Well that's the problem isn't it?

Whoever proposes it as a scientific hypothesis must be able to make some kind of scientific predictions based on that hypothesis that can be tested. If they can't then the hypothesis must be refined until that can finally happen.

No-one on Earth has been able to do that with the 'God hypothesis' for millenia.

Just wondering, any relation to Six of Nine?

If I ask the question "What is an example of a commonly accepted delusion?", Creation is a valid answer.

Any number lower than zero on a number line is an unreal number. This corresponds to a biblical date line in that many accounts lower than 33 AD are also unreal.

none was needed to be specified, as there is no evidence for any god, gods, or goddesses ever. anywhere. in all the history of man... not one shred.

Sounds like what I need. This site does chew up a lot. And I am on the cable with my own wireless hot spot. Even when I'm plugged directly in it still takes forever for this site to load.

GF installed it and this site is waaaaaay faster. i'll have to try using my phone hotspot to see how much bandwith it takes now. i was on this site for a few hours each morning for three days while at the cabin and my phone told me i had used 75% of my 6 gigs for the month! i usually use @ 1.5/month.

Thanx Christine, my ignorance of all things interwebby is quite staggering...

Yes, few of them seem to realise that we not only accept different things as true, but we have a different process for accepting that anything is true. The funniest example is when someone trots out here and confidently proclaims that Darwin recanted on evolution on his deathbed. As if it would matter! They think it should matter to evolutionists, and we know why it does not matter one iota. The truth or falseness of the death bed story is not even relevant.
Ah yes, as if science would throw its collective arms in the air and say, "Well I guess that is it for us". "Back to the Bronze Age." "The physicists are making bows, the geologists are knapping flint and making pots, the zoologists are out hunting, the botanist are gathering nuts and berries and we left the entomologist to shovel out the night soil". "It's because I study dung beetles isn't it?"

The Darwin recantation is an excellent example that illustrates the vast gap in understanding that creationists and others have with science. The childishness and fear that went into making up the recantation story also illustrate a lack of understanding and conviction that many creationists have for their own beliefs.

I had to look this up as well. Very nice zoo.

The rhinos are impressive animals. Always a favorite of mine, but my zoo doesn't have so many. Seeing an animal of that size and power is intimidating in a way even from behind a barrier. Mammals have come a long way from the small creatures running around the feet of the dinosaurs.

Ice fishing. Hmmm. Never tried it. It gets cold here, but we are far enough south that it does get cold enough to make that a regular sport.

I think it is the adds. Something causes my flash player to crash all the time and it slows me down even more. This is one of the slowest sites I visit and also one of the most add-laden.

Good luck fishing and getting the cabin in shape.

yeah, i have issues with zoos, i'm certainly not a PETA member or anything like that, but i haven't been able to enjoy going to a zoo for over a decade now. seeing those beautiful animals that roamed the vast savannahs or plains or woods freely, or even the oceans, stuck in little cages or a couple of acres of habitat or what is basically a fishbowl for the latter just makes me feel sorry for them. like a jailor instead of an interested viewer. not sure if we actually need zoos with today's ability for all to view these great animals in the wild.

just my take on it...

fishing hard water is a blast! early ice is some of the best fishing of the year. our family cabin is on the chain of lakes where this takes place every year:

icefishing.org

check the photos under media and press. insane party on the ice!

try the ad blocker Christine suggested, it works great, and speeds up the site by orders of magnitude...
