As I’ve learned when being called a friend of Putin (believe it or not, I’ve never met the man,” an Islamophobic Assad supporter (I was under the impression Bashar al Assad’s religion is Islam,) or a young earth creationist, for commenting that many scientists seem to labour under the misapprehension that evolution is a mechanistic process and therefore predictable — my point was that we might interbreed with our computers and evolve into a race of humandroids but it is more likely we will trash our civilisation and devolve back to knuckle draggers. I can’t really see how anyone who knows anything about creationism could think a creationist might write anything like that but hey, this is the internet.

It’s futile to look for sense in most of the comments left on our posts. Even most of the ones that open with a coherent, grammatical sentence, usually fall apart if they stretch beyond fifty words. But a glance down the thread is always worthwhile, there are some gems to be found.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
