This one with the broken topstrap and missing half a cylinder is what mine looked like. Double load, too. Seem to remember about 26 grains of Unique. It was a FULL case, as in packed a bit, That was almost 40 years ago. I'm surprised I survived my younger days.

Yeah, but they're driving.

Perhaps you should give him a job as an air traffic controller.

Well, yes. But I had in fact known of a similar case. Just the one.

Of course, he might just have claimed it, and the pic, as his own.

From my viewpoint they seem to hate anyone who doesn't share their particular delusion.

It doesn't work. Neither does quoting scripture or saying the name of the jesus.

I'm a demon see and they cannot banish me, one would think they might question some of these 'teachings'.

Is that why Dave 111 is so damaged?

Is that why Dave didn't realise Synthia incorporated synthetic DNA?

Your vacuousness carries even more weight.

The simple fact which you ignore is the more you roam the more you see, and the more that can happen. You have been living in a tunnel for a long time. You just can't believe anything that happens outside it. Unless someone wrote it down for you to believe.

Taxi drivers and police look everywhere. Truck drivers cover a lot of territory.

You just look where you are going. You would be surprised at what you missed.

But you only know what you know. You may be in a position to notice more where you are at now. You can look around if you take the time.

The original organic life. What synthesized that? Venter didn't create synthetic life. He replaced parts in existing life. IANS, you should realize that that whole process is way too complicated for it to arise from chance.
Unless its a god you're talking about, right? Nobody needs to create those things, but simpler things need a creator. Is that your position?

Faith is such a beautiful thing, and has bought so much to the world.

My topstrap was broken a bit further back. The cylinder exploded to the top left. A hip shot would have removed my head. The barrel was also cut down. There is a half a cylinder laying somewhere in Bentonville, AR.

There is a God. He looks out for dummies.

Correct.
And scientists use extrapolations and experiments to say that DNA existed long before it was discovered.
I think you're actually starting to learn.
If the experiments say that DNA existed, it was at that point DISCOVERED dumbass. Holy shit, you're not so powerful God who is terribly flawed, didn't do a very good job with your sense of logic, but what else can you expect from a God thing that has serious limits on what he can do. Kind of a worthless God. I'll Choose CROM, at least I know he created the earth and sky.

Finding myself, or "I am" is the highest learning.

Criss Jami is full of shit, I am special, being able to do what I do better than most makes me "special" It took no effort whatsoever to "find myself" it's incredibly easy once you understand just who you really are. My Atheism played a big part in finding the truth that allowed me to discover myself, give it a try before becoming a friggin hermit!!!!

thanks for the input but I'll take the word of the American Museum of Natural History over that of a washed up football player. Kind of makes sense when you put it that way doesn't it!!!
