    yeah, college is a great time to do that.

    "finding yourself" - i think its more of an x generation thing, than a y or z generation. but I remember at Berkeley when I went there in mid to late 90's, the college campus had banners up that said "Question Everything". I can't really see that happening on most college campuses today for some reason.

    Well, Gen Y or Z didn't have the experience of boomer parents.

    Maybe Gen X finally found themselves and transmitted that element to their kids.

    The sequencing of the genome has made natural selection 100% sure.

    The evolution of the species is now 100% sure. Evolution is a fact.

    But so many today, particularly in the USA, believe in creationism in the face of the facts.

    Just as so many here believe in MBTI.

    Off topic as always Victor.

    Please explain yourself, or did you think what you said was persuasive just because you stated it?

    The reality is that you cannot prove a negative, but you can prove a positive.

    For instance, I can't prove there is no teapot orbiting the Sun between Mars and Venus. And I can't prove that Poseidon doesn't exist.

    However using the genome, I can prove that natural selection is the origin of the species.

    What about black holes? Or dark matter? You can only prove what they *aren't*. Is that the same thing?

    black holes have been proven in the same way that anti-matter has been proven.

    Ya'll should really stop with the science talk. It's rather... embarrassing.
