    Considering Oregon lost more than 20,000 people to pot from murders, stoned driving, domestic violence from it’s last legalization, there’s few things scarier than the fools now wanting to make it legal again.

    In the 24 years of “decrininalization” from 1973-1997, Portland went from ~100 homicides to more than 1000 by 1995.

    You have idiots claiming “marijuana doesn’t make you violent” despite the typical 10X increase in violent crime that results.

    Pt .2

    “I guess you can play fast and loose with name accuracy if you are a anthropologist— anthropologists kept writing about the “land bridge” theory long after the archeological evidence indicated a multitude of routes to the Americas. If you want to be accurate, how about Copper Age, Brass Age, Copper-Arsenic Age or just call all of them the Age of Copper Alloys?”

  • October 22, 2014 at 1:39am

    One bit of interest is that the anthropological term “bronze age” is almost completely in error. I wrote this up for National Wave of Foolishness:

    “We have had various ages that are named after materials like Iron or Stone. Some names are wildly inaccurate, such as “The Bronze Age.” If I may chase a rabbit for a moment, I’ll explain that. Tin is required for bronze and tin is found only in a handful of locations of the world in quantity and until the 20th Century almost all tin came from deposits in Cornwall. Much of what is called “bronze” by anthropologists is actually brass or other alloys of copper. Zinc and copper ores frequently occur together, so it was a natural mix. Some ancient foundry equipment could theoretically separate the two metals when the ore was smelted, but why would you want to, given the uses like cups, containers, knives and swords that brass could be used for, which is typically both harder and durable than straight copper? Sulfides are common ores for copper, but also for zinc, lead, antimony, and other metals. If you are a worker in an ancient foundry with such mixed ore, wouldn’t you just use the resulting alloy once it was smelted, vs. trying to separate the individual metals out to get copper. (Unless it was a case like refining silver or gold for purity, which is for a different reason than using a metal for functionality/utility.) I guess you can play fast and loose with name accuracy if you are a anthropologist…”

    I think Godrulz is being sarcastic about how many fools try to disprove the Bible, but the Bible itself is backed up by the science of archaeology itself.

    More than 95% of the locations mentioned in the Bible have been found.

    Christ predicted the fall of Herod’s Temple. In that sense, this is germane to the Bible.

  • October 22, 2014 at 1:30am

    The chief priests, teachers of the law, scribes, etc. saw Christ as a threat. He threatened their power, their incredible wealth, etc. These men knew they were doing wrong, but they loved their power and money.

    They also were wanting the “conquering king” messiah that would liberate them from Rome and rule the world.

    There are two pictures of the Messiah in the old testament. One is the “suffering servant”. The other is the “conquering king.”

    The pharisees, sadducees, etc. wanted the latter, and hated the “suffering servant” Messiah. They wanted power and gold, not to be told they were sinners and to repent. Pride was very much part of the equation.

    In John 8, we are shown just how hard-hearted some of these leaders of the time were. (It says something that Rome considered the Jewish leaders ruthless.) From the context, it appears that some of the leaders set up a situation where they “caught” and adultress (where was the guy? Was he allowed to escape?) These fiends apparently didn’t care if a woman was stoned in their desire to make Christ look bad.

    I’ve put a lot of time into trying to answer some of this stuff. I’ve put a lot of it on my website: http://www.holodiscustechnical.com

    The explanation is in Daniel 2 itself “40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron—for iron breaks and smashes everything—and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. 41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. 42 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. 43 And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.”

    It would be the Fifth. Reich means “kingdom” or “empire.”

    The First Reich was Bismarck’s unification of the German and Prussian states. (The song Germany Over All comes from this period, meaning that Germans should have a Germany that is larger than the individual German states.)

    The Second Reich was the Weimar Republic that was created after Kaiser Wilhelm II’s abdication and exile.

    The Third Reich was the 1930s-45 Germany and its conquered territories.

    The Fourth Reich is the current German representative republic.

    And so the nazi/democrat party creating a new one would have to be at least the Fifth Reich.

    It’s the same time of problem with names as the Jerusalem Temple. People call it the Third temple in Revelation, but that is completely wrong. Solomon built the First Temple. Zerubbabel rebuilt it as the Second Temple. King Herod destroyed the Second Temple, even going so far as to level part of the Temple Mount and replacing the entire foundation. This Third Temple wasn’t even complete when Rome sacked it.

    The Antichrist will allow Israel to build the Fourth Temple that is spoken of in the Tribulation.

