Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

                Great footage of the Air Force assembling, stacking, and launching the Delta II, Titan II, Titan IV rockets.

                FYI: most of these are NRO spy satellites.

                      As a kid, I used to love the Zyblat:-

                      I know it's make out, but I used to dream about that one.

                      For reality, nothing can go past:-

                          "When the Western world accepted Christianity, Caesar conquered; and the received text of Western theology was edited by his lawyers…. The brief Galilean vision of humility flickered throughout the ages, uncertainly…. But the deeper idolatry, of the fashioning of God in the image of the Egyptian, Persian, and Roman imperial rulers, was retained. The Church gave unto God the attributes which belonged exclusively to Caesar."

                          — Alfred North Whitehead

                            Kelly Johnson was one the greatest geniuses the world has ever seen.

                            Now we don't use aircraft's for reconnaissance hardly at all, and the NRO launches satellites aboard the heavy-lifts instead.

                              It's amazing what he accomplished without Autocad, "Big Blue", Cray, High Tech Wind Tunnels like we have today ... he just "saw" what the plane needed to look like, and knew how to make that happen.
