In God we trust

    Newer Older

    What does the coin say?
    Y? In God we trust.
    In God we trust. Y?

    Here are some factoids, all directly from the U.S. Treasury

    1. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War.
    2. IN GOD WE TRUST first appeared on the 1864 two-cent coin.
    3, The use of IN GOD WE TRUST has not been uninterrupted. The motto disappeared from the five-cent coin in 1883, and did not reappear until production of the Jefferson nickel began in 1938. Since 1938, all United States coins bear the inscription.
    4. The motto has been in continuous use on the one-cent coin since 1909, and on the ten-cent coin since 1916. It also has appeared on all gold coins and silver dollar coins, half-dollar coins, and quarter-dollar coins struck since July 1, 1908.
    5. A law passed by the 84th Congress (P.L. 84-140) and approved by the President on July 30, 1956, the President approved a Joint Resolution of the 84th Congress, declaring IN GOD WE TRUST the national motto of the United States.

      Hey, could we use this image in our Pangea Day short film entry... we'd be using it in a very fast montage, it'd appear for only 2 frames and we'd of course put you in the credits (please send me your full name).

      You can check out what Pangea Day is at It's quite wonderful!

      Thanks so much!

      When this Old World starts getting you down. From Pollution the cost of OIL,
      Heating Fuel,The Fuel you put in your Vehicles, You Electric Bills from
      cooling air conditioners and lights not to speak of the Evil. The TAX that all
      Governments Federal, State, County and City put on everything they can thing of.
      They are supposed to serve us. Not put a burden on its people. That they are
      elected to serve all the people you, not their own Pocket Books.

      The Wicked keep putting higher taxes on everything. Making it a Heavy
      Burden on many that are already struggling just to put food on the table.
      Too many Americans have lost their home to the tax collector or to foreclosures
      from the unjust bankers greed. More are out of work and lost their homes then
      in the GREAT DEPRESSION, in the last ten years. All Americans and many Nations
      need good jobs and more of them. Not more TAXES.

      All Taxes need to be lowered now while there is still time to save America.

      There is a Industry that will employ workers and is growing by more then 50%
      every year. There is a clear way for all up on the roof the Sun Light is free
      fuel from GOD. Some wicked in Government have been backing Coal, Oil, Gas and
      the Nuclear industries for too many years. These kickbacks to them were called
      Subsidizing Industry Technology. Most all Wise Men and smart Economist and
      Environmentalists call this padding their pockets and subsidizing back to the
      Stone Age.

      This might even been funny in the 1960?s. If it were a Fred Flintstones and
      Barny Rubble Movie. About How to aggressively systematically work with the rich
      to Pollute Ground Water quality to the point it is unsafe to drink or use.
      So to they make a law you can only buy water from their pipe line. And to make
      the air we breath full of Toxic Gases, Sulfur Dioxide and more Radioactive
      and Acid Rain. Injuring all living things on Earth.

      With Fred Flintstones to the Rescue. To help create a Healthier Environment.
      For all Future Generations. By spotlighting Renewable Energy and Free Energy
      like Wind and Solar. On his and his neighbor Barny Rubble’s roof. Even though
      the greedy wicked would do everything to stop or slow them down.

      Just imagine a dream that a 100 years ago one of the smartest man to ever
      live had. A dream after working with Sun Light. That all on Earth would use
      Free Energy Solar Energy.

      That Dream also shared by a man that dreamed this over 2,250 years ago.
      Both These men showed the world in their days. That this dream of Free Energy
      Solar Energy World wide was very possible. Both of these two wise men had
      first hand worked and researched their experiments for not just days, weeks
      put for many years.

      One of these men used chalk on Black Board the others board was a black
      stone table or floor covered with white sand and used a stick. One of these
      two Brilliant men had Kings from all most every Kingdom on Earth come to him
      for advice.

      The other went to almost every nation on Earth. Freely on his own dime
      Teaching All that had ears to hear. He would win the Nobel Prize for doing so.
      For his work on Solar Energy. Only after years of doing research and when most
      Scientist on Earth would not take the nomination for the Nobel Prize in 1921
      this Brilliant scientist was awarded it in 1922 for the 1921 year.

