Key sentence from the last link. "a time span of 10-15 years was misleading in the context of climate change, which is measured over decades and centuries." They are exactly right. Anything less than a 30 year period is not climate. It's a weather pattern.
@nxnn Thanks. Marijuana can be regulated more like tobacco AND alcohol. Just as people aren't smoking cigarettes in baseball games, they will not be allowed to smoke pot. i.e. second hand smoke. But, I am perfectly fine with selling it in gas stations just as we do cigarettes.
@GNAP It's my opinion that we have that in our schools now. An interesting thing about religion is that it is so personal that it can exist inside one's own brain. No one can take away freedom of religion from another. No person has the power to do that.
@Thoughtologist I don't see how you don't understand that your fairy-tale instances are equally rediculous to any of the ones @EMotter has suggested. You make up a crazy story and then think it speaks to your point, and it doesn't.
The jump in features from the Galaxy S3 to S4 does look like a greater positive change than the last 3 iPhone releases combined... But, I am a sucker for iOS's stability. I'm undecided but I wanted to comment. ;)
@nxnn you are right about similarities in everyone's lives, but the parallels in Jesus' story and other gods before him are pretty convincing... Born of a virgin, 12 disciples, walked on water, crucified... It just looks like a story borrowed from times and cultures before...
Across the world to check it out. Also, stories took longer to travel and once you succeed in getting the first generation to believe in him, the next follow suit. People want to believe in a god, in my opinion.
Sorry, everyone. I don't get on very often. I think the difference between trying to perpetuate a myth back then compared to today is the fact that the world is much more connected now. If we were to hear of a god such as Jesus in today's world, we would simply need to fly...
There is a new historical theory that contains evidence that the entire story of Jesus Christ was a complete fabrication of 1st century Roman Aristocrats. They claim Romans developed the story to gain political control over a rising Jewish citizenry.
Every bit of research I have done regarding veganism shows that it is an extremely healthy lifestyle. Also, whether you eat animals or not, you should understand that Americans eat way to many of them. Hence the reason our population is made up of a bunch of fatties.
@BigFish@Tom This is a function of technology, not economics. Wendy's, and the rest of them, would have replaced $8.50/hour workers soon enough. Futurism is going to make all laborers obsolete. With this progression, a different social structure will be the only option.
