I love how mad Obama is about this.

By golly, he is mad as hell and he will get it fixed. Just trust him.

Nothing like a little righteous indignation to win people over, eh?

A shame. All that talent, all that knowing what was best for us. All that planning, all that tax money paying for that talent to put it together.

Those "in the know", those who are "informed", those who are "educated", you know, the average Topix atheist and progressive liberal, they know where the real problem is.

It's Bush's fault.

I see you are having some issues around your neck of the woods.
I looked up the Blue Mountains. Three thousand feet is a mountain? I live at 4000 feet and there ain't a mountain in sight. I can see the top of Pike's Peak if I drive about 10 miles in that direction, which is all uphill, and about 114 miles away.
Hope you guys don't get altitude sickness from trekking up those dizzying high places. Might get worse when they get older and grow up.
We had some nasty prairie fires out here a couple of years ago. One got a half mile away. Had about 3 weeks straight of 115 F with strong dry winds. Last year wasn't so bad. There was nothing left to burn. This year was rather pleasant temp wise.
I guess you know about the flood issues afterwards. Lucky you they don't have 14,000 feet to fall.
We haven't seen nothing yet.
Tomorrow is D day, this fire will become the states biggest fire in history.A 300km fire front being driven by 100kph wind gusts.
It's going to be crazy.

I would be interested to see the big savings on premiums those that managed to get enrolled have secured.

Do you think that kind of info will be released?

God wrote a book? Is that the only way he can try to prove stuff to humanity?

Do something that men also can do just the same as?

And God must have also made all the different religions!

Could it have been otherwise? He wants to mess with us?

We have to get it right among different religions? Really?

You are dumber than I thought. And reinforcing what I said about you earlier.
You evidently don't know that continental drift is physical processes. In your mind it is a thing that does it.
Listen up, moron. You might learn something.
Rocks, mountains, dirt. Hard stuff. Plus they have water collected on top, and in the ground. In the ground it is a lubricant. Why you slip on mud.
That is the crust. Be advised there is something called gravity that pulls it down and exerts pressure on whatever is below it. No lie, there really is.
Beneath that crust is an area of the mantle that is kind of slippery in comparison. I posted a link to it. This is on top of harder stuff. Understand the term harder is relative,
A bulldozer has a hardened blade. They are notoriously heavy, too. I know, I ate one once. This weight exerts pressure on the ground below it. Just like that gravity pulling the crust down. Fancy that!
Now, when you move that bulldozer it will what they call shear any ground above the lower edge of the blade, what they call levelling the ground, which is dirt mostly. This is a combo of the gravity working on the bulldozer versus the gravity of the dirt. With the horizontal motion something has to give, usually the dirt. They don't work so well levelling solid granite mountains, but the dirt gives kind of easy. I can go into much greater detail as to why, but there is not enough space, nor ambition to do so.
But here is the similarity.
The crust is the bulldozer blade. Gravity is the weight. The drift is the motion. The outline gets erased. Otherwise the southern part of Africa had to climb that outline.
Go play in the dirt and learn something.
While this analogy is comical, it shows you have a fundamental misunderstanding of plate tectonics (which is, in turn, responsible for continental drift).

"Continental drift" does not mean that the continents are simply drifting around, bulldozing everything in their path like you are implying. Rather, continental drift occurs as the tectonic plates the continents rest upon move around. There are different types of boundaries between these plates, as well. Some boundaries essentially slide past one another, another type of boundary is where the two plates move apart from one another (like the Mid-Atlantic Ridge), and another type of boundary is where two plates move towards each other. Only one of those types of boundaries - the one in which the plates are moving toward one another - would create a scenario even remotely like the bulldozer example you suggested.

The plate that South America is sitting on and the plate that Africa is sitting on are moving away from one another, contrary to the whole scenario you have concocted. You simply made up the boundary type to fit your story instead of first finding out what type of boundary actually exists between those particular plates.

Anyways, the plates are moving away from each other. Where they meet is the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. As the two plates move apart from one another magma reaches the seafloor (at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge) and hardens, in turn producing new plate material. They move apart from one another at about the rate of 2.5 cm per year. You are suggesting that 12,000 years ago, South America was next to Africa, which would place them (moving 2.5 cm apart from one another per year) at a whopping 300 meters away from one another now. This isn't even 1/5 of a mile. This isn't even remotely close to reality.

I know, I know, you suggested that South America surfed over to where it is now because of a meteor or earthquake. And there's a bulldozer in there somewhere. But, there is no evidence whatsoever to substantiate such an extravagant claim, nor does it even make any sense in regards to plate tectonics.

That's a big fire. So they are going to merge?

Is it headed for Sydney? Is it sending a lot of wildlife out?

Spiders don't prey on humans, they're prolly as scared of us as we of them.
I know they're not actually horrible. I have an irrational fear of them, but me knowing it's irrational doesn't make me hate them any less. I would exterminate them from the earth if it could be done with minimal damage to the ecosystem.

Recently, there was a group of scientists who claimed to have found a way to detect dark matter, but I've not read their research yet.
<quoted text>These did not "make us happen." They might have had indirect influence, but do not directly shape biological evolution.
<quoted text>Saying science "proves" there is no deity is like saying science "proves" there are no elves. Nothing can "disprove" the existence of whatever invisible, magical beings anyone wants to suggest are real. This is of no concern for science, though, because anyone suggesting the existence of invisible, magical beings have the burden of proof to substantiate their wild claims.
Strange how belief in deities and belief in elves have so much in common, eh?
