    Hello, all. I'm turning to our community here for assistance. As most of you probably know by now, I suffered a nasty stroke. I was in the hospital and rehab for a damn long time. Now I'm waiting for a government program to find me a new, handicapped apartment. My previous apartment wasn't handicapped accessible, so it had to go. Now to my need for your help. While I was in the hospital the docs told my sister I probably would not live. My sister has power of attorney for me and she's been amazing. The only real beef I have with her is that she left my library behind when she cleaned out my old apartment. She left instructions to the building management to let the other tenants take what books they might want. My sister has no idea how valuable my library was, nor how advanced. I can't see regular people having much if any interest in my books. I looked up some of my favorite books at Amazon and quickly learned my library amounted to several thousand dollars, so it's not realistic for me to replace them. I recently got myself an Amazon Fire tablet and have been downloading inexpensive e-books. This has enabled me to return to my routine of nightly reading, and I'm rather liking that. But I've pretty much picked up all the Amazon e-books related to ancient Egypt and the Near East. My question to you folks is, where else might I look for e-books on the ancient Near East? I'd appreciate any help rendered. Thanks.

    Wow. 70% of Americans declare as "Christian", and they are worried about the other 30%????? Oh those poor, persecuted Christians! Whatever are they going to do? Depending on who you read, the percentage of "non-religious" is roughly, 1.6% ( of those totally lacking a belief in deities) of the total population. Leaving the other 27.4% or the American population as deistic, of some flavor or another, whether Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Pagan, Satanist, or even the FSM. Perhaps, the rise (ahem) of atheism is a sign that humans are outgrowing the need for superstitions? That, maybe, perhaps, we no longer need to look at the supernatural, to explain the natural workings of our world and universe?

    Oh, this is juicy. You realise that the Dems are only adhering to laws that the Republicans created in order to go after HRC, right? McConnell's scorched earth policy is coming back to bite him. It's not a violation of due process, because Republicans changed that process. Additionally, the Republicans are not 'the defence' and Congress isn't a court of law.

    El, I think you have unknowingly joined the "disinformation" club. To suggest that those creatures are baby owls is just ludacris. Just look at those hollow haunting eyes and spindly limbs. I cannot believe the guy filming didnt take proper precautions and wear his tin foil hat, those aliens clearly have him convinced that he is in no real danger being in the midst of "baby owls". I bet loading the video was his last action on this earth. Sayonara.

    Would that be Dunn's masterpiece "The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt" 1998? I don't have time to read it just now, so I'll share what I found on Amazon: Did a highly advanced civilization exist in prehistory? Is the Giza Pyramid a remnant of their technology? Then, what was the power source that fueled such a civilization? The technology of harmonic resonance, claims renowned master craftsman and engineer Christopher Dunn. In a brilliant piece of reverse engineering based on twenty years of research, Dunn reveals that the Great Pyramid of Giza was actually a large acoustical device! By its size and dimensions, this crystal edifice created a harmonic resonance with the Earth and converted Earth's vibrational energies to microwave radiation. The author shows how the pyramid's numerous chambers and passageways were positioned with the deliberate precision to maximize its acoustical qualities. This may be the same technology discovered by Nikola Tesla and the solution to our own clean energy needs. This is just silly. #1. The GP is not a crystal edifice - it's a pile of stones. It's a mixture of different materials used for their load-bearing properties, not their atomic configurations. The vast bulk of the pyramids is limestone which, being a sedimentary rock, does not have a crystalline structure. #2. Microwaves are electromagnetic radiation generated when electrons are suddenly decelerated, usually when striking a target. You cannot generate em radiation just by shaking a stone. #3. Even if #2 were possible you would have to shake the stone at a microwave frequency, between 300 MHz and 300 GHz. An object's resonant frequency is inversely proportional to its size - larger (pyramid-sized) objects have very low resonant frequencies. To resonate at the required frequencies would require nanometre-sized objects and even then - what good would this achieve? #4. There's no evidence whatsoever that Tesla built 400-foot-tall stone pyramids anywhere as part of his research. Someone would surely have noticed? etc. My physics background and degree allow me to declare that there is no principle here - Dunn's ideas are worthless. They don't work. They can't work. Never did, never will. Simply labelling a diagram of a pyramid with a handful of vaguely-scientific terms does not constitute proof. Let's remind ourselves what we're dealing with here: About the only thing missing is the dilithium crystals!

