Quote
b.i.d. (on prescription): Seen on a prescription, b.i.d. means twice (two times) a day. It is an abbreviation for "bis in die" which in Latin means twice a day. The abbreviation b.i.d. is sometimes written without a period either in lower-case letters as "bid" or in capital letters as "BID". However it is written, it is one of a number of hallowed abbreviations of Latin terms that have been traditionally used in prescriptions to specify the frequency with which medicines should be taken.

Other examples include:

q.d. (qd or QD) is once a day; q.d. stands for "quaque die" (which means, in Latin, once a day).

t.i.d. (or tid or TID) is three times a day ; t.i.d. stands for "ter in die" (in Latin, 3 times a day).

q.i.d. (or qid or QID) is four times a day; q.i.d. stands for "quater in die" (in Latin, 4 times a day).

q_h: If a medicine is to be taken every so-many hours, it is written "q_h"; the "q" standing for "quaque" and the "h" indicating the number of hours. So, for example, "2 caps q4h" means "Take 2 capsules every 4 hours."


PO q 6 means "take by mouth every 6 hours".

PO BID means "take by mouth twice a day".

3g IV q 6 means "3g Intravenous therapy every 6 hours".

General Discussion / Psalm 15 is not Optional for Ethical Humans
« Last post by AGelbert on May 09, 2020, 05:37:17 pm »
I'm quite sure I do not take your point. Perhaps I am slow.

First of all, I don't understand what your extended rant/comment has to do with the article I posted. This is your page and you can rant wherever and whenever you want, but it seems a non-sequitur at best to me.

Secondly, when you say, "There is a type of person FAR more dangerous to human society than a low IQ uneducated white supremacist racist pseudo-christian right winger; it's a high IQ peer reviewed biology research scientist that gullible people respect and admire," you give aid and succor to the people who want you dead. While your pictures as regards animal testing are well made, it is easy to dismiss scientific expertise with an airy, "my feelings are just as good as your hard-won knowledge."

The war on expertise is real and waged every day by the bum in the White House and his minions who, in the words of Steve Bannon, "flood the zone with ."

   


So, now you equate me with TRUMPERS and PSEUDO-CHRISTIAN FASCIST BANNON!!!?

Those animal torture and killing in the name "science" pictures did not have JACK to do with "feelings"; They had to do EXCLUSIVELY with morally bankrupt ideology reaping facts.

Look in the mirror if you want see somebody flooding the zone with HYPERBOLIC .

The second argument you just made is right there with your routine election year shame and blame herding/demonization of anyone who votes their consciense in lieu of "the Democratic Party lesser evil". That legerdemain is as morally bankrupt as the one you use to pretend cruel experimentation on animals is "justified" because some God Damned "scientist" you honor and respect does it.

Your pretense that my reaction to your concern troll article listing, among other subjects of police state interest, ATTACKS ON "TRUST AND TRUTH", is a "non sequiter" is telling. You really cannot wrap your "high IQ and educated = ethical" mind around the FACT that a government founded on "Might equals Right" ideology is, BECAUSE of its Unethical Darwinian ROOTS, a CONTINUOUS ATTACK on TRUST and TRUTH. What they are REALLY worried about is being exposed as ENEMIES of TRUTH, not worthy of ANY of we-the-people's TRUST because they LIE CONTINUOUSLY TO RETAIN POWER! Hence the virtue signalling disingenuous hand wringing about "attacks on trust and truth". You pretend you don't know what I'm getting my drawers in a bunch about. Well, I maintain that your article included a clever concern troll backdoor demonization of anyone with the temerity to criticize the "irrefutably science based social value" of Darwinain theory as applied, not just to "science", but "realpolitik" and other ethics free "practical going with the flow" areas that "sophisticated intellectuals" rationally embrace for the "good" of humanity. Maybe you think that taking Psalm 15 to heart is "giving aid and succur to Fascists", but you will never convince me of that.

YOU are the one giving aid and succur to the people that want people like ME dead, even if they may be quite happy keeping you alive for a while. You are a practical fellow, I'll give you that.

Survival of the "fittest", RIGHT? Your definition of what is "ethical" and what is "unethical" is a cherry picker's paradise. Take a bow. You are on the Pottery Barn Ethics Trashing Dream Team. Situational "ethics" are, of course, "justified" by Darwinian theory.       

Thanks for reminding me that this is my forum. I got YOUR MESSAGE loud and clear. THAT IS, you would have placed me under moderation or deleted my post if I had been so "ad hominem disrespectful" to you or your pals at the Doomstead Diner.

