Exposing the Ignorance and Evil Behind the Pandemic with Alex Berenson
"Yes, so let's just start there. I mean, February 2020, you were like investigating marijuana and other things and then the virus comes and you just decided, I'm gonna start looking into this and I started to come across your stuff on sub stack where, you know, Aaron gin, who you might know is another guy that was really into it in the early days. And I was so outspoken about the lockdowns and I was we were really into it because I really had nothing else to do. Everything was locked down. And I'm by no means an expert, but just my common sense instincts that something's wrong and you are so informative and so courageous early on, walk us through that because you probably never planned to be center stage of one of the most important medical issues that humanity's ever faced. No, I certainly didn't. And, you know, I was working on a book about really about U.S. drug policy that would have been and I hope to write one day still a follow-up to tell your children sort of broadly about this, you know, the epidemic of legalization, the sort of very broad campaign to legalize drugs that we've seen and not just cannabis, but really all drugs that we've seen in the last ten or 15 years. And so I was working on that and then of course, you know, like everybody else, I saw the videos coming out of China. I think we were all pretty nervous back in January and February. And then in March 2020 and I talk about this in pandemia, I've read that Neil Ferguson report the imperial college London report that said, oh, if we don't do anything, 2 million Americans will die, but even worse, if we do, if we do mitigate a million Americans will die and we need to really lock down our society. And, you know, within days that started to happen in New York and California and everywhere else, and then and then amazingly to me, Neil Ferguson totally changed his prediction. Ten days after releasing this report that really shocked the world and pushed the United States and Europe into Loch Ness, he basically said, oh, you know what? I was wrong. I was wrong by 95%. Did I say 500,000 deaths? I'm at 20,000. Okay, so look, the science or the data was evolving very fast around the coronavirus. Back at that time. And everybody's got the right to look at new data and change their views. But what was shocking to me was that the media was not willing to acknowledge what Ferguson had

"That is you have people who you have. People who have access to technology and people don't so you'll start to see divisions among our species based on access to technology you'll start to see more of a human induced conscious evolution and try to influence our genome in certain ways and the problem with that is not very smart. You know whenever we try to manipulate a system. There's always the unintended consequences which we didn't expect and you can just see this an example after example so that would be my my one of my largest concerns. Obviously as we simply don't know enough about systems too complex systems to mess around with them to send the wilt could be able to make predictions about what will happen But no i mean if you think about it this story writing itself over one hundred two thousand years. Our ability to manipulate our genome is going to be a big part of the human story and the question is how are we is a species going to handle that will it be. Just people do the experiment and then you know And then market forces will take over or will there be more collective decisions about what the appropriate kinds of behavior and maybe have taboo for certain kinds of Behaviors ghost in humans. Taboo works very well. There are certain things that are classically taboo and lines. We don't cross the is can we will. We have those first certain certain types of technologies. Yeah the first thing that comes to mind for me is one of the things that you mentioned which is a type of economical. Eugenics almost where you have near the wealth class getting access to those type of technologies sooner in having certain health and then just visual of opportunities that people who couldn't afford to have that budding technology wouldn't have and it would create just an epoch separation between the wealth and the struggling classes on earth. Oh that's right. I mean you can imagine they could be in terms of their capabilities in terms of their performance their lifespans that could be considered different species right. Yeah and that's that's scary to me you know and because we've been talking about the human fat i've been talking about connections right about the human family is being connected to the rest life on our planet. Now we're talking about how technology could separate us and i find that particularly an unappealing Future wall. neil man. Thank you so much for coming on the show. This is really fine and super fascinating. You're an incredible guy and thank you for all the work demands. It's really great. My pleasure thanks for.

"And one of the things that clearly shows. Is that when we do. The chimp comparison that genes that are involved in making our brains much bigger. Some of them actually did have a relatively rapid period of evolution. Starting a few million years ago and we can document that pretty carefully. We'd also document that in the fossil record we can look and see the fossils and we can measure their their cranial capacities and we can begin to see well. Okay does cranial capacity. You know how big your brain is relative to your body size. How does that fit with the kinds of tools. These creatures are these. these are descended. our ancestors are making Do as larger brain you know is associate with more complicated tools and and then some general. It is So we can map that all out you know and we can say human brain size both genetically as well as we look at it. Anatomically was increasing very rapidly over the past few million years.

Neil is a evolutionary biologist and paleontologist and an author who is new book called some assembly required decoding four billion years of life from ancient fossils to dna. And this is a really fascinating podcasts. I feel like evolution is one of those ideas that a lot of people who they quote unquote believe or trust the science about and they would easily say yes. I believe in evolution. But then don't know so much about the actual details of how we came from. You know so little soupy stuff to what we are today to less soupy stuff to a big bag filled with soupy stuff. We've really changed a lot over the last few billion years. We've gone from being Less more liquidity to taller more vertical and more complicated versions of something liquidity with a nice container to keep all that stuff together but anyway we really go through a lot of interesting and just kind of fascinating Stages and approaches entry points to evolution in this podcast and neil does a great job breaking it down.

