Hi Patrick, You mention: "When some of the Messiahs closest aides asked him when the "parousia" (second coming) would be, he replied that no man knows the day or the hour, not the son but only the Father." Would you be able to point out to me in which scripture, line or verse, this particular word, "parousia" is written? Sorry I am without a concordance. Also any

Hi Brif, According to the link 'timeline': 1798.....term Soda Water first coined 1861.....term Pop first coined (earlier than I would have thought) And how about those Irish...1851, created Ginger Ale. We've got one Soda Fountain left in town, after being closed for years someone bought the store and restored it. What a treat. Pati

"One I have never been able to track down and figure out is 'red up,' my mother would say 'I have to red up the house before so and so gets here,' meaning she was going to pick up, straighten up, clean, the house. I haven't a clue where that came from or how it came about." Hi Gengus, I'm going to guess, naw I'm going to bet that "red-up" is short for "ready up"

Hi Mike, In my little neck of the woods, in North Carolina U.S.A. we always said "soft-drink" To us this referred to any soda drink w/o alcohol. When Soda-Fountains came into being the word Soda became popular but we would usually order a soda at a soda fountain and a soft-drink elsewhere. And they were soooo good in a glass bottle sitting in a tub of ice. As kids we use to find it

That is an interesting little gizzmo!

Thanks John for the review. Tho gloomy sounding, I do want to see it for as mentioned I'd not heard of this concept before re: soul substance = 21 grams. Be interesting to see if Hollywood :) expands more on Dr. Duncan MacDougall's hypothesis or incorporates present Physics into the theme. As a side note: You mention in your Cremation post...

Hi JD, I wonder if you might have some non-numerical :) information to some questions I had arise from reading your interesting post? You mention the movie "21 grams" is based on the theory that at the time of death, the human body loses that amount of weight - with the assumption that this signifies the loss of the soul. Then you mention in the 1907 issue of a journal titled America

Hi Paul, Interesting those barren circles. Brought to mind one we have here in North Carolina (USA). I don't have any research info., if indeed any has been done, but here is a little blurb from a "Places to Visit" booklet I have. I'm now curious as to how long this spot has been known and wonder if the local Indians have any mention in their mythology. I've known about it since I was

Hi Rob, You mention: "The saviour God's are divine because they are the host of heaven. According to the Bible, however, they fell because they decided to follow their own will instead of God's. They were angels who set themselves up as gods." My questions: Wouldn't that now be past tense ? In other words "The savior God's WERE divine because THEY WERE the host of heaven.&quo
