  1. Yes, AND a retarded one at THAT!!!
  2. Interesting. The overhead cameras do not appear in the bottom video. Jump off capsules are different, too. Here is a video to show the deceptive photography used to depict a flat earth. The sun distorts in shape when approaching the edge of the camera field of vision. There is also a very slight rise in the horizon at the edges. The original video shows a curved antenna that if was videoed with a camera portraying a straight antenna, the horizon would be curved indicating a spherical (geoidal) earth. The video as well shows a slight rise in the horizon at the edges. Unfortunate the flat earth hoax is being perpetrated on people. Entertainment - Yes, of course. Reality - No, absolutely NOT!!! Mostly like WWE. Pure theatrical fiction. Massive entertainment following.
  3. Well, OK, a little "peppy" HERE to ease the passing.........................................................
  4. Proverbs 26:4-5 New International Version 4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. 5 Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes. Proverbs 26:12 New International Version 12 Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them. Proverbs 26:16 New International Version 16 A sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven people who answer discreetly. Ecclesiastes 10:13-14 New International Version 13 At the beginning their words are folly; at the end they are wicked madness— 14 and fools multiply words. No one knows what is coming— who can tell someone else what will happen after them? Well, OK, MarkInSA, respectfully, of course, Biblically, the answer to Your question appears quite clear. Am I missing something?
  5. I am not sure the degree of success the deprogramming will provide THEE "noted" "poster". I suspect THEE "grip" IS SO "secure" that any attempt would be thwarted. The "cognition" ALSO APPEARS "stored" IN THEE "respective" "safe" "space" PROHIBITING "unbrainwashing". However, should "success" BE "achieved" THEE "resultant" WOULD BE "voluntarily" "recaptivated" AND "resoiled" as illustrated HERE: So, soldiering on as We The People MUST as True The United States Of America Patriots FIGHTING to RIGHT EVERY WRONG FOR EVERYBODY. Even though those whose freedom has been secured wrong THEMSELVES. With TDS and such. Repeatedly. As illustrated in THIS thread. AND elsewhere. Prolifically. AND Politically. Unfortunately. Self Abuse is THEE WORST Abuse of ALL!!! Regardless of what my biological father and paterfamilias with or without my mother and materfamilias as consistently cohesive parenting figures on any particular matter in my development years may have desired and attempted to instill, unity wasn't ever noted that I could remember whereas the consequences thereof were identified beyond the advertised "must" "do" FOR "undeniable" "benefit" RESULTING IN A MUCH GREATER CATASTROPHY AND LOSS OF LIBERTY. For example, I remember the Social Programs legislated to be put in place to address the material deficiencies any group of individuals or individual could face to be satisfied by the tax paying Citizen of We The People. The War On Poverty. Unity. Accordingly, expanding spheres of responsibility were circumvented. Namely personal then nuclear family then extended family then church then community then County. Keeps provision and accountability as close to home as possible for the REAL social programs instilling strength and functionality in the individual and interrelationships for necessary Independence fostering Interdependence. Unity is a buzz word for Dependence. Dependent for associated thinking, reasoning, and response for programming as a tool in an agenda. Unity like the FAILED War On Poverty. Unity is a precursor for Codependency DESTROYING the individual wherewithal and leading to the ultimate destruction of social orders to include the associated Rule Of Law with the ultimate collapse of the Nation. Well, OK, I could further bore with my previously posted illustrations. One item worth mentioning is the Germans HATED The United States Of America Infantry. The Germans would pick off the most senior ranking officer(s) then find out the next lower ranking officer would lead the tactical offensive all the way down to the lowest ranking infantryman. And they will still lead the tactical offensive shape shifting tactics as needed to kill the German Soldiers. Illustrates the importance of one thinking for themself and then acting on agreement on discreet items of principle without compromising on personal autonomy to dissent on any particular item and act independently for the individual and collective good. Personal Acknowledgement, Personal Responsibility, and Personal Ownership based on the Four (4) Textual Cornerstones: The Bible - Foundational. The Constitution Of The United States Of America TO INCLUDE The Ratified Bill Of Rights / The Declaration Of Independence / Federalist Papers - Engagement. Blackstone English Common Law (stripped of the Crown Entity obligations) - Application. Magna Carta - Physical. This here is ALL based on personal initiative and application whereas is the common ground for Social Discourse and determination for degree of action individually then collectively. Unity is a cancer that quickly grows to destroy the host nation. Even Nikita Khrushchev once noted: Socialism EXCLUDES FREE THINKING AND DEMANDS UNITY. LIKIE THEE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE ALTOGETHER SOCIALIST!!! So, OK, I CHOOSE to have a BRAIN AND USE IT EXTENSIVELY. SO.................................................................................................. Yeah, I'll Stand With AND Get The Six Of LIKE MINDED INDIVIDUALS ON AGREEMENT ON ANY PARTICULAR ISSUE BUT NOT UNITY EVER. Independence DEMANDS THIS.
