Title: creation/evolution
Post by: Drich0150 on June 19, 2017, 04:13:29 PM
In my last post I answer a question "who did Adam's son's mary" With: the evolved man outside the garden.

Then I relaize I never shared my version of Origins with you

Very simply put, I point out their is no time line between the creation of man and the fall of man. I also point out that outside of details of creation itself everything mentioned, takes place in the Garden. Basically between the four rivers that define it, God created a picture of the world that would be consistent with the evolutionary progress of man at the time of the fall. (whatever evolution says was from the beginning to about 6000 years ago)

Evolved man or "monkey man" (man who developed outside the Garden)  is man without a soul, and In the Garden Man the one whom God breathed life into, would be man with a soul. Keeping in mind that the Genesis 2 account is a garden only account.

 That would leave room for whole complete fossil record that could not biblically be reconciled before. meaning how ever long science needs from the beginning to the fall of man could have happened while adam and eve were in the garden. It also explains the city Cain moved to and the wives and husbands the children of Adam and Eve took for themselves. (They intermingled with monkey man/woman and pass their gift/soul onto their children.)

Now I know the goto verse to disprove this is in Genesis 5:4 After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. 5 So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.

In the English it seems that Adam's total existence was 930 years. But when we look at the Hebrew the word that is translated "lived" is:Chaya it means:1) to live, have life, remain alive, sustain life etc... (In short Mortal life)

At the fall Adam's eternal existence with God died as promised in Gen 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

When they were exiled they were given "Chay" which means a Mortal life, of plants, of animals, dependent on water.
Genesis 3:
17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.

At this point Adam's immortality ended and his clock started on his 930 years his "chay/mortal life." These were all of the days He spent on THIS Earth. (not the Garden/Presents of God/Heaven)


How do we know they were immortal in the Garden with God? because of Genesis 2:16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;

Amongest those trees was the tree of life. What did the tree of life do?

Genesis 3:22Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"--

So to recap:
God created Man and woman and placed them in the garden. They could have been there a day before eating the forbidden fruit or they could have been there the 900 million bazillion years the scientist believe it took to evolve. Why? because there is no recorded time time between: "In the beginning" and the fall of man. Only speculation because we can count the generations back 6000 or so years.

When in fact all we can really say is that man has been out of the Garden 6000 or so years. We know the Garden was a sanctuary, and that God kept Man created in His image there for an undisclosed amount of time. This does not means the rest of the world did not have to evolve as the undeniable fossil record proves.

Something very important to note this is NOT "Gap theory" or Creation theory as made popular in the 17 century. Even though the empty term Gap Creation theory can apply, as far as I know this is something very new.

Why is it important to distance this theory from Gap creation theory?? Because it combines the unmolested Genesis account AS RECORDED IN THE BIBLE, with the evolutionary data we have discovered and can not other wise reconcile. Without Adding anything to scripture or taking anything away. This also explains several other creation "paradoxes" that atheist tend to use to disprove the genesis account.

I have only taken the face value account of Genesis and lined the holes up with the holes in the evolutionary account of origins and they fit together perfectly by simply leaving out the time line the church and others put on the creation narritive.


Note: before this all gets out of hand, know I'm not teaching this nor am I saying God say whatever.. This is one of many possiblities as to the origins of man and this world. This to me simply assimilated both narritives into a neat little package I'VE never heard discussed before unless I brought it up.

1. Where are you getting this from?

2. Adam was not the last man in the Bible to have lived an unnaturally long life, so your explanation for how he was so old does not help.

3. So if Adam and Even had children in the Garden of Eden, as you suggest, then did God punish them for things their parents did?

4. If I'm understanding you right, you're saying that God allowed man to evolve over time, and that before Adam, none of them had a soul. Are you're saying that the children of Adam and Eve married and had children evolved humans who had no souls?

5. How do you account for the Bible saying that God created Adam on the sixth day of creation? If man evolved over millions of years, then creating Adam from clay and Eve from his rib would be completely unnecessary. Humans are already there! And if they were created before evolution came up with humans, then what was the point of waiting for evolution to happen? Humans are already there!

6. Did death exist before the Fall? If not, your explanation does not explain the fossil record at all. Also, evolution requires death to work, because the ones most likely to survive and have children before dying would pass on their genes. But if death did happen before the Fall, then you contradict the Bible, which says that God cursed the land and the animals after Adam sinned.

7. The creation story still says that the Earth and was filled with vegetation before the sun and stars were made, that sea life and aviary life were created at the same time, and that humans and all life on land was created on the same day. Even if you weave microscopic life and dinosaurs into the narrative, and even if you treated each day as symbolic of a period of hundreds of millions of years, the order of things would still be WAY off. Also note that the Bible never says that God created the waters. It was already there.

1. Where are you getting this from?
was shown in a waking dream after praying over the matter looking for an answer. the whole thing including my first draft took like 20 mins

Quote
2. Adam was not the last man in the Bible to have lived an unnaturally long life, so your explanation for how he was so old does not help.
The counter to the argument is Adam live 930 meaning from his creation by God the first time. which means then the garden is 6000 old if you count back from now through Christ and the genealogies found in the book of MT to Adam. but through my explanation Adam live 930 after the garden which means the fall of man took place 6000, not the birth of adam which makes the Garden/gen 2 a whole lot older.

Quote
3. So if Adam and Even had children in the Garden of Eden, as you suggest, then did God punish them for things their parents did?
they didn't have kids in the garden. they had them outside the garden when the bible says they did. think of the garden as a fish bowl where time stood still for billions of years. and the rest of the world evolves naturally like science says it does.
Quote

4. If I'm understanding you right, you're saying that God allowed man to evolve over time, and that before Adam, none of them had a soul.
/quote] not allow to preach but if you look after day seven and God rests in Genesis 2 the chapter describes a second creation which is out of sequence of chapter 1. that is because it does not describe the creation of the heaven and earth but of what happened day 3 1/2 outside the garden, and God builds the garden and everything inside it sometime on the third day. so everything that happens in genesis from then on happens in the garden at it's own pace, while the rest of the world is left to evolve on it's own
Quote
Are you're saying that the children of Adam and Eve married and had children evolved humans who had no souls?
no souls right, because God gave Adam "the breath of life which translates 'living soul' the 6th day man was just man made in the image of God. we simply assume his name is adam after the man made in the garden, but nothing in gen 1 or 2 says they are the same man.

Quote
5. How do you account for the Bible saying that God created Adam on the sixth day of creation?
you mean monkey man or evolved man.. as before nothing says this man made in God's image was the Adam God gave a soul.
Quote
If man evolved over millions of years, then creating Adam from clay and Eve from his rib would be completely unnecessary.
Remember God created eve in the garden on a literal day three women would not evolve for billions of years.
Quote
Humans are already there!
or rather the seedsof humanity.
Quote
And if they were created before evolution came up with humans, then what was the point of waiting for evolution to happen? Humans are already there!
genetic stock for the sons and daughters of adam to breed with so that they would fill the world, and eventually heaven with saved souls.
Quote
6. Did death exist before the Fall?
not in the garden

Quote
If not, your explanation does not explain the fossil record at all.
there were never any fossils found in the purposed garden site.

Quote
Also, evolution requires death to work, because the ones most likely to survive and have children before dying would pass on their genes. But if death did happen before the Fall, then you contradict the Bible, which says that God cursed the land and the animals after Adam sinned.
what happens in the garden stayed in the garden. the rest of the world evolved naturally.
Quote
7. The creation story still says that the Earth and was filled with vegetation before the sun and stars were made,
holy crap dude. God made light on day one what the friggen problem is? can you not phathom light with out the sun? seriously never turned on a light bulb? do you think if we can rig a light bulb God (who idk is described of being made of light/the substance made on day one with out the SUN) couldn't figure out how to illuminate the earth on a cloudy day? Maybe this explains how our oldest species of plants grow far better in different light other than natural sun light.
Quote
that sea life and aviary life were created at the same time, and that humans and all life on land was created on the same day.
All you need do to resolve all of this is ask one question. Does the ancient hebrew have a modern understanding of life? The answe is no. so when you see specific creatures know the bible is not talking about specific geneus and species. it can't as those classification and names had not been invented yet. So the translators work backwards into a more simplistic zoological understanding. Ever heard the "bird bat debate?" that is some obscure verse God calls a bat a bird of the air? What if I told you the hebrew langage was not so subdivided back then and could not lingustically divide a bird from bat. for them back then two things flew birds "tsippor" and insects davar.

So like it our not what I am saying is the hebrew understanding of the study of anaimal life on the planet was.... limited. they may say bird you may say dinosaur you may primordial ooze they may say fish because how animals where distinguished were more about where they lived and what they ate then philum geneus and species.

and if every day was just a single day? and God simply seeded those species on those days?

That even exlains why He made the garden on day 3 1/2 (couldn't wait to see what was going to be what 100 billion years later.) maybe the garden was a porthole where he could see the future and what each seed would do who knows.

OP,

Present evidence, or I don't care what bends and twists you force your brain into.

I did in the OP

or did you not understand the evidence when it was staring back at you?

I showed conclusively that there is no time line between the end of creation, and the fall of man as we all once persumed.. That means all of this could indeed have happened. Why? because if Adam's life was 930 on this world (and not incuding the garden) then the earth could have been created in 7 days and still have evolve from whatever science now says happened.

So basically because of our unwillingness to look at a traditional reading of a very old story we missed out on how the creation account can be made to neatly fit in whatever evolutionary account you want. Time is no longer a factor one you understand Adam did die on the day of his fall from grace and was reborn to serve in this life as a regular man.

In the end it shows no matter what you believe about creation it is all a matter of faith anyway.. because you no more could produce evidence that your take must exclude mine, anymore than I must include all of evolution into my creation account.

All I see is a bunch of claims, Drich. And more claims to back up those claims. But never a bedrock. An insane idea supported by bible-verses. I see a vague attempt to either nulify what is proven and in failing that reconcile it by claiming your claims are on the same level. They are not. Yours are added claims without a bedrock. I don't need to produce evidence that 'my take' must exclude yours. You must provide evidence to credit what you add to the equation and otherwise, leave it at the door.

There is not a time line between the fall of Man and the end of creation. which make my little narrative possible. And as I said in the op this answers alot of different creation paradoxes. all of which are true and are certified

Please try to fix your quotes in the future. It's confusing to read and a pain to reply to.

So this is divine inspiration, huh? Are you a prophet now? Maybe you should consider proposing to have this canonized in the Bible.

The counter to the argument is Adam live 930 meaning from his creation by God the first time. which means then the garden is 6000 old if you count back from now through Christ and the genealogies found in the book of MT to Adam. but through my explanation Adam live 930 after the garden which means the fall of man took place 6000, not the birth of adam which makes the Garden/gen 2 a whole lot older.

Uhh... Okay?

they didn't have kids in the garden. they had them outside the garden when the bible says they did. think of the garden as a fish bowl where time stood still for billions of years. and the rest of the world evolves naturally like science says it does.

Okay... But why? Does God enjoy watching animals suffer? He didn't even try to create a world without death? Your explanation attempts to redeem the old myths of the Bible with science, but it doesn't really explain anything. I could say that dinosaurs used to drive cars, but the reason we haven't found evidence of cars was because the aliens came and stole all their stuff, and it'd be just as credible as everything you've said. Your explanations have no basis in fact, and it only brings more questions than it answers.

not allow to preach but if you look after day seven and God rests in Genesis 2 the chapter describes a second creation which is out of sequence of chapter 1. that is because it does not describe the creation of the heaven and earth but of what happened day 3 1/2 outside the garden, and God builds the garden and everything inside it sometime on the third day. so everything that happens in genesis from then on happens in the garden at it's own pace, while the rest of the world is left to evolve on it's own

I guess God just likes to fuck with us. "Man. Six thousand years from now, people are going to be finding fossils millions of years old and using it as evidence against the Bible. And Christians will continue to believe in a six thousand year old Earth and look like complete idiots to everyone else. This is going to be hilarious."

Also, just so you know, Jews do not see the first two chapters as two separate creations. The second just gives more focus to the part where God made humans.

no souls right, because God gave Adam "the breath of life which translates 'living soul' the 6th day man was just man made in the image of God. we simply assume his name is adam after the man made in the garden, but nothing in gen 1 or 2 says they are the same man.

Imagine having a wife who was fully human, but had no soul. No matter how much you loved her, you'd know she was just an empty vessel. You'd know that after you both were dead, you would never meet her on the other side. Would you be fine with that?

Actually, much of the Bible treats women like they have no souls anyway, so...

you mean monkey man or evolved man.. as before nothing says this man made in God's image was the Adam God gave a soul.

So then the humans who evolved were made in God's image, but had no soul. Most people try to justify the "God's image" thing by reinterpreting it to mean something symbolic, but I guess God really does look like a man.

genetic stock for the sons and daughters of adam to breed with so that they would fill the world, and eventually heaven with saved souls.

Why just...you know...create more than two human beings to begin with instead of using this convoluted plan of creating just two, leaving them in the Garden of Eden for millions of years, and then having more humans evolve, and then finally allowing Adam and Eve to have children? Also, you're telling me that Adam and Eve waited for hundreds of millions of years before having children? I know you're trying to avoid the problem of incest, but if you expect me to believe that Adam--the guy who couldn't resist the fruit of a single tree in an entire forest of fruit-filled trees--waited hundreds of millions of years to stick his thing in Eve... No. Just no.

what happens in the garden stayed in the garden. the rest of the world evolved naturally.

Wait a minute. The Bible says that Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden after they sinned. If the land outside of the garden was already full of death, then the only land left for God to curse after the Fall was the Garden of Eden. So God cursed the garden and then said, "Now you can't enter the garden which is the same as all the land now anyway?"

holy crap dude. God made light on day one what the friggen problem is? can you not phathom light with out the sun? seriously never turned on a light bulb? do you think if we can rig a light bulb God (who idk is described of being made of light/the substance made on day one with out the SUN) couldn't figure out how to illuminate the earth on a cloudy day? Maybe this explains how our oldest species of plants grow far better in different light other than natural sun light.

You're joking, right? You have to be fucking kidding me. This is some Grade A troll shit right here. You're pulling all this shit out of your ass, and then acting like I'm the one being ridiculous? Besides, you didn't even answer the fucking question you fucking idiot. Science says that the stars existed WAY before the Earth. I don't care about God's cosmic lightbulb. The order of events in the creation story is fucked up. Even if you said that the light on the first day was the Big Bang, it would have been a much smarter response than the one you're giving. You're telling me that before God created the stars in the galaxy, he created the Earth and filled it with vegetation. Where did those plants get their necessary sunlight for photosynthesis? Oh, wait. I forgot.

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-OB4zq9_qpcU/Uvm4Zc8cjWI/AAAAAAAAAjA/cc91qKpvsrk/s1600/magic+god+darkmatter2525,+smaller+-compressed.png)

The entire point of this bullshit you made up was to make it compatible with science. And when I point out when it still doesn't work with scientific understanding, you start pulling out God magic. Plants were not the first living things on earth. Microscopic organisms were. Life began in the water, not as vegetation. Eventually, plants did evolve, and they transformed the atmosphere of the planet, filling it with oxygen, allowing complex life to emerge. Your story does not fit in with this at all.

All you need do to resolve all of this is ask one question. Does the ancient hebrew have a modern understanding of life? The answe is no. so when you see specific creatures know the bible is not talking about specific geneus and species. it can't as those classification and names had not been invented yet. So the translators work backwards into a more simplistic zoological understanding. Ever heard the "bird bat debate?" that is some obscure verse God calls a bat a bird of the air?

(http://cdn.smosh.com/sites/default/files/ftpuploads/bloguploads/laughing-gifs-jonah-jameson.gif)

So let me get this straight. The Bible, which was divinely inspired, was limited by the knowledge of the humans who wrote it? God couldn't, you know, beam the information into their heads like he allegedly did when he gave you your vision? He couldn't give humanity an account so accurate that it could only be explained by divine inspiration?

and if every day was just a single day? and God simply seeded those species on those days?

That even exlains why He made the garden on day 3 1/2 (couldn't wait to see what was going to be what 100 billion years later.) maybe the garden was a porthole where he could see the future and what each seed would do who knows.

Drich if you go around telling people that god told you about creation in a dream, people are gonna think you're crazy. Can you discern the difference between a good argument and getting people to turn you off?

I found a white supremacist on yutube and watched a few of his videos. Maybe y'all should go check it out at truthfromgod.com. This guy says that ADAM mean ruddy; showing blood in the skin, and the only race that can show blood in the skin is white people. So earth has these ape-people from evolution and white people that were created 6,000 years ago. god only cared about his own children (white people) and the promises of the Bible only apply to them. Jesus was a white boy. The people who claim to be Jews now are imposters. Maybe what Drich says will make more sense after you watch a few of Dewey's videos ;-)

I have to say that the ideology of Dewey Tucker and Drich could turn religion on its head. Neither offers an explanation of how there could be both men that are evolved and men that are created on earth. Uhh basic question - how does species ape-man have kids with species god-man? Even if they get juiced up lookin at each other. Shouldn't there be no kids or sterile kids?

On the other hand if we are really on a planet with ape-men and god-men together I guess god cares about some of us and some of us are just f'cked.