    Ezekiel describes a Fifth Temple during the Millennium.

    All it does is add to the body of knowledge we have. Inscriptions indicating the Tenth Legion’s presence have already been found in Jerusalem.

  • [5] October 22, 2014 at 12:57am

    Yes.

    I don’t accept most “history” that was “written” from the 1990s on. Nazis/Communists rewriting history. Take Ken Burn’s Prohibition. Much of it was flat wrong, and the entire thing appeared to be an advertisement for pot.

    History has traditionally been written for different reasons:
    1. Someone wanting to record events. Photographer Matthew Brady hired a mess of crews to record the Civil War. Flavius Josephus recorded enormous volumes of history. So did many other writers like Herodotus.
    2. Someone wanting to lie about history in order to deceive. The modern socialist “historians” from the 1990s on are the archtypes. Mojo-man’s ideas fall into this category. The mainstream media engages in this type of lie every day.
    3. A person at a given place and time that realizes something that has happened should be written down.
    4. To educate and thus avoid future mistakes. Doesn’t seem to work, though.
    The Democrats have adopted almost all of the characteristics of the national socialists of Germany, Austria, Finland, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria, and Albania, but few are willing to call them what they are— the modern Nazi party.

    Technically, the Byzantine Empire was the half of the Roman Empire that survived.

    One of the more interesting bits of prophecy is that the multi-metal statue that Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream in the book of Daniel had two iron legs. Iron represented the Roman Empire, and it was split into two fractions, the western empire falling with the eastern empire lasting several hundred years longer.

    Daniel 2:32-33 “32 The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay”

    Phase II of Rome is described in Daniel and Revelation.

    e.g. Revelation 17:9 “9 “This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. ”

    Rome was known in the ancient world as the city on 7 hills.

    re: mojo-man

    why do you even bother to comment? All you end up doing is trying to push a false view of history through the lens of anti-semitism. Your hate-filled comments do not add anything positive to this forum.

    pt 3

    “Unfortunately, that was the normal situation for the GenX women in Oregon who grew up in the church— they knew how to be saved, but they “wanted to have fun,” and so almost all of them left the church in junior high or early high school for the party/drink/drugs/fornication scene. The prevailing attitude was “who cares about God: there’s a party tonight and wow, I can get laid!” Perhaps they will get saved some day, and one can hope that they do get saved, but at some point the Lord is going to come back, and for some of them, they might be caught short when the Rapture happens. Depending on when the Lord returns, some of them may well have died before then from old age, drug overdoses, disease, car accidents, etc., in an unsaved condition, thinking they had “all the time in the world.” You can’t count on having endless time to get saved— if you are endlessly putting it off to “have your fun,” you are likely to end up in hell. “

    pt. 2

    “49 and may begin to beat the fellow-servants, and to eat and to drink with the drunken,

    50 the lord of that servant will arrive in a day when he doth not expect, and in an hour of which he doth not know,

    51and will cut him off, and his portion with the hypocrites will appoint; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth. — Mathew 24:45-51 (YLT)

    Sadly, I’ve known many persons who grew up in the church who fitted the example of the person in verses 48 to 51 in the Mathew 24:45-51 parable of the wise and foolish servants, i.e. they were persons who knew the truth, they knew how to get saved and could have chosen to be saved at any time, but never seemed to “get around” to getting saved, figuring to “have fun” for a time and then to get saved at the last moment. Or it otherwise wasn’t important to them to get saved, even though they knew how. Playing with fire. They knew who the Lord they should be serving was, but “having fun” was more important to them.

    Imagine being one of those who “never got around to getting saved” when the Rapture happens!

    Verses Matthew 24:48-51 could be the mantra of GenX women in the Pacific Northwest who grew up in the church, but never got saved. “Fun” was more important to them than getting saved.

    Unfortunately, that was the normal situation for the GenX women in Oregon who grew up in the church— they knew how to be saved, but they “wanted to have fun,” “

    Understandable, but I don’t wish an eternity in the Lake of Fire on anyone.

    We like to joke about it, but there is no way to even understand the horror of being punished for one’s sins for an eternity.

    One can perhaps understand fools that made their Faustian deal like Hitler or the Clintons, in order to have power and money in this world (even though nothing is worth spending eternity french-fried), but what about the idiot who never gets Saved because they like their drugs more or their lifestyle more. Somehow, it just seems plain stupid to throw everything away for such trifles.

    As an example, one of the greatest frustrations of my life is that, because almost every woman my age abandoned the church in order to party, fornicate, do drugs, etc., that they threw away eternity to feed their appetites.

