Yh, so what is it then? Who do u think the 2 trolls are?
I told you my hypothesis.

Just read through the posts and you will see.

1. Trolls lie. They tell so many lies that they cannot keep their story straight.

2. Trolls will say anything to get your goat. If they think that they can insult your mother will get to you, they will insult your mother. Would christ do that?

3. Trolls who create puppets get their puppet characters confused. They will mess up on language, time zones, family history and so on. If you read their posts for a week or so, they will screw up.

The problem is, a real fundie will do much of the same things as a troll.

1. A fundie will lie their asses off because they feel that lying is OK, if it saves souls.

2. A fundie, like the westboro baptist freaks, will do and say anything to get to you.

3. A fundie will try to use numbers to convince you that you are wrong. To do that, they sometimes need to create a puppet or two to support their views or a puppet or two to fight and easily defeat works for them as well.

Building projects require measurement and blueprints, even if they are just a sketch. Especially when a high degree of precision is expected or observed. Dave don't you know that?
Interchangeable parts are pretty hard to manufacture without precise communication skills in abstract. With the Greeks we know their math and language. With ancient South America we know so little about their methodology and semantics.
Evidently they did fine without it.

Knotted cords were one method of communication. They could have others we aren't aware of. And don't forget it was the priestly class that did those things. Special schools with privileged schooling.

You don't need fancy plans drawn up to do those things. Playing by ear with education in fundamentals could do it. Standards can be set by templates sent. They had different ways of doing things. You can't judge by the way we do it. Whatever it was surely was based on ratios, and not fancy math. Look what the Romans did with Roman numerals.

Note in an earlier post about the tripods creating cutting and drilling guides. The standardization they exhibited there points to mass production of that sort. Jigging up and cutting by those templates. Then you just have to transport to site and assemble.

Any plans on paper or wood surely were destroyed by the humidity or used by survivors for kindling and fuel.

Marriage has never been about "love". It has always been a breeding contract.
This "love" thing they like to push is bullshit pulled from romance novels.
Individuals can be fuzzy headed and survive. When society itself gets fuzzy headed, it will die.
So then all marriages are suppose to be arranged. Why do straight people break tradition then?

Um, no, it's called a disability for a specific reason. Overcoming it only overcomes it, and forces you to waste a lot of learning resources to do that, placing you behind in almost all other scholarly pursuits. A person with dyslexia operates at about 10% lower IQ than they actually have, because of the dyslexia. A larger brain doesn't mean more intelligence either, moron.

I noticed that you cannot stay with one translation. Pretty scarey stuff! I wonder what kind of god would really do to their creation.

god the father, huh? What kind of father would do that to their children? When my children messed up, they would get punished and then had to sit on their bed to think about what they had done. After that, they would come to me and apologize; I would let them know that they were forgiven and then it was over. Your 'father' will torture his 'children' for eternity? Sick fu[king bastard if you ask me.

Is it also a complement that you have a very serious mental illness called DELUSIONAL DISORDER? You have proven time and time again that you are unable to tell that which is REAL from that which can only be imagined. You believe that a place called HELL exists. You have no proof, only the scribblings of a holy book written so long ago and translated so many times it can't be used for anything. You IMAGINE hell exists, you are convinced that this place is REAL:, yet you can't tell us anything about this place outside of your holy scribbling. You also think God is real, Heaven is real, angels are real, demons are real all without a shred of proof. That is the PRIME definition of someone with that dreaded illness called DELUSIONAL DISORDER. Seek professional help, like really soon dude!!!!
