  1. Past hour
  2. I have been following your argument with that individual. Unfortunately I think s/he is not all there in the head. All your hard work debunking will fall on deaf ears unfortunately.
  3. Including the bit about criminalising non-criminal activities ?
  4. My final post (I hope) when it comes to dealing with narcissists and sociopaths. They hate brightness, positivity, individualism, happiness, and people in their own little world. Switch off from whats going on around you and be super bright, positive, individualistic, and happy in what you do. The narcs hate is as they want your attention to be on them and for to be super miserable in life so they can shine. Smile! Smile when they are around, when you are talking to them (if you cannot avoid interacting with them) and smile when you are focused on your own tasks. The panic will start shortly after (although the initial stages will be hidden from sight). But they will try to deflate you. Keep smiling. Then soon that panic will turn to shear terror lmao.
  5. Vegans just destroy their microbiom and skeletal system. You immune system needs the chemicals found in meat. Your skeleton needs Lactobacillus.
  6. And sorry - I forgot to answer your second question. Sam Newnam, the pawn shop owner did not testify. He made that statement in the A&E series.
  7. Nuking it would be more fun, though.
  8. about 15% of people are real idiots, other 15% are smart, and see world how it really is, the rest, 70% are really neither,
  9. You mean data mining Facebook data? Hillary didn't data moine Facebook like Obama before her?
  10. What storm? I said that in order to hold back walls of water, high wind speeds would be needed. How high? At 7000 feet, about four times the speed of sound. What is the fastest wind speed people can walk upright in? About 85 mph. I then said "obviously they didn't go that way." You should read the post before jumping off the deep end. No evidence of a large Hebrew population in Egypt? In Coptic, the old name of Tell el-Faqus means "Ruin of the Jews." (The name actually comes through Greek and means a flowing or discharge of water, as in irrigation.). Thutmose II ordered its construction right on top of the Darb es Shur. Good thinking there: build a place for your enemies so it blocks your major trading route to the east! Just who do you think the Hyksos were? At the time of the Hyksos "invasion" there was no such thing as "Israel," but there were many fair-skinned "Asiatics" (Semitic tribes). The Nile delta was subject to wave after wave of immigrants and invaders, including hundreds of thousands of light-skinned "Asiatics." Thutmose III brought back 90,000 slaves from Caanan. The Merneptah (1213 - 1203 BC) stele commorates Merneptah's victory over Israel: "Israel is laid waste, his seed is not." Seti I (1394 - 1279) mentions "Israel" on a rock shelter wall. These are among the very earliest mentions of "Israel." Were these slaves? Thutmose III's 90,000 prisoners were. Seti I rounded up as many "lepers and other impure people (meaning Semites) as he could find, intending to expel them from Egypt, but then changed his mind and put them to work building Pi-ramses. Certainly looked like slavery to the victims who had formerly been free citizens and even influencial ones. After the slave revolt (led by Osar-Seph [Joseph]), the people spent ten years "despoiling the Egyptians." The Hyksos Pharaoh Khean (pronouned "John") had a Hebrew name! The last four Pharaohs of the 16th Dynasty were Jacob-baal, Yakbam, Yoam and Amu. Jacob is a Semitic word meaning "follower." Jacob-baal is a follower of God. So is Jacob-Israel from the Bible. The names Yakbam and Isaac have a common origin through Amoritic. The name Amu means father, as does Amram, Moses' father, in Hebrew. I propose that the geneology presented for the biblical Moses is actually a Hyksos king list. The first king in the 18th Dynasty was Ahmose. So he even had the same name as Moses! Does this prove the account of Moses' genealogy as given by the Bible? No. But it does demonstrate some confusion among the writers and it also demonstrates a huge Semitic (later Israelite) impact on Egypt. More than that: Egyptians from around Cairo are lighter-skinned than those from Luxor. Foreigners have even influenced Egypt's genetic makeup. As for "no people in the desert at this time:" Thutmose III reopened the Sinai copper mines about 1500 BC. They continued in seasonal operation until Ramses VI shut them down about 1140 BC. There were numerous mining and smelting operations, incluidng Serabit el Khadim (Pillars of the Slaves); Rephidim (Place of Pillars in the Bible); Elat (Goddess); Punyon; Ebronah and al Mene'ijje. Tell Masos (Kadesh Barnea?) has produced coins with the likeness of Seti II on them and et-Taba (Jotbathah) supplied wood to Elat and Pharaoh's Island (Ezion Geber) to be used in smelting the ore. Estimates are that there were about 4500 people in Sinai at this time and as that is the carrying capacity of Sinai, there weren't any large settlements - just a few small villages. Feiran Oasis, the largest one in Sinai, had a population of about 200. Some of those springs mentioned in Exodus would have trouble supporting ten families, let alone hundreds of them. Wheat shipped from Egypt could have increased the number of people living in Sinai, and probably did, but that is expensive and wouldn't work to support the hundreds of thousands called for in the Bible. So once again, what started as "a feather in the mornin'" grew to be "a featherbed in the afternoon." But the grain of truth is there. Doug
  11. Pacific plastic dump far larger than feared: study The vast dump of plastic waste swirling in the Pacific ocean is now bigger than France, Germany and Spain combined -- far larger than previously feared -- and is growing rapidly, a study published Thursday warned. They found that it now stretches 1.6 million square kilometres and, they warn, it's growing. "The inflow of plastic to the patch continues to exceed the outflow," Lebreton said. What's more, the scale of the largest plastic dump on the planet literally only scratches the surface of the problem. "Levels of plastic pollution in deep water layers and seafloor below the GPGP remain unknown," the study warned.
  12. Interesting how they soft soap what teh Chinese did a few years ago by making it sound like they were trying to deorbit a satellite.
  13. I'm getting rather tired of my recent trend of long-winded responses that involve dissecting every single point from someone's post. So I'll just focus on the one thing that alarmingly stood out the most. I can somewhat understand the argument that overpopulation is a problem. However what you're suggesting here is downright scary. Of course Eugenics was popular a hundred years ago. So were Jim Crow laws, and a myriad of other abhorrent things that we can for the most part look back on with disdain. I mean, it sounds as if you're literally flirting with the idea of outright Nazism here. Overpopulation is undoubtedly a problem that needs addressing, however I don't believe in any way that Eugenics is really the desired solution, nor is it the only solution. Anyway, with that I think I'm done with this thread. I keep getting off-topic anyway, and I've already made my point in regards to the topic many times over. No need to repeat myself essentially...
  14. Your comment makes perfect sense in the context of this thread, but I was saying that in isolation it'd strike you as being very unusual. As to the rest of it, it was just two general comments not directed at anyone in particular. But what I meant by them is that there is a surviving member of the same group this giant bear belonged to, and that's the spectacled bear, which is a very small bear. And as this is the only species of bear found in South America, and Paddington was from 'darkest Peru' he was a spectacled bear, and the Paddington stories by Michael Bond are set in London.
  15. The OP defended this using the "amateur" excuse.....and I'm lying about Native culture.....*sigh*
  16. Podo

