* Evolution doesn't work according to plans or logic, it is possible that humanity may have devolved, predicting the future is notoriously difficult.
** The fact that you would even use a word like "devolved" shows you have no understanding of evolution whatsoever.

*** Now that [[Film/PacificRim Pacific Rim]] has come out the club idea doesn't sound too rediculous...

* When they take a class out to pick up the meteorite, why don't they actually get the meteorite?

\n** Plus one assumes that he figured he would have to make some sort of solution out of it anyway, as the other option would be to make a large club out of the stuff and start clonking the monsters on the head.

* Although it's hardly the most obvious example of [[DidNotDoTheResearch bad science]] in the movie, one point sticks out in my mind. Toward the end, Ira and his "team" realize that selenium might be an effective weapon against the creatures, at which point Ira starts talking about how many gallons they'll need to defeat them. The problem? Selenium is a solid at room temperature, and he hadn't been made aware that [[spoiler: selenium is the active ingredient in Head & Shoulders shampoo]] at that point. Shouldn't a scientist of his caliber know better?

\n** Gallons are just as valid a measure of volume as anything (I've heard people talk about gallons of gasses, for instance), and easier/faster to say than cubic feet/meters, etc. Plus, people have a better idea of what a gallon is than other measures of volume.

* Huh? Did we watch the same movie? The plot discussion above doesn't relate at all to the movie called ''Film/{{Evolution}}'' I saw, and that is described on the main entry.
** He seems to be talking about Evolution in general...or something? Maybe how in a lot of post-apocalyptic settings humans have regressed? I really don't know what he's on about.
*** It's a Stephen Baxter book. Also, Baxter says somewhere along the course of the book that the ape-like posthumans evolved from feral children, so they wouldn't have a heck of a lot of social knowledge anyways. After that, it was just a gradual slide downwards again. Besides, it's not always energy-efficient to have a big brain.
*** Which still doesn't have anything to do with the movie this JBM is linked to.
* Possibly this page needs two sections. I got to it from literature. In response to the IJBM, evolution doesn't work according to plans or logic, it is possible that humanity may have devolved, predicting the future is notoriously difficult.
