    That's a joke only Čechs would get? Now I'm curious.
    What is 'Ovidia' about?
    I'm guessing it's some ancient text.

    “Ovidia” is the accusative form of the name “Ovidius”.

    The eso’s rejoinder is paraphrasis of a Czech movie quote:

    „Mám dotaz. Dá se studium latiny využít i v mém oboru?“
    „Jakému oboru se hodláte věnovati, studente?“
    „Pracuju jako skladník ve šroubárně.“
    „I skladník ve šroubárně si může přečísti Vergilia v originále!“

    Ahoj everyone!

    To me, this is still a very interesting topic. We have here, alot of nice friends interacting together, who have lots of knowledge.

    Torque wrench= comes in many different styles and sizes.
    Used for torqueing nuts and bolts to a measurement of Inch LBS, Foot LBS, or Newton Metors.

    Well, how about our friend, Glenn in Florida? I wounder what he has to say?

    Oh, I need some more popcorn prosím. :lol: :lol: and a DR.Pepper děkuji.

    Wow, some of those comments are truly amazing!

    I consider myself a committed Christian who believes in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, but I am horrified by some of those comments, and would distance myself from the majority of them.

    Many "Christians" do not do the faith any favours by the things they say!

    well, so far the only comment I have is that I remember a late night commercial for a local tire store that got taken off the air because the pitchman said "You haven't lived until you've had you nuts torqued at Tire Kingdom" :wink:

    Provaketer Eso,
    Everybody believes. It's just not everybody believes the same thing.
    And people are glad to take a stand for their own position.
    They make their stand, and all other beliefs are heresy.
    I do not like the extremes on either side. Intolerance breeds self-righteousness, contempt, and even hatred.
    Nevědět není hřích, nechtít vědět, to je problém.
    Žádný není víc slepý, než ti, kteří odmítá vidět. Má to smysl?
    I vůl, jak jsem já, si může přečist Vergilia v originálně. No, možná to není pravda.

    Still waiting for Nabiri to show up.

    What about sceptics and skepticism?

    Originating in Greece in the middle of the fourth century BC, skepticism and its derivatives are based on the following principles:

    - There is no such thing as certainty in human knowledge.
    - All human knowledge is only probably true.

    Belief is not knowledge, not a 100% surety. "All human knowledge is only probably true," is itself a statement of belief.

    Well, that's a good example. Seemingly, they would question everything a doubt what they hear until it is proven true. But then, wouldn't that be a belief system, that you can't trust anything or anyone?

    I like that system somewhat, (nothing wrong with questioning what you are told is true), but it too can be taken to the extremes.
    Our present day skeptics are so politically motivated.
    No matter what the government says, 'well, it must be a lie.'
    They have turned from 'seekers of truth' into 'the government always lies.'
    Everybody lives their lives and sees their world from eyes filtered by their own beliefs.

    Only if you think in absolute scale. - only Yes or Not.
    In that way - you could only believe or not believe to anything or anyone. But scepticism is about probability.

    I consider myself as sceptic. There are some things, which I consider as realy unprobable, but not impossible - such as existence of God. In real life, of course, I'm guided by opinions I consider most probable.

    Actualy sova, I'm not sure I understandt what do you mean:

    Belief is not knowledge, not a 100% surety.

    I met many believers, who insisted, that their believe is 100% surety.

    Where'd you come across that Sova? Even the physists have their own cartoons now.
    Nabiru, according to my belief, :wink: , is the figment of some overactive imaginations.

    BTW - I'm not expert, I only read some popular science books or articles here and there. But for now, dark matter theory seems to me little holey (bad pun intended ;) ) and I think you scientists have to work harder on it to convince me ;)

    I'm a skeptic at heart too, meaning I won't believe something just because I'm told it's true.
    But then again, I will not refuse to believe something just because I don't like who is telling me.
    Oy, it's a fine line
    The blind patriot says my country can do no wrong.
    The blind Bush hater says my country can do no right.
    Nothing wrong with sitting on that proverbial fence, I can get a pretty good look at both sides.

    Wrong and right could be relative terms - it depends on observer.
    In most cases, any action has good impact on something and bad on something other.
