If he is saying evolution as our origin is not fact, he is right. We simply do not know if or how the primordial soup thing would work and there is no direct evidence of that being the case, only speculation. If he is saying evolution as an occurrence within our reality through time, environmental changes, and mutations is not fact, then he is wrong. Evolution can be seen and shown in many examples. If he is saying evolution can not be true simply because he is religious, then he should be removed from any policy making decisions for not thinking in terms or clarity. If a religion tells you one thing cannot be true simply because the religion says so, you have lost the ability of rational thinking.

To keep your home cool with central air conditioning while also optimizing energy efficiency (and therefore cost), keep the temperature at 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.

I would wake up in a puddle of sweat at those temps. Open a window???? Its 80 degrees at night, where is that supposed cool night air coming from? If I left my temps to 85 while I was gone, it would take the rest of the day of constantly running my AC to bring them back down...which is bad for the AC and will leave me sweating sitting on my couch.

No thanks, your guidelines may work for other parts of the world, but the humidity alone in Texas is enough to run my ac just to not sweat.

The Second Amendment doesn’t allow for the government to determine whether some have rights to own firearms, versus others who don’t. Seriously: Do we really want government holding this power?

Seems like a preaching-to-the-choir article. Either a person believes people and differing cultures are great and will live in harmony if only they did not have 'killing machines', or you believe that tools are only tools and its the people and their differences that cause the wielder to misuse the tools. You also can be someone that thinks many people are stupid and guns are a problem when in the hands of stupid people.

Me, I just make sure I am armed. The rest is a dichotomy likely never to be fully answered or conceded by either in our lifetime.

New Orleans police have made an arrest in the assault on comedian and actor Andy Dick that occurred early Saturday after a show in the French Quarter.

What a little bitch. Someone should take that fuck nuts out back and show him what a real fight is. I mean...its Andy Dick...the sucker punch is unnecessary, little bitch would have won the fight anyway. In my fighting days, I punched head on...only little scared bitches come out of nowhere. That means this particular little bitch is a super baby that is scared of Andy Dick.

A clinical trial will aim to identify the pattern of brain activity that signals the start of a food binge

Sane people should be scared of crap like this...its behavior modification. If it works against eating disorders, it can work against political beliefs, opinions, religious beliefs, and just about anything we think.

However, if someone is so dense that they cannot put down the fried chicken and gravy to literally save their life, they likely are not worrying about the possible misuse of this type of tech to begin with.

Statements like this make no sense: "“I like renewables and having our grid have a lot of wind in the mix"

So you like having an inferior system that is unable to produce consistent reliable results while killing a lot of birds?

He even proves my point in the next line.

A man is suing Don Lemon, claiming the CNN host attacked him at a Hamptons bar last summer. The suit, obtained by Mediaite, was filed Sunday and seeks

Democrats: "Always believe the accuser unless its against a democrat"

Realistically though, unless this guy has some evidence or someone can corroborate his claim, I treat it like every other accusation, innocent until proven guilty. I hate Lemon, but Hice needs more than just a retelling of a story to make this actually mean something.

I read or saw somewhere there was another less meltdowny element that can be used for nuclear energy...maybe it was thorium or something like that. But, good old USA passed on it because while it has great energy potential, it has very little weaponized potential.

Seems like we should revisit alternate nuclear energies instead of weak animal killing wind farms and short lived soon to be hazardous waste solar panels.

Build that shit deep underground with collapsible ventilation just in case.

But, I am no energy expert, I just think there are cleaner things than coal, better things than wind and solar, and less potentially catastrophic than plutonium or uranium.

Chris Cuomo was captured during a heated exchange with a man who called him "Fredo," which Cuomo says is a racist slur comparable to the N-word.

"Punk (expletive) from the right call me 'Frodo.' My name is Chris Baggins. I’m an anchor on The `Shire."
