  1. Gays and the corrupt views of hypocritical TV Evangelists



    To start I make a statement that God views both heterosexual and homosexuals in exactly the same light. Both are capably of altruism towards their fellow humans and both are capably of the most hideous depravity.



    I am believer in Jesus Christ, not the mad insanity of the thieving depraved lying hypocrite idiots of the likes of the TV evangelist thieves of the likes of Kenneth Copeland Benny Hinn.



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    LATTER DAY CHURCH CORRUPTION



    God has reserved a special place for this kind of person, who uses the precious name of his only begotten n Son, for personal gain, power and wealth, by knowingly lying and milking gullible and vulnerable people out of their hard earned cash



    Turn on your TV AND look no further and you will see the likes of Kennith Copeland and Benny Hinn billionaires, in action on their hypnotic stages hypnotizing and using Satanic tricks (In glee I think), deceiving people into believing any sort of outrageous rubbish and stealing from the hungry mouths of the gullible and disadvantaged.



    God sent his one and only son, Jesus into this world to save everyone, not a special group restricted to just to heterosexual people



    God loves gay people as much as he loves heterosexual people.



    Jesus came to save all of humanity not according to their sexual identity!



    Depravity and goodness exists both in heterosexual people as it does in gay people



    There will be gay people in heaven, because if they turned from their sins and asked Jesus to accept them into his everlasting arms


    the exact same situation faces heterosexual and homosexual, in Gods Holy Judgement



    By the way I am a man of 76 years of age man, with four beautiful daughters ten great grandchildren and two beautiful baby great grand children



    What are your thoughts on the matter of my post ?

    That doesn't make that sort of hate speech OK.

     

    It is not hate speech just a statement of fact. Do I want to to perpetuate of hate, murder, rape, violence decapitation. Not me who would not hurt even a little bird r But these ISIS fundamental Islamic monsters want to violently convert the whole world to ISLAM. Why do you people keep making excused for these ISIS beasts that are worse than Hitlers Nazi hordes?

    Some particularly hateful commentary was removed from Alan MacDougall's post. if you can't post without impugning the deity of some other's religion, don't post at all. "Keep it friendly and polite" indeed

     

    (BTW, "bugger all" is a term meaning "nothing")

    Moderator Note

    Not too fond of accusations of lying, either.

     

    I was voicing my opinion, it was not meant as a statement of fact, but carry on moderating the forum to death?

  4. Fifteen or so years ago I was living in Togo & had to have an operation (most unpleasant - spinal anaesthetic - legs paralysed for three days etc.).

    I later found out that, while I was in hospital, the local Mosque had been saying prayers for me every day (I knew just one man who went there.) What did the Christian churches do? Exactly what you would expect - bugger all.

     

    (I've never had a Moslem try to convert me or preach at me in any way. Bloody Christians never shut up.)

     

    You are both lying and talking a lot of nonsense. If Christians had known about you, they would have prayed for your recovery However, not being psychic or telephonic you simply did not register on them to pray for you. Do you know the term Bugger is a filthy word meaning sodomy or anal sex, be more careful in future before posting utter nonsense. Muslims are no better than Christians and their religion originated in the mind of a mad delusional evil illiterate war lord, who by just one example had 600 Jews murdered just because they would not convert to Islam by denying their faith.

     

    Nowhere in the New Testament does it tell the readers to kill those who leave their faith or convert under the threat of death or chop off peoples heads or it was OK to rape a woman. While it is true so called Christians also do these things, they are not commanded by their teachings or faith to carry out such despicable acts on other people.

    You are a classic bigot because you are accusing all members of a group (or several groups, as there are different branches of Islam) as behaving the same way as one bunch of (arguably non-Islamic) terrorists.

     

    Would you say that all white men are rapists?

     

    Or that all Americans are serial killers?

     

    I will just put you on my ignore list with the other scum.

     

    Well it is true that you have to be a scumbag yourself to be an expert of another. Yes I have spoken to many Muslims and it is not them that I despise it is the ISIS BEASTS THAT RAPE, MURDER, BED LITTLE SLAVE GIRL OF 7 YEARS OF AGE.

