    To goat & ThatOwlWoman: Interesting discussion, but you fail to address:



    I would add that Americans were the first people in history who worked for themselves until the XVI Amendment was implemented.
    The basic test of freedom is perhaps less in what we are free to do than in what we are free not to do. It is the freedom to refrain, withdraw and abstain which makes a totalitarian regime impossible. Eric Hoffer

    I somehow missed this. Einstein originally thought gravity would lead to the big crunch so now there are countless theories on gravity from weak gravity conjecture to the universe only appears to be expanding. It's too complicated for a guy like me.

    I believe big bangs are common and therefore universes are also common. There are countless planets and stars, so why would there only be one universe?
    I have no idea. It was just a question.

    Yes. And probably too distant to feel any concern.

    A quick internet search will tell you that Gobekli Tepe is 6000 years older than Stonehenge. I can show that Gobekli Tepe is older than that but what's important is Gobekli Tepe was built before there were metal tools. The high-relief carvings on 200 pillars were done with stone tools. The accuracy of these upright pillars are questionable because the internet is contradictory.

    site _______ years old _ height _ weight _ number
    Stonehenge __ 5000 ___ 13 ft __ 25 tons __ 30
    Gobekli Tepe _ 11,000 _. 20 ft __ 10 tons __ 200
