could well be,

Though the problem is, if like the sumarians were just really really clever, then fair enough, but why would they put it stone that "the gods" gave them all this information.

Maybe they thought that ideas they had were ideas given to them from god. People then not understanding they have their own freedom of thought. That could explain god also, but like discribing our solar system and solar events 100's of years in advance, just does not add up. You are than back to "god" who gave them this information.

God is the missing link, we just can't go from being cave men to documenting our solar system. like I said before, we only found pluto in our solar system about 150years ago. Even if they were really really clever, how did they end up that way from being cave men ? does not add up. Isn't there a supposed missing gap just before man in the evolution chain ? again strange one. I suppose if a load of people looked up at the start long enough they could work out which planets our in our solar system ? Would be possible, though really way nextdoor to totally impossible. Though its probabably more probable than god giving them this information ?

What did I just say 8O ...... No doubt the bible bashers will be back on friday, they always manage to come out with something interesting.. They are willing to listen to my thoughts on it, they probably could accept god is a alien from planex X, all the facts add up..

I suppose we all have parts of a puzzle, could make them link up many ways by speculation over the missing parts.. I hope something does happen in 2012, then I can watch every crap themselves hehe 8)

God may be the missing link, but as far as we know, God just may be.

It's an hypothesis.

Spoke to the jehovah guys again today, they are going though the bible with me, just some key points about things already talked about. Seems they are a little closed minded to anything other than what is told in the bible.

Its interesting what it says in wikipedia...

Resurrection of 144,000 people who will live with god in paradise.

Worrying thing is, it says you have to be reborn to gain immortality, so god says to you "come here and will we kill you but promis to make you reborn", I mean whos gonna do that ?! Take the word of god that you will be reborn..... once your dead your dead! unless reborn means something else... I sure hope so!

Chris - you cannot be aware of your own non-existence, so from your own perspective, you will always exist. Others may witness your death, but you cannot. Even if you are 'dead' for billions of years or through trillions of big bangs and big crunches, you will not notice one iota of time passing, and whenever te conditions are right for you to exist again, you will, and it will be as though no time has passed. Not even the blink of an eye. Death is then more like an erasing of memory.

That is immortality. IMO. :)

After all, Iran is steadily developing Nuclear Weapons now, and they have plenty of targets to choose from, so it would seem we will all learn just how right or wrong the West has been about them soon enough.. :)
The good thing is, if the West is right it will be too late to do anything about it, that'll teach the pacifists eh... :lol:
AUGH, this kind of rubbish really burns me :x

man, If you belive all the neo-con-corporate-christian-jewish BS about Iran fostering NUKE's then you watch way to much of the TELE! It seems far to the contrary.
Iran, has NO way to nuke anybody, nor do they want to. Iran has been investigate time and time again, investigations have proven that Iran has a minimalistic Nuclear energy program, that is not even very hopeful of providing that, energy. Iran is still a developing country, and has no real motivation to start a thermo nuclear war. Corporate Media, has obviously owned out.

Iranians are peacefull people, who don't want to start wars.
Stop propagating the hate speech man.

keep it Atari, and I think you will be fine.

the Mayan calender does not end, it cycles. That is the most important thing to consider.

God is everything.. so it is already here on Earth.

Yawn.... of course all the evil in the world must be imaginary America is the real menace yadda yadda bla bla...
Well, I sort of (or maybe not in writing but in my mind) implied in the first place that if you are right or wrong it won't matter to me for very long since I live in and near some targets and THAT WAS IT. Please take note of what I am thinking in the future, thanks.
And I don't recall actually stating that I believe that Iran was capable or had the inclination to kill people, even though they so obviously do, as does any Country.
And I didn't read this in any newspaper as I don't need right wing propaganda to arrive at this dubious conclusion, the bloke down the pub is my reliable source of information.

See this is why you lefties are so full of it, you just slated Christianity and Judaism without batting an eyelid, then went on to defend what is undoubtedly one of the most oppressive regimes on the planet, there are many normal unbiased people who will find that very offensive and "hateful" which it is.
Anyway, it is not the Iranian people that are running the Country at the end of the day, and yeah suuure they are free to express their true feelings without fear of being stoned to death or beheaded, and God help them if they even say the wrong thing about their Prophet....
That is the main distinction between the free world and the nation of Islam you see, we have something called free speech, well, we do as long as it doesn't upset any members of the aforementioned world that is...
In fact, I would expect that this post would at least get me a good flogging in some Countries. :|
486 wrote:keep it Atari, and I think you will be fine.
This topic is not about atari mate, it is not even about politics, so thanks for bringing up a favourite topic of discussion of mine :wink:
In my opinion, the biggest evil in the world is left-wing propaganda, this is what I hate, and you are living in a fantasy world if you think that those nice peaceful people you refer to won't destroy everything if they can't have things their way. :|
So I will be "fine" as soon as people can speak their mind about real issues without left wing fascists trying to stop them.

I do hope you are right about Iran though 486, although it would be nice for me to be able to say "told you so" here in the near future when world war 3 begins :)

And I do not apologize for anything I have written here as 486 has touched a nerve with his lilly-livered-liberal twoddle, and I will gladly respond to any further claptrap that anyone has to add to 486's.

So anyway, like I said (or thought), IF Iran develop nuclear weapons and IF they decide to use them against say.... hmm that's a tough one.... lets say Israel (for the sake of argument) then that COULD trigger the Armageddon and hence the "world will end" :)

this website http://www.jupitersdance.com/ is really well put together, and has some interesting information that relates to sun spot activity, positioning of Jupiter and the other planets and Twenty Twelve.

Some of you may also find this of interest: http://www.halexandria.org/dward466.htm

Funnily enough I exist in one place and don't exist in at least one other place I could think of, so this theory at least has some substance :|

:oops:

Yeah fair point RG, I just re-read what I had posted and realised how stupid it came accross.

I was watching a thing on Horizon or BBC4 about Quantum Physics the other week and it was on about a Cat in a box being dead in one parallel universe & alive in another dependent on the state of the other items in the box.

So I suppose exist & don't exist in the same place/same time in a different plane would have described that a bit better assuming the other items in the box were of a volatile nature and likely to cause the cat to cease to exist :-)

Heck I struggle with Algebra, you can't expect a mortal like me to understand Quasars and the like, good to watch these programs on telly though!

Damn... if it's possible to exist (1) and not exist (0) at the same time, then 1 * 0 = 0 means we don't exist. NONE OF US :(

And if we don't exist (0), do we exist? (1) = 0/1 = Infinity. Therefore the question is infinitely pointless :P

I don't understand this. But, 0/1 = 0 (no Infinity).

Oh! maybe you meant that:

Code: Select all

   we exist           1
---------------  =  -----  =  Infinity.
 we don't exist        0
Right! :P :P :P

He will still be staying at his mansion, because he already have billions stashed away.... so what if M$ collapse, it cannot touch him.
Only his idiotic partner.... and that's only his pride.
