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.

Absent DDT, I don't see how to stop it.

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.
I imagine handcuffs could be a problem but luckily he's already incarcerated.

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.

You are getting it wrong. Humans can make journeys to Moon, Saturn, Neptune, Mars, etc. But those planet s can not sustain lives, yes or no?

Wow that a good one “My understanding of science may be quite different
from yours,” brilliant, absolutely brilliant at showing your total
ignorance.. You not only have no idea about what science can do you are
also clueless about what science actually is. Unlike the babble, science
is specific, it is not up to you to choose how you interpret it
From your premise, all scientist are atheist. Is that statement correct?

Im not arguing. We are clearly the most intelligent animal around. Many
animals are the best at something or other. So what? You obviously have a
big forebrain compared to most animals giving you the ability to make
greater abstractions. None of that means you have an immortal soul.
Quite the opposite in fact...its that lump of tissue in your skull, not
any invisible magical soul, that makes you special.
The problem is that this lump of tissue knows it has an expiry date and
its afraid of that, so it invents all kinds of baloney to avoid facing
reality.
You have answered the question that has been bringing the arguments, humans remains the most intelligents of all living things. For the others, i think it is faith. I know that anything can not just spring up without a cause or maker( designer).

Ehm no. Science: the intellectual and practical activity encompassing
the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and
natural world through observation and experiment.
You fall down in the first couple of words
Back again to my question, are all scientist atheist?
Yes, like i said, science is a complements of God's work, why? Science can not really answer all man's pressing problems, they can only remedy that.

Thats 4.

Estimated planets in the observable universe = 10 to the power of 24. 1 followed by 24 zeroes. Thats more planets than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of the world. Now unless you claim to be God yourself, you cannot possibly know how many could harbour life.

Great rebuttal
<quoted text>
Assuming there is a God, and assuming that his realm is not limited to
just Earth, but the entire universe. Now take into consideration the
size of the universe. Are you inferring that God is responsible for the
management of every single human's life here on Earth, every single
interaction, and the planning of every single life and death, as well as
any other potential being in the universe? This must keep him pretty
busy. What about the guy in Texas who was struck by lightning twice
yesterday. Was this part of God’s agenda?
From your statements, not all scientist will buy into your idea. Get a clue on fallacy. Beliefs has nothing to do with science.
