I guess this person is destined to remain a (kindergarten?) student for the rest of his/her life...

Double post. Where for art thou delete button?

And yet somehow we share the vast majority of our DNA with chimps...

It would be remarkable if non-Earth or unnatural Elements were found in a body. Observing that this does not happen is somewhat trite.

We are Horta.

Well yeah, everything organic on the planet is more or less made from the same finite set of elements.
More water in the body though...leads me to wonder if Dog and all his angels pissed on the heap of dust to boost the water content.

Human bodies are made up of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and other elements.
Honestly I don't know what the chemcial makeup of dust (I'm not a chemist) is but I don't think it's the same

Nope. Try again.

Not really. Our bodies are closer to sea water than dirt. They're made mostly of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, with calcium, iron and a few other minerals thrown in. Dirt contains great quantities of silicon and aluminum, which our bodies have very little of, and very little of the nitrogen needed to make protein. In nature, most nitrogen comes from lightning or from nitrogen-fixing bacteria, mainly in the roots of legumes like clover (or nowadays, from lawn fertilizer). Since fundies believe it didn't rain until Noah's Flood (otherwise they can't explain how the rainbow appeared for the first time), dirt would have contained little or no nitrogen until bacteria had time to put it there.

Perhaps saying things like this is why you are a fucking lifelong student.

Have a shower fundie.

Actually, house dust is about 90% human skin, because mammals constantly shed small amounts of skin, and humans are the dominant mammal of any household. Abandoned farmhouses collect surprisingly little dust.

The song "Dust in the Wind" is not a science lesson.
4/27/2009 4:07:39 PM
Not even close.

Humans are primarily composed of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Nitrogen, as are all living organisms. Considering that this thus encompasses the most common element in the universe and the most common compound on Earth, the fact that there's a degree of overlap between people and dirt is unremarkable. However, the chemical composition of dirt is rather different than that of humans--it's like saying that the composition of, say, Harry Potter is the same as that of the Bible. They both contain words composed of the same set of letters, but the way in which they are organized are very different.

Basic biology fail.
4/27/2009 4:16:25 PM
The body's composition is the same as dust from the ground
OK, here are the numbers:
Oxygen: body: 65%, dirt: 47%
Carbon: body: 18, dirt: traces
Hydrogen: body: 10%, dirt: traces
Nitrogen: body: 3%, dirt: traces
Silicon: body: 0%, dirt: 27%
Aluminum: body: 0%, dirt: 8%
Iron: body: .7%*, dirt: 5%
* Total of Iron, Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Molybdenum, Fluorine, Chlorine, Iodine, Manganese and Cobalt
Lifelong Student needs to pay attention in school.

I thought you were a lifelong student from a love of knowledge.
Having read your comment I now understand you're a lifelong student because your teachers have held you back a class- incessantly.
Well done teachers!
4/27/2009 4:18:59 PM
Lifelong student of WHAT? Stupidity? Ignorance? Lunacy? I'd say all three.
4/27/2009 4:45:20 PM
4/27/2009 4:47:09 PM
If by "the same", you mean completely, and totally different, then you're absolutely right.
4/27/2009 4:55:15 PM
Lifelong moron, perhaps.
You might get sympathy points for severe head trauma in your past, though.