  6. Well, OK, SOMEBODY is quite professionally adept at "warming" "themself". Well, OK, prevents sticking THEIR "foot" IN THEIR "mouth".
  7. Yes, Thank You, BigWave! Physical phenomena are often intriguing in nature and sometimes extensive to comprehend accurately whether at Salt Lake, Utah or The Sea Of Galilee, Israel. All that man can do is observe some phenomena and then describe it the best he knows how using his words and/or mathematical equations. He can then implement that phenomena according to his desires using his description with his words and/or mathematical equations. Man is limited by three means. First by what he views with regard to the phenomena. Second by his ability to accurately describe the phenomena using his words and/or mathematical equations. Third by the biases he possesses as he views and describes the phenomena. Man can not change the actual laws that govern the phenomena nor can he create any new phenomena. - Synopsis The Creator of the universe and everything in it created all the phenomena and the irrefutable and unchangeable actual laws that govern each and all phenomena. - Synopsis Science is an extremely poor reflection of the infinite wisdom the Creator applied to each and every phenomena to include their governance with all magnificence in their interactions even to the extent we call beauty and respond by faith and trust in joyous worship of the Creator. - Synopsis
  8. Oh, no, LadyGrace'sDaddy, I am not angry or embarrassed at all. I feel sorry, though, for those who believe the earth is flat. The evidence, Biblical included, does not support a flat earth. I would like to see each of the nominal 200 noted references to the earth being flat and examine them for myself. I gave compelling reasons why the earth is not flat but spherical (geoidal) instead. I connected two dots for a reason. You caught it. Connecting dot from point A to point B does NOT indicate a flat earth. There are reasonable and provable explanations for why light behaves as it does that does not infer a flat earth. I illustrated this point by inferring a laser was shot from Salt Lake, Utah to the Sea Of Galilee, Israel which, in fact, did NOT happen - that I know of. However, the video did state the Sea Of Galilee, Israel is nominally 7,000 miles from Salt Lake, Utah. The spherical (geoidal) earth is nominally 7,920 miles in diameter and has a circumference of nominally 25,000 miles at the Equator. Earth/Diameter 7,917.5 mi Earth/Circumference 24,901 mi On a flat earth model, the distance from Salt Lake, Utah is nominally 88% of the entire earth's diameter and would be a compelling proof if the laser was shot directly from Salt Lake, Utah to the Sea Of Galilee, Israel if the earth is indeed flat. After all, we do shoot laser beams to the moon (reflected back) to determine the distance from the earth based on a plate placed on the moon during one of the moon shots. To further illustrate, my High School Physics Teacher, a really cool and smart guy, had an early form of a nominally 1/4" diameter round fiber optic material that was spiral and uncoated/uninsulated somewhat like a heating element on a stove with about ten or so in the winding on a plane. The inside and middle was shaped and molded up ward like the very end. When he shined a light on the middle "port", the light bent, spun around the entire winding and then up. The surface of the winding did have a slight glow whereas much of the original light intensity traveled along the fiber optic material and out the end. Light "bent". Like it does today for transmitting fiber optic signals along fiber optic cables. Mirages off hot pavement also provide an interesting physical phenomenon. Mirrored images off cold pavement are a different story and indicate black ice as you know. Driving and other physical precautions