    I hate that one too.. especially because I have personal experience that proves that one wrong. I was on a trail ride at the ranch I go to, just me and the ranch owner, Shirley. Towards the end of the ride, we came by a cottonmouth in the pine straw, about 2' long. It just sat and looked at us. Shirley rode her horse close to it and agitated it, and since the snake wasn't cornered, it only turned and made its way in the opposite direction. Like any other animal, they aren't aggressive unless they have a good reason to be, like if they're cornered.

    I also dislike the myth that women don't smell as bad as men when they sweat.. that is a total lie. There are two kinds of sweat glands: the kind that don't smell, which are primarily active during childhood, and the ones that do, which become active around puberty. Women actually have MORE sweat glands that DO produce body odor than men do.

    Also, the myth that the universe was created only a few thousand years ago. I have proof against that: The galaxy Andromeda, the most distant object the unaided human eye can see, is 2 million light years away, meaning that it takes light from Andromeda 2 million years to reach us. If the universe is only a few thousand years old, we wouldn't be able to see the light of Andromeda yet.

    Also the myth that women are always the weaker sex. Have you guys ever seen the training female cops undergo? They HAVE to be just as physically capable as a man and are in no way the weaker sex. So a woman CAN achieve the same physical strength of a man.

    If I had the time, I'd sit here and think of so many myths I can knock down, I'd add three more pages to this thread TONIGHT.

    Ahh the advantages of having no odor glands. They are so numerous I cannot count.

    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
    lol... I never said that :P

    are you sure? I know andromeda is the closest galaxy... it doesn't make sense that it would be the most distant object the unaided human eye can see.
    ... that sounds very familiar... do you go to other forums/places I go to?

    well, physically females are naturally weaker because of hormones and stuff. although like you said they can be even stronger than males.
    and actually I think some sort of champion weightlifter is a woman isn't it?

    Any other object would have to be another galaxy... which could easily be many times as far away. From what I've read (I haven't seen a clear night sky in a long time) it's really fuzzy and dim as it is.

    She mentioned that before in the evolution thread... that might be why you remember it. And like I said there, if a person can believe the universe is that young, believing that the light was created already on its way to earth is a very very tiny mental step to take. Those numbers are obviously inconsequential to them.

    What's your problem?

    Yes, it's the closest galaxy, and that's the only reason we CAN see it, because it's close enough to be bright enough for us to see through the light of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. We can't see farther than that because our vision of the rest of the universe is obscured by the light of our own galaxy. Read any science book. I know this is right.

    No, this is the only board I go to other than the Sonesta Farms Live Foaling Cam forum. You probably remember it from the Evolution thread.

    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...)
    Sorry, I was just asking... so what does that belong to? I am a creationist as you all know, and it isn't under that view, if it isn't evo, what is it? AHHHHHHH I'm so lost.

    I won't say anything except for this: My least favorite myth is Evolution and all that... stuff. Stroking the Fire really is fun! LOL. By the way that is your view on life, and this is my view. We have different views but I won't hold anything against you for it, and I hope you won't hold anything against me for it. I really don't wanna get back into the EVO vs CRE thing so I am gonna leave it at that.

    I don't think there's a Meteorkilledthedinosaursology... it's just a mixture of disciplines like most things.

    If I'm not mistaken that is an estmant(sp) that can not be proven. Even if it were a "fact" it would still be unprovable. We have no way of knowing because we can't send anything to that system to find out. I'm gonna go out on a limb here, the fossil record limb to be exact. It would be the same as using the fossil record. It depends on how you look at it. If you use Darwin's view that he got from another guy(I forgot his name), the earth could easily be a few million or billion years old. But if you look at it from my view, a worldwide flood could easily lay down that many layers of earth quickly. The "simpler" creatures would be caught first, followed by the more "complex" creatures. So both views are able to disprove each other because niether view is provable. Correct me if I'm wrong.
