7 Tips Maximizing Dell Laptop Battery Life

Condition the battery When you purchase your Dell Inspiron Laptop Batteries, charge the Dell battery to 100 percent, discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent again to help the battery computer dell laptop remember exactly how much electrical charge it can hold. From then on, you’ll never need to completely discharge the battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to “remember to plug in the AC adapter (or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebooks will recharge quickly.” Salinas had another tip for your batteries: “Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a battery’s worst enemy,” he said.

Decrease hard drive activity To minimize the frequency with which your hard disk has to spin up to access data, Salinas recommended defragmenting your hard drive regularly. This optimizes the placement of data on the drive so that it can be found more quickly. You can find the Disk Degfragmenter in the Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools menu. Beyond that, he advised optimizing Windows’ paging file, which is an area of the hard drive that serves as virtual memory whenever your RAM is full. To change it, go to the Control Panel and click through System/Advanced/Performance Settings/Advanced/Virtual Memory Change and set both the initial and maximum paging file size to 1.5 times the capacity of the installed memory.

Disable startup items Startup items load into memory every time Windows boots up, which causes other open applications to spill over into virtual memory and adds to the CPU load. You can disable the startup options by opening the associated programs and going to the Options or Preferences menu. You can also remove them from the Start/Programs/Startup folder or by clicking Start/Run, entering C:MSCONFIG, and clicking OK. Select the Startup tab and clear the checkbox beside any unnecessary background items, like qttask (QuickTime).

    Why do people believe that god created life?
    One of the problems that I have with theism is that theists claim that god created life. The logic behind this is that life is complex, therefore life must have a designer (a weak deduction at best). I’ve heard this claim made repeatedly in the past because of what is stated in religious texts and the fact that offspring often look like their parents. So I challenge this creationist idea by stating that there are lots of things in life that form without a creator.

    I will begin with a very simple example. If you put multiple droplets of oil into water, given time these droplets will aggregate into one large oil blob due to oil being amphipathic. At no time in ever observing this event have I ever noticed “the hand of god” placing these oil droplets together. Now I will move on to a more relevant example involving life. In the Miller–Urey experiment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller-Urey_experiment), prehistoric conditions were replicated in a flask and after some time, amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) formed in the flask, spontaneously without the aid of a god. Although the scientific community does not agree on how the first cell was actually created, there are multiple theories that each follow and sound logic with evidence to back it up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis#Spontaneous_generation). At the very least, even the most devout creationist must admit that any one of these theories are as viable as the creationist view of a magic man wishing everything into existence.

    So here we have a very good example that life and it’s building blocks can form without the aid of a god. So now I challenge theists/creationists to explain where does god come into play and I would also like details on the process that he uses to create life. I would also like to know why I can’t observe god “creating” with any of my senses since I possess the 5 basic senses that every fully functional human has, and don’t tell me I have to believe in him because belief does not influence the truth. I can believe in Santa all I want but that will never make him real. I can also believe that dogs aren’t real but the fact is that they do exist. Once again, belief does not affect reality.

    Don’t post a bunch of religious quotes because I won’t read them and there is no evidence that any of that is true. Unlike peer reviewed scientific articles that anyone can replicate and confirm for themselves, religious texts are just a bunch of unconfirmable nonsense that was written down and was proclaimed to be truth. Lastly, please don’t tell me that we can not comprehend or “see” god creating because you only make yourself sound more ridiculous by believing in something you can’t see and/or understand. I’ll end by saying that I’m not trying to restrict your answer but at the same time I would only like a fair answer that anyone could analyze and scrutinize.Thank you for reading and all sound and rational answers are welcomed.

    Side Note: I use the word “see” very loosely here because there are lots of things in life we can’t see with our naked eyes (other galaxies, magnetism, gravity, oxygen, radiation, etc.) but we are still able to confirm their existence with machines that augment our senses (spectrometers, night vision goggles, geiger counters, telescopes, etc.)

      “The logic behind this is that life is complex therefore it must have a designer.”
      Wrong premise will ultimately lead one to a wrong conclusion………not much worth reading when the foundational premise is so incorrect at inception.

    What do you think of this Quote by Dario Fo (The Winner of the Noble Prize in 1997) about Kurdistan?
    This is a remarkable piece of prose by Dario Fo, which he actually wrote quite recently and submitted to the Turkish press :

    “Kurdistan lives. It burns in the mind of every single person of the 35 million people who were robbed of their identity and made into refugees in Turkey, Iraq and Europe. It is burning and living in the fires of Newroz and in jails where 12,000 political prisoners are buried in isolation cells. It lives in the memory of those who disappeared and in the scars of those who disappeared and in the scars of those who were tortured. It is burning and living in the mountains of the popular resistance, called terrorism by the western world.”

    Only Answer if able to read long letter; Would this upset you if received from your MIL?
    My DIL makes palns with me then when i arrive has made other plans insisting anything is more important than me. How would you feel if you received this letter?

    Dear Lisa,
    Communication and cooperation is non-existent between you and me. I ask Joe for permission to visit, I hear you tell him what is allowed in the back ground, and then when I arrive, you have made other plans that are more important than me.
    You eliminated me from Joe’s life long ago (he is not allowed to talk to me, you keep him on the cell phone the entire time) and this summer you took the children away every time I came down. I am confused that you keep score of the time I spend in your home (by myself) and indicate that your parents deserve more time because I was there.
    Every time I set foot in your home, Joe tells me I am a burden and hard on your marriage. He indicates a fight with you already began because I came down and if I stay it will get worse, so I must stay with my ex-husband (whose brother Albert and Jane hate me) and wait to see when you are in the mood to tolerate me being in your home while you go to work or out with your mom or Jane or other friends.
    Your family and loved ones are free to come and go as pleased, but Joe walks on glass planning when I can visit (making sure you will not be there) and preparing for the fight that will ensue anyway.
    Your parents enjoy time with Joe, you and the kids. I leave with Joe literally reminding me how unwanted I am and makes sure I know no matter what I did or bought, I was truly wanted and hated by you.
    It makes no sense that I drive 4 hours each way and buy food to help your family out that is more than I earn while down there, only to be insulted, rejected and humiliated. My visits cause fear in Joe that his marriage is in jeopardy because my staying at Bob’s and wanting to see my grandchildren makes you angry and sick.
    It was a very difficult decision to quit MY JOB DOWN THERE and to stay away, but I want your marriage with Joe to be happy and with the strain my presence causes you.
    As much as your letters indicate I am welcome, your actions clearly tell me I am not welcome in your life. (See attached outline).
    If at some point you and Joe feel you can treat me with the same level of respect and love you show your parents, Bob and Jane and Albert (your groupthink of more than 20 years- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groupthink), I would like to be part of your life again.
    I would like open communication and cooperation. What you say should be honest and consistent with your actions. If you feel confused by my actions, speak to me rather than accuse Joe of a different interpretation. I wish we could be close and enjoy each other’s company. I thought if I was nice and kept my mouth shut, this would eventually happen. Apparently I was very wrong.
    When I visit, I come to see you, not my ex-husband; hence I expect to stay with you. If I am not welcomed to stay in your home, the way your aunt Kit is with your cousin Heather, or Jean and Maureen with your parents or distant unknown relatives do with your parents, then I understand I am not welcome there and should not visit.
    When you come to my house for a weekend, I expect you to honor your plans and not stay in the guest room angry at Joe the entire time.
    When Joe rides with me in the car, he is not to talk and argue with you on the cell phone the entire time and plans made are to be honored. I deserve respect. Joe should be comfortable respecting his wife and mother not have to choose one or the other.
    If we are able to work through this, I will make an effort to express my feelings quickly, so there is no confusion about how I feel.
    If I am invited on vacations with you, I anticipate being part of the plans and not expected to fly separately and stay somewhere by myself at a higher rate.
    In the future when you refuse to take trips with me and allow Amelia to come alone, please do not tell me you are keeping score and you and Joe are taking another family vacation with your parents to keep it fair.
    Lastly, I do expect an apology from Joe for hanging up on me. I understand that he feels he has to choose between his wife and his mother, but this is between you and him. I deserve open and honest communication. I was this way throughout his life and do not deserve anything less now.
    AnnMarie, JCD and D; thank you for your support and kindness. My DIL has sent me multiple mean letters since i quit my job and stopped visiting. Unfortunately I feel Libby’s attitude is closer to how my DIL will interpret anything I say or do. She only wants her parents in their life. I know I lost my son and he will never stand up to her until ther chidlren are grown (she threatens divorce and will not talk to him when she doesn’t get her way) I was very close to my granddaughter, but her older dau to a previous relationship before my son married her and her mother are both very upset with how close we are.
    I have just stayed away, but my ex calls and tells me my granddaugher cries and asks why I don’t love her anymore.
    I ache to see her.
    Anna, I wrote, but have not sent this letter. You confirm what I think would be the attitude, which is why I haven’t responded to her letters.
    She is a mean person, but married to my son and I agree with you and Libby, she does not have to be rational, she can do what ever she pleases and my son has to be happy with his choices. I am not going to send it, because I know she thinks the way you and Libby do. I know there is nothing I can say or do that will not be twisted.
    Thank you for your feedback. It hurts, but it indictaes silince is the only way to maintain my own dignity.
    PS Anna, I disagree with your advice to kill her with sweetness. This is mean and manipulating. That is what she does, she tells me to buy groceries and visit, then makes plans to go away, so I leave the groceries for them to eat later and I don’t get to see them. I loved my own inlaws, so this is new to me. She used to be my dau. best friend, and my dau said she was mean, but I didn’t judge her. Only now that I am her object of hatred I understand why my dau. was angry when I defend my DIL in the past. (If i didn’t know better, I would think my dau. wrote the movie “You Again”, the details are eerily close to our situation).
    Beenther: I am the MIL and I did ask about counciling. I was told no. Joe and Lisa went in the past and the councelor told Lisa she has a lot of issues with her own parents to be worked out, she stopped going because she wanted the counselor to blame Joe. Even with me out of the picture, she blames Joe for everything in her life. Much like the movie “You Again” Jane and I never got along since she got pregnant and dropped out of school. Jane is Lisa’s bestfriend’s mom. I do think she instigates some of our problems. originally Lisa seemed to like me very much, then this past year she decided she hates me.
    Motivation: I want to see my grandchildren. I can let go of my son. I miss him, but that is life. I am busy with my own career and do not have the time or desire to be the butt of their problems.
    I suppose I just need some resolution and I pray my grandchildren know I love them, even though I am not visiting any more. I know her parents will dote on them and be good to them.
    Also, beenthre- try looking up convert-aggression! Usually things are not what they seem, so before giving advise, try learning more about motives behind actions.

    • Honeybee says:

      I am experiencing some MIL issues that have not been addressed. This letter looks too familiar. It’s kinda sad and irritates me at the same time. How do YOU feel about your MIL? I don’t like mine, she irritates the piss out of me and always plays the victim. I really try to be fair about things and keep my mouth shut as much as possible. I guess if I honestly had a choice, I would choose to not have her in my life. But that’s not realistic. If someone is honestly a good person, then I would not feel this way. I wish for one thing she would quit telling me how much more important she is to my hub, like she has the urge to “claim” him whenever she comes around. You should reply if you haven’t already….just keep it simple as possible. I’d like to know what’s really going on. Good luck anyways…

      No one likes to hear things they’ve done wrong, especially if they already feel threatened. I honestly think this will only be used to torcher your son more. She will blame him. I’m sorry this is how things are. I suppose a lot of families have similar problems.

      I do try to make things fair overall…I think there are equal amount of hateful dil’s as there are mil’s same with sweet ones who behave like they were biologically connected. Just remember, what goes around comes around. I always believe when people are truly acting out from negative feelings, it will not end well within themselves.

      i can’t get over that she made u buy groceries….who does that?

    Why do people who abuse children and torture them only go to jail?
    I’ve read a few cases all consisting of parents beating a child to death with torture with things i don’t want to put here as they are so disgusting. If you’d like to read them here are two examples: http://www.imperfectparent.com/topics/2011/02/24/couple-arrested-for-allegedly-abusing-adoptive-children-made-them-eat-dog-food-sleep-in-dog-cages/

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Victoria_Climbi%C3%A9

    Both are AWFUL stories. I wanna know why the abusers are only sent to jail where they can live a free life in a cell. Surely they should be given proper PUNISHMENTS consisting of something that will show them how bad they have been?! -
    Dresden Rose – You feel someone who has raped, burnt, bitten, forced dog food to someone deserves to have the same rights as mine? Because I do not. Yes we are all humans, however treating someone like that is just not OK.

      If you go to jail and your inmates find out it was fr hurting a child… you are as good as dead

    Naruto Shippuden Vs. Aang: Last Air Bender?
    PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE COMMENTING OTHERWISE DON’T.

