I guess that the term "photographic memory" really does apply to him.

@Icekpal: I agree.

@Everyone: Pretty amazing stuff. Another proof that we didn't come from some stupid Big Bang. There is a god. And he is all powerful.

Noureddin - Exactly what does god have to do with someone having incredible talent?

That said - WOAH! I was blown away by the detail Stephen was able to retain. I mean, he was in a helicopter for 45mins above a city he had never been to. Incredible.

There is no logical way to prove the existence of a god, therefore this can't be "proof" that there is one.

That said - guys like Stephen make me wonder what the rest of us are doing with our brains!

Gotta agree. as for his mistake on the pantheon, I think, THINK, that its the steps near the bottom of the dome which he left out.

This guy has an amazing ability! :D Gotta agree with icekepal and noureddin, except, of course, it was the great God Jehovah [ ????? ] who created us and gives us every good and perfect gift. (I didn't bring God into this, they did. I just wanted to give praise to our creator since they started it... ;) )

In reference to my comment in number 19, the question marks are the Hebrew spelling of Jehovah, but I guess Snotr's comment boxes can't recognize them.

First off, I don't mind jews. So, I won't say anything. But, Just say "God" or "Allah" Both mean the same. Allah is arabic for god so doesn't matter which way you say it.

And to the moron called: MsZoomy

"What name you want to call HER into"

omfg... I'm not a good example for muslims so don't say all muslim believe everything I say but... God is not human. God is not a HE OR A SHE... But if he was human it would a SHE. Enough with the feminist bullshit. I'm sick of people saying: "Jesus was black!" "God is a woman" "No! God is a woman"

God made what this guy into what he is. He gave him the power he has now. I'm also SICK OF ATHEISTS... Go to hell. Literally.

Here's the thing. God is not a human and he no gender. If there was a god it would be a guy. This is plain facts. I will be flamed with fags and feminist losers but hey... What can you do about it.

Jesus IS NOT god nor god son. The son of god came from the Egyptians when christian(I'm not sure if Christians were alive back then but it was the) crusades came to Egypt also... Rome was influenced by the Egyptians aswell. They got SON of god from the Egyptian's SUN GOD... SUN... SON... Simple. Thats also why sometimes at church jesus has a sun behide him.

This Sun god and son of god stuff is actually very true and aswell ... proven... I think they had it history channel recently or will have it.

Nonetheless... Enough of this god stuff cause I doubt there any people that have a religion(And satanism/Atheism does not count ...sorry. its just true)and if they do have one they don't study it... snotr fails when it comes to community...
