    Nice, indeed. But what about copy right?

    Mr Dembski,

    Can you please ask Trent how many other research papers Rational Wiki is hosting for the purpose of unchallenged debate?

    OT: Dr. Dembski, why do you make posts on this blog, then turn off comments to those posts? Just curious, but I’d like to hear an explanation if I could.

    Of Cyclical “Symbiotic” note:

    Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Design
    The mutual relationship between vascular plants (flowering plants) and arbuscular mycorrihizal fungi (AMF) is the most prevalent known plant symbiosis. Vascular plants provide sites all along their root systems where colonies of AMF can assemble and feed on the nutrients supplied by the plants. In return, the AMF supply phosphorus, nitrogen, and carbon in molecular forms that the vascular plants can readily assimilate. The (overwhelming) challenge for evolutionary models is how to explain by natural means the simultaneous appearance of both vascular plants and AMF. An even greater challenge is (1) how to explain the plants “evolving” structures in their root systems to house the AMF and to channel carbohydrate resources to feed them; and (2) how to explain the AMF evolving the means to harvest phosphorus, nitrogen, and carbon, transform them into forms suitable for vascular plants, and provide transportation systems to channel these resources into the plants’ root systems.

    Soil aggregation and carbon sequestration are tightly correlated with the abundance of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi: results from long-term field experiments:
    Excerpt: This highly significant linear correlation suggests there are serious consequences to the loss of AMF from ecosystems.

    Indeed. Indeed.
    There’s lots of evidence for a nuked earth. Here’s just one. If you’re truth compass demands scholarly works, which is arbitrary, I saw some links to those to if you google this subject. I’m a believer myself:
