Philosophy Wire: Fighting, hands, evolution, prejudice...

_64866270_155701660Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-12-20]: US researchers say that fighting may have contributed to the evolution of the human hand into a strong, buttressed structure when made into a fist. [source: BBC News] The key word here is... "may". I have siad it again and I will repeat myself once more: Scientists and science-proponents too easily accept such words when they spek, but they easily critisize theists or religious people for using the same word. From them, they demand precision and accuracy in their saying… For many people the human hand may have evolved in the way it did without knowing details about how or why it did so, but the Universe cannot have a First cause… because!
