    Yesterday, TC, Lamsey and I were having a discussion. One leg of the discussion was based around a pool table. I stated that although the cloth of the table appeared to me to be red in colour, I could (if I wished), argue that the table was actually blue, or green, or a cat etc. Thus, in my opinion, I would be correct, even if I were in direct contradiction with the popular opinion.

    Another point was made around immaculate conception. Lamsey and TC both argued that immaculate conception was impossible, I argued that it was possible until it could be disproved. At this point, and this point only, would immaculate conception become impossible. I thought that until something is proven impossible, it is possible. TC and Lamsey argued that until it was proved impossible, it was unknown.

    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    I have a friend who, because of an eye / brain condition sees in 2D. This is not a joke. The world he sees is 2 dimensional, is his reality any less valid than those of us who see it in 3D, not to him.

    Relativity is more important than situation?

    Perception is more important than preconception, any scientist knows that.

    You would be very hard to communicate with and I would certainly not let you pick up a red shirt for me, as you would bring back a cat.

    From a purely biologic perspective:

    Parthenogenesis occurs in lower plants and invertebrates and involves reproduction by development of an unfertilized egg.

    This is essentially what cloners are doing, stimlating eggs to cause them to divide without fertilization.

    Being female, there is no way Jesus could be a male as Mary has no Y chromosome, unless Mary is a chimera.

    As a backdrop, in Greek mythology when someone became pregnant (likely due to infidelity) they would claim that Zeus or some other God came down in the form of Golden Rain and seduced them.

    I think Mary may have been taking lessons from them.




    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    OK, another point, just popped up again.

    I said that if I wanted to, I could say that 1+1 no longer was equal to 2, but infact, in my opinion, 1+1=3.

    In my opinion, I&#39;m correct. In popular opinion (i.e. everyone who believes 1+1=2), I&#39;m wrong.

    well, i would go along with that....as i can demonstrate that dividing 12 by 2, does in fact equal 7.
