    You can walk into any book store, and find books that are more impressive than the bible in just about every subject, with a lot more insight, and accuracy.

    There is nothing impressive about the bible. It's exactly what you would expect from ancient ignorant people who had very limited knowledge about the world around them.

    astronomy is an exact science, astrology is not, Wt made reference to 10 as an earthly perfection number, so how about numerology of the first known heavenly body to carry life? (no, not Eve), -- terra. try

    It is 10s for the Earth all the way. orbit diameter 10 000 light seconds.

    10 in the Bode "law" 10 water meters of atmospheric pressure.

    Cofty, you're too damn reasonable.

    Stop it, now. Everybody knows that the world needs more fairytales and fuzzy thinking.

    I did wonder myself. Apparently those into pseudoscience and fairy tales regard you as a force to be reckoned with.

    This might be impressive if a "second" were anything other than an arbitrary measure of time.

    Religions are full of ideas from primitive peoples trying to explain things that are hard to understand.

    Some of us have left behind myths and superstition; others apparently like living in the dark ages.

    Personally, I prefer the discovered truths that come from a scientific, rational approach to attempting to understand life, the universe and everything (however tentative that knowledge may sometimes be) to the "revealed truths" of religion with their insistence on absolute inerrancy and unquestioning belief.

    sir82 Now I'm all depressed - evidently I'm not considered "intellectual" enough to get a wacko IM.

    Over time I've come to actually appreciate being shunned by idiots. You know, bad association ...

    Unlike Van Gogh's story however, there were probably no incidents involving ears in Jesus's case, regardless of what the bible says.

    For what it's worth:

    Luke 22:50-51 New International Version (NIV)

    50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

    51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.

    Well the most important thing to remember is the WT said that Jehovah resides in the Pleiades star cluster.
