Melee Guardian - G2vsG3 in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 7067
Profile #3
Playing a solo guardian in gf2 was easy. It's... just... that... it's... trickier? In gf3. But, I still had no problem with it. I managed to beat the demo playing solo melee guardian, dying only twice. Once while fighting the warped creator. The other time a vlish hit me by suprise.
Yes! I'm a mercenary! (So pay 500 bucks and I'll kill this part.)

Yes, I think your right. (As I didn't come here to discuss real life.) I'm tired of discussing the same old boring theorys. So let us talk about more interesting things such as: the ring theory the flat earth theory the world sits on a turtle's back theory...
And the list goes on and on.
Yes' I have been rated as a imp! (well it is fun to be optimistic) I guess imp=demon. As I always considered myself sortof bad, but mostly good. I guess I'll be a reformed demon?

The point with the gene in the bones is that mutations can and do create new properties that can be beneficial or at least are not inherently descructive. In other words, not all mutations are harmful (not directly your claim, but closely related) and the second section shows that new info is indeed added contrary to your claim. Care to comment or would you be willing to refine your stance on genetics?

I never said that mutetions are always bad. Matter of fact I believe some are good, at least for the animals they happen in. (Such as rats becoming resistant to rat poison.)

As far as old rocks, take any rock found to be in excess of 1 million years as shown by appropriate radiometric dating methods. How do you reconcile the existence of these isotopic ratios consistent with the decay rates and predicted theoretical models?

Dispite the very many things I could say I'll just ask: how does dna last even a million years.

You have a very naive view of what makes a good argument if you want to argue about radiometric dating by saying just saying its arguable and not presenting an argument.
I was not trying to argue against a statement that says "They have found billion year old rocks." I can't argue with someone who says something, but doesn't tell me what it is. All I was trying to do was show him that he needs to show me what he is talking about. Did you not get the:"just as good as your argument" thing?

Personally, it's insulting that you dismiss this claim out of hand especially when I tend to know a lot about it.

I certianly did not mean to insult you, but I couldn't understand what rocks he was talking about.

Could you please comment on your previous assertion that mutations can create no new genes in light of the documented evidence to the contrary.

Your link in the quotation doesn't work. And I don't have time to look up all the different things they show, but some of them meannothing such as:"A mutation in humans makes bones strong (Boyden et al. 2002)." There are two substances (major) that make up bones. One of them(great, I can't think of the name now) Makes it harder-stronger the other makes it more flexible. Thus, if you remove the flexibleness of that one it will make it harder-stronger.

How do you justify things that are tested and found to be older than the Earth, then? What about fossils?

Yes,I know I still can't figure out how DNA managed to be still there after billions of years.

First, (Dintiradan hit this point) macro evolution is the adding of genes. This is what I disagree with.
Second, micro evolution is the changing of genes. I agree with this.
Third, mutations just take away genes. This, I agree with too.
quote:
Major, are you supporting hard creationism? Not ID? The "world was made 6000 years ago" theory?
Yes, but, not 6,000 years ago more like 8,000-15,000 years ago.
ID didn't go over well because most of the general public already either believes in a god or they don't want to believe in a god.

No, it hasn't been proven. I'll try to give a example of how they teach you it has been proven: Look at all the different types of dogs do you see how they change? there's the wolf the fox regular dogs and... This is evolution. And science has proven that they can change. Part 2: evolution takes billions of years to change animals such as dogs to cats and other creatures this is evolution.
Since science has proven evolution creationism is wrong.
Alorael, your post cotained the most twisted truths, messed up facts, and showed more signs of somebody being brainwashed than I have ever seen on this forum so far. (Sorry for having to put it so bluntly.)

So you're rejecting the theory/"hypothises"/whatever simply because it contradicts your religious beliefs? Wow.
Yes, what better reason could I have? (Yes, I do look at the facts before I judge it. But, it comes down to creationism vs. macro evolution. And I personally think there is more evidence pointing to creationism.)

That is, of course, unless you believe in a religion which has a Creation story and which contradicts the theory of Natural Selection and also believe that the strong cannot influence the weak.
Yes, I believe in a creation theory. And yes, it contradicts the weak "theory" of Natural Selection. But yes in that the strong can influence the weak. But, however, there were only two people back when things were made and they were in perfect harmony with the creator so they didn't fight over the names. Of course after the tower of Babel they might have, sorry I didn't think of that.

“I do pretty much exactly the same. I wither do that, or remember it for a little while and then forget it before I get to tell someone, which may happen in a space less than half an hour, depends on what I'm doing at the time.”
This happens to me most of the time to. But, in a effort to get this back on topic (sort of) I’ll try to type my most recant dream.
The first part of my dream I remember is that I was walking down the center isle of a church. And two men were assigned to each stained glass window and instead of a pulpit there was a stair at the end of the isle. So I walked down to the stairs and started up them, then a bunch of bombers flew over and started bombing the building I was in. (This was the worst part of my dream as I played coward every time a squad of bombers flew over.) After they left I finished going up the stairs and found the captain of the place there. The place behind the church was something like a hotel, but a lot smaller. So I walked into the room to my left and just as got in another flight of bombers came over so I hid in the closet. As soon as they left I went back to the captain of the place but, found him dead so I told someone (I don’t remember who now) that I was going out to the parking lot outside the hotel-church. I got about to the edge of the park and then saw another flight of bombers coming, but this time escorted by a helicopter so me and my friend went to go too (I forgot) and met two girls and then ran back to a car… then in a frenzy the helicopter started shooting… then I saw a barrel of a machinegun turn around the car. As the helicopter came into view it started shooting as the bullets were about to kill me I woke up in an effort to save myself. Of course that ended the dream.

Really? How many Native Americans or other minorities you know share that view?
Maybe your right as far as out of state. Not far away from my house is a place called firelake grocery it gives bonuses to all of its indian workers such as they start higher up the work chain,.... and there are places throughout the state like this some bigger some smaller but, as far as local jobs it wouldn't be hard to get a fair paying job.

Item number 4 has personally become very apparent to me. When I spent a few years helping out incoming engineering students, those that came from poor areas would be the most difficult. Statistically most would fail. Is it because they don't work or are not smart? Definitely not.

I think everybody goes to the same schools here.
quote:
From what I've seen this thing is typical and only a small part of the problem. So how can you say that Native Americans, the worst off of all minorities has EVERY opportunity white males have? Virtually every statistic says otherwise.

The first part of that I got lost in so I'll look at the second(not knowing what else to do)| Not every, But as many oppertunitys to move up. What statistics?

As to saying that it's just a few rich tribes you could be right.(But, that means I'm living near every single one of them which seems highly unlikely.)
As to saying there averagely poorer than the the average American as those stats say. Then with the help of government money the the last generation should have been okay.
(On a different note how much does your wife make on government money?)
Also have you ever thought that it's because of the government money that they're not doing good? Seriously they have every opperitunity to make money as the average white male if not more.
Oh and i* that website didn't say much more to convince me than your actual post matter of fact it convinced me more that they should just become American citizens Without their own government.
As for the trail of tears I have read about studied on it. Yes we were wrong but, the problem was then was that we wouldn't take them in as US citizens. Which is what we should do now.
