As badly as you want to think of men that was not the cause. Bush meat makes much more sense than bestiality.

Nice article. It does bring up good point.
"why aren't adults of each species found in lower strata than juveniles of the same species?"
It really is simple. Dead carcasses of the same species have the same density so the settle in the mud the same.
"This factor predicts that the largest animals should be found on the bottom"
It's density not size that determines the settling of the carcasses.
Good article though. Unlike flushing bob.
Sorry Mags, but you've already tripped yourself up on this one. First you claimed man and dino walked together because of fossil evidence and then you claimed that man and dinos aren't found together because of "density sorting". You can't have it both ways. And if you have evidence that tiny little fish and trilobites are heavier than massive dinosaurs, and evidence of 1 ton turtles that are lighter than tiny dinosaurs I'd love to hear it.

Of course even you know that evidence is irrelevant when your position is Goddidit with magic. Because as far as you're concerned it doesn't matter what the evidence looks like, whether it swings right or left, up or down - Goddidit with magic no matter what.

You would then have to find a preserved one then wouldn't you?
Turtle were in little danger from the flood. They did not die in mass numbers from the flood. So you will not find them with the dinosaurs.
Why not? We have sea-dwelling dinosaurs that apparently have undergone the same "density-sorting" as the rest. Same with fish and trilobites. Plus turtles die of natural causes anyway, so their carcasses would have been "sorted" with everything else.

Of course EVERYTHING would have been in danger from the flood. Even Noah. You propose that TRILLIONS of tons of mass was all moving simultaneously world-wide very violently non-stop for a minimum of 40 days and nights.

I love watching Creationists attempt to prove evolution wrong...it's comical really :3

When I see how bad Creationists lose in these types of arguments I always find myself wondering how amusing it'd be to see them try to debate Richard Dawkins :3

Good idea. Let's have a jokefest.

Why did the Creationist cross the road?
He didn't. His mommy wasn't there to hold his hand.

How many Creationists does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. Creationists use candles.

Why are Creationists afraid to travel?
They might fall off the end of the world.

That my dear little moron is a phrase, not a word, the difference is that a phrase consists of 2 or more words with spaces between.

When you learn the difference between a word and a phrase you will have learned something.

WTF has this to do with the origin of the English language? Oh I know, you are once again trying to obfuscate the issue.

So it has nothing to do with the fact that those countries were once colonised by English speaking peoples.

<quoted text>Still dreaming in ignorance. English was first spoken in England.
Your grasp of history is abysmal and you still have NOT clarified which question you want answering or whether you will change the question again when it is answered.

Some (SOME) English words were first spoken in England some in what is now France, some in Germany, Some in the low countries, some in Italy. Some of those words were first spoken in the Middle East. I have given you several examples to show my point and you ignore them because in your dreams you believe only you can be right.

After all the months of discussion, showing you links to academic papers etc you still have not learned that language is dynamic

Even the word English is not English but a derivation of Angle

Look
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England
quote
The area now called England was first inhabited by modern humans during the Upper Palaeolithic period, but it takes its name from the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes who settled during the 5th and 6th centuries. England became a unified state in 927 AD, and since the Age of Discovery, which began during the 15th century, has had a significant cultural and legal impact on the wider world.[8] The English language, the Anglican Church, and English law - the basis for the common law legal systems of many other countries around the world - developed in England

I have a question that may not be exactly on topic, but it does raise a concern. Ever since I entered this topic on Topix a month ago, the ads that appear in my browser are mostly Christian related. My concern is not so much the privacy issue (although it should be, I mean really – wtf?) it is the fact that on every page I browse, there’s a big ad asking "Do you believe in God? Click here for 6 reasons to believe". Now here’s my gripe. What does whoever the owner of this ad have to gain if I believe in God? Why has this person or group, who certainly have incurred reasonable costs to be my personal number 1 ad, gone out of their way to prove to me that God exists? What do they expect to gain from this? Financial gain, or just to strengthen their following? I am truly bemused by their need to prove to me that God exists on every website that I visit. This is what I find the most repellent about some true believers. They are not happy in just their own faith, they feel the need to go out of their way to convince me that I too MUST believe. Why do they take it upon themselves to "sell" this belief to others? I am already comfortable with my own religious beliefs thank you, no need to sell me on an opinion or belief that I might not share.

i believe the ads are not the same for everyone, they are based upon the pages here you visit and other sites that you are tracked going to.

i tend to get mainly political based ads as i only post from the US politics page...

as far as the selling of religious cults, any business that doesn't keep a growing customer base will soon be out of business. and religion is the worlds second oldest business, nothing more.

I get the Neanderthal ad too. I noticed that the ads were based upon what other sites you visit after I saw an ad for a portable induction cook top on late night TV. The ad of course made it look to good to be true, and you could get it for only 4 payments of $33.33! But, just for you we will lower it to 3 payments of $33.33 ( I wonder how many people could not do the math and did not see that one coming from a mile away ) plus you get another one free! <just pay shipping and handling> plus more plus more etc. Anyway, it was a neat device so I Google searched it, found out that it was real and finally contacted the company. I asked straight out how much this $100.00 for two portable induction cookers with all of the free stuff would come to when all of the shipping and handling was added. It was about $240.00

Needless to say I did not buy one from them. I did keep looking and bought one from a reputable firm, just one not tow for one, That had a first time customer discount of 30%. Their price was the same as Amazon's and I saved 30% off of that.

Ever since I went to that companies site, the so called 2 for 1, I have seen their add on this site here. They must have some very persistent cookies.
