Pet dog kills Connersville woman

I'm smart, but it is not clear to me what you mean. On post #356 on THIS discussion I strongly agreed with "Chow Eater." I put in a link to a "TOPIX" discussion about Pit Bulls which I think is related to this discussion about agressive dogs. No science. No "mumbo jumbo." On the other discussion (TOPIX link) on page 5 I mentioned specifically the aggresion and being unpredictable. To me, unpredictable IS "unreliable. "  (Jun 22, 2007 | post #359)

You are worthy of registering with TOPIX. I'm being serious, not facetious. Smart people only need one name. Dumb people use lots of names or temporary names because they like to just shout out a bunch of crap, and then everybody else responds to it. People with temporary names tend to have temporary commitments, shallow beliefs and have no real character because they can be somebody else next post, or next topic.  (Jun 22, 2007 | post #357)

Blame owners, Mayor, not poor pit bulls

I didn't realize there was an additional post on this thread. Now for my reply. I did not say that "I" brought the dogs to Pet Smart. I would never do that. My daughter and boy friend have. I did not say that I have owned Pit Bulls. I said I have lived with Pit Bulls. I don't know what you consider to be "equipped " to "manage" "dog aggression." I simply do not want an aggressive dog, especially a Pit Bull. My way of managing an aggressive dog is to get rid of it; and I don't mean a new home. I don't think anyone is "fit to have/manage/train " Pit Bulls because they are too unpredictable. Of course any breed of dog can be trained, but Pit Bulls are too destructive to trust around people. Most Pit Bulls are fine around people, but as in anything else, there is a worst of the bunch. I pick the Pit Bull to be the worst. Not because they are the most likely to attack (trained or not); it's because of the destruction they cause when they do attack. I'm "intelligent " enough to not want an agressive dog; and why would I want to own that so many people hate?  (Jun 21, 2007 | post #83)

Burglars take $400,000 from woman, 89

The only story I saw on this does not indicate WHEN the neighbor saw them and the red truck, other than that date: "Police said a neighbor spotted three young men in a red pickup truck near the home" The thieves may have been leaving. Some people don't really know what suspicion looks like, especially if they are not thinking about it already. Police know suspicious activity real well because they are looking for it all the time. A neighborhood watch is a good way to be aware of suspicious activity. The story I read said "Police said", so we are getting the story from a story, the story came from a reporter, the reporter got the story from the police, the police got the story from a neighbor who is said to be a witness because of the story which was told to the police. The information may all be the truth. We just might not be getting all the truth.  (Jun 21, 2007 | post #36)

Out of context? My opinion, that I did not express as fact is baloneyI must have been talking to you. See? The context here is your replies presented as fact, when it's really just your opinionQUOTE who="my left foot"] <quoted text>oh boy!!more booga wooga [/QUOTEQUOTE who="my left foot"] <quoted text>I think you're full of crap [/QUOTEQUOTE who="my left foot"] <quoted text>part of a pre-planned supernatural , ghostly existance . I feel sad for you:( [/QUOTEQUOTE who="my left foot"] <quoted text>You are trying to put words in our mouths so that you can speculate and amuse yourself. [/QUOTEYou did mention the word "think" however, saying to someone "you're full of crap" Context or not, I see what comes out of you. You are telling me that I "somehow think" and I "think" I can "gain some sort of advantage." You know what I am thinking, but you don't understand it? I posted those previous replies to "prove" that you make as much noise as you do sense. I like the sense. I don't like the noise. Simple as that. "Nuances " by definition are "petty" or "little. " More noise. Do you have a second "of all"?  (Jun 15, 2007 | post #2046)

