There is no reason why Jesus should love you, but he does. No one is righteous, not even one. But through the grace of God we can be saved from these pain filled lives we are living. A true christian knows that this world is not our home, theres something greater out there. All you have to do is look for it.

I wouldn't argue with that, but Dim might. He doesn't distinguish between abstractions like ideologies and the people that hold it. To him, hating one is hating both.

Ok, read those, searched in the academic lit and found nothing and no evidence whatsoever to back up those stories. The geological survey found no extreme radiation at all.
"The results of the measurement of natural radioactivity in soil collected from various locations of three districts of Rajasthan state using the gamma spectrometry technique are presented. The data on calculated and measured values of outdoor air absorbed dose rates due to terrestrial gamma radiation at each location are also discussed. It has been observed that the concentrations of the natural radionuclides viz., 40K, 226Ra and 232Th in the soils vary from 50 to 137 Bq.kg-1, from 30 to 78 Bq.kg-1 and from 43 to 106 Bq.kg-1 respectively. It has also been observed that on average, the outdoor terrestrial gamma air absorbed dose rate is about 6.7 x 10-8Gy.h-1 for the three districts and the corresponding outdoor annual effective dose of 8.2 x 10-5 Sv. Weak correlations have been observed between the concentration of 40K and that of 226Ra and 232Th."

Another:
"It is observed from the results that there is no significant radiation hazard due to natural radionuclides of the soil samples in the studied areas."

I'm sorry, what can be stated without evidence can be dismisssed without evidence.
Those are good. Thanks. I wonder why the Indian govt. restricted the area.

From my point of view, I'm overjoyed that Christians cherry pick what to believe from the Bible. That's the only form of progression possible in such a system. Pretty soon there won't be many cherries left though. I'm looking forward to that.
Good point.

And by what standard do they decide which scriptures to embrace and which to jettison? There can only be one answer to that: humanist standards. Apart from other religions, what else is there but rational ethics to guide them?

The best Christians are humanists, like Sora and Seraphine, who refuse to embrace Christian homophobia, for example. The ones that have retained too much of their bibles, such as the commandment to not suffer witches, are not good people.

The same thing has happened to their version of science. People that won't cherry pick what to believe about the history of the universe sound like cave men.

That merely states that it is safe, not that there is no anomaly.
The Iridium Layer at the KT Boundary is safe, too. Are you going to dismiss the Chicxulub impact theory as well ?
For all intent, anything having a 4,000 year span since incident even as Hiroshima would be negligible or non existent in tests. It would take testing similar to the Great Lakes investigation to even realize any trace paths or effects...and then... that sets all the dating way off. I don't know if I explained that right.

Yeah, the geoscience backs that up - it was mostly likely caused by a meteorite.
I found two articles on how old it is. The first claims that it is young and hints that it may be responsible for ending one city of the Harappan period:
http://www.geosocindia.org/abstracts/2006/nov...
In fact, the above is the only scientific article I could find that suggests perhaps a meteorite impacted a human settlements - that's certainly possible, and I hope they study it further, but it does not suggest nuclear war.
Also, please note that none of the geological surveys find increased radiation, as you would with a weapon strike. Let's say the scenario where the meteorite strikes the town is correct - that would give off intense heat, too, as per the description, but not be nuclear.
Another suggests the event took place in the Miocene (about 10 million years ago):
http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2008/pdf...
If the above is correct, then the Sanskrit writing is simply mythology explaining the crater.
What is the radiation readings at Hiroshima? That was 1945...only 68 years ago.
Today, the background radiation in Hiroshima and Nagasaki is the same as the average amount of natural radiation present anywhere on Earth.

Gone, mostly. You have to realize that the Japanese government did a clean up (got rid of the topsoil and most of the buildings) and the bombs exploded in the air, leaving no impact crater.

Nuclear bombs have a spherical damage area. The US military set the bombs to blow up to cause maximum damage - that's in the air. It also leaves less radioactive residue behind b/c it's not vaporizing the ground.

Better to compare it to the Nevada test sites or Bikini atoll. Nevada remains highly radioactive, as does the land around Bikini atoll, but the water is now radioactive-free, b/c the ocean washed everything away.

You are redirecting from me asking you for evidence to support your claims.
Why?
What? Redirecting?
I was simply following your rhetoric about being able to prove that any structures of the ancients could be easily explained in their capability and construction, and that the stone ones were the easiest...HERE IS THE POST I ANSWERED.

Hunter gatherers built elaborate structures, actually.
People of the past were as intelligent as we are today. They simply lacked our knowledge and technology. They were equally innovative as any of us are - perhaps more so, since their environment was technologically impoverished and difficult to survive in.
However, there are all kinds of ways to use ancient technologies to get accurate measurements. Pendulums give relatively accurate measurements using light and shadow (and you can measure distant objects with shadow), jade is harder than steel, obsidian finer than surgical steel, wood expands with water and cuts rock, leverage allows you to lift much heavier objects.
Pyramids are pretty easy to build - you just stick less big rocks on the second level, less on the third, and so on, and you get a pyramid. It's the easiest structure to build out of stone and that's why the ancient world has a lot of them. For most dig sites, archaeologists have evidence of how buildings were built and they've often found the tools used to do so.
Which structures do you think people could not have built?
The thing is, if you're going to suggest that we couldn't do it, you're going to have to provide evidence for your remarkable hypothesis. As it stands, there's absolutely no reason to think people could not have built any human structure on this planet.
If, however, we found a robot or spaceship or something from 3000 BC, that would change.

Just that, I believe is sufficient for this site, so I will leave it at that.
It is alright if you just say "I don't know or we don't know yet".
I will accept that if that is the case. It would be good if you actually do have an honest answer to this, as I have yet to find one that is acceptable.

They conclude it's most likely a meteorite impact (all evidence suggests that). The geological reports I referenced above show no abnormal radiation levels. Not sure where you are getting your information from, but you are invited to post links to the scientific articles that support your assertions.
Amazing /// and all of this was done using (2) "grains" of quartz...as that is all they had to work with from an entire 3.5 mile wide target.
Not that I would disagree with the results of the tests on those (2) grains....And yet they are noted still inconclusive as proof in 5 years of study.
