Reverse osmosis is being used to filter salt from water - but it is expensive compared to just sinking a well or tapping fresh surface water. In coastal regions, that is leading to salt water intrusion of the aquifers.
Ideally, spring melt waters could be stored and distributed.
Well I should have included that but it requires a high pressure gradient again requiring pumps to force flow and has limitations on pass through quantities but I don't consider it as filtering I guess because of the chemical conversions to strip heavy ions.. But good catch as most call it filtering, but not capable of producing the Billions of gals of fresh water needed or at a cost that could be afforded...

How about, marriage is not about anything except property and what 2, 3, 4 and a horse, people do in private that does not harm any one is (gross but) no one elses business?
Yes I have Considered that and have tossed it to the side as race baiting shinola.... So you are taking the View that the Federal Government should via Law sanction the concept of Marriage of an man and his goat.... As for Property we have Contract Law to cover it's transference...

There are many statues, mosaics and artist drawings of him done during the time of his life by people that wrote and spoke of him daily...
Jesus on the other hand during his supposed life, when we find writings of how the crops did, statues of people, graffiti telling where the local whore houses are and who was the best gladiator, We find not a mention, not a scribble on a wall, not a word until 20 years after he is said to have died and even that is a not a specific mention of the man..

You wrote the above quoted response in reference to this question from Known Fact wrote:
<quoted text>
Here is something else that is not original but no evolutionist can answer: Which came first the Chicken or the egg?
Quantummist agreed with your response. Ehich is not surprising,since most Evolutionists,agree with that theory,The egg came first,but a recent scientific experiment claims otherwise
"SCIENTISTS have cracked one of the world’s oldest riddles – which came first, the chicken or the egg?
A supercomputer gave the team from Sheffield and Warwick Universities the answer – the chicken
Read more: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features...
So,Science has now debunked the theory held by many Evolutionists that the Egg came before the chicken.In the process they spent many,many hours conducting an experiment that confirms what is taught in the Bible
Gen1;20 And God said,Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that HATH LIFE and the fowl that may fly above the Earth in the open firmament of Heaven.
But ,let's go further.Prior to 1982 unbelievers ridiculed the Biblical Fact that God created man from the dust in the Ground.
In 1982 Nasa confirmed that the elements found in earth are also found in the human body..
Of course,now,those who deny the existence of God,may try to develop another unsustainable theory,as to how the accuracy of these Biblical facts have nothing to do with God,and will continue to deny his existence
Egg came first,'eggsperts' agree

http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/science/05/26/ch...

A simple view is that at whatever point the threshold was crossed and the first chicken was hatched, it had to hatch from an egg. The type of bird that laid that egg, by definition, was on the other side of the threshold and therefore not a chicken—it may be viewed as a proto-chicken or ancestral chicken of some sort, from which a genetic variation or mutation occurred that resulted in the egg being laid containing the embryo of the first chicken. In this light the argument is settled and the egg had to have come first.

Marriage is about money and property, a legal situation. Nothing more

I don't understand how Creationists can make these types of nutty claims. "Factless theory"?? Have you ever cracked the spine of a biology book that didn't come from a church's printing press?
And you lead with a terrible false equivocation. Your characterization of the "debate" in science over this issue is just flatly WRONG. There are some people who have scientific credentials who reject evolution. True. Most of them are not biologists and do not have expertise in the field of biology. A few of them do. But to compare that gaggle of idiots to the f*cking OVERWHELMING community of disparate, professional scientists who not only accept the theory but are constantly challenging it with new information...that's a bold faced lie, dude.
Why are Creationist so dishonest?? It's infuriating.
You are infuriated because you are misinformed.
Here is a very very small list of Biologists who have refuted Evolution;Anderson, KevinArmstrong, HaroldAllan, JamesAnderson, KevinArmstrong, HaroldArndt,AlexanderAustin, StevenBarnes, ThomasBatten, DonBaumgardner, JohnBergman, JerryBoudreaux, EdwardByl, JohnCatchpoole, DavidChadwick, ArthurChaffin, EugeneChittick, DonaldCimbala, JohnClausen, BenCole, SidCook, MelvinCumming, KenCuozzo, JackDarrall,NancyArndt, AlexanderAustin, StevenBarnes, ThomasBatten, DonBaumgardner, JohnBergman, JerryBoudreaux, EdwardByl, JohnCatchpoole, DavidChadwick, ArthurChaffin, EugeneChittick, DonaldCimbala, JohnClausen, BenCole, SidCook, MelvinCumming, KenCuozzo, Jack Darrall, Nancy

