"There's no evidence that the Adventist Church ever practiced human sacrifice." is an absurd statement and suggesting the Adventists are religious fanatics like the cult People's Temple is foolishness. The Seventh Day Adventist Church is a Christian denomination of which the standard beliefs can be easily found by a Google search. The church was formed out of the Baptist Church/Millerite movement. They don't believe and never have believed in human sacrifice. They are known for their belief of being conscientious objectors. They may be looked at as strange because many are vegetarian or vegan, they do not drink or smoke, and focus on healthy living. They base this on 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, our bodies are gifts and "temple[s] of God"...that a body should be cared for as such. Very disappointed in how you kept coming back to their beliefs and suggestions of strange practices.

A submarine hit by two torpedoes becomes structurally unsound and - if submerged - implodes. If this sub then sunk to the mentioned deep, I doubt it can be found. It will disintegrate and spill it's content over a vast area. My guess: either the I-52 hasn't been hit by two torpedoes or whatever they found is not the I-52.

In WWII submarines were not "permanent underwater vehicles" like today, but submersibles - boat that can dive for a very limited time, but travel mainly on the surface. Therefore some of your narrative is wrong plus it may explain why the I-52 was such an easy target, when surprised on the surface.

Correction: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints does not have 'Single Activities' at their temples. Members meeting regular church buildings and temples are not used for everyday service. If you want a more in-depth look at this case check out the podcast: Cold.

The Samaritans mentioned in the New Testament were a racial mix of Jews and Assyrians. Some more Jews were forcibly converted to Islam or Christianity. Modern DNA testing has already found how to find Levites and may eventually let us sort them all out. The whole concept is a misnomer.

The writers clearly didn’t consult any actual musicians regarding how Strads’ quality can’t be defined or quantified. Any violinist know that certain instruments just have a certain “thing” that makes them special. Instruments handmade by a specific person will obviously have the stamp of the maker’s style on them!! My violin is no Strad but I wouldn’t trade it for anything because it’s an extension of me when playing. Plus many Strads are made extra special by the owners who play them!
