    You do not have to deal with this problem. You do not have to feel this way. There is help, I promise. Remember that this is just a passing feeling that you won’t consider tomorrow or in a few days. Don’t let your mind go there and accept suicide as an option. There are too many other choices available that will help and heal you. My brother took his life 5 years ago because he thought there was no meaning,hope or happiness. But there was and I wish I knew then what I know now because I maybe could have helped him, but I will reach out to you instead. What our family has had to endure is a hell that I would wish on no one. Least of all my children. Because of his traumatic and senseless death I now have a severe panic disorder now that is somewhat treatable with medication. I couldn’t imagine how I would feel if it had been my dad. She will feel that you didn’t love her. She will think that she did something to cause your suicide. She will wonder what she could have done to help you so you would have lived. These feelings will NEVER leave her. She will mourn everyday of her life not only for your absence but also for the way it came about. SHE will live with YOUR decision for the rest of her life. A life that will be jaded and full of depression and regret. Please talk to someone. You may not like the idea but it doesn’t have to be this way. You CAN get better. I will tell you what has gotten me through the darkest of my days when I have felt like you do, surrender all of your worries and problems to the Lord and he will take that burden. Completely and utterly surrender and put it all in God’s hands and he WILL help you. I will pray for your healing and for you to have strength to deal with this. You WILL be okay. You WILL be happy again. Many hugs and prayers for you.

    Some insightful spew from the Earth Charter...

    16. Promote a culture of tolerance, nonviolence, and peace.
    a. Encourage and support mutual understanding, solidarity, and cooperation among all peoples and within and among nations.
    b. Implement comprehensive strategies to prevent violent conflict and use collaborative problem solving to manage and resolve environmental conflicts and other disputes.
    c. Demilitarize national security systems to the level of a non-provocative defense posture, and convert military resources to peaceful purposes, including ecological restoration.
    d. Eliminate nuclear, biological, and toxic weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.
    e. Ensure that the use of orbital and outer space supports environmental protection and peace.
    f. Recognize that peace is the wholeness created by right relationships with oneself, other persons, other cultures, other life, Earth, and the larger whole of which all are a part.

    In order to build a sustainable global community, the nations of the world must renew their commitment to the United Nations, fulfill their obligations under existing international agreements, and support the implementation of Earth Charter principles with an international legally binding instrument on environment and development. http://www.earthcharterusa.org/earth_charter.html

    Big Media Won't Touch Agenda 21

    I keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting for Bill O’Reilly or Shaun Hannity or Oprah Winfrey or somebody…..anybody, who has daily access to the multitudes, to say the words, “Agenda 21.” I’m still waiting, and for the life of me, I don’t understand the refusal to talk about the greatest threat to America that has ever existed. However, it dawns on me that wrapping a brain around Agenda 21 requires time, effort, interest, and a lot diligence. No one told me about Agenda 21. I found it by accident on the Internet. Then I went to the U.N.’s website and read Agenda 21. From there I went to Buenos Aires, The President’s Commission of Sustainable Development, my local sustainable development commissions and planners, to local visioning commissions, ecology conglomerates, and then back to the U.N.. After about six months of reading about a whole lot of global, national, and philanthropic organizations, I started documenting and keeping running lists because, I discovered, Agenda 21 was huge, highly developed, and a done deal. “How is it,” I asked myself, “that in 50 years, I never heard of any of this before? Where were my trusted newscasters? And why hasn’t my President, or the previous Presidents, ever talked about Agenda 21, the meetings in Buenos Aires, and Agenda 21’s connections to the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and a thousand other global organizations?”

    So, I kept researching the Net. And lo and behold, I finally realized that Agenda 21 would never be publicized to Americans. It really can’t be.

    As my running lists were now becoming encyclopedic, I also realized that there was no way to explain Agenda 21 easily. It’s too big, profoundly sophisticated, intentionally masked and hidden by corporate agendas and ecological ideologies that are, themselves, exploited by corporate agendas. But more than that, I realized that for Americans to understand Agenda 21, they would have to come to terms with a truth that, I fear, they won’t believe. What would that truth be? Let me try to say it in one sentence: Agenda 21 is the end of America.

