who cares bout him lookin like daredevil....this guy has not only talent...but even though this sounds bad....him being able to do this makes u wonder how we are connected with everything else on earth....bats and dolphins can do what he does..what does that say bout evolution?


haha, i personally say we'rd connected with everything else on earth by having the same creator, but i'm totally not here to debate evolution/christianity.

us and dolphins being able to do echolocation doesn't favor evolution or creationism.. You could think, as perhaps you do, that since we share common characteristics, humans could've evolved from dolphins and kept the abilities to do echolocation. You can also think that since we share common characteristics, it shows common authorship by a creator. Kinda like looking at different Frank Lloyd Wright buildings... They share characteristics that you see and say, that's Frank Lloyd Wright. (I'm an architect.. sry =p)

Fifth grade kid hit him.  Fifth grade kids are probably not as nice and sensitive as they should be.

I saw a show about this a while back - not this kid specifically - but a blind man who used a little handheld clicker and used the echolocation to find his way from a park back to a coffee shop in a town he'd never been too before.
He then proceeded to teach a blind teenage girl how to do it.  After only about 3 hours of practice, she was riding her bike down the sidewalk, even avoiding people walking.  Amazing.

Embrace the impossible.
