Sorry. It sounds like there was a death of somebody that you knew and cared about. I didn't know this poster, although the name looks familiar. Didn't s/he start one of the megathreads?

You don't seem to have any friends, even among the Christians. They have repeatedly rebuked you and described you in unflattering terms since I entered this thread - much more so than any of the skeptics posting. Why do you suppose that is?

The truth is a respecter of no one so if people want to rebuke me for it then that's fine.
So, if nobody respects you, you must be telling the truth? Didn't your god say something similar about scorn and contempt? Is that where you got that?

Wow, get over yourself Andy, nobody is buying your "I'm such a misunderstood victim in here" routine. You see Andy we've all seen you in action before. And just like before you're not fooling anybody. So take your "I'm so disappointed" and "I'm so angry" game down the road Andy it's not going to work in here (and if I can borrow your word) FELLA!!!

<<<Hands Andy a tissue to use for his crocodile tears
First of all, you don't own this thread friend. Second; I'm not speaking to anyone else in here but you regarding this issue, so I'm not concerned who wants to buy, sell or trade my "routine" (as you put it).

I notice much of the time, when I speak to a few of you, you like saying "we". I wasn't aware I was addressing a group of people. Sure, this is a public forum, everyone can read, but unlike you I'm not in here for positive hits and likes, i really don't care who wants to like me or not like me for what I have to say, but I try my endeavor best not to make hypocrisy be a centerpiece of my post unlike some people...including you just now.

So really, you can try convincing everyone here about your innocence and they may well side with you because you may well be the >demi-god< WSJLM and that's ok too, but you're not convincing me of anything and you're not fooling yourself. In the post you're responding to (which you again evaded by not addressing it properly), I explained how when I first got here how the lines were CLEARLY divided. there was a trouble maker posted well established here that hated your guts and hated Skom and another poster too. I listened to both sides of the argument. That poster was hostile but tried to get me on his side, but I didn't join him.

He became more and more aggressive as time went by. It got so ugly that I was warned by Topix and lost my Editor status and he and some of his sock puppets were eventually booted off. He came back with a similar name but we generally ignored him afterwards. I don't remember if your issue was heart related. Some of us always wished you well especially when you had visits to the hospital. I suppose now you have memory loss too because you readily seem to forget the people who, even if but virtually were there for you (if that accounted for anything much).

You are one of the few original posters who I don't think ever told me his name. Duane and I couldn't get along on WINLAC. We started becoming friends on here. No one has to believe me bub, all they have to do is go back and view the history about the middle of this thread anbd they would see for themselves. I am now understanding that you're not a nice guy. You're selfish and you may also believe you're better than people. don't turn me into a problem. I don't want to be a problem. You hate my message so you try to be a distraction. Never at one point could you give clear answers for what I say scripturally or historically. All you do is criticize. Well I won't allow you to be a distraction. You're just making a lot of noise. Empty barrels tend to do that sort of thing.

I'm sorry, but you needed to hear that.

Thanks for your answer, which I consider to be ridiculous.

Utterly ridiculous.

the world never respect Jesus as a truth teller in his days and they shower him with scorn and contempt, and yet Jesus has been proven right. So what that say about your judgement of character?

<quoted text> Great post CS, Hope you have a Blessed weekend.(C:
Thanks Lawest100. It was going great until my father passed away just after Shabbat 7:30pm EST. He was a nice person and a friend. Very well informed, funny and smart. He impacted out lives positively. It was sad. I came home from worship and everyone was standing in shock on the front porch. I sat in the room with him for about 30 minutes. I didn't touch the body so I don't have to be shorn (shaven) but I am unclean for 7 days so I must take a mikveh. I will miss him, I will miss him a lot. My mom is devastated, they were married 40 years. He was 65, multiple stroke victim. We had someone at mom's home helping to take care of him too.

His countenance changed about 4th Yom (Wednesday) and I knew in my heart he would leave us. I fed him the morning before I went to the Qahal bayit. He could barely swallow his tea, much of it ran out the side of his mouth. He was so tired, so weak. I was hoping to return to my mother's house to see him alive. We had him for a while and then the coroners and the police came for him around 9:20pmEST.

I promised him I wouldn't cry. One tear rolled down my right cheek and that was it. I don't expect to cry over him anymore. He was in so much pain, and we kept him hanging on. He wanted to stay but was more relieved to go I believe, so I can't be sad for him. he was my father and my friend.

Shalom and goodbye WGE. RIP. I love you.

My self-esteem is unrelated to my skepticism.

"Humble"? That's code for "submit," right? As I said before, you're a one note tune.

You just asked me about my skepticism. I don't believe anything more or less than what the evidence suggests to me. What's you evidence for any god? When you provide some, then I will "acknowledge more than just the possibility" of a creator.

Furthermore, what would be your evidence that any god you had evidence for was your god, whatever you call him besides the shar of shars.

Outside of Yahweh, there is nothing but misery and perpetual darkness.
Ask your doctor if Prozac is right for you. You're really quite a downer.

Oh - oh - oh ... was that your god's name, Yahweh or Yahweh Elohim (barack be He)?

I guess that you don't like the name "Jehovah" then. If I recall correctly, you rejected it earlier.

And some of you won't write out the word "God," or use more than a tetragrammaton for Yahweh. And you all seem to think it's important to get it just right or else I-don't-know-what.

Is that "Barack be he" part required, or just an obeisance?
