Re: The Feminization of Mankind

Hi Satyr, I have to admit that is an interesting response, and I appreciate some of the ideas there. So you want me to believe you arrived at this conclusion: ‘Each type will exhibit the characteristics essential for carrying out this biological function,’ by yourself, without out first knowing what...

Re: The Feminization of Mankind

Hi Satyr, You have to unpack your arguments so 'we' can understand your reasoning. So far your statements read like a news report describing things. Also, it would be nice if you referenced, since you are making radical claims or borrowing 'definitions.' So your definition here: Definitions: Male/Fe...

Re: A Challenge to both Evolution and Intelligent Design

Hey Metazoan,

I think this topic is getting tired of me, so I end with a quote from Harold Bloom: "I think I've been clear enough for some, and I don't believe that I ever could be clear enough for others."

I will continue to use verbs and nouns to refer to processes and things in the past before those verbs and nouns existed, best get used to it. language is my servant, not my master and I am happy to abuse it a little from time to time. Notice that you are a ‘you’ now, and above you were an ‘I.’ Lan...

Hi Metazoan, I appreciate the clarity of your posts. To begin with I want to address some things you said to Nickolai before moving to ‘our’ dialogue. I'm not sure who the 'we' is referring to, as the set 'we' does not contain me, it is a little puzzling. It is irrelevant how many people think somet...

Hi Metzoan, To jump straight into it: 65 million years ago 'evolution' as a phenomenon would have still worked, it didn't have to wait for us to get here and start defining stuff. It only works through the 'present' discourse - the present cultural constructions, in which one views '65 million years...

To join the fray... Science itself is only an effect caused by the question of life. In this sense, evolution isn't the cause of life nor is intelligent design - they are effects caused by the inquiry - they are selections made to explain how we got here. Just because the term 'life' itself has been...
