    I'd like to see something similar demonstrating the evolution of our big cities and comparing the concentrations of ethnicities to governmental policies.

    That would be interesting wouldn't it? What I have determined is the EEOC does not seem to recognize that many if not most of us are now mixed race and policies have to change to reflect a very diversified mixture of citizens. Most of my "black" have Native Americans in the wood pile and have some interesting ethnic challenges as well.

    Cool now to complete a video like this they should do the same with Detroit. That way you can see the growth and the death follow the entire life cycle of a city.

    "The birthplace of Gary Oldman..." is London's claim to historic fame? Head desk. ;-)

    In exchange for the interesting video on city development, I offer this short, vaguely-related video which I found really interesting.

    Remember when Rome, under the command of the great Augustus, subjugated half of the entire UK..and when they abrubtly left, the people began to believe them to be Gods?

    Pepperidge farm remembers.

    Except for the highland picts, who some believe destroyed the ninth legion. They couldnt give two fks about the romans. They had shrooms.

    Finally something worthwhile from Dain (Bramage) Fitzgerald that isn't overhyped propaganda. Well done Dain. You can be a good journalist if you try.

    Hello!? This is why sea levels are rising, the watersheds feeding into the rivers from urban sprawling asphalt and rooftops. Not from greenhouse gas, the global temps have been the same since industrialization. But upstream sprawl is accelerating sea levels -- unevenly, a clue that it's not the CO2. Coastal and seaport engineering adds another complication to the mix.

    It actually starts BEFORE the birth of Christ and there's no "roughly" about it since we don't actually know if Christ was ever born. BC has been supplanted by B.C.E.(before common era) in scientific circles to express this specific conundrum of "He probably didn't actually live but we keep mentioning his birth."

    Actually, I think you'll find the majority of scholars do believe there was a historical Jesus. B.C.E. was adopted to divorce scientific measurement from religious connotations.

    I didn't say scholars. I said scientists. There are a lot more Bible scholars than historians. Bible scholars are not usually scientists. Historians are usually scientists.

    @Allex_Spires Fine. I will amend my statement. The majority of scientists do believe there was a historical Jesus.

    @Allex_Spires Now we're back to scholars? I'm well aware of how both historians and religious scholars view the idea of a historic Jesus -- they think there is plenty of evidence there was such a man. Now what he preached, what his intentions really were, etc.? A different question. But while a few question whether the religion was founded by a real person, most do not.

    Do not assume people who are religious cannot also be objective or intelligent.
