Archaeopteryx
It appears it was an argument about how unlikely it was that Archaeopteryx had an avian/saurian connection.

Re: Yesterday All My Troubles Seemed So far Away
I've always liked asking hard questions.

I don't think my first post is extant--I recall calling someone on a point of law: nator agreed with me, and I've loved her ever since.

In my first post showing now, I hammered CanadianSteve about his Islamophobia.

Maybe they got him.

I miss Robin the most, but I miss spidey, too, and Para... Of course, they could be here under new nicks, I haven't checked. I was about to go looking for molbiogirl when she turned up.

I recall ferocious battles with Iano, randman, Faith...suspensions...

You can see where all this debate goes. here's my take: Forget It. You come to canda, you follow our laws. If you cannot live comfortably with them, then do not come here.

So you new Canadians are following the traditional laws of the Native peoples there?

How many generations must Muslin immigrants wait before they have a right to be politically active and seek democratic change?

Crash Vs Jar - 20,000 Posts - OMG!!!
BG writes:

Shall we start betting on who's going win the race to 20,000 first?

Will it be Jar or Crashfrog?

My money is on Jar. He seems to be ever present since his return.

BG writes:

They've both had a couple of years off, as well, yet they're still leading the field even with that handicap!

I know!!!!! Two years absence and still the next closest competitor (our old sparring partner RAZD I believe) is a few thousand posts behind either of them.

BG writes:

Jar has the edge at the moment, but Crash is young and lively, and may not yet have reached his full potential. It's a close call.

Place your bets...........

No, it's Nator. And since she is back now too....

Here's the list, sorted by posts.

{AB"}: What's even more amazing perhaps is that Jar joined more than a year after Crash, and two years after Nator.

Apparently this.

for me a "transitional fossil" is a fossil that's part say fish and part frog.

How much fish and how much frog? Along that line of development we have such varying delights as Achoania, Osteolepis, Styloichthys, Eusthenopteron, Panderichthys, Crassigyrinus, Tiktaalik, Ichthyostega, Acanthostega, and Triadobachtratus. Take your pick.

Well the miracle of modern technology reveals the truth in all it's indisputable glory. Nator in 3rd with RAZD a close 4th.

Jar's prolific post rate puts him in pole position as odds on favourite to be the first to 20K posts.

Mine was this. A reasonable question, I think, and the ever genial Phat agreed in his follow up. In two short sentences on a first post on a discussion board, I managed a typo on "innate".

Message 9

On thread: What Would Society Look Like Under Biblical Fundamentalism?

I would only say that I wouldn't change anything any more than is now being done except I confess that I would emphasize Christian religion over the other ones...even though students should be exposed to what the other ones believe.

If your religion is a "true" religion, and the other religions aren't, why should it require an advantage in emphasis over the others? Surely you believe that it has an inate advantage anyway.

No indication of the sleeves-rolled-up-brawls that you would get yourself into further down the line......

Phat was civilised, not me. I wouldn't have known anything about him, so it's quite likely that I was expecting, if not a brawl, at least a brief scuffle.

Good sub-topic. As mine stands now:

Message 207

Was there a worldwide flood?

I don't even care to address the question of where it came from but when the flood waters receded, where did they go?

The only theory that matches the evidence is that the waters came from one person's imagination, and went into the imaginations of hundreds of millions of others, where it remains, drowning out reason, and swamping intelligent thought.

This also explains, in passing, why young earth creationists behave as if they have water on the brain, a condition that can lead to serious mental disabilities, including the constant repetition of the phrase "lots of water did it" when explaining just about every geological phenomenon on earth, not to mention all the fossils.

Message content "hidden". Use "peek" if you want to see it.

Bluegenes given 6 hour suspension. - Adminnemooseus

Note by 2nd edit: suspension reduced to 2 hours.

Note my early interest in theories of the imagination.

*Actually, that's commendable, all things considered.

Re: First suspensions
You were suspended for that?! Cripes.

I guess things have lightened up on the suspension front since then.

*Actually, that's commendable, all things considered.

Whatever could you mean........?

Admittedly, I first typed "Actually, that's commendable, considering what an argumentative sod you are", but I changed it as I'd already called you a pussy in the post, and there are limits.
