Flat Earth Theory / Re: Direct flights in southern hemisphere
« on: October 07, 2015, 09:10:29 AM »
 for me,  the Bible codes are a knock out blow for the supernatural origin of Scripture; ; ;

The God of the Bible is the only real contender for the rôle of all powerful, all loving, all knowing, all wise and all just Creator that our world testifies to in a million ways every day.

...and....our flat, snow-globed, "miniaturised marvel" Earth/'universe' seals up the sum of it  :-B

Has nothing to do with the bible.

its got every-thing to do with it!

rockets quite obviously work....even @ great seen by these recent, Y-tb vids... they work in space ?  (as commonly understood....viz "outer space")

i/no-one's ever been up there to prove they do!
ii/they could never penetrate through the upper layers of the thermo-sphere any-way
iii/they won't work in a vacuum ......and there's no real proof that they can
(assuming, of course, that the very upper regions of 'the atmosphere' are a vacuum, as's been up that high)

Philosophy, Religion & Society / 91st Psalm

the 91st it, believe it and live it.....and you will be delivered  :)

the Douay-Rheims version (prblby the most accurate English translation, from the Vulgate)

Qui habitat.
The just is secure under the protection of God.

The praise of a canticle for David.

He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob.
He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust.
For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word.
He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust.
His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.

Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee. 
But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: and shalt see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou, O Lord, art my hope: thou hast made the most High thy refuge.
There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling.

For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways.
In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 
Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.
Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name. 
He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him.

I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.

Even if Turnbull doesn't change any existing policies, he'll have a much better chance of implementing them than Abbott ever did

not really!

Turnbull is just a stop-gap until the next election;

he's too weak and too weak a character to implement any radical or serious policy changes

normally, i wouldn't venture to post links to this fellow here since he is, quite definitely, anti-Christian but his audio-book of David Kupelian's The Marketing of Evil is brilliant...esp his reading/commentary on the last chapter of same  "Last, Best Hope: The Fall and Rise of American Christianity";

it is a scathing critique of many American (and other Western) Christians who think salvation is nothing more than a get-out-of-Hell free card and a carte blanche to live how-ever they damn well please totally ignoring Jesus' strident injunctions to "keep the commandments";  >:(

(go to abt the 1hr mark for the really 'meaty' stuff..... other chapters here)

more highly insightful commentary from the abv-mentioned source......
viz a 1977 book, "The Feminization of American Culture", by a US feminist, Ann Douglas......

old-style Calvinism with masculine preachers, intellectual rigor, foundation of America's first and top universities, gives way, via complete disestablishment of Protestant churches by 1833, to a softened, sentimentalized, femized consumer mass culture dominated by a new alliance between a new breed of preachers and middle-class women. originally the religious DOCTRINE mattered in a church, when colonies in NE at least were founded; but this concern declined, and churchgoing became mere middle-class social function. feeling > thought. niceness > rigor. femininity > logic or masculinity, first within the cultural sphere (evolution from 1820 to 1875), then later, in 1900 on, in ENTIRE sphere (aided by jews, the feminized mindset for whites dominates not just the reading culture of middle class, but the entire, uh, Ideosphere). protestantism was a very different thing after than before. she puts dates at 1820 and 1875. different type of man becomes preacher; different concerns (serious theology vs catering to women clients/customers) in 1900 than in 1800. loss of status as preacher becomes another supplicant to the Shesus. from Edwardseans (sinners in the hands of an angry god - focused on INDIVIDUAL soul and sin and salvation) to namby-pamby anti-intellectual feelings-mush centered on love - which quickly perverted into Social Gospel around 1900. christianity in america evolved into something very useful to jews, just about the time they showed up. of course she doesnt touch on that part. ... douglas laments the rise of an anti-intellectual mass-consumerist, feminized but not feminist american culture; she wishes calvinist patriarchal intellectual rigor had opened to others rather than lowered. but can you have serious intellectual culture AND feminism at the same time? is intellectual culture consistent with non-patriarchal values, with matriarchy? douglas thinks so. but she might be wrong
(my comments: jews didn't start to have a major impact on US culture until well after devolution of Christianity from the devout Calvinism of Jonathan Edwards must, here, be laid @ the feet of other, more sinister forces...."doctrines of demons" operating subtly behind the scenes and laying the foundatins for "the great falling away" of the latter ¼ of the twentieth century)

