"Won?!?!"

Bubba, SCP was never in the game.

SCP is more like the mutt that ran onto the field, took a crap on the 40-yard line, and ran off under the stands.

SCP isn't even a theory, is it? sounds more like the crap made up at the end of a bar before closing time...

SCP theory is right as rain and it can wash away the mess evolution has made.

"...right as rain", eh?

You don't even know enough about your own (Non)"theory" to be able to provide a decent explanation of it.

You just regurgitate a few pastel-colored, school-girl philosophical platitudes, and think you're a shoe-in for the next Nobel Prize.

SCP is not a theory. It's not even a decent wet dream.

Nope, don't expect any prize, but if there was one given to the people that caused this theory, a lot of people here should get it.

Great, you too? Are you still trying to sell this whole systems and cycles nonsense? What exactly are you trying to describe to us, that systems and cycles exist? Of course they exist. That systems and cycles are exploited by man for our own benefit? Of course they are. So FS/KLV, please, take a moment and elaborate a bit. I’m sitting, and listening. The stage is yours.

So, we agree on the fact that systems and cycles and patterns is the way nature works in general, correct?

Okay, so now you are saying that your god is only as powerful as a computer. That sort of makes your god weak, since, well, pretty much everyone with any tech savvy knows what you just posted.
You totally missed the simple point I was making.A 4 year old would have seen the point.

Stung? Hardly. You have a vastly overblown sense of your own self-importance.

I have been trying to find others who understand the simple fact that in all situations where natural systems are observed, cycling happens with them. It is also observable that every natural system will follow a pattern. Now, if we can say this is a true principle, we can give explanations as to the whys and wherefores from our own perspectives here and propose a theory.

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

Jump to: navigation, search Systems theory is the interdisciplinary study of systems in general, with the goal of elucidating principles that can be applied to all types of systems at all nesting levels in all fields of research.[citation needed] The term does not yet have a well-established, precise meaning, but systems theory can reasonably be considered a specialization of systems thinking, a generalization of systems science, a systems approach. The term originates from Bertalanffy's general system theory (GST) and is used in later efforts in other fields, such as the action theory of Talcott Parsons[1] and the social systems theory of Niklas Luhmann.[2]

In this context the word systems is used to refer specifically to self-regulating systems, i.e. that are self-correcting through feedback. Self-regulating systems are found in nature, including the physiological systems of our body, in local and global ecosystems, and in climate—and in human learning processes.

Great! You should therefore have no trouble in providing the mathematical formula which unequivocally objectively demonstrates universal creation via invisible Jewish magic-poofing.
(Dude watches tumbleweed roll by in the wind)
In contrast, you will provide proof that the advanced mathematical formulas of the universe were randomly created by invisible number naturalists who themselves were randomly created by random supervisors of randomness. LOl.

Your random creation by non living matter is found wanting which means one should look elsewhere.

“The argument has been repeatedly made that given sufficient time, a genetic instruction set and language system could have arisen. But extended time does not provide an explanatory mechanism for spontaneously generated genetic instruction. No amount of time proposed thus far, can explain this type of conceptual communication system. It is not just complex. It is conceptually complex.”

Nope, you're still not exlaining cycling patterned natural systems.

No.

The "advanced mathematical formulas" of which you speak are created by humans. To describe observed effects in the Universe.

Which they do, with ever-increasing accuracy.

You sorta skipped math as well as science, didn't you?

Though they could have been created by God and man learned them.
You sorta skipped logic ,right?

"The genetic code turns out to be a syntactic structure of arithmetic, the result of unique summations that have been carried out by some primordial abacus at least three and half billion years ago."

Mathematician and geneticist Vladimir Shcherbak.

The mathematician Roger Penrose dismisses the idea that the success of mathematics can be attributed to its survival value, and attributes the accord between mathematics and physics to the underlying rationality of the world. That would explain why Nobel-winning quantum physicist Paul Dirac said,“God is a mathematician of a very high order.”

Meh. He also believes that DNA is a decimal system.{shrug}
