If you kill someone, he's dead.
He no longer feels anything.
You can no longer punish him. He can't suffer.
I would think you wouldn't like that.
With your attitude, it would seem torture is the answer. Why not go back to the practice of the Middle Ages (by your religion even!!) of using horrible torture devices, make people suffer and then die an agonizing death?
Isn't that the Redneck way?
And you get the added benefit of sadistic enjoyment, the bloodthirst I referred to earlier.
Go god! Go Jesus! Go RiversideRedneck!
I said nothing about torture, Pastor.

Nothing.

That's what you're now bringing to the table.

And you accuse me of it?

O_o

Besides, to a criminal - prison life ain't so bad. That's why they keep committing crimes, they're not afraid of jail.

What kind of punishment is sending someone to a place they kinda enjoy?

I was referring more to the long type conversations RR.
I think it also depends on whether you work at home...if you are single...have kids.
I sometimes but not often have these types long conversations as I might here.
Think about some of the conversations (written) that you have had with some. I know that you post on other threads as well as this one. Add up all the time that you spend writing and reading...
I personally think that we talk (write and read) about a lot of things here in this setting that we might not normally talk about in offline life.
Figure how much time per day that you spend on Topix alone...then compare that to the time that you spend talking to people out in the world...(not family that lives with you)...see how they compare.
Most young people either chat over the internet, text, IM, e-mail...
If you have a job working with the public...calling on customers...maybe it doesn't apply to you. Those are usually short conversations and most often deal with work and not general conversations.
I don't know...this is just what I see.
I understand what you're saying & I don't wholly disagree. I guess what I disagree with is people that do spend more time typing or tapping than they do actually talking with people.

And I know that a lot if kids today communicate "socially" like this. I think that's absurd. I totally disagree with it.

Whatever time it takes to have a conversation online, even a tiny one, takes 100 times longer than actually talking.

I find this sort of communication to be completely anti-social. I have pity for my kid's generation.

That usually short for "social media". Because this billboard is not a [social life]. So it all feed into the pathology to me if someone really think they have a social life because talk to more people here than in they offline life, and discuss issues on the billboard, lol.

I for long time was a believing, practicing Christian, and took Christianity very seriously. I have changed my mind in recent years, based, I guess, on learning more about the origin of religions and Christianity, in particular, and realizing much of what we were taught is known now to be untrue, and none of what we have been taught is proved to be true, though we have not proved the rest false either.
That the Bible is not 100% the inerrant Word of God has been established. That along with no evidence of any God ever having been verified, and various other aspects of how all religions came and went, makes me fairly confident that Christianity, like all its predecessors, is 100% man-made.
There is some good in some of the Christian teachings, but IMO there is no truth in a deity or Jesus being some supernatural being, nor even that Jesus even existed, though I see no reason to not believe that someone must have existed around which the stories where developed, but that person would have been 100% human with no supernatural abilities.
Then you have just acknowledged that you are not really a believer, I can respect the honesty in your post for that even if my personal experience IN God allows me to know much better, there is a lot of truth in what you are saying as far as the religion of christianity in and of itself, but as we tell people there is a VAST difference between "christianity" and a true and real relationship with God through his son Jesus Christ, and given what you have said in your post you apparently have never had the born again experience in Christ Jesus or you would have had an example of his supernatural power on some lever or the other.

The Word ( Bible ) is not just a book of sayings and promises that we believe on without any evidence of it's truth at all, the true believers and born again have experience it's truth as promised IN it's Word's, I have seen seen the terminally ill heal and set to good health, there are those in THE church who can testify to seeing the dead brought back to life ( yes, no fooling ) I personally have been near death's door myself at least once and can testify to being brought back to full health and vigor, he has delivered me from such other pressing situations that I've seen no way out and in such a miraculous manner that it could not have possibly been anything else but the hand of God at work, so as I've said on this thread several times before, faith and the power of prayer does change things for the better.

Peace unto you.

Dude, I'm not "accusing" you of bringing torture to the table.

