Same with me. If I make a statement regarding human evolution and Hiding makes a contradictory one, you can without any doubt dismiss my opinion as faulty.
I don't know if Hiding is a scholar.

No, the literal account of Adam and Eve has been falsified. Even you agree, for the literal account is the very basis of Creationism.
As for the metaphorical account? We simply do not care. Science does not concern itself with metaphors. We care not to dismiss any metaphors, in anyway. Adam could be a metaphor for an entire population. He could have represented the first Israelite. Could have represented the first man to invent the figleaf Speedo. We do not care whatbhe represents. What we care about , is that the literal account has been busted to smithereens.
You don't care.

Got it.

Nope I don’t believe in the infallibility of justice but I do believe in justice, the majority of the time it works but it is not infallible.

But of course the prisons are full of people who did not do it.

Is not new evidence grounds for a re-trial?

Sigh. Wrong again.
1) First, it is in scientific publications. More importantly, it is in dissertations.
2) Those very same facts are relayed at school.
3) And the evidence, some of it, is avaliable at a museum.
4) Mainstream media? Since when would mainstream media give a fart about anything scientific? Last year, a palaeontologist rendered a dinosaur in full colour, based on fossilised pigmentation of feather samples... But when Kim Kardashian takes her top off in public, it makes much more waves. The Higgs Boson was discovered, probably the greatest scientific discovery for the next hundred years... Princess Kate is having a baby and it makes much more waves. Mainstream media is an absolute joke. However, have you ever watched Discovery Channel, History Channel, NatGeo? How many of hose programmes do you think share in the knowledge we have?
If it was in scientific publications, somebody would've posted here by now.

Yes, I watch those channels all the time, they put out some very interesting stuff.

The media also puts out a lot of different stuff. Your analogy to Kim is very true, but if there was some scientific evidence discovered that absolutely refuted the Bible, the media would be all over it.

Nope.

You alleged that I'm a cheapskate because I bought a book online for a penny.

I'm not a cheapskate, I'm frugal. Why spend $12.99 for a book when you can spend $.01?

Yeah and you tell she has had some serious school in
evolutionary sociology like she said. You seem to doubt the expertise of people, but trust in books of ancient myth.
I suppose we should doubt your claimed ability, because they aren't even apparent in here. But her are plainly evident, and demonstrated by the composition of the explanatory posts she has made.
I think Tide said it best when he said.

<quoted text>We live in a society where prison life truly is easier than "real life" for some people. In prison you get a place to stay, food and health care. Some people don't have that stuff, and that creates desperation. Anyways, your opinion of the "criminal mind" and what not is totally irrelevant - the fact is, deterrents DO NOT WORK. How many times do I need to drill this into your head? No matter how badly we treat our (mostly nonviolent) offenders, people will still commit crime.
I never said we should treat our criminals badly, I'm saying that we don't need to give them creature comforts like cable, A/C, tasty food, allow them to have porn, sex or drugs, etc while incarcerated.

Tell me what a better deterrent would be than a cold, uncomfortable prison sentence.

They are in prison and have drugs.

They can't make the drugs in prison.

They must get them from the outside.

Prison officials know what happens and allow the inmates to keep their drugs.

Yes, we DO allow them access to drugs.

You don't know much about prison do you?

Their Lordships on The Strand rarely grant a retrial.

This is because there are only two possible verdicts. one of them being not guilty.

The Ministry of Justice prefers a verdict of the conviction being 'UNSAFE' which is a verdict of,'not innocent but not guilty' this bars compensation claims.

Barry george was convicted on 3 grains of gun shot residue in an army surplus combat jacket, on range days my house probably has thousands of grains of GSR in it when the wife gets home. I've sat down and spoken to his sister and his conviction was a typical case of police picking the 'low hanging fruit'. He has spent 8 years behind bars and now he is out he is still not entitled to a label of 'innocent' or 'wrongly convicted'...just 'not guilty enough'.

Yo Dave.
I dont know if you have any gardening experience, but see if you can make a harvestable crop of anything by just chucking in seeds in random patches of ground. If the seed is bot watered, no produce. If the seed is not in the right soil, no produce. If the plant is not hardy enough it will simply die in winter. If the plant is nkt watered it will die. It needs the right amount of sunlight, in order to grow buds/fruits. Then, it needs the right of potassium for the fruits to be of use.
Any of the items mentioned are missing, then you will not have yield. The only yield you wmight have is by pure chance. And tbat yield is way too low to sustain a population
I have some.

If you find a plant growing in the wild and it has been surviving for a while it is likely the conditions are OK for its growth all by its lonesome. Particularly if it drops seeds and they grow year after year, even if they get spread a bit. I think this is how forests, underbrush, grass, and a few other vegetative thingies have spread about the planet.

So you throw the seeds of a plant that survived an area in similar ground in the area. Good chance it will grow, too.

Some Indians of the American Southwest planted corn before they moved to another area for that part of the year and harvested it when they got back. References to that may be in one of those links I posted last night.

Speaking of cultivating and gardening, did I tell you about a cedar tree that used to be at Coral Castle? It had been there for quite a while before a hurricane took it out. About 25-30 foot tall, planted next to a rock wall that was about 8 foot high. The wall ran E-W, and the tree was in the middle of it. Normal budding and pruning below the top of the wall. Above the wall the branches grew only E-W. Looked like a big menorah. No buds or pruning marks.