are adjusted accordingly to avoid undesirable outcomes. All this to say just because someone brings an explanation to the table doesn't mean it is entirely valid. Like a flat earth. Say I am witnessing to someone about the TRUTH of Jesus Christ being God in The Flesh, came to earth, died and rose again for mine and the whole world's sin, then ascended into heaven where HE now sits at the right hand of God. I then start talking about the Flat Earth. These two do NOT correspond and the other person would likely have a propensity to disregard what I was witnessing about Jesus Christ. Or a need to receive Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior. NO, I am NOT stirring an argument just stating the TRUTH. A spherical (geoidal) shaped earth is NOT Luciferian and a spherical (geoidal) shaped earth is reality NOT a flat earth. Just like amature astronomers can show other planets and moons, even the sun, to be nominally spherical in shape based on personal observation and the right equipment. An associated phenomena is the lunar eclipse of the sun. A round moon over a round sun. Sure, further investigation is necessary to note whether disc shaped or nominally spherical. I REALLY appreciate You, LadyGrace'sDaddy, AND, of course, BigWave while being concerned about strongly held views that ultimately are not supportable. I don't want to see misjudgments that lead to compromising any credibility either may have.
  9. Me, too. Didn't answer the first two points I mentioned, though Light travels in a medium based on the index of refraction. Light "bends" at the surface of the water. Aim at the fish while bowfishing and miss the fish every time. Shoot OVER the fish EVERY time. So, have to judge how far below the surface of the water the fish is and how far out to adjust point of aim to hit the fish. The light bends at the water air interface based on the differing index of refraction of the two media. Traveling through different mediums (even air mediums) with differing compositions (or concentrations) will bend light. Flat earth basic principle says what you see is what you will get. The stars reorient in the sky due to the spinning of the spherical (geoidal) earth so the north pole would point to a very small point in space. Time lapse photography shows the other stars spinning in a circle due to the earth spinning. The north star. The north star is much further out than the diameter of the distance the earth travels around the sun so is a navigable fixed point in space. After all, the Southern Cross is not seen in the Northern Hemisphere nor the Northern Lights near the North Pole in the Southern Hemisphere just like the Southern Lights near the South Pole are not seen in the Northern Hemisphere. The Flat Earth has ONE "pole". The earth spins on it's axis at a constant rate (no tangential acceleration or deceleration). The space above the earth's atmosphere has miniscule matter. So, the matter that makes up the earths atmosphere is at the same angular velocity as the earth with localized air currents due to temperature (density) differences, topology, etc. due to lack of shear in the upper atmosphere. So the argument of needing to travel 1,000 mph just to keep up is dismissed for obvious reasons. Sure, adjustments need to be made in ground velocity and bearing due to wind direction and strength while the atmosphere is traveling in nominally the same rate at the spinning earth. Also, the earth's gravity keeps the earth's atmosphere where higher elevations have a lower density until the outer reaches of the earth's atmosphere. Hurricanes in the Northern Hemisphere spin counter clock wise. Just like the undisturbed drain current. The undisturbed drain current spins clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere due to the slight influence of the earth's angular