  1. Here's a site that coquina presented on this very thread http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/library/07/3/text_pop/l_073_04.html
  2. I frequent other message boards and can tell you, this one has next to no meaningless posts.
  3. We may one day create an A.I. that can simulate intellect, but that doesn't mean that it will be TRUE intellect...
  4. I like biology...I'll register. Couldn't do any harm.
  5. This is very true. My friend showed me this trick a long time ago. I guess flies have this instinct to fly straight up to avoid danger.
  6. I think this happens in jogging as well. After you run for a while, it just seems like you run without thinking about.
  7. Won't taking something to simulate your pituitary gland make you grow taller than normal?
  8. Oh yeah! ...obviously someone hasn't read/seen War of the Worlds
  9. I bet they would be reptiles. Hell, Reptiles used to rule this planet once already.
  10. I believe, at least in The United States, HIV was discovered, in the early 80's, among the homosexual male community. Just to say that HIV was transmitted into the our species, how can its prevalence in the homosexual community be explained. Just curious...
  11. Are the exact chemicals, that cause jealousy, known?
  12. A while ago, I remember reading that it was shown, in a scientific study, that exercise can cause the regeneration of neurons. Does anyone else know anything about this?
  13. Believe it or not, but someone at my school (University of Pittsburgh) tried to use this discovery as a way to prove the "bias" within the science community. See for yourself: http://www.pittnews.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2005/01/25/41f613c328202
  14. Yes, I'm interested in knowing whether it actually is possible to grow new nerve cells. I'm in a college biology class right now, and my Professor distinctively said that nerve cells do not grow back. So if there really is a new scientific discovery, of regenerating neurons, my Prof. hasn't heard of it yet. When I read the article, I assumed that the Scientist took the brain cells from mice stem cells and then cultured them. Is this far off?
  15. Gee, thats strange. Unless that answer is always one, I don't see how (1/f(x)) = f(x). I think I'll leave this problem to a mathematician. Sorry...
