  1. Past hour
  2. I don't believe you

    When the disciples went out into the Empire to spread the word, the communities that welcomed them were Roman; some proselyte Jews. Judaism being evangelical in that era in that they accepted converts. Others were Romans, jaded with the old gods and enamored of what was called Eastern Mystery Cults. These Romans were instrumental in the spread of Christianity and it's almost as if the teachings of Jesus had preceded them before his crucifixion. The persecution of Christians is historically exaggerated as most of the time, they were accepted as just another fringe religion. They were regarded as "atheist" as they eschewed worship and propitiatory offerings to the traditional pantheon and, of course, the Emperor. That was usually the excuse for the infrequent and localized persecutions.
  3. "Ok to be gay" school lessons cause unrest

    That really surprises me. Quite amazing.
  4. Britain now a harsh and uncaring country

    The reality about social safety nets is they cost money and the more people collecting the less to go around. Free housing if you can’t pay, free income if you don’t work, free medical whether you can pay or not. It’s not sustainable. Hopefully the socialists in my country never force us to learn this obvious lesson.
  5. Climate Change is a Hoax

    I'm sorry bout that. LOL. Guess the Devil just made my body do it and bypassed my consciousness completely. What was it I did again?
  6. Psychic attack! Need help!

    I tried to help but you don't listen.
  7. Accumulation of wealth has never been a real pursuit of mine. If it had been...I'd be very wealthy. I am one of the most successful people I know.
  8. Climate Change is a Hoax

    Huh, there it is. No, see, I don't claim to know your motives. Just pointing out your actions.
  9. Atheism is incompatible with science

    CORRECTION ! many think they know an afterlife is not a viable idea.
  10. Nobody except Tom Haider supported you in that thread. It's quite obvious that the so called craft are reflections on a window. Your avoidance is duly noted. It seems to confirm the fact that all you have us an attitude to support your zealous approach. Oh come on, you said even in that thread that aliens are a possibility. You're just too scared to be straight forward as you know you got nothing but a bad attitude.
  11. Climate Change is a Hoax

    How so? I've asked you before to explain yourself and you haven't and now you claim to know my motives? Whatever dude. That's funny. Truely.
  12. Climate Change is a Hoax

    Yes. I rest my case! Also, I've done no such thing Sir.
  13. Climate Change is a Hoax

    I didn't say it was a liberal code. You did. Bad faith is actually more of a legal term of art. Functionally, it means that you aren't interested in a discussion of facts, and ignore whatever people say that you can't twist into some fantastical version of reality.
  14. Well, the boxwire in the one scene looks like it was maintained. Which means there are outriders and line riders, and a outrider who doesn't know every square inch of his "work area" is a lousy one. Somebody knows every square inch of that patch. Geodes come from a volcanic eruption. they are all over a strewnfield from one. Most of them have been well investigated. Which means a geologist knows the area also. Finally, unless that peashooter he has on is hip is full of ratshot for snakes. It's useless. Coyotes are too slick for anything but a rifle and a rustler's point man would have him glassed and his head blown off before he noticed him. This whole "adventure" was a joke. At least from a dumb Indian ranchhand's point of view.
  15. First off, what you've linked isn't a paper. It's written like an extended blog post, very disorganized, but mostly grammatically correct. A paper begins with a statement of the problem under consideration, a review of the sources and previous claims (along with citations) and a brief discussion of these sources and previous claims (mostly to show that you do know what you're talking about.) Secondly, every statement has to be backed up with fact and citations. For example, you say "Described as spanning between the sub chamber and the Nile. (considered a watertight component)"... and the evidence for "watertight component" is that ... you say it is, in spite of the fact that it's demonstrably not airtight and that air molecules are smaller than water molecules (water molecules are 2.75 angstroms: https://www.reference.com/science/size-water-molecule-78a78df6fa7af22f which is larger than two oxygen atoms (the oxygen molecule), but smaller than CO2 at 3 angstroms (https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/23372/whats-the-size-of-carbon-dioxide) If it leaks air, it's not watertight, either. You have not backed up any statement (for example, by proving that the GP is actually watertight because water pumps have to be kept inside the GP in order to keep water that flows down during the rains from forming a lake down there). You've just said "this is the way it is." Next, an engineering paper that shows hydraulic control will show the volumes of water involved. You make a claim about it controlling the flood of the Nile without stating how big the flood is, evidence from the Nileometers that it was controlled, volume of water transported on an hourly basis (and show that it's large enough to impact a flood that's 300 times the size of a Mississippi River flood) and evidence of statements from monuments showing the titles of the officials who were in charge of this, the evidence that they could engineer hydraulics, the explanation of why they didn't do it elsewhere. You also have to show that it was more efficient and pumped more water than the Bahr Yussef, which was constructed by Amenenhat III https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahr_Yussef (that the pyramid somehow manages to pump out more water than can fill a canal 15 feet deep and 15 fkilometers long. You will also have to show soil profiles that show it was active during the time you propose. The data, by the way, is out there. It doesn't support what you say, but it's out there. The pyramids are't 50 miles upriver from the Fayum and the lake. The pyramids are down river. The water has already passed the Fayum and Lake Moeris, 50 miles before it gets near the pyramids of Giza. And the Nile at that point is over a mile wide. The lake was a natural overflow area before the pyramids existed. (reference: 1905 book on the geology and history of the Fayum: https://archive.org/details/cu31924004049338/page/n6) And in my next post, I will go point by point over the document you uploaded, just to prove that I did read it once and for all.
  16. Climate Change is a Hoax

