Hmm here a little something to think about for those who believe in the theory of Evolution.


The Definition:
Biological evolution, simply put, is descent with modification. This definition encompasses small-scale evolution (changes in gene frequency in a population from one generation to the next) and large-scale evolution (the descent of different species from a common ancestor over many generations).

The process by which one species evolves into another involves random heritable genetic mutations (changes), some of which are more likely to spread and persist in a gene pool than others. Mutations that result in a survival advantage for organisms that possess them, are more likely to spread and persist than mutations that do not result in a survival advantage and/or that result in a survival disadvantage.

In short the entire species gene pool is moving toward a more stable mutation to better adapt to the surroundings.

2nd Law of Thermodynamics or Law of Increasing Entropy

The Definition:
While quantity remains the same (First Law), the quality of matter/energy deteriorates gradually over time.
Entropy is a gauge of randomness or chaos within a closed system. As usable energy is irretrievably lost, disorganization, randomness and chaos increase.

So doesnt this bring about a contradiction? If every system moves toward a state of greater chaos and does the genetic system move towards a more stable state?

Yamaha R1 injured in motorbike mishap

This is the news article, in its original form. The edited version which appeared in the Times of India today morning had a lot of useless information about an unshaven twit called John. So here is the unedited, unabridged version of the incident...the way it should have been reported

Mumbai:A Black '05 Yamaha R1 rammed into a bicycle at 11:15pm on Saturday on 16th Road at Khar.The bike, which is barely a year old, was returning from a fashion show, cruising on the sea-facing Carter Road, which stretches from Bandra to Khar, but probably failed to slow down after crossing the open stretch. According to sources the bike was on the way to Bipasha Basu's house.

According to the mechanics attending to the 1000cc Yam, the bike is "badly damaged and will be under observation for at least 24 to 48 hours"

"The bike has suffered massive injuries to the right faring but the chassis hasnt been damaged. The front fork was severely bent and took four hours to be straightened."

The bike rider has been booked for negligent driving and causing injury to man and vehicle.The rider, according to eye witnesses, was most probably drunk and could not maintain control of the bike.He slammed the brakes and skid for a few metres before colliding with the cyclist and kissing the road.

"The R1 is fine and there is nothing to worry about," said Bipasha Basu who visited the bike at the garage.The Yam, which had been on the road day and night for a fortnight under heavy traffic conditions, will have to take a break and recover from this horrific incident.

John Abraham was riding the bike.

What a Loser!!!

Just read in the Pune Times today that a 15 year old got duped in the most obvious way possible.

This dude is on his way home when a total stranger walks up to him and asks him how hes been faring in school. Forget about not talking to strangers, this kid spills the beans on how hes been an underachiever at school.

The stranger tells him that this is because his mother's jewellery is bewitched(!) and only he can exorcise the demon lest it cause him to fail. He even mentions that this demon can kill his parents at any time!!

Wow! Not only is this stranger creative but he seems to have a way with those who have a malleable mind. Right enough the dude brings the stranger all his mom's trinkets and the rest, as they say, is history!

And here I was beginning to think that our future generations were going to be smarter than us. This kinda stupidity is certainly not expected from a 15yr old.

I do hope that the dude parents dont punish him coz the embarassment he gonna face in public is punishment enough!
