No, look at the world with real discernment. You are a good and decent Christian who I have come to admire, despite the years of your attacks against me. Trump is an anti-Christ, plain and simple. Not THE anti-Christ, of course, but one who opposes the Lord and his love. How you or others cannot see what seems so plain about his character astonishes me. Diabolical is the one word that comes to mind when I think of the president. You should too.
The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable fact at the same time it is the most intellectually resistant.
(Mugeridge)

Yes, I am a Christian and I know it is not my place to pass judgement on those who have done wrong. That President Trump wishes to pardon these men does not in any way make him an evil person. We will all be held accountable for what we have done, we will either be rewarded or we will be punished.

I have seen the depravity of man, rumi, not just that of adults but of boys and girls. When I was a firefighter, we were dispatched to a home full of smoke. The oldest son, around 10 years old, who as the story went, was a bully, along with his sidekick, put his sister's kitten in a microwave and cooked it alive. You have no idea what that did to that family, how it shattered his parents and so thoroughly traumatized his sister. You have no idea how five experienced firefighters who have seen human tragedy up close and personal felt about that.

Your outrage over Trump pardoning these men is not an isolated emotional upheaval, it doesn't just hang on a peg all its own, it didn't come out of the blue. Rather, it is a continuation of a long festering hatred that is very un-Christian in its manifestations.

What is the count now? Three threads on this? And for what? I mean, Lord have mercy, do you really think your hostility toward President Trump is just a flash in the pan, that it is unique? Well, you go ahead and have your fits of outrage, brand the man not quite the anti-Christ, put him in league with the devil and one notch above Hitler, and while you simmer down like a serial rapist until the next opportunity for you to attack, we will bide our time and gird our hearts to deal with your next outrage.

JoyV had asked for some links stating the Trumps using government links to promote their products. I provided these much earlier in the thread upon her request, but she seemed to have missed them. People will make what they will of them.
At least Melania isn't forcing school kids to stuff their faces with crap they cannot stomach.

Bash Trump threads? Way too funny. That's how you see this expose of his sick lack of perspective and decency as bashing and not reporting? Talk about blind and loving it! When will you guys ever open your eyes?
And look at the world through your eyes? I don't think so.

Really? Chucky Cheese of atrocities, no big deal. Bring the kids to play cut off their tongues or penises or ears. Win a prize. Objecting to such behavior is not PC but basic human outrage at inhumane and sick practices. What is truly sicker is to say that PC is what makes it wrong, not that it is in and of itself an abomination of spirit no civilized country should tolerate.

You want to make what we or you or I do okay by what disturbed monsters do to others? There is a world of difference apart between being Mr. Nice Guy and savagery. Does the My Lai massacre warm your heart this memorial day? It does for Trump.

Be honest, rumi, you don't give a flying donut hole about the fate of those men or how this effects the morale of our troops. I really doubt that President Trump even thought about the My Lai massacre. You are waxing hyperbolic again. This is just one more sniveling bleeding heart effort to point your gnarly finger at President Trump.

War is savage, it is an ugly, brutal, soul shattering experience, extremely traumatic for those who have to fight them. I've seen what it has done to good friends of mine and it isn't pretty. Five of them to be exact.

You have a lot of nerve talking about moral compasses, expressing outrage, calling these men "monsters". Taking the measure of what these men have done does not even register on the barometer of atrocities. Some of them obviously crossed the line, committed crimes or made bad decisions and wracked up a combined body count of maybe 100 people, not all of whom were exactly innocent, but you make it sound like they committed the worst atrocities in human history, and why? President Trump.

The man is without any conscience. He is clueless as to how wrong his actions are. I needed to post another thread on this topic to expose the true nature of its depravity. He dishonors and besmirches all our Armed Forces now and for the future. If you cannot see that this nation is worse off than I thought.
What are you going to do, start a half dozen bash Trump threads over this? Talk about hyperbole, exaggeration, and righteous indignation going psychopathic.

It is incredible that these men are on trial in the first place. They were soldiers, they were sent to fight an enemy.... and they killed the enemy. What has happened to our nation who has no problem with granting clemency for a deserter a insignificant fine for giving classified military information to the enemy, but plans to execute or jail for life men who killed the enemy? (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41860828, deserter gets fined the judge said the Idaho native, Bowe Bergdahl, must forfeit pay equal to $1,000 (£765) per month for 10 months.)

If we prosecuted every American soldier or Marine for what PC now defines as a "war crime", we'd have run out of prison space a long time ago.

US Marines in the Pacific boiled the skulls of dead Japanese and sold them to sailors on the ships. They yanked gold teeth out of wounded Japanese and cut off their tongues. They cut off their penises and stuffed them in their mouths. American troops in Vietnam cut off the ears of dead Vietcong and made necklaces out of them. SF interrogators threw VC prisoners out of helicopters in an effort to get others to spill the beans.

Oh, but we cannot even think about the atrocities our enemies have committed against our troops, against civilians and whole societies of people. The Japanese and the Germans in WW2 were absolute saints. Islamic Jihadists today are so kind and compassionate it makes your heart just swell.

