Do note this question is not intended to address your personal beliefs but of what you can surmise of others.

 Consider case where one thinks a living Jesus was strung upon cross but survived the experience.

 MQ: Which way did he then go?

What way did he go NSEW to where- did he arrive at destination? In what condition.

Suppose same question concerning where he went would apply to those also denying the use of cross. It was not among his symbologies.
 MQ: Can Jerusalem become part of peace planning?
Why Can't Jerusalem become part of peace planning?

Item: Some muslim claim it was found to be their best link to heavens (>=7).

Item: Some among jews claim prior ownership for best place on earth to centralize access to their g_d (lost 'temple').

Item: Some among christianity claim it since it was thought to be last city visited by their favored leader.

Item: Where one Moses in common to all the above, was said to lead others to vacant farmlands the city was not part of the 'promised' land of milk and honey. City named as Salem.

Item: Judahites not present in the city until reign of David where it was referred to as Jebusalem, which does not refer to Jews (Jew's Salem) but rather to the local inhabitants - Jebusites.

Item: The other two religions do must accept mutual history to that period, whatever else predating any major central place of worship. For example, Solomon came on later to the scene, as did Bat Sheva, Zadok & Cushian Yesaba.
what exactly is self realization or enlightenment in spirituality. As per what i have read...it means to stop identifying yourself with body mind intellect.... can you suggest good books or lecture that helps in understanding and achieving self realization.

I refer to Leedskalnin's Perpetual Motion Holder:
This guy had a strange theory about magnetism, a kind of mistic, not really part of scientific world.
Interesting is the simple device which can be replicated, named Perpetual Motion Holder. Here is a video about it:

How the energy conservation does apply here?
I wonder if I used a famous person's (first) name in a URL, would that be legally unadvisable?

Say I was making a weight lifting web-site and I wanted to call it Arnold's palace, would Arnold Schwarzenegger have anything to say?
What about an Alternative music blog and I called it vedderboard.com from Eddie Vedder.
or eddieboard.com


I am embarking on an artistic stage.

If I make an art piece of a 17" hunting knife stabbing action figures of Britney Spears and also Justin Bieber in one efficient stroke, will there be repercussions? Or will people understand it as a community service w artistic license?
What if I have a Tyrannosaurus eating Britney and Bieb's ?

Planning my travels abroad and looking into the budgets.  Any currencies went down or going down as a result of UK exit from EU?  
Asian currencies (thai, japanese, vietnamese),  Eastern European or Russian Ruble?

I want to make an Excel timechart of the Judean kings.  The Bible gives the length of each kings' reign.  However if a king died in one year and his son took over, is that counted as the next year?  I think it varies for different kings.
Therefore, I need the jewish year when each king's reign started.
Something similar for the judges would be great too.
Is there a map of Israel where one can click on a city and see the verses in the Bible where it is mentioned together with its modern name? What would be interesting is how it deals with multiple cities of the same name which changed name during biblical times eg Beis El becoming Beis Aven.
For example someone learning Samuel 1 may come across Samuelgoing to Gilgal.  Clicking on Gilgal they would also see the verse in Joshua where he sets the stones up there.
Perhaps they were still there in Samuel’s time.  Even if not, he would have known about them.

Is there a similar site that would be suitable for primary school children (age 4-11)?
I never expected this to be so difficult.

I need a database (in any form) listing the following:


I need this in TXT, CSV or Excel or any other format. I do not need web pages if dates that I need to read. But I could consider screen scraping...as a lot resort.

Any links to this?

This is a bit of a puzzle ;P

I was just struck by the thought: Is it actually unethical to do the work that antivirus and security companies do, examining a virus program, stepping through the bytes to reconstruct what its activity is, etc?  Seriously, that is.

Lets say that I'm a malware author, and I go out of my way to make sure that there is a strongly worded EULA agreement that prohibits reverse engineering of the file, etc, and for the sake of making it a fully black and white question, lets say that I package it along with a legitimate program that folks want to install like filezilla or such -- so the user runs into the various "Check this box if you dont want to disclude the program from not being installed" nonsense pages that such program installers provide for a plethora of adware etc.  And my installer screen says "Install GPApocalypse!  Is your hard drive getting full of pesky data?  Too many passwords to remember for every application?  Worry no more, this program will eliminate most of the space-hogging material on your harddrive and reduce the need to remember passwords by deleting nearly all the applications from your computer at intervals based on a predictable pattern.  As a bonus, it will choose most of the remaining files in a predictable way learned by your behavior, and encrypt all of your files with a 256bit cyptokey, so you'll only ever have to worry about a single password ever again!

1. What specific statements in the video link below, if any, are inaccurate?

2. So, after seeing the video, and understanding that Jordan attacked Israel in the 1967 war, why is Israel the only country being compelled to give back territory (the West Bank) taken during a war to defend itself?


