Unanswered previous questions

  1. What scientist would willingly be called impure? Where is the journal of impure science? 
  2. Should Jasper Johns' paintings be destroyed because he used acrylic, which is a type of plastic?
  3. Are you opposed to power, on the grounds that authority is impossible without it?
  4. The average mammal exists for a million years. So far we've managed 100,000 years, a mere tenth of the average. What is it exactly that you hope for? Another 900,000 years? Do you wish for a kinder, gentler period in human history? If so, how long would you expect it to last? Is there any precedent for it in human history? In non-human history?
  5. Many parasites are born, live their entire lives, and die of old age entirely enclosed in food (e.g. many of the bacteria in your body). Should we be jealous of this? Or should we feel lucky? 
  6. Why haven't you looked at the Hubble telescope images even though I sent you links to them twice? Are you prejudiced against them and if so why?