    OK, I know it’s gotten a little old but i finally got to fully watch both series and i will list their abilities.
    Here goes: Naruto
    Limited Regeneration(destroys his cells in the process), Shadow Clone Technique(can learn anything his clones did, can create massive amounts of them), Rasengan(Wind Release: Rasengan(shape transformation and nature transformation, the victim becomes trapped in a giant vortex of microscopic wind-blades that attack the body on a cellular level) Wind Release(can cut things with his chakra), Senjutsu(sense and gather the natural energy around him), Sage Mode(drastically increase the strength of all ninjutsu, genjutsu, and taijutsu), Frog Kata(powerful fighting style during sage mode), Intelligence(deception using shadow clones to confuse foe), Toad Summon Skills(summon massive toads to fight with him) and collaborate together[collaboration Jutsu] to create new jutsu), Jinchūriki(monstrous amount of chakra, Eight-Tailed Transformation), Transformation Technique( able to change his appearance to deceive especially sexy technique, become naked sexy naruto girls)
    Body Replacement Technique(escape from harm)
    [info from here: http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Naruto_Uzumaki

    Aang:
    Airbending( Baguazhang: air bending martial art consists of intricate foot and palm movements to dodge, walk circles around the enemy and strike unexpectedly as well as defend from all angles, air is his natural element,youngest airbending master in history,create tornadoes and currents of air strong enough to lift or deflect extremely heavy objects, invented a new Airbending move, the Air Scooter[same principal like rasengan of rotating air at high speed only he uses it for transportation/fun,can fly with a big rasengen surrounding his body), Waterbending( Tai Chi which features slow movements and elegant forms that evoke the feel of flowing water,Waterbending's strength is its defensive capabilities which, rather than supporting a separate set of offensive methods, are transformed into attacks and counters - defense into offense, creates massive tidal waves, bending entire streams of water, bend an entire ocean to rise in avatar state, water can be used to heal but don't know if aang can use it or not), Firebending(Dancing Dragon:Powerful fire bending martial arts able to incapacitate[destroy] a Fire Nation Airship,lightning redirection(absorbs lightning as energy then shooting back anywhere he wants), Earthbending( Hung Gar Kung Fu which features heavily rooted stances and strong kicks and punches that evoke the mass and power of earth based on the movements of animals, including the tiger, which is utilized when initiating hard blows, and the crane, which is used to land gently back on the Earth capable of bending large boulders, sending massive columns of rock flying,forming earthen armor around his body for protection even crystals, Seismic Sense(detect vibrations in the ground and perceive objects and their enviroment), in Avatar mode can manipulate massive columns of rock, compress boulders into pebbles, send rocks flying at mach speeds, and requires no physical connection with the ground to Earthbend, Toph can metalbend don’t know if aang can or not), Energybending( ability to bend life & natural energy, can feel and stop Senjutsu, bending a person’s life energy can impart them with knowledge instantly or remove one’s bending completely e.g. naruto’s chakra or kyubii, not sure but since kyubi is essentially energy[mass amount of chakra], Aang is extremely agile and quick, Spirit(has the wisdom of all previous avater before him at his disposal, Medium(can act as a medium, a bridge between mortal world and the Spirit World, the plane of existence where the universe’s disembodied spirits dwell. Through inducing a deep meditative state, Aang can separate from his body and travel the physical world’s astral plane in astral form and communicate with non-corporeal beings allows him to channel other spirits while in the Avatar State e.g. kyubi? Can create a wall of compressed wind fire water and rock around himself(kinda of like kekkaishi zekkai if you know) and attack whith them all simultaneously. Although passive as a monk, aang is very intelligent. [info from http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Aang

    Done! So what do you think, i made it as fair as i knew the characters.

    READ ALL BEFORE ANSWERING. NO STUPID RESPONSE OR DON’T COMMENT AT ALL!

    • S.M.K says:

      Ang all the way. Naruto is not faster than ang and ang can feel him anyway whither it be heat source seismic sence atmospher or even in water and ang controls air so rasengan is out of the way. he can energyband when he took away the firelords power and paralyze him so he can do the same with kyubi tail naruto. naruto can’t even touch him with his elemental shield around him and he can fly and attack from the sky however he wants. kyubi’s element is fire and ang can firebend, waterbend, eathbend and energybend so he can control all nature chakra and life energy plus he’s only 12 and naruto’s 17 or something. all he got to to is seal kyubi with his energybending and naruto’s gone man

    Religious Opposition to Stem Cell research?
    Im an atheist, and have no ethical oppositions to things like stem cell research. Im beginning to wonder why many religious people have issues with stem cell research. Recently my brother was in a horse riding accident, he broke his spine and is now paraplegic for life. I was discussing with his doctor about any chances of him regaining the use of his legs (riding is his life and he’s devastated), and the doctor mentioned that in the future, stem cell research could find a cure, if studies were recieving less opposition.

    i asked him where most of the oppositions comes from, and he said that mostly it was from religious (esp. christian) people.

    I dont mean to cause any offense, but i think its a little selfish that they impose and enforce their beliefs to the point where they destroy someones lively hood (as i feel has been done to my brother). i feel that such beliefs are holding back medical science.

    as seen in this photo are ways that stem cells could be used to cure illness/injury in the future: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stem_cell_treatments.svg

    what are your opinions on this??

    thanks everybody!!! just wanted to say that i dont mean to cause any offense!!!
    sophie: were in canada, so what you said doesnt apply to us. and i have a very good reason to be angry, people’s ethical beliefs are preventing my brothers cure.

    seriously, if people have an opposition to it, they should just refuse treatment when they become paralised for life, instead of preventing the cure from being found for those who want it

    • arus.geo says:

      well, your doctor is partly correct; what the “religious” side of the stem cell argument is really focused on is WHERE those stem cells are coming from.

      If you ask even a devout christian if they dont mind stem cells coming from Adults, then you probably wont see much arguments from them

      The biggest “complaint” is that many advocate in getting stem cells from embryos, and that such “demand” for these stem cells will “lead” into embryo farming. Which, if they are like pro-lifers, they are adamantly against.

      The next proposal to get stem cells from new born babies (specifically the umbilical cord and the placenta). Since no life is being sacrificed (ie abortion) and this is a natural part of birth, that may be the middle ground for everyone to accept, however ACCESS immediately to these items is hard to get to, and usually must have the permission of the mother (or parents)

  7. A A says:

    Do we agree on why abiogenesis is impossible?
    Abiogenesis is impossible because:

    1. The cell created by the means of abiogenesis must have digestion, respiration, replication genes in its DNA, else it isn’t literally alive

    2. As you will see here, a gene coding a protein ALWAYS starts with the code for the Methyonine aminoacid and ends with a stop codon

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Start_codon
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_codon

    Mistake cannot create complex digestive or respiratory proteins because
    - their code is too long and too precise;
    - any protein starts with Methyonine as the first aminoacid;

    3. See here how unlikely the possibility of getting the correct proteins needed from a random DNA code is

    http://www.vivo.colostate.edu/molkit/translate/

    God is the Author of life

    Methyonine is always the first element coding a protein.

    Encountering a methyonine and a stop codon in the right order is very unlikely in a DNA created by random chance.
    Only an Intelligent Designer can write it correctly

    • Jason T says:

      >>Encountering a methyonine and a stop codon in the right order is very unlikely in a DNA created by random chance.< <

      What if you have trillions and trillions of samples to play with?

      The odds of winning the UK National Lottery are 14 million to one against. The population of the UK is 60 million. If every man woman and child played the lottery one one week, the odds favour at least four jackpot winners. Given time and enough mateirla, any combination of gene code is possible, and it only takes the one that can reproduce rapidly to arise once by chance and then the population increases and diversifies over time.

      >>Only an Intelligent Designer can write it correctly<<

      But he didn’t, did he? There are so many examples of bad design. Why do I have an appendix, which does nothing useful but may get infected and kill me? Why do mamallian male reproductive organs dangle around outisde the body where they are prone to injury at any time? Why does the panda live on one of the least nutritious foods ever, and yet does not have opposable thumbs to actually grip it with so it spends time it could be eating picking up dropped bamboo?

      Abiogenesis may be incomprehensible to you, but it is incredibly arrogant to assume that makes it impossible.

    nato should liberate libya othewise gaddafi will bring russia and china into the picture?
    COME, LORD JESUS,
    ================

    NORTH AFRICA HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE EUROPEAN BACKYARD SINCE THE TIME OF ROMAN EMPEROR JULIUS CAESAR.

    AMERICAN 6TH FLEET BASE IN ITALY SHOULD SPEARHAD THE LIBERATION OF LIBYA.

    U.S. Naval forces entering the Mediterranean Sea are assigned (“chopped”) to Sixth Fleet. Sixth Fleet has consisted of up to 40 ships, 175 aircraft and 21,000 people, such as in early 2003, when two carrier battlegroups operated in the Mediterranean in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom

    BI BOMBER HAS BEEN USE IN LIBYA AND IT SHOULD PROVIDE AIR SUPREMACY FOR AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN VICTORY MARCH IN TRIPOLI, LIBYA VERY SOON.

    SERBIA SERRENDER BECAUSE OF AMERICAN AIRPOWER.

    THE SAME SHOULD BE DONE IN LIBYA INORDER TO SAVE LIVES.

    THOSE 260 EUROFIGHER 200O SHOULD BE USE TO WIPEOUT LIBYA AIRFORCE COMPLETELY.

    THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE WILL SEE EUROFIGHTER 2000 IN ACTION.

    THERE IS A BIG MARKET FOR EUROFIGHTER 2000 IN THE COMING DAYS.

    SO FAR ABOUT 471 HAS BEEN ORDER BY SOME NATIONS.

    IT COST US$ 500,000,000 A PIECE.

    500,000,000
    X 500
    ================
    US$ 250,000,000,000
    ================
    US$ 250 BILLION DOLLARS?

    AFTER THE CONQUEST OF LIBYA, EUROPE COULD MADE ABOUT US$ 1,200,000,000,000 FROM THE SALE OF EUROFIGHER 2000 TO ALL NATIONS?

    ON A SECOND THOUGHT F35 FROM AMERICA COULD OVERTAKE EUROFIGHTER 2000 BECAUSE IT IS MADE IN AMERICA?

    WHY F35 WAS NOT SEEN IN LIBYA AND ONE REASON IS BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN RECALL FOR INNOVATION.

    HENCE, NATO SHOULD LIBERATE LIBYA WITH ABOUT 150,000 SOLDIERS.

    NATO HAS ABOUT 28 MEMBERS THEREFORE 280,000 SOLDIERS FROM THESE NATIONS WILL BE SEND TO LIBYA TO MENTAIN LAW AND ORDER.

    10,000 SOLDIERS PER NATION IS REASONABLE.

    SOME LEADERS DO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF GENOCIDE?

    PRESIDENT GADDAFI SHOULD BE CAPTURE AND TAKEN TO EUROPE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT TO DECIDE HIS FATE. (ICT)

    The International Criminal Court (French: Cour Pénale Internationale; commonly referred to as the ICC or ICCt)[1] is a permanent tribunal to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression (although it cannot currently exercise jurisdiction over the crime of aggression).[2][3]

    IF HE IS FOUND GUILTY HE COULD BE JAIL FOR 20 YEARS OR FOR 1,000 YEARS.

    PRESIDENT GADDAFI COULD USE THE PRISON WHERE PRESIDENT MILOSEVIC ONCE LIVED BEFORE HE DIED BECAUSE OF MEDICAL PROBLEM.

    Milošević conducted his own defense in the five-year long trial, which ended without a verdict when he died on 11 March 2006 in his prison cell in The Hague.[5] Milošević, who suffered from heart ailments and high blood pressure, died of a heart attack.[6][7][7][8] The Tribunal denies any responsibility for Milošević’s death. They claim that he refused to take prescribed medicines and medicated himself instead.[9]

    WHATEVER, IT IS WISE FOR PRESIDENT GADDAFI TO LIVE IN AMERICAN PRISON BECAUSE HE HAS ABOUT US$ 70,000,000,000?

    ONCE, NATO HAS TAKEN OVER LIBYA THEN THE FIRST THING TO DO IS TO HOLD GENERAL ELECTION FOR THE PRESIDENCE OF LIBYA, PARLIMENT, STATE GOVERNMENT, DISCTRICT LEVEL AND ECT.

    I THINK LIBYAN PEOPLE ARE MATURE TO ELECT THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THIS WORLD IS COMING TO AN END AROUND 2020 AD.

    I THINK LIBYA COULD FOLLOW THE IRAQ EXPERIENCE.

    IRAQ IS A SHOW CASE OF DEMOCRACY IN THE ARAB WORLD.

    GOD BLESS ISRAEL.

    How do they plan to reduce the population down to 500 million and by when?
    How do they plan to reduce the population down to 500 million and by when?
    USA let a monument go up and stay up in Georgia called “The Georgia Guidestones” On the stones it says in multiple languages the population needs to be a diverse 500 million
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Guidestones

    How exactly do they plan to get it down to 500 million and by when?
    How would you do it fairly?

