    Only to the moon? Don’t be scared, that silvery thread is elastic, you can go much much further.

    Monk, China is using the same strategy as Mexico vis-a-vis Russia. They are dispatching their (excess) young men en route Sibiria. It’s an illegal immigration, but due to large unpopulated areas and corruption prone authorities, the invasion is unimpeded. China would love to sucker Russia into a conflict with Ukraina or any of the former Soviet Republics, the larger the better. China would lay in wait and the moment they would perceive weakness, they’d move north, utilizing their 5th column.

    Soy, why would China destabilize Canada… and how? Canada does not have a large debt with China. Look south. China has a biiig leverage over US. Of course it is a bit two way street, China’s prosperity is dependent on US market.

    China’s strategic aim lies elsewhere than in North America. Look south and north of China, beside the obvious target — Taiwan.

    It slowly assembled?

    It’s nothing but assumption. Point in case is the asteroid belt. There was a collision some while ago that was detected by astronomers.The result was not an assembly, but smithereens. shooting rapidly whichever way. The belt seems to be very old, nearly as old as our solar system, a remnant of a once-planet that got hit by another body, approx. 3.5 billion ya. Why on earth another planet not formed already, pray tell? That should be enough time to accrete.

    Planets are formed in a blink of an eye, cosmically speaking. In a matter of hours. There will come a day, in the next 20 years, when it will be seen by our ever precise tools. At first, the observers will rationalize it out as something else, an epicycle of sorts, and give to it some fairy tale name. When it will be seen for the second time, all our present concepts about universe will be upturned. If you are young enough to be alive by then, remember me, that I told you so.

    Well, well, I think we have a couple of special snowflakes here.

    On the other hand, my woman thinks I am her god. Not the God, her god. Her universe is centered round me. I don’t feel like correcting her view. Though unscientific, for all practical purposes as she is concerned, it’s true. She is also stunningly beautiful, but has some odd insecurity about her looks. I don’t intend to correct her perception of herself either. It works very well for our ying/yang dynamics.

    Actually, that would be pretty easy when US economy drops like a stone. In not too distant future.

  • February 2, 2014 at 6:29am

    LOL, Monk. Proglodyte! Me like!

  • February 2, 2014 at 6:01am

    Yeah. something like freudian slip. Sometimes these slips create a fitting neologism. I agree with geeman.

    [It's] Not even a grammar issue to substitute a word with a completely different meaning. I don’t know what to call it. How can a writer, let alone an EDITOR, be so DUMB? Dumb and Dumber.
    Mind boggles. I started learning English when I was 30, never went to school to learn it, and even at the beginning of learning, I wouldn’t make such a mistake, I’d be embarrassed for weeks if I did.

    As for the neanderthal inheritance, it’s a completely different methodology. What is the exact match is discarded (e.g. that makes both HHS and HNS humans), what is only compared is what is specific for HHS and NHS,

  • January 30, 2014 at 7:57pm

    Methodology.The 98% figure for chimps was derived at the time when most of our DNA was considered “junk”. Only protein coding genes were considered. And how it would look considering evolutionary pre-requisites.

    But if you compare human and chimp genome, on all levels, the current figure is 92%, and declining as we get further in decrypting the genomes secrets, It would not be a surprise if that particular comparison would settle on a figure in mid-80s.

    However, if you compare specific genetic segments, like cytochrome c, chimps and horse and lamprey are equidistan from humans.

    tRNA S defines your kind. For one-cellular biota, it is tRNA16S, for multi-cellular it is tRNA18s. There can’t be any confusion that humans are not apes. They are marked in different spots. Every kind has it’s own slot. There is a limited amount of slots. one would have to encode another tRNA S (like 20S), to expand the list of possible kinds, but it is not that simple, because one would have to recode the whole genome accordingly, else you get non-viable organism.

    There are a few exceptions, cheetah, generally considered a cat, is marked as a cat and dog. That shouldn’t be, so I have a tentative hypothesis that someone knew what to do and was playful and creative–a very good geneticist, Another is baboon, which is both monkey and ape.It has also some specific genes that are closer to human than chimp is. Again, I suspect a good gene fiddler.

    Gonzo, not mentioning what happened to his skull. There’s quite a bit more to it than just a “ritual object”.

  • October 31, 2013 at 9:06pm

    No. You are wrong.

    First, he’ll get a chance to meet God, as everyone else. What would be the result of that encounter is a different story, but again, it is not what you think.

    Second, you tone indicates that you don’t understand Christ. You think that your membership in church is some kind of a free ticket. It ain’t so.

  • October 31, 2013 at 8:29pm

    What does that mean, “strip of arrogance”?

    It is not taken away, rather discarded by you. It has also some further meaning in thereafter. If you want to know, you would follow the path to know.

    ***

    As for fear of death… Many NDErs lost it entirely–because there is nothing to fear, it’s just a transition. They also understand the point of being alive herein, in their allotted time.

    @Anconinn
    “Belief in the afterlife was a cheap way to collect money from the poor and ha e to deliver nothing in return”

    False. The belief in afterlife is as old as mankind, and it has nothing to do with money collection. Granted, there are always people willing to turn belief into money collection, most recent example is the religion of AGW (or climate change as the warming part became elusive).

    “… god. He is not going to care If you went to church”

    True.

    ” or loved Jesus”

    False. If you loved Jesus (let him into your heart, e.g. into your most inner core of being) you’d know what difference it makes.

    “All that matters is what you did”

    True, to a point. People have great misconceptions about thereafter. The Last Judgment is not loving God judging you. He is simply providing you with tools for you to be your own judge. And, because in his presence, there can be no deception, nor there would be a point to it, there is no harsher judge than yourself. Nor the time in there after is comparable to our concept of past/present/future. There is just present and the past or future are just forms of point of view, a focus of direction. That means the Last Judgment is transpiring outside of our frame of time reference. Always or in one instant, it is just a matter of focus.

    How does this related to Jesus? Loving Jesus (letting him in, simply by asking–but it has to be genuine sentiment) strips you of your arrogance. That in itself is a great reward.

    Two words: Mt. Rainier.

    Another type of “devil” is often called “demons”. I’ll expand on this later as I have to work for living, momentarily.

  • October 31, 2013 at 6:13pm

    There are different kinds of “devils”.

    One, for instance, is actually an organism, a parasite. It is not classified as of yet. Its spores are about 1.5 millimeter in diameter, it is ovoid shape, somewhat irregular, pinkish or greenish hue with darker spots. It usually enters the host through mouth, breathed in. It burrows through back throat (feels like tonsilitis) into the brain cavity and attaches itself to the limbic system. It produces chemicals that result in an “unhappy state” and it feeds on byproducts. Of course, if one is unhappy (say in a state of constant envy), the parasite would have to do less work to generate the most suitable environment.

    People infected usually go through a change of personality, become paranoid, hostile, interpreting innocuous interactions as unfriendly acts and in the severe cases, homicidal.

    The antidote is to be happy. Not the fake happiness attached to material interactions/possessions, but a true happiness that is based on selfish love (can be also spiritual love), The crit is then unhappy and exits usually by what appears to by an infected area behind an ear.

    This critter was known intuitively for ages and there is even a defense mechanism that developed as a preventative measure. You often see people stricken by grief or in shock automatically putting their palm over the mouth. The critter follows the predator-prey cycle and we are about to get serious infestation.

    Afraid? No. That’s what they want you to be.

    Repeat after me: “μολὼν λαβέ”