    All of them are. They are just a collective of like minded individuals typically following a head of their particular branch. Though modern religions such as Christianity are less a tradition cult and are more a cult of ego/mind. Then again, nearly any ideology can become/is cult like.

    "A sitting president can't be investigated for crimes." The mere fact that there is a possible Supreme Court Case arguing this is an embarrassment to America and a slap in the face of our Founding Fathers who were trying to avoid a monarchy.

    If you could pick one. What would it be? ********************************************** My son and I hanging out at home one afternoon. He's seven at the time. And without context or prompt, as is rather routine for me, I ask him some random seeming question. Me: Hey! If you could pick any superpower right now what would it be? Invisibility? Super Strength? Flight? Son: (pause) Me: ... Son: (more pause, then) I'd be able to make angry people feel love. Me: ... Wow... That's amazing. (sinks in more, hang my head in mock shame) Son: what? Me: Well... your power kind of puts mine to shame... Son: Why? What's yours? Me: ... Son: ... ? Me: ... *sigh* i'd be able to **** other people's pants...

    He evidently didn't try very hard did he ? Are you saying that those examples are better than his "proof" ? "Let's just say there is an adversary, there is a devil, there is a Satan. His whole job would be to try to convince the world that God doesn't exist. He's done an incredible job convincing people with the idea that we're just on a random speck in an infinite universe."

    You sure as heck aren't. 'Eidetic' was the claim. Hereabouts for an example, and after claiming the eidetic memory, he states, modestly: And then, from here: Indeed, quite a shame....... No immodesty or ego problem there.... BTW, amusingly, as I searched for the 'eidetic' references (there are several more), I noted that this isn't the first time that Mr Walker has fantasised, oh sorry, *experienced* mammals jumping around him... from that first link above, he states (and who would doubt him, after what has transpired here.. ): Yep. From that small splash of water on him, Mr Walker was (obviously) leaped over by a dolphin! One that he didn't actually see....... Golly gosh is all I can say.

    I'm curious. You seem to troll with the 'fake impeachment' thing quite a bit, but I've never see you add any substance to your thoughts. Why, exactly, do you think this is a fake impeachment? For any neutral, this isn't an subjective series of events. These things happened, they are illegal and were covered up. And now Trump is directing people to ignore their own government's subpoenas. Trump could be impeached for these things multiple times over. Any Democratic President, without a Fox equivalent, would be in Republican crosshairs for the same actions. So what about it, specifically, is fake?

    One dark night at sea in the middle of the Atlantic about 1930 hrs (before the watch changed at 2000 hrs), it was a fairly calm night with a little swell , I was walking along the deck from the Bridge to the aft accommodation , to exchange some books , when a figure all in black clothes passed me making no noise walking going towards the Bridge , I said hello but got no answer , as I carried on a voice said quite clearly , quick , get on the other side of the deck as a rogue wave is coming ,so I did and within seconds a huge wave exploded over the deck I had been walking on ,had I been there , I would certainly been knocked off my feet and maybe swept overboard . I reached the crew accommodation and asked if anyone was on deck going forward to relieve the watch and a sailor said "I'm going in 10 minutes but its too early yet ", when I said what had happened no one laughed , and 3 lads said that they had seen this figure before at night just before a change of watch. I was on that ship for 10 months between Rotterdam and Philadelphia and no one went on deck after dark unless it was absolutely necessary .

    We've had plenty of potentially interesting ancient Egypt threads, but inevitably cladking tries to hijack every such thread for the sake of his pet "theory." There is no potential for useful debate because cladking cannot offer realistic evidence to support his claims and does not even understand the workings of historical methodology or how to build and frame a working theory. I'll come down off my soapbox now.

    Hi Hankenhunter Yes for some and then there are those that use the system to avoid responsibility/excusability for just bad behavior. I knew a guy that pulled that BS on a job site because it was his dad's project so I just packed up my tools and left. the next day the project designer and his dad called me and I told him straight up I come from the other side of the tracks and when a guy flaps his gums like that he better be putting his fists up but the son was the kind of guy to push you and call the cops to tuning his guitar and I don't put up with that in my personal or professional life so he kept his son off site.
