Yes Peez I know. You are like that Junior High kid I told about who was laughing at the joke he didn't understand.
It is true that I do not understand you, Dave.  Good call.

And now it looks like ICE or the caregivers have been drugging these kids to the eyeballs to quiet them down and keep them sleepy and docile. It just gets worse and worse.
Fuck, gratuitously taking children from their parents is bad, but this is seriously fucked up.  Come on America, what the fuck is wrong with you?

Bluffy is so amusing even he laughs at himself.
Just to be clear, Dave, we are not laughing with you, we are laughing at you.

Dave Hawkins:
One question that comes to mind is ...
If the second migration Out of Africa happened around 100,000 years ago, why don't we find cave paintings in Algeria dated that old?
Why are we finding stuff dated 10000 years old or less?
Hmm?
Could it be ... God forbid ... that there aren't any that old?

entropy:
There are cave paintings in Europe that are dated to be way older than 10,000 years old.   But you hand wave those away because any radiometric dates older than 6000 years are impossible in your fantasy world.

How old would you estimate these Spanish cave paintings to be?

Dave Hawkins:
4000 years

And there's no way anyone with a brain could possibly extrapolate the process we see operating at a beach over millions of years to imagine a continent sized, incredibly flat, super duper thin sandstone layer.

You'd have to have a frontal lobotomy to think that could happen.

Which is exactly why I say you guys have frontal lobotomies.
Try having a discussion without this juvenile resort to ridiculous insulting obvious bluster and bravado.
You know that ~ 100% of geologists (you know scientists who are NOT "Life" scientists, who have spent entire careers studying this stuff) conclude that the processes we see, extended over millions of years DO account for sedimentary rock. You know damn well they are not all brain damaged.

And - one more time -

there is no "continent sized, incredibly flat, super duper thin sandstone layer"

This is a LIE

IIRC, "head rolling" means "going to jail".

So there's Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort.
Yeah.

BEFORE his trial.

What is this? The Soviet Union?

You don't have remand custody in the US?  What is bail for then?
Just add law to the long list of topics about which Dave is thoroughly ignorant.

No.  Carbon dating is wrong before 3000 BC.
Really?  Why?
Because it has to be for Dave's fantasies to be correct.

Summary response after one week.

All physical objects are comprised of atoms. Atoms, individually or in aggregate, are called matter. All matter is visible and revealed to us by light. Some objects are so small as to be invisible to the naked eye, but microscopes can reveal them. Even individual atoms can be seen via light:

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2161094-a-single-atom-is-visible-to-the-naked-eye-in-this-stunning-photo/

Some objects are so distant as to be equally invisible without instrumental assistance, but in theory could be seen using a sufficiently powerful telescope. There may be a finite limit to this, perhaps the Hubble limit.

All motion is visible and revealed to us by light. It requires two or more observations separated by intervals of time. Some motion is so rapid as to be indiscernible, but is also amenable to instrumental detection, as in the case of strobe lighting. Some is so slow as to require extended periods of observation.

Thus matter and motion are the two fundamental observables of Physical Reality. Light is invisible: we cannot see light, only those objects which emit or reflect it. Matter, motion and light - more generally radiation - existing within space and time comprise Physical Reality.

Energy, momentum, power and so forth are invisible. They always have been and will be because they are not observables: not physically real. They are concepts within the minds of Men, useful in describing and explaining the manifest phenomena of the Physical Realm, but not a part of it.

Those who insist that such concepts are 'things' - manifest realities - are incapable of differentiating between physical reality and imagination, and so live in delusions of their own creating. This insistence is modern mysticism, part of the religion of Scientism that Modern Western Science has become.

The greater the delusion, the greater the anger, arrogance, conceit and conviction of the deluded, as plainly evidenced by many replies on this and other forums.
So, no examples then.  It sure looks like you are making stuff up and then railing against your made up stuff.  Even ignoring that...

I suppose that depends on what you mean by a "physical object".

Nope, it is not that simple.

lol!  Um, no.

I see no point in continuing.

I should add:

That certainly would explain your anger, arrogance, conceit, and conviction.

I legit don't think he's stupid. I just think he's never been imparted with the base values necessary to even want to discern what is real, and how things work.
Lol. This is the guy who says Dave is a pedophile just because he joined the other well-wishers at a Masai wedding in cheering for the bride and groom.
Historical revisionism from the guy apparently trying to lie about his motives.

