Wolves stay in the Premiership!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
............. So this is all a dream ?
Right, it's almost exam time again,
Due to rates of inflation and rises in basic living costs I'm now offering 15p (fifteen British pence) to anyone who will sit my Freshwater Biology exam for me.
That's FIFTEEN PENCE
Just think about what you could get with that
Fish sees the smaller fish ..fish eats smaller fish ..nom nom....another of those exams yeah ?
Gripping, I'm sure you'll agree....
Sounds spectacular... BA next year beckons to me 13 hours a week....Tidy

Today I had my best friend over and we made skittles vodka ..going to finish it up tommorrow and try bottle it nicely ..
We then found 2 old toy lightsabers in my attic.... Ever the children at heart we spent the next 3 hours sparring in my sitting room until I smacked my head off the stone mantlepiece ...
If I wasn't such a technophobe I'd have put a link of fat starwars kid up here.
We actually recorded a bit...might upload...it is very fat starwars kid though ...
Well yes and no...
It's a genuine question, I would like to know what peoples thoughts on the matter are, because everyone I have asked this question to tries to deviate and change topic.
It's just dissappointing that the proponents of a theory don't make an effort to know enough about it, always just say "There is too much evidence"
Have you tried to read some of the scientific literature on the topic? There is plenty out there. Obviously asking random people isn't going to get you satisfactory answers.
As for the first point. It is a topic for anthropologists/biologists/geologists (and probably some other fields of science), religions don't attempt to explain the origin of human migration. So this is purely a scientific matter.
As for somewhere to start. I haven't looked much into the subject but it shouldn't be too hard to find some basic articles. Obviously there is wikipedia which sums up the current research to date:
Human ancestors have been migrating out of Africa for almost 2 million years. Many of them didn't survive, our direct ancestors only migrated out of Africa 100000-200000 years ago. Here is a good article on the basics as well: http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/69197/title/Hints_of_earlier_human_exit_from_Africa And: http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/humanmigration.shtml
If you want to read scientific journals on the topic i could probably get some recommendations from people who have studied this area. But most of those are pretty technical/complicated.
In short, there is definitely fossil and DNA evidence to back up the current predicted migration paths. Scientists don't attempt to explain "why" they did it, they just explain when and how they did it. If you want to know "why" some humans left Africa, that is a different topic. There are a million reasons "why" they could have decided to migrate, many smart and stupid reasons. I'm sure there would be some literature on this as well.
I'm no expert on anything scientific though, maybe email your local university for better answers?
Science features lazers and rockets. Science 2, Religion 0.
Unless of colurse we're talking about Scientology. Or Jedi.
Olyy, how did your exam go?
I have my first tomorrow then one Wednesday and Friday. Think I'm ready but can never be sure!
I've had two so far, first one went very well, 2nd was pretty bad - got one tomorrow afternoon which is going to be pretty bad I think, then my last one is next Tuesday which should (hopefully) be alright
I prefer this one
And we've already had a Science/Religion debate. Science won.
Oh, and to complete the rout:
Where's your eternal salvation now??
haha, that is a good one.
Here is one of my favorites:
