There Can Be NO Peace in the Heart or Progress in the Mind unless one falls wholeheartedly in love with Truth and IDEALS of Eternal Realities.

Mankind is on the march toward a new and unrevealed planetary destiny.

"MY SPIRIT, YOU ARE OMNIPOTENT. YOUR NAME IS HOLY. MAY YOUR REALM BE INCARNATE IN ME. MAY YOUR POWER REVEAL ITSELF WITHIN ME, ON EARTH AND IN THE HEAVEN. GIVE ME TODAY MY DAILY BREAD, AND THUS, LET ME RECOGNIZE MY TRANSGRESSIONS AND ERRORS, AND I SHALL RECOGNIZE THE TRUTH. AND DO NOT LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION AND CONFUSION, BUT DELIVER ME FROM ERROR. FOR YOURS IS THE REALM WITHIN ME AND THE POWER AND THE KNOWLEDGE FOREVER,
AMEN.

Wisdom is not given, it is earned, and experience is the bestower.

Rejoice, for the world of ABSOLUTE TRANSPARENCY approaches, and decisions will be made according to the purity of your motives, for the eye of the Divine is an all-seeing eye, capable of glimpsing every flutter of the soul, knowing every yearning of your being and – incredible though it may seem – supporting every aspect of your own DIVINE PLAN.

God-consciousness, as it is experienced by an evolving mortal of the realms, must consist of three varying factors, three differential levels of reality realization. There is first the mind consciousness—the comprehension of the idea of God. Then follows the soul consciousness—the realization of the ideal of God. Last, dawns the spirit consciousness—the realization of the spirit reality of God. By the unification of these factors of the divine realization, no matter how incomplete, the mortal personality at all times overspreads all conscious levels with a realization of the personality of God.

the registered number of this world out of 5.6 Trillion evolutionary worlds bearing Human life.. is 5,342,482,337,666. There is nothing evil about 666. Just IGNORANCE and mind controlling.

How many feathers, or ounces of lead, do you get for a pound?

I only have the dollar conversion here.

Re: What weighs more a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?
The pound of feathers is heavier.

By default, one lead starts off heavier than one feather. Because of this, you need a lot more feathers to reach one pound. Since you have to keep adding feathers, you end up with a lot more feathers than lead. So your feathers end up heavier.

It's not hard. Learn to math.

Now, this was a discussion me and a colleague were having in grade 6. I can tell you the answer based on our deliberations and analysis. They both weigh the same.

The trick (although you dont know it) was in your delivery which misleads the brain into disregarding the fact you clearly stated a pound for each.

What grade are you anyway sonny?

Re: What weighs more a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?
The answer also depends on whether we are living on a flat or round earth.

On flat earth, the downward force of gravity acts upon the lead and the feathers equally. Therefore, they weight the same.

On a round earth model, the spinning of the earth to create gravity would disturb the feathers and cause them to rise off the ground and float away, thus the feathers are lighter in this scenario.

Determine which of these is true, and you will solve the flat vs. round earth debate for good.

The measure is a pound, regardless of what makes up that pound.

Substitute the pound of feathers for a 1 pound weight, same with the lead.
Now put both weights on a scale,

Equal .

Weigh the feathers one day, then the lead farther down the line (or the lead first, feathers later...your preference, but use a vacuum environment.) The two will have diferent weights at different times.

Go look at the SI definition for mass (a kiliogram) and what physical reference objects are used to define the standard. There are more than one reference units located in different locations around the world, and all of them have different weights (now) over time... Freaky...
