So by the theory of evolution...wouldn't are distance ancestors be plants?
and what is the evolutionary purpose of "apes" growing flowers?

But maybe, a subconscious link to our distance cousins?

Christine M has allready pointed out that E=Mc^2 is the law that governs our existence.
Therefore we are.
Define god as: A source of limetless energy and so would make our existence impossible. E would no longer be defined as it is, nor would we be!

So that definition is out.
That's not a law it's a theory and a failed theory at that. GR has been a proven failure in regards to Singularity's.

A theory that does not work everywhere in the universe needs to be modified.

A virus is not considered alive. Technically.

I've seen the video.

You could have fooled me.

So they also learned to play dead!

and how many people was that?...I seen the shows. But if you know anything about human nature, people who do art like to be recognized for they create,and to suggest that out of the many, many number of crop circles around the world there would be so few that would stand up and take credit for their creation is just more than a little out of proportion...don't ya think?

Actually it was General relativity that predicted singularities. no one ever thought of black holes until the theory predicted them...

facts are fun!

Besides, science has drugs for that. So there's no need for flowers.

I could maybe beleive some advanced aliens millions or billions of years ago came and seeded life here. And set about evolution. So that is only case for creation that makes any sense. But some all powerfull god figure creating things is just flat out INSANE......
