Are the Planets Aligned?

Astronomers decided that Pluto is not a planet anymore. Thus Xena a new planet found, wont get a vote either. Its new names for these are known as Dwarf-Planets 

 

PRAGUE, Czech Republic - Leading astronomers declared that Pluto is no longer a planet under historic new guidelines that downsize the solar system from nine planets to eight. After a tumultuous week of clashing over the essence of the cosmos, the International Astronomical Union stripped Pluto of the planetary status it has held since its discovery in 1930.

Xena, the warrior princess is bent on overcoming her dark and hateful past. She must save innocents to redeem herself, in the eyes of the world and to herself. She is aided along the way by best friend Gabrielle, a struggling bard who later turns warrior herself. Xena: Warrior Princess was a sometimes serious, often campy and an occasionally emotional rollercoaster ride of an action series. THEME: The voiceover during the theme is as follows: In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings...A land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power...the passion...the danger...Her courage will change the world. FILMING LOCATION: Xena: Warrior Princess was filmed on location in and around Auckland, New Zealand. SERIES ORIGIN: Spinoff from the series: Hercules, the Legendary Journeys. ANIMATED FILM: Xena and Hercules can also be seen in the animated film: Hercules & Xena: The Battle For Mount Olympus.

Saturn's Moon

Everything you thought you knew about planets might be wrong. In a decision that will rock the universe as we know it, the International Astronomical Union is set to rule on an official definition of the word "planet" in September.

Searches on "the planets" are up 6% over the last week, but exactly how many of these orbiting masses are out there? We've been brought up on the notion of nine planets, but recent discoveries of other icy objects floating through the solar system have cast doubt on Pluto's planetary status.

As amateur (and professional) astronomers debate the icy planet's fate, queries on "solar system planets" are zooming. But if Pluto meets the definition of a planet, we could see an explosion of newly recognized planets circle the Buzz as other icy chunks get the nod.

Some veteran space watchers are disturbed by the thought of losing Pluto as a planet. If we used buzz to decide which planet to cast aside, would forlorn Pluto get the boot? Here are the planets ranked by searches...

  1. Mars
  2. Saturn
  3. Mercury
  4. Earth
  5. Venus
  1. Jupiter
  2. Uranus
  3. Neptune
  4.  Pluto
  5.  Xena?

 

While Saturn and Mercury get a turbo boost from autos bearing their names, there's no denying Uranus's spot at the bottom of our list. If a tenth planet is recognized in September, it will come with a regal name from TV's recent past. We're sure buzz will blast off on Xena if it's officially welcomed into the planetary fold, so stay tuned to Search next month.

Evolution takes many thousands of years, in some cases millions. Just look at all the human species, whatever you wanna call them, we evolved from. Before us there was Homo erectus even more b4 that.

(the bible was written by humans. fallible humans. with little to no scientific knowledge about anything and should be disregarded in all scientific arguments.)

Science. Yes the ongoing practice of science. Fact of the matter is science is and ongoing matter of finding out. The fact of the matter it is so called science does not know anything and the more they think they know, the more they find out that they do not know. So lets just change the status of our present understanding and rename it and then in the name of all mighty science we are good for another day. And so on and so on. We do not even know how to use the little science we have for the good of man kind. Better to build a bomb and blow it up than fix it, etc. etc.
And a bunch of idots look down on God and try to fix it by science????? Amazing, how we can say there is no God when we cannot even figure out what a planit is. Dawwww, this is science, leave God out of it. How do you think the planits etc got there in the first place. Noting ever just happens. Wake up.

Now seriously, what do the planets have to do with all this religious stuff? You people need to relax. Life's too short to nag everyone all the time...

I believe in God and that comes from the word faith. Faith in God is the same in faith that there is no God. You cannot believe in God without faith that there is a God just the same as someone who has faith that there is no God. But for those who do not believe in God how do you say that man was evolved ? If it were for evolution would we not all still evolve rather than create ? If man came from a monkey would he not still come from the monkey ?
And the universe, how does an unbeliever in a higher power say that the way the universe so uniformly works in such a perfect manner, does it all by itself ? I find it very hard to think that all the planets are just there because ! That's just plain stupid !
