Donnie, what about the American Indian tribes that were not of a warring nature?
Unless they were completely isolated (rare), every tribe I've ever read about was warring with another. I think saying the Natives were peaceful until the 'evil' Europeans came is a post-modern fantasy concept. The French and British used the already existing animosity between tribes very often as a stragedy.
At what date do scholars put the land bridge over the Bering Strait? 9000-10000 B.C.?
Some put is as far back as 20,000 yrsAugust 18, 2014 at 12:30 am in reply to: Cost of living inquiry #30203
Perfect. Thank you!!August 15, 2014 at 9:50 pm in reply to: Cost of living inquiry #30201
That's a useful website! Is there any that compares current fuel or food prices and tax rates?August 8, 2014 at 9:25 am in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30190
Yeah, but evolutionists use Darwinian evolution (natural selection) as proof of evolution. I think it kind of disproves that everything happened over the course of millions of years when some major biological changes have been observed to occur in a just a few generations.*Also, population variations could be caused by genetic changes due to availability of food supply or predation. Fish under stress will produce less eggs for example.As for these elephants, this is a strong case for intelligent design. It's funny because many evolutionary biologists would say nature or the environment decided these things. I'd like to see these same biologists state their case on how something inanimate can actually make decisions like that.*I am not a young earther.August 7, 2014 at 8:03 pm in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30187
The moths did, so why not elephants? It's actually the speed of evolution/natural selection that makes me very skeptical of the whole theory. A species can go from endangered to abundant (or vice versa) in 2 or 3 decades. Deer, wolves, and many fish can exhibit changes in population in just one year...with or without man's help or harm.August 7, 2014 at 4:35 pm in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30185
The gene, which exists in Asian elephants at a normal ratio of 2 to 5 per cent, has increased to 5 per cent to 10 per cent in China among males of the species, according to Zhang's research.
Over what period of time?
"It is not the result of natural evolution. Rather, it is a reluctant choice made in the face of a gun."
This is not biology, it's pure, unproven speculation. If anything, I'd lean more towards this IS evolution/natural selection, and possibly moving into the direction of extinction.Why is this not happening to African elephants who suffer far more poaching than Asian elephants? That's a question these researchers should be looking in to.August 7, 2014 at 9:17 am in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30182
Adaptation. But what are they adapting too?Here's maybe another theory, IF this is verifiable and actually happening, perhaps it is because the male population is too large and this is nature's (God's) way of thinning the herd.August 7, 2014 at 12:47 am in reply to: Ongoing workouts #29422
You'll need more than just me if something goes wrong with that 275. 😮I don't max out often at all because it usually leads to some nagging or sometimes worse injury. I'm happy with 225. That's good for a guy my size and age...I out lift most of the 20-something yr olds there, so I'm happy. 8)August 7, 2014 at 12:40 am in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30179August 6, 2014 at 8:56 pm in reply to: Ongoing workouts #29420
I did 275 once or twice. Tried to do 315 once…FAIL!! :-[August 6, 2014 at 8:55 pm in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30177
These elephants have been eating a lot of moths?August 6, 2014 at 4:02 pm in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30175
SHOW ME THE RESEARCH!!August 6, 2014 at 9:04 am in reply to: Elephantesque Trivia #30172
I think only males have tusks.August 6, 2014 at 9:03 am in reply to: Ongoing workouts #29418
without a spot can do 2 or 3 reps at 245 (5'4, 155 lbs)August 5, 2014 at 8:37 pm in reply to: Ongoing workouts #29416
Agree with all of the above (especially the younger you part). I never would have imagined that I'd be benching more at 54 than I was at 40.
