    "Natural selection is laissez-faire economic theory imposed on biology." Hayek did this in reverse, noting that Darwin was strongly influenced by Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, in [Hayek's] "The Fatal Conceit."

    The concepts are remarkably intertwined, along with the notion of spontaneous order that I mentioned earlier in the thread.

    I'm not saying it's "true", but if you understand spontaneous order arising from evolution in biology, it makes understanding the free-market perspective of economics much easier. That is to say, why having a chaotic, hands-off approach is better than trying to force things to a particular end/conclusion.

    you can reject it all you want. I was making a point. I wish my christian friends a merry christmas and i do not preach to them. Your example of supposed christ like behaviour is deplorable.

    or better yet. let me evangelatheize you. Maybe someday, one can hope, you will wake up to the bright beautiful light of reason. I wish and hope for you that you can put away your delusions and awfulness that religion and lies have buried in your heart. Seasons greeting!!! (see that? Hypocrisy much?)

    I was so Aspie, that the school demanded that I was tested for Autism at age 9. If you want, we can discuss how I've learned to overcome many of my issues, and how that might work well for your child.

    Big time.

That you and I disagree on Jesus of Nazareth matters little when compared to those who would deny/dismiss/diminish Yahweh, the creator of all with whom we have covenant. Sorry about the rant, but I guess I'm saying that in the current context, there are clear sides to take.

    Know what you mean.

    I'm sure that we have a lot in common. It's just that, to be honest, I'm not one to take sides. I'm more of the opinion that everyone should learn to be friends with each other.

    Because of that, I often prefer to defend the under-dog. It was atheists in the 80s, and I defended them then. It's been religious people since the 90s, and so I'm on their side, and yours.

    Also, don't worry too much. When the West goes into a Cold (economic) War with China, then everything will swing around again, and it will be just like when the West was against the U.S.S.R. More McCarthy hearings, G-d help us.

    I can do that, but I have to get it into a spread sheet first. Unfortunately, the program that gathers the data won't allow me to quickly export it.

    Thanks. It's been several years since I've done this kind of work so I'm horribly out of practice. I'll plot the data Monday and see what it looks like.

    I noticed that it became more of an Us vs Them type thread pretty quickly. It's disappointing to me because I thought both "sides" had more respect for the other than that, especially on this forum. Like Monte stated, yeah, I tend to believe it's more of a political battle of sorts, rather than an actual effort to prove their stance.

    I thought I was the only one on this forum that believes in God. I am happy to be mistaken.
