Ever notice how sayings are used to reinforce an idea or an adage? "He who hesitates is lost." Ever stop to think about how many of these sayings can turn out to be diametrically opposed to each other? "He who hesitates is lost." and "Look before you leap." How many of these do you folks know of? Feel free to list as many "Diametrically Opposed Sayings"

Yes, an economy that uses machines to increase food production, packaging and the ability to transport that food has led to the ability to sustain more people. However, we can't neglect the influence of better education in terms of how to preserve the food for longer periods of time which has allowed for better management in times of winter and/or drought as well as to get food to places where ag

Easter Island is an example of over population without any outside influences. The natives living on the island were isolated yet the population became larger than the island could support. Tribal wars broke out until the population was decimated. It was at some point after all the killing, starvation and death through lack of resources for fire (i.e. most of the trees had been cut down without n

That may be part of it but not solely. Look at China or Asia in general as well as India and the Mid East. Populations have been exploding in those areas and I seriously doubt there are anywhere as many Catholics as there are other religions in those areas. In general (I believe this was on the internet somewhere but I forget where) wherever you have very few women's rights you have high populati

What about over population? Eventually, if the population continues to increase at its present rate, or even faster given that each couple (man and woman) can produce a lot of children and those children can do the same, we will be at another crises (sp). Each new individual will require food, shelter, etc and this will tax the Earth's resources even more so than it already does today. We would

Did you go back and take a look at the video I described in the last section of my previous post? The "facts" concerning the nose and no nose of a plane exiting the other side of the building, listed by the commentator, is precisely the kind of slipshod analysis I see rampant in alot of these conspiracy theories. No planes crashed into the World Trade Centers, or the Pentagon, or in (I

Well, I watched the videos (all of them). The missing plane, the dark plane, the secondary explosion. None of them present convincing evidence that no planes flew into the World Trade Centers as far as I'm concerned. Take the missing plane. I'm stuck looking at a grainy video that claims the media doctored their video because there are two versions and one doesn't show a plane. Well if a video c

In all honesty how many people have seen buildings as large as the ones in the World Trade Center fall down before from such an event? Many of us have watched shows showing planned demolitions of somewhat tall buildings, but how many can actually say they have seen a building fall down due to planes crashing into them before 911? What basis do we have for a comparison? We can sit here and say ge

I stand corrected Avatar, she did not say "cameras strategically placed" she actually said "well positioned cameras". My error. I don't think this changes the fact of my previous post that it would not be unusual for newscrews and people in general to film what was indeed a major event of American history in the making. I see her statement of "well positioned cameras&quo

Curious, the main event (that of the "militery plane" crashing into the World Trade Center) seems to be missing and all we are left with is an explosion and some lady from far off saying it is so. Doesn't cut it as evidence to me. Sounds more like conspiracy propaganda than anything based on reality. degiem1

"Cameras strategically placed" What is she talking about? When the first plane went into the first tower, I (to date) have only seen one single video of that first incident. It was recorded by a camera crew, doing a piece on one of the FDNY brigades, that heard the low flying jet over NY City. Now I can understand the camera person looking up with his camera since a low flying air

Curious, the number of stars circling the dome in the top picture = 72. The number of the first ring of octagon indentations = 36. 36 X 72 = 2592 which is one tenth of the total number of years for the Earth's rotational axis to make one complete precessional rotation. 5 rings of octagon indentations. 5 X 36 X 72 = 12960 which is one half the total number of years for the Earth's rotational a

No doubt there would be technical and logistical (or even legal) problems to overcome, however other yearly events such as the (I believe its called) "Burning Man" Festival happen, so I don't see this as an impossibility. Another idea would be that teams pay entry fees based on the acreage they needed for their designs and tethered hot air balloons could take folks up for a view (and t

I wonder if the location of each plate has any significance. For example; the symbol under which the gold plate was found represents gold; the symbol the silver plate was found under represents silver; and the symbol the bronze plate was found under represents bronze in some kind of language. The fact that one of the plates had the crop circle, in which it was found, shown on its face may be sa

Just a thought. Has anyone (not necessarily here, but in general) hosted a crop circle contest for those artistically inclined, to go out to a preselected field or fields (with the farmers' permission and, possibly, compensation for them) to develope crop circles during the day and then have pictures taken from the air and have their creations judged based on certain merits (i.e. originality, pr

Thank you for your replies and links. I've found it interesting that though the calendar ends in 2012 it does in no way signify the end of mankind, just as someone seeing our calendar ending on December 31st doesn't mean the end of us. It juat means that a cyclic event has come to an end and a new one is beginning i.e. January 1st. However I find that the winter solstice of 2012, Dec 21 being clo

Been hearing alot about how the Mayan Calendar ends on this date (21 December 2012) in our presently used calendar (Gregorian?) Now to convert dates from one calendar to another you have to have a common point of reference. For example, comparing dates in the Jewish calendar to dates in the Gregorian calendar there is some common point at which you know one date lines up with another and hence y

Hi Rockhoundfacs; You said: "The occasion of the disobedience was brought about by the deceiver. He first cast doubt upon the Word of God: Genesis 3:1 "The serpent...said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said...?" He then flatly denies God's Word: Genesis 2:4 "Ye shall not surely die..." Eve was decieved, agreeing with the deceiver, and ate of the tree that God had command

Hi Kimberly; This is a bit of a tangent but still very interesting in my opinion. I refer to the passages you posted: Genesis 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Genesis 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for i

Another problem concerning the beginnings of mankind is the case that Adam and Eve had all these children but who was there for the children to marry and have children with. The bible does not elaborate on this and one is left to speculate that incest was rampant in the beginning generations of Adam and Eve's offspring. The above consideration leads again to more speculation on the mental state

Hi, Myrina and Kboldt; I see these passages as instrumental in dispelling the myth that myself and no doubt many others have had growing up, that 'sex' was the original sin. " ...And they shall be one flesh." indicates to me that sex was happening between 'the man and his wife' at some point before the original sin occured and that this was no problem for God. Not only was this NOT a
