Frankenstein, the Modern Prometheus, was first published in 1818; that almost TWO-hundred years ago. Check your facts before you make a fool of yourself.

Just for the record - the word "over" 100 years was missing. Even so, I should have said 200 okay?
Does that make you feel good? Superior perhaps?

Finding one little thread in a haystack rather than looking at the whole haystack makes you feel good?

Sounds like a pretty negative agenda to me.
Watch out...the world is going to pass you by while you're stuck picking at straws.

Have a great day!

Dave,
It's called credibility.
Credibility leads to trust, which is one of the pillars of persuasion.
Make such a gross error, and I stop reading. Why waste my time?

Now you have shown how you have no persuasion abilities. You did read it and even responded
I would never trust anyone who waste so much time nit picking.

What scientists? Umm, young earth religious fanatics, maybe? If you're not clear on abiogenesis and evolution, maybe you shouldn't embarrass yourself in a public forum.

Umm...
"And with casual skepticism, Jim Collins, PhD, professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, and codirector of the Center for BioDynamics, College of Engineering, Boston University, Massachusetts, responded to the hype: "The work...is an important advance in our ability to re-engineer organisms; it does not represent the making of new life from scratch," he pointed out.

Dr. Collins considers the "synthetic cell" as synthetic only "in the sense that its DNA is synthesized, not in that a new life form has been created. Its genome is a stitched-together copy of the DNA of an organism that exists in nature, with a few small tweaks thrown in.... Frankly," said Dr. Collins, "scientists do not know enough about biology to create life."

Hannah Beswick was a wealthy English woman( 1688-1758)who had a pathological fear of premature burial. She was not buried until 110 years after her death when an archbishop said it was time to put her under the ground (in an unmarked grave).

What a strange AKA for someone to use. You relate to her how?

On the subject of credability; who is more crediable? Someone who hides behind an alias, or someone who uses their real name when online?

I'm not sure why you have to say something negative everytime you comment on something I write in other blogs, or my column. I never get a civil response from you. If I irritate you so much why even read my stuff?

Is it that the "Fine Wine" in your motto has turned to vinegar?
Just curious.

I'm having trouble trying to understand why some stranger who goes by the name of a dead wealthy woman with paranoia, seems to have an ax to grind with me.

I don't have trouble with critism as it's part of the price you pay when you have the guts to write something and put your name to it.

It's the relentless negative comments, either in this forum or when I make comments on other blogs, that puzzles me. It's like you have a personal problem with me. Do you know me? Have we ever met? If you have any integrity, tell me your name. Maybe that'll help me understand why you delight in dogging me online.

I figure you have a reason to hid behind an aka...something like it's fun to take cheap shots and not admit who you are. You hid behind that hag you use as an avatar and criticize people without fear you'll be discovered.

You should know that your aka puts you in the same boat as the rest of the anonymous cowards that roam online bad mouthing people.

"You should know that your aka puts you in the same boat as the rest of the anonymous cowards that roam online bad mouthing people."

Why would knowing someone's identity be of value to you? Would you like to get angry and threaten their health?

"I don't have trouble with critism as it's part of the price you pay when you have the guts to write something and put your name to it."

Apparently you do. Criticism should be part of the process toward improvement not some price extracted because you are full of guts.

"If you have any integrity, tell me your name. Maybe that'll help me understand why you delight in dogging me online."

That is the typical nonsensical connection that occurs in your writing that is so infuriating. How could name-knowledge possibly lead to such understanding. Maybe "Hannah Beswick" is more revealing.

Dave, Dave, Dave. Sounds like you're the one with paranoia.

An "a.k.a."??? Could be my pen name. Might be some other relationship or meaning. Think outside the box, Dave.

Have we ever met, you ask? You would be more than surprised, someone you might have even trusted at one time. I look nothing like my "picture" on the side bar.

I'll tell you what, Dave: I will be sitting in the second booth opposite the soup/salad bar inside Adel's at 0900 hrs this Saturday. Just ask one of the waitresses to direct you to "Hannah's" booth.

Are you saying that you are someone I once trusted? If so, why are you doing this? Why follow me with negative remarks wherever I comment? What happened? How did you end up like this?
And what have I done to deserve your scorn?

I have no desire to see you in person. I just want to know who you are, especially since you hinted that you're someone I once knew.
There's only one person in my entire life that I can think of with a bone to chew with me.

Her name is Judy H. and she was once the editor of The Arcata Union. I was forced to fire her while I was the publisher in 1988.
I believe she's the publisher of the NCJ now.

I'm just trying to understand what's motivating you to dog me like you do. Maybe you could explain your motivation. That would help. And telling me who you really are (My email address is richstan1@suddenlink.net)would go a long way.

Thanks
