Justin, The Origin of Satan by Elaine Pagels? A good read! Have you ever read Another Roadside Attraction? It's fiction, by Tom Robbins in the early 1990s. A great book! Hilarious! They search for the body of Jesus. Brian

Dominick, I agree with you to a point. But nicknames also convey personality, which I like. Many times, I have posted as khephra but at the end of my post have signed my name, Brian Hoskins. Many people on here know me both as khephra and as Brian. Variety is the spice of life! khephra.....err....Brian ;)

The Salem Witch Trials are a legitimate offering of "mass hysteria", at least on a smaller scale. I had to study the trials, and the influence of the few (driven by greed for land, nonetheless) caused the deaths of 40 or so innocent people. --khephra

Well, of course! Remember the first time we invaded Iraq? The Iraqi army put up virtually no fight at all. We should have sealed the deal back then by taking out Hussein, but we let up. I'm glad to hear this. --khephra

17. My take
Threnbane (and everyone else): Here's my take on a potential World Government idea: What really is the main reason we go to war these days? Race, religion, and differences of culture (which, I know, encompasses a lot of things). Until we as a species learn to live together open-mindedly and without prejudice, there will never be peace. There could be one world government, or there couldn't. I d

Threnbane, Okay, atheism.......yes, it can mean so much more than just "I don't believe in a god." I think atheism can have as many 'levels' and little differences as any set of religious beliefs. Just like Christianity has its many different factions (for lack of a better word).....example Protestantism, Catholicism, Southern Baptism, "Born Again" Christians, Mormon.........

I think it's very interesting to hear of someone's first-hand experience with this topic. The last thing you said struck me: <The whole experience contributed a lot towards my understanding of human nature, but the very best that I can say in favour of a non-human cause for crop circles is “not proven”. I tend to see the crop circles as another example of the "face in the tree" p

I agree with Pete for once (or maybe this is the second time) ;) I see no way of foul play. They drilled a tiny hole. The ONLY part of the robot that could get through that hole was the camera part of it, which fit pretty exactly. There must be something of importance up there somewhere, though. For what reason would the Egyptians go to the trouble of blocking the way with a three inch 'door',

It is obvious Hawass is hiding something, isn't it?? He has said repeatedly there is no reason to continue to excavate the GP because there is nothing left to find. Yet these tunnels, which are "forbidden" for anyone to go near (unless you bribe a guard who couldn't care less) are all over beneath the GP!!! Why keep it a secret? What possible reason could Hawass have to want to hide t

Hi all, Gantenbrink is actually given credit for finding the plug in this article. They even say Hawass is "building off" of Gantenbrink's discovery. Of course, the article also mentions Sichin and 8 inch aliens....... lol Brian

That's a really interesting theory. One thing I would question is whether the Egyptians knew that stars were actually suns like the one warming their planet. I don't think there is any evidence for this. How could they have known this, really? But pyramids reflecting the stars in the sky, I definitely do agree with. Pharaohs were seen as earthly gods, so being buried in a tomb that pointed them

Of course Jesus and God and the like are all portrayed as white. Christianity quickly became a "European-based" religion, so of course white people had to create the myth of Christ in their own image. Haven't you ever seen a black Jesus, though? Go to an inner city Christian church, and more often than not you'll see a black Jesus up on the cross! Funny how religion says God created hu

I don't think it's the shroud of Jesus even if it does date to the first century either. So many people were crucified back then that it could be thousands of people. It's just that the current push is for the sh

Cleopatra, Well, I think one way to figure this out is to carbon date it again, which I believe they are doing. Maybe take a sample from the middle of the shroud where the image has been left? I just ran across a thread about the Rosslyn Chapel which I think relates in a certain way to this thread... Brian
