Pre-52 DC Universe was just much better than New 52; better character development, richer worlds, more interesting character and team dynamics. And I felt like it was just getting better and better with no end in sight...until the relaunch. Granted, I love Flashpoint, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, and a few of the redesigns. And I'm glad that the Relaunch has boosted DC's sales. But so many of the best stories from DC's history have been lost; and sadly (especially for me since my love of Catwoman and Batman got me into comics in the first place) Catwoman was just one of the casualties. I hope that they find a creative team in the future that can do Catwoman justice and make her into the woman she was before the relaunch - occasionally heroic, always complicated, and willing to stick her neck out for those less fortunate.

Pre-52 Barbara Gordon would've been an excellent president. (New-52 Barbara Gordon can only be class president...)

@TheSwordsman: Um, no. That's NOT why I say it's petty. I say it's petty because it has no bearing on the strength of my original arguments. You only bring it up in order to appear intellectually superior, when it just makes you look like a dick.

Oh, and that makes total sense. If it's not australopithicus, it must be human. So a banana is not australopithicus - so it must be human. Dark matter is not australopithicus - so it must be human. The oceans are not australopithicus - so they must be human.

And, without having done any research on the matter, I'm going to guess that the comparison of the "aboriginal skull" and the "human skull" (because aborigines aren't humans, you know...) is either incorrectly classified or it's a fraud (and racist in either case).

@TheSwordsman: Wuh isn't a word? To that I say, pzschaw!

The whole redundancy argument is just petty.

I never said anything about australopithicus. I was referring to homo erectus. And, while some argue whither or not they could be humans, I think that the general scientific consensus is that they're a separate species that predates humans.

@TheSwordsman: Wuh? Agnostic is never used in that way except by people who don't know what an agnostic is. Agnostics never believe that there's something there, by definition. They believe that it can't be proven that something is there or not.

It's called The Creation Evidence Museum, not Creationist Evidence Museum. So, no, it's not redundant.

There's no "may" about the "finger". It's a fraud. And the Kenyan footprint belonged to our evolutionary ancestors, not modern day homo sapiens. So it doesn't support your argument that humans lived millions of years ago.

For the record I am "agnostic" and not a creationist. I believe intelligent design of some sort went into the creation of the universe and all that is in it, yes. It is a belief. I do not pretend that it is a fact. To me believing any theory as fact means that one has lost their scientific objectivity.

I think that technically means you're not an agnostic, because an agnostic believes that there's no way to either prove or disprove the existence of god, and so assumes a philosophically neutral attitude to the question. However, you've admitted a positive belief in the existence of a god-like entity, which means that you can't be neutral on the subject of whither there's a god or not.

Also, I think your cretaceous finger is a fraud. It's on display in the Creation Evidence Museum, which pushes a creationist ideology, and the only websites that I can find that support it are creationist websites. (How they can reconcile displaying a finger that's allegedly over a million years old and a their belief that the earth is only a few thousand years old is beyond me.) So it's hardly supported by the scientific community at large.
