Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

He lost me at the giant skeleton reports with no evidence (save one easily faked picture) and the Smithsonian conspiracy.
A lot of those places are fairly nearby. I'll have to check some of them out.
On the subject of giant humans, Hiding is the best person to ask. However, if I may paraphrase what she told me in email once:

When a civilisation lives in near-optimal environment; readily available food sources, practically zero disease, etc, humans tend to increase in size, after about the 5th generation or so.

These humans are immense - 6 ft 6 and upwards.

For that reason, you will occasionally find skeletons of 'giant humans'- some may be as tall as 7 foot.

*Any error in here is mine and not HFY's*

Now, that is the biggest humans one would find. 10, 12 and 16ft humans have not been found by any accrdited source.

They're not possible, even with perfect health, anything more than I believe it was 8 feet would not be possible for the human anatomy.

Yes. Totally impossible.

Needless to say, humans of that size have not been found by any accredited sources at all

last time I checked almost all businesses in the U.S are privately owned and are for profit.
Just because Wall Street crashed and the government had to bail out a few bank and investment firms, didn't change much.
You're not following the investment and subsidies of your government. It skews ownership and undermines the notion of capitalism. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's utterly naive to believe you exist in a lazze faire market. You don't. You live in a market where the government subsidizes enterprizes it deems worthy of a future, requires them to compete against other nations, or requiring support to survive in a rapidly changing world.

Yes, America is more capitalist than other nations. No, America is not actually a free market. To think so is to be naive - just think about corn farmers. Soy farmers. The auto industry. The defense industry. Lumber. Fishing. Oil. The space industry. Medical care.

Boss, the list goes on and on. That's not a fault, it can be a good thing, but if you want to seriously analyze the issues, you have to understand how the US and market function.

In fact, a perfectly pure free enterprise system would be utterly repulsive. It would ditch the old in favor of the young, it would never offer health care except if you could beat the odds, and it would dump anyone in a losing position as easily as choosing a new shirt.

Onthem arethe books of a lost race of Jewish people who inhabited North America.These plates bear inscriptions inthe foreign language ofthese people. Eventuallythe angel leads me tothe plates and lets me takethem home. Even thoughthe plates are in a foreign language,the angel helps me to decipher and translatethem.Thenthe plates are taken up into heaven, never to be seen again. I havethe book that I translated fromthe plates. It tells of amazing things -- an entire civilization of Jewish people living here inthe United States 2,000 years ago. Andthe resurrected Jesus came and visitedthese people! I also showedthe golden plates to a number of real people who are my eye witnesses, and I havetheir signed attestations thatthey did, in fact, see and touchthe plates beforethe plates were taken up into heaven. Now, what would you say to me about this story? Even though I do have a book, in English, that tellsthe story of this lost Jewish civilization, and even though I do havethe signed attestations, what do you think? This story sounds nutty, doesn't it?

.....such as the 'personal relationship' that the Reverend Jesse Jackson JR. has vit the Chinks and continues to grow...what with they being Communist and all, and havin' all dat cheap child-labor in their countrySides... and Jackson (in Reality) being a hypocrite (professing to be a preacher on da one hand, and being a militant on the other)....The Chinks gave Jackson a lotta dough over the last 30 - 40 years and he repaid in kind by selling out America. A whole lotta people just don't know that. YET!!!...but it's True.

......The son of da Reverend Jesse Jackson SR., Jesse Jackson JR. just last week resigned his senatorship within the US of A senate.

Jackson has indicated in his resignation that he has done some wrong things, but that he is resigning mainly because he has been diagnosed as being Bi-Polar.

Bullschidt.

Jackson JR. is being investigated for corruption and things are 'heating UP'. Daddy won't get'em OFF this time.

Jackson JR. is the spawn of the biggest LIAR and Crook in the US of A and a former Black Panter to boot. Where in the hell did this pack of wolves get the untold millions that they have in the bank!!!!!....They most certainly do NOT have the education to have earned that amount legimately.

BobLoblah wouldn't trust these maggots as far as BobLoblah could toss'em. Ps:....and may they rot in hell to which they so vell belong.

They are hateful, hypocritical, hAtheistic schidt-for-brains like so many hereIN.

An Indian giver is someone who gives a present but takes it back. A bit like the infected blankets that wiped out indigenous Americans.

An Indian burn is more usually called a Chinese burn in the UK.

Anyway, everything is Indian. The proof is here:

Can you not see good inthe bible? Are you honestly sayingthere is not even one line inthe bible which speaksthe truth? I see truth even in some ofthe lines ofthe bible. Truth (God) is pervading everywhere!They only evidence I have is that my gurus andthe sikhs of that time whenthe GGS was written becamethe best human beings I have ever read about. Sikhism is a very new religion and we have alot of historical evidence (English, french, muslim sources) to prove sikhs were one ofthe, if notthe most, nicest people to walk this planet and this was only due to guru nanak dev jis teachings; live and let live!

In christianity only Jesus died for his people, but in sikhi nearly every guru was tortured and died for their people. My 5th guru was tortured, made to sit on a massive burning hot metal plate and had hot sand poured over their body. My 9th guru was tortured and beheaded. My 10th gurus children, only 7 and 9, were tortured, bricked alive and beheaded. His older children who were 11 and 15 were killed in battle. His mother was thrown of a tower and his father was the 9th guru who was beheaded.
Other saints were boiled alive, burned alive, cut from head to toe in half, had their scalp cut off. Babies were cut into pieces and those pieces were sewn together and made into necklaces which were put around their mothers necks.
Our first sikh saint general was banda singh bahadur, his 4 year old son was cut open, while alive and his little heart was put in his fathers mouth. Then bahadur jis "eyes were gouged out. Baba ji's Body was then hung on a Gate where he was skinned alive. Then his body was pierced with red hot rods; finally he dismembered limb by limb".-sikhiwiki.
And this is just the beginning of sikh history!
Christians love jesus because he died on a cross for them, so how can I leave my gurus and sanits who went through SO MUCH, just for me? I can't!
There are sooooooooo many saints, they walk amongst us! The are the ones who fight for justice, they are the purest of the pure!!
Guru nanak dev ji was physically a man, but he had reached divine understanding, so he became one with God. We believe that when you become one with someone the difference between you and them is finished. You become them and they become you. This can only be understood through love, not with your brains. If you loved a woman more than yourself and she loved you more than herself, there would be no difference between you in your hearts, but you will always be a man and she a woman.
No it's ok, you can butt in any time!:-)
Are you a christian?
