I'm saving money on Amazon with the interesting people gone who recommended good books and ideas.



I'm trying to read "The Invention of the Bible and Talmuds" by Donald Akenson. But after reading Barker, I'm finding it a bit of a 'dry' read.

And...I haven't ordered a single book since I got banned. Not that I need any, mind you. I have plenty that I haven't gotten around to yet. But that forum was a money maker for them while we were there simply because of the number of books we bought.



I just messed up a post to Linda. Oh, well.. Hey, that sounds like a good title. Too bad it is dry. I'll have to see if I can read some of it on Google.

You are good friends with Barker, right? Wink   ;) Where is she hiding Mother of the Lord volume 2 ?

Not that I have gotten through every page of Volume one... Just enough to be dangerous. 8)


LOL, I look for Volume II at least once a month!

I really do hope she will publish it, but she is well into her 80s and may not be quite up to it these days...:-( That would really break my heart 'cause I'm so looking forward to it.

Akenson has nothing on Barker. It was so dry I needed a gallon of iced tea to get it down.

I take it you've read Barker's paper on Hezekiah's Boil?

That's a great association of images...went right past me at first! Very creative and original.

Allan: Did you see my post on the Rainbow Serpent and the eruptions which caused the caldera lakes on the Atherton Tableland?

Geologically established, those eruptions some 15,000 years ago led EXACTLY to the same type of mythology we see related to the Bible's much-later Sodom and Gomorrah mythology.

A while ago, but recently her paper on the 4th servant's song. She discusses the boil and the plague. The Chabad.org Bible on Isaiah 53 uses plague for the servant.

Hmmm, IIRC, Chabad uses the MS (redacted text)?

I would go with the LXX...

And if you are so inclined, The Older Testament by Barker is a great reference as to much of what was redacted.

Troll Smackdown of the Day: This happened yesterday afternoon (since it's now after midnight) in the original pub on Amazon. I'm very proud of this one, even though nobody else posting on the thread seemed to notice.

DLM: Another way to look at it is; that without those "trolls" in the Posse, you would have no way to increase your understanding, love and longsuffering.

They are particularly hard people to love, but "only love can break their hearts, and only love can mend them."

Linda: Sounds like a misplaced effort to me. It seems to me the Posse is too far gone to be mended by love, but even if it's (theoretically) possible, there are other people who are also hard to love, but are much more worth the effort than a pack of howling brainwashed trolls.

One obvious example: the homeless people in my neighborhood--and we have a lot of them here. As soon as some of the domestic chaos I'm currently dealing with settles down, that's one area where I intend to focus my efforts. Someone else with more compassion to spare can waste it on the Posse if they so desire. I am emphatically NOT interested!

Born-Again Troll: You sound like Libby and JR all rolled into one. I am sure your "Christian" heart can withstand so much "love"

Linda: I don't recall who Libby is, but JR is a good friend of mine. I take it as a compliment if I sound like her.

And just for the record--I am not a Christian, Bubbaleh.

If anyone wants to read the exchange in context, it's here.

Reading the original was enough thanks you very much. I have read their posts for way too long now and still face palm the hubris of their posting. We have "special knowledge" because "we" are born again and all you others are just fake born agains. We never brag ... You have thin skins and then they turn around and report the least little offense against them.

Then there is their why do you come to "our threads" and bother us and turn around and do the exact same thing to other threads.

I can only feel sorry for them.

Robb,

They keep saying over and over again that "the Holy Spirit" gives them understanding of "The Truth" and of Scripture, and they have to keep saying it over and over again in the vain hope that someone somewhere will take their word for it. What else do they have?

Other Christians have tried repeatedly to explain to them what the fruits of the Spirit are, and have no doubt tried to show them that their behavior in no way corresponds to any of them. Quite the opposite--it is so repulsive that most people put them on ignore sooner or later. Or else they just laugh at them, which drives all trolls bonkers!!! The same goes for "their father the Devil," or so I've heard.

To my knowledge, neither of these two mega-trolls has ever converted anyone in their five years of posting on Amazon. Sure, they may attract a few groupies to their "Amen corner," but that's about it. Those would be people who were converted through fear (i.e. brainwashed) years ago, either by their fundamentalist families or by a TV preacher, etc. So they really don't count.

Deep inside, they have to know they are ineffective. I see their escalating efforts at disruption and destruction as confessions of failure. Since they are incapable of creating anything positive, incapable of manifesting any of the fruits of the Spirit, the only "accomplishments" left to them are destructive ones.

--Linda

They have certainly been told enough times that they are poster children for driving people away from this christian jesusgod that they worship. I almost think they think they are the ones showing love and concern vs actually showing bitterness and intolerance.


So if you are not christian, do you have a "label"?

Hi
How are you doing? That shoulder any better?

I have a new treatment now to get rid of the weeping of my foot. It seems to be working. I have to put on a gel then cream and then the bands to help remove water. Best thing is I get to shower every day now. At last.
