I'm going to test just how smart the vine is, and i'm going to start with this simple question.


WHY DO BALLOONS POP?


A) They tear apart at a speed beyond the sound barrier and thats what causes the noise

B) While you blow up the balloon, you expand the rubber, and when you pop it, (as in puncture) the air can only vent in that particular spot and its tries to equal it out so fast that it simply pops and tears the balloon to shreds

C) It Creates a disturbance in the matrix

Exactly... and thats what I was saying. The God of the major religions of the world ( Christianity, Islam. etc. ) dont really acknowledge science as a real factor of truth at all... I nearly got my head torn off by a bunch of angry Christians at a bible study when I said I thought Evolution was a possiblity with Creationism...
