    I haven't taken a full week off since 1999. So, maybe that'll help ease the sting!

    Cool! Enjoy. I get to start my new job next week. We bring balance to the universe.

    I know that feeling. Won't change this year either. My week of vacation on Thanksgiving will be spent doing a major bathroom renovation. Hope yours is more relaxing.

    What's wrong with falling off the face of the Earth? I did it and no one noticed!
    Hope you don't think of work once while you're away! Three years is a long time to go without a vacation...

    Incorrect, sir. I noticed, but figured you were busy enjoying life with the wife and kids, and hence didn't consider it worthy of mentioning. Although, you may have missed my admission that maybe some people _do_ treat science like a religion.

    I took a pseudo vacation day today. Took a day off work to get cable modem hooked up. I'm still in shock (but in a good way).

    Because you took the day off or because you hooked up the cable modem?

    I have been enjoying my wife and kids (Toby, you do know where my heart is!), keeping our eBay business under control, opening our store, teaching another homeschool comix class, and finding a sponsor for the "get a computer into a homeschoolers' hands" ministry I started.
    I did quit selling cars, haven't looked back and am working completely from the house.
    The new Vintage Feather website is going up this month (God willing) and what is really been taking up all my available time is that I finally got tired of wanting to work on my own computer graphics (mainly 3D) and simply am (are?) doing it. I am working at mastering the ins and outs of CG. It's very frustrating to still be able to produce with a pencil more realistic work than I can with a computer. But as my nine year old reminded me, "I can't be too hard on myself, because I'm almost forty and my brain is hardening!".
    Oh, and I'm also taking an Evangelical Explosion class (just what it sounds like) and learning to play the drums with some guys at church so we can do some rockin' street ministry. And I made a greenhouse for winter salad greens.
    My prism is doing fine and I use it every day.

    Is it ok that I don't want a Treo and am darn happy with the Prism I bought off Dave S. here at VC?

    As to your remark about admitting science can be like a religion to some, Toby - I'm finding ANYTHING can be a religion to somebody.

    A Chinese paleontologist on being rather rudely abused by American scientists after he reported some findings that refuted the theory of evolution, "In my country one can say anything they want against Evolution, but nothing against the government. In America one can say anything they want against the government, but nothing against Evolution!"

    Bye now!
    Michael

    PS Toby, tell your car to stop looking at me like that!

    Untrue! Untrue! We referenced you in some threads, and I personally have been wondering about ya! Glad to hear you are well and (evidently) not lacking for activities!
    Kelley

    P.S. Good luck with the drums. I'll be very impressed when you report back that you mastered the double bass technique.

    Sure, as long as it's OK that I'm in the process of abandoning my Edge in favor of the Tungsten|T (provided that the remaining 12 days of the 14 day trial period works out).

    True. True.

    Well, the problem with his comment is that one cannot ultimately disprove evolution (this also holds true of God). One can only provide evidence which conflicts with or refutes a certain human notion of it.
    PS Toby, tell your car to stop looking at me like that!
    What if I upped the ante and replaced it with an Evo to stare at you?

    So does that mean the Theory of Evolution is a religion?

    Actually I thought his comment had more to do with the intolerance of the evolutionaries and their inability to accept contrary findings (or people just speaking against evo.) and it's resemblence to the members of his own countries regimes inability to allow fault finding or similar.

    The Theory of Evolutions real problem is that you can't ultimately prove or disprove it. It's a belief system that was started by a man who admitted that he hated God and was looking for a way to refute the Bible, and promoted by secular humanists who wanted to knock the underpinnings out from underneath the Church. It's not even scientific!

    Or as Sir Karl Popper wrote, in his autobiography, Unended Quest,

    " I have come to the conclusion that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory, but a metaphysical research progamme-a possible framework for testable scientific theories."



    Well there you go again K.C., can't seem to keep away from controversy can you?!


    God bless everybody!

    WB bobbymike!

    Did anybody notice me being away too?
    Last 10 days I've been in the top end (northern teritory) Darwin, Katherine, Lithefield NP, Kakadu NP.

    Very back to basic camping trip.. no digital equipment in a 200 mile radius.. and yes I survived that.. even enjoyed it

    To some, it is, but really, there is no one theory. Evolution is an observable phenomenon. It's when people try to tie specifics to it ('we' know that X happened on Y time scale) that it becomes easier to disprove.
    Actually I thought his comment had more to do with the intolerance of the evolutionaries and their inability to accept contrary findings (or people just speaking against evo.) and it's resemblence to the members of his own countries regimes inability to allow fault finding or similar.
    I guess he doesn't realize that evolution theorists are not a monolithic structure of agreement.

    Sounds like church propaganda to me.

    You say that like it's a bad thing, when in fact, it suggests that anyone who thinks there's a Theory of Evolution is not fully understanding what evolution is about.
