Re: UCD evidence
Dredge never reached the Pope level. He was the property of the priests and the Bishops until he reached 14 when he was replaced by a younger altar boy. He still gets to eat the dead jesus meat, though.

Stop Tzar Vladimir the Condemned!

Re: To Know: Two Different Definitions
well if that's true, I fit the definition of a troll. But of course, I do not see myself that way. At worst, I am guilty of starting new posts and, as you say, "running away" from answering old ones. I get that from my years arguing with jar.
That old curmudgeon would never let me get an argument off the ground. He would engage, ridicule, and demolish my arguments much the same way that Japanese planes attacking Pearl Harbor strafed all of the US planes before they could get off the ground. In other words, he would reframe the argument before I could get my own plane off of the ground!

Re: UCD evidence
Of course, speaking of trolling, it appears that you are also poking the sleeping Catholic Beast in order to get an emotional reaction out of our Dredge, here.

Humans, Cows, Pigs and UCD
Dredge writes:
Please cite a scientific paper that says the use of cow and pig insulin for humans would not have been possible without the theory of UCD.
Of course, even if it were possible, the real question is this:
Is it useful?
And now that I myself am engaging in these conversations, it is high time that I understood what UCD actually is. |
Google was far from helpful.
  • User-centered design (UCD)
  • UCD, Ultra Constant Discharge (lighting) ; UCD, Urine Collection Device ; UCD, Universal Call Distribution ; UCD, United Companion Dog (UKC obedience title).
    *sighs*
    UCD — University of California, Davis. UCD — Urine Collection Device. UCD — Uniform Call Distributor. UCD — Usual Childhood Diseases.
    Maybe if I just look back at the prior posts I can find the correct answer.
    In the back of my mind, UCD had something to do with common descent, which is a no-brainer. My question to Dredge is how does a scientist proceed without this useful fact?

    To be fair, however, you need to look at all of the definitions given by Mr.Dictionary, Ms. Wiki, and other esteemed drones.
    Im trying to find the post you sent to me that remained unanswered. Something about John Paul II. (J2P2?)

    Lady, what r u talking about?
    It's a pretty straight-forward question/statement. You make stupid creationist claims that have been refuted a thousand times. You scoff at well-established scientific facts. Your posts are just too stupid for anybody to take seriously so you can't be here to try to convince anybody that evolution is wrong or creationism is right.
    You could be a poe (impossible to tell if you're really as stupid as you pretend to be). Or you could just be a common, garden-variety troll, who thinks it's funny to make a fool of himself on the Internet.
    Either way, you're making the honest creationists (if any) look bad.

    You get that from being unable to argue with jar.
    Hint: One way to argue successfully is to know what you're talking about.

    The reason you couldn't get off the ground was because you were trying to fly a brick.

    Re: Humans, Cows, Pigs and UCD
    UCD = the theory of Universal Common Descent
    = the theory that all life on earth descended (evolved) from the same organism.
    According to this theory, humans and potatoes, for example, are "related", since both descended from the same organism, which allegedly existed billions of years ago.
    So next time you see a potato, remember that it's your distant cousin. In other words, welcome to the mad, mad world of Darwinism, where idiotic superstition is accepted as science.
