Toyota uses/used hemisperical heads on their engines for years without labelling them as such. Course Dodge has to go and call it "HEMI" and make a big deal about it.

Besides, Toyota 4-cyl > American V8s...

HA HA!

Feel free. In the off-topic area. No rule against it.

HA HA!
hondas and acuras use hemispherical heads as well because its a very efficient combustion model. The Welch Motor Company is supposedly the first manufacturer to use it.
And yes Toyota motors are more reliable but they are not more fun.

I probably would if it were a topic I wanted to debate or I thought it would be worth it. I don't see a lot of interest here. And besides there are better forums for that.

I think its pretty obvious I'm just trying to be a douche. Sorry, sarcasm is my only quality.
I grew up in a religious family, I'm not. I'll go away now.
You cheeky bastards!!!

True dat. One of the reasons I find belief systems so fascinating.

For those who are in the "can't quite wrap my head around how evolution could create such complex beings without help" camp, here's an interesting article in which scientist at Bristol University England have been able to model the evolution of sight over a timescale 700 million years using...

"...computational analysis to test every hypothesis of opsin evolution proposed to date. The analysis incorporated all available genomic information from all relevant animal lineages, including a newly sequenced group of sponges (Oscarella carmela) and the Cnidarians, a group of animals thought to have possessed the world's earliest eyes.

Using this information, the researchers developed a timeline with an opsin ancestor common to all groups appearing some 700 million years ago."

Bristol University | News from the University | Evolution of vision

Over a timescale that long - which we are barely able to comprehend - perhaps you might start to see a lot less need for a 'designer' or even a 'guider' as an explanation for our present day complexity.
