Environmentally, the RNC platform is a disaster. This would not only put efforts to combat climate change way back, or undo-able, but industrializing federal lands would affect many species. This is clearly not science based, but business and emotion.

Steve I believe the sentiment you are attempting to express is: GIMME!

Have been watching an interesting series: - The American West. Isn't that what America was all about?

Unfortunately, much of our history all too often has been to use every resource available until completely depleted, regardless of consequences.

McLuhan said: "The Medium Is the Massage."

Does this mean that Hillary can't win the presidency?


I have no idea how all this will turn out. I will just watch it from the side.....

I remember when we bailed out the banks. The CEO's got millions in bonus money, for failing miserably.

I always wonder why in our society, how bad behavior often results in huge financial reward.

Steak and cheese subs, with peppers and onions, with french fries.
Something cold to drink, and I'm good.

Religion is a lie.

Richard Dawkins once said, We are all atheist of most of the Gods man has created. Some of us go one further.

That's a good post Gordon. I am 100% atheist. My belief will be where the evidence takes me.

Or uranium decay into lead, which is accurate to billions of years, rather than 50,000 years of radio carbon dating.

What really astounds me, is that these people wish to remain wrong, regardless of evidence.

Steve

There is a reason that the faithful are called a flock. They do exactly what their masters tell them to do. It makes life simple and they don't have to think.

I guess my problem is that I can't stop thinking.

I choose my problem over theirs a thousand fold.

Another thought. Hawaii and Yellowstone are over hot spots. The plates move, at a constant speed. The geographic evidence can time when each erroptive period existed, along with measuring the tectonic speed. The correlation is undeniable. Core samples, of both ice and rock, triangulation from one spot on earth to another to a distant star, the evidence is beyond overwhelming, but some people must keep their heads buried in the sand.

Except when the story was written into the bible it was by then an old story, the first copy known, at the moment, is on a Babylonian cuneiform tablet made of clay, discovered in an excavation in present day Iraq. It dates to about 1800 BC, and contains references to "all the animals of the steppe" and "two by two". At least 800 years before the Old Testament was first written.

Other versions of the story, older than the bible, appear in other parts of the world.

Exactly! Looking at archeological evidence, there were many localized floods depending on location, but nothing global. if I remember correctly there was a flood somewhere in the time and place where a lake berm collapsed. Still, just a local event.

Several months ago, I posted, that Windows updates kept stalling, then uninstalled themselves, with a total of 8 reboots. Last week, it finally fixed itself, by uninstalling MSI Afterburner. It was an older copy, so there must have been something in it Win 10 didn't like. This week, I will find something more modern to monitor GPU temps, but with my water cooling, I don't have a problem with GPU overheating. My CPU is running at 4.4 GHz, but is only 30°C due to my new chiller.

It is such a relief to no be constantly be prompted to reboot my system, when I knew it was going to uninstall the updates anyway. I finally reinstalled Adobe Reader, as it had kept switching the pdf default application back to Edge. Now, it finally works! This has been a problem since I did a clean install of Win 10 with my latest computer build.
