Yamada the rock in has gained a lot of respect for a small stone. Also, Chiaki’s teddy bear Fujioka at least in the first season. She talks to it quite often and viewers can only hazard a guess as to whether its reactions are real or all in Chiaki’s Ahoge. The lizard Ellis picks up in episode 3 of El Cazador de la Bruja is hardly an inanimate object, but the only thing it does in the entire series, aside from belch in Nadie’s face, is crawl away in the end. Nevertheless, it immediately became target of wildest Epileptic Trees and gained an affectionate Fan Nickname “Squenchy”. And there is also another matter with the Sniper Cat in the ED video, too Played for horror in Neon Genesis Evangelion , with Asuka’s mother having an Asuka doll that she cradles and talks to, to the exclusion of her own daughter , because she thinks the doll is her real daughter and doesn’t recognize Asuka as being her child thanks to having half of her soul torn from her body to make the second EVA. She then asks the doll to commit suicide with her , despite Asuka begging her mother to let her die with her instead of the doll.

The assumption that the geologic column is a base from which to calibrate the C dates is not wise. With a half-life of only years, carbon dating has nothing to do with dating the geological ages! Whether by sloppiness or gross ignorance, Dr. Hovind is confusing the carbon “clock” with other radiometric “clocks. Being ancient, the C content has long since decayed away and that makes it useful in “zeroing” laboratory instruments.
He who isn’t radical as a youth has no heart. And he who isn’t conservative as an adult has no brain. Or something to that effect, I couldn’t find an original quote, and there are various attributions.
December 18, at 7: I was also born in Everyone that I have viewed the program with recently has been going for their own generation — except for me — I have no idea which generation I fall into so I have been going for either Generation X or Y. My cousin bought the boardgame based on the show — it was OK for him to play because he was born in — so he believes he is definetly Generation Y. He asked me if I wanted a game with him — but I had no idea what Generation to play as… They the TV program say that Generation Y begins from the beginning of the 80s — but that is their own assumption.
Watching the show I can answer questions about Generation X as good as I can answer Gen Y… So yes, I agree, if you are born in — either of those 2 generations will do. December 31, at 9: However, I live in an underdeveloped Caribbean country so me and most of my peers aren’t just like those living in developed countries.
Radiometric Dating and the Geological Time Scale
If you’re new here, be sure to subscribe to Ghost Hunting Secrets for free ghost hunting tips, videos, haunted locations, and other goodies. Many of my subscribers have questions about orbs. Some people question whether orbs are solid evidence of paranormal activity. Other subscribers want to know why orbs appear in many of their photographs. Meanwhile, other subscribers want to know why certain orbs have different colors red, blue , and if there is a meaning to these colors.
So, let’s tackle some of these questions… What is an Orb?
Solar time is a calculation of the passage of time based on the position of the Sun in the fundamental unit of solar time is the types of solar time are apparent solar time (sundial time) and mean solar time (clock time).
Burials have been recorded at a number of excavated henges, both pre-dating the henge and as a result of secondary reuse. Their chronological overlap with older structures makes it difficult to classify them as a coherent tradition. They seem to take the concept of creating a space separate from the outside world one step further than the causewayed enclosure , and they focus attention on an internal point.
In some cases, the construction of the bank and ditch was a stage that followed other activity on the site. At Balfarg , North Mains and Cairnpapple , for example, earlier cremations and deliberate smashing of pottery predate the enclosure. Concentrations of henges occur over much of Britain. Orkney Cunliffe and Wessex Burl have both been suggested as the original provenance of the monument type; however, others remain unconvinced Barclay Unlike earlier enclosure monuments, henges were not usually built on hilltops but on low-lying ground, often close to watercourses and good agricultural land.
Some scholars, such as the editors of the edition of the Penguin Dictionary of Archaeology Bray and Trump, , have claimed that henges are unique to the British Isles. They state that similar, much earlier, circles on the Continent, such as Goseck circle which has no bank in any case , and later ones such as Goloring are not proper “henges”. But The Penguin Archaeological Guide Bahn, does not comment on geographical locations for henges. Excavated henge ditch on Wyke Down Dorset.
The ditch was originally dug as Causewayed enclosure and may therefore not be a henge.
How Good Are Those Young-Earth Arguments?
On a few occasions, I have written to these men to interact with them, but they have not written back. Sylvia Dear Sylvia, Do you have a pantry? A pantry to keep track of all the lovely ladies who may have caught their eyes while browsing. Being put on a hot list is better than not being put on a hot list, but, in and of itself, the gesture means very little.
You go on Match. This registers in our brains like this:
I have been dating a man for about 5 months and everything is pretty good. He was married for 10 years and has been divorced for about 2. His ex still gives him a hard time, but he says that he has moved on.
And the faster she accelerates, the more frantic you get, watching her willingly and confusingly speed towards the chasm. I went there to save some lives — and took quite a beating for doing so. And after an interview I did with her last week for her audio series, we engaged in an email dialogue about one of her signature concepts: The definition on her site is benign: You accept the date with the man who calls first, and do not shuffle times or even think about manipulating the schedule in order to get dates with the man you like best, or dates to the most fun places.
It is not about finding Mr. Where this concept of Circular Dating breaks down for me, however — the reason I wanted to guest blog on her website — is this idea: You hear that sound? Believe me, I understand the emotion behind Circular Dating. All you have to do is read this blog to know that I am intimately familiar with the frustrations and fears of women. My argument against circular dating centers around only one simple premise: Just dump him and find the man who treats you well and ultimately wants a commitment.
And yes, it is that simple.
Why Does Ancient Art Contain Depictions Of Flying Aircraft, Helicopters And Dinosaurs?
Ancient Greece Ancient Greece was the birthplace of Western philosophical ethics. The ideas of Socrates c. The sudden flowering of philosophy during that period was rooted in the ethical thought of earlier centuries. In the poetic literature of the 7th and 6th centuries bce, there were, as in other cultures, moral precepts but no real attempts to formulate a coherent overall ethical position.
The Greeks were later to refer to the most prominent of these poets and early philosophers as the seven sages , and they are frequently quoted with respect by Plato and Aristotle. Knowledge of the thought of this period is limited, for often only fragments of original writings, along with later accounts of dubious accuracy, remain.

