"Lets go defeat this entire culture of giants, measured against which we are the size of grasshoppers.
Quickly, so that they will leave NOT A SINGLE TRACE of their existence. even a few thousand years later."
The only being described as gigantic is Goliath. And he was six and a half feet tall...
There is only one person described as a "giant" (the way we think of the word) in the Bible. That would be Goliath.
The term "giant" was used by the KJV because the Septuagint used the Greek term "Gigantes."
That word didn't mean "giant" in the way the KJV does.
Ferocious tribes of tall...
Physics says you can, if you can garner enough energy - including "dark energy" to create and stabilize a closed timelike curve.
That doesn't mean it will ever happen though. The whole thing is theoretical and I'm a little skeptical of dark energy myself, which would be required to open up the...
Ah, the good old days - when shit flowed in the streets and typhoid was just a breath away.
Not to worry, they would cure you with a series of bleedings.
Myself, I'd go further back - to a time when you could get a haircut and major surgery at the same shop - in the same chair.
Believe it or not, it's true.
Those are actually words, not artwork, and we can read them.
Both are portions of what's called the "Nebty name" for Seti I and for his son Ramesses II, who took over construction of the site (a temple) upon the death of his father.
Ramesses plastered over the royal...
If your asking me if time travel into the past is mathematically impossible, the the answer to that is an emphatic no.
It IS mathematically possible.
It's the dang engineering that's the problem here.
Not knowing how much your HDR will bring. Not knowing that it will work for someone else. "Starting price." "Highest bidder." "Only respond here."
These are things you, as a successful HDR user, would know in advance, if that $20 collection of random cheap electronics was worth anything.
Obviously, they're forgeries. :D
Fake story made up by athiests and planted in ancient jars in the caves of Qumram to counter the TRUE KJV in which he is CLEARLY taller by a couple of feet. :LOL:
You have that backwards.
Fake sausage hustler lip syncing a song by the lord JC (Johnny Cash.)
I didn't proclaim my ideas. I stated facts and backed them up.
If you want my idea in this particular case, it is that David never fought Goliath. It's a made-up story to enhance David's standing - like George Washington and the cherry tree - assuming David ever existed in the first place.
It proves no such thing. It doesn't even provide any evidence of such a thing.
It's an article that makes suggestions about how to deal with a hypothetical time traveler that's trying to use the statute of limitations to escape justice. He suggests changing the laws to account for this, should...
Again, I didn't claim accuracy.
I stated, and clearly, that the oldest versions of the story known to us say that Goliath was a little over 6 feet tall.
Then you said I was throwing around speculation as if it were fact.
What I've shown here is that what I said WAS absolutely factual.
Josephus is forged? The Dead Sea Scrolls are forgeries?
Now it's time for you to point out where I said ANY of this is "accurate."
Maybe it's also time for you to actually read posts you respond to - before you respond to them.
After all, I did:
Welcome to your new universe.
