My co-workers and I were having a discusion about some interesting things. The discussion started off norml and then the tquestion that is starting this topic came up. We could not come to an agreement so I decided to leave it up to the EE Forums to decide since you guys are so smart and can usually figure out anything. So here is the question.

Who invented honey?

My Co-worker seems to think bees did but I say honey was around before bees were.

Feel free to post any other things like this.

Who invented honey? Jehovah created bees, then the bees made honey.


Why are Mule deer and Whitetail antlers different?

In his farewell address (September 19, 1796), President George Washington told the nation: "Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. . . . Virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government."

for the latter: mitochondrial DNA evidence where the making of the mule deer involved some crossing back of thw whitetail deer to the blacktail deer. Gotta thank those science classes laugh.gif

Yes it generates sound waves, no matter if the sound waves travel far enough to be heard by those asking the question.

Isn't the human life cycle backwards.

We should start out life as old folks in nursing homes.
Then we should grow young enough to move out and be in our careers.
then When we grow younger we can go to college and party.
Then We can go to high school.
After that we can go to gradeschool and be young and carefree.
Then we can be babies, loved and cared for. Without a care in the world.

Finally, ouf life ends as we dissappear in our mothers belly. Warm and content

Evolution does not hold that we came from apes, it states that apes and man had a similar ancester. Once upon a time there was a proto creature that was a little bit apey and a little bit man-y and some of its descendants went one way and some another. One thing I can say in the ape's favor though, they are become progressively smarter as the generations continue. Its a slow process but they are developing much more complex reasoning skills, either that or their potential is being brought out by people making their lives more difficult.

(This is not a statement on the validity of evolution or creationism, just what has been published on the subject. The Watch and any of her subsidiaries do not claim responsibility for religious ape views or monkey opinions)


--------------------
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

I like the disclaimer. laugh.gif

John72ss- If you're interested in learning more about that you should read "The Ancestor's Tale" by Richard Dawkins.
