New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

docwatson223 Re:Noah's Ark Story (190 comments)

Darwinism has only conjecture and supposition to back it's theory yet it's treated like an irrefutable fact, meets opposition with vitriol, and excommunicates anyone in the science community who has the audacity to challenge it.

That's religion, brother.

My point was that science is often as bad as any other religion that demands blind obedience and shuns anyone who questions it's primacy.

New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

docwatson223 Re:Noah's Ark Story (190 comments)

Versus the religion of science which is a constant series of hypothesis (many unprovable at the macro scale) and demands complete orthodoxy, obeisance, and strict obedience - or face excommunication, expulsion, and ridicule. Over and over again, science has burned it's own at the stake literally and figuratively for challenging the status quo. For all intents and purposes, science is no better than any other religion.

New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

docwatson223 Genesis 7:11 (190 comments)

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. - KJV

So, the rock breaks up and water flows; a big enough break and it becomes a massive discharge into the atmosphere which then comes back down as one heck of a deluge. Interesting.

Virginia DMV Cracks Down On Uber, Lyft

docwatson223 Sheer Irony (260 comments)

In a state where slugging is a daily occurrence - if not downright necessity - I find it insane that they would rule against what is the next natural evolution of it! Are they going to kill slugging now??

Shrinking Waves May Save Antarctic Sea Ice

docwatson223 Re:A New Religion (298 comments)

What challenge? As many others have pointed out, the *unedited and unbiased* data directly shows that the impact of human CO2 is insignificant in relation to other factors. Embracing dogma and a carefully edited credo is a sign of religion, not science.

I see another High Priest of Climate Religion is calling anathema to their dogma.

Valve's Steam Machines Delayed, Won't Be Coming In 2014

docwatson223 Re:*cough*keyboard!*cough* (134 comments)

Thanks for that clarification since I read 'game controller' and start thinking 'WTF, *another* console??' Still, they shouldn't delay a rollout because of that.

Shrinking Waves May Save Antarctic Sea Ice

docwatson223 A New Religion (298 comments)

What makes me nuts about the climate changers is that they seem to believe that humans have more impact than the sun and other natural events and then have built a de facto religion around it. It's another example of scientific dogma where anyone who dares to challenge them becomes something 'other' and put on worldwide notice that they should be shunned. The other thing that makes me nuts is that they use the word 'denier;' it's offensive since the subtle equation is the Holocaust and, as a result, it discourages critical thinking and intellectual honesty for everyone. That's how cults operate, not how scientists should be pursuing science.

Seriously, how about a USB keyboard and mouse option? It sure would get the thing to market a whole lot faster.

All you need is a hacker to drive these cars into each other and with no manual backup disengagement there's no way to mitigate a tragedy.

Didn't Arthur C. Clarke write about this - like right before the Monolith ignited Jupiter? ;)

To Save the Internet We Need To Own the Means of Distribution

docwatson223 'Just In Time' (338 comments)

Yes, the Internet is 'essential infrastructure' since most food, gas, and supplies are based on the 'Just In Time' inventory model. No Internet and no orders are placed to fit that model and it all grinds to a halt; this is one of the reasons even a minor Carrington Event would kill off a metric crap ton of people after 3 days.

Equally so the Internet since most food, gas, and supplies are based on the 'Just In Time' inventory model. No Internet and no orders are placed to fit that model and it all grinds to a halt.
