i didn't do a thing. someone must have pointed him to the post. unless he just randomly checks google for mentions of his name and/or his books. cool though.
as far as Barnes and silicone goes. my understanding is that silicone is mentioned as an element that could be the basis for life in place of carbon were it the case that carbon didn't form because the universe didn't have supermassive stars that went supernova (how we get carbon in the first place). but if carbon wouldn't form then neither would oxygen and so he's making the point that while you'd not only need to replace carbon but also need something for life to respire, and that can't be silicone for obvious reasons. but maybe i'm misunderstanding.
Normally I wouldn't do this since it is poor form, but I realize that the way I structured the thread was so unclear that nothing meaningful can come as a result. If two people in a row misunderstand like that, I have to take the blame for poorly expressing myself. I'd rather scrap the thread than let it build into something pointless.
Morgan and i thought it'd be good to have the three of us set up a time when we can log in to Blog Talk Radio, the site that'll host the podcast, and pick around on the back panel there so we can get you familiarized with how to set up a show, how to take a call, etc., with the aim of setting up a practice show first and then an actual show about the second week of January, once the holidays are over and people's lives are back to normal. how's that sound? is there a time that's better or worse for you?
nevermind! i just found it. reading it now. looks good. you might want to change your description of the orbits of the planets to "elliptical" as opposed to "epileptic"! the planets don't have periodic seizures as far as i know. :P lol
i like it! the layout and colors are clean and simple. you're letting the content speak rather than fluffing it up with other stuff. the posts i've seen so far have been important and helpful stuff. i'll be interested to see the fulfillment of the series on Logic and Metaphysics.