     

    Muhammad was an evil illiterate warlord with not one good bone in his reprobate body.

    So you have your certificate in Cherry Picking. Well done.

    Why do you think it is acceptable to be such a vile bigot?

    You need to remove this line from your sig: "Lets keep it friendly and polite!"

     

    Or add one saying that you are a hypocrite as well as a bigot.

     

    I am sure you are a vile Muslim that if you got me under your chopper would promptly cut off my old grey head. To call me a bigot in light of THE ISIS MONSTERS AND THEIR ACTS AND THEIR UNSPEAKABLE DEPRAVITY AND HIDEOUS BRUTALITY IS A JOKE!

  7.  

    Well this will most likely attract mod's attention, but this is an opportunity I cannot resist! My most sincere apologies, Phi, it's my 400th post anniversary :unsure:

     

    Mr McDougall, I'm sure he will use your advise as a pell checker :)

     

    I see you are rather young and use cell phone messaging technique, nothing wrong with that I apologise, sorry! ;)

  8.  

    I will give u an hint, when a person yawn, u dont feel tended to, that is called mimic. Every human, do it unconciously, however in your case, iyou may have developted an how can i say "voluntary unvoluntary" mimic. Bascialy when u picture an person u tend to act the same way as they usualy behave. In other words, congrates you just found that u have developed an useless thing on your brain, keep the good job. However that isnt bad, if u decided to be an actress or actor, u can use this capacity. Basicaly everyone is good at something, memory, reasoning, etc and for you is mimic.

     

    Are you unable to actually incapable of writing in English what is all this "u" this "u' and that "u" and u that If "you" are unable to spell "you" I post it here for "YOU" to use in future "YOU" Use as pell checker

    I find that if I visualise a face with enough concentration, there comes a point where, independent of my concious movement, my body starts to ASSUME the mannerisms of the person who's face Im thinking about? What is going on?
    And not only that.
    Everything I do, while simultaneous focusing on the mental image of that face, will be done exactly the way that person would do it, without me trying to consciously imitate him! how does this happen? its like I can actually transform into other people merely by thinking about them!
    For example, say my friend stella has a unique way of laughing and talking. Now when I close my eyes, visualise her face strongly...and just 'laugh', my laugh comes ouit EXACTLY AS SHE WOULD LAUGH! im not CONCIOUSLy trying to laugh like her, it just happens! what is going on in my brain to make this possible??

     

     

    I do not believe you!

  10. Here's a simple way to look at it...

     

    Faster than c motion is allowed as long as there cannot be any information transfer.

    In the case of the two mountains separating or closing at 0.9c, any information is conveyed by them at only 0.9c ( not 1.8c ).

    Even though the 'apparent' separating or closing speed is greater than c.

     

    This same effect is observed in the motion of a shadow or an image on a surface. The image ( illuminated spot ) or shadowed spot, can be made to move across the surface superluminally.

    But no actual information is being transferred at a rate faster than c

     

    Thank you, then the ''Shrinking'space' does exist mathematically?

  11. I usually do not point mistakes out but, just to clear my doubts, doesn't special relativity state than nothings from any perspective can be observed to go faster than the speed of light. Even if you are moving towards a light source, the light being emitted should be measured the same speed as if you were moving away from the light source. Is this right or wrong?

     

    Right they will both show a redshift way from your perspective.

  12. Irrational babbling eh? I can live with that. Though on no account did I remotely claim we needed the bible to make better citizens. What you did there is called strawmanning. To sum it up, you took what I said and purposefully twisted it to make me seem like a fool,which seems stupid to me, but if you want to do it then fine.

     

    Also,during this entire thread, you have done nothing but insult people and call their arguments pointless that contribute nothing to the conversation, which makes you a hypocrite. Rather then clogging up this thread with useless insults, twisting peoples words, and acting like a little child, please act responsibly and contribute something ok?

