Re: Selective learning
You forgot the Seven Mounds of Bullshit that you keep piling up around here, kofh. The reason the Bible used 7 and 12 and 40 so much is that it's based on traditions that included a whole buttload of numerology - and their flavor of numerology liked those particular numbers. Mayans liked 20 real well.

Have you seen the movie "A Beautiful Mind?"

Re: Re:Mnemonic learning
The reason for numerology is that ancient wise guys thought that 3, 5, 7 12, and such repetitious bible numers had some magic potential that could be used to count out the letters of names and such.

And they were about as correct about that as you seem to be - not so much, in other words.

Bacteria (or Archaea, for that matter) are not the "seeds to the entire Plant Kingdom" any more than they are "seeds" of animals. They are prokaryotes. Plants and animals are a couple of examples of eukaryotes, and appear to be the result of parasitisms/symbioses involving the first two. You're about a half-century behind high-school biology, kofh.

Does that help?

Not significantly.

Re: Science does not refute Genesis
And there are not 7 tectonic plates. There are 15.

Oh, c'mon , Eli!! If you don't count the eight that are inconvenient, there are only seven!

"summary" contains 7 letters
The saddest part of this thread is that each of seven of the posters on it displaced 7 X 10^7 electrons per second from their happy little orbital homes, displacing 7 X 10^7 photons per second, over a period of 70,000 seconds in total on seven different electronic devices spread over nearly seven continents.

Won't somebody think of the photons??!1!?
