      1) I will help you with your writing,  
                Probably through me you will see,  
                But if you want to ship me,  
                You'll put me right inside of me.  

                I wear many different hats you know,  
                In construction plus I'm tracing,  
                I also do work for the board,  
                Lots of kids use me for a racing.  

                You can fold me, tear me,  
                Rip me without using all your might,  
                But be careful how you touch me,  
                I may give you my famous bite.  

                What Am I?  

      2) An old man said to a young man, "I have a daughter. She  
      has as many brothers as she has sisters. Each one of her  
      brothers has twice as many sisters as he has brothers.  
      How many sons and daughters do I have?"

      3) When you walk through the front door, you are in  
      the back. What is it?

      4) My first is in add, but not in take,  
              My second's in joint, but not in steak,  
              My third is in stack, but not in heap,  
              My fourth is in thick, but not in deep,  
              My fifth is in veal, but not in lamb,  
              My sixth is in ounce, but not in dram,  
              My seventh's in smile, but not in frown,  
              My whole is a writer of highest renown.  
              Who am I?  

      5) What English word has three successive double letters? 

      6) A man asked his son what he wanted for his birthday. His  
      son couldn't decide, so he asked him what he wanted to be  
      when he grew up. His son replied, "either a mechanic or a  
      musician". What did the man buy his son for his birthday?  

      7) Out of the eater came forth meat,
      and out of the strong came forth sweetness.

      A UNC student in tears called her father.
      "What's the matter?" asked the father.
      "You gave me some bad financial advise," she said.
      "I did? What did I tell you?"
      "You told me to put my money in that big bank, and
      now that big bank is in trouble."
      "What are you talking about, that's one of the largest banks
      in the world," he said, "surely there must be some mistake."
      "I don't think so," said the girl, "they just returned one of
      my checks with a note saying, 'Insufficient Funds'."

      A New Kind of Science?:
      Stephen Wolfram's Challenge
      to Natural Selection

      After earning a Ph.D. from Caltech at age 20, Stephen Wolfram founded
      the corporation that produces MATHEMATICA, the world's leading
      technical mathematics software.

      For nearly ten years, Wolfram has -- by his own description -- been "an
      almost complete recluse." Wolfram became a recluse because he wanted to
      spend time thinking about a problem that science had failed completely
      to explain: the origin of complexity -- the vastly intricate systems,
      especially in biology, which so excite our curiosity.

      Now Wolfram thinks he's found the answer to this puzzle, and he's
      published it in an encyclopedic book, A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE. Almost
      overnight, A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE shot to the top and stayed at the top
      of the Amazon.com rankings.

      Wolfram is convinced that it's only a matter of time before the rest of
      the scientific community grasps that the puzzle of complexity requires
      an entirely new approach. And this is especially the case, Wolfram
      argues, in biology.

      Ask nearly any evolutionary biologist what assembled the human eye, or
      the three billion base pairs of DNA in our genome, and that biologist
      will answer, "Natural selection, of course."

      But Wolfram is not entirely persuaded by this answer. "No clear
      understanding has ever emerged," he writes, "of just why such processes
      should in the end actually lead to much complexity at all." After
      twenty years of studying the problem, Wolfram no longer views natural
      selection as a wonder-working process. "I have increasingly come to
      believe," he argues, "that in fact its power is remarkably limited."

      Does this mean that Wolfram accepts the theory of intelligent design?
      No -- not yet anyway. Although he writes, "Just how complexity arises
      was never really resolved" by Darwinian evolution, and "I have come to
      have some sympathy for the creationists," Wolfram thinks all the
      complexity in nature will arise naturally from simple rules. He
      illustrates this by "cellular automata," pattern-generating systems
      that churn out complexity from a handful of rules. Because cellular
      automata can make complex patterns, Wolfram thinks he's solved the
      complexity puzzle.

      But other scientists are skeptical. Scientist and inventor Ray
      Kurzweil, for example, points out that we aren't interested in
      complexity simply as complexity. The exact pattern of jellybeans in a
      bag of candy is exceedingly complex, but no one really cares to explain
      it. We do want to explain what design theorist Bill Dembski calls "the
      specified complex patterns" -- the patterns that do things.

      On that score, Kurzweil argues, Wolfram's cellular automata fall short.
      "They do not evolve," he says, into "insects, or humans, or Chopin
      preludes, or anything else that we might consider of a higher order of
      complexity." Wolfram's cellular automata, Kurzweil concludes, "are not
      capable of solving interesting problems." To do that, Dembski and other
      design theorists argue, intelligence is absolutely necessary.

      The book, A NEW KIND OF SCIENCE, starts with an important problem:
      Science has not explained the origin of biological complexity.
      Wolfram's solution may fall short, but at least this brilliant man
      acknowledges the immensity of the puzzle. And in time, he may join
      others in seeing that intelligent design means an intelligent Designer.

      If you stop believing what your professor told you
      had to be true and if you start thinking for yourself
      you may come to some conclusions you hadn't
      expected. You may find the Bible makes more
      sense than you thought or were told to think.
