    One of the wonderful things about science is that science is open to new ideas and new facts.

    What do I find fascinating about HGT? That for most of history we didn't believe that this kind of genetic transfer was possible.

    How does it 'destroy Darwin'? Darwin postulated on 'the origin of the species' - that modern species all descend from earlier ancestor species. Darwin of course didn't know about genetics or genes when he came up with his theory.

    What has happened in the last 150 years is that our knowledge about evolution has expanded as our knowledge of biology has expanded. The science- including genetics- still show for example that modern whale species descended from earlier whale species which in turn came from earlier land species. H.G.T. doesn't change any of that- but it does show there are additional ways that genes can transfer- which is fascinating and will need to be incorporated into any genetic research of any species.

    Yes- you are exactly correct- just as chemistry is ultimately being used as proof that God is unnecessary, and just as physics is being used as proof that god is unnecessary.

    LOL- you luddites.

    I agree, especially in that "GOD" should not be in the field of public education.

    We should not be feeding "beliefs" as fact to students.

    If parents wish to do so, they have all the right to do so. But public education should focus on facts, and mathematics, and science. Even if it pisses the religious people off.

    We need to curb future generations from the influence of religious zealots, thinking they are 100% right, and having apocalyptic prophecies for non-believers.

    Because as more and more technology gets more readily available to the masses, the zealots will have more opportunity to do bad things to the normal good people of this earth. It's only going to get worse, and that's only because of false religions.

    Only religious people want to destroy everyone else.

    Atheists want to have peace!

    And a religious person can be my neighbor.

    To each his own.

    You don't do Bible. For that matter, you don't do science.

    Hahahahahahahahahaha. It's the mind of God. He designed it as such. Not Satan's evolution.

    BTW it's molecules and observe. You're welcome.

    >>One of the wonderful things about science is that science is open to new ideas and new facts.<<

    You definitely need a clue. What have I been complaining about? Today's science has eliminated God, the supernatural and the Bible. It wasn't that way in the past.

    So, no they're no open to creation science today.

    HGT is still not possible in multicellular cells. It just goes to show that you're clueless reading NYT for actual science.

    As for the rest, it goes with your NYT level of science. Thank you not.

    Science addresses the natural processes of nature, not the supernatural mythology of the various religions. No, God has not been eliminated by science, science simply does not address the issue of the existence of a Deity. Science deals in explanations of what we see in nature, not faith in things we cannot see.
