    Where does gold come from?

    Once again I found something else while doing searches. I've never seen anything like this posted here before and it's been "made for dummies" like me. Enjoy!

    Everyone knows Gold comes from the Minelab God, depending on your faith depends on how much the God will provide you with Gold. Currently I am a one year convert to GPZ 7000 from GPX 4500. Much like the Christians and Muslims Minelab also provides followers with a book as well, but this book is based more on proven facts and techniques to better grow your faith.

    Thus far there have not been any radical extremist Minelaber's either; for a good reason too, why fight when you and everyone else already know the Minelab faith is superior. Hands down many agree, from North African Muslims and Nomads to Northern Ireland Catholics. Learn the faith from any of the GP denominations and you will see; gold stops the violence and Minelab wants to put you in touch with it.

    Prospecting/Mining and protecting our rights to do so.
    cute Grasshopper! I remember reading that they have made gold in a reactor but it cost about 4X what the gold was worth just in electricity to get it done.

    EDIT: Maybe we are lucky that the ol alchemists didn't figure it out. The thought of them playing with a fusion bomb is one I don't find comforting. OOOPS!!!!!

    Very Interesting Jeff! All of my gold comes from underneath rocks and there's a lot of 'space' between each piece so I can see where the video has at least some truth to it.................63bkpkr

    Ted Talks: a great way to learn more about all kinds of things! I remember watching this on my own and having a sudden realization of where gold really came from vs. where I thought it really came from.

    Thanks for the link and for prompting the revisit.

    All the best,
