The BBC recently reported on an experiment in Japan to test memory in chimpanzees and humans. The chimps far outpaced the human subjects (university students) in speed and accuracy. I emailed the story to some colleagues, with a note clarifying why I think the assumption of “human specialness” is the root cause of our ecological crises. I said there is nothing “especially special” about human specialness. All species are special. — Christian de Quincey
How About a Sacred Fish with Legs? What if both science and religion are wrong about evolution? What if both are right? We’ve all seen them: bumper stickers and decals of a fish with legs symbolizing Darwin’s theory of evolution. And then, from religious creationists, the “counter-decals” of a fish-with-a-cross swallowing “Darwin’s” amphibious fish. The battle of the decals is just one way the debate between creationists and evolutionists overflows onto our streets. But there’s an alternative: a philosophy that shows why both religion and science have got it wrong—and right. To move beyond the sectarian clashes and wars in these troubled times—between fundamentalists in both religion and science—we need a wiser, more coherent, account of who we are and how we came to be. We need a revised and renewed vision of creation and evolution. We need a deeper and broader understanding of both religion and science.
