Please promote Faith's latest Proposed Topic
I think Faith's proposed topic is a great initial post to allow the many lurkers out there to learn a little about why landscapes of the various periods of time shown in geology are not simply assumptions but rather just like everything else in reality conclusions based on solid evidence as opposed to the caricature fantasy of the Biblical Flood she presents.

A Vote against promoting jar's topic of YE dating
I don't want to engage in a Great Debate with jar on this subject. As you say in your first post to his proposal, there is really nothing more to say than that YE is based on the Biblical framework.

Faith's PNT regarding GMOs
As for GMOs I've been considering putting together a Coffee House OP on it as Nosy suggested, but I think I'd have to know more about Ayyadurai's study to do that.


I would like to see you promote this topic about formaldehyde accumulation in GMOs, I think it could be very informative. It will also tie into the topic about peer-review (although not necessarily Einstein's position).

Here: Do GMOs Accumulate Formaldehyde is the link to the actual paper which should be the basis for any discussion of the topic, since that is where these findings were published and what any discussion by Dr. Ayyadurai should be based on (unless there is follow-up work which would be good to bring to the table as well). You should probably take your time and do your homework before promoting it and have some good arguments as to why you believe this is a convincing study.

This topic could possible go into 'Is it Science' as an option to 'Coffee House'

Whoever calls me ignorant shares my own opinion. Sorrowfully and tacitly I recognize my ignorance, when I consider how much I lack of what my mind in its craving for knowledge is sighing for... I console myself with the consideration that this belongs to our common nature. - Francesco Petrarca

"Nothing is easier than to persuade people who want to be persuaded and already believe." - another Petrarca gem.

Ignorance is a most formidable opponent rivaled only by arrogance; but when the two join forces, one is all but invincible.

Re: Faith's PNT regarding GMOs
I find myself getting into new things and farther away from this topic so it would be a while before I got back to it. If you think you have a handle on the information, how about you start the thread? I may or may not catch up with it later.
