This marsupial is heavily convergent on wolf and obviously not remotely like a tiger apart from the stripes. A thylacine skull is a favourite trick Q for zoology exams. In my year they double-bluffed us with a real wolf skull. Nobody could mistake thylacine for tiger skull
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Thylacinus, the Tasmanian Wolf, was still alive? I’d give a lot to see one. html
My beloved mother died today, a month short of her 103rd birthday. As a young wartime bride she was brave and adventurous. Her epic journey up Africa, illegally accompanying my father, is recounted in passages from her diary, reproduced in An Appetite for Wonder. Rest in Peace.

Outgrowing God. US book tour. Thanks to my interlocutor, @JannaLevin, last night’s full house event in New York was one of the best I can remember, in spite of losing my http://voice.Today it’s Boston with the provocatively brilliant Max @Tegmark:

Elizabeth Loftus is a brave hero, fighting this Freud-inspired latter-day version of the Salem witch-hunts.
“Those [countries that] support delay will go to the bottom of the queue.” What queue? Oh poor countries, they must be quaking with fear. Please big bold Bojo have mercy “Over half of the public will agree with us.” Really? Then put it to a referendum

I’ll make my horse a consul. Great idea. All my ideas great. I’ve done before. I don’t got horse? No worry. I could buy every horse in the land. Consul not in constitution? I can change constitution. I’m president, with greatest majority ever. USA GREAT!

Abdus Salam was a hero of science. He should have been celebrated as Pakistan’s greatest son. Instead he was shamefully ill-used by that country’s ignorant religious leaders. This film is a movingly sensitive treatment of a wonderful world citizen

I support Peter Boghossian, James Lindsay and Helen Pluckrose. It should go without saying that I do not support the religious mission of organizers of the conference — about whom I knew nothing when I wrote my tweet.
I gave a detailed description, forlornly hoping someone would remember. Some answered sincerely & plausibly (eg Glittering Prizes – but alas, it isn’t that). Others waste time & space with puerile jokes. One even went out of his way to say “No idea.” So why tell us?
I will be discussing my new book OUTGROWING GOD at York Theatre Royal tomorrow 30th September. Get your ticket here:

Pretentious postmodern nonsense is a serious menace in universities & contemporary culture. Peter Boghossian, James Lindsay & Helen Pluckrose are heroes in the fight against it. Hear them at the London conference on “Speaking Truth to Social Justice”
