Man...I've been trying to explain to my nephew that the Earth's not flat for a minute...Kyrie's tweet was like confirmation for duke :lol: I'm gonna try to get him to sit and watch Cosmos and old Knicks games. Between the Cavs love and the flat Earth, I'm not sure which one I need to focus on changing.

That child needs prayer....

What, no comment on The Great Sign In The Sky?!?

Sons, I am disappoint.

Ancient Knowledge. Religious Philosophy. Planetary Science. God. You name it.

Or is it just a bunch a' Hooey? A meaningless coincidence. Some counting fraud. Much Ado About Nothing, ultimately. Either way, think it through yourself.

September 23. A date of repute.

I heard someone talking about this the other day. Count me in on team pseudoscientific hooey. Just one more in the seemingly endless false armageddon predictions that we hear multiple times every year

This 'sign' incorporates the movements of the Earth, the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Jupiter. If you Believe the Hype, this convergence marks time in the thousands of years.

Meh. Why do people equate such things with death and destruction? Can't the things people use to predict doomsday mean something good for once? The last few doomsdays were boring.

None really. I guess he's trying to spark up a discussion on how it relates to the other things he mentioned: "Ancient Knowledge, Religious Philosophy, God".
