    pamela got a reaction from Moontanman in Proof Of God   
    long time since i argued religion, especially christianity, so hows 'bout a little devils advocate for some good times.
    okay pal, lets take a look at your whole chip theory-doesn't make sense really. So if this antichrist was out to get people under his sway, then why would he make the chip so obvious? i mean seriously, about a bazillion religious types out there got this OMG chip thing in their head. So yeah, they would avoid it like the plague. I thought this cat was some great deceiver? Seems like if he was going for the elect of the almighty he might go for something a little more subtle. Something so inconsequential that it might be overlooked. How's about something cool like an injection. Picture this- biological terrorist attack with anthrax. the government or your UN if you prefer states you better get this special vaccination or you're toast. So yeah, the multitudes line up get the injection and bam they are saved. But unbeknownst to them, its a mix with recombinate DNA of of the big nasty dude and now they all got him inside them so to speak,living in their blood. scary times. Can't chop the head or hand off to get rid of that sign can you now.
    ok all silliness aside- what makes you angel- and i seriously have an issue with that name- make you think that you have some sort of right to interpret some old religious text and flaunt your viewpoint on a science forum? You cannot give proof of god- there simply isn't any. Your text requires faith not evidence- so hang it up pal- we don't go for proselytizing around here.

    Seriously folks, its a matter of choice. You can believe and therefore act upon those beliefs. You can get tied up in groupthink and run a muck as a mob. Anyone can use any justification to kill- doesnt have to be religion. The bottom line out is,the choice of the individual.The indoctrinated children of today are the killers of tomorrow. You can bemoan religion until you are wormfood, but the masses seem to gravitate towards it. Whether that be as a result of fear, or needing a hope or simply an unstable mind. Point is, religion has been here for a long time now and its not going to go away any time soon

    Hi guys!
    The theme about anunnakis is recently discussed. it's interesting to know your position in it. Do you believe in anunnakis?
    As you may already know the Earth is a hollow planet, but did you ever questioned what is inside there? Probably you did, but could not find enough reliable information. Nevertheless, the life underneath the earth's crust is in full swing. Thousands of underground cities were secretly built, while you were busy at your work and house. What are those cities for? Houses, offices, secret laboratories for those whom we, as regular people, are not suppose to see. Are we being fooled, controlled and manipulated exactly by those people? Yes we are. We call them Anunnnaki, Illuminati, founders of the NWO.

    A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Glasgow copper.
    He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a lawyer from LONDON and is certain that he has a better education then any Jock cop.
    He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Glasgow cops expense!!
    Glasgow cop says, "Licence and registration, please."
    London Lawyer says, "What for?"
    Glasgow cop says, "Ye didnae come to a complete stop at the stop sign."
    London Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."
    Glasgow cop says, "Ye still didnae come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please"
    London Lawyer says, "What's the difference?"
    Glasgow cop says, "The difference is, ye huvte come to complete stop, that's the law, Licence and registration, please!"
    London Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my licence and registration and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket."
    Glasgow cop says, "Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir."
    The London Lawyer exits his vehicle.
    The Glasgow cop takes out his baton and starts beating the living sh*t out of the lawyer and says, "Dae ye want me to stop, or just slow doon?"

    JMJones, I acknowledge your statement and as you are correct, I apologize for my incorrect terminology.
    Uplift, I would indeed define life as what living things do, as a very (very) broad definition. When using this definition, we must think, "what is it that scientists do?" In defining what scientist do we define science. Just like with life, "what is it that all living things do? What is it that they have in common?" This is where we get a definition of life.
    As far as thought experiments go, I don't know if I would call them science, maybe more along the line of philosophy of science, but not science in and of themselves.
    Also, I am neither supporting nor denying (verbally) anything JudgeDAR said, simply interested in finding more about what he thinks. I enjoy learning about all things, even things that I find incredulous. Like Eclogite would tell us, An open mind is more about accepting nothing, than about accepting anything.
    With our ideas being so drastically different where God is concerned, I move that we join SV and the Doctor and take up the peace pipe. :D

    The statues could not have existed long before his subjects arrived to settle the island.
    Estimated dates of initial settlement of Easter Island ranges between 300 to 1200 CE, coinciding with the arrival of the first settlers in Hawaii. The statues were carved from 1100–1680 CE, according to rectified radio-carbon dates.
    (Source, Hunt, T. L.; Lipo, CP (2006). "Late Colonization of Easter Island". Science 311 (5767): 1603–6. doi:10.1126/science.1121879. PMID 16527931. And Hunt, Terry; Lipo, Carl (2011). The Statues that Walked: Unraveling the Mystery of Easter Island. Free Press. ISBN 1-43915031-1.)
    The statues were carved by the Polynesian colonizers of the island, primarily between 1250 CE and 1500 CE. Completed statues were moved to ahu mostly on the coast. They were subsequently erected with red stone cylinders (pukao) on their heads. The actual carving of each statue certainly require tremendous effort and resources. The island was treeless by the time the Europeans first visited, thus the movement of the statues remained a mystery. Since then, pollen analysis has established that the island was almost totally forested until 1200 CE. The tree pollen disappeared from the record by 1650, around the same time the statues stopped being made.
    The quarries and stone tools seem to have been abandoned abruptly, leaving many completed sculptures outside the quarry awaiting transport and almost as many incomplete statues still in the quarries. During the nineteenth century this led to conjecture that the island was the remnant of a sunken continent and that most completed moai were under the sea.
    That idea has long been debunked.
    It is now understood that some statues were rock carvings never intended to be completed. Some were incomplete because inclusions (imperfections or lumps of hard rock) were encountered; in that case the carvers would abandon a partial statue and start a new one. Some completed statues were meant to remain at Rano Raraku. Some were simply incomplete when the sculpture-building came to an end (circa 1500-1650 CE).
