Just rewatched Jurassic Park and it hits totally different from a critical rationalist perspective. The whole movie is based on the “humans aren’t smarter than evolution/nature” idea…but then the “good” humans defeat the nature?

@chrishoweareyou Weird dude. Was it like a “oh this is on (insert platform), haven’t seen that for a minute, let’s watch it,” thing or like an actively seeking out thing. Ours was the former, but weird coincidence either way.
Interestingly enough, the NYTimes TOR site (onion address as they’re called for the uninitiated), has no paywall. (Have to use a TOR browser to open this link, and it is super slow)
