    What is faith?

    You guys are right, my response was almost exactly the opposite of what I meant to say. I missed it even rereading it. I must be getting senile. My intent was to ask for something the supernatural had taught us that superseded science. I remember the exchange but why I wrote what I did I cannot explain. I apologize for the quote mining accusation...

    What is faith?

    Quote mine much? You guys left out the qualifier of faith I used... Not to mention I was answering someone who stated what we think of as woo will be science... You guys also left out the rest of the conversation I was replying to where it was said woo will become science.

    Genetic engineering

    Possibly I was a bit to vague, can we do genetic changes in animals by manipulating their genes to cause them to have things like extra limbs that actually work rather than just stick out at random.

    Genetic engineering

    How close are we to making animals to order, something like a hexapod salamander? Impossible? Or just no incentive to do so?
  10. I just posted a story, here is the link....

    Fluorine vs hydrogen

    Thanks, for the answers, just something I have long wondered about...

    Fluorine vs hydrogen

    I'm gonna ask a stupid question, fluorine lacks one valence electron hydrogen lacks one electron yet hydrogen is not considered a halogen... yet helium has two electrons in it's outer shell and is a Nobel gas...why?

    Interplanetary/Interstellar Travel

    I, of course, have a different take on interstellar travel based on the Winnebago! Large O'Neill cylinders or torus type space habitats will eventually travel to other stars by hoping from one small icy body to another, slowly spreading out like a new animal in a deserted habitat. Controlled fusion would be the key and we all know it's only 10 years away... Rendezvousing with icy bodies would mean the travelers would take thousands of years to get to another star but each icy body rendezvous would be a chance to top up on volatile elements and if the icy body was big enough use it to build more habitats. Using this method we could occupy the entire galaxy in a few million to tens of millions of years and never even visit a planet. Planets would not be needed anymore than a Winnebago needs cities...