    The rich elite alone are about 1% of total population so about 70 million.
    Maybe their closest helpers are another 1-2%? so another 70-140 million.
    The only thing I can think of is the locavores and vegans make up another few hundred million?
    The rest of the population are meat eaters and that’s so not green and not many think about the potential silent mad cow disease pandemic. It can incubate for decades without symptoms.?

    Read articles like this:
    People could be infected with the human form of mad cow disease for more than 50 years without developing the illness, which means the size of a potential epidemic may be underestimated, British scientists said Friday.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/06/22/world/europe/22iht-brain.2031890.html?_r=1

    The only other thing the masses do that you don’t see the rich elite do as much is is use cell phones a lot and eat lots of processed junk while being sedentary with net and TV. Police used to carry radar guns near their pelvis and had higher rates of cancer and now we carry these little super powerful cells that can call someone across the world and surf the net, etc. We think nothing of things and go on blindly because life is ok in the moment. Don’t stay distracted too long.

    Just want people to think twice and make wise choices. Maybe its time to give up meat and get your loved ones to do so too UNLESS it is locavore. Also I don’t count vegetarians as safe unless their standard chain brand dairy are locavore too because some say the prions that cause the human form of mad cow disease may be passed through dairy UNLESS it is grass-fed and possibly raw.

    But still by when? It can’t be all at once, how do you dispose of 6.5 billion bodies at once?

    I know some of you are still in the dark and know nothing or little of this or laugh at such but so did the local German villagers said while the holocaust was going on and the white ashes were raining down BUT Hitler isn’t as sophisticated and global! And frankly, it is getting a little crowded and earth is suffering. Enough rich elite such as Queen Elizabeth’s husband and TV mogul Ted Turner have all talked about a great reduction of population and called humanity a cancer to earth so wake up. If we can’t talk about this rationally, that’s why they’ll just do us in. I want the chance.
    Goose how is this a conspiracy theory? My sister saw the Georgia Guidestones with her own eyes and read on it about how population should be maintained at 500 million and not to be a cancer to Earth.

    I saw the videos on youtube of Ted Turner saying over 90% of humanity should be done away with. He later recanted and said maybe not that extreme and just 1/3. I’m not sure of the YT vids are still up.

    Are you n denial? Go back to your Big Mac and sit on the couch and watch Snooki’s on TV then.

    The German villagers documented in the 8 hour SHOAH also laughed it off when they heard the tales of the the holocaust camps. So many of you are no different so good riddance.

      no offense but the type of people who answer here are the 90% they don’t want around

    Was happy slapping common in the USA? And what do you think of the fad?
    Thank god the fad is over I say and its got to be the worst to hit my area.
    They say Happy slapping originated in South London it is: Unprovoked attacks (usually a slap) on individuals made in order to record the event, and especially the victim’s shock and surprise, on video usually your mobile/cell phone.
    Yes Ill admit but i was involved in a couple I just watched because it was sooo popular at the time (2004 – 2005) and I was still young even goody to shoes were gettin involved all kinds but in my area they didnt slap they beat the person to a polt. Ive seen alot and many weird ones in my time they even made two boys kiss once that was just disturbing i feel sorry for them cause that video must of went around the country.
    Common targets were people sleeping on public transport people walking through unlit places or just a random person they know would not fight back looking back now i cant believe I used to enjoy such an evil thing I now know how a thing like that can effect ones life for ever and possibly helped destroying people lifes most people i know who were involved before feel the same way i even know one who wants to become a police officer.

    Major Incidents of it:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_slapping#Media-reported_incidents
    Please dont bad talk me for what I was involved in the past as I never created it nor did I promote it and I do know how wrong it is.
    I just asked this cause I remembered this fad and wanted to know if this fad went worldwide or if in fact it started elsewhere.

    • Sarah says:

      lol no they do not have a name for it, it would be just considered random acts of violence. no one ever got slap happy w/ me and i never witnessed that. the only thing i can think of is bum fights. these guys went around beating up bums and whatnot.

  11. WittyNickname says:

    Is there really free will?
    I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and personally, I do not see how there would be. Because think of it this way, what makes you make decisions? Your personality. You did not choose your personality, your personality was made the way it was by your upbringing, environment, and events that happened in your life, maybe a bit of genetics or God mixed in, if you believe in God. But either way, you did not choose your personality, so by extension, you do not choose how you act. People raised in abusive families act different than people who were raised in perfect, never arguing families. If you were raised in one, imagine how different you would act if you were raised in the other. And all of the people in these events in turn cannot choose their actions, because their personality and how they act was formed the same way. I act different than you because I have a different personality than you. And this brings up another question, why would God (assuming you believe that God exists of course) send anybody to Hell? He made them act the way that they do because he made their personalities, both directly and indirectly through actions that made chain reactions that lead to them being a certain way. Wouldn’t that be a bit malevolent?

    I can’t think of any way in which this would be false. Everything’s basically a chain reaction, and this chain reaction made you and your personality. If you know what Conway’s Game of Life is ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway%27s_Game_of_Life ), think of it sort of like that, only much more complex. The cells don’t choose to turn on or off, they do because of certain events that make them, which are, in this case, another cell being on beside them.

    So basically, what you do is based on your personality, and your personality is based on events out of your control, which means your personality is out of your control, which in turn means what you do is out of your control.

    Does anybody have any opinions on this, or anything that would make it false? I see no way in which it could be false, so I would like to hear what you have to say about it.

    Through searching, I’ve found a theory that pretty much fits what I believe called Determinism. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determinism ) You can read up on that link to find out more about it.
    Yvan: Did you even think about this or take this into consideration at all?

    Ron: I see no reason to hope for free will. It feels like we have free will anyway, so it doesn’t really matter to us. People would think they would if they didn’t know about this.
    Publius: I don’t see how chaos and randomness would work out into this. Everything would pretty much be pre-determined. Even Schrodinger’s Cat, the outcome of that would be predetermined.

    Junior: But why would they choose that instead of all the other possibilities? What brings them to that choice? There would be people who are too weak in the way they act to go outside of what they were raised in, but they didn’t CHOOSE to be like that. It’s not like before they were concieved, they decided, oh, I’m going to tend towards actions of weakness. They were made that way because of outside events, their environment, genetics, God, whatever.
    ONE: Why?

    Helper: Perhaps I just tend to think about what makes things happen and philosophy? And why do I do that? It’s my personality. Outside events are what cause the spark that make people change their personality. If this spark wouldn’t have happened, they wouldn’t have changed. God made humans. God gave them their personality, both directly and indirectly. Their personality is what makes their decisions. I don’t see whats not logical here, it seems like a perfectly logical chain of events.

    Robert: What makes one person tend more towards accepting than another person?
    Mama: Why do you think that? What is the reasoning for that against this? You’re just saying something and giving nothing as to why it would be true.
    Dave: When did you choose your personality then? Before you were born? Because changing your personality after you acquired a personality would mean your decision to change or not change would take your personality and outside events into account, both of which you had no way of creating yourself.
    vm4: You have a good way of putting it. Pool is a nice analogy. And if there was some other force that could not be defined with particles, such as God, or some other deity, if we knew the methods by which it worked, we would know what would happen next. I think you can say that free will both exists and does not exist, due to us not being able to know how anything relating to what we do is brought about, due to all of the tiny intricacies and events that seem meaningless, but actually do a whole lot when put together.

    And also, your comment about the computer leads to another whole scenario to this God existing/God not existing argument: How do we know that we are not just one of countless computer simulations created by a highly advanced race?

    • T.Ruth says:

      I disagree. People change every day when they decide they’re going to be different.
      I have a sister. We were both raised in the same home with a terribly abusive mother. We are very different people. I used to be more timid until I decided I wasn’t going to be that way any more and I work to be different. I am a very strong woman today because I chose to be. When I invited my sister to change with me, she believed she was strong in stating she felt there was no reason or value in it. She is a sorry excuse for a woman today if you ask me, but that was her own free will choice, and she could still change her mind at any time and work towards making changes in her life. No one stops her and she has no one to blame but herself.

      Alcoholics get sober, addicts get clean……….people decide all the time they’ve had enough and work to change, many successfully accomplish their goals.

      If you were correct, people would not be able to change since they would be “products of their environment” and therefore “programmed” to some degree to a specific conduct. It’s just not true and is easily witnessed in the lives of those around you.

      Even if someone puts a gun to your head and tells you to do something or suffer the consequences, you have the freedom to make the choice, knowing the consequences…some will cave to the pressure of the gun while others will choose not to give into the threat.

    Should we revive our childhood friendship?
    When I was little, I used to be unschooled (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unschooling) And I had a good friend who was homeschooled. We hung out pretty often and she was a lot of fun. The only problem is that her mom is WAYYY over-protective, which is why she’s home schooled. No boys over, ever. Her mom makes her breakfast, lunch and dinner, and she must eat what’s on her plate with no snacks. The say grace every time before eating. She couldn’t get a facebook till only last week, and her mom reads all her messages, approves all her friends, chooses her profile picture and reads EVERYTHING. for some reason her mom lets her wear a crap load of make-up though….except no eyeliner, and her lip-stick and lip gloss must be red or pink. I can only call her cell phone, text messaging isn’t allowed. Her hobby is playing piano and singing (go figure). To top it all off, she’s drop dead gorgeous, like a model. …hahaha i can’t really compare myself to her. Soooo we haven’t talked in like 5 years, and all the sudden she facebook chats me and wants to hang out. The problem is I dyed my hair black, I play electric guitar, skinny jeans and easy-mac is my life. I listen to alternative/punk/metal rock music, and she listens to pop. I’ve been going to public school inthe city and I’ve changed a lot…. Should I try to revive our old friendship or let it die off? hahahaha sorry this was a long post.
    lmao, the problem is her mom not her herself.

    sorry folks, another question to all the EPL regs in the footie section ?
    Do you believe in such a thing as ‘the soul’ ?

    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Ayrton_Senna)

    Professor Sidney Watkins, a world-renowned neurosurgeon and Formula One Safety Delegate and Medical Delegate, head of the Formula One on-track medical team, who performed an on-site tracheotomy on Ayrton Senna, reported:

    – He looked serene. I raised his eyelids and it was clear from his pupils that he had a massive brain injury. We lifted him from the cockpit and laid him on the ground. As we did, he sighed and, although I am totally agnostic, I felt his soul depart at that moment.[1] -

    digest that quote by Prof Sidney Watkins for a second. When does one cease believing in science and logic, and go into the paranormal dimension scope of thinking ?

    when one starts talkingabout ‘souls’ ?

    but the soul – surely is undetectable, unmeasurable and in a way an unknown itself yet spiritualists are adamant it exists.

    if the brain ceases to function, and dies – but the heart can still function slightly and/or artificialy through medical attention , are we ‘dead’ or just ‘brain dead’ ? but the heart is still pumping body around the body and supplying ‘life’ to various cell structures within the body yes ?

    eerie stuff.

    so if the heart stops – its all over obviously. but one can keep the heart functioning artificualy too , if the brain is fine – the person doesnt die.

    ‘they’ say, the soul is closer to the heart than the brain – but then another bunch of ‘they’ say its closer to the brain (in the mind, another intangible thing) than the heart.

    its hard to grasp the idea that we have this ‘super natuarl thing inside of us’ called ‘soul’.

    when really, were just flesh, tissue, bone, cellular structures.

    wtf was the qusetion ? do you believe in such a thing as a soul ?

    i respect you all v.much for answering my questions even when its clear that some of them are not worthy of recieving any attention let alone answers – but on this matter, i REALLY would apprecaite it if you all said your piece.

    help me in 9th grade bio?
    i have my first quiz on stuff i learned my first week of school and i am SUPER scared! i take good notes and studied a lot but im afraid i missed something. im gonna go in early tomorrow to review stuff with my teacher but i wanna go in prepared so he doesnt think im retarded…

    okay so some questions are.. (oh and please answer them with easy words and such.. no like science-y einstein definitions that you find on wiki…)

    were learning about like life.. the 6 characteristics of life, herbivored, etc etc

    1)i really do not understand how photosynthesis works, and i think its really important

    2)i dont understand what it means to be a producer and consumer, how are they different or alike?

    3)in the 6 characteristics of life, its reproduction, organization, homeostasis, growth&development, self initiated movement, and using energy. i am really confused on what organization is.. i know it has something to do with cells but its confusing. and how can i make “using energy” a more descriptive one? and im also confused about homeostasis, i *think* its about keeping your balance, like if your running alot you can lower your body temp…

    if you could please help me understand this for tomorrows quiz i would appreciate it lots! i choose best answer also :)

    • Sally says:

      1) Photosynthesis is how plants produce their own energy. Absorbs Light and Carbon Dioxide and produces oxygen. Technically, if the test is not only about photosynthesis than you won’t need to know so much about it.

