"Stories throughout the english version of the bible, today's modern version, speak of many events that changed the coarse of humanity in our past. If we look at the stories in the bible as historical accounts of what actually took place, then we need to research the origins of these stories. The hebrew version of the bible, known as the Old Testament, which is a much older version than the english translation, is derived from the stories of the Sumerian Culture. When we trace the origins of the Old testament we can see that it is also based on previous translations from subsequent older languages throughout history.

The Sumerian culture, the first civilization to invent writing as a complete written language, recorded stories that have been preserved through the modern day biblical passages found in the Old and New testament. All of which speak of a time when man lived among their living gods here on earth. The Sumerians had 7 sacred tablets that explained our creation. These stories preserved in stone, are now told to us in the form of the english version, "7 days of creation"."

"The term "Planet X" refers to the search for another planet beyond Pluto through mainstream scientific efforts. The space probes sent out by NASA, mainly Voyager, and Pioneer, detected perturbations in the outer planets which suggested that there is still another planet, or heavenly body beyond Pluto that is affecting the orbits of the outer planets. Some of the latest public knowledge about this research done by NASA was conducted by Dr. Robert Harrington, who was the lead astronomer at NASA's Naval Observatory in Washington.(now deceased)
The Planet X searched for by astronomers during the last two or three decades is the planet that was believed to be affecting the orbit of Neptune - once the effects of Uranus on Neptune had been taken into account. Lowell and several other astronomers made extensive searches and calculations in the region of sky that they had calculated as the position for the missing planet.
Then, Sept 30, 1846 --- one week after the discovery of Neptune, Le Verrier declared that there may be still another unknown planet out there. On October 10, Neptune's large moon Triton was discovered, which yielded an easy way to accurately determine the mass of Neptune, which turned out to be 2% larger than expected from the perturbations upon Uranus. Finally, astronomer Tombaugh found Pluto in 1930 - albeit six degrees away from the calculated point of their search for another planet beyond Neptune at that time.
It was quickly realized that Pluto was too small to have the supposed gravitational effect on Neptune, and so the search went on beyond Pluto, for yet one more missing planet, that we know call Planet X."

From the latest on mercury we know it drifted in.

But i would have to read up, as to what the perturbations could be attributed to.

Yes.
Frankly we have it pretty much all figured out.
Just haven't gotten to the point of summarizing it all.
(It involves a lot of scrolling over various lines, for the peer-reviewed science publications)
But the more you know, the more questions you end up having.
So at a certain point you have to decide when enough is enough.
But if meteorites and other space goo can do it then why should earth-goo not be able to do it!
The latter would be the underying assumption of your theory.
So you would have to proof that there is something so particular about earth that life could not have formed.
Will you at lease agree that it is a process...?

Various cultures as a matter of fact.
A few days ago i tried to find more information on Luvian linguistics. And Assyrian..ah Nibiru.
I was frankly bombarded with niburu and planet x.
Niburu Babylonian astronomy as search term saved me.

There are actually entire cultures underlying the tanakh that are still alien to us.

Whether you had one or not, I would guess not.
Sorry Matt only the dumbest trolls get to own gay dinosaurs.
I forgot where I heard it, but if there WERE gay dinosaurs, one of them must have been named "Megasorass".

Even if that be the case...I fail to see how anyone could consider the process from goo, to complexity of life on earth as a un-intelligence process...it's completely irrational.
There's that supposition again of intelligence in potentia.

But what makes the earth a place where life could not have arisen?
That would be the main issue.
The serious question to you xxxooxxx.

Not whether f.i.the harmony principle caused life.

To study evolution you would apply a methodical approach and use chemical processes.
But to term it a process as such would imply intelligence applying method to it.

Okay xxxooxxx, i put my bit in, now show yours:

But if meteorites and other space goo can do it then why should earth-goo not be able to do it!
The latter would be the underying assumption of your theory.
So you would have to proof that there is something so particular about earth that life could not have formed.

I did not have it for eight years.
The fist time i watched again, about one hour long, i had pain in my eyes and head.
So it's just not healthy, but everybody gets used to it.

Equivocation is a wonderful word.;p

Right and that is allready a minefield.
At one glance i can detect: natural, phenomenon, marked, gradual changes, lead toward, a particular result, >>the >>process<< of growth<<.

Gone cyclic here.:p))

Well i have no intention of reproducing the entire board here, that addresses every single one of these terms involved in your definition.
Apart from the loop.

So shall we stick with what i gave!#77233

That's not an answer, you just made more assertions and presented no evidence to support them. You are a liar then.

Besides i've already given some other options, though not in this thread.
The competition for environmental advantages by means of parasitism or symbiosis directed towards short- and longterm effect on the viability of populations.

kittenkoder however specifically mentioned a tiny organism that does nothing. It just is. But who knows what struggles it went through!
