  1. Not to break up the discussion, but why hasn't this thread been moved yet?
  2. good. Have fun. Although why this class isn't called simply "biology" is beyond me. (perhaps a question for your prof?) Darwin? I hope you haven't fallen into that trap. But you might be thinking of Fransisco Redi and his experiments with maggots.
  3. This has been asked before. Sociology is a social science, and I think it is a much better idea to ask for a whole social sciences subforum, as it won't really fall under any existing ones.
  4. I think your friend was just trying to be an asshole, and thought he was cool because he found a way to justify it.
  5. The overweight, mid 30's dumb stoner role was good for a chuckle the first time around, yes.

    I remember saying it, but not really caring. Its one of those things that are said so much, they start to lose meaning. It only started to piss me off when I though back to my public school days. I believe its ok for people to swear allegiance to their country, but not to a particular religion's god when living in such a pluralistic society. Its hypocritical.
  7. OKay, I looked at this thread like you asked, Sum, and I refuse to take part. Eugenics discussions never lead anywhere, and will probablt earn you a ban.
  8. Good. I didn't mean to sound harsh before. Only one way to learn.....
  9. I agree with yourdad. I have to say I was disappointed when it was over. I want those 2 hours back.
  10. Do a punnett square to figure it out. You won't learn your Mendelian genetics if you have us do it for you.

    Good. *Gloats* take that, syntax!!
  12. clue me in...whats "folding"? You mean like origami? The links either don't work or lead me to this very thread. Is it some physics thing?
  13. IDk, but I do know that his 15 minutes of being considered "funny" are long since up.
  14. One last comment, then I am really done with this Your foresight is amazing, zyncod. I would advise everyone to follow Peon, me and Lucid. This thread is going nowhere fast, and my advice would be that we all should apply our valuable insights elsewhere, where it could potentially construct a valuable discussion. I see good posts all around, posts that are mostly ignored by this shinbits fellow. What a shame.
  15. What an asshole. Sorry I don't have more to offer, but I had to say this.
  16. I don't know if you are familar with the legendary creationist "WILLOWTREE", but I almost like him better than this guy. At least he responded to everyone's posts, and didn't make you feel like you wasting your time with him. *Follows Peon de*
  17. So every time a new and interesting fossil is discovered, it is reported in numerous magazines, newspapers and websites because people find it "boring", huh? (off topic, I know, but this statement irked me.) We have far more evidence than that. Its foolish to think that the evolutionary biology and paleontology communites would put all their eggs in one basket like this. Archaeopteryx, however, is strong evidence supporting that birds are a side branch (or even a part of) the coelurasaurian theropod group. And this is illogical, how? Please enlighten me. How is this bad science? Well duh.
  18. This link happens to work for me; although I almost wish it didn't. I can see we will never convince you of Archaeopteryx's authenticity' date=' as you are quite the waffler (and an untalented one at that). Then address the "transitionals" I provided in the links I posted earlier, or did you not read them as I suspected? No it doesn't. I dare you to present one logically-sound argument that ID is supported by science. Please. Humor me. True, although that is by no means proof-positive it was created somehow. If you believe that, fine. But thats the realm of metaphysics, not science. No one said chance is the only way things can happen. Certain laws govern the universe and nature, and again, if you believe this is the handiwork of a divine presence, fine. But that cannot and will not be an empirically-based assumption. If this was the philosoophy and religion forum, sure.
  19. That has to be one of the coolest experiements ever. Got any links or sources where I can read more about it?
  20. I knew what you meant too, don't sweat it. Everyone makes mistakes.
  21. Exactly. He seems like he gives the Right ammunition for saying "see, if you are not one of us, then you are like this bozo!" Although I am pretty far Left, I resent the opportunism coming from both sides, but mainly the far Left with the Katrina issue. Natural disasters are bad no matter who is president.
  22. To come back to this again, Archaeopteryx mis not a hoax. I have seen one of the actual fossils, and I believe it wouldn't take you very long to take a taxi to the Museum of Natural History to see it either. You might or might not be thinking of "Archaeoraptor" which is a bonafied hoax. It was published in National Geographic (I have the issue) as genuine, although it was soon after discovered to be a clever composite hoax perpetrated by a Chinese farmer to make a quick buck. Just thought I'd beat you to mentioning it since you love to throw out names of known hoaxes thinking you are on to us or something. here's an article on it: http://skepdic.com/archaeoraptor.html
  23. Anyhow, lets settle this "where are the transitionals?" garbage once and for all: whale evolution: http://www.talkorigins.org/features/whales/ equine evolution: (with pictures!) http://chem.tufts.edu/science/evolution/HorseEvolution.htm Hominid Evolution: http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/homs/species.html (notice piltdown and nebraska man aren't mentioned. You are not onto us when you continually mention them, no one has considered them evidence for a while.) Talk.Origins Transitional Fossil FAQ: http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/CC/CC200.html Info on the Piltdown Hoax: http://skepdic.com/piltdown.html Info on "Nebraska Man": http://wiki.cotch.net/index.php/Nebraska_man_was_a_hoax Shinbits: I strongly suggest that you click on these links and actually read and try to understand them before posting again. I hope this clears everything up for you. edit: if any of these links don't work, tell me. I don't know how to "fix links" but I could post different ones.
