About you.....
Rather pathetic really He's old enough to be your dad George Just reeks of agism The problem you SHOULD have with Lauries statement is that decent rigorous science has NEVER been about 'winning' debates George. Its just debating technique George, nothing of any importance. Coz they have a little book full of debating points George. Pin then to the wall on the DNA sequence, their little book of glib responses doesnt cover that one and they are

Rather obvious really, you dont have a shred of evidence that Sampson is 'getting some funds from the insurance companies' He just pointed out that it 'sounds like Rudzinski is just making wild accusations without a lick of evidence' Science doesnt come into that. You are the one who claimed that it 'sounds like Sampson is getting some funds from the insurance companies' without a shred of evidence. Crap. Pity that aint 'the only reason against the scientific validity' of

and Well, no shit. Every Compaq I've seen has been closed-architecture; you can't get into them to upgrade them yourself. There's another type of computer like that, IIRC, and the old Tandys were of limited upgradability because of their proprietariness. I'll never go back to that bullshit. I find homebrewed IBM-compatibles (with, of course, completely open architecture) to be the best all-around. --Wolfie From desert sands to lands frozen Come the Garou Gaia's chosen!

He gave you the evidence, you chose to ignore it. He gave you that, to wit, not bothering with decent randomised double blind trials to separate placebo effects from real ones. Only if you close your eyes to the evidence George. And the say to demonstrate whats a real effect and whats just a placebo effect is to use decent randomised double blind trials George. When they pooh pooh the value of those... And its quite routine to apply decent

Ken is Alanna?
one Shit, if you played RPGs, you would find that experienced gamers can come up with dozens of distinct personalities, each distinct from the other, with lots and lots of details. Often at the drop of a hat. It's called "being imaginative". Wanna see some character backgrounds? As far as it goes, though, I'm surprised no one's accused you yet (that I've seen) of being "Captain Fuck", a former(?) participant who had about 10 different personalities. --Wolfie From desert sands

REALITIES
No shit? How could I possibly have mistaken this for the Aunt Roddie quilting bee discussion group. Well duh...I'll keep in mind that you seem to be humor impaired and insert the appropriate emoticons.

For your info...
Well, heck. Since you put it *that* way... --P. G. Simpson

<deletia> Say, this sounds interesting How's the echo going? Still around? If so, I'll forward this to my sysop and ask him to carry it. --Wolfie From desert sands to lands frozen Come the Garou Gaia's chosen!

Outside of Science.
[non-sequitur OOC-quote ground-shift deleted as irrelevant] IOW you haven't the foggiest notion of what you're talking about. Where's the scientific theory of Creationism. ++GMAIL 1.3++ There isn't any science in Creationism

African Priesthood and MPD/FMS/Satanic Ritual Abuse
60 minutes did a good (though brief) _critial_ examination of Multiple Personaly Disorder, False Memory Syndrome and Satanic Ritual Abuse. Salient points: Nadine Cool (sp?) was being "treated" a Dr. Olson at St. Elizabeth Hospital for MPD for which he eventually manufactured 129 "alternate" personalities for her. $325,000 dollars in health care expenses all tolled after the doctor was through with her. It was pointed out that most of Dr. Olson's victims didn't have that good a health care package
