One of my earliest memories is breast feeding. I've never asked my mother how old I was before she stopped but I suspect around teething time like all mammal species.

I think both are extrordinary claims and simply that the evidence (at this point at least) favors the latter. I believe in intelligent evolution. I refrain from using "intelligent design" anymore becuase people get the wrong idea and think I'm talking about a diety. Bees and birds exhibit  intelligent design in how they build their nests but there is nothing supernatural about what they do. Likewise I think the evidence points toward somthing a bit beyond natural selection as an explanation for all aspects of biology. Especially when it comes to life's origin.

That said, I don't want to get into a huge discussion about this because it makes some of the mods here angry.

I used to watch UFO files quite a bit and there very well be somthing to some of those cases. I am, however, skeptical of any claim made by anyone about pretty much everything. Wether it's bigfoot and ufo sightings to naturalistic claims of the origin of life. Skepticisim is healthy in my book and extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I have yet to see strong, compelling evidence for any UFO case though.

There's a little, tiny bit of evidence to support my opinion, but nothing 100% concrete.


What evidence if you do not mind me asking?

Wow, this guy has been going at this comic since at least 2008. Fantastic artwork aside, this is the longest, most mind numbingly boring comic I have ever read. The characters are one dimensional and the story is dull. ... But of course I'll keep following along.

Assuming there are many extra terrestrial species in the universe that  have a phisiology similar to humans, are at least as smart as humans and are at a technology level well beyond current human technology, they'd be intested in monitoring a planet like Earth for sure. In fact they'd  probably be interested in studying *any* planet just as we humans are. But considering the age of the universe, the likelyhood that thier civilization is in existence at the same time period as our own seems unlikely. And with the speed of light barrier considered the likelyhood becomes even more remote that we are being monitored. At least from afar.

Faster-than-light particle

The implications are huge!

9  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / SC / UQM Community Minecraft Server on: September 17, 2011, 09:39:19 pm
I'm proud to announce the newly created 1 gig Minecraft server for the SC / UQM community. I am now inviting players to add to the server white list. Just PM me your account name either here or on the SCDB. Please PM me and do not post your account name here for security reasons. The server is setup for SMP (survival multiplayer) gameplay.

The server rules are simple.

-No stealing or griefing other people's stuff.
-If you set off a creeper it is your duty to fill the hole or repair damage to structures.
-No excessive vulgarity or abusing others through the chat.
-Have fun!

The server IP is:
sc15.servercraft.co:1437

More info. about Servercraft can be found here:  http://www.servercraft.co/
Current version 1.8.1

As of now you'll spawn in a random location on the map when starting for the first time or after dying. This will change when CraftBukkit updates in a few days and I can set the main spawn point. The main base is located at X:-56 Y:65 z:432. There is a nearby nether portal and a community mineshaft to help people get started quicker if they so choose.

The opened ended storyline is that the year is 2135 and we are the survivors of the science mission to the Vela system. We have lost contact with Earth and must do our best to survive on an alien planet. We may even find some rare precursor artifacts in the future...

Why do I read youtube comments? They always make me sad.

Which one in particular?
11  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: Muslamic Ray Guns on: April 25, 2011, 09:38:18 pm
Yeah, that's kind of amusing.. What is the EDL? A quick search revealed nothing.

No mention of the infamous Jack the Ripper?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_the_Ripper

Not many murderers are so well remembered after a couple of centuries. Perhaps it's partly due to the "catchy" name and that the murders were never solved.

Yes, excuse me. I meant that they are picking on small parts of those programs. Parts that make up very little of the entire entitlment.

With S.S. they want to put that money on the stock market. S.S. would be fine if the politicians would keep their fingers out of it. Yes that means you democrats and republicans.

The historical Boston Tea Party was about taxtation without representation. We had no say in it. This is what alot of tea party people don't seem to understand is that we do have representation. If you don't like a tax rate then you vote for the politican that will change it. In essence that is what the Teabaggers are doing except they are snaking their right-wing extremes in the back door. They want to privatize S.S., repeal the new health care laws that protect citizens and heads off rising medical costs, overturn our abortion laws, abolish the minimum wage, destroy collective bargaining and unions period, crack down on illegal immigration ..to name a few.

Our federal government almost shut down because of these guys. Why? Because they didn't want to fund the planned parenthood program that they claim spends tax money on abortion. Problem is that it is illegal to pay for abortions with tax money and planned parenthood is an important part of American women's health.

One core tennant of the tea party is small, fiscally responsible government. Who can't agree with that? You'd have to be barking mad to not think that isn't a good idea. Problem is where do we cut? How are we going to tackle our mounting debt? So the conservatives in this country go after the social programs. Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, planned parenthood etc; programs that benifit the very poor in our country and account for a very small percentage of our tax revenue.