    As I read that sentence I think, “Well, Nancy, now everyone is going to think you are an extremist and no one will believe anything you say from now on. Everyone knows there can be no end to America….”

    Here's more UN infiltration into US sovereignty...

    UN Threatens to Trump US Land Policy

    The ITTA, a U.N. measure the United States signed July 1, 1999, and accepted Nov. 14, 1996, created an organization that controls the world’s production (and consumption) of timber. The agreement, overseen and administered by the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development, labels nations as either timber producers or consumers and allots voting quotas based on levels of production versus consumption – with more voting weight granted to the former. The United States, a consumer, therefore does not possess the same ability to control - via ballot - the application of this agreement, as many of the producing nations do (e.g. Indonesia or Malaysia).

    UN plans to release untapped wealth of $7 trillion (and solve the world's problems at a stroke)

    The most potent threats to life on earth - global warming, health pandemics, poverty and armed conflict - could be ended by moves that would unlock $7 trillion - $7,000,000,000,000 (£3.9trn) - of previously untapped wealth, the United Nations claims today.

    The price? An admission that the nation-state is an old-fashioned concept that has no role to play in a modern globalised world where financial markets have to be harnessed rather than simply condemned.

    In a groundbreaking move, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) has drawn up a visionary proposal that has been endorsed by a range of figures including Gordon Brown, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Joseph Stiglitz, the Nobel Laureate.

    It says an unprecedented outbreak of co-operation between countries, applied through six specific financial tools, would slice through the Gordian knot of problems that have bedevilled the world for most of the last century.

    If its recommendations are accepted - and the authors acknowledge this could take years or even decades - it could finally force countries to face up to the fact that their public finance and growth figures conceal the vast damage their economies do to the environment.

    At the heart of the proposal, unveiled at a gathering of world business leaders at the Swiss ski resort of Davos, is a push to get countries to account for the cost of failed policies, and use the money saved "up front" to avert crises before they hit. Top of the list is a challenge to the United States to join an international pollution permit trading system which, the UN claims, could deliver $3.64trn of global wealth.

    Inge Kaul, a special adviser at the UNDP, said: "The way we run our economies today is vastly expensive and inefficient because we don't manage risk well and we don't prevent crises." She downplayed concerns over up-front costs and interest payments for the new-fangled financial devices. "The gains in terms of development would outweigh those costs. Money is wasted because we dribble aid, and the costs of not solving the problems are much, much higher than what we would have to pay for getting the financial markets to lend the money."

    The UNDP is determined to ensure globalisation, which has generated vast wealth for multinational companies, benefits the poorest in society.

    It urges politicians to embrace some groundbreaking schemes put in place in the past 12 months to tackle global warning, poverty and disease, based on working with the global markets to share out the risk.

    These include a pilot international finance facility (IFF) to "front load" $4bn of cash for vaccines by borrowing money against pledges of future government aid.

    The scheme, which is backed by the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, was born out of a proposal by Gordon Brown for a larger scheme to double the total aid budget to $100bn a year.

    In an endorsement of the report, Mr Brown said: "This shows how we can equip people and countries for a new global economy that combined greater prosperity and fairness both within and across nations."

    The UNDP says rich countries should build on this and go further. It proposes six schemes to harness the power of the markets:

    * Reducing greenhouse gas emissions through pollution permit trading; net gain $3.64trn.

    * Cutting poor countries' borrowing costs by securing the debts against the income from stable parts of their economies; net gain $2.90trn.

    * Reducing government debt costs by linking payments to the country's economic output; net gain $600bn.

    * An enlarged version of the vaccine scheme; net gain (including benefits of lower mortality) $47bn.

    * Using the vast flow of money from migrants back to their home country to guarantee; net gain $31bn.

