Wow, yeah I'm glad I didn't fly in from France just for the cancellation!

So I wonder how the actual Olympics will go then? Maybe on Aug 7 they'll decide to cancel the athletics and water sports events, and only conduct weightlifting and ping pong!

Ah?! After the previous information posted here, I arranged to have Monday off work to go to see the torch at Expo. Then they change the schedule on the very last day! So I find that when I finish work at lunchtime on Monday that the torch is already gone!

I would find it rude to even organize a BBQ and change the arrangements only one day before. What sort of way is this to arrange something as once-in-a-lifetime as the arrival of the Olympic Torch? Why would they change at the last minute like that?

Thanks!

I was thinking Beijing Lu north of the tunnel is a wide place that maybe wouldn't be as crowded. But it says 汽车转场, does that mean it will be in a vehicle? From where to where?

I think creationists also claim some scientific proof for their position (presumably making different interpretations than evolutionists), but also relying upon more than science alone. Existence does not derive or consist of intellect alone, but also of the heart and the soul. Evolutionists usually do not comprehensively address existence in this way. Thus the theories have different purposes, so try and contrast them on a scientific basis alone (even when one cannot fully disprove the other anyway) is only looking at part of the picture. Apples and oranges.

Being tongue-in-cheek I used the emotive term propaganda. If there were ulterior motives of evolutionists, it would be to claim they have through science "disproved" an alternative explanation of origins such as creationism, proponents of which do not usually purport to rely on science alone anyway. However as you agreed, even science has not proven evolutionism. Thus to claim that it has, doesn't that seem something like propaganda?

My comment was intended to be tongue-in-cheek, following on from the discussion on the other thread recently about evolutionism. I was just saying, like Alien indicated above, that this is a theory not beyond doubt as to its validity, and open to revision and reinterpretation. Other forms of science are verified through experimentation and observation, but that does not apply to evolutionism, for which those methods are not available. Despite all of this, pronouncements by evolutionists seem to be treated unquestionedly as fact rather than speculation and interpretation.
