During the Olympics when I saw the flag carried by Ethiopian athletes, I knew the flag was "wrong". Thank you for reminding me why.

Gotta love foreigners trying to tell Ethiopians what is right and wrong. Forget trying to understand the meaning behind the star on the flag, lets just sit behind our computer and judge everyone else.

As far as I know, the star symbolises the diversity and unity. I have read that the old flag remains popular with followers of Haile Selassie, which might explain why Gebre posted the image.

You are correct, he is a follower of Haile Selassie. He views the emperor as infallible.

Christ appearing in the Old Testament:
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Great. :)
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Fun with thick wooden sticks?

You can use them for "sword" duels. Or smack others on heads or backs without any reason.

Yep.  The metric system was invented because the Eurotards were having too much trouble remembering anything that could not be counted on their fingers.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.
