<quoted text>Greetings, salutations, and shalowm, Senecus.
So you understand, the misunderstanding was on Hidingfromyou's part and not mine. I never said I believed that the ancient records mentioned any nuclear weapons, or a nuclear holocaust. I was only sharing how that the theorists that propose the possibilities make good arguments that I believe are worthy of consideration. They only propose that its possible and that if it were true, there'd be no evidence of it today, 10,000 later.
Ok, first, I thought I was dealing with Black Thunder.

Second, no, the people who present their ideas about the past are not presenting theories. They're not even presenting hypotheses. I believe I already explained what would be necessary for that.

Third, why would anyone take an uninformed contemporary idea about the past and compare it to real archaeology? That demonstrates an absolute lack of understanding about scientific standards. The people who claim "look at this writing that has been translated into modern English, doesn't it just sound like a nuclear war? Let's ignore all the other stuff in it and just concentrate on the imagery we want to be there" is not remotely comparable to the scientific rigor that goes into dig sites.

Archaeologists carefully map out their digs - in 3D. They map out depth, longitude and latitude. They take measurements of the soil as they go and carefully preserve artifacts from contemporary contamination. Every last detail is planned, prepared. That's nothing at all like the rubbish presented to me in this thread.

It's like you're claiming "I believe the universe was created by a unicorn because that's how I interpret this ancient writing" is comparable to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity.

Sorry. Not even close. There's a reason people like Black Thunder are ignored by anthropology departments - they have no meaningful claims or knowledge to add.

<quoted text>Thinking about that scripture, why do you think it was written "Thou shalt not suffer?" Indeed, we can turn to our Bible for guidance, I do it all the time; but I have never had the urge to run off, find a witch and burn them to the stake.
In fact, perhaps, I have been called a witch and others may want to burn me. Cheers, for the advice, but nonetheless, you didn't teach me anything. Not surprising, really :)
You might want to if you saw a witch cut up a child and pull out the innards in order to put a curse on the mother, or for releasing demons upon people who are not liked by someone, for money and/or goods.

If you were a Roman or insane that is.

Even though I'm a Humanist just like Teddy now, cause she has inspired me, in my experience and studies, true followers of Jesus would not harm anyone, ones that do are pretending.

The war with you was motivated by hate of slander. But you're not accountable for anything, are you? You had no part in that. You were just keeping it real.

And there's no reason to trouble your tiny head over it. You're not perfect, just (self-)forgiven.

Do you want Christians nowhere near you talking about their faith or do you want to seek out Christians online and argue with them? It seems like you think tights apply only to you huh?
Neither. False dichotomy.

You still have no idea what we want. And you clearly never will. It isn't necessary that you do.

Well you know I don't agree with God not being necessary but by in large I agree with most of what you said. I also put a lot more stock in real life interaction and the ability to shake a man's hand and size him up. People like to pretend on the Internet quite a bit. And obviously anybody can claim anything they want. There are some people I do trust. Epi is one of them. But for the most part I think it can be rather foolish and naive not to be at least somewhat realistic of the potential problems that can come from trying to make too much out of anonymous interaction
Have a good one mike
Thanks

because
he (always) paraphrases the post, and his reading comprehension is so shitty, that he never gets the gist correct. He then proceeds to dissemble his straw-man, this is a very effective distraction, Skum's contentions never get to see the light of day, because all time is take up with his lies about his opponents post.
he types fast, and lies faster
That accurately sums up the boring exchanges I've had with Skom.

Think about this.
Okay now, careful.
This may blow your mind in its simplicity and effectiveness.
It wouldn't require you to paraphrase, rely on memory or your unsupported assertions, and I couldn't say a thing in response, because it would be so obvious that I did, in deed and in fact, lie.
Here it is.
Just imagine how obvious the lies that you allude to or imply I have told would be if you actually link to any lie I have told while posting here, or any other thread.
That'd show me, wouldn't it?
Yet.
You don't.
When Skom accuses people of lying, he's saying "you are so much better than me, it hurts! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Moooommiiiieeeeee!"

With slightly less "mommie" and more "wah."

He might have had he fingers crossed.
Dim thinks that the word of a man is an actual word that has to be stated explicitly. He didn't give you his word. He just said that he'd do something. You had no right to assume that he meant it without his word.
He learned his values in church. What do you think?
I think Skom is a dishonest, insecure and immature man. He's incapable of admitting error - and that bespeaks all kinds of problems - and instead goes on the attack. Not someone I'd want to play billiards with.

how that working out for you so far? you here everyday writing fervently to prove your point not getting nowhere, so obviously that mindset not working out for you so well.
I understand people from other religion have spiritual experiences, those experiences just not in they best interest. the only spiritual experience in they best interest, is the spirit of YHWH God through Jesus Christ. Take off the blinders of secular humanism, and maybe you will understand that.
You're so scared that Vishnu is real. And you know that you're in trouble because Vishnu might be real. So you're here every day trying to pledge your support for Yahweh, get him to fight on your side.

But you already know that Yahweh is just one of Vishnu's messengers and you're in deep, deep trouble.

So I just come here to watch you squirm.

I disagree with your last statement...I don't believe they are pretending.

What I do think is that are acting upon their faith based on their interpretation of what the Bible says. Are they right about that interpretation...not in my opinion.

Take this thread for example...

It has just come off a a bitter battle concerning OSAS. Someone has to be right...someone has to be wrong...possibly.

Was one side pretending...or were they just acting upon their interpretation?

Some feel as if they must speak up against homosexuality and use some rather unkind words while do so...others might consider it sin...yet feel no need to vilify...then there are those that fight for the rights of gays.

Are any of them pretending...not in my opinion...they are acting according to their interpretation of scripture.

Each person can find scripture to back up their interpretation...look how much was posted for the OSAS debate...each person felt as if their interpretation was the correct one. I don't think that any of them were pretending.
