Yeah anyway..getting back on topic..
Here are some interesting links I found..

http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Pantheon/5061/floods.html

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2001/10/1017_NileCities.html

This may explain why the Sphinx has very obvious water erosion lines, as if it were underwater for a long period of time.

I also find it interesting that the underwater pyramids found off the coast of Japan are estimated to be 8.000 years old.. older than the Egyptian Pyramids. How did they get underwater? The same way mountains form, only backwards. Sudden pole shifts. Did anyone ever calculate how much force is required to tear solid rock and push it thousands of feet into the air? Oh I forgot, that happens over thousands and millions of years. Silly me.

Check the Bible for the original myth on the "Great Flood".

Ok, I'll do it for you. All you have to do is click.

Hey.. what do you know? The Nephilim were in the bible, before and after the flood occured. What a coincidence!

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days-and also afterward-when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

I really should read the bible one of these days, seems like there is a lot more there than meets the eye. Although how anyone is supposed to make any sense of a translation of a translation of a translation I will never know.

Yeah its been twisted and changed so many times that a lot of it doesn't even retain its original form. But most of the stuff that has been changed was stuff that benefits the church, such as taking out Jesus' teachings of reincarnation and meditation, and replacing them with hell and praying. Twisting the words of Jesus has been their main thing in the Bible. A lot of the stories, especially in the Old Testament has retained its original form (for the most part)

Yeah there's a lot of good shit in the Bible, its one of the oldest accounts we have. But to base your whole existance and beliefs on one book, I don't think thats so good. But for the most part, it presents a good set of morals and values to live by, although it contradicts itself innumerable times. But that may be a result of all the editing over the years. I think its a damn good book overall, and if you have much sense you can see through the metaphors and tell the difference between what is bullshit and what was originally there. But that is a book written some 2,000 years ago, written so that people 2,000 years ago could understand, with their slang and everything. God didn't stop talking after the Bible age... there are better books available today, for today's man, written in today's language, same God.

Let me chime in and say that those are not photographs of Venus. They are radar maps taken through the clouds from orbit. In fact, the only true-color photographs taken of the Venusian surface comes from the Russian probe Venera (which lasted about a minute on the surface, though it was designed to last longer). The surface of Venus remains a mystery to science.

But judging by the underwater pyramids, there are plenty of mysteries here on Earth. It's amazing how old they are. Who built them?

I'm beginning to think that there was a technologically advanced global human civilization on Earth about 10,000 years ago during the end of the last ice age. The melting glaciers and rising sea levels have completely wiped off any evidence of its existence. until now.
But think about how we would fare if the sea level rose a few hundred feet. What would remain in 10,000 years? Most of the worlds great cities lie near the ocean. Most of the worlds population lives within a few hundred feet of sea level. Even a slight rise would be a natural disaster like we've neven seen. And like the builders of those pyramids, we would be lost to time. The only ruins standing would be isolated inland cities, only hinting at the grandeur of our great coastal cities, now underwater.

The sad thing is that there might be nothing we can do to stop this. Global warming could very well be a natural phenomena - part of a pattern. Ice cores from the antarctic indicate that there is a regular cycle of ice ages and susequent global warmings.

Of course these events take place in the time frame of tens of thousands of years so there isn't an immediate threat. it makes you think how precarious all of human civilization is. but considering the state of things, I think humanity could use a cleansing.

to get kinda OT, one of my friends mentioned that our "el nino" might be a result of planet x. also i brought up the subject of planet x with my dad and he said that there have been some large changes in the earth's magnetic field recently. he's a nuclear engineer, so i dunno why he knows this but i'll take his word for it.

here is the reason for long term climatic change:

http://www.museum.state.il.us/exhibits/ice_ages/why_glaciations1.html

That is why "global warming" is a political red herring. There is no evidence to suggest that we can do anything to stop it.
We can reduce emissions but we can't alter Earth's orbit.

That is why a global flood has happened in the past and why it will happen again. It's just a matter of time. Kind of funny that people build near the coastline, thinking that the sea level is fixed...

Yeah, and I bet you never heard about the Pyramid and Sphinx structures found on Venus which are exactly the same as the ones on Earth?

Maybe there aren't any pyramids on Venus,

Which is it?

Then once again you try to link up every mystery on the planet. Why not stick with one point and make a strong case instead of using a machine gun approach and bringing in every puzzle that has a piece or two missing? Perhaps because there is no case?

The proof is in the pudding.

Yeah its been twisted and changed so many times that a lot of it doesn't even retain its original form.

And you have the original form so that we may compare it and verify your assessment?

Thank you, infidelGOD for the link and the rational thoughts. I've read recently somewhere that the temperature of the sun has increased and scientists are also observing a warming of the planet Mars (of course this is probably due to the probes sent there by the evil western civilization and has nothing to due with natural phenomena).

Nope I don't seem to have the original Bible on me right now. Darn, must have left it in Israel. I was just stating a fact, the Bible has been changed, numerous times, by the Church.

The Earth sure has been acting funny lately. More and more signs are pointing to a drastic change in the Earth's magnetic field, a massive upsurge of solar flares from the Sun, erratic weather patterns, and general unstable condition unlike anything we have witnessed before. Global warming is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. We could completely destroy all life on Earth with nuclear war or something and the Earth would still be here, and it would still repair itself. Although it may take a long time.

Here is an interesting website
http://www.earthchangestv.com/

Something big is happening on our Earth. And it looks like it has happened before in the past. What can we do? Nothing really. But we have a choice... ignore what is happening, or take it at face value and do what we have to in order to survive.

The sun has been steadily getting hotter and smaller since its birth.

We know of the 11 year sunspot cycle as well as a rotation period of about a month. But there must be longer-period cycles in solar activity that we are not aware of yet because we've only been observing the sun in detail for a few decades.

We can discuss global warming all we want. We can cut greenhouse gas emmisions and save the rainforests and all that (and we should). But it all comes down to the sun. It controls our climate. We are at its mercy.
Did you know that the sun is responsible for the evolution of life. It provides warmth and photosynthesis. But more than that, the "damaging" radiation from the sun causes random mutations in our genes. Mutations that might be beneficial and passed on to the next generation. The sun is the driving force behind evolution.

It's no wonder that the ancients worshipped the sun - long before the false human idols.

In reply to:

There's also no evidence supporting the theory of the pyramids and face on mars, except these obviously natural structures.









no need for sarcasm..

Is it not feasible that it *was* a face, but has since corroded away? And anyway, a face is a face is a face...

This is a face.

Have you ever looked up in the sky and saw the shapes of animals in the clouds? This is the same psychological phenomena. The human mind performs very well at imposing patterns on observations, 'creating' whole images out of incomplete information. This is a very important survival mechanism that has served humans and their ancestors well when having to quickly pick out the form of a camouflaged predator. However, it can also be deceiving (it's better to be alive and deceived than dead and have never perceived a possible danger).

I agree, but all I meant was: Whether of alien or natural origin, there is/was a face there. It's like when people look at crop circles and say "that is fake"...no it's not fake its a damn crop circle. Nevermind i'm just rambling.

it certainly does look like a face... but why in the world would someone/thing purposefully build into rock a face looking skyward?? do we build giant faces of aliens? sure we have things like the sphinx, but it wasn't built facing skyward. besides, that face is a pretty poor piece of art

i do agree that there have been some odd things happening in/to the world lately, though.
