  1. Past hour
  2. Doing God's will.

    We must seek truth in all places...the best salad is a mixed one, with a little Italian dressing on it. What is next the argument will provide, God willing!
  3. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka's Health Minister confirmed it was 7 suicide bombers from the radical domestic Islamic group National Thowfeek Jamaath that carried out the bombings. He says he believes they had international ties. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2019/04/22/sri-lanka-bombings-national-thowfeek-jamaath-responsible-atttacks/3536784002/
  4. Oh goodness, I haven't seen this video in years.
  5. Doing God's will.

    There lies the truth. It's outside our brains. Saintly words those. The mere fact that we can speculate this concept, then it becomes apparent the possibility, and therefore the doubt as to our existence as our brains perceive it. When in doubt there is no rational science, nor any 100% assurances to the believers. Doubt makes the best scientists and the best believers.
  6. Gorillas pose for selfie with park ranger

    lol I was just going to say, they all look super bored. That might be the 10th try for a good selfie and the gorillas just annoyed at this point.
  7. Doing God's will.

    Yet among these "infinite" reasons to believe in god and jesus and eternal life, you are unable to enumerate a single one of them......lol. Quite the poster boy for the concept of "free will" there. I eventually reached the point where I see genuine free will as both a logical and physical impossibility. Yet even I find that a bit pitiful.
  8. Lost for 190 years, a three-volume manuscript blooming with vivid color drawings of Cuban flora has resurfaced in upstate New York. Nondescript marbled cardboard covers and a title page in cursive handwriting announce Specimens of the Plants & Fruits of the Island of Cuba by Mrs. A.K. Wollstonecraft. This simplicity belies the contents of the slim, well-worn volumes. Pages and pages contain 121 illustrated plates showing plants such as red cordia sebestena, deep purple Lagerstroemia, and white angel’s trumpet in consummate detail. Accompanying them are 220 pages of English-language descriptions relating historical facts, indigenous applications, poetry, and personal observations. Hewing faithfully to scientific conventions, the illustrations show vegetation, life cycles, and dissections of reproductive parts. Some pressed plant material is taped in. The author writes that she did not consult botanists or receive any help with her work. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2019/04/lost-book-cuban-botany-found-illustrations-women-in-stem/
  9. Strange creature captured crossing highway

    Your right..That totally slipped my mind, what little I have left.
  10. Doing God's will.

    The vocal chords, on their own, can make beautiful music too. Gregorian chants is probably what you are referring to, as chanting monks. Or something similar. Monks are believers that view God's will more seriously, as they try to follow and put into use the teachings of what they believe them to be by Jesus. Also by grouping and living in monasteries they reinforce those beliefs with each other. However, they too are mislead in their beliefs. For instance, God's will wills that man should multiply, Genesis 1: God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them; male and female he created them. 28God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” But the monks and the Catholic priesthood, and nuns too, hold on to celibacy, which is only a Pauline doctrine, and not one taught by Jesus. Therefore any man or woman who does not make an effort to multiply our specie is not following God's will. There are many other instances, but we will not criticize the monks because they are more faithful in many other respects than the Catholic clergy hierarchy, by a long shot, as the betting odds makers say at the race tracks.
  11. Is Handwashing As Important As They Say?

    Not sure where to screw that into. Got to be a big hole somewhere? This is getting all very technical.
  12. That is true, however there shouldn't be catastrophic failures this late in development. The capsule that was destroyed was the one that flew the uncrewed mission to the ISS last month. It was due to make another flight soon. It was the capsule that was supposed to prove that the abort system works. It's next mission was to simulate an abort from a Falcon 9 in flight. It was the very engines that were to be tested that exploded. The capsule was destroyed, if this happened with astronauts aboard they would have been killed. There is absolutely no way that the Crew Dragon can now make it's first crewed flight in July as planned. With Boeing's rival programme, the CST-100 Starliner as suffering delays NASA may have to go back to the Russians to buy more seats on Soyuz missions. There could also be political implications. The Russian space agency already has doubts about Crew Dragon. In order to maintain correct crew rotations Russian cosmonauts will need to launch on U.S. vehicles and vice versa. If the Russians refuse to launch their cosmonauts on SpaceX's craft it will have severe implications for the ISS.
  13. Ah but this isn't amateur video it's a traffic camera.
  14. Exactly. The thing would have been visible to the driver in the outer lane to the right of the frame and that there was no reaction is pretty implausible.
  15. Is Handwashing As Important As They Say?

    HOLD UP! No gloves?
  16. Only about 300 Visayan warty pigs (Sus cebifrons)—known for the males’ distinctive mohawks—exist in captivity; their wild population is unknown. Previously found throughout the lush rainforests of the Philippines’ six West Visayas islands, the critically endangered swine now roams small pockets of only two: Panay and Negros. Near-total deforestation for valuable hardwoods in the 1970s and ‘80s ravaged the West Visayas, slashing the species’ habitat to less than 4 percent of its original size on Negros Island and less than 8 percent on Panay. One of the world’s rarest pigs, the Visayan is close behind the Bawean warty pig and pygmy hog, whose numbers are also in the low hundreds. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2019/04/endangered-warty-pigs-mohawks-philippines/
  17. acute

    Alpacas everywhere!

  18. Deer whistles work and they are only a few bucks. That goes for you too @XenoFish
  19. Word Association from the Last Letter

    respect -> this "in this respect"
  20. Is Handwashing As Important As They Say?

    Send him up the shops then lol.
  21. Opening gambits in EU / UK exit negotiations;

    How many of them are from a dodgy background? lmao I dont think it would matter with MEPs but might get in the way of MPs. I notice there isn't a banned list of parties or groups as there is with UKIP.
  22. I'm just going by what it appears to be.
  23. Worldwide Walls

    Build the wall, and a major transit "point" is removed, forcing the smugglers and illegal immigrants to 'funnel' into tighter and tighter corridors. This seems very obvious to me ?
  24. Unsung Heroes of Science!

    She was my number two entry lol. Remarkable woman.
  25. Strange creature captured crossing highway

    I have too but it's unlikely for there to be no reaction at all even post near miss. It always scares the heck out of me.