I would like to bring in your attention an experiment published in magazine "Science et Vie" nr.700 March 1976 (pages 42-45).
Please have a look at the next documents:


Interesting to notice that a similar document is on NASA servers:

What is your opinion about it?
I miss a word. It is somewhere deep in my mind and I cannot take it out.
I need a brainstorming to help me to take it out and remember it.
To increase the confusion, I am not so sure if I will be able to define it properly.
Here it is:
-      How do you name/call a person/individual who represents a group, having the same characteristics?
-      When you look at that individual, you see trough/in that person all the others. Like a model, a special type. Maybe is a word related with “type”, maybe sounds as genotype, maybe in Latin.
-      Stereotype is too banal, ordinary and has not a nice connotation.
-      Archetype sounds better, but for me seems that involves something ancient or something initial that was first time.
-      I need the word to express a common set of problems and values. I would like to apply this word or expression to describe a family in needs, which in fact is one family out of thousands in the same situations with the same needs and problems and values. The description would be used to designate all the other families using the name of that representative family.
-      What is that word or expression?
Any other suggestion is welcome.
I ordered an Inversion Table (one which makes you tilt downwards) at eBay during last Dec's promo :
supposedly to help with backaches, dementia & even depression.

The item never arrives & I have a screen shot of the order;  however when I check my eBay records,
there's no record of the order.

Firstly, does inversion table truly has those benefits mentioned esp for depression?  I'm sure
it'll help with backaches.

If it never comes & never charge to my bank account, I'll just forgo it if it doesn't really help with
depression otherwise, I'm going to demand delivery (& pay for the US$49 as I really need it for
I was comparing and contrasting the books of Chumash and Nach with a Chavrusa and we came up with this.  Does it make sense?
I showed it to a few people and they mentioned Abarbanel’s introduction to Neviim Rishonim and Malbim’s introduction to Yirmiyahu.  Is it possible to get hold of these in English?

What’s the difference between the books of Chumash and Nach?
Ohr Hachaim to Bemidbar 12:6 says that G-d’s word to prophets besides Moshe was covered with various layers of wrapping.  These layers were dictated by G-d to the prophet.  The prophet eg Zechariah knew the inner meaning of what was dictated, but was not allowed to write it down.  Since Zechariah was one of the last prophets he may not have been able to pass it on verbally either.  With Chumash there is clarity in the plain text in addition to secrets.  In Zechariah there is no clarity to the plain meaning of the text.
How do you prove that G-d dictated the words of Nach to the prophet rather than simply saying that the prophet wrote it himself?
G-d says to Yirmiyahu (1:9) that I’ve put my word into your mouth (see also Yeshaya 49:2). If G-d was careful about what He showed prophets then why let them write as they pleased?  Rambam (Guide for the Perplexed 2:29) says that prophecies from prophets after Moshe reflected the personality of the prophet.  G-d’s dictation was commensurate with the prophet’s personality and what they would have said naturally.  We also see that the Gemoro learns Halacha
My wife can't stand the fact that I play Call of Duty.

I need to design and program a motion detector device that when she enters the hallway next to my computer room, it will switch my screen to a video of Dr Phil or HGTV or the Food Channel. I think this can work and we could sell a truckload of them as well as saving a few marriages.
EE is in evolution fine
but why can't i set my page to expert view?

how do i do that ?  after installing a new pc
The assignment description is below this text.
I have put together something involving politics, history and scandals, and I would love to hear other people's opinions on what I have created. But I would be devastated if I ever had my membership to EE put on hold.

When I saw these two new groups, I was interested...

But what are the guidelines for political correctness? If you ask me, any such guidelines make it off limits, and far too risky.

I count of EE for my livelihood, actually.

Please tell me if this one is a safe haven for me to share my latest works. I could create a post using a web link. Or if there is a different such forum that has nothing to do with EE. I seek a place where people can freely discuss various topics.

Please suggest some good philosophy books which you have personally experienced has changed the way you think
and your outlook to the world.

Its part of our body.
I am totally shattered and find no way to get her back

Going on interviews again and again I'm often asked pretty much the same questions. But still this is a challenge to answer this ones:

Question 1: Where do you see yourself in five years?

Question 2: How good are you at working with people you don’t like?

How do you find this list ?

What is the best strategy to get the better feedback?
I checked few links about it as follows:
I see mentioned CBM discovered at different wavelength at different time moment as for example 3.2cm or 1.9mm or other values.
Why these differences? Which one is accurate or more important?
I cannot find anywhere, calculated or estimated the wavelength of the CBM radiation at the Big-Bang moment or at least at the age of 1s when the temperature is estimated 10 billion Kelvin.
Any help with CBM wavelength at that early stage of 1s?