    You said it, what did you mean?
  17. Climate Change is a Hoax

    Heh. A liberal code. Say what now?
  18. Today
  19. @skinwalkerranch: If I post on your YouTube video it will probably be with a thumbs down! Post the coordinates and info here please.
  20. Meanwhile in the US, some genius thinks it's a great idea to cut down thousands of acres of old trees to put in a... ...put your best guess here... a solar farm.
  21. I don't believe you

    My apologies if I came off confrontational, too. Not my intentions. No worries Die, all good here.
  22. Climate Change is a Hoax

    True, but l would rather have a gas electrical plant covering a relatively small area, catch on fire, than 20 km's of wind turbines, on fire, falling apart, slaghtering eagles and other birds, (the bird catches the worm, lol) p****ing off local's and throwing the natural beauty idea. That's BS you mean,....never mind. You will have to give the CCC crowd a break, l threw them a curve ball with the wind turbine one, and the insults are flying. I don't see why considering that AU and the US have hundreds of years of gas, and Australia could shut down all of their coal fired power stations and replace them with up to 400 years worth of natural gas, supplying all of our country.
  23. Atheism is incompatible with science

    Exactly the point though. Evidence does explain properly those things many believe. That's also a strange conundrum. How does one continue to draw comfort of we know the belief is just a remnant of old ideas? Self validation. Again I think many know an afterlife is not a viable idea these days so many seek validation of beliefs, and get angry when some bring reality to the table. That seems self evident. People fear death. It's the ultimate injury one can't heal from. Nobody likes the idea of leaving loved ones behind and missing out in what is to come. The afterlife idea soothes that fear like a balm on a burn. I really question that. As we learn more, and schools bring vast amounts of information to individuals, surely more will start to ask 'why do people believe in a God?' We are barely out of the fire and brimstone age which was quite effective at maintaining those validations to seek comfort in. Those days are rapidly fading away which has to affect the next generations who have better answers to questions of existance than old stories. Even now with the information available I honestly wonder how people can see the god idea as a valid arguable position. Nothing supports the idea, and science continues to chip away at old myths.
  24. Climate Change is a Hoax

    I think you should make it clear what you are trying to say Sir. I saw/read exactly what Doug said here. Also I have no "bad faith" in anything. I know that is some liberal code now but to the rest of us it doesn't mean anything.