      Now if this was just a Pretend TV Show or a Movie from a dream. This would
      be a great Sci Fi Story Line. In the 1960?s or even better to day. Sci Fi story
      Movie or dream No.

      All that i Have told you did actually really happen. Albert Einstein won the
      Nobel Prize for what? When Government leaders asked him to go on stage. To
      address the Scientific Community and the World. About what he was given the
      Nobel Prize for. When Albert Einstein Had done so. He addressed them with his
      other accomplishments. For years most Governments did not have a ear for
      Einstein’s Dream.

      Archimedes around 250 B.C. was know most of the World over as a great
      Mathematician. One of the first Scientist and Inventor of many things. Even
      the first Laser Ray from the Sun’s Energy. Science Fiction is what you would
      have though you were seeing if you could go back in time, it was real.To day
      we call it The LASER, Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission. Back then it
      was just called Amplification of the SUN Archimedes Death Ray.

      Thousand of years later it would be a Laser. That Albert Einstein help
      make possible. That would unlock one of the first books on Earth.
      The METHOD written by Archimedes. Then over more then 250 years later. When
      well Faded was cut from a scroll and put into a book form, to be easier to
      hide from the Romans by St. Paul. This book sold for over 2 million dollars.
      In New york at Christie’s Auction House.

      These two are at the top of the list of the World’s Greatest Scientists,
      Viewed by Scientist around the World.

      Sad that for the last 25 years or so of every teacher asked no matter what
      Grade k through 16. 80% of them did not know Archimedes. Even sadder 90%
      of them could not tell you what one of the most Brilliant Scientist to ever
      live on Earth. Won the Nobel Prize for.

      It was for the work Albert Einstein did to show the World it could get
      Free Energy, Electric from the SUN. PHOTOVOLTAICS

      You ask this question to any Military general 95% of them will get it right.
      Even more surprising 99% of them will know more about Archimedes then most
      Teachers on Earth. Generals know Energy is the key to Winning.

      At almost one thousand to one Archimedes always won against what all knew was
      impossible odds. Archimedes home town city of Syracuse was victorious against the
      greatest Kingdoms Armies on earth many times. Syracuse once was one of the most
      powerful cities in the World.

      I can only ask you to please look into Solar Energy, Solar Power, Solar Panels
      and Solar array on the internet under Images. To see and explore for your self
      then you be the JURY.

      More then 10 years ago the Internet became most of the World’s Universities
      Learning Platform. A Modern Day Archimedes Resource Center.

      The Solar Energy Industry in the year 2010 has leaped ahead farther and
      faster then any other industry on Earth. The Solar Industry in the
      United States of America alone, has grown by more then 50% in 2010 and it looks
      like that number will go up even higher this year 2011.

      The strong benefits of Solar Energy is Clear Clean Air viewed in major cities
      as improving air quality. Clean Cities. By all that use there brain for good .
      View it as protecting the environment and Freedom from OIL.

      While the Federal Government has eased the Tax on Renewable Energy till the end
      of this year 2011. Some cities in the states that these Legislators come from have
      worked against these tax credits.

      By doing so they are showing their true objectives. That they have
      stock in some power plants and do not want to lose all that Money they
      have been taking out of your pocket books for too many years. By taxing
      you on your Energy Bills. They want to Control Power and Tax Everything
      they can. Not let People be free to get their own power from the top of
      their own roofs.

      By adding their own taxes to them. These wicked leaders think that
      this will take away the incentives to harvest the Free Energy from the

      The Public ability and awareness for all on Earth to use the Natural
      Solar Energy, is Contributing to Production of Solar Energy Products.
      Making the Solar Energy Industry the fastest growing on Earth. A Wealth
      of Free Energy From The SUN.

      The more the wicked try to slow the Solar Energy Industry down, it only Enhances
      involvement and the efforts of the Good at Heart.

      GOD Bless you for reading this.
