bit in the novel about the type of explosive used, the Narrator preferring one, Tyler the other, which explained why the explosives failed and also implied that the Narrator had been able to sabotage the plan.

Definitely a knowledge drought in agriculture, but I'd argue that climate change is the primary driver of crop yield stagnation in Australia (if not elsewhere). We should actually be seeing negative yield trends, so we're essentially holding back the tide at the moment.

Clearly heaviness is in the fingers. Or is it in the soul? Is the soul located in or near the fingers?

Friend of mine tells the story of having lunch at a cafe with a biologist friend who had just started at Monsanto. The Monsanto guy went to pay the bill on his corporate card and the woman on the till said they wouldn't accept his money.

So if you want free food in California, get a Monsanto corporate card.

I've always thought of the fine tuning argument as presuppositional nonsense to a post hoc reality. "Well if things were just a tiny bit different..." but they aren't. The very fact the universe, our planet, life, and us exist means we have to observe the universe as being in this specific mould for life (etc).

The water candle is being burnt at both ends with climate change and usage. Industry is a big user of water that he didn't mention, so the water issue is the sleeping giant.

Not sure if he touched on the lack of industry professionals, especially in the agricultural sciences, in his larger talk. It was noted on his "limitations" list. If we're going to deal with climate change, food production, and all the limitations, then we need professionals, especially in genetics and systems fields.

The worst part is that quite often they are taking the content and editing out the bits they don't want. You know, like the channel logo, the credits, the pesky bit at the end where people ask you to subscribe and like.

Dinesh is a great example of the (lack of) thinker that the conservative and creationist populations churn out. High schoolers have a better grasp of the stuff Dinesh talks about, yet he gets paid big bucks for his opinion.
