Bacteria Make Major Evolutionary Shift In the Lab

9InchRails Re:What a Crock (1185 comments)

You're amazing! The depth of your close mindedness is profound and unwavering. My world view allows us to co-exist, while yours is very separatist.

I am familiar with the facts on both sides of the argument, and my interpretation of their implications is where we truly differ. Every fact I know of in "support of evolution" supports what I believe - and I promise you - if it were otherwise, I would change what I believe. My agenda in this argument is to be as honest as I can be; if it were otherwise, I wouldn't sleep at night. I just wouldn't ever tolerate the dishonesty you claim that I possess. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is my observation that evolutionists believe what they do in spite of the facts.

In any case, I can discuss and work with people who choose to disagree in good faith. You are incapable of holding a discourse that involves a respectful exchange of ideas. As such, I submit to you that you are far closer to that white supremacist than I am.

Fare well.

What are the Alternatives for Long Term Storage?

9InchRails 9InchRails writes  |  more than 6 years ago

9InchRails writes "Yesterday, we discussed the 1 TB disks that will evidently be coming available. A main theme through the discussion is that optical media is not a good long term storage option, because the media goes bad. What are the alternatives? How can we store data in a retrievable fashion for twenty or fifty years? Do we just constantly migrate old data to newer mediums as they become availible? Suppose we're talking about 10 TB of data — which makes copying very difficult."