    * Aid agencies underwriting loans to market investors to lower interest rates; net gain $22bn.

    Professor Stiglitz, the former chief economist of the World Bank and a staunch critic of the way globalisation harms the poor, said: "Globalisation has meant the closer integration of countries, and that in turn has meant a greater need for collective action.

    "One of the most important areas of failure is the environment. Without government intervention, firms and households have no incentive to limit their pollution." He said a global public finance system would force countries to acknowledge the external damage their policies had, "the most important being global climate change".

    Solving the environmental crisis tops the UN's $7trn wish-list. It calls for an international market to trade pollution permits that would encourage rich countries to cut pollution and hit their targets under the Kyoto protocol.

    But - and the UN admits it is a big "but" - the US would have to sign up to Kyoto and carbon trading to achieve the $3.64trn that it believes the system would deliver over time.

    "We are dealing with a global problem as pollution can only be dealt with internationally," Ms Kaul said. Richard Sandor, the head of the Chicago Climate Exchange, added: "Many encouraging signs are emerging. When the business case is clear, private entrepreneurs step forward."

    But, the proposal is unlikely to get support from some green groups who believe that action to curb consumption, rather than market incentives, are the way to reduce carbon emissions.

    Andrew Simms, director of the New Economics Foundation, said it left unanswered questions over how these markets would be managed and how the benefits and costs would be distributed. "We have nothing against markets so it would be missing the point to get into a pro- or anti-market stance. The point is how you distribute the benefits."

    Viruses don't randomly insert their gene sequences into host DNA. There are specific locations where the viral genetic material is inserted. Since chimps and humans (some more than others) are so similar, the parts of the genome where viral genes can be inserted are similar, if not the same. Again, you (evolutionists) are applying your conclusion to what you see. Your evidence shows nothing more than that the ERV sequence was inserted in both chimps and humans in the past and is now part of our permanent genome. This doesn't show a common ancestor organism either; that's a leap. No gene sequence in the genome does so, even retrovirus genes inserted into genome. Almost every human in the world has been infected by a herpes virus and carries it genome its own, but that by itself doesn't scream common ancestor. I know a herpes virus isn't an ERV and that its incorporation into our genome is different from that of ERV and its supposed role in protecting an unborn baby from maternal immune attack, but you get my point. Go far enough back and have enough chimps and enough humans "infected," and you end up with chimps and humans having the ERV sequence in their genome. Your "evidence" is inference. If you want something bad enough, you'll find a way to fit everything you see into that paradigm. This isn't proof.

    You said, "No there isn't. The experience of things falling down is NOT a confirmation of the present theory of gravity."
    There's no better explanation for the experience of things falling down. If the theory of gravity is not responsible, what theory would you put forward? The last thing about gravity, so we can get back on the topic, the theory of gravity isn't even taught as a theory. It's just taught. Why? Because it makes sense. Evolution doesn't. Not because I don't get it. I do. I understand it. But it can't explain the origins of the species.

    You said, "*The* species?"
    Why the asterisks? I don't get it? Yes, "the species." There's no grammatical mistake using a definite article with species. Don't you say "the trucks." If that's not your point, be more specific.

