    Einstein's Gravity Theory Passes Toughest Test Yet

    Apr. 25, 2013 — A strange stellar pair nearly 7,000 light-years from Earth has provided physicists with a unique cosmic laboratory for studying the nature of gravity. The extremely strong gravity of a massive neutron star in orbit with a companion white dwarf star puts competing theories of gravity to a test more stringent than any available before

    Ancient Earth Crust Stored in Deep Mantle

    Apr. 24, 2013 — Scientists have long believed that lava erupted from certain oceanic volcanoes contains materials from the early Earth's crust. But decisive evidence for this phenomenon has proven elusive. New research from a team including Carnegie's Erik Hauri demonstrates that oceanic volcanic rocks contain samples of recycled crust dating back to the Archean era 2.5 billion years ago. Their work is published in Nature.

    Einstein letter, set for auction, shows scientist challenging idea of God, being 'chosen'

    By Jessica Ravitz, CNN

    Decades before atheist scientist and author Richard Dawkins called God a "delusion," one world-renowned physicist – Albert Einstein – was weighing in on faith matters with his own strong words.

    “The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends,” Einstein wrote in German in a 1954 letter that will be auctioned on eBay later this month. "No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this.”

    Earth From Space

    Detailed satellite images reveal the web of connections that sustain life on Earth. Aired February 13, 2013 on PBS

    Program Description

    "Earth From Space" is a groundbreaking two-hour special that reveals a spectacular new space-based vision of our planet. Produced in extensive consultation with NASA scientists, NOVA takes data from earth-observing satellites and transforms it into dazzling visual sequences, each one exposing the intricate and surprising web of forces that sustains life on earth. Viewers witness how dust blown from the Sahara fertilizes the Amazon; how a vast submarine "waterfall" off Antarctica helps drive ocean currents around the world; and how the sun's heating up of the southern Atlantic gives birth to a colossally powerful hurricane. From the microscopic world of water molecules vaporizing over the ocean to the magnetic field that is bigger than Earth itself, the show reveals the astonishing beauty and complexity of our dynamic planet.

  2. kindness

    This is my experience... Thank you.

    MY personal testimony.
    A thought to consider without an ego response

    Accept Jesus christ as your lord and saviour. You never know how soon is too late. Transcend the worldly illusion of enslavement.
    The world denounces truth....

    Accepting Jesus Christ (for me) resulted in something like seeng a new colour. You will see it .....but will not be able to clearly explain it to anyone else..... Its meant to be that way to transend any selfism within you.

    Also... much the world arranges "surrounding dark matter into something to be debated" in such a way that protects/inflates the ego.

    The key is be present and transcend our own desire to physically see evidence. We don't know anyways by defending our own perception of dark matter.

    Currently.... most of us are constructing our own path that suits our sin lifestyle. Were all sinners. Knowing that we are is often an issue. But both christians and non are sinners.

    We don't like to Let go and let god. We want control to some degree. This is what Jesus asks us to do. "Follow me".
    It's the hardest thing to do... but is done by letting the truth of scripture lead you (redemptive revelation)... as I said .

    Try reading corinthians and see if it makes sense to you. Try it without a pre conceived notion of it being a fairy tale.
    See the truth...
    do we do what it says in todays society... is it relevant... so many have not recently read and only hinge their philosophy on what they have heard from som other person...which may have been full of arogance pride or vanity..

    Look closely at the economy ponzi, look at how society idolizes Lust , greed , envy, sloth, pride of life, desire for knowledge, desire for power, desire for revencge,gluttony with food etc .

    Trancsend the temporal world.

    Just think if you can find any truth you can take with you ....in any of these things. When you die your riches go to someone who will spend away your life..... You will be forgotten.... history will repeat iteslf.... the greatest minds knowledge fade or are eventually plagerzed..... your good deeds will be forgotten and only give you a fleeting temporary reward . your learned teachings are forgotten or mutated..... your gold is transfered back to the rullers that rule you through deception. Your grave will grow over . This is truth .

    Trancsend your egoism and free yourself from this dominion of satan. Understand you are a sinner and part of the collective problem of this worldly matrix... Repent.... Repent means knowing (to change) The Holy spirit (within) will convict you beyond what you think you can do by yourself. Grace is given to those who renounce the world. That are" in" the world but not "of " the world.

    Evidence follows faith. Faith does not follow evidence..... Faith above reason in Jesus Christ.

    Faith comes by Reading or Hearing the word of god from the bible . Ask Jesus in faith for dicernment and start reading the new testament... You will be shocked when you lay down your preconceived notions and ....see and hear truth ... see how christ sets an example ... feel the truth....

    Read Ecclesiastes. Read corinthians.

    You cant trancend your own egoism by adapting a world philosophy to suit your needs. Seek the truth in Christ.

    Sell all your cleverness and purchase true bewilderment. You don't get what you want ....you get what you are in christ.

    I promise this has been the truth for me. In Jesus christ .

    Think of what you really have to lose. ...your ego?