Fed Considers Tapering Bond Purchases as Economy Grows
"So much talk about so little time and that is not. I promise you just me trying to get to the good stuff. It actually has been a busy week. Genus malik is at the new york. Times neil richardson is at adp. Hey you too. I kinda hake so neil and let me start with you I want to discuss a little bit. chair powell and his press conference this week in which he said In literally so many words that the fed has made that substantial further progress Or is very close to it to start to reduce its bond buying program the taper He said we've more than gotten there and inflation as we've talked about many times on this program not quite yet on jobs and i guess my question is we've been told it's going to take on another twelve months or a year or year and a half for the for the job market to recover. Why do you think the fed is gonna taper now. Well they are going to reduce their bond buying for one reason and one reason only they wanna get bang for the buck. They're spending a hundred twenty billion dollars a month on bonds. They wanna see some effect in early on. When everything was in chaos in the financial markets and bonds that were considered safe started acting very risky ways. That were unpredictable. That bond buying helped stabilize everything. It was a success story but bang has faded into a whimper. It's not really having a lot of effet particularly in the jobs. Market that has bottlenecks. That are more amenable to fiscal policy in action than monetary policy. Junior you're on that You're on that video. Call with chair. Powell you're probably paying closer attention than i was. But i don't think anywhere. He said the word transitory about inflation. Did that strike you at all. You know. I think it is interesting. I think there's been a real short of decision. Among monetary policymakers to start being a bit more cautious in the way that they talk about inflation either they still say that there are these temporary forces pushing inflation up. There's no reason to believe that they're going to last forever. But i think we've all become a lot more modest about how long we think temporary is going be you know because it's earlier in the year. They thought these these temporary dislocations we're gonna fade within a few months now. It's like pretty obvious that they're not gonna fade until we're well into next year and i think they're real questions about you. Know how how quickly supply chains in particular are going to get back to any kind of normal

And he's still running you know when and finishing is well as he gave to be second in the derby and also. I also had the pleasure of kind of going through a few of those races like even a couple of the bluegrass you know with with somebody like call master. Who's always been held in the highest regard in the industry And then and then going on to the preakness and things kind of being reversed It was just I i knew about it now. I'm not sure if. I knew how big was to be honest with you. At the time i knew. Was you have to train. You have to do things the same but it just so hard to describe when you're running into the classics it. It's a different ball game altogether. And i think any trainer. That's been in. It would tell you that you really can't put your finger on it but there's something about it but of course when the s. and it i would honestly say probably resonated with me Fully resonated with me kinda well after. I left that room. If you know what. I mean yeah you know that win in the preakness came eleven years after your first career winter. Knock knock bird and i mentioned that horses. We were going to the commercial break. I also mentioned the fact that he paid forty three sixty to win at river downs on that day. In one thousand nine hundred seventy nine and neil howard's career was often running but neil i joked you during the commercial break i said. How on earth did we get. Forty three sixty on knock knock bird that day and you said well. It's a new trainer just starting out. Nobody knew who we were. Tell me about the early days of of neil howard in that win and having your wife by your side. Yeah it was fun and us. Own nerve racking. I remember got started. And i'll never forget it because we we got our. We bought the equipment we needed and rented apartment. Cincinnati got their. Got off feet of water buckets in got all stuff and and then we we were got a bond set up down. Start out with seven horses. I remember we'd like. I think it was either two hundred and sixteen or three hundred sixteen dollars left in the bank when we got started and and but we couldn't have been enjoying it more and You know it was just a we. Were nervous to start out with and then you know. It was funding coming down. Meet meeting some new people. But you know it to this day. I always felt like this. Is it it. that's another thing that resonated with me. I remember that going somewhere. Didn't really know that. Partly anybody there but you just starting out on your own. What if you says and people everybody. The first day we thought training. Who got the bond immediately. I doing way from you. Know what what kinda got their you know talking to you like they knew all your life did know him five minutes. Yup and that's that's one. I said you know what this is. No cooler place in the world and the race track of it. Didn't you tell me that. Your wife susan was galloping at that time but she was pregnant when she was doing it. Yes yes yes he will she. She got pregnant while while she was working. My said look honey. You you gotta keep ryden too. So i know. I know but Yes so that. Was you know that was all of like the every. Starting family at river downs and But it was. It was a it was fun. 'cause you know having that built in top exercise rider re really really helped had what three hundred dollars in the bank. Neil you couldn't afford to pay an exercise rider. She had to keep going and paying one. She'll be forced to tell you that. That's another conversation but Yeah it was. It was fun. You always a little nervous. Obviously because no matter how much you trained to do anything as soon as you start on your own you know. You're you're going to be a little bit on edge about it but but it all worked out good but but the way people you know race jack people. They're all about. We might be running against each other in the afternoon but for the most part is not anything that another another outfit or another trainer. Wouldn't do for you. You know that saying that says behind every good man is a great woman or something along those lines. And it's so true for you and for susan what you've been to accomplish. Oh not even a win on halftime that conversation. Believe me your children. Are they interested or involved in racing in any way other than loving what i did and come into the races Daughter rode show horses. While because that's sues background and she kinda lost interested in but she. It's a shame because he was a good writer. She took after mother quite But more just just liking the races but none of them really data involved in it. What do you think. Neil is you now do get a little time to look back and reflect upon these forty two years that you've been training horses. What would you say is going to be the one thing or maybe the couple of things that you're most proud of i tell you the truth. It just became apparent to me over the last few days by actually by virtue of just like this conversation. You're having right now. You know you you you i i mean first of all were you know the camaraderie on the racetrack. To me is is is unlike is unprecedented. It's unlike any other any other industry But.

