music, Thanks for your reply, For me, the photos clearly show a bridge of material existing between the galaxy and the quasar-like object. As you say, if there is a connection between these anomalistically red-shifted objects, then the 'Big Bang Theory' is blown apart (and to my mind, so is the so-called 'Theory of Evolution' too.) As you know, in his books Halton Arp has recorded many other

Hi all, Unfortunately, now that Dr. Mario Livio is no longer with us at this time, I wonder could anyone else on this site offer a sensible solution to the question I asked ie (to Dr. Mario)? > "However, what then is your opinion as to the apparent "connection" that exists between the galaxy NGC 4319 (redshift z = 1,700 km s^-1) and its nearby quasar-like companion Markarian 2

Hi all, Whoever believes or whoever does not believe (at least according to Earthly standards), is not the point. Nobody knows the year, day, month, hour or even minutes/seconds when such events will occur. The truth as I see it is quite simple: Like it or not, such events WILL transpire. Therefore; Always be prepared! This is to say, Love one another, as you would Love yourself. Cheers

Dear Dr. Livio, Thanks again for your answers. One more question before you go. You wrote: > "No. I did not imply any "connections." Understood. However, what then is your opinion as to the apparent "connection" that exists between the galaxy NGC 4319 (redshift z = 1,700 km s^-1) and its nearby quasar-like companion Markarian 205 (redshift z = 21,000 km s^-1)?

Hi all, Michael Hayes wrote (albeit to Greg), but also to the Forum as a whole: > "What do you personally think? Is there life elsewhere in the universe?"

Dear Peter, May I ask; No doubt for your own reasons and the resultant publication of a book, why have you really given up Jesus? How can your family as you say, still be "very close" as a result? You mention "Jesus Mysteries" Yes indeed...this is the true "mystery" But to my mind no "mystery" at all, because the entire Bible is the life history of Je

Dear John Grigsby, You wrote: > " I think before we look to the skies for the answer the real origins of the twin-serpent motif should be sought for in our very bodies." Interesting theory, but perhaps more simply put...should not we be looking at the comet "proto-Venus"... around 3,500 years ago (and for centuries before), or is this too much to comprehend? Diomede

Hi all, To answer the question as to the many similarities of various peoples around the world, maybe there was recently a singular landmass that encompassed the entire earth. This landmass, call it Pangea, was populated by animals and human beings the whole world over. Then, a catastrophe occurred causing the splitting apart of Pangea into essentially four separate continents and provided the

Thanks Deb. Your post was very enlightening. I shall endeavour to give "Pussy Cat" more time and space to become adjusted to its new surroundings. Just one thing though. I am presently having to coax the cat to go outside (in the back garden). If I go outside, the cat usually will follow. However, on its own (with the back door open), the cat just doesn't want to know. Really stra

Hi Shirley, Thanks for your interesting post and constructive thoughts. Sorry for the delay in replying. Recently and through no provocation at all on my part, this particular cat of mine has demonstrated or "shown" its affections (if I can call it that), by purring profusely, licking my face (and even my lips of occasion), just prior to my waking up some mornings.

Hi all, I don't know if this particular subject has been raised before (or indeed if I am on the right 'Board'), but I am very interested to know you views. In short, I have a bit of a problem. To briefly explain: As we are all mostly aware, domesticated Cats (Felis catus), generally speaking, are very independent animals, they do as they do and unlike a dog, one cannot take a Cat for a walk.

Hi Rob, Thanks for posting those interesting verses and your comments.

I can only conclude that what they wrote then is even more applicable today b
