I understand why it moved; why to the photo gallery?

Perhaps I spoke too soon. Seems the more exotic aspects of the time-space continuum may be relevant. What with entire threads moving on their own.

The topic was moved to the Campfire Forum-in theory. It popped up in the photo gallery. I haven't had time to bother Doug about it. And as a postscript on the whimsy of measure and location, the Eastern Orthodox church has very good reasons for maintaining the old LITURGICAL calender. The change by a Pope for economic and political reasons may be explained through Easter, or Paska. By tradition it is held after a very real celestial event rich in symbolism of the SUN's death and rebirth and the SON's resurrection.It also cannot be observed until after Passover.The salvation of 'the Lamb of God' to eastern orthodoxy is the second fullfilment of God's promise to the enslaved jews of Egypt.You don't observe or show respect to one event by obliterating it's predecessor in the liturgical year-- unless temporal considerations of one Pope come into play. There are many religious calenders; jewish, japanese,islam etc. But don't worry! ETS is calibrated by Arizona time.

Darn you Blast... I told you it was .11, not .1 It space/time shifted just a wee bit too much! LOL.

Seems that working in the shipping industry may be a valid way to go. Science would be tricky as you would risk bringing the wrath of the church down on you.

You see jeff? this is exactly the kind of information we log onto this site for! There are plenty of religious sites out there if you want to know how to light a fire.

Actually, I'm putting together a millenium length BOB for my born again nieghbors to grab during the Rapture.They're a bit put out, they went running out into the street start of sabbath at sundown and blew a Shofar. My Rabbi took it away from them.I gave everyone a STORM whistle but it isn't the same.

In the British version of 'The Apprentice' that has just finished here, one team were told to buy 'kosher chicken' so they went to a halal butchers and got them to say a prayer over it.
'Our Donald Trump', jewish entrepeneur Michael Sugar asked one of the team who described himself on his resume as 'a good jewish boy' why he didn't go the whole way and get a catholic priest to take the butchers confession?

That is a bit surreal. I'm hearing only one side but it seems some people just don't get it.

IMHO survival is not a narrow field. Virtually every area of human knowledge and understanding can be brought to bear and, given the right situation, could give you an advantage.

History, social studies, comparative religion, psychology and art are all useful. Survival isn't just about bullets and beans and knowing how to create fire by rubbing sticks together. It is also understanding people, people's passage through time and how to get along with other cultures and religions.
