We have a young man in the neighborhood, who works for a different law enforcement group every month or so. His parents bought him an old scanner/radio, a nice looking badge, a toy night stick, an officer's hat, and a bright orange vest.
Often he would direct traffic in the neighborhood, threaten to write you up for some violation, but always let you off with a bit of a warning. Yeah, he heads back to the HQ every night, too.
I bet, I only worked as a police dispatcher for a short stint.

The job was just a little too crazy for me. One minute your dealing with a car flipped over on a rail road track on fire, people inside and the train coming. The next minute you have two year old asking you how to do CPR on a goldfish.

I have had enough drama in my life. Someone else can do it.

There is nothing dishonest about Pulmonary Resuscitation.
There is no pulmonary resuscitation in Genesis. The passage does not resemble CPR. YOU are being dishonest.

You call mouth to nose resuscitation magic?
There is no mouth-to-nose resuscitation. There is no mouth mentioned at all and no resuscitation is occurring. The passage involves God turning a non-living formation of dirt into a living being (MAGIC), not reviving a living person by giving them air artificially. And certainly nothing about starting the heart.
Eagle12 wrote:
CPR is a three step process known as the ABC. Airway, Breathing and then Circulation. Always in that order. If Pulmonary Resuscitation is all that is needed then circulation has already been established.
You tried to claim that Genesis mentioned "starting the heart" and "starting...blood flow". You know there is nothing like that in there. You're dishonest.

There is no CPR in the Bible.

How many times has some kid died because parent refused medical help, instead they tried to pray the sickness away?
I'll stick with science, it has gotten us to the edge of our solar system. Religion has taken us to believers flying planes into building, blowing each other up and murdering doctors they don't like.
It would be interesting if we took a vacuum gauge and screwed it into one of your ears. What would be the vacuum reading?

Aside from all the negative advertising you are doing here for religion. Donít forget that a large part of the hospital system here in the US and abroad is religious based. The Catholics and Methodist have some of the most advanced hospitals in the world. Saving thousands of lives every years.

Not to mentioned most of the religious hospitals are also research and teaching facilities. I donít know the exact number of religious hospitals versus secular but I bet itís over 50%.

I can see where a certain growth got short circuited in your mental development.
What is a copper wire? A bunch of dead molecules, right?
Touch one laying on the table. Deader than a door nail. Stick one in the hot side of an outlet and touch it. Still deader than a door nail, right? Touch it and wet your finger and touch the screw in the middle of that outlet.
Not so dead after all, is it?
You might try connecting that wire to both ears before touching the screw. It might kickstart some dead molecules into action.

High frequency EM.

BTW, the E and the M exist together. Can't really get one without the other.

You didn't leave your head in there long enough.

Since your "knowledge" is based upon what you read, whether you understand it or not.

Yes, magnetic fields affect chemical actions.

Nice to see you back, hot air blower.

I will guarantee you if the electricity in your body was drained off, or switched off, your horn blowing days would be over. Oh, an overload or wrong frequency would also do that.

It is hard for a hot air blowing entity to understand the intricacies of the EM force.



If you can not feel any stirring within from that, then you missed the day your body deserted you.

Oh, one more thing. Why he is a musical genius and you aren't.

As a hot air horn blower, you are a part of the vibratory experience. You are in the loop making your noise. The air being recycled goes through you. Breath, lips flapping, and valve pushing that you can feel. So, of course, it will sound great to you. Self expression. Others, maybe not so. Your reach is limited to those of the same basic resonance.

That electric guitar is something different. The control of it is totally different. He isn't in the middle of the process, he is creating it. His feedback is from his ears more than feeling. His genius is from reaching out to something more than just vibrating. He incorporates a lot of different sounds and speeds, and melds them together into one song. Why it has more universal appeal. His is the type you play over and over.

Like I said, you ain't got no poetry in you. Just blowing your horn a way that makes you feel good.

Not a whole lot there to misinterpret or twist and turn. You know from your experience to bring someone back to life itís ABC. Airway, Breathing and then circulation. Here we have the very first example of air being forced into a human body resulting in life starting.
Remember this whole conversation was over the accusation that the Bible is all myth. Well itís not and I have given an example where Pulmonary Resuscitation was used to kick start a life. Thousands of years before the practice of CPR was accepted by the medical community.

It's actually mouth to nose and mouth on infants, but the mouth is generally best because you are exhaling only a small amount of oxygen with your breath, so you have to get as much as you can into their lungs so they don't suffocate, otherwise if you cannot get enough into their lungs it is all for naught.

You have a great deal of trouble wit both definitions, MUSICAL-------something you know absolutely nothing about, and GENIUS..........when related to music is meaningless since music is a foreign realm for you. Until you understand music on any level designating anyone a GENIUS is pointless.

I vibrate an air column the guitar vibrates a string. One is pure mechanical, no wonder you like it. The other is a HUMAN experience. Flesh against steel, breathing life into the music, feeling the vibrations inside of you, controlling the flow of air, a mush more personal experience that simply plucking a string and then relying on a non-human medium, electricity, to produce the music. Put pukebucket and myself in a room, WITHOUT power, no electricity, see who can make music. No electricity of pukebucket means NO special effects, no reverb, no gimmicks and no music.

Yes I'm sure you could listen to pukeman over and over again. Further proof that the infantile mind is easily occupied.

You have no idea what and how poetry is incorporated in to music, so stop embarrassing yourself.

Stick to your magnets and string, the more you attempt to shops how much you now about music, the more stupid you sound. Once again, your WAY out of your league here. I've forgotten more about music than you in a lifetime will ever know.

Smart enough to know good music.

You don't understand DNA and the EM part. It is a filter or transducer for that energy. Much like the processor in your computer. Does the routing and determines the connections. Pretty complicated little processor, but it isn't a central one. Lots and lots of them working in parallel, like in each cell.

In that sense, DNA is alive. If it wasn't, you wouldn't be either.
