Its possible it stopped and started in the opposite direction, but the most likely scenario is that it shifted it's orbit.
Uranus rolls like a barrel, Venus rotates opposite.
If it was flipped from an impact it would still be turning in the same direction it started , but is upside down.

The most likely scenario was it flipped its axis. And orbit.
Take away spinning on a gravity center and you really don't have much holding that axis.
Throw a hook down the alley and have it hit a lump just off center. Your axial tilt will change just by encountering resistance, any resistance.

What a bunch of gobbledegook bullshit.
That's what I said without the word axis Dave, but you knew exactly what I meant.

Here is a good opportunity to try some critical thinking skills.
Do people who believe in UFOs, Santa, Dracula, the tooth fairy, etc proselytize and try and use the government to foist their ideology on other people to the degree that certain Christian groups do in this country?
Why aren't there any anti-Santa-ers? Anti-Dracula sites? Anti-tooth fairy groups? Etc......

Cuz y'alls is stuck on God.

More like reminding militant Atheist of the freedom of religion clause in the United States Constitution.
Of course Atheist never appreciate this. They would prefer that the constitution be modified where freedom is removed.
Your not free if you don’t have a choice. I thought I would never come up against people in my own country that stood against freedom.
Our freedoms are always under attack. I’ve seen it first hand here in this sleepy historical city I live in. The place where Abraham Lincoln walked and lived.
We the People, need to fight those who want to undermine the constitution and strip us of our freedoms.
My country,'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
2
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
3
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
4
Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
Additional verse to celebrate Washington's Centennial
5
Our joyful hearts today,
Their grateful tribute pay,
Happy and free,
After our toils and fears,
After our blood and tears,
Strong with our hundred years,
O God, to Thee.
Additional verses by Henry van Dyke
6
We love thine inland seas,
Thy groves and giant trees,
Thy rolling plains;
Thy rivers' mighty sweep,
Thy mystic canyons deep,
Thy mountains wild and steep,--
All thy domains.
7
Thy silver Eastern strands,
Thy Golden Gate that stands
Fronting the West;
Thy flowery Southland fair,
Thy North's sweet, crystal air:
O Land beyond compare,
We love thee best!
Nice!!

Artist: Lee Greenwood
Song: Proud To Be An American

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘ Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I’m proud to be and American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

You probably can find something in the school libraries about the “Tooth Fairy and many other fictional characters.
I have no problem with the bible sitting in the fiction section.
Eagle12 wrote:
But a Bible is forbidden? You claim it’s fiction then why isn’t it allowed in Schools like all the other fiction books?
It is allowed and there are even classes on world religions.

You may say because it has religious contents. So does Harry Potter.
We don't care about it's religious content, it just cannot be taught as fact. Especially in science class.
Eagle12 wrote:
As far as Priest sexually violating young boys. The Bible talks about a great whore in Revelation 17. Do you know who this is being depicted?
Why did your god wait until then to say that? Of course, he never said anything against child rape.

There’s a lot of good honest people in the Catholic Church. But their leadership from Rome on down is packed with pedophiles that should have been arrested, prosecuted. I don’t believe in vigilantism. I also don’t believe criminals going free.
He who is without sin, cast the first stone. Funny, Jesus never said, "Unless it is a pedo."

You don't follow your own god; why the hell would I believe anything you say?

Does this ring a bell?“cdesign proponentsists”

Was it the followers of the Tooth Fairy that tried to force the government to force the schools to teach intelligent design?

Was it the followers of the Tooth Fairy that lied about creationism?

Intelligent Design is just as much fact as non-intelligent design.

But you favor the latter?

Gee, I wonder why.....
