Positive Mutations Don’t happen – Really? Oh hello, everyone. Sorry for the delay — I was busy graduating and couldn't break away. Firstly, apologies to the moderator staff for causing a ruckus in which he/she had to step in and take action, although the impressive outrage here over what wasn't anything more than a little snark on my end was amusing — particularly, I really enjoyed the multi- paragraph sarcastic response that, sadly, I saw was moderated along with my own comments. I pride myself as wearing the crown of sarcasm pretty much everywhere I go, and to see somebody else operating at the same level was just spectacular. 😉Secondly, before I get back on topic and address some of the comments here, I want to simply state that short of an actual physical kick to the face, I'm essentially impossible to offend. I tend to be rather direct, online and off — it's a type A personality thing. Try not to take it personally. If somebody feels the need to be direct right back at me, please, have at it — in fact, I prefer that to some sort of saccharine, literary foxtrot in which we disingenuously "appreciate" one anothers' perspectives despite the obvious fact that we each think the other is a hopeless moron. Having said that, however, I'll strive for diplomacy so the moderator doesn't have to step back in and/or swing the ban hammer. To address a few things, which I'll italicize: Joe Erwin said: On the whole, however, it is my impression that science is not taught as if it were a religion. When science is filtered through dogmatic and authoritarian minds, it can take on an "aura" of dogmatism. And there is no doubt that concepts in science that are rejected absolutely by religionists on the basis of religious authority rather than consideration of evidence are not received well by those with an authoritarian religious perspective. Much effort is put forth by the religious to portray science as something it is not–just another faith system.
Those efforts are very misleading and are not valid. It would be difficult to be much further from the truth.

I’m continually asked why I don’t use Chalk Paint, so I thought I’d just put all the info in a post. That way, when I’m asked, I can just give people this link.

Unless you need a workhorse to plow through the Greek and Hebrew, esword is a great option. You sure can’t beat the price (free). However, it can be a little bit. Sadly, most contemporary Biblical scholars deny the historicity of God’s miraculous deliverance of Israel from Egypt as documented in the Old Testament (Ex 2–12.
Science provides methods of gaining, evaluating, and refining knowledge. It is the enemy of ignorance. This is not only exactly correct, but I'm not sure I've ever seen it put so succinctly and eloquently. Nothing spins me up faster than seeing people try to equate science with religion, faith and superstition. They are not two sides of the same coin, and all the obfuscation, bad logic and/or weak thinking in the world won't make it so no matter how badly one wishes it were true. If you're one of those here who tries to argue that science is at all equitable to a religious belief system, you'd do very well to A) re- read Joe's comment 6 or 7 times, out loud, if it helps you, B) read just about anything other than the Bible for a change, and — I say this with all the respect in the world — C) find the time to take a course in logic and/or critical thinking. I'm not saying that to hurt anybody's feelings — I'm suggesting that in an effort to help you learn. What I was trying to state earlier, in my very undiplomatic fashion, is that some people are not only lacking some knowledge that's critical to meaningful discourse on the topic at hand, but worse, some of you, to loosely paraphrase the not- so- illustrious Donald Rumsfeld, don't even know what you don't know. Bob Pickle said: Secondly, you stated to Darrel: "Evolution is based on such compelling evidence that I believe only the uninformed or biased observer can deny that there has been such a process." I would like to give you this challenge: Creation science is based on such compelling evidence that I believe only the uninformed or biased observer can deny that God created the world in the way that He said He did, and at the time He said He created it.
This is one of those moments in which I'd love nothing more than to distract the moderator somehow — "hey mod, somebody is going crazy in the comments on the blog from last week, better check it out" — and then go out in a text- based blaze of glory here. Just being candid. 😉Bob, as others have stated, evolutionary theory — and the word "theory" in this case means something very different than it means in casual conversation — has an overwhelming body of evidence in support of it. If that weren't the case, it'd be called the "evolutionary hypothesis" instead. Creation science on the other hand — and make no mistake, the very term is offensive on its face — has precisely zero supporting evidence. I'm going to say that again to make sure it's very clear: there is exactly zero (0) evidence supporting creation, including "intelligent design." Those who suggest otherwise — as you seem to be doing here — may not properly understand what we mean by the word "evidence." Let me list a few examples of what evidence is not, which seem to be used pervasively around here: 1) We perceive the world to be so beautiful and amazing that it must have been created.
I have been fascinated by the observation made here on AT that positive mutations don't happen. Well, I have just had an amazing event happen in my pomegranate. Up until I had my epiphany seven years ago, about unavailable relationships and in particular my own unavailability, I was convinced that I had a special skill that. · Watch the latest Featured Videos on CBSNews.com.

Why I Don’t Use Chalk Paint. I’m continually asked why I don’t use Chalk Paint, so I thought I’d just put all the info in a post. That way, when I’m asked, I can just give people this link. 🙂First, let me clarify that Chalk Paint is not the same thing as chalkboard paint. (Although Chalk Paint canbe used for making chalk boards, so the distinction gets a little fuzzy.) Chalk Paint is a type of paint (actually, it’s a trademarked brand of paint by Annie Sloan, but other companies have similar paints also) that can be used on furniture and other items to create a chalky appearance. It’s used for creating an aged appearance, and can be distressed easily. It’s often used to create a Shabby Chic look. Chalkboard paint, on the other hand, is used for making chalkboards.

