Re: Great to see so many memberS !
- Nature did not put it in our heads. It came with
the territory. We were the first sentient species on
this planet, we had no predecessor civilisation to
answer our questions, what were our ancestors suppost to
do? They wanted answers but did not have the
capability let alone the resources to answer them on their
own so they made up answers that were "good enough".
At first, man looked to nature, we gave trees,
rocks, and animals atributes that one would give to a
god where we all know that they were nothign more
than animals. As man advanced and founded the first
civilisations, we started merging these animals with humanform,
creating human-animal gods that could take bolth forms.
Eventually, people started using certain gods to invoke
influence over the other gods and at the same time, use the
beleifs of others in these gods for their own political
gain. Eventually, this evolved into Monotheism. The
first known Monotheist religion was amon-ra. It is
likely that Amon-Ra became the yahawea of judeah and
then the God of christianity. Same god, different
atributes, and diferent origins for each culture. This is
how religion evolved in our society. We are now at a
impass in our history. We have evoled to the point that
we can answer most of our questions through science
and technology and physically nolonger require a
religion to survive as a species. Yet, countless millions
refuse to let go of the past, they refuse to accept that
their beleifs are dying. They hope that it is only a
passing but everyone knows that it is only a matter of
time before the entire species wakes up from their
dilusions of grandure and look reality in the face.

doing so is that it reflects the blue tint of the sky downward. Close
up, a mirror coated aircraft will be visible, but only as a distorted
blob. At a distance, that distortion would be negligable. Combine the
fact that the craft reflects the tint of the sky in all directions
(sun reflection goes upward only so it isn't a factor as long as the
craft flies high) and the fact that it absorbs incomming radar, and
shields it's own thermal emissions, such a craft would be very hard
to see indeed.
FYI I am not refering to just mirror polished, I mean literally as
reflecting as a mirror you would see on a wall.