      2) A Producer is like a plant. Plants produce their own food and energy. Other examples are trees, flowers, grass and you know, the greens. A consumer is anything that does not produce it’s own food. Like a insect, bird, fly and humans.

      3)I’m not sure how to answer this so I found this link that might help.

    The Constitution has power if not ignored! Attorney General Hardy Myers of Oregon please, Give Out this info to International Media. Like Rick Shenkman Editor of the History News Network and book “Just How Stupid Are We?” Facing the Truth About the American Voter said don’t be stupid voters!

When the President is voted in one of the first things he vows to do is up hold the Constitution, TRUE? “A vow (Lat. votum, vow, promise; see vote) is a promise or oath.” Like a marriage vow or religious vow not to be taken lightly if we want peace and security in our lives. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vow Contact the Oregon legal system at fax 503-378-4017 (

Not that people do not know that BUT NEEDS A DEEP FOCUS PUT ON IT! If that works all I want is a (older good M size) home on wheels, a computer (A nice one), a cell phone (card phone), and needed gas/food/& other needs) etc. for the motor-home and life. I want just a SIMPLE life. And one more thing but that will need to be talked about in privacy about abuse of power towards me (ignore my rights) here from this state of Oregon and another state due to not rightly fixed aright here years ago in this state of Oregon! Not mad just want it fixed! A big CHANGE can come if we think and act in a positive way toward one another and our earth! But first must stop the abuse of power at ALL stages in ALL forms of power anywhere and everywhere! Can we allow ourselves to KEEP IGNORING those facts? You think? And have PEACE? Ask Obama who saved MANY CONSTITUTIONS in the world in courts not fields of wars! I understand he knows constitutional laws well. And should know who saved the Constitution without going to war! They would be a good example to follow! With our own Constitutional free will, like I was doing when the state said I could not do it that way! The state went beyond their right of power control toward me. Just like Bush and his guys did to people of another nation! But I am a citizen from way back in history of this nation. Where is the justice for ALL here? Just Nathan for NOW! 2/12/09 I will make a hard copy of this info just before posting it!

    if abortion is a “lump of cells” or “sack of cells” and not life why does Websters Dictonary say ?
    abortion: 1 : the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus

    “death of the embryo or fetus” to die you must have life.

    “Lump of cells” I thought that ALL humans and living animals are made up of cells?

    abortion is interfering with natures process what about survival of the fittest, it is not a natural way miscarriage is abortion is not.
    abortion : 1 a : to induce the abortion of or give birth to prematurely b : to terminate the pregnancy of before term
    2 a : to terminate prematurely : cancel b : to stop in the early stages

    Did you know that In 2000, cases of rape or incest accounted for 1% of abortions?

    In 2000, cases of rape or incest accounted for 1% of abortions.[26] Another study, in 1998, revealed that in 1987-1988 women reported the following reasons for choosing an abortion:[27]

    25.5% Want to postpone childbearing
    21.3% Cannot afford a baby
    14.1% Has relationship problem or partner does not want pregnancy
    12.2% Too young; parent(s) or other(s) object to pregnancy
    10.8% Having a child will disrupt education or job
    7.9% Want no (more) children
    3.3% Risk to fetal health
    2.8% Risk to maternal health
    2.1% Other

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_the_United_States#Reasons_for_abortions
    EDIT: so the 96 to 97% of abortion is NOT DUE : mom or baby ( fetal health
    maternal health) but irresponsible sex or not a convenient time .
    3.3% Risk to fetal health
    2.8% Risk to maternal health

      Abortion IS the death of human tissue no matter how you look at it – I think we can all agree with that.

      Whether or not you consider it moral to have a voluntary abortion is up to you. People have different viewpoints about where a human’s life technically begins, which is why a broad definition can’t be created for everyone. That is why I am pro-choice.

      Although I don’t agree with having an abortion to “postpone childbearing” for example, I don’t believe I would be in my place to make that moral decision for others, especially since, without a uterus, I won’t experience pregnancy in my lifetime.

    If cell phones don’t work on an airplane (without cell phone boosters) then how…?
    If cell phones don’t work on an airplane then how did 9/11 victims call loved ones with their cell phones?

    I recently watched “Loose Change 2nd Edition”, and there was this scientist guy who tested cell phones up in the air and their success rate during year 2000 to see if he had a signal. Lets just say it failed miserably to call out or accept calls. Then in 2004 (after 9/11) Boeing installed a cell phone booster on top of their airplane so that people could use their cell phones. Why do this if apparently the cell phone calls to family members came in so clearly during the 9/11 tragedy?

    I wanted to find out for my self who was telling the truth. So I turned on my cell phone, and guess what. One the plane that I was on did not crash from having it on (even though I was NOT going to make a call, but just having it ON I swear doesn’t hurt anything, just like I have NEVER turned off my CD or MP3 players ALL M Y LIFE and the plane flies just fine). So when I was on the ground I had all my bars (a good signal). However, once up in the air I has NO signal at all! I didn’t get a bar back till about half a mile up in the air. So unless someone called from their cell phone in the last 15 seconds, I don’t see how they could have had a two minuet conversation with people or an answer machine.

    Now I know big fancy airplanes have phones in the seats, but apparently most of the people didn’t use these phones to call people, they used their own cell phones. Which is Impossible, even a science dude proved that (I doubt it was a miracle either).

    I found “Loose Change” was telling the truth.
    Link to “Loose Change”:

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7167151489146455453&q=Loose+Change+2nd&hl=en

    If you don’t feel like watching the whole thing just fast forward to the time of “1:08:33”.

    Or

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loose_Change_(video)

    By the way there is voice mimicking software that is very accurate just to let people know. I saw that on the Discover Channel about 9 years ago!

    I’m not saying there wasn’t terrorists, I’m just saying the cell phone thing doesn’t make sense. It’s an inconsistency, which may lead one to wonder about other things. My concern is why would someone make up the phone calls, if they can’t/couldn’t happen?

    So how did victims really call their loved ones?

    • Mr Cellophane says:

      Point 1: The airlines request you turn off the cell phones and other electrical devices because it may inter fere with the avionics of the airplane. If you ever looked at the manual of your radio, cell phone, mp3, etc, it says it meets with FCC code ####. That is only if it is working properly, if it isn’t working properly, it can generate a radio signal that can interfer with the avionics of aircraft..

      Point 2: Cell phones work on line of sight transmissions. They talk to relay stations and the newer models try to pick up the strongest frequencies. It works pretty well on land, but in the air there are two many stations to choose from the higher the plane is, it can confuse the cell phone. Flying closer to the ground will reduce the confusion and allow the cell phone to work. The older model cell phones would try to contact more than one tower at a time. One phone call in a plane would tie up have the towers in 200 mile radius. The request to not use the cell phones in a plane was originally from the mobile service providers. Since the cell phones have become digital and resemble computers, the conditions for them to work on a plane has to be very narrow. You might not be able to call your wife, friend, business, but you can still dial 911, but that would not be advisable unless there was a real emergency. You would not like the end results.

I’d had a normal bowle movement the night before at 10:00PM so I questioned the part about be stopped up, but nonetheless, I followed his orders which were to drink an entire bottle of Mg Citrate, take Dulcolax, Cipro 500 mg bid, Flagyl 500 mg tid. A few hours later, I was undeniably in the worst pain of my life, and I am a 38 year old white male who has had a hemroidectomy, wisdom teeth removed and ingrown toe nails removed. I called 911. They took me to the closest hospital which is a fairly large hospital ~4 miles away. I live in an area with a metropolitan population of ~300,000. Everyone in the ER, nurses and doctor alike, seemed to mock me and act as though I was faking the entire night. The doc was quite snide with me. At shift change (7:00AM), they released me. I was feeling only slightly better, probably because of the morphine they’d administered ~7 hours earlier. I saw the doc a total of maybe 5 minutes that night. I could not believe they’d done so little and even seemed to be making fun of me and even torturing me all night. The nurse merely told me to change stool softners (to Colace) and laxative (to Miralax), and they sent me home. I had no ride or anything. Then Sunday night, I was in such intense abdominal pain again that I thought surely I was dying. This time I drove myself to the areas other hospital ER. I got there at 10:00PM. I was taken back at 1:00AM. I was given nearly the same treatment as at the earlier hospital except I was explicitly told by both the nurse and the doc that I was “putting on a show” and to “man it up.” They too told me I was stopped up and gave me an enema (even though I’d had a bowl movement at 7:30PM). When they tried to release me at 7:00am, I threw a fit, and they finally admitted me. Upon admission, I was x-rayed and CT scans were taken w/ and w/o contrast, and I drank GoLYTELY that (Monday) night, and the next (Tuesday) morning, I was giving an upper and lower GI scope. The doc said I had ulcers in my rectum, esophagus and stomach, none bleeding. I DO NOT EVEN HURT IN THESE AREAS!!! I hurt in an ~4″ radius circle around my belly button — everywhere within that circle. I think of the rectum as further down and further dorsal. Also, I think of the esophagus and stomach even as being above the bottom of the sternum. They released me telling me to take 40 mg Nexxium bid (which my insurance will not pay for and is $370!), “GI Cocktail” 40 ml every 8 hrs PRN, dilaudid 2 mg every 6 hrs PRN and compezine 10 mg tid (I HAVE NO NAUSEA!!! I told them this several times at the hospital. I am not taking this.) The doc told me to discontinue the antibiotics, even though the nurse had told me my white blood cell count had climbed to over 18,000. (I have no idea what these numbers mean. I wiki’d WBC and it speaks of numbers on the order of something like 6 billion per liter??? My best guess is that when they say “18,000,” they are either dropping some zeros or stating the content in a smaller volume???)

    I feel the docs are off base with my diagnosis and treatment and also feel that no medical professional will take me seriously. They say things look normal on x-rays and CTs, and that I have a few ulcers that aren’t bleeding in areas that I am not even hurting. As far as I know all but my WBC and Potassium are normal (they had me on KCl bags the whole saty in the hospital, and the nurse said my Poattasium was low.) How do I get the help I so urgently need?

    • Flea says:

      Go see a Gastroenterologist, that’s a doctor who specializes in digestive diseases. Just because you have no pain where the ulcers are does not mean you don’t have them. Usually people have no pain until they start bleeding. With you having a WBC of 18,000 and those ulcers, you probably have peptic ulcer disease. That’s caused by infection. If you cant afford the medication the hospital is giving you, take over the counter medicine. It works just as well. I have ulcers so i should know. If the hospital or doctor gives you medicine, take it. Just because you don’t think you need it. Does not mean you really don’t. That’s probably why there giving you crappy treatment. Is because your going in there telling them basically what medicine you do and don’t want. Hospitals are on the look out for people coming in for medication. So it probably looks to them like you want certain medication. If they gave you bad treatment, make a complaint. But forget the hospital, go to the gastroenterologist. He will help you.

    Spiritually reasoning: Theory of evolution?some explanation and evidence here.Ur thoughts/opinions are welcome?
    the theory of evolution is not related to origin of life(theory of abiogenesis) or the origin of universe(big bang theory, etc)

    Evolution consists of changes in the heritable traits of a population of organisms as successive generations replace one another. It is populations of organisms that evolve, not individual organisms.

    Though changes produced in any one generation are small, differences accumulate with each generation and can, over time, cause substantial changes in the population, a process that can culminate in the emergence of new species.

    do u realize that most of the study of biology is based on and points to and relates to and revolves around evolution in almost EVERY SINGLE TOPIC? every study in biology automatically assumes evolution.
    Some PROOF for u. atleast what i can remember at the moment. If you cant understand what im talking about, please google for them.

