The idea that ‘ontology recapitulates phylogeny’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recapitulation_theory is just a fancy way to name a bad idea. Who says that only lay persons are guilty of non-critical thinking.
Love your show. It is always thought provoking.
…by the way…I have a pun for Derek: If one goes on an expedition in ‘Lybia’ (as Obama calls it) and has a member of the Berber Tribe to carry one’s luggage could one call them a ‘Berber-Sherpa’?
You know that joke is going to appear at a quartet performance someday…
Feel free to use and embelish at will…eg…if this group sang 4 part harmony would they then by ‘Barbershopper Berber-Sherpas?’…and if they were looking around for someone to cut their hair would they be barbershopping, Barbershopper, Berber-Sherpas?’…and if they decided to try out each other’s barbers would they be ‘barberswapping, barbershopping, Barbershopper Berber-Sherpas?…anyway, you can go as far with this as you like. I just thought of a few more after I posted yesterday.
Have you given a lot of thought to your title? I hope so because the title may sell you book and once it’s on the shelves, get people to buy you book. Here’s an interesting statistic for you. In 2008 approximately 300,000 books will be published. Once the book is on the self, a buyer will take approximately two seconds to decide to buy it! That’s why the title is so important.
