Its not common here. Never was, hopefully it will be.
First, researchers are suppose to fight, particularly when their results differ. Education, is suppose to teach you how to fight, in a scientific way. Or in a non, I hate you way.
Results are not to be confused with the people behind them.
In a loose way, that is the problem here. This forum was made for us to discuss our differences, as in, a discussion board. It does not mean that discussion has to change our opinions, right wrong and anywhere inbetween. Its merely to see if there is a common ground to help all of our understanding. Its not about right or wrong. A problem is people being judgmental. That is, attempting to make it about right or wrong. Simply put, results are the right. What we think, well it does not matter. As long as we keep finding new information. Its what matters.
Troy, you can think what ever you want. The problem is, your habit of going back and bringing up what someone said, five years ago. Any thinking person should understand, yesterday is history, past tense, due to change. Research or testing, are tools to create change. Heck just continued breeding of snakes, changes them. So what occurred yesterday, well, its gone. Its history. Its only important if it helps tomorrows. If not, let it go.
Dan, nice report. We need more reports.
Lastly, this is an internet forum, its not a scientific journal. Its about thoughts, ideas, and hopes and dreams. Its not a scientific data base. Its to help our understanding. To talk about animals we are suppose to like, Not fight about whitewalls. Who gives a crap. The hognose are far more then whitewalls. As an example of reality, whitewalls and those types of traits, are indeed due to change. Its the overall design of the animal. To keep changing to meet current selection factors. To argue about a second in time. When these animals existed for thousands of years, is oddly naïve. That design is to ensure they exist for thousands more. To take a statement on a internet forum as important, is naïve and weak. To keep past statements of who said what, IN THE PAST, is not discussion, or education, its mental. its about one persons insecurities. The hope is, we all change our thoughts and opinions and get better at this, day to day. We are not suppose to say something, then stick to it. Its like holding what you TROY, said in the first grade, as important now and it must still be right. What a stinking waste of time and grey matter. By the way, this is burning up what few brain cells I have left, cheers and welcome back fellas, now no fighting, lets all get along. STOP PINCHING ME!!!!!!!
