              1 Corinthians 3:19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

              1 Corinthians 2:9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

                  The conversation becomes political when the topic of climate comes up. Trump won get over it.

                    3:30 YESSSSS!!!! This is what a lot of people today don’t think about. It’s not that people are born smart, it’s that they worked hard to gain the knowledge they have.

                        When climate change deniers think of a recipe for solving the lack of clean water they probably think:

                        1 cup of water.

                              One last question for anyone to answer...
                              Will life vanish to non-existence?
                              Since it hasn’t been concrete on how it started can we imagine how it’s going to end or will it simply transform.??

                                the1804warrior there are theories as to how the universe will end. Big rip, big freeze, Big Crunch, big slurp, or maybe a black hole but the first 4 are the main theories

                                  Would you live forever if you could? Yes! Good answer for the desire of World of Asiyah is life acceptance of the physical body and physical world... Divine service is acknowledgement of and submission to the supreme authority of Havayah therefore called "accepting the yoke of Heaven."
                                  which is reasonably understood as the intent of man to commit himself to G-d and the study of Torah and fulling good deeds in service of Havayah and for the good of himself, others, and G-d who bestowed upon their Human Unified G-dly Soul the breath of life with the “breath of His mouth”. As it is the Divine Desire of Havayah for humanity to live and utilize his gift of the “breath of His mouth” so also is it His Desire for man to utilize the Seferot Powers he was given in order to thrive and have a part in the World to Come.

                                        Neil could have answered Larry's question about belief and objective truth like this:
                                        Objective truth is what is the truth independently if you believe it or not (this he said)
                                        Example: You can be listening to music on a sunny day. In your belief system, its not raining. But while you were listening to music (judging you cant see the weather or cant see the outside of your house), it starts to rain.
                                        Your belief that its sunny, wont make the rain go away. The rain is the objective truth, it is raining wether you believe it is raining or not.

                                          Science isn't science without observation, conviction and action. Faith built this country along with simple instinct and the need for economic prosperity. Faith in that divinity has always been involved with the development of this country i.e. E Plurubus Unum. Cows farting is not the reason for global climate change. If anything it's too many weeds in the garden, mainly in the eastern part of the world. There's simply too many humans worldwide with those simple but shared traits and our history always outweighs our future.

                                            I have a question since it seems like gravitational pulls hold everything in place and I would imagine the mass of the planets have a lot to do with their gravitational pulls. If we go back to the beginning of everything when the sun was brand new how much has it changed in mass since that point? As the sun burns and changes in Mass would that also cause changes in the gravitational pool which would also cause changes in the locations of the planets which could also very well be affecting climate on the Earth and ultimately the other planets. It seems to me like small minds trying to explain very big things but they have no concept of. I don't really understand how you can explain something that you've never actually been there to see it's all theory. If one piece of your theory is wrong it's all wrong. Anyway I believe climate change is an external thing that happens just like people age so does everything else and when they age they change same as the climate. there's nothing we can do to reverse it stop it or change it it's just going to do what it's going to do regardless of anything we do.

                                                          Why is this term still used. Australia, NZ, South Africa were not 'founded' or 'discovered', there were lots of people already there.

Our star and the normal evolution of our planet is causing these changes! Before the last Ice age. Our planet had over ten times the co2 in that atmosphere ,then it does now! Explain that! Look to some small extent human may cause damage to certain ecosystems. Deforestation of our rain forests for instance. But it is Foley to believe that we Humans in our infinite arrogance can change an entire planet in its 3 billion year history!

                                                                                  The point is despite the fact that Larry is in front of one of the most amazing minds of our time, he still defers to racial stereotypes as if that has any relevance, unless he's speaking to a different audience
