    When the moon is in its early crescent phase (as it is today after a new moon cycle) try pointing to the light source. I get a kick out of the Muslims with their crescent and a star where a star is never seen(because the moon blocks it). I call this my divine triangle. Try explaining this 5 to 10 thousand years and they would call you a lunatic and believed you to be affected by the phases of the moon.

    yeah that is pretty silly, too bad their religion doesnt deal with reality like some other religions do like the ones that believe a guy lived in the belly of a whale for a few days or the realistic scenario of a guy building a boat to carry 2 of every kind of animal with all the provisions necessary to feed and take care of them for forty days, those muslims need to inject a little reality into their religious beliefs.

    We all experience the "vastness of Space" every time we read one of Ravi's posts. Why? Cause that is what is between her ears.

    well, clearly you dont know the true story of Jonah
    the bible doesnt say "whale" and since a whale is a mamal and not a fish, it doesnt fit the actual biblical story

    Venus kissing the Moon.....I googled it and got 947,000 hits. Wow!

    I would have thought more of the starfield being occulted by the Moon. But Venus and Jupiter have also been occulted by the Moon. In the divine triangle I've proposed reside the foundations of geometry. Have a peek when you have nothing better to do.
