    That was uncalled for, wasn't it?

    Which part of the periodic table changing over the years is a modification of a universal claim in order to exclude a specific case?

    No, it is uncalled for you to constantly harp on these same old tragedies. We are all aware that people have made errors and acted in poor judgment, but to rub real deaths in peoples faces is disrespectful.

    I am not going out on a limb at all. Also I base what I say on rock solid science. When the Ice melts that means the ocean level goes up. That would be ok, but the problem is we have storm surges. That is a big problem in England where they spent a lot of money to try to protect themselves. Lots of people in lots of places are having problems dealing with flooding and storm surges. The problem with NY is they are pretty much a sitting duck. The global warming causes the tropical storms that are hitting the East Coast. The west coast does not have this problem because the water is cold there. So we now have a situation that what was not suppose to happen for 60 to 100 years is already hitting NYC.

    Shanghi in China is considered the worlds most modern city. But they have the same problem as New Orleans. So for them flooding is not a question of IF flooding is a question of when. The more dirty fuel they burn in China the more your going to have global warming and the sooner Shanghi is going to have problems with "natural" disasters. Although like New Orleans their "natural" disaster is really more man made. Shanghi is considered to be the center for the arts in China. If you want to study fashion, or be a model, or anything like that, then you go to Shanghi to go to school.

    Yes, that was sarcasm. The prediction that something somewhere will flood is not much of a stretch.

    Can anyone tell me what is stopping people from challenging the theory of evolution? Why aren't creationists doing it? Surely they can get the funds to do the actual science. They spent over 20 million creating the Creation "Museum", so why can't they spend a few million dollars on real scientific research? What is stopping them?

    Simple answer: actual science does not refute evolution.

    Not only that, but every time someone replies to him in a manner that he doesn't like, the answer is this:

    Also, you have to understand something before you can challenge it. For over a decade now I've been asking every creationist I come across, whether online or in 'real life', to give definition of the ToE that a biologist would recognize. Not one of them has ever come close. As such, they have no clue what a case against evolution would even look like. Most of their assertions don't even rise to level of 'wrong'.

    Creationists are showing up to a basketball game with a hockey stick, saying 'OK, we're ready to play Monopoly'.

    Just to end your decade of melodrama, evolution is descent with modification; a change in alleles of a population over time.

    Those words mean nothing coming from someone who takes pride in being willfully ignorant of the subject. You may as well have typed gibberish.

    Suit yourself, but for the record, you said:
    If you're telling me a biologist wouldn't recognize that because it came from an ignit like me, then I would say he's got a problem.

    So as far as I'm concerned, your decade of melodrama at our expense is over.

    That was funny.

    Sorry EFM, but you just got pwned. Except AV, it's "...a change in allele frequency...

    Thanks, Blayz ... I think that's the second time you corrected me on that. I keep saying "a change in alleles" for some reason.

    I know what I said. Or rather, I know what I meant. I could have been clearer, though.
