*Originally posted by Cainxinth 50 to 100 years from scientific research will have advanced so far that humankind will have more control over its destiny than is currently conceivable.* That's what they were saying 50 to 100 years ago. So where is this control, or will it always be 50 to 100 years in the future? *I live my life to help advance and accelerate this singular event in human history and hope that I may be astoundingly fortunate enough to experience it.* You will experience it, but whether you will consider yourself fortunate at that time remains to be seen. *but I respect you and won’t force my beliefs on you.* Why, thank you. Feel free to share them anyway, though. *Tony, do you have any background in biology? Do you realize what you’ve said makes no sense?* Of course, it doesn't. You would have to understand simple division, which is arithmetic rather than biology. *Here’s a good place to start* I realize that it may be a stretch for an educated person such as yourself to stoop to think, but how about figuring out some of the ramifications of an evolutionary rate of one new base pair per year? PS I admire your attempt to sidetrack me with endless searching and studying on the internet and all, but how about just performing the division yourself? *Understandably, Taken, Elbaz, and Tony may have further issues to settle with me in this thread before they will be prepared to discuss my arguments against the existence of god* Well, let's hear them, even before settling issues. I assume that you will be giving us the same new arguments that everyone else has?
