Ah well you see, this is the latest move from theists....."Theistic Evolution". The time has come (as we knew it would) when theist who don't wish to be seen as total idiots are beginning to accept the overwhelming evidence for evolution (Catholic Church in point). So, with the ever mounting and undeniable evidence that our brave lads and lassies in the labs are presenting us with, what are they to do??

Easy!

They simply change what they have, for hundreds of years, believed and touted as "Truth" (capital T for added effect). Simple as that! The ideas that they have so vehemently opposed for the past 150 years and labelled as "The Work Of Satan"..... now become acceptable...with the proviso that "Goddunit"!

The previously claimed 'Work Of Satan' suddenly becomes 'The Work of God'!!

Brilliant 'eh?

Night-night, y'all!!
Please rifleman, my friend. You have read far too many of my posts to NOT know that I do NOT believe in anything SUPERNATURAL . . . IT doesn't exist!! Pay attention.

Default "It's Ah-LIVE!!!!!!"

Wellllllll... that depends on whether we agree that The Greater Universal Field theory is supernatural, or if it truly exists, and not, say, The Reverse Binary sub-Universal Theory of Transient Relativity.

I'm working on that in my lab right now!

It was just a little comment on the euphemism of "ladder." It was to be a teaching moment. Ladder or "chain" for that matter, are not the best understandiing of evolution, if we're being pedantic and all.

Besides Creationism along with the idea of Evolution in Geological History there was Velakovsky's catastrophism. The Jurassic Age is very accommodating to the theory of the catastrophe in the Excess of the universal Idea of hmmm...? Articulation?? 'survival of the fittest', 'god helps only those who help themselves', OR 'there is no free lunch'.

There isn't a reputable scientist (including ALL the greatest) who denies that "some kind of field" is responsible for the attributes of the universe and our reality, rifleman. Get over it.

So what is it that is lab. oriented deduction from thought experiment oriented deduction? Evolution itself failed the mark, but so did creationism not make progress towards a better LABORATORY context.

Now the world wants that against conventionalist sciences. The consumerism for the Nation cannot be justified for changes in the influences of government upon our BILDUNG (public education system [ideally thought]. Consumerism is just a hinderance for denying exploitation of the masses.

1) Who said I was reputable, and all the "luggage" that attends?

2) Get over what?

3) If it's just "some sort of field", then why not my Binary model? Who says yours is "top gun" after all? Esp. since none of us will ever be able to prove any of it....

As my Atlanta, Georgia based friend says so often "The futha we think the more compli-mah-cayted it all gits!" Then he adds "So.. let's jist have a beer!"

I know why I like this guy!

Just another way of "evolving", Right? Maybe someday in the far future they will be looking back at us in a show case and say, "What a bunch of heathens". And we will be sitting along side the Dino's from the Jurassic Period.
