Jesus is God & He loves you Jesus will soon be seen by all men, women, and children up in the clouds. Jesus is returning now! Believe and be saved. Exodus 3:14 (God speaking) And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. John 8:58 (Jesus speaking) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was I am John 10:30 (Jesus speaking) I and my Father are one. Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, *The everlasting Father,* The Prince of Peace. Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, *God with us.* John 1:1 & 14 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh (Lord Jesus), and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 8:24 (Jesus speaking) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. John 14:9 (Jesus speaking) Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Hebrews 1:1-3 & 8 (God calls His Son "O God" because Jesus IS God in the flesh) 1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; *and every eye shall see him,* and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so Amen. Isaiah 44:6 (God speaking) Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Revelation 1:8 (Jesus speaking) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, *the Almighty.* Revelation 22:13 (Jesus speaking) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. --- There Are None Righteous / How To Be Saved Romans 3:10 & 23 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Luke 5:31-32 (Jesus speaking) 31 And Jesus answering said unto them They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 1 Peter 3:18 (The word “quicken” means “to make alive”) For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works lest any man should boast

Reading the posts here... everybody is in awe... now wake up ! I'm in IT... so I'm a slave to technology. Carbon nanotubes are a serious technological advancement but, since most humans can't acquiesce that we are a careless spiecies, to what extent nanotubes is an advancement when : "Anthropogenic carbon nanotubes were found in all samples, indicating that humans routinely breathe such nanostructures." Look it up... most of us already have some in our lungs. "...it is well established that long carbon nanotubes (Poland et al., 2008) and large aggregates of short ones (Kolosnjaj-Tabi et al., 2010) can induce a granulomatous reaction. Based on asbestos-like pathogenicity, it is believed that bio-persistent fiber-shaped nanomaterials that deposit in the lungs can cause oxidative stress and inflammation and could translocate to the pleura, ultimately leading to fibroplasia and neoplasia in the lungs and the pleura (Guarnieri and Balmes, 2014).

@Low Eel molecular materials are just too young. Only 200 years ago did humans produce aluminum, the only reason it got quickly developed was because it was a metal. Ceramics goes back way before copper.

@Matias Su there was too much to develop, and a little came out. This is the point. Compared with 5 years if investments in ceramic materials, 30 years of grahene filled newspapers of empty promises, and then produced very little...
Matias Su

@Low Eel because ceramics are far ahead. Graphene was new, there was still much to develop. I get what you meant now, you are angry/disappointed that fundsand manpower were taken from ceramics.
Low Eel
Low Eel Pirms 16 dienām
@Matias Su because in Europe most of funds were and are from taxes. (also university is paid from taxes, we don't have "student debt", university is effordable). But what I see is, a very productive sector, about ceramics, was abandoned bcause of this hype, the buzzword "graphene". Which, at the current state of art, after 30 years, gave us 10% of what research on ceramic materials can give in 5 years. Never research money were so little productive as with Graphene.
