Knives, can you please give some empirical examples of this vs scripture?

This, I will never understand.  Why would anyone be afraid of obliteration?  If it' moment you are alive, the next you are non-existent, why is that scary?  You wouldn't know wouldn't be there right?  I don't understand the fear of obliteration.  

What things have been found that refute nature as being designed?

Does the "vast phenomena" ever astound you?

How do you think life originated?  

Well, the Genesis story doesn't hold much weight in any scientific community. There is no evidence for the flood. It is certainly not scientifically feasible to create a man from dirt and then a woman from his rib. There is also no evidence that Egyptians ever had Hebrew slaves. I could go on but I think the point is made.

Also of the fear of obliteration, most people I talk to find that very scary! Many want to think that they will continue to exist, in an after life, and that they will say deceased loved ones, etc, again. Of the people I talk to the greatest fear many have is death without an after life. I mean if it does happen that way it clearly wouldn't matter after one has been obliterated because he or she wouldn't be around to "feel" any type of thing, but that can still be a scary thought.

Things about nature not being designed: I am admittedly no expert, but according to physics/biology as we understand it today, most life today has come into being as a result of random mutations taking place in various molecules. Eventually complex organisms with genetic material were formed over billions of years and here we stand today. There is certainly much more to it, but generally a theory of random yet favorable mutations which create organisms capable of surviving to continue to reproduce can explain how we are here without a designer.

Finally, as I said before I'm simply a beginning grad student and I can't explain all of life's mysteries. I am going to be a research scientist so that I can do my own investigations into finding out how the world works. I don't claim to know everything about the universe and the life that inhabits it, but I like to keep learning more from ways that can be proven through science.  I like to be able to prove what I know and I can't take a mystic answer for anything. I admit that there are many things I don't know, and I will spend the rest of my life trying to learn what I can.

  Did you find out as to how Einstein doing since 1955? Your big bang theory, the observable universe is 93 billion light years across and so on explains nothing.
 Do you have kids? If they unexpectedly die today is it evolution, newton's laws, maxwell's equation or theory of relativity?
 Based on what you have written so far your iq level is a bit higher than TA has! TA is just attempting to sound enlightened or educated. He knows word combinations like multiverse and string theory and assuming naively religous people didn't hear about those.

You fail to make even a coherent argument, then claim intelligence. I don't know if you're trying to impress people but I doubt if anyone is.

Scientific theory does its best to explain the facts that we observe. As we find out more, it is improved. The big bang theory certainly isn't perfect, but right now in the scientific community, in those esoteric circle where people dedicate their lives to studying this stuff it is the most widely accepted view about how the universe has been created. It follows valid astronomical data.

I don't even understand the kids dying part nor will I try to. If you care to understand why people die, that is more a biological question and you are free to make your own investigations. The laws of physics you have listed are still always valid as usual.

Personally I think the bold is few and far least in free countries.

Why do you think that? Don't most people just tend to adopt the religious ideas of their parents? It need not be forceful but most people just believe what they are told since their youth, rather than investigating and finding answers on their own.

they do not have to be at odds it just depends on how you look at them...religion can indeed be experimented on...death is its experiment.

as an aspiring scientist you should be keenly aware that not having proof doesnt disprove a theory, so why do you believe that there is no God when you have no proof?

not proving the null does not prove the what is your proof that God doesnt exist?

They definitely are at odds. There is far more to religion than death, though that is a big part of why many people are religious, because they're scared of obliteration. Religions attempts to argue why we were created, what the supreme force is in the universe, and so on.

Without any support or evidence, we have no basis for a theory. Theory attempts to explain natural phenomena (evolution, Newton's laws, Maxwell's equations, relativity, etc) and is refined or thrown out when necessary.

The explanation of nature by the design of a God seemed plausible thousands of years ago when it was proposed, but we have moved much further in our knowledge, and by careful experiment and deduction found out many more things than were immediately apparent. Based on what we know now the ideas of religion seem just too provincial and simple to explain the vast phenomena we have observed.

We cannot yet prove or disprove any sort of God, but with the laws we have so far deduced, we have not needed a God hypothesis to explain anything.

I see a lot of unbelievers here feel that science and the Christian Bible are at odds w/each other.

Other than the theory of (macro) evolution, what aspects of science do you feel are in opposition to the bible?

In science one only entertains theories and hypotheses that can be proven by experimental evidence. Theories such as evolution and the big bang (cosmology) are widely accepted in the scientific community rather than intelligent design because they can better explain what we observe experimentally. In science one makes a theory to describe what we observe, and then as we discover more things or find inadequacies in the theory, it is thrown out and replaced or refined to better fit what we observe.

In religion one must accept what one is told or reads based on faith, generally due to indoctrination from the time of youth, because one's family tells one what to believe, or he or she is too scared to believe otherwise (ie: fear of not knowing what happens after death).

As an aspiring professional scientist (I will begin graduate studies next month), I have to admit that science and religion are necessarily at odds. Although there are plenty of scientists who believe in God, it is simply in stark contrast to the very nature of scientific investigation to simply believe something for which there is no evidence. Thousands of years ago when the earth seemed flat and the sky seemed unreachable, it seemed likely that an intelligent being created life, that heaven is in the sky, etc, but with scientific advancement those notions have long been supplanted.

Falling in love is the best feeling in the world but here are some tips to help you out.

