Just a short note on a basic principle. I have heard it said that life is actually an inevitable consequence of the universe. I can think of one reason why and thought I would share.

It reminded me why I get a little frustrated with current nutritional and health advice and why I think the public gets so confused and follows so many fashions. In my view it’s because so much of …

Colin Chambersbiology, genetics, science, truth Leave a Comment

I’ve always had an issue with the concept of using identical twins separated at birth as evidence to support any idea that genes determine our personalities. I couldn’t lay my finger on it exactly but just because a bunch of people with identical, or very similar genes seem to end up being similar in some ways. It’s assumed that must …
