Wikipedia, good or bad?

Wikipedia, a endless source of information, but how accurate is this information? i have noticed that in my school we are not allowed to use Wikipedia as a source for information now. it has to do with the fact that anyone can edit Wikipedia with wrong information. but i have noticed that they need citation and if they don't it gets marked with a (citation needed) thing right by it. so what do you think, should it be allowed to be used for school projects and what not, or baned from that?

Who would a god be without believers?

You could also ask "What would a god be without believers?" (because not all gods are human-like). Lots off people all over the world believe in one or more gods. But what if (and I say if because it isn't very likely) all human beings on this planet would stop believing in there god (or gods)? What or who would a god than be? Would a god than be a funny drawing on a wall or just some guy in a book? Perhaps the new neighbours, the mailman or the birds in your garden were ones your god, until  you stopped believing.  Think, philosophies and give your opinion about this question! I'm curious who or what a god would be without believers according to you.

Use your god given brain

Here is an interesting brain game. God gives it to people twice absolutely free, but if they want to have it for the third time, they have to pay money. What is it? Please, if you want to solve yourself, be careful and do not look at the comments of this post, because someone could have already written the solution there. Good luck!I found that somewhere, and i thought ill add it here, ill see how fast people will figure out what is is ;)The answer is teeth, you have teeth, they fall of and regrow Don't read it or else it will spoil the fun ;)

Agnostics, Atheists, Skeptics -Why DON'T you believe in God?

Ok, Calling all non-believers! I am genuinely interested in why you DON'T believe in a God/Deity/Creator. I will not debate you on this. I am looking for serious answers. Was that the way you were raised? Is it a conclusion you came to on your own? Was your decision based on experiences, books, teachings? NOTE: Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.- Please do not turn this into an argument! If you have serious questions to the RESPONSES, then ask them. If you want to express why you DO believe in God/Gods, go to my "Why do you believe?" forum.

Never mind 2012, everything kicks-off on May 21st (and finishes Oct 21st) http://www.ebiblefellowship.com/may21/ It's got mathematics behind it, but this is what happened last time: despite the fact that he was wrong in his previous prediction of the end of the world. In his book 1994? he claimed there was a very high likelihood that the world would end in September 1994, although he did acknowledge in the book "the possibility does exist that I could be wrong" Anyone interested?

Who's afraid to die?

Ok, This is not really a theological question. It came to mind while thinking of global warming, nuclear holocaust and the Large Hadron Collider. Are you afraid to die? I can only speak from a Christian perspective when I say, "No, of course not!" But I would expect atheists to feel the same way. If there's nothing to look forward to, then there's nothing to dread either. I am afraid of pain, suffering, misery, and the difficulty felt by those left behind, but death itself doesn't really concern me at all. How do the rest of you feel about death?

God save the Queen!

It has been brought to my attention, after many years of being a proud American, that we are all believing a lie. We are all subjects of the British monarchy. Our good people, the conspiracy theorists, whom never have lied to us before are informing us to that fact. Therefore to show my new allegiance to the Crown, I will sing "Rule Britannia" every morning and I will renounce baseball as my favorite sport and I am gladly replacing cricket as my new spectator sport (I still have no idea how the game is played but I will learn sooner or later). God save the Queen! Watch the video!

Believers: Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Etc.- Why DO you believe in God?

Ok believers, I want to know why! WHy do you believe in God/YHWH/Allah/Gods/a Creator? This is not a debate/argument forum. I'm just interested in what got you where you are today (as far as your belief system goes). Note: Atheist, Agnostics, Skeptics- Please do not turn this into a debate. Don't dispute the "why" of someones faith. If you have sincere questions about what someone believes, or how they came to that conclusion, feel free to ask! If you mostly just want to state YOUR case, then go to my other "Why DON"T you believe forum". THanks.

What's Wrong With Evolution?

Right, for all the mud slinger fighting over the whole Religion/Christianity/Creationism vs. Aethiesm/Evolution/Big Bang forum war, here's a simple point/argument (note: for simplification purposes, the term "God" will apply to all religious belifs): Who says "God" didn't create evolution? Who says "God" didn't "create" the big bang? Aren't the similarities between "Let there be light" and "rapid expansion of energy (big bang, light)" a little to hard too ignore? Why does evolution have to be unholy? If the origonal spark of life was provided by "God", wouldn't the life changing and growing still be He/She/It's creation? Why the heck does it have to be six thousand years since the start of the world? I don't think "God" would really care to enlighten us with to much information to quickly, He/She/It would probobly just give us the basics and let us figure the rest out. Bring it on Creation freaks and Evolution diehards, I'm ready for a good long argument with lots of substitute symbols _rocketscientist2015(Oh yah, I'm neutral)EDITSeptember 2008Some how this got dragged up...Anyways, my viewpoints are changed. The world was indeed created by a higher power. He is called The Flying Spaghetti Monster, and many, many years ago he got drunk and crashed into the primordial soup of the universe. He shapethed the Earth into form with His Noodly Appendages, and brought into exsistence Life, the Universe, and Everything.

This discovery has been ranked as 5-Sigma, which means that they are very sure of their results. I'm not a particle physics professor, so here's a video of one explaining this. History being made!

popup flash advertisements

I know instructables needs advertisements to stay afloat, and I'm fine with that.  But that popup flash-ad for san luca, from rovion.com is horrible.  I mean god awful.  It's the type of thing that drives people away from websites, and causes them to install flash-blockers and ad-blockers. When we do that, instructables doesn't get ad revenue, and that's bad. So please, for the love of God, Bob, Steve, or whoever your deity is, get rid of them, so we can support your site by seeing the normal adds, and even clicking on them occasionally.

Good god, it's been ages...

Wow. So today I got bored and came back here after like...a year. Most of you probably won't have the faintest idea of who the hell I am, but that's only to be expected lol. I had a major nostalgia trip and decided to open a drawer and bring back some memories. I sorta scared myself with some of the strange things I had previously created...because they're rather weird to see after all this time o.O I feel like an old person now, so I'll act accordingly. Whadda all y'all kids nowadays d- I can't do this properly. Anyways, what the hell have I missed in the past year? Anything interesting or groundbreaking(After  all this time, what I think to have been cool is probably now a load of steaming crap)?

Prayer Requests

Prayer, the dictionary defines prayer as A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God. I recently went on a missions trip with my dad to Nicaragua and every night my mom would call and talk to me and my dad, I really enjoyed  being talked to and I caught myself thinking ,God enjoys being talked to way more than i do ,though he already knew what your going say and do before you were born.  Prayer is not a quick fix, or a click your heels three times, Prayer works, it wont always be yes. What kind of Father would he be if when his children asked for something, he said yes all the time. If you have Prayer requests for you or someone else, if its a private matter, just say you would like to be prayed for,and me and the prayer team will do our best to pray for you.

Merry Christmas

Hey, very merry Christmas to all you folk. I'd just like to share one of my favorite quotes from "A Charlie Brown Christmas". And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the lord shone round about them, and they were so afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you this day is born in the City of Bethlehem, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men. ~Linus Thanks for an awesome year, and I will be looking forward to more great experiences with all you folks in the coming time. Go in peace, IaC

Floating sparkles

Hi guys! A few days ago I mixed in some sparkles with borax slime (oh, gods, the smell!) and perhaps foolishly assumed that the thickness of the slime would keep the sparkles from settling for at least a month, since they are rather light and all that. Alas, it was not to be. Four days later and most of my sparkles are at the bottom of the jar. Question: Does anybody have an idea or suggestion or anything to keep the sparkles where they are? Thank you!
