Not to mention, Link is both an Incel Tears user and doesn't know what an incel is. I feel like that's also worth noting.

Link must be a rather confused young man. "What is this, how did I get here, I'm not good at computers"

Preaching and Worship / Re: More proof that Christianity is true.

1. Thank you Jacob, you've just contended that the bible is wrong about something. Nowhere in the bible does it say that the flood was confined to a specific geographic region and Genesis 6:7 has Yahweh say he'll destroy humankind from the face of the Earth, period. If what you contend is true, then the bible must be false. Thanks, it's easier when you do my work for me, ta.

2. So are eye-gouging, spitting, kicks to the balls and sneak attacks - still cheating. He couldn't overpower him so he resorted to magic. That's cheating.


3. You want to impress people, the most rational and justified path involves child murder, plague and making an entire ethnic group refugees? And you have infinite power and resources? No, it just isn't.

And we're back to debating the minutia of the wholly babble because that's your safe zone even though you suck at it. You'd much rather do that than articulate precisely what your understanding of ethics is because divine command types like yourself inevitably starts popping out absurdities. Your cosplaying at natural law ethics isn't very convincing either as your understanding of what's rational is way off base.

1. Kol, the Hebrew word for Earth can also mean land, country, or ground so it does not have to refer to the entire planet.

2. Ancient wrestling did not have the rules that modern day wrestling has.

3. But it is a rational and justified punishment of the Egyptians for enslaving the Israelites.

Race to watch: West Virginia's 3rd Congressional district.

Trump won it by forty-nine points.

The Cook PVI on the district is R+23.

The Democratic candidate is running a hard populist left, anti-corruption campaign--one of his ads called out both Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell as having sold out West Virginians. Another specifically shamed his opponent by name for attacking his military record when he's a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and she's a millionaire.

The polling in the district is a statistical dead heat. (538's Lite--polls-only--forecast has it as a toss-up.)

If that can flip a district that's R+23, that can work anywhere.

Politics and Government / Re: Are we living in a Conservative Era?

If by conservatism, you mean prioritising the interests of the elites over the rest of society, that's easy. Between campaigning being impossible without huge sums of money to throw around, and lobbyists being a thing, it's incredibly difficult for anyone not corrupt to have even the slightest chance of getting elected. Add in media that is wholly owned and therefore run in the interests of said elites further stacking the deck against non-corrupt politicians and it's hardly surprising things are so fucked Stateside.

As a crude simplification you can look at the situation since the end of the cold war as the right winning on the economical front and the left winning on the cultural front. Both situations have caused a hegemony in their respective spheres where even center left has been promoting the interests of capital instead of labor and the center right has at least given lip service to minority rights and even the more conservative elements have had to use dog whistles instead of direct racism/sexism/etc. These hegemonies are now breaking and there is a backlash against both.

To me it sounds like the conservatives in the US live in an alternative reality built by the talk radio, Fox News and more lately ultra-conservative new media. While Obama and both Clintons are typical products of these hegemonies the propaganda machine has built them as radical socialist threats to the 'Murrican way of life.

1. Not the stated reason, the stated reason was in the verse I cited, chapter and verse citation pls. Also, the bible says nothing about it being confined to one geographic region. Chapter and verse citation for this contention if you don't mind.

2. It's still cheating. If a match organiser enters the ring for a boxing bout and shoots the other contestant in the leg because he didn't take a fall he only demonstrates his power and cheats. The two are not mutually exclusive.

3. Merlot and mudfish, produced from thin air, works just as well, just ask Jesus.

1. Yes them being violent was the reason for the flood, and I was saying that they were violent against the non Nephillim because they were Nephilim. The flood has to be local because there is no geological evidence of a global flood.

2. But a gun is not a demonstration of physical strength because it is an extra aiding object. God displayed his physical strength.

3. But God wanted to show off his power to punish the Egyptians for enslaving the Israelites in the first place.

No Jacob - I'm busy and I broke a toe wandering around in the dark last week, so I've been dealing with that, work, and other obligations.
