If you and other creationists are going to use "science" to prove your theory to be correct you must do it correctly Good luck. I've been trying to convince my fellow Christians (yes, I'm one of those :) ) of this for years. The problem, as I see it, is that some Christians have a specific model of...

The scientific community is still going on faith alone that all of Evolution is true. Ok, here's the thing. It may seem like faith, but it only seems that way. Scientist think evolution is correct because the theory's based on repeatable observations. Evolution might very well be wrong, but it will...

Thanks for the links. You're welcome. It seems to me that the keys stage at which point there is any kind of cognition is around week 16 when the movements are described as "co-ordinated" and "active", and then 2-weeks later the baby can "hear" according to some. From this I would surmise that term...

Not sure what you mean here by "less human". Although the human earlobe is not an area with a lot of pain receptors, it does have them, it also has nerves that transmit information to the brain etc, a 2-week old foetus has none of that at all, therefore if the sense of tough is a sign of being "ali...

I think I found an answer to my own question:

Samsung F2 EcoGreen HD502HI: 500GB 3.5"

Page 3 shows 16dbA at 1m - I'm quite sure that normal living room sounds will drown out the noise, unless I'm right next to the drive.

This is encouraging.

Which HD for an open HTPC case?

I've been using a laptop for my HTPC for a couple years, but I'm starting to put together a dedicated HTPC. The case I'm going to use is very open on the sides and top, so sound will easily escape from the sides and top, but the front panel will not have any vents. So, knowing that, would you recomm...

By "static" I meant just "not changing over time", like stationar magnets or similar. Moving cable to location, where field is weaker, is equal to decreasing field intensity. If magnetix flux changes in closed loop (cable), then this generates EMF (and current). Correct, but the flux would only cha...

What about lifting cables, I did find one possible explanation already :) Pure electromechanical feedback - lifted cables may start resonate in sound waves; if there's some (presumably static, but not necessary) magnetical field present, then that will cause some additional current in cables.
