Re:

since you deleted the reaction, I guess I can delete whole post, so that you are not embarrassed, right? No need to delete. I misread. I asked what you were talking about. I immediately deleted that. So what ? I made a mistake. No need to delete, Jack. You can now claim that you caught me making a ...

Re: THE DARWINIST "ATHEISTS" TECHNIQUES OF CLAMOR AND DEMAGOGUER

Unfortunately we have at least one moderator on this forum who behaves like a spoiled adolescent and, as so often happens when such a one is given some power, they invariably misuse it to cut down debate in order to prevent further embarrassment. I asked you at least tree times to respond. You didn...

Re: Re:

evolution states that these two different genes occur as a result of mutations, which is the engine of evolution. My protest is: How do you know that this is a mutation? First, some basic genetics. As a geneticist, I like to make the distinction between "mutation" and "polymorphism&q...

Re: THE DARWINIST "ATHEISTS" TECHNIQUES OF CLAMOR AND DEMAGOGUER

I think it's regrettable that some of the mods seem to be engaged in attempts to alienate, antagonize, and prod members who they disagree with, into more radical forms of disagreement, seemingly in order to arrive at distinct actionable conflicts. One does not even identify himself as moderator or s...

Re: Evolution of the nervous system

Duh.


And what's that got to do with the price of tea in china ?

Not only had it already been mentioned that there are many examples more, but they are not errors at all.

Re:

you started with the video and saying, that the food is sweet because we like it Not quite true. I showed the video and said that Dan offered a reasonable answer for "why", and then someone asked for my short report on what Dan was saying. Then you claimed it was rubbish and that you were...

What do you mean "doesn't contribute" ?

Re:

Crucible, you are spouting inanity when you say that It's fallacious reasoning to insist that if a single species can be found with less than optimal arrangements, that it means "no design" or "poor design". because when it comes to the recurrent laryngeal, all vertebrates have ...

Re: Why are flowers "beautiful"?

It is not a matter whether flowers are beautiful or not but why we think they are. I'd agree; they are beautiful TO US. They have no intrinsic beauty, it's all about us thinking they are beautiful - so why is that ? It is why our taste for flowers is the same as whatthe flowers evolved for bees to ...

Re: Re:

I see, so it is that the food is sweet or salty, whatever, because we like it, but yet we are able to perceive level of sugar or salt in the food? Isn't that contradictory? So, the more we like it, the more sweet it is? seriously, I don't know what else to write. I'm leaving. Congratulation, anothe...

If what I wrote is self-contradictory, please show how so, rather than switching the subject again without even acknowledging that your query was responded to.

Re: acid rain and carbon cycle?

Remember the acids other than Carbonic ( e.g. Sulphuric ) that can make rain acid. Action is different.
When they talk about acid rain, then, especially historically, it's good to remember that they might not have been talking only about carbonic.
