a real event?

Not so.

Was Noah's Ark real as well?

Did Moses part the Red Sea?

Great stories though.

Tough balancing act.
There were some. So instead of removing the hazardous trees, they removed all the trees, including those with no defects, and those that were leaning away from the road, and those whose fall zone was not even near the road. It was a logging operation, not a selective cut. And then the paper published puff piece on how nice a thing they were doing. The Merritt Parkway Conservancy rolled over totally on this one.

All they had to do was remove a selected number of the trees.

You speak for all 2 Billion Christians? Even the secular Christians, the Humanistic Christians, the Bhuddist Christians, and the 7th Day Adventists? What about the Eastern Orthodox who dont even SHARE the same day? What about the Muslim Christians?

silly you are

I know many Christians who CELEBRATE the holiday. But I cant think of single one who buys into the story literally. Maybe on your island.

HughBe--- You called it READING then RECITING and NOW CHANTING.
Impressive and no doubt it is a reflection of your equally impressive educational system there.
I am not sure I know, or want to know, why any of that makes a difference.

I dont do the chanting. The leader does that. I follow. Is that reading? I would think so. Is that reciting? Whats the difference?

Actually you did more than that by casting aspersions on what I have asserted as a FACT.
Forgiven.
I have every logical right to cast aspersions. You spend your time here saying the dumbest things about Jews and Judaism. At the same time, you also claim to have Jewish relatives.

Either you dont share these dumb ideas with them. Or they dont speak to you anymore.

Or more likely from a logical perspective, you are FOS with NO Jewish relatives

Frijoles / Former,

How goes it? I see some things never change.

The homophobic, anti-Semitic Jamaican is still playing silly word games.

The conspiracy theorist is still obsessed with the bogey man.

And the former Yogi is still craving attention.

Happy Memorial Day!

HughBe--- Understood, not everyone strives for improvement. I actually got a British based education. Now they are copying the American system and are lowering the quality.

Former--Too bad. The worst you can hope for is to become a super power one day.

HughBe--- did the US become a super power after the Korean war?

Former---It's about WHAT one is practicing, not the practicing itself.

HughBe--- What is practised will not change the fact that repetition will make one get better and better and eventually perfect.

Former--If you wish to get "better" at doing something the wrong way, then follow your own advice.

HughBe--- My son, be it good or bad, repetition will lead to perfection of skills. Take the case of crooks they practice over and over to get better at what they do. Were you ignorant of this?

Former--If faith is belief without evidence then why do you keep talking about evidence?

HughBe--- My faith has EVIDENCE but what kind of EVIDENCE?

Former--Faith by definition requires no evidence.

HughBe--- My definition has an EVIDENCE element.

Former---If you have evidence, you do need faith.

HughBe--- Correct at the lower level of thinking and reasoning. The evidence that I have gives me FAITH in the unseen.

Former--Silly 'tard.

HughBe--- I am a silly retard to you but to me you are "SPECIAL".

Former---We know who made the car.

HughBe-- WE know but I don't know. I have NEVER met a car maker. Common sense tells me that cars don't drop out of the sky.

Former---Can we all agree they are made by humans using machines?

HughBe--- Ok but the real principle is that things are MADE. Can we agree that OBJECTS don't make themselves?

HughBe---When I see the vastness of the universe I see the EVIDENCE of a Maker. I do NOT see the Maker but I see the EVIDENCE. The same principle for the car.

Former---Big difference.

HughBe--- WRONG. IDENTICAL is the correct word.

Former--We don't know anything about who or what made all this.

HughBe--- I know about the Maker from what is made.

Former---No you don't. Lies and deception.

HughBe--- Let me use your words to comment. Previously YOU said, "We KNOW who made the car" and now you are accusing me of LIES. Explain to me my source of KNOWLEDGE about the car maker.

I have never READ ABOUT ANY CAR MAKER. WHAT I KNOW ABOUT CARS comes from my personal experience of the driving it plus the experiences of others. In essence I KNOW about the car maker ONLY from the cars/products.

We meaning car maker and I don't socialize nor do we attend the same church.

Former--You insist on making things up and then worshiping that thing.

HughBe--- You insist of sitting on your brain. There is NOTHING that you know of that is not made. Some are man-made while others are made a Being greater than man.

Former---I know that I know nothing

Socrates

HughBe--- Not totally true but the principle is correct.

Former---I thought you said you had a good education??

Wow. I had heard they were making a comeback in the area. The wooded area bordering Stamford/Greenwich behind the Subaru dealership off exit 6 appears to be their home base.

The worst I've seen in my area is a fox, but they are fairly docile and scared of humans.

Frijoles, the moronic DECEIVER---You speak for all 2 Billion Christians? Even the secular Christians,...

HughBe---Compare his IDIOTIC and self-contradicting words below. By the way is this the same fellow who repeatedly sits on this forum and speak for ALL Jews in a RELIGIOUS context? YES.

He speaks as if ALL Jews are religious and he is without excuse but he is a SLAVE to his masters.

Frijoles---Christianity is a FAITH, not a tribe.

Frijoles----Even the SECULAR Christians

HughBe--- I take it that in the RELIGION called Judaism some of its members are SECULAR and some RELIGIOUS.

Everybody knows that such things are mutually exclusive but the Judahites don't know. Pathetic.

There are NO SECULAR Christians. Christianity is a RELIGIOUS system which is the opposite of NON-RELIGIOUS or SECULAR.

Frijoles is just trying his DECEPTION because he wants to push the LIE that Jews cannot be IRRELIGIOUS or SECULAR.

He wants to help his masters to push the LIE that JEWS =RELIGION and it has NEVER meant that. Such is the EVIL of these people.

I am only a mile from there. Did someone tell you this?

Our theory is that they are living in the Westover school area.

I am not amused by any of this.

I like route 8 a lot. I plan on hiking a bunch in Litchfield and E Hartford via that corridor. Despite the local lore about that valley and all the fun we used to make of the people who lived there when I was a kid (hillbillies of CT).

Been reading a great book on CT geology - "The Face of CT". Did you know that you live in the red soil area of CT?(brownstone valleys with basaltic trap rock ridges, formed back in the days of the dinosaurs (Mesozoic) under a tropical climate - just like the Newark basin in NJ)
