    oy... I even said that I think one shapes the other. the differences in sex shape culture and culture shapes the differences in sex.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    distruction of the earth- yes, most cultures have them.
    Actaully it wasn't two people, but for you sake I will say that it was supposedly more than two people. As for world destruction by flood or natural disaster it couldve happened it could not have happened. There is no way for sure to know.

    It is evolution that states that a meteor(sp) destroyed the dinosaurs right? I'm just asking, I'm not making a point, I've just always wondered. Did it destroy the world, or just cause whatever it was to kill the dinosaurs off?

    Back to myths: DaRnit.... I had one and then I forgot it!!!!!! Don't ya hate when that happens. As for the myth about women getting lost in there own house. That would be a REALLY big house!!!!

    no.
    it just states that the organisms today have the common ancestors and that that happens through natural selection, blah blah...
    why do people keep wanting it to encompass everything from the big bang and how the solar system/earth formed to the origins of life and meteors striking the earth? (rhetorical question...)

Then with racism, I had chosen to do a paper (still doing it darn it... nothing to do with black history month by the way) and that comes up. then gender differences pop up in my myth thread, another site, and the study about the brain comes up.
    Like a week or two after the evolution thread got closed I picked up an issue of Discover that had an article (the cover story) about how people were testing evolutionary theory using computer simulations, and finding that not only did problems often get solved in fewer iterations than the testers expected, but that complex "structures" frequently emerged that couldn't function as simpler parts (the analogy being eyes and wings and such). In some cases the "lifeforms" would even outsmart the testers when they tried to inhibit their adaptations. Funny thing is the software now has hundreds of creationists combing it for bugs for free.

    I'd say the article is required reading for anyone interested (Feb 2005, Vol. 26, No. 2). I don't meant to steer this thread in that direction or anything (though it seems I accidently did that with gender anyway)... it was just frustrating that the timing was off by only a couple weeks.

    Since this will happen anyway. My least favorite myth is Creationism and basically the Christian Religion mainly because it is basically imposed in the US.

    This is nothing new. Numerous evolution simulations have been written over the last 10 years and many even before then! Heck, I was was writing them 10 years ago...now I feel old.