I'm the one who is bringing torture to the table. But I do it for a very good reason.

The reason I bring torture to the table is to point out that, if you kill people, their punishment is over (unless we get into the lake of fire thing, which we better avoid). You say jail is too cushy--inmates should be denied any comfort and be fed lousy food. Well just killing people, quickly, is not much punishment. Especially for a criminal who made his victims suffer. Don't you think?

And there's another thing. You, Riverside Redneck, get goosebumps at the prospect of killing.(Sure, you deny it, but your emotional fervor betrays you.) I would think torture would really get you off. Torture is the only real punishment: What's more real, more horrific, more physically painful, more of an emotional torment, than torture?

And just think of it. If we do public torture, make it a spectator event, place the criminals in torture machines in the public square, then everybody else will get to see the incredible suffering, the gangrenous limbs, the gruesome ooze, and will hear the ghastly screams and moans. Wow, exposed to this, every person in society will be deterred from committing a crime; we will never see another criminal.

And RR will be very happy. It could even replace your alcohol high!

Yes but it's the absolute punishment.

And it ensures they can never do it again.
You say jail is too cushy--inmates should be denied any comfort and be fed lousy food.
Not cushy for most folks, cushy for the criminal mind, obviously too cushy for those that are repeat offenders.

Inmates should be denied creature comforts such as coffee, cable, internet, porn, drugs, etc. They're in jail to be punished, not for a retreat.
Well just killing people, quickly, is not much punishment. Especially for a criminal who made his victims suffer. Don't you think?
It doesn't matter if the victim suffered or how much they suffered. The criminal deserves the ultimate punishment.

*sigh*

What is it with Topix people and their psychobabble?

I haven't said anything about torture. NOTHING. You brought it up, not me.

For the Catcher record, I am NOT for torture of criminals. Got it?

There you go again, fucker.

All I'm saying is that if heinous crime was met with ultimate punishment, the heinous crime rate would drop.

You know it would.

I call copout.

Capital punishment, standing alone, is not the ultimate punishment.

Death preceded by torture is the ultimate punishment.

All I'm saying is that you should be consistent and adopt torture-plus-eventual-death as your favorite recipe for the worst criminals.

(One last thing: The death penalty is NOT a deterrent to crime. But that's just an aside, I wouldn't want to get in the way of your fun.)

<quoted text>Hello and good early morning ( where you are ) Irrira, still monday here where I am, and it is still cold, doesn't feel like spring at all right now, but no fret as it is still right around the corner.
I do understand everything that you have said, because I live this thing, and again I say as the Bible says and am a witness to this truth..........that the adversary will never completely stop trying to come at us in many different ways, when he fails in one approach then he comes back at us in another, this is not fear to acknowledge that but rather a spiritual reality that I'm sure that every true believer IN Christ can acknowledge and testify to, But God has already handed us the victory over the enemy through his Holy child Jesus Christ, and we must take on Christ upon ourselves to make our calling an election sure, and to be watchful and pray always.
Peace and Blessings to you sister.
It is obvious that you are well versed in the jargon and dogma of Christianity as are many people, who like me, were born and raised in Christianity and followed it most of our lives.

Can you however prove that what you have said is true? No offense intended, but I don't think you can nor can anyone else, because based on what I understand to be the most up to date knowledge about these things, no proof has yet ever been found to prove there is a God nor that the Bible a book of facts.

What has been proved is that some parts of the Bible, which man has accepted as fact for many years, and many still do, has, in fact, been proved to be untrue. Of course, this does not, at all, prove that all of the Bible is untrue, but it does prove untrue that 100% of the Bible is fact, which some will state.

I think you are very correct, Annie, in that we do spend a lot of time conversing with others on the net, and in my case, I think I spend much more time conversing on the net, than I do in the rest of my life. That may have been different though, when I worked in a job that I was available to serve the public during most of my working hours.

I also think we tend to say things online that we often would not say to someone's face, both positive and negative, because we do feel some security in typing on a keyboard rather than looking another person in the eye.
