This is something that christianity seem to think they are good at, hijacking or making up words to suite their own purposes. The word “Truthiness” is an early 21st century manifestation of this trait, it even shows up as a spelling error in my WP.
If you believe it to be true and you want it to be true then whether it is actually true or not decides if it is true or not, certainly no new made up word with change the facts.
It would be more honest (and here distorted christian morality comes into play) to say beliefiness but I suppose that does not sound as imposing as truthiness.
Note, morality is in general a human trait shared by some animals and even though christanity has hijacked the word to mean “we are better than you” makes no difference to the fact that morality was around a long time before christianity was a twinkle in Pantera’s eye.
event he wolves that share my land have morals...humans sometimes get a little full of themselves.(especially those that that think they were specially created by some god...)

Yes it would. And you would be blissfully unaware of the difference between factual truth and lying Truth
Then you tell me where the idea of Systems, Cycles and Patterns theory is not the Truth. Do systems in nature have regular or repetitive form and order to an arrangement?

I was only half kidding yesterday when I suggested you begin REALLY LEARNING about the abundance of knowledge already gathereed about "System" by reading the Wiki definition I provided: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System

You seem to be fixated on the idea that YOU are endowed with a profound understanding of "Systems", "Cycles" and "Patterns" and that the rest of humanity has yet to fathom the wisdom that ONLY YOU possess.

Do you also challenge Emril Lagasse and Rachel Ray to a culinary competition using your 'Easy-Bake Oven'?

I hate to break it to you, but you are NOT an authority on the subjects (note PLURAL) of systems, cycles, or patterns. You have nothing new, unique or of a philosophicaly penetrating insight on these topics.

You have "taught" us nothing, you have nothing new to teach.

I would hasten to add to my previous post that you are likely LESS educated in those subjects (and most probably quite a few other subjects) than the rest of the RATIONAL posters on these threads.

yes, in fact it has and you know it.

and so many parts of the bible that haven't been proven to be outright lies are so morally reprehensible as to make any rational, moral person shun that cult like the plague with AIDS and a nasty little sinus infection to boot all rolled into one...

Oh really? If I put together a good theory that has unity and it has a number of problem-solving strategies, then it is up to the smart people to try and prove it is not correct and reject it if they can.

Go for it. So far, you only commented on your observations of systems, cycles and patterns. No theory. No testable predictions. No anything.

Better get busy.