    As far as your "proofs."
    1. See what I posted about the DNA sequence
    2. The fossil record. Two things. The amount of fossilized remains found is only the smallest fraction of species purported to have existed. Though there is science and skill in finding them, most of it is random. Without a more complete fossil record, I can't see how it's possible to make anything more than the most base generalizations. With the fossil record found, evolution tries to look at two similar fossils and says this one species turned into that one. As with the DNA evidence, this is pure inference. There is no way to say that. Just because fossil species one is found in one time period and fossil two found in another means nothing. If maybe you had a couple of million of fossils of each, that would be different. But if you only have a handful of fossilized remains for a species, when millions of that species existed, you can't date them exactly. Without using dates, what proof would you used to say this fossilized specie evolved into that one? Similarity? That can't prove anything. Also, as some pretty significant fossil findings (example, some of the more recent "feathered" dinosaurs)used to support evolution have turned out to be misinterpreted or just fake (google it yourself, I want to keep this as short as I can).
    3. Evolutionist say that since bats & people & seals have the same number of bones in their appendages, they must have come from a common ancestor. Again, inference. I could go into more about why this exists this way.
    4. Evolutionists say what about mitochondria. For cells dependent on more than glycolysis for ATP production, the mitochondria is likely the most important component of the cell outside of the nucleus. It is the organelle that carries out metabolic respiration. It has its own circular stranded DNA like a bacteria that replicates on its own when the rest of the cell does, so people say the cell must have evolved with captured bacteria that also evolved into mitochondria. That's silly just by itself, that they would BOTH happen to evolve together over thousands or millions of years (how long do cells live?) in a way that would allow them both to exist together as a single cell. Isn't it more likely that as the most important organelle outside the nucleus, it should have its own DNA so it can make its proteins necessary for metabolic respiration ON SITE. Doesn't it also make sense that if it has its own DNA, it would replicate along with the rest of the cell. Does to me. By the way, its the mitochondrial DNA (which we inherit from our mothers) that allows scientists who also support evolution to say that humans all descended from a single mother (see the mitochondrial DNA Eve theory).
    5. Evolutionists also say if we were created by intelligent design, the creator must not have been too intelligent or we would be better made. They point to the flaws of the eye. The point is, the eye is made as good as it can be & still function as a part of the human body. If it were its own organism, then maybe it could be what those criers call perfect. In fact, our bodies (and all life) is so intelligently designed that evolutionists call it the most amazing machine ever created.

    Also, don't forget this:
    1. mathematics & statistics shows you can't get order out of chaos. For this, you can't get more highly complex organisms out of the chaotic happenings of natural selection.
    2. Chance can't be responsible for anything. Chance is just a term used in statistics. Chance can't cause anything. Chance doesn't make the penny land on heads or tails, it just helps predict the statistics of which it will land on.
    3. While still on chance, when figuring the chance that a penny will land heads-up 10 times in a row, you have to multiply the chance it will do so once (1/2) by itself 10 times (1/1024). What's the chance that enough genetic changes would occur to evolve a bacterium into even a protozoan with organelles & a nucleus, much less a human, even if you allow for billions of years. All the evolutionary progress made in the first million years is more statistically likely to be erased by a lethal mutation than furthered by a helpful mutation.
    4. Evolution can't explain something as fundamental as sex. Within a species, one organism has to mutate into a male & another has to mutate into a female, in such a way that it happens in both where they can sexually reproduce fertile offspring. But before they can sexually reproduce, they have to evolve haploid tissue within their diploid bodies in order to produce gametes that allow fertilization to take place. Give me a break!
    5. Last for now then got to go (Christmas season, you know):
    If you're walking down the beach & see an undulating pattern in the sand, you'd say it was caused by repeated wave action during high tide. If you were walking down the beach & saw in the sand "Joe Loves Jane," you'd be an idiot to attribute it to the repeated random actions of waves at high tide and not to an intelligent creator.

    "Is the theory of gravity propaganda? Tell that to yourself the next time you trip and fall. How about the theories on inertia, mass, and motion? Propaganda? Doesn't seem to be when you stub your toe in the middle of the night."

    There's phenomenal evidence we experience every second that make the theories of Gravity, Mass, etc. the most plausible causes behind those forces. Evolution is not the most plausible theory for the origins of the species. The "proofs" are circumstantial where they're not pure inference. Furthermore, there is plenty of evidence, logical conclusions and inconsistencies in the theory that stand against evolution.

