In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Pretty much, yes.

Funny how you insist that soccer was "invented" by the British, though.

I remember the documentary. The entire conflict lasted eight minutes or so, if memory serves.

Of course, the hunt (and eventual destruction) of the Bismarck was another great chapter to follow. A pity that a ship that proud and with that cred (come now, the Bismarck sank the Hood; that is like a boxer knocking off a Klitschko) got sunk so soon after making its name.

Apparently, Hitler was working on some megaship twice the size of Bismarck, with 24 inch guns, if the sources are to be believed. Don't think they would have turned the tide, though.

Double Fine out for the weekend!

And of course - putting aside that the undocumented the 1903 "flights" were dismissed by Richard Pearse himself.

That is to say you were proved wrong yet again.

Whether or not Pearce was actually ever airborne (and these flights were "discovered" after he died), his contraption never produced controlled flight.

Do the human cannonballs actually fly?

As I noted and as every man here who has ever been married knows exactly how that goes.

'Pearse himself never made such claims, and in an interview he gave to the Timaru Post in 1909 only claimed he did not "attempt anything practical...until 1904".'

Still waiting for your post proving there is any historical evidence.

Do note you told us that Richard Pearse beat the Wright Brothers and I refuted that with a statement by Pearse himself.

I don't need to.

Do let me know when you learn the difference between direct voting, indirect voting, and not ever- never- getting to vote or any say at all.

I voted for the POTUS/VPOTUS two weeks ago.

What you appear to be saying here is that the 1884 De Dion-Bouton et Trepardoux is not a car and the Jaguar XK-R is, is that how you want people to see you?
Hey don't just take it from me it is the consensus of all inventors because they have a fully operational and functioning airplane first.

"The inventors of the first airplane were Orville and Wilbur Wright. On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers made the first successful experiment in which a machine (aka airplane) carrying a man rose by its own power, flew naturally and at even speed, and descended without damage."

http://inventors.about.com/od/fstartinvention...

In the two years afterward, the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wright_brothers

Many people worked on various kinds of gliders and other planes over the years, so no one person invented the airplane. The Wright Brothers of Dayton, Ohio, are generally recognized as making the first powered aircraft flight (but see below).

On December 17, 1903, the Wright Brothers launched the first successful air flight at Kitty Hawk, NC, flying over the location four times. Orville flew the first flight, Wilbur having encountered difficulties in his own attempt on December 14.

On May 22, 1906, the brothers received a patent for their design of the

"first airplane",

or "Flying Machine." The flight and plane changed the ideas of transportation around the world, even though their prototype only flew for a few seconds. Worldwide, inventors began building many different types of powered aircraft.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_invented_the_ai...

They also did something all the other first inventors could not
do , made more than one flight in the same day, improved it
and made many more flight with the same machine.
Improved it with two more models and in 6 years did another first.

Produced the worlds first military plane.
