  1. Most of the passages in Christian Scripture are allegories and metaphors. To support this statement, I'm going to use the allegory of Adam and Eve from the Book of Genesis. The very FIRST fact to be aware of is that there are numerous variations. To become more familiar with any verses in Scripture it is a good idea to compare several versions, ex. KJV, NIV, Amplified Bible, etc., to make note of the differences. The BEST method to use is to find the oldest versions possible, since those are closer to the era when many of the books were written. Copy of a copy of a copy c
  2. The Blue Boy portrait is currently in a gallery at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. Thomas Gainsborough completed the painting sometime around the year of 1770. There are several interesting tales to tell with The Blue Boy. It is believed to be a portrait of the young son of a merchant who was a friend of Thomas. The name of the merchants son is Jonathan Buttall. The painting measures 70.00 inches tall x 44.10 inches wide. Gainsborough had a rivalry going with another painter named Sir Joshua Reynolds. Some believe Th
  3. Donatello : Born 1386 Died 1466 Leonardo : Born 1452 Died 1519 Michelangelo : Born 1475 Died 1564 Raphael : Born 1483 Died 1520 Donatello was in a state of decay when Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael were doing their thing. This was painted by Raphael. Raphael painted an image of Michelangelo in it. The man resting his elbow on the box at the base of the stairs, Michelangelo.
  4. Leonardo verses Michelangelo. I'd have to say that Michelangelo was the true artist and leagues ahead of Leonardo de Vinci. Leonardo must have felt that way too. He got so upset he moved out of Italy and into France because of Michelangelo. There is also an interesting element involved that I'm still researching, and will post on that after finding as much as I can on it. By the way, Michelangelo placed a self portrait in his Sistine Chapel work. And... There is a third contender in all this : Raphael.
  5. Sistine Chapel as painted by Michelangelo : Dimensions = 133' x 46' Closer view for detail: Michelangelo also painted one of the walls with what is called ; "the Last Judgement ":
  6. 23 feet x 29 feet is about right. As far as size, it may seem large, however, remember that Leonardo was competing with Michelangelo. Was going to move to Michelangelo next. It is a beautiful painting. However, believed it was mentioned, have to consider who painted it. Leonardo da Vinci is considered a master artist, yet, also mentioned previously, The Last Supper just doesn't seem to fulfill that ideal.
  7. I know a time traveler who can manipulate historical data in google trends too. Look at the word "Fubar". He followed through on his promise to manipulate a word that never reached 100, and then manipulated the historical data. Here is the proof : Can look for yourself to see he didn't photoshop the graph: ( https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=Fubar&hl=en-US&tz=240 )
  8. The Google Trends reference doesn't really mean anything JayJay. IF there had been a link posted to Google Trends that showed no spike prior to your posting of the link, then maybe it might have some merit. Saying that it was altered and posting the graph after the claim is made doesn't prove anything.
  9. Reading the Biblical verses about the Last Supper of Jesus, I decided to look at Leonardo da Vinci's painting entitled, "The Last Supper." I am aware that it is being claimed that Leonardo encoded information in his painting. I noticed that the wine chalice is missing, maybe because Leonardo believed that Mary Magdalene was the Holy Grail. The blood of Jesus contained in a pregnant Mary. Which will be discussed a bit later in this thread. Looking closer at the painting, I realized that considering who Leonardo da Vinci was considered to be, a master painter (artist), he did a tre
  10. I agree with you with the 'based on science and not belief', however, don't know that much about Scientology to say anything about it. Are you familiar with Scientology where you could share what the basics are as far as life, the Universe and everything else?
  11. What events would you hope to change? How would you handle differences in language? Even with English, as an example, the further back you go, the greater the differences.
