The True Meaning of Christmas

Not Dam Spots

What’s that on the dam wall? Look closely! It’s one of those things you have to see to believe!

This is the DigadelCinginodam in Italy – can you see the little dots on the wall

You’ll never guess what they are…(the correct answer is not “dam spots”)

They are European Ibex and they like to eat the moss and lichen growing on the wall. They also are licking the salt off the stone. Isn’t it incredible they can stand at that angle ?Just when you think you’ve seen everything!

It’s turtles all the way down!

Turtles-All-The-Way-Down1The origins of the turtle story are uncertain. One recent version appears in Stephen Hawking’s 1988 book A Brief History of Time, which starts:

A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: “What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise.” The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, “What is the tortoise standing on?” “You’re very clever, young man, very clever,” said the old lady. “But it’s turtles all the way down!”
—Hawking, 1988
