To paraphrase my OP on my first thread. "Just wanted to get it out there that I respect this man and follow him"

Second page, same thread. "I wanted to avoid confusion because of unexplained beliefs."

It's disingenuous to say that I have attempted to convert anyone.

So what exactly are you trying to do?

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

So, if I want to be a good Buddhist all I have to do is be right about everything? Good to know.

Exactly what you're trying to do. Find an online community where I can be with other atheists. Now, it's all about Buddhism, but that's ok too. Smile

How about molecular clocks? Turns out cytochrome c has a very important role in it. For example vertebrates the difference is around 13%-14% is different.
