I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, "Stop! don't do it!"

"Why shouldn't I?" he said.

I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"

He said, "Like what?"

I said, "Well...are you religious or atheist?"

He said, "Religious."

I said, "Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?"

He said, "Christian."

I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?"

He said, "Protestant."

I said, "Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"

He said, "Baptist!"

I said, "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

He said, "Baptist church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you reformed Baptist Church of God?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist church of God!"

I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?"

He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!"

I said, "Die, heretic scum", and pushed him off.

Know what else I love? I love it when I say to Prince Pugstar, want to go in the car, and he runs out and tries to grab his little harness - getting himself ready. Love that communication with animals, pure energy of love really, IMHO.

Tonight I mentioned that when I came home, he must have heard the car, as he usually stays sitting on the lounge until he has worked out well and truly who it is.

This has worried me with him because Queen Puggy used to know the sound of the car, let alone the roller door going up, and was always leaping and bounding waiting for her cuddles, hugs and treats.

So, what does the little fella do? Goes trotting off towards the car getting ready for an outing without any real definition of being in the car, it was him just listening in to the conversation.

GOD I love that :)

Thanks. And as I promised, I won't blame aliens for that.

And to show my gratitude, let me offer something of equal or greater value in return. Please tell me what you think of this:

"Wherein they will hear no unsuitable speech. Within it is a flowing spring. Within it are couches raised high." - Qu'ran Al-Ghashiyah 88:11-13

Now that is some wisdom there. Imagine: Couches will be raised high!

Yea, verily, davenports will be hoisted, settees will ascend, and divans and chesterfields will arise as well. I'm not as sure about ottomans, but I'm pretty certain that love seats will be elevated, futons will levitate, and chaises will also be raised. So sayeth the Flying Settee Monster. O holy! O so very holy!

<quoted text>No, just in reply to whoever it was about not being Jewish and not caring.
No, you didn't comprehend what I was saying.

It had nothing to do with being Jewish and not caring.

The comment was to the point in that I had given accurate Judaic/Hebrew translation of the words within the biblical verses and what that meant in exegesis of the literal words used, not the words substituted in the inferior translation, the one he preferred.

The accurate Jewish translation did not support, match or align with a different, and what is often referred to as a "Christianized" translation.

It was about preferring the less accurate translation, since the less accurate translation and the words substituted added ambiguity and that in effect supported his view.

The accurate translation did not support the view he had at all. It negated the other translation.

So.

He said he didn't care what the (accurate)Jewish translation said:

"I'm not Jewish"

That is commonly known as confirmation bias.

That is something many Christians utilize.

Nice implication.

I'm looking for the post right now. Please understand, I've debated this particular subject on many occasions with many different posters, and that is often the response, or something to that effect.

The first search I've ran resulted in 843 posts.

I'm not known for making this stuff up.

I don't need to. Many Christians supply it for me.

And there's the snow globe universe again. Clearly the bible was written by a god. Only a god could have known all of that cosmology way back then.

And not just cosmology. The bible is also godlike in its prescience regarding medicine. Have you seen the regimen for leprosy in Leviticus 14:49-53? It was way ahead of its time:

"And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water: And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times. And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet. But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields, and make an atonement for the house and it shall be clean."

How would it be possible to know that without the help of an omniscient god? RiversideRedneck was being modest when he said that his bible wasn't an encyclopedia.

Who's up for a little biblical geometry? The circle of the earth has four corners, and pi equals three.

Here's another you'll like, you may have seen it.

Genesis 30:37) Jacob, however, took fresh-cut branches from poplar, almond and plane trees and made white stripes on them by peeling the bark and exposing the white inner wood of the branches.

38) Then he placed the peeled branches in all the watering troughs, so that they would be directly in front of the flocks when they came to drink. When the flocks were in heat and came to drink,

39) they mated in front of the branches. And they bore young that were streaked or speckled or spotted.

There you have it.

Animal breeders of the world take note.

According to the bible, genetic expressions can be altered and are influenced by whittled tree branches in the water trough.

I am not here for that nor do I worry about such things.
Obviously all the gods were formed by folk over millennia, where-as the periodic table of the elements over 2-300 years as more elements have been added.

As for the the joke you posted, it would be a standard one I guess. The same has already been done to me - for not following any of these - and speaking against the grain of such organised, power hungry dogma.

I began calling Dim "Dim" in response to his slandering. You seem to have forgotten that. I don't like name calling, and you might have noticed that I haven't treated any other poster that way. I get no pleasure in it. But Dim will remain Dim for as long as he continues to call posters "liar" without producing their alleged lies.

Thanks. I don't expect people like Serah or Juicy to hold Dim accountable, just me. To them, my objection was to being characterized that way was reprehensible, which epitomizes the Christians response to skepticism in general. We're militant bigots to them for objecting to their hate speech and wanting to be free of its influence.
