For starters and according to scriptures, Joseph and Mary weren't rich. Whether or not we can even consider them "middle-class" is questionable.

Secondly, I wondered why, after all the work put into the carvings on the tomb, that the names looked like the wily works of a graffiti "artist."?...the ancient Hebrew alphabet, if memory serves me correctly, was no longer in use.
1. According to Scripture Joseph was a tradesman which would have put him well into "middle-class" in 1st. Cent. and tombs were family owned not individual's.

2. The 'scratching of the name' is common on all ossuaries of the period even expensive one's like Caiphus'(yes we have it as well and it is undisputed)the ossuaries in the Talpiot Tomb were fairly plain (not a rich families).

I have no belief in a "Spiritual world," whatever that may mean.
My spiritual feelings all arise from my personal experience in this natural world of ours.
I do not believe in the supernatural.
Oh; that makes no sense to me at all, but thanks for filling me in. I thought that you didn't believe in the Spiritual world, but have no idea of what could be spiritual without being in the Spiritual world :)

Like I said, this is hilarious. Aren't you enjoying your time spent here?
We find it hilarious too ~ thanks for sharing your time with us :) Obviously there are some with problems, but we don't laugh at them, and most times try to respond to those postings which are positive, when they are posted, than those that are bombastic and weird. There maybe people posting on here with all sorts of issues going on in their lives around them, and we are here trying to help those that are seeking our help.

You won't find sharing Scriptures and Prayers helpful in your life until you need them and use them..... but at least you are keeping those amused that like some feed back, it saves us from feeling guilty for not replying, and gives us the opportunity to get to know you all :)

Say it ain't so ...
One day shrink told us that he has keys to the White House ...you know, the one in the 51st State of the District of Columbia.
Bet ya didn't know the DOC was the 51st State did ya?
He also has keys to the NASA facility at Cape Huston, Fla. What he meant was Cape Houston, Fla ...no biggie, we all understand he comes up a little short in spelling ...not to mention geography.
This is why you'll sometimes see me refer to him as 007.
Shrink claims to be a German national. To my knowledge he has never let on which side of the wall he hailed from in his native Germany, or how long ago it was that he migrated to the USA.
Regardless, Shrink is a world renowned jet-setter and all around important person ...and should be treated as such.
Jus sayin ...

And lastly, based on the date given as to when this tomb was constructed, the ancient Hebrew alphabet, if memory serves me correctly, was no longer in use.
The Hebrew 'Alphabet' and language was used even long after the 70AD diaspora. Also note that the Hebrew Alphabet was used for Aramaic (a "street dialect" of Hebrew)

Is that so?
Actually, Derp, Christianity is only prospering where it is largely unknown and where education is scarce. The parts of the world that know Christianity best and which whose people are best educated - the West - are rejecting it at a very rapid rate.
Also note that in Western Civilization, most Christians are Chrisitans on paper only.

<quoted text>GOD is an ENERGY that humans cannot comprehend... in my opinion, of course :) Same as ANGELS are an ENERGY that there are different levels of comprehension for, again, in my opinion. For those that can see Auras, I believe, they have been really Blessed, for they can see the energy that we produce, and some can see the energy that ANGELS produce, and GOD has an energy above and beyond recognition, unless one recognises HIM from within.
My comparison to these different levels of energy and who has the 'sense' to see them to that of who ever it was who created the silent dog whistle. I can't hear it whistle, but in saying that, have no doubts that the whistle works...... for there are more than just the creator of the silent whistle that can hear it, and I believe it has proven that dogs react to it.
I have seen dogs put their heads up in the air and howl like a wolf when an ambulance or vehicle as such with sirens is somewhere nearby, although not necessarily in the immediate vicinity, and have never seen them howl apart from those times.
And yet other dogs ignore them! We need to see that there is more to more than meets the eye, and work with the more we know less of :)
Hey Sister Friend!
I will stand by you on this one... even tho' for some things we might use different terms, in a way, not always easy to explain facts of disbelief.

I can testify to the Energy, but not write another book here.

Auras to me are the Light of Life.

Some would argue that there is no Life in a rock - yet all minerals, all elements, have their own light and color - and this is where the Light of Life exists regardless of seen or unseen.

All things are energized to their own frequency, and there can be no frequency without vibration, nor any vibration without movement, and thus the term living matter is applicable to Light.

It is the same with Sound. Vibration creates sound, which in turn when collected, creates Light.

It can be seen even as we write where the photons of energy gather in the Light waves in which we write, vibrating phonetics in script to read, without us hearing a sound at all!

God is Love... the greatest Energy no-one else can duplicate nor deny.

And the Light of Life exists... seen or unseen by the human eye... or any yet made technology.

God Bless, and trust you are feeling better with that head-ache.

Time we were in bed! xx

Not sure what you mean..... belief is believe to a degree, so if you were inferring you believe in the spiritual world, that would be your belief.

Dear God, There are people in this world that I can learn so much from; people who have gone through hard things that have strengthened their faith, people who have been Christians for years and are so much more spiritually mature than I am. On the other hand, there are people in this world who can learn from me. Please show me if there is someone you would have me be a mentor to or someone who should be my mentor. And please, keep working on me so that I might be the witness in the world that you want me to be. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Neither of us expressed any "belief" in a "spiritual world."

You are stuck in your construct of different worlds.

There is only one world.

In that natural world, we can experience happiness, sadness, love, spirituality, relief, joy, many feelings.

I have a feeling you aren't going to get it.

You seem to have a very limited understanding of questioning another person. It isn't always to learn to believe what they believe.

BLL seems to think it is black or white as to the reasons that one might ask questions. IMO he is not seeing the 1000s of shades of grey in between.

Goes back to the thinking of "you are either for or against us".

Some don't seem to realize that it is not always the case...there are those of us that is somewhere in the middle...just trying to figure out why neither side resonates...kind of like "stuck in the middle".

I have decided that I am okay being in that mud puddle...letting the mud squish between my toes. I will continue to stick a toe out on either side...as if to remind myself why I prefer the mud puddle.

Strange...I am okay with that.

Well...there is more but once again I find myself letting my mind ramble to other thoughts...to other places...best maybe to not make any mud pies today!

Okay...a little rambling...

Found this...

As the mask of deception falls off the face of humanity
Unveiling the grim reality of duality
In which everyone is a casualty, no one will be exempt
Truth has many shades
It's not a matter of black and white, but gray
Although many, we are one, so in the final analysis
Could it be that we are fighting a war that can't be won?

What I was looking for was one Christian to tell Dim that he was out of line for repeatedly calling his errors in comprehension my lies, and for refusing to even try to show one of those lies. I was hoping one of you would ask him to show you such a lie, and then chastise him when he failed. That never happened.
Illuminatrix wrote:
The reason that didn't happen could be because we all read the conversation.
You're saying that the reason neither Dim, you, nor any other Christian was able to post and link to two quotations of mine that contradicted one another and could reasonably be called a lie, which is what Dim accused me of - is because you "all read the conversation"?

I say it's because you can't find anything worthy of being called a lie, and you don't care if Dim is accurate or not. You don't need or expect him to provide evidence to justify his calumny, and you don't need it yourself to pile on.

That implies that you have the same standards as Dim. You don't need evidence, you don't need to be right, and you don't need to be honest. You just need to despise whatever you despise and that is all the justification you need, even now.

Incidentally, "could be" are weasel words. I suspect that you added them so that you could distance yourself from your answer if necessary.

CONT.
