Q: Why do you remember things?

News to Know Quick Look

Sizeable Sturgeons Set Evolutionary Speed Records? Are sturgeons living fossils or evolutionary fast-trackers? A new study proposes that these fish are evidence of rapid, observable evolution.

But only humans, created in God's image, are capable of communicating unique and creative abstract thoughts with language.

But this study is really a marvelous example of comparative anatomy, showing variation within a species. This prompts the question "what was it?" not "what was it becoming?"