Now let me be very clear here. I know that there are a lot of people who will read this post who are diehard fans of Chalk Paint. So please understand that I’m in no way trying to change your mind about a product you love. I’m not trying to convince you to stop using it. And I’m not trying to convince others that they shouldn’t try it. I’m just explaining why I personally have chosen not to use it. It’s a question I get asked over and over and over, so I wanted to answer it. So here are my reasons: 1. The Price. Chalk Paint costs around $4.
Add to that the price of the wax (almost $3. Ultimate Waxing Brush (another $3. But it lasts so long!” people say. That may be true, but so does my latex paint, and it’s a heck of a lot cheaper. With one quart of latex paint, I painted three coats of paint on my credenza……and two coats of paint on my console table……and I still have about 1/3 of the can left. That can of paint only cost me $1.
Un libro (del latín liber, libri) es una obra impresa, manuscrita o pintada en una serie de hojas de papel, pergamino, vitela u otro material, unidas por un lado (es.
I didn’t have to wax it when I was finished. I also didn’t have to use any special brush. One $1. Purdy brush, if taken care of, will last for years and years and years. The finish. I don’t really know how to put this delicately, so I’ll just say it. I don’t like the finish you get with Chalk Paint. I had seen pieces painted with Chalk Paint online for probably a full year before I ever saw any of them in person. Online, they looked amazing. So when I finally did see some of these pieces in person, I couldn’t believe that this was the paint that people were raving about. Now granted, it could have just been the specific technique of the person who painted that specific furniture, but let’s just say that she took the whole “no prep needed” and “just start painting” thing to heart. Now I’ll say that it could just be a matter of personal taste as well.
One quality that people are always praising about Chalk Paint is, “It’s so easy to distress!” Well, I’m personally completely over the whole distressed “Shabby Chic” look. (Sometimes I wonder what Rachel Ashwell thinks of some of the things being called Shabby Chic these days.)A little tinybit of distressing is fine for me (and I do mean tiny…as in, just on the very raised parts where natural wear would occur, and even then, just a very small amount of distressing), and this is a look I can very easily achieve with latex paint. But even with that, I don’t want every piece of furniture in my house being distressed. But this look that some people try to achieve, where it looks like the new, freshly painted piece of furniture has then been chained to the back of a pickup and dragged over gravel and cement to give it “character” just baffles me. Because I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, I won’t show an example from a blogger. But I did find this (probably mass- produced) piece on Overstock to illustrate the trend that makes me say, “What the…?”There is simply nothing beautiful about that to me. Now again, please understand that if you find that to be beautiful, that’s fantastic! We all have our own personal taste. This is not my taste at all. So if this is your taste, I’m in now way trying to make fun of you, or say that you shouldn’t like it. But if I’m going to go to the trouble of sanding a piece of furniture and painting it, I want the finish to be as close to pristine as possible. And I get that by sanding, priming, sanding, and the painting with latex or oil- based paint with paint conditioner added. And speaking of sanding…3. The “No Prep Needed” claim.
This is probably the biggest reason I’ve actually grown to dislike Chalk Paint. Any time I paint a piece of furniture and show it on my blog and/or Facebook page, I get a whole slew of people asking, “Why didn’t you use Chalk Paint?! You don’t have to sand or prime!”Quite honestly, the “no sanding” thing doesn’t interest me in the least. If I’m going to take an old, worn piece of furniture and paint it to put in my house, it will, without a doubt, be sanded first!
Why you shouldn't wait for him to make a decision about you. The one I now call “The Player”, the most recent one, blew very hot and cold with me too from the start, noththatintome. Just like you, I found his mixed messages made me feel uncomfortable and reluctant to readily commit so deeply, as I had with the others. It helped that the last one I’d been involved with had been and outright, raging, threatening (either) Malignant Narcissist or downright Psychopath – and there was the first time ever in my life I told myself, “No more!
If this is what I get, I’d rather be alone!”. And so I intended to be… til along came The Player. Now I can see his pattern and hear his pat as clear as day – especially as he plays it out on others right in front of me, lol. But the mental decision I’d made after the previous horror experience seems to have stood me in good stead. I’m not a great believer in “dreams”, etc., although I fully accept that for some they can be very useful and informative. Mine, though are normally weird and jumbled snippets about nothing much. However, while The Player was drawing me in, I had a dream about swimming in a pool of liquid gold and being called to put my head under, to get fully into it and totally submerge.
As lovely as it was in the pool of gold, I completely resisted the urge to put my head under; and as the calls to submerge became more insistent and promised me “no harm would come to me and I’d still be able to breathe”, I decided I would never put my head into it… and I got our completely rather than be tempted to. A couple of days later, I’d become so fed up of waiting to hear from him that I sent him an email saying, “If this is to go anywhere I would have to have more contact more often – not just one or two lines of text a day – and I’d want to know more about the real you too”. He snapped an email back, “There is no more time; I’m giving you all the effort I can spare right now; and, although it might have been different a while ago and might well be in the future, right now you are no priority of any kind at all”. I was just about to write back… and then I thought, “Why? What for?”, and I let it go. Hermione Costumes For Adults on this page. That was almost 3 months ago and I decided to follow up on why I draw this kind of relationship into my life and see where and how I am responsible.
Which led me here! Much better and more productive than sitting around waiting for him to decide on what happens next, how and when. When I think back on it, it started with his claim that he’s in “an empty relationship with a woman who is a great friend, so he doesn’t want to hurt her; but who hasn’t slept with him for 1. I came along and reopened blah blah blah”… you know the b/s that’s involved.
Well, he’s since had a heart attack and surgery to keep him going, and the “gal pal” he lives with has had to do all the nursing and nurturing instead of me. I thought he might appreciate her better because of that, but nope! Now he can move, he’s back at the Game again. And this was a man I tried to make myself believe could be The One, lol?
What was I up to I wonder? Luckily, I’ve found this site now so I can really start to figure that out for the first time ever.
Best Regards, Leonine.
