    Inprisoned inside the cave (Us), prisoners see the shadows on the wall and mistakenly view the shadows as reality. Every now and agian someone awakens to the truth and tries to tell others (Us), but the others respond with anger

  • Will trump ruin our country because he is a huge denier of climate change?

    Best answer: All US presidents are (or have been) climate deniers.
    Perhaps one day we will have one who isn't.

    But there are industries that rely on having climate change (coal oil and gas extraction) and dependent ones (car making)
    So expect no change in the immediate future.

    Best answer: I take issue with the timeframe and the inevitable word of mouth alteration to events.
    11,600 years is a long long time over which facts, data, speculation and musings all change.
    If Plato really did base his knowledge of Atlantis, on word of mouth from his ancestor of six generations before. Then that ancestor learned all this from an Egyptian translator, whom was relating events which occurred more than 11,000 years prior to that, then I would have a hard time ascribing any credibility to the story.

    The landmark is fascinating for sure, but to link it with Atlantis would require significantly more proof than what the presenter offered.

    I don't believe the little fable about the freshwater spring dug by the locals, with all surrounding regions being saltwater either. On that point I would like to see independent evidence and not the wild claim of some guy on Facebook.

    Besides all of this though, we don't know the cause for this feature
    The physics from impact can create all sorts of ordered geographical shape and interesting structure. We don't know whether that was caused by a meteor striking a particular land architecture which gave rise to a compelling formation or due to some other cataclysm.
    If this YouTube presenter can show evidence that it was at least partially man made, then this bolsters his claim to a degree. Yet I see he didn't even attempt to do this.

    This is yet another location someone has pinpointed as the site for Atlantis.
    Based on the countless claims, we might as well grab a map of the world, tack it to the wall and throw a dart. Wherever it lands can be the next site we investigate for evidence of Atlantis.

  • Why isn’t all water recycled. It can be cleaned and reused without pumping from precious aquifers?

    Best answer: Well, it could be recycled in part from our sewer systems. That is actually something that is being considered in some more arid regions. It is not a simple process and not cheap, and there are contaminants such as medicine residuals that are not easily removed, and in such a cyclic use pattern, would see an... show more
    Best answer: Well, it could be recycled in part from our sewer systems. That is actually something that is being considered in some more arid regions. It is not a simple process and not cheap, and there are contaminants such as medicine residuals that are not easily removed, and in such a cyclic use pattern, would see an increasing and circular load (sort of like how the oceans build up salt, if it isn't removed, it builds up).

    On paper, the idea is quite good. Actually making it happen and work properly, well, that is a lot more difficult.

    The problem with groundwater is not in the taking of it, it is in the taking of it are rates that are far higher than the recharge rates. Eventually, you will remove all the stored product. The main problem is that people rely on aquifers in regions where annual precipitation does no create adequate surface water sources for the demands of the people. When there isn't enough water falling to the ground to meet the amount being used, it doesn't matter what reservoir you take from. You will be draining it and eventually have to take water from very far away or do without.

  • What if I completely destroyed nature? What would the Earth be like?

    Best answer: If you completely destroyed nature only you would be left. Humans are part of nature, so the complete destruction of nature by you would leave only you.

    Obviously, you could not achieve this. You would find nature will beat you.

  • If Humans have been "evolving" for MILLIONS of years, why isn't the "CLIMATE" ALLOWED to evolve, too?

    Best answer: The Leftist desire to combat climate change by consolidating power under the federal government, is just that, an effort to consolidate power. That is why they "climate change" battle cry is the same even as it's advocates switch between global warming and global cooling every other decade.

  • Do people know that most or all "rock salt" is really sea salt?

  • Why can't we sense that we're actually standing at an angle on a globe?

    Best answer: 1. The horizon is far enough away that without signs to the contrary it's easy to assume the Earth is flat. After all, if you drop something on hard ground it doesn't roll away from you like it 'obviously' would if you were standing on a curved surface. 2. Gravity's pull on us toward... show more
    Best answer: 1. The horizon is far enough away that without signs to the contrary it's easy to assume the Earth is flat. After all, if you drop something on hard ground it doesn't roll away from you like it 'obviously' would if you were standing on a curved surface.

    2. Gravity's pull on us toward Earth's center is another factor, "up" is the direction perpendicular to the ground rather than parallel to the poles or some other reference. If we try to stand at any other angle, we fall over. So there's no way to go but up.

    3. Even at the equator, where we are traveling about 1000 miles an hour just standing still, everything we can see is moving right along with us, and because of the distances involved (we're a long way from the center of the Earth) the difference in our absolute position from one moment to the next is undetectable.

    Best answer: Absolutely right. Oil doesn't come from dinosaurs, it comes from plants. For millions of years our atmosphere was mostly CO2. Animals couldn't have lived then, only plants, and they grew like the entire earth was tropical rainforest. For literally millions of years the earth was covered with thick vegetation, and layers and layers of dead plants became coal.

    All these plants absorbed all the CO2 and made oxygen, which is poison for plants. Eventually our atmosphere approached 20% oxygen, most of the plants died off, and animal life appeared.

    The current estimation is, the earth moves approx. 15 cm away from the sun every year. That s relative every millennia, based on the distance between sun-earth, and the suns angular momentum. Then the earth should move away exponentially every million-to-million years. Regardless of the suns first presence on the earth. Consider gravity, rotation and distance. Let s consider how close the earth was to the sun 4 billion years ago. Using a very conservative estimate of 15 cm with an exponential rate. The earth is estimated at 4.5 billion years old. The sun - approximately similar time frame. 4 billion years ago, negating the exponential decrease, we would be 600,000 km (372,822 miles) closer to the sun. How could life survive? Estimating the exponential speed we move away from the sun 4.5 Ga. Consider how close we once were, if at all. Consider how much slower/faster the rotation would be relative to the sun s gravitational pull. The earth would burn up or freeze. What about the oceans in centrifugal force? Considering we are in such a short time frame in which life is optimal for existence. Where small values can completely diminish the possibility of existence. There is no "billions" of years the earth would have in order to gain life. Some species have been determined to exist over 3 billion years ago. There s no way. That s not to factor in the absolute insanity of probability, that an organism formed from a chemical soup.
