I prefer not to be that cynical unless my own knowledge directly conflicts, like it did here. (I have a bachelor's in Biology and another in Environmental Science) I looked it up and apparently they trained fish that were already known to walk on land from vernal pool to vernal pool and decided to raise them entirely on land to see how muscle groups changed.

It would be like raising dogs entirely in the water to model how dolphins evolved.

islam was also about religious freedom. and if i recall correctly from that post some butthurt dude made that cleared misunderstandings about islam they also had pretty nice treatment of women originally..
User avatar #43 - bokkos (11/06/2014) [-]
Well, parts of the Qu'ran very well might contain verses hinging on religious freedom, but the contradictory nature of these ancient books sort of nullifies those teachings. It's the role of moderates to bring to light these more pleasant verses, and reform the religion. And yes, Islam treats women slightly better than the Bible does (which largely regards women as property) but it's also incredibly not pro-women either. Bear in mind these texts were written hundreds of years apart, so Islam's slight edge might just be a result of better social philosophy.
Mind, the Hadith calls for female genital mutilation as well, so its a bit of give and take.

The chivalric code for knights in the Middle Ages:

Believe the Church's teachings and observe all the Church's directions.
Defend the Church.
Respect and defend all weaknesses.
Love your country.
Show no mercy to the Infidel. Do not hesitate to make war with them.
Perform all your feudal duties as long as they do not conflict with the laws of God.
Never lie or go back on one's word.
Be generous to everyone.
Always and everywhere be right and good against evil and injustice.

The bible is pretty clear on people who wear mixed cloth should be killed

Normal people just ignore shit like that
User avatar #44 - bokkos (11/06/2014) [-]
Exactly right, but we can't ignore the similarly absurd and amoral verses many Christians (not all, bless the moderates) do believe in. To a thinking person, "Thou shalt not wear fabrics of mixed threads" is equally absurd to "A man shall not lie with another man as he does with a woman; this is an abomination". This is still a very politically charged issue, despite having no right to be considered as a valid position.

Some denominations have different interpretation. For example some Sufis' understanding is pretty different. And some people say it has rule for its time not today. People like Reza Aslan for example. The thing is, there is an explicit verse that says 'don't start hostilities'. But you are right too.

The next time I know I'm gonna have a lot of time on my hands, like going on a flight, I think I'm gonna buy a copy of the Qu'ran just to see what all the fuss is about. Like what does it actually say and book mark said pages.

Wait... probably a bad idea reading it on the plane...

You can get a very good english translation on Amazon for pretty cheap: www.amazon.co.uk/The-Quran-Oxford-Worlds-Classics/dp/0199535957/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1415177670&sr=8-1&keywords=quran+english+translation

i rarely see anyone beyond family and my husband who actually does have an immune disorder. and where i live i bet no one is vaccinated or want to be. (hillbilly types) i never see my neighbors. and the vitamin D works so well that not even my husband gets sick. it helps a lot where i live since human contact is sooooo minimal that i forget sometimes that we have neighbors lol. 5000mg a day and i think ill be up to 10000 in about 2 weeks since getting proper vitamin D levels from the sun is almost impossible. i dont go outside anyway.

jesus... are you that much of a recluse? do you work? do you have friends? also that level of vitamin D is redundant as your body is unable to meatbolise it fully, you're just going to piss it out.

Presently I'm in Microbiology, but my courses are fairly divided between many biological doctrines, and genetics is one of the major ones, probably on par with my micro. I'm presently on my third year of studies for my undergrad, but will be jumping straight into my master's program afterwards.
Generally, a science program looks like this: 4-5 years undergrad, 2-4 years masters (can be up to 6), about 2-3 for a PhD then 2-4 years Post-Doc. It's looking like a goddamn climb, but I'm pretty thrilled to be doing it.
He couldn't have chosen a better time though; we are in the midst of a beautiful renaissance in biological sciences, and genetics is accelerating so quickly it's hard to say even how far we've come since even the 90's as the jump in knowledge is fantastically huge.

i already explained how it could still be logical in spite of archaeological findings. but you seem way too arrogant to explore possibilities with a 'below average intelligence layman'
User avatar #78 - bokkos (10/20/2014) [-]
No, it can't be logical because it doesn't explain the gradual improvement of tools over periods of time which had aliens been involved, we would have seen a fantastic vault , complete absence of meaningful similarity between folk religions which would be present, as even simple people would all have stories regarding such an event , or the development of intelligent ethics which would have been a fairly major oversight in any intelligently influenced system .
Also, I didn't say that; what I said was is that the issue isn't with average intelligence, but that evolution is a tricky subject to approach at first because it doesn't agree with our presupposed notions, despite being true.
I do know one thing now, though; you're not even really reading any of the comments against your position, or you wouldn't have quote-mined me. I do implore you to look into anthropology though, because the answers it'll provide will be infinitely more satisfying than aliens, I swear.

So, let me get this straight.

You are trying to argue that Dogs are not Dogs because you say so?

It doesn't fucking matter what the biology of the situation is. Period. The fact is that word CANIS means DOG and all of the family of CANIDAE is a DOG even if they are not genetically the same.

The argument was never "They are the same thing" the argument was "They are ALL FUCKING DOGS" and they are and always will be until someone CHANGES that classification.

That is how words work. For ever and ever and ever.

You can't say that "Well they are CALLED dogs and they are NAMED dogs and they are CLASSIFIED as dogs, but really they aren't 'DOGS'" because then you are being a PEDANTIC SHITHEAD.

The fucking term 'Domesticated Dog' comes from the fact that they are part of the CANIDAE family.

Otherwise we would call them "Domesticated WOLVES"
User avatar #72 - bokkos (10/20/2014) [-]
... You literally misinterpreted or flat out ignored everything I made mention of on the matter. You're literally arguing semantics, and trying to tell someone who's graduate studies will be in genetics that somehow words are more important than genes.
Now you can call me a shithead, or pedantic, or an idiot, or whatever. That doesn't bother me, because that doesn't impact my 3.5GPA, or the wealth of knowledge I've accrued over a (so far) successful academic career, or what I simply know as facts from critically accessing the experiments that gave rise to them.
You want to make this about personal arguments? Please do; only one of us will actually make a legitimate contribution to science, and it isn't the person getting hung up on what we subjectively name an animal.
