    Fail, it was a massive flood that came from a dude that talks through bushes that are on fire.
    What`s more believable, a big animal that can`t fit on a boat or us getting hit with a bunch of pebbles bearing the force of a billion atomic bombs! geez!

    "I love science" "Hey look a thread including science! I think I`ll..."

    Option a) Promote Science by pointing out all the cool things about it.
    Option b) Take pot shots at religion, and turn 85% of the world population away from Science in an attempt to sway a couple of people over to my personal bigotries, all the while going "Gosh, I wonder why more people can`t love Science like me" and "Golly gee, I wonder why Science sometimes gets a bad rap".

    Can there be one thread on IAB where you at least try to promote Science as opposed to hijacking it for your E-Penis enlargement strategy?

    I prefer scientific documents as opposed to news reports, since news reports tend to be overly verbose and mixes in bias.

    Anyone know how to get a hold of the scientific documents behind this report?

    For the record, Baalthazaq is the one perpetuating religious debate. Not me. Not f_cking this time.

    This is a legit article from Yahoo! News` science section. Nowhere does this article mention the Bible or religion. Get over the religious hangups, Baalthazaq and anyone else who wants to turn this into a Biblical pissing match.

    Forthe record I see nothing wrong with religious debates, just the use of unrelated crap to goad people into one. If this turns into one of it`s own accord so be it, but at least there isn`t some awful title poking any bears out there. Baltha...go back to your cave.

    Post 1: "But this isn`t what the bible says"
    Post 2: "Fail, it was a massive flood"
    Post 4: My post.
    Post 9 + 13: Fancy`s post claiming I was starting it.

    We start at one where I come from, not four. Clearly this is some sort of cultural misunderstanding. Feel free to post what number system you`re using.

    This brings a whole new dimension to the whole debate thing! Should I be reading posts in a special order like the Davinci code? Am I still too late to "FIRST" post?

    I can`t wait!

    This statement is ambiguous and foolish. It was post 4. It seems to be attacking the site rather than individuals. Go back to your cave troll. We`re done here.

    I hate to agree with baal, but this thread actually had nothing to do with religion until the first two posters threw down the flame bait.

    The "troll-iest, flamey-ist, bait-iest" posts came from sweetrebelnc and LtFurpie.

    Hmmm... what if someone else gets the flameyist, and I get the baitiest?

    This post is clearly baitier than my last, but not as flamey as my first, let alone as trolly as the Lt. down there, who has the added advantage of being earlier.

    I`m starting to get the impression this might not be the ideal system. Any plans for IAB to automatically order the posts accordingly?

    Can we do it based on Sarcasm? I do better with Sarcasm.

    Nope. And it still isn`t. Well, at least not in the "capital K" true ultimate knowledge sort of way. All that really happened today is that this idea moved from "a really good theory" to "the most likely theory." Which is pretty much as high as it goes in science.

    I thought this was a fact like 50 years ago?
    --------------------------------------------------

    Nope..it was a theory but the evidence mounted up to support it.

    There was that much evidence (eventually) found to support it that it was put foward to a panel of experts who had the power to have it turned (on paper at least) from theory into..well strongly endorsed (as close to fact as unwitnessed undocumented historical events allow)! You cant call it fact because we dont own time machines to check it!

    Still...it didnt wipe the dinosaurs out...just the big ones but it let mammals move in to take over the world!
