i never once said that evolution was a shabby, unproven, or just plain bad theory. just that it could not be a natural science law. so ya i was getting picky and linguistic. i think as of now it is the most viable option, but it does little as to the beginning of life. even most evolutionists have quite a bit of trouble as to how life itself began. bacteria? single celled organisms? how did they form? etc. but it is by far most viable option as to the path of life, and how life has come from a few forms to many. as for neuroscience, that is just way too much fun to argue. by far the two best classes i ever took were philo of the mind and philo of time. but yet again, that is another thread.

"This is how it works
Observation - observe what's occurring
Hypothesis - guess on why what occurred did so
Prediction - If we do X then Y will happen as we observed above
Testing/experimenting - Do X, control for everything and see if Y happens
Repeat and eventually arrive at a theory, repeat many more times and you have a law."

to start with: a. i have ma in philo, so i do believe the place to argue this is in philo, not natural science
b. this whole "lets agree to disagree" thing is easy way out of not defending/debating one's arguments and i do disagree with it :)

alrighty, indirect observation of macroevolution does not and will never make evolution a law. it will be and most likely always will be a theory unless we try to force evolution in a closed experiment. this would be quite difficult to do since evolution according to its own theory takes thousands of years to fully take place.

as for ID, it is not natural science as of now. for the first time ever there are some major scientists trying to make it so, but yet again it could never be law. there is NO WAY we could EVER have direct observation of ID. it is theory and will be.

as for parents deciding what is in public school, not gov't, that becomes a sticky thing. gov't has said there is seperation of church and state. public schools ARE A BRANCH OF GOV'T. if you dont want to use, dont. im not going to get into another debate about vouchers etc.

oh and c. yes, i am a devout Christian who had looked at going into Seminary. so dont try and go after me for touting evolution. im just saying that we have to realize as of now it is not natural science, and therefore cannot be put into public schools. try and make it a theory, which will be difficult due to its own teachings and the resistance of most natural scientists out there, and then you can try and get it in.

as for bush, he is just plain evil and dumb :) sorry i had to put that in. i do not have time to debate, it would take another thread. start it if you would like :)

boxcar children. my niece is reading those right now.

there was also the indian in the cupboard series.

i also loved the newberry award winners. and nancy drew.

indian in the cupboard was awesome! :) voltron was very cool, my wife is a she-ra addict... i hate to admit it but i had a bunch of pound puppies... as for shows i was banned from married with children and most things fox....

unfortunately no... it took my doc back home forever to get back to me and say they didnt have the info. but i get it all done monday and faxed in that day...

anyone else having to get their vaccinations done? man this sucks... my doc doesnt have the records, this really really blows. ah well... i guess i get to be sick with the vaccination  :-[

i know what you mean. i am in a tier 1 school, yet it is just not as good as other schools in tx. i "wont get a job" just cause im not in the higher ranked tier 1 school. people always look down upon other schools because they want to feel good about their school even if they hate it. its bs, but its life. we all have to deal, i have. it took awhile, i was really ticked off for awhile about people dissing my school because it "focuses on black letter law too much". but whatever, im gonna get a job, im gonna love it, and they can all kiss my, well you know...

Just wondering, what school are you referring to? Because Texas only has one tier 1 school....

well, baylor was tier 1, now top of tier 2... ah well... it was true :)
