You are the one claiming that the title was in reference to Jesus, but can provide no evidence to substantiate such a claim. Now you want me to find your answer for you?

Humans are not part of any grand, cosmic "plan" or "process" of any sort. This is the part that many people seem to struggle with - that their life or being is not part of any universal "plan" laid out by some magical force of some sort. I've never understood why some people feel it necessary to think such a thing; it is a form of self-idolatry.
No, you don't understand. Dave was always an atheist, and then he came to jesus through a self taught application of the universal physical laws. A true maverick he is. His having grown up in a christian society and his ultimate choice to believe in jesus is only a happy coincidence.

No, dumbass. Prove that there's more historical evidence of Spider-man than Jesus.
Go.
Man. You've sunk low. But for real, who do you think would win in a fight?

Jesus's powers:
-indomitable will
-resistance to trickery
-incredible endurance
-pretty ripped bod
Special powers: ability to call upon the father once per fight

Spiderman's powers:
-very high agility and strength
-web slinging
-very smart
-cunning

Result, IMO: spiderman wins by tying jesus to a piece of wood with his webs and letting him sit there for 3 days. in a surprise twist, jesus uses his "call on the father power" right before death, and spiderman is smote instantly. jesus still dies though, because the father is a dick.

You mentioned Atlantis a post or two ago.
Get on Google Earth and zoom to the Venezuelan Basin. It is that large rectangular area under the ocean just south of the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico extending down toward the South American coast. Note the landscape around it. Note the depth and how sheer it is. That is where Atlantis was. Measure the area and compare to the accounts. Fits well. A bit silted over since then. Refer to the mud and hazards to navigation in and around the Mediterranean after it sank.
Then zip over to the Mid=Atlantic Ridge and locate the old outline of where Africa was. It is pretty clear. Atlantis was not far from outside the Pillars of Hercules. Note also how clear the old SE coastline shows up. It should have been erased by any drifting. The crust jumped and Africa got moved. A sudden displacement of the mantle below.
Academia is in error on its accounts of history and other things. And so are you.
Words cannot express how happy I am that you believe in atlantis. It adds an element of childish whimsy to your persona.

I told you what happened, li'l timmy.
I. Told. You. What. Happened.
Williams voiced his very real concerns over PUBLIC AIRWAVES, as was HIS RIGHT, and because they were unpopular among the radical liberals that now own that organization, he got fired for exercising the same First Amendment rights that NPR claims to support and uphold.
You *do* understand what I just told you, don't you? Don't try to change it to something more suitable and agreeable for you, don't try to "reinterpret" it like a hundred different christians reinterpreting the buybull, accept it on face value for what it is.
Your "what ifs" are irrelevant to the facts of the matter. I saw and heard all this from the man himself, you did not; you don't get to tell me what I saw and heard, I tell *you* what I saw and heard.
You are hypocritically attempting to defend the indefensible. Stop being such a goddamned liberal, and start being an intelligent human being.
Any more of your hypocritical liberal bullshit will simply be ignored.
Why are you such an angry person? Yes, you "told me what happened," and I did not attempt to reinterpret it or shift blame or anything. I said that if NPR in fact had a policy of allowing their personalities to go on other shows and make racist comments, then they were wrong in firing him. I do not think that was the case though. Was it? Again, freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences. You can be fired for saying something incredibly stupid. You keep ignoring my bill maher example, because it clearly demonstrates that I am not being hypocritical, just that I understand that there is a line that you shouldn't cross as a media personality.

Why are you acting like I'm saying it didn't happen? I think your rage is making you completely miss what I'm saying. If you would take a minute to breathe (maybe go for a jog or something too), you would see that you have an easy out. If you can tell me that NPR had a policy of allowing their people to say literally whatever they wanted even while speaking on another show, then I will concede that NPR was wrong and that will be that. I'm not too terribly invested in this absurd argument anyway.

<quoted text>While this analogy is comical, it shows you have a fundamental misunderstanding of plate tectonics (which is, in turn, responsible for continental drift).
"Continental drift" does not mean that the continents are simply drifting around, bulldozing everything in their path like you are implying. Rather, continental drift occurs as the tectonic plates the continents rest upon move around. There are different types of boundaries between these plates, as well. Some boundaries essentially slide past one another, another type of boundary is where the two plates move apart from one another (like the Mid-Atlantic Ridge), and another type of boundary is where two plates move towards each other. Only one of those types of boundaries - the one in which the plates are moving toward one another - would create a scenario even remotely like the bulldozer example you suggested.
The plate that South America is sitting on and the plate that Africa is sitting on are moving away from one another, contrary to the whole scenario you have concocted. You simply made up the boundary type to fit your story instead of first finding out what type of boundary actually exists between those particular plates.
Anyways, the plates are moving away from each other. Where they meet is the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. As the two plates move apart from one another magma reaches the seafloor (at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge) and hardens, in turn producing new plate material. They move apart from one another at about the rate of 2.5 cm per year. You are suggesting that 12,000 years ago, South America was next to Africa, which would place them (moving 2.5 cm apart from one another per year) at a whopping 300 meters away from one another now. This isn't even 1/5 of a mile. This isn't even remotely close to reality.
I know, I know, you suggested that South America surfed over to where it is now because of a meteor or earthquake. And there's a bulldozer in there somewhere. But, there is no evidence whatsoever to substantiate such an extravagant claim, nor does it even make any sense in regards to plate tectonics.
LOL!

Did you ever wander off. Right off to wiki and reciting one portion of a larger process.

You didn't even grasp what I was describing.

The lithosphere rides just above that more slippery layer I was talking about. That's your tectonic plates. Your bulldozer blade when it moves.

Africa rests on one of those plates. Now understand that plate isn't a monolithic substance, but an amalgam and layered with different materials, as is the continent that sits on it, or more properly a part of it.

Any mass with enough weight moving sideways will shear, or try to, any mass it encounters.

That SE coast outline was an impression left in the lithosphere. The continent shifted on the lithosphere without erasing that outline. Look at the eastern side of that Venezuelan basin and the bulging eastwards. Notice the sheer drops on the north side in particular. Something serious happened. And the direction seems to have been eastward towards Africa.

It could have been much longer than 12,000 years. They have been finding sites in the New World dating 20 to 40 thousand years. Could even be longer.

The simple fact is a 2500 year or so old text from Greece was referencing some technology and a civilization long before the "official" record can indicate. In addition to the rise and fall of civilizations and many environmental catastrophes. Evidently people were doing more than collecting nuts and berries, hunting mastodons, and grunting.
