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.

    They're launching their ark now... "the team have lost control of the ark - it's a dangerous moment" - and it's afloat!

    Uh-oh it's leaking. There's water coming in. Looks like Noah would have needed a diesel generator and an electric pump.

    It does basically work though, and it's a very cool boat.

        They were basing their design on Babylonian clay tablet inscriptions, not on Genesis.

            Well, duh!

            Since Arcs are drawn with a compass, they are of necessity circular.
