Haz27:

Then please explain why the South, that was traditionally Democratic, suddenly switched to Republican in the 60s-70s, and has been that way ever since?

You are CONSTANTLY referring to Yuri Bezmanov. Why is that? It's almost as if you are relying on him to think for you, because you can't do it for yourself. Talk about being brainwashed! You are constantly parroting the words of one man.

Why don't you stick to your Australian history, which you claim to know so well. You don't seem to know much about American history, other than the propaganda you get from rightist news sources.

If all the glaciers on the earth melted, the sea level would rise by around 230 feet. However, to cover all the mountaintops (as in the Flood account), the sea level would have to rise 29029 feet, which is more than 100 times as much. This means that less than 1% of the flood waters is stored in glaciers. Where did the other 99% go?

Haz27:

Stop living in Bezmanov's bubble. You quote him MUCH more often than the Bible, showing where you draw inspiration. I don't care about Australian politics. I speak about American politics, because I live here.

Democrats were conservatives (and some were racists - they formed the KKK), and Republicans were progressives. The Eisenhower platform of 1956 read very much like the Democratic platform today. Today, KKK members always run as Republicans.

After the Civil Rights movement of the '60s, disgruntled racist Democrats in the south split and voted for independent ex-Democrat George Wallace. After that, they became Republicans, and most of the southern states that used to be Democrat have been solid red for decades.

Haz27:

1956 Eisenhower REPUBLICAN platform was similar to Democrat platforms today.

"destroying our country"?

Destructive tariffs on exports, forcing companies like Harley Davidson to close and rebuild in Europe, or causing China and Mexico to stop buying our crops, damaging our economy so we have to pay $12 BILLION to bail out farmers.

Rolling back EPA protections, so large corporations can now pollute the air we breathe and water we drink, and selling off our beautiful government lands for corporate explotation.

Ruining our country's reputation in the rest of the world, and angering all of our allies who now say we can't be relied on.

Those are all on TRUMP.

Steveng:

Whenever something seemingly unnatural happens, many assume it's demonic rather than divine intervention or natural phenomena. For centuries, Witches were burned and saints were persecuted and executed by supertitious mobs. Yes, demonic activity exists, but one should not automatically assume it's involved.

There is a similar tendency to automatically attribute supernatural explanations for anything unusual, rather than natural explanations. Yes, supernatural events happen, but one should not automatically assume they are involved.

Just like Unidentified Flying Objects - if you see something strange in the sky, it's foolish to automatically assume it's an alien. It's usually something natural you don't recognize.

You wrote: Have you ever wondered, What would happen if all the Glaciers of the world melted?

This is is one of the warnings of climate change. Sea levels are predicted to rise three feet by the end of the decade, and there are several island nations like Narau and the Marshall Islands that could totally disappear as a result.

BTW, thanks for not correcting me on my vocabulary. The spell correction on my IPad changes my words and apostrophes on words are made impossible.

Everybody makes typos. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors only become problematic if they are so bad that they cause confusion about what is meant, e.g. if they cause ambiguity in meaning, or if they are total word salad.

Abraham Lincoln was a PROGRESSIVE.

150 years ago, conservatives were Democrats and Republicans were progressives, even into the early 20th century. The 1956 Eisenhower platform was similiar to Democratic platforms today.

But around the 60s, Republicans saw themselves as the only force capable of stopping communism, so they changed thier platform to woo Christians and conservatives. This is why the two respective party platforms are almost diametrically opposed to what they were 50-100 years ago.

Trump just BOASTED of keeping evidence from Congress - what he was impeached for.
Trump said "Take her out. Get rid of her" of our ambassador. He was ordering a hit!
And STILL you follow him!

If Jehovah's Witnesses were REALLY intellectually honest in their devotion to God's original name being used, they would leave the Tetragrammaton untranslated, as is, in Hebrew, in their own translation, just as they point out for some LXX manuscripts, and they conjecture about early NT manuscripts that no longer exist.

David:

You wrote: Since you view it as a parable, Do you believe Noah even existed?

I am not sure. But why is it important whether I do or don't? Why is it important whether you do or don't? Is there anything important in life that you would do one way if Noah was an actual real person, and a different way if he were merely a character in a parable? If not, then the fact of his reality has no vital importance to your life.

Haz27:

I live in Arizona. We have hot summers, but those usually peak in June, because they are tempered by a monsoon season that typically hits from around the start of July until mid-September. This year, the monsoon season was almost non-existent. North polar reasons are warming so much that it's now possible to sail a ship to the north pole - previously unheard of. Greenland glaciers are melting, causing areas of land to appear that have never been seen in recorded history.

97% of peer-reviewed studies in scientific journals agree on climate change. Scientists who disagree often work for oil and coal interests, and have vested interests in not being objective. But of course you will believe 97% lie and 3% tell the truth.

Haz27:

How, exactly, is this a FACT?

Yes, wildfires are caused because of natural fuels, but those fuels are MORE LIKELY to ignite when temperatures are hotter and water is less scarce. So even though climate change is not THE ONE cause of wildfires, it IS a major contributing factor, so it's totally incorrect to say it has "NOTHING" to do with bushfires.

