World's First Biodegradable Joint Implant Grows New Joints

fedos Re:Why aren't we already using bone made bones? (102 comments)

The claim was that there are countries that "ban or restrict", and the request was for a list of that "banned or restricted". These countries restrict research.

from the fine wikipedia article "India banned in 2004 reproductive cloning, permitted therapeutic cloning."

And did you notice that I didn't include India? If you want to criticize the list that I provided then look only at the countries in my list. I specifically tailored it to not include countries that only restricts or bans cloning. This is why I gave the list to begin with instead of just linking to the Wikipedia site, something that took me less than two minutes to find so I don't know why you couldn't look up the list yourself in the first place.

Seriously, so many people are quick to demand "citation, plz" for easy to find information about well-known facts that it dilutes the calls for evidence of the claims of absolute quacks.

Humans Are Nicer Than We Think

fedos Re:Perhaps.... (372 comments)

Within a short time, non-violent creatures became dominant over intentionally or accidentally violent ones by a ratio of more than 100:1.

Were you able to track the ratio of intentionally violent to accidentally violent ones?

Hunters Shoot Down Drone of Animal Rights Group

fedos Re:If they hadn't brought their drone (1127 comments)

Now without know the exact South Carolina hunting regulations and without knowing how that specific road was classed I can't say if the hunters violated any law by shooting in the direction of the road.

This is Slashdot, so don't let that stop you.

Hunters Shoot Down Drone of Animal Rights Group

fedos Re:If they hadn't brought their drone (1127 comments)

What protects a plane flying over your property from physical threat from you is not that there are living people on board, but airspace rules. Your property does not extend indefinitely into the sky. At a certain altitude it becomes public property. This is why planes are able to fly over your property without an easement, and it's why governments are able to regulate building heights.

As long as this drone was within this space, it was not trespassing. Of course, if it was high enough to be in controlled airspace then it would have legal problems.

Bottom line is regardless of whether or not it's legal for the drone to be where it was, the hunters had no right to shoot it. Let's say that you and I are in some sort of neighbors' over what you're doing on your property (we'll say what you're doing is legal, but it causes a nuisance to me), so I sneak on over with a camera to photograph how bad it is. I've broken the law by trespassing. If you catch me, this does not give you the right to destroy my camera. You call the cops and they give me a citation; destroying my property would give me just as much right to call the cops as you have.

TLDR: The statistics don't agree with my personal beliefs so the research must be wrong.

James Randi's Latest Debunking Operation

fedos Re:"a fraudulent religious organization" (498 comments)

I don't see why it's so popular on Slashdot to hate people who believe in some sort of God.

It's not so much hate as it see you as no different than people who believe it's possible to talk to the dead or find water underground by passing a bent piece of wood over it.

Skeptics have not said the earth is flat. And the people who do (did?) say the earth is flat don't use the shape of maps as evidence.

James Randi's Latest Debunking Operation

fedos Re:Just another Con Man (498 comments)

You have it backwards. The Church is in the position of the psychics. They have not put forward any evidence that Yahweh exists. Not in 2,000 years. So what does that mean we should do with the claims of the existence of Yahweh?

The same guy could also spin a pencil WITH HIS MIND. When I saw the whole thing I thought that this guy has the most pathetic telekinectic powers ever.

"The static from the peanuts, you see, the peanuts are creating static electricity, and that's keeping the pages down." LOL, he also had the most pathetic excuses.
