That was Albert Einstein. The padlock was a trophy I got playing chess. I thought I show it off a little bit. Sorry for my vanity, I'll go back to playing the piano.

OK, no problem, and CONGRATS!

Not to say that you're not as intelligent as Einstein, but I think the piano player better fits your personality.

Do you really play'

I play a little. I would hope the piano player better fits my personality...it's me! ...and thank you, but I'm not really intelligent (not that it really matters to me) I just like to do things. Since we are on the subject...what is intelligent anyway? When God told Adam and Eve not to eat from the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, He had a good reason, and that reason reflects in every aspect of humanity today. That is that everything we do hurts us in the long run because the knowledge we "stole" from the "tree" is incomplete. We were like babies when we acquired it and we don't understand how to put it to good use. I think we all like to pretend that we are intelligent and that the things we do are meaningful, but in reality we are not learning from our mistakes, we are dying because of them and we cannot reverse the course because we don't know how. Sorry.

No need to apologize ... your response was very insightful and well thought. I agree with it all, except for maybe the last phrase, as I'm not sure exactly what you meant.

If you meant that we don't know how to reverse the course of physical death, then who could disagree with that? No matter how far science advances, it will never be able to reverse the course of death.

*"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment:" *-The Bible, Hebrews 9:27

If, however, you meant that we cannot reverse the course of not learning from our mistakes and suffering the consequences of them, I must point out that God has made a remedy for that. No, we cannot undo the deed or remove the consequences, but we can mitigate them.

Starting with Adam & Eve, God mitigated the consequences of their gaining of that knowledge without the ability to manage it properly--He instituted physical death. Imagine living forever, slaves to the vicious cycle of using that knowledge to hurt others and, as you have said, hurt ourselves! Imagine there being no exit from that! The bringing about of physical death, although part of the consequences, was really an act of mercy. God also made them coats of skins, not only to cover their physical nakedness, but to make provision for the salvation of their eternal souls that had been condemned for their sin. The shed blood of those animals pointed to the sacrifice of God's Own Son, who would shed His blood to purchase the salvation of any and all who will believe in Him. So we see that the eternal consequences were potentially removed by Christ, and the earthly ones can be mitigated by Him as well, if we will avail ourselves of His salvation.

*"... I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this'" *-Jesus Christ, The Bible, John 11:25-26

"I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. -Jesus Christ, The Bible, John 10:9-11

I know this is not a religion forum, but since the subject was brought up ...

What do you agree with about it, Pablo_?

Hi Eric,

I agree that RAE keeps doing a bad work, the don't evolve, they don't work for the language, it seems they work just for themselves, for their academic purposes.

To give you just and example, the word 'desafortunadamente' doesn't "exist", and let's see the Google results:

Results 1 - 10 of about 1,680,000 for desafortunadamente
Results 1 - 10 of about 110,000 for infortunadamente

Why 'desafortunadamente' is not the RAE dictionary?

And what is 'chatear' for the RAE?

"Beber chatos (? de vino)."

I mean, for the RAE, 'chatear' (to chat by text or by voice) doesn't exist either. Does it help? Not at all.

And I agree with this too:

Eso de una por una es bastante exagerado. El Ingles de Estados Unidos es el resultado de una mezcla de culturas las cuales componen el gran melting pot por el que es conocido este país.

What was with the padlock, Robert?

And now this new ... what, clown'

Gracias a esos señores caducos tenemos un sistema de escritura que permite que todas las palabras se puedan leer con facilidad y precisión, no como en inglés, que hay que aprender cómo pronunciarlas una por una.

"A pesar de que muchas lenguas cuentan con sus academias para analizar los usos y definir las normas que de él se derivan, el castellano debe ser la única cuyos hablantes son tratados como niños de corta edad a quienes la autoridad lingüística debe enseñar la forma "correcta" de hablar y de escribir, inventando, cuando lo juzgare pertinente, palabras "más correctas" que las que el uso estableció"

Desafortunadamente esa forma arrogante y presuntuosa de tratar los hablantes de la lengua no está restringida al español. En Brasil tenemos la Academia Brasileira de Letras, que está constituida de un bando de viejos caducos que se creen los legítimos dueños del idioma portugués. La población, en su gran mayoría, los ignora completamente.
