      Humm, anything? Don't be ridiculous.

      Can you fit a live camel through the eye of a needle?

      Can you escape the pull of a black hole at the event horizon?

      Can you walk on Jupiter?

      Can you suck a piano into your lungs?

      Can you eat the entire sun? I like that one, thanks Zelkiiro,

      Can you swim the pacific ocean unaided without stopping.

      Can you dig a whole to China?

      Can you jump to the moon?

      Can you jump to Andromeda ?

      Can you successfully hide behind a hydrogen atom?

      Can you live from a million years.

      Is anything possible? Perhaps you should reword your question.

        Just out of curiousity, why are you limiting what can/cannot be done to the physical realm? Just because you can't do it physically, doesn't mean it can't be done astrally, or in another realm. wink Perspective is everything.

          Oh wait, good idea. I'll just jump to the astral realm and try to jump to Andromeda...
          Nope can't get there to try. In this realm it's impossible to jump to Andromeda and since we can't get to any other realms we can't try to jump to Andromeda there.

          Thanks for making an addition.

          We can't get to other realms.

            Yes we can. I do it nearly every night. You just have to learn how. It takes time & effort but it is most certainly possible. Thousands of other people around the world do it as well, so I'm not the only one in case you were wondering.

              Sure, that's called dreaming, but dreaming is not the same as reality. In your dreams you can just to Andromeda, but in reality (when awake) you can't.

                No it's not dreaming. If it were dreaming my friend wouldn't remember the same things I do when we talk about it the next day now would we. Nor would I be able to do it while being conscious of it & feel it in my physical body. And my friend wouldn't have had the experience of waking up with a bruise of teeth marks when it was in the astral that she was bitten. I'm not saying you should or shouldn't believe, that's up to you. But just because it's not something you are willing to accept into your reality, doesn't mean it doesn't exist in someone elses. And just because you haven't experienced it, & accepted that experience, doesn't mean it isn't real or that it won't one day make itself known to you whether you want it or not.

              It is truly amazing what science has provided us, too bad the religionists have to fight science all the way. If not for them, Galileo might have been the first man on the moon.

                I thought the Church and the Jesuits support Galileo until he wrote "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems", I believe the pope saw it as a personal slur, but then most people in power hate being challenged.

              Very true, Silverspeeder. We've came so far in such a short time, it really boggles the mind if you really sit and think about it. My grandparents which are in their late 70s and early 80s are completely dumbstruck at just how many things they have seen come about in their lifetime. Makes me wonder what my grandchildren will someday see and witness!

    Hello Rayne123 and jacope! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I'm at this point of, duh, the more inquisitive I become, the more I observe, study, experience and question, the more I keep thinking, 'Hmm, well, I guess anything is possible.' I find myself saying this more and more all the time. And then, I find, the more I say it, it's like another door opens. Like you were saying, jacope, it's all about perspective for sure. I guess I must've been very, very closed minded for far too long and that's funny because I've always took pride in my open-mindedness (so I thought)! Ha smile

        Why are you so negative? I would say this fell under the category of philosophy and not religion so why the immediate animosity? If mysticmoonlight walked in to a hospital and told a kid going thru chemo that anything was possible and to stay positive, would you spout that same statement? I mean there's disagreeing with something and then there's disagreeing with malice and a few ppl here can't seem to keep the venom out of their speech. I don't get it.

            Rad Man, I made this statement as just that, a statement. Not necessarily as a personal statement of insistance. I didn't mean to present this statement necessarily at a slant of which way I was leaning toward to imply whether a participant was necessarily agreeing/disagreeing/unsure with ME, I was just asking for philosophy on it. I apologize if I did put a personal slant on the statement that angered you or triggered a 'how dare you' response from you. I wasn't necessarily absolutely insisting that anything is possible, per say. I was curious how people really feel about this statement because it is a saying that is very commonly used in America and I wanted to hear people's view on this commonly used statement. It certainly wasn't a statement meant to induce a verbal punch in the face, just "asking" a philosophical question to trigger philosophical answers.

            My apologies to all for the confusions if there were any.

            MysticMoonlight, I don't know about anyone else but I certainly didn't see anything wrong with the way you worded it. It's a simple question, and most people seem to have taken it as such. It is no fault of yours if anyone chooses to be offended by it, that is their choice & I doubt it would change no matter how you had worded the question. Please do not try to take the blame for the way others choose to react to a simple question, that it not a burden for anyone but those people to carry. We are all responsible for our own words, actions, & reactions for they are ours & no other's.

    Disagree. with God all things are possible...not so with us mere humans. It sounds good but untrue, it's inspiring but points out immediately our limitations. A 60 year old man can not play pro football, his speed is lost ,his mobility is limited and any injuries would be slow to heal. We can however achieve many things we have the ability to do. Education being one of the easiest, as long as you can read and write. Starting a business at 80 with prior knowledge and capitol..um..not so much.

      Don't be sorry for starting it. It provides a wonderful opportunity for people to see that they are not alone in their beliefs, whether they shared them or nit, and for others to expand their awareness by seeing what others views are & accepting that, whether they agree with it or not. Just because a few have tried to change that by forcefully discounting the beliefs of others does not mean they have succeeded. You have made a possitive difference for people with this topic regardless of the little bit of chaos that followed it.

            You have yet to provide any information or explanation whatsoever for your claims. You expect others to just wholeheartedly agree to your ridiculous assertions and fabrications, but that's not the way it works. Reality doesn't even agree with you, let alone people. If you feel compelled to come here and write nonsense, you should expect others will call you on your nonsense. Running away from your responsibilities only shows dishonesty and deception.

    Could police officers have imagined a drug like bath salts that would cause a man to behave so violently that he would eat off the face of his victim, taking 5 bullets into his body without stopping?

    The intention of the thread is that things we never thought possible, are indeed possible. Getting caught up in semantics like, 'Can a leaf fall to the ground and turn into a human'... is missing the point of the OP I believe.

    There are harder things to believe than that there is a supreme being... especially in a world where apparently a third of Americans believe in Aliens.

      You're confusing ignorance of the world around us with the myths and superstitions of religions by use of fallacies. You should really try thinking these things through before posting them.



      There may be harder things to believe, but your God is one of the hardest, so much so that it has become a laughable joke.

      Ahhh, Beth isn't there a passage in the bible where men were attempting to get to the moon, which upset God?

      Actually it's very easy to believe in God. It's comforting, that's why it's so popular, it's difficult to except that there is no afterlife. But, it's reality, so suck it up Nancy.

        No, they were attempting to build a tower to Heaven.

        Two crew members from the Star Trek Enterprise just beamed down to the planets surface... they are wearing red shirts. How long do you think they have to live?

      Indeed it is odd. Not so sure that messing with nature is healthy for these guys/people. It may give you the dream body sure but no one really knows what long term effects are in store. But then again, if you're on up there in age, who cares, right? What have you got to lose anyway? Might as well live it up while you're livin'! Hehe

        So long as he is not stressing his joints too much, I don't see how exercise will be doing him any harm.

          Oh, I thought it involved taking HGH (human growth hormone). I was under the impression that it was still being debated as to whether it is actually safe. That is what I was referring to.
