Hi Merc! Here's what I see: a composite picture made with science cameras, that is, cameras that are using filters to see in specific wavelength, extending beyond that of the human eye. Using this data to create an approximately "true color" image is actually rather difficult, and depending on which filters were used, it may not even be possible to get very close to what an eye would s

Well, I understand what you're saying, and we could discuss the benefits and drawbacks of a society based on consumption or how much better it was in the old days of punched cards, but this is not at all why I was answering your post. Don't take it the wrong way but your argumentation has nothing to do anymore with your original claim that detectable errors in softwares can be avoided merely in v

>racism? i will give you racism. i just had a friend come back from a trip to france and he said he was surprised at how many "no jews allowed" signs were in store and restaurant windows. I'm french. Your "friend" is a liar. You should be ashamed for being so naive as to believe him. Don't you think that this would be a matter of *international* importance if it were true

Well I'm sorry to hear that, right now i'm torn between the wish that we could do something about it, and the wish that each of us had personally done something to you to actually deserve this (just kidding). Francis.

I don't think so, the USA is only the top layer of the upper american continental crust, all in all such a small percentage of the mass of the earth that the orbit would be for all intent and purpose, the same. I think, but then again, I haven't gone thru any calculation to support this :) Call it a hunch :) Francis.

>An interesting article. Only a year ago, you'd be laughed at for suggesting any kind of poleshift/crustal displacement theory er ? Pole flip has little to do with crustal displacement. Pole shifts and flips have been known for decades. I suspect that if you went to the people this article is talking about and talk about ECD, you'd still be laughed at, like a year ago. heh. Francis.

A WARMONGER EXPLAINS WAR TO A PEACENIK By Anonymous PeaceNik: Why did you say we are we invading Iraq? WarMonger: We are invading Iraq because it is in violation of security council resolution 1441. A country cannot be allowed to violate security council resolutions. PN: But I thought many of our allies, including Israel, were in violation of more security council resolutions than Iraq.

>In Pete's mind, polls are about as scientific as orthodox Egyptology. ;) I didn't get that. Seems to me Pete sees egyptological orthodoxy as scientific, and I concur, wholehartedly. He doesn't seem to think that polls can be scientific though, which puts him very much at odds with another established science. There is a method for doing polls scientifically, like you can do many things eithe