I both love and hate reading the crazy posts of racists.  On the one hand, it shows how utterly ignorant they are about how skin color differences were caused by sun-exposure.  On the other, it shows how some people can get through the school system with such utter stupidity at their core.

I would like to see a final high school exam that asked basic questions of science, nature, and logic.  They wouldn't have to be difficult questions.  Just stuff like the age of the universe, age of Earth, simple human evolution, basic arithmetic, write a simple paragraph of 3 sensible sentences, etc. 

You fail, no high school degree.  Try a year again.  Make that worth "something" .

How could Adam have lived 930 years, after God told him that he'd die "in the day" that he ate the forbidden fruit? Apparently, God lied.

God is a liar. It was the serpent who told Adam and Eve that when they eat of the fruit, they will become like God, understanding the difference between good and evil. Despite having created the tree for some reason, God did not want Adam and Eve to understand good and evil, and made no mention that eating the fruit would grant them that kind of understanding.

I have waking dreams to, or vivid dreams, or rarely ... visions (but not hallucinations).  But I don't base my religion on them.  As Patanjali says in the Yoga Sutras ... siddhi (supernatural works) are a distraction, not the goal.

Neither do I, however if and when they do jive with scripture and I get an insight that counteracts what is currently driving people away from God in droves, and it does not conflict with the bible. I do feel I can use that insight to give those who want to believe both a way to do it even if it is not sanctioned doctrine.

Noth of this is a matter of salvation, but you've Got to believe in God if you are to be saved, and you have to believe in science as it is propagandized as the same science that makes computers works says your daddy was a fancy monkey. (not really but you get the gist)

Now for those who want the fashionable monkey daddy they can have it with a literal 7 day creation, without changing a freaking thing in the bible, just have to remove the time line of day seven of creation and the fall of man. The bible does not ascribe a time line, so then why should we assume day 8 a&E were exiled from the garden? why not 100 billion years like evolution says?

Take the time line away and you can have your cake and eat it too... all from a 'day dream'

Uhh... Okay?

Okay... But why? Does God enjoy watching animals suffer? He didn't even try to create a world without death?
what was the GARDEN OF EDEN? you: it was a sactuary without death. butI don't get it.. how is the world not the garden? Because the garden was set aside on day three read genesis 2!!! everything that happens in genesis 2 happened on day 3 of creation apart from creation!!

Quote
Your explanation attempts to redeem the old myths of the Bible with science, but it doesn't really explain anything.
not meant to explain. it was meant to assimilate.

Quote
I could say that dinosaurs used to drive cars, but the reason we haven't found evidence of cars was because the aliens came and stole all their stuff, and it'd be just as credible as everything you've said. Your explanations have no basis in fact, and it only brings more questions than it answers.
only if your a moron. both creation narritives remain in tact. My addition changes neither in any way. All I do is remove the unbiblical time line placed on the garden narritive. then I point out the garden was seperate than the rest of the world. via genesis 2.

that's it.. what the big problem? besides you can refute the garden narritive by using YEC time line? nothing else has changed!!!

Quote
I guess God just likes to fuck with us. "Man. Six thousand years from now, people are going to be finding fossils millions of years old and using it as evidence against the Bible. And Christians will continue to believe in a six thousand year old Earth and look like complete idiots to everyone else. This is going to be hilarious."
lord willing we will see.
Quote
Also, just so you know, Jews do not see the first two chapters as two separate creations. The second just gives more focus to the part where God made humans.
they can't always be right. I can walk you though genesis1 and 2 if you ask/lest I be preaching.
Quote
Imagine having a wife who was fully human, but had no soul. No matter how much you loved her, you'd know she was just an empty vessel. You'd know that after you both were dead, you would never meet her on the other side. Would you be fine with that?
what is a soul what is our spirit? Soul is our celestial consciousness, and spirit is our physical one. Atheist tend to be more spirit aware while theist seek more understanding on a celestial level.

So then what would be the difference if I married a woman who was an atheist and one born without a soul? ultimate nothing in this relam in this life?

But that is not something we have to worry about. why? think back to a bottle neck in history where only people with soul survived..
Quote
Actually, much of the Bible treats women like they have no souls anyway, so...
there were souless men in the monkey man crowd as well.

Quote
So then the humans who evolved were made in God's image, but had no soul. Most people try to justify the "God's image" thing by reinterpreting it to mean something symbolic, but I guess God really does look like a man.
look like or act like..

Quote
Why just...you know...create more than two human beings to begin with instead of using this convoluted plan of creating just two, leaving them in the Garden of Eden for millions of years, and then having more humans evolve, and then finally allowing Adam and Eve to have children?
isn't that what God did through evolution? but rather than a hand ful or million handhuned indivisuals he created a mechnism (evolution) that hand crafter people places and things to suit specific regions and enviroments, that if left alone could be used to drive an engine that would literally fill a planet...

But to directly answer your question, God does not typically do 'small things' when bigger things are needed.

Quote
Also, you're telling me that Adam and Eve waited for hundreds of millions of years before having children? I know you're trying to avoid the problem of incest, but if you expect me to believe that Adam--the guy who couldn't resist the fruit of a single tree in an entire forest of fruit-filled trees--waited hundreds of millions of years to stick his thing in Eve... No. Just no.
It is estimated that the garden is 2/3 the size of north america... Now try to imagine 1 1000 year life probably get board with your first mud hut. then 10 thousand then a million years then two then ten the 100 million years then a billion then 18 billion then the next number science will come up with to make evolution work... now even with a living space 2/3 the size of north america one is bound to get board. you will have seen everything 100 time and done everything to do twice, except the one thing that remains a mystery... ever wonder why eve and adam were so close to the tree? Because it was the only mystry left after 18 billion years.

Remember it was not till the ate from three of knoweledge that they saw each other as naked, which is why they made cloths. kinda hard to do the hokey pokey if nether of you see each other as sexual beings.
Quote
Wait a minute. The Bible says that Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden after they sinned. If the land outside of the garden was already full of death, then the only land left for God to curse after the Fall was the Garden of Eden. So God cursed the garden and then said, "Now you can't enter the garden which is the same as all the land now anyway?"
more or less yes... which is why there is a big stinking desert sitting on top of the garden now,

Quote
You're joking, right? You have to be fucking kidding me. This is some Grade A troll shit right here. You're pulling all this shit out of your ass, and then acting like I'm the one being ridiculous? Besides, you didn't even answer the fucking question you fucking idiot. Science says that the stars existed WAY before the Earth.
holy crap dude.. let's say stars did exist before the earth.. lets say they do now (hold your toungue or i will make you eat it) if now after 100 bizillion years or however long science currently says we are just now receiving the light from stars so far away we can see the orgins of the galaxy... would that start light have been avaible to the garden 18 or so BILLION years ago? maybe ask a question if you do not understand the complexity of the question.. don't just assume I am the one who has his facts confused.

That aside I will give you a simple answer. Just like revelation is a historical telling of the end times from a 1 centruy man singular perspective, so too is the telling of the beginning. It would seem God took moses on a ride and let him view out the seven days and creation of the garden and all that followed.

So how did the stars come after? they may not have celestially, but it may have appeared that way to moses from his specific perspective. (see the 1st paragraph for possible obstructions/the limit on the speed of light and how far the stars were from earth that he could indeed see.)

Quote
I don't care about God's cosmic lightbulb. The order of events in the creation story is fucked up.
Actually they are F-ing genius. the fact that the stars came late should proove (to a wisman) that the creation narritive was witnessed, because who else that long ago would have considered the speed of light to be a midigating factor between creation of the starts and when it's light would be viewable from earth!

Quote
Even if you said that the light on the first day was the Big Bang, it would have been a much smarter response than the one you're giving. You're telling me that before God created the stars in the galaxy, he created the Earth and filled it with vegetation. Where did those plants get their necessary sunlight for photosynthesis? Oh, wait. I forgot.
Light moron, goes 1000 times beyond the visible light you are arguing for. On Day one God created the light spectrum ALL OF IT. Alpha beta gamma, x rays all of it some saylight is at the heart of time itself not just light and dark sport.

The entire point of this bullshit you made up was to make it compatible with science. And when I point out when it still doesn't work with scientific understanding, you start pulling out God magic. Plants were not the first living things on earth. Microscopic organisms were.

Life began in the water, not as vegetation
and algae is... that's right vegitation. which is water born

Eventually, plants did evolve, and they transformed the atmosphere of the planet, filling it with oxygen, allowing complex life to emerge. Your story does not fit in with this at all.
you are a friggen moron that does not even know his own side of the creation narrative. Alage is responsible for terriforming not more complex plants.

So let me get this straight. The Bible, which was divinely inspired, was limited by the knowledge of the humans who wrote it? God couldn't, you know, beam the information into their heads like he allegedly did when he gave you your vision? He couldn't give humanity an account so accurate that it could only be explained by divine inspiration?

So genius, you think it best for God to beam in scientific information you would expect to see into the heads of moses or John or anyone given to a vision... Now what if your version of science is not correct? what if what God beams into the heads of his prophet is not proven to be correct till idk AFTER the second comming? so then who is better served or rather who/what generation does God need to be speaking with?

Seriously think about it 'smart guy' if God speaks to those who are left after the rapture (because those dumb asses left in science finall fig things out correctly) are the only one's who can confirm what God said through moses or John is right... What happens to the billion upon billions of sould who can not confirm what the post rapture generation can confirm???

How smart is that?

How about lets look at the way it is. God talks to the least evolved in such a way as to give enough clues for us to literally find and speak to Him and have him confirm all is true to us on a specific and personal level?

IDK I kinda like how God works now so every generation has a chance at a relationship and salvation rather than your horse crap way of saving the post rapture morons who triggered the end of the world anyway.

Drich if you go around telling people that god told you about creation in a dream, people are gonna think you're crazy. Can you discern the difference between a good argument and getting people to turn you off?
Well one I simply said this came to me in a waking dream, which basically meant in a day dream. That said this little truth that came to me has deep and profound potential meaning, in that because there is no time line between creation and the fall. all of evolution can fit in that void of creation.

That said, so what if God gave me this waking dream??? This/stuff like this builds on the 'proof' you all claim to want to see. What I am telling you guys is God is alive and very active with His believers! Answering my prayer with a waking dream is just but one of the ways God communicates.

Think about it this 'mountain' of a problem for creationists, that has plagues us for generations is cast into the sea, by a simple day dream. Where else could a day dream like this come from, and or why hasn't it come before?

I found a white supremacist on yutube and watched a few of his videos. Maybe y'all should go check it out at truthfromgod.com. This guy says that ADAM mean ruddy; showing blood in the skin, and the only race that can show blood in the skin is white people. So earth has these ape-people from evolution and white people that were created 6,000 years ago. god only cared about his own children (white people) and the promises of the Bible only apply to them. Jesus was a white boy. The people who claim to be Jews now are imposters. Maybe what Drich says will make more sense after you watch a few of Dewey's videos ;-)
Do you not see a difference between 'my vision' and this white supremesist? I changed nothing in the evolutionary account nor have I changed anything written in the bible. All I ask anyne to do is remove the artifical time line placed between the end of creation (the 7th day) and the Fall of man (most poeple assume that happened on day 8 or 9.) I say why not have it happen 18 billion years ago? nothing in the scripture keeps that from happening, matter of fact the oppsite is true in that the elements are specifically mention in the garden to allow adam to have lived that long.

Quote
I have to say that the ideology of Dewey Tucker and Drich could turn religion on its head. Neither offers an explanation of how there could be both men that are evolved and men that are created on earth. Uhh basic question - how does species ape-man have kids with species god-man? Even if they get juiced up lookin at each other. Shouldn't there be no kids or sterile kids?
lets start over real simple. gen 2 is the garden account. meaning everything in gen 2 happens on day 3. In gen 2 God creates the first man adam and breaths a soul into him. from adam produces eve. So adam and the garden are complete repersentations of what the world looked like 6000 or so years ago. (because He knew when the fall of man would take place) So then Adam in his original form would genetically represent the progress of naturally evolved homo sapeian. So geneticall Adam and man made on the 6th day as per genesis 1 are genetically identical. however the bible never says God breathed a soul into day 6 man. or evolved man.

So again adam and the garden were made on day 3 according to genesis 2 and it was completed before the rest of the world. The garden was a future repsentation of what the evolved world would look like about 6000 years ago 9which is how long man with a soul has been outside the garden.

Quote
On the other hand if we are really on a planet with ape-men and god-men together I guess god cares about some of us and some of us are just f'cked.
Hence the floods, where only men with souls moved on.

He did die that day.

When they became aware of it they were expected to keep God's commands concerning sin.

I work in a science based field and this science is what modern life is based on. not guess and unvalidatble theory, but real science we can bank on.

Why? because the bible does not endorse or claim a time period between the end of creation and the fall of man. matter of fact there is a chaptorial break between the end of creation and the fall of man. What I am simply saying is 1 day or 18 billion years could have happened between chapter 2 and chapter 3.

For you see if you read and or understood what it was I am saying is that you can plug any verion of evolution or anything like that in the literal seven day creation account without changing a word of the bible nor will you have to change a word of evolution for both to work at the same time.

God simply did not hold them accountible to anything sinful or that could be considered sinful because they knew nothing of sin. When they became aware of it they were expected to keep God's commands concerning sin.

You're pulling this explanation out of your anus. The reason for why God was upset was given within the same story. It was not because of sin. Sin was never even mentioned. The reason God decided to remove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden was because he was afraid that if they ate the Fruit of the Tree of Life, they would become immortal and have taken another step toward becoming gods. God removed them from the garden because he was afraid that if he didn't, he and the other gods wouldn't be able to control them any more.

Genesis 3:22 - "And the Lord God said, 'The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.'"

It is only through the reinterpretations that later books brought to this story that the idea that God separated himself from man because of sin was even introduced.

The Sumerians said that we were created by the Annunaki to dig up gold... that storyline makes a little more sense than the one you are sharing

Maybe Drich should slow down a little bit and what you are trying to say will make more sense. Its obvious from how many mispelled words in your post that you are rushing to get it all our.

I will agree with you on this one point, because I thought of it myself a long time ago. The Bible doesn't specifically tell us the age of the earth, that is a guess made by theologists. Yes there can be a space of millions of years between the creation and the fall (no reason to measure time before Adam sinned)

Its possible but I don't have any proof that actually happened and neither do you. Certainly the division of chapter and verse can't be used to prove anything. Chapters were added in English. They weren't part of the original language.

Your idea has one obvious flaw. You said that Adam was the ancestor of all the stupid ape-men of evolution and he didnt have kids until 6,000 years ago so that he could become more intelligent? If it was possible for someone to live for millions of years his DNA would stay the same. If he was a dumb-ass a million years ago his children would still be dumbasses today

You're making a really good argument against god being omniscient. If he had to waste millions of
years to get man the way he wanted...

I will agree with you on this one point, because I thought of it myself a long time ago. The Bible doesn't specifically tell us the age of the earth, that is a guess made by theologists. Yes there can be a space of millions of years between the creation and the fall (no reason to measure time before Adam sinned)

Well, in the passage I quoted in my last post, it seems heavily implied that Adam and Eve never ate from the Tree of Life, which would have made them "live forever." From what the story tells us, it seems the very first time Adam got hungry, he ate the one fruit God told him not to instead of the fruit of Tree of Life which was available and not forbidden. That likely didn't take the time span of millions of years to happen.

There's something else I just realized too. If God was concerned about Adam becoming immortal, that heavily implies that he wasn't immortal to begin with. So not only did God lie about the forbidden fruit causing him to die on the same day it was consumed, but Adam was probably going to die eventually anyway. The fruit didn't even curse him with mortality. It had no negative consequences other than the realization of nakedness, and causing God to get nervous.

You're pulling this explanation out of your anus.
what are you a catholic priest? have you never read the bible? after salvation the whole of the New Testament is about being judged to the measure of what it is you understand. romans 5 gives a specific overview concerning Adam and the nature of sin.

Quote
The reason for why God was upset was given within the same story. It was not because of sin. Sin was never even mentioned. The reason God decided to remove Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden was because he was afraid that if they ate the Fruit of the Tree of Life, they would become immortal and have taken another step toward becoming gods. God removed them from the garden because he was afraid that if he didn't, he and the other gods wouldn't be able to control them any more.
nice try but no.
verse 20 tells us why Adam and Eve were to leave. In that they were going to have a bunch of kids. Can you imagine how destructive it would be to have a pack of immortal siblings trying to kill each other.

Quote
It is only through the reinterpretations that later books brought to this story that the idea that God separated himself from man because of sin was even introduced.

How many years did it take after Genesis being written for the New Testament to come around and reinterpret it? I don't give a fuck. It contradicts what the original source says. Christians didn't take Judaism and add to it; they practically threw Judaism into the trash and made up their own shit.

that is really the core of what I've said over and over. Theologists simply counted back the generations back to the first born of Adam and that plus adam's 930 on earth simply indicate the exit date of the garden. The persumption has always been that the sin that cause the fall happened shortly after creation was completed. but again nothing in the bible says that. the bible does however say per gen 2 that the garden was made separate from the rest of the world and that Adam was made on day three while man outside the garden per gen 1 was day 6. So we know we have a picture of the world captured in the garden that reflected man's evolution upto 6000 years ago. which again was the time of the exodus of the garden. and we have in gen 1 man made outside the garden and in gen 2 man made inside the garden God called adam.

nope nope nope.

