Greetings astute traveller, this website now exists for historical reasons.

Much has been learned since 2006. I urge you to keep exploring the evolution of information through other websites.

yep.  I'm just getting back into the groove of working out, and I'm trying a lot of different things.   :) see,  :) do, right? weightlifting worked for me in the past, but i'd rather do something functional this time around.  I'm not sure that your style of eating and biking will work for me, but my body will tell me what i need -  I'm just not sure that my genetics and yours are predisposed to the same routines....

Thanks for the great website, Matt.  Tell me - what were you eating during the period that you trimmed up?  Every man's different, but I still want to know how you broke up the eating plan.  were you using your caveman diet?

Do we need to cry?  Not necessarily.  I don't equate mental/emotional health with crying.  Grieving, sure. I agree that grieving has been eliminated socially - widows used to spend weeks or months wearing black, and just grieving for a husband. 
Do I cry?  very rarely, usually in private, during times of deep contemplation or prayer.  Am I stable?  Yep.
Will my kids (when I have em) ever see me cry?  Only during grief.  otherwise, crying (breaking down) is an indicator of emotional instability, and demonstrates weakness in a leader. 

Philosophy / Re: Science Vs Faith

If science (as a whole) really worked that way, things like evolution or 'gravitons' would have never made it past the drawing board.  human nature gets in the way - if you step out of the realm of popular science, you get blacklisted.  thus, keeping a job becomes more important than truth.
no offense matt, but the whole 'science v faith' thing is a paper lion.  lets not rehash that whole thing over the internet, people, let me just encourage y'all to take that 'critical thinking' article to heart-   its not perfect, but hey, its a pretty good litmus test.

Cave-girl, I get the same result (or lack) talking to Mormons.  or to my agnostic neighbors.  They get these ideas in their heads, and refuse to listen to evidence to the contrary.   What do you do?  Its THAT point where faith comes in - I begin believing that their hearts will soften enough to hear the truth.  Get it? :)

do you recall if you passed through this stretch of canyon?

There's some tunnels down there, probably in the southern wall of this stretch, that I've been looking for :)

The Voting Booth / Re: Fate - is it a myth?

If fate is defined as events taking place that noone can change or affect, then no.  Everything can be affected.  But are there preordained things that WILL happen to you?  Yes.
I'm a Bible-thumper, so I have the opposite take.  As far as your life is concerned, everything is malleable.  You have the free will to make your own choices, for good or evil.   But God is active, and he's placed events in your life (or he will use such events) to try and wake you up to the reality of Jesus. (I don't want any of you to perish, and he doesn't either) But is your life controlled or mapped out?  Nah.

why are religions created?  I have a much more detailed opinion, but here's a simplistic version:
1. People sense that something is wrong with them
2. They sense that something outside themselves is needed

hey, i'm the first to download the article!
good bit there on critical thinking. 
As a brand new visitor to the site, its important that I create a good first impression.  for some of you, too bad; I believe creationism has more merit than evo.  :) 
Sure, there are things I can't answer.  yet.  but analyzing new discoveries is part of the fun.
