aw. that's so sweet.

see. little things like this will someday lead to world peace. people just need to get over themselves and think of someone else once in a while.

A trio from Mini Ditki
All posted 12/28/05, within about 2 1/2 hours.

In order of posting:

Forum: Announcements
Thread: Attention All EvC Members
Post #: 25

As someone who has been a lurker, but not a poster, for many months let me tell you that this board serves a great purpose.

Another testimony that the main useful function of this forum may well be the presenting of information to the lurkers.

Name: Mini Ditki
Forum: Coffee House
Thread: Abortion
Post #: 213

It seems to me that being against sexual education and birth control is to directly support unwanted pregnancy and to indirectly support an increased number of abortions.

If you are REALLY pro-life life then you MUST be pro birth-control.

No further comment.

Science is NOT atheist, it is non-theist. Science has no opinion on god. The existence or non-existence of god is completely irrelevant to science.

Off-topic (or is it?) in that most muddled of topics, and nothing that hasn't been said many, many times before. But I think this is probably the most fundamental point of the evolutionist side of the argument.

Remember, the POTM forum topics are not the place to debate the issues. In the above cases, 2 of the 3 topics may also not be the best places to debate the presented themes.

Moose

Added by edit: Mini Ditka has taken the themes of numbers 1 and 3 above, to messages 153 and 154 of the "The Evolution of " topic. That newer location is probably a preferred place to be discussing those themes. That said, the admin-mode has suggested the possibilty of taking the theme of number 3 to a "Great Debate".

Perfect job of putting two similar gods into context with multiple similar gods. Short and sweet.

JonF, on determining decay rates and half lives

Post #: 254

It's not normal to pass out POTM nominations for messages whose content is largely a quotation from a reference, but I'm going to do it beause, well, it was some fresh information that I don't recall having seen around here before. I think I may even have learned something, and it's not easy for someone to pound some knowledge into a moose skull.

Schraf again
She does a lot of posts that this one exemplifies.

Message 65

She exhibits no annoyance (a new years resolve of mine), explains her view simply and offers an opportunity to learn (that will not be taken).

This shows the huge gulf in the two different ways of thinking. On one hand is the open-minded skeptic who simply asks for the evidence. While pretty sure of the conclusion she is still willing to listen to what evidence is made available. On the other hand we have... well we can see what we have.

NotSoBlindFaith offers a detailed response
Message 287

NSBF doesn't just ignore what is posted. He takes each issue and gives a good shot at it. He offers references and reasoning.

This is very unusual from his side of the fence and I think this post is an excellent example of the form needed.

He also minimizes any nasty remarks.

I may think that he has a lot of facts wrong but it is still a good post.

Golfer manages to top himself
Message 276

I didn't bother to read the whole thing but the first 3 paragraphs are as good an example of nonsense as we ever get posted. It is competitive with anything that Brad has managed and is even couched on a form that would fool the unknowing.

He has to be given credit for creativity. :)

(btw, I am not trying to use this as criticism of the content -- nothing he posts is worth bothering with. It is just sooo delicious I want to make sure that everyone notices it. )

PurpleYouko, I agree an spontaneous fission likely happens with enriched isotopes that have half lives of 2.65 years. In the natural sediments though your talking much longer half lives. If neutrons and protons are decaying into helium it appears to me to still be more of a cold fussion reaction. These decay rates are by 4 atomic weights, etc... Its not like tritium that you can hit with a hammer an get a release of neutrons. I agree neutrons are being released from radon but bonded to protons and consistently decaying by 4 atomic weights.

To produce C14 you still need N14 to absorb a neutron and you need pore spaces of a foot or more so neutrons are not absorbed instead by the sediment particles.

The link I had on Radon talked of two neutrons and two protons bonded and is expressed as the alpha decay particle being expelled out of the nucleous and gamma radiation. If you look at the decay rates the atomic weights reduce 4 for each decay, in agreement with neutrons combining with protons. This supports in the earth were seeing cold fussion not spontaneous fission. If it was spontaneous fission it should be decaying neutrons without protons like tritium. It always appears to be a proton in the works, with a reduced atomic weight of 4. This consistency supports cold fussion and not spontaneous fission, etc...

Re: Schraf again
I'm not meaning to question a choice for POTM, but I am sincerely wondering if you cited the one you meant to. In your nom you said...

She exhibits no annoyance

Yet the first four responses (before I stopped reading) were almost entirely insults. Certainly the first two were. I scanned the rest and there didn't seem to be much there (as in amount of writing), with a relative repetition of how the other poster was gullible.

Schraf can write well sometimes, so its not that I was surprised she was nominated, but your description of the post seems totally different than what I found at the other end of the link. If you did mean that post, I apologize. Just raising the question of a possible error.
