If there is one thing that terrifies me as a blogger, its noticing site-hits from HuffPo.
It means one of two things–
1– They stole some of your content
2– One of their kook ‘writers’ linked to you, and a shitstorm of crazy is about to invade
Yeah… I noticed some hits from HuffPo yesterday…
I stopped everything I was doing to investigate, and it turns out things were a lot funnier than I was anticipating.
Some random weirdos wrote a post on meditation, and included this stupid bit:
Recent developments in the biological sciences indicate that environmental influences can alter a newly recognized layer of genomic control called the epigenome. And some epigenetic changes have even been shown to persist across generational boundaries. Until recently, this was thought to be impossible. Extrapolating this notion, we might speculate that the benefits resulting from meditative practices could conceivably be passed on to future generations.
Yeah, random weirdos. Meditating is liek TOTALLY ‘epigenetics‘, so it will liek TOTALLY ‘benefit’ future generations.
Turns out HuffPos ‘Around the Web’ widget linked to my post: ‘Epigenetics is not magic‘
