Satan is by far more intelligent, powerful, and cunning than any human. He is an angel, and comparing an angel to a human is like comparing air force 1 to a paper airplane. The fact that he has been able to create  a false science through which he has  decieved the world is of no suuprise. In fact, Jesus told us it would happen.  But for those who earnestly pray to God for wisdom and seek the truth, the truth is out there plain to see. Just whether or not we choose to see it.

How do you know the devil didn't write the bible? and that's all a lie?

Not confusing them.  I understand theories can have a mix of fact and opinion/things that have not been proved.  That was my whole point.  I'm just using a word that people are running away from.   

I had an interesting discussion with a recently retired astronomy professor the other day.  Never really thought about what a fascinating field it is to work/study/teach in.  I brought up the issue of life with him.  He said there is always an ongoing search for life in other parts of the universe from "regular" life (e.g., simple cells, etc.) to intelligent life.  No luck with either.  I asked him for the current prevailing scientific theory on the origin of life on earth.  He couldn't really say. 

Also, he said scientists never use absolutes.  They always use qualified language, because things change so often.  One of the things he loved to do was go into his class and tell them he was wrong, because they found something new. 

Very interesting stuff.  Gave me a different perspective of space.  I'm going to buy a telescope.  (Had one years ago but sold it.)

Why the fuck would I care what an astronomer thinks of abiogenesis? being a doctor or a professor aren't arguments in themselves.

dude I get being spiritual but religions are bullshit, the world makes sense, god has never been found in any gap, that will likely continue. Why not face reality? god might exist but science explains the creation properly, ie objectively.

Science is great.  I'm a big fan of science.  However, scientists are wrong about stuff all the fucking time.  Then when you factor in that this particular issue is very political, forgive me if I have my doubts.  There is a lot going on in the world right now and if there is one thing that I've learned it's that nothing is what it seems.


WTF? every climatology organization in the WORLD (meaning countries that hate us) agree that the earth is changing and man is to blame. Not one worldwide respected organization agrees with you.

Science is wrong sumtime so I tink may be rong bout dis becus I dunt lik.

There's no scientific proof that mankind's co2 emissions have any effect on what appears to some in the scientific community to be a natural cycle.



How can you say this when the artile is a study doing just that? That's the proof. Are you all retarded?

it's a fact, we know what causes the climate to shift, it's clearly man made.

Pray to jesus.

I agree there are times when terms need to be defined.  For example, people throw the word "lie" around a lot, but it's often misused, because the actual definition is a statement a person knows to be false at the time they make it, not simply a statement that turns out to be false.  I misuse that word sometimes too. 

But when someone is just trying to play word games, I don't usually participate. 

My position in this thread is there is no scientific theory for how life began on earth and that whatever belief anyone has about the origin of life on earth is at least in part a faith-based belief, because it cannot be proved. 

Ok, so the first issue is that you seem to be confusing theory and facts, there are theories, with many facts.

Autocatalytic theory for example explains life, do you buy it? well that depends on the weight of the evidence. I am throwing my hat in with natural order being maintained as we have never witnessed it otherwise.

15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getbig Gurus! Is this diet believable? Very low calories/protein. on: April 12, 2014, 08:18:04 AM
absolutely. The body does a great job keeping PH stable. But when your diet tilts in favor of acid, it has to use protein and calcium in the process that balances out the PH back  normal. Thus, jeeping the  filled with alkaline foods spares protein and calcium.  That's just one thing I know. Ill leave the rest unaddressed, except here I took a few minutes to dig up the amino acid profiles of broccoli and carrots

They aren't complete proteins, nice chart.

Also, I don't buy it, the acidic foods are far less acidic then our HCl, it makes no sense chemistry wise, you put and weak acid in a strong acid what do you get?

All kinds of stuff leach calcium from the bone, soda pop for example does, it's pointless.

I agree to an extent.  Yes the person and how they use is a huge factor.  The drug itself is a factor too.  Some are more dangerous than others. 

The problem with moderation is many people don't use legal or illegal drugs in moderation. 

Right, but that's their problem. Responsible adults shouldn't be handcuffed by the weak and mentally ill. It also harms no one.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/11/us/politics/sebelius-resigning-as-health-secretary.html?_r=0

The administration collapse is beginning...


WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.

Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said.

The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall.

Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy.

Even last week, as Mr. Obama triumphantly announced that enrollments in the exchanges had exceeded seven million, she did not appear next to him for the news conference in the Rose Garden.

The president is hoping that Ms. Burwell, 48, a Harvard- and Oxford-educated West Virginia native with a background in economic policy, will bring an intense focus and management acumen to the department. The budget office, which she has overseen since April of last year, is deeply involved in developing and carrying out health care policy.

“The president wants to make sure we have a proven manager and relentless implementer in the job over there, which is why he is going to nominate Sylvia,” said Denis R. McDonough, the White House chief of staff.

Last month, Ms. Sebelius approached Mr. Obama and began a series of conversations about her future, Mr. McDonough said. The secretary told the president that the March 31 deadline for sign-ups under the health care law — and rising enrollment numbers — provided an opportunity for change, and that he would be best served by someone who was not the target of so much political ire, Mr. McDonough said.

“What was clear is that she thought that it was time to transition the leadership to somebody else,” he said. “She’s made clear in other comments publicly that she recognizes that she takes a lot of the incoming. She does hope — all of us hope — that we can get beyond the partisan sniping.”

The resignation is a low point in what had been a remarkable career for Ms. Sebelius, who as governor of Kansas was named by Time magazine as one of the five best governors in the country and was even mentioned as a possible running mate for Mr. Obama in 2008. The two had bonded when Ms. Sebelius endorsed his presidential bid early in 2008, becoming one of the highest-profile Democratic women to back him over Hillary Rodham Clinton, and helping him deliver a big win in the Kansas caucus.

White House officials were quick to point out the many successes during Ms. Sebelius’s tenure: the end to pre-existing conditions as a bar to insurance, the ability for young people to stay on their parents’ insurance, and the reduction in the growth of health care costs. In addition, Ms. Sebelius helped push through mental health parity in insurance plans and worked with the Department of Education to promote early childhood education.

Ms. Sebelius said in an interview Thursday that she always knew that she would not “be here to turn out the lights in 2017.”

“My balance has always been, when do you make that decision?” she added.

The president had been under pressure for months to fire Ms. Sebelius. But he had resisted, in part because he did not want the Department of Health and Human Services to undergo more upheaval amid all the problems plaguing HealthCare.gov, and in part because of his general reluctance to publicly rebuke top officials.

In November, Mr. Obama defended the secretary, saying in an interview with NBC News that she “doesn’t write code; yeah, she wasn’t our I.T. person.” As recently as last week, Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, rejected any suggestion that Ms. Sebelius would be fired.

Mr. McDonough on Thursday praised Ms. Sebelius as “a fierce advocate,” and said she had been “tenacious in her belief” in the president’s health care law. “She’s fearless in her defense of this idea at the heart of the Affordable Care Act,” he said. “The president has commented to me countless times how much he admires that.”

But the Affordable Care Act faces a range of obstacles, political and otherwise, in the months ahead, and Mr. Obama is hoping that Ms. Burwell can smoothly steer the department and bring stability to its operations. In addition to the midterm elections, in which the health care law is the target of a flood of negative ads, the administration is grappling with policy questions: how it will levy the penalty on individuals who lack insurance, how much premiums will increase in the coming year, and how ultimately to administer the requirement that employers provide insurance.

Ms. Sebelius was not Mr. Obama’s first choice to lead the department; he wanted former Senator Tom Daschle in the job, but Mr. Daschle withdrew after acknowledging that he had underpaid his taxes for several years. She was hailed as a gifted political leader in Kansas who could work with legislators of both parties, but those skills were less evident in Washington, and she became a more distant figure within the administration.

In addition to the political battles over the passage and carrying out of the Affordable Care Act, she clashed with conservatives over contraception, and faced frequent calls for her political head by Republicans after the health care website failed to function properly last year.

In hearings on Capitol Hill, Ms. Sebelius sometimes grew rattled under grillings by lawmakers. In one hearing at the end of October, Ms. Sebelius declared that HealthCare.gov “has never crashed.”

“It is functional,” she added, “but at a very slow speed and very low reliability, and has continued to function.”

