LOL.
you obviously have a lacking in math knowledge. here's a quickie lesson for you :
Circle :
A 3-dimensional object shaped like a ball.
Every point on the surface is the same distance from the center.
Sphere:
A 2-dimensional shape made by drawing a curve that is always the same distance from a center.
http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/circle....
to get the "sphere" definition, click on the "s" and then find the word "sphere" and click on it.
these deginitions are geared towards children, not college mathmatics or engineering students, so you shouldn't have any problems in understanding them.
if you do, let us know. i'm sure someone can help you.
I think you mixed them up. Circle is 2 dimensional, sphere is 3D

Catholics are rebellious little kids but as a mother we still love them no matter what, but the catholic traitors are a demons child, never to be loved, who their parents have to kick out of the house and live to die, and show them how evil they are, and crush them.
you do realize that historically, catholocism is the first christian denomination with all others splitting from that root?

i see not only did you fail math and science, but you also failed history.

Guess this means you're not going to invite me in the unlikely event some fool wants to marry your ugly old ass?

Oh well! Joisey sucks anyway, and I won't have to get vaccinations! Also it would be a real cheap-ass reception. Hot dogs and beans. No host bar serving warm Genesee draft if we're lucky.

Too funny!

Thought it was a joke.

I'm not screaming but I do believe equality means equal for everyone. And there's enough marriage to go around. Everyone can have one. If we allow poly licenses there won't be a shortage of same sex licenses silly!

You're so selfish! And kinda dumb.

P.S. Do your anti polygamy rant! "What about the children?!!" Don't say you never did, you and I know you did! Too funny!

Did you learn stuff from your mother without seeing it for yourself when the big door hit you eh? Don't try to know so much, you'll regret it later. Catholicism is only the first established religion.

Monogamy in the context of polygamy is indeed a joke... just like you.
Oh and another thing, come up with a better dodge. Moving the goalpost is SO juvenile.

Not even close to the first established religion, there are many that predate Christianity.

Granted most Christians today are Catholics, but historically it was not the first established religion

"b: a closed plane curve every point of which is equidistant from a fixed point within the curve"

Could be a sphere, or a circle, it could apply in both directions, making a complete sphere. Too wrong.

You sound like a hormonal little boy, the way you speak. So willing to speak about ideas you know nothing about. Very foolish. You must listen a lot to the nonsense of that teacher who keeps lying saying, "homosexuality is ok kids, don't worry, its cool to be gay".
