Yoga is a movement in consciousness from the anisotropic effects to its isotropic causes - a movement from the particulars to the generals.

The attainment of the equilibrium condition in consciousness-energy field - perfect stasis - is the highest aim of Yoga.

The Personal God of the various religions - YHVH, Baal, Moloch, Baphomet, Vishnu, Brahma, Ahura Mazda and others - is a product of the concentrated will of the Yogi that becomes an anthropopathic extension of the Yogi's personality in the universal energy field. Each religion has its own Personal God and besides there exist in the universal energy field millions of such created anthropopathic formations unleashed by the mind power of the Yogis. LOL.

Forever disproving the concept of artificial intelligence.

We may never be destroyed by Skynet, but at least our call centres will be safe.

I shudder at the thought

Speaking of shuddering, after much thought, I am thinking I did see the 79 Trek movie after all - not the reboot. Which was why I was probably disappointed. But little did I know at the time that to REALLY experience the force of the revelation of the original series, one had to watch stoned late at night in college.

curious choice of a quotation by a guy that continually prophesies supramental doom and gloom.

There was a great drinking game we played in university with the Original 'Star Trek'-- anytime a character said, "Warp Factor ....", "Damnit, Jim ...", "Fascinating", or "Energize", we took a drink. No one was sober by the ending credits.

That's very socialized of you. A more capitalist version would of pitted one against another until the most efficient drinker survived. Was this before you accepted Ayn into your heart?

That was good research! I agree but I always wondered why
he wouldn't cop to it.
But now he's off to some Klingon/Dingleberry convention so we won't
hear from him for a while.
I heard they just like to hang out (at those conventions).

I think we, or I, ruled out the 7th Day thing. I dont remember why.
I know a few of them, and they tend to be nonjudgemental. They definitely get along with Jewish people - no rivalry. At least the few I know do.
The Gay Jamaican also once told us he attends more than one church - he rotates. Probably because no single church will allow him to stay too long as he probably gets on their nerves.
I posted a link a while back showing the Church of God (7th Day) to be very anti-Semitic. I'll see if I can find that post or the link again.

I can only speak from personal experience - data set equals two. The wife of a good friend of mine, and a neighbor that I have interacted much with over the years. Both of them have been curious about my background, and neither of them have "invited" me to socialize with their church or shared any strong beliefs with me.

I think, bottom line is, regardless of tribal affiliations, that some people are nice people, and some people are not. We know where the Jamaican stands on this spectrum.

Once again, please read and respond. I am taking my questions one by one.
Ezekiel 6:5 And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of ISRAEL before their IDOLS"
What did GOD call them?
Who were they worshipping?
PS: If you make an HONEST attempt at the above I shall ignore the rest of my previous post. I shall introduce another point and I want us to reason together.
Finally, keep your misguided/lying and foolish opinion about who is a Jew to yourself and the spiritual PHARAOHS of Judaism aka rabbis and FOCUS on the words of God or what is found in the Tanach.
Now son, do as you are told and you shall see the LIGHT.
I don't believe in god so you will have to probe me in a different manner.

Also, I lack the biblical knowledge to respond to your query, Mr. Queer.

Oh Former dear, here is more help for you and the god-men of Judaism.
It is NOT the other point that I spoke of, it is just one of many passages that call you and them LIARS.
Your point is, once a Jew does not follow Judaism s/he is not a JEW.....
You couldn't be more wrong.

And point out where I actually wrote the words you attribute to me.

A Jew will still be Jewish ethnically if leaves Judaism. He will be an ethnic Jew but not a religious Jew.

I know we have covered all this before and no doubt Frijoles is laughing at me for even engaging you on this subject yet again.
