Yes we all do good on a daily basis. But when you give it to people you dont know , how to you know it gets to them? Is it not better to give to those who you know need it each day. How about a soup kitchen , that feed those who need it? I am all for all these, but sometimes ,someone right beside you may need a hand, and you may fail to give one. Should we not start and fix , at home then move to other areas of the world? Maybe I am wrong in my thinking, but I am started in my area.

The earliest crosses were equilateral and recognized as symbols of the 4 cardinal points and/or 4 elements.
Enclosed in a circle, it was the Solar Cross which predates Christianity.

The Christians have taken a symbol which represented the World and perverted it into a symbol for suffering.

It's sad that they see this amazing physical experience as onerous and only a means to an end (imaginary though it is).

Alot is put into several symbols. Yes the cross is one , for us who chose to follow it. Just like the Beer sign is for a dad, who might drink a little to much and wreck on the way home , and hurt someone , or go home and beat on his wife and kids. Just as the xxx sign is for the husband who is addicted to porn, and spends his last dime on someone , while is family is at home starving. It is all in how you use it , and take it into your own view. There is bad and good in everything , it is just how you chose to uphold it.
Yes and Amen

So you're saying we ARE supposed to judge people ?
Yes!
Righteously!
(1) If you had a history of thievory, and lying...
I would judge you unworthy of working for me!
(2) If you were wearing an eminem, or ICP T-shirt...
You'd be unworthy to date my daughter!
We make judgements everyday, for all sorts of things!
The Bible says to forget the sacrifices, God wants
Justice, Judgement, and Mercy (paraphrasing)
That's why people like Sandusky go to Jail!
God setup the Judging system Long ago!
What I cannot do, is judge who's going to hell...
Because I deserve hell, and recieved God's Grace!

You know what it is, He has heard on the news that we can't date the stones at the megalithic sites or at archaeological digs to know when they were built... The general popular science stuff talked about on TV... He didn't understand that did not mean we could not date rocks...
So for his edification ... Yes we can date rock in several ways... We cannot date (But we are getting close) date when the rock was cut and used as a building material but we can date when it was formed, how it was formed, the pressures it was formed under and what it was formed from...
Carbon Dating only dates back about 50,000 years but there are Dozens of other methods that can date back billions of years... Heres a partial short list ..
Radiocarbon dating
Fission track dating
Ionium-thorium dating
Isochron dating
Uranium-lead dating
Uranium-thorium dating
Uranium-uranium dating
Rhenium-osmium dating
Rubidium-strontium dating
Samarium-neodymium dating
Isotopic signature
Dendrochronology
Thermoluminescence dating
Optically stimulated luminescence
Potassium-argon dating
Numismatics
Archaeomagnetic dating
Lead Corrosion Dating.
Amino acid dating
Obsidian hydration dating
Rehydroxylation dating
Varnish microlamination
Skeletochronology
So....
A rock, formed from a valcano made last year, and dates
20,000,000 years ago... bothers you not?
On a side note...
Romney picked Ryan...
You called that... didn't you?
Good work!

No one is claiming it was not a fish, but it was more than 'just' a fish. It was a fish that was evolving traits that were also like what is needed for land.
You have yet to show any evidence for any of your claims. I am guessing you read the claims from some creationist site.
Hahahaha!

My point is, just because it is on the tele, does not mean it is science or is true.
I absolutly agree with you!
I just thought it was funny that they used the same arguments against your dating methods that Discovery uses...
Another point... it does not have to be a show called Ancient Aliens to be Wrong!

Whut? Gosh Q, I didn't realize you subscribed to the Discovery Institute newsletters.

According to the NOAA State of the Climate, the planet is warming.
http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/
Satellite measurement of long wave emissions appears to confirm this, as well.
Some say that global temerature rise is due to human actions and others hold that it is part of a natural cycle - generally, these opinions hinge more on political leanings than objective analysis. Much of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" has been indicted as exaggeration, but exaggeration of evidence does not eradicate evidence, as opponents of the film contend. That these opponents that rebuke and minimalize the same empirical data are usually either ideologically or financially sympathetic to the industrial concerns who would be impacted by stopgaps such as "cap and trade" (a shell game, if you ask me) speaks volumes in itself.
Humans are the major cause of increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and we are adding 30 billion tons of CO2 per year. In 1700 the levels were 280 ppm, around 1900 they were 290. Currently, the CO2 ppm is just below 400, but it will quickly cross that mark and continue to rise - and it is estimated to reach 500 ppm by 2050. While it is true that CO2 is not the most efficient greenhouse mechanism, a 30+% increase in a century - to unprecedented levels - is nothing to scoff at.
It should be noted that while CO2 is a greenhouse gas, it is not the only chemical that impacts the phenomenon. Carbon particles, CO, CH4, O3, H2O vapor, CFC-11 and CFC-12 are others that either directly or indirectly influence re-radiation of long wavelengths to space.
