I drink bottled water because my well water smells. 

I wonder what's down there?

In the early 20s, my teenage great-uncle went missing. Family thought there was a possibility that he had fallen down their well.  ::puking:: That never seemed possible/likely to me. About 15 years ago, while researching family history, I found out the great-uncle had actually hopped a train to New York and started a new life for himself, so he was never in that well.

A few people in my town put in sand point wells for watering purposes. It's always obvious which homes use well water because their sidewalks and driveways are rusty red with sediment stain.  I have two rain barrels in the back I use for a lot of watering.

If it isn't a deep well, it could be cedar leaves, etc that affect the taste.

RB, I don't follow Paul. I follow the Spirit of God and Jesus. There are many who try to feed us the false doctrine of original sin; that we are made in the likeness of Adam, the sinner, and are incapable of righteousness, thereby giving us a different image of ourselves. However, God knows who we are, what we are made of, and what we are capable of doing and achieving since He is the One who created us. Psalm 8:4 "What is man that You take thought of him and the son of man that You care for Him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God and have crowned him with glory and majesty." Each one of us is of great worth and value; having been given the gift of life, the gift of His Spirit, NOT for sin but for good works as it says in Ephesians 2:10 "For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has prepared beforehand , that we should walk in them." He also made us to have dominion over the Earth as is said in Genesis. Since the truth seems to get lost through various means, Jesus came to remind us and bring us back to the knowledge of who God created us to be and to show us the way. We are instructed to put away our sin and FOLLOW Him. Once we come to this knowledge and do so we, are able to fulfill the purpose for which we were created and "move mountains". "With God anything is possible." This story of is illustrated in the story of Peter. As the disciples were out in the boat, Jesus was walking on the water toward them. He called to Peter to come out of the boat and join Him. However, Peter sank because he had no faith in the fact that God had given him the power to do such a thing. There are many people in the past and in the present who have followed the Spirit that God has given us and have testified of His greatness. It is because of this, we are told that we have no excuse(Romans18-21).

Until there's a consensus, I'll continue to sip my Pellegrino on a daily basis.

Which Mineral Water Is Best?

In terms of overall nutrition, I’d have to pick Gerolsteiner, which comes from Germany. It’s the highest in calcium—a liter provides a third of your daily value. It’s also got a decent amount of magnesium and is relatively low in sodium. San Pellegrino, from Italy, would be my second choice. But, really, any mineral water (with the possible exception of super-salty Vichy) is a healthy way to get your fluids and a bit of extra nutrition as well.


Ohh, thank you so much, Victor! This sets my mind at ease. I'm going to be looking for that German mineral water, Gerolsteiner, and give it a try.

I can't stand the taste of bottled water. It either tastes like chlorine or plastic to me. Love my well water.

You can only pray and keep on trying to reconcile. Him dating other women is foolish and he may well be lying as to what he has done with them. I disagree with Red, you DO need to know what he has done with these other women, how can you get back together unless you are both honest and open with each other? If he has committed adultery( or had any sort of sexual/physical contact) then you absolutely need to know that before any reconciliation can take place.

In the end you cant force him to reconcile, but I cant see how you can even attempt do so with you so far apart. The home you shared isnt just his, its yours as well, he had no right to throw you out. I would move back there and get back into you home first. Then see a pastor and get some Christian marriage counselling.

Contrary to what scientist assert, theory denotes unconfirmed hypothesis with an undeserved and usually nonexistent concensus. Scientist tend to fall back on the false notion of "consensus" on evolution. And of course there is NOT a consensus. Same with man-caused global warming. Warming is happening, but the extent of man made causes is debatable, but not to the many scientists concerned with what their peers think. Hence the false confidence of something's voracity is whether it  is "peer reviewed". That only means people that agree with you have reviewed or offered a review. Kinda like me claiming my cofc doctrine is peer reviewed......by other like minded cofc-ers.

As to evolution, anyone can see and admit that micro evolution occurs, but it is a MUCH different notion to assert macro evolution unequivically.  It could be to some a somewhat plausible explanation of things, but so is intelligent design. One takes faith, the other takes a lot of faith. You decide which.

But theories do NOT confirm. They may qualify as AN explanation, but ate not THE explanation as in the law of gravity. They lack confirmation or they would be law. ie, the flat earth theory is just a theory attempting to explain an observation and not confirmed. Theories are only "regarded" as true by those who hold to the theory.


I would agree for the most part but the flat earth is not a theory, it serves only as hypothesis since there is no observable data to create a theory.
