What is Grass Mud Horse?

Grass Mud Horse“草泥马” is a Internet meme created by angry netizen, furious at current boring state of censored China Internet. The censored is aim at pornography. However, because of the ‘very intelligent’ filter, every thing that got flesh also kena blocked.

Hence the meme, Grass Mud Horse is Chinese vulgar equivalent to *ahem*, asking how’s your mother. Pardon me.

Here is the news(Link). NYT News here(Link). For whatever is worth, I hope there isn’t such horse.

Evolution ‘accidently’ left God believing brain cell in us.

God Brain cell
Scientists from National Institutes of Health did a study to understand where in the brain religious beliefs seem to be modulated. Their findings, whether culturally adapted or just plain coincidence, there is a region in our brain that response to belief’s stimulant. Snip,

“ Statements based on God's involvement — such as "God protects one's life" or "Life has no higher purpose" — provoked activity in brain regions associated with understanding intent. Statements of God's emotions — such as "God is forgiving" or "the afterlife will be punishing" — stimulated regions responsible for classifying emotions and relating observed actions to oneself. Knowledge-based statements, such as "a source of creation exists" or "religions provide moral guidance," activated linguistic processing centers.”

Does this means, for maybe, a thousand generations, if every single person in the family denied the existence of God, that brain cell will disappear? Just like the Appendix? No wonder human is losing hair.
