      The adults of a hypothetical turtle species are known to mate randomly in mid-sea. The adult females then go to beaches all over Southeast Asia to lay their eggs. However, it is observed that these adult females are much more likely to return to the beach where they were born to lay their eggs, than go to a new beach. a) Someone has hypothesized that differences in the choice of nesting sites arise from differences in chromosomal genes. Design an experiment to test this hypothesis. What results will falsify this hypothesis? b) What would be the consequences of this behaviour on the ecology and the genetic composition of this turtle species? *

      In any explosion – or any event for that matter – the laws of the physical universe tell us that there must exist the elements to produce that event. In other words, every event – and every thing in the physical universe – has a source. This we have learned by scientific observation and many decades of research.

      quote JohnLambdin:

      I never heard it put quit like this but I like it! I am going to actually save this quote by you. I feel like people always try to look for answers to everything when we have already been given the answer and we are too foolish to see it.
