A challenge for Langoliers. Find one non-Christian reliable source that claims an entire rib can grow back. All bones can regenerate to some extent. In fact people can "grow" by having their legs surgically broken and devices that separate the bones are used.
It's true.

I found it on several sites.

From wiki:

Ribs
There have appeared claims that human ribs could regenerate if the periosteum, the membrane surrounding the rib, were left intact. In one study rib material was used for skull reconstruction and all 12 patients had complete regeneration of the resected rib.[41]

I'm as surprised as you.

Both that ribs can grow back and that Lango was right about something.

I don't know which is more shocking.

Here:
Insects may have consciousness and could even be able to count, claim experts:
Insects with minuscule brains may be as intelligent as much bigger animals and may even have consciousness, it was claimed today.
Having a brain the size of a pinhead does not necessarily make you less bright, say researchers.
Computer simulations show that consciousness could be generated in neural circuits tiny enough to fit into an insect's brain, according to the scientists at Queen Mary, University of London and Cambridge University.

so quit ranting..pick up your marbles..........go home and find common ground.
Evolution has evidence.

Creation, in the biblical sense, not so much.

Actually, that appears to be true.
I was surprised too.
As long as a certain part remains intact ( I forget what it's called), then the rib will regenerate.
I guess they use the rib bone for skull repair.
Somebody's a little judgeit happy.

Have you ever stopped to think that scientist could be seeing things wrong in this evolution idea?
Yes, and then I realized that the chances are very slim that scientists working in different branches, working independently of each other, could arrive at identical wrong answers.
Have you ever seen two failing test papers with identical wrong answers?

Yes, but that was before I actually studied a couple sets of evidence ... and did a lot of research on the subject. I mean, I'm not studied enough to tell you everything about it, no one is, because like any solid science it takes a lot of people doing a lot of study and research on it in order to become even close to as complete as the theory of evolution.

That's the difference between religion and science, you can make up any old thing and plug it into a religious belief system, and everyone will buy it, it's a billion dollar publishing industry. But with science you have to have a ton of people do a ton of work and get paid almost nothing for the trouble, just to get part of it correct. That's because science studies reality, and religion is just fantasy.

Then they need to get up off their lazy boys and start working on a new concept. Darwin and A.R Wallace were 1850's speculators and today genetic mutations theory is not even helping the original idea.

interesting article...never really question whether they were aware or not...it has always seemed obvious that there's an inherent consciousness of some sort, in all living creatures...
The real mystery to me, is why there would be any question of them being conscious in the first place.(?)lol

or would indoctrinated be the correct word...
So your argument is that is not by design... but that it's a random combination of events that produce structure. It has no intelligence, but it produces intelligence. It has no form but it produces form.It has no cause but it produces cause...

That it creates itself out of nothing.

And if you can buy that...I have some ocean front property in Arizona that you might be interested in.

There you go inserting presupositions like "creates" and "itself" still.

yes.

if you believe it was from some mythical thing witha bsolutely no evidence at all, then i have some ocean front property in Colorado you might be interested in.

one of our concpets has loads and loads of evidence, yours has none. not a shred, zero,. zip. big ol' goose egg. nada.

The truth is,you have no proof...only a claim of proof. On the other hand, I have a whole universe full of proof...you literally have nothing...lol

what is that proof of yours? wouldn't the universe really be proof of the scientifically learned ways that it formed? it certainly has zero proof of any intellid=gent creator.

in fact, as I clearly and truthfully stated, there is tons of evidence to suggest that yes, tht is just the ways our world formed and evolved.