Adam was a man whom God personally made and breathed into Him a soul per genesis2 and placed him in the garden of eden

Then Man made outside the garden was made in God's image. meaning not stupid, but Homo sapeians. Nothing stupid about them as they built the cities of nod where Cain ran off too. they per gen 1 we placed in the world to develop apart from Adam. The garden was a bubble made on day 3 sometime between the other things God made on day three.

Did he have to?? where does it say that? just because you would do something differently does not mean God has to. I think his power was displayed well in the creation of the garden and everything in it between his day three tasks, per gen 2

Besides that. know the God of the bible does not claim to be an omni max God. His description of Himself says He is the alpha and omega the beginning and endof all things. which means he has the power and authority to do whatever he likes and is not bound to the rule that an omni max God would be.

What is peer reviewed science? it is majority consensus of what the 'experts' in a given field wants it to be.

Wow, that's about as complete a misunderstanding of the scientific process as is possible to have.

It's not about who can put together a majority consensus.  It's about who's got the confirmable data and a falsifiable hypothesis to explain it that has not (yet) been falsified.  You think the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe was decided by majority vote?  There was considerable resistance to the idea because it was contrary to the then-accepted explanation of the way the universe is.  And then the data got researched and confirmed.  Now it's the accepted idea -- not because a majority of astrophysicists "voted" for it so to speak, but because the data supports it.  Scientists don't line up behind something just because everyone else does.

And if you want to talk about whores to money (I didn't bring it up, but thanks for the non sequitur, it's another point I can use), are you genuinely unfamiliar with Vatican City?  Have you really never heard of Rick Warren, PTL, Creflo Dollar, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, etc., etc., etc.?

That likely didn't take the time span of millions of years to happen.
lol... no

Genesis2:2 The woman answered the snake, “No, we can eat fruit from the trees in the garden. 3 But there is one tree we must not eat from. God told us, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden. You must not even touch that tree, or you will die.’”

This would have included the tree of life. (meaning what they could eat from.) Take note they could eat from any tree no where in the bible does it say this was the first time adam got hungry.
So then the question would be why is this forbidden fruit so tempting? it wouldn't be if the Garden was full of vast unknown edibles and mysteries!
unless 18 billion years go by and even in a place as vast as 2/3 of north america and you had to see it all on foot, youve seen everything, ate everything and now you are bored. Which would explain eve's proxcimity to the forbidden fruit to begin with.. as it was the only thing left in all of the garden that was till a mystery still interesting!


Quote
There's something else I just realized too. If God was concerned about Adam becoming immortal, that heavily implies that he wasn't immortal to begin with.
Unless like he said He died when he ate the fruit. meaning Adam the immortal died and God gave him this life "chay" as per the OP. Adam lived a completely different existence in the beginning with God ate the forbidden fruit and died, and God did not want Him to be immortal again so He kicked him from the garden.

Quote
So not only did God lie about the forbidden fruit causing him to die on the same day it was consumed, but Adam was probably going to die eventually anyway. The fruit didn't even curse him with mortality. It had no negative consequences other than the realization of nakedness, and causing God to get nervous.

Do you see how you have to change the bible's account to make your telling of the fall work? just because you want to insist that adam is mortal in the garden you have to make God a liar, you have to claim adam was slated to die in the garden even if he has not sin (which the bible never makes mention of) and the tree of knowledge was not the first sin..

All of those statement are false the bible never made those claims or in the case of sin makes the opposite claim, but that doesn't matter to you does it?

It does not matter that in my telling everying for one in the telling of the genesis orgins all the so call paradoxes or 'lies' go away.

For one if Adam is indeed immortal then he dies that very day as an immortal when he eats the fruit.
now we do not have to make the claim you did that adam was slated to die in the garden.
and we can jive with gen3 when eve said they were permitted to eat from the tree of life.

That's not always true is it. let's look at global cooling, I mean global warming, I mean globa climbate change. This 25 year old consensus in places literally contradicts 500 years of traditional science discovery and recorded temperature cycles. more over it out right contradicts principles in thermal dynamics that can not be reconciled with the 'science' being used. In short carbon in the atmosphere is one of several atoms that can "unpack" or release heat from a "sun ray" However there is a point of saturation where more carbon doesn't mean more heat is created in the same beam of sunlight. Remember/google it Carbon effectively only "unpacks" the available heat it can not produce more heat. The only thing that can proudce more heat in a ray of sunlight is the sun. meaning only the sun can put in more sunligh for the carbon atoms to unpack..

So here's the thing 500 years of science concerning global climate change has been telling us it is solar output that determines the earth median tempature Not green house gas.

So if you were right and your neive understanding of science was not driven by pop culture then we would still be adhearing to the 500 year old stuff they taught me when i was in school. but they don't do they? that must mean science is a whore selling it's legitmacy to whatever popular peer review wants it to say.

Holy crap dude. why argue a point you haven't taken the time to understand? why not ask questions first?

Genesis 1:1-Gen 2:3 should all be in one chapter as this describes the 7 days of creation. This is 7 day of global creation (not including the garden) how do I know? because Genesis 2:4 This is the story about the creation of the sky and the earth. This is what happened when the Lord God made the earth and the sky. 5 This was before there were plants on the earth. Nothing was growing in the fields because the Lord God had not yet made it rain on the earth, and there was no one to care for the plants.

So basically between verse 10 and verse 11 all of chapter 2 happens. what happens in chapter 2 read it yourself:
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+2&version=ERV

but basically Adam was created, the garden, and eve. all between verse 10 and 11 of day 3.  That means the garden and everyone in it was seperate from the rest of creation. that includes "man and woman" created on day 6. I am saying day 6 man was evolved man or monkey man. no different than Adam, it just adam was a homo sapeian first. and it took however long you guys said it did for man outside the garden created on day 6 to catch up to day 3 adam.

Holy crap dude, can't you read?  You believe you come up with any old interpretation you want.  And I guess you can.  But it makes no sense.  But then, your precious bible makes no sense, either.  Your interpretations are as vapid and stupid as your god and your book.  You call this stupid, empty shit 'understanding'.  Yeah, I understand you are crazier than the fucking proverbial loon.  But you are a theist, so that fits. 

Yeah, I've read the bible from cover to cover.  And in the first and second chapters of the very beginning of this fiction, it makes it clear this is a fiction that is at war with itself.  You can prove just about anything you want--and you prove that--simply by making the words say what you want them to say.  Clearly, Chpt. 1 is about 'them' (the gods I guess) creating humans (clearly men and women were created at the same time and equal) and 'them' pronounced it good.  Chpt 2 is about the creation of man--adam--who was lonely (funny how god could not figure that out in advance) and so god created eve from adam's rib (why he would need a rib when he did not need one with adam is puzzling) and then the garden.  Two totally different creation myths.  Neither of which makes much sense and there is not way to make them fit as a single unit or myth; except in the muddled mind of theists like you.  But I have to hand it to you--your interpretation is unique; and very stupid--which is not unique for theists.  God you are stupid--but you seem to be enjoying it so have at it.

peer review science: when a scientist makes a claim other scientists will check the work for mistakes. The scientist better be right because a bogus claim could mean the end of that scientist's career. ...what does that have to do with a scientist sucking up for funding?

let's look at global cooling, I mean global warming, I mean globa climbate change. This 25 year old consensus in places literally contradicts 500 years of traditional science discovery and recorded temperature cycles. more over it out right contradicts principles in thermal dynamics that can not be reconciled with the 'science' being used. In short carbon in the atmosphere is one of several atoms that can "unpack" or release heat from a "sun ray" However there is a point of saturation where more carbon doesn't mean more heat is created in the same beam of sunlight. Remember/google it Carbon effectively only "unpacks" the available heat it can not produce more heat. The only thing that can proudce more heat in a ray of sunlight is the sun. meaning only the sun can put in more sunligh for the carbon atoms to unpack..

So here's the thing 500 years of science concerning global climate change has been telling us it is solar output that determines the earth median tempature Not green house gas.

Apparently nobody explained global warming to you.... The short version is that normally light from the sun comes in the atmosphere and bounces off the earth back into space. Pollution in the air gives light a place to bounce back to earth for a second, third, or fourth time. This increases UV exposure increasing sunburn and skin cancer. As for carbon dioxide, light comes in at a frequency where carbon dioxide is transparent. When it hits the earth some energy is absorbed that changes the frequency of the light to a frequency where carbon dioxide is opaque. So instead of the light-energy going back into space it gets trapped in the air

What Adam and Eve.  The first chapter of genesis tells us:
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

I don't see an Adam or Eve there.  And who is this 'them'???
AGAIN!

Chapter one is evolved man outside of the garden.

Chapter two speaks of adam and eve created on day 4 and placed in the garden...

Why is this so difficult?

Chapter 1 tell of the sevn day creation (upto gen 2:3)

Then Gen 2:4 forward talks about just what happened on day three which besides what is mentioned in chapter one The garden is created and everything in it. which means Adam and Eve which were Day three (God breathed a living soul into them) verse day 6 made in the image of God humans.

No.  It isn't.


You don't even understand what it is you're trying to smoosh together from either a theological point of view or a scientific one.   The scientific concepts that you're trying to use have an actual basis in fact and reality.  And they directly contradict what is said in Genesis no matter how you try and interpret it.
That's not true...

Once you understand what i have said in the OP Everything science will ever have to say about creation will neatly fit inside the creation account found in genesis.

Holy crap dude, can't you read?  You believe you come up with any old interpretation you want.  And I guess you can.  But it makes no sense.  But then, your precious bible makes no sense, either.  Your interpretations are as vapid and stupid as your god and your book.  You call this stupid, empty shit 'understanding'.  Yeah, I understand you are crazier than the fucking proverbial loon.  But you are a theist, so that fits. 

Yeah, I've read the bible from cover to cover.
goes to show what you know, but I'll allow it for the sake of discussion.

 
Quote
And in the first and second chapters of the very beginning of this fiction, it makes it clear this is a fiction that is at war with itself.
the only thing made clear is you rely heavily if not completely upon commentary for your biblical discernment.

The first and second chapters could never be more clear. Chapter one is a telling of the 7 days of creation

Chapter 2
Quote
:4 This is the story about the creation of the sky and the earth. This is what happened when the Lord God made the earth and the sky.
So that would be according to gen 1 DAY 3!

Quote
5 This was before there were plants on the earth. Nothing was growing in the fields because the Lord God had not yet made it rain on the earth, and there was no one to care for the plants.
so the first part of day three right after God seperated land from water but before there was plants...

That means EVERYTHING in Gene 2 happened on day three starting at the point where God made dry land but before plants were called fourth, and places it all in the garden. Which shows the Garden is seperate from the rest of the 7 day creation.

Now Ask a frigging question if you do not understand all of that.
Quote
You can prove just about anything you want--and you prove that--simply by making the words say what you want them to say.

Actually I can and I did through providing context and context found in every version of Genesis 2. Remember if we are having an avengers dicussion then it is from the marvel universe we must source 'proof' You can't just willy nilly float back and fourth when ever you start to loose footing in your discussion.

Quote
Clearly, Chpt. 1 is about 'them' (the gods I guess) creating humans (clearly men and women were created at the same time and equal) and 'them' pronounced it good.  Chpt 2 is about the creation of man--adam--who was lonely (funny how god could not figure that out in advance) and so god created eve from adam's rib (why he would need a rib when he did not need one with adam is puzzling) and then the garden.  Two totally different creation myths.


Nope. one creation story found in Gen 1-Gen2:3 in that block of scripture you find your 7 days of creation. from 2:4 forward you have the garden account that all happened on day 3.

Quote
Neither of which makes much sense and there is not way to make them fit as a single unit or myth; except in the muddled mind of theists like you.
that is because you are trying to filter what it is I am saying through the B/S commentaries you think have the best shot at being true. The problem? your 'theologiests" in real life who compile such commentaries are little more than disenfranchised seminary want-to-bes. The are so wrong because they do not look at the context to resolve what they do not understand they cast off common sense and look for anyother reason to 'explain' why they don't understand something. like the SAB's "two creation account explaination. when all you gotta do is read what is on page and it tells you itself that All of chapter two from 2:4 forward happens on just day three and is contained only in the Garden. It is not another creation account.

Quote
But I have to hand it to you--your interpretation is unique; and very stupid--which is not unique for theists.  God you are stupid--but you seem to be enjoying it so have at it.
so what happens when you finally figure out that it is not I who is in error but your commentators???

Lets do this another way what does Genesis 4-5 mean?
4 This is the story about the creation of the sky and the earth. This is what happened when the Lord God made the earth and the sky. 5 This was before there were plants on the earth. Nothing was growing in the fields because the Lord God had not yet made it rain on the earth, and there was no one to care for the plants...

These two verses are key to understanding the whole and energetically correct meaning of Genesis chapter 2 here's a hint I've spelled it out like a dozen times already

AGAIN!!  Why is this so difficult?  Because your beliefs are unique to you.  And those unique beliefs go against what is actually written.  Because your beliefs follow no logic.  But, then the bible is fiction and your god is fiction, so I guess you can come up with any old belief and it will not be any more stupid, banal or idiotic than any other belief based upon fiction.

Seriously??? are you so hung up on your commentaries you can not read what is on page and think for your self? what is it? it is too obvious? does my reading make your trusted sources look too dumb? Can it be as simple as taking the words on page at face value? why didn't your 'smarties" catch any of this?

Because God hides himself from the foolishness of man's "higher learning" Again read what is on page, the fact that day seven has been made to be apart of Genesis 2 makes you see that even the guys denoting book chapter and verse got this one wrong. They were making the narrative of the passage fit the popular reading of the day rather than follow the chronological events written on page.



Genesis 1:1- Genesis 2:3 describes chronologically from day one to day seven how God built the "heavens and the Earth." Do you disagree with this?

then 2:4 should technically be Genesis 2:1. It's not because it does not support the traditional reading of Genesis 2. If genesis 2 started out:
 This is the story about the creation of the sky and the earth. This is what happened when the Lord God made the earth and the sky. (earth and sky was day 2)  This was before there were plants on the earth. (plants was day 3)  Nothing was growing in the fields because the Lord God had not yet made it rain on the earth, and there was no one to care for the plants. (So this means the following takes places after earth and sky/day 2 and even sea and ground/day3 but before the rain day three between verse 10 and 11)

That means everything after gen 2:5 happened in the time frame gen 2:4-5 describes. which if you read what is on page you will note this/gen2 is a garden only narrative that happens apart from the outside world. That means both adam and eve were created on the 3rd day and not the 6th, which puts an end to the bad commentative idea that (genesis 1 and 2 are at war with each other.) a simple contextual reading is all anyone ever needed to put that myth to bed.

Riddle me this sport... if your hero's are so wrong about how genesis 1 and 2 are compiled then what chance in hell do they have anything else right? What about the important stuff?

Not too bad for a 'waking dream huh?' it smashes all sorts of genesis paradoxes without even setting out to do so. it's like all of these paradoxes fall once a contextual reading replaces the old 'church's traditional reading.

You been talking about Genesis 1 and 2 all this time and never noticed the sky above the stars is supposed to be water?

Since you like to pick so much, I will submit to you according to the rules of English grammar the KJV says that the sons of god sleeping with earth women happened concurrently with the existence of giants. It does not say that is the cause of giants. Yes those giants were drowned in the flood, but what about the giants after the flood?

you know if the bible were writting in english you'd almost have a point, as it is you fail on just three points.
1 in the book of Job God is not calling angels his sons.
2 The sons of God's is simply the hebrew term for any celestial being inservice to God the word used in Hebrew is " ben " and it literally means angel as it relates to God.
3 the word Son in Hebrews 1 is the word huios which means of those in whom God has a covenant with.

So Job is right, and so too is the book of hebrews and no contradiction exists, because God did not call the people in Job 'sons' the writer of job did, and in Hebrews God has no covenant with the angels.

If you look at the Hebrew it says:
The original giants were nephilim a class of giant warrior angels/demons. (if you are jewish or catholic)
Then if you keep reading to verse 4 it says the off spring of the sons of God and the daughters of men were men of "mighty men of old." the word for old in the hebrew here mean immortal men. The Hebrew translation of mighty men also describes giants. So the hybrids were immortal giants. I like to think this is where Greeks get their stories and gods.

As I pointed out from the evidence at hand: ignorant and unpleasant.  And now I suppose I have to add lazy, on the basis of this evidence.  I mean, Genesis 1 and 2 isn't that much to read.  It's barely the length of a short story.

On the contary...

When Jesus spoke to the pharisees, and they were combative was he all turn the other cheek? when the disciples strongly disagreed or default to their prejudices? did Jesus shrink away? when the money changers went to far did he fraily ask them to leave??

Now what happened when the pharisees/Nicodemus approached Christ with respect did Christ blast Him for being a fool or blind guide? when the disciples came to him humble did he call them names or reprimand them for being without basic understanding? When those who wrong Jesus did so and sought forgiveness what did Jesus do?

Your one sided idea or version of Jesus is why yur faith failed to begin with. how foolish are you to think you can control or try and manipulate me with your failed theology. You are a fool and or a blind guide if you think you can wwjd me into doing what you think is right. Again your failed version of God failed you on all counts, so then why assume I am worshiping the meek only jesus you know?