momentum. This phenomena of differing undisturbed drain rotation in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere indicates a spherical spinning earth and could not exist in a Flat Earth model. Rivers flow from a higher elevation to a lower elevation. I doubt the entire Nile river has only 1 foot of drop the entire way whereas less than a foot of drop per mile of river course is more likely according to the real data. The Mississippi River has about six inches of drop per mile of river course. The angular velocity (1 revolution per day) is so low the spinning effect wouldn't cause the Nile to flow from the Mediterranean toward Lake Tana or Lake Victoria. The Amazon river flows from west to east nominally at the Equator. Math shows there is a very slight gravitational difference at the poles and the Equator due to the spinning of the earth at one (1) revolution per day. Very Slight Gravitational Difference. So, OK, I am interested in seeing the list of nominally 200 references to the earth being flat. Please post them. I do NOT think the references when looked at from the original language in Biblical context will even hint at the earth being flat. After all, the Moon is FLAT just like Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, AND Pluto ALL with THEIR moons. Well, OK, sarcasm in the last statement. Amature astronomers with telescopic equipment can show these bodies to be round. A disc? I think NOT - a sphere with topological variations in reality. Using a technical basis to arrive at a conclusion, such as a Flat Earth, is misleading. The test methods should be considered for THEIR relevance AND variations impacted by physical phenomena. The issue is determining and communicating relevant information so no issues are misconstrued and credibility is compromised. Cool video, though. Glad to see the friends at the Sea Of Galilee were able to spot Your laser shot from Salt Lake, Utah noted as 7,000 miles away. Wouldn't You have to point Your laser in a Northeasterly direction through a portion of Canada, Greenland, Europe and then to the Sea Of Galilee on the flat earth model as the shortest distance between two points? After all, the spherical earth diameter is nominally 7,920 miles and would be a good test to prove nearly the entire span of the earth the earth is flat. IF the earth is flat.
  10. !!!RonScarpa!!! Thank You, Kind Sir!!! Bless You, too, Brother!!!
  11. Revelation 20:11-15 New International Version The Judgment of the Dead 11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:12 Mounce Reverse Interlinear New Testament 12 And kai I saw the ho dead nekros, the ho great megas and kai the ho small mikros, standing histēmi before enōpion the ho throne thronos, and kai the book sbiblion were opened anoigō. Then kai another allos book biblion was open edanoigō—the hos Book of ho Life zōē. And kai the ho dead nekros were judged krinō by ek what ho was written graphō in en the ho book sbiblion, according to kata ·ho their autos deed sergon. νεκρός (nekros) Strong: G3498 GK: G3738 dead, without life, Mt. 11:5; 22:31; met. νεκρός τινι, dead to a thing, no longer devoted to, or under the influence of a thing, Rom. 6:11; dead in respect of fruitlessness, Jas. 2:17, 20, 26; morally or spiritually dead, Rom. 6:13; Eph. 5:14; dead in alienation from God, Eph. 2:1, 5; Col. 2:13; subject to death, mortal, Rom. 8:10; causing death and misery, fatal, having a destructive power, Heb. 6:1; 9:14 The "dead" or nekros are standing before HIM to be judged. Pretty sure whatever form the body has is similar to the physical life before death but then eternally existing since the "dead" are all standing before HIM. The issue of existing eternally in Hell in constant torment can be eternally avoided by receiving Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior NOW.
