Obviously Atlantis seeded both Europe and America. That's soooo much more likely than common social behaviors leading to common social structures.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Are the mosquitoes DDT-resistant?
It was a possible outcome.
The words "possible" and "chance" don't give a responsible scientist the right to claim that the sky is falling.
It wasn't a prediction.
Of course it was. That's why he wrote an Op Ed in a major East Coast newspaper.
and a paper on volcanic eruptions?
Where the hell did I say that his paper was on volcanic eruptions?
What was in that koolaide, mercury and lead paste?
What's this fixation you have with koolaide[sic]?
Did he ever say that volcanic eruptions and petroleum fires are the same thing?
If he didn't think the oil fires would not cause an "Oil Fires Winter" just like nukes would, why then would he then sound the alarm about the global catastrophe from the oil fires?
Did anybody say the academic paper was "on volcanic eruptions?"
Have you already forgotten what you wrote just 2 hours ago? Carl Sagan... is actually an expert on the subject, with academic papers on nuclear winter effects that analyze known past events like volcanic eruptions.
because he doesn't say anything incorrect.
Except for stuff like:
The fires would burn out of control until they put themselves out...
This endangerment of the food supplies... appears to be likely enough that it should affect the war plans...
But, you say, he wrote an academic paper on known past events like volcanic eruptions. Except that he didn't know enough to realize that petroleum fires aren't volcano eruptions and still played Chicken Little.
Why do you hate Carl Sagan?
I hate Carl Sagan as much as I hate politicians pontificating outside of their own fields of expertise.
discovered you're probably a credulous right-winger, or
or I'm actually reading his own quotes instead of relying on someone else to interpret them..
"Quickly capping 363 oil well fires in a war zone is impossible. The fires would burn out of control until they put themselves out... The resulting soot might well stretch over all of South Asia... It could be carried around the world... [and] the consequences could be dire. Beneath such a pall sunlight would be dimmed, temperatures lowered and droughts more frequent. Spring and summer frosts may be expected... This endangerment of the food supplies... appears to be likely enough that it should affect the war plans..." - Sagan in op/ed he co-authored with Richard Turco, The Baltimore Sun, January 31, 1991, commenting during the Gulf War on the impact of oil well fires
He's not nerdy enough.
Brillian minds speaking outside their realm of expertise don't impress me much. Google "Carl Sagan Kuwait Oil Fires" to see how wrong cosmologists can be when pontificating about the Earth.
So therefore we should never ever use software?
That in no way shape or form derives from what I wrote.
Horrible fscking grammar is what it is...
Does this mean that Ubuntu is a guest OS on a cloud powered by Windows?
You're just too young to remember how Eeeeeeeeeevvvvvvviiiiiiillllll that RR was.
And have no sense of humor, either.
Ronald Reagan's cold dead hand stretches forth again to wreak havoc across the land!
Submitter can't be so dim that "human error" doesn't occur to him, can he?
(Females in the 21st century are too sainted to make this kind of mistake...)
Is it a theory or a hypothesis?
We seem to be pretty good to sticking to the budget
You're better than us, then... things go off the rails when I don't watch.