PM Abbott upset the shooters in Australia;
(with his ban on the Adler shotgun)
that's the best part of one million votes (if you include those in the application process as well as those already granted) ;
since most electoral seats in Australia are marginal, one million votes is more than enough to toss any incumbent gov' out on its ear  :o
(i'd "hazard a guess" that some of the Liberal power-brokers have sussed this and, thus, want Abbott out before he does any more major collateral damage)

the New Birth in the New Testament;
(he puts it better than i could  :(  )

even "the Laws of Noah" which, in and of them-selves, seem fairly straight-forward and easy would be totally impossible for man to keep;  :(

Jesus said that even if a man looks at a woman with lust, then, he has committed adultery in his heart;

the Scriptures say that the heart (i.e: the flesh) is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things!

St Paul, the great apostle to the gentiles, bemoaned the fact that "in me dwells no good thing";

Jesus' admonition reminds me of a sermon my old pastor preached many years ago.....abt a passage in the Epistle of St James;

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

he likened the human psyche/flesh to a large work-bench in a garage where a home hobbyist had lots of little projects in different stages of completion......but the ultimate result of them all, upon completion, is death ("the wages of sin is death")....the Devil wants people to commit greater and greater sins so that they are further and further removed from God's"a white lie" can, for instance, lead to "a black (intentional) lie" to intentional false witness to guilt to anger to fear to hatred and, then, if the opportunity presents itself, to murder......the ultimate conclusion of the "project" :(

all  this, of course, totally negates most of modern psychiatry although not necessarily the 'approach' of Thomas Szasz;
( ; )

strange that Szasz is an 'atheist';
maybe he should'v read C S Lewis  :(

Almighty God created man for the purpose of fellow-shipping with Him and to love Him;
even the angels do not have this privilege;
man was, originally, higher than the angels and, in fact, the angels feared Adam;
how-ever, man Almighty God knew he would;
but.....Almighty God provided a way for man to regain that fellowship....the Lord Jesus Christ;
that is the only way to "get right with God";
without holiness, it is impossible to see God;
God wants us to be holy so we can be with Him;

the purpose of the law is to show man that he cannot "get right with God" by his own efforts;
that man is a worthless, condemned sinner only fit for damnation in the eyes of a holy God;
there is one thing and one thing only that can justify man in God's sight....the vicarious, shed blood of Jesus Christ;

when I see the blood, i will pass over

Buddha prophecises of the coming of the Christ!   :o

the testimony of "Athet Pyan Shinthaw Paulu" (Paul who came back to life!), a devout Buddhist monk, who was dead for THREE WHOLE DAYS   :o

an amusing little docco' from the BBC.....

(whilst some Buddhist teachings do, indeed, resemble Christian ones, to claim that Jesus was a Buddhist monk is drawing a very long bow death & resurrection of Jesus Christ totally negates all such "analogies" St Paul noted: if Christ be not risen then our faith is in vain! )

a commentary on the Epistle of St Paul to the Romans;

the law of sin and death  :(

no man can be 'saved' by the keeping of the Law because no man can keep it;

from the Law comes only condemnation;

only the Spirit of the Living Christ can free you!  ;D

4½-odd hrs of audio but well worth a listen.....
(not sure what episode the compere was referring to early on where some REs left in a huff  ??? )

"babies in hell" sounds like the foul doctrines of Calvinism to me :(

all the evidence from NDEs clearly says OTW......

also: shall not the Judge of all the Earth do right?

is most of our current technology 'sourced' from alien/demonic/fallen angels?