    1. the FORMATION OF ORGANIC MOLECULES( like amino acids, etc which are parts of proteins -the building blocks of life and nucleic acids etc.) from inorganic compounds like water and gases is PROVEN. Yes its recreated in the laboratory in 1952.
    its another different theory- Theory of Abiogenesis.read about Miller-Urey experiment http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller-Urey…
    2.study on some species of the galapagos islands.which is being done since many many decades. a species of finch(a bird) has devolped a different beak to cope with change in its prey(insects etc) since the last 50 years.
    3. RECENT EVOLUTION IN HUMANS. the gene responsible for the recent increase in human brain size is identified and its evolution and its effect is proved. i dont remember the name of the gene(numbers and letters). its related to microcephaly.
    other changes are less body hair, increase in height, little toe size etc.
    all documented.
    4.Think about/ read about SICKLE CELL DISEASE and how some blacks are naturally immune to Malaria. their Red Blood Cells changed in structure(to sickle shaped) so the malarial parasite cant enter the cells.
    5.Microbes. this is the easiest subject since they reproduce and multiply very fast. think about ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE in microbes. they evolve to adapt to the conditions. they evolved to breakdown the harmful antibiotics or change their biochemistry to survive.
    6.most of BIOTECHNOLOGY is based on the principle of evolution. innumerable individual facts that i cant fit on this page. methods to create enzymes, vaccines etc etc etc.
    7. all of DOMESTICATION- for example agriculture and cattle. we picked cows that produce more milk and better meat, hide etc and selectively bred for the characteristics we want. all these traits now breed true.(meaning the next generations of the animals consistently have the same characteristics). Consider hybrid plants and animals etc
    8. Consider the different BREEDS OF DOGS. its a perfect example of Selective breeding and micro evolution.
    consider the amazing variety from the weird bulldog, daschund, griffon to hounds etc. they are only considered a seperate breed of dog, if they breed true(same characteristics). ofcourse all dogs are a single species because we group all which can interbreed freely and produce fertile offspring as a single species. ( eventhough there are many animals in which different species can interbreed and give fertile offspring like in many fish, tiger&lion etc.)
    9. think about all the different HUMAN RACES and their colour and physical characteristics. darker colour is because of the need to defend the body from harmful uv radiation / excess heat. as people moved to colder climates, they evolved into lighter colour because of no need for darker skin. thats why whites are a lot more prone to skin conditions like cancers etc.
    10. GENETICS. we share many genes, the EXACT SAME GENES as in all plants and animals.
    humans and chimpanzees – 97% genes identical
    humans and a dog- about 44%
    humans and a daffodil flower- about 14 %
    may seem impossible but fact.
    11. Embryology. its be more appealing and intersting.

    i think thats enough for now.
    Zakir : “do not try to educate others”

    its depressing that u think that way.
    @ flying sp monster
    do u know what ur talking about ? maybe read a little before u make assumptions.

    Molecular evolution is the evolution at the level of DNA RNA etc and mutations in them.

    Micro evolution – changes within a single species- evrything about natural/artificial selection. ex domestication, dogs.

    Macro evolution – change of one species(and higher like genera) to another.
    The HYBRIDS u talk about are some examples of Macro evolution.

    maybe use google and search for evidence of macro evolution ? theres lots of observed and documented evidence.(naturally occuring and artificial like hybrids)

    about human brian – the gene is responsible for the change in size. not storing information.
    http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/309/5741/1717
    http://www.futurepundit.com/archives/001982.html
    and your molecular evolution leads to both micro and macro evolution

    atleast get the facts straight

    •   says:

      I completely accept molecular evolution.

      Macro Evolution, is where pure imagination comes into play with Evolution.

      A Pomeranian and a st. Bernard…are still both Dogs. That’s not a major change. People create hybrids of Donkeys and Horses all the time. People breed wolves and dogs together all the time to create different versions. However, they are limited in the results.

      Agriculture, certainly…we can create new kinds of fruit, of course. This is simply called cross breeding, such as mixing red paint with blue paint to get purple paint.

      However, again, this is not going from a Banana to a Lion. This is macro evolution, which has never been observed, which makes Evolution very much a theory. Macroevolution has NO empirical evidence. None.

      As far as the increase in human brain…I’ve never heard of it, and find nothing on this. And, furthermore, we have never discovered a gene that contains coding for gathering additional information.

      **No. It’s called cross breeding. Not Macroevolution. Completely different. The reason it is different? Evolution is a blind process, cross breeding is done in one generation by humans.

      Evolution is not about changing ‘size’. It’s about changing characteristics, and we have found no gene that supports this theory. There is NO proof that Micro evolution leads to macroevolution…there is only theory, without a capital t.

      You do not know what you are talking about. You get your facts straight, please. I don’t make assumptions.

    Considering the Infinite Monkey Theorem has been proven near improbable, how can a higher power not exist?
    http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-infinite-monkey-theorum.htm

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_monkey_theorem

    it’d take a team of monkeys, (using super computers to calculate the probability), 100 billion billion years to come up with a line of dialog even remotely related to Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”.

    now then, considering our entire Universe was only created in about 5 billion years (a relatively short time compared to other Universes) and yet human life exists…considering how much the odds were beaten and the fact we even live (let alone be more complex than single cell organisms), how can you deny that this is somehow an act of creation on the part of a higher power?

    The mathematics of probability are not on the side of atheists (PS: I’m not a christian) at all, as the fact that this is all here just randomly and by coincidence doesn’t fly mathematically speaking.

    so how can you still believe the way you do?

    • DiesixDie says:

      You’re seriously using the “infinite monkey” analogy to disprove evolution. Really? OK. That scenario contains no feedback mechanism. In evolution, to greatly simplify the picture for you, “survival of the fittest” works to “decide”, statistically, which mutations and variations are favorable which aren’t.

      The system isn’t random. Your “infinite monkeys’ scenario is TOTALLY random. It was never meant to be an illustration of evolution, and it certainly isn’t a proof of it, for or against.

      This question illustrates why people of faith should refrain from attempting to use logic to disprove science. It’s not your strong point. If you have faith, just appreciate your faith for what it is. You’re not going to convince anybody to agree with you, beyond the deluded ones who already agree with you, anyway. Logic is not on your side. It isn’t a tool available to you, and if you try to use it, we’ll see through your attempt.

    America and the state of it’s Prison System?
    I’m writing a short essay on the state of the American prison system. And I would like any of you to give me your thoughts and input. Also, this is by no means the finished product. This is merely a short summary of the sort.
    Anyway, let’s begin.

    Here’s a graph that shows U.S. prisoners per capita during the 20th century, according to Bureau of Justice Statistics.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Incarceration_rate_of_inmates_incarcerated_under_state_and_federal_jurisdiction_per_100,000_population_1925-2008.png

    It basically shows a flat 0.1% of Americans are locked in State and Federal prisons at any given time. Then, in the mid 1970′s the graph takes a sudden “hockey stick” turn upward. Now we have 0.5% of Americans locked up. As far as I can find, that’s more than any other society in the history of the world. Something happened during the Vietnam War and intensified during the Reagan years, continuing until today.

    When there’s a financial incentive for some people to lock up other people, this creates a political climate where prison beneficiaries lobby for more repressive laws. We end up with huge sentences for small amounts of drugs, life sentences for petty theft, de-funding education in poor neighborhoods, moving employment out of the country (or into the prisons), prisons designed to turn out people who are bigger criminals than they were going in, and so on. All these policies predictably result in more incarceration. It’s almost a straightforward piece of engineering.

    If prisons were really meant for “corrections”, we’d see people coming out more decent than they were going in. Or at least, we’d see a few feeble policy attempts to try to accomplish this.

    Proportionately the Americans imprison more than twice as many as South Africans, more than three times as many as the Iranians, and more than six times as many as the Chinese. And this started in 1994 in California, the three strikes you’re out rule. And what it means is, if the first two strikes, the first two crimes you’re convicted of are serious enough, the third one, no matter how trivial, will get a life sentence, twenty five years or more.

    70% of american prisons are private corporations. Consider that almost 80% of the prison population consists of non-violent offenders, many of them weed related, we are not going to see marijuana legalized anytime soon. Legalizing pot would see many empty cells in the future, good for the citizenry, BAD for the business of running a prison whose income is based on filling those cells.

    And lastly a quote from Stephen Fry – “It is illegal to bring into the United States any goods produced by forced labor or by prisoners, yet American prisoners make 100% of the military helmets, ammunition belts, bulletproof vests, ID tags as well some other items used by the US military. Although a prisoner is not technically forced to work, solitary confinement is the punishment for refusal. They also make 93% of domestically produced paints, 36% of home appliances and 21% of office furniture.”

    • thecanadianone says:

      Bravo!! You really seem to have done your homework. Here are a few other things you might wish to include, however:

      1) Racial bias, and the way that the high rate of incarceration has repressed and devastated Native Americans and African-Americans, and in some states, people of Latin-American descent. A huge proportion of some communities have been in prison at one time or another, which feeds into the “cycle of poverty” rather dramatically.

      2) Drug-related incarceration: a surprisingly large proportion of convictions and imprisonments in the USA are for minor drug offences – most especially the safest drug of them all: marjuijuana!! (“weed”). This is a HUGE waste of state resources and the lives of young people – SOOO many people have been railroaded into prison for offences as minor as passing a joint to a narc – this is “distributing” drugs in the paranoid fantasy world of “law enforcement” in the USA!! Also here, you see the huge difference between the number of minority citizens who are put into prison for such trivial reasons/excuses.

      3) Mandatory sentencing and “three strikes” laws. Judges often have their hands tied by “Get tough on crime.”-type laws.

      4) The high incidence of prison rape and other violence. Society may be marginally protected by locking up so many “bad guys” but the prisoners themselves have precious little protection of ANY kind!!! They are often denied medical care which they badly need, educational programs are often of poor quality, and the levels of prison violence and bullying are extremely high. Very seldom does anyone come out of USA prisons a better person for the experience.

      It is a completely unjust system of “justice” in almost all respects – small wonder the USA is the most dangerous country on the planet currently.

    I need to know more about Stevens-Johnson Syndrome!?
    My nephew has been diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I have done a little digging and have the basic gist of the disease but I want to know:
    What is the progression of the illness is?
    If survived, is it a one time illness or something that reoccurs throughout ones life?
    When the cause of it is a medicine reaction, is it something that would appear right away or could you be on the medication for months to years before you showed symptoms?

    Here is the basis gist of the illness:
    Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a life-threatening condition affecting the skin in which cell death causes the epidermis to separate from the dermis. The syndrome is thought to be a hypersensitivity complex affecting the skin and the mucous membranes. Although the majority of cases are idiopathic, the main class of known causes is medications, followed by infections and (rarely) cancers. – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevens-Johnson_syndrome

    give your opinion please?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Dog_f
    In humans, defecation may occur (depending on the individual and the circumstances) from once every two or three days to several times a day. Hardening of the feces may cause prolonged interruption in the routine and is called constipation.

    Human fecal matter varies significantly in appearance, depending on diet and health. Normally it is semisolid, with a mucus coating. Its brown coloration comes from a combination of bile and bilirubin, which comes from dead red blood cells.

    In newborn babies, fecal matter is initially yellow/green after the meconium. This coloration comes from the presence of bile alone. In time, as the body starts expelling bilirubin from dead red blood cells, it acquires its familiar brown appearance, unless the baby is breast feeding, in which case it remains soft, pale yellowish, and not-unpleasantly scented until the baby begins to eat significant amounts of other food.

    Throughout the life of an ordinary human, one may experience many types of feces. A “green” stool is from rapid transit of feces through the intestines (or the consumption of certain blue or green food dyes in quantity), and “clay-like” appearance to the feces is the result of a lack of bilirubin.

    Bile overload is very rare, and not a health threat. Problems as simple as serious diarrhea can cause blood in one’s stool. Black stools caused by blood usually indicate a problem in the intestines (the black is digested blood), whereas red streaks of blood in stool are usually caused by bleeding in the rectum or anus.

    Food may sometimes make an appearance in the feces. Common undigested foods found in human feces are seeds, nuts, corn and beans, mainly because of their high dietary fiber content. Beets may turn feces different hues of red. Artificial food coloring in some processed foods such as highly colorful packaged breakfast cereals can also cause unusual feces coloring if eaten in sufficient quantities.

    Laboratory examination of feces, usually termed as stool examination, is done for the sake of diagnosis, for example, to detect presence of parasites and/or their eggs (ova) or to detect disease spreading bacteria.

    Antarctica, Planets and Natural Selection?
    So what I want to know is, why do scientists say life can’t exist on other planets that are extremely inhospitable to Earth life? If the theory of natural selection is indeed true then shouldn’t it be possible for some microscopic life form (such as those that were once on Mars and may still be) to evolve and through natural selection adapt to any planet’s climate. As far as I know there is life on Earth (really really really tiny stuff) that does not need sunlight or needs close to zero sunlight to survive. Some life as far as I know does not need oxygen either, so if this is possible in our own backyard than who’s to say it can’t happen anywhere else. If scientists say all life on Earth originated from a single cell than who’s to say that a single cell living in an acid ocean or a cave with zero sunlight or a single cell floating around in a gasses can’t adapt and evolve to a state that is intelligent?

    Well to support what I said, I will also point out that Venus once had a similar climate to Earth correct? I know due to solar winds it lost it’s important elements such as oxygen and the oceans eventually boiled off into water vapor due to it having no magnetic shield to protect it at least according to this article
    http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Venus_was_once_more_Earth-like_than_previously_thought
    but let’s say that within it’s first half a billion years-a billions years in it’s Earth like state a single cell came to be, then it evolved and adapted to the changing climate since it was given enough time to do so, making the once Earth climate compatible life form change to a now Venus climate compatible life form. I know this didn’t really happen on Venus but there are millions of planets out there and let’s say this happened on one of them, than scientists would be wrong about life ‘needing’ certain things to survive, which I PERSONALLY think they are.

