    Other What's an unpopular opinion you have?

    Except that most humans are never in an actual survival situation, and whether or not you flourish is often dependant on your access to money. Some people have earned that, others have had it given to them by virtue of their parents. Similarly education is made easy for some, but difficult to...

    Other What's an unpopular opinion you have?

    I feel like equality promotes survival of the fittest. If you base the system on inequality like birth-wealth or sexism then it's artificial selection

    Literature The "It's all a dream" and other such cop-outs

    I quite like stories set in dreams that establish the dream at the start. It eliminates the corny twist and you can work in elements from the outside that someone's hearing in an unconscious state. It's a good setting to break reality. That said, it should only happen when you're intending to...

    Other What do you think heaven is like? (Serious answers only)

    I think that Heaven wouldn't be tangible in the way we might expect. But if I was going to guess at what it might be like, I like the idea that logic would operate like a dream or a hallucination. Like when you are dreaming and things happen and your response is 'Yeah, of course, that makes...

    Food What Do You Usually Have For Breakfast?

    Left over habit from uni. Monday night I cook enough curry to kill a man. Every morning I make rice and I eat curry for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Friday I eat out.

    Now your just speculating mate. I see no evidence or logic that that is the case.

    Fair, I don't know where I got those thousands from. Maybe that's what I get for doing this on my phone. Middle point: Rodents didn't lose their resistance to Bacteria by virtue of becoming rodents

    I couldn't find the number 20 but that doesn't matter? Also, were several of those parts stators because optimisation by adding or removing existing parts is crazy easy in evolution. Also, here's a simple motor. rotational motion is easy. Still cool example, I'll have to look it up more. My...

    @Sano Sauro 's posts are in blue Now it's Sano's turn. To refer to himself in third person. If we zoomed in, one might think tiny mutations over time. Sure, it's hard to think, but it's easy to believe. Take the motor on a bacteria. We base our motor designs off of it. It's still more...

    That more more about the nature of people than you. Literally everyone does it. I do it. I'm just saying, I doubt anyones opinions will change. I'm not trying to change your opinion. I'm just trying to teach you want evolution is. Not that its true. (Although, I do think its the best explanation)

    I think you're giving too much personification to a bacteria. They don't have instincts so much as reflexes. Before you start trying to pick more holes in evolution, please read and reread by posts. You need to understand evolution before you can dispute it. Otherwise you're just arguing about...

    Gotta be quick here (Next reply will probably come in about 4hrs): You don't need a whole nervous system. You just need to tie it to locomotion so you can move away. That just takes on little electrical or chemical impulse. This is a single cell organism. Think simple. The point of that example...

    Not related, but I do wonder if the Conservative movement ever reflects on the fact that they have eventually lost every major battle on a social issue.

    To be fair, none of that has anything to do with God either. Beauty in nature isn't evidence of God. On a personal note, its part of why I don't need God. The universe is beautiful enough with me needing to add extra's. Yeah, thats cool, we've all got life in the meantime. But on that set and...

    Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure its an established thing that you can't repopulate from 2 of a species. You can't repopulate from 10 of a species. You need a deceptively large number, but I also have no idea what that number is. But really I think the whole Noa's arc debate became a moot point when...
