Re: Wombaticus Orgiaticus

Yay, I'm back on here at last :) Thanks for your efforts, Apollos. This site is the last bastion. Hi Lynchpin and all, Thank you for your patience while I sorted out the security certificate. I should give special thanks to Bobcat for being alert at the helm :) I'm trying to put in place an auto-re...

Re: Does Covid 19 even exist?

It's food for thought, but how much is rational and/or reasonable? Yes, Covid-19 exists. On that I am as willing to hang my hat. I have family members who have had it and I have seen the effects. I have colleagues who have had family members test positive and then die. It would be very offensive to ...

Re: Languages are a blessing not a curse

Hi Bobcat

Did I spell his name wrong. Either way I think it might stick :D

Dear CI

No, this is nothing new. I remember being raised to believe that Babel was a curse. It never sat right with me.

Re: Interesting Stuff

Hi Bobcat - that assessment was very astute I think. A single apology could earn them so much credit from many people, but you can sense how painful it would be for them to cross that line. This month in JW broadcasting they again double down on their scare tactics - especially relating to the minds...

Languages are a blessing not a curse

In this month's JW broadcasting Bro Malificent reinforces the point that what happened at Babel was God causing confusion among humans and that it is a process to be corrected. He acknowledges that language is connected to our thought processes (which is the first time I've heard them say that). Her...

Re: Is Belief in God Logical and/or Scientific?

Every day I notice the dogs that don’t bark. Hi Daniel If I ever get around to writing my novel or non-fiction work I'm asking permission to use this quote :) It really feels to me as if there is a kind of strange dualism going on. I don't disagree with a word you wrote, yet there are other variabl...

Re: Corona-Virus :Another World Plague?

Hi John & all I am concerned about the virus to what I consider to be a reasonable degree. I try to "keep on the watch" while at the same time trying to keep firmly in mind Jesus' words when he told us as Christians throughout history not to be alarmed/terrified when we see such things occurring. (M...

Re: The Resurrection of Lazarus - Gospel Records

Hi Bobcat and Vox Thanks very much for the replies. In both cases it would cause us to take a more "liberal" view of scripture compared to "every word is inspired". I'm inclined to think that it avers a verbal plenary theory of inspiration and wavers a dictation theory. I think I'm finding this chal...

Hi Apollos,

This one is just for public record. It's called the resurrection of Apollos.

Here's what it looks like :D

Hi Bruno

The news of my death was greatly exaggerated (Mark Twain) ;)
