  1. Last I checked, it was sunny and you're with your kids. What business do you have writing to me now? And here's the last message you get. I'm deleting my account with this useless, worthless site full of pompous arrogant pseudointellectuals like yourself who want to belittle the opinions of others who come from a perspective of faith, who have genuine interest in helping others, all because you think you're "smarter than thou". Please, take a seat. Your knowledge came from your teachers who settled to get paid $15/hour to support their families if it means feeding minds like yo
  2. Nice acting you do. Here's some advice. The next time you want to belittle someone's genuine opinions when they sought to help OP who seemed to be having an existential crisis, do not come across as an arrogant, self righteous know it all. Don't "all the best" me with your fake self. Humble your arrogant ass self.
  3. Okay. So the rat running away from the cat proves free will. And the parasite inhibiting the rat from running away proves the parasite inhibits the rat's free will. And, even using your example... if a gun is pointed at someone, their will is manipulated by the gunman. They give up money, not wanting to--doing something against their will. In some cases, when given the chance, one would fight back. In BOTH cases, free will is exhibited--one, where it is imposed upon and limited, and the other in which it is acted upon. I quoted him--it's directly to him. Open for all, yes, but dire
  4. You pointing a gun at me to take my money is an example of you imposing your will and LIMITING MY FREE WILL by making me do something I would otherwise choose to not do (unless of course you were homeless or needed the money, then I would). A better example? Maybe. But it's not the only way of showing free will exists. Then again, this could be another scenario.
  5. A parasite making the rat do something that it would otherwise choose to not do, is an example of free will on the rat's part. It's that simple. @zapatos
  6. My message is for OP. Not you. Keep your attitude to a zero or don't bother messaging me with your disgusting self. You're superior to no one for you to go on typing on a keyboard like you have all the answers. I'm giving my input and perspective to OP. Allow me to do that without you coming at me like a disgusting, attitude filled narcissistic pretentious know it all. The fact that there is absence of free will, means there is free will to begin with. Try to use common sense and not a whole bunch of words you learned from your writing class that you want to throw at me, okay? Okay.
  7. I completely believe we have free will. I would give an example from the Holy Bible but refrained since I'm not sure if that's the kind of evidence you'd want to hear. Let me know if you do, and I'll give you my perspective on it. From a more scientific point of view, you'll find this interesting... Look up this disease called Toxoplasma gondii, research it a little. You'll find that it's a parasite wanting to live and reproduce in the intestines/stomach of cats but can only enter the cat through an intermediary host (like a bird or rat) as it needs an intermediary to morph into the
  8. @hypervalent_iodine I see. But my question is, why is matter considered particulate rather than elemental? And how does ratios of matter disprove elementalism, if matter is of that element? For example... CO is gas, a type of air. That (being gaseous) is its element (air). How does comparing the ratio of oxygen to carbon in first carbon monoxide and then carbon dioxide, and then making a ratio out of those two ratios, support the idea of the particulate nature of matter versus the elemental nature of it? What does that have to do with elementalism? Isn't matter both particulate and eleme
  9. @hypervalent_iodine I'm talking about Aristotle's elementalism.
  10. This is a topic that I've been thinking about, but before I ask my question, I just want to give some background info.: In 1804, John Dalton published his law of multiple proportions, which states: When two elements (call them A and B) form two different compounds the masses of element B that combine with 1 gram of element A can be expressed as a ratio of small whole numbers. So, carbon monoxide, CO, has a ratio of 1.33 when we divide the mass of Oxygen with 1 gram of Carbon (Carbon equalling 12.01 g or 12.01 amu in 1g of Carbon). And, carbon dioxide, CO2 has a ratio of 2.66 when we
  11. Thanks for your question. Just as this is your first gel electrophoresis of PCR, this is my first time reflecting on PCR in quite a few years, so don't take my word for it completely but I'm going based on memory here to try to help you/answer your question since I see no one else has yet. Hopefully someone else chimes in and corrects me where I'm wrong. 1.- The impression I'm getting from your professor, since she's asking you to do them separately, is that she wants you to retain how to make the mix and also she wants you to be careful/not wasteful of the products. It's a te
  12. How do you delete your account? I want mine permanently removed.

      I could not help but wonder the same. Perhaps she felt she needed to make a statement?

      No, she's got no issues here, as she said above. It's just a personal realisation.

  13. Chess. Lol. Wanted something short and sweet to login and play chess online with people. Yup.
  14. College is where you go for undergraduate studies in a certain concentration of a subject (examples of studies that you would major in, in a college are: anthropology, biology, chemistry, math, physics, english, linguistics...just google any college/university and search through “undergraduate programs”). Graduate programs are an even more specific course of studies that you undergo after completing a bachelors degree at a college/university. MCAT is an exam taken for medical schools. GRE is an exam taken for graduate schools. Are you looking to find a way into medical sch