    Here’s another thing to think about but I’m not 100% if it’s right, it’s just an assumption. If you look at Antarctica, a once tropical place but now frigid wasteland, then you start to wonder; if life adapted from a tropical place to the complete opposite climate within a few hundred million years than why couldn’t a lifeforms do it on another planet. This is assuming penguins adapted and evolved from a once tropical bird but over that long time period became penguins which is an assumption by me since I haven’t found any evidence on it. I think it would make sense but anyways. If life could adapt from a temperate to freezing climate than who’s to say it couldn’t do it from a temperate to burning climate or a temperate to a climate without an atmosphere if given enough time. A life form could adapt and evolve a way to get energy from the sun like trees do and not need anything else like food or anything but only need solar energy, and if a planet had no atmosphere than there would be plenty of it, and assuming that the planet had an orbit around a star similar to the way the moon orbits the Earth (only one side faces the Earth not the other, I forgot the word for it lol) than there would be no night time on that side making the life form get unlimited solar energy. If given enough time it could even adapt a pressurized body similar to the way we pressurize our space shuttles in space, afterall life is much more complex than technology will ever be so I would think if given enough time that at least one life form would be able to adapt and than that one would go through natural selection increasing biodiversity and than BOOM you have a planet full of life with no atmosphere or freezing/burning temperatures with no water whatsoever!

    Now I may sound stupid but it’s a question after all and you can’t learn if you don’t ask so if you can let me know where I said something that is impossible let me know so I can learn a thing or two lmao.
    As for the guy who was saying flee to Allah…I am a Christian ok not a Muslim, no offense there but the only reason I asked this question is to kind of say, “what are scientist being so stubborn for?” I believe in natural selection since it has happened to a butterfly species in my own lifetime, the thing I don’t believe in fully is evolution. I think it’s a good idea but it has it’s flaws and needs to be revised which is why I posted this question as well. If evolution is true, I believe God (I call him God not Allah since I’m a Christian so don’t spaz at me for that) used it as a way to keep life growing. The universe needed a creator or else where did everything start but in no sense did God have to maintain it. I believe he is watching over us now but I think he started a cycle or a chain reaction that he new would trigger life, after this Earth came and all that which he indeed created since he started the reaction and than created people himself just like he said.

    • aBitRusty says:

      any scientist that says ‘life can’t exist on other planets that are extremely inhospitable to Earth life’ would not be a real scientist.

      life does exist in very inhospitable places, even on our earth.
      certain microbes live in the dark, underwater, near volcanic vents, depending on sulfur. it is also possible that similar microbes indeed do exist on venus – no one ruled it out, just as it hasn’t been ruled out nothing lives on mars.

      There is such a thing as favorable conditions though which make the development of life from less likely (did not say impossible) to more likely. One of these factors is indeed sunlight – UV light helps triggering mutations which are necessary when wanting to evolve from a microbe into something more complex and moderate temperatures.
      mutations, adaptations and changes are less likely to occur in a stale environment and so these are less likely to produce (intelligent) life
      Our hydrothermal sulfur loving organism most likely had little cause to change and adapt because its environment hasn’t changed. The more external factors : sun, weather, atmosphere, reasonable temperatures, a magnetic field, the better.

      for this reason, because it seems more favorable – the search for life is narrowed a bit by looking for planets similar to earth – but i doubt any self respecting exobiologist would rule out life anywhere simply because it doesnt look like earth.

    Religious Views About Stem Cell Research?
    Im an atheist, and have no ethical oppositions to things like stem cell research. Im beginning to wonder why many religious people have issues with stem cell research. Recently my brother was in a horse riding accident, he broke his spine and is now paraplegic for life. I was discussing with his doctor about any chances of him regaining the use of his legs (riding is his life and he’s devastated), and the doctor mentioned that in the future, stem cell research could find a cure, if studies were recieving less opposition.

    i asked him where most of the oppositions comes from, and he said that mostly it was from religious (esp. christian) people.

    I dont mean to cause any offense, but i think its a little selfish that they impose and enforce their beliefs to the point where they destroy someones lively hood (as i feel has been done to my brother). i feel that such beliefs are holding back medical science.

    as seen in this photo are ways that stem cells could be used to cure illness/injury in the future: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stem_cell_treatments.svg

    what are your opinions on this??

    thanks everybody!!! just wanted to say that i dont mean to cause any offense!!!

    • Rosco says:

      I’m an atheist too and I actively argue against religion – why? Because it holds back human progress (esp scientific progress) like stem cell research and evolution.

      I never used to be against religion but as I get older I just become more disproving of it and it’s backwards, selfish system of beliefs all based on no evidence.

      Religious people oppose stem cells because a majority of them call from embryonic cells (i.e. fertilised human eggs – potential babies). Adults have stem cells but in far lower concentrations. Human embryos are nothing more than some cells and if they can help actual living breathing humans have an improved quality of life then they should.

    Are Red Blood Cells alive?
    This is a seemingly innocuous question, and the most obvious answer when asked casually would usually be yes. However, Red Blood Cells lack a nucleus and thus can not reproduce by themselves. New RBC’s are created in the stem cells and not via some obscure form of binary fission nor mitosis (the lack of nucleus, well, prevents the reproduction of the nucleus…).

    Now the biologically standard definition of life is defined as having all of the following conditions classified under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life#Biology

    However, number 7 on the list asserts that cells must have the property of “Reproduction: The ability to produce new individual organisms, either asexually from a single parent organism, or sexually from two parent organisms.”

    Red blood cells lack the ability to reproduce; so by technicality, shouldn’t they be classified as non-living? Is there some sort of a complexity level for this classification?

    • Meep says:

      There’s not really a clear cut distinction to this. I would say it is a metabolically active part of a living organism, so it falls under the category of “alive”. (Is a chloroplast alive?) It’s like asking whether or not a virus is alive. It does not have a life of its own, but when in combination with other cells, carries out its metabolic function. Its a gray area.

      Even human cells that reproduce on their own within our body, don’t really lead to new organisms, just differentiated human cells. Multi-cellular organisms are complex, and I would hesitate to try to label its parts as alive or not, though I would consider any cells in the human body “alive” if they actively make proteins and carry out reactions.

  28. No Chance Without Evolution ;) says:

    [Gonna be long] Whake make people think Evolution = Atheistic “whole-sale” Science?
    I usually see questions like “How do evolution explains…”, “How can evolution be true if…”, “If evolution is true then why/what/how…”:
    1/ “Where did matters come from?”, this is astronomy, huh? And if evo and astro, despite the fact that sharing an O in its name, can’t explain this, it fails, muahahaha
    “Evolutionists claim that at the beginning (Big Bang) the laws did not apply… …”
    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071009152527AAsMol3

    2/ “How the universe was created” You’re asking book sellers how papers are made, some may know, and of course papers come before their products, but that’s not their profession and they are definitely not the right ones to ask, right?

    3/ “Noah ark was found”, not to mention it wasn’t seaworthy, first off this has nothing to do with evolution, because though the flood story was old, evolution is much older. In order for s.o to believe in the ark story, he must accept evolution, and a SUPER FAST one, so fast that it was almost impossible
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mPPnN1c0jk

    4/”The possibility of a cell to spontaneously formed is “, basicly, ppl are confusing evolution with abiogenesis. Though these numbers are fake, I’d just say such great number is applied only for a completed cell of a highly evolved organism (with long as f*ck DNAs that twisted into chromosomes, nucleolus, cystoplasm, Golgi complex…) , the 1st cell was much much simplier (one thin loose membrane and some monomes inside) and much easier to form than that.
    5/And if noticed, just an hour ago a guy asked about erosion

    The fricking definitions of evolution:
    change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by such processes as mutation, natural selection, and genetic drift.
    Wiki:In biology, evolution is the change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms through successive generations. When a population splits into smaller groups, these groups evolve independently and develop into new species. …
    http://www.Thefreedictionary.com:
    _ A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form.
    _ (Biology)Change in the genetic composition of a population during successive generations, as a result of natural selection acting on the genetic variation among individuals, and resulting in the development of new species.

    No where on Earth do scientists claim there are such thing as “evolutionists” or that they can explain anything right now, so using questionable things to disprove evolution is invalid.
    To make this simple: evolution does NOT care how the first cell came to existence, it just care what does it have in hand and how it can make the most out of each. Imagine you’re on an assembly line in the factory of life, will ppl say you fail on your job because you don’t know the worker made the materials you process on? I think no.

    Evolution does NOT responsible for:
    _The formation of the universe, it’s cosmology
    _The formation of the 1st cell, it’s abiogenesis
    _The so-called miracles.
    _Laws of nature, let the physicists take care of them.
    _Myth creatures like Lochness, unicorn or crocoduck…
    _The shape of landforms, it’s geography’s job. Conditions in habitats affact a species’s trend to evolve, but biologists don’t have to be experts trên how or why the world just cracked up in pieces, ok?
    _The accuracy of fossil dating, it’s geology, paleontology, or whatever
    _The confict between it and any religion or myth, because faiths can’t disprove evidences.

    Many others. In short, evolution is purely BIOLOGICAL, not anti-Christ, not satanic, not ultimate, not whatever crazy stuff else, it’s NOT WHOLESALE ATHEISTIC SCIENCE!
    P/s: a theory is SCIENCE must be proof-based, so though being a theory, evolution is much of a fact.
    So, creationism really does NOT DESERVE to be called a theory, not to mention the truth ;)
    Typo What, my bad
    @eric: simple: why ppl misunderstands evolution, can’t you read?

    • Mickey says:

      Fundamentalist churches teach that evolution is a religion and that both evolution and the Big Bang were invented to allow atheists not to believe in god. Then they invent all sorts of ridiculous “facts” about both in an effort to convince the flock how wrong it is.

    What do you think of this Quote by Dario Fo (The Winner of the Noble Prize in 1997) about KURDISTAN?
    This is a remarkable piece of prose by Dario Fo, which he actually wrote quite recently and submitted to the Turkish press :

    “Kurdistan lives. It burns in the mind of every single person of the 35 million people who were robbed of their identity and made into refugees in Turkey, Iraq and Europe. It is burning and living in the fires of Newroz and in jails where 12,000 political prisoners are buried in isolation cells. It lives in the memory of those who disappeared and in the scars of those who disappeared and in the scars of those who were tortured. It is burning and living in the mountains of the popular resistance, called terrorism by the western world.”

    Christians; isn’t theistic evolution a total oxymoron?
    Oxymoron meaning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxymoron)

    Abiogenesis “Theories” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis)

    Darwin’s “Origin of Species” clearly stated that the motive behind his work was to have an alternate view of the origins of life without a “god”. He clearly states that, for his “theory” to be true, that cells would have to be infinitely complex AND that the fossil records clearly must be TEEMING with transitional fossils.

    It seems that you could argue that some Christians, in order to graft into Christianity some of the early observations from science, coined the term “theistic evolution” to try to appease their own conscience and satisfy some the attacks from the scientific community.

    Now that we clearly demonstrate that cells are not “simple things easily manipulated through mutation and natural selection”. They are complex with pre-assembled code called DNA to lock the respective species in a stable range.

    The fossil record is anything but teeming with transitional fossils. And when compared to Darwin’s expectations, the fossil records are a dismal failure to say the least.

    Since at the heart of Christian Theology is the instant creation of man with a body, soul, and spirit, and that original sin and the whole redemption story hinging upon the literalness of man’s special creation by God, isn’t “theistic evolution” simply bad theology produced by a knee jerk reaction?
    It is so funny to watch the evolutionist try to skirt the issue of first cells, and dish that off into another branch of biology.
    Man does share about 96% of the DNA to that of another species, which equates to 140,000,000 differences! We share 50% of the DNA of a banana too….hum.
    Five total roadblocks of evolution;

    1. The Big Bang
    2. Formation of the Galaxies
    3. Water source on earth
    4. Abiogenesis
    5. DNA, the LOCK God put into species.

    Throw in the Anthropic principles is evolution as a means of answering man’s origins is a total dead horse.
    It seems to me that, if the Apostle Paul was truly Spirit led in his writings about Adam & Eve, then he would have somehow addressed “theistic evolution”.

    With the bee colony’s disappearing would you give up cell phones to solve the problem?
    Bee colony’s all over the world are disappearing at an alarming rate. The condition is called “colony collapse disorder”

    “The beekeepers’ warnings had some heavyweight expert support. A pamphlet distributed by the National Union of French Agriculture quoted Albert Einstein. “If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live,” Einstein was quoted as saying. “No more bees, no more pollination … no more men!” [From Paul Ames's report for the Associated Press, "Life's Not So Sweet for Europe's Embattled Beekeepers," 24 January 1994.]

    Sounds like the Bees might get us before the global climate change. But we’ll only find out when it’s too late.

  32. Ash D says:

    Is it true that there is a chance to live for more than the average living age.?
    “Advocates of human life extension promote the idea of lengthening the telomeres in certain cells through temporary activation of telomerase (by drugs), or possibly permanently by gene therapy. They reason that this would extend human life. So far these ideas have not been proven in humans.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telomere)

    • onlymatch4u says:

      Yes it is possible to live naturally between 120 and 140 years old as we were designed to do. That Telomere technology is just more “scientific” gobbly gook that sounds impressive, but cancer has already solved that problem. Cancer cells do not lose small bits of the telemere ends when the cell divides and essentially, cancer cells can live forever. We already know how to extend our lives 30 to 35 years with better digestion and remethylation of cells. You can do that with a potassium activator in combination with once living source of Betaine HCL, taking that after each meal.

