Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

      GI here is General Information or General Infantry.
      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        In what way? You don't think slaves were generally treated as less than human? as property?

          I was referring to your phrase "little Egyptian dolls". A brief search on Google would have provided you with some informed comments but... you could not be bothered.

            That's what they were, H_A - little dolls/figurines that they cast spells on to make them come to life in the afterlife and be slaves to their owner. Or didn't you know that?