Titus 1:10-11
For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are disrupting whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach--and that for the sake of dishonest gain.

"They must be silenced"?  That does not sound like freedom of religion.

2 Corinthians 6:14-17
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial[a]? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.

Sure you can worship someone else, but then you are going to meet a fate worse than that of the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah.

What We Now Know About The Men Who Led The Impeachment Of Clinton

I have said it before but I will say it again: The US Republican Party did not invent hypocrisy and they do not have a monopoly on it, but they seem to hold it up as an ideal at times.

Well no. Darwinism is a much better example.
If you are referring to the theory of evolution, perhaps you should visit this thread you badgered from[/ur].

Gee, Heinz - Trump has shown no respect to my elected leader, even bragged and laughed about lying to his face. Should I respect Trump too or do I get a pass?

You are a canuk, you get a pass.

But you really seem upset about that; you mention it often enough.

I am. It's symbolic of the disregard and contempt with which Trump and his cronies regard Canada. The US is a monstrous country, with which our economy is inextricably entwined. Their culture, massive as it is, inevitably influences our own culture, usually not to the better. (For example, there are now more than one hundred hate groups in Canada, mostly white supremacists, all directly involved with their US counterparts).

Most Presidents at least pay lip service to respecting our sovereignty. Trump is something else. He's a bully and he lies without even thinking about it. He can't be trusted to keep his word on anything. He seesaws on trade, NATO, TPP, lumber, dairy, god knows what his oil stance is going to be in the future. A much smaller economy like Canada's requires stability, something we will never have with Trump in office.

His appalling environment and wildlife decisions may be disastrous for Canadian lands and wildlife as well.

Of course it was upsetting, why the hell would it not be?

Although I mostly repeat it to try to ding it into Dave's thick skull that his hero Trump is a bully and a liar. H never responds, of course.

Allow me to apologize to you on behalf of our idiot president, for any sleight either perceived or real, against your president.

Canada also benefits greatly from its close proximity to the US. For one thing, you do not need to maintain a very strong military against the possibility of Russia incursion; you are under the US nuclear umbrella. And trade with the US is a major factor of your economy. Sometime you have to accept the good with the bad. Trump won't be around forever, but the US and Canada will, hopefully.
Canada does not have a president, but I appreciate the sentiment.

It should be noted that the US benefits from its proximity to Canada.  For one thing, you do not need to maintain a very strong military presence along your northern border, and the North Warning System provides early warning of Russian incursions and the potential to intercept such incursions in Canadian airspace.  While trade with Canada is a smaller proportion of the US economy than trade with the US is of the Canadian economy, trade with Canada is important to the US economy: Canada is second only to China in trade with the US.  There is always 'good' and 'bad' in international relations, as the father of our current prime minister put it: "Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt."  Of course "even-tempered" is not a term that I would apply to the current US president.

Big buttons.
Dave, it would help if you had the rudiments of knowledge about the ecology of the places you're proposing to apply things into. Because if you push the same button in one biome there's no indication that it will have the same effects in another.

What happened to rabbits when they were introduced into the UK Dave?

What happened to the same rabbits when they were introduced into Australia?

Same "big button" Dave, right? So why does nobody care about the former but the latter is considered a disaster?
It is a constant source of amazement and Fascination to me to watch grown men with Advanced Science degrees literally unable to rub two neurons together enough to realize that moving some goats and sheep from Dadanawa Ranch to Southern Guyana is in an entirely different category than bringing rabbits from overseas to Australia. Does this moron not realize that there already are herbivores of similar size and Habit in the southern Guyanese rainforest already? Like deer for example? Does he not realize that there are plenty of jungle predators to keep them under control if they were to go feral?

WTF?

Does this ^^^ moron not realise that there were already herbivores of similar size and Habit in Australia when rabbits were introduced?

It is a constant source of amazement and small "f" fascination to me to watch a (supposedly) grown man who claims to know more about science than women and men with Advanced Science degrees, figuratively unable to rub two neurons together enough to realize that he should probably do some research on whether or not there were herbivores of similar size and small "h" habit to rabbits in Australia before rabbits were introduced there, and whether or not there were plenty of predators in Australia to keep the rabbits under control if they went feral, before making arrogant and outrageous posts about others.  Does this moron not realize that he does not know what he is talking about?

WTF?
