So, NEXT time you produce REAL jokes, so we may smile a bit.
And don't hide yourself behind having produced jokes when you didn't.

You don't see scientists admitting that they're wrong (or maybe wrong) very often:

Don't rock the boat and stop the gravy train in grants. To bad there is politically correct science :( To bad the computer models on global warming don't match the results :)

Maybe wrong. Seems still in dispute.

"For weeks, some scientists have expressed doubts about the findings of the BICEP2 team."
Weeks?

Religion isn't even capable of getting rid of ITS caboodle for 4,100 years or so.

Science by it's very nature is admitting it maybe wrong , or incomplete, this is why it is subjected to peer review and the method used to obtain the results are open to others.
It was this very thing that discovered why faster than the speed of light results were found to be faulty equipment. As with this project the European Space Agency is performing the same tests to confirm or dispute the results found here.

But this admission of fallibility is the strength to finding the truth, and why many times something else is discovered than originally intended. So don't say scientists don't say they maybe wrong, because they already think that from the start. Historically a few scientists couldn't accept they were wrong, and kept trying to prove they were right. But this is not the consensus that is sought to begin with and sometimes the persistence pays off and it's found they were right after all.

<quoted text>Why is it such a hard thing to see that life was made in kinds from the beginning? The Bible claims that there is nothing new under the sun and living things all multiply after their own kind. No real transition is or has occurred from one kind to another or we would see it everywhere. I know there has been oddities and deformed creatures that may look like something other than their own kind, but they do not reproduce to become a totally new kind.
There seems to be nothing difficult in adopting the puerile notion that "The Bible says it, I believe it and that settles it." (..or my preacher says it, or AiG says it or the Discovery Institute says it....) Certainly, it must be leaps and bounds easier than engaging in any critical thinking for yourself. I'll bet that must be a real load off of your shoulders... Thank God. 0.o

But that's not the analogy Cristina, no one is insinuating that the spoon was designed to be lethal, rather it cannot be held responsible for making you fat. That's the comparison.(Ergo,'Guns don't kill... Spoons don't fatten...')The whole 'killed by spoon' was just an adage on my part, because, well,'killed by spoon'. lol.
Ahh but our dear replaytime (to whom my first post on the subject was in reply to) was comparing the spoon and the gun. True they are both tools but as I have said, unlike the spoon, the gun was developed, designed and manufactured for one purpose... to kill.
Of course spoons were also designed for one specific purpose too but can be used to kill and have been.

Are you going with the "stand" that death proves God? Then by your own petard war, starvation, accidents and disease are holy while peace, food, safety and health are tools of Satan.

I wasn't trying to "get" you. I already do that. You routinely catch yourself with your own illogical statements.

Don't stand on your myth's shoulders or his coat-tails. It does nothing to change the evidence and it probably ticks him off..