A lot of lawns are turning Brown and not looking too great right now. Part of that is because they have dried up. It's gotten drive he hadn't noticed. Some lawns. Some areas have had good rain. Farther south, you go the more rain they've had, but But other areas are very, very dry. And there has been quite an influx of armyworms a week or two ago, and they will strip the The blades off Bermuda grass, and so if you have Bermuda grass, and you find that you just have wiry stems left out there that maybe what happened? It's a good idea to fertilize your lawn with an all nitrogen, high quality fertilizer with 30 35% of that nitrogen is slow release form and then water it in well and and the grass will rebound pretty quickly. So that would be, I guess.

I don't know whether I'm putting them in a bad place. The last one I got Back in the spring. I got it in a big pot and it was doing good and all I want It looks started dying. Looks like from the side and now the whole plants nearly dead. So some people say that these two Bs and desert plan needs to be dry and other people. So I don't know whether I'm trying not to over water for a while and Get any better, So I'm not for sure What exactly? I'm doing. What size What size part? Do you have it in the one before was I got it in the ground. They got bought one in the part about a gallon size or Bigger. Maybe it was pretty good size of pop was about 80 inches. In diameter. And about you know, is a good size, but the one that Okay, I got mixed up. I'm sorry. I thought you were going in container. You have it in the ground done both. But this one is in the ground, and I thought it was doing good. Okay. Got all I got all that. So you're losing them both in a container. And then once that you were planted in the ground? Yes, sir. All right. Rosemary plants need, um They need a fair amount of moisture, but they need to be well drained and another words. Uh, you don't want to plant them on flat ground in a low area. Where where During which periods are going to soak up a lot of moisture. Our soils tend to get wet and stay wet. Unless unless we have a plant growing on a on a berm or in a raised bed, Rosemary would be a great plan to use in a raised bed where it's up four or five inches above the surrounding grade, either by retaining Well retaining wall or a edging strip or a slight berm or something where incident water from rainfall would drain away and go out into the yard and down the street or whatever. You don't want to plant it in a low spot. In a pot I find people tend to buy a plant put it in a pot where it looks just right at home in the in the pot, and then the plane gets bigger than the pot and it gets root bound and And they let them get too dry. Rosemary doesn't wilt And so you don't really realize that the plant has gotten too dry. And so in one case when they're in the ground, often people have them in places where they could get waterlogged and when they're in pots often they're in positive too small and they get to dry. So it's It's both extremes. It Yeah, in a place. It shouldn't be getting waterlogged. You know what I mean? So I was kind of, you know, happy with it for about a couple of months and then all at once. I don't know, because it's been a lot hotter or something, or no. They can handle the heat. What months did die outside the ground? What month It's been dying for about the last month. All right, well, it may have gotten dry. Also, A new plant doesn't have roots going far and wide, usually with rosemary, unless you have a really cold winter, and if you have chosen a more upright variety that the taller varieties tend to be much more winter hardy. In my experience and my observations. The taller varieties tend to go through our winters better than the trailing types. Uh, And if you're in a protected spotter, If you have it tucked up against the house, it will have a better chance of making it through a cold spell. Anyway to my point. If you can get it established and it's been growing for a year, then the roots are out for and wide and it's not at risk to dry up, but a new plant that's only been in the ground for a month or two. It's pretty easy to let them get too dry. Brian, I can't I can't figure out. I can't figure out without seeing the plant watching. You operate what might have killed it. They don't have a common problem that I can Point my finger at and say, Hey, it's got to be such and such because there isn't any such and such with Rosemary. They're pretty durable plants. It's usually related to moisture. Okay, all right. I'll try to maybe maybe getting right rather than I'm thinking in the ground. So I only Yeah, it only takes one time. You need to check them every day or two and just feel the soil and when it begins to feel a little bit dry to the touch, soak it deeply and then wait for that cycle to happen again and soak it again. All right. Thank you very much for your welcome very much appreciate the call. Let's go to Brian in Dallas now, Brian, this is Neil. Good afternoon. Let me get you off my Speaker there Good to speak to you again after all these years. Thank you Sit in the last several weeks. You were speaking to somebody about elephant ears, and I only caught the conversation on and off. In part I remember was you were discussing the difference in tubers and bulbs. And how to winter them. And I've got some of the giant ones, one of the bulbs, winning the ground about the size of a football. Or £1 coffee can and there's tall as I am or close to it. And I lost a few of the newer ones when it hit four degrees close to the other ones have come back. Just fine. Is there any tip? Or primaries in on how to winter. Those best. Well, the whole group of caladiums and cold locations, uh, are handled You can dig them if you want to. And store them. Caladiums are different, uh, different situation. I guess I shouldn't lump them together. I prefer to leave my elephant ears out in the ground. And put mulch over them. If I'm all do anything, usually in my case, they come back, and we're in a colder area than you are. We're in McKinney and you'll notice that Denton and McKinney are usually colder than the Dallas area, if you because the urban heat pocket if you have, um Have them in a fairly protected spot. I would take sure to tree leaves that you get off your lawn in the fall and just pile them up over them, shredded through the lawnmower and pile them over the elephant ears after the first freeze. Or even as they're wilting down, Uh, before the first freeze and Just leave that in places a thermal blanket for them, and they should make it through Almost all winters. Last year was an aberration. People who were growing banana plants and elephant ears and Other things that were marginally winter. Hardy, uh,.
