IF and it's a big if, we were on a non rotating yet orbiting planet the dinosaur would not have needed an inner ear. It's only on a rotating planet such an instrument of balance would be needed.Once…Continue

Trying to comment on religious posts on youtube.

Posted on July 4, 2010 at 11:07am 3 Comments

I took up one of the links on A/N and wandered of into religious la la land. One uploader got my goat a little so i tried to reply in a reasoned way, like you do. He has uploaded a number of videos but the two I attempted to take him to task for were one about trying to make Noah's Ark explainable through science and reason (I know WTF straight away), and the other trying to assert Atheists have a dogma and are comparable to Nazis. So I brought up the matter of the Catholic church's…


I simply did not know where to post this, and i don't know if you've seen it before.

Having been brought up by Catholics i find the similarities between the behaviour patterns in all three Abrahamic faiths seriously, seriously disturbing. I'm just going to put up a link i found in Jihad Watch from 2006 not knowing if it's old news. Even so as the goatherders begin to force sharia law upon this country it is perhaps even more relative today. Incisive, scholarly and a very thought provoking discussion.… Continue

The inconvenience of history.

The reason the Abrahamic triumvirate commits genocide against stone age tribes ie: Australia's aboriginals, is because it eradicates our history as well. We too were hunter gatherers as well and in the attempted cultural and in many cases actual genocide of such peoples covers this up from a historical perspective. I really do not know the bible that well but as far as i understand it do they not go from Adam and Eve to extant agricultural and urban societies in a couple of chapters. So…


A Bedtime Story For Evolutionists And All Other Non-Believers.

If as I am proposing that somewhere in our history we were a non rotating orbiting planet. Could I not take this opportunity to add a dash of imagination to the proceedings and take you to a land far far away where the moon was the cause of mass species extinction.

Now children if we're sitting comfortably Mother's hour is about to begin.

So; once upon a time we had a globe with one land mass upon it. Now we all know what happens to mass on a rotating object do you remember going to… Continue

Greetings, david! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

I have heard a few performances of the Concerto in F, but the one that truly works for me is an OLD one: Kostelanetz conducting, Andre Previn at the keyboard.

The two of them make the whole thing WORK ... and the cakewalk in the 2nd movement? It sure as hell STRUTS!

I like the cakewalk as a style of music. George Gershwin wrote one into the second movement of his Concerto in F, and I really enjoy the way it STRUTS.

Did you find it okay? Was it all that you were hoping for?

Oh that - be warned, the youtube comment system is all messed up. even I've lost track of who is replying to who.


Try clicking "see all" and "see all" again.

Scroll to the bottom, and read from the bottom up, however, replies to a comment, counter intuitively hang underneath comments so you start reading down the page again.

We're an under-represented bunch here: The Brits, it's true.

It is ironic, that I so often spend so long on the front page just reading the forums and going to the groups, that I didn't find your message to me on my page until just now! :P

So pleased you are enjoying the Academic Earth website. I was listening last night to a lecture about the Doppler Effect.

It's OK. I wasn't worried.

No worries, David. Like I said, I like your inquisitive spirit. Curiosity is one of the best parts of life. It can be frustrating to bump up against orthodoxy, no matter where you find it, but at least in science, orthodoxy is usually backed up by a lot of evidence and research. Not always, but usually, and over time, theories either firm up or are discarded (or more likely, modified). For something like evolution, there are still plenty of questions that haven't been answered, but the broad strokes seem to be pretty solid. The Yucatan impact seems to have solid evidence behind it from a variety of angles, so I think it's highly likely that it's the right explanation. That said, we don't have videotape of the event, so I'm sure there are details we'll never know.

As to attention deficit, I don't struggle with that (at least, I don't think so), but one nice thing about Wikipedia is that you can kind of jump around in it and pick things up in bite-size chunks. I rarely read an entire Wikipedia entry; I usually skip around from section to section, looking for answers to specific questions. Give it a shot. Nobody's asking you to write a book report. :)

Nice to meet you David.

I love reading the discusions you've added so far. I don't have much of a science background, yet at the same time a great deal of passion for it. When I ask questions, it's mostly out of curiosity. Thanks for your replies.
