    Yes that is definitely true, I studied science too and would consider my own beliefs quite spiritual, somewhere between deist and pantheist.

    But creationism? Really?

    I guess that's true too, it just astonishes me that the logical contradictions don't continuously jump out and smack them in the face. (Organic chemists do generally suck at Math though, which is of course the only REAL science.)

    Just to put that in context of this forum:

    Math = the BJJ of science
    Organic Chemistry = the Chun
    Creationism = the Yellow Bamboo

    The no touch KOs are just psychological conditioning are they not? would it be wrong to believe that in very very specific circumstances it can be done?

    Baylor is also a fine university, not sure exactly what your fishing for there.

    Education may not be a perfect analog for intelligence but what other kind of semi-measurable way is there of determining it?
    See juggernoobs post. Specific instances? They believe it works period; no caveats no sometimes.


    Fishing? HAhaha.....
    I am, showing you how your comment does not work because, it can be used for any private university and religion. You said mormons blah blah blah.....I said Baptist blah blah blah.......

    Basically, I am saying your example has no point referring to my comment and that they are both stupid.

    I wasn't aware people thought no touch KOs worked all the time... faith in humanity has decreased

    Well I'd rather be a stupid doctor then a smart guy on a message board.

    I wasn't aware they worked at all, unless you're including tasers and they don't run on chi.

    this thread is too long, have we reached any consensus on whether or not chainmail and a batterang will make law enforcement easier or no?
