    Ok, I think I'll throw in my opinion!

    War. . . Sure, it sucks, but can it be avoided? No, it is something we have to live with in the age. Maybe in some thousand years when everyone is educated enough, maybe.

    The picture, well, I've seen that picture before, from the Gulf War, nothing new.

    I agree with the ideas of new power source, BUT! think of what might happen. First we can't swtich over night and it will EXPENSIVE! Second, The mideast relies on oil, that is what keeps some of those countries somewhat above water. With no money coming in, what will happen? They will far into more shit.

    Isereal has been there for a long time, not as Isereal, but as jewish tribes and what not from when the revolted against the Roman Empire in the first century AD and when the Christian riots arose. At this point it seems impossible to do much to quell what is happening there in Isereal. You have religious fanaticals on both sides, and neither side is listening to each other, they only respond to violence with violence.

    Dapok, The US is evil for going into the middle east? Look at the Brit's, they have been conquering people for longer than the US has been a Nation. The Roman Empire enslaved the people the conquered, but not under all consuls or dictators. Russia and all it's satilite states? China the Fa'long(SP) cult. India and Pakistan? LAtin America?

    did i say us was evil for going there? also i dont believe in the world evil, bad is the opposite of good (for me) i hate the conquests of the brits, especially the one on america. i never said we can avoid war, we can't at this point in time (not with our intelligence). i'm just against it. it's sad that people still have to resort to mass violence to "solve" things

    "explain time is only an illusion" for others except dapork u might wanna just scroll ahead.

    what if the passage of time was our (mind,brain,sould,spirit) inability to percieve everythin all at once. imagine its only you in your own little universe and everything is already set out for you. all you need to do is choose the path. so the future is what you wish to percieve. and so there are an infinite number of universes which are your life. and in each universe everything is still. no motion. and so as your "spirit" goes along thru this you see the illusion that things move and that time passes. its like a flip book.. youi flip thru it fastely and it looks like the "bird" is flying. but on each page it is still. its the same with all these infinite universes. everything is still but when you go thru it it seems your moving. you can choose what you want your future to be but you cannot go back and change your past. the scary part of this tho is that theres can only be one real "soul" for thie infinite set of universes. because then who would have control of what happens? you would have conflicts. so there may be different groups of these "infinite universe set" with a soul each, that mean all your friends are not "real"

    That's based on the theory of multi-universes which is solely a theory and nothing more. The book, "Timeline", my Michael Crighton actually deals with this.
