  1. Past hour
  2. What Im asking is, how do you evaluate these stories credibility?

    Is cryptozoology a legitimate science?

    Tat's not true. Astrology does not create hypotheses that they test. I am not aware of cryptozoologists doing that either. Hunting for evidence is not science.

    They didn't do science as we know science today. A good example of this is that the Greeks did not do experiments. You probably didn't know that. This is not moving the goal posts. If anyone has moved the goal posts it is you because you have no idea when science started or who did science as you think science is done. Galileo was not thinking outside of the box. He was using a new invention called the telescope which her invented. Those initial observations showed him that the geocentric model was demonstrably wrong. He was well aware of two competing models and he now had the strong evidence needed as I pointed out in an earlier post. If you want to support anything you stated then please show us a scientist that disputed his findings. I certainly am aware of mathematicians that differed with his ideas on infinitesimals. You have the choice to learn something and all you are doing is whining about being helped out. This childish whining about arguing about the sake of arguing and mentioning UFOs and such does nothing to correct your errors. The fact of the matter is that Galileo was NOT deemed a charlatan or idiot by other scientists. His ideas were accepted as correct. He was set upon by non-scientists and religious groups. Here is what you originally posted: You've done nothing to support that claim. What seems to be lacking here is an understanding that scientists are constantly thinking up new ideas and testing. It is the norm to try out new ideas, what you call unproven. That is how science operates, not the mistaken world you think happens.
  5. Screw the location - it has nothing to do with the thrust of it all. My thrust: There is an ample supply of gold in asteroids. and, there are hundreds of thousands of asteroids in our solar system. And as is per usual, you have shown no link that contras my thrust. In fact, as much as you moan about it, you have shown me no link that shows that the figure 9,000 asteroids within MD to earth that I posted in a link is wrong. All you do is move your lips saying "EoT you are so wrong". Really…?? Get your links and prove it all. You know damn right well you can't

    US school rebuilt with bulletproof barriers

    The phrase I believe that is appropriate is "Shooting Fish in a Barrel" I'll take my chances from a distance. Thank you.
  8. I do not outright reject or accept anecdotes I read. In this case I think there is a good chance some paranormal perception occurred. But more importantly than this case is the full body of cases claiming paranormal perception in Near Death states and from the full body of cases I have come to believe such things occur beyond reasonable doubt.

    Defining God/s.

    Who's to say there is any divinity in our exist or our existence is divine.
  10. YAH THINK LADY????? We were the primary prey for big cats the whole course of our evolution. Seriously! This crap only started after the clueless wanted to live in the country.

    President Trump "I am the Chosen One"

    lamo, no that would not be that part. i said i do not trust left leaning site,. and that 1 kid was scared of guns does not really mean much, (i bet she was not utill school and tv told he she has to) lots of kids are terrified of clowns. yes left media lies, so it actually invalidates the article, btw do you have children that go to american school? i do. but it seems like you trying to invalidate their experience as people so what you read into it is totally on you. but you are not that dumb not to understand what i wrote, are you? so are you twisting my words on purpose? YES. that is what it looks like to me, thanks for showing me how, i'll use that in a future

    I would argue that Astrology is not a science because astrologists never seem to do research to see what causes the affects they cite and they don't seem to change if science shows some of their beliefs wrong. But Cryptozoology? People have theories, and those theories may not ever pan out to be true but that never is the criteria for determining whether an endeavor is science or not. It's a science.
  13. You need to know a specific event to evaluate its reliability and your question is too general to give an answer. Read this incredible incident: http://survincity.com/2013/10/mystery-train-number-1702/
  14. Because it quite possibly be could something else? Schmuck........
  15. What causes mass shootings in the USA? I have an idea. Rat Park. In the early 70's there was an experiment in which they put rats in cages with two water sources, one tap water the other water infused with morphine. The rats invariably drank the drugged water until they died from overdose. One researcher didn't agree with the methodology so he set up a variation of the experiment called Rat Park. In rat park the rats were not locked in a cage by themselves with nothing to do but get high or not get high. The environment was set up to be a good environment for them. They had other rats to hang out with, including rats of the opposite sex, toys to play with, good food etc. In a rich, positive, happy environment the rats tended to drink the tap water, just occasionally getting high compared to their lonely bored caged counterparts. Even when they took the heavily addicted caged rats and moved them into Rat Park they shied away from the drugged water. The conclusion is that drugs are not the root cause of addiction, environment is. A negative/unhappy environment causes the negative behavior. Now it's been pointed out that in the past there were plenty of guns in the USA but we didn't have this epidemic of senseless mass shootings and the question is asked what's changed? I believe what's changed is that we are not as happy and it is this pervasive unhappiness that is the root cause of our societal ills including drug addiction, mass shootings, homelessness and whatever other messed up thing you want to add which is currently worse than it has been in the past.

    Your 1600's "line in the sand" may include Galileo, but it appears that you think Archimedes, Hippocrates, Euclid and many other notables, are not really scientists. This tells me I am talking with the wrong person. Moving the goal posts so that you can find fault with my example is total bullcrap. I used as an example of abuse to scientists thinking outside the box, as Galileo. I am not wrong about that and your continued rebuttal of this issue using questionable "facts" tells me this sub thread is a total waste of time. the rest is total flipping, flopping, and generally arguing for the sake of arguing, moving the goal post because the thrust of what I sad cannot be found incorrect, but spam - you sure do. You are "debating" for the sake of causing argument, nothing more. toodles.
  17. Right or wrong has nothing to do with winning or losing.

    President Trump "I am the Chosen One"

    That would be the part where you refused to read an article written by a left-wing American talking about her experiences purely because she was published by a left-wing media outlet. As if the publishing medium in any way invalidates her own personal experience as an American. I believe there are a plurality of valid American experiences. E Pluribus Unum, and all.
  19. I still think it had to do with that defect. We aren't finding whole groups of them. Just the random Asiatic skull here and there. Go a few pages back in Rogues Gallery to the picture of me in front of the logging loader and look at the older goober. Even after the helmet he still has a sort of long cone head. The rest of the clan are all "round skulled". Except for me. I'm "bumpy skulled" from all the dents in my head.

    Time to upgrade them to psychotic I think lol.
  21. Nope. Nothing to win or lose.

    there was never a single doubt in my mind that this was ripped out of context and misrepresented by hysterical left.
  23. yes i expect this law be abused, i do not think they will return your weapons, especially in timely way, i know for a fact if nypd takes yoru gun, you will spend more money for a lawyer to get them back than they worth, and even if you do get them back nypd makes sure they will never fire again, my fathers friend was moving and was dumb enough to let nypd keep his guns for safekeeping, it took him over a year to get them back, and when he did, they were basically destroyed
  24. I will suppose then that you do understand the importance of actual physical evidence of early migrations and interactions in form of DNA from the findings in Hermanov vinograd. I will also suppose you can agree that it's not particularly strange or stupid to show interest in the actual reasons, yet unknown, why different cultures around the world were so determined to keep deforming skulls of their children.
