  1. Past hour
  2. A slave bible

    I might. Washington is about 800 km away.,I don't have a visit on the calendar just now; but we'll see. I'd like to. As to the evil side of all this, apparently, the motives of the missionary society were "mixed." On the one hand, the leadership was abolitionist, Bishop Beilby Porteous for example, but also skeptical that slaves could be freed practically and humanely without advance preparation and education (and baptism, of course). Plus, in the meantime, the missionaries needed the owners' cooperation to get access to the slaves, so the pro-slavery slant of the teaching materials was probably as much to placate the slave owners as manipulate the slaves. The Haitian revolution was right around 1800, which scared the British Caribbean slave holders.That must have been a factor in the missionary plan, too, to sell their mission to the owners as a pacification measure. Which, whatever the missionaries were telling themselves about preparing the slaves for eventual abolition, it was also pacification. What a mess.

  4. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    Sorry. Was editing when you quoted me. My post is blank now because I didn't want to change it. Just add on. The worse thing about this is that our leaders, present and past, are doing this also. I wish people would just say what's going on. lol
  5. Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    I think old EMM is in a world of his own making and far beyond any reasonable conversation. The toll lives in Scotland andhasn't a clue about how America works and all his news is obviously from virulently leftist sources so the poor man is living in a fictional world. Sad.
  6. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    People need to be smarter than believing in everything social media propaganda throws at you, from all sides of the spectrum.
  7. Some of my "ghost" stories

    Thanks for sharing. That makes the list of allegedly real ghost stories up to 10,001 and 10,002 that I have heard in my decades. I think the odds favor the existence of genuine paranormal phenomena in the human experience as opposed to all of them having a normal explanation.
  8. US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape

    That's funny as heck the UN passing a resolution against rape. lol So what are they going to do ban the peace keepers from entering a country. https://www.*** blocked ***/news/world/920390/Sexual-abuse-UN-peacekeeper-accused-612-cases
  9. Doing God's will.

    Thats facile xeno. Surely you're capable of a bit deeper thought than that? Actions have consequences, whether there is free will or not. Why wouldn't people be held accountable? If your car has faulty brakes, you take it off the road because it is dangerous. You wouldn't continue driving it because you feel sorry for it, as it has no free will. If it has enough wrong and can't be repaired, maybe you scrap it. Similar principle. What you wouldn't do, is hate it or consider it evil. You might even spend lots of time trying to understand the fault for future reference. All it will change is the retributive nature of the systems we now have. It will remove the need for moral condemnation and render the "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" sentiment as baseless. It removes justification for further suffering and hatred. It will open up the possibility of learning in ways that are now not usually considered. It will never mean no one is accountable.
  10. Who's to say fictional or real regarding characters or even places for that matter, wasn't it Plato that wrote everything for or of Socrates? I mean if some things were not found, notes etc. et cetera-- that philosophy character could have been known only as myth in the future. UPDATE hahahaa ah maybe not a great example as there is so much written about him and his death, okay, how about jesus myth theory or is it ? like a repeating theme through history like ? what is is Mythras .. be right back....
  11. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    LOL. Your bubble will pop one day.........maybe.
  12. Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    You seem to confuse inappropriate or ill-advised with criminal. Criminal can be prosecuted. Lord knows, Trump and his minions are far from angelic in demeanor and behavior. Neither Left or Right holds a monopoly on being criminally stupid, something people in high places, of all stripes, seem to always get a pass on (Except Martha Stuart). That Mueller, of all people, after two years of investigation, indicted no Americans for criminal conspiracy to collude with foreign nationals to tamper with the election, pretty much says it all. Game over. They'll never have the votes for a successful Impeachment. Sorry it's not the result you wanted; God knows you're not alone in that. From this point on, all Trump haters can do is impotently flog a dead horse, sounding shriller, looking angrier while egg drips from their faces. Ain't Politics wonderful?

  14. US threatens to veto UN resolution on rape

    Come on, drama queen.
  15. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    I don't understand what the big deal is. The terrorists targeted Christians and westerners in response to Christchurch. They even proclaimed so. Trying to dissect what someone says when the obvious is known is a waste of time. Anyone intelligent understands that not all Christians were responsible for Christchurch and the same, not all Muslims are responsible for this attack. Above all, these are just sick people and don't represent any ideology.
  16. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    Yeah, why didn't the Republicans look at Hillary's taxes when they controlled the house? Ah, never mind- she released them during the election.
  17. The Screws are tightening on Iran

    Eeeeh I'll pipe in, the Trumpet had plenty of opportunity in various places. Even if he doesn't start an action or whatever it will be named, as they do that you know, he won't receive a nobel peace prize, which by the way probably says something about the people handing those out.
  18. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    Tell me Wistman… because it was revealed that Hilary Clinton received $145 million from Vlad Putin (essentially) for her role in selling 20% of US uranium stock to Russia (presumably),, was it part of Democrat's duties to look closely into Hilary's financial records...? No.....? Repeat after me, "Democrat - good... Republican - BAD!!!"
  19. Doing God's will.

    Guess no one should be held accountable for anything. No free will, no choice, no responsibility.
  20. Doing God's will.

    That's true for most people. Free will or not, you still have to wipe your backside lol. It does have implications in areas of jurisprudence and ethics though. Not necessarily the way people fear, as it won't change things too much and it won't bypass responsibility, but some of our systems do need to be more aligned with reality. ps. One of the main problems with it seems to be in areas of research into what "consciousness" itself is. There are lots of assumptions accepted about it (that it has free will for instance) that are holding us back. Lots of time and effort has been wasted looking something consistent with these assumptions, rather than trying to objectively study and understand what is.
  21. Dyeus Pater ( Zeus/ Jupiter) could possibly be the ancestor of 99 percent of Indo-European/ Indo-Aryan speakers. He was a deified ancestor. Cronos on the other hand is "Time" personified and completely fictional.
  22. I have to give them points for their brazen courage. The squeaky wheel gets the grease after all. A little moderation in their requests probably would have made their chances of getting free loot a lot better though.....
  23. Is this cthulhu?

    you can find it in Google earth with coordinates 77°10´10"S 126°54´59"W 2861 m mountain.
  24. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    Your right there`s nothing will stopped the radicals Islamic ideology of ending Christians, and Jews, At least trump is trying to stop it and not a world war.
  25. I don't believe you

    And this be yours.
