Comment 22 by The Next Billy Graham :

Well how come we didn't figure out that the earth was round until 1492

this is a myth.The ancient Greeks actually got a reasonable number for its circumference. All educated people knew hte world was round. The problem people had with Columbus is he had a crap value for the earth's circumference. Until his dieing day Columbus believed he'd been to the East Indies.

but in the bible in GENESIS it says it is or the fact that in Revelations it says that the Bear and the power from the west will fight with an eagle Bear- russia power from west- china Eagle- us.a or the fact that evelution is retarded because if we evelutionanized from apes than why are there still apes,

msot Americans came from Europe. How come there are still Europeans? We all descended from African people how come there are still Africans? My mother is the grandmother of my niece, how come my mother still exists?

Another answer is that we occupy different ecological and geographic niches therefore we are not in direct competition. As human population expands we do come into conflict with other great apes. And they are not doing well. In 30 years your question may become meaningless as there may not be any other great apes.

gorillas, chimps, orangs, or whatever primate [fulll stop][new paragraph] judgement day is comiing soon. Heres how i see it i have a 100% chance of not having any pain after i die . If christianity is right i go to heaven if its wrong well i go into the ground and stay ther. But if non believers are wrrong they go 2 hell. Just something to think about
