Please do start a new topic.

It's proposed, Coyote. If we can get it promoted, looking forward to egukating some common sense into you sheeple. (Coyote-sheeple) (what's wrong with that picture?)

The immeasurable present eternally extends the infinite past and infinitely consumes the eternal future.

Re: Please Create a New Topic, Buz
Thanks. See you there.

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Buzsaw responds to me:

the skyjumping quote is not from me.

I didn't say it was.

I don't know where you got it.

Then you clearly didn't read my post because right before I gave the quote, I indicated where it came from:

As the head of the International Ski Federation said:

If you aren't going to read the posts you're responding to, perhaps you shouldn't respond.

As for the rest of your stuff, you simply pshaw almost 6000 years of recorded human history relative to the genders and the role each play in human culture.

Huh? I ask you for evidence and all you can do is assert? Human culture has advanced significantly since we considered abandoning things like racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. Now, I don't think we've done away with them, not by a long shot. But life has become a great deal better than when there were slaves, women were treated as property, and gay people were killed.

Moderns are the odd people out and we're paying a price for it.

With longer lives, more stable relationships, better standards of living, greater literacy, greater education...exactly what is this "price" that you're talking about that was so dear it could not be paid? You didn't think you had a right to tell other people how to be happy, did you?

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

Re: Voting Rights
I grew up in Wyoming where the majority of men effectively apprised their women on voting wisdom. However too many of them unwisely ignored the phenomenal fact of the male leadership role throughout human history and in most of the animal kingdom ever since the recording of history.

Since women are more emotional and easily persuaded and manipulated, imo, voting is not included in their role, though their legitimate role in culture is no less important than that of the male.

Why, Dr Adequate, have most door to door sales companies advocated dealing with the woman of the house?

But could you make your point more explicit?

In my post I just expressed enthusiasm for states and nations which permitted women to vote as well as men.

Are you against this? Do you believe that the vote should be restricted to men only?