    DNA evidence doesn't prove anything on its own. It's often said since the genetic code between different organisms is so similar then there must be a common origin. That's not true. DNA codes for proteins. Many proteins are not specific to one specie, but are found in many species. If the protein has the same function in those different species, then the DNA sequence that codes for that protein would only need to be slightly different between species - different enough to allow the protein to retain its 3-D spatial functionality for different species' body temps, metabolic needs, etc. Carbonic anhydrase is often used as an example. Its the enzyme that converts carbon dioxide to carbonic acid, which is basically the perfect physiologic buffer. How many different ways can there be to turn carbon dioxide to carbonic acid? Not too many, therefore, a more-or-less common carbonic anhydrase enzyme to all species, which only has to be different enough to account for each specie's physiologic conditions. If the enzymes are basically the same, then their amino acid sequence is going to be basically the same. DNA codes for the amino acid sequence, thus the DNA sequence being so similar. This works for all proteins, and the main differences between species' genetic codes (besides what's mentioned above) is for specie-specific proteins. You're looking at genetic differences between species and applying a conclusion to it that supports your point - not drawing your point from what is there. Inference is not fact.

    "Theory is the goal of science; you don't move on from theory to a higher level.

    So Evolutionist believe in an unproven theory made up by a finite Human brain? Kind of like the theory that the Earth was the center of the Solar System? Evolutionist's offer no proof, only opinion, and yet want people to accept Evolution and then have the gall to to make fun of people who have faith in a higher power when you have nothing but faith in a chance and a theory!

    "That's because evolution is based upon actual science and belongs in science classrooms."

    If Evolution is based upon actual science then why is it still considered just a theory? Because it CAN'T be proven in factual science. Theories should not be taught as facts in school, it's called propaganda.

    "Motherhood isn't easy even when you have everything going for you, so this lady must be very brave."

    And life isn't easy when you don't have a father. What you call brave I call selfish. Frankly, shes not a mother, real mothers put their children first and not their own self interest.

    ohh noo, Maryland may be overdue but NC isn't. Last year or the year before was Isabel, then there was Floyd which is one of the costliest Hurricanes of all times. There was Fran and many others the last 6 or 7 years. So speak for yourself buddy, the only thing we're overdue for is this nice peaceful year thus far!

    Seriously, the rest of the season will produce no land falls, I pray.

    I agree. Everything is the fault of the woman. She especially dislikes Mothers and daughters having relationships. I think SHE'S the one who needs counseling.

    I'm sure your son is a wonderful person, all around! You're post just made me realize in general how often some people equate being a good student with a good person. I can't tell you how many times I see news articles where some teenager killed or maimed someone and the parents and others involved respond" But he/she is on the honor roll, a straight A student!"

    I think by capable he means that as a species we ideally can reason regardless of the abnormalities within the species. Animals under no circumstance can achieve reasoning which is not an abnormality but the norm, so they are NEVER capable. But frankly the argument is not that great because animals can choose... food, who they want attention from, etc... It has more to do with the soul and lack thereof.

    I was wondering why so often goodness is associated with good grades? Not saying that your child isn't good AND smart, but our society puts too much emphasis on grades and education and not on the quality of the person's morals and conscience. If I had to choose, I would prefer a doofus with a heart of gold.

    I once heard a PETA spokeswoman on my local radio show state that if there was a baby and a snake on the road that she would swerve to hit the baby in order to miss the snake. Absolute demonic freaks.

    How in the world can you tell if someone is lurking? I searched for java guy and couldn't find him. Are you wondering if I have multiple screen names or something? I really don't understand your point from the start, it just seems really strange.

    From a liberal standpoint, there could be the argument of symbiosis (I know, a stretch) and how if a parasite was attached (hang on) that you would want to remove said parasite (such as a leech) and not think twice about it.

    Unique HUMAN DNA different than that of the mother makes a fetus a separate Human being and not a parasite. Only humans can have Human DNA. Your DNA today is the same as it was in your mother's womb. That would be my argument.

    If people would start debating with cold, hard facts and not their emotions we would win this war. Good for you for planting the seed. You forgot one point though. Fetus is Latin for Unborn Offspring and the definition is... : an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind; specifically : a developing human from usually three months after conception to birth. The word Fetus does not prove or mean it's not a Human.

    If it's not your DNA, it's not your body and therefore not your choice.
