Mountain look very spectacular from distance. Prostitutes look very beautiful when they make-up. War stories are very interesting. All these three things are interesting from distance.
I don't know much about God apart from the fact he is English.
why would he be English?I don't know much about God apart from the fact he is English.
I need your comments about CERN.
God couldn't possibly be English! He's doesn't have a form. Besides why would He be English and pick the Israelis as His people? That would kinda be ironic wouldn't it considering the way English people for ever have treated Jewish people no better than any other europeans have. It would be most cruel to my way of thinking. Also God must be Jewish because He did choses the Israelis and because Jesus came from Jewish ancestry as the Son of God! Why would God have chosen a mother for His son who wasn't of His own race? If in fact He even has a race to begin with? I'm not a very smart person of course so what do I know! I only have an *th grade education and have never amounted to nothin in my 44 years of life on this earth. I could even be called a backwards mountain girl from south eastern Tennessee.
I would venture to say that backwards mountain girls fro southeastern Tennessee probably have a better handle on reality than most Nobel Prize winners in Physics.
Somebody wanted to know about CERN. If you want to know whether they've found God yet, they haven't. What's amazing is that the European governments funding the project, to the tune that it has helped bankrupt their economies, should spend so much in pursuit of something they supposedly have already "proved" doesn't exist. The latest I heard, they finally got the beast up and running, after many a glitch; and recently announced that they have found some blips in their data that may be artifects of the machinery.
The whole essensce of Particle Physics is that if one throws enough money to them, the PP Pros will someday find the answers to questions that they themselves have proposed. They're like the scientist on the Levitating Island of Laputa in Gulliver's Travels, the one with one eye pointed upward and the other inward, who was striving to distill sunlight from cucumbers. He had had no success so far, but was convinced that in just two years (or thereabouts) he would have the answer.
For our Atheist friend here who believes that science is the answer to all things, let me say that
(1) I speak as a scientist, having an MS in Inorganic Chemistry, and
(2) Science, as currently defined, PRESUPPOSES that there is no God, because it restricts all descriptions of "reality" to what can be sensed. At the same time,
(3) Science itself acknowledges that the universe that we can sense is finite and shrinking. Yes, it is expanding; but space itself is expanding at a faster rate, so that galaxies that we can see today will disappear in the future as though they had never existed. Moreover,
(4) Because the universe is every day tending to a state of more and more entropy (i.e. disorder), it is preposterous to believe that it once consisted of nothing at all, which is to say, infinite entropy. That's the way the math works out: A universe of zero dimension and infinite mass, a physical absurdity. It's because of logically deduced facts such as this, that the Ivory Tower money-suckers are forever looking for "God particles" and such like, to set the math on its feet again.
(5) There is only one explanation of reality that does not require an economy-breaking national investment to verify, but makes perfect sense: Intelligent creation by, for want of a better candidate, "God". A God named "I Am" fits the bill perfectly. Money-suck Science can't accept this simple logic not because of lack of evidence, but because "science", as currently defined, dogmatically forbids its acceptance.
(6) I believe the latest explanation of the universe (it changes every few years), is that during the first several million years or so it went through a "Dark Age", wherein the gravitational pull of the partilcles (not atoms as we know them -- they had to come later) was so great, that even light couldn't excape. We therefore have no astronomical record of this era. Isnt't it rather amazing, then, that an ignorant sheepherder such as Moshe should have reported that in the beginning the world we live in was "formless and void", and that "darkness was upon the face of the deep"? Moses must have had access to a time machine, so he could consult with our present-day Nobel laureates.
So many questions. I could answer the above, because of my scientific credentials. The one about God being an Englishman is a little trickier, as I am not English. My mother-in-law was, though, so maybe that gives me cred. Even so, I can't answer your question. I fully expect to see my mother-in-law in Heaven, and I dare say God will have no trouble conversing with her. In fact, He may even take tea with her -- He's that sort of God. That said, He also seems able to communicate with others, such as the Jews. I don't know the answer: The matter is too great for me.
British comedy, To the Manor Born, Series 1 episode 1.
Audrey Forbes-Hamilton is forced to sell the manor which her family has lived in for 400 years. She is complaining at the auction that the only people with money seem to be arabs and would hate to see it torn down stone by stone and rebuilt in Abu Dhabi. While she is circulating she notices the local vicar who came to witness the end of an era. She asks "Why are you here vicar?"
He replies "Only to do the Lords Bidding"
"Good, at least he's English" she retorted.
So there you have it, QED
ya soglasin, on tochno ne by'l, inachi on zaby'l svoyo imya, svoyu mamu, i svoyu propogandu. No koneshno zavisit's skolko let on tam prozhil. Wait... are we talking about the "Palestinian" or God? LOL.
