Myrtle Beach Contamination

Wow, at first I was thinking of all the big fat yankee walrus's, herded in tight on the beach, slathered up in sun tanning oils, polluting the area.  (May 26, 2008 | post #7)

Police: Father Attacks Woman Accused of Killing His Son

Of course I'm for real! Lets be honest here, court rooms dont always get it right, often times mistakes are made. Get something straight here, and don't romanticize the courtroom from being personally saturated by a myraid of TV dramas in which the righteous always comes out socially avenged and redeemed. Look at the news, everyday misatkes are made, a parloee gets out only to continue killing and or raping, or a sixth offense DUI uses a 3000lb bullet with tires to smash up a human body... Have you ever seen what a vehicle does to a human body??? I bet you have not. Just keep in mind, a courtroom is merely a cockpit for lawyers to fight in which justice is not always dispensed properly.  (Jan 31, 2008 | post #174)

Police: Father Attacks Woman Accused of Killing His Son

Yes, you could srike me from the jury if I openly said so, but it would be a fifth column maneuver employed at the last possible moment. How would you even know what was going on while the jury was deliberating? Wow, a real class act you are, emulating a star-struck kid who wants to grow up and be a lawyer.... a lawyer without even inclination of how the "system" works. Now if it frustrates you, that people like me can play it down the middle, then deliver a social coup de gras at the last moment to your butt,then think of another line of work. So if the dude got a little quality trigger time in on that maggot, I would send him a christmas card each year for lessening the load of social irresposibility. Oh....doing my duty as a juror, is not a definition exclusively defined by you....are you really that much of an arrogant buffoon?  (Jan 31, 2008 | post #173)

Police: Father Attacks Woman Accused of Killing His Son

Sad part is, the driver, probably had a long list of driving offenses. When she hit the kid, she was driving a big SUV, talking on the cell phone and holding a cigarette too....manslaughter waiting to happen. If he had succeeded in giving her a frontal lobtomy,and I was sitting on the jury I would have gladly hung the jury up in trying to convict the guy. Society has shown a court room often times screws up in metering out proper justice...so hey why not claim a little victory every now and then?  (Jan 31, 2008 | post #168)

Evolution Debate May Return to SC School Board

Now, Now lets dont get nasty I guess in some remote way you can connect biology and Anthropology together. However, much of Geology and Biology is tangible you can see it interacting right before your very eyes. Likewise, if I can borrow once agin some more of that infamous yet dramaitc embellishment: so are those running cars, nuclear plants, oil fields, Sun,and so on. As to conspirices, I dont believe any of evolution is a conspricy, thats just your demenor acting acting out an aggression from continual frustration. Oh there is a lot of evolution that makes sense, but there are fallacies everywhere. Just as in religion..... the numbers are not adding up....Occam's razor. Here let me help you out, in understanding what the fellow brethren say about it: Occam's razor n. A rule in science and philosophy stating that entities should not be multiplied needlessly. This rule is interpreted to mean that the simplest of two or more competing theories is preferable and that an explanation for unknown phenomena should first be attempted in terms of what is already known. Also called law of parsimony. Now at one miniute you folks can agree on it, but when it chaffs you happy little model, the radical reactions occur....in many ways just like the over-zealous behavior found in some religious communities.hhhuuu mmm maybe some much of the Evolutionary folks are experiencing at a crisis not unlike what the various religions went through during the middle ages. Evolution, is essentially based on one central theme, Man came from ape. And of course it will be defended to the end, by those who have a vested interest. However, if the whole theory collapses before their very eyes, half of the science will be out the window. It just seems such a waste of a life to hedge everthing you have studied and worked for one basic concept. While folks in other sciences get to enjoy a wider array on interests in thier fields....such as the biologists you mentioned before. Consider this: Instead of trying to convince people about Evolution like it will relinquish some kind of inner frustration by finding one "conversion ". Just simply accept things for they way they are, and leave the overzealous tirades to the teenagers and twenty-something juvenils, who feel the world is their to change. Wow in retrospect, all this talk about the groups seeking "conversions " and gambling on "one belief" has me wondering if the evolution camp and the religious camp are actually more closely realted than earlier thought? The question remains who is going to step up and assume the Australopithecine position and the other the more advanced Cro-Magnon man?  (Jan 1, 2008 | post #271)