  12. Great perspective, LadyGrace'sDaddy!!! Thank You for sharing. I do believe it starts, continues, and completes with HIM. Matthew 16:15-17 New International Version 15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. John 10:3 New International Version 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:7-10 New International Version 7 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. 8 All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:27-30 New International Version 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will ****** them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can ****** them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.” John 14:6 New International Version 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:9 New International Version 9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Isaiah 30:21 New International Version 21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” 1 Timothy 4:1 New International Version 4 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Hebrews 3:7-9 New International Version Warning Against Unbelief 7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness, 9 where your ancestors tested and tried me, though for forty years they saw what I did. Hebrews 10:15-16 New International Version 15 The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: 16 “This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”[a] Read full chapter Footnotes Hebrews 10:16 Jer. 31:33 Revelation 2:7 New International Version 7 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. Revelation 2:11 New International Version 11 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death. Revelation 2:17 New International Version 17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it. Revelation 2:29 New International Version 29 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3:6 New International Version 6 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3:13 New International Version 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3:22 New International Version 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” Revelation 14:13 New International Version 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” Ephesians 1:15-23 New International Version Thanksgiving and Prayer 15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Read full chapter Footnotes Ephesians 1:17 Or a spirit The reason for posting these Scriptures is to show God The Father, God The Son Jesus Christ, and God The Holy Spirit all speak to us seemingly in specific ways. Jesus calls HIS sheep out by name and each of HIS sheep recognize HIS voice and follow HIM. A contrast to agendas and medias seeking to and actually influencing us. Not to downplay the agenda we may or may not be aware of influencing each of us in a variety of different ways, the enticement to corruption has always been before mankind. Jeremiah 17:2 New International Version 2 Even their children remember their altars and Asherah poles[a] beside the spreading trees and on the high hills. Read full chapter Footnotes Jeremiah 17:2 That is, wooden symbols of the goddess Asherah Jeremiah 17:2 in all English translations Asherah poles were the pornography of the day. People have always had a propensity toward the same sins. The media may have changed or expanded but is pretty much the same. There is a choice. To look or not to look. To participate or not to participate. To cleanse or not to cleanse. To live out righteousness or not to live out righteousness. To advocate righteousness or not to advocate righteousness. James 4:17 New International Version 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them. Eternal Life in Jesus Christ is incomparably wonderful. Eternal Death apart from Jesus Christ is incomparably tormenting. Realizing both, being joyful with the Born Again in God The Son Jesus Christ with fellow believers is very much worth celebrating. Alternately, a heart of humility and sorrow for the passively ignorant even warning the active perpetrators of lies. Titus 1:12-14 New International Version 12 One of Crete’s own prophets has said it: “Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons.”[a] 13 This saying is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith 14 and will pay no attention to Jewish myths or to the merely human commands of those who reject the truth. 1 Timothy 1:3-7 New International Version Timothy Charged to Oppose False Teachers 3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer 4 or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith. 5 The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Some have departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk. 7 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm. Well, OK, I have NEVER been noted for brevity or being concise, er, NOT often at least. I would like, though, to affirm what You posted noted the REAL agenda is kept AND communicated by HIM. Am I listening???!!! AND. Of Course. Following???! HIM.
  13. Maybe cool yer jets here. I grew up in severe winter weather conditions where livestock acclimated to the changing seasons and precautions needed to be taken to ensure the herds were cared for, fed, and didn't freeze to death during more severe spells. Wind and wind chill is a huge issue. I think the higher the humidity in the cold air, the more biting cold it can be. It really is a big deal. A far bigger deal in areas that typically do not experience severe winter weather conditions like this where livestock is more critically affected and building standards are not set for cold weather conditions so freezing pipes are far more of an issue. I doubt water lines feeding homes and buildings are a minimum of 5 1/2 feet below grade to ensure the water supply line stays below the frost line. Heating lamps above the farrowing oinkers just high enough where the standing sow doesn't hit the lamp and having hay on the floor only works in a confinement of some sort like a hog house where the wind is avoided. Probably having confinements of some sort is not available in areas not experiencing snow and cold like this so providing environments that do not severely affect livestock and some pets is not easily or readily applied. I enjoyed snowmobiling, too, in upper Minnesota. Ice fishing is cool. Jigging on 2 to 4 lb test line about a foot off the bottom and watching the fish come up and staring at the bait is frustrating but you get to see what is down there. Snow and cold weather can be fun if set up for it in those areas that typically have snow and cold weather provided livelihood conditions are not adversely affected. This year, many areas are experiencing snow and cold weather conditions never before experienced by many while adequate preparations of accommodations and livestock is challenging at best and will likely have some undesirable outcome - like loss of pets and livestock or frozen pipes causing water damage to homes or businesses. These hardships are not an opportunity for ridicule or jocularities of any sort. Sure, celebrate snow and cold recreational opportunities BUT console those adversely affected where life issues are compromised. And, of course, help out if possible.
