eyes, you began this thread with a partial post quoting me, but you did not include the entire post:

The "evolution" of peppered moth, pocket gopher, or border collie colors holds the same interest for me as learning to tie my shoes: no need; not interested; please move on.

eyes, the man who asks a question but won't listen to the answer has only himself to blame for his lack of understanding.


The gentleman scientist wonders, how we have carnivorous sponges, crabs, bedbugs, turtles, toads, owls, giraffes and human beings all arising from a single cell 'kick-start' with no outside force or design plan ?

your question was not genuine. you actually have no interest in an answer.

given that, you don't need me, so i'll leave you to your wondering.

no hard feelings.

your incomplete quotation was misleading at best, and dishonest at worst. because you did not include the post to which i was responding, you have manufactured an inaccurate conversation in which your disinterest in the answers to your questions is concealed:

Incomplete quotation ?
Manufactured conversation ?
Misleading - dishonest at worst ?
Disinterested in answers to questions ?

Oh, let's have a 'pity party'; invitation's in the mail - pity party defined:
"An instance of indulging in self-pity or eliciting pity from other people" - Google.
It's your pity party - cry if you want to - "You would cry too if it happened to you" - Lesley Gore.

A teacher stuck in the soup, and refusing to move on to the main entrée, is quite the picture of disinterest.
But no hard feelings, bud, it's your party.

Any excuse to join a party is fine by me, do I get a slice of chocolate or carrot cake? If so I'm in! :-D

Kidding! Just trying to ease the tension here! ;-)

Hoping you guys can work this out.

Crumb cake.   Well, maybe three handkerchiefs was not enough.  I hope Kevin makes it soon.