     

    Now,I come from a town full of achoholics, drug addicts, fighting, murders,and much worse things. My family is very poor, and in all probability I won't be able to get into college. Yet, I'm still happy. The reason is because I know Jesus. Maybe I'm insane, maybe its irrational, but I can make the irrational choice to make my self feel better ok? May e you come from a rich family, and your all Mr. Know it all, but not everyone is as perfect as you. Once again. Leave. It. Go.

     

    "Thanks for an intelligent post void of religious judgmental statements" like the one emanating from our unpleasant other forum member, who in reality knows nothing about NDE simply because he has never experienced it 'yet'

     

    His smug dismissal, will quickly change to cold fear, the moment he knows he is in "the actual process of dying" as I did, something that will sober him up if he survives.

     

    You are following the only one in all of creation, that has the power and love too free you and set you down beside Almighty God forever

    God Bless Alan

    You were (and still are) preaching Alan. It is right there in the post that preceded mine and in most of your posts above. Full of unsubstantiated statements of faith with zero facts. Seems that you cannot spot the difference between fact, faith, or fallacy..? I sense that being a believer clouds your sanity.

     

    I.m.o. this thread serves to illustrate a great deal of ignorance on your part, nothing more.

     

    This was just irrational blabbering that seemingly refute some of the writer's own points (spot them). To argue that we need the Bible to make better citizens is far-fetched.

     

    The "God of Spinoza" is nature, which is referred to as pantheism.

     

    Well, firstly Yahweh and the God of the OT are - according to scriptures - one and the same. You do believe in that God, no? The concept of a Holy Trinity was something that was devised later by the early church fathers during the Ante-Nicene Period leading up to the Council of Nicaea. So your many references to Jesus have little significance then as you here acknowledged that you do not believe God has a name..?

     

    Dear most unpleasant person read what I say below very carefully?

     

    I do not associate myself with hateful judgmental rants Period!

  13. Please make no mistake. A full 90% of all my colleagues and their predecessors are atheist or agnostic. And when Dirac or Einstein with his famous "God does not play dice" comments, speak of a good, it is NOT a personal biblical type of a god. Rather, they posit an impersonal non caring sort of Deist Universal Intelligence. Nothing remotely close to a Yahweh or Allah.

     

    Einstein was an atheist he said it he had to believe in God it would be "the God of Spinoza" a Dutch philosopher who liked the idea of a deist type of God.

     

    However, Paul Dirac was not an atheist!

     

     

    Presumably you are very young, then.

     

    Actually you make a lot of sense, sorry I mean nonsense.

    Why do you bring Allah or Yahweh into the thread, in my essay I make no mention of names , in fact I do not believe God has a name or many names, like the fabricated Allah or Yahweh?

     

    In my opinion God is the "Ever-Existing One!

  14.  

     

    Does it matter?

     

    Death is something we will all face, whatever we believe; proximity doesn’t lead to understanding any more than age leads to wisdom.

     

    Age does lead to wisdom Period!

    @ Alan, you are making unsubstantiated claims again and even highlighting some of them. Please stop doing that, preach your beliefs somewhere else.

     

    Who are you to tell me what to do? I am not preaching anything, you can believe in the tooth demon as far as I am concerned. Most of my life I was an angry theist, now I an a believer, but stay well away from exclusive fundamentalism, which I despise!

  15.  

    How do you know the Golden Light was Jesus?

     

    And why do you now have no doubt about the Afterlife? Since you really did not spend any time there, nor experience anything that could not be construed as being in a dream state. Sure, your heart and breathing had ceased (so you say) but all it takes to experience a dream is a few neurotransmitters firing back and forth in the brain. Just some chemicals being excited by the millivolts of electrical current that is in our brains and nervous systems. Which still, btw, trickles for up to several hours after clinical death. Hell, we say this in H.S. Biology with the frog dissections, right?

