7 Ways To Convince People That Evolution Is More Than Just A Theory

If you’re tired of arguing with people who don’t understand evolution, here’s the ammunition you need. 1) The fossil record. “The fossil record is incomplete! Where are the missing links?” ask creationists. Yes, the fossil record is “incomplete”.

It Looks Like Water, But If You Touched It, It Would Probably Make You Very Sick

Mercury, as we all know, doesn’t do great things to the human body. Enough exposure to the substance can cause some serious damage, which makes it all the more shocking that an artist in Barcelona decided to construct this breathtaking fountain. While it looks pretty normal at first, this thing spews out liquid mercury. (source: mercuremiro) That really is some fine engineering work.

8 Prehistoric Parasites That Even Freaked The Dinosaurs Out

We all know there were mosquitoes in the time of the dinosaurs, mainly because that’s how “Jurassic Park” supposedly came to be. Aside from that, we rarely talk about parasites of bygone eras. Part of this is because it’s honestly hard to find any evidence that such parasites existed long ago, but the main reason why they’re forgotten about is because dinosaurs were the coolest. Why would we discuss anything else? For the sake of being inclusive, let’s give these deadly little critters credit. Oh, and most […]
