Re:

Two of you here claim superior intelligence. I have a question for you about longevity. Longevity has two components – genetic and environmental. IamAnAlien said “I believe that human evolution is shifting towards a human of greater intelligence and longevity”. How do you know how much of the appar...

I had a lot of things typed up, but decided against it. There were also a lot of tangents. I will sum it all up into a sentence or two for each part. And do not take offense. Aging slowly - Can be good or bad, but there is no evidence to suggest it is good, or that you are aging slowly. It also has ...

Re:

So could you present or link to that hypothesis that virus could be the origin of life? I do not care about your education (or mine or that of your mentor in whatever university: we all can be wrong and mislead) but when you make extraordinary claims, i.e. that a parasite that cannot replicate with...

Re:

Virus are not thought to be the precursor of other life forms. They are parasite that require complex and developed host to reproduce. They must have evolved later. Bacteria do have mutations a lot. The DNA replication is not as accurate. They have horizontal genetic transfer (conjugation, transpos...

Well, given my brief suggestion, I had stated that a god could have potentially made millions of years happen in 6 days. To put it on a scale, I'd not consider it. I would say that god placed the processes and everything perfectly and let nature, which doesn't exist either, not even in science, work...

Re: Re:

As for creation, interestingly, the timeline of Genesis seems to match the evolution of our universe, even down to our planet, from the information we do have regarding both. As for the evolution of life, it also seems to match in the timeline of biopoesis to where we are now. It's actually quite i...

Viral-induced evolution

I am not going to provide any lengthy paragraph regarding the foundation of evolution, but propose a thought I just had. We're under the assumption that evolution occurred and progressed through common ancestral species. It has already been hypothesized that viruses may be the most prehistoric "...

Science supports or rejects, it doesn't not prove, but does the best it can. Some people try to say "Water boils at blah blah blah", and state it as fast . However, that is incorrect. Water boils at that temperature at a certain elevation, with certain applications present (environmental),...
