Gods People have a tragic history with alot of death and war.
I wonder what Gods purpose with that is?



I don't think all of this was meant to happen if it were for God but we all know some characteristics of the human kind don't leave much to our imagination...

God did not write the books attributed to him. Satan did, through his minions. And Satan's plan to have the people of God wage war on each other is blossoming to full glory.

Anyone who looks at the history of what became after these books were written has to agree they can not be the work of God. God would never write his works in a way that could be used for such evil. Only Satan has that kind of evil in his heart. To split and divide and set man upon man.

+1 I agree to the extent that all of the religious works were written by men who had an agenda to promote. But since I'm not sure there is a god I am more certain that Satan doesn't exist, except for in the mind of man.

I was a kid when the Savannah was being built and thought it was the most beautiful ship ever. I even still have a model of it on one of my shelves. There are low levels of radioactive material being released into the atmosphere at most coal fired power plants due to the trace levels found in most coal. Had the world not been afraid of nuclear powered ships the Savannah's problems could have been overcome.

If they are small planets the water vapor would have escaped off into space as it did on Mars long ago.

Then why does Titan have an atmosphere. There are other factors that can be involved.

Most of the scientists involved still think that Voyager I has left the solar system and the final decision may be a matter of semantics. It's sort of like the argument about whether Pluto is a planet or not.

Well it isn't like any of the other solutions that have been mentioned would work either. But this discussion isn't about potential solutions. It's about taking sides and then accusing the other side of being cruel and inhumane.

It speaks volumes that not one of you mentioned my solution. Not even to ridicule it.

I believe in the message delivered by Christ and that we should all live by his teachings, however I also believe he was a mortal man just like the rest of us.

No one can prove scientifically that God exists, but I would never try to convince anyone that he/she doesn't. The existence of God is purely a matter of faith. On the other hand I wish that people would quit trying to convince me and everyone else that shares my belief that no proof can be found, that there is logical proof of his/her existence.

I think that while we were meeting last week he realised what he would have to do to make the house habitable for me. Plus I think he hopes to turn the property to a commercial developer that will buy the entire block and build a small industrial park.

I knew all along that it woulds be somewhat expensive to make the improvements and assumed he was truly interested in helping me solve my upcoming financial problem. As it turns out he is just a normal American businessman and real estate speculator, Like I responded to his email, I was disappointed by his decision but not surprised. Maybe he can find himself another renter to watch the property that doesn't have so many needs.

Well, as I kind of suspected after not hearing from the property owner all week he has withdrawn his offer. Like I said I am immediately relieved but now back to a point where I have to find a solution to my upcoming financial crunch.

researchers aren't certain of the cause


Chandra: Can you analyse the image on monitor circuit 2?
HAL: Yes. There is a circular object near the equator. It is twenty-two thousand kilometres in diameter. It is comprised of rectangular objects.
Chandra: How many?
HAL: One million, three hundred and fifty five thousand, plus or minus one thousand.
Chandra: And what is the proportion of the objects in question?
HAL: One by four by nine.
Chandra: Do you recognise these objects?
HAL: Yes. They are identical in size and shape to the object you call the monolith. Ten minutes to ignition. All systems nominal.
Chandra: Is the number of monoliths constant?
HAL: No, they are increasing.
Chandra: At what rate?
HAL: Once every two minutes.
Curnow: Look closely. Tell me I'm nuts - are the cloud formations going towards the spot?
Floyd: You're not nuts.
Orlov: Looks like the thing is eating the planet.
Floyd: I think it is.

Arthur C. Clarke was sure of the cause. ;^)

I thought of that too.

I don't see how the dissipation of the red spot could in any way impact Jupiter's ability to protect the inner solar system from comets and asteroids.

They put several theories on the table to look at. Even some that propose a different fate for the universe than the currently popular one. There just isn't enough verifiable information to reach any solid conclusions. I think it is beyond our grasp to be able to say with any certainty what the fate of the universe is. They talked about the possibility that space may one day spontaneously change it's state when a certain density is reached. The current density of space on average is 5 molecules of hydrogen per cubic meter and they propose that with expansion at some point the average density will drop below a threshold that will cause space to pop like a soap bubble ending the universe as we know it.

Searching for life and searching for intelligent life are two different things. I think finding life out there in some form will be relatively easy and accomplished soon. Finding intelligent beings on the other hand will be difficult unless they cooperate and make it easy. It could happen at any time but if we must find them on our own it may take centuries.
18) Message boards : SETI@home Science : Where do we search? (Message 1544296)
Posted 9 days ago by Profile Bob DeWoody
For all of the looking and listening we do I feel we won't discover any other intelligent beings until they want us to find them. This is not to say we shouldn't be looking because I think the looking and listening is a good pursuit. And just because the results so far are zero doesn't mean we are alone, it just means we either haven't looked in the right places yet or we don't have the proper tools to recognise an alien presence in the nearby regions of the galaxy.

Bob the current theory is that even black holes will evaporate until all that is left is pure energy everything will break down even atoms will breakdown to there fundamental particles and nothing but energy is left what ever that means , quarks or fermions or electrons what ever ??

Yes, I saw programming that claims the future of the universe is to evaporate into nothing but I didn't see where they explained what the role of dark matter and dark energy would be in that scenario. And since more than 75% of the universe is composed of those two components I think their theory has some big holes in it. It is most likely that mankind will never figure out what the true fate of the universe is since we just don't have enough information.

The only solution is one that neither side will accept. Put the whole region under international (U.N.) control, round up all the guns and rockets, arrest anyone on either side that so much as throws a rock at his neighbor and see if you can hold the peace long enough for a generation or two to survive without the threat of violence.

The above will never happen so the violence will continue for a very long time
