"They used to think it was suspended in some kind of ether, or that there was a substance between everything and they just labelled it as ethere. From what I understand all that stuff is suspended in nothing. It's just there in a vacuum."
"Evidence for the colors of dinosaurs has actually been found in the last few years, in the form of melanosomes -- organelles containing different types of melanin -- surviving in fossils:
Dinosaur True Colors Revealed for First Time (National…"
"Serious thoughts on dinosaurs now. We do not now know (and never could know) their colors.
Never say never. Or almost never :) Maybe someone will get dinosaur DNA, splice it into chicken DNA, out comes a lavender chicken. And you could say,…"
"We once believed that dinosaurs never existed even though we had their bones. I was taught that dinosaur skeleton's are "tricks of the devil." Fundyism moves right on along then teaching that mankind and dinosaurs existed together as…"
"What reason would that creature have to stand upright if it could just jump up and flap its wings to peer over the grasses?

"Here is an interesting article I found just yesterday published in 1981 discussing the effort of Creationists to misrepresent the Laws of Thermodynamics. This debate has been going on for a long time, and in the article it apparently has been going…"
To answer your question (redneck post): yes, I'm pretty much a hometown boy. I have close friends and relatives that ride motorcycles. They're not 'necks, but I still don't like their cycles. I'm sure they stick their noses up at my classical music (and jazz).