Simply put, you are a liar. You do not know the babble at all. All you is make up new interpretations of established text. The babble means exactly what it says, not what you "think" it says. This is why religion is slowly dying. Your god is a piece of shit and so are many of "its" followers.

Genesis 1:1-2 - "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters."

There's no mention of God creating the waters, yet he's already floating over it.

1:6-8 - "And God said, 'Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.' So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault 'sky.' And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day."

The sky is water. Why not? It's blue. Rain comes from it. Makes sense.

1:9-10 - "And God said, 'Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.' And it was so. God called the dry ground 'land,' and the gathered waters he called 'seas.' And God saw that it was good."

So God took the waters that were already there, moved some of it up, made room for land on the bottom, and basically made a water and earth sandwich out of it. Don't worry. I'm sure science agrees with this plagiarized Pagan story.

then maybe this is not a story of the creation of the universe, but of the creation of the heavens and earth just like Genesis 1 says..

Bwahahaha.. Seriously? I'm sorry all of this mess because you are reading from gramatical text you are not familiar with? let's try the easy to read version.
6 Then God said, “Let there be a space[c] to separate the water into two parts!” 7 So God made the space and separated the water. Some of the water was above it, and some of the water was below it. 8 God named that space “sky.” There was evening, and then there was morning. This was the second day...

So what water is their is the sky? or are you say almighty 'science' says there is absolutly no h2o in the air???

here clerly shows that the water that covered everything was suspended, otherwise if liquid would it not automatically gather to one place? so then why assume the water above the 'sky' was liquid when the water on land was not?

So no.. what I read was God reduced the earths mass by culling off some water to space. what remains is still in atmosphere.

Think about it (i know it's hard for some of you to do so with out the aid of some greater atheist telling what to think, but if you think about it. God started off with a water (in one of three states) planet only culled off a good portion then solidifies the water planetside. some of it remains as vapor which may seem trivial but think about rain fall totals globally... that is hundreds of trillions of tons of water that simply falls from the sky...

So tell me how genesis account of day 2 is in error

On the contary...

When Jesus spoke to the pharisees, and they were combative was he all turn the other cheek? when the disciples strongly disagreed or default to their prejudices? did Jesus shrink away? when the money changers went to far did he fraily ask them to leave??

Now what happened when the pharisees/Nicodemus approached Christ with respect did Christ blast Him for being a fool or blind guide? when the disciples came to him humble did he call them names or reprimand them for being without basic understanding? When those who wrong Jesus did so and sought forgiveness what did Jesus do?

Your one sided idea or version of Jesus is why yur faith failed to begin with. how foolish are you to think you can control or try and manipulate me with your failed theology. You are a fool and or a blind guide if you think you can wwjd me into doing what you think is right. Again your failed version of God failed you on all counts, so then why assume I am worshiping the meek only jesus you know?

And this typical zian post underscores what all theists do--cherry pick.  The babble was quite cleverly assembled from a huge pile of writings to allow the leaders to pick and chose on every subject no matter which way they want to go.  Your fictional jesus can go to war--condemn war; be violent or not; beat plow shares into swords or sell for shirts.  Anything you want your Bugs Bunny to do he can do. 

you taut reading the bible for a single subject matter, which is the way the leaders of all ages want you to do.  If one reads it from start to finish, it is quite obvious that it can be made to say whatever that particular leader wants it to say.  It is ALL about power and money--nothing else.

It's because in Christianity our covenant is not tied to the law UNLESS you can't understand the freedom from the law you have been given. Christ freed us from the laws of 'morality' when he completed the law. this means we can tie ourselves down to the letter of the law or we can live free from it in so far as to not hurt our brothers who tie themselves to the law.

Typical.  Tout that you are following the commandments of jesus--yet at every opportunity it's I'll judge the fuck out of you, call you any demeaning names as I can think of; no turning the other cheek for me.  What that simply demonstrates is that you follow whatever you want and jesus and his commandments really mean little or nothing to you.  With every post you demonstrate that you think jesus is a fiction too.

Typical Abrahamics follow, or don't follow, the Jesus of their own dogma .. they don't actually read, know or understand the NT ... for some they follow synagogue/church/mosque dogma, or they invent their own.  Not that there aren't problems, if you read, know or understand the NT ... as an anthology of early Hellenistic Jewish polemic.

Again Smart guy Hundreds of trillions of tons cascade down from the shy every year!!! This is what was left. where did the rest go? Let me ask you this know anything about mars? did you know NASA says there was water on it? where did that water go? once Mar's magnetic field all but failed the solar winds pulled mar's atmosphere which dropped the atmospereic pressure which lowers the boiling point and caused the water to all but evaporate, unless trapped underground.

Now what happens to water when you raise it near or above earth's magnetic field? the same thing. solar wind remove the heavy excess what's left= trillion of tons of rain.

It's not saying that there is water in the sky, it says that water is the sky. Understand now, or would I have better luck explaining this to an infant?
which is above the protection of the magnetic field. @ zero atmosphere, say approx 2 microns of vacuum, water boils @ -90*F which mean the ocean above the earth would boil off before it could freeze/turn to vapor only to be carried away by solar winds.

How those teeth feel? the one's I just kicked in?

you might be in 'the nile' on what just happened, but google it.. the rain, mars facts, solar winds, what happened to the water on mars, before you speak.

The Torah we have was put together by Ezra, while Judah was a province of the Persian Empire.  While the Persians were religiously tolerant, they appointed ethnarcs to rule over selected theocratic populations, like Judah.  Ezra was the ethnarc appointed by the Shah of Persia.  Ezra was (per extra biblical material) inspired to write the entire Torah, dictated from a heavenly copy by an angel (sound familiar?) ... but in fact it is cobbed together by Ezra from various Judah and Israel materials prior to the Babylonian Exile.  Ezra's purpose was to give the first Zionists (the elite returning from Babylonian Exile) the power to lord it over the Am HaEretz .. the common people who were left in Judah by the Babylonians, who never went into exile.  We would call these Palestinians .. in modern circumstances .. when history repeated itself with the second Zionists.  The modern Zionists aren't independent either, they are there to pacify the locals for the Anglo-American Empire.  The other purpose of Ezra as to marginalize the mixed ethnic Samaritans in what used to be Israel.  The Israelites had suffered exile earlier and longer than the Judahites ... but they also had survivors who were the Jews in N Iraq and in Iran.  Most of the Judahite exiles in Babylon, stayed where they were at ... and formed the Jews in S Iraq and in Iran.  The Samaritans were mixed ethnicity ... but just barely.  Their Am HaEretz (common folk) were made to intermarry with other Semites from Syria, brought in by the Assyrians.

The Samaritans had their own Torah, similar to the Zionist Torah ... but they didn't have the other books that later became a part of rabbinic Judaism.  Ironically today, the surviving Samaritans are the most genuine Jews on the planet, in terms of actually following Torah (including sacrificing lambs at Passover).  Rabbinic Judaism, after 200 CE, went its own way, though not without dissenters.  One of the more recent dissenters, Baruch Spinoza, was part of the spark that created the Enlightenment after 1700 CE.

What confusing about it? unless you are looking for strict rules and laws like everyother religion.

Rather once you understand there are only two rules to Christianity the rest can make sense.

1) Love your lord God with all of your being.
(which is why the bible is set up the way it is ad why there are so many different denominations.)

2) Love your neighbor as yourself. All of the law is now contained within these two commandments.

We are given freedom and not a bunch of rules not to run wild but to worship God anyway we see fit. Remember the one law being to worship God with all of our being. What if I were musically inclined and could play every instrument but couldn't otherwise sit through a sermon without sleeping? If there was only one brand of christianity one church and music was just a tiny part of it, would/could I be worshping God with all of my being? No. So what is the answer? schism and break off into a group of like minded belivers.

Like wise what if my best worship was in study and debate could I be made to sit through a 90% musical worship service? would i be full filling God's greatest command? no. so again I have the freedom to break off this group and seek out a group of like minded believers!

What does this have to do with fabrics and homosexuals? The laws containing fabrics were consider y the jews to be social laws. meaning laws one had to abide by to live as an OT jew. these laws had absolutly nothing to do with morality. they were like our traffic laws or our laws concerning running a business in our society. Remember Israel was a theocrisy meaning it was a religious movement and a state/nation. many atheist douche bags can not/will not recognise that not all law concerning the OT jews had to do with morality. they only pertain to living in a OT jew society. so diet, fbrics, treatment of slaves all out the window as they one were not moral law and two did not require atonement from God. one was simply exiled from the OT jewish community.

Now the laws pertaining to homosexuality were considered moral law. these laws/the 10 commandments cross over to a degree because it is this law Jesus did not come to abolish or change, but offer atonement for.

That said being gay is a sin but not the unforgivable sin. it is a sin like another sexual sin and requires the same atonement.

The difference between OT judaism and NT christianity is that "the Law" recorded in the bible was subdivided into 3 aspects. Religion/religious cermony, Social law/what it meant to be and live as an OT jew. and the Moral law.

Now ask what happens when you break the social law... you were cast out of being a jewish citizen

Now ask what happens when you break a cermonial law, fined by the temple or  more than likly your efforts were deemed unworthy and were given twice the burden next year to over come. What happened when you failed at the religious law? your covenant with God was broken/could not cash in on exo 22. coud possible sold into slavery

SO ask what happens to those who break the moral law. their version of Hell fire and brimestone. This carries over. the other does not. why? because with every law there is punishment or recourse.

Now on religious or civil matters it does not matter because the only recourse the law provides is excommunication from OT judaism. Remember they lived under a theocracy where day to day was tied into religion. So to ignore the can't eat pig law was to break a social law. which again meant you were not considered a cleanjew/someone to mingle with. But So what, we aren't meant to be jews. We are Christian (it's this whole other religion with no theocratic mandates/laws)

Do you get it? cermonial and social laws go by the way side because they only have ramifications in social and cermonial settings which all are gone since OT judaism is not longer practiced.

What is left? the moral law the 10 commandments.

Why are these left because they represent s debt that can not be paid by man. This debt is paid with life.

So Jesus pays that debt (It is finished on the cross) now even this moral debt has been lifted, and the law complete. meaning there is nothing outstanding the law has to collect.

In short 'we' through Christ own nothing to the laws of Moses (the laws of ceremony and civil OT justice) and we own nothing to the law of God as Christ paid all debt and satisfied what was owed.

When Drich writes something, my eyes roll back so far, I can see my own brain.

Yes. It is quite different. One comes as a self-proclaimed expert who has yet to read the Bible. The other comes with knowledge. One arrogantly proclaims, "I know the truth!

When He claimed to be the son of God he broke the first command, when He healed a sick man on the sabbath He broke the traditional understand of the sabbath, When He said "stand up your sins are forgiven, to a Jew of that stature would know that only God can forgive sins, and if God crippled this man for sinning then it would take God to release Him. This to the pharrisees was also a trick/example of Jesus breaking the 1st commandment. He allowed his deciples to eat without going through the cermoinial hand washing, which was a very big deal to them..

 Then He fashioned a cord into a whip and beat the hell out of the money changers and ran them out of the temple (money changers would have had to been priest as they were handling 'clean animals.')

Granted He did not break the law of God, but He did break the ceremonial and social laws of the Jews. Which schism OT Judaism. You asked why I not a Jew if Jesus was citing Jewish text? It is for the same reason that 2000 years of Christian have separated themselves from Judaism.. Because Christ separated the law of God from the laws of moses and cast them aside. Then provided atonement for the laws of God. Which makes a follower of Christ free from both any moral, ceremonial or civil law.

In my experience, when superstitious people ask for something, they don't really notice when they don't get it.  But on the occasional times they do, it measures more highly.  It is kind of like praying for a 6 on a die roll.  It does happen, but not usually.

In my experience, when superstitious people ask for something, they don't really notice when they don't get it.  But on the occasional times they do, it measures more highly.  It is kind of like praying for a 6 on a die roll.  It does happen, but not usually.
everything has a cost. sometimes the cost is far greater than what you'd ask for worth. When you are given such a gift you find yourself weighing the cost of everything, and can even paralize yourself from asking for anything. Some call this contentment. if it is I find myself there more often than not.

God (if there is a god) probably (if there are probabilities for a god) doesn't want you (if there is a you)  to be speaking) if there is godspeech for it (if there is even an it).

When He claimed to be the son of God he broke the first command, when He healed a sick man on the sabbath He broke the traditional understand of the sabbath, When He said "stand up your sins are forgiven, to a Jew of that stature would know that only God can forgive sins, and if God crippled this man for sinning then it would take God to release Him. This to the pharrisees was also a trick/example of Jesus breaking the 1st commandment. He allowed his deciples to eat without going through the cermoinial hand washing, which was a very big deal to them..

 Then He fashioned a cord into a whip and beat the hell out of the money changers and ran them out of the temple (money changers would have had to been priest as they were handling 'clean animals.')

Granted He did not break the law of God, but He did break the ceremonial and social laws of the Jews. Which schism OT Judaism. You asked why I not a Jew if Jesus was citing Jewish text? It is for the same reason that 2000 years of Christian have separated themselves from Judaism.. Because Christ separated the law of God from the laws of moses and cast them aside. Then provided atonement for the laws of God. Which makes a follower of Christ free from both any moral, ceremonial or civil law.

What fictional characters say bothers me not at all.  I regard them just as fictional as other people here.  Where I differ is that I take fiction very seriously.  You really don't know too much about Judaism, other than the polemic the Gentile Christians have used since 135 CE.  Jewish Messianics were experienced in Judaism, and wouldn't make that error or show that prejudice (Paul for example did not).  Jews were not united then nor now (two Jews, three opinions ... so the saying goes).  Paul's expectation of immanent apocalypse wasn't realized .. he was a false messiah .... but one Hell of a rabbi.

BTW - I have the power to forgive some sins.  I frequently do so.  And I am not a Pharisee ... as I mentioned before.  The Pharisees were a lay sect (see rebellion of Korah in Numbers) that rebelled against the Temple priesthood (plus Levites).  When they did this under the Maccabees ... tens of thousands of them were crucified.  An accommodation was reached between the Pharisees and Sadducees (the Temple priesthood plus Levites) under Roman domination from 63 BCE onward.  The Romans (under Pompey Magnus) intervened because of a succession dispute in the Maccabee family.  Some would say that this is why Pompey Magnus came to a bad end in Egypt in 48 BCE.

Yes. It is quite different. One comes as a self-proclaimed expert who has yet to read the Bible.
that's a outright lie.

Quote
The other comes with knowledge. One arrogantly proclaims, "I know the truth! It is true because I said so!" The other doesn't really care if you agree with him or not, nor does he claim absolute knowledge.
I claim the knowledge God has given me to silence your teacher. i claim the knowledge to answer every question you put up and failed to refute. and I can vet or provide reference mater to my claims.. So yeah I know the truth as well.

Quote
I can learn stuff from Baruch, not from Drich.
We from our last exchange I hope you 'learned' how flawed you teacher was. I hope you learned I can back up my exegesis of scripture with proper reference material. and i hope you realize that at best your 'teacher' is confused about the majority of the facts he chose to share today at worst is lying to drag you further away from God.

I don't recall anyone calling Jesus prideful, stupidly arrogant, or on the verge of exploding from self-importance in the Bible. I do remember people claiming him to use demons to perform miracles, and accusing him of threatening the holy temple. But people calling him arrogant? Nah, I'm going to have to request a citation on that one mate.

Pride of what?

What good is pride if no one will alow you to share it? or no one cares of what you are proud of?

Ever be to a car show with a bone stock 73 vega? Super rare prototype. 1 of 1. who cares. there is a historical curiosity for a moment, but that usually fades quickly... Why people want to see 57 chevys and old mustangs not america's first sub compact.

So then where is this stupidly arrogant pride sourced from? Or is it I will not allow you to shame me for my love in my car? Are you mistaken pride for integrity and honor i have for God, and will not shunn it or walk away because it is not what you want to see. It is not how others react when you try and shame them for bring their unique one off car to your car show.

Why do you ask me 'pride of what'?  And do you think pride is a virtue? 

Allow you to share it?  The 'it' I assume is your faith.  Sounds like a personal problem.  One I don't want to hear about or care about or even think is real (your faith is real--what you have faith in is not).

You came here, to an ATHEIST site to pridefully show your rock solid faith.  No atheist, in case you haven't figured it out yet (and since you are so very, very stupidly arrogant) atheists don't have 'faith'.  Personally, I don't have beliefs.  What I think is real, is based on empirical evidence, not belief.  Since I don't have any beliefs, I don't have faith.    I think you are ignorant (and since ignorance can be fixed that's okay) and stupid (which cannot be fixed) to want atheists to show they are down with your faith.  I am not trying to shame you, for you are much to far gone in your fiction to show any shame--you, on the other hand are all about shaming the lost atheist.  That is a stock-in-trade for theist--shame; they love to use it as a club.  Basically, you came here with a message about a fiction you think is real.  I've thought this all through and did not solicit, nor want your stupidity--why would you think I would, except for your pride, arrogant stupidity????

that's because you have studied your bible properly... you probably just read it cover to cover.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=john+8&version=ERV 48- end of the chapter sport.

Jesus infuriated the priests and the self righteous crowd to the point the tried to stone him. which is a little past where I have taken you This is but one of several examples where Christ makes the 'establishment' livid.