     

    I mean, sorry, sir, all due respect. Your story was mildly interesting. And I am sure you believe in God and a Risen Jesus and the Afterlife. But as an atheist and a scientist I do not, and personally I consider your story no more proof of the Afterlife or of God than a crazy dream I had last night after eating too much ice cream before bedtime. And while you claim you have "no doubts" and believe you saw The Tree of Knowledge and Jesus, please know that this is all purely anecdotal. What would be far more impressive is if you had come away from the dream with some knowledge you did not have before. Like a fact from one of those books you said you saw by the Tree. Which, btw, if they were from the Tree of Knowledge in Genesis, would have been written in Hebrew, correct? Since that is the lingua franca of the original Torah.

     

    Thanks for sharing!

     

    VB

     

     

    I was there you were not, some people as an analogy would laugh at you if you told then you came from Timbuktu, or Dar- es -Salaam.

     

    I did come back with knowledge that I did not know about before the episode, but I am wise enough not to share it with those that jeer.

     

    It is highly presumptuous of you to think I was trying to free you from the grip of atheism, believe what you like!

     

    What is consciousness?

     

    I accept the fact that you are a scientist, God is the primordial scientist and he just might be using this thread to reveal how much he loves you, regardless..

     

    Paul Dirac the great physicist , quoted that "he saw God in the beauty of his mathematics"

     

    To dream a persons brain needs to be flooded with blood, how can a a totally inactive brain that was devoid of blood think and think about a place so beyond any earthy imagination a place so full of beauty , love and wonder?

     

    The Golden orb seem to fill existence with unconditional love, only Jesus fits.

     

    Why do people think that we retain a physical body like we have in this mortal life on earth. In the afterlife there is no need for legs as just one example . We take on any shape that fits and Jesus passed me buy as a golden orb condensed golden of energy or spirit.

     

    The fact that you "an atheist and a scientist", makes no difference, there are hundreds of accounts by atheists that had had a NDE of becoming firm believers in Almighty God.

     

    Did I say the book was written in English I did not check your facts?

  16.  

    Which is the bigger waste: accepting the universe as it is and getting on with life, or fooling yourself with dreams of a better time ahead?

     

    Plenty of people have faced eath (including near death experiences like yours) and remained not just sceptical but solidly atheist.

     

    There is a saying "there are no atheists in foxholes" but it is a lie. Many people have experienced the horrors of war and decided that there can be no god. (Or certainly no sane or merciful god.)

     

    Who exactly are these people that have faced death in fact I doubt you, know even one a a close friend ?

     

    God does not need you to believe that he exists, however, he believes in you regardless.

     

    God is infinite in all his attrubutes.

     

    So you were there with them in the trenches. Exactly who are these many people?. In fact I doubt the veracity of someone putting on the hat of an expert on the subject and knowledge the NDE phenomenon.

  17. Alan, please slow down. It is one thing to tell a story which is open to interpretation, explanation, or conviction...although I did find the reference to both Satan and Jesus uncomfortably close to a veiled threat along the lines of Pascal's Wager (not sure how many readers on this site will fall for something like that though). But to state the above as if it is fact is perhaps going too far and actually erodes any shred of credibility that your story might had (as Sensei exploited). Rather acknowledge that it is your own belief and please understand that faith, beliefs and superstitions are far removed from facts.

     

    Maybe you do not understand good English I said I saw what I saw as my own "subjective reality", I do not care a bit that you do not believe me.

     

    As far as you go, you are so bound in material things, that to you all we are just watery bags of protoplasm and basic elements, waiting for it to decay and the return to dust and total annihilation of your consciousness or self awareness, into the everlasting dark void of nothingness. "Dead again forever"

     

    What a waste given the fact that your entire existence on planet earth, is less than the very briefest flashing moment of a Planck time constant like moment, when compared to the unimaginable vastness of time stretching out into everlasting eternity!

     

    And yes there is a thread of real credibility, "my honesty", why the heck should Lie about almost dying, it was done to help people that might be facing death or are terrified by it!?

     

    One day you are going to face the cold terrifying realization that you are "Actually Dying" like I did and your skepticism will vanish period!

     

    Below is are two poems I wrote about death?