Justices Blast Texas Abortion Ruling
"All four dissenting judges justices filed opinions. Some scathing against the majority's refusal to block that texas law that virtually bands abortion chief justice. John roberts who joined the court's three liberals wrote quote the statutory scheme before the court is not only unusual but unprecedented end quote justice. Sonia so to my order was much more direct quote saying quote a majority of justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand. She goes on to say it cannot be the case that a state can evade federal judicial scrutiny. By outsourcing the enforcement of unconstitutional laws to its citizenry with us again. I kneel cocktail department of justice veteran and former acting solicitor general during the obama administration. He argued dozens of cases before the united states supreme court. Neil good to see you. Thank you for being with us. We need your clarity on this. What did chief justice john roberts in describing this as unusual and unprecedented the bottom line is the supreme court basically gave a thumbs up to the overruling of roe versus wade so abortion clinics as of yesterday in texas are essentially closed to all patients. And what the court west texas yesterday can be enacted tomorrow in other states in deed will other states Code already Said they're gonna try to enact such legislation and so with the chief justice was referring to was. This is a really weird. Texas scheme outlawed abortion after six weeks effectively. But it said the state isn't gonna enforced instead. It created vigilante justice. Any private citizen could sue anyone. Who's helping anyone get an abortion so if you'd like take an uber to the ocean clinic this law said you can the uber driver and sue them anywhere in texas including far away from their homes and seek ten thousand dollars in damages against them plus attorneys
Who Are the Belarusian Cyber Partisans?
"The first place. I want to talk about these actually. From patrick neil at mit technology review. And i think he's written probably one of the stories here About the cyber partisans in belarus. These this is the group that claimed to be hacktivists. Who ex filled a whole bunch of Data that's critical to the functioning of the belarusian. Sort of security apparatus and. Yeah he's got he's got right up really talking about this group. It's interesting stuff. Yes this is a really good return to the because we talked wasn't two or three weeks ago on the show win by. I started dropping some of the things that this group the partisans had hacked out the various interstate security apparatus in belarus. And this kind of goes back and looks at. That story has a bunch more details about kind of the makeup of the group They should be saying something. Like fifteen ish people bounce from the work in the tech industry and belarus in general and a few that have some sub security experience about what kind of learning to hack on the fly supported by a whole bunch of ex patriots involuntary ex patriot belarussian police and other state security people that fled the country after you know some of the bad things down in las relations and they end up providing support and gardens and analytics To help them go through. The process of making the most of the networks have a gangster. I think this kind of spitballing at times like it. Is this exactly what it sounds like. Is it really activists and local did initially talk about this. We came down on the side of well. This actually looks like it might be genuine kind of weird and it starts is to see some stories that back out that feel that we have at the time because we were going on. I'm pretty thin input at that at that point in the story but this is just an i was reading. This and i'm struck by this is like really walked inside a threat. Looks like you know we. We've seen so much has been made in writing about computer security over the you know the the dangers of insiders. This is really the in game of of insider when your own national government is using the people who work the mechanics of your national governments have security apparatus tuning against you and then using those tolls against the government and that's just a. That's inside three writ large and it's really interesting to see.

