    ephys88 and other IM evolutionists, please explain the origin of the universe

    Unfortumately, here in the south, i have to argue with the christian medical students when I teach this stuff about evolution. Remember, medical students come from a huge array of backgrounds and skills... the jews, muslims, hindis and buddists never argue with me, it's always the christians...

    ephys88 and other IM evolutionists, please explain the origin of the universe

    i agree with you about the cluster fuck in the middle east. but believe it or not, the muslims in the united states have less of a problem with evolution than traditional christians. For one, many muslims regard Adam, not as the first human on earth but the first to recieve a revelation from...

    My answer is drier but it's because evolution involves using old genes to develop new tricks. ( It's why we all inhabit an imperfect bodies). It's not the number of genes that count , it is how it is expressed or turned on and off. ( Corn has almost 1 1/2 more genes than humans). No matter how...

    Even scientists are capable of cognitive dissonance. However, some christians, like the quakers, don't accept the literal meaning of the bible, which is why , if you ever go to a quaker meeting ( my american dad and grandparents are quakers) many are scientists. Of course, quakers also...

    What gets my goat is creationism and intelligent design aren't scientific theories, yet they are taught as "alternative" scientific theories. You can't design a single, falsifiable, reproducible experiment , and therefore, it is not a scientific theory. The criteria, is that it can be...

    Ok, here is what I ask my medical students: What scientific principle explains and predicts why chimps,like humans lack the 1,3 galactose epitope on surface molecules of their cells, ( important in acute rejection of xenotransplanted tissues), which is why we have to knock out the gene in...

    Supreme Court upholds Obama health care law

    From The Heritage Lectures 218: Assuring Affordable Health Care for All Americans, 1989: “There is an implicit contract between households in society, based on the notion that health insurance is not like other forms of insurance protection. If a young man wrecks his Porsche and does not have...

    Here's an alternative... If you opt out of insurance you then agree to a tattoo that tells EMTs and emergency rooms to ignore you and deny all care to you.

    Supreme Court upholds Obama health care law

    here is a excerpt from my link showing how tort reform makes no dent in cost control. We need it , and I lobby for it, but it is disingenous to say that is the panacea
