Can you share your alternative theory/papers? i am sure people here would be interested.

If you do not enjoy work then that is the problem to be fixed. Find a job you love.
It's hard to detect sarcasm when speaking of this nature about Brittan. The government there already places surveillance cameras in private homes.
you spelled guvmint wrong
evolutions science is very similar to physics science. Physics science is by no means nailed down 100% and there are competing theories that eventually may get confirmed or eliminated. I think you are trying to compare evolution science to pure mathematics, specifically that which can be proved based on a set of axioms.
If you want to compare evolution to police work then compare it to OJ Simpson, since we know he did it!
Sorry you lost your wife and son. I think experiences such as yours shows the background and reason why humans had to invent gods. Originally those gods were in the Sun, or Rocks or Trees or anything else mystical, and they gave comfort to humans. Which is fine, but let's not confuse that comfort with something that actually exists.
Sad, but he was 86. I am just not sure of the "News for Nerds" angle here...
You are probably correct. I think they are just saying that the target range could be larger than we assume. There are no guarantees.
Science doesn't seek to prove god doesn't exist but the learnings of science is that any god would be irrelevant, so might as well not exist

Which sums up how religion works and fails when thinking about science.
There may not be intelligent life out there but looking for it does not cost much and exploring is not that expensive. So we might as well do it.
Though if this was true we would expect to see the boot up time much faster. Even our current terraforming ideas for Mars & Venus have much shorter timeframes than there was for life on earth. Even long lived civilisations would not wait billions of years, let alone millions.

The power of positive thinking
A god botherer interested in proof? That makes a change but then again you only throw out those statements since you will not read any proof
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E... "Complex, image-forming eyes evolved independently some 50 to 100 times"
>There were created numerous times by a single individual.
I thought your imaginary friend was a trinity? so shouldn't it be three individuals (i could never work out who the holy spook was though)
Interesting. Could the NSA have implicated John Edwards? Perhaps Hillary will be the best candidate as there is nothing she has done that has not been dragged over in the media, so there can't be much to reveal.
We have to stop subsidising oil and apply the true cost of carbon. Then the market will take care of it. Global warming will do more to wreck the economy than anything we do to oil.
Building more efficient cities takes time. Our cities are designed for oil and that is one big problem.
Yes, there has been more CO2 in the atmosphere in the past, just as there has been more oxygen. The planet will be fine, but there will be another big die off, and we will be part of that. The CO2 was accumulated in the earth over hundreds of millions of years. Releasing it all at once will cause major problems. We do not need it to prevent ice ages. We know how to warm the atmosphere, e don't know how to easily cool it.
