I had a theory that the gravitation of refraction, being subsidiary to atmospheric compensation, the refrangibility of the earth’s surface would emphasize this effect in regions where great mountain ranges occur, and possibly so even-handed impact the odic and idyllic forces together, the one upon the other, as to prevent the moon from rising higher than 12,200 feet above sea-level.

Now we have just some basic Definitions, about the word, Fact, Facts, and Theory etc.

Why am I talking about these?

Because, some ideas, things or even action were viewed as facts, truths, but latter to be proven wrong…. people were even put to death for saying things, that were latter proven to be true…..

So beware that you don’t get caught up in your head that your god …..

Another thing I have observed, is that we see something, and at that moment its true but the next moment its not…. example,

If you take a magnet, and place it on the steel, magnet will stick to the steel, but if you heat the steel to a certain temperature, its nolonger attracts the magnet.

This in one situation its true, the next not, we can be fooled…

Truth and Error Or deception, there are people who for no reason, will say or think the earth is flat, or tell God he is not God, know matter what you say or do or show, ……I have meet such people, ….I say away from them, because I at least will believe the truth, and agree etc……

I observed a friend of mine, he would only hear, see, what he believes, so if it were a conservative ideal, or read something that he knows was true, but ignore everything else there, or mock others for there views acting like he knew the truth, …..so keep this in mind…also people see things or experience things differently… so sometimes many people saw different things and are all right…..

I have a great story a mother I met, she was really cool, she could sing had all the rock band equipment. WOW, anyway her some was a pot head, and drank alcohol, got drunk, but his mother would say my son does not do that! She explained away the beer cans, the, pot bong, the actual bag of weed, she never drank, or did drugs, even her son said he did not know why she would not believe it.

Nice lady never lied or anything, that I could see, even when the police came and arrested her son for selling dope, she blamed on one of his friends…..

This is why it is important to know things learn all you can….With that knowledge, it will make you free from many things like stress,etc.

Q: What do you think is a fact or what kinds of theories do you believe in ?

If your not sure about my writings …please read other written articles I have wrote here, and terms definitions, will be in other materials,and may at first seem unrelated to other articles… you may need to read other articles of mine in order to have understanding, also this is in no way substitutes for researching and reading many other peoples works, to have a rounded clear opinions … Mark A.
