Default Thanks Chezlaw for The Ancestor\'s Tale Recommendation

Got the book last saturday morning. I have not been able to put it down and have completed it now. Good, back to a bit more poker and other readings. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I would say that if anyone reads this book and still holds on a remnant of a creationist idea, I just don't know?!

This book does not avoid pointing out the gaps, controversies etc. abaout Evolution, so should please creationists would like quotation out of context to support their ideology. Yet, there is hope than in reading this book, even with the wrong intention they will be so convinced by the sheer scope of the tapistry/panorama that the book covers that they could not be anything but convinced, imo.

As for me, I was a convinced evolutionist before, but it brought my knowledge up to date. My last foray was reading about 20 related, and current at that time, books, about 13 years or so ago. Boy, knowledge has advanced and all so confirmative too. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Chez, I owe you one. Thanks again.

On another note, your avatar. I always thought it was you playing a pan pipe. But I just blew it up because I thought it may have been a cigar (and I am into cigars). At 200% it could have been one of those rugby ball shaped cigars, I thought. So I blew it to 400% and lo and behold... [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I saw the cap and then that marvelously small object, that could contain remants of a cigar, but whose size betrays its symbolic importance. LOL

Good on you, this year. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