Start at the base of the water tower. There is an overgrown footpath inside a narrow line of trees leading away perpendicular to the A You must use this path because the adjacent fields are private. It is quite overgrown see picture 2 , but should be navigable by most. Follow it until you emerge, continuing straight ahead until you come to a fenced off pond.
Immediately before the pond, turn left and head along this track for approximately metres, coming to a T-junction of tracks. Turn right and follow this track, passing a partially ruined building on your right, until you come to a road.
Creation vs. Evolution
Primary source references As a preface to this document, I want to point out that it is a shame that we have to continue to refute the same arguments that evolutionists keep bringing up over and over again in their attempts to argue against the fact of creation, which fact has been well established since the day the earth was created ex nihilo several thousand years ago.
It is also a shame that the masses have bought all this based on some circular reasoning about fossils, where fossils tend to be found buried, similarities between various life forms, the presence of certain decay products in rocks, and other inherently speculative arguments about the past, based on phenomena that exist in the present.
If I hope to accomplish anything, it will be to simply encourage critical thinking. One must get past the arguments ad populum that its popularity counts for something , ad hominem that if you attack the person making the argument, this counts for something , and especially ad baculum that there are people who have the clout to decree it as true , to ask the key questions and challenge the unsubstantiated assumptions and thinking of those who would hold to the evolution position.
When does Gen X end and Gen Y begin? There was a comment on a blog I was reading yesterday (sorry forgot which blog) asking what is the dividing time between Gen X and Gen Y.
Acknowledgements Introduction his document discusses the way radiometric dating and stratigraphic principles are used to establish the conventional geological time scale. It is not about the theory behind radiometric dating methods, it is about their application, and it therefore assumes the reader has some familiarity with the technique already refer to “Other Sources” for more information. As an example of how they are used, radiometric dates from geologically simple, fossiliferous Cretaceous rocks in western North America are compared to the geological time scale.
To get to that point, there is also a historical discussion and description of non-radiometric dating methods. A common form of criticism is to cite geologically complicated situations where the application of radiometric dating is very challenging. These are often characterised as the norm, rather than the exception. I thought it would be useful to present an example where the geology is simple, and unsurprisingly, the method does work well, to show the quality of data that would have to be invalidated before a major revision of the geologic time scale could be accepted by conventional scientists.
Geochronologists do not claim that radiometric dating is foolproof no scientific method is , but it does work reliably for most samples. It is these highly consistent and reliable samples, rather than the tricky ones, that have to be falsified for “young Earth” theories to have any scientific plausibility, not to mention the need to falsify huge amounts of evidence from other techniques. This document is partly based on a prior posting composed in reply to Ted Holden. My thanks to both him and other critics for motivating me.

The history of Western ethics Ancient civilizations to the end of the 19th century The ancient Middle East and Asia. The first ethical precepts must have been passed down by word of mouth from parents and elders, but as societies learned to use the written word, they began to set down their ethical beliefs. These records constitute the first historical evidence of the origins of ethics.
Ancient Greece Ancient Greece was the birthplace of Western philosophical ethics. The ideas of Socrates c. The sudden flowering of philosophy during that period was rooted in the ethical thought of earlier centuries. In the poetic literature of the 7th and 6th centuries bce, there were, as in other cultures , moral precepts but no real attempts to formulate a coherent overall ethical position.

Knowledge of the thought of this period is limited, for often only fragments of original writings, along with later accounts of dubious accuracy, remain. He appears to have written nothing at all, but he was the founder of a school of thought that touched on all aspects of life and that may have been a kind of philosophical and religious order. In ancient times the school was best known for its advocacy of vegetarianism , which, like that of the Jains, was associated with the belief that after the death of the body, the human soul may take up residence in the body of an animal see reincarnation.
Pythagoreans continued to espouse this view for many centuries, and classical passages in the works of writers such as Ovid 43 bce—17 ce and Porphyry — opposing bloodshed and animal slaughter can be traced to Pythagoras. This term was used in the 5th century to refer to a class of professional teachers of rhetoric and argument. The Sophists promised their pupils success in political debate and increased influence in the affairs of the city.
They were accused of being mercenaries who taught their students to win arguments by fair means or foul.
