It does sick. The legal system seems to have been arranged so that the layman can't figure it out. We need them scumbag lawyers to talk the right language to the scumbag judges.
When I got divorced, it was amicable. We had agreed on everything - who gets what, time with the kids, child support, etc. I tried filing my own divorce papers but couldn't figure out the strange language on all the forms and I didn't know the court's procedures. I had to hire a paralegal just to help with the friggin paperwork.
Boo hoo.

But hey, when my sink leaks, I get a C36 guy.

And I don't complain.

Again, boo hoo for you.

In California, if an unlicensed "contractor" (handyman) does work for you, and you are dissatisfied and you don't pay him, he cannot resort to court action to recover.
Correct.

Which is why I ALWAYS recommend that people only hire licensed & insured contractors for work on their home.

If they have a written agreement, or an oral, then he could take action under some civil law. He just needs to hire a lawyer. He could also go for defrauding by the person having the work done, particularly if materials were involved.
Actually Dave, people hire unliscensed people, get a good job done and purposely don't pay them. It is always dismissed quickly if they sue.

Nope.

You better stick to your expertise on EM and other magnetisms.

Hey, if you don't have a contractor's license, and you chop off your fingers while using an electric saw, can you sue yourself?

No, it seems logical to you. That does not make it 'logical'
First and foremost, the Tower of Babel is one of the most absurdly stupid mythical stories written down in the Bible. A tower that 'reached the heavens'? Really? Despite the fact we have sent up spacecraft and still have found the heavens? It is absolutely laughable and I cannot see any but the most naive minds believing in this myth. Then, a great many other languages happened long before the mythical tower. It is a myth and it has been busted.
Also, on your "developments of characteristics" hypothesis you are way, wat out. You want to tell me that all the different traits of all the different people evolved in 4,000 years? Not possible. That is way too much change in way too little time.
It's laughable that you claim to be so witty and full of knowledge, but yet truly ignorant of the term "Heaven" and what it means..

You can be on the 20th floor in a building, and be in Heaven...

Knowledge abounds, but wisdom is "rare"....

The modern English word heaven is derived from the earlier (Middle English) heven (attested 1159); this in turn was developed from the previous Old English form heofon. By c. 1000, heofon was being used in reference to the Christianized "place where God dwells", but originally, it had signified "sky, firmament"[1](e.g. in Beowulf, c. 725).

The English term has cognates in the other Germanic languages: Old Saxon he&#384;an "sky, heaven", Middle Low German heven "sky", Old Icelandic himinn "sky, heaven", Gothic himins; and those with a variant final -l: Old Frisian himel, himul "sky, heaven", Old Saxon/Old High German himil, Dutch hemel, and modern German Himmel. All of these have been derived from a reconstructed Proto-Germanic form *Hemina-.[2] In many languages, the word for "heaven" is the same as the word for "sky".

Yes. OMG....

Nothig bad against Mexicans, but people are crazy in their assumption that just because a person is Mexican, they can lay tile or reroof your house.

I always STRONGLY advise against hiring the non-licensed and non-insured. I vehemently recommend against hiring illegal morons.

<quoted text>
Not so fantastic as that. And no poofing allowed.(I can't post the link, but here - read this)
1. God creates the heavens (the universe) and the earth. The universe had a finite beginning. Genesis 1:1
Fact: Scientists also agree that the universe had a finite beginning starting with the Big Bang.
2. The earth was covered in water and darkness was over the water. Genesis 1:2
Fact: Research has confirmed both theoretically and observationally (via studies of Earth's oldest rocks) that indeed water initially covered most of the earth's crust. The first atmosphere was also full of volcanic debris and other harmful gases from the initial creation that would have prevented any light from coming through it.
3. God allows light to permeate through the darkness unto the earth. Genesis 1:3
Fact: After a while, the solar winds would have blown away the volcanic debris and gases exposing some light in the first atmosphere. Scientists also agree that light would have been the first thing needed to conduct plant life through photosynthesis and heat up the earth.
4. God creates thick clouds or water vapor in the earth's atmosphere. Genesis 1: 6-7
Fact: Scientists agree that the earth would require a stable water cycle of condensation and future precipitation for lifes survival. This water vapor cover would be an ideal environment (greenhouse) for growing plants, trapping heat and melting ice. Also known as the second atmosphere, this vapor layer was so thick that the stars, sun and moon were not clearly visible.
5. God separates the dry land from the water in one place. Genesis 1: 9-10
Fact: Most scientists agree that the land was one land mass called Pangaea that formed out of the water then split apart to make the other continents.
6. God creates plants on earth. Genesis 1: 11-12
Fact: Scientists agree that plants were the first living organisms to colonize the earth before the complex land animals (deer, fox, bear) and fish. Plant life is crucial for the creation of oxygen, the removal of carbon dioxide, and creating sugars and food for the mammals.
7. God clears the clouds and allows the sun, moon and stars to be discernible in the skies and to mark the days and seasons. Genesis 1: 14-16
Fact: In the first and second atmospheres a water vapor canopy, gases, and other debris surrounded the earth. After the plants started to develop, these dense atmospheres diminished (exposing the stars, sun and moon) as the plants produced enough oxygen to produce our third atmosphere which includes the ozone layer which now protects us from the ultraviolet radiation. The ozone layer is critical for sustaining life and giving us clear skies to see the heavens.
8. God creates marine life. Genesis 1: 20-22
Fact: Most scientists agree that marine life did indeed arise before the land animals and man. With light, breathable air, dry land, oceans, plants, water cycles, and an ozone layer to protect them, the world is now ready for sea creatures and animals and eventually humans.
9. God creates animals. Genesis 1: 24-25
Fact: Scientists agree that virtually every animal phyla (including chordates and many phyla now extinct) appeared during a short geological moment.
10. God creates mankind. Genesis 1: 26-27
Fact: According to the geologic time scale, scientists agree that mankind was one of the last mammals created on the earth. Exactly like the Genesis account.
But no talking snakes or 7 days or 900 year old people.

Scientists don't have that kinda stuff.

Because > Genesis.
