Does this mean that all cloned embryos would grow up to be gingers?
I pay about $32.50 a month each for me and my wife at LA Fitness. We take Zumba classes there four times a week. If we wanted classes like that outside the gym it is about $3/person/lesson, which would cost around $48 a month. I have also paid for the membership to access any of their clubs so sometimes I can hit the one near work, other times we alternate between the two near our home.
Treadmills might fine for some people, but there is something to be said about group fitness.
Because when bacteria and viruses keep getting better at killing us we need the random genetic mutations to help us survive. Look at banana colonies that have collapsed due to cloning of banana trees when a new disease came by and wiped out all the trees.
But the "." is way on the other side of the keyboard.
Thanks for pointing that out, polygamy and Mormons was an example of social pressures forcing change, which they fought against until their temples and other property were threatened to be confiscated by the US government. It was a poor choice on my part and should not have been used given the context of the point I was trying to make was new evidence being brought forth in conjunction with social pressures and not just social pressures itself.
And the Bible's purpose is moral, not to "advance medicine".
You mean how it is moral to stone woman for adultery? Or how it is moral to commit genocide and keep the woman as spoils? Or how it is moral to mutilate the genitalia of newborns? Or how it is moral to kill witches? Or how it is moral to stone a man for collecting sticks on the Sabbath? Perhaps you meant the story of Lot, not Lot's wife, but how he thought it more moral to give his daughters to a narcissistic mob rather than let them have sex with his male guest. Or maybe it's the rest of Lot's story where his daughters get him drunk and rape him.
Maybe I'm just blind, but I don't quite see what the bible has to do with morality.
In Dawkins' book, "The God Delusion", he actually addresses this point at the beginning of the book and describes it as Einstein's god. Einstein didn't believe in a personal god, but his use of god was pretty much synonymous with the universe. This isn't the god that he argues against. Another author worth reading is Christopher Hitchens, especially his book "God Is Not Good: How Religion Poisons Everything", to understand how any religion, whether monotheistic or polytheistic, poisons the good that it does, especially when in power.
The biggest difference between Science and Religion is how easy Science is able to discard previous ideas when new evidence is brought forward whereas Religion will fight tooth and nail until it is impractical for it to not adjust, e.g. Mormons and polygamy, or Mormons and blacks. We have seen this recently with some sects of Christianity starting to embrace evolution, yet others are still outright against its teachings.
I can at least confirm that for Taiwan, but not if you wanted police, that would be 110. 119 was only for fire and ambulance. 112 would get you a phone repair line and 117 would give you the time. I also remember dialing 166 and listening to the weather in Chinese for fun.
And by extension, then four wrongs can't make an airplane
No, it's more like if the South was still separated from the North and somebody from Florida built a factory in New York with their headquarters still in Florida. Is that a US company or a Confederate company? What if the North still claimed rule over the South but actually had not effect on the South other than keeping them out of any international organization and pointing missiles at them. Now imagine the South still has their own currency, health care system, President and Congress, hold elections and have vastly more human rights (I know, the human rights is probably swapped in this scenario). Oh but the North says there is only one America, so they bully the rest of the world into not officially recognizing the South as its own sovereign country.
That's why we need to take a serious look at Gary Johnson. We need a good steward of taxpayer's dollars.
I had a friend who's car had to have the headlights turned on or else it would honk if you tried to turn the ignition. That was a wacky way to keep people from stealing your car.
I thought it was going to be an article critical of the new Kindle, and had to read the article before realizing I had misread the title. I wonder what genius at Amazon thought that Paperwhite is a good word? It's awkward to say and is so similar to paperweight that people will confuse it all the time.
...and it *is* special treatment because they aren't proposing one called
Dude, your post is so many kinds of awesome I had to pay my respects...
Yeah, there's no
Reminds me of a meme I saw once. Asking why there is woman's study and no men's study, the reply was there is, it's called History.
... cell phones with "notes" functions that allow them to take down quick reminders...
I actually have found this to be the thing that is lacking on my Android phone. Of all the default applications that are available, not a single notepad. I've tried many different ones from the market, but they all have their quirks and I can't seem to find something that is just easy to drop in a line of text, automatically save, and later allow me to easily transfer it to my computer.
