Wow. If I'm mistaken, then correct me. If we evolved from apes, then there was a real chewbacca sometime in the past, or do you prefer elite ape? lol
a dose of humor. everyone needs it.
Yep we are still apes.
In 'human origin' i tried to amass any and all relevant studies.(not done yet)Since the question keeps returning.
None ever said it's easy material, you do need to study.
But you're up to it.

Like your fish joke though.

Yup. He was punished for fighting God, and even matching his magic with his own. So either God is playing both sides like an evil sob, or God is not God.
I prefer to think of "God" as a passive acceptance of fate, but an iron will to challenge its minutia until you can redirect it. I don't really agree with it. It's a bit kamikaze in its abstraction, but that is the nature of religion. Make the dumb bunnies your willing martyrs. Claim all all good fortune as destiny.

Charles didn't write those words. If you're playing a "you're either with us or against us" angle, that's still not very popular on this side of the pond.

Do recall your own post! Paraphrased:Half the people on these evo board are hidden homo-sexuals...blabla...not owning up etc.
Otherwise it's going entirely stupid.
As far as i'm concerned address your posts to Charles Idemi since that seemed to be the goal in the first place.
Yes, the operative word being "or". You can't reduce the factual evidence to match your world view. Facts are what they are. I would think an advocate of science would certainly KNOW better!

The Way is a void,
Used but never filled:
An abyss it is,
From which all things come.
You didn't watch it and did not see why it is not a superstitious belief but a scientific one. The how is the big difference.

No, we are a species of ape, and we share the same ancestors as other apes, chimps, and monkeys.

Not too much, and it has been almost 30 years since I lived in Minnesota, you know before global warming when it used to be cold in the winter.

No this is not intended to be a big complement but you can't be from that range. You're too intelligent for that. The iron range is like West Virginia. Shudders......,

Hardly "political science". He can back up his claims with real science. It might be a bit difficult to understand, and the real science would take years to understand, but it is real science nonetheless.

So if you don't like the science, it's "political." That's sort of ... well ... stupid.

Yes I know I was about to tell you that but SZ beat me into it.

I was talking about hominid species, what's wrong with calling them more ape like?

like I said before... a true void would contain no laws of physics.

so your argument of physics, producing anything out of a true void is a contradiction.

I had a mechanical engineer roommate from da range. He was not the brightest student, but he did okay. Of course he left the area. It has probably gotten worse over the years.
