Re: The Colin Leslie Dean species paradox

gamila did you even read what I wrote? I honestly spent a lot of time writing it, and I'm offended that you so flippantly dismissed it without apparently giving it any thought. Furthermore, you went ahead and spammed another huge quote. If you want any credibility (which you have pretty much none at...

Re: The Colin Leslie Dean species paradox

you are left with a dillema 1)in order to resolve the dean paradox the dean paradox makes you abandon the word species in which case your biology is destroyed or 2)you used the word bird signifying it is different from its parent organism your so called science uses the word species as such you hav...

Sounds like a cool job. Sucks it doesn't pay, but it really does sound like you'll have some great networking opportunities and get your foot in lots of doors. Good luck!

It tells us WHO we are Completely untrue. It does tell us what we probably are - but it can never address the question of who or why we are. Anyone attempting to draw conclusions along those lines, using evolution as proof, is a fool. Clearly, to you, if evolution is true it must replace God - and ...

What I am trying to say is that species are irrelevant to evolution, organisms flow seamlessly into each other. True. "Colin" is hung up on the concept of species - he's being overly semantic. Species is just a classification which some organisms fit neatly into, while others do not. To s...

Do you see there being a need for minors participating in clinical trials? I know at least one person that had cancer when she was young - and I'm pretty sure she's just glad she's alive. If we saw a rash of overdosage or unnaceptable levels of side-effects then I'd say a red flag needs to be raised...

Re: Diversifying selection

Sorry, I'm just going to leave it at the original topic. There are other threads to discuss what you want to discuss. As far as I know "diversifying" "disruptive" and "divergent" mean pretty much the same thing when it comes to selection. However, I don't like the use o...

Certain medications such as innoculations are vital to have administered during youth. If such a medication is being tested, I see no other way to perform a clinical trial than on children... It would be good to have not only the parents consent, but the child's as well. I haven't heard of any child...

My advice would be to research Mendel's experiments on peas. He looked at many traits such as floristic characteristics, seed pods, etc. Reproducing his experiments in one form or another would probably be very useful as an object lesson.

I don't even know what they mean by tide conditions... Does that mean low/high? or does it have something to do with red-tides? If it means av-low/av-high then maybe - because this could restrict or expand the intertidal zone. seasonal climate change (as opposed to global climate change) will have n...
