Scientists estimate that there are about 8.7 million animal species so the line is very long. The Psuedoscience teachers at Bryan College teach that God told Noah a few thousand years ago how to pack them all in a boat to avoid "Global Flooding". Let's do nothing to reduce the 9.7 billion tons of carbon dioxide that we annually dump into the atmosphere and wait for God to provide a solution to "Global Warming". Hint: It's already too late.
How many people would be signed up if it wasn't required?
Laws enacted by Congress should be enforced entirely or repealed.
This applies to the ACA now being selectively enforced by Obama.
After March 31, if someone shows up at an ER without health insurance they should be reported to the IRS if they're U.S. Citizens or to the Naturalization Service if they're not.
All of our mainstream professional science societies have
policy statements accepting the reality of anthropogenic
global climate change. This is consensus. Climate science
is not settled. Real science never is.
The result of the Kitzmiller v. Dover trial in 2005 was a
thorough and public repudiation of "Intelligent Design (ID)" as Science and a humiliating defeat for it's primary advocate, The Discovery Institute.
ID is simply relabeled "creationism"
and has no place in a science class at any level.
Seems like Bryan College is a great place to keep a closed mind closed.
Paleontologists exposed the Piltdown hoax in 1953. Charles Darwin exposed the Genesis hoax in 1859.
For anyone interested in real science, including Evolution, the new Cosmos series narrated by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson begins tomorrow night on the Fox network. The original Cosmos series narrated by Carl Sagan is being broadcast, starting today.
Ik, enjoy your posts.
Responding to Obsessive Compulsive Religious Bigots can be entertaining on an otherwise slow day.
A visit to Troll Town.
All plant and animal species that exist today
are the result of 3.5 billion years of natural selection
and they all share a common structure, i.e., cells with DNA.
Paleontologists tell us that modern humans (Homo Sapiens Sapiens)
arose about 200,000 years ago. Civilization with written history has only been around for about 15,000 years. This is reality. Sadly, some adults aren't able to overcome their childhood indoctrination with the myths of Genesis. Worse, churches continue to indoctrinate impressionable children with these
myths. The Genesis myths are stories written by men based on their imagination and have no factual or historical basis. When will church leaders display the intellectual courage to publicly admit this and stop indoctrinating children with them?
Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace did not invent Evolution any more than Newton and Einstein invented Gravity. "Creationists" can't discredit the Evolution message so they try to discredit the messenger.