"To. Neil thomas the author of a terrific new book Not a big book. it's called taking leave of darwin. neil. I didn't mean to get you off on the subject of schliemann and his but i i'm interested in the invention his idea the trojan horse his idea and i literally read yesterday that somebody thinks they've found it seems preposterous to me would be made of wood and so on and so forth so i didn't mean to get you off on that i wanna talk more about your book unless you have something to say about the trojan horse cold with this is reputation as being a trixie kind of fellow that he would. You'd have that idea what doesn't seem to me. Totally perspicuous is that i understood that went schliemann excavated troy. He went down to deep. You didn't actually hit his proper. So where this whole says. I don't know. I haven't seen what you've seen but i will keep an eye out for that. It whole thing's crazy. We'll follow up on that just as a what an interesting. Yeah hoping to sell a few copies of your book because it was such a fun. Read for me. It's why i wanted to get you on here The book is taking leave of darwin. What made you think of writing an entire book on the subject. In other words this it's one thing to have some thoughts. It's another yes your neck out yes i understand. Wh what you mean. I think what what happened. I originally wrote an article which i submitted to journal new humanist in mumbai them and they were interested in but in the end they decided not to not to publish it because they said we'll take 'em we've taken advice from scientific colleagues and they say don't publish when i can imagine if if you're the guild of biologists who on homework yesterday they wouldn't take very timely to the to this kind of argument so what happened was that i kept on being interested in the subject still interested in an coming to to write a second book which we can talk about some of the time. Perhaps the so i i kept on working on it and they sort of ballooned so it came from an article. It became became a chop dozen two chapters and so on the rest is history. It it it it came from that point you think that there is an openness out there in the academy to rethinking darwin fundamentally because you go back in the book and you talk about with some of his earlier critics yes satellite. That was just dispensed with eventually. And then we've gotten onto the darwinist juggernaut do is an opening in these days to to rethink this or to be more critical of it. I would very much doubt it to be candid with you. I don't think that Somebody in my position without biological credentials would would be able to hack it where people far more a higher up in the biological hierarchy have written some of the things before under not been able to penetrate is Armagh this darwinian on the biologists way otherwise so it strikes me that anytime. One is not in a discipline. They seem to have a freedom that those in the discipline don't have in other words. Those in the discipline say no one who is not a tenured. Biologists in the academy can write down the subject and so in a way people outside the field can can sync within the freedom can think across disciplines and so they bring perspective to it that people deep in the field often. Don't have david berlin ski in someone else who's written brilliantly. He's also an agnostic. And you use have as you put it any skin in the game. You can look at it more freely without fear of triggering your colleagues in the department so to speak so one other thing i think is i mean i'm to some extent duplicating the point remai- but there's a great kind of disjunction between the biological of the docs on watch philosophers who Who who of a on analyzed this this subject how have come up with philosophers have tended to suggest that the there is no basis. I've more or less suggested i have suggested. I mean the peop- business on legendary british philosopher. Mary mitchly who was so was so. Dismissive of richard dawkins is calms conception about about memes and so on and much else. Besides that legend has it that richard conducive impelled to turn down a an invitation to appear with. Mary midgely on the same platform because he feared feed facing her over the breakfast table in in that conference. I mean the out sounds a bit. I mean it only a humorous point but all the point is this that there is a very radical disjunction between people like myself who look at it dispassionately. I'm like philosophers of a loss. I wouldn't philosopher a story anything and under biological contrary who else stick together and maintain the wnba party. Nine well again. I mentioned the david. Berlin ski also professor of law. Yes i often think that people outside a discipline can see things more clearly and can simply think without fear. And that's what. I think he's done in the book. It really is a terrific book. You're writing a is what recommends it most highly. I think that the u You right wonderfully you almost right in an english accent but not quote by us. We have thirty seconds. Tell us about the new book your writing in in just a few seconds. Well it's i tended to try drill down on some of the arguments is some of the themes that i've looked and and i'm playing with the title of darwin's theory theory evolution of a cosmic genetic myth. Which is kind of all march to my stanton's imagine yes nine. I just look. We'll have to have you back soon. If you don't mind taking leave of darwin. A terrific read by. Neil thomas neil.
Why Is Fasting Bad for Menopause?
"Well. I don't think fasting is bad for menopause. In fact i would argue that. Menopausal women have this incredible advantage because they're not dealing with having monthly cycles not having significant fluctuations like they did when they were still cyprian between estrogen and progesterone. Each month their bodies are not in a place where they're going to procreate they're not going to have to maintain and sustain of pregnancy and so therefore biologically. I think that are an advantage. I think it's it's a time when We have to mitigate stress. We have to be really proactive. I remind everyone that knit middle ages the time when our bodies will remind us if we are not being conscientious enough about software strategies so that includes high quality sleep that includes stress management that includes removing inflammatory foods from our diet that includes not over exercising. Which is the typical tendency. We think when you have to work out harder to lose weight than we did when we were younger and really. It's it's all the other things. I've just kind of mentioned yet to be workout smarter. Not harder and so. I don't think fasting. As bad for menopause and backed i think most women as they transition into their early forties with the loss of esther dial which is the active form of estrogen is. That's kind of petering off People's appetites shift and change and so it's much easier for people to eat less often. It is the the you know. The desire gede naby decreased and so getting up in the morning and getting a workout in and get your kids off to school or getting yourself to were You're not focused on having to get that. First neil end so i really do believe that utilized with the other strategies that i've already kind of alluded to stress management making sure that uber removed inflammatory foods and and the big ones. Are you know gluten. And

Darwin Used Charm to Blunt Academic Attacks on Natural Selection
"Darwin we if you look at the sepia tinted photographs of darwin. You see him as a roberson victorian gentleman that you would have to watch appeasement jews with in reality. He seems to be a very sociable probable person. He seems to inspire an. I don't use this word like he. Did he inspired a lot of brotherly love from his surra surrounding. And i feel that they did not want to tread on his toes. By saying we think you'll theory of natural selection will not fly. They try to trim their responses to him because they love in a fraternal sense. And they want. They wanted to help him And this is surprising. I wish i could inspire so much lovers. Charles darwin it would. It would help me a lot socially and professionally my life but anyway he. He extorted extent he made people blunck's their attacks on him because he was such a job when fellow. I think so you think that I mean in the book. You say beware. You've been fooled. In other words that that darwin through his social graces and and through his the way he wrote He basically as i think you said dulled the criticisms and enable this theory which as far as you're concerned has no actual scientific backing enable it to go forward through the decades so that those opposed to stump theistic solution grabbed it and said we have to make this work even though it has problems. There's nothing better and then you say that. What does it matter whether there's any thing better. Either this works or

I if they if they fall out of line with with with with with darwin's thinking yes yes half the about that but more. So i i think that no. I'm not a person of faith but my my wife is.