What you call factless theory,is based on your opinion,based on the fact that you don't believe in God.
My faith is not based on factless theory, as I have posted previously,it is your opinion that is based on factless theory.
Since YOU have not tested GOD"S word,because to you,it's nonsense,then your opinion is null and void,...factless
Those of us who have tested God according to his Statement
" IF you DILIGENTLY seek me,you will find me" have found his word to be accurate and true.So we base our faith and belief on those facts,not on someones opinion on a subject that they are unable to understand.

Because YOU don't believe in God,then it is impossible for you to believe what God can accomplish.
Therefore when God says'If you diligently seek me,you will find me"
is nonsense to you.The problem is that because you don't believe,you are unwilling to put his word to the test,to determine it's validity.
I did not come to a Knowledge of God,simply by reading the bible,I came to a knowledge of God,by reading the Bible AND,most importantly,applying it's teachings,inorder to verify their validity. Thereby my belief and faith,
Faith and belief,is not something that can be transferred from one individual to another. I can only tell you as to how I came by my faith, God tells you how you may come to know him.
If you want to know about a God and think that you can devise a man made way in order to validate his existence,you will fail in your attempts.The natural is unable to explain that which is supernatural.
If one is unwilling to test the validity of God's word,then one is unqualified to pass judgement as to whether it is or isn't valid.
I base my beliefs and Faith on facts,tested them and found them to be true.
So,I do have a factual basis on which I base my conclusions,you,on the other hand,have not tested them,
So,on what basis,are you denying the basis for MY FAITH?

I disagree .. using your logic then we could have 20 men marry 10 women and all be eligible for one guys social security or Disabled Veterans benefit packages.... I have no issue with a Social Contract with specifications held under Contract and Property Law provisions on the book... But Marriage is more than that... It's a Individual Commitment on much more than Property Grounds and when it is redefined from it's historical societal definition then it becomes as you say Nothing but a Contract Law construct and devolves the society as a whole... Not my Belief, My Opinion based on evidence in past history of collapsed cultures...

Reporting on Emperor Nero's decision to blame the Christians for the fire that had destroyed Rome in A.D. 64, the Roman historian Tacitus wrote:
Nero fastened the guilt ... on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of ... Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome....5
What all can we learn from this ancient (and rather unsympathetic) reference to Jesus and the early Christians? Notice, first, that Tacitus reports Christians derived their name from a historical person called Christus (from the Latin), or Christ. He is said to have "suffered the extreme penalty," obviously alluding to the Roman method of execution known as crucifixion. This is said to have occurred during the reign of Tiberius and by the sentence of Pontius Pilatus. This confirms much of what the Gospels tell us about the death of Jesus.

Cornelius Tacitus(AD55-120) Roman historian: Most acclaimed works are the Annals and theHistories. The Annals cover the period from Augustus Caesar's death in AD14 to the death of the Emperor Nero in AD68, while the Historiesbegin after Nero's death and proceed to the reign of Domitian in AD96. In the Annals, Tacitus alludes to the death of Christ and to the existence of Christians at Rome. See Annals XV,44: But not all the relief that could come from man, not all the bounties that the prince could bestow nor all the atonements which could be presented to the gods, availed to relieve Nero from the infamy of being believed to have ordered the conflagration, the fire of Rome. Hence to suppress the rumor, he falsely charged with the guilt, and punished with most exquisite tortures, the persons commonly called Christians, who were hated for their enormities. Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius: but the pernicious superstition, repressed for a time, broke out again, not only through Judea, where the mischief originated, but through the city of Rome also." (The misspelling of Christ as "Christus" was a common error made by pagan writers). It is interesting that Pilate is not mentioned in any other pagan document which has survived. It is an irony of history that the only surviving reference to him in a pagan document mentions him because of the sentence of death he passed on Jesus the Messiah.
