Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

  • Rat Rescue

    Will rats help each other in much the same way that human beings do?
    Yes (at least given the limits of these experiments).
    Rats help another rat in response to distress. They do not help a trapped rat if it is not distressed. They help rats from familiar strains.

      No. But they do snitch on them to the police.

                  "When the Western world accepted Christianity, Caesar conquered; and the received text of Western theology was edited by his lawyers…. The brief Galilean vision of humility flickered throughout the ages, uncertainly…. But the deeper idolatry, of the fashioning of God in the image of the Egyptian, Persian, and Roman imperial rulers, was retained. The Church gave unto God the attributes which belonged exclusively to Caesar."

                  — Alfred North Whitehead

                      Rats are smart. We should eat their brains to get smarter. (This is, after all an ff thread.)

                        My first pair of rats were brothers, and like brothers do, they fought and wrestled a lot. But they also snuggled up together to sleep.
