  1. god i still haven't finished that book, what i've read was interesting. someone told me it was outdated. This is pertaining to a subject which Martin started. beyond the afformented (mentioned?) fragmented thoughts, here is my issue : if the universes evolved it wouldn't really be natural selection would it? whethere a universe were reproductive or not would be irrelelavant to its 'survival', there would be not competition and what else that contitute selection from among others. I suppose inevitably reproductively successful universe would arise, but they really would be no more succesful than their 'primitive ancestors'. I see no reason why any of the universes would get selected in any way. Therefore it really is just sheer luck that we live in the universe we do. What difference is it than random specification of numbers? Then again, as i said i haven't finished the book yet.
  2. this song makes me feel like i'm on cocaine
  3. God martin, way to take the elegance out of anatomy in your first post, but thanks for the info and the compliment. Thanks ye all others too. and JP i wusn trying to be sexist, its just i dont have any particular attractions to masculine features so i wouldn't know which ones to ponder upon. Also the mammaries obviously came first, i dont know what the crap you're trying to say . . . .
  4. In a Devils Chaplain (a collection of Dawkins essays, but i dont recal if this proposition was his own our just something he was discussing) there was an idea put forth that differing physical features of races is due to sexual selection. This evidenced by the fact that two tall people of different races are found to have more genetic common compared to a tall and short person among the same race. I personally think its a case of sexual selection at the aid of natural selection. Those whose skin was best suited to an environment were healthier, more attractive, so sexually selected, thus accelerating natural selection. Only mention this case for the purpose of realizing that sexual selection has had an actual and significant effect on the human species. My observation~~~ it appears that the mammary glands of human females are much larger, and more aesthetically pleasing than the same glands manifested in other apes. They develop beyond what is neccisary for the function of producing milk. My question~~~~~ Is the degree of development of female mammary glands a case of sexual/artistic selection, above and beyond what would have been selected by forces of nature, and practical needs?

    Help me

    wikipedia is the answer to everything
  6. thanks matt (and others), i suspected it was something more along those lines, (simply filtering the harsher noise, rather than really enhancing anything), but i was hoping. Still i think my idea sounds reasonable enough that i could market a product with no scientific proof whatsoever (or with a few shabby tests, and some testimonials). Thats what most of those info-mercial diet pills are, so why cant I?
  7. i was at a loud concert of some sort. The music is so loud it temproraily damages your ears (obviously in the long run more permenantly if exposed too much, but thats not really relevant to the concerning issue). This of coarse makes it harder to hear the music. I realized if i lightly plugged my ears, i was shielded from the full volume, and yet what i did hear seemed to be much clearer music. I wondered if this had to do with the soundwaves using my fingers as antenaes, and since sound travels faster (and more efficiently?) through a solid (my fingers being more solid than air). If that is not in any degree really correct, tell me, but if my deduction is right . . . What if everyone at a concert everyone wore a type of headset, with a plugish type thing placed lightly in the ear, and an antenae of some sort angled toward the musicians (the best length for the antenae would definately have some science involved, cuz if its too large i'm sure that would cause distortion). Would this in effect, give the sound a better medium to travel through, thus enhancing the experience? Well tell me what you think---- is there any potential in the idea, or do i deserve to be eliminated from the gene pool?
  8. aha, thank you. i dont think i can say i know of that movie. i'll have to check it out
  9. Did plants which produce chemicals with medical uses to animals, including to humans, evolve toward having such uses, because that would increase their chance of being preserved? it seems too convenient that a plant would make things that have any use to animals, (except food because in that case i think it was the animals that had to adapt to make use of what is available to eat), such as being pollenated, and in the case of humans, cultivated (far as i know there arent other animals that deliberately plant things). Well please enlighten me cause i am very interested if the answer is known
  10. i think it is ok to put this here instead of relgion, because my question is strictly physical. In fact i wont even mention the Nazarene. . . . well at least its out of my system now. Would the body of a victim of crucifixion cross the theshold of pain and go into shock?
  11. oh god yes is oversimplifications drive me insane. He makes so many statements without backing them up, and then referrs to mountains of evidence, that he implies he'll address and show us later . . . . but he doesn't. I do think his idea of space viruses is neat, but it'd be better if he stuck to science fiction. He's too sure of himself to be a scientist
