Here's a cool site my brother showed me...it's got some evidence that the Earth isn't as old as evolutions are saying...

I have discovered something about myself. I LOVE learning. Maybe it's just since I've been to college, but everything has become so interesting. I love college because I can learn and I love learning because I feel like I can see TRUTH in all of its forms better, and better understand reality as a whole. Today I talked after class with my Astronomy teacher. Today was the first day that he taught (last week was a different teacher)...I could just tell he was one of those people that are REALLY smart. So smart, he doesn't have to make himself look smart. He was simply smart. Not just one of those people that knows just a whole bunch of facts...he actually knew concepts and was smart in a complete way. He showed us a picture of his family -- father of 9 kids! Anyway, he's smart. And he said something that blew my mind today! Time can be slowed down --for real. It's been proven: Take a pair of twins. Send one when he's 20 years old into space so he's going at light-speed. Meanwhile Twin "A" is down on earth, and it's been 15 years since his brother left. Twin "B" is in lightspeed, but time physically slows down...his heartbeat is even slower, but he doesn't feel anything...he feels everything is normal, and he talks at the same speed. He comes back two earth after only being at lightspeed for 2 or 3 years his time in space. His brother, twin "A" has aged and it now he's 35 years old, but twin "B" still looks young and he has only lived 3 years more, as opposed to the 15 that his brother has.
I don't really understand it completely, but it is real....time is not a constant. there are other dimensions. I didn't understand this at first, so I went up to Dr. Voss and this is what he explained to me! It makes so much more sense now to think that God is outside of time.
Well yesterday I had an awesome MLK day. We didn't have classes, but taylor provided a bunch of different sessions on the topics of racial issues that we could go to, and they were really cool! I went to one talking about Arab-American relations that was fascinating!! I could've listened to it all day I think. The guy speaking was an Arab-American...he had such a clear view of what America is really like --it was so cool listening to someone who can actually see the US, like it really is because he can see it from the outside. some things he said: He gets mad when an airport worker searches an old white lady with a cain, but doesn't search him. He wouldn't mind being searched because its a fact that people that look like him ARE the what the past-terrorists have looked like. It shouldn't be considered discrimination. He would say "I have nothing to hide, so I wouldn't mind being searched." Another topic he discussed was how the middle east views the US. 99% of them have never staying in an American home. All they know of Americans are from tv shows like "Desparate Housewives." The media and the stuff on tv...is all they see of America -- they think we are sick. Another point: the difference between moderate muslims and radical muslims is that radical muslims follow all of the Koran. The Koran commands violence.....so the terrorists are the most loyal to Islam. It's not a peaceful religion -- like the American media describes. Another point: the US is the only country where you can actually say what you want. Saddam got more than 99% of the vote....because everyone was so afraid of speaking what they truely wanted.

Went to another session by a guy that works for an organization called E.R.A.C.E. that D.C. talk started actually. Pretty cool...talked about how racism is still alive in America. very interesting
