LOL'ing at everyone who believes in Satan. You believe in the Toof Fairy as well?
you think all the celebs and hollywood stars that flash the same signs and have been doing it since the beatles era at least, are doing it as a fad and an in joke, thats mental in itself, why would they....
if people can't see its real its because they are a blind victim of the mass mind control that goes on, or they are working for the other side.

The same lol at people believing in a creator, yet very many do.
The more deeply scientists see into the secrets of the universe, you'd expect, the more God would fade away from their hearts and minds. But that's not how it went for Allan Sandage. Now slightly stooped and white-haired at 72, Sandage has spent a professional lifetime coaxing secrets out of the stars, peering through telescopes from Chile to California in the hope of spying nothing less than the origins and destiny of the universe.
As much as any other 20th-century astronomer, Sandage actually figured it out: his observations of distant stars showed how fast the universe is expanding and how old it is (15 billion years or so). But through it all Sandage, who says he was "almost a practicing atheist as a boy," was nagged by mysteries whose answers were not to be found in the glittering panoply of supernovas. Among them: why is there something rather than nothing?
In 1977 Nobel physicist Steven Weinberg of the University of Texas sounded a famous note of despair: the more the universe has become comprehensible through cosmology, he wrote, the more it seems pointless. But now the very science that "killed'' God is, in the eyes of believers, restoring faith.
Physicists have stumbled on signs that the cosmos is custom-made for life and consciousness. It turns out that if the constants of nature – unchanging numbers like the strength of gravity, the charge of an electron and the mass of a proton – were the tiniest bit different, then atoms would not hold together, stars would not burn and life would never have made an appearance.
Something surprising is happening between those two old warhorses science and religion. Historically, they have alternated between mutual support and bitter enmity.
Charles Townes, who shared the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering the principles of the laser, goes further: "Many have a feeling that somehow intelligence must have been involved in the laws of the universe."

aye ive got a BSc in applied psychology, i decided to do it aged 30 after learning i had
a "photographic memory", we all have we just need to use our imagination and
"the method of loci" which is thousands of years old mnemonic technique
that they used to remember great works like the illiad, i used maps in the game
call of duty to place my memorable images. recalled 3x 1000 word answers for my
entry exam, 4 hours work, photographic memory or so it would appear...
yeah i know a bit about psychology
been studying it my whole life, we all have!
if it weren't for all these distractions maybe i would have been enlightened now
but im not, im just aware of the web im trapped in
