    always hated the "do you believe in magic?" McDonald's slogan/ commercial. shit never made sense to me, even as a kid.

    it was delicious food but there was no fuckin' magic.

    Lol, I have seen both do some amazing things. I didn't say I don't like David Blaine, I was saying to each their own regarding your dislike for Chris.

    yes i believe in that also
    it all consists of equivalent exchange



    Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange.
    "Alchemy: the science of understanding the structure of matter, breaking it down, then reconstructing it as something else. It can even make gold from lead. But alchemy is a science so it must follow the natural laws: to create, something of equal value must be lost. This is the principal of equivalent exchange. But I learned that night that some things cannot be measured on a simple scale. My brother and I knew the laws of science, of equivalent exchange. The game required sacrifice, that something had to be taken from us, but we thought there was nothing more we could loose....We were wrong."

    Good point. that must be a universal law. because we even see God abiding by that principle. in order to take away the natural punishment of sin, a man without sin had to be sacrificed. but no man was without sin so God had to do it himself. live as a man, free from sin, die as a man that recieved our sin, to relinquish us from the law of sin and death.

    pretty sure no human has actually ever turned lead into real gold using chemistry

    looked it up, couldnt find much info but the stuff i found said it has been done in a nuclear reactor...

    dont know if that qualifies as chemistry as pertaining to alchemy....

    but i also dont know much about chemistry.. so i could be wrong, i was just curious because that would be magic enough for me, just find me the recipe lol.

    apparently, it's not actually chemistry but physics which was used to turn a small amount of lead into gold. it's also not at all profitable. the recipe is in the atomic structure.

    p.s. alchemy isn't the same thing as chemistry. it helped lead to chemistry but it also included elements of mysticism which obviously were not adopted.

    Scientists have done it. i watched a whole thing about it. but they found it was horribly unefficient for the process that it took they ended up making like a grain of sand worth of gold it costed like 200k to do or something like that
