I love christmas! It is one of the best pagan rituals we follow!
You know the routine:
Evergreens in the house = pagan.
Celebrating the Winter Solstice = pagan
So on and so forth...
Xmas has been a secular holiday for a long time and it has never been christian.
Not so down under.....

We celebrate in the Summer Solstice as such... however, many Pagans of course, evolved and became Christians and celebrate Christmas. Probably many Pagans are not even aware that their ancestors, who were not monkeys, celebrated anything at all :)

Atheists often attribute God with human characterists and/or flaws. They do this so they can pretend to scientifically scrutinize Him. That's why they call Him skydaddy, say He's an old white man with a long white beard & say that He lives in the clouds....

Hmmm.
So how would one get the gas into liquid form?
Hypothetically, of course
Super glue is Methyl-2-cyanoacrylate when heated decomposes to Cyanide gas.

So lets say I am heating superglue...

How do I get the cyanide gas into a liquid/solid form that I can actually feed an enemy...errr I mean just have some fun with?

When you say, "Not so down under....", are you talking about the Aboriginal people or the white settlers?

I am certain that the Aboriginal Australians did not celebrate jesus' birthday.

Pagans did not evolve into christians, they were mostly converted by torture.

Keep your eyes closed. Don't try to think. God likes them like that.

Shakespear?
In journalism school (I know something about this), the first thing you have drilled into you is:
Read your copy, read your copy, then read your copy.
Shakespear was a famous author. Him, Dikens and Orwill were some of the most famous writers ever.

I wonder how many "atheists" they can a year nowadays.

They used to be organic, and each a little different flavor, individually wrapped.

Now you grab one off the shelf, pull the tab, and pour them in a bowl. Then season heavily.

That mushy plopping sound emptying the can is a little disconcerting. Makes you think you should do it in the bathroom, and not the kitchen.

I have to get through the Thanksgiving festivities first. Picture a large table in a sterile dining room. 30 or so people dining on the carcasses of 5 large birds. My favorite chef (in the whole world) brings me a plate of wild rice, wild mushrooms and asparagus. Furtive glances my way, "is she sane now"?
Fun.
Some people do not understand that "Sane" does not mean to be like them. all " sane" really means is the ability to fit reasonably into society with out causing harm.

I've been through this a couple of times before. Please pay attention.
Iron gets magnetized. It concentrates magnetic fields. It is in your blood. It is affected by magnetic fields, and it also induces electricity on the cellular level. The smaller fields follow the larger fields, but there is time delays between what happens in different sections. It contributes to animation. The core of the earth is iron. Collecting cosmic magnetic emissions on a larger scale, which are then also passed onto the smaller fields walking around on the surface. Those cosmic fields have a shaping affect on those walking bodies, including their "thoughts". They were shaped and formed within those emissions for a long time.
Everything alive has an EM signature. Derived from chemical processes and cosmic influences. Cosmic not just from what radiates from the sky directly on you, but also what is collected and retransmitted via the earth core, possibly even amplified. This is flows, not "super magnets".
At the least, carbon organisms are collections of tuned EM circuits.
DNA amplifies coding in very small thingies into much larger creatures. Almost, if not every bit, done by EM processes. Those DNA are also tuned circuits.
Gravitationally, the center of mass for you, me, and every object in this solar system is almost dead center of the sun. That is where the balance point between us and the sun is. You shift an ounce here, and you shift an ounce there.
You are flying on remote control.
So, because magnetic fields exist, and because we have iron in our blood, we are under remote control? That's quite the leap. You're stating a couple facts - the core of the earth is iron, the earth has a magnetic field, we have iron in our blood, and then connecting them in a way for which you have no a shred of evidence. Claim dismissed.

Maybe this is where Dave gets his "science" from:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daleks_%E2%80%93... .

The Daleks plan to remove the Earth's iron core in order to pilot it like a spaceship. That all sounds very reasonable and well thought out (!).
