Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

You went over more of an edge than that one.

Never to return.

They had a link to drag racing on your link that brought back some memories.

They used to have these impromptu drag races a few miles west of Miami on a little used state road back in the 60's. After many raids someone got the idea to start staging organized drag races at an old abandoned air strip in town called Master's Field. They were all stock. Just a place for guys to take their street cars for racing. With some modifications. Like 59 English Ford Anglias with 260 Ford engines. 6 or 7 seconds was about the fastest I remember being run by anything.

That was the coolest setup. A long strip of runway with minimal equipment set up on race days. No bleachers or anything. Just bare runway. All viewing done from around the starting line. But the coolest was the night races. They had a big searchlight they pointed down the middle of the strip. The racers just followed it. That was THE lighting. Very dramatic, especially when sparks flew or engines blew.

Low tech, but so much more fun to attend than commercial sites.

Everything is such a herd event nowadays.

Oooh.
I slid that far riding on the back of one. Loose gravel on the road. Picked scabs for a long time. Also the primary reason I never had a hankering to buy one.
Did a beautiful somersault over a mountain bike's handlebars in my 40's. I didn't try jumping any more logs after that.
Do you do anything right?

Give me a high 3.

6 or 7 seconds in a quarter mile with a 260 ford?

I'm doubting that. If you multiply by two I might believe it.

How about a low 8?

No, of the other cars that ran. No traction on that light a car. I don't know if you have ever seen those old English Ford Anglias of the late 50's and early 60's. Little boxy cars. Some guys dropped Ford 260 V8's in them for kicks.

I liked those little old Anglias. Wish I had one now. Great for these little short hops to the store. Use less gas than just cranking up my Cherokee.

Here's the logic that evades you each and every time. Dinosaurs always had DNA, the question is not that dinosaurs have DNA, and it's NOT a question of them not having it until science says so, it's a question of science being unaware of DNA until it was discovered. I'll not participate in your childish word games or your attempts to twist logic to shape your own private conclusions, so conform to reason and logic or piss off, your choice!!!!
That's not what you said, Bert.

You said DNA didn't exist until they discovered it.

Are you finding yourself again?

If you sit on your hand before you whack off, it goes to sleep, then it feels like somebody else is whacking you.

Or so I've been told.

That's not what you said.

You said DNA is not observable.

Another tip - DNA doesn't have model years like cars.

Hope this is helpful, Burnt Baboon.
