Ahhh, that's it, condecendingly dismiss me as not capable of understanding science...That always works in a pinch.  thumbsup.gif

Well, I said "probably". And to be honest, if you did understand then we probably wouldn't have to go through an entire process, right? There are certain things called "theories" and "laws". You stated you wished evolution could be more than a "theory". To be such is to not really understand the fundamental concept behind science because science is constantly reworking itself to better explain its world. People seem to want a complete answer from science, when in fact it doesn't always work that way. Many times, especially in higher physics, one question gets answered and two (or more) come up. And to explain all the details associated with the sciences is something that is not especially suitable for this sort of setting. I will try, but the format makes everything stilted. It defiantly is not a "one post solves all" affair. That is why people in these fields go to school for long periods of time. If people think it's easy to just jump into all this then they should go to school for it... they could make some good money. Of course, I am speaking in general terms, here. I have no background knowledge on you, Knothere, but I am developing one.

I didn't mean for the earlier post to be condescending, so I apologize. And your jab back really did not add anything. Have you taken an anthropology class? It might explain a lot for you. There is emperical evidence. And yes, I am still looking at the "lions and jaguars out of thin air" claim. grin2.gif

One time I met the Devil. I asked, "Do you have any other forms?"  The Devil replied, "Yeah... Martha Stewart." I stood in silence for a moment. Then I nodded and said, "Makes sense."

That is EXACTLY the point. I'm see alot of belief in the answers the theory provides as if they are fact...But I'm not seeing many questions, or better yet questioning of the answers.

I fully understand the principles behind a theory, and basically they are a possible explaination of the facts or, laws if you prefer.

And I hate to tell you, there is not empirical evidence that provides conclusive proof, big difference between evidence and proof...You may very well have the knife, the body of the victim, & even a suspect, now all you have to do is prove they commited the murder...That is the hard part btw.

Would it insult you if I said you need someone to explain a book and what the author really said because you wouldn't understand it otherwise? To apologize only means something if it's sincere, and you're obviously not, so don't bother.

Here is one web site: www.adonline.id.au/plantevol/

Or you can take your pick of web sites from Google search engine: Google search

“Hither to Haides all shall come, hither the highest and the lowest class: evil it is, but it is a path that all must tread; all must assuage the three heads of the barking guard-dog Kerberos and embark on the grisly greybeard’s Charon’s boat that no one misses … But for you, may the ferryman convey to the place whither he gives passage to the shades of the righteous the body no longer tenanted by your soul.”

Im talking about the time during which the plants evolved themselves, when animals werent even on the scene. Couldnt plants have evolved nervous systems together with animals. That would be a great evolutionary advantage.

Because they weren't in need of one!

Plants were perfectly suited for their lifestyle... why waste time evolving a nervous system when they were doing great without one...instead they used that o evolve more effiecent way of capturing sunlight.
