QuoteWhen psychologists set out to develop positive psychology, they weren't trying to develop a religion--and Religious people don't practice Religion to "feel good." Yet I could not help but notice similarities. I suppose that is not surprising since you had been brought up to think that there is a God and a still existing spirit of a long-dead person to guide you to do the right thin

QuoteHello to both Susan and Ray Thank you both for your questions and thoughts. Yes I would like to stay more focused on the particular research of my new book but in the spirit of the message board let me briefly, “in a word or two” answer. Many thanks for an interesting , comprehensive, and revealing reply. As you probably noted, I accidentally added my questions to the 'Welcome' to you p

very interesting article - the idea that the more sophisticated the measurement system, the greater the sophistication of the society seems to me to be a very logical idea. \I think it is also logical to accept that far more communication between peoples took place far earlier than has been believed at various times. I read a lot of what Petrie said, and about him, … when I was in Australia act

Same advice as you are giving me, what I should tell children. Not today - in two weeks time, providing no extra virus problems.

I have none to offer, and as far as reading anything involving fanciful speculations about anything in the way of the supernatural, I don't even consider reading it - I did enough of that when younger.

Quote Others will equally say the opposite because of their own experiences and also trusting the evidence of a large number of other people. However, those who trust anecdotes and do not distinguish between those that are backed up and which not and which are those in between which are don't knows without a degree of critical thinking are more likely to miss reality.

QuoteCarl, I think Susan is sincere. Her fundamental problem is that she doesn't have any background in science or math since primary school about 70 years ago. She listens to podcasts and participates in a so called csceptic blog. My apologies.

QuoteOf course there is not space here to present what has been covered in seven books with massive evidence. If people do not want to discuss evolution in a serious way there is nothing I can do about it.It soundsas if, from the phrase 'in a serious way', you mean in a way that accepts the wave idea. Is there a point at which this theory agrees with the basis of the Theory of Evolution? I

QuoteYou might want to study this page: . I clicked on it and one of the first sentences says that the prize is for someone who can show ‘how cells purposely mutate’. Well, the money is safe then, isn’t it. Since when do cells ‘purposely’ mutate! They either mutate by chance or they don’t. Unless of course you have objective evidence to show otherwise.QuoteIf random processes could create an orga

Of course I accept that a great many people believe all sorts of stuff, but if they come to a discussion forum, then they should be prepared to accept challenges and defend their position. Otherwise, they will appear to be expecting special privileges for their views and if they want that, this is not the place. I am sure there are vast numbers of web sites which promote unevidenced beliefs and e

QuoteAs you know, Susan, we simply do not know if all mutations are random. And so you know that it makes no logical sense to use descriptors like the ones above. Yet these 'scientists' persist in describing the ENTIRE process of mutation as random, as if it is settled science. Actually, the more I think about this, the more difficult it is to define. Mutations occur, yes, and since absolutely no

Maybe it is more likely that she used this forum as a good place to advertise her blog. If she had really wanted to enter into discussion, she would have stayed to respond.

QuoteNice try, Susan. Nobody here is belittling the research of evolutionists. What I am calling out, is the Big Fat Lie that some of those who do specialize in this area tell the rest of us: that the entire process is random. They say this when, like you, they can't provide one study that supports this. Even thought they don't know WTF they are talking about, . And do you actually exp

QuoteYou should know that I wasn't being entirely sarcastic. Given your tone, over the years, I thought there was a chance that you or the 'skeptics' you know might be able to produce one single study showing that evolution is entirely random. As far as I know, no evolutionary biologist has used the phrases 'entirely random'. If this had in fact been the case, I think it would have been difficult

However, I think the response to your question here is: why give the story any credibilit