Sure, someone wins the powerball, but every species is also pulling on the winning ticket too. It would be far more favorable to advance no further than a cockroach,whereby winning in a static postion through sheer numbers than to keep evolving into a more complex life form. How can it be "cockeyed " everyone can agree, that evolution is fraught with many starts and stops, so how can the end result be any more valid than the next? Even Anthrpologists agree, the tree of human "ascension " had many dead-ends. Thus is it not unreasonable to give creation equal validity, in fact the odds are more favorable....Occua m's Razor But please remeber, I have no vested interest in whether Creation or Evolution "comes out on top" But however I can see, those who are more adament about the discussion are the most zealot in their positions, which begs the question "what are their personal stake in the matter" Upon discovery, and usually through dialog it is usually easy to astertain a persons vested interest. And I would give as much credibility to the stary-eyed Anthopolgist student, who after many years has gambled his whole education; student loans etc. on a one-shot concept. Thus I find the evolutionary camp as nutty as the religious camp in their vested interests. And I would give both as much credibility as the town drunk confessing he never had a DUI. Come to think about it, religion has been disproven several times throughout the ages and probably by now is accoustomed too it. However the Evolutionary camp is probably the most radical of the two, after all, if their concept is proven false, then for many they have wasted thier whole lives in a vain science and have to revert to McDonalds...PhD's and all.  (Dec 31, 2007 | post #264)

No I'm not trying to make it complex, nor address where God came from I'm just saying to advance evolutionary is a very long shot, It would have been far more favorable to evolutionay creep along until reaching a static position,ending up far less complex that the human body. Such as a mud-skipper in which the environment controls neither an extinction of the species nor an advancement...a static position. Now when you mention the evolutionary theory crapping out due to probabilities, you always get a knee-jerk reaction, due to some kind of vested interest. Such as the glassy-eyed physical Anthropologist student who has bank-rolled his whole education on the notion. Or a bible-thumper who has his obvious vested interests. Or even the relgious detractors who see themselves as their own Gods determined to find believers in them. In fact I'm looking at evolution straight-forward without a vested interest, and see more impossibilities than possibilites...thu s Occum's razor, going with the least amount of assumptions.  (Dec 31, 2007 | post #261)

Yes but it comes without a cost, other than lifting and lowering your diaphragm. But to advance evolutionary has its costs, with every possible pitfall nipping at its heels along the way such as disease, preadtors, enviromental changes etc. But I will give you that, we all could have very well inhaled a nose searing o2 fart molecule from some ancient Australopithecine. Heck in some remote way we have all drank dinosaur **** too. After all, the water we have has been around for a long time and recycled over and over.  (Dec 31, 2007 | post #260)

Yes, you pick number, so what? But for that number to advance evolutionary it would have to prevail in a preadtory environment. Then its offspring would likewise be given the same odds to prevail, and so on for how many generations? At least a million? So in essence we have lottery winners in a chain of succession back to back without interruption....I wonder what the odds are on that? ....Occum's razor my friend, going with the least amount of assumptions.  (Dec 30, 2007 | post #240)

Ha, All these "intellectual power-houses" I too have every right like the atheist to begin with assumption. It's much easier to reason from God down than from a clump of dirt up! One thing Science advocates is the principles of Occam's razor. However if you use this theory in regards to evolution, you will find it is much easier to remain as a mud-skipper than evolve into the complexities of the human body. With all the infinate possibilites for humans to evolve into something else other than human would have been far more favorable.  (Dec 28, 2007 | post #222)

Yep Bears have been shown to use trees as rudimentary back scratchers and toliet paper too. WOW, even Squirrels even use those little paws a shovels. Now if you consider Ants, they are miners in the extreme. Gosh, think about birds who use sticks to build a nest. It won't be long before we will see an Ape in the Home Depot arguing over the size of a metal rod. Ape: I'm tellin' ya this rod is 3/16 in diameter, I told you I wanted an 1/8 diameter rod for fishing those termites out! Clerk: Are you sure its 3/16 in diameter? Ape: You trying to be funny or cute? I used a micrometer to measure it! Don't tick me off, I have experience at being a 400 lb Gorilla!  (Dec 28, 2007 | post #186)

If an Australopithecine was thumping on a dead Armadillio with a stick and a Cro-magnon man walked up and like the "Snappy" tune, would that be considered a cross-over hit?  (Dec 28, 2007 | post #184)

What's the big hub-bub over it? It seems some of these folks need their pedigree determined by the state. Why? Is there a suspicion of doubt somewhere?  (Dec 26, 2007 | post #140)

Parents Brawl At School Holiday Program

Dollar to a doughnut, it was one of those African-american women who dumps all her money into satuday afternoon "hair weaves". Instead of correcting the child, she probably encourages it to be aggressive..not to take any crap. Instead of trying to discover the root cause, she in all liklihood jumped straight into the same mode she is teaching her little heathen. Thus another black kid will grow up one the fast track to prison. While the "mother" assumes her role at McDonalds for another day. Where's the video to this one, I bet I'm 100% correct on this call!  (Dec 25, 2007 | post #82)
