Seriously? This is your argument?

That's why I said you can't compare people talking in a room (in person) with someone calling on the phone.

Once again, I will not argue such an analogy.

Eh. Gotta go with edog on this one. Only the wife in this scenario knows all the circumstances and should be trusted to make the right call.

If I was on the phone when jasper called, I'd let it go to voicemail. If he called back right away, I'd know he needed to know something right then and then I'd answer. Otherwise I'd catch him when I got home and know he was calling just to say hi and no big deal either way.

Nope. But I can prove evolution. Not to you, nor would I waste my time trying to enlighten you, but it is a fact, unlike the stuff you say you believe. It is scientifically testable with empirical evidence.
One of the main points of studying anthropology is to understand where homo sapiens came from. If we had all those answers then we wouldn't be studying where we came from. We would be studying only other aspects of human beings; culture, language, archaeology.
By the way, evolution doesn't apply only to humans. I know most people understand that, but there are some...<shrug>
I'm not arguing evolution, but I'll remind you it's still just a "theory."

And our origins can't be proven, yet we exist.

psssht. My opinion's as unchanged as theirs. No big deal. Speaking of wives...
Boston Celtics vs NY Knicks. KG and Melo battling for position. KG. Big trash talker. Said something to Melo that set him off. No fisticuffs, but Melo was definitely going after him and the refs gave them both T's.

Melo waited outside the Celtics bus to have words with KG. Had to be kept away by coach and security.

What could he possibly have said that would so rile him up?

Word on the web is that KG told Melo that his wife, LaLa, tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.

Melo goes 6 for 26, Celtics win.

Scientific theories do not graduate into scientific laws. Theories are rooted in facts. We know things change over time, so evolution is a fact. The Theory of Evolution is a way to explain those facts. We explain it with natural selection, punctuated equilibrium, gradualism, and dozens of other methods that will be defined in greater detail at a later date. A theory is not just a hunch or a guess; THAT is a hypothesis. To be considered a scientific theory, four criteria must be met:

-A theory must EXPLAIN a body of facts.
-It must be able to PREDICT future occurrences of similar phenomena.
-It must be FALSIFIABLE and stand up to empirical experimentation.
-It must be SUPPORTED by a vast quantity of reliable facts.

I wonder how long before some Knicks team mate leaves a box of Hiney Nut Cheerios in his locker just to F with him.

How about you look like Ginger but you're Mary Ann on the inside?

So what is the significance of KG saying that the other guy's wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios?

Also, the word "Theory" has a different meaning when it comes to the scientific method. It doesn't mean what laypeople think it means ("Oh, I have this THEORY about something"). In science, theories are part of the proof. The "theory of gravity," for example.

I don't think there's any significance. Just some smack talk to get under his skin. Apparently it worked.

Straight from yesterday's post from Wikipedia's list of common misconceptions:

The word theory in the theory of evolution does not imply mainstream scientific doubt regarding its validity; the concepts of theory and hypothesis have specific meanings in a scientific context. While theory in colloquial usage may denote a hunch or conjecture, a scientific theory is a set of principles that explains observable phenomena in natural terms."Scientific fact and theory are not categorically separable,"and evolution is a theory in the same sense as germ theory or the theory of gravitation.

You never know. One of us could be your wife's BFF and we're reporting back to her. Hahahaha!

Wasn't there recently a letter or something along those lines?

Heh. He just needs to space out the vents more instead of back to back (the birthday thing and the phone thing).
;)

Now I have to think of who I want to be in Tonka's fantasies....

Someone was venting in an online forum and it turns out, her husband had joined the forum and was using her complaints as motivation to work on himself.
