If you don't find Leviathan for me, can we barbeque your goat? I mean, I sent out the invitations and everything --
@Michael - If Michael can't hook Leviathan, we have a couple of spare 'sea creatures' here in downtown Sydney. The first is at Hawksbury River, said to be first cousin to the Loch Ness monster, and we all know how true that is. It is thought to be 20-30 feet long, so if snared it could feed quite a lot of people. I doubt if anybody has a bar-b-que big enough, but I am sure that can be worked out. It is also part of Aboriginal folk lore, so it must be true.
This sea creature has the most fabulous name of Moolyewonk. The sea creature just may be dense seaweed, as it seems to cast only a shadow, but who am I to say. I think beside a line and very big hook, a trawling net might be advantageous. Then Michael can run up and down the bank, yelling 'There it is', and make a lot of money from telling his story - a win-win situation.
The Aborigines have the best of stories, and pre-date Michael's seven sister myth by thousands of years. I prefer to believe the Aboriginal version, much more interesting.
There are many different versions of this same myth - funny that.
Incorrect, a open cluster is just not as banded together as a closed cluster but banded together nonetheless.
I'll stand corrected on that then, you happen to be correct this time.
Apparently the average lifespan of an open cluster (before it gets pulled apart by outside influences) is in the hundreds of millions of years.
Because Theism is mostly a verbal exercise in self deceit. We feed the monster with our lives, but the wait for dinner in intolerable. 'The wait' = 'theism', not the content.
Watch the SciFi Channel (Paranormal Witness). I know you and Archaeopteryx think the eye wittness recreations are just SciFi because it is the SciFi Channel. I am sure the profit motive has given rise to alot of embellishment, however, I content there may be a grain of true behind some episodes.
Many of the eye witness testimony are from people who formerly completely discounted the supernatural such as yourself. However, bizzare events have scared them out of their wits.
Stay unbelieving my friends.
I strongly suspect, Miguel, that you spend FAR too much time watching the Sci-Fi channel as it it - in fact, I'm beginning to wonder if you aren't a character on MY Sci-Fi Channel!
Now just take your meds, like a good boy, and slip back into bed, and you can come and play with us again another day --
Close your eyes and try counting Philistines!
No, not quite a character from My Sci Fi Channel, but I do live in Hollywood East, home of Screen Gems Studios, where the new Iron Man and Jennifer Anniston movies are being film, and I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express.
Seriously, seemingly credible people from all professions and walks of life appear on this show emotionally shaken from what they have witnessed and with callaborating testimony from other people that have witnessed the same event. I will search the Skeptical Inquirer for its take.
When it comes to the supernatural, eyewittness testimony is all that you will ever have. Even if the blind see, the leper is healed, the lame walk. and the dead rise, there will aways be a contentious scientific explanation.
What makes them "seemingly credible"? Any famous scientists? If it's 2nd or 3rd tier "stars," remember they are professional actors. If they're someone I never heard of, don't make me laugh. The reality shows are populated with attention whores. And I think that show kind of qualifies as a reality show.
You are absolutely right. That is why I want to hear what the Skeptical Inquirer has to say.
And very delicious - a little Ragu, a little garlic bread, a nice salad, and dig in - now that's the kind of worshiping I could get used to.
