  • Reply to: Ancient text found mentioning Jesus could shape-shift   1 hour 28 min ago
    Comment Author: Sharpeelektra

    Jesus may have been just one of several Essene disciples chosen by Our Creator to receive very advanced and profound teachings. If Jesus was able to transform just a few pieces of bread and few fishes into thousands, it does not sound very far fetched to imagine that he could transform himself...Some food for thought...

    This may be kind of a stretch but is Stonehenge and this site the first calculators/computers because they can compute the movements of the sun?   I believe the anarythka mechanism is considered one.. I wonder if the site can calculate more?

    YHWH Allah’s 1st & lst Saints ♥

    Saint Peter: Renamed by Jesus to Peter (meaning rock), his original
    name was Simon bar Jonah; [Mk 3:16] was a fisherman from the Bethsaida
    "of Galilee" [Jn 1:44], cf. Jn 12:21. Also known as Simon bar Jochanan
    (Aram.), Cephas (Aram.), and Simon Peter.
    Saint Andrew: The brother of Simon/Peter, a Bethsaida fisherman, and a
    former disciple of John the Baptist.
    Saint James, son of Zebedee: The brother of John.
    Saint John: The brother of James. Jesus named both of them Bo-
    aner'ges, which means "sons of thunder'.'" [Mk 3:17]
    Saint Philip: From the Bethsaida of Galilee [Jn 1:44] [12:21]
    Saint Bartholomew, son of Talemai; usually identified with Nathanael,
    who is mentioned in Jn 1:45-51.
    Saint Matthew: The tax collector. The similarity between Mt 9:9-10, Mk
    2:14-15 and Lu 5:27-29 may indicate that Matthew was also known as
    Levi.
    Saint Thomas: Judas Thomas Didymus - Aramaic T'oma' = twin, and Greek
    Didymos = twin. Doubting Thomas.
    Saint James, son of Alphaeus: Generally identified with "James the
    Less", and also identified by Roman Catholics with "James the Just".
    Saint Thaddeus: In some manuscripts of Matthew, the name "Lebbaeus"
    occurs in this place. Thaddeus is traditionally identified with Jude;
    see below.
    Saint Simon the Zealot: Some have identified him with Simeon of
    Jerusalem.
    Saint Judas Iscariot: The disciple who later betrayed Jesus. [Mk 3:19]
    The name Iscariot may refer to the Judaean towns of Kerioth or to the
    sicarii (Jewish nationalist insurrectionists), or to Issachar. Also
    referred to as "Judas, the son of Simon." [Jn 6:71] [13:26] He was
    replaced by Matthias as an apostle shortly after Jesus' resurrection.

    The Maronite Christians of Lebanon were loyal allies of the Crusaders, and have fought for two centuries with them against invading Islamic armies. While the exact circumstances of the death of the Maronites mummies are still unknown, most historians claim that they were killed by Mamlouk Turkoman forces right before the final assault on Crusader Tripoli, which the Maronites had helped defend in the past.

    Sorry for your awful experience, Michael.
    If a rich man marries a woman and gives her everything she would ever need, it may occur to him that she only like him because of what he gave her. So he says here's a million dollars you can have but only if you leave. Then, he would know her true feelings.. And she would truly have a choice.

    The theory is that 40 mya new world monkeys (South America) split from old world monkeys (Africa) with the new world monkeys migrating into what is now South America.  It is postulated that these new world monkeys rafted on vegetation or crossed a landbridge.  Some theorists believe they rafted to North America first and then spread from there, however, there is no evidence for this. There may have been a landbridge or a series of islands across the Atlantic now covered by higher ocean levels.  These islands could have acted as “stepping stones.”  At present this is the favored theory.  Further, the Atlantic we see today between South America and Africa was not as wide during the time of these migrations it is theorized.

    Sorry about that Sir, I missed this. In your field of expertise you would know more about this than I. But I guess it would depend on what stage of evolution it might have happened. As an earlier Primate by accident? or at a later stage in evolution with intent looking for less competitive hunting grounds?
