WTH is the matter with you people anyway, geez.
You can't filter salt out of water, you have to evaporate the water or use electrophoresis which would make the water you pump to the farm lands cost about a buck a pint and require enough electricity to run a small country in the amounts required.... Desalination plants are very expensive to use to produce potable water and are used only where there is limited need for such expensive water..... There are only two choices to grow crops in arid lands... Pump in fresh water or let the land dry up and not farm it...

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

The bible defines marriage as male/female. So do all the other holy texts that mention marriage. There is no right to same sex marriage because there is no gender equality right in the US Constitution. All people are equal before the law, but not equal to one another. Natural law defines men and women different so marriage that combines both sexes may be integrated and gender diverse. Same sex marriage is a regression not justified by law, consideration of the greater good or consideration of the consequences.
I contend same sex marriage would harm homosexuals, singles, married couples and their children.
I contend that neither the Bible nor any other "holy text" is a ratified part or portion of the Constitution.
I contend that the Intent of the Constitution should to limit the powers of government over the citizens.
I contend that your advisement of the "Laws of Nature" do not exist in a lawful, legal or ratified form beyond your preacher's pulpit and "Bouvier's Law Dictionary."
I contend that you are homophobic.

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.

<quoted text>Q is against gay marriage because he is a republican. He must tow the party line. Note how he is perfectly logical in his arguments on religion, yet keeps failing to be logical when debating politics. That is what happens when someone tries to make his preconceived beliefs sound reasonable. This is why the god believers keep failing the logic test.
No he is Not a Republican ... He maintains no party affiliations.. and has views based on years of study and logical, rational positions on a host of subjects... He is always willing to have his views changed if presented evidence of sufficient nature and argument of sufficient rational to refute his positions...

Maybe if he is capable of making rational, logical argument on positions in agreement he may be correct on the issues in disagreement...

He has made it Clear he has No Preconceived Beliefs, he has stated ad nauseium he Never Believes.... He basis his views and positions on Evidence and Historical example.... Hence Faith, Belief are never a consideration in his positions....

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...

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...

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.

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
Shai maeri,Roger Patterson,and there are many,many more,
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.

But you of Course Miss the Point.... If in History we hear stories of a person and we look hard for any mention of them, any note of their existence During the Time Frame they are said to have lived we call it Myth... When we look for a couple of thousand year for evidence of someone and cannot find a mention from the time in question, cannot find a carving, pot, clay tablet, graffiti on a wall, mention is a letter home until 20 to 40 years After the time they are said to live we do not Just Believe the fellow was a tall white guy with a beard because someone 30 years later said so...

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...
