  1. The earth being round was proven long before Columbus sailed the Atlantic.

    The Greek Philosophers Aristotle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aristotle and later Eratosthenes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eratosthenes knew that the world was indeed round. Aristotle said it was round because of how it's shadow looked during an eclipse, Eratosthenes figured it out from how the sun cast shadow's at different angle's on the the ground at different spot's on earth at the same time.

    Any one who was on a ship in the open water could see for them self, just by how a passing ship would seem to sink as it moved away from you.

    Thing's are observed, then opinion is formed and then if you can prove it (physically), then it is a fact.

    Most intellects knew the earth was round when Columbus first set sail, but most normal people thought the earth was flat. The thing is that some things are probably never completely provable. Things like evolution take millions of years. People have only been around for half a million years so you can see why it's hard to believe in such a thing like evolution.

  2. Here's the two on this site from the 80 tour I think there's a couple more around if you look at other sites.

    But the only professionally filmed shows are 1969 Denmark, 1970 RAH, 1973 MSG, 1975 Last 2 Earls Court shows, 1977 Seattle, 1979 Knebworth

    There's rumors of others but nothing really confirmed. 1969 Dallas is one, 1977 Houston is another rumored one, But nothing is really confirmed.

  3. A theory is basically a scientific fact or as close as you can get to one in science. Science always leaves itself to be proven wrong or different because it's all about testing it over and over again. Gravity is a perfect example. Nobody can perfectly explain why Newton's laws of gravity really work, he basically used math to come up with his theories, but why does his theory work nobody knows almost 400 years later. The theory of evolution is the same as gravity the closest thing you can think of when to fact in science are theories, because science is all about trying to prove and sometimes disprove things using facts.

    Faith is completely different it's about believing no matter what a fact says. Someone can tell you the sky is blue if you just look you can see it, but you don't have to believe that if you don't want to. That's faith.

  4. Of course it sounds somewhat like Zeppelin Jimmy Page is involved. That's like saying Robert Plant kinda sounds like the guy from those Zeppelin albums, there's a good reason for that. I think there's good and bad in Coverdale Page, I'm not a real big fan of Coverdale he sounds kinda too over the top on things like it's too forced. But at the same time there's some good stuff on it like Shake My Tree which was used in some Page and Plant shows. Pride and Joy is decent. There's also a lot of forgettable stuff.

  5. Science shouldn't be faith. People make it too much of a faith at times like what has happened with global warming and other things but the fact that science facts change all the time and some aren't fully provable makes science what it is. Newton's laws of gravity will never fully be explained. But that doesn't make them any less true. Faith is about believing no matter what. That is completely different from science

  6. I grew up watching it too.

    Favorite episode : The Arena ( aka The Gorn )

    Balance of Terror has to be my favorite episode. Enterprise vs Romulans episode. The good old days when the Romulans were actually a good enemy.

  7. True, that's why it's up to the government to come up with an alternative that it isn't.

    Trying to limit healthcare isn't going to be a good alternative. It'll just lead to people not getting treated for other reasons like they aren't healthy enough or they are at too much of a risk for something. Their lives won't be worth getting treated. They think they can pay for everything by just cutting away extra spending. That's stupid because that illegal spending is illegal for a reason, and most of it will be impossible to cut through. What they will have to do is just cut people from getting certain types of healthcare.

    They don't want to make healthcare cheaper, they want more control over it because healthcare is where you can control people the most quickly. That's why every country likes controlling healthcare, it doesn't really work that good but they can tell people what medicine to take or not and in effect how long you can live. The doctors and patients won't decide anything it'll be the bottom line.

  8. Ok, obviously I'm no expert in this subject, but aren't we just talking about health care? I just don't see the connection between wanting every US citizen covered with basic health care and drug companies expanding their profit and other stuff like that. I guess I have to pay more attention to this and read more about it, maybe?

    Drugs are used in healthcare, what's going to happen is that people are not going to get treated because it'll be too expensive to treat someone for something and they are going to be seen as not worth that treatment.