Quote
I do remember people claiming him to use demons to perform miracles, and accusing him of threatening the holy temple. But people calling him arrogant?
56 Your father Abraham was very happy that he would see the day when I came. He saw that day and was happy.”

57 The Jews said to Jesus, “What? How can you say you have seen Abraham? You are not even 50 years old!”

58 Jesus answered, “The fact is, before Abraham was born, I Am.” 59 When he said this, they picked up stones to throw at him. But Jesus hid, and then he left the Temple area.

His arrogance placing himself above the authority and place of abraham by claiming "I am" (god) drove the people to stone Him without roman consent of execution. This would have meant crusifiction for the stone-ers. Yet they were so enraged so impassioned by what Christ had the audacity to say, they were going to stone Him on the spot anyway.

If you read the whole chapter the Jewish leadership and a crowd gather to confront Jesus on the authority from which all of the miricals and teaching were coming from. They planned to put it all off on a demon, but Christ took the opportunity to twist the outcome which just inflamed these men beyond reason or self control.

Quote

30 The Father and I are one.”

31 Again the Jews there picked up stones to kill Jesus. 32 But he said to them, “The many wonderful things you have seen me do are from the Father. Which of these good things are you killing me for?”

33 They answered, “We are not killing you for any good thing you did. But you say things that insult God. You are only a man, but you say you are the same as God! That is why we are trying to kill you!”

So in essence The Jews were trying to kill Jesus a second time because He claimed to be the same as God.. What is the defination of arrogance again?

How much more arrogant can one be than to call himself God? of course unless the man is God...

Which brings us back to me. You call me arrogant because I seem to have all the answers and because I am no longer seeking or guessing at the truth. One understand this condition is a gift of the Holy Spirit. In essence God grants me access to his knoweledge his understanding. It does not belong to me I simply have a heavenly library card...

Your problem is you desperately need to believe there is no God or your whole world shit storms down around you. So If i claim or rather even if I can show I have knowledge of God others over look, or can not observe, in your world view I am the one playing games I am the one who is arrogant.

What if im telling the truth... What if I am just right simply because God grants me access to infinite knowledge... Can you imagine how that would impower someone? the confidence it would give them?? Not that I could begin to process it all, I simply have been invited to share in what I can grasp. but even so... my little share is a far site from what one can grasp after his attempt at Christianity fails.

Arrogant? no, not if what I say is true. remember the defination of arrogant and not just the emotion of the word. So how do you know what I say is true or not? One find God where the bible tells you to look or be ready to open up some old dusty books.

I nswered it the same way.

God put wate above the atmosphere/sky which is above the ionosphere which is outside the know reach of our gravatiational shielding which makes one water boil a -80F and the water vapor would have been taken away by solar winds.

All i did was used science to explain to you why that water is still not there like you think it should be. (an ocean above the sky and a ocean below the land.

If you don't like that I also told you hundred of trillions of gallons water cycle through out skys every year. and That too can be considered to be an ocean in the sky.

Why do you lie so much about what I say? are you stupid? is english a second language? or do you really think I don't know what it is i have said? So then why try and lie to me the author of these words about what was said? I know what was said i wrote them, and as such can not be moved into thinking I said or relayed a different message.

The word arrogant does not appear in the koine greek sport, but rather we seek to define the word and show examples of arrogance in such cases. In both cases the pharisees though Christ to be arrogant (as per the definition) because they would not recognize Him as God. If they did his claims and works would not exceed his importance or abilities. there it is right in front of you and you are looking for a loop hole.

This is why I must seem arrogant to you, because again here I am 100% right but you are simply not smart enough to identify what I said to be truth. then when I explain and make you feel stupid for being uninformed in the demand you made, you want to make it my fault rather than accept responsibility for your own intellectual short comings.

Not necessarily death.  Just pitifully servile to long outdated social/religious precepts or a wanton exploiter of common people's hopes and fears (of which there are many) in order to amass personal wealth/power (an ironic juxtaposition to the alleged Jesus character).  So, rube, robber baron, and/or zealot.

Not necessarily death.  Just pitifully servile to long outdated social/religious precepts or a wanton exploiter of common people's hopes and fears (of which there are many) in order to amass personal wealth/power (an ironic juxtaposition to the alleged Jesus character).  So, rube, robber baron, and/or zealot.

I'm told it's a livable condition, and individually that's true, but mankind must eventually either do away with such notions or be done away with by them.
the 'death' part refers to the many, many wars that christians started--they gleefully deal death and destruction for their god.

Baruch are you eating spinach because its healthy or because you like it? The first days of nutritional science they discovered spinach has a lot of iron and invented Popeye to sell it. But since Popeye science has figured out that we can't absorb iron from spinach very well. (maybe they should have had Popeye start eating brocoli - high in iron and more vitamin -c than orange juice)

Drich - we all have faith - I don't, I don't even know what faith is. sure we have a BS definition made by Paul but every time I hear it my answer is wtf did he just say? not talkin in English
If you want to say faith is trust in god... why should I be trusting in someone that has never proved he exists? If any god doesn't take the time to prove he or she or it exists why waste my time looking for h/s/i? maybe that god doesnt want to be found

No, I don't have faith.  And I don't believe.  Of course I do not understand exactly how an airplane works; in general, but not every system exactly.  So what?  I can say the same about the car I drive or the house I live in.  So what?  What I do know is the track record of my car or airplane I plan to ride in.  I know that it is reasonably safe.  I know that the pilots know what they are doing.  And I think I will get from point a to point b safely and on time.  It is called trust.  I trust the auto and airplane systems to do what they been doing--and no, that is not faith.  Trust is earned from testing.  Faith is blind and needs not be earned--in fact for the theist it is best when not even attempted to be tested.  Faith and belief is not needed nor wanted in my world.  Feel free to use it in yours.

As for the pride you display--you are bursting at the seams with it.  Just about every sentence you type, your pride is dripping all over the place.  In your first couple of statements on the board, one of the first things I thought was, 'You need to get over yourself.'  And you still do.  You wear you 'humbleness' as a badge, as a 'see me, see how humble I am because I follow what god tells me to; and you to can aspire to this same humbleness.'  You are the poster child of how to be prideful.

So long as something out of you control says your not safe., just one of a million plus parts all of which have to be in good working order. Here if you had any idea how everythig worked you'd probably be less inclined. So here in essence less 'proof' is needed to fly. just the testimonial of others, and you are willing to literally bet your life on odd, and a machine you have no idea how it works... Yet when it comes to God where nothing is asked of you, no one even asking you to change anything you can be yourself... this is too large of a leap of faith??!?

If you had your capacity access to the Holy Spirit/Meaning if you had all you could understand of God at your finger tips, not because of who you are but because you were chosen, would you too not be confident in everything you had to say and do concerning God? For me it is not a theory or a guess. I know what god has shown me. and I could not be more blessed about it. you want me to tone it down fine, then I ask you do the same.

Don't jst assume what I say is wrong just because it is different. I have to "flash" my God given authority card/study and book learn when ever someone call my intellectual capacity into question, then you all get huffy when you realize that easy way out is not available to you.

hmmm a quick spell check and some bold to show an example from this post of Drich being too proud...

What is the definition of arrogance again?
ar·ro·gant
/ˈerəɡənt/

adjective

    1. having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or abilities: "he's arrogant and opinionated"

Which brings us back to me. You call me arrogant because I seem to have all the answers and because I am no longer seeking or guessing at the truth. One understands this condition is a gift of the Holy Spirit. In essence God grants me access to his knowledge, his understanding. It does not belong to me I simply have a heavenly library card...

Your problem is you desperately need to believe there is no God or your whole world shit storms down around you. So if I claim or rather even if I can show I have knowledge of God others overlook, or can not observe, in your world view I am the one playing games. I am the one who is arrogant.

What if I'm telling the truth... What if I am just right simply because God grants me access to infinite knowledge... Can you imagine how that would empower someone? the confidence it would give them?? Not that I could begin to process it all, I simply have been invited to share in what I can grasp. but even so... my little share is a far site from what one can grasp after his attempt at Christianity fails.

Arrogant? no, not if what I say is true. remember the definition of arrogant and not just the emotion of the word. So how do you know what I say is true or not? One finds God where the Bible tells you to look or be ready to open up some old dusty books.

sure you do. do you know every system and subsystem in a 787? would you still fly in a 787? Even if you did not have a full working knowledge and confidence drived from a full understanding of how this aircraft worked would you still fly in this aircraft?
I've only been on 2 round-trip flights; uncomfortable all the way. However I know the basic systems. Give me some aircraft aluminum and a CNC and I'll make you an airframe as soon as I figure out the machine. Give me the steel-alloy and I'll crank out the jet after that. ( bad choice on your part) There definitely wasn't any faith going on when I was flying. I was awake every minute of a 7hr red-eye flight to Quito.

here Faith is trust in what other report of God. As in You built your religious efforts on the sand. God answered your prayers, knocked down your old faith, so you have a chance to build a proper one on Him and who He is in accordance to scripture rather than religion.

Correct.  The first watchmaker argument dates to before there were watches.  At least 1000 years old, and it is still invalid (in the context of materialism).  The argument only works for theism, if you are a closet theist to begin with ... which Drich clearly showed over time, over time he showed he was deliberately deceptive.  Usually I assign that to the Devil, not to G-d.

Materialists must presuppose "There is no alternative" or "epiphenomenalism" which is scientism, not science.  Everyone has closet belief systems.  Not to say that materialism is wrong, only that atheists, as humans, same as theists ... produce mostly ape poo.  Some of us produce bear poo ;-)

How ironic is that? the man who argues for the use of the tiniest bit of faith and only at the beginning before God fill his coffers with proof, provides vetted facts in his argument, while the man who demands to know no faith requires it from his readers, as nothing he says is supported by anything.

The fact that you got on the plan shows a reluctant faith. If you knew this plan was your death then you would have fought to the death to be placed on the plane.

Then I challenge you as well please explain how science is not faith based, I'll even start you out with a solid defination.


n.
 "duty of fulfilling one's trust," from Old French feid, foi "faith, belief, trust, confidence, pledge," from Latin fides "trust, faith, confidence, reliance, credence, belief," from root of fidere "to trust," from PIE root *bheidh- (cf. Greek pistis ; see bid ). For sense evolution, see belief. Theological sense is from late 14c.; religions called faiths since c.1300.

In short FAITH Is to believe, trust, to have confidence without full knowledge in something.

Tell me you have full knowledge in every aspect of science and the argument ends... If you don't you have Faith in those field of science that you yourself did not extrapolate a peer approved working theory from. Your 'Faith' is in the work of others is as strong if not stronger than what you assume to be true.

But here's the thing sport.

Science is ever changing. Truth never changes. that means science is based on fact not truth. Fact being a provable or disprovable not absolute truth. if Your 'precious" was based on the truth, then yes you could say you need no faith, but because your 'precious' is ever changing (because new facts userpt old ones) your faith lies in the idea that the current theories are indeed truth. Meaning you can treat others who challenging these facts as challenging the 'truth.' when again they are only facts.

point in case global warming. anyone who challenges these 20 year old facts with all of what science knew of Global warming with the 500 years of collective data we have before this 25 year old theory told us the sky is falling, is treated like he objects to the truth... Again even if he presents 500 years of theory and data the world accepted before they sold their souls to al gore, and the catsup empire.

PURE faith in the data make 'global warming due to carbon emissions a 'inconvenient truth.'

Well, I mainly read theist posts and you could change out names among several and I couldn't tell the difference.  But every atheist I meet seems different from the others.  I suppose if I was a theist it might seem the reverse, but that it hard to imagine.  We all seem to approach atheism is different ways and from different causes.

But to a T Rex, all small mammals were just squeaky snacks!

Do you have an example where my posts are like other theist posts... oh, that's right you claim not to actually be reading posts... no wonder they all seem the same to yo... you pay no attention and just keep circling the same retoric over and over hoping to sell this stroke as high end logical thinking.

I think you have a few who are ntrested in your 'thinking process.' The just spout generalizations atheist ALways say about Christians and put my name inplaceof the word Christian..

See I'm good for business

In short FAITH Is to believe, trust, to have confidence without full knowledge in something.
That's an extremely broad definition, which coincidentally is bandied about by apologists seeking to place their faith that a guy walked on water and cured the sick merely by touch because they read about it in a holy book on the same footing as NASA mission control during the moon landing.

It doesn't take a genius to notice a bit of semantic trickery afoot, since believing in things without evidence is worlds apart from having high confidence in something with a solid track record and every appearance of working as intended.  In fact, those things are pretty much polar opposites of each other.

Tell me you have full knowledge in every aspect of science and the argument ends
Hmmm...omniscience or faith.  What an intriguing false dilemma.  I'm just going to carefully step over..*crunch*...well, it's broken.  Couldn't even withstand light scrutiny.

Science is ever changing. Truth never changes. that means science is based on fact not truth. Fact being a provable or disprovable not absolute truth.
Hence the ongoing devaluation of Truth(TM), particularly "Truth" as propagated by religious organizations - people who couldn't possibly know the validity of the claims they're making and therefore have to compensate with deep conviction, as if that'll make up for it.

Scientific "truth" is provisional for the most part.  A few statements, like 2+2=4 or a circle has no straight lines are necessarily true.  But If I were to say that the solar system has 9 planets, that wouldn't necessarily be the case because one could always discover another one or downgrade the status of an existing one.  This is not a bad thing.  In fact, this ability to self-correct is one of the main reasons science is useful and religion is useless.

point in case global warming. anyone who challenges these 20 year old facts with all of what science knew of Global warming with the 500 years of collective data we have before this 25 year old theory told us the sky is falling, is treated like he objects to the truth... Again even if he presents 500 years of theory and data the world accepted before they sold their souls to al gore, and the catsup empire.

PURE faith in the data make 'global warming due to carbon emissions a 'inconvenient truth.'
Haha.  Global warming denialist, now there's a shocking development.  I love how susceptible people are to believing everything but reality.

I have/Had family @ NASA durning those days. the moon landing 90% math we knew 0 about the moon all speculation so that leaves propulsion/rocket. which is 50%  math, 20%metallurgy, 5% thermodynamics, 20%chemistry 5%"electronics"

So no, not the same at all as no faith is required in believing in a God willing to directly interact with you.

  Are you kidding me??? the world around many say the moon landing never happened. Not one of them but because people know what little 'science' we have vested in the moon landing to them makes it seem impossible. The more you understand about the 1960 space program the more you get the feeling that there was a 10 year span of time where the government threw every spare dollar into makeing this work and by LUCK it did! Go through the national space museum At nasa whatch the old guys talk about how they did thing by the seat of their pants... Not science, but guesstimate and math with a billion dollar backing is the only reason we made it to the moon.

Yet God simply says Ask, seek and knock till you find me, and I will give you a mesure of the Holy Spirit! God the Father Send God the Spirit to interact with you. So in essence God is the proof you get of God!

What proof of the moon landing do we have? grainy footage many say was filmed on a sound stage because this moon dream was bankrupting the country.

Quote
In fact, those things are pretty much polar opposites of each other.
indeed once you critically look at what you are actually getting for proof... One one hand GOD Himself establishes and maintains a relationship with you.

on the other we get a fuzzy black and white video from the moon when/at a time most people could not get a tv signal from a tv station located more than 10 miles away.

Again not saying it didn't happen. I'm just point out the quality of evidence and the fact that despite how shaky it is I have FAITH in the moon landing like most of you d-bags do yet will not admit it no matter how shaky the evidence is.

Quote
Hmmm...omniscience or faith.  What an intriguing false dilemma.  I'm just going to carefully step over..*crunch*...well, it's broken.  Couldn't even withstand light scrutiny.
Again the moonlanding was topped shelfed in the realm f 'science' meaning not many people had access to it/the program or the data it produced, therefore it was never meant to be scrutinized as critically as your relationship with God will be. As God will send the winds and rain to test every aspect of your beliefs right down to the core... till your questioning your own consciousness. That said that is why I have faith in the moon landing and I believe in God. but again it is ok for me to say that despite the shaky evidence that you pointed out will not stand up to severe scrutiny.

Quote

says a douche who is holding p the single greatest example of "faith in science" that 'science' has ever demanded from soceity. a moon landing despite all the logistical lack of technology to even venture outside the earth protective magnetic shielding, let alone the fuel calculation out there that say based on rocket engine efficiency and fuel capacity of the saturn 5 there was only 2/3rds the rocket assembly could carry despite what was needed. meaning they according to some, could not have made it back home if they indeed made it to the moon... but again my faith in my family who worked at nasa durning those years and years after carries me on, I believe despite what other may say, no matter how or what evidence provided. as I have faith in the space program. As apparently you do too!

1/2 the program was based on math.. So where does luck come in?

Again no. I have faith we went to the moon. Why because my uncle and cousin both testify to their roles in the programs they were involved in at the time.

Do you see blind man? I am allowed to have faith, so I can say we went to the moon based on what I believe to be true. You can't. because the evidence does not support such an assertion. The fact that the radiation shielding was not avaible till 1980 tells me you can not believe in a 1969 moon landing... that is unless you too have faith in science and those who worked on the project.. But then again that destroys your whole B/S line about science is apart from faith.

Yeah.  The manned mission that landed on the moon was Apollo 13, the 7th manned mission in the program and the manned mission that popularized the phrase "Houston, we've had a problem here".

