This is what the world is coming to without Jesus. A world without truth. So what is truth? According to Princeton University, truth is "conformity to reality or actuality."
Know we know what truth is, truth is what is real. Someone who is insane has lost touch with reality, and does not know what truth is. So how do we determine what reality is? Truth comes from a Prime Reality, Prime Reality is the thing from which everything else comes. That is what determines truth. A world with no set standard of truth, where virtually anything can be true, would be a world of chaos, a world without Jesus.
God (Jesus) sets the standard of truth. God told us not to murder, not to steal. God set the standard, He determines reality. A world without Jesus, would be a world of confused, hurt, evil people. Evil only because they believe they are not.
Another reason Jesus is truth, is the Bible. The Bible is the most reliable historical document of all time, 100% true. In John 1:1 it says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Jesus (who is also God) is the word! Making him truthful because the Word of God is infallible and inherent.
For these reasons "Truth" is my favorite way to describe Jesus.

So we see this is not a significant problem to be dealt with. Why should we spend more money, regulate more, and take away freedom, for something that's not a problem?

Around four hundred B.C. there was a Greek dude who liked to stump people with paradox's, all them trying to prove that motion didn't exist. As absurd as this sounds, some of his arguments are somewhat valid. There are two paradox's out of many that are most stumping.
The first one is the arrow story. The claim is that if you see an arrow at one instant in time it wont be moving. Therefor if in any instant in time the arrow isn't moving the arrow can't move in any instant of time, making motion impossible.
Another argument was the Dichotomy paradox. This says that it is impossible to cross a room, the reason being because; in order to got to the desired location you must move half way there, and once you move half way there, in order to keep progressing towards the desired location, you have to move half of that distance. This is seemingly in endless cycle, first halfway across the room, then 1/4 of the way there, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, and so on, so that you move across an infinite number of distances, in a finite amount of time, this of course is impossible. But we can cross a room and prove this wrong, right? wrong. It's not proving that we can't walk across a room but that motion is impossible.
The solution to this is simply that Zeno is being illogical. His theory would only work if you stopped at every half way point in the room, and of course, thats not how we walk.

January 7th, 2010, Apple releases iPad, some think its revolutionary, others think it's a load of crud.
Right off the bat people have found things to pick at the iPad, no webcam, no USB, too much of a border around the screen no widescreen, no multitask, and no Flash. No Flash means less versatility on the web and no web based YouTube. USB was a big thing to, the iPad comes with a USB adapter for photo's, but only photos. No webcam, no video chat. Too big of a border around the screen blocks too much content. And no HDMI output, which means no HDTV on a big screen from the iPad.
Flash was not included, for safety reasons against virus's. But the iPad has a special YouTube that doesn't require Flash. Most major websites that use Flash have an iPhone/iPad version of the site that works without Flash, making the web versatile and iPad friendly. The border around the screen is so that you can hold it without hitting any buttons on accident, and it's really not that big. The screen itself is big enough to make the border fade in the background.The iPad comes with a USB adapter for photos, but you can’t stick a jump drive in you iPad.
The iPad has just come out and Apple usually doesn't put "the norm" on all their products, like a webcam, they like to keep it simple. The iPad will have a webcam soon, probably in a year or so to catch up with other tablets. Multitasking isn't on the iPad as mentioned earlier, the iPad is not a computer, so you can't expect it to do what a computer does. Right now you’re probably thinking "what about Netbook's? can't they multitask and have webcams, do everything the iPad can and more?" Netbooks are slow, they run old PC software, and there just not good. Apple makes things better, this is for people who want to browse the web, E-mail, watch movie’s, play games, listen to music, read books and blogs, way more than a Netbook can do! Well yeah it can’t multitask, but it’s designed to compensate for that with a fast interface. The Netbook tries to be a computer that’s smaller and cheaper, but we’ve seen how that works out, slow. The widescreen complaint is uncalled for, you can use widescreen with the black bars while watching a movie or you can make it full screen by double tapping. And the screen has great graphics like the iPhone and iMac, great for watching movies. No HDMI output is pretty lame but it will probably come out with that later. The iPad is not a Netbook either, it’s better. The iPad is a device for people who mostly use their Smartphone’s. The iPad is a Smartphone on steroids. Now that Apple came out with a tablet, other’s decided to come out with a tablet as well. Coincidence? I think not. Apple is a leader, they have the best product’s, just more expensive. All the other tablet’s that will come out are supposed to have everything iPad doesn’t, multitasking, webcam, USB, etc. I would bet that these tablets will not run nearly as fast or efficient as the iPad. And obviously slow and steady, doesn’t win this race.
