    This^^ :) The various jurisdictions have slightly different styles (Russian, Byzantine, etc), but they're all chant. Some chant is done by one person, and other is done by a group with some singing ison notes.

    Incorrect. The NT was written long after the Church began (the first written gospel, Mark, was oral tradition until it was first recorded in c. 70 AD). For further debate on this, please start another thread.

    Sola Scriptura (as an "official" sort of doctrine and such and as Reformers mean it) is new (in the grand scheme of things) to ALL Christianity. Same for the other Solas and a bunch of other things.

    I eyeball it, but most is just tomato sauce, paste, seasoning (cumin, oregano, and chili powder feature heavily), your favorite sauce thickener, and some stock to thin it out so you don't end up with a clay brick by the time the flavors marry. You can also go about roasting your own peppers, onions, and tomatoes, drying them out, reconstituting them, blending them, running them through a sieve, and then getting the sauce to the right consistency. I would not touch anything sensitive after that series of events. This is why I usually just shrug and get the canned kind. I know it's not authentic, but it's enchiladas for two. I'm not doing all the aforementioned work for just me and mom :p

    If you cared to find that out, there are numerous examples out there right now. Companies go out of business, merge, change the terms of a plan (at renewal), etc., all the time. Providers change their participation in networks as well. Usually the provider is left holding the bag. Consider a third party administrator that acts as the facilitator for several insurance companies. It guarantees payment, it provides authorization and staffing services, and it negotiates contracts. Now consider that it goes out of business. Several things start to happen. The first is that some notice has to be given by the insurance company (or third party administrator) to the providers. Unfortunately, this notice doesn't have to be particularly long and since the company's going out of business it doesn't have much to fear.

    SMFH. IIRC, CA shares a major water source with AZ (Colrado river). Why not just copy the AZ model? Farmers here are doing as well as can be expected considering the drought and bringing good produce to local markets(IMO it's good). (even though teh Trump thinks drought is imaginary, it ain't)

    False. Carbs are a type of sugar and cause your body to produce insulin. Too much insulin=insulin resistance/metabolic syndrome, which leads to type II diabetes if not curbed by dietary change. No fat or oil does this. It's just how nature works. Biology FTW. :cool:

    Enchiladas are ultra easy to make. Just make sure you season the meat and sauce super well. There are great make-your-own red sauces out there, though this is one occasion when I am fine with using canned/jarred and adding to it. For meat I will use ground pork sometimes, but most of the time it's chicken that I've previously cooked in the oven in a little foil pouch with very heavy-handed seasoning (garlic powder, chili powder, salt, black pepper, oregano, cumin, cinnamon (very small amount). Once that cools, I shred up the chicken. I brown some onions in a skillet until they're cooked but not limp (think fajita texture), add a half a roasted red bell pepper all diced up, some green chiles or a small bit of jalapeno, the chicken, and a splash of whatever sauce I'm using. Some sauce goes in the bottom of the casserole dish, then tortillas with some of the filling, then once there's no room left it gets topped with more sauce, and a first layer of cheese. There is no such thing as too much cheese, but you don't want a mountain on there that does not melt, so I let the first layer melt, then add another layer, then crank it up to a broil for a moment or two to get that nice brown top (which your photo lacks... hell the cheese does not look entirely melted in spots). You can add the little sprinkle of cilantro for color, but I just serve it up next to some sour cream and that's that. It's interesting that your photo does get one thing right: I am a "seam up" enchilada maker. I've never understood why people put them seam down. It's a mess to get them out of the pan in one piece. I put them seam up with a toothpick if it's needed. The cheese tends to seal them once it melts.

    So it's only Atlantic hurricanes that are Category 5 and make landfall as hurricanes and they have to have hit the US? That's a rather narrow path compared to "no major hurricanes." Even then, however, several of the hurricanes on your list were since Katrina, and disprove the earlier assertions.

    Not a clue what that means. Your original quote was about global climate change. Is there a specific part of that which states the climate change would be localized to North America? Even if I humor that, what about Hurricane Patricia?

    Correct, and the assertion was that there had been no major hurricanes since Katrina. Given that the above quote was about global climate change, your chart only seems to bolster my point that there have been major storms since.

    All synthesis produces waste. Protein synthesis is the least "destructive" of the macronutrients (it helps rebuild muscle tissue damaged during sport, training, and life generally). Not too much bad can come from too much protein, but too many carbs causes metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and a number of other nasty things.

    Yea man, I've been helping a lot of local businesses with my services, and having a lot of fun doing it. There's lots of demand for my services right now, thankfully.

    You're doing some travelling right now, right? Just curious how that's going.

    Cool man. Anyone who has such a solid understanding of Math, must have a decent head on their shoulders, even if they are a little nuts. Sometimes I think a few of the people that we regard as "nuts" just understand something that the rest of us don't.

    I have a lot of respect for the sciences. What kind of work do you hope to do with physics, in the future?

    Anyways, I'm nothing too special. Im a 25 year old self-employed businessman. I help businesses get leads and grow their consumer base, mostly with internet marketing strategies.

    To sum up my life, I'm just another evolved ape trying to find his place on this rock hurling through space. :-)

    Once again, sorry for the late response. I have a bad habit of forgetting to respond to wall posts. I think some people on facebook are starting to hate me for it, haha.

    So you are really dedicated to math, eh? I find it fascinating, and wish I paid more attention to it in school. Everything in nature seems to have some sort of mathematical pattern to it.

    So, What is it you do for a living? Are you a physicist or something along those lines?

In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.

The greater the state, the more wrong and cruel its patriotism, and the greater is the sum of suffering upon which its power is founded.

Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.

- Leo Tolstoy
