Do you have any idea how the scientific "Adam and Eve" are defined? Personally, I think they should never have used those names and give credibility to the creation myth. Anyway, they only are abstractions that trace the absolute, single common female and male ancestor of the species. It can only be done because of the unique singular donations of the male y chromosome and the mDNA from one parent only.

They have no bearing on the creation myth and there is most likely older single common ancestors that are harder to trace, although with enough research, they may be able to extract estimates on a common female ancestor based on the x chromosome someday.

Don't bother trying mysticism on subjects you don't understand. And no, I don't intend to indulge your Gish gallops. Just keep your "capricious" babble to yourself.

Any other capricious activity on this site is the product of individual nature and not due to the manifestations of science! ;)

Astrobiology?
For heavens sake!
Sound like a job where you put your feet up and chill all day...
We've already been over that, Russ. Do try to catch up.

Yes. NASA and the US Air Force (among others) do contribute to SETI. Apparently they see potential benefit for their donations. So, yes INDIRECTLY, SETI is receiving some taxpayer benefit -- but it's a stretch to say they are taxpayer funded.

Furthermore, if you feel 'astrobiology' is such a sweet job, I suggest you apply. That loud roar you will hear thereafter will be the combined laughter from the various agencies you applied for, once they peruse your application for employment.

You wouldn't make a good janitor at their facilities.

No mention of "aliens", but given so much that we DON'T know..nothing can relaly be ruled "out". Not to people with actual active brain waves anyway!!
“No culture in the history of the world, save the thoroughly depraved and expiring ones, has failed to affirm the existence of a Supreme Being. It is an empirical observation that men without a strong and lasting faith in a Supreme Being are less capable, less ethical and less valuable to themselves and society....A man without an abiding faith is, by observation alone, more of a thing than a man.”

Thanks so much for your comment But if you know anyone that has an alien inside them could you please get them to comment. I would really like to hear what they have to say, like what do the aliens eat ? or do the aliens eat the scientologest from the inside out and where do they do their number 2s? I think these are all relevant questions and the world needs to know. As I said before, no crack pots Thanks

I begged for evidence in the parallel, now defunct debate, due to every evo-god worshipper being walloped big time with evo-god's mangled carcass
May be you can get him to shrug for us
He's shrugosaurus and awfully funny!
I even peer reviewed a paper for him:

I tried to explain later on that evo-god was just trying to be 'nice' by turning the other cheek....
But as usual got the Scriptures wrong...
I got plenty of evidence. And your thread there is just you running away from everybody for seven weeks instead of dealing with it. Well done.

Which bit of the babble do you read? Because I have posted some of the verses that deny what you claim, maybe you need to read those verses too in order for you to get a complete appreciation of the book you claim to admire.
My information came from the babble which is why I posted the verse numbers and in some cased some of the wording of those verses that you are currently denying.
So what you are saying is that the babble is lying because it does not agree with your interpretation
Up to now you have provided nothing (N O T H I N G) to contradict the wording of the babble

And the OTHER thing with "opinions" vs solidified FACTS, are people are entitled to their OWN individual ones-no matter what any other UNsubstantiated full of nothing but "horsepuckey jack-a" type doodoo opinion holder thinks.

Yup! Which is EXACTLY why we have lots of fundies with baseless opinions posting in these threads. Reality however remains unaffected.

What specific factor(s) in homo sapiens evolutionary process has prevented the brains of creationists from fully evolving to the capacity of the rest of us?

I have a question :) Now we all know there are hundreds of different religions and god bless every one of them Now one of the most recent ones is "Scientology" and everyone knows they have an Alien inside them :) just your normal ever day run of the mill religion. Well, I want to know where inside the body is the little feller (the alien) living Now this is a serious discussion so no crack pots are aloud to comment, please. But where is it? Does it have a little house ? and how did it get in there? and does the poor little thing have enough room in there ? and this is the big question Why don't they (the Scientologists) talk about it any more ? I mean this answers the question "ARE WE ALONE in the universe " well no, just ask a Scientologist I would love to hear your views on the subject and maybe we can get an alien to comment I'm excited

Simple. They're not at the same latitude. But then I don't recall evolution claiming everything at the same latitude should have all the same traits.
I do recall successfully predicting your flawed method of argumentation though.
They're almost in the same latitude. How about Chinese and Indians or Russians? You know how close Tibet is to India and Pakistan. Why are their physical attributes so different from each other? What is in the environment that caused these differences?
