I know what you said. 170 miles does not make that much differences. It certainly does not make 7000 miles difference. I have checked once again the coordinates I listed do not show anywhere near Oman. Therefore you must be a liar. Here they are again. These coordinates take you to a double runway airfield in the far east NOT the middle east.

Interesting that you decided to actually use the CORRECT lat/long descriptor..

you're learning, slowly. One doesnt use "d" for 'degrees'. next time do it correctly.. and as for your 'zipperhead'.... EVERYONE in the 'Nam'. knew it well including the FNG's!

Curious, have you gone back to Vietnam...? Simply curious, I know two guys who did a few years ago, on a trip with other Vets. Blew them away to go back so many years later...see what is there now, versus what they recall...

I used the correct numbers every time. Topix will not permit you to directly type in the degree symbol. And I just tried the coords I posted first and as typed they don't go anywhere. Guess you are still a liar! I served for several years before and after my 2 tours and I never heard "Zipperhead." Just because you found it on an anonymous website does not make it true. Just like the word "Sloat"

I didn't but somebody I served with did. He took some pictures of his A team location and compared then and now. Now it is overgrown jungle with only a few piles of overgrown stones where .50 cal postions had been. A movie was made about some of his later exploits and George Clooney portrayed him in the movie "Men who stare at goats." The second page of his site has several disclaimers about the book and movie and a picture of the OH6A we were shot down in. Google earth is as close as I care to get to those "good ol' days."

Diodn't say I didn't like "SMilies" I said I was not a bowl full of smilies. Somebody said almost the same thing to me yesterday. At our monthly men's breakfast someone asked my why I was limping. I said I was in a helicopter crash. When he asked when I said, "September 11, 1968." After I filled in the details he said, "Wow I'm hearing real history right here."

If Jesus was GOD ...

1- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Mark 12:29 Jesus said "Here, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord." The words "our God" indicate that Jesus had a higher God over him, a stronger God than him. Jesus didn't say "Your God". He said "our God" which includes Jesus as the creation of GOD.

2- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 20:17 Jesus said I ascend to my God and your God? This tells us that we and Jesus have a common GOD.

3- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 8:28 Jesus said "I do nothing of myself"? Can't GOD do anything he wills?

4- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 14:28 Jesus said "My Father (GOD) is greater than I"?

5- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Luke 23:46 Jesus said "Father (GOD), into thy hands I commend my spirit"?

6- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Matthew 19:16 Jesus said "Why call me good, there is none good but One, that is GOD"?

7- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Matthew 26:39 Jesus begged his GOD to have mercy on him and to pass the cup to death (kill Jesus in another words) before Jesus goes through the pain of crucifixion?

8- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 18:38 he didn't reply when he was asked about the truth?

9- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Matthew 24:36 Jesus told his followers that no one (including Jesus) knows when the judgment day will come, only GOD knows?

10- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Isiah 11:2-3 GOD had put the spirit of fearing GOD in Jesus?

11- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 5:31 Jesus told his followers that if he (Jesus) bears witness of himself, then his record is not true?

12- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 5:30 Jesus told his followers that he can't do a single thing of his own initiative?

13- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 5:36-38 Jesus said that GOD had assigned him (Jesus) work and GOD is a witness on Jesus?

14- If Jesus was GOD, then why in John 5:32 Jesus told his followers that they have never seen GOD at anytime nor ever heard his voice?

15- If Jesus was GOD, then why did he pray to his GOD in Luke 5:16?

16- If Jesus was GOD, then why in Matthew 26:39 Jesus fell on his face and prayed to his GOD?

There is a story behind the bowl of smiles!
Those that serve our country I have alot of respect for cause you have fought for the freedoms we have today in this land. So thank you for giving us what we have. Yes I am a Christain and I wouldn't have the freedom if it wasn't for people like you. Freedom was and is not free! You paid my price!

I'm half Welsh. In England, there are a few derogatory terms for Welsh people, most of them involving sheep in some way (because, you know, there are tons of sheep in Wales)!

I was only vaguely aware of the sheep thing...I know they love them sheeps and lambs...

But like I said, If I heard a term I didnt know was derogatory, and was a commonly used one for a group - it wouldnt bother me to use it, or have it used towards me. Plus, I'm not part of that culture, so the insult - if I learned about it - would be of no concern.

But can you list a few, would love to know one or two for laughs? Or are they not translatable...?

These among others are of course controversial to the subject of Jesus' godhood, used by one side in the early days when the matter of his status had not been decided, nor a matter of Doctrine.
