Since you are interested in learning, I should share with you an observation.
Your commentary is unusually infused with questions revealing an inner concern that you feel you are being judged - - a line of questioning you pursue even if the other person may not have had any intention of judging you. My immediate reaction, you see, was that you were being a little abrupt with a very nice person, @Christy.
Now here is where it gets interesting. In the process of asking questions like this, have you considered the possibility that you may be, in fact, triggering the very reactions of opposition or annoyance?
Let's look at our own little conversation as yet another example of what I'm describing. In my attempt to show you that what you ask people may create the very negative vibrations you seek to avoid, you answered me with a question with a seemingly obvious answer: "Are you suggesting I was doing something undesirable?" Well, yes, Ralph, that is actually what I was trying to suggest.
But rather than offer assurances in response to the higher message, you deflect the whole point of my communication by ignoring the message. And, instead, you essentially say that people don't have to talk with you if they don't want to.
Wow. You win. Hands down.
Now that you know that no scientist has created life in a laboratory, what else would you like to learn more about?