    Break the Matrix of illusion that holds your senses captive.

    once you do . you too will have the wisdom of God that comes only through the Holy Spirit. Saved By grace through Faith. Just like seeing a new colour.... can't explain it to a transient caught in the matrix of worldly deception.
    You will also see how the world suppresses this information and distorts it

    You're all smart people . I tell the truth. Its hard to think out of the box when earthly thinking is the box.
    I'ts a personal free experience you can do it free anytime . Don't wait till you are about to die.. START PUTTING YOUR TREASURES WHERE THEY REALLY MATTER >
    Its awsome and It's just between you and Jesus

    my testimony

    Romans 10:9

    "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved

  4. PRISM 1234

    "So we deserve to be burned forever just because we believe something different from you?"
    WE ALL DESERVE eternal separation from God.
    It is what you do with Jesus Christ, God's son what will determine your sou's destiny. He gave His son to save us, and to reject Him is the worst sin one cold commit. Those who reject Him have no covering for their sins, and since there is only only one alternative to eternity with Him, which is eternity without Him, hell is to only destination. But God did not intend it for human souls. If HE did, HE wouldn't have sent His Son to die in our place.
    This is the price to pay for rejecting God's gift. Why then blaming Him?

      No, Sam Stone, I don't whip myself. Jesus took whips in my stead and bore my sins on the cross, so that I can be free. You could be free too, but you have rebellion in your heart, and are doing the same as the mob that yelled "crucify Him".
      Do you think that it is cruel for God to let you to go on your way, heading to that place of the damned called Hell, since you rejected Him?

  6. PRISM 1234

    Hellbound, it looks as you're on the way there! But it ain't what you think it is...no wild parties, no good time there, as some of satan's servants tell you, amusing themselves, while you joke about it.
    It is only weeping and gnashing of teeth, with immeasurable pain and without hop that's awaiting those who enter there.
    . But you go ahead and get a little more laugh, and mock a little more!
    But what's coming to you, it'll happen soon enough!
    And the echo of your laughter will haunt you all eternity, forever, ever and ever......

    But Christ died in your stead, to keep you from going there. Why do you allow your conscience to die, and why do you harden your heart?

    May 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm |

      There is no words to describe the agony, the loneliness, abandonment and regret of those who are imprisoned there. You can ridicule the worlds I said here, but you will remember them when you're there. God has not intended it for you or any human soul to end up there. But if you go there, it's because you rejhected the mercy of God. God is JUST and He WILL ALLOW YOU to choose your own way!

      Prism, just a little word to the wise, dumbass. Have you actually read the bible?

      Did you know that "hell" does not exist? Do you know what your bible actually has to say about it? You should consider doing a little reading on your own before crying on continuously. According to your useless trash book, when people like me die, we don't go anywhere. We simply die and that's it. Do a little reading about what jesus was talking about in regard to the "lake of fire," which was an area outside of the town he was preaching where garbage and bodies were taken to be burned. You insolent retard. Educate yourself before you get smeared again.

    † Atheist are satanic and have gothic lifestyle.
    † Atheists causes problem in our religious society.
    † Atheists are mentally ill, that's why they have no faith.
    † Atheism won't take you to kingdom of heaven and paradise.
    † Atheism making you agree with Stalin, Hitler (Denied his faith later), Mao, Pol Pot & other terrible mass murder leaders.
    † No traditional family lifestyle, no holidays, no culture, boring and feeling 'outsider'
    † Atheists are angry, drug additcted and committ the most crime.

    † Most Atheists are uneducated... No Atheists could run for presidency.
    † Atheism brought upon the French Revolution, one of the most evil events of all of history.
    † Atheism cannot explain the origins of the universe, therefore God exists.
    † All atheists believe in evolution, which means they don't believe in morality and think we should all act like animals.
    † The Bible says atheism is wrong, and the Bible is always right (see: Genesis 1:1, Psalms 14:1, Psalms 19:1, Romans 1:19-20)
    † Countries where Atheism is prevalent has the highest Suicide rate & Communist countries = Atheism!
    **Only 2-3% of the U.S. are Atheists/Agnostics VS. over 90% who believe in God (80% Christians) in the U.S.**

    † † Our Prayers goes to Atheists to be mentally healthy and seek their creator † †

    ATHEISTS WILL BURN IN HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE WHERE THEY BELONG AND THEY ALL DESERVE IT AND I CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH FROM ABOVE IN HEAVEN WITH A SMILE WHILE I DANCE ON STREETS OF GOLD WHILE ATHEISTS SKIN BOILS OFF AND THEY CRY LIKE BABIES AND THEIR CHILDREN WILL JOIN THEM

    • Reality

      The Apostles' Creed 2011: (updated by yours truly and based on the studies of historians and theologians of the past 200 years)

      Should I believe in a god whose existence cannot be proven
      and said god if he/she/it exists resides in an unproven,
      human-created, spirit state of bliss called heaven??