The equipment didn't "work flawlessly", nor was its success attributable to luck (that idea insults the huge amount of painstaking work and knowledge that went into the program).

My basic argument against religion is that it is revelatory in nature and faith-based, therefore immune to change.  While science is never sure but is provisional.  Theists point to that and think science has no foundation.  But science is more a method of factual thinking, but a set of ideas.

Theists point to science changing as some evidence of unvalidity.  But, in reality, science doesn't change that much in terms of basic discoveries.  F=M*A, atoms exist, the Earth is a sphere, etc.  The ideas on the fringes are always subject to change, but those are just ideas being tested and questioned.  Religion has no testing process.

Funny you should ask

I was asked to put on a timming belt on my sisters nissan v6 pathfinder or something.. Got it all down and it was a double over head cam set up and when I went to release the old belt the right cam went left a few degrees the right inner when left a feww degrees and the same thing happened on the other head.. No biggy I figured I'll just look up the marks and reset everything again. Problem was I spent an hour looking for the crank mark... No dice. Googled it.. turns out there was a casting problem in the timming cover for the first 500 cars made that year with my particular engine set up.

That means besides a complete tear down there was no way to fix this. So I prayed over this thing explained to God what I was doing and why it needed to be done. so I was staring at the cam gears and saw the first one literally move (Which takes a great effort as you are fighting the valve springs) something like three teeth to the right, the next one like one click/tooth to the left and so on till all 4 cams had moved and moved back. so I wrote it all down set each one by hand to what I saw move. put the rest of the car together and it fired right up no spit no sputter the very first time.

This was amazing as anyone who has worked on a non interference motor will tell you the timing has to be spot on or it will destroy the motor.

So yeah.. I've prayed over many a motor and prayed for a "healing."

Oh, so that's how it works huh? I guess Unk was lying when he said the saturn V was not built with safty in mind, that they were when he said they weren't back up with redundant systems and sub systems like space craft today. that everything they used was heavy and took up alot of space, and often time they were lucky to have one of something let alone two or three. Then He pointed out the failure of "Modular redundancy" when two systems were required instead of just one.. Modular redundancy means that the parts in redundant system were not compatible. (I figured you should be given that definition because you are too F-ing intellectually lazy to look it up yourself, because if you weren't you would have been able to come up with the guidance system being the only redundant system on the saturn V launch system.

BECAUSE THERE WEREN'T ANY BACK UP AND EACH PHASE OF THE MISSION HAD TO BE TESTED ON IT'S OWN SO 11 Previous missions to Test each major change or Phase of the moon landing, verse 1st mission test flight of the shuttle because the shuttle had 5 back up computers!!!

No, apollo 11, 12 made it to the moon, 13 partially exploded into space because there wasn't a redundant cryo stir motor, they recovered, and yes a lot of hard work went into their recovery but hard work does not compensate for the intangables. like upon the restart of the lander (without heat) condensation built up. The wiring of the lander was not water tight.. IT WAS DUMB LUCK or GOD if you like that keep them from staring a fire in an oxygen rich enviroment like that. Or a thousand other things, like Luck the Heat shield did not crack upon the explosion of the oxygen tank or luck the chutes were not ripped up or damaged by the scrapmatal or luck that the explosion did not take out more primary or sub systems (As apposed to back ups)

Space shuttle had three flight computers ... each less powerful than a smart phone today ... anyway, two out of three had to come to the same result, a majority vote, for things to go forward.  It could tolerate one of three computers, out of whack.
Uh no

As I said before there were 5 not 3 computers on the very first shuttle. 4 programmed exactly the same and one no frills back up with the basic telemetry that allowed for a safe take off and landing.

My basic argument against religion is that it is revelatory in nature and faith-based, therefore immune to change.  While science is never sure but is provisional.  Theists point to that and think science has no foundation.  But science is more a method of factual thinking, but a set of ideas.

Theists point to science changing as some evidence of unvalidity.  But, in reality, science doesn't change that much in terms of basic discoveries.  F=M*A, atoms exist, the Earth is a sphere, etc.  The ideas on the fringes are always subject to change, but those are just ideas being tested and questioned.  Religion has no testing process.

Glob..
Apples and oranges. Religion is not an academic study. it is a methodology in which we can sever God first then man.

Science is not a living philosphy it is a guestimation of how, why what, based on limited data or it would neve change as well.

Now if you take the conflict between What God said and what we currently say science says then you have two very different subjects.

With the OP 90% of the contradiction is now Gone.

And like I do, I have made lots of money understanding and aply practical science in my everyday work, but at the same time can also worship God and have it not conflict with anything I know to be true in science.

Only the descendant of a foolish monkey/man (one the flood did not get) could not reconcile the two with what I have placed in the OP

I thought it was 4. If one didn't agree and the rest did, that computer automatically shut-down.

Well technology has advanced so far that I would say that the avg smart phone could simultaneously launch 4 Saturn V rockets or 2-3 Space Shuttle, if someone wrote the software

Oh, so that's how it works huh? I guess Unk was lying when he said the saturn V was not built with safty in mind, that they were when he said they weren't back up with redundant systems and sub systems like space craft today.
If he said that, then yes, he was lying or just didn't know. Sure, there was some risk involved, but they were going to the fucking moon. Of course there was some risk involved. They did have redundancies, and what little that wasn't redundant was built to very high engineering quality. That's why the Saturn V was so expensive. You could literally buy every Veryon Supersport on the planet with handsome change left over for the cost of a single Apollo launch (at today's prices).

Quote from: Drich0150
that everything they used was heavy and took up alot of space, and often time they were lucky to have one of something let alone two or three.
Well, certainly the tanks didn't have redundancy, but they were built to high standards.

Quote from: Drich0150
Then He pointed out the failure of "Modular redundancy" when two systems were required instead of just one.. Modular redundancy means that the parts in redundant system were not compatible. (I figured you should be given that definition because you are too F-ing intellectually lazy to look it up yourself, because if you weren't you would have been able to come up with the guidance system being the only redundant system on the saturn V launch system.
Redundancy doesn't mean "two or more of everything," you fucking idiot. It means that even in a catestrophic accident (like what happened on Apollo 13), there were contingencies and backups for what might go wrong to get the crew back safely. The LEM served as a lifeboat on 13. It counts as a redundant system.

Quote from: Drich0150
Why do you think we didn't actually do an attempted moon landing till the 11th apollo Mission?
Because they were testing the systems through Apollo 10.

Quote from: Drich0150
BECAUSE THERE WEREN'T ANY BACK UP AND EACH PHASE OF THE MISSION HAD TO BE TESTED ON IT'S OWN SO 11 Previous missions to Test each major change or Phase of the moon landing, verse 1st mission test flight of the shuttle because the shuttle had 5 back up computers!!!
Well, wouldn't you want to test the systems before going through with the full mission, you fucking nimrod?

an intellectual discussion Doesn't work that way sport.. I make an assertion and then back it with no less than three reference point one telling you redundancies were limited to navigation, second source said redundant systems were not always planned/modular as per the example of the oxygen scrubbers in the command modual verse the lam were redundant systems but did not share the came construction. Which nearly ended apollo 13 sohortly after the cryo stir explosion.
Quote
Well, certainly the tanks didn't have redundancy,
actually they were several oxygen tanks, but most all of the o2 was planned.

Quote
but they were built to high standards.
no one is disputing that sort, but a high standard does not make a redundant system.

Quote
Redundancy doesn't mean "two or more of everything," you fucking idiot.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redundancy_(engineering)
In engineering, redundancy is the duplication of critical components or functions of a system with the intention of increasing reliability of the system, usually in the form of a backup or fail-safe, or to improve actual system performance, such as in the case of GNSS receivers, or multi-threaded computer processing.

So yeah in engineering a redundant system means there is a back up or another system ready to take over the primary. I am an engineer with an engineering company with 20+ years and 3 patents are you seriously going to argue this moot point against me and the reference material I just left you? If so just know the "Ya-Huh" you plan to use has already discredited you.

Quote
It means that even in a catestrophic accident (like what happened on Apollo 13), there were contingencies and backups for what might go wrong to get the crew back safely.
No... sportress those are contingencies. A contingency plan is just that.. a plan worked out based on a system failure. There is a book of them. on the apollo mission the book was thrown out because they said the space craft would never be able to sustain that much damage and be survivable.. (which is another stroke of luck as the 'science' had already given up before the failure was completely identified.

So here Again I left reference material supporting my personal take on those words. if you seek to topple you must find a more reliable source, otherwise your intellectual laziness will be identified and simply dismissed as not being worthy of comment.

Quote

Yes sweet heart but as I also pointed out the parts on the lem were not compatible with the systems in the command modual (The oxygen scrubbers to be exact.)

Well, wouldn't you want to test the systems before going through with the full mission, you fucking nimrod?
Holy Crap... if you just cut and pasted the next sentence... are you so foolish as to not read all of what I write before you respond? or is it your hope I don't remember what I told you if you do not quote it???

IF you read the rest of what I wrote You would see the bit about the shuttle astronauts not having 10 missions before the first flight. Why? because they have the redundant systems you thought the Saturn V did. The fact is the saturn V did not have the redundancies which is why there were so many non-moon flights on a rocket built to goto the moon.

Again, can just disagree I posted quite a few references. if you want to argue what I posted you have to refute the nasa based material I quoted from.

Or just concede the argument, because the deeper you go the more foolish you look arguing with NASA documents that you are trying to contradict.

Oh, look! Redundancy doesn't require duplications of components; it can involve duplication of function. The Apollo spacecraft was functionally redundant in terms of life support, in the form of the LEM. One way to achieve functional redundancy is with modular redundancy, but it's hardly the only way.

This basically destroys your entire argument. You claimed that the way that Apollo got to the moon was through luck. Well, no, that wasn't luck. It was engineering. Very little was left to chance. It took only a little fuel with the redundant systems on the LEM to boost Apollo 13 onto its return trajectory. Contingency is a form of redundancy, the functional kind. Properly executed, it can put you back on track in a mission, or at least get you back safely, and in engineering, that's all that's required. At best, you are nitpicking about the exact engineering definitions, but you have not dismissed my overall point: that the acheivements of the Apollo program was due to MAN, not to any sort of God.

In American English, however, the term has assumed a derogatory meaning, probably because of Bugs Bunny's references to Elmer Fudd as a "poor little Nimrod".[1] While this was most likely using the term's "hunter" sense, it contributed to the development of a sense "one who was easily confounded".

When you have more money in the bank than you could possibly spend during the rest of your life, it is wrong to want more. You should be in a treatment center right next to someone doing an ounce of cocaine every week.

To name just one, oil companies are given billions of dollars a year even though their need for support ended at least 50 years ago.

Yes billion dollar businesses are created to fail. And businesses that are 50-100 years old go out of business because scum like Jamey Diamond and David Koch have figured out how to drain the companies and legally put all the money in their own pockets.

Al Gore made some mistakes in his video, but you can't deny the basic premise of what he was saying. Not even with the Bible. There isn't any place in the Bible that says god will keep us from destroying this planet. During the last 10 years there have been huge grass fires in the artic circle; something that as far as I know has never happened in recorded history. Oh yeah the last couple years the streets of Miami are flooded at high tide because of the rise in ocean level.

Trump reopening coal mines doesn't help any miners because they are being replaced by automated equipement. In the new coal mines 10 people can get out 20-50 times as much coal with machines as used to be with 100 miners.

Is there a trans-Atlantic pipeline? The only pipeline I've been hearing about is keystone. A pipeline to take the tar sands from Alberta to Texas. (Canada could have easily have made a pipe to their own refinery but the government of Canada considered the tar sands so toxic that they didn't want it processed in Canada -denied the applications of its own oil companies)

The problem is, if you eliminate everyone from the bottom of the bell curve, the mean moves to the right, but the shape is still a bell curve.  Continue the process, and you eliminate everyone.  Society has to figure out a way to live with the lower half of the bell curve, or not live at all.
I think that is because professional media is controlled by rich people, and most of the wealthy are republicans. The U.S. is constantly bombarded with propaganda of the wealthy. Both Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon would be primaried for being too liberal.

so how is that stupid/?
It's not, in and of itself. Thing is, when people buy something, they expect to get something in return. The electorate expected a competent leader. They got something different. Then again, it is Trump's modus operendi.

Quote from: Drich0150
here's the thing No one man runs this country.. Our executive gives the country direction. It is all three branches together that "run" this country.
Nitpicking. He was elected to do the job of being commander in chief.

Quote from: Drich0150
Boarder crossings down 70%, record high stock markets, rededication for US jobs, Getting us out of bad trade deals like the paris accords and nafta, tpp ect... I'd say are all great things for the first 6 months.
Amazing that this happened without any significant change in economic or domestic policy, hence my comment on riding the coattails of the Obama administration. No, execuative orders are not that powerful — it takes money to make this happen, and Congress holds the purse-strings, and time to affect real changes, with meetings, discussion, studies and shit. The next administration can reverse Trump's orders just as easily and bring every single piece back.

The only thing Trump has done on our boarder is block a certain population from a region that we do not see significant numbers of people from. The Paris accords were not binding in the slightest, we're still in NAFTA, and the TPP was a trade accord that we happened to be the head honcho in.

Quote from: Drich0150
That's not what the country wanted for the first 6 months.
You still need some strategy about how you want to handle the economy, even if it's not your main focus. Again, these great things for the economy you speak of happened because of Obama, not Trump.
 
Quote from: Drich0150
It is never going all the way away.
He promised to repeal or reform Obamacare in the first 100 days. He has not done either. Failure.

Quote from: Drich0150
So what.
It does not concern you that a foreign power might have influenced the election? Might still be influencing the most powerful office in the land? Yeah, that tells me just about all I need to know about your intelligence.

Quote from: Drich0150
Actually he has for the last six months done everything he could to dismantle Obama's legacy.
You don't seem to understand that Trump is benefiting from that same legacy that you and him disparage.
 
Quote from: Drich0150
Everything obama accomplished He has revoked.
No, it hasn't. Changing the operational workings of the executive branch takes more than executive orders. Those operational workings have to have a certain inertia or they are meaningless. They can't be changed by Trump simply swinging his pen. He must change them the same way that they were enacted, and those bylaws take a long time to change. Trump's only opportunity to revoke Obama's legacy wholesale like you envision sunsetted after 60 days. Now, he can only strike them down the same way they were enacted, and that takes a long, long time of constant effort.

Quote from: Drich0150
Iran deal he is trying to get us out of, shutting Cuba back down, trying to get us out of obama care ttp is gone, we are going ahead with the transatlantic pipeline,
Which will be more of a job destroyer than a creator. Sure, thousands of jobs will be created, but those are only construction jobs. Once construction is finished, they disperse elsewhere, and every town that depended on the construction jobs becomes a ghost town. The permanent jobs created by the pipeline number in the 50-70 range. Furthermore, the transport jobs that used to crate that oil will be destroyed, never to come back.

That's why the oil companies want the pipeline — they want to cut costs by cutting the jobs needed to transport that oil to a minimum. But, of course, you are an idiot and don't see this.

And the TPP was an economic arangment that we dictated and enacted for our benefit. Now the former signatories are going to form their own version and shut the US out. This was economic potential Trump has simply pissed away.

Quote from: Drich0150
He has obliterated the green initiative, and the whole frech accord is also gone...
The Paris accords were never binding. Period. There was nothing to back out of. Furthermore, now that he's focused away from green technologies, the green industry is now at a disadvantage against the rest of the world, who are going to get on that like white on rice. Even if you don't believe in the green cause, it's still an industry that employs people (more people than coal) and is going to be growing in the next few years. It is an economic opportunity that Trump is simply pissing away.

Quote from: Drich0150
so what exactly is left of obama that Trump is skirting on?
Eliminating all that high profile stuff still leaves the operational cogs in the machinery, the basic stuff that keeps the country running. Trump may have eliminated some high profile stuff, but most of it is still in place.

Quote from: Drich0150
Not the point. The point is they don't give billions of dollars away otherwise you would have a billion dollars as well. Rather you need be quite smart to obtain and maintain a billion dollars. Something Trump has indeed done.
It takes some basic intelligence, but any person could have done what Trump has done and more by simply investing their money in the stock market. If Trump had done that when he got his first million, he would be worth twice to four times what he claims he's worth. Furthermore, while he may be personally rich, he is a small businessman. He basically is his own company, and while a billion dollars is a lot to someone like you and me, a billion dollar company is mid-sized at best. The big companies like Apple, Microsoft, GM, Amazon, Google, etc. are all worth hundreds of billions of dollars, each.

Think about it. When was the last time you bought a Trump-branded product? I predict, never. Me neither. Trump could have disappeared five years ago and no one would have noticed. The same could not be said of truly big companies like Apple et al.

So, no, someone who is unable to outperform the random drift that is the stock market is not someone I consider smart with money. He's also bankrupted his businesses six times, all using other people's money. And those holdings you claim he has around the world? Most of them, not his holdings. They belong to other people and Trump is simply renting out his name for a fee. You'd have to be a drool on the floor idiot to not make money from that arrangement.

