    That would be the nature of the indoctrination that Frank! is pushing.
    War is peace.
    Freedom is slavery.
    Ignorance is strength.
    Tribalism is family and extended family.
    Trump is doing beautifully.

    Of course Tom ( we are all of a certain age here) - hence my "wake up " call

    At the risk of being misunderstood, I would suggest that it's not Trump that we really have to worry about - but the Last Trump!

    But of course we only have to worry about that if Ayers Rock is really an artefact of The Trials of Noah.

    get it?

    Interesting that goats are probably the oldest domesticated animal. DNA evidence suggests domestication occurred 10,000 years BP.

    Yeah. We definitely grew and changed together with them. Crazy, eh? I find dogs fascinating. I’ve always had wonderful relationships with them. I think I find the same joy in running all my dogs have. I certainly see their souls when I look in their eyes.

    I have never felt more “right” than when running with a dog. Better yet, 3-5 dogs...

    Peace,

    I believe that some of us evolved when we domesticated cattle. Those in the east, Indonesia for example are lactose intolerant, 'cos cows do not do in jungles.

    Yarp. Show nuff.

    That’s the deal. We’re STILL changing. We didn’t do all this work to get HERE.

    Computers are the next thing we are evolving alongside.

    I don’t want to go run with a computer. In fact, no electronic devices are allowed when I run. None. No tunes, no meters, no nothing.

    Well stop trying to reinvent the wheel, it's been done and we know it works.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    That is Lucy’s favorite game. Can’t-Catch-Me-Old-Two-Legs! She runs around the track with the boy on his bike, too. She loves the berms. It’s hilarious fun.

    Frank! knows about Objectivity
    3a : expressing or dealing with facts or conditions as perceived without distortion by personal feelings, prejudices, or interpretations
    and is so arrogant that he believes that no one but Frank! is capable of applying it. Which he patently is not.
    Or is it that Frank! knows that he cannot be objective, therefore no one else can either?

    I guess I should have specified domesticated agricultural animals. Otherwise the forum police pounce on you like a pack of dogs.

    Seems there are no big game hunters here willing to tackle the Elephant in the room (or is it a growing Tiger?)
    I dont see how mere denialism is going to prevail against the latest bombshells
    (1. That "poorly sorted" sediments means a quick and catastrophic process
    And 2. Their vast extent indicates the planetary flood.)

    Let it go, Frank. There are no 'bombshells', there is no elephant, there was no planetary flood, the earth really is 4.5 billion years old, reading the Christian bible as accurate science or history is nonsensical (and even on ethics it's pretty problematic), and this is merely another example of quixotic defense of a cause lost long ago.

    You are too charitable, this is not quixotic, it is a deliberate con by shills and charlatans setting out to con the gullible.

    The only real question here is: Is Frank! gullible, or a shill? He certainly shows no signs of leaving until he has led us to recognize the error of our ways.

    If he were a shill he must surely have realised the futility of his efforts by now, given up on this forum, and moved on to greener pastures.

    He is text book gullible, stubborn, and a bit thick.

    Mind you if reading Creation.crap and Misleading Answers from Genesis did trigger his epiphany as he informed us, Frank has one hell of an investment in his gullibility.

    Bigly Sad.
