Beware of aquatic apes

Greetings.

Jewish date:  3 Tammuz 5769.

Today’s holiday:  Thursday of the Twelfth Week of Ordinary Time.

Today’s quasi-holiday:  Log Cabin Day.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:  “It's about the women”:  This is an interesting perspective on our moral behavior.  Correctly noted is that the United States did not bother to do anything about the Taliban until 2001-09-11, despite their treating women in a way considered shocking in much of the rest of the planet.  How women are being treated in Iran is simply being ignored in the news as unworthy of attention.  People by now expect it to happen, and politicians are unlikely to do anything about matters people do not complain about.  It should be noted that a lot of antidemocratic, anti-non-Muslim, and other behavior in the Muslim world which  elsewhere would likely be considered immoral also gets a pass.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is the aquatic ape hypothesis.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