Quote from: Drich0150
please explain how wanting more point to a broken character. King David collected alsorts of taxes for stuff his people did not need but rather for the building of the first temple his son was supposed to build. Point simply wanting more is not a bad thing, it is what you want it for.
King David had to build a temple out of obligation. Nothing obligates Trump to do any similiar thing. It's simply naked greed. Bill Gates is not my favorite person in the world, but he had the human decency to use his wealth to support the society that made him rich. Trump? I don't see him doing any similar thing. So yeah, deeply broken.

Given all the pedophile priests there has been in history your not doing a very good job of it.
Also using the story of sodom and gomorrah as the standard for what you consider morality in the bible is one used pretty much every time a christian wants to condemn a homosexual to hell and damnation, so might want to outsource yourself there.

Obamacare was created by the Heritage Foundation and tested by Romney.
and why was it called obama care? oh, that's right he put his name on it to sell this turd to the american people because he is a branding whore just like you claim trump to be. Do you really think the core legesltion (which is what the rep will use to rebuild the affordable care act that you attribute to the heritage foundation) legislation included the federal government taking over all student loans and increasing the intrest rate as a way to help pay for this failing beast? Not to mention the 1/2 dozen other way obama and the "Dims" used this failing behemoth as a federal government expansion.

I honestly think it was designed to fail, and clinton was to push the ever more expansive single/government provider system. where socialist decend upon the medical community and set pricing for everyone, yet tax the hell out of the rest of us in another government expansion.

If you google what the heritage foundation suggested, you would not recognise it as obama care. it was mearly the frame work of how to upside medicade.

When you have more money in the bank than you could possibly spend during the rest of your life, it is wrong to want more. You should be in a treatment center right next to someone doing an ounce of cocaine every week.
It does not work that way. Inorder to 'have' access to say a million dollars you assetts have to exceed that times 10. with large money there is a point of diminishing returns. (which is why people who never had money or came into it quick like lottery or a star athelete or rapper or something always goes broke) because once you have say a million you need 10 more in infrastructure to keep it, meaning investments and shelters so the federal government does not take what you earned and give it to some a-hole who's job is to get high all day. A million dollars will not sit static in your bank account, if you do not rightly divide it. More so the more you make the faster it can go. unless you tie the money up in tangible assets or investments. but to do that decreases avaible on hand cash... Meaning you could own 3 sky scrapers but not have the money in hand to put fuel in your jet. So yes you need more, and the more you have the more you need to maintain, not expand, but just to maintain your life. So yes a million may seem like a lot, but in truth it may only be 1/3 of that if your friends and family don't take it first. But if you are invested you may only see or be able to have access to 10% of that..

Yes billion dollar businesses are created to fail.
example seriously provide an example and subsequent documentation, not of a billion dollar business failure but of a billion dollar business designed to fail and the owners make billions more upon failure. because that is what is being discussed, not whether or not a billion dollar business has ever failed.

Quote
And businesses that are 50-100 years old go out of business because scum like Jamey Diamond and David Koch have figured out how to drain the companies and legally put all the money in their own pockets.
Are you dense? did the business owner 50 or 100 years ago designed these businesses to fail? Again that is what i am talking about not a liquidation of assetts, of which the banks and lenders get paid out of first!/No one is making money, everyone is loosing money, the only question is how much do you want to loose.

This is where you guys go off from what precious science has established with 500 years of mainstream understanding for a guy who casup money wanting to sell you carbon credits (because they will save the sky from falling)

No one is denying the planet is changing otherwise we'd be in another ice age. But the difference is 500 years of meteorology tells us it is because the sun is putting out more than it was. casup man is simply trying to cash in on the old chicken little bit.

No... Canada does not have the oil refinement capability/infrastructure to tackle the level of refinement needed for this source of oil. So they simply hand it off and get paid a royality.

No the Media is Hard left my friend and they don't even pretend to be different.

Great example H. Clinton Colluded with the Russians while active Secretary of state to have the US sell 25% of all uranium the US produced to russia, and she received 140 million dollars to do it.

The president of the United States Has a Meeting with The Russian president it goes 1 hour longer than schedualed and the media is literally telling people that trump sold out the country to the russians..

If you wanted a less compent leader than trump then by literal default clinton is your canidate. but again you are not using the word to describe someone's ablity to manage and or lead, you are using the word to describe popularity by your factions terms, which is a sad form of brain washing.

You lost and yet you think you are still better somehow.. sad. maybe that is why all the tolerant d-bags took to the streets in riots and why they still protest.. they/you drank the cool-aide and you still think you are better your candidate through all of her failings was better, when clearly the electorate disagrees.

If we want real change draining the swamp is going to have to be apart of the process.

unless they get signed into a bill/law through the proper channels. That is exactly why obama was a lame duck because He could never get both the house and congress onside, so rather than vote in his legacy the proper way he just E/O'ed it

"we" via our proxies voted it down. Not a presidential failure, but a general consensus failure from the congress and house.

Seriously This is how russia controls an election??? By what showing us the truth about who one of our canidates are? This woman was a world thug, a gangster. If I were incharge of a country she was looking to come after I would data dump as well in hopes the american people had an ounce of morality left in them.

Now what about Omama's recent attempt to get the prime minster of Israel ousted in his last election? Obama spent millions of tax dollars in negative adds on Israeli tv and not to mention a putten effort in the way of covert actions to try and change the seat of power in israel to BENFIT IRAN!!!

Why have I never heard one of you mention this outside a sweeping dismissal?

Trump has overturned all that was uniquely Obama. everything else was simply custodial. meaning the same crap every president has to do or deal with on one level or another.

No, it hasn't. Changing the operational workings of the executive branch takes more than executive orders. Those operational workings have to have a certain inertia or they are meaningless. They can't be changed by Trump simply swinging his pen.

what transport jobs???
When the cost of transport exceed the market value of the oil the oil sits until it becomes viable to tap that resource. The pipline makes it viable. at the current 53 a barrel the oil is not valuable enough to ship where the pipline would end.

Quote
That's why the oil companies want the pipeline — they want to cut costs by cutting the jobs needed to transport that oil to a minimum. But, of course, you are an idiot and don't see this.
ah.. no. not all the way true anyway. The alskian pipeline is a good example of this. the resources in northern alaska were far far too expensive to transport or utlize until the pipline made oil consumption from there affordable.

The Paris accords were never binding. Period.
Glob.. So if we weren't gong to pay, then why say we are by signing???

There was nothing to back out of.
... You don't understand what the paris accord was do you? It was supposed to be all the 1st world countries putting all their money in a fund, and installing "green energy alternitives to the2nd and 3rd world nations who was still burning coal/fuel oil for power energy. so that they would not have to go through the industrial revolution/high pollution days the US and the other 1st worlder did. That was the crux of the paris accords was to bring up the rest of the world on the back of the US dollar. and you said we did not have to pay? Then again if not why sign? The accord did nothing in the way for supporting or inventing new green tech. It was to install green tech in places that could not afford it on their own allowing say the EU to polute on a little long because they reduced their carbon foot print by off setting what guam or some african village would have put now but now have wind farms. It was a world wide win win for anyone not in the US.


Quote
Furthermore, now that he's focused away from green technologies, the green industry is now at a disadvantage against the rest of the world, who are going to get on that like white on rice.
That is bs, nothing will stop that industry for one simple reason. There's gold in them thar hills! It's just now it will not be government controlled or sponsored gold. it will be held privatly, and that is what this accord was always really about. Government cashing in in the energy market.

Quote
Even if you don't believe in the green cause, it's still an industry that employs people (more people than coal) and is going to be growing in the next few years. It is an economic opportunity that Trump is simply pissing away.
Hey moron, Trump did not sign an order banning the development of green tech, He simply took government out of the industry so it can make it on it's own... look at healthcare, do you really want that abortion in charge of all the world green energy development and production? The patent I retained/made was in the green energy field and we could indeed qualify for obama grants but it gave the governement too much lateral control on how the patent could be used... It is like having an uncle telling you he will buy you what ever you want in toy R Us but you have to allow him to put his hand down your pants anytime he likes... IDK about you by to me that was a no thank tom hanks moment. I want control over my own stuff.

Quote
Eliminating all that high profile stuff still leaves the operational cogs in the machinery, the basic stuff that keeps the country running. Trump may have eliminated some high profile stuff, but most of it is still in place.
Those 'gogs' were placed by the founding fathers. I acknowledge them when I said there are presidential dties that every president has to deal with, but what goes beyond that gives a president his legacy are the things that president enacted himself. like Lincoln's emancipation proclamation. What trump did or is in the processing of doing is revoking every single piece of personal legislation Obama enacted. The rest sweet heart is not about obama, but about the fundamentals of office those nondescript cogs that make this country run ARE the frame work of this government and it's Constitution. Not an obama legacy.

Quote
It takes some basic intelligence, but any person could have done what Trump has done and more by simply investing their money in the stock market.
Ah, no. Do not trivialize the accumulation of a billion dollars several times over. especially with something as trivial as the market.
there are only 2000 people on the whole planet who have accomplished this feat. Again they do not give this money away. If you look at the list there is not one dumb person among them. You may not like them but that has nothing to do with intelligence. To attack a person's intelligence is a latent liberal's way to try and discredit a person without having to address any real substance. In essence it is a game dumb people play with each other so the can seem smarter in the presents of other game players.

Because in truth the only people concerned with how smart someone else is are teachers and stupid people who do not want to be found out.

If Trump had done that when he got his first million, he would be worth twice to four times what he claims he's worth. Furthermore, while he may be personally rich, he is a small businessman.

The big companies like Apple, Microsoft, GM, Amazon, Google, etc. are all worth hundreds of billions of dollars, each.

No. Again 2000 people with a billion or more. there are far more big businesses than just apple and google. what defines a big business is more than 100 million dollar per year in revenue. different thing different countries, but accross the board trump is/was big business.

If you are going to be a 'fact's person you must stick with them even when they make your position less secure. you must be ready to change to fit the facts rather than change facts to fit your narritive, which is what you are doing when you change the defination of big business to only fit those whom you like.

Think about it. When was the last time you bought a Trump-branded product?
I've got a big red hat and a button that says lock her up!

Quote
I predict, never. Me neither. Trump could have disappeared five years ago and no one would have noticed. The same could not be said of truly big companies like Apple et al.

So, no, someone who is unable to outperform the random drift that is the stock market is not someone I consider smart with money.
You are delusional... show me a group of billionares who have outperformed the random drift of the stock markets. You are the one pretending this is a common thing, out of the list of 2000 show me the handful that made this a common thing..

He's also bankrupted his businesses six times, all using other people's money.
The best I got was 4 times by a legit source (forbes)

And those holdings you claim he has around the world? Most of them, not his holdings. They belong to other people and Trump is simply renting out his name for a fee. You'd have to be a drool on the floor idiot to not make money from that arrangement.
Which is how big money works sport. "rent" is a buy in to the company, and if you don't think Trump does not get a larger check in return, yet keeps his name on the building.. then you are turning into the bigger fool.

Nothing obligates Trump to do any similiar thing. It's simply naked greed.

Here competency is a metaphor for popularity. Because if it were meant to be taken as the word is defined then trump's competency out maneuvered the best Clinton could muster.
The competency that people wanted in a president is different from the competency that Trump has so far demonstrated. Believe it or not, Trump is now our EMPLOYEE. The electorate put him there to do a job, and Trump convinced enough of the right parts of that electorate that he was the best person for that job. But convincing people that he is the right person for the job and being the right person for the job are different things.

You're simply trying to distract me from the competency that actually matters from the competency that got Trump into the white house.

Quote
You lost and yet you think you are still better somehow.. sad.
You seem to think that the presidential election is a game of football. That it doesn't matter who wins as long as your opponents lose. No, dearheart, like it or not we're in this together. If Trump fucks up, he fucks it up for everyone. You are part of the political partisanship that has been poisoning America for years.

Quote
not familiar with politics I see. the picking of 'nits" is the job of commander in chief,
No, I meant YOU'RE nitpicking, you idiot. Sure, the president doesn't rule alone, but he sets the tone of his term, is the spokesperson for the US to foreign powers, is responsible for carrying out the law, and so on. He has a huge responsibility that I don't think that Trump can handle.

Quote
it hasn't been 6 months give it time. that is the next thing on the chopping block.
He can't even kill Obamacare, the thing he promised to do in his first 100 days. Not that this surprises me. Obamacare is simply the healthcare plan that the Republicans wished they passed. The only other realistic choice is some form of socialized medicine that every other civilized country has. The political divide for taxes, etc. are even deeper.

Quote
I think they even pulled out Michelle's roses and replaced with with "Euge" ones
Yeah, I'm sure that represents a "yuge" change of economic policy.

Quote
unless they get signed into a bill/law through the proper channels. That is exactly why obama was a lame duck because He could never get both the house and congress onside, so rather than vote in his legacy the proper way he just E/O'ed it
These rules and regulations are not execuative orders. They are carefully considered and vetted procedures of how to translate the laws that congress passes into actions. They tell you what "carrying out the law" constitutes.

The rules that Obama enacted did not start with his lame duck period. They were years in the making. Some of it had been the works since before he was elected, and only in his administration were those rules and regulations worked out. That simple fact gives them the inertia that allows them to survive a prolonged period of not being enforced by Trump.

Quote
not for long
NAFTA is a treaty. Only congress can strike it down at this point. I'm not optimistic.

again it is the very next thing on the agenda.
So you admit that all of the positive economic effects were not due to Trump, but to Obama. Concession accepted.

give it time, give it time...
Give it time for them to... what? Mess it up? I think your priorities are a bit skewed, cupcake.

Quote
No, He did. meaning He put fourth legislation that would indeed do that.
No, he promised to repeal Obamacare and put in place something better in his first 100 days. He's failed that. GG.

Quote
But because He is not a tryant He did not force it with an E/O as obama did when He implemented obama care to begn with.
That's odd. I thought Obamacare was PASSED in congress, and still is the law of the land.

Consider the source. Russia has always had dick-envy for the US, and saw in Trump the opportunity to bring their long-time enemy down a peg or two. Why are you assuming that any of the above is the truth, when it comes from a power that has interest in seeing the US diminish in power?

No, to benefit us. If we oust a hard-line Israli leader, the palistinians might finally calm down and ease tensions a bit. This actually hurts Iran, because that country has been using anti-Zionist rhetoric to bolster its own position for ages.

what transport jobs???
When the cost of transport exceed the market value of the oil the oil sits until it becomes viable to tap that resource. The pipline makes it viable. at the current 53 a barrel the oil is not valuable enough to ship where the pipline would end.
Is that the lie they keep feeding you? We've been using the Alberta tar sands as a source of syncrude since 1978. It's been producing 1.8 million barrels per day since 2012, and the US imports 1 million barrels of that. How do you think that oil ends up in the US? Are they transported via well-wishes and pixie dust? Do the Canadian geese load them up on their migration? No, it gets transported via trucks and other means of transport.

Quote
ah.. no. not all the way true anyway. The alskian pipeline is a good example of this. the resources in northern alaska were far far too expensive to transport or utlize until the pipline made oil consumption from there affordable.
Then why were oil tankers coming from Alaska? Don't you remember the Exxon Valdez? Why was it in the area to have its guts ripped open by a reef, spilling about 10 mil barrels, if it wasn't there to ship oil to California? Oh, right. It's because it was profitable to ship oil from Alaska.

Quote
As a consumer moron. it killed jobs because it made it far cheaper to business over seas.
which is good because then it makes american based companies who need to ship back to this market, reconsider the cost of manufacturing over seas. meaning jobs come home which is what this president and those who voted for him are all about.
The trade imbalanace with the asian countries began LONG before and without the TPP, sugar. Remember a very important point: We hadn't signed it yet. That's why it was easy to back out.

Therefore, the migrations of jobs overseas is NOT the fault of the TPP, and one of the goals of the TPP was to correct this disparity, but Trump has pissed that away. Moron.

I think about them, and make the ideas my own, if they're worth anything. It is simply bizzare to think that a treaty that had not been signed into law caused the migrations of jobs overseas, a phenomena that had been happening for decades prior. It just doesn't work as an example of good reasoning.

Quote
Glob.. So if we weren't gong to pay, then why say we are by signing???
You seem to be envisioning that we're shelling out money into some black hole if we were to comply with the accords. We're not. We're going to be paying that money to workers to change the basis of our economy away from dirty technologies. All that money is going into the US economy. That's the thing Trump doesn't understand. What you don't understand.

And you seem to be envisoning that if we don't comply with the accords, then we won't be paying. Nope. We'll pay, only it won't be workers, but in changes in farming patterns, the damage caused by tropical species migrating north and causing damage, new and nasty diseases once confined to the tropics, and lost revenue from the fact that the rest of the world will be more reluctant to buy our products because our industry is still "dirty."

Quote
... You don't understand what the paris accord was do you?
Do you? I've read the damn thing. You know, what it actually says instead of the lies your sources feed you. There's no mention in the accord of specific targets. The US is allowed to be as pessimistic as he wants as to its targets, though that might piss off the other signatories. There's also no means of enforcement. It's non-binding. It's simply a promisary note.

