    "The foolish one addresses me with words of disgrace, but I hate to respond to him in a similar manner.

    The more ignorant he proves, the more patient I become.

    Just like the incense; the more it's burnt, the more it releases its fragrance
    ."

    Muhammad ibn Idrīs

    al-Shafiʿī (769-820 CE) who established one of the four schools of jurisprudence, the Shafiʿī Madhhab.

    So you have never heard of an Aquifer ?

    Most land areas on Earth have some form of aquifer underlying them, sometimes at significant depths.

    "Aquifers are critically important in human habitation and agriculture. Deep aquifers in arid areas have long been water sources for irrigation. Many villages and even large cities draw their water supply from wells in aquifers.

    The Great Artesian Basin situated in Australia is arguably the largest groundwater aquifer in the world [8] (over 1.7 million km²). It plays a large part in water supplies for Queensland and remote parts of South Australia.

    The Guarani Aquifer with an area of 1.2 million km² is shared by Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay."

    Wasn't there something about patience with the ignorant?

    I am beyond patience. If the anti religion liberals want to believe that the oceans and rivers aren't above ground why argue. If the anti religion liberals want to believe there is no such thing as aquifers, underground rivers or even the existence of wells, why argue.

    Did you mean to say "ignorance"?

    Ignorance is bliss, until one starts climbing out of it. It then serves as a source of pain and suffering until you conquer it. Someone else's ignorance is not my concern until their ignorance is a direct threat to me. At that point, I will not tolerate their ignorance, but respond with force. Turning the other cheek is all fine and good until it gets you killed.

    You know damn well that's not what the ignorant pilgrims in the stone age thought. They didn't even know a cloud was made up of water vapor. That's where the deal about Jesus coming back riding a cloud deal came from. They believed in witchcraft and thought the earth was flat. They fell for magic tricks right and left. They thought when they pointed up that's where heaven was and had no clue that pointing up 12 hours later was pointing in exactly the opposite direction. Very stupid and naive people back then. Very similar to those who swallow that bullschit today.

    Arguing is a waste of my time on this board. There are too many who just use their ignorance to incite, and others who just have to have the last word, and others who just need to slander.

    I like to consider the sources and stay above the fray. [​IMG]
