    If you care to declare that evolutionism hasnít been introduced an alternative to creationism for more than a century, please do so. If not, please be more specific with your comments in the future or I wonít bother to respond.
    I'm pretty sure we're not descended.from chimpanzees, but share a common ancestor, according to the actual theory and not that artists rendering.

    I believe differences in intellect between INDIVIDUALS are far more significant than most people consciously realize.

    I'd bet the farm that if you took a handful of upper 10%ers on an island with a group of lower 30%ers ten times larger, the former would completely dominate the latter.

    I can't think of any other genetic variant that creates such a profound advantage. Nobody is faster or stronger than the slowest or weakest to the degree the most intelligent are equipped to compete with the least intelligent.

    Make no mistake, I come at this issue from the perspective that it is not ok for the strong to prey upon the weak. Any strength, any weakness.

    I don't think intellect confers "superiority". Any more than being able to run faster than everybody else can.

    It does confer a significant competitive advantage. To an "unfair" degree, IMHO.

    We DO need to be watched!

    So it would seem. If Romney can't get the nutter vote because he isn't stuck in the 15th. century, and can't get the fundy vote for being a Mormon, can he get the nomination?

    OMG! We're likely to end up with a choice between Bachmann and a second Obama term.

    Re: Huntsman on evolution, warming: 'Call me crazy'

    I believe that Jesus is the son of God and all that Bible stuff. The fact about it is, it's all FAITH. You can't wholly prove any of it. Archealogists may find what they think is Noah's Ark in Turkey, they think they've found Sodom and Gomorrha, etc. But none of that really matters. The whole point of Christianity is believing WITHOUT proof. That's the hardest part for people who aren't Christian to accept.

    believe it or not.... your wrong....

    for example....

    every breed of domestic dog( that i know of) is ONE species. All the different breeds have different aspects of average intelligence and mood tendency's and some even have instincts other don't at all (ex. herding, pointing).

    Actually, not.

    "The domestic dog was originally classified as Canis familiaris and Canis familiarus domesticus by Carolus Linnaeus in 1758,[19][20] and was reclassified in 1993 as Canis lupus familiaris, a subspecies of the gray wolf Canis lupus, by the Smithsonian Institution and the American Society of Mammalogists."

    Is it a virtue to accept such things on faith, with no proof?