      Don’t worry, the genetic engineering that is being done will most likely offset any successes in telomere technology advances and the way our food supply and agriculture is being done today will more than destroy any hopes of long life.

      Change the basic way food is being grown and processed and you will be much farther along in extending our lives. Take the job of food processing away from large corporations and put big bags of money into improving our organic farming techniques and that will net much better results.

      Right now, we rank 45th in the world in terms of longevity. 44 countries have people living longer than Americans. And the baby boom distorted the longevity figures so it looks like we are living longer, but reality is what it is. The sperm count is going down each year and it is now predicted that by the year 2050, we will not have any sperm left in the human race. That should be a “stimulus” package and discussed, but no one wants to face the horrible facts that PROFIT is being held way above health in the food, agricultural, and medical industries in America today. And for us to even think our government can provide health care! What a huge joke.

      good luck to you

    election ’08-who are you voting for?
    just a few thoughts I’d like to share on why I’d really like you to consider voting Democratic (if you aren’t already) this coming November.

    The Pros

    Joe Biden;
    Elected to Senate in early 1972,he lost his wife and infant daughter in an accident on Dec.18 of that same year while they were returning home from Christmas shopping. His two sons were involved in the crash as well but eventually made full recoveries.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Biden has a bunch of further info on him-it’s worth a look-see.

    Barack Obama;
    In good standing with other countries. Please people, we don’t need four more years of the same.He deserves a chance. This is an opportunity to make right all the injustices(Martin Luther King Jr., Medger Evers, John Lennon…)

    Sarah Palin;
    The people from Alaska had to be COACHED on how to answer questions about her. She has held strong to HER OWN agenda much like a bull in a china shop and would more than likely compose herself the same way when dealing with other countries-BAD POLICY. She wants to control office but can not even control her own teenage daughter whom is pregnant at the tender age of 17 and is unmarried-do we REALLY want to send the message that we will continue to accept this behavior from children?! Her youngest child suffers from Trisomy 21 and will need more intensive care-who is going to provide that? Perhaps her DUI charged husband?! I think this woman has clearly bit off more than she can chew and really should re-access her life.

    John McCain;
    Held captive as a POW for 7 years-35 YEARS AGO!!! Computers, blackberry’s,MP3 players, even cell phones are all to hi-tech for this 72 year old man.Harbors war mongering ideals and is strictly “right to life”-regardless of how the woman feels and/or circumstances. His wife’s outfit for the Republician Campaign was over 280,000 dollars, what kind of real people is this woman in touch with?!

    • P says:

      GREAT QUESTION! YOU ARE BRILLIANT! And your points are just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more. People should really investigate the facts and not just trust the fear-mongers. Each of these four people tell us the most by how they live their lives. Biden chose family first. Obama thinks first before acting and is willing to go out among the people and actually ask what they think, instead of telling them what they think. Palin can’t control her own family, yet abuses her political office to manipulate what she can’t control. She operates in fear like a dictator (Hitler, Stalin, etc.) She childishly makes up lies about terrorism and then laughs when hecklers among her few supporters threaten treason. McCain picks a female to be VP at the last moment just to create havoc and conveniently forgets that he almost went to jail for Keating 5 and is buddies with Gordon Liddy. He consistently shows that he makes very bad choices, just like Bush. So no, we don’t need four or even eight more years of that. We need a President and Vice President of substance. Two individuals who will do the best for America and the world because they do the best for themselves and their families. Individuals who demonstrate intelligence first, class, grace, compassion, courage, strength, responsible spending and good stewardship. Both Obama and Biden clearly love their families, something not present in the McCains, Bushes or Palins–they use their families to get elected.

  34. Frank Turner says:

    Racism is human nature so why is it illegal?
    Hear me out.

    Just like a cat and a dog aren’t biologically supposed to get along they instinctively still see each other as a threat, but I don’t see the cops arresting the local dog if it sets about a cat. However, put them together long enough and they will get along, just like white and black kids in school happily play together – because they have become accustomed to that way of living.

    It is our INSTINCT to react and feel threatened towards something we are unsure of, when we feel threatened we either run or fight, depending on personality and intuition. You can’t change someone’s personality nor can you alter their intuition.

    We ALL came from the same single cell that formed life on this earth, from the smallest ant to the elephant,

    Each and every creature on this earth is territorial, and it’s as simple as this: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_do_red_ants_and_black_ants_fight So is it racist that these 2 types of ants fight?

    It all comes down to the same thing they are protecting what they think is theirs, and humans do the very same thing because like I stated before, it is intuition and territorial.

    When a human is racist it may seem uncalled for but deep in their intuition it’s not, they are defending what they THINK is theirs, take for example an English man has an Asian man move in next door, his primitive instinct is to question what is going on and defend what he THINKS is his and become defensive when feel threatened, because maybe he hasn’t been exposed to this type of ‘invasion’ before. Just like when we catch a disease we have never had before, our white blood cells fight the foreign body that has entered our system.
    It’s the same god damn thing happening everywhere and with every creature on this earth so why should humans be any different? Don’t tell me “it hurts our feelings” because I’m pretty sure when the red ants and black ants fight the defeated ant was pretty butt hurt too.

    I am not condoning anything just stating a simple fact which you should all stop and think about. You can’t change human nature, so slap any law you like on it, you may have some people living in fear of it but mark my words it doesn’t take away their biological instincts, you may also have people accustomed to this way of living already, that doesn’t mean to say their predecessors were. It’s almost like a conflict of personalities.

    You can’t change nature by laws, because nature is in charge of each and everyone of us.
    We was born from this earth, and we will end up back in side it.

    -Peace.
    @MK6, Why? Because we talk and walk? Like I said we came from the very same cell, we may think we are advanced but how do you know a chameleon doesn’t think the same thing when it’s changing colours?

    @Mike, Just because you ‘aren’t racist’ doesn’t mean you have never defended something that’s yours or what you may think is yours.
    (You may notice I use ‘think’ alot that is because nothing on this earth is actually ours)

    @Jason, It maybe illegal and it may not seem right to alot of people but there is people out there that think it’s right just like tribes sacrifice and rape in honour of a ‘god’
    @Unknown_ That is true but it is still in our genetic make up.
    @court They don’t like what they are smelling just like humans don’t like what they are seeing, no we may not go and kill each other over that very reason but it’s still in us to react on it, just like the ants do.
    @court (again) you’re doing exactly what I’m explaining, you are trying to offend me with the whole ‘I’ve never been to biology class’ which is true, I’m more into astrology and physics than biology) but back to the point you feel threatened and therefore insulted me in a form of defence.
    @court (for the last time) “We have no instincts” so how the hell do we know when we are in danger or not? What’s that gut feeling you get when you know something is wrong? SOME of us have it more prominent than others, but it doesn’t mean to say we don’t have it.
    And the word “Racism” is a name that the government made for this ‘behaviour’. It’s a name NOT what it is, it is just a name, but look beyond the name and you will see exactly what I am talking about.
    We didn’t just become this way over night, it’s been inside us to fight, since the first creature was bought about this earth.

    • David says:

      Racism is not human nature. It had to be developed as an ideology to justify slavery in the 16th and 17th century’s. The ancient romans kept slaves but they didn’t feel the need to distinguish between colour ( a black person could become emperor in Rome). But in the 16th and 17th centuries people began to question slavery so an ideology had to be created that said that people of a different colour were inferior, that people in Africa in particular had to be civilized and that it was the,’white mans burden’ to civilize them and that they were better off as slaves because they were little more than children. Of course companies and countries made huge amounts of money out of this.

      In reality there is more genetic variation in humans of the same skin colour than there is between skin colour, scientifically it makes as little difference as eye colour.

    Are the ‘alien’ cells found in the red rain in Kerala from 2001 a threat to the environment?
    In 2001 there was red rain over Kerala (India), the rain carried ‘dust’ particles from an exploded meteorite. Scientists are investigating these dust particles and they contain some form of life. They contain cells that keep reproducing even when superheated to 300°C (beyond 125°C life can not exist to our knowledge). However, one of the articles mentions tests that have been done on the cells in a specific type of oil and to my knowledge it is unclear wether the cells only reproduce in the oil or everywhere, no matter what the conditions are (most articles seem to indicate the latter). If the latter is true and we take into account that about 50,000 kilograms of these particles have rained down on Kerala… It seems that we have a catastrophic worldwide environmental problem, 50,000 kilograms of alien particles with reproducing cells that don’t seem to decay. None of the articles mention anything about the possible dangers.

    Biologists cant tell us what species or phylum or life is thus they talk meaningless nonsense -What u think?
    The Australian philosopher colin leslie dean has shown biologists talk meaningless nonsense when they talk about life species and speciation as they cannot even tell us what species and phylum are . They also cannot tell us what life is Thus according to colin leslie dean biology is a bunch of meaningless nonsense

    http://gamahucherpress.yellowgum.com/books/philosophy/Natural_selection.pdf

    Now scientists cannot tell us what a species or phylum is

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Species
    “However, the exact definition of the term “species” is still controversial, particularly in prokaryotes,[2] and this is called the species problem.[3″

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phylum

    “Although a phylum is often spoken of as if it were a hard and fast entity, no satisfactory definition of a phylum exists”

    With out a definition of these terms then biologists are really talking nonsense for with out definitions to locate and identify the things they talk about they are really not talking about anything at all If the biologist talks about say speciation or this species proving natural selection but cant tell you what a species or phylum is then he is talking meaningless nonsense. He could as easily said certain gibbles prove natural selection but with out knowing what a gibble is the claim is meaningless

    Now biology is the study of life but it terns out Biologists cant tell us what life IS
    The can tell us what life DOES
    ie

    Homeostasis: Regulation of the internal environment to maintain a constant state; for example, electrolyte concentration or sweating to reduce temperature.
    # Organization: Being structurally composed of one or more cells, which are the basic units of life.
    # Metabolism: Transformation of energy by converting chemicals and energy into cellular components (anabolism) and decomposing organic matter (catabolism). Living things require energy to maintain internal organization (homeostasis) and to produce the other
    ertc
    etc
    but when it comes to telling us what life IS -we find they have no idea

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life

    “Life is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have self-sustaining biological processes (“alive,” “living”), from those which do not”

    this is a blantaly circular definition all it says is life is a characteristic of things that are alive ie have life and as such totally meaningless

    now even apart from not telling us what it is that gives life to an organism scientist cant even agree on their definition of life

    “To define life in unequivocal terms is still a challenge for scientists”

      Physicists cannot draw an exact dividing line at wavelengths between red light, green light, and blue light (the light just becomes less red and more green, until it is entirely green).
      Does that mean those colours of light don’t exist? No – but they are artificial distinctions we impose of natural phenomena.

      Similarly, physicist cannot really describe what electromagnetic radiation *is*: photons seem to be both wave and particle, which makes no sense. But just because they cannot describe it in detail doesn’t mean they can’t study it.

    so here it is, instead of powering a space craft by rocket fuel, or oil, why not by multiple resources, like solar energy when your in a solor system? or a Plant or stars Electro Magnetic energy? I know Nikola Tesia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla)who was competing with Edison for weighs to harness energy and use it? it was a technological war really.

    there also has been a break through in magnetic microchips imagine that nano sized and put in a nano robot,
    if there was a way to magnetize gold we would be all set the greatest conductor of energy if not mistake great for wiring and or a motherboard possibly? why not a biological cell organism computer that runs the ship, we just reprogram it like they talk about with t cells?

    it could recycle oxygen for the user of the suit maybe?

    you could possibly have nano size camera in the outer haul of the space craft or the suits view finder?

    p.s straight from my imagination, but a positively charged magnetized suit would be positive, and so would the in shell of the craft would also be positively magnetized so create a floating effect?

    is any of this possible?

      Your problem with all these ideas is a value called “delta v” which represents the velocity needed to escape Earth’s gravity. So far humans have only been able to use chemical energy to create enough thrust to achieve this amazing feat.

      Then after this is achieved comes the problem of human consumables and while a lot of good ideas have been raised the amount of consumables needed still means we will be stuck raising them off the ground to keep humans operating in space or you would need an immense structure to supply all the needs to a human who would live in space.

      To propel a craft and humans in space takes little energy, solar cells and an ion engine would work well BUT you have to get it all there in the first place.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Dog_feces.jpg
    In humans, defecation may occur (depending on the individual and the circumstances) from once every two or three days to several times a day. Hardening of the feces may cause prolonged interruption in the routine and is called constipation.

    Human fecal matter varies significantly in appearance, depending on diet and health. Normally it is semisolid, with a mucus coating. Its brown coloration comes from a combination of bile and bilirubin, which comes from dead red blood cells.