You aren't slow, you are ideologically compromised (i.e. in an "Enlightened Voltairian" sort of way) by your embrace of the Darwinian Theory pseudo-scientific paradigm that you honestly believe is helping the human race. Therefore, you will never accept anything I say on this matter as credible, to the point of rushing to mock and disdain anything I say as that of an "ignoramus". My studied opinion that your feelings of intellectual and moral superiority are, not merely unjustified, but irrational in the extreme, impress you like water off a Darwinan duck.

That explains, among other things, why you probably continue to believe that Eddie, the enthusiastic Darwin defending Dentist, despite his serial vitriol and inexcusable ad hominem directed at me and my "Trailer Trash Jesus" Christian world view, is a person of "respect and integrity". I get it, bro.

According to a post you made years ago, you were, or still are, an elder in a Church that I assumed follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. You did say a long time ago that you believed in God. However, if I understand your world view correctly, your theism includes within it the requirement that said theism not interfere with "science". I know exactly what Jesus Christ would say about "animal models". I think you do too, but do not find the views of Jesus Christ relevant to "science". IOW, you do not give a . While it is true that the racist right wing pseudo-christian fundys slap the "I am a Christian" label on them, for you to pretend the teachings of Jesus Christ are not relevent, 24/7 to YOUR LIFE, is a fool's errand. If you want to pretend otherwise, you are fooling only yourself.

If you don't like what I post, fine. I continue to assert that YOUR "cost benefit analysis" of this Darwinian "science" CRAP is morally BANKRUPT. Whether you want to face that now or not, you can COUNT on facing it within seconds after you leave this planet. If you think I am full of fundy , that is your prerogative. I'm not your boss, but God is THE Boss.

However, please remember that I left The Doomstead Diner precisely because I grew tired of this type of back and forth. Let me make myself clear. Whether in the form of snark, mockery, sarcasm, concern troll condescension or arrogant, airy superiority through the fallacious debating technique of an appeal to authority, I don't want to read, in this forum, any more backdoor or front door attacks by you or anybody else on my view that Darwinian Theory is immoral, reprehensible, unscientific and socially destructive in the extreme. If you have judged me and found me lacking in reality based reason to the point that you want nothing to do with me or this tiny, insignificant forum, the door is in the same place it was when you came in. God Bless you, brother. You are free to go or stay anytime it suits your fancy. I will never put you in moderation or take your Admin status from you. I will die right here with you still as a fellow Admin, whether you post here or not. You can even downgrade me from Admin and put me on moderation if you like. I'll leave permanently if you do that, of course. If you don't listen to my request, I will have to start deleting any post that defends Darwinian bullshit, no matter how cleverly phrased. At that point you would get miffed and start deleting mine. That would be really problematic and counterproductive, so listen to reason and CUT THE SH!T. The following is a copy of a post you made in "Comic Relief" that I politely called bullshit on in my resposne. I do not want to see that type of post here any longer. I will not respond to that type of post again. I post here to educate, not to argue. But, I do not need this forum.

Guy on YouTube: "Bullshit."
I don't know what that was all about, and I don't know who the guy on YouTube was or what, specifically, he criticized. However, I see nothing humerous about the appeal to authority fallacious debating technique displayed above. It is a rather obvious attempt to classify anyone criticizing a scientist as someone who does not understand any science and operates on whim and ignorance. IOW, the above is a thoroughly UNSCIENTIFIC cheap shot that has a germ of truth in it, only if you apply it to propagandist emotional button pushers for profit (e.g. Alex Jones). To apply it accross the board to everyone out there is an example of ivory tower arrogance in the extreme, as well as being factually incorrect, it being that when one of their own steps outside the NOMENKLATURA required "peer reviewed" Dogma, they get locked out of the club. Nobel Prize Winner Biochemist Kary Mullis, who invented the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction to identify virus presence) technique, was ostracized for calling bullshit on some unscientific assumptions labelled as HIV "science". He was NOT allowed to publish papers afterwards, even though he was MORE QUALIFIED to write and publish scientific study papers than the peer reviewers locking him out. That is NOT an "isolated example". 

Calling bullshit on bad science is, according to the above cheap shot, unscientific and worthy of disdain IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE SCIENTIFIC NOMENKLATURA. Of course, who are we underedumacated lower life forms with zero peer reviewer credibility to question such loyal servants, the evolutionary apex of Homo sapiens, the pinnacle evolution, populating those hallowed halls of high wisdom and Darwinian certainty? After all, from Darwin until now, it is quite clear how highly evolved the scientists, that have brought about all that wonderful technology that killed more people in a century than any century in human history and trashed enough of the planet to trigger the Sixth Mass Extinction, are.

