gasses

it baffles me that anyone would think global warming is a conspiracy when we’ve known the physics of heat trapping gasses since the 19th century. now if you could prove that putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere doesn’t increase temperatures, you’d be proving pretty much everything we know about physics and thermodynamics wrong. now that would be a conspiracy.  

Hey guys

No it’s not funny when fingerprints or smudges get on our lenses so fuck off with those grubby little fingers.

After the first week it’s not funny when they fog up every time we enter a room.

It’s not funny when the rain gets all over them and no they don’t protect us from the rain at all.

No we don’t want to let you try on our glasses and will you please give them back immediately rather than wearing them for the next ten minutes so we have to sit in the fuzz.

Also, yes most of us can see how many fingers you are holding up. It doesn’t get to a point and then there is just darkness. 

Sea turtles ultimately grow from the size of a dinner plate to that of a dinner table. In the case of the leatherback sea turtle, this can take up to a decade. Happy World Turtle Day!

One of the oldest copies of a fragment of the Qur’an has been found by the University of Birmingham!

Radiocarbon dating has shown with a 95% of this being from the period 568-610 AD. Western scholars had always suggested that the Qur’an must have evolved and changed throughout history like the Bible and the Torah but this is a significant discovery as it supports the traditional view that the Qur’an is unchanged from the original. Upon inspection, it’s been found that the text has little/no alteration to the modern Qur’an. Subhanallah!

The person who actually wrote it could well have known the Prophet Muhammad… he would maybe have heard him preach.” - Prof. David Thomas, University of Birmingham

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ

Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. 

Surat Al-Ĥijr [15:9]
