Quote# 63312

[Do you accept the fact that genes control skin color (as well as the color of hair and eyes)?]

No...genes are the ultimate cause of nothing. Genes are the end result of a deeper cause. Genes, however, do play a role in change. Just as a car is involved in the process of rolling down the street, it is not in itself the cause -- the driver is.

Supersport strikes again! I know I go to bed at night feeling better knowing there is pure genius out there. <sarcasm>

WTF is this even supposed to mean?

The "Genes" in this seem to be of the "Ray" kind.

Genes are only a vehicle used by something deeper? Let me guess. It begins with "G" and ends with "od"?

G

Gamepod?

Supersport goes on to say "that is the non-malignant variety of skin cancer". Non-malignant cancer? That's like saying non-lunar moon or non-aqueous water.

Maybe if I have another glass of wine I'll understand what the hell he is trying to say.

Nope, didn't work.

You fail at genetics and at life.

Genes are the ultimate cause of your existence, buddy. Take a biology class!

Cancer is only classified as malignant if some of the cancer cells have broken free from the main tumor and swim freely in the bloodstream. If one of said loose cells find a new place to settle down and start raising a family, the cancer is said to have "metastasized" at the new site.

There really is such a thing as non-malignant cancer. Thing is, a non-malignant tumor can become malignant if some part of it undergoes the right mutation.

Obviously somebody hasn't heard of the lymphatic system before.

Metaphorical fail.

You really are desperately trying to make as little sense as possible, right?

I read the news today.. Oh! Boy.

I don't even know where to begin with this twoddle.

Has he got Genes mixed up with Jeans, because they have no bearing on skin colour?

Whenever I start worrying about the future of humanity, I read something posted by Supersport.

Then I break down sobbing.

I better leave a trail of bread crumbs so I don't get lost in his maze of almost random comments.

You mean mutations are the driver and genes are the car? Or maybe natural selection is the car, mutation of genes are the fuel, and evolution is the road. That's more like it.

I think he's on to something, people.