     

    as I approach the infinite long dark night

    I resist and resist it with all my might

    I try and try to comprehend this end

    to which all men must descend

    is it a sleep that all must take?

    or is it an eternal end that all must make?

    I like to dream of awakening in light not dark

    in a beautiful place to which all righteous men depart

    do we sleep the sleep of forever?

    or do we awake some other place together?

    does the answer to this ultimate question

    remain forever a process of eternal redemption?

    on one glorious day from timeless sleep I awoke

    and heard a beautiful and kind voice that sweetly spoke

    my faithful son at last you have became to understand

    exactly your place in this troubled land

    you my beloved have truly never ceased to seek

    the infinite destiny that in eternity for you I keep

    so for you and your family no eternal death awaits

    because of your zeal to know your fate

    soon I will bring you all to this most holy place

    and there I will you never forsake

    very soon, you shall hear a sweet call in the dark of night

    come, come into the holy glory of the father spirit of mighty might

    I walk in the cool of evening along sweet meadows I have never seen

    I smell the beauty of grasses that have never been

    strange golden streams of crystal waterfowls

    as blue glory of mighty skies above glows

    I search the long forgotten memories in the attic of my mind

    along the twisted channels the very depth soul that I could not find

    I see before me things so wonderful I knew from long ago

    I puzzle over the enigma of knowing what I do not know

    out there far beyond the knowledge of any man is revealed

    something of such great mystery to it my heart had appealed

    why have I on this one thing so many years stalled?

    is this infinite knowledge from many man would be appalled?

    walking on through the shade of great trees that give eternal life

    I hear the sweet forgotten voice that comes to free all from everlasting strife

    high green new grasses in this new do land grow

    as transparent waters chuckle dance, sparkle, and flow

    Emanuel's Light

    A poem by Alan McDougall 2001

     

    Come fly towards majestic Orion with me

    At great speed to our majestic god we flee

    Through a wide river at last we fly

    Reaching out to a great light beyond the sky

     

    Towards the sides of the north nearer and nearer we flew

    Arrayed in spotless white robes given to you

    Across a vast space of infinite night

    Together clothed in glory we continued our flight

     

    Oh great heavenly cavern so measureless to man

    See before majestic Emmanuel gather all who can

    By mighty angels through glorious clouds we are driven

    Closer and closer to gods mighty throne in the midst of heaven

     

    At last to those mighty gates of heaven we came

    Baptized by El Shaddias light all were the same

    In joyful luminous glory all creation did sing

    By that stupendous realm of the holy king

     

    A mighty voice shook all creation and rang through the air

    Saying loud gather all around great EL Shaddais colossal chair

    Look at god’s right a wonder is seen to rise

    “Oh my beloved son at last I can give you your PRIZE”

     

    Bathed in beautiful grandeur of the one who had atoned

    Countless multitudes stood quiet before Emmanuel enthroned

    Joyfully before Emmanuel at last

    Faces glowing by lakes colored by golden riven glass

    Rejoicing at a life that would now never pass

     

    Through a wide river at last we fly

    Reaching out to a great light beyond the sky

     

    Towards the sides of the north nearer and nearer we flew

    Arrayed in spotless white robes given to you

    Across a vast space of infinite night

    Together clothed in glory we continued our flight

     

    Oh great heavenly cavern so measureless to man

    See before majestic Emmanuel gather all who can

    By mighty angels through glorious clouds we are driven

    Closer and closer to gods mighty throne in the midst of heaven

     

    At last to those mighty gates of heaven we came

    Baptized by EL Shaddias light all were the same

    In joyful luminous glory all creation did sing

    By that stupendous realm of the holy king

     

    A mighty voice shook all creation and rang through the air

    Saying loud gather all around great EL Shaddais colossal chair

    Look at god’s right a wonder is seen to rise

    “Oh my beloved son at last I can give you your prize”

     

    Bathed in beautiful grandeur of the one who had atoned

    Countless multitudes stood quiet before Emmanuel enthroned

    Joyfully before Emmanuel at last

    Faces glowing by lakes colored by golden river glass

    Rejoicing at a life that will never pass.