War is a nasty, brutal business that cannot be won by being Mr Nice Guy.

Try Sanskrit. Some words are also just for their sounds and what that invokes or manifests, such as Om and Shakti. They are defined yet like gestalt, go beyond the literal, being greater than their verbal assignment. Om is a vibration and Shakti a cosmic energy. No words can possibly capture their meaning.

Now I know I have read of this aa well and will see if something can be found.. It is all fascinating..
The "21 grams" experiment was a failure. Basing his hypothesis on souls have weight, Duncan MacDougall, a Massachusetts physician conducted an experiment on six terminal patients in a nursing home.

One of the patients lost weight but then put the weight back on, and two of the other patients registered a loss of weight at death but a few minutes later lost even more weight. One of the patients lost "three-fourths of an ounce" (21.3 grams) in weight, coinciding with the time of death. MacDougall disregarded the results of another patient on the grounds the scales were "not finely adjusted", and discounted the results of another as the patient died while the equipment was still being calibrated. MacDougall reported that none of the dogs lost any weight after death.

While MacDougall believed that the results from his experiment showed the human soul might have weight, his report, which was not published until 1907, stated the experiment would have to be repeated many times before any conclusion could be obtained.

Point 1: Not only is science the only road to knowledge, science is knowledge. It's what the word means.

Point 2: Sentience is the ability to perceive things or minimally to be able to feel things. If sentience goes by the second sense, to feel things, every living thing would be sentient and that renders the word meaningless. The Venus Fly Trap and other plants can feel things. Consequently, feeling things must mean in the sense of perception for it to have any actual meaning. I think it fair to say that knowledge is the only way to truth.

To perceive in the sense of a sentient creature requires minimally a central nervous system. A zygote doesn't have one. A foetus doesn't even have anything that begins to resemble a mammalian brain until the sixth month of gestation.

If it is your contention that a soul enters at the moment of conception, we are back at your religious beliefs again and I repeat my question; by what authority do you subject a nonsubscriber to your religious viewpoint.
Point 1: Not only is science the only road to know... (show quote)
Apparently science did nothing to help you with reading comprehension. I don't think anyone would accuse me of subjecting you to my religious viewpoint by simply asking some questions.

How do you know a growth inside a woman is insentient? Can you prove that? How do you know that the existence of a soul is unprovable? Just because science has not yet provided empirical evidence one way or the other, who's to say one day it won't?

It is not possible that science alone has taught us everything we know. Aesthetic experience, subjective experience, cathartic experience, observation, cognition, the school of hard knocks, trial and error are some of the paths to knowledge in which scientific methods do not apply.

Science cannot explain why ice is slick, but you can experience how slick it is. When you ride a bicycle, it stays upright, but science cannot explain why. You can see through a glass window, but science cannot explain why. Newtons laws of gravity did not teach us to walk or avoid jumping off of cliffs. Science cannot explain where an idea comes from, or dreams, or an epiphany, or the nature of consciousness and self-awareness.

The truth is that very little of the decisions we make, the choices we make or the actions we take are based on the application of scientific laws. Logic and reason apply to very few of our decisions or actions.

Jews belief system is predicated on their domination of the world. They project this psychopathic failing on others to divert attention from their genocide and war crimes.

That sounds like Chapter 14 of Hitler's Mein Kampf.
Doctor Laughing Gas draws his anti-Semitic propaganda from the infamous forgery known as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The Protocols, supposedly the record of secret meetings of Jewish leaders, describes an alleged conspiracy to dominate the world. The conspiracy and its leaders, the so-called Elders of Zion, never existed. Although the Protocols has been proven a fraud on many occasions, it continues to inspire those who seek to spread hatred of Jews.

1864
French political satirist Maurice Joly writes The Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu. Joly's book never mentions Jews, but much of the Protocols would be fabricated based on ideas contained in it.

1868
Prussian writer Hermann Goedsche publishes the novel Biarritz, in which the twelve tribes of Israel meet secretly in Prague's Jewish cemetery. Goedsche's book, like Joly's, contains ideas incorporated in fabricating the Protocols.

1897–1899
Although the origin of the Protocols is still a matter of debate, it was most likely fabricated under the direction of Pyotr Rachovsky, chief of the foreign branch of the Russian secret police (Okhrana) in Paris.

How 'bout that, tucker, when my great aunts heard that I was joining the Navy after HS graduation, they sent me a Bon Voyage gift--a leather bound pocket KJV Bible. It has been with me ever since.

Thanks, Blade, I actually remember you discussing that Bible a few years back when you were about to, or just had purchased it...

So it has lived up to your expectations?

I looked it up online, and it is tempting.

I worshiped with Messianic Jews every Saturday during the early 90's at a Messianic Synagogue in Indianapolis.
My sister has been a devout Christian since she was 17, she has completed hundreds of Bible study programs and has a dozen Bibles of different versions. My brother and I gave her a YRM study Bible for Christmas. She said it is the greatest present she has ever received.

I have several versions myself, including the 1599 Geneva Bible, but the YRM Study Bible is now my go-to Bible. I often use the others just to make comparisons and get broader perspectives.
