The video so far as I have watched has not explained how ancient civilizations could have viewed some of these remote universes (that they overlaid ancient symbols on) without modern technology
But other than that...I don't find it all that surprising that plasma and magnetic fields could play a significant role in the formation of the universe, so why do I get a serious Zeitgeist feel from this? Is it just the sun god stuff or there something else "exotic" about this that I am missing?
Daniel, I watched the first 5 minutes or so and then went on a search of the film makers. Are they anti- or pro- science? or god? If there is a preference, it will surely show up soon ... except I get caught very easily by fallacies, and the Creationists are very clever at drawing one in. I don't want to know your perception just yet, but I do want to alert you to my questions. On with the film ...
Daniel, my speakers do poorly, and in this moment I can not understand what these people want to say. But, my site has the answer to your question: http://aeris.host56.com/simple.html
First, it was possible for only some people from the elites of ancient civilizations.
Second, they had to use very high technology.
There is a fundamental difference between "modern" and "high" technology.
(The point is that the today history attributed to high technology toward modern times only.)
I had a real problem with the part where they claimed the ancient sky was different: "...planets are charged bodies in space, and they have not always moved on their present orbits. Only a few thousand years ago our ancestors lived beneath an alien sky, as planets close to Earth loomed huge above them."
I also recall a part where they talk about smashing a probe into an asteroid or something and it giving off a huge electrical field. That all sounds like bunk.
Well in any case I love looking at pictures of the universe so it wasn't all a loss =) (closing thread)
There is a video of the Pope's 'exorcism' caught on film. The man isn't demon possessed, there are likely no 'real' demons. He's just delusional and doesn't want to accept personal responsiblity for his own behavior for his own dysfunctional life.
There is an ad that reads ' Do you support 'traditional' marriage? Vote Now"! .
No, I don't support 'traditional' marriage because there is no such thing. I support heterosexual and same-sex couples marry each other legally , yes. 'Traditional' marriage promoters largely do not believe that heterosexual women are co-equal to their husbands. Their only purpose in 'traditional' marriage is to sexually satisfy their husbands if they can and raise children and do all…
i've got no problem with everyone saying "merry christmas" on christmas day. however, they've turned it into an entire holiday season where it lasts a month or more. in those situations it should be perfectly acceptable to say "happy holidays" or call it a…
I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
THAT was my sister, understand? She was a beautiful, life-loving, potty-mouthed…