      I believe there was a 1st century CE, Jewish, simple,
      preacher-man who was conceived by a Jewish carpenter
      named Joseph living in Nazareth and born of a young Jewish
      girl named Mary. (Some say he was a mamzer.)

      Jesus was summarily crucified for being a temple rabble-rouser by
      the Roman troops in Jerusalem serving under Pontius Pilate,

      He was buried in an unmarked grave and still lies
      a-mouldering in the ground somewhere outside of
      Jerusalem.

      Said Jesus' story was embellished and "mythicized" by
      many semi-fiction writers. A descent into Hell, a bodily resurrection
      and ascension stories were promulgated to compete with the
      Caesar myths. Said stories were so popular that they
      grew into a religion known today as Catholicism/Christianity
      and featuring dark-age, daily wine to blood and bread to body rituals
      called the eucharistic sacrifice of the non-atoning Jesus.

      Amen

      @ "WWJD"
      Why don't you just get off and disappear from these blogs. Your presence hare is obvious, to tear down our testimony. YOU ARE NOT a Christian, and although you may be fooling some, you're not fooling God nor His real people.
      And NO, that's not " What Jesus Would Do", You, creep!

      Butters, it's God's ballpark. Or, do you suppose scientists created all?

      Amen.

      "If atheists are obeying Satan without realizing that they are then why would a just God hold them accountable for that?"
      Because God gave all of us conscience on which is written the knowledge of God, ant to know the difference between right and wrong. He also sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to save us. If we spurn Him, and reject His testimony, we do it knowingly, and by our own will. Jesus Christ faces us with ourselves, exposing who we are. Really, the whole issue in this: who do you say that He is. WHO IS HE TO YOU? On this one issue hangs everything, even the destiny of every human soul.

      WWJD might be a put-on, but every single statement on his list has been posted at one time or another (some multiple times) by Christians on these forums.

      @Frayed Knot
      You said "every single statement on his list has been posted at one time or another (some multiple times) by Christians on these forums"
      Maybe it has been posted, no one can read them all. I can only speak for myself. I know that even though I as a Christian find it necessary to speak raw, un-coated truth, I have no hate, nor have need to be right down ugly. The problem is that majority of people who are anti-christian, twist our words and call us hate-mongers, but they never see themselves to be just that.
      Here are some reasons why I myself speak as I do....
      God doesn't us to "cuddle" rebels. He gives them warnings.
      When Jesus walked dusty roads of Galilee, Judea and other regions of land of Israel, crowds followed Him. He healed many, He delivered many from demonic possessions, and from many afflictions. No one could deny His miracles. He went to seek out poor, to give comfort to the lonely, the broken hearted, the lowly sinner and HEgave hope to the hopeless.
      But for the rebellious, and those who were blind in their self righteousness, but worse off then a lowly sinner, to them He always spoke directly, revealing what was in their hearts.
      That's why the same crowd He fed just short time ago turned against Him and when He was convicted and brought before Sanhedrin, yelled "crucify Him! "
      What caused people who followed Him and listened to Him earlier to turn against Him?...... The same what causes it now, even today, even on these forums!
      He Himself said it WHY in these words:
      " And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” John 3:19-21
      And that's why we speak the truth, withouth sugarcoating it to the ungodly, are hated the same way, and our words are used maliciously against us.
      Christ said it would be so.
      Because He came to this world to convict men of sin, righteousness and judgment. And He exposes what is in human heart. So, when we speak His word, it is not us which you reject, but Him, and when you hurl insults, you do it to Him
      And it is Him that you will have to face and give account to, not us.

      So now, I would like for you to point out where do you find ' hate' in this post?

    "Even the ground itself is weeping for the evil that's' walking upon it,"

    It should be after all the Native Americans Christian murdered to steal their land. Then all the witches the Christians killed that weren't based on facts. Then all the slaves Christians owned to raise their crops Then all the rights they continued to deny women for so long. Yeah...no wonder it's weeping from all the evil of your cult.

      Phony heavensent is always throwing the wrench into the wheels any time a serious issue comes on this blog about how souls are going to fry ... as he/she steals my handle to insure the other fools like him/her get confused to what is sin.

      1st, it is easy to tell when someones name has been stolen, Mkay. No one thinks the real HeavenSent would say that,mkay, so get over it, mkay. You just look like a whiney little baby, "SOMEONE STOLE MY NAME WAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!" Mkay.

      2nd, Matthew 5:22 – and whoever says, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell." Mkay.

  10. Enough!

    And then they say, God is a tyrant for saying He'll judge this evil world?

    If He didn't judge it, He would be a tyrant!

    Even the ground itself is weeping for the evil that's' walking upon it, begging to be delivered from it.

    Thank you Lord that you will not allow this to go on and on and on....

      Your "lord" won't do sh•t because he does not exist. Pray all you want to your imaginary sky daddy you can't stop progress. Its happened throughout history. Cast off the sham that is religion and truly be free.

      If you believe that God cannot be judged, wouldn't that also make him a tyrant?
