Evolution theory promotes racism 😱 157 Morality and Religion 8/23/15 5:29am

What I can do for the moment is start you here: http://tolweb.org/Primates/15963 With a number of references to publications etc. that can get you started. --- That said, I know what you're getting at; and you'd be definitely correct if hominoidea were a sister clade of both platyrrhines and cercopithoids. In that case, we'd have three clades, "New World monkeys, Old World monkeys, and ...

The definition you're providing for monkey is paraphyletic. This is the current cladistic hierarchy, as relevant to humans: O. Primates, S/O. Haplorhini(1), I/O. Simiiformes(2): -A. Platyrrhini (New World monkeys) -B. Catarrhini (Old World monkeys - sometimes called Old World primates in order to avoid using the word monkey) ---i. Cercopithecoidea ---ii. Hominoidea ------a. F. Hylo ...

First off, humans are a type of ape, just as we are a type of monkey, just as we are a type of mammal, just as we are a type of vertebrate. Second, we would be the ancestor of the new species that descended from us; "primitive" is a word better avoided, so as not to conflate primitive (more basal) and primitive (inferior in development.) Third, fitness is situational. Sickle-cell anemia ...

Ok, so looking a few events ahead, and I'm going to mini-rant about the biggest load of crap: Adelbert Steiner is 3* Spellblade. Now, you might be thinking, "Kiri, what's wrong with that?" Oh, nothing, once you ignore the fact that his Swd Mag (Mahouken, AKA Spellblade) explicitly includes the Ga strikes (4* in RK) and Flare Strike (5*.) Meanwhile, Cloud has 4* Spellblade, anchored by... ...

http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/final-fantasy/final-fantasy-record-keeper-ios-android-x-event/t.96102303/ Something like that. But yeah, even with certain setbacks not under my direct control, I'm playing. Sazh even has his baby Chocobo in his sprite. :3nod:

If you think I'm trying to change your mind, then your reading comprehension may be suspect. The only thing I did was to offer a bit of actual historical research into how that date was determined - research that is from early Christian writings, rather than the more popular "u stold mah satanellas." Just because my beliefs differ from yours doesn't make me wrong when you really don't have ...

You missed the point entirely. What Tertullian did was to use the Jewish traditions concerning Nisan to conclude that Jesus was CONCEIVED (not born, conceived) on the same day that he would eventually die. This he calculated, using the lunar Jewish calendar, to be equivalent to 25 March on the Julian calendar - hence 25 Dec for Christmas. No appeal to planetary conjunctions required. As ...

I'll handle the video some other time. However, I'd invite you to give this a read. The SHORT form is that in early Christianity, there was believed to be a parallel between the circumstance and timing of Jesus's death, and that of his conception. As Tertullian identified this with 25 Mar, Western Christianity added 9 months to this to get 25 Dec. Eastern Christianity, working from a Gre ...

"I can respect them for not observing a holiday(s) they believe to be false while still respecting others and not trying to steal a Holiday for themselves." Quote yours, emphasis mine; if you're using the concept of stealing holidays as a contrast to behaviours you respect, then it's reasonable to think that you have some perspective on the concept. Just a curiosity. Also, a certain fel ...

Centuries of religious dominance in an area tends to cause elements of the religion - celebrations certainly among them - to be absorbed into the culture as secular fixtures. Consider how people reflexively say "Bless you" in reaction to a sneeze. Do they actually still believe that your sneeze is blasting apart your anti-demon defences? Or that your soul (or heartbeats) are being shot out ...

Hint: the 3-15 range contains the same number of integers as the 1-13 range. If the first was in '03... run the sequence of ordinals, and be amazed. :3nod: :ninja: Edit: Coincidentally enough, my post is the 13th in the thread.
