The noun "Siphon Pump" is sometimes spelled as "Syphon Pump" as well and it has been redefined due to new discoveries.

We went through this crap a year or so ago with him. He thinks he has some sort of perpetual motion / free energy device using a siphon.

think he has even a clue as to how much energy went into getting that water to flow downhill? probably tapping one/one-thousandth of it

perpetual in that PT Barnum was right about the perpetual flow of suckers...

i would imagine your magic pump will have one of those checks by it in the very near future, right? oh, wait, how lang has it been around already? why no check in the right hand column for the magic pump?

why didn't ANYONE that lived with Jesus do that?
And no, no-one has ever risen from the dead. Jesus died just like every other human. there is no proof of the resurection, just another myth.
No one ever said you shouldn't live by solid principles or teachings, did they?
Um, they did write down those things. There ARE extant though fragmentary texts that have been found and preserved. They are papyrus scrolls. One of which is the Bodmer papyrus, among many. Quite honestly, there was quite a trade, after his resurrection, regarding items related to him (burial cloths, nails, the cross, etc). The modern practice in the catholic church of having "relics" is the modern day successor of this trade (people would buy the items then donate them to the church). Again, believe if you want, don't believe if you don't want, it matters not to me. Live well, my friend!

The oldest of the Bodmer Papyri - Papyrus 66 - has been dated to 200 AD/CE. Not quite contemporary with Jesus.

I'd be interest in any supporting evidence for the relic trade following the crucifixion.
