Why Americans are starting to really hate mexicans

Thanks! Don't know how long I'll last - it gets depressing.  (Wednesday | post #1713)

Recently published research in the field of molecular genetics—the study of DNA sequences—indicate s that Jewish populations of the various Diaspora communities have retained their genetic identity throughout the exile. Despite large geographic distances between the communities and the passage of thousands of years, far removed Jewish communities share a similar genetic profile. This research confirms the common ancestry and common geographical origin of world Jewry. Jewish men from communities which developed in the Near East—Iran, Iraq, Kurdistan, Yemen—and European Jews have very similar, almost identical genetic profiles. “Despite their long-term residence in different countries and isolation from one another, most Jewish populations were not significantly different from one another at the genetic level. The results support the hypothesis that the paternal gene pools of Jewish communities from Europe, North Africa and the Middle East descended from a common Middle Eastern ancestral population, and suggest that most Jewish communities have remained relatively isolated from neighboring non-Jewish communities during and after the Diaspora.” (M.F. Hammer, Proc. Nat’l Academy of Science, May 9, 2000) http://www.simplet oremember.com/arti cles/a/jewish-gene tics/  (Wednesday | post #289340)

Bones don't usually turn to dust in a few years, actually. It takes far longer than that. Decay much depends on the composition of the soil in which bodies are buried. Actual ancient humanoid bones are most often found in sheltered, waterless caves and are much younger than dinosaur fossils by many millions of years. Early humans also lived at a time when predators and scavengers were much smaller than dinosaurs. Humanoids were of a size that made it easy for such animals to consume their bones nearly completely and scatter the remaining pieces, and thus, remains are harder to find. Most very ancient humanoid 'bones' found are acutally fossils, not bones. Dinosaur fossils found the world over are a very small fraction of the dinosaur population that once inhabited our earth. Those fossils are composed of minerals which replaced the bone over time and retained the shape of those bones. The age of these fossils is found by radiometric dating of the material that replaced the bone. Radiometric dating does not put an exact year when something orginated. For example, "the uranium-lead radiometric dating scheme has been refined to the point that the error margin in dates of rocks can be as low as less than two million years in two-and-a-half billion years.[13][18] An error margin of 2–5% has been achieved on younger Mesozoic rocks.[19] (Wiki - please see the sources listed for authenticity). Dating recent remains is sometimes difficult because of the many variables in soil and environment in which the remains were buried, but modern forensic technology makes it far more accurate than you believe. IMO, there really isn't a contradiction in what science can prove and what the bible says. Science deals in cold hard facts while the bible deals in a range of fact, parable, allegory, faith, belief, and societal laws for various benefit. While neither is necessarily wrong or bad, neither can tell the entire history of humanity or the world. Also, IMO, the bible's 6,000 year age of the earth refers to a new age of consciousness of mankind, perhaps representing an era when organized religions began holding control over vast populations. People concerned with religion would find this era more vitally significant. Not to mention that the bible was written at a time when science of any kind didn't reach common people. If anyone during that time had conceived of the earth being billions of years old (and revolving around the sun), it's doubtful that common people would understand or be concerned with numbers representing billions of years. Not important - they were concered with their own lives and survival. Egypt's predynastic period is considered to have started around 5000 B.C. Perhaps that is what the bible refers to. The bible was written in a region where Egyptian history would be known, at least orally, and could be seen in stone, tombs, and hieroglyphs - tradition and visual, tangible proof. Certainly, the Egyptian people existed long prior to the predynastic period in order to develop a unified society and culture. A mere 2000 years added to the 5000 would put the bible in error if it really meant the earth had existed for only 6000 years. IMO, it's more likely that the writer of that particular part of the bible wanted the common focus on what he/she considered to be the only relevant part of human existence.  (Wednesday | post #289336)

All masks, smoke and mirrors for the sheeple's puppet show. No matter who is elected - republican or democrat - they will take orders from the unelected fascists who run the federal government and both political parties. If you haven't seen the pattern and come to that conclusion, then you are not a critical thinker. Probably you will never be one.  (Tuesday Jul 29 | post #288979)

Fascists will use anything to further their agenda, including feeding liberals everything they want and putting the government deeply in debt. Fascism will wear any mask it chooses, as long as its ultimate goal of absolute control is met. Don't be foolish enough to believe propaganda - there is no Utopia and never will be. Neither religion nor national sovereignty are bad, nor are all government programs to help the poor. But they can be warped to be made tools of people who have an agenda that puts the American people LAST on its list of important things to consider.  (Tuesday Jul 29 | post #288978)

China might fall to the globalists, if they aren't smart. The first visible westerners in china were our politicians who made trade agreements and placed some of our industrialists there. Then, as the Chinese people gained money, the credit card companies, CFR owned, entered the scene. If ever China permits their ownership of its people steeped in credit debt, the end will be near for their form of government. The globalists want an Asian Union.  (Sunday Jul 27 | post #288292)

I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire, ... The man that controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire. And I control the money supply." Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild Quote Who controls the money supply in the USA? The Federal Reserve, an unelected cabal of bankers.  (Sunday Jul 27 | post #288291)

Islam is a form of government that incorporates a religion. It's all about control, and the religion is supposed to justify the control.  (Sunday Jul 27 | post #288285)

That's all very fine if your enemies believe as you do. Otherwise, they will just take all you have, shoot you, and laugh at how easy you were to steal from and murder. Have you ever considered that people might be tools of god's punishment? God helps those who help themselves, eh? And, as ye sow, so shall ye reap. Live by the sword, die by the sword. SOMEONE has to be holding the opposing sword. It goes on and on. There is NO Utopia, and there was never meant to be Utopia on earth. Obviously. Not to mention that these words were written for a very small, persecuted group of people who were killed if they got cheeky with authorities. Even banded together, they could not have won over the people who were oppressing them. In order to stay alive, they HAD to believe in vengeance from god because they were helpless to exact it themselves. But Jesus ran with Zealots, himself, so violence wasn't unknown to them. Protection wasn't unknown to them. Thanks, but if scum come at me and my family with intent to do us any harm at all, I'll shoot the bastards. When the call comes, I will actively fight for my country and my Constitution - against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I won't feed and water my enemies - I will provide aid to my allies. God might well judge our enemies after they're dead. I'll just help get them there for sentencing so they can find out, and sooner than later.  (Sunday Jul 27 | post #288211)

Bush was referring to David Rockefeller, of Standard Oil, Chase Manhattan and the Council on Foreign Relations - CFR members apparently think he really is god. Rockefeller certainly thinks he is.  (Saturday Jul 26 | post #288137)

On the contrary, Rico. I certainly don't approve of you or what you and your ilk believe in, for example. No more complete lines of bullshit can be found anywhere. Why don't you try logic? It might straighten up your thought processes just a tad. So, I've recognized your existence, which should please you. That's all you're gonna get. Now, FO.  (Saturday Jul 26 | post #288044)
