Count until a Pro user comments

Inspired the game over at MyAnimeList (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1518596), let's count upwards and see how far we can go until a count breaker (listed below) comments and makes us start over.
(The title is kept for historical significance. Count breakers were Pro users with 200+ followers in Season 1)

Rules:
- A player may only post once every 24 hours** or after another player has posted, whichever comes first
- A post by a count breaker (listed below) restarts the count (that post is 0)
- The count must go up in order (no missing numbers)
- A counter who holds the last post of a run of at least 10 becomes a place holder
- A counter can only hold one place at a time. If they win a run that is higher than their record on the board, their record is updated; otherwise, the run is ignored and not placed.***
- Top 3 place holders become count breakers next season
- The season restarts every 12 pages
- A run is allowed to spill into the next season, up to a maximum of one page. The new count breakers start as soon as the count is broken or when the count reaches the second page, whichever comes first.*

* Introduced in Season 3
** Introduced in Season 6
*** Introduced in Season 7

As a courtesy, if your post is wrong because someone posted before you, edit your post instead of deleting it.

Current Season: Season 10
Next Season: Page 121

Count breakers for Season 10:
- ~𝔏𝔦𝔷𝔷𝔞𝔭𝔦𝔢~

Congratulations! I personally really loved this song. It totally matched the adventurous feeling of the story you included. And the percussion is outstanding! I’m deeply impressed. Congrats on winning not only the February challenge, but the FIRST official music challenge of Jay and John’s challenges! Quite the historic event for this group! Well done, we hope to see you continue to do great things!

-Jay

WOW! Just WOW! I was blown away by your score! The adventurous feeling you somehow perfectly captured was breath taking! Not too much, but not to little. Congratulations! And I'm looking forward to seeing more from you.

RULES (Must Be Read Before Sign Up)!

Thanks for joining! If you're thinking of competing in this awesome group, there a few rules that must be announced before you sign up. 

1. No plagiarism! (No exceptions and will be removed).

2. No foul language (of any kind, includes bullying and offensive language otherwise you will be removed).

3. Must sign in first. If you compete without signing in, it makes things harder for Jay and me to ref.

4. Scores must be added to this group once completed so that we can have easy access to them.

5. NO randomly entering scores in if you haven't signed in! This will result in the unfortunate removal of the member and the score added. It makes things very hard and disorganized for us Admins.

6. Have a good time!!! :D

If you agree to these terms then type a "Y" if you agree, or an "N" if you don't agree. If you don't agree, unfortunately you will have to be removed. (These rules apply to those cheering on contestants as well). Doing this helps keep things organized and easier for Jay and me to keep things in check, and ready for a fun and friendly competition. Phew! Thanks everyone!

-John

For new members!

Hey, and welcome! I hope you find this group fun and entertaining and a comfortable place to talk to other people with similar beliefs and interests. This group is pretty active so expect your messages to blow up within a few hours 😂. Please feel open to post as much as you want. And ask questions if you have any. Hope to get to know y’all!

Is creationism a valid scientific theory?

I would say yes, it is.

The definition of a theory is:
" a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained. "

I believe creationism fits this definition for a couple of reasons:
A) It explains the world we live in based on the authority of the bible
B) Its principles are based on beliefs that superseded even the scientific method. Therefore it is not made invalid simply because it has been though to be temporarily 'disproved' by the scientific community. 
C) It forms a coherent and logical argument for the way this world works based on the axiom that the bible is a reliable source. 

For those who would argue against my view, two possible places to start are:
I) Trying to undermine the authority of the bible, because without its authority the creationism theory is pointless. This is the most effective but also the hardest means of disproving the creationism theory. 
II) Disproving the logic behind the creationism theory. This is slightly easier to do but less effective because it does not disprove the authority in which the logic is based on, meaning that a new logical explanation can be formed which fills the gaps in the old one. 

I look forward to having a civil conversation with you all ;)

Hey, all!

So, I’m not a teacher YET. But I really want to be one. But where do you even start when teaching younger kids piano? Sight reading? Cords? Showing them the notes on the piano? Do things that get them really interested in it first? What do you do? 😅
