  1. https://www.thevintagenews.com/2018/03/08/earths-first-trees/ Someone brought up a point that this again goes against the idea of evolution. Trees were "more complex and developed" back then than they are now.
  2. Today it's not uncommon for people to advocate for our evolution by pointing at athletic improvements and IQ. We know however that the further back we go ,the closer we were to perfection. This would mean that our ancestors would be fitter and smarter than us. More "potential". Today we have the advantage of collective knowledge from years pas t and better overall education system which teaches most youth all of this accumulated knowledge, but how much would we learn as "individuals" without such? This is where I'd say our ancestors would have the advantage.If our ancestors has all the knowledge and tech we do today, from Noah's time, I'm sure they'd be far more advanced than we are today. Just look at the Egyptians, even today they mystify people, there are debates and confusion over how they built their structures. They did some bad health practices like all ancient cultures, but they were at the very start of human existence, these people could only experiment to learn. (Which is why the cleanness of Israel is so evidently divine education). What is true also is that we "do" physically adapt, whilst we do not evolve, wherever we are, our generations will change physically in accordance to environment within the limitation of our kinds. On this subject I found two really interesting videos which actually go into depth of our "supposed" superiority to our ancestors and confirm the thoughts I have personally had for a long time on this subject. In essence, we have less natural potential now but more collected knowledge from experience, the first humans had greater potential but less knowledge and experience. Much like comparing a child to an adult, if both are the same age, only then can we say who is really "higher in IQ".
  3. For those unfamiliar, there was report of spies here in the UK that were said to be poisoned. There is more recent news, this time going further into Russian relations with the UK. http://www.itv.com/news/2018-03-07/russian-spy-sergei-skripal-and-daughter-exposed-to-nerve-agent-police-confirm/
  4. This is insane, almost inhuman! Well, now I know what I will be spending the Millennium to perfection on mastering..
  5. My off topic thread

    Lol, I'd fill up that thread.

    Yeah it's interesting. My question in another way of putting it is... if light is absent, does colour still exist? Now, this is similar to the philosophical riddle "if a tree falls, but nobody was around to hear , did it make a sound?" Of course, I'd say yes, if nobody heard it, it still made a sound because sound waves still were present at the place of impact wherever it was. To say otherwise would be to say "when God was alone before all other things, did he exist with nobody to observe him?" Obviously, yes he did, and in the same way the tree "did" make a sound. However, for my question, it's less philosophical and more based upon actual science. Without light, no colour can be seen. The definition of colour is when light reflects off an object in a certain wave length. So, if there is no light, there is no colour to be observed, as that's the only way we get colour. Each object has a defined colour and is objective in accordance to the light it is shown in. In day light, a shirt may always be "x" colour. But in a neon room, it may change, and if the world was neon and normal daylight was considered the "oddity" then our objective definition of colour would change. We all see the same colours (unless colourblind), and we can gauge that we all do by the effects on mood, lighting and so on that each colour has on the majority of people. So we can say that colours are not subjective in a sense, but we can say colour is subjective to the "source of light" it reflects from. In daylight, my shirt will always be white, in a neon room, it will always be blue. So, is my shirt blue or white? Well, we say white because we judge "real colour" by "natural light", but what natural light is, is subjective to where you are, maybe there is a planet somewhere where light is different? If you go to space, the sun will appear white, even though it is yellow, orange and red on Earth because of the way the light waves travel through the atmosphere. So, is it white, or yellow/orange/red? We know it's both, just depending on where you are, but we all will see the same thing, making it objective (locationally). http://solar-center.stanford.edu/SID/activities/GreenSun.html This article says the sun is "all" colours. So light is objective 'and' subjective. So, if colour is defined by the waves it travels through, that the sun is always yellow here, always white in space. My shirt white in daylight but always blue in neon. Where there is no light at all, is it really colourless? Hence why I make the statement that blood inside the body must be black, until an external light source changes it as colour is defined by the light that reflects off of the object.

    Oh sure, when light hits
  8. My off topic thread

    The saying that blood inside the body is blue is a myth, that it is always red... but... If we get colour from light waves, does that mean the inside of the body and blood is actually black?
  9. We should expect to be. Means we are doing the right thing to be known as such and yet have done nothing to actually deserve to be the most vilified. Because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. - Ephesians 6:12 17 Be on your guard against men, for they will hand you over to local courts and they will scourge you in their synagogues.18 And you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a witness to them and the nations - Matthew 10:17-18 “Then people will hand you over to tribulation and will kill you, and you will be hated by all the nations on account of my name". - Matthew 24:9
  10. It's common. It's a mixture of things. Not seeing your accomplishments for what they are and downplaying them, not being able to achieve a mental vision of what you want, comparing ourselves to others, living in a "fake" world where every product and person you see in the spot light is airbrushed and their social lives online only showing the good parts. The rising of anxiety in people, mental health issues and similar. And finally, wanting to be perfect when we are currently imperfect. (Romans 7:24) When all of this combines a person can easily feel "alone" in their problems and wants nothing but perfection in order to measure up and feel secure in themselves.
  11. I always love watching Soul Train dance videos. I wish I was there. It's one of my favorite eras of music and dance.
  12. Good point. I was trying to remember if he ever went off course a bit, which would explain things.
  13. Cool. But I notice something strange with the second picture. Why would a Hebrew seal have pagan Egyptian symbols on it? Unless it was someone elses and was a "collective" of seals and signatures on one object for some other purpose.
