You must be so proud that one of your slime bottom suckers that get naked to make money has a high IQ.
Well one of my country's members solves a math problem that no one else could.
You sound so envious! You are stuck with the mad god and we have the goodies!

What a cheap shot. Scientist...not in a million years.

According to scores on tests designed to measure high intelligence, it is reported that Rosner has one of the world’s highest IQs. In 1985, it is also reported that he scored 44 out of 48 on Ron Hoeflin’s Mega Test, the second-highest score among the nearly 4,000 people who took the test. In 1990, he received a perfect score on Hoeflin’s equally difficult Titan Test [18] and, in 1991, scored 47 in a second attempt at the Mega Test. His combined scores indicate an adult (deviation) IQ in the mid- to high-190s [19][20][21][22] From 1991 to 1997, Rosner was editor of Noesis, the journal of the Mega Society, an organization open to people who have scored at the one-in-a-million level on tests of general intelligence. Rosner has stated he hopes to top Evangelos Katsioulis, whose IQ score of 198 is the highest certified score.[23]

WTF?

you barely have a 2nd grade underswtanding of science. you have made some of the most ignorant statements about science i have ever heard right here on these pages?

No, you certainly do not "do alright"[sic] in science in any sense of the term...

You denying the positive assertion doesn't make it unreal.
When the assertion is made with zero evidence, the only sane thing to do is deny it. You'd have to be insane to accept Spiderman exists just because a book is written about him.

Took me ages to find the proper form.
I keep confusing Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan and Italian.
Latin is less confusing. That's a good thing because some bloke with airs, figured it would be a good idea to use that as language of first choice to translate Luvian in.
ARHA uhhh?? had to look that up, but i first thought it was part of the language!?
For quite a few centuries, Latin was of course the international language of science.

I still kinda miss it...

And one thing he would agree with us on is that Langoliers is full of crap"
And my joke was Langan was me Langoliers.
Further down in the post you started talking about Alan.
Oh by the way Alan who?
You are clearly not Langan, despite the similarity in names. He is not an idiot. You are. He does not believe in a personal god, you do.

As I said, he would think you are full of crap. No one is falling for your delusion.

I hear all of these idiot creatards claiming that they live these fantastic lives. For some reason I don't believe them. Now it may be possible to have a nice house, car, and even a wife that is not make the dogs bark ugly, but it is extremely unlikely.

Hmmmm...what happened to that millions of years bullshit?
Not at all. Dogs ADAPTING to their environment is evidence of adaptation, not evolution or the model.

The fact that many breeds are, well, CREATED, specifically argues against evolution.

Adaptation is not evidence of positive mutations at all. Not even the evolutionists assert this, only the foolish layman that does not understand the model would make such a dumb error.

<quoted text>no, it predicted they would evolve faster.and they have. more of that evidence you say doesn't exist.
No, it doesn't.

Using adaptation or natural changes that are not from mutations as evidence of evolution would be fraud.

And that is what you are attempting.

Please tell us about your mythology.
You don't seem to have sufficient gravitas to have discovered that modern day science is wrong and you know how and why that is. Do you have science degrees in ALL the relevant fields that somehow impact on evolutionary theory??
Perhaps you could take some time and write up a paper on how wrong today's scientific take on evolution is. All you're doing here is stating that, in your opinion, this science is ALL wrong. We need details.
Science has already stated it's opinion and provided proof, we need to see yours proof.
I have no mythology.

Modern day science does not support evolution, no more than science supported flat-earth.

I have no need to write a paper. The evolutionary model is not supported by science. They have been looking for a viable model for 150 years ... still not found.

Science does not have an opinion. Unless, perhaps, you have some mythology of some deity known as "Science" that you would like to ell us about?

i look at evidence and rationally decide whether to agree with it or not.
you can't even get those terms right, just parroting what you heared otheres say without checking the veradcity of the argument. you sir, seem to be the fanatic.
Indeed, nice try.

"a religious fanatic buys onto a cult with no evidence whatsoever."

You are deliberately, and with dishonesty, mixing "religion" and "cult" into the same sentence, as if they are interchangeable.

Nice try indeed. We can now safely count you out from all future rational and logical discussions.

Lie.

A SMALL sample of scientific organizations that support the teaching of Evolution in public schools:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scientif...

The American Association for the Advancement of Science is the world's largest general scientific society. The AAAS serves some 262 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving 10 million individuals. A 2002 statement states: "[T]he lack of scientific warrant for so-called 'intelligent design theory' makes it improper to include as a part of science education."[1]
A 2006 statement on the teaching of evolution: "Some bills seek to discredit evolution by emphasizing so-called "flaws" in the theory of evolution or "disagreements" within the scientific community. Others insist that teachers have absolute freedom within their classrooms and cannot be disciplined for teaching non-scientific “alternatives” to evolution. A number of bills require that students be taught to "critically analyze" evolution or to understand "the controversy." But there is no significant controversy within the scientific community about the validity of the theory of evolution. The current controversy surrounding the teaching of evolution is not a scientific one."[2]

American Association of University Professors is an organization of professors and other academics in the United States. AAUP membership is about 47,000, with over 500 local campus chapters and 39 state organizations.[4] "deplores efforts in local communities and by some state legislators to require teachers in public schools to treat evolution as merely a hypothesis or speculation, untested and unsubstantiated by the methods of science, and to require them to make students aware of an "intelligent-design hypothesis" to account for the origins of life. These initiatives not only violate the academic freedom of public school teachers, but can deny students an understanding of the overwhelming scientific consensus regarding evolution."[5]

American Astronomical Society is an American society of professional astronomers and other interested individuals, with over 7,000 members and six divisions. "Intelligent Design" fails to meet the basic definition of a scientific idea: its proponents do not present testable hypotheses and do not provide evidence for their views that can be verified or duplicated by subsequent researchers. Since "Intelligent Design" is not science, it does not belong in the science curriculum of the nation’s primary and secondary schools."[9]

American Chemical Society is a scientific society that supports scientific inquiry in the field of chemistry, with more than 164,000 members at all degree-levels and in all fields of chemistry, chemical engineering, and related fields. It is the world's largest scientific society and one of the leading sources of authoritative scientific information.[10] "urges... State and local education authorities to support high-quality science standards and curricula that affirm evolution as the only scientifically accepted explanation for the origin and diversity of species."[11]

American Geophysical Union The AGU represents over 43,000 Earth and space scientists. "Advocates of intelligent design believe that life on Earth is too complex to have evolved on its own and must therefore be the work of a designer. That is an untestable belief and, therefore, cannot qualify as a scientific theory." [12]
