Barack Obama, our next President

Thought you would find this both interesting and enlightening:
Translations such as the King James Version (translated by Englan's King James) are derived from existing copies of ancient manuscripts such as the Hebrew Masoretic Text (Old Testament) and the Greek Textus Receptus (New Testament) and are not translations of texts translated from other interpretations. The primary differences between today's Bible translations are merely related to how translators interpret a word or sentence from the original language of the text source (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek).
There is widespread evidence from which today's Bibles are translated remarkably for absolute reliability. There are more than 14,000 existing Old Testament manuscripts and fragments copied throughout the Middle East, Mediterranean and European regions that agree dramatically with each other. In addition, these texts agree with the Septuagint version of the Old Testament which was translated from Hebrew to Greek some time during the 3rd century BC. The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in Israel in the 1940's and 50's, also provide phenomenal evidence for the reliability of the ancient transmission of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament) before the arrival of Jesus Christ. The Hebrew scribes who copied the Jewish Scriptures dedicated their lives to preserving the accuracy of the holy books. These scribes went to phenomenal lengths to insure manuscript reliability. They were highly trained and meticulously observed, counting every letter, word and paragraph against master scrolls. A single error would require the immediate destruction of the entire text.
The manuscript evidence for the New Testament is also dramatic with over 5,300 known copies and fragments in the original Greek, nearly 800 of which were copied before 1000 AD. Some manuscript texts date to the early second and third centuries, with the time between the original autographs and our earliest existing copies being a remarkably short 60 years. Interestingly, this manuscript evidence far surpasses the manuscript reliability of other ancient writings that we trust as authentic every day.
Homer's "Iliad", for example, the most renowned book of ancient Greece, has 643 copies of manuscript support. In those copies, there are 764 disputed lines of text as compared to 40 lines in all the New Testament manuscripts.

Just FYI. I learned something new by reading this too.
That's your problem, Lorac.

You never recieved a decent education, despite your lies. So you think anything you find on the internet is the truth. DUH

Religious scholars laugh at your sort of simplicity and ignorance.

UYnless you've learned Aramaic, you have no idea what the contents of the original writings in the Bible say. Even the translation to Greek was very problematic.

Some words do not translate from one language to another, but I'm sure that's way over your head.

Meanwhile, you told us all we need to know about your parochial ignorance when you said you didn't know the USA had firebombed German and Japanese cities.

Yes, America has more than it's share of war crimes, in spite of your ignorance of it all.

You've managed to keep your head in the sand, or up your butt, for over 60 years. Too late for a blockhead like you to changd

Romney 48%
Obama 48%

In the Swing States survey, 37% call themselves Democrats, down 4 points from 2008; 29% call themselves Republicans, up 3 points. The percentage of independents is 34% now, 32% then.

(The majority of independents support Romney)

Romney continues to hold an advantage on the economy which Americans identify as the most important issue this year by far. Voters prefer him over Obama in handling the economy by 3 points and in handling the federal budget deficit by 10 points. The former Massachusetts governor is seen as a stronger leader and the candidate who could do a better job managing the federal government.

"New Evidence Shows Poll Watching Efforts Target Minority Precincts"

" Poll watchers from groups ostensibly targeting voter fraud are headed primarily to minority voting precincts on Election Day, lending support to the argument that their real goal is to suppress the African-American and Latino vote.

A partial list of precincts targeted by a Pittsburgh Tea Party group working on behalf of the Republican Party shows that nearly 80 percent of the voters in those precincts are African-American, compared to 13 percent countywide, according to civil rights and union groups who on Monday called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate.

An Ohio political blog is reporting that forms submitted to election officials by Tea Party spin-off group True the Vote in Franklin County -- which includes Columbus -- show poll watchers heading to 28 precincts, where most voters are African-American. Overall, the county electorate is 20 percent African-American.

"We've been concerned from the beginning that the efforts of True the Vote and aligned groups were going to be targeted largely in communities of color," said Eric Marshall, manager of legal mobilization for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. "We've seen in the past where these kinds of tactics can lead to intimidation and harassment of voters."

A potentially even greater concern now is that the groups will use the voter challenge process "for the express purpose of creating lines and confusion," Marshall said.

Prohibitively long lines, particularly where Democrats are in the majority, are a net plus for Republicans; extraordinarily long lines for early voting in South Florida resulted from Republican Gov. Rick Scott's rollback of early voting days there."

Mr. Romney has made strides in improving his image among voters and has reversed Mr. Obama's strength in 2008 among independents. The Republican now leads among independents, 47% to 40%.

Mr. Obama won half the college-graduate vote in 2008 while Mr. Romney now leads among that segment, 52% to 42%.

On another front, a group of more than 500 former admirals and generals put their names to an endorsement of Mr. Romney which will appear as an ad in a number of newspapers Monday.

Republican voters showed higher interest in the election than did Democrats, while interest among voters under age 30, an important part of the president's coalition, was far lower than in 2008.

Isn't that special.
Chris Christie knows when to take care of business in his state and when to go campaign. Obama could learn a few things about that.
Christie does LOVE Bruce Springsteen, so of course he would want to talk to him. What's the bfd?