QUOTE who="my left foot"]Technol ogy has offered improvement in a sense, but what's in store for us down the road is certainly something we can't answer now, It has provided a longer lifespan and a greater comfort level than we've ever experienced in the past . I suppose you could go off in a tandem and speculate all day, but that would be the opposite of what's occurring now. Filling in the gaps with anything other than testable evidence would be self defeating. We need to continue with the scientific path that we've outlined for ourselves where ever it may lead . At least we'll be dealing with verifiable proof and that's more fun than being deceived by medicine men ... [/QUOTE] So do you have "testable evidence" with "verifiable proof" that what I stated is not what I believe? If not, then don't try "filling in the gaps." I wasn't preaching or teaching. I simply stated a belief which includes evolution. I didn't present it as fact. I will say as a fact that answering the question "Do you believe in evolution?" does not require teaching or preaching or debating or arguing. Trying to prove your answer will probably require every effort, and get you no satisfaction.  (Jun 14, 2007 | post #2038)

Was my "ulterior motive" to get the word outI just didn't realize that anything beyond belief, proof or understanding is beyond the inclusion of evolution.  (Jun 14, 2007 | post #2037)

Wow. Based on your replies to others for the past three days, I think I'm pleased with your replyQUOTE who="my left foot"]<quo ted text>oh boy!!more booga wooga[/QUOTEQUOTE who="my left foot"]<quo ted text>I think you're full of crap [/QUOTEQUOTE who="my left foot"]<quo ted text>part of a pre-planned supernatural , ghostly existance .

[/QUOTEYour reply is more baloney than my statements. I expressed my beliefs. I did not state them as fact. I implied fact only about the implied discussion about about the actual question of this thread. Since baloney means nonsense, it appears that you are using this forum as a baloney vending machine. I don't like it, an I'm not buying it.  (Jun 14, 2007 | post #2036)

That's it? I believe most of us don't even think we know exactly when and over what period of time (on our calenders) creation took place, but the question on this thread is about evolution, not creation. I believe creation probably isn't the missing link. I think creation IS "the" link that we cannot explain, because we cannot understand. We could talk somewhere else about creation, but here the discussion is supposed to be about whether or not we believe in evolution.  (Jun 14, 2007 | post #2028)

Do You Believe In Evolution?

Hey everybody! After some intense searching I have discovered that "Manny" brings to us more than what meets the eye or teases our intellectual prowess; and therefore so will I. Many of us have a belief that we may not have realized. Manny exposes a really good illustration of the Goau Retrogression Theorem, or simply "Goau Theorem." But first I will explain the name "Manny." The "Manny Attribute Belief" is the belief that you can know where something came from simply by knowing where it belongs. Manny has illustrated this not so skillfully for us with only this one statementAt least a few of us might agree that Manny must have came from "an empty vacuum in the extreme cold of outer space" because that's where he belongs. In my book, the word manny comes from the Engish words "manufacture " and "any." The usage of the word manufacture is "fabricate. " The use of the word any is "whatever. " Now back to the Goau Theorem. The Goau Theorem applies to a creature with a predispostion of failure merely by having less than half of the sense it takes to survive. The word "goau" comes from the English word ignoramus, of which, when it has less than half of it's letters, produces goau. I mentioned that Manny exposes a really good illustration of the Goau Theorem. Well it certainly wasn't me. I only just wrote the Goau Theorem tonight. Manny exposed himself.  (Jun 10, 2007 | post #1695)

Here is my non-advanced educated opinion in light of the nonsensical contributions on this forum: Evolution has only to do with the existence of something, not the origin of it, because something won't evolve if it does not yet exist. And of course things don't evolve from nothing. Things only evolve from something. Evolution is not the beginning of anything, but any "thing" is the beginning of evolution. Evolution is the change, the advancement and progress of something that exists, including the end of it's existence. For example, nothing will come of a field of corn if there is no corn and no field. Everyone can come to their own hypothesis on where or how the origional "something " occurred, but that is not the subject of this thread. Our discussion is supposed to be about evolution, which has nothing to do with the beginning of existence. I will add however, that I believe the word "faith" in the context of origin simply means belief or confidence. For example you can have faith in the God's creation, or the big bang theory, or something from nothing. >I you are only leaning towards something, I recommend leaning AWAY from the "something from nothing."  (Jun 9, 2007 | post #1623)