Never fall in love with the following:

female ten years younger or ten years older than you
Your boss
A celebrity
Your subordinate
Any of your wife's friends
Someone who hasn't graduated high school. *(Take that either way)
Someone with children unless you have children
Someone on the internet
Someone who lives in your neighborhood
Your friends wife, ex-wife, girlfriend or ex-girlfriend
A hooker Grin
and finally a hooker Grin

Follow these rules and you'll do well in the love department...This is Wiggs signing off.

Solid advice

But you could add females who have no direction in life, or have accumulated credit card debt, or are overly involved in a pointless cause (PETA, vegans, goth chicks, etc)

The problem is simply due to women not dating enough before getting 'serious'. A woman has to date about 10 assholes before they can fully appreciate a nice guy. Dating that many men isn't culturally acceptable because women have been trained to think gold coins fall out of their pussies so you have a bunch of skanks running around who think they deserve a nice guy just by virtue of having a warm hole between their legs.

so true...

I don't think that list applies to good looking women

i always have a laugh when i see these stupid diets in flex, now i eat like normal people do and still maintain weight and make progress, without the monster protein intake and these shitty supplements.

i've done the same, with the same results.

yeah diet is overrated in bodybuilding also, how often you dont see guys who look great but never heard of eating protein.

very often.  how about the bodybuilders of the 70s?

i've never seen anyone who ate well but trained like a sissy with a good physique

likewise i've seen people who ate crap but trained balls to the wall develop impressively

17  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: ANYONE IN HERE KNOW CHEMISTRY? A23? on: September 07, 2008, 05:30:33 PM
I'm a junior chem major at college and I'd say good math skills are important.  There isn't too much explicit math, except in P. Chem (like someone else said), but spatial reasoning skills are important when you need to determine a chemical structure, and you need problem-solving skills when you are determining how to synthesize a product with a sequence of reactions like in Organic Chemistry.  I've always had excellent math skills and it has translated into success for me in Chemistry so far.

Take General Chemistry at any 4 year institution and it should give you a good idea how you will fare, of course keeping in mind that it will continue to get much harder.

Ha! My Da was a organic chem prof for 35 years. One of the smartest guys I've ever/still known. 'Course I don't tell him that.  Wink

Why not?

Many things come into play, frequence of lifting and of course recovery all together.

One thing that helps my lower back is doing some good mornings after squats, i do 3 sets of 5 reps and i use about 50% of my squat max for the GM's.

If you are having back pain, i would take some time off any squating/deadlifting for a week or two and then come back light for a few weeks.

if you are like me, then squating heavy and deadlfting heavy in the same week is impossible. if i go heavy on squats, then my next dead lift workout is dynamic and based on speed. likewise, if my squat workout is light(speed), then my deadlifting that week will be ME and all singles. i keep squats and deads about 4 days apart and i could never make gains doing them on the same day.

I alternate like this.

Week 1 - Tues(Speed squats), Sat(ME Deadlifts)
Week 2 - Tues(Heavy squats), Sat(DE Deadlifts)

I'm not sure how your program is structured anymore, so let me know what split you are currently doing.


I actually took a week off of lifting completely last week, so I don't know why the lower back problem hit me this week.  I don't remember injuring myself.  But I think I'll take a week off of squats/deadlifts, and then start out light and get back into it.

My current routine is this:

Close Grip Bench 4-6 reps (alternate heavy and speed)
Military Press on Smith Machine 6-10 reps
Weighted Dips 6-10 reps
Rope tricep pulldown 8-12 reps

Deadlift 3,2,3 reps (alternate with speed deadlift)
Alternate wide grip/close grip weighted pullups 6-12 reps
DB or cable row 8-12 reps

BB Bench 3,2,3 reps (alternate with DB flat bench)
Incline DB Bench 6-10 reps
Cable flyes 8-12 reps
DB hammer curl 6-10 reps
preacher curl 8-12 reps

Squats (alt heavy/speed) 4-6 reps
Leg extension 15-20 reps
Leg curl 10-15 reps
seat and/or standing calf 10-15 reps

I'll probably put the good mornings in

Hey OL, my lower back has felt very weak lately, and it really affects my squats and deadlifts, and some other lifts.  It hurts a little bit, but it really just feels like it can't handle the pressure of those lifts when i want to go heavy.  should i intentionally go light for the next few weeks and see if it gets better, or should i stop those movements altogether for a little while?

I skipped one period at low bodyfat 10-12% estimate but I don't see 20-25% causing a period to be skipped. 

In high school I was in track but never stopped having my period.  Maybe track isn't a sport Undecided

thanks, just what i thought
23  Getbig Womens Area / Open Talk for Girl Discussion / Re: Can a girl stop having her period from playing sports? on: August 27, 2008, 04:21:00 AM
Two questions:

How old were they when they claim that happened?

At what bodyfat level were they?

In high school, and the bodyfat of an "average" girl (~20-25%)
24  Getbig Womens Area / Open Talk for Girl Discussion / Can a girl stop having her period from playing sports? on: August 26, 2008, 07:33:19 PM
So I was having a discussion with some friends (they're all female and I'm a male) and they claimed that if a girl plays any kind of sport she will stop having her period.  It didn't make any sense to me, but it was hard to argue with them because they claimed that it had happened to them.

Girls, is there any truth to this?
