    Welcome to the Funny Farm.

    Straightjackets on the left and padded rooms on the right.


    FYI, I'm being facetious. I know some deeply religious people and I respect them. I just don't agree with them.

    It's not "people" you are disagreeing with, Jp....

    Let's not head down this road, Art.

    Many have tried and you won't change my mind, either.
    Actually, Bernoulli's principle is not the source of lift. The FAA, a particularly stubborn bunch, still clings to it, as it is still a test question. NASA knows better.

    The point of what I said is that even if you don't know or understand what makes an airplane fly, it still does so.

    It's the same thing, regardless of what you think, sense, feel, or even like.

    It is the only case where self-authentication makes logical sense.

    Art, give it the 100 year test.......if it's not going to make any difference/impact in 100 years.....drop it......my god but you get wound up over %$$^ing nothing......

    How's the aching body this morning Bret...?

    Got a call form someone at my Cancer Center.Oncology want to "discuss" the IVig therapy.

    The Neurologist at UNC lacks any sense of have a personality. I get the felling I'm simply a system that all the other Tech have been have trouble getting fix properly, I question he see his patience as anything other the a broke piece of equipment. This is fine if he can fix the problem,

    I just hope he not one of those arrogant guys who won't ask for help or listen to others because he to busy telling every how he the best.
    If you help others then you are a Success

    Sorry if I'm not up on the latest rocket science.....

    My point is that the principle that makes said airplane fly can be proven, repeatably even if I don't understand it.

    The existence of god cannot be proven once, let alone repeatably and reliably.

    As I said, I have spent considerable time thinking about this and keep coming to the same conclusions.

    Have you read G. Gordon Liddy's autobiography? An excellent read if you haven't.

    Here is what you are missing. Someone can prove that God is God.

    He can.

    Just as you can rely on NASA to be able to explain the existence of lift, God can explain himself. The manner he chooses may not be to your liking, or meet your expectation, but he is able to offer this type of explanation because he does not desire that you choose to follow him based on a proof that YOU would like.

    Instead, he requires that you simply take his word that he is who he says he is, and that what he says is true.

    That way, he ends up with followers who trust him, rather than those who measure him against their OWN standard.

    See the difference?

    Negative on Liddy. My free time is being spent on a renewal of my flight instructor certificates.

    WTF did he just say...???? Did you give us a date when the world is ending too Art, is that what you said....?????
    I think I'll stick to isentropic and adiabatic compressible flow utilizing Bernoulli's theorem, I understand it better than you....

    Thanx JP.....thought I was just too unfistokated to understand......
    BTW.....isn't that 'unproveable to prove' sort of like an oxymoron?

    You doubt, therefore you think. You think, therefore you are. In the same way, God is.
