You think putting a gun to people's heads is a great way to create demand?
If it was such a great thing people would willingly sign up.

I just finished watching a vid featuring a conversation between Dr Richard Dawkins (biologist)and Dr Lawrence Krauss (physicist). Many of their views and analyzes were so naive and incorrect and the sad thing is that the audience comprising academics and students mainly drawn from science disciples were not deep thinkers nor intelligent enough enough to point out all the logical errors committed by the two eminent scientists. Sad.

CREATION FROM NOTHING....

1) Prof Lawrence Krauss is fond of shocking people by telling them that the universe originated from "nothing" and then he abruptly stops and unless prodded by a question from the audience he reluctantly admits that the qm vacuum is a soup of virtual particles popping in and out of it. Of course, there exist weak and fleeting em waves in this so-called vacuum as well and so in this subtle state, 4-dimensional space-time does not exist and the natural laws of 4-dimensional space-time breakdown as they're exceeded. Most lay people understand "nothing" in the classical sense to mean the total absence of something.

2) In physics, a virtual particle is a transient fluctuation that exhibits many of the characteristics of an ordinary particle, but that exists for a limited time. A virtual particle may be said to be a subtle state of energy/matter that partly exceeds the normal rate of vibration of a real particle and so this explains its exhibition of many transient real particle features.

3) Obviously, such virtual or partial real particles cannot exhibit 4-dimensional spatio-temporal features and only when their rate of vibration reduces to a frequency that is sufficient for them to manifest as real or gross physical particles does the 4-dimensional spatio-temporal universe with its typical features comes into existence.

ORIGIN OF LIFE & COMMON ANCESTORS

1) I would hesitate to call the appearance of species an act of chemistry transforming itself into biology or of insentience becoming sentience unless sentience inheres in insentient matter and emerges in successive waves under inner impulses of sentient energies in matter that seek manifestation or materialization. The information gap between insentience and sentience is to vast to be surmounted by mere push and pull forces that lack an aim.

2) Just as our universe emerges from a subtle state which is the so-called qm vacuum as explained above, similarly the origin of life in apparently insentient matter and the subsequent appearance of a range of graded species can be logically seen as an act of evolution from a state of involution.

3) It's logical to accept the common ancestor approach giving rise to different lines of species since different frequencies of energy embedded with different bits of information can merge or fission into several lines with the innate bit of information in each aspect that came from a common ancestor then undergoing several adaptations in response to climate, urges, food needs, inter-breeding, personality traits and the like.

If given the opportunity. Until now, they never HAD the opportunity. And it is still willingly, considering the minor penalty.

No, I am not talking about C. I am talking about citrate.

Look it up. Google citrate and kidney stones. Its one of the few things clinically proven to reduce risk for oxalate stones.

I know all that....

I thought you'd confused Vit C with citric acid when they're two different chemical compounds. Ascorbate also bonds with Ca^2+( 2+ as valence).

Ok, matter closed.

The only religion to aim for perfect non-violence in the now and at all times is Jainism...

Yeah I agree we have discussed this topic way passed the boundaries of the less extreme

I knew C is different from citrate. The more interesting turn is the fact that citrate has a slightly different effect than citric acid in terms of prevention vs reduction. Some people get citrate prescribed. Others, like me, imbibe lemons as much as possible which provides citric acid rather than straight citrate.

THE GRAND IDEAL OF PERFECT NON-VIOLENCE

However, what Mahavir, the yogi-ascetic founder of the heterodox sect called Jainism, failed to realize is this - the degree of evolution of consciousness from a state of involution till the present in the terrestrial force fields is unregenerate, divided, nurtures barbarism/violence/decay/senes cence/decomposition/diseases/d eath and as such any attempt to realize perfect non-violence at this stage of the evolution is futile. Only supramentalization of matter can achieve this grand aim and bring forth the next species, the supramental being with novel internal as well as external features, from the mental being (man).

It was argued under the commerce clause, the anti-injuntion act and the taxing power. But you are too stubborn to actually read the documentation.

The answer is that I don't want to pay for anyone else's healthcare. I want everyone to pay for their own healthcare to the extent that they are capable. I don't want the people who go naked to clog up the hospitals and increase my costs. I don't want people who can contribute to their own healthcare costs to get totally free governmental healthcare. I see this legislation as a way to satisfy my desires. The only other way is to cut off everyone and have people dying in the streets, and I'm not in favor of that.

MAHAVIR shed his clothes and would walk around stark naked since he was always in a state of trance of the higher mind and as such had overcome the body consciousness that involves notions about gender differentiation, lust, sex thoughts, hunger, thirst, sleep and other ordinary bodily needs.

Isn't citrate a derivative of citric acid being its conjugate base?

So, is citrate stable or in words does citrate exist as independent ions in solution without bonding with other ions to form stable chemical compounds?

If citrate ions that're derived from citric acid are stable enough to exist in the independent state then obviously citrate can be consumed as an independent entity and need not be consumed as citric acid.

Just an observation.