She made that statement even as large screens in the hearing room showed a live shot of the website with a page that said: “The system is down at the moment. We are experiencing technical difficulties and hope to have them resolved soon.”

An appearance on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” last October went even worse. Mr. Stewart challenged her to “sign up for Obamacare” before he could download every movie ever made. “We’ll see which happens first,” he joked. She struggled to defend the website and the health care law.

The television appearance prompted headlines like “Kathleen Sebelius’s Daily Show Disaster” and accusations from Republicans that she was being misleading. Democrats squirmed at her stiff and halting performance, which did little to inspire confidence in the website’s performance — or her own.

But Ms. Sebelius has not been at the center of public attention in recent weeks. After the poor public performances, her national television exposure has been limited, but she has continued to make small appearances and has been active on Twitter to press for people to sign up for insurance. She submitted to another grilling before a Senate committee Thursday and later acknowledged that the idea of not doing “a hearing every three weeks sounds pretty good to me.”

The president’s choice of Ms. Burwell to lead the Department of Health and Human Services places a relative outsider at the helm of one of the government’s largest bureaucracies. Ms. Burwell has led the president’s budget office since taking over for Jacob J. Lew, who is now the Treasury secretary.

Ms. Sebelius said she hoped — but did not expect — that her departure would represent the beginning of a more cooperative period in Washington to make health care better.

“If I could take something along with me,” she said, it would be “all the animosity. If that could just leave with me, and we could get to a new chapter, that would be terrific.”

Nope, not confused at all.

I grouped creationism and religion (and still would).

You wanted split them out, but you're too stupid to know the difference between creationism and creation science. 

I'll help you.

Creationism is a widely held belief that a divine being created the universe, humans, perhaps in the abstract, everything within.

Creation science is the failed attempt by a small group to apply scientific proof to the creationism belief.  And when I was in high school, the Supreme Court ruled it inappropriate for teaching in school.  For whatever that was worth - I attended multiple high schools and never once came across the teaching.

As for the change, I agree that we have made significant strides, but there is no massive push to eliminate creationism (or religion as I would argue).  There are no protests, no 'causes', in fact I don't know of any push whatsoever.  To me, it's not even close to being equivalent to civil rights or gay rights.

Yes creation science is different, what are the facts of each theory, could you compare and contrast them?

I think you can say that about many drugs if they are used in moderation. 

Agreed. That;s my point. It;'s the person not the drug. ALWAYS. the drug is the crutch of choice, some are more difficult to manage and probably positively correlate with illness. That is the worse the trauma/issue the harder the drug.

22  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Legalized Marijuana and the Crime Question on: April 10, 2014, 09:00:26 AM
I don't think a doctor talking about his experience and observations of patients is anecdotal.  It might fall within the literal definition, but that's not what anecdotes really are IMO (which I think are limited experiences a person has with someone or something). 

And not sure if you missed it, but he actually believes marijuana should be legal.  He is just intellectually honest about the health implications. 

He may be intellectually honest, I hope so, but he is misinformed. Also, people using a drug aka self medicating will mis use the drug. Small metered dosages of proper strains would help these people, these are addicts. They abuse Marijauna, smoke too much and it becomes consuming.

It's a very mild drug.

Vaccines can be useful and still carry extra benefits which are not needed. There's always more than one side to a problem.

no there isn't there is only one side for facts, many opinions. There is only one true side to a story, the truth. perhaps you should look for that instead of throwing your arms up in confusion serving out hollow platitudes like a macaque anal monkey looking for a bannana but plug.

My opinions on this website are worth the paper they are written on, just like yours and everyone else who posts here.

No, I don't care to read about an experiment that did not create life in a lab that mimicked the origin of life on earth. 

This is not a debate.  It's a discussion.  And no, I'm not going to play the Clinton-esque "it depends on what the definition of is, is" game.  I know what life means.  So do you.  If you're unclear about what life means, you can use a dictionary or use a "Google search." 

You can suggest all you want.  It hasn't been proved.  It hasn't been established using the accepted scientific methods. 

Dude defining terms is the basis of cogent discourse.

What exactly is your contention anyway? if life never began in a natural manner, are you suggesting that god created us in our current form initially? is that your position?

I am being serious here.
