The business end of that massive zoom lens. This is what an F2.8 hole looks like on a telephoto lens :)

The elephant inks arrives for my #EpsonXP750. It seems you can’t get these in shops anymore, at least I haven’t seen them in shops that normally stock printer inks and such. Are #Epson cutting production of this particular ink line? 
On a related tangent, look at the tusks on that elephant! Impressive :)

I think, to an extent, that they may be correct in the way see it; that it’s either/or.  To accept evolution is to throw away the opening words of the Bible and dismiss them as blatantly false.  If you do that; if you throw away the entirety of Genesis Chapter One, then most of the entire rest of the book loses its footing.  The ark story becomes even less likely (if that’s possible).  God lies in book of Job.  The reasons for Jesus’s sacrifice become moot.  If the first words are inaccurate then what else is inaccurate?  To accept evolution one must also accept that the Bible is not a perfect source of information and that a large portion of what they’ve believed since childhood is fundamentally wrong.  Either the Bible is reliable as a perfect work of God, or it is an imperfect human construct and you can never know what to believe in it.
I think I understand why creationists are as blind as they are.  And while I can still feel some sympathy for them, there is no way in hell I can ever condone their nonsensical beliefs and their desire to spread them.
