Wait, now you're claiming Jesus is 14 billion years old?

This stuff isn't in any organized religion, is it? This seems 100% kxmode. And an inch away from believing in something like David koresh.

A lot of stuff isn't in any organized religion. Like, for example, God's proper name or the insistence that Jesus is Almighty God, when there are countless verses that state otherwise. However, it's not hard to come to a conclusion when you have both pieces of information.

Bible: (Colossians 1:15,16) He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible

Science: Space.com from Jun 7, 2017 - "In 2012, WMAP estimated the age of the universe to be 13.772 billion years, with an uncertainty of 59 million years. In 2013, Planck measured the age of the universe at 13.82 billion years."

You extrapolate the two to come to a reasonable answer. That's what scientists do.

Typo: changed "he insistence" to "the insistence"

Man, are you dense. Hawking didn't claim to know anything about what happened prior to the big bang. The headline is a lie. As I said before -- Hawking basically implies the question doesn't make any sense.

Hawking did not basically imply the question doesn't make any sense. Go read the article. He's giving plenty of concrete "here's what happened" answers and statements. That implies he knows WHAT happened before the singularity that birthed the universe.

Really? Scientists don't know what "darkmatter/energy/whatchamacallit" is even though the stuff makes up 96% of the -- at present -- known universe. That's a REALLY big unknown variable. I think before he makes such a bold claim, he should try and find out what that elusive nougat is. Or should we simply take his word on faith?

Speaking of which, since we're in faithland, I'd like to state when time began using the Bible.

(Colossians 1:15,16) "He [or Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible,"

Jehovah God did not need "time." Time as a construct only came into existence after Jesus.

It is really something to observe religion attempt to co-opt science, after hundreds of years of fighting it. Almost like a dog licking its own asshole.

It is more about making baseless claims. Dark matter/energy is an 800-pound elephant in the room that continues to baffle scientists, and yet they make claims of knowing what happened before the big bang. Really?! Human's can't predict the future with any level of precision, so how can they predict billion of years into the past with a hulking anomaly like dark matter/energy? Frankly, it is human arrogance. Stephen Hawking's knows a great deal, but when it comes to what happened before the big bang, he knows as much as an ant knows about the weather.

Jesus invented time? That's a new one. How old do you think the world is?

No. Jehovah God created time, remember as a construct, after creating Jesus. From the moment of Jesus' "birth," time moved forward, and measured events in the universe and upon the earth. Even Jehovah God himself follows a schedule. An example of this is found in a common statement by Jesus, "Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father." (Matthew 24:36) Perhaps some form of time existed before Jesus. I do not know, but what I can say is when it started, according to an extrapolation of what the Bible says.

According to proven scientific methods the earth is around 4 billion years old. The universe is around 14 billion; just in case you would like to know how old Jesus is.

Watched two great anime films that I personally recommend.

- Wolf Children (the feels run deep)
- The Boy and The Beast (laughed more than a few times)

Both made by the same studio.

Wouldn't 0 degrees north make the degrees "west" redundant? Seems that it would be at the pole, so it could be 0, 10, or 100 degrees west, and they'd be the exact same place.

Zero degrees north would be at the equator, not the pole, wouldn't it? The pole would be 90 degrees north.

You haven't seen or heard his total disregard for the legal process? He honestly believes he is above it.

I find his lying simply fascinating. I have little doubt he actually believes he is telling the truth during many of his lies, despite many of them being demonstrably untrue. This is what makes the lies pathological. He literally can not stop himself. And he thinks no one will realize he is lying, because he thinks it is normal, he thinks everyone else is doing the same thing.

Those are symptoms of sociopathic tendencies and he's within the spectrum, but to what degree is unknown. He can function within society, barely, so he may well be a "high functioning sociopath."

Although he lacks a normal level of empathy for others, I doubt he is an actual sociopath. You did however forgot to mention that he is:

nihilistic --
1) of or believing in nihilism, or the total rejection of established laws and institutions

pathological liar --
1) a person who tells lies frequently, with no rational motive for doing so.

racist --
1) a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one's own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.

I do not know about those things. I only know what I see and hear. He strikes me as an arrogant, narcississtic, sociopath. Ever seen Sherlock with Bumpersticker Copperplate? Yeah, it is like that personality; minus the solving of crimes and mysteries. Even in the show, Sherlock says he is a "high-functioning sociopath."

Welcome to the political party, pal.

Non-Political observations are non-political. In other words, you can make observations about THE man, wholly divorced from anything political. As a man, Donald Trump appears to be low-class individual irrespective of his wealth.

Arrogant - Having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's importance or abilities.

Narcissistic - Having an excessive or erotic interest in oneself and one's physical appearance.

Sociopath - A person with a personality disorder that manifests itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a weak or lack of conscience. A sociopath lacks empathy, or the ability to stand in someone elses shoes and understand how they feel.

Donald Trump is an arrogant, narcissistic, sociopath. He lacks empathy for anyone but himself as is shown continuously. I want to say the man is a psychopath (his weapon of choice are words, and he wields them with no regrets or remorse), but I don't know if he lacks a functioning conscience. What I do know is that the way in which he talks and expresses himself, including his hour's long tirades on social media, are the symptoms of a man suffering from full-blown sociopathic behavior. Perhaps "suffering" is the wrong word. It would appear he relishes in his power and authority. All I know is he is the most powerful man on the planet. History is rife with people with mental illnesses who have received positions of power. In virtually every situation it never turned out well.

The media turned Get Out and Black Panther's successes into some sort of racial victory. Frankly, the majority watching these films literally didn't care about race. All they want is a good story, good character development, and good special effects (when appropriate). That's it. Everything else is nonsense.

13%, at least, really, really fucking cared about something else.

Also, it's hard to tell if the movie will have those things, and Black Panther's special effects were terrible. People didn't make it the biggest February movie of all time because they felt it would have a good story and good character development. Do you think people expected it to be a better story and better character development than Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Than Captain America: Civil War? Because it blew their opening weekends out of the water.

Dr. Strange was another new, weird Marvel property that recently opened. Black Panther has already made more, in 5 days, than it did in its entire run.

What do you think caused that?

The movie had excellent marketing behind it that pulled in the initial crowds, then word of mouth pulled in more. Also, it's a Marvel film in February. What else is there to watch in February? Exactly. Nothing.
