Ecology/Environment

Would it be possible to have a forum dedicated to ecology and the environment?
It's possible to bring up ecological topics in the various forums, but it's such an interdisciplinary field that it would do well in it's own forum.

If you're going to cite "bad science" dont' link to propaganda please. Here's your link m After looking through the study, even though I'm not a geologist, I could see that Austin may have made several methodological errors in his sampling methods, primarily regarding identifying xenolyths...

If conditions were just right to form the initial self replicating ribozyme-ish molecules and their accomanying lipid vessicles, I think that the possibility of simultaneous formation of many of these proto-cells is more probable than the formation of only one and that one surviving long enough to p...

You expect me to tell you by what limits God is bound, and how he actually created life If you could do that then yes, Creationism could be considered more scientific. (note I didn't say ID, as ID has more connotations than just a God/Creator). If you think about it, the myths and stories of the Bi...

Now Now kids lets play nice. Springer is at least appealing to logic somewhat in his arguments. I'd like to discuss further the differences in logic between ID/creationism and science/evolution. It is sad but true that some evolutionists get caught up in the ideas and principles of the theory that t...

An ancient grave in what is now Israel contained the body of a child holding a small dog/puppy. The grave was dated to be 12,000 yrs old. I tried looking up some primary literature but I can't access it from off-campus. when I can get back on a computer at school I'll try to post some references. Dave

Now I'm no biochemist but here's my unerstanding of the issue. It might not have been RNA (or more specifically ribozyme) as we recognize it today, but something very similar. The important thing about RNA is that it's chemical properties allow it to self-replicate. Modern cellular replication requi...

Evolution, as it is argued, cannot be proven wrong. It is non-falsifiable and therefore should be disregarded as science, according to the evolutionists' own criteria. Now I get turned around sometimes when addressing logic, but I think that the above is a false statement. The Scientific Method is ...

I'm currently conducting an independent study on Evolution. Anyhow, I had a couple of comments to add to the current discu...
