And the African Grey Parrot has proven to understand human language and talk in our language.
So you think African Grey Parrots are Satan too ?

I had a cockatiel that would growl like the dog. Birds can be just too comical.
Oh ya, he's funny as hell. When the phone rings, he says "hellooo?"

Sometimes he rings Hus own phone, says hello, then pretends he's having a conversation with someone.

He'll scream a loud, shrill little girl scream. Really sounds like a 3 yr old girl whining about something.

And he has cognitive abilities that blow me away.

Do you mean "A" particular one "who was trained" or
The African Grey Parrots as a whole?

Because if the African Grey Parrots in general understood basic human language. They would be flying up asking people questions.
Meaning they had learned independently by their own reasoning skills.

I don't disagree,I just put an eternal being and the eternal energy of Krauss under the same heading as far as being possible. My opinion is the being is more plausible.

Yes indeed, but I'm not talking about the fundie jackasses here, I'm talking about Balaam's talking jackass. It's one of my favourite bible yarns, it would make a good Monty Python sketch. I mean, when the donkey speaks to him, Balaam doesn't say WTF!! or act in any way surprised, but just answers back as though they had been on speaking terms for years. What makes it even funnier is that some people actually believe this yarn, isn't that right Eagle12?

I asked you previously where Krauss made reference to "eternal energy", but I don't see where you answered that question.

It is assumed. If "nothing" is not really "nothing" but actually energy were back at square one. What is the cause of the energy? What is the cause of what created the energy and so on. So I have to assume the energy is eternal. If not Krauss hasn't achieved anything.

So you're *assuming* that Krauss is making a claim for "eternal energy", but you're not able to point to where he actually makes such a claim?

How about an answer of "we don't know yet"?

On the contrary, Krauss has explained how *particles*(the "something") can come into existence from the vacuum state (the "nothing").
