Quote from SenoriAnd Barack Obama is "white" in Brazil. "Race" isn't a scientific concept; it has less to do with skin tone or ancestry than it does to culture and identification, and it's clear that Zimmerman was plenty comfortable in the culture and identification of a southern white male--and that other whites are plenty comfortable thinking of him as one.
Quote from mystery45 They are disrupting bird migration. They are also killing off birds and bats.
and still under investigation they are causing health problems in people.
umm it is another fusion process along side the new fusion reactor they are trying to build.
Yes it consumes energy just like all forms of electric consume energy in one form or another. it is the ability to harness that energy and making it effiecient.
challenged by who?
all three sources you posted are heavily biased. plants have been closed people have lost their jobs.
more plants will be closed as the cost to meet these regulations are way more expensive than what the companies wish to put out.
Not to mention the ones that they do upgrade the billions of dollars are going to be passed onto the consumer.

To be fair, Honey Boo-Boo could become a doctor or some other high brow good paying profession when she grows up. Just because her mother is making money off her child, doesnt mean the child will be like the mother.
Quote from SenoriThe concept of a God who is both for all people and requires your devotion is uniquely Judeo-Christian.
Quote from fooliganI'm just always surprised by how poor the webdesign is on the websites that purport this sort of thing. It's so freaking consistent.
And when they link you to an article about how Jimmy Carter in league with the Masons invented AIDs in a lab, it does very little for their credibility.
Quote from IWasteMoneyOnCardboard
The assumption that because there has been no proof of spirits that spirits don't exist.
I have no idea where you got number 2. Its more like:
1. I have searched for evidence of spirits 9 billion times.
2. It is possible that the methods I've used are not effective in identifying something that has properties unknown to modern science.
3. Therefore, my theory of spirits isn't able to be disproved, only evidence can be shown that current scientific methods are unable to identify it.
We didn't have proof about dark matter until VERY recently, but it didn't stop theoretical physicists from talking about it, researching it, and altering their methods to identify something that was at one time thought to be unidentifyable.
I see the problem here, you're close minded. Because you don't see how there is potential for discovery here, you're going to assume anything I have to say is as fantastic as unicorns and dragons.
Scientific advancement and technology is often viewed by unadvanced people as magic. If you were to grab someone from 100 years ago and drop him into our point in time, they would most likely view us as sorcerors using magic.
You are the church, and you are trying to convince Galileo that his idea for a telescope is dumb because it has been scientifically proven that the Earth is the center of the universe.
Quote from _Wait a minute, weren't the same MRAs in this thread the ones upset about the congresswoman's "No means no" comment about vaginal ultrasounds because of the connection with that phrase and rape? And these same people are defending "It'll all be over soon"?
Quote from IWasteMoneyOnCardboardWe can make that assumption, as long as we also assume that the ways in which we observe the world are the only ways in which we can observe it.
We both know that is not true, so to say with certainty that something is not so is dishonest. We can say its unlikely, but it is not any more unlikely than anything else spiritual in nature.
After all, the atom was given it's name because it was thought to be indivisible, and then we thought that its divisions were indivisible, soon I have no doubt we'll find out more about the bosons and determine that they aren't indivisible as well.
We only know as much as we can see, and if history is anything to learn from, we are perpetually blind.
Quote from _You do understand the difference between "get better" "you suck" and "Let it happen. It'll be over soon" right?
It's not like "you suck" was misinterpreted as a rape comment. It was the one that has been explicitly associated with rape events in the past.
I'm not saying the outrage is accurate but it certainly has more merit than a lot of people here are giving it credit for. The theme of "stop struggling and it'll be over more quickly" certainly carries more sexual, rape, baggage than "I'm destroying you" or "get better"
Quote from IWasteMoneyOnCardboardQuote from jokulmorderI know you said you would leave, so don't feel obligated to answer, but what then allows you to reconcile this idea with the fact that there is plenty of evidence to suggest that this doesn't happen and that its occurrence is impossible?
There isn't evidence to suggest that it doesn't happen, only evidence to suggest that the ways in which we observe things are unable to prove that it does happen.
They are mostly similar, but they are not the same. You can't know for a fact that the world is round until you've circumnavigated it.
