Go to: My family found out I'm a non-believer BEFORE MY PARENTS!

OP: How did your aunt find out? Did you accept her friend request on Facebook or something? I'd think this wasn't exactly a subject you'd talk much about to her...

The following is bad advice, given only because it might be amusing. And boy, do you need a break!

  1. Lie to your parents. On the intervention, deny everything. It will make your parents and your aunts argue among themselves, instead of being united against you. This is called the "Divide and Conquer" approach.

  2. On the intervention, tell them that you have lost your Catholic faith, and have become a muslim. Warning: this might cause a heart attack in one or more family members, depending on the amount they watch Fox News. Then, preferably before any heart attacks occur, tell them you were only kidding about having become a muslim, and they will be very relieved, and hopefully much less angry and confrontational.

Anyway, I hope you read the entire thread and try to keep things as calm as possible.

I'm not a geologist, but I took a cursory look at the references section:

Ahnert, F. 1998. Introduction to Geomorphol­ogy. Arnold, London, UK.

sounds like a textbook

Bates, R.L. and J.A. Jackson (editors). 1984. Dictionary of Geological Terms, 3rd edi­tion, Anchor Press/Doubleday, Garden City, NY.

speaks for itself

I'm kind of disappointed he didn't put Wikipedia in his references.

Our fastest rockets would take tens of thousands of years to get to the nearest stars. If those rockets are to carry humans and all the food/air they need, and provide artificial gravity, as well as have energy to slow down again when they get there, as well as protect from collisions with debris and radiation, it doesn't look possible in the next few hundred years.


If they have to carry all that stuff, I'd say the gravity will be taken care of :-)
