Is it ever scientifically possible to guarantee the moon will be full on the night of a full moon?

Started by Roman Payne in Reflections on Life. Last reply by A. H. Jessup Apr 8. 1 Reply

I believe that only Aristotle and Plato were smart enough to answer this question:Is it ever scientifically possible to guarantee that the moon will be full on the night of a full moon?(Am I right, or am I wrong?:)So how about this wager, Dear Members... If you write a cultural press-release that we accept as being interesting enough for major news distribution...And we send it to our list of thousands of top journalists and world-class publications around the world...And none of those…Continue

Explaining "Life" - cont'd

Started by Arthur Telling in Reflections on Life. Last reply by Arthur Telling Apr 7. 2 Replies

Life must be a mix of differing vibrations, for a single and steady vibration offers no change, no differences. Imagine a rainbow that is just a single color; imagine the sky and everything as that same color, whether it be white, black, red, anything. This mighty rainbow disappears as does everything within the eye’s view, there being no differences in the color and reflected colors of light. And as the eye is one of the five physical senses, the others senses, too, are revealed through…Continue

Across Great Divides is a timeless story of the upheavals of war, the power of family, and the resiliency of human spirit. When Hitler came to power in 1933, one Jewish family refused to be destroyed and defied the Nazis only to come up against another struggle—confronting apartheid in South Africa. The novel connects two of the 20th century's great travesties: the Nazi occupation of Europe and apartheid in South Africa. The book is a hauntingly beautiful story of faith, family, and redemption,…Continue

In this life

there are thousands of ways

of doing something wrong,

but only a few ways of getting things right

This explains why things go wrong

most of the time

Love Is

Posted by J. Conrad Guest on April 11, 2015 at 3:35pm 1 Comment

“Love is not like a forest fire that burns intensely,

hotly and out of control for a brief moment

until, its expendable fuel spent,

it sputters,

seeking in vain

for something else to consume,

to sustain itself before, finally,

it dies:

cold, black ash

the only evidence of its passing.

Love is, instead, a campfire.

It provides ample warmth and comfort

to those who sit around it.

And although its flames may at times wane,



A World Without Music

Returning from the first Gulf War haunted by horrific images of the body of a marine he brought back from the desert, Reagan seeks refuge from his nightmares and broken marriage in a jazz quartet in which he plays bass guitar.

Fifteen years elapse and he has a one-night affair with Rosary, a young woman he meets at one of his gigs. When his ex-wife Sarah looks into his life, they decide to reunite, and an incensed Rosary decides to exact her revenge.

With help from Tom…

"The answer is yes, within the bounds of the usual meaning of "scientific" and "prove"--a very high probability with a large measure of accuracy. If such a press release were to be composed, where should it be sent?"
