Nosy likes a lively discussion as much as the next old guy. He's merely trying to enforce the rules.

Yes, the arbitrary, annoying rules.........


"Behold My signifigance!" said SirPimpsalot, and all was right. "I am the Lambda and the Kappa, the Second and the Runner-Up."

Start one
Carry these over to Origin of Life and role away with it.

Sticking to topics is just something you have to do around here.

I'll be gone for a fair number of hours. If someone else doesn't hold this to topic then it'll be shut down when I return.

The rules
If you don't want to be held to the rules you agreed to then we have a place for you.

You may, if you wish to suggest changes to rules, start a thread in suggestions. There are very good reasons for the rules which can be discussed there.

And obviously life requires a very specific atomic combination, or we could just throw protein molecules together left and right and make life.......

Obviously it doesn't, or else all life would be identical.

Clearly that's not the case.

I'm just disagreeing, as any person who has the ability to logically deduce would......

Ah, but deduction doesn't apply here, as the first principles of the universe are not known to us. All we have avaliable is empirical induction.

I appreciate that you believe you're employing logic; what you've succeeded in is inducting from your own prejudices. Before you post again why don't you try a little education, first? Combine your rationality with some education in the biological sciences and who knows what you might accomplish?

At any rate, I think we've said all that there is to say. As it is we've rapidly exceeded your level of biological education.

The atomic combination required is obviously on a short list........or else, like I said, you could just throw viable proteins together willy nilly and make life, right?

Re: The rules
Sir Pimpsalot, it seems you are posting contrary to Forum Guidelines concerning
posting under more than one ID.

Your other ID was warned about this. I will give you a few minutes to respond but you will be suspended.

No, just someone who's recognized the utility in actually finding out about a subject before opening his mouth about it.

Wow, you Admins are QUICK........I practically had a freakin' neon sign attatched to my chest..........

Oh NOOOOOOO!!!!! Now I'll have to go through the trouble of making another ID! Woah is me!

Why make new ones? Take existing ones.

Think it through, for once.

That's not how I roll......