  9. Fox is having a surge right now, because of Obama's comments about it. But you're making a false comparison of CNN and MSNBC. CNN is about as neutral as it's possible to be, now Lou Dobbs is gone.

    Foxnews' ratings have been going up for a long, long time. In fact they started going up around late 2006 or so and have not really even been closed in ratings since around this time. The ratings for Fox haven't really changed since the Obama war on them started. But they haven't really gone down either. MSNBC and CNN just don't really do as good a job as FoxNews does and don't really pay attention to the real news at all. They just promote their own rhetoric and kiss up to the communist ideas that have been going through politics the last decade. The only good thing that FN does is that it is capitalist.

  10. And you want competition for health? I mean its health right? I only care about the best medical care possible I don't care about who delivers it.

    I think the problem with healthcare is there are too many restrictions on it from the government right now. Getting more government involvement is going to make healthcare tougher to get for people that can't get it not easier to get. What will happen is that people will get healthcare for certain things but then they won't get certain types of healthcare. Like you can't check for certain cancers or heart diseases till you are a certain age just to save money. So more people will end up getting diseases because they fall through the cracks and won't get healthcare paid for because they figure they are better off dying than paying for their healthcare. It'll just end up being a big mess like it is in Canada and in Great Britain right now. Healthcare is tearing up those 2 countries right now just like it is here. Only here there's 300 million people instead of about 10 million people. In the end the government won't be able to create enough money to support the healthcare system it wants to take over.

    The best way to fix healthcare is to cap the law suits against doctors and to allow healthcare to be used across state lines. You know use capitalism to make it cheaper. That's what has made America work for about 230 years.

  11. All media outlets are manipulating liars...They trade in 2 things..Anger and FEAR...which blinds people to the true nature of things

    So none of this should suprise anybody...It's all about creating divisions

    I think that's the same with politicians also. It's not like the politicians have said one thing that is true about their healthcare bill. There will be less choice and no competition after this bill passes.

  12. They are doing writing now and figureing out what villan to use. Rumors of bringing back Khan. Shooting may start mid 2011 with a release of summer 2012 is what my daughter tells me. She keeps up on that stuff as she is a Chris Pine nut. He is committed to 3 other projects right now

    The next movie won't likely have Khan. That's what the commentary on the film said. But this was also just weeks after the film was released so it's still too soon to tell. I seriously doubt they do a Khan flick in the next one. Probably a Klingon movie or some other alien.

  13. If you know where to look you can pretty much download all of these shows to your computer. Earls Court is probably Zeppelin at their peak. One of the shows went almost 4 hours. Roberts voice was a little shaky at some points but not near as bad as he was earlier in the year. The rest of the group were probably at their best musically.

  14. I could care less about this, but allow me to use this thread to make a political prediction. Sarah Palin will never get the Republican nomination, but that won't stop her from campaigning. I believe she will run in 2012 on a third party ticket which will split the Republican party. This will allow the Democrats to run Elmer Fudd if they choose, and still keep the Presidency.

    You could be right, but I think the republican and democrat parties are pretty much irrelevant anyway. It'll come down to who wins the congressional seats. I think we'll see the democrats lose a ton of those seats because they are being beat up more than Obama is right now. The republicans basically ran a democrat as their candidate last time and they probably will go the same way this time.

  15. The next movie is due out in 2011.

    I was hoping for a 2010 release.

    Will be picking up the DVD Tuesday.

    What are the extras on the 2nd disc ? ?

    There's added scenes like the ones that are talked about where Nero escapes from the Klingon's and a few others I'm sure. I'm sure there's making of stuff also. There's not even a date for the next movie. If it's out by 2011 they probably need to start filming real soon as in the next few months. Last I heard they haven't really writtin anything for it so my guess is 2012 for the next movie.

  16. I have the 929 boot and it sounds terrible. One of the worst boot qualities I have of Zep...I have heard the "Friends" soundboard from the same show and it is fantastic. Where's the rest of the recording? How much of the soundboard was released?

    There was no soundboard released for that show. It's an amazing audience. Legend says that Zeppelin did record soundboards for those shows but they were destroyed by Jimmy Page.
