    Venus-flytrap

    Also, just as a sidenote: Though I'm not Christian, I wager most people who've contributed to this thread are. Since I've talked about how a lot of Christians combine evolutionary theory and their religion, this FAQ is quite good about the issue: Combining Christianity & Evolution Kudos, Jake

    Venus-flytrap

    Just a few thoughts... Wes, I'm not understanding what you mean... I personally am certainly not saying that biblical creation is a metaphor for evolution. I'm saying that *some* people do, and they feel just find blending the two together. Also, I agree with Tamlin--kudos to everyone for...

    Venus-flytrap

    Wes-- A lot of liberal Christians believe that God guides evolution or that the "week" of creation is a metaphor for billions of years of evolution. I didn't just "make this up," I cite it from *years* of conversation with Christians. If you think that a god created everything, that's fine. But...

    Venus-flytrap

    I haven't read all of this thread, but I hope I can contribute something of value here--I've stuided the history of evolution and philosophy of religion at the university level. Instead of responding to arguments here, I think it is important to clarity a few concepts. First, I do not believe...

    Bart simpson, aka wacky traps

    Well... just my $0.02: First of all, not having nervous systems, venus flytraps don't feel any sort of pain or inferiority complex just because they have wacky traps. They don't feel or care about anything at all. And furthermore, many biologists would argue that many, many animals do not...

    Dingley's giant

    Hey Everyone, Unfortunately, I don't have a digital camera/scanner, but I've been growing this clone for around a year now, and I'm very impressed. The pictures of this plant online don't really do it justice, and the name is a bit misleading. The plant is young, so I can't speak about trap...

    Which vfts do you grow?

    Tamlin and Vertigo, Thank you! I tried to vent a similar frustration about VFT cultivars a while ago. I think that sometimes forms get introduced into cultivation as a publicity stunt. I mean, let's all be realistic here--"Clayton's Volcanic Red" sounds pretty cool, but I'm unclear on how...

    On cultivars...

    Thanks for the constructive comments guys. I realize now that I was a bit too quick to make some of the statements in the original post, but I'm glad people are taking interest regardless. Apologies if I misconstrued any of the "Fang" thread. I am glad, however, that other people agree that...

    On cultivars...

    I just finished reading the "Fang" thread in the VFT section here, and I wanted to give my opinion, for what it's worth. I think it warrants a new topic. First, I'm sure everyone has come across some obviously wacky, useless cultivars. Names like "creeping death," for example, refer to some...
