<quoted text>I never said that propylene has anything to do with life. You know I didn't. This is just you trying to redirect things away from admitting you made a mistake and jumped to a conclusion. Show where I did. Come on gutless. Bring on the evidence.
I can keep posting what I said and you can keep running from the truth. We can make a game of it if you like. In fact that seems to be your game.
Your right. Oh wait you said "That is an organic chemical that would at least indicate the possibility of other building blocks of our kind of life. However, it doesn't have to be carbon based."

"the possibility of other building blocks of our kind of life"

LMAO go to bed.

<quoted text>See davy. This is a classic example of how he evades direct response to a point. He called you the spell checker. You claim that spell check wouldn't work on correctly spelled words. Now he is trying to throw his error back on you. See the difference.
This one is sort schizo. Sometimes he seems halfway intelligent and other times, he is batshit insane. Bipolar would be my guess.
LMAO. I said "I never blamed spell check,,, I called you the spell checker. See the difference?"

How is that blaming him. OH Davy be my friend, this replaytime is a bad guy and I am all alone. LMMFAO

Yes I am right and you are still deflecting and avoiding.

You can LMAO all you want. What I said said does not call propylene a building block of life. It calls it an organic chemical. You poor thing. It is a terrible weakness you have that you refues recognize your own fallibility.

Still waiting for that evidence of your other claim about being here since March. I know you can't provide it because it is another lie, but I will give you the courtesy to wait anyway.

Of course you will never, ever produce the posts you claim I made confessing to this. Since they don't exist, I can't imagine how you could. But, hey you are a consummate liar so I wouldn't expect you to do more than flap your cyber gums.
Yep I can tell you didn't read it all. Because the drinking quote was in the "LAST" sentence. What a tard. LMFAO.

So you don't think the existence of organic compounds might indicate the possibility of other organic compounds like those that are the building blocks of life. Why did you bring up propylene in the first place then?

Now where is the evidence for those other claims? How many posts of you dancing do you think you will have to make before you think I will tire of asking?

Ah yes, malign me again, but don't dare address my questions directly. That would mean admitting you are a steaming pile of lies. Very much your go to position when cornered.

Still waiting for that evidence to support your lies. Maybe if you click your heels together they will appear out of nowhere Dorothy. Don't bother claiming that is your line either. I used it long before you showed up on Topix.

I believe that is what my post said. More maligning but now evidence. You really hate it when you get caught in your lies by somebody sharp enough not to fall for your bullshit. It must suck to be you.

I'm am going to bed. Replay, I suggest you double up on that evening dose of lithium. The regular dose doesn't seem to be helping.

I will leave you to dream about your many battlefield victories with the fighting respiratory therapists.

It virtually proves that they were not buried "in place" where they grew, but rather were uprooted and re-buried where they were found. The fossils themselves are evidence of a catastrophe such as a flood or volcanic eruption that took place in the past.
Wiki leaves this part out....
Have you tried reading the article?

"Geologists who have studied upright fossils found in sedimentary rocks exposed in various outcrops for the last 30 years have described the upright fossil trees as being deeply rooted in place and typically rooted in recognizable paleosols. This is in sharp contrast to the claims made by creationists such as Harold Coffin and N. A. Rupke. Geologists, such as Falcon[10][11][12][13][14] and Rygel et al.,[15] have published detailed field sketches and pictures of upright tree fossils with intact root systems, which are rooted within recognizable paleosols. In case of the upright fossil trees of the Yellowstone petrified forests, geologists – again in sharp disagreement with creationists like Harold Coffin – found that the upright fossil trees, except for relatively short stumps, are rooted in place within the underlying sediments. Typically, the sediments within which trees are rooted have paleosols developed within them.[9][16][17] Either pictures or diagrams of the Yellowstone upright fossil trees having intact root systems developed within paleosols found within these strata have been published in Retallack (1981, 1997).[16][17][18]"

"The older bulls generally lose or “drop” their antlers first, usually late December or early January, with the remaining bulls following this process until as late as March. "
Interesting, I used alternative info from “Deer Antlers: Regeneration, Function and Evolution” By Richard J Goss

I don’t care what you asked or not, I can prove it so what you claim you know is irrelevant to fact, irrelevant to biology and irrelevant to physics. So basiclly nothing more that self delusion or lies

That's not actually true - from the Neanderthal genome project :
According to preliminary sequences, 99.7% of the base pairs of the modern human and Neanderthal genomes are identical
are you lying for jesus?
Base pairs are the building blocks of DNA, but not DNA and as I stated “The average person is around 4% Neanderthal by DNA” then either you accusation of lies is irrelevant or you do not understand the science

I admit that I did quote one of the upper figures I have seen (not the highest though), See http://blog.23andme.com/ancestry/find-your-in...

"Most people have Neanderthal DNA, on average about 2.5 percent," according to 23andMe. "

See also http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn18869-n... puts it between 1 and 4%

and http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/...

And http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive... , the author claims he is 5% Neanderthal

FYI, I have no god or jesus to lie for and I find lying abhorrent.

Here is a link to the video version of that same song:

Interesting side note. Both of those girls have been on the TV show "The Big Bang Theory". The blonde was a red haired grad student who helped Sheldon on one of his papers and the brunette was the girl who made it possible for Koothrappalli to speak to women without drinking.

I don't think I can help on questions about the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy.

Wrong, every point is fact and every point you ignore.

Including the multiple references in the babble for some odd reason.

It’s almost as though you can only see the bits (small bits) of the babble that agree with you own beliefs. Tell me, you would not happen to be christian would you?
