Language is an awesome thing. Many a word can be used to mean many a thing. "Our" does not have a static meaning and it does not imply any sort of morality or righteousness or divinity. Charles must be really looking for things to be offended/affronted by if this is what he's worried over.
Like the man said, Charles: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Or get out of the habit of writing.
Whichever gets you out of the stranger faster.
Really? Just... stop trying to hard to make people into the bad guy.
Never mind the BBC report is a statment of fact, not oppinion. Here Charles does not seem to understand the distinction.
@everybody - My goodness, the frenzy Charles can work you guys up into just by posting. I can't wait for the shitstorm that will follow the day Charles simply posts "Herp a-derp. Herp-derp. Derp herp. Derp?"
Go back to posting bad pix of the homely houses that threaten "our" neighborhoods.
Exactly...if the atmosphere were really there to protect our planet from asteroid impacts, the mammals would never have risen and you wouldn't be reading this.
I'm also amused that people who seem to dislike Mudede in general really drive up the comment count on his posts.
Odd, I distinctly remember receiving an "A" in highschool (actually, a private prep school I was attending thanks to a scholarship for scholastically-superior, econmically disadvantaged youth) in my first science course which stated that it was the magnetosphere which protected us from solar radiation, although that ozone belt is supposed to be of some assistance in the matter.
Hopefully, we won't have to find out whether the atmosphere actually yields any protection to "asteroids" in our lifetime, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Last study I read, the oxygen content in the atmosphere is now falling faster than the carbon dioxide content is rising. Now that's kinda scarey.
Excellent catch, Mr. Mudede.....
BBC constantly refers to Hugo Chavez (and I was taken aback by his idiotic support for Ghadaffi) as a dictator, and other such propaganda.
I RAGED SO HARD MY FLOOR TURNED TO LAVA.
FUCK YOU CHARLES. ewstrdykniolijuytrdeykirtyas09uyg3ioDAy7i 32ec[l,.liaO8932OLKXKjUWOKAE1OCo nuja
I too read it that way on the first go, but no, that's not what he said. He said MACROSCOPIC life would not be possible without oxygen, which is accurate, as far as our observations have taken us.
Not that the post makes any kind of sense even with that. Free oxygen is hardly an "accident" but a byproduct of photosynthetic life. And I wouldn't be so confident that macroscopic life (a largely arbitrary distinction, since it means "life Homo sapiens can see with its eyes) can't exist without oxygen, since we don't actually have other planets with life to compare evolutionary paths with, but then I'm probably asking too much from Charles already eh?
