Newer variant of COVID-19-causing virus dominates global infections: Virus with D614G change in Spike out-competes original strain, but may not make patients sicker

New research shows that a specific change in the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus virus genome, previously associated with increased viral transmission and the spread of COVID-19, is more infectious in cell culture.

As Covid-19 Crisis Continues, UNEP and Global Partners Release 10-Point Plan to Prevent the Next Pandemic 

“The science is clear that if we keep exploiting wildlife and destroying our ecosystems, then we can expect to see a steady stream of these diseases jumping from animals to humans in the years ahead.”

Husky Ancestors Started Hauling Sleds for Humans Nearly 10,000 Years Ago 

Modern sled dogs from across the Arctic can trace their ancestry back to Siberia, according to a new genetic study that dovetails with archaeological evidence. Today’s familiar breeds such as huskies and malamutes are descended from a lineage that was well-established in Siberia 9,500 years ago and has been critical to human survival in the Arctic ever since.

This Scientist Says He’s Built a Jet Engine That Turns Electricity Directly Into Thrust

Needless to say, these are grandiose claims. A thruster that doesn’t require tanks of fuel sounds suspiciously like science fiction — like the jets on Iron Man’s suit in the Marvel movies, for instance, or the thrusters that allow Doc Brown’s DeLorean to fly in “Back to the Future.”But in Tang’s telling, his invention — let’s just call it a Tang Jet, which he worked on with Wuhan University collaborators Dan Ye and Jun Li — could have civilization-shifting potential here in the non-fictional world.“Essentially, the goal of this technology is to try and use electricity and air to replace gasoline,” he said. “Global warming is a major threat to human civilization. Fossil fuel-free technology using microwave air plasma could be a solution.”

Design in world history, no comment from ID-ists we can be sure…//Decoding World History (ver 4) 

The design in world history demands a non-theistic approach and is directly falfsifying of the Old Testament mythology.
It is even time for secular humanists to consider design arguments so that science can figure out its scientific basis.

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Decoding+World+History_DCDXver_4.pdfOur book ‘Decoding World History’, which will in a different version be an introduction to a very abbreviated edition of World History and the Eonic Effect is approaching a steady draft and can be read on its own terms.Everyone should be aware of this strange dynamic in world history. And it shows us the context of ‘evolution’ in the case of human history. It may also indicate the nature of evolution as such: evolution occurs in long sequences of transitions that operate over a region and induce species change via a form factor that tests its productions against the environment. No more silly thinking about natural selection.

 ID group censorship and hypocrisy on biblical design illusions…

Although the ID critics of Darwinism have usefully exposed the fallacies of Darwinism, the whole issue of ID is a grey zone of confusion. The pretense that Dembski has made a definable science of I…
