Despite what Microsoft claims, Google is your friend.
I don't think wikipedia is a valid sorce my friend, no Professor I ever had would accept it as a work cited, or reference , depending on format; but good try! I will do some study on it when I get time; it has something to do with body mass, weight and wingspan. It,s Aerodynamic science I refer to. I don't have to Google everything I post.

You simply trust ancient men to be one hundred percent truthful about fantastic claims that have zero evidence.
Nature does not demand all creatures procreate for a species to survive. Just ask worker ants.
"No one can really know what a god wants"???
Really?
I beg to differ... He saved me, we talk all the time!

First: It wasn't Wikipedia. Not every wiki is Wikipedia. But in this case Wikipedia has a good article on it too http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumblebee with multiple references that any college professor would approve of. FYI, Only dumb/lazy students cite Wikipedia...the smart ones cite the references that Wikipedia cites. See how that works?

Second: Please do the research, I'd love to hear your findings. I wasn't suggesting that you google what you post. I was suggesting that you google what you're thinking of posting before you post it. It may save you some embarrassment.

Fact is... they preferred perversions over God!

I tell you you're wrong, explain how you're wrong, and tell you that there are multiple peer reviewed studies that can attest to this. Your response:
"UR A TERRIST!!! Now let me rant about how you can pray the gay away!"

What a pile of trash you are. Seriously. Are you so stupid that you don't understand that the strict adherence to a factless, unjustified, and unbelievable Abrahamic religion IS the primary cause of innocent children being killed in bombings today? And you're pointing a finger at ME?

Use your scientific method, and fully explain how a Bumblebee can fly? I belive they can, one stung me the other day! However prove it, useing scientific fact? Have at it!
Are you really so stupid that you believe the old "science says a bumblebee can't fly" bullsh!t? Try spending 3 seconds actually thinking about something before you propose a kindergarten level challenge and make yourself look even more of an idiot than you really are.

Your stupid assumptions and generalizations show exactly what is wrong with many Christians. It's nothing but a baseless attack, and I hope you're not so abysmally stupid that you think it's anything else.

I've met many atheists. I've met many more religious people. I can say that, without a doubt, the atheists do FAR more good for humanity. And I can also say, without a doubt, that the religious people show FAR more hate and intolerance. You take an objective look at the world and just try to tell me that I'm wrong.

I didn't say quote scripture at me. If you didn't want to answer you shouldn't have written a giant non-answer.
If I had provided you an answer,you would not have been able to grasp it's meaning,as evidenced by your inability to grasp the meaning of my other responses.
I was merely pointing out what I believe to be the reasons for your inability to compprehend and therefore the futility of continuing our discussion.
My response,obviously,upset you,That was not my intention.
You did not state a reason as to why you may have disagreed with what I posted,, Your response makes it clear that You arbitrarily dismissed,because that is not what you wanted to hear

Well, you are right (didn't expect that did you)! If a bee of most any kind is compaired to a fixed wing aircraft, it can't fly, however it can't be and it does! So my hat is off to you! I did base it on what I had been told for many years, sometimes by highly educated people? My degree is in Psychology, not aerodynamics. So… How does this make you feel?

If you had not posted any ad and received a phone call from a complete stranger stating that a friend might have found your dog, it would be much more "miraculous." As it is, you placed your telephone number in the paper. Ads are not prayers. If both are answered, it is not a miracle, coincidence or even remarkable. If you continue to maintain that it is, take a real close look at the classifieds and testify in your faith that if a couple gays hook up at a seedy motel they have justly as much claim to Proof of the Miraculous Blessing and Will of God as you do.

Hey, you rudely boasted a claim that was erroneous, juvenile and ignorant. Don't blame me if you get called on it. Propose something that has a foothold in reality and we might discuss it - unless you are arrogant and idiotic, in which case you will likely be ridiculed again.

"The calculations that purported to show that bumblebees cannot fly are based upon a simplified linear treatment of oscillating aerofoils. The method assumes small amplitude oscillations without flow separation. This ignores the effect of dynamic stall, an airflow separation inducing a large vortex above the wing, which briefly produces several times the lift of the aerofoil in regular flight. More sophisticated aerodynamic analysis shows that the bumblebee can fly because its wings encounter dynamic stall in every oscillation cycle."

Here's the way that you, just like a good Christain, continually attempt to insult me instead of simply answering what was asked:
"you would not have been able to grasp"
"your inability to grasp"
"your inability to compprehend"
"upset you"
"arbitrarily dismissed"

So, to clarify exactly where you stand, NO... I am not unable to grasp anything you have or will state. I am not unable to comprehend anything you have or will state. I am not upset by the existence of stupid people on the internet. And I arbitrarily dismiss nothing. At this point, you can either tuck your tail and slink off to whatever hole you came from, or you can answer me.

I will state it again, as clearly as possible:
If you had never prayed could it still have happened in the exact same way (i.e. through either random chance or normal processes)? Do note that this says nothing about probability or your difficulty in grasping that a low probability occurrence could happen to you. Please explain what happened and how you think the question applies.

I did. He probably did, too. Why wouldn't we both expect that we were right? It's not like either of us tend to blab on about things we know nothing about and then ask worthless and invalid questions in an attempt to play "gotcha". I mean, who would do that?

Here we go again,and you,as did the others who responded, are not addressing the specifics that I mentioned,that led to the events that led to my finding my dog.
Go back,read the specifics that I posted and address them.
They are 2 different events that took place on the same day, on the same date,at the same time.
when you can address those specifics,contained in the 2 separate events ,which you have not addressed,then get back to me with any questions you have.
Kindly refrain from any inane responses,such as have previously been expressed by others,
Address all the specifics, contained in both events, not merely the ones that serve your purpose,thereby arbitrarily ignoring the others and thereby making your conclusions invalid,since they are not based on the facts as I stated them
I f you can't or are unwilling to do that,then don't waste my time

My response was about your arrogant and condescending response to all that post! I admitted I was wrong; I was not actually responding to you; yet you felt is you’re obligation to run me down as you do almost everyone who posts on this topix! Yea you have a right to your opinion, as do others. You act like a child, and rudeness is all you know!
