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.

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.
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.

Cop out. That's not what the separation of church and state was intended for. That's just an over zealous interpretation.
Yet another illustration of how you selectively endorse the Constitution.

I don't think it matters what cereal he picked, it's that he discussed what her hoo-hah tastes like.

Endorse or interpret?
And liberals aren't guilty of the same thing?

Endorse, i.e. advocate.

Your insistence on deflecting to a perceived (and uninformed) perception of an entire catagory of people instead of substantively discussing your own viewpoint is not only a barrier to meaningful debate but further demonstration of the lack of thought and consideration behind your own position.

Quick endorsement for Chicago peeps. Yesterday I had to get a root canal. I went to Dr. Priscilla Yeung in Bucktown, I HATE HATE HATE the dentist, and the experience could not have been better. She was AMAZING. If you have the bad fortune to need a root canal, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
