I work in an office, I wear a shirt to the wrist. It's none of my employers business what's under that shirt sleeve.
The UK, Greenland, possibly some of North Africa , etc etc would probably have a few dozen Tsunami's to deal with too.....
And many people would argue that it's the success of Star Wars that made them relent.
If God created the universe (space)... He must also have created TIME.
Could you please explain how something goes from "not created" to "created" without time? How does causality work without time?
Imagine a reader in 1940 reading a science fiction story which accurately predicted 2014. The idea that there would be women working who aren't just trolling for husbands would strike him as bizarre and not very credible.
1920 maybe. By 1940 women were doing factory work building planes for the war effort. Hell Google WAFFs. Have a look at the video of Queen Elisabeth changing a land rover tire....
An openly transgendered character who wasn't immediately arrested or put into a mental hospital would be beyond belief.
Google "Molly House" Transgender was around in Victorian times.
I'm not saying you are wrong per-say. But almost all of the things you quote, if you went back a bit further would be considered normal. A bit further again and are considered wrong.
But if a thing exists outside of time, it can't have actions, it can't have causal relations, it can't create. By definition, if it is outside of time, it cannot change, either itself or anything else, it has not ability for "then".
So how does it create time?
“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day — unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.” -Zen proverb
My point was more, "how come this thing that's been working for 20 years works, if you theory says it shouldn't". Not if it's actually any use in the field or not
I thought we'd been using tiny variations in gravity to detect Oil for 20 or so years now, fly over an area and map the underground caverns based off gravity variation.
Chances are GP is not seeing a difference because something is doing a good job of up-scaling, so *everything* is in 1080.....
I read that the issue was actually with battery size/life.... Rather than having the displays.
Smaller form factor brings a smaller volume to fit the battery in. Retina needs a *much* bigger battery, so you either drop the run time, or the display. Apple wanted a consistent run time across tablets.....
Todays car has probably a 5 year factory warranty and probably will last for 150-200 miles.
I commute 300 miles a week, how do I get home on Wednesday!
Have a look at DARCS
It's also amazing how long it often takes before the phrase "I'd look at the logs" come out, or something like it.
You were sacked because a test system died? I think you had more issues that you imagine.
