Humans are the only dominant species on earth( the only habitable plabnet). No matter how powerful a lion or whale is, they can be tamed by humans.

Do you think that exempts us from being one of them?
We have hands with thumbs capable of making things, that makes us the creators here, but we are also destroyers.
We can destroy them and us, maybe they are better off without us?

No matter how intelligent and powerful man becomes..nature can tame us. Nature of the beast, sorry you assume our intelligence makes us something we are not. We are just intelligent animals, not so bright sometimes, but consciousness makes our guilt of our shortcomings known too. We are but lucky apes on a world we need to help to carry on, but we still do not know how to do that much.

After f-ing up most everything we touched...can we fix it?
Our most wonderful inventions maybe the worst things ever for us. What can we do as the only dominant species to correct our stupidity? One thing is for sure Charles, god ain't gonna help.

It is late at night so I will give you the answer.
Bob Robertson is a pseudonym that Sergio Leone used in the past. "A Fistful of Dollars" was originally released in America as being directed by "Bob Robertson". That was a tribute to his father and a nod to the fact that Americans were not quite ready for films directed by furreners, especially cowboy movies.
Now off the top of your head can you name what movie "A Fistful of Dollars" was a remake of? Can you name the latest version of that movie? The interesting thing about these three movies is that you could still make a watchable movie by stringing random scenes from the movies together, as long as you kept the order and timing correct. They all have almost exactly the same plot. They are merely set in three different locations.
As I said he tried to use the name Bob Robertson but it never caught on. Fistful of Dollars credits from the movie itself. Just skip ahead to 1:57.


As for the newest remake with the same plot that I know of, it starred Bruce Willis and was called Last Man Standing.

What was a Fistful of Dollars was a remake of, donít know that one.

And here we see the difference between science and religion.
When faced with the mystery of the moons recession the religious proclaim it proves God and are content in their ignorance.
Scientists instead are delighted because there's a new mystery that needs to be solved, and solved it they have.
The moon's recession is caused by the tides especially where they meet shallow seas which causes friction.
In the distant past there were less daily tides. This is because the moon goes round the earth in the same direction as the earth rotates. So when the moon was closer it circled the earth quicker resulting in less difference between months and days and hence less tides.
Another important point is the movement of the continents due to plate tectonics.
At present the arrangement of the continents create barriers to the tides (North and south America. Europe and Africa) causing a great deal of tidal friction. In the past where the continent were joined together into one or spread out more, the tidal friction was less.
The mistake young earth creationist make here is to presume tidal forces are a constant and have never changed. They're not, and they have.
If the moon was closer much of earth's habitable area would be awash! Worse than that our unstable plate system would come apart from the stress.(A system unique in our solar system) My point was that uniform rates more often than not seriously challenge long age dating assumptions with observable measurements. I don't see how that's religious, or is it because it makes evolutionists uncomfortable? Russ Humphreys go it right using reasonable assumptions based on rock solid observations and
his predictions proved it out. We should thank God for our beautiful blue planet and solar system, it's no accident.

He said "humans remains the dominant species". At in your example of "some insect species dominate other insect species." Guess what we do or can dominate all those insect species.

so humans are not the only dominant species, as i stated...

Ok you want to be an idiot no problem.

Name a species that dominates humans.

Name a species that could destroy humans.

Name species that humans could not dominate or destroy if they wanted to.

no need to. i already pointed out another species that is dominant.

logic seems to be beyond your capabilities. why do you continue to try? i certainly give you an a+ for effort, but an F- for content and execution.

The earth and moon formed about 4.6 billion years ago.
Single celled Life didn't start until about 3.8 billion years ago.
Multicellular life didn't appear until about 1 billion years ago.
Simple animals (in the sea) about 600 million years ago.

So by the time animals appear the moon is a lot further away and the tide weaker and less disruptive.

Which still does not address that humans are the dominate species over all others which was what he first stated.