Any theistic interpretation. The idea of god. And mike nichols wrong. Wrong am i do. And i was rather discount allies to real to realize that the anglican church back in two thousand eight had made a public apology to darwin. Well i think that's because i don't know what is approved in syria toll by any is in particular the anglican church. They're not exactly known for their cultural bravery. But i guess curious about your process in other words as you begin to look into this. What were some of the arguments against darwinism or what was it. That was occurring to you. As you looked into this one of the things. I i looked at the origin of space. As am i looked at Descent of man which is sort of pendant companion volume two to it and the way that darwin argues and uses. Language is a very amateurish. An impressionistic unbeaten. It's very wiggling and tries to get in the way that advertising off political propaganda he he gives everything a spin or gloss. And i i interpret that as being very suspicious because he flies that he doesn't he's not really sure of his facts. These talk to whole pullover is and push one over on us. And so i did. I did use my sort of training if you like of for many decades tucson to try and unmask what i thought with some of the false pretensions of his writing. It's fascinating here. You say because that's the one thing Typically that you don't hear another people looking at him. Not just as a scientist but as a writer peter and you you did I don't use the term in england but we say you know the that he. He's putting english on the ball in billiards. Said he's basically trying rather than simply presenting the facts he he's making an argument That at the lay reader. Maybe wouldn't notice that that he's doing that. Yes i think so. I mean in many ways. He was a very decent individual but he had his faults. And i think that he wasn't sometimes he wasn't straight with his audience or readership mice. I'm also he was quite rather equivocating in his own mind. He didn't sometimes knows his own. Mind i mean. You've got to remember the darwin despite his being fated by posterity was rather average school by to say to say the least of conceptual clarity was not one of his great strengths. It seems to me. unpeopled people tend to praise him to the rooftops as if he was some sort of einstein. Thank that was not the case to be to be fair to him. In his autobiography he admits as much he says. I'm not as bright as my system. For instance and before of him as rather than you know which is which is tremendous. I like that kind of refreshing. Under what are some of the arguments and you go through a If somebody goes through the book taking leave of darwin which i enjoyed immensely a i think because of your own writing style. It's very engaging. So so what are some of the arguments against darwinism. Or what are some of the things that you notice that people will finding the book. Well on the evidence i suppose is that there is no empirical backup for. What his planes. There is. No empirical backup of hybridization of animals modulating from one animal into another dominance theory is not just a few biological tacoma's he suggesting that you and i developed ultimately from bacterial beings and it took to accept that you would need a little bit more proof. I think worms are not in in evidence in the fossil record. Is that what you mean. Not an evidence undone and to his credit says in the origin of species nature. Should if i if i were right in the state of uproar we we should have you know dogs and cats and cats power powerfull horses but nothing of the sort exists on the also nothing. The salt exists in the fossil record. Either i mean dobbin piously hope. The fossil record would redeem his reputation in the in the sense that we've had since since he he wrote the book and saw but that is not the case. The the fossil record is most under winning. If it might put it lot animals come come to be as a result of they seem to be fully formed creation had created them individually. I have to site not. I'm surprising myself. But i have to say that. Because that is where. The scientific evidence points to from the so-called cambrian explosion of animal lives five hundred forty million years ago. There are no transitional forms. So what do you think. What do the proponents of blind darwinism so so-called did they say about this for my audience to say. Tell us because isn't this thing. Most of us are led to believe in school that this is settled That they're a when i talk to certain scientific friends. They they're aghast that. I wouldn't have accept this. You're saying that that at the record is increasingly clear that there are not transitional forms and we mean between species than others. We can find a finches would with different beaks. We can find what's called micro evolution but man volusia and all the decades now a century and a half. There's nothing so when do proponents of this say in answer to that to the candidate there is no convincing straight answer to this..

