Not my field, but this seems to keep coming up.
Psychologists Shed Light On Origins Of Morality

Pogge:” This is the volume of a sphere with a 62 kilometer (about 39 miles) radius, which is considerably smaller than the 2,000 mile radius of the Earth.”
Wikipedia:” For Earth, the mean radius is 6,371.009 km(≈3,958.761 mi; ≈3,440.069 nmi).”
Wisp to Lester (on Pogge): Do you admit he was wrong about the basics?
Lester: No

That's interesting!

Moral synesthesia.

Hum... That reminds me of yet another faulty design we have...

Do you know why when we spin we feel nauseated?
It's because the semi circular tubes behind your ear (that provide the sense of equilibrium) and your eyes (those would be for sight) send contradictory messages to the brain.

What does that have to do with nausea?
Nothing, actually. Except that the region on the brain that analyzes equilibrium is next to that region that analyzes poison.

Edit: Hum... Now that i think about it... It does make sense (evolutionary and, alas, creationist). When we spin, or when we're traveling in a car (not in a straight line with invariable speed) our equilibrium and our eyes disagree. That being the case, one of them must be hallucinating (we don't drive cars, and don't usually need to spin in nature). So we kinda need to puke.

So i take that back, but leave it written out of honesty.

BUT God could have prevented this, if He wanted. I mean, He thought beforehand that bacteria could eat nylon.

Scientists assert (by Lester):

Ha Ha. (...) I've told you people endlessly about my evidence but you don't want to show me yours - you just assert.

Would we see a mammal by the water's edge "suddenly" start breathing underwater(w/camera effect of course)?

Yes, an interesting article.

That reminds me of the actions some baby animals take to avoid being eaten by an adult.  Baby Komodo dragons, for instance, will roll in feces to avoid being eaten by a male adult Komodo dragon.  I wonder if the male adult wrinkles up his nose in disgust?

You see, the emotion of disgust really is primative.  It goes back a long way, and it play a role in morality in Komodo dragons!  :0)