    Now, that’s truly stupid.

    I wrote this up as part of a dissertation on Salvation at http://www.holodiscustechnical.com/documents/salvation.htmlhttp://www.holodiscustechnical.com/documents/salvation.html while quoting heavily from Scripture:

    “45 `Who, then, is the servant, faithful and wise, whom his lord did set over his household, to give them the nourishment in season?

    46 Happy that servant, whom his lord, having come, shall find doing so;

    47 verily I say to you, that over all his substance he will set him.

    48 `And, if that evil servant may say in his heart, My Lord doth delay to come,

    Glen Beck is in the position of having grown up in the Mormon church, but some years had to come to the end of himself and be Saved by Jesus Christ. Despite believing the Bible, he still clings to some of his cultic beginnings.

    It comes out in his defense of the early Mormon church despite the horrible things the early Mormon church did to the people around them. Mountain Meadows was just the worst event. Danites terrorized people in the midwest, killing and burning. Until the late 1800s, mormons were encouraged to steal, lie, and swindle.

    One of Brigham Young’s nastiest comments was “the best thing you can do for a Gentile is to kill him.” Not exactly a prophet of the Bible, was Young?

    Eventually, Beck will either have to embrace the truth completely, or he will continue to be frustrated by the falsity of Mormon ideas vs. the Word of God that is the Bible.

    One thing that is almost unique to the Mormon cult is that in the late 1800s, they decided to clean themselves up, changing directions almost completely. They taught being good to others and by the 1950s, the most upstanding and honest people in western communities were typically mormons.

    I wish our black, mexican, and indian minorities would do the same thing.

    Unfortunately, it’s a veneer. While mormons today have many admirable qualities, they are still in rebellion against God.

    Getting Saved is more important than anything else for a person.

    Absolutely.

    Junior high and high school were pure hell for most guys in the 1980s in the Pacific Northwest. The feminists were teaching the girls all sorts of antisocial stuff and as a result, if you were a guy, you were constantly under attack, in one form or another.

    Attacked for morals, attacked for wearing the “wrong” clothes, attacked for just existing. People of high IQs got it for being “nerds”/”squids”. Christian guys were attacked for everything under the sun, mainly because they made the girls feel guilty for the girls abandoning the church and abandoning personal morality.

    After 7 years of that, most guys had retreated to outdoors activites (which the women had no interest in at all, unlike GenY women), sports, and other activities where they wouldn’t be around the women and thus subject to attack.

    Wasn’t until I went to Oregon Tech that I found myself in my own element and came out of my shell.

    No, I don’t think you can say public school is good for socializing. Even the popular kids usually ended up being messed up for life. Many of them ended up in jail for drug-dealing and drug-related crimes like homicide and manslaughter.

    Last major public works was the American River Dam System in the 1990s.

    The last thing the UN did right was the elimination campaign of smallpox in the early 1970s.

    When an organization of any kind hasn’t done something well for decades, that organization needs to be dismantled and rebuilt from the ground up.

    Clinton screwed up the government in 1993 by waiving qualifications for federal civil service for minorities and women, packing the government with amateurs who couldn’t do their jobs. Right now we have oodles of retired people who actually did the job right. Fire everyone who was hired from 1993 on, rehire the old folks who came up under the merit system, and rebuild it from the ground up.

    The UN should be dismantled completely and only representative republics and representative democracies allowed to join. Right now the largest blocs are the Third World sponges and the Islamic mayhem bloc.

    “God is not afraid of new things!” Bible doctrines that are 2000 to 4000 years old are not new.

    Vatican II got the Catholic church to start reading the Bible seriously again, discarding many creeds of men/traditions that had crept in over the years.

    Despite the reforms, the Catholic church still is in rebellion against God in several things. The Bible requires church officers to be married, for example (elders and deacons). The Catholic church teaches the opposite, and has thus left its priests and other officials open to increased risk of committing sexual sins.

    The Catholic church can’t go wrong if they go by the Bible. The Bible values family greatly.

    The Bible calls homosexuality, fornication, adultery, and other outside-of-marriage sex sins. They hurt the people who practice them and they hurt those around those who practice them. A look at the STD rates and violence rates in homosexuals makes that clear. If that were not enough, the 50% increase in rapes in the military by LGBTs in the last year indicates how the LGBTs consider other people as things to be used. Our school districts are encountering the same things when their administrators push a LGBT can do no wrong policy.
