    Nope!

    You're the evolutionist, maybe you can explain it. Don't tell me my kid's a mutant, though. I don't think I'll be able to believe that!

    (Maybe that's what's wrong with kids these days - they think their mutants!) :dunno:

    thanks Tootsie. I am not discouraged...just curious -- sometimes feel as though I am writing in a language other than English, though, from some of the responses I get!:rolling:

    Thanks for your post.

    Actually, the word mutate comes from a latin word meaning "to change", so indeed an astronomical number of mutations occur from the time an egg is fertilized until the time a baby is delivered. Is that really so hard to fathom? Let your kid explain it to you. He'll need to get a proper education first. In your family that would make him a mutant.

    Since we're on Latin - did you know the Latin meaning for the word "universe" is "single spoken sentence"?:dunno:

    I don't want to give them any tips here, but if baby (fetus/embryo/whatever) cells are constantly mutating or changing, the pro abortion folks could really use that in their debates. I'm not saying you are pro abortion here, don't read me wrong!

    Is there a difference between mutating and growing? Do trees and dogs mutate as they grow? Or does mutation stop in the womb? Sorry, it is getting hard to fathom!

    And that last part was pretty funny!:lol: The "he's" a she, though. Maybe if my wife would have stood on her head and violently kicked her legs during the precise time of a specific mutation, we would've had a boy.:dunno:

    Wait - I see what you're saying here!

    You're saying the cells are mutating or changing. And here I'm thinking the cells are just dividing and thus, multiplying. Yeah, it's at an astronomical rate! So...when do the cells change?

    Remember we're talking about a single cell here - of course their not all there at conception. Talk about stretch marks!

    Cells do change during cellular differentiation, though it's not due to changes in DNA sequence.

    Congrats. In a thread about religion in schools you brought in:
    • evolution
    • communisim
    • abortion
    You remind me of a guy I used to work with. Everyone else thought he was nonsensical but I knew that he was playing jedi mind tricks on all of us and probably went home every night laughing at us and how we thought he was for real...

    I still think we're being revisited by SB. Or someone with a familial gene of the SB troll...:wacko:

    I was wondering when you were going to work something up! (Getting kind of bored with Lucifersam, you have much more anger and devotion.)

    You're three points have everything to do with "lack of" religion. I can't believe you don't see the connection (I think you're just angry).

    And folks wonder what's "wrong" or "changed" in this nation? To me it's totally clear and has recently been very obvious! It all starts with the youth - aka the next voters. And before you scrunch me up and throw me in that little trash can in your mind, know that I don't vote according to my religion. I vote according to what is most fair and constitutional to my fellow man, not some personal agenda. It ain't a popularity contest, it's a country. And I think we're losing this country to - divisions, bickerings, "group" discrimination and bashing, and "personal" accommodations to small groups of folks that think the world's done them an injustice in life.

    Not to drag you into this SWGB, even though you started it, but I knew exactly where you were going lately from a few responses in some threads - and then came the political party "division" poll - gotta say, I saw that one comin' a mile away! And the rainbows in school thing? YOU ARE BEING UN-AMERICAN! Stop spreading anarchy and realize this - and these are my words - It is just fine in this free country if you are gay, and you have every right to citizenship that we all have, and you are totally accepted. Now accept this and get on with your life! You are wasting your time by looking for ways that people are against you - you're practically punching yourself in the head! Take it from me - stand up for who you are, accept it no matter what anyone thinks, and go out and be that citizen!! And most importantly, from my experience, don't expect everyone, (or anyone sometimes), to be your friend at all times. You are your best friend so be true to yourself!

    I'm dead serious about my stance, and I know the "sowal click" is gonna stand together and huck it up about the new guy. Seriously guys - the thank you thing when one of you takes a stab at someone that you've put in your certain "bracket" - it's pathetic and immature!

    There's a certain "smell in the air" in this town lately that wasn't here before - kind of a dull, sweet, anarchy - and I think I'm finding the pile.;-)

    I know my words are harsh, and I'm not going to apologize about it (it's called taking a stand). This country is going down the crapper, and I'm gonna stop the flow any way I can while, hopefully, some stronger individuals come along and help fix the problem. Thats what America used to be about. Now it's a bunch of whiny kids crying about how little suzie hurt them. (You'll notice I don't get angry (whiny)).

    I kinda jumped around here, oops, but I think you "get the gist"-

    Let me get help you put together your response -

    AAAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHH ; yuck, yuck, yuck - you fill in the rest. (And try to quote the "pathetic" and "immature" part above for extra credit).

    :blink:

    Wow. What in the name of 8lb 6oz baby jesus are you talking about?

    Alright. You've done it (and it doesn't happen often). I find you SO far out there that I've lost any interest to play with you anymore. I might jump in here and there if you write anything resembling an actual point. But generally speaking, you are on the 'ignore list'.

    Good luck on Sowal and in the real world.

    :wave:

    All I'm going to say is that I think many in the "sowal click" [sic] will derive a sense of hope and optimism from some of your gravest concerns about the area.

    This has been fun to watch, but it's a bit too creepy now.

    I'm gonna "click" around for a while and find a "clique" on another thread

    The funniest part is - I've only been "responding" to you and lucifersam. You've been keeping this "game" going all along! You guys set out your traps, but shortly get caught in them yourselves. Hilarious! And I believe your "backing" might be starting to diminish a bit. Secret : I'm not looking for backing - just need to diminish yours! Unless your willing to take away evolution and God (prayer) - then we might have a deal!

    Therefore, I've achieved what I set out to do, thanks in part to you.

    I can't believe you don't realize that!

    Is this the part where I'm supposed to say - I'm rubber and your glue, what you say bounces off me and sticks to you - you folks are so childish. Makes me worry about the future of this country.
