PROVE to me that the person in the coffin cannot hear.
gods are indeed imaginary but NOT the Creator God. I talk to Him everday.
You can talk to a rock if you wish. It doesn't mean it hear you.

It is not incombent on me to prove the negative that the rock can not hear you. It is on YOU to prove otherwise.

Same with your god and dead friend or relative in the ground.

Former---In your own mind, of course you can do or be whatever you want.
HughBe-- Such an approach would reduce my mind to your level.
You claim to NOT have a powerful imagination? That would be too bad.
HughBe wrote:
Former-- What do you mean by spititual existence?
HughBe--- a lifeforce that imparts life to people and is their true essence. In your mind, are you merely physical?
I don't understand your definition. Oxygen, food and water impart life. Photosynthesis imparts life. Cell division etc.

Am I merely physical? I'm open to other theories but haven't heard or seen anything yet to make me think otherwise.

Have you? Please share any miracles you know of.
HughBe wrote:
Former---I realize in history that Jews were enslaved. Is this what you mean?
HughBe--- how could I mean that? I speak of today and for a long time they have had those who have lord it over them and would DARE to think that they can strip them of their identity IF they don't comply with their LYING teachings. The Jewish people need to challenge the DECEIVERS and LIARS. Use history, the FACTS of the BIBLE etc. and LIBERATE themselves from MENTAL slavery.
Couldn't this be said of all religions, governements etc?

I haven't noticed Frijoles complaining of these issues and he strikes me as an intelligent individual.
HughBe wrote:
Former--What is a Jewish "overlord"? I don't know this term.
HughBe--- rabbis/masters
Why not just call them "rabbis" etc.

Why do you choose to deride them?

Doesn't this show a lack of respect for one of the oldest religions on earth? Even older than your own.
HughBe wrote:
HUghBe--- beliefs noted. Share the. The real issue was YOU casting ASPERSIONS on the Jewish people. My question remains, above.
Former--I do not see this as disrespectful.
HughBe-- it is. You question their INTEGRITY. They hold it up as FACTS.
Most of the world holds beliefs which I do not share.

Am I better or smarter than all of them? don't know

If and when we ever learn this, it will probably be too late.
I believe most of them are sincere in their beliefs so I don not generally question their integrtiy unless they are asking for money. Life so many of the Christian TV preachers.
HughBe wrote:
HughBe-- Again, do you hold a view as to how man came into existence?
Former--3rd time - NO, I not.
HughBe--- STRANGE.
Former--I also don't hold a view as to what you had for breakfast today.
HughBe--- Strange comparison and strange position above.
I accept not knowing.

You feel the need to follow a man-made explanation and you build your entire world around that faith.

That is the difference.
HughBe wrote:
HughBe --Why are some people SMARTER than others? Is it PHYSICAL traits?
Former---Combination of things.
HughBe--- tell me the combination.
Nature vs nurture.

"The nature versus nurture debate concerns the relative importance of an individual's innate qualities ("nature," i.e. nativism, or innatism) versus personal experiences ("nurture," i.e. empiricism or behaviorism) in determining or causing individual differences in physical and behavioral traits."
HughBe wrote:
Former--Racism is real. No argument here.
HughBe--- People need to move away from such an approach it only breeds hostility and other negatives.
Yes, racism, as homophobia, is wrong.
Blaming anyone for soemthing beyound their control is wrong.

rabbee: well if you even sandwitch in even a few lies, with some facts. then everything in it, is still a lie. this whether you bracket the facts with lies, or bracket the lies with facts or interleave facts with lies. it's all still a lie.

and a belladonna flower is not a rose, no matter what ficticious name you give to it. nor should you add, leavening to any name. to make a false name sound true or a true name sound false.

THE SOURCE for my tuth, is not from anyone in this whole untrustworthy world. so i must defend, Only THE SOURCE of my truth. because nobody else on this planet, is determined to speak for Only HIM. when i was physically born again as a child, i only spoke to G-D as an unwitting defiant child in HIS Presence. but i am still TheHis male child, but no longer speak to HIM in defiance.

Here are the FACTS.
1.Judaism is a RELIGION.
2.Jews are a RACE.
3.Many Jews don't embrace Judaism. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
4. Your rabbis have in this case spoken truth when they said that Moses would not be able to recognize things attributed to him. Did not Moses command Israel not to ADD to God's words?
5. You rabbis say, "F" God, "F" Moses WE shall do and say the things that WE want to.
6. Judaism is based on mind control and enslavement of the Jewish people and many have recognized it and left it.
6. Judaism VIOLATES the commandments of God and is CONTRARY to the WAY of the Eternal.
yes, we all know you have opinions and judgements about people's and religions other than your own.

This was the key paragraph

Many Israelis refer to Maale Adumim, along with two other large Jewish settlement blocs in the West Bank, as “consensus” settlements -- areas of the disputed territory that will remain part of Israel in a two-state solution. And the residents of Maale Adumim reflect Israel’s consensus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: They want a peace deal but are skeptical that the conflict will be resolved anytime soon.

put simply, when one country invades a sovereign country and at end of hostilities they've gained territory, they get to keep it..historically true in 1948. When same country invades again and loses territory,(1967) they throw tantrums and other deadly stuff until the UN gives in,(2012).

Perhaps so. Their "consesus" at the end was more or less what I was saying.

"In 1947, the British government announced it would withdraw from Mandatory Palestine, stating it was unable to arrive at a solution acceptable to both Arabs and Jews."

The UN and Harry Truman should have taken a lesson.

George Marchall knew it would never work.

