Well, in the event anyone sees this… I came here for the first time just yesterday, and I’ll be logging out, most likely not returning.
It’s my own fault that I felt the need to clarify some things in response to @MikeYohe (in this and other topics), and I felt strongly enough about it to try on and off for much of the day to post it, even…[Read more]
Holmes, you have going on a couple of decades looking at this problem. I have also run into articles that referred to some of this research. They were promoting the idea that some of the early life could have come from another planet. One that is not here today. Is that still an open possibility in your research? My self I still go with DNA was…
Holmes – “non-material agency”. First time I have heard it put that way. I googled “non-material agency” and got ‘eroticism’. Dug a little more and got ‘mind’ and ‘soul’. I still go with you on the meaning, good choice.
I think for the good of clarity we should stop changing the meanings of words. “God” should mean what it was first us…
If I could, I would buy you a cup of coffee and sit down and explain to you my viewpoint. You are working with a very long time period.
How long, please tell me what you mean here time between what events or dates and how long? The estimates vary but the duration of the Cambrian explosion itself was apparently somewhere between 13 and 25…[Read more]
Holmes, I think you missed my point. You are saying that you don’t think natural selection could pass the evidence test in that Age. I agree.

Patrick D replied to the topic 370 prosecutors: Trump would be charged with obstruction. in the forum Politics and Social Issues 3 months, 1 week ago
I asked you a simple question; Do you support Trump?
“I am supporting the Rules of Law.” does not answer the question; it is an evasion..
Your attempt at interrogating me is a ham fisted attempt to avoid answering the question. I still don’t know where you stand. Right now, I no longer care. Getting a straight answer from you is…[Read more]
I agree that the US as a nation has never ben Christian nation in the way you describe. However ,it’s fair to say that the normative values of the US have always been based on Judaeo-Christian morality. The broad influence of Christianity is based (to this day) on Calvinism.
I formed my view at least in a part from Max Weber’s “T…[Read more]
Reich is doing good work although the material in “Who We Are And How We Got Here” is not particularly groundbreaking, as geneticists have been exploring this stuff for a while. It’s just controversial to liberals.
Reich first irked the status quo years ago when his lab discovered the elevated prostate cancer risk in black men is…[Read more]
