Actually, 18 degrees would be enough. ;)

I know, but I figured it would be easier for her to comprehend at 180... although, "upside-down" would have been even less confusing

Talking of symmetry, there's a fun discussion on BBC Radio 4's The Infinite Monkey Cage where the Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science describes the highest (non infinite) orders of symmetry found so far to Professor Brian Cox and Robin Ince.

It's the 9th of July 2012 .mp3

I highly recommend these programmes for anyone that likes science and has a sense of humour.

You're nothing but a bunch of sick twisted liars...

...claiming to be "rational" skeptics yet practicing a form of theism yourselves. Like this nutjob and his little demon cartoon figure and satanic pendant. Hypocrites all. You've lost all credibility here on Topix.

The ting about symbols is that they mean different things to different people and the meanings associated with them also change with time. Assuming one universal meaning for any symbol ignores this basic principle. The five pointed star has been used in many cultures with a huge range of meanings. You are wrong to insist that its use necessarily denotes witchcraft or satanism.

<quoted text>LOL! Yeah... one of the reason's I chose it was because I knew some fundie nut-bag would jumpt to the completely wrong conclusion! She/he/it isn't the first one.
We had a neighbor when I was growing up that tried telling my mom that "RUSH" was satanic music and that she should destroy anything that I had relating to their music. She said 'RUSH' stood for "Resides Under Satan's House". When my mom finally stopped laughing at her she told her to go home and worry about her own family!
Sheesh, some people, I swear.

I get a lot of idiot comments on my av also. It's just one of the guys from Slipknot. Boy, if your neighbor had seen Slipknot back then she probably would have keeled over. LOL

The swastika (&#21328;)(Sanskrit: &#2360;&#2381;&#23 57;&#2360;&#2381;& #2340;&#2367;&#2325;) is an equilateral cross with four arms bent at 90 degrees. The earliest archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization, Ancient India as well as Classical Antiquity. Swastikas have also been used in various other ancient civilizations around the world. It remains widely used in Indian religions, specifically in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, primarily as a tantric symbol to evoke shakti or the sacred symbol of auspiciousness. The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good" or "auspicious," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. The swastika literally means "to be good". Or another translation can be made: "swa" is "higher self", "asti" meaning "being", and "ka" as a suffix, so the translation can be interpreted as "being with higher self".

In East Asia, the swastika is a Chinese character, defined by Kangxi Dictionary, published in 1716, as "synonym of myriad, used mostly in Buddhist classic texts",[1] by extension, the word later evolved to represent eternity and Buddhism.

LOL! She went on a rampage when her son (couple of years younger than myslef) brought home tickets (and a poster) to see KISS! Man... that was like '78. A guy could go to a major concert with a date, put gas in the car, buy beer, food and a bag and maybe spend $40 for the night.

LOL! I was referring to the area on her forehead where the doctors went in to remove her fontal lobe... scars itch while they heal. I'm quite sure hers has been there long enough that the itch is merely a phantom phenomenon though

One of your buds says the swastika emblem on Nazi belts denotes Christianity. Talk about confused.

If you have to explain it in detail it isn't funny. Not that your explanation was funny. None of you twits have the wit it takes to be funny.

To clarify: you'd rather they use "Gott mit uns" emblems as proof of Nazi christianity?
