How come you got New Zealand right but were nowhere near a stylized map of Australia?



Now that I'm looking at australia imagining a perfect way to describe it's shape, it looks like pacman with spina bifida about to eat Tasmania for points.

Some info about Manila, the capital city of the Philippines:
Quote
Manila is by far the largest metropolitan area in the Philippines, and the second largest in Southeast Asia after Jakarta, Indonesia. It is the commercial, administrative, cultural center and chief seaport of the Philippines. About 12 percent of the population of the Philippines is concentrated in the Manila metropolitan area. Manila is also the major destination for tourists who visit the Philippines. Coconut trees, giant kaleidoscopic lamp posts, and various cafes line the Baywalk, the perfect location for tourists to view the afternoon sunset.

Why? You don't believe what is posted?
 Elijah, you have been directed before to post the sources of any text you copy and paste from the internet or other media.  It has nothing to do with believing what is written or not, but rather for the administration to avoid any and all seeming violations of intellectual property and copyright laws.  Call us paranoid, but this is how the upper administration of this site wants things.  For your continued obstinance in this matter and for protesting a basic moderatorial directive in public, you are being given a green warning dot for the next 30 days.  If you feel this is in error, please PM Fr. George or FrChris.  -Schultz.

This thread is for pictures, it could be paintings of the church, as well, that you saw and like. It would be advisable if it is educational as it is a christian forum.  For today I like this one:

"A beast rose from the sea
it started to blaspheme
You watch out, satan might get you
He will never let you go
Jesus can help, He has won
He is the Messiah
in Him you must believe

Don't let satan treat you as a friend
Satan comes to collect his souls
Jesus saves you if you want to
It's up to you to make the choice
give your life to Jesus Christ

Jesus is the one and only
He was crucified for your life
You got to have faith in the Lord
He'll save you from eternal death
give your life to Jesus Christ

You've got a choice, that you must make
It's up to you, to live or die "

- 'Jesus Saves' by Antestor

The Catholic site is close to that idea.  Perhaps, I can email them and the Orthodox site and ask them if I can send them some icons.

Take a look at this.  Now imagine anyone you know that look like these people.

These are first century Egyptian portraits.

I think I look like this guy:



Can you imagine the time?  This guy might have heard about a man named Jesus causing quite a stir in Palestine.

Actually this might be more me.