Virology Lectures 2020 #21: Evolution
9,960 views•Apr 18, 2020

Viral evolution is the change of a viral population in the face of selection pressures . This process occurs faster than in other organisms because viruses produce so many progeny harboring many genome mutations. In this lecture we consider the four main drivers of viral evolution: large numbers of progeny, mutation, selection, and quasispecies effects, and discuss where viruses came from and where they are going.

Agelbert COMMENT: Wonderful. ::) Now people have Darwin Happy Talk Tatoos. What next, a statue to leave offerings to in Vincent's office? Nothing like "objective scientic inquiry", eh, Vincent? The above lecture is so full of evidence free conjecture that only a true believer in the Darwinian Religion would accept the assertions made by Vincent as "facts".

THIS is how complex a cell membrane IS:

WHY doesn't Vincent ever mention those pesky INTERACTOMES? Maybe it is because they don't fit in his "RNA world" pet theory.

THIS is the way Vincent operates:

THIS is what evolution theory true believers like Vincent want YOU to believe happened in prebiotic Earth:

THIS is what Vincent and his co-religionist true believers refuse to do, but MUST DO if they expect anyone with critical thinking skills to take their bold assertions seriously:

Viral mutation is ADAPTATION, not "evolution". Mr. Virologist Vincent cannot seem to tell the difference between those two processes, rather conveniently supporting his claims about "irrefutable evidence of rapid viral evolution". Vincent jumped right in there to assert that viruses "evolve faster than anything else out there, from bacteria to cows", RIGHT? Well, if that is true, how come you cannot show evidence of a virus becoming a bacterium? THAT would be EVOLUTION. But gee, these viruses that "Darwin would love because they evolve so fast", that have been around practically forever, even giving the dinosaurs herpes (that was a good one, Vincent),  just can't seem to "EVOLVE" into anything ELSE but a VIRUS!

Finally, please fact check Vincent's ASSUMPTIONS (START AT: 1:07:20 for several, one after another, evidence free leaps of protein synthesis logic, leaving out how those sugars needed for capsid glycoproteins were "randomly" synthesized) about the synthesis of the pre-virus molecules by viewing the video referenced in the graphics I just posted. Vincent provides NO explanation for the "evolution" of the first RNA Reverse Transcriptase molecule. Perhaps he rushed through that FUNDAMENTALLY IMPORTANT PROCESS (if that does not happen, nothing happens) because, understanding how factorial math IMPOSSIBLE it is for that to occur randomly, AND remain stable for a long enough time to proceed to the next step, he just does not want to talk about it.

Then he glosses over the "random" synthesis of other incredibly complex molecules, indispensable for the existence of a virus, (i.e. structural ENZYMES), as if they just popped randomly into the "RNA world" primordial soup. NO FACTS, just CONJECTURE dressed up as, 'WE THINK' "facts".

Notice the, "WE CAN SEE THE ACQUISITION OF CAPSID PROTEINS"  CONJECTURE. Hello, Vincent. WHY don't you spend some time explaining to your students that CAPSID PROTEINS, even in the T1 arrangement, all must be chiral IN THE SAME WAY and all must be folded, from the primary to quaternary structure, IDENTICALLY for them to self assemble into a capsid? YOU did not do that because you KNOW that only a Ribosome and a Chaperonin, neither of which existed in the prebiotic Earth, can DO THAT. Yes, friends, it cannot happen randomly because of the factorial math, something that Vincent avoids like the COVID--19 plague unless he wants to talk up viral mutation "evolutionary" diversity.

Listen closely to Vincent in the above happy talk, fact free pitch about the synthesis of the first virus as he says, in a KEY part of that process, "We don't know how that happened". No kidding, Vincent. You sure DON'T. Until you adequately explain, through Darwinian Theory RANDOM processes, HOW THAT HAPPPENED, you cannot assert, with any objective scientific credibility, that it happened "randomly". YET, we have to take your FAITH that SEVERAL sine qua non processes needed for viral particle evolution  "just happpened" as "FACT"?

YOU are the one that said "you do not care for beliefs, just facts". If it is good for goose, it is good for the scientist gander, Vincent. Below, please find,  some Darwinian Primordial Soup to add to your "evolution soup to nuts" theatrics. It's less embarrasingly ignorant than the "evolution" of Homo sapiens graphic timeline as "evidence" that viruses will "do better than humans". Yeah, right...
