Why do you assume it came from
nothing, how are you jumping to
that huge conclusion. Make's
more sense that the galaxies
exist in a universe that's always
been there.




even what you suggest is true it doesn't come remotely close to explaining the mysteries of the origin of the universe

the most widely accepted theory is the big bang theory which postulates that the universe was created by a gigantic explosion

but all kinds of questions surrounding that supposition are unexplained
it's not the size of the dog in the fight that matters........................it's the size of the fight in the dog

The galaxies came from that, inside
the universe that's been there
forever. Why do you assume that
was the only BB.

All Supernatural, Voodoo, Bigfoot, alien stuff IS absolute complete b*******. I have encountered some strange things but I just chalked them up as a being coincidental.

When I was about 18 there was this girl who I was friends with. Me and my buddy were going to go mudding in his four wheel drive real quick before we went out for the night while waiting for her and others to get off of work.
She was very very adamant. She went on and on that she was psychic, and that we shouldn't go because something really bad was going to happen. She actually got a little crazy about the whole situation. So to calm her down we lied and said you were just going to go pick up some beer. She said, that's okay, but don't lie because she was swearing to God something really bad was going to happen if we went muddling.

On the way back from mudding my buddy decided to have me drive since he was pretty lit up by then. I put on my seat belt and made him put on his since he normally never wore a seat belt. It started pouring down rain. With the rain and mud on the tires when I slow down for a corner coming down a hill I lost traction and went off the side of the road down a gully and flipped a vehicle two and a half times. While the vehicle was tumbling in what seemed to be slow motion, what that chick said went through my head at the time. To this day I still just chalk it up it's just coincidence.

Might have been a self-fulfilling prophecy, too.

Dont you miss stuff like that whilst living in the dessert? As much as I would love to live in Vegas or a warm weather climate I like to experience snow and cold.

How is that a self-fulfilling prophecy when I don't/ didn't even believe in that b*******. It wasn't even my prophecy. I just thought she was being crazy and had some other motivation as to why she didn't want us to go. There's a chance at the time I was thinking she probably thought we would get off doing some other stuff and not come back for her. After we left I didn't think twice about the situation. When I was that age My ultimate goal was to get laid and have as much fun as I possibly could without killing myself or going to jail.

Self fulfilling prophecies don't make the rain start pouring down or cake mud on tires. I can guarantee you I would never even subconsciously do something that would put myself in that much Danger, it would have all been conscious. The fact is I was actually being cautious that night since I was driving his vehicle. For the most part when I was younger there was almost no time I ever obeyed the speed limit or drove cautiously. I'm sure I broke most of the traffic laws are most of the time. I doubt there was ever a time I didn't roast my tires from a slow roll or stop whenever I got the chance. I s*** you not, I came to a sliding halt sideways about 6 inches from going off a cliff with me and my buddy one time.

Anybody claiming the supernatural
exists has a lot of learning to do.
Houdini was passionate about
debunking it. He was always
busting fortune tellers and mediums.
He had a bunch of different ways
he was going to try and contact
his wife after he died. She never
heard from him.

Houdini's best friend's son is actually a very successful advantage player(Rick Radner}. That's related to one of my biggest mistakes in gambling I had ever made(I'm the reason he decided to stay in Las Vegas and pursue to Advantage play here).

From my understanding, he eventually got all the memorabilia and whatnot from the Houdini Fortune, or at least the proceeds from it.

I'm not 100% sure how it all went down since I distance myself from him being that he was so very difficult to deal with and a pretty big a****** to others.

He was always telling me that his dad was best friends with Houdini and he would one day inherit everything. At the time, it was just noise to me, not that I didn't believe him or anything, I just didn't care. I remember he had called me years latter upset and pissed off claiming his dad was leaving him out of the will. Probably because he owed me a bunch of money. I was told that all worked out in the end for him but that's only second and 3rd hand knowledge.

anybody ever visited the Gettysburg, PA battlefield memorial?
I've been there several times
more than 50,000 soldiers died there in 3 days of fighting

walking around that battlefield I feel something - every time - maybe restless uneasy souls

I'm not a believer in the supernatural - but I cannot deny what I felt

maybe my imagination triggered the feeling - and there is really nothing there - that is very possible - who knows?



Been there a couple dozen times. I've experienced feelings there I never have before. Almost spiritual. I saw something in Devils Den my first trip when I was ten. There is an old farm just outside town that was a field hospital of last resort for those beyond saving. They allow camping on occasion.
