"I note you yet again dodged my questions"


Did you miss my first response? It is immediately under your posted question...

[Edit] The fact that it states "Israel and Judah" should clue us that it wasn't written by David, but is more likely a later redaction following the split between Israel and Judah.

@Allan

With a little help from Reed I was able to find out where you're posting at Amazon now and under what name. I asked her specifically not to post your new screen name on the Pub thread, with mega-trolls lurking around and all. So she emailed it to me. Finding the thread took a little doing, but I finally did.

I only had a quick look, but you and CMS seem to have something really interesting going on about the names of God--El Elyon, Shaddai, YHVH, Tsvaoth (my transliterations), etc.

I thought I posted a note to CMS suggesting we start a topic here on that subject or a related one. I'm now reading the topic again and can't find the note I thought I posted. Maybe I started writing it and didn't get it finished or posted.

I still think it would be a good idea to start a topic here on one of the subjects being discussed on that thread. I'm not volunteering to start it tonight though. Smile   :)

The whole thing is a schemozzle so far as I am concerned, and I thought Robb hit it nicely when she confidently predicted in 2017 something which she said was going to happen in the 1980s.

First we are told God is angry with Israel -- no reason given -- THEN we are told he conned David into the census. Clearly this was made up after the event to explain the plague.

Your valid point adds nicely to that.

That's not me on Amazon; still haven't managed to get a new email address so I can order a book or three.

I like your idea, so will leave it up to you.

@Allan:

I see you haven't quite gotten the hang of replying to a post on Aantares yet. In some ways it's easier than replying to a post on Amazon because the reply window uses basic HTML code, while on Amazon OTOH you are limited to plain text. It's not difficult, but there are a few tricks you need to know first.

I had a hard time finding your actual reply to my last post, because what you wrote is in the quote box, sandwiched in between the last two paragraphs of my post, which you were quoting.H

You obviously hit the reply button at the bottom of my post, which is what you should do if you're quoting the whole thing. But if you do that, be sure to type your reply AFTER the final HTML quote symbol. It looks like this in the reply window: [/QUOTE] Then hit ENTER once and continue with whatever you want to say.

If you type your reply immediately after the lines you're replying to but before the final [/QUOTE] symbol, it ends up within the quote box like yours did. That can be very confusing!

You didn't need my last paragraph or my signature, since you were only replying to the first part of my post. So you should have highlighted and deleted them while you were still in the reply window. That's what I just did here.

Like I said, it is really easy to say something will happen when it has already happened. Or some natural disaster is god being mad at some person or area. Or just testing you if you get caught in it. Winter  :winter:

IIRC, the original concept behind the word prophecy was not limited to future prediction. It also included revelation/explanation of a current or past event.

A: I can only decide cases as they come to me litigated by parties on a full record after fully engaging precedent, talking to colleagues, writing an opinion, and so I can't answer hypothetical questions like that.

I'm pretty close to that. This group from Amazon is very diverse. Some are Christians, some are Jewish, at least two are Panentheists, and at least one atheist. I was a Fundie Christian for over 30 years but have abandoned that completely. We all usually get along fairly well too.

Don't worry, God won't hold you responsible for not believing in yourself.

Okay, fine. I have been a member of Aant from the very beginning. I only rarely post on the Religion & Spirituality forum.

Welcome.
