Wife is pretty confident the worst of the cold spells are done for the winter, so she had me planting some hibiscus, ferns and annuals today.<quoted text>Yea, I post here when I am bored. Things are good, how cold is it in North Fl?

Former Top Judge Says US Risks Edging Near to Dictatorship
• Sandra Day O'Connor warns of rightwing attacks
• Lawyers 'must speak up' to protect judiciary
Sandra Day O'Connor, a Republican-appointed judge who retired last month after 24 years on the supreme court, has said the US is in danger of edging towards dictatorship if the party's rightwingers continue to attack the judiciary.
In a strongly worded speech at Georgetown University, reported by National Public Radio and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, Ms O'Connor took aim at Republican leaders whose repeated denunciations of the courts for alleged liberal bias could, she said, be contributing to a climate of violence against judges.

What persuaded you to believe in a Creator?
In 1990, I spent a few months in Dublin, Ireland, doing research at Trinity College. As I was traveling home with my wife, Barbara, we considered the future of our children. We also decided to visit my sister who was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. My sister gave me a copy of the book Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? published by the Witnesses. The careful research that had gone into this work impressed me. It then dawned on me that I had accepted evolution without really questioning it. For example, I had assumed that evolution was well supported by the fossil record. But it is not. Indeed, the more I examined evolution, the more I became convinced that the theory is more bluster than fact.
Then I thought about my work with robots. Whose designs was I imitating? I could never design a robot capable of catching a ball as we can. A robot can be programmed to catch a ball, but only in precisely controlled conditions. It cannot do so in circumstances for which it has not been programmed. Our ability to learn is vastly superior to that of a machine—and mere machines have makers! This fact is just one of many that led me to conclude that we must have had a Designer.

Why did you become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses?
In part, it was because Barbara and I liked their thorough study methods. I was especially impressed with the research that goes into their publications. Solid research appeals to people like me, who want to probe into the details of things. For example, I became deeply interested in the many prophecies, or predictions, in the Bible. My study of those convinced me that the Bible really is from God. In 1992, Barbara and I were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

I thought you were against religion being taught.
Oh, I see. You're not against satanism. That religion is ok.
Your hypocrisy is showing.

Jehovah Witnesses debating the end is near in 2014.

Now for the rest of the story.
Social rejection has been established to cause psychological damage and has been categorized as torture.

Tipping point for California. New census data shows Hispanics will outnumber whites sometime in 2013.
Does that mean I have to press 2 for English from now on?
#94533 Feb 1, 2013
That is false information! First Jehovah's Witnesses do not debate! We know the end is near but the scriptures plainly says no one knows the day or the hour....only the Father knows!
If you are bound to post misleading information at least try to make it believable!
TIME OF THE END
An expression found six times in the book of Daniel. It refers to a time period marking the conclusion of a system of things and culminating in its destruction. The prophet Daniel was given a preview of events to occur in the distant future. Thereafter he was told:“And as for you, O Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the book, until the time of the end. Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.”—Da 12:4.
#94534 Feb 1, 2013
The expression “time of the end” does not mean an ‘end of time’ but denotes a period of time that culminates in the end or destruction, not of all things, but of the things mentioned in the prophecy. That time itself will not end is made clear in the Scriptures. For example, the psalmist said concerning the earth:“It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever.”(Ps 104:5)
Jehovah's Witnesses has made that so plain that some religions now have resorted to calling it not "the end of time" but "end times"

Do you want to debate me on that? LOL
#94536 Feb 1, 2013
You post whatever you want and if I care to respond to it I will but I absolutely do not want to debate or argue over anything.
If you have questions I will be glad to answer them if I can.
You have a goodnight.

You're living proof the Bible is correct, and true!
Not that I need any proof from you, as God showed up, and Saved me!
If Satan didn't exist, you wouldn't be on here posting yer ignorant stuff... Think about it!

I study a lot of it...
I know Information does NOT come from non-intelligent material, life does not come from Non-life!
The odds of the building blocks of protines coming together to form one piece of DNA is an astronomical improbability!
It seems funny how your bias against a creator blinds you from many facts like that!
Maybe some Paint molecules will gather to cover yer house...
When that happens... do let us know!
I will always stick to what I "Know" to be the truth...
He saved me, and proved to me (and many many others) to be real!
May the Lord bless you with Real wisdom!

You've seen the Ica stones? Right?

Yer Bias is showing!

1 There is a difference between realtionship, and religion!
2 God has a place in Every life!
3 Not angry... sad!
Here is who's angry!
My first belief in God, and Jesus... didn't tether me, as I (I) Still did wrong, and Went my own way!
He did save me from the Evil I was in to, and He can save you too!

Good Day , all... As the say
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