    In newborn babies, fecal matter is initially yellow/green after the meconium. This coloration comes from the presence of bile alone. In time, as the body starts expelling bilirubin from dead red blood cells, it acquires its familiar brown appearance, unless the baby is breast feeding, in which case it remains soft, pale yellowish, and not-unpleasantly scented until the baby begins to eat significant amounts of other food.

    Throughout the life of an ordinary human, one may experience many types of feces. A “green” stool is from rapid transit of feces through the intestines (or the consumption of certain blue or green food dyes in quantity), and “clay-like” appearance to the feces is the result of a lack of bilirubin.

    Bile overload is very rare, and not a health threat. Problems as simple as serious diarrhea can cause blood in one’s stool. Black stools caused by blood usually indicate a problem in the intestines (the black is digested blood), whereas red streaks of blood in stool are usually caused by bleeding in the rectum or anus.

    Food may sometimes make an appearance in the feces. Common undigested foods found in human feces are seeds, nuts, corn and beans, mainly because of their high dietary fiber content. Beets may turn feces different hues of red. Artificial food coloring in some processed foods such as highly colorful packaged breakfast cereals can also cause unusual feces coloring if eaten in sufficient quantities.

    Laboratory examination of feces, usually termed as stool examination, is done for the sake of diagnosis, for example, to detect presence of parasites and/or their eggs (ova) or to detect disease spreading bacteria.

    My cat has jaundice and I’m waiting for test results, what is most likely?
    My cat has been throwing up and acting weird lately. I took him to the vet this morning and was told he has jaundice, which could be a symptom of a huge variety of diseases ranging from a parasite that could be treated with antibiotics to pancreatic cancer which the vet said, and I quote, “is not compatible with life.”

    I’m so upset right now, none of the possible diagnoses are really good and I can’t really afford much treatment, already the tests and the exams cost me almost $300. My cat is one year and one month old, he was tested for FIV and feline leukemia as a kitten but the vet said he could have since gotten it (he’s an indoor cat but he has “play dates” with indoor/outdoor cats) or it could have been a false positive.

    I just want to know if your cat has had jaundice and what the diagnosis turned out to be. I hear back tomorrow. Here are some of the possibilities the vet said:

    hepatitis or other liver related disorder
    pancreatic cancer
    FIV (feline AIDS)
    FIP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_infectious_peritonitis)
    Feline leukemia
    parasites/other virus
    something about his white/red blood cells (I was so upset at this point it was hard to listen to the vet)

    What do you think is most likely?
    I meant the vet said the NEGATIVE results from is FIV test as a kitten could have been a false negative. Sorry.

      What ever the label is that’s put on this disease, You’ve got a wonderful little friend to care for and give the best life possible. Don’t let anyone guilt trip you into spending a fortune on a lost cause. Do what you can. love the kitten to the end. hold him her gently and tell him what a good cat he is. How happy he has made you. Thank him for his love and devotion then make a decision in love as to what is the best thing for you and for him. He loves you and trusts you. He knows you want to spare him pain. He would gladly give his life for you. Make the decision that allows you both the best outcome possible.

    anyone good with 9th grade BIOLOGY?
    i have my first quiz on stuff i learned my first week of school and i am SUPER scared! i take good notes and studied a lot but im afraid i missed something. im gonna go in early tomorrow to review stuff with my teacher but i wanna go in prepared so he doesnt think im retarded…

    okay so some questions are.. (oh and please answer them with easy words and such.. no like science-y einstein definitions that you find on wiki…)

    were learning about like life.. the 6 characteristics of life, herbivored, etc etc

    1)i really do not understand how photosynthesis works, and i think its really important

    2)i dont understand what it means to be a producer and consumer, how are they different or alike?

    3)in the 6 characteristics of life, its reproduction, organization, homeostasis, growth&development, self initiated movement, and using energy. i am really confused on what organization is.. i know it has something to do with cells but its confusing. and how can i make “using energy” a more descriptive one? and im also confused about homeostasis, i *think* its about keeping your balance, like if your running alot you can lower your body temp…

    if you could please help me understand this for tomorrows quiz i would appreciate it lots! i choose best answer also :)
    gchv gukgjkgh, that didnt help at all.. im not a dumb a.ss im just triying to get as much help as i can for my first quiz on school tomorrow…?

    • Joe Doza says:

      First off, don’t stress too much :) If you prepare yourself mentally, then you’ll do much better (positive attitude!)

      So to answer your questions:

      1) I’m not sure what about photosynthesis you don’t understand so I’ll tell you the main purpose. The plant takes sunlight and makes it’s own energy, in the form of a sugar, glucose. It also needs carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and turns that into oxygen! This is important because cars, smokestacks, and even when we breath, all give off CO2. To make a long story short, CO2 traps heat in our atmosphere and the plants’ job is to remove CO2.

      2) So if think about what each of the words sounds like, you can figure this out easily. Basically, a producer “produces” or makes something and a consumer “consumes” or eats something. If we look at question 1, we know that plants “produce” their own energy through photosynthesis, while animals cannot. So this means a producer is anything that can make it’s own energy or food source and a consumer is anything that eats producers (cows, horses, you, me, etc.).

      3) So for organization, think about how organisms develop from one cell (i.e. conception). From one cell, comes two, then four, and eventually more specialized cells form that perform specific tasks. Thus organization is how a few cells arrange themselves into a more complex organism.
      I’m not sure what you mean about making using energy more descriptive, but it’s as simple as it sounds. We consume food to get energy.
      You are correct about homeostasis. It’s all about balance. If you get hot, you will sweat. It’s the body’s job to keep this balance, or else you will get sick or die.

      Good luck on your quiz and remember that having confidence, even if you don’t think you’re ready, can help a bunch!

      I hope this helps :)

    Is there any new research or a cure likely soon for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) please?
    Professor Stephen Hawking http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Hawking ,
    has had this degenerative disease – seemingly for a very long time, yet leads a life that I’d think would exhaust most ‘ablebodied’ people – is it going to kill him or will he infact probably just die of old age, i.e. is it ALWAYS a degenerative diease or like cancer, can it go into remission?

    Has his life been extended because he’s financially able, or I would have thought financially able, to afford medicine that can keep at bay the degenerative aspects of this disease?

    By the way, is it classed as a disease or a disorder and what constitutes a disorder rather than a disease anyway please?

    Is there any likelyhood, that ‘stem-cell’ research may be the panacia for this debilitating and dignity robbing ailment sometime soon?

    Could Dinosaurs Be Brought Back To Life?
    I was reading in the some news articles http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2005/03/050325100541.htm that dinosaur tissue was found. Animals have been cloned from cells http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolly_%28sheep%29. So theoretically, could something older, if DNA was found for them, could they be cloned? Let’s leave out religion here. From Scientific viewpoint, is it possible

    • Clay C says:

      It seems that DNA is too fragile to survive for the millions of years since the time of the dinosaurs. Paleontologists have found soft organic tissue inside a T-rex leg bone and did recover some proteins from it, enough to analyze and show that T-rex was related to modern birds. But they didn’t find DNA.

      What can be done, though, is “reverse engineering” on modern birds to make them show the characteristics of the dinosaurs that were their ancestors. There was a show about this on the science channel and a book by Jack Horner. It works this way: all animals have a lot of genes that are not actively turned on, but are carried in the cells as dormant. These dormant gene groups are left – overs from earlier ancestors. Horner says we should be able to take an Ostrich and by chemical means activate those old dinosaur genes and make it grow teeth, a long tail and turn the wings into arms. Keep a look out for this. He is working on it and predicts that he can show results in a few years.

    Fundies: How do you feel about the Miller-Urey experiment and the findings of Joan Oró Florensa?
    The Miller-Urey experiment simulated an older earth which had much more greenhouse gases than we have now. The experiment included water (H2O), methane (CH4), ammonia (NH3) and hydrogen (H2). An electrical current (lightning) was introduced to water (ocean) creating 13 of the 22 amino acids that are used to make proteins in living cells. This clearly shows that hypothetical processes from a long time ago could create the building blocks of life without life needing to synthesise it.

    Joan Oró found that amino acids could also be made from hydrogen cyanide (HCN) and ammonia in a water solution. His experiment also produced a large amount of the nucleotide base adenine which is one of the four bases in RNA (Ribonucleic Acid) and DNA(Deoxyribonucleic acid) Acid. Adenine is also an important part of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), which is a major energy releasing molecule in cells.

    Life can come from no life, whether you believe it did or not, it’s very possible. You can’t say that abiogenesis is impossible, which I’m sure you’d know if you’ve ever done any research on it. Do you have any defenses to this without using the Bible?

    Wouldn’t you think that ‘he’ would have given us the best of everything?

    We were his “Chosen” children… Made in ‘his’ own image… So that must mean that God is limited in what ‘he’ can perceive as well…

    Why would he deny his “chosen children” better vision? Hearing? Strength?

    Why, if we are “perfect” would he put the food intake in the same place as the air intake? With all the people that die of choking every year… Don’t you think that is kinda stupid?

    Or the reproductive system… Why on earth would he put, to quote Anne McCaffrey, “Put the playground between the waste treatment plants?”

    Look at how much damage comes to a woman when she gives birth… All the infections we get because our anus is so close to our vaginal opening.

    Some animals live so much longer than humans… Combine that with the fact that the human life span has increased from about 30 to 72+ on average and damn… Why didn’t ‘god’ give us the knowledge to extend our life spans thousands of years ago? Why let his chosen children die at 30 then and die at 70?

Energy and matter had to exist before heat was used to created this immeasurable amount of heat. Physics demands it and cannot be denied. Something or someone had to be there for that to exist.

    Is a supermax prison “cruel and unusual” punisment against the Constitution, or are they acceptable?

    In Supermax prisons, prisoners are generally allowed out of their cells for only an hour a day; often they are kept in solitary confinement. They receive their meals through “food ports” in the doors of their cells. Prisoners are given no work and very little access to leisure activities, though some categories of prisoner are allowed to have a television. When Supermax inmates are allowed to exercise, this may take place in a small, enclosed area where the prisoner will exercise alone. Prisoners are under constant surveillance, usually with closed-circuit television cameras . Cell doors are usually opaque, while the cells may be windowless. Conditions are spartan, with poured concrete or metal furniture common. Cell walls, and sometimes plumbing, are often soundproofed to prevent communication between the inmates.

      - Variation
      - Natural selection
      - Reproduction

      See the reason now? Without reproduction, there can be no evolution. With those three conditions met, evolution is inevitable. In fact, it’s a statistical phenomenon, of which biological evolution is only one instantiation. Evolution has occurred in nonbiological situations, most notably in computer programs, when the conditions are present.

    Taken from an article in The Guardian:
    One of the delegates, Nabil Shaath, who was Palestinian foreign minister at the time, said: “President Bush said to all of us: ‘I am driven with a mission from God’. God would tell me, ‘George go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan’. And I did. And then God would tell me ‘George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq’. And I did.”
    Mr Bush went on: “And now, again, I feel God’s words coming to me, ‘Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East’. And, by God, I’m gonna do it.”

    Creationists, what do you think of this cross phylum evolution/speciation event observed in lab?
    “Helacyton gartleri shows one example of change that would be hard to call anything other than a change in kind. It is an amoeba-like life form that came from a human” (Van Valen and Maoirana 1991; evolved from a carcinoma, it spreads by taking over other laboratory cell cultures).
    Human cells mutate and evolve into a new, amoeba-like, organism. Thats a phylum to phylum transition. Similiar things have been noted with the HPV virus which originally came from human cells.
    So how inclusive is the christian and biblical “kind” that restricts evolution?
    I have just demonstrated a phylum to phylum evolutionary leap.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HeLa
    Due to their ability to replicate indefinitely, and their non-human number of chromosomes, Leigh Van Valen described HeLa as an example of the contemporary creation of a new species, Helacyton gartleri, named after Stanley M. Gartler, who Van Valen credits with discovering “the remarkable success of this species.” His argument for speciation depends on three points:

    The chromosomal incompatibility of HeLa cells with humans.
    The ecological niche of HeLa cells.
    Their ability to persist and expand well beyond the desires of human cultivators.
    http://www.flatrock.org.nz/topics/animals/dying_for_a_steak.htm
    a virus is not human cells, viruses do not even have a cellular structure.

    and of course no creationists can answer, becasue none of them can understand let alone explain it.

      HeLa derives its name from Henrietta Lacks, a Baltimore woman who died in1951 of cervical cancer, which are the cells HeLa comes from. As such, HeLa is an all female species which reproduces A-sexually. HeLa is female due to its two X chromosomes.

      Hela cannot be considered to be a different species. Yes they are immortalized, but so are hundreds of other cell lines that were taken from tumor or other genetically compromised tissues. Is each one of these immortalized cell lines a separate species?

      HeLa cells have no life of their own, they may survive quite well under laboratory conditions, but have not occupied any particular ecological niche.