There is nothing "simple" about it, contrary to your pronouncement.

On a lighter note, how is your language training coming along?

As Secretary of State, Marshall strongly opposed recognizing the state of Israel. Marshall felt that if the state of Israel was declared that a war would break out in the Middle East (which it did in 1948 one day after Israel declared independence). Marshall saw recognizing the Jewish state as a political move to gain Jewish support in the upcoming election, in which Truman was expected to lose to Dewey. He told President Truman in May 1948, "If you (recognize the state of Israel) and if I were to vote in the election, I would vote against you."[32][33][34]

after I started on the Rosetta stone, I determined I couldn't proceed until I was comfortable with the alifbaa (Arabic). Thats how I started Hebrew, and Russian altho I really am not so interested in Russian..maybe later. I didn't like not being able to read the Arabic signs when I was in israel, although ak47 icons are pretty self-explanatory. Anyway, I've got the alifbaa handled now, so back to it. Fyi Rosetta was having a really good sale on any language. Anybody seen Maat , she ok?

HughBe--- Have you ever seen people talking to graves or people in coffins?

Former--You can talk to a rock if you wish. It doesn't mean it hear you.

HughBe-- Is this really an answer to my question above?

HughBe--PROVE to me SCIENTIFICALLY that the person in the coffin cannot hear.

Former--It is not incombent on me to prove the negative that the rock can not hear you. It is on YOU to prove otherwise.

HughBe-- I am waiting for the proof.

HughBe-- Such an approach would reduce my mind to your level.

Former--You claim to NOT have a powerful imagination? That would be too bad.

HughBe--- Note the word REDUCE. Your ?, makes no sense.

Former-- What do you mean by spititual existence?

HughBe--- a life force that imparts life to people and is their true essence. In your mind, are you merely physical?

Former--I don't understand your definition. Oxygen, food and water impart life. Photosynthesis imparts life. Cell division etc.

HughBe--- I did not expect you to grasp the concept the first time. Is FOOD a life force, in your mind?

Former--Am I merely physical? I'm open to other theories but haven't heard or seen anything yet to make me think otherwise.

HughBe--- on the occasions that you think, are the toughts physical? Is there SOMETHING more than the physical?

HughBe--- how could I mean that? I speak of today and for a long time they have had those who have lord it over them and would DARE to think that they can strip them of their identity IF they don't comply with their LYING teachings. The Jewish people need to challenge the DECEIVERS and LIARS. Use history, the FACTS of the BIBLE etc. and LIBERATE themselves from MENTAL slavery.

Former--Couldn't this be said of all religions, governements etc?

HughBe--- I would say NO with respect to ALL religions. Now tell me about YOUR govt. and apply my points to it.

Former--I haven't noticed Frijoles complaining of these issues and he strikes me as an intelligent individual.

HughBe--- Frijoles is a BLIND, DUMD sheep of his overlords. If he was a truth seeker and if INTELLIGENCE was there he would have SERIOUS problems with it. But birds of a feather Flock together.

Former--Why not just call them "rabbis" etc.

HughBe-- I call them that as well i.e. masters=rabbis.

Former--Why do you choose to deride them?

HughBe---They deride themselves. If you were not asleep most of the times you would have learnt about them.

Former--Doesn't this show a lack of respect for one of the oldest religions on earth? Even older than your own.

HughBe--- poor chap. Judaism today is a MODERN construct that the overlords have said not even MOSES would recognize it. You seem to have comprehension challenges.


HUghBe--- Why are YOU casting ASPERSIONS on the INTEGRITY of the Jewish people.?

Former--I do not see this as disrespectful.

HughBe--- YOU cannot see.

Former--Am I better or smarter than all of them? don't know

HughBe--- Interesting comment.

Former--I accept not knowing.

HughBe--- very little.


HughBe --Why are some people SMARTER than others? Is it PHYSICAL traits?

Former---Combination of things.

HughBe--- tell me the combination.

Former--Nature vs nurture.

HughBe--- elaborate. In your mind, are we talking about BEHAVIOUR or intelligence?

Read your quote again.

"The nature versus nurture debate concerns the relative importance of an individual's innate qualities ("nature," i.e. nativism, or innatism) versus personal experiences ("nurture," i.e. empiricism or behaviorism) in determining or causing individual differences in physical and behavioral traits."

Former--Yes, racism, as homophobia, is wrong.
Blaming anyone for soemthing beyound their control is wrong

HughBe--- Like Frijoles you never fail to create an opening to champion your cause i.e. HOMOSEXUALITY.

Have you critically considered the BS that you have written?

HughBe--- Indeed the ROOT is deeper and it goes way down to the DNA level or BIOLOGY. It is not the superficial religious beliefs.

Understand this, Einstein. God made a covenant with the JEWS. Einstein, they/Jews EXISTED when the covenant was made. They had a JEWISH identity when the covenant was made. Go tell your masters to CORRECT these facts of HISTORY.

Seed of Abraham, seed of Isaac, seed of Jacob etc. YES the root is very deep and goes down to the lowest possible level i.e. DNA.

I have no interest in claiming ETHNICITY. List the ethnic groups in the US.

The Jews who do not speak OUR language are they "apart" or "a part" of OUR ethnic group?

1.Jews are a RACE of people. Religion does not give you a Jewish NOSE. RACE does.

2.DNA testing is done by Jews to determine RACE and not RELIGIOUS beliefs.

3. The imporatnce of the patriarchs or FAMILY e.g.Abraham and the importance of LINEAGE is RACE and NOT religion.
