Thanks Old Guy. Wouldn't want their "outrage" based on false propaganda...again.<quoted text>
It's a complicated story. He had a Democratic "super majority" (which is what you need to get things done) for only about 6 months. He used that time to pass healthcare reform.
"Depending upon which metric is used, Democrats had a super majority for roughly six months which includes the seven weeks between Frankens swearing-in on July 8 to Ted Kennedys death on August 25 and the four months and nine days between Paul Kirks swearing-in on September 25, 2009 to his replacement by Scott Brown on February 4, 2010. This was just barely enough time to pass the biggest and most difficult health care legislation in generations; an event that would likely never have happened under any other circumstances. This also happened under the onslaught of every procedural obstruction the Republicans could put in its path."

Yes, there are extinct animals and plants. But like you said, every single dinosaur is gone, both large and small. Not just a few types. Was every single species incapable of surviving, or did something wipe them out?
Was every single species of hominid incapable of surviving, after having lived and multiplied for millions of years? Or was there also a catastrophic occurrence that wiped every one of them out, but miraculously avoided wiping out primates and modern man? I wonder what the odds of that would be.

What the democrats actually did was gut a non-healthcare-related spending bill that had passed the House (because all spending bills must originate in the House), then they filled it with the ObamaCare legislation. It was illegal.
"The Senate began work on its own proposals while the House was still working on the Affordable Health Care for America Act. Instead, the Senate took up H.R. 3590, a bill regarding housing tax breaks for service members. As the United States Constitution requires all revenue-related bills to originate in the House, the Senate took up this bill since it was first passed by the House as a revenue-related modification to the Internal Revenue Code. The bill was then used as the Senate's vehicle for their healthcare reform proposal, completely revising the content of the bill."

Nice bag of lies, copy and pasted from a far right wing,teabag paid for with dark money foundation. There is no way that you came up with that load of crap on your own.
#25037 Feb 5, 2014
you are a joke
calling the post you responded to as a bag of lies is proof of your drunken stupor of liberal kook aide.
enjoy your buzz....it is going to be short lived and erased.
#25038 Feb 5, 2014
I'm a joke? I'm not the one who admitted to sleeping with mommy. That's just sick. Well geez, look at the source. Looks like the way you reply to everything points at you being in a constant drunken stupor. Or is it drugs?

What, exactly, are the differences between "modern" man and Neanderthals? Take a look at this article:
The opinions about so-called Neanderthals appear to be fabricated.
And as for dating methods, those are completely unreliable. Here's an interesting article about dating:
".... not only is the nature of Java Man unsettled, but so is its age. All that anyone can say for certain is that it is no older than the earth itself. Such discrepancies are, furthermore, much more common than supposed, and illustrate the folly of trying to date a past event without the testimony of unimpeachable witnesses."
That confirms what I told Old Guy about the ice core samples. Without documentation at the time, it's impossible to say how old anything is. There are too many variables that may have affected the samples, plus we don't know how accurate our methods are.

your stupidity and total lack of substance is showing again.
if you aren't spinning, you aren't typing
#25041 Feb 5, 2014
You've been so boring the last couple days. Tell us more about how Obama had less votes in 2012 than McCain had in 2008 or something equally silly again. That's when you are fun.
#25042 Feb 5, 2014
Actually, modern birds are the last survivors of the dinosaur line. Science is uncertain of what killed the rest of the dinosaurs.
I've already explained to you that some of the hominids did survive: 2 species of genus Pan, 2 species of genus Gorilla), 2 species of genus Pongo, and one species of genus Homo (humans). There was no catastrophic event that wiped out the others.
#25043 Feb 5, 2014
There's nothing in that article to support your last statement.
Yeah, not from a scientific source at all, but from a "creationism examiner" Terry Hurlbut.
"A serious student of politics and political philosophy since his Yale (1980) days, Terry A. Hurlbut analyzes current political events from the perspective of some of the finest political theorists of the Western world, from Locke to Paine to Tocqueville to Rand."
I'm not impressed.

It's an assumption on the part of evolutionists that birds evolved from dinosaurs. Some scientists think that dinosaurs evolved from birds. Maybe neither thing happened. These scientists can't even decide whether "Longisquama insignis" had feathers or scales:
Dinosaurs are extinct.
There are no transitional species alive between monkeys/apes and modern humans.
#25046 Feb 5, 2014
have you found anyone desperate enough to date you yet?
#25047 Feb 5, 2014
True. But we know they did exist because of fossil and DNA evidence.
"Humans are primates. Physical and genetic similarities show that the modern human species, Homo sapiens, has a very close relationship to another group of primate species, the apes. Humans and the great apes (large apes) of Africa -- chimpanzees (including bonobos, or so-called pygmy chimpanzees) and gorillas -- share a common ancestor that lived between 8 and 6 million years ago. Humans first evolved in Africa, and much of human evolution occurred on that continent. The fossils of early humans who lived between 6 and 2 million years ago come entirely from Africa.
Most scientists currently recognize some 15 to 20 different species of early humans. Scientists do not all agree, however, about how these species are related or which ones simply died out. Many early human species -- certainly the majority of them left no living descendants."

I don't see any distinction between so-called "Neanderthals" and "modern" humans.
Yes, I know how important "scientific sources" are to evolutionists.
Is this better? Same information, just a more palatable source:
"New age estimates for Homo erectus fossils on the Indonesian island of Java have physical anthropologists scratching their crania.
After convincing most of their colleagues that H. erectus may have persisted on the Indonesian island of Java as recently as 30,000 years ago late enough to have coexisted in Asia with modern humans for more than 100,000 years anthropologists presented new analyses April 14 suggesting the fossils in question may actually predate Homo sapiens by hundreds of thousands of years.
It all depends which radiometric method you use to assess the fossils age, New York University anthropologist Susan Antón reported at the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists."
#25049 Feb 5, 2014
See what I mean? That's boring. Tell us about those election numbers.
#25050 Feb 5, 2014
There has been DNA testing done on transitional species other than "Neanderthals"?
The fossil evidence is highly suspect. The reconstruction of a skull that's been smashed to 4 cm in height isn't real convincing.

"Krings et al. then compared this sequence against a database of 994 different mtDNA sequences from modern humans. For the sequence of mtDNA in question, humans on average differ from each other in 8 +/- 3.1 positions (the '3.1' represents one standard deviation). The greatest difference between any two modern humans was 24, and the smallest difference was 1 (because duplicates were removed from the database).
By contrast, the Neandertal genome had an average of 27 +/- 2.2 differences from modern humans (3.375 times the average difference between modern humans). The smallest difference between any human and the Neandertal was 22, and the largest difference between any human and the Neandertal was 36. These differences put the Neandertal genome well outside the limits of modern humans."

so you are still with the rubber doll then.
try putting a bag over your head....maybe that will help.
there has to be someone desperate enough to be with you.
check craigslist.....run a ad.
