Re: Lying with citations again
Mr Jack please carry on with your exceptionally well argued position addressing Calypsis4's inane side discussion, if you so desire. Your efforts are appreciated. However, I did find something you should be aware of: evidently the Wikipedia paraphrasing is in the book.
Page 108
The typical molecule is made up of an A chain (400 kDa), a Bl and a B2 chain (each approximately 220 kDa) which associate to form a cross-shaped structure. ...
But also, Calypsis4's argument, as given above my/this post, carries nothing of a persuasive nature. Nothing useful whatsoever, except that it is a wonderful example of pareidolia.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pareidolia (pronounced /pærɪˈdoʊliə/) is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse. The word comes from the Greek para- ("beside", "with", or "alongside"—meaning, in this context, something faulty or wrong (as in paraphasia, disordered speech)) and eidolon ("image"; the diminutive of eidos ("image", "form", "shape")). Pareidolia is a type of apophenia.
