Bible Quote for August 23

Become a Eunuch for God

For there are eunuchs, that were so born from their mother's womb: and there are eunuchs, that were made eunuchs by men: and there are eunuchs, that made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.(Matthew 19:12 ASV)

Yes. there should be evidence of origin. There is some in all mammals, but not satisfactorily explained in the"chain" of human evolution as defined by scientific discovery and archaeology.
Is it "alien"...everything arriving from a source that is not local IS "alien". Much (if not all) of the water on this planet is derived from alien sources...as is ALL the gold found here(on this planet).
We do have "alien" artifacts that are being analysed for genomes as we speak. So they are proven (genuine)articles. I would be interested to see if the FP 2 sequence is there and in the proper sequence in the chromosome.
Nothing "comes out of nowhere". So the question is to discover where it is derived from and how...then possibly when.
The problem with this video, is that it sparks the "conspiracy theorist" judgement in all to many people, and the evidence and discussion devolves from that point on. There is real research ongoing that this nonsense taints, and the truth and actuality becomes mired and buried in controversy. That is contrary to scientific experiment and discovery.
I believe the chain of evolution as presented is incorrect, and extremely lacking in substantiated proof.
Would you expect someone to believe you if you told them they are the descendants of a people who settled this planet over a million years ago? They would probably not believe you if you had the records of it right in your hands...yet they believe that a 2000 year old deity that never has been seen controls their lives and the whole universe.
.. the FOX P-2 gene is interesting. Thanks to you & HFY, I now understand the complexity of the amino acid makeup ..

.. upsetting people is not my intent; I'm just doing a 'what if' scenerio, writing three scripts in my mind:

1. Humans are the result of evolution.

2. Another species manipulated our genetic makeup.

3. God sits at the DNA controls.

.. it's surprising that no Christian has joined this exchange since the bible contains interesting fragments of information:

1. Why was Lilith edited out of the bible? Was she a DNA failure?

2. Was mankind destroyed in a worldwide flood leaving only 'pure' humans (Noah & his family)?

3. Numbers 13:33 KJV: "And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, who come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight." What ??..

Hugs and kisses to you too.

Took the first pill an hour ago, nurse will be here in an hour for the first injection.

I'll check out her boobs so the needle won't hurt.

FLORIDA CONSIDERS ELIMINATING LAWS ALTOGETHER

TALLAHASSEE (The Borowitz Report)—Arguing that its current system of laws is out of step with life in today’s Florida, a growing chorus of lawmakers in the state are arguing for a measure that would eliminate laws altogether.

“Florida is rife with laws that say ‘Do this, don’t do that,’” said Gov. Rick Scott, a supporter of the measure.“Speaking as a Floridian, I have found it exhausting pretending to obey them.”

There is broad support in the state for abolishing laws, according to a poll commissioned by the political action committee Citizens For a Lawless Florida.

According to that poll, a majority of Floridians favor ridding the state of laws, while a sizable number did not know that the state had any.

“We’ve been trying to remove laws piecemeal for the past few decades, but this measure seems like the most efficient way to take care of the whole problem,” Gov. Scott said.

For those who fear that eradicating Florida’s laws would wreak havoc on life in the state, Gov. Scott offered this reassurance:“Honestly, I don’t think you’ll notice a difference.”

Actually there are serious scientific investigations into that. There is every possibility they will eventually succeed.

States would make their lives a lot easier if they just selectively chose which Federal Laws they want to enforce.

It seems Skomboli Disease is contagious.
Yes, RiversideHick is learning bad habits from Skombolis. These are the ones I've noticed lately in my interactions with them:

• Dismiss any statistical inference you don't like by pointing out that it was only a sample of Christians that were studied.
• Call those who do this bigots for doing it.
• Continually misrepresent the meaning of "the church."
• Quibble over semantics, try to control meaning or definitions.
• Mangle. Transform meanings between reading and repeating them.
• Cafeteria Christianity - selective emphasis of some scriptures and invalidation of others to validate personal preferences.

These are two different and distinct personas. You could identify each of them just from a paragraph of their writing. Yet they are nearly identical in the areas that support their religion, the obvious implication being that they have been indoctrinated - Hiding says enculturated, and I believe it was Rosa that used the word "introjection" - from a common source.

Whatever we ultimately decide is the origin of that training, that is what I call the church. It's the same thing we are trying to protect the state and citizens from with the separation clause.

Is that a bunch of buildings that fill up on Sundays that Skombolis and RH attend or attended, and repeatedly refer to? No.

Is it each Christian individually? No.

Here's a good time to reexamine that usage - "the church".

The church is neither people nor buildings, although it resides in them.

It is an abstraction, one with persistence in time that transcends material objects like people and buildings. It's a history, a culture, and a tradition.

It's vector is people - clergy, congregants, and other believers. But these people are not the church. The people come and go over the centuries, but the church survives them all, evolving over time like a language breaking into dialects.

It's a source of teaching, and it is not limited to pulpits and pews. It includes the source of the intelligent design movement, which is private money, a mission statement, think tanks, and information disseminating media from books to talk shows to websites.

It is also the source of the money exerting political pressure - lobbying and propagandizing positions on abortion, morning after pills, gay marriage and more.

It's televangelists, Sean Hannity, and God Bless America bumper stickers.

It's Rick Santorum, George Bush, and people like them.

It's Tim Tebow, Pat Boone and people like them.

All of this carries the Christian message, and imprints its principle memes on millions of individuals, and in so doing, modifies the nation's collective psyche.

And too often, when that fingerprint is identified, there is a stain with it. Are those qualities described above desirable? Do we benefit from coexisting with an institution that does that?

This abstraction - this megameme, passing through generations like a virus - is also the source of Western atheophobia and homophobia. It doesn't manifest in every believer to the same extent or in the same way, and some avoid these Christian ethical pitfalls altogether by simply refusing to accept such bad ideas.

That's the church.

It's a source of confusion, obstruction, and disinformation in society at large. To it immediate victims, the believers, it also is a source of guilt, fear and shame, and it inhibits personal development (a la Maslow, for those familiar or interested).

Now, with all of that in mind, consider Teedledee and Tweedldum's most frequent response when I refer to the church and its pernicious message:'They didn't teach that in my church, you Christian hating bigot.'

Incidentally, your posting seems to have jumped a notch. You seem to be spending less time trying to teach Christians and more time trying understand, describe and explain them, which brings us full circle back to the church.

Are you looking for sympathy from unbelievers?
Yes Ians I would think unbeliever or not most people would care. However it does not surprise me at all that you don’t care. That says more about you than you know.

And no I was not looking for sympathy. Some of you seem to think that Christians are responsible for all the evils of the world. That is just hogwash.
