It depends. Some of the stuff you listed, like acupuncture, has been shown to be useful. The rest is probably just a placebo effect. Also, doctors tend to be pretty busy, and in a pressure to treat as many patients as possible in a short time - even though they might not know as much actual medicine...

Easy and more clear answers are that Evolution is the result of benifical genetic anomalies, in all of the cases I can think of in humans these are pretty bad (Down's Syndrome etc) and serve no advantage. Depends a bit on how you define it. Never seen anybody who happened to have in-born talent in ...

"Survival of the fittest" isn't really a good term when talking about evolution, though - it's pretty misleading, and it wasn't originally even used in any evolutionary text. Like my quote on the first page says, evolution's about reproduction, not survival as such.

my arguments have nothing to do with religion if that's where you're going with this, they have to do with scientific, logical fact.  you can shake a box of legos all you want, the chances of getting a exact reproduction of the empire state building to scale are... well.. impossible.  Evolution say...

I'll quote my Biological Psychology textbook here. Have humans stopped evolving? Because modern medicine kan keep almost anyone alive, and because welfare programs in prosperous countries provide the necessities of life for almost everyone, some people assert that humans are no longer subject to the...

Munchkin's fun, though it gets a bit old once you stop laughing at the cards.

Still an okay way to pass time, though.

Is there actually anything to say that that was Bahamut? I thought it looked a lot like Ultima Weapon. Didn't they say something about summoning the king of summons or some such? And I don't really see why anybody would consider the Turks being alive as being a plot hole, it never seemed like they ...
