Yes we can say for sure.

Oxygen is necessary for water.

All elements heavier than lithium were formed in stars. ALL of them.

Oxygen is heavier than lithium.

Therefore, it is necessary for stars to form before water could exist.

These are facts. Irrefutable facts.

You are entitled to your own opinions. You are not entitled to your own facts.

But i at least take it that most here are aware that the balance of power is not equal and that sex is always to to with power in cases where it is not two consenting adults and even then power is afactor in relationships.
And the bodies are simply not full grown, so damage always occurs.
And ask if those kids were feelinf they could say no. Ofcourse not, and even if they did, they wold have been ignored.
So it is always wrong, no matter what culture.
Like UNICEF states you need to have the adult body, mind and mentality. or damage will occur.
Really, MAAT. You ARE patronizing. That really isn't a sound approach for someone who handles confrontation by typing out long essays on the composition of bodily fluids.

You want an essay. You've got one.

Modern liberal thinking is based on the redistribution of wealth, but it is compromised because the balance of power does not favor the working class. They are a group that is kept under control but dependence on drugs and other such things that liberal blatantly advocate, as they have right here on this forum.

That dependence has left certain elements of the aristocracy trapped by a need to resort to using criminals to leverage their power. That trap has made them as useless as the plebeian masses that they depend on to game the elections.

You have your allies, but no ideas. You have name-calling bullying, but no real science. You have your freaky weird essays but everyone knows you're not talking to us. You're talking to the Boss. You serve your master.

As Evolution is concerned, dependence on drugs is counter-evolutionary. You can't win the argument because you're nothing but a poor wordsmith. Your politics is not the Liberalism of Roosevelt's day. It's a freakishly bad "Guys and Dolls" or "West Side Story", choreographed by clueless people for clueless people.

As the plebeians find out that they aren't getting any more drugs, just pansy movies, they will organize. I'd prefer that they don't go straight to the criminals who give you your fix, but the reality is that addict plebeians are liabilities anyway.

The world is going into economic collapse because you've all wasted the workforce. China has been driven to purge itself of the Opium dens, while the capitalists have been moving every single dollar that they can stuff into a pillow case abroad.

I don't care to waste time on sloppy debate over Keynesian economics or the invisible hand. The people who prosper will be those who respect and work with their fellow men, and that ain't happening here. Now, you can ramble on about bodily fluids or macro-evolution but it's a bit silly as YOU are a non-participant. You serve your master only. Have a nice day. I've got to go to work now.

I guess you'll have to ask Woodtick. He's allowed himself to fixate on the image.

Personally, I tend to prefer images of Satan that illustrate the embracement of filth. The guy who played Satan on Constantine was a good image. Viggo Mortensen wasn't too bad but he's a bit pretty for the role in "The Prophecy".

Are so you are a sock of Bible Belt. Fair enough

I take you word that you are the proud owner of a fascinating gemstone or two.

May I ask, are the pictures visible as pictures that can be interpreted as pictures with relevance to the human experience or are the pictures the result of banding during formation over millions of years and highlighted with carving and polishing bringing out the natural colours of the banding?

Quite the contrary, we can say *for sure* that there was no water before there were stars. A molecule of water consists of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. But oxygen nuclei are formed inside of stars (or when stars explode in supernova). So oxygen requires stars to form. So there was no water before there were stars.

Some basic science is good for you.

While the optimists and pessimists were arguing over whether the glass was half full or half empty, I drank the Scotch.