From: A sinking feeling: why is the president of the tiny Pacific island nation of Nauru so concerned about climate change?

"With sea levels expected to rise three feet or more by the end of the century, climate change threatens the very existence of many countries in the Pacific.

David831:

He said what his name was, NOT that it was ESSENTIAL to address him name, rather than title.

Only Jehovah's Witnesses insist on this, and despite choking on this gnat, THEY WRITE AND PRONOUNCE IT IN WAYS THEY KNOW ARE INCORRECT. Why? Because the incorrect name is more popular?!

Give me a break! Either the name is important, or it isn't. If it's important, you should be ACCURATE, and you blaspheme by knowingly teaching others to use an INCORRECT NAME. If it isn't, you lay burdens on everyone else God himself never laid, making you hypocrites.

So, are you blasphemers or hypocrites? Choose one.

Many also abandon JW and their cultic ways.

Haz27:

BOTH CNN (left) and Fox (right) polls showed 51% for impeachment. But you won't listen because they don't tell you want you want to hear.

Climate change lies?! YOUR ENTIRE CONTINENT IS ON FIRE because of ridiculously hot weather, hotter than any in history. People from neighboring island countries seek refuge in NZ because their islands will be totaly under water in 10-15 years. You can sail a boat to the NORTH POLE. Yet STILL you don't believe?!

Blackmailing a foreign nation to influence our election IS impeachable. So is obstructing Congress - charges levied against BOTH Clinton and Nixon.

David:

You missed my point. The Bible includes many stories, whose purpose is to teach us how to relate to God - i.e. to teach us faith. The purpose of the Bible is NOT to each us science.

Genesis 1+2 orders of creation contradict each other.

1 Kings 7:23 and 2 Chronicles 4:2 imply Pi (ratio of circumference to diameter) is 3 (30/10), yet it's actually 3.14159... So one must conclude one of the following:
1) The Bible is wrong
2) Fundamental laws of physics have changed in the last few thousand years, or
3) The numbers given were approximate, because the Bible is not a book of science.
I personally go with 3.

Jesus constantly taught in parables - non-factual stories that taught truths.

Haz27:

"Trump's popularity"!? Fox News's OWN POLL said that 51% of Americans were in favor of impeachment and removal, 4% were in favor of impeachment without removal, and only 40% were against impeachment.

The MAJORITY of Americans (and this is from a media sight with a RIGHT-leaning bias) believe that Trump did something wrong, and SO wrong that it merits him being removed from office.

David8318:

I don't "advocate" changing anything. I say YOUR insistence that WE use a particular form, which is inaccurate, is hypocritical.

I have no problem with "Jehovah", "Yahweh", "Lord", or "God". Everyone knows whom we mean.

It is YOU Jehovah's Witnesses who INSIST on using God's actual name, and condemn anyone else who does not. Because of this, YOU should be held to YOUR OWN self-imposed standards.

YOU all know "Jehovah" is inaccurate, but use it it because it's "better known". However, you replace better-known words like "bishop" by "overseer", so you're not even consistent in your preference for better-known terms.

jerry6593:

Nobody is denigrating "a free country". We complain about a blatantly lawless act that may be a war crime. Behave like terrorists by violating our own allies' sovereignty and international law, and assassinating a member of a foreign government that we are not even at war with, lowers us to becoming terrorists ourselves, which makes us hypocrites.

Iraq and Saudi Arabia are composed mostly of Muslims, and are our allies. Are they "Muslim animals" too? There are good and bad Muslims, and Christians, and Americans. Judge people by what they do, not who they are.

David:

800 million cubic miles of water is MANY more cubic miles of steam. Where would that go?

My point is, the Bible is a book about faith, not science. You would read the Joy of Cooking to make a pot roast, but not to study nuclear physics. If we read too closely between the lines of any book to discover facts about a subject that is not its main focus, we are often forced to make many inferences, most of which are total speculation.

God omitted many details from the Bible, because presumably he didn't consider them important for us to need to know.

Reality is reality. Things are the way they are, regardless of how we think about them. Our perceptions of reality may differ, but actual reality does not.

David831:

from introductory material on page 23 of 1969 edition of the Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures, published by the Watchtower Society:

"While inclining to view the pronunciation 'Yahweh' as the more correct way, we have retained the form 'Jehovah' because of people's familiarity with it since the 14th century."

They KNOW "Jehovah" is wrong, but use it ANYWAY because it's more popular (even though they change popular "bishop" to "overseer" etc.) If your name was "Howard", yet some people called you "Harold" and told others to do the same because it's a more popular name, would you be impressed, or disgusted?

Nicole_Lacey:

TRUMP told Iraq to enter peace negotiations with Iran. Iraqi Prime Minister said Soleimani was there to talk peace.

Obama got CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL. Trump informed FUNDRAISER GUESTS at Mar a Lago of the raid but not Congress. Money over law.

(from Wikipedia) Soleimani was a Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and commander of its Quds Force. He was the second most powerful person in Iran behind Ayatollah Khamenei, and his right-hand man.

I.e. he was a Major General, the Iranian equivalent of Patton or Schwartzkopf. How do you think Americans (and people in other countries) would react if a country THAT WE WERE NOT AT WAR WITH, staged a missile strike that assassinated General Patton?
