    If you believe that the Paluxy River tracks are evidence of Humans living in the time of dinosaur's I would move to exclude you from a jury if I was in court. The preponderance of evidence is those are not human tracks. This quote from you is...

    I don't curse (use words that the site prohibits.) You actual can curse on this site if you don't use bad words. Kind of depends on your meaning for the word curse. I admit to trying to get people to change their behavior but I never said that they...

    You don't seem to understand that there is only one God. The God who created the Universe. You should consider thinking about God and Religion as two separate things. I am not trying to create a religion. Have you once seen me say please join my new...

    That is right I am trying to get more people to focus on doing good things here on Earth while they are alive instead of just thinking that believing in Jesus and praying more is more important than doing good works and not sinning. What do you...

    I don't "demand that He (God) meet your (my) requirements" I tailor my beliefs according to the evidence. Oh, why do you refer to God as he. God is God, I don't expect that gender is appropriate. What spurious sources are you talking about?...

    I think you would be going the wrong direction with a heavier bullet. The heavier bullet will have more recoil (muzzle rise) and longer in the barrel time (muzzle rise) so I would expect it will make it shoot higher not lower. At less than 25 yards...

    I would say 5 or even 8 is too soft and 15 is harder than you need and you are unlikely to be that high anyway. Of all your challenges, the BHN might be the simplest. It does not look like your lead stash will make very hard bullets. If it was...

    I think loading smokeless powder in old and known to be weak guns is a bad idea. If you are only shooting it rarely why not use black powder use a case full, no air space and then you should be good. Tim
