In my opinion, our current time is just as badly opinionated as Darwin's day. But that's just my own badly opinionated opinion. 8)

I work outside on a construction sight, so everyday I am in a position to know what the weather's like. Every day I realize it's hot. I can remember, ten or fifteen years ago, it was cold in January, but not anymore. And people try to claim that global warming doesn't exist! :shock:

I shouldn't have waited so long to check back on this, since now I have some catching up to do. Oh well, here goes . . . Springer wrote: "I agree with you. I don't deny that God couldn't have used evolution in the creative process. I would come to that conclusion if there was evidence of it, wh...

Wow, I wasn't aware of that. That's amazing, especially since poodles don't seem to have that much in common with wolves. I can see the resemblance with work breeds, though, especially huskies. It seems as though my first hypothesis was correct, with the exception that a speciation event never occur...

Pet Wolf?

If I remember correctly, the domestic dog ( Canis familiaris ) is believed to be descended from the grey wolf ( Canis lupus ). If this is true, exactly when did the two become separate species? I've never heard of domestication/selective breeding producing a new species, but is this such an example?...

Not what you would call magic. I personally consider Wiccan magic to be more or less the same thing as Christian sacraments. In both, the supernatural/divine is called upon to do something for humans that we lowly mortals would be unable to do ourselves. For example, if we're ill, you might do a hea...

I think I understood it; the best way to improve yourself is to constantly challenge yourself, right? That's a pretty cool philosophy. I find life gets boring without any challenges. Just don't take it to the extreme, like jumping off a twenty-story building to challenge yourself to fly . . . I used...
