Why? Because you did what many others here don't have the sense or balls to do. You knew you were presenting a far out there thing so you put a question mark in your title and your very first sentence was a disclaimer saying it was an email etc. So, thank you.
I understand this board has its place for far-out-there discussions, even though I'm personally very skeptical by nature and dont "believe" in anything without proof, but my problem with the forums lately is how people typically present their out-there beliefs with eye catching titles (like "THE TRUTH THE GOVT IS HIDING" all caps or "100% proof of ETs" then its just a #ty youtube video etc) and preaching their beliefs as truths even when they have no evidence. If more people followed your example surely this would be a better place.edit on 7-12-2010 by darkest4 because: (no reason given)

I think he just threw that one in because some (not very bright) people won't believe anything unless there is some sort of biblical precedent for it. Sort of like throwing a slow pitch to a 4-year-old.

Ok I will say this again even though I thought I was pretty clear on it from the beginning and also mentioned it later through the thread.
ALL I did was post a email that was sent to me.I didn't alter it in anyway. Any references in it made weather it be about Bible, wilderness, etc. I myself did not make. The was ALL the original email. Hence the quotes from beginning to end of the email.
I posted it as I stated because it have a reference of testing of this made during the Vietnam war. Hence it is in the military forum. I thought the IDEA of it was interesting and wondered what others thought about it. I also thought we might get lucky and get a vet from then that might actually remember this testing.
We have had some great responses and some great links added to learn from. Obviously there is something to it somehow someway, just by going by the responses and some of the links.
I am glad people are having fun with it and I really have learned a couple new things, and That I do believe is at least a part of what ATS is suppose to be all about.
I hope this clear up any misunderstandings of the original post.

Actually all animals who grow hair have non stop hair growth, but good old evolution stopped them fom turning into fuzzy feasts for prdators by allowing them to Shed their hair... If it never shed..how is an animal going to cut its hair so its not a giant fuzz ball that overheats and cant see, or have super long hair getting caught in bushes and branches.
In islam, Muslim men are ecouraged to have beard, as Prophet Mohammad's following. Prophet Mohammad had beard and hairs of head til shoulders, not longer then shoulders i mean they were not crossing the shoulders. and if we look at history of jesus, he was not having short hairs.. we were told about the facts.. now we found reasoning
