Interesting
I read that the first entity to get the electric chair for murder was an elephant named Topsy for killing her handlers/mistreaters. Their “training” of her involved stubbing cigarettes out on her tongue.
Doesn't appear to be the first but a true story:

Hmm.. In responding to Charles you're playing a little fast and loose with the term "we". He's toying with the idea that travellingy faster than the Earth rotates is time travel. I'm waiting for him to bring up the scientific theory of "my left is your right".
I piss off enough fundies as it is without deliberately insulting them. Might as well be inclusive where possible.:-)

Aw, poo on that.
Q. If an infinite number of monkeys over an infinite period of time could write the Complete Works of Shakespeare, how many monkeys would it take to write the complete works of any given fundie poster?

In answer to the questions of our dominance that were posed on this forum recently, I think we may very well be, but only at the leisure of the microbial world and once in a while, they have to remind us who is boss.
Dengue's endemic in the Keys now, and shows signs of spreading North.

Interesting you bring this up. I just watched "Blackfish" the other night.(Well, most of it before I nodded off). It addresses this exact point. In particular, Tilikum, the Orca who killed Dawn Brancheau at Sea World in Orlando a few years ago. He is also a suspect in two other deaths.

That's the point, the juice HAS been gone for years. All they did was put a bigger label on the bottle so the fundies could't see that it was empty and say "Hey, look at this great bottle of juice!"

religious cults can get people to believe there a spaceship waiting for them behind a comet or even that there was a global flood in the time of humans...

there is no end to what you can make people believe when they want to be told what to believe....

I was aware that the right vector mosquito species can be found in the south, but I didn't know that Dengue had gotten that far north. Going to put a lot of perspective on global warming.

So you don’t think you god made you special, then why all this ignorance about animal intelligence?
God made all humans special, the problem with some of us like you, is nothing but ignorance. Human intelligence is always higher.
