About

Welcome aboard! We present this blog with the intention to serve as a journal about the life on our planet. While we are not (yet) experts in the field, our enthusiasm and interest on the different lifeforms around this world came to provide texts and comments on new and relictic subjects.

This blog came from the idea of entering the blogroll of science writting and reviving our past sites in the subject, all in Portuguese language: BioData by Rafael and Biolista by Piter. The blog will serve as a sibling to our other existing journals: Poisor Tristesi and Natureza Terráquea, as well for discussing the representation of both extinct and extant life in art.

We became friends in 2004 and the idea of making up a blog began to grow in early 2011.

    In your quote “…since Linnaeus was a Christian and believed that all life forms were created separately by God himself just as they are today, but was created to make the study of living beings easier..” what did you mean by “just as they are today” I’m over people mixing christianity and science, and just want to be sure this wasn’t a quote allowing christianity even a blip of justification here, but instead maybe acknowledging that christianity still feels the same way even with our technological advances and biological classification breakthroughs. Thanks:)

      Hi.
      By “just as they are today” I meant that Linneaus believed that they, the organisms, were created as they, the organisms, are today, i.e., Linnaeus was a Christian and thought life was unchangeable.
      Of course I’m not allowing any christian thinking. As you can see in our section “the authors”, I’m an atheist. =)
      I hope I made it clear. And thanks for the comment.
      Regards,
      Keo