    Spirit animals should always be real creatures, like sasquatches, and not purely fictional things, like trickle-down economics.

      My spirit animal is a 70cc Jonsered .

  17. That's where this whole argument is so old fashioned. What Americans consider as "Socialism" is really old school Communism, which exists hardly anywhere now (except perhaps Cuba). Even still technically Communist countrysides like China and Vietnam are pretty much capitalist economically now. Socialism, in the terms that are being talked about here, is about social welfare and particularly healthcare now. The American way of denigrating socialist ideas because "= Communism" is so outdated.
  18. none of those are really socialist countries, they may have some socialist policies, but socialism assumes no private enterprise,every business is owned by gvmnt, the way it was in real socialist countries ussr and Warsaw pakt countries. owning a business was illegal. reselling something was illegal as well, in ussr there was a criminal charge for that, "unearned income'
  19. I used to be a vegan. Its not a bad choice. However the hungry you have. Plus a lot of beans, fiber, and salads give new meaning to the term "salad shooter".
  20. I was actually taught by elders. My family has been Meteiinuu for generations. I know the Miidiiwiin and what the Nape and Lakota Believe. I am a tribal mask carver! and a Kiimochnii! I am am a Native advisors for archaeologists and museums with a history, archaeology and anthropology background. WHO THE **** ARE YOU?
  21. It would be a fascinating case study for psychologists if not for the fact that even the results of that would most likely be politicized...
  22. From the Internet, I'm not putting it forward because it necessarily agrees with my point of view, and I expect you could argue until the cows come in for milking how many of these are really Socilaist and so on and so on probably forever, but According to Below, you will see some of the most socialistic nations in the world today: China. Denmark. Finland. Netherlands. Canada. Sweden. Norway. Ireland. (in terms of social welfare, healthcare and so on, not State control of the means of production.) I expect China would fit your view of what socialism is about, but how many of the others are, what was it, counter to liberty, free will, and innovation? (and China seems to have quite a go-ahead economy currently, as well.)
  23. I don't really know enough on this to dispute you Doug, but just curious if you agree or disagree with this summation by a blogger who's posted several articles in a series on Exodus: From:
  24. Please point me to the testimony that says Todd confused the 24th and the 25th. You're making assumptions that are simply not true. Of course it matters. Even if the email account was password protected - if Laci communicated with people via that email it means she knew that password. So you think Scott, pretending to be Laci - accessed an email account that only he used and only he knew the password to? ETA: Sorry - it was Buehler's testimony: GERAGOS: Now, she also told you that she would communicate with Laci and Scott via an e-mail site called SOPETE1, correct? BUEHLER: That's correct. GERAGOS: That's what she knew Laci and Scott's MSN Messenger e-mail site to be? BUEHLER: That's correct. GERAGOS: She knew that because she was involved in an internet group with other neighbors in the area; is that what she told you? BUEHLER: Yes.
