LOL.

I don't want your bottom or any other part of your body.

You can share your bottom with Former and Frijoles. I guess they'd be interested.

Joel--PS: Do you regularly go to a salon for a dick-cure akin to say a manicure/pedicure?

HughBe--- Would that be a cure for size or colour?
I was under the impression that you simply adored your size - all 14" of it - and that you were proud of your jet-black skin.

Correct me, if I'm wrong.

Hugh--- I feel the weakening of the body after the explosion.
The Big O.

LOL.

Whenever I try to think about sex, a strong impulse of the higher force that's always on and/or in me obfuscates the thought and dissolves it leaving my mind blank (where the sex urge is concerned).

Whenever I begin to get the rare feeble arousal, the same impulse released by the higher force cuts off the nerve sensation and with it any inrush of blood into the blood vessels of the penis stops and I am unmoved.

I do not look at a female with lust but through the eyes of a child and through the intuitive process when I become aware of her deeper impulses and inner nature.

Where sleep is concerned, I have not slept a wink for years on end ever since the higher force transformed sleep into the yogic wakefulness at all times and I feel highly energetic, very fresh and excessively alert 24/7 unless I'm attacked by an adverse force which results in discomfort.

Anyway, the supramental transformation continues in me - I'm just at the threshold of this monumental transformation of mind, vital, body and subconscient. I have miles to go, mon.

The question was , if the church put you in a cage if you didn't pay them and follow their commandments , would that make the church as legitimate as government to you?
Groups Targeted by I.R.S. Tested Rules on Politics

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/27/us/politics...

Representatives of these organizations have cried foul in recent weeks about their treatment by the I.R.S., saying they were among dozens of conservative groups unfairly targeted by the agency, harassed with inappropriate questionnaires and put off for months or years as the agency delayed decisions on their applications.

But a close examination of these groups and others reveals an array of election activities that tax experts and former I.R.S. officials said would provide a legitimate basis for flagging them for closer review.

HughBe--- Here is HughBe's system. Literature is any book, article etc. on a subject including poems, science and history.
Your off on private definitions AGAIN.

The rest of the world does not use that definition.

We are seeing a pattern here. Its hard to communicate with someone who makes up their own definitions. Whether we are talking about Judaism or Literature.

WHAT IS LITERATURE?

HUGH: "Literature is any book, article etc. on a subject including poems, science and history."

JOEL - CORRECT, in a broad or sweeping way.

Literature, as for instance - Books and writings published on a particular subject: "the literature on environmental epidemiology".

I guess by the word "literature" you mean writings, a corpus of knowledge, the printed representation of knowledge, right?

If you refer to literature in the context of language, then it specifically indicates literary works - fiction/non-fiction - in that particular language.

Those who stick to the narrow definition of any word, as for example, "literature", are born idiots with a low IQ that's evident here day in, day out. LOL.

A specific meaning can be assigned to a particular object, event, word or subject only if so denoted by the user. In this case, we stick only to the narrow or specific meaning; otherwise, any of these - object, event, word or subject - can be generic and can have a wider meaning than what the ordinary mental types think they are. LMAO.

Where History and Lit are different departments as well

University of West Indies

What EXACTLY is your notion of properly educated?

HughBe--- No doubt in the RELIGION called Judaism FAITH is the SCIENTIFIC part or arm of the RELIGION.
Yes, but you labeled Judaism as a "Faith". Any "properly educated"* Jew will tell you otherwise. Faith is a component but it is not the religion.

* I like your term - hope you dont mind me using it the way it is intended to be used.

IS HISTORY LITERATURE?

HUGH - "History is regarded as LITERATURE."

JOEL -

1) Historical narrative is literature in the sense that language/semantics is being employed to discuss, analyze, disseminate or report research findings in history.

2) I'd rather use the term "historical literature" in this context.

3) However, at the same time, I must stress the fact that we often come across cases where great speeches or writings made by famous rulers or politicians or we encounter cases where constitutional drafts and the subsequent correspondence debating its merits and demerits find their way into popular language studies (English Lit as a subject), as for instance, the profound speeches made by Winston Churchill during WW 2 can be included under English Literature for study, language analysis and knowledge dissemination.

So, there's a general as well as a specific meaning to the topic under discussion given the varied contexts.

(smiles)

Another lesson for the day but first I have noted your qualification of Judaism i.e. "is tribal in the sense".
Lesson, Judaism is a RELIGION it is NOT a TRIBE and it has NEVER been a TRIBE. There are no TRIBES called Judaism.
Explain the nation of Israel concept that you speak of.
Judaism is a tribal religion. It is only intended for a group of people. Its tied to a homeland, has a special language, and its own sacred history. Jews call themselves "a people". And there are patterns of descent that depend on lineaty.

These are all characteristics of tribal religions, cross--culturally. If you have further questions about this fact, consult your nearest anthropologist.(You know, the ones in the ANTHROPOLOGY DEPARTMENT, not the Lit department)

Frijoles-- personally I dont accept that megillah(Esther) as history.
HughBe--- List the reasons why that is so.
Do you celebrate Purim?
Do the Jews who celebrate the Feast of Purim celebrate a LIE?
OUTSTANDING matters--
do you read Esther from a scroll?
Is Esther in books?
Because I see it as LITERATURE, not HISTORY

I do celebrate Purim

GO back and read the posts between FR and I about how just because something is literature, it still can have meaning.

Furthermore, I know you have been "properly educated" but I recommend you read what the other properly educated anthropologists have to say on this matter as well.

"Literature on" implies either critique or discipline specific (e.g. scientific) literature.

Hughbe is trying to make the claim that professional Historians accept the Bible as true history. Thats a different usage.

I use the term Scientific literature all the time. That implies peer review and professional methodology.