"green energy alternitives to the2nd and 3rd world nations who was still burning coal/fuel oil for power energy. so that they would not have to go through the industrial revolution/high pollution days the US and the other 1st worlder did.
<snip>
Let's for the sake of argument assume that the above is true. Who's going to be selling them that green tech? Thanks to Trump, not us. Green tech just doesn't pop out of nowhere. Someone has to make it for those 2nd and 3rd world countries to buy from. If we played our cards right, we could get all that money back and then some, and we would be in a good position to sell that tech to the rest of the world. Building an industry like that teaches you how to build that kind of tech faster, cheaper, and better, something that you see consistently across history. A businessman would see the opportunity for what it was and jumped at the chance. But then, Trump is not a good businessman.

Quote
Government cashing in in the energy market.
Show me where any government would be directed to "crash in" on the energy market. At best, your own source would make it so that 8 trillion of our money would be earmarked for the first green company to set up a significant international trade in that tech, and it might as well be our own people if we get in on it fast enough. Any gold the government would give them would be to develop their production for an international market, which quite frankly is something they would want to do anyway, but with our own money in the pot it would be a great incentive to do so. Now the incentive is less because we don't have a stake in the pot.

I really don't get this near-allergic level aversion to government playing any part in helping the economy along.

Quote
Hey moron, Trump did not sign an order banning the development of green tech,
I know he didn't, idiot. He simply failed to recognize the opportunity to incentivise green tech through issuing what amounts to a moon challenge. In the beginning of the 60's, we didn't have the tech to go to the moon, and only had something like 15 minutes of manned spaceflight experience when Kennedy made his famous challenge. Nine years later we had beaten the Russians to the moon. It was because Kennedy had set the tone, had challenged the US to make the moon shot. Now, we see Trump shying away from the challenge of changing the world economy away from fossil fuels. It's short-sighted and chilling to the green industry to see that.

Quote
Those 'gogs' were placed by the founding fathers.
It's "cogs", and you're wrong. The cogs are the machinery that was developed after the founding fathers' time. Laws passed by congress are not specific enough to be actionable. It's really up to the execuative branch to figure out what it needs to do to make sure the laws are carried out. Hence, it creates the rules and procedures to make laws actionable and give them real force. It is not done by execuative order or any such rot. It is done by committee, with consultation of experts and the public and all interested parties to make sure all interests are served in execution of the law. They are categorically not Obama enacting "personal legislation".

Quote
Ah, no. Do not trivialize the accumulation of a billion dollars several times over. especially with something as trivial as the market.
"Trivial as the stock market"? :histerical: Any investment expert will tell you the stock market is one of the surest ways to make money, in the long run. But you have to be in it for the long run.

Quote
there are only 2000 people on the whole planet who have accomplished this feat. Again they do not give this money away. If you look at the list there is not one dumb person among them. You may not like them but that has nothing to do with intelligence. To attack a person's intelligence is a latent liberal's way to try and discredit a person without having to address any real substance.
Empty posturing. You have yet to support that charge. The above doesn't dismiss the fact that he still couldn't outperform the stock market — that I could do something extremely simple-minded and would have still beaten the pants off him. The above doesn't dismiss the fact that he drove six of his previous businesses into the ground. He's either had a charmed life, or has had good financial advisors that have kept his money safe.

And even if he was smart with money, it doesn't necessarily translate well into a realm where your performance is not judged by how much money you make like the presidency. And may be in fact frowned upon.

Quote
In essence it is a game dumb people play with each other so the can seem smarter in the presents of other game players.

Because in truth the only people concerned with how smart someone else is are teachers and stupid people who do not want to be found out.
Which puzzles me why Trump is so concerned about portraying himself as a smart person. Hmmm....

Quote
No. Again 2000 people with a billion or more. there are far more big businesses than just apple and google. what defines a big business is more than 100 million dollar per year in revenue.
Who cares about how much revenue defines a big business, with some arbitrary threshold? That's just debating semantics, and semantics debates are boring. The fact remains that Trump could have vanished five years ago and nobody would have noticed he was gone. Also, the fact that he has three billion in net worth doesn't mean that he has three billion in revenue. A simple calculation shows that, in the fifty someodd years he spent building that 3 billion (assuming net worth, assets minus debt) gives an average revenue of 60 million yearly... which means that he doesn't qualify as a big business by your own cited standard.

"Trump’s Taj Mahal opened in April 1990 in Atlantic City, but six months later, “defaulted on interest payments to bondholders as his finances went into a tailspin,” The Washington Post’s Robert O’Harrow found. In July 1991, Trump’s Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy. He could not keep up with debts on two other Atlantic City casinos, and those two properties declared bankruptcy in 1992. A fourth property, the Plaza Hotel in New York, declared bankruptcy in 1992 after amassing debt.

PolitiFact uncovered two more bankruptcies filed after 1992, totaling six. Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts filed for bankruptcy again in 2004, after accruing about $1.8 billion in debt. Trump Entertainment Resorts also declared bankruptcy in 2009, after being hit hard during the 2008 recession.

Why the discrepancy? Perhaps this will give us an idea: Trump told Washington Post reporters that he counted the first three bankruptcies as just one."

Donald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will "protect your job." But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.

The competency that people wanted in a president is different from the competency that Trump has so far demonstrated.
Not from those who voted for Him and do not source their information from the mainstream media. I think those of you who voted for Clinton want what you describes as a different level of competency... But you were also wrong about who was going to win and by how much. Which points back to where you source your information. If every poll leading up the election was wrong, and every newcast from the mainstream media was wrong about his win, then why do you blindly accept that the majority of the people want anything more from trump than what we Got???


Quote
Believe it or not, Trump is now our EMPLOYEE.
well, the majority of the electorate yes.

Quote
The electorate put him there to do a job, and Trump convinced enough of the right parts of that electorate that he was the best person for that job. But convincing people that he is the right person for the job and being the right person for the job are different things.
He has done and is on track in doing everything he promised despite what scott pelly thinks of Him.

Quote
You're simply trying to distract me from the competency that actually matters from the competency that got Trump into the white house.
No I am simply pointing out that if your information source said he was NOT competent enough to win the white house is also wrong when they evaluate his competency while in the white house. I am pointing to an obvious bias.

Actually i don't.
That is why I supported obama when He won, and did not riot in the streets, break windown or did an unwashed sit in. My belief is in the system and the ultimate balance we must strike between right and left to remain in the middle otherwise if it leans too far one way or too far the other way we will have civil war again. Trump is bringing balance back to the country by undoing the hard left crap barrack castro obama put us into.

Not if he doesn't have the support of the house or senate. look at what lame duck obama did when he didn't have the support needed to secure his legacy.. He issued one presidential order after another, which was all undone almost by the end of trumps first 100 days. I would say without the support of both houses of congress the president get's neturalized as per obama.

Quote
He can't even kill Obamacare, the thing he promised to do in his first 100 days.
Because as I pointed out he does not have both sides to agree on the replacement. we have only tried to repeal and replace at the same time. All side agree on the repeal. So trump held a luncheon yesterday urging congress to forgo their august break and get obama care replaced. Again because that power is not in his wheel house.

Quote
Not that this surprises me. Obamacare is simply the healthcare plan that the Republicans wished they passed.
:biglaugh: the "Dims" who passed the spearheaded obama care are now running from it like rats from a ship... why would you think the reps want anything to do with it?

with the congression support he had, he could of at the time.

Even so now he he keeps working on a simple repeal before the end of august.

Quote
He's failed that. GG.
That's odd. I thought Obamacare was PASSED in congress, and still is the law of the land.
no it was an exectuitive order later ratified by the supreme court as being 'legal' and now needs an act of congress to repeal (which ultimately means a defunding of Obama care.)

Because rather than deny, they defend their actions. (burning servers drilling out hard drives, and the Anthony wiener back up lap top confirmed many of the deals made that wiki-leaks (the ones the Russians supposedly used to air out Clinton's dirty laundry. which the owner of wikileaks said it was a clinton insider (which one committed suicide by shooting himself in the back 6 times died shortly there after.) The clinto stuff the unrainium 1 deal where she made 147 million dollars by colluding with the russians to sell them 25% of our stock pile is a well documented deal she did while secetary of state that benfitted her foundation. There is no dispute there. but why not???
even the ny times soft balled this story:
https://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/24/us/cash-flowed-to-clinton-foundation-as-russians-pressed-for-control-of-uranium-company.html

Russian collusion to buy north american unraium stockpiles while cashing in a secretary of state. That is an act of treason, and if it were anyone else they would be in gitmo with the rest of the terrorists.

I did not say the tpp was the reason for the jobs that left went. The reason the jobs that left went (the big/yuge companies) could save billions via cheap labor and minimal shipping costs in return. That's a done deal. what is left on the table are the intermediate companies and even some of the larger small companies have trillions left on the trade table that would then also go overseas as raw material and logistic sourcing all consolidates and with this treaty becomes cheaper than doing anything here. It is a one way turn the US into a consumer only country deal.

I think about them, and make the ideas my own, if they're worth anything. It is simply bizzare to think that a treaty that had not been signed into law caused the migrations of jobs overseas, a phenomena that had been happening for decades prior. It just doesn't work as an example of good reasoning.
The reason we have manufacturing at all right now on any large scale is because of the few restrictions in place on shipping/trade taxes. take that away and it becomes a no brainer for those left. it was a no brainer when you had 500 workers doing a union job for 40 bucks an hour when when kim jung will do the same job for 7 dollars a week plus transports and fees. take that last barrier away and everything else now goes.

Quote
You seem to be envisioning that we're shelling out money into some black hole if we were to comply with the accords. We're not. We're going to be paying that money to workers to change the basis of our economy away from dirty technologies. All that money is going into the US economy. That's the thing Trump doesn't understand. What you don't understand.
Ah... no. We will be paying foreign governements to convert to 'green' based on their word... Now if you are a forgein leader and get paid in donkeys then the US writes you a billion dollar check and says with no oversite buy wind generators for your people... I say the US writes you a check because no other country is involved aside from support. China won't even support this accord. till 5 more years has elapsed. meaning they refuse to make or consider any climate changes. And because China is not the worlds industrial base, it becomes the world biggest polluter. so from a carbon emission standpoint what does it matter.. unless money from the US is the actual prize.


Quote
Do you? I've read the damn thing. You know, what it actually says instead of the lies your sources feed you. There's no mention in the accord of specific targets. The US is allowed to be as pessimistic as he wants as to its targets, though that might piss off the other signatories. There's also no means of enforcement. It's non-binding. It's simply a promisary note.
And again if we do not intend to honor the note, why sign?

You know there are only two countries who did not sign the US and honduras. They did not sign because they felt they were not going to get enough money fro the us to impliment what they were required in green retrofit.

Quote
Let's for the sake of argument assume that the above is true. Who's going to be selling them that green tech?
China as they are the world's leader in production of wind gens and solar cells.

Quote
Thanks to Trump, not us.

Quote
If we played our cards right, we could get all that money back and then some, and we would be in a good position to sell that tech to the rest of the world.
where do you come up with this crap... it's like you read nothing, listen to no one except npr and will not take a bit of info unless it passes your indoctrination.

Quote
Building an industry like that teaches you how to build that kind of tech faster, cheaper, and better, something that you see consistently across history. A businessman would see the opportunity for what it was and jumped at the chance. But then, Trump is not a good businessman.
A businessman also knows where to focus his efforts. like in coal something this country has billions of tons of..

Quote
Show me where any government would be directed to "crash in" on the energy market. At best, your own source would make it so that 8 trillion of our money would be earmarked for the first green company to set up a significant international trade in that tech, and it might as well be our own people if we get in on it fast enough. Any gold the government would give them would be to develop their production for an international market, which quite frankly is something they would want to do anyway, but with our own money in the pot it would be a great incentive to do so. Now the incentive is less because we don't have a stake in the pot.
and where does the US source this 8 trillion dollars? before your trickle down economics has a chance to back fill all of our coffers?

Quote
I really don't get this near-allergic level aversion to government playing any part in helping the economy along.
I know he didn't, idiot. He simply failed to recognize the opportunity to incentivise green tech through issuing what amounts to a moon challenge. In the beginning of the 60's, we didn't have the tech to go to the moon, and only had something like 15 minutes of manned spaceflight experience when Kennedy made his famous challenge. Nine years later we had beaten the Russians to the moon. It was because Kennedy had set the tone, had challenged the US to make the moon shot. Now, we see Trump shying away from the challenge of changing the world economy away from fossil fuels. It's short-sighted and chilling to the green industry to see that.
At what cost... And subsquently, who else could afford to Go? Meaning at the end of 10 years we have a perfect sustainable alternitive energy source... but at what cost and who else could afford it? so then unless we are giving away trips to the moon what good will this technology do? it is about as functional as the cern super collider.

Quote
It's "cogs", and you're wrong. The cogs are the machinery that was developed after the founding fathers' time. Laws passed by congress are not specific enough to be actionable.
citation please.

Quote
It's really up to the execuative branch to figure out what it needs to do to make sure the laws are carried out. Hence, it creates the rules and procedures to make laws actionable and give them real force. It is not done by execuative order or any such rot. It is done by committee, with consultation of experts and the public and all interested parties to make sure all interests are served in execution of the law. They are categorically not Obama enacting "personal legislation".
again too far. A cog of the presidency has nothing to do with the president. it is an automactic function of the government. the president is simply at the right place at the right time. What you are describing are the legacy factors of the president. that is not what I am describing. What I am describing comes from the congress and senate as well as the SCOTUS. These bills, budgets and laws are passed all the time without input or alteration from the president. that is a cog of governement.

Empty posturing. You have yet to support that charge. The above doesn't dismiss the fact that he still couldn't outperform the stock market — that I could do something extremely simple-minded and would have still beaten the pants off him.

He's either had a charmed life, or has had good financial advisers that have kept his money safe.

And even if he was smart with money, it doesn't necessarily translate well into a realm where your performance is not judged by how much money you make like the presidency. And may be in fact frowned upon.
Are you serious?!?!?! What is GDP? without it what happens to the country. How much GDP growth happend under o-bammie? >2% 1/2 of every president's worst GDP numbers that came before him. Without a strong business sense of someone in the higher ups, this government would quickly fail.
How much better to have a sucessful business man to run this country and take back what others have given away.

Quote
Which puzzles me why Trump is so concerned about portraying himself as a smart person. Hmmm....
why do you?

Quote
Who cares about how much revenue defines a big business, with some arbitrary threshold?
because stupid people would then say a billionare's company is considered to be a small business.

Quote
That's just debating semantics, and semantics debates are boring.
Actually semantics literally define our world, if you can not regulate your speech to fit commonly accepted definations then you setting everyone up for an arguement.

Quote
The fact remains that Trump could have vanished five years ago and nobody would have noticed he was gone.
i disagree, billionares do not disappear and no one notices.

Quote
Also, the fact that he has three billion in net worth doesn't mean that he has three billion in revenue.

not a trivial amount of money no matter how you divide it.

Quote
A simple calculation shows that, in the fifty someodd years he spent building that 3 billion (assuming net worth, assets minus debt) gives an average revenue of 60 million yearly... which means that he doesn't qualify as a big business by your own cited standard.
Funny. But that's not what I meant and you know it.
he was worth 4.5 billion last year, he lost 800 million in the campaign yet he did not care as His life was going to be about america from then on out. Meanwhile clinton made nearly 250 million dollars in her run.
how does that work exactly?

Regaurdless his net worth has fluctuated from bankruptcy to 11.8 billion to where it is today. your simplistic calculation does not take into effect everything that trump has made and lost.
Quote


"Trump’s Taj Mahal opened in April 1990 in Atlantic City, but six months later, “defaulted on interest payments to bondholders as his finances went into a tailspin,” The Washington Post’s Robert O’Harrow found. In July 1991, Trump’s Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy. He could not keep up with debts on two other Atlantic City casinos, and those two properties declared bankruptcy in 1992. A fourth property, the Plaza Hotel in New York, declared bankruptcy in 1992 after amassing debt.

PolitiFact uncovered two more bankruptcies filed after 1992, totaling six. Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts filed for bankruptcy again in 2004, after accruing about $1.8 billion in debt. Trump Entertainment Resorts also declared bankruptcy in 2009, after being hit hard during the 2008 recession.

Why the discrepancy? Perhaps this will give us an idea: Trump told Washington Post reporters that he counted the first three bankruptcies as just one."

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

I am so tempted to put a picture of Count Von Count here. Ah-ah-ah!
The fact remains, they are not his holdings. They are not administered by him. They are not indicative of his net worth or his ability to make money.
Which "King David had to build a temple out of obligation," is a fair description of. Unless you meant, "King David laid every stone of the temple himself," which of course is stupid.
Yeah, and I have a google that turned up the following gem:

Donald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will "protect your job." But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.

I think I can tell you how different it would have been, since I did go that route.

playin catchup again....

"Obamacare" - Patient protection and affordable care act of 2010 was a law passed by Congress not an executive order.

Obama didn't get to sign TPP because the majority of the D party were opposed to it (I downloaded it to read it, but never got around to it. don't know what's in it)

To be more explicit, no one becomes a billionaire without stealing from their customers or their employees.

Drich can think what he wants of the Ds. My own opinion is that the rank and file of the R party are drooling idiots and the leaders are devil worshipers; even when I was still in church. You have to be a split-personality to be a Christian and a Republican at the same time with such conflicting ideologies.

My family has been at least agnostic back to my paternal grandparents (my maternal ones weren't).  I simply extended the idea to the logical conclusion.  It did help that the more religious some few relatives were, the dumber they were about nearly everything else in life, too.