Ace is the place with the helpful hardware folks. And now here's Neil. Thank you stupid, very, very much. Welcome to our number two just likes to be just said from one till three every Saturday I enjoy doing this program very much. I started out at this time slot on this frequency with different coal letters back in 1978. It was w f A A. M, then And just through miracles of of relicensing announce Calif. AM, So there we go. And I'll be on W B A P 8:20 A.m. tomorrow morning and that's eight until 10 and the only way I get to tell you that is because their sister stations otherwise I'd be off both. So anyway. Mike Bass is running the boards and answering the phones and Doing everything that requires High intellect, and he does it very, very well and he will be over at VP. Let's see over is what Mike is that one floor up and two doors down or something like the cross the hall. Oh, that's right. Obviously I'm broadcasting in a different facility. I'm broadcasting from my office, actually, and, uh so That's that. So give me a call. If I can help you with the plank question. We have one line open. We're going to go back to Bob and Fort Worth Almost instantaneously. Er 888787 k l I f 8887875543 and let's do that right now. Let's go back to Bob and Fort Worth and Bob. We're talking about deer resistant plants, and I fear that you are looking for Something that may or may not be achievable. You're looking for a plant will cause dear not to want to come onto your property is that it? No, really, We're we can't keep the deer all we're looking You. There seems to be yes, I'm here. Do you hear me? Yeah, I do now. Yes, I'm sorry. We were looking for cat meant which we understand, dear. Don't like the smell of To put around our flower beds and everything, but the only cat meant we've been able to find is one Species at Calloway's And that catnip the deer like just fine, So we're trying to find out where we could. What other nurses are healthy. You look for some more. Types of cat mint. All right. Uh, you're saying cat mint and not catnip? Correct? Well, I think catnip is a form of cat meant No, I think they're I think they're different. You're probably kind of late in the season to be looking for unusual herbs. Um You might try North Haven gardens. You might call them in Dallas and see what they have. They typically have had a pretty good selection of herbs, always through the years, so that would be a starting point. I would think Um and whether it's going to work or not, I don't know. Um, I don't speak to that while I was in the news break. I did. As I said, I would do do some research because I knew that there was a very good article. And, uh, I'll mention it to you whether you know if you want to write down what I'll give you that be great. And if if, if not, then there are others who will Because this is a question that comes up periodically deer or not yet a major problem in the Metroplex they are to the West and Southwest, and that's probably where you are. This is called deer resistant landscape plants. It is a Texas A and M publication. Uh and it is from San Antonio from Bear County B e X, A R Bear County and the man who has authored this. I know. And that is forest. Appleton Forest is with two R's forest Appleton. He works with my very good friend, Dr Jerry Parsons as his assistant. And I think it may be a volunteer position. But Forest is a retired Texas certified nurse your professional. He has assembled a lengthy list of deer resistant plants, not what you're looking for, but deer resistant plants. I'm not aware of anything that's going to repelled, dear. From the edge of a flower bid. I think that is bogus. I think they'll just lean over. Um, I want to read and this list is quite lengthy and I want to read a paragraph that I was looking at. Um That that he has put into this list. I read the whole story during the news kissed. Um and This one paragraph Much has been written and said about what the serious gardener can do to lessen the impact of deer in his landscape. That's usually includes a listing of those plants that deer are not supposed to like in the unqualified, unqualified statement. That repellents exist, defend them off your prized plants. I have found these writings and proclamations to be of little value to the person who is trying to put some variety into his landscape and do his share to improve the beauty of his surroundings. At the end of this article, I will list those plants which I through trial and error have found to be least bothered by the deer. So he is acknowledging that there's a lot written. That is pretty bogus. And I have found that to be the case as well. He has a lot of plants listed in here that I know to be resistant and forest works with Jerry Parsons on a lot of things, one of the things being the production of the red, white and blue blue bonnets. And I just They're a great team. So anyway, I would. I would commend that to you. It's extension, education and bear County deer resistant landscape plants in easy Find online with that search. Okay? Okay. I do appreciate your help, Neal. You bet you, Bob. Good luck with it. And I know I know how quickly they can decimate things. I helped our son redo his landscape this spring, The joy was yelling at everybody in their neighborhood. To get it redone because of the cold damage, and we put a bunch of Holly's in and rabbits stripped all of his dwarf Burford Hollies. I mean, just absolutely stripped them. And if rabbits leaf, those deer will eat anything, and so it's just so frustrating. So, anyway. Good luck with appreciate your call. Wayne is in Weatherford. He'll be our next call up and that opens up two lines now for you. If you'd like to call, it's your turn. 888787 K l i f 8887875543 were thrown Brothers roofing company.

Solid and it's gotTa pace you would. You would like to see if you've got a closer, but you know talk about the winter. She really you know. After the libra, she only had a little break after keeneland the LA. Brea than you were down in New Orleans. You gave her that turf try. Talk about the three to four transition. Well. The La brea she kinda got moved a little too early moved on backside. Coming around the turn wide, which is the move? I hate the absolute most wide around the turn. So you lose momentum and distance with all that. And she moved, she went from next last two third, and then just kinda flattened out in the Lebron, plus with the ship and everything. and. Then there really wasn't a lot of spots to runner I could've taken to hot springs. which I really didn't want to do or just stay the fairgrounds and try around the turf. She'd one on the turf down there the year before, but was going mile. And not, against. You know the sex race, but it wasn't a really top stake race..

