Welcome on my profile. I am RTS fan, especially Generals ZH. I am looking for other players, so if you like Contra, TEOD, or any other mod and want to try with me, just PM me.
It's long and any part I picked from it doesn't make sense. The first assumption in introduction part is that the rate of decay is constant. And then you have whole chapter 7 talking about 750'000 times greater decay rate, saying that it was faster before flood. Maybe 1+1=1'500'0000 before flood? Come on, that document is just long, but worthless.
He even calculated that in such decay rates it would kill any lifeform... and then he said maybe all decay happened before the God created plants and animals - that means two days? Have you even bothered to read it, before sending it to me??
Not offended, I meant it as a kind of joke. Nevermind. I believe that what Einstein meant are exactly these smartphones and latest stuff, not us being physically unable. And he was right. You can view computer addicted people as slaves of technology, but we are not all like that yet. Also, from their point of view they just may have a happy life filled with what they like...
I never said this is a good time to live here (and I don't like it here), but it is not the worst. At least not for us, we don't have war at home. Of course I would like the killing to stop. To get into space age. To reverse the wrongs we have done to environment. Key to this is again technology, we just have to use it right. Nukes, or powerplants? The technology is based on same isotope.
You would adapt if you survived long enough to develop those changes. If you get a disease your immunity system doesn't know, it will still try to fight it. If you win and survive, your immunity will know how to fight the same thing next time. That's how vaccines work. But visible changes? No. When I was young, I loved climbing trees, but I didn't get a monkey tail - that's not how it works.
Agreed with the personal discovery, but there are things you can't discover in person. You have to rely on technology, or just logical assumptions.
Yes, we lived thousands of years without todays tech. But todays human wouldn't survive without them. Evolution slowly takes away those things you don't need much. Now we have technology, but we are physically unable to get food or defend against predators without tool.
Even if you moved just like 500 years back, you wouldn't survive for long (between humans, same species!) - some disease would catch you very soon. First food, or drinking water I guess. Maybe even WW2 time would be enough to show as an example, eastern front was hard... Ask your grandfather. Mine once mentioned that cow **** is good to keep feet warm in winter, that time I thought he was joking. What a yuck for our modern clean society, right?
Points of view change when you discover better angle to look at the topic. From my point of view past is very complex. Maybe it is easier to look from the other side, but this complexity lures me. Enjoy the talk, it is getting surprisingly long.
Edit: I just noticed that your 'so far' looks like a threat. Ok, I'll rather go to sleep.
It all started with fossils... I'm able to tolerate different opinions, but when someone (and it is almost always Elf) write something like that, blood boils...
Saying that we can't understand things that are beyond our lifespan sounds kinda too simpleminded to me. Of course, I don't expect everyone to understand things like quantum theory (no I don't), but I would expect people to respect those who do, instead of mocking them. If everyone was just like 'let's live our simple happy life', you wouldn't have internet, smartphones, or anything like that today. For every scientific topic, there are people saying: 'I think doing this is wrong, because the God didn't mean us to do this.' We can fly, we can travel the sea, and with more technology we will be able to do new things.
My cousins share many visual traits between them, but my mother has stronger genes. For example it's like all the family from father's side has blue eyes. But my mother has brown and brown is stronger. Usually when someone has blue eyes, both his parents have those.
Evolution didn't happen overnight, it is here with the first something you can call life. It also never stopped, it is still happening. But don't expect you will go to sleep in evening wake up as something else in the morning. The more complex the organism is, the more time it will take to make changes. Take appendix, it is quite a long time since we stopped using it and it didn't vanish as whole yet.
The easiest way to observe evolution in real time is to study bacterias and viruses. Simple organisms that can adapt quickly for a new environment, or a new host, or to develop resistance to antibiotics. For example, there is a new kind of flu every few years. We have plenty of types of antibiotics to try on them, but it won't take long (just decades) and we will have to develop an entirely new way of treatment.
'Bare in mind Commander that before Christ time was measured inverse like next year would be 2014 and so on.Calendars changed too and so on.' - what I meant is that our counting of years is kind of impractical.
To the cousin stuff: you and your cousins probably share some characteristics. It may be something visual - similar face appearance, or for example a birthmark. It may also be something that is not visible, like faster/slower healing, or probability of getting some illness. (Diabetes, some kinds of cancer, or cholesterol levels are known to be heritable.)
So, there are now two people who have share the same trait (let's talk about birthmark, that would be best example). You and your cousin. So there is something you have in common. Were you just created that way? Or where is a person (A) who looks exactly half way between you and your cousin? And the person that stands between you and person A? Where are all the 'missing links'?
This is exactly what author of the picture Moddb.com asked, only about humans. Sounds a bit weird, hah? So, the answer is, they are nowhere. You have the same birthmark from your grandparent, ancestor of both you and your cousin. You both got his mark, but otherwise you are not the same.
If we say, we developed from apes, we don't mean todays chimpanzee. We humans, and chimps had the same ancestor, ancient ape that looked differently and after different way of life we developed different characteristics. Ancestor of humans didn't find enough food on trees and had to climb down and find it on the ground. To survive between predators, he had to develop more intelligence, while his tail and ability to climb was not used and therefore 'faded away'. Same thing happened to fur/hair much later, as we discovered that it is more comfortable to wear animal fur. Only parts that remained covered are those that are more vulnerable.

Calendars don't matter. It only depends on us to define units and scale of measurement. Celsius scale also goes to negative numbers.
To this: Moddb.com I have a question, do you have a cousin? Preferably similar age and same sex. It would serve as a good example.
Calculated wrong? Like there is a mistake being made on each measurement? Certainly not.
How about Uranium decay? If you dig out the uranium ore, there are products of decay that shows you how old that ore seam is. 6 thousand years is nothing. Even pyramids are older than that.
Except that those fossils are much older than your idea of Earth age...
Toy is made for kids above 3 years. In case of accidental ingestion, give a glass of water or milk, and contact a poison control center.
Looks like at least 3 people liked the joke. But whatever, I can't make everyone happy...
Bosnian gay muslim terrorist - wants your *** to explode...
Looks very real in today Murica.
Works because men want to come close
Wait, what is this? Last form of Mi24 evolution?
Creationists who try to mock science never make sense. This one is very strong.
Bradley is a recon vehicle in Wargame. A good one. No, an OP one.
Without watching the video, the answer is that they won't have any religion. At least until they convert to some for themselves. Murica, why do you even make videos about this? If you want to know for sure, look here to Czech, or to Estonia and see what happens.
Alone? No thanks, that's not a good opportunity.
True, until you see yourself next day on video.
And I thought Christmas are about family having time together... silly me...
The leaf patterns look very good, but kids in school will hate you when they are ordered to draw it. Simple is more comfortable.
Third would be Jalapeños?
Nah, God's favorite 'delete all work' process.
You just need some Fukitol and then you pass it with ease.
Marksman turret it so ugly, it can't even work :)
They should vote for Romney and we should dig bunkers. Then it's back on natural selection.
Campaign is a bit like that, you don't want to loose your units, because you play with them in next mission. And yes, I'm sad now.
