About surnames:People in most of the world didnt have last names back then. The name "Mary" means "of the sea" in latin. Maybe there is some hidden or lost meaning in all of that. Not true. Many people in the Bible had two or more names to distinguish families from one another. Jesus would have bee...

Why do you call him "the foriegn Pope"?

Is there a domestic American Pope ?

Or is that you think the Vatican is a threat to American soveriegnty?

Moses had no concept of the seperation of church and state.
That doesnt make him a bad person, nor indict his 10 commandments, but it completely disqualifies him from serving on the US surpreme court.

To head off this scandal in the making it could well be that "God" will suddenly.. and conveniently.."reveal" to the Pope that "yes its okay to let priests marry".. just in time for the church to clean house of all of the perves, and for the corporation to hire replacements who wont be scaried away...

Presumebly you mean "cold" fushion. Is cold fushino possible? If so what would the societal effects be? Both in nature, and in man made H-bombs nuclear fushion only occurs in conditions like those at the core of the Sun- humongous pressure-and humaongous ten million degree temperatures. It takes an ...

It aint that complicated. Catholics believe that the Pope is "infallible" on articles of faith . If he pronounces something that has to do with faith ( like "from now on Catholics have to eat jujube's on Thursdays") then that would be "infallible". But if you had an audience with the Pope and then p...

About surnames:People in most of the world didnt have last names back then. The ancient Romans seem to have invented the idea of first and last names, but in the dark ages the only Europeans who had both first and last names were Kings and nobles. Even in the early Renaissance it was unusual for com...

The last speech by Martin Luther King Jr. never looses its punch. Especially when you hear the actual audio-something about it. He reluctantly attended a function in which they demanded he speak. He flounders around for a momment - mumbling about longevity- then you sense the light bulb going off ab...

There's "Religulous" starring that comic who's name escapes right now - its quite good. If youre more into blasphemy than quality then you should watch Sarah Silverman's "Jesus is Magic" which is so blasphemous that it managed to offend even a not particularly religous viewer like me, but was only s...

There's "Religulous" starring Bill Maher - its quite good. I own a tape of "Dogma". Thought it was so-so. Maybe I should give it another try since the posters below recomend it so much.

Just out of curiosity... I'm now a secularist (specifically a secular theist/deist). Could you elaborate on this point? Sure. To me, secular theism means that there may be a God out there that led to the existence of this universe but that such a belief does not prevent one from being rational abou...

The whole point of being a reptile was the innovation of egg laying that enabled the offspring to develop in a hardshelled little container away from water. That plus having watertight skin on the adult animals. So the first reptiles were by definition already free of the water, and already layed m...

In order for a manned space flight to another solar system to be remotely practical would be if we can find a way to go faster than light without the time disruption. Otherwise, you go on a mission to a distant solar system and if you're traveling at 90% the speed of light you may get there within ...

I did well in an acting class.

Used to go on stage at comedy clubs for 'open mic' night and got laughs.

I spoofed the entire "we are the world" video once - the crowd loved it.

Havent done that lately.
