Incorrect on most counts.
Your Math, Physics and Chem suck but so does your English.
Here is the list of questions:
CHOOSE THE CORRECT VERB FORM GIVING REASONS:
1) Gold as well as silver is/are expensive.
2) Bread and butter is/are eaten at breakfast.
3) The news is/are being read on TV.
4) Jack with his dog is/are walking in the garden.
5) Either the boys or the girl is/are crying.
ANSWERS WITH EXPLANATIONS:
1) The subjects joined by the conjunctional phrase "as well as" is taken in the singular and so the correct verb form would be IS:
Gold as well as silver is expensive.
2) Bread and butter form a single subject (one without the other is incomplete) and so a singular subject takes a singular verb. The correct verb would be IS:
Bread and butter is eaten at breakfast.
3) Here, news is taken to mean one news capsule and so the subject is singular and the accompanying verb will also be singular (IS).
The news is being read on TV.
4) Jack with his dog is taken as a singular subject and so the singular subject would take a singular verb which would be IS.
On the other hand, if the sentence were to include Jack and his dog...then the subject would be plural - Jack and dog - and as such the verb would be plural as ARE:
Jack with his dog is walking in the garden.
5) When a sentence includes either/or there has to exist 2 subjects but the verb form would depend on the subject next to the second conjunction or. In the given sentence, the second subject girl next to or is singular and so even though the first subject in the same sentence which is boys is plural yet the verb would be singular (since the second subject girl is singular and lies next to the second conjunction or).
Either the boys or the girl is crying.
On the other hand,
If the second subject were to be plural - "girls" - then the verb would take a plural form:
Either the boy or the girls are crying.
thanks for clearing that up. splended

QM vacuum is "nothing" since in it there're no real particles, no space, no time, no laws of physics (as we know them in 4-dimensional space-time which is our universe). This qm "nothing" is a concentrate of em waves and virtual particles in a state of.

Nondualism is the exclusive preserve of the highest intellectuals in a mental way and the rarest of individuals experience some degree or the fullest nondualism via the union in conscious-energy of the subject with the object.

Yeah, those wacky Gods are a real hoot!
But seriously, it is like any good parent, the object is to make the kids able to stand on their own. Hence the rise in atheism, as humans outgrow the need for Divine handholding.
Maybe the same can happen with the religion called government.

People who form the government can be dishonest. Government, at the national level, is administrators using infrastructure and/or laws to run a nation. So, some form of governing body has always existed and will always exist. Wishful thinking cannot do away with the need for government.

Religion has steadily been destroyed by advances in quantum physics, cosmology, genetics, evolution, neuroscience and noetic science/mind-matter studies. What's left for religion, now? Nothing, except blind faith and fanaticism! ROFL.

ROFL.
Yes, cattle class pretty much sums up the experience. However, it is still better than driving, and for that, I appreciate it, moo or no moo.

Welcome back,(papa).

I missed you.

Hope you had a nice hunting trip - how many birds/animals/worms/insects/re ptiles did you shoot?

Did you "hunt" handsome young boys as well?(smiles)

Yesterday, during a medical checkup, your name spontaneously arose in my mind and I used that as a support to deflect attention from the painful injections and yes I barely felt any discomfort...

In the past, I would think of my loving Mom during times of difficulty and then later it was that evil sorcerer. Yesterday, it was you. Thank you.

That's ok.

Now that you're back, relax and move ahead instead of holding on to grudges and feeling inferior.

BTW, your close online friend Liam the dunce whose son is born mentally challenged is back posting rubbish as usual.

LEAVING INDIA FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT

Due to ill-health - recurring difficulty in breathing, trembling nerves, fevers, pain in chest and irregular heart beats - I may soon be going abroad for medical treatment if the doctors here insist. One of my doctors mentioned it yesterday. I would like the treatment to be completed in Mumbai where we have fine medial specialists. But, one of my doctors doesn't want to take a risk and mentioned that I had better seek medical treatment abroad and he said that I should seek help fast to prevent further deterioration in my condition.

I know that sorcerer is targeting me and I saw a dreadful vision of him harshly dealing with me 3 days ago.

I have been suffering from bad health and worse ever since I left him. I feel he's going to finish me off. Let me wait and see what happens.

For now I am under medication and may soon leave India for medical treatment if the doctors insist. But, can occult attacks on me be cured by medicines/surgery? I doubt it.

Nutty extremists exist in every religion. YOU, above all, should understand that.
And let's not forget extreme behavior by Christians that was once considered acceptable....
- Crusades against Muslims, PAgans, Heretics, etc...
- Pogroms against Jews
- Spanish Inquisition
- etc,...
Every religion has blood on their hands, yours included.
1.Response is appreciated.

2.You tend to go back to HUNDREDS of years and at the same time you sidestep the here and NOW.

My examples are ALL about OUR time and they are from LEADERS of Judaism. Meditate on the words.

Rabbi--Ovadia Yosef’s words follow. Tell me about him. Who is he?

A. Goyim [non-Jews] were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.”

B.“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat.” From Haaretz

C. On Hurricane Katrina:
“He (Bush) perpetrated the expulsion (of Jews from Gaza). Now everyone is mad at him. This is his punishment for what he did to Gush Katif, and everyone else who did as he told them, their time will come, too,”

According to his description on wiki, he sounds like another fruitcase, akin to the Christian Pat Robertson (and many like him), that make similarly nutty claims.
BTW - regarding his comments about gentiles...
The American Jewish Committee condemned Yosef's remarks, stating that "Rabbi Yosef’s remarks – suggesting outrageously that Jewish scripture asserts non-Jews exist to serve Jews – are abhorrent and an offense to human dignity and human equality [...] Judaism first taught the world that all individuals are created in the divine image, which helped form the basis of our moral code. A rabbi should be the first, not the last, to reflect that bedrock teaching of our tradition." [40] The remark was also condemned by the Anti-Defamation League.[41]

You, Hugh, should know that as an Atheist, I'm no fan of ANY religion. However, fair is fair and you should know better than to judge an entire religion based on the ramblings of a few loud-mouthed extremists. Show me that the majority of ALL Rabbis believe his words, then we have something to talk about.
Who is the man? What sect of Judaism was he the HEAD of? Tell me about the scope of his influence and that of his sect. Explain the quotes below and expand on them by way of more information.

Hint:" Ovadia Yosef, born as Ovadia Yosef or Abdullah Youssef in his native language, is the former Sephardi CHIEF Rabbi of ISRAEL, a recognised Talmudic scholar and foremost halakhic authority"

"He CURRENTLY serves as the spiritual leader of the Shas political party in the Israeli PALIAMENT"

Finally, when you speak of the FEW you need to consider their SPHERE of INFLUENCE on the MANY.
