Hey there macafee, I'm not a creationsist. At least, not in the literal sense.
I know what it is, a change in the classification. I got it. I know that. But as a kid, I was taught it was DEFINATELY a planet.
The first time I heard there was "now" only 8 planets in our solar system, I was like O_o
Sigh. During Apartheid, the Black folk wanted Apartheid to end. They wanted a new Constitution, one that is based on a document called the Freedom Charter. Long story short, it was probably the most advanced and inclusive Bill of Rights anywhere on earth, even today.

Our Apartheid regine banned it. Called anyone in possesion of a copy a terrorist and could hold them for years without a trial.

The Freedom Charter was classified as "banned material".

Then came the 90's. Mandela came out of prison, him and FW shook hands, Apartheid ended, black majority regime took over and we won the Rugby World Cup. Freedom Charter was now our Bill of Rights.

It was reclassified as a legal document.

The charter is still the same. Not a word was changed.

I cannot see the difficulty in understanding this

Really? Huh....
How did you know what Pluto was doing?
Did the same people that told you it was a planet also tell you what it's doing?
Think, man.
RR, I have seen some dumb discussions while on Topix. But recently... You have taken the cake. Really. I have always thought you a class above Yellodog, Dr Shrink and those type loons. But the indefensible points of view you have held these last weeks have shown a pathetic understanding of the world around you, a blatant lack of compassion for the suffering masses and stupidity beyond belief.

If you walk into any lab filled with people doing research, that lab is not alive. It's not producing anything. People are alive and doing the work in a systematic manner.
The same can be said for a library, a grocery shop or even a strip club. The running of all such things is in fundamentally universal methodical agreement. The Chinese dude gets a boner when a woman gives him a lap dance. The African dude gets a boner the same way. We pick stuff off the shelf and pay for it the same way. We borrow and return books the same way.
It is all people doing these activities. And this is the folly of many atheists. They give undue personification to things that are inanimate. Even religion is physically just a building, and some books. And then when things screw up, they want to go around blaming religion, or blaming socialism, or capitalism or nazism, things that don't really have a face or voice, instead of just accepting responsibility that their fellow humans were just gullible and stupid in their actions.

That is just harnessing and optimizing teamwork, and using machines to aid. Ultimately there is no life given to science. It is people and their invented machines doing the work.

Because, of course, all those other guys "knew" that had it right, too.
No, we do not, and no, neither did they think they had 'it'.

Newton brougt out his theory of gravity. Many years later, Einstein was able to improve on it with his theory of Relativity.

A theory is an explanation of facts. Each generation, as technology improve, we obtain more bits of data, which are more accurate. This allows us to improve, ammend or change set theory. Newton's Law of Gravity is still being used, even by NASA for near earth applications, because it is simpler and easier to apply.

It's like cars. We can make smaller engines give more horsepower. Modern mass production cars are faster than sports cars twenty years ago. That does not mean the classic cars like the Jaguar E-Type, the Ferrari F40 and the Aston Martin DB5 are crap.

No, it is not. Because science is not dogma. It is subject to scrutiny and investigation. Religion is not. It is dogma from the start and does not allow for critical thinking

I didn challenge it. I told you science does not learn, as you have claimed. Science is a field, or a category of many fields of study.
Pfft.

I'll acknowledge that I may have generalized "science", much as one might generalize "education" or "religion" or "knowledge".

I'll change the syntax if you'd like, but the point remains - the field of scientific knowledge is self-correcting and continually improving.

That of "Biblical knowledge" does not - or are you still slaughtering pigeons to cure disease?

Please explain what is POE.
Second language? What's your first language? I am also an English seccie langie

Methinks they misused the word "poe", or interpreted in a way other than the norm.

Google "Poe's Law" - Poe said that you cannot distinguish between a religious fundementalist and a person pretending to be a fundemantalist.

I.e. If I pretended to be a Ph.D level Anthropologist, people like HFY would easily tear my argiments to pieces and conclude I am a fake. If I tried to say I am a Quantum Physics expert, Polymath and Aura Mytha would tear me to pieces. It is because they would see my knowledge is not up to standard.
That is how we know Dave Nelson is a cook. He proclaims himself some kind of genius, but really does not know any equations, their applications, etc.

However, to be a religious fundemantalist, one needs no skills, insight or education. Thus if I go on a Christian rant, tell people they are going to hell, and advocate 6,000 year old earth, you would not be able to tell if I am seriois or just kidding.

So what is a poe? It is usually an internet troll, who creates a new profile and comes on here, insulting everybody, telling us how we will burn in hell, etc

Double Fine is skipping the last ten oages or so. If it contained anything else than the odd idiot popping in and proclaiming evolution a lie, or RR telling us how bats are birds and snakes are not snakes, then all is well.

If anyone sent Double Fine something, please resend

English is my second also. I grew up in Irish Gaelic, which may be even rarer than Afrikaans.

Laffin.

And Dave is, at best, a hack. He read an article or saw a TV show about magnets once.

Gaelic is rare. Afrikaans have maybe 2-3 million first language speakers. The amount of people that understand it, maybe double or triple that. Of course, you know "bantu" education during Apartheid years, well, they forced everybody to take Afrikaans as either second or third language. This has filtered through to other generations - I am sure that True Truth most likely does not even see an Afrikaans person during his working day, yet I would bet my new set of wheels that he is able to keep a decent conversation in it - say hi, goodbye, ask directions or for a product from a grocer.

Also, it is a good language to swear in

My first SNCO was from the outer isles and spoke The Gaelic, never even heard English until he was 9. He was difficult to understand, the words all merged.

Once you get up to Kingussie or Aviemore the signs go bilingual, although I have to say more Welsh is spoken in Wales than Gaelic in Scotland.

Double Fine goes wet look, kind of like putting one's finger in a socket. Then, when the hair gets too long, Double Fine goes for the Brad Pitt look - and pulls it off

You know, I am an avid United supporter. I have not once seen an interview in which I understood all of Fergie's words. I wonder how the players understood him?

Of course it is not alive, but it is like a collection of minds. Since it is like collective, it also does have a life of it's own.
There is a difference between team work and a collective effort.
The collective allows you to form a team easily.

Here is another that calls itself artificial life, so I beg to differ in opinion whether it gives a life to science or not.(Of course it still isn't breathing itself) But through the collective it has a life of it's own.
I think of it like this, Percival, Gawain, Lancelot
were individuals, but together represented the round table.
The round table in this way takes a life of it's own by being a collective effort.
