I think a more relevant question since more and more people are atheists is "what is science for?". We are using science to impoverish vast numbers of human beings by wasting resources and we are using it to murder millions more. There is no longer a moral compass so government is corrupt and is an instrument to funnel all wealth to a few individuals. The world is spiraling do

I read the trilogy by Castaneda as a young man and I confess it had a strong affect on me at the time. I guess it's because I was always something of a sorcerer but didn't know many "tricks" other than magic. Don Juan allowed me to do a much broader array of magic tricks. Don Juan (probably fictional) and I had very similar perspectives but mine was gleaned from science and logic and

No. A fair argument could be made for it but the simple fact is that there are caves to great depth on both sides of the Nile all the way to Aswan. There are at least three caves or fissures associated with G1 and two more with G2. There

Let's see. Orthodoxy holds that superstition made ancient people capable and strong and that the only way to understand the pyramids is to study them with our backs turned to them. Compared to this little green men from Alpha Centauri using high tech angels to build pyramids seems like a breath of fresh air. Perhaps orthodoxy needs to heal thyself.

I believe the squiggle that looks like a vertical snake represents "water" and everything known about it. It is the earliest form understood; a river. This symbol morphed into the Egyptian word "^^^" which means water.

I'm guessing the 6 dots mean "planet". More accurately they represent everything known about the planets and their paths. They are represented this way because it represents retrograde motion of Mars which gave them the secret to the difference between stars and planets. From;