"It hadn't occurred to me until just now when I when I went to look because I knew that that Neil Hasn't won plenty of races in recent years but I knew it'd been awhile since he had won a great at stake and keeneland congratulations thank you very much we like winning at King Fun well yeah but it's okay to win a steak Churchill too Lord fairgrounds well we've been a nose greatest thanks to Churchill and well the lighted for not just for you Ah Obviously Mr Loath back and this is a terrific win with a Philly that you you just never you never are gave up thinking that you know she had these these kinds of performances in her talk about the year and getting a big win for bells the one well you know after the acorn she didn't run her best race in the ACORN and we turned out for about three weeks. and brought her back and just came back slow with her and we prevented the Dogwood virtual and if she doesn't cozy then she won by two and a quarter and set the stakes record by full second should should have gone into the end of the range and runs you'd have been probably third or fourth choice seven to one since phoebe was in there and she beat his eight links and but she almost she came within one hundred seven seconds of the track record that Groupie doll set you know not one they kinda discounted phillies she's never really gotten a lot of respect the whole year and she's done nothing but runner eyeballs out and then of the me were a great philly it's funny because I mentioned you were going to join us and I I was clanking around in my head when which of the stakes this year that I watched with you at it was the Acorn and even at thirty two one you didn't necessarily expect to win but you did expect a a better effort and it it just you know really never really came together but regrouped and took a portion of the summer off at that point and then went onto the Dogwood I mean the the fact is she's run into virtually every three year old filly all year long including break even back in you know on Derby Day yeah big rights to be second there yeah exactly exactly she is interesting because she was she was purchased as a as a affiliated with real potential because one hundred fifty five thousand for majestic perfection at that point you know that's a that that was real money talk about her development to get to this point well I think drought and the fact that Tipton summer sale last two years ago and she just very athletic so she's not the most correct philly in the world but she's good enough but she's very she's very very athletic looking in fact her sister I'm going out to look at right now the Tober sale at has probably up so we we got her she goes they go to chesapeake formed start and they go down to Chat Stuart Florida it'd be broke and then I get them up but Well two years ago last year was at Arlington would be Churchill but she she developed Arlington far I gotta you know probably around June last year and we made our first started Arlington and she she went out there she'd been working antastic I mean the worst run the form to five eight hundred fifty nine bullet work and she goes off I think it's thirty two to one first time out which made no sense to me is a nice field but it was you know she had really Nice Works and done nothing wrong and when drove off and wins by four then we come to Qinglin and she wins easy of an allowance rates and they other than they will go down the fairgrounds and I was Kinda hoping we ran into lightly which was a sprint in December and she went that pretty handily and then trying to get her in the same she'd go grab because three year old fillies these egg Naroda ground and she kept getting sick on me we had entered a couple of times getting ready to enter the preps for the oaks and she just kept getting little stuff that we had just give her two weeks off for a week off header on antibiotics a couple of times so I ended up instead of running we scratched out of all the prep races so just going straight to the OAKS I decide to run a mile on the turf and set up for Qinglin and she really wasn't even ready for the mile turf race and she just doug inner self at the quarter pole kicked in and won impressively I probably is proud of her that day as any he's ever run and then we here and running the state going wrong here and she gets off bad which was okay with me because she kind of wants to sit behind but we ended up being rushed up and going wide and head for the lead around the turn and just wasn't her type of races way it's set up for about a half mile pole she kind of said the hell with it and flow just kind of wrapped up her so then we go to Churchill for that race and she she redeems yourself runs behind break even and we go to the ACORN and I don't know if it was the practice shipping or what it was she didn't seem to ship and didn't seem to bother me maybe she just didn't like Belmont he's tractor and I had no delusions about being one two I was hoping to be third and thought I would be third you know 'cause Gerona during the empress I didn't know if we could beat them if we ran our race so that she wound up like six in there and I was disappointed so I turned out for three weeks back ready for the Dogwood and then the right and run was our main goal and that it worked out well and you know she she's obviously so you know the the the seven eighths she's got the two good seconds and now this win so she really feels like that specialty hype and that's a nice commodity frankly I mean because that's a you know it's obviously the the fillion mayor sprint distance and Gosh I think they're gonNa wait a minute when what is that what is the next keeneland Philly Mayor Breeder's Cup sprint is next the year after next year so she'll be four year old and might be three-quarters then instead of seventy eight so I'm not sure what they'll do it Qinglin they do what they do they they used to be three quarters always been seven eight always been seven eighths to differentiate from the from the sprint and go never wanna see her again it can who who could who could Mr loathsome back motive courses run so maybe she will be back you know you bring up a great point you think about it neal between this philly and and Kaffee and Arana and break even and Dunbar road and and even like gelatin this this has been a good Rupa Sprint and phillies this year Oh yeah it's a very tough group I mean it's the toughest division there is as far as you know being in the a non graded stakes at Churchill. Yeah that's right well because they did some unusual they actually did some unusual Sir with her and you know look at it that black cat win you actually probably could could take some some paths less traveled yourself with her going going forward I should mention of course with Jessica Perfection Brett Jones a bread the philly out of a street cry bear street mate and they actually had two horses in it's Airdrie did and they were sitting in the box right next to me we're watching the race they they gotta be happy over there it's good majestic perfection and they were they were very happy I'm sure they would rather one with their own but they were very happy man break Israel and very polite thank congratulated me and same same generally pleased that at one listening that that's one thing everybody gene and we all root for the other one to do well for it there's no animosity between any of us we all want it's all about initial offenbach doing well hello everybody raves everybody as now that he's retired and is really you know he always was active but now it seems like yeah he's he really wants to enjoy himself and and you know be fully involved and he's been he's been busy at the sales accordingly yes we've been the last probably three years but quite a few.
