I'm sure many of you are familiar with the expression "pearls before swine." Jesus uses this expression as counsel in his Sermon on the Mount. Notably, he states, "Do not give what is holy to dogs, neither throw your pearls before swine, that they may never trample them under their feet and turn around and rip you open." (Matthew 7:6) In the Bible pearls illustratively were associated with wisdom. Evidently, Jesus meant that, if a person shows that they have no appreciation for spiritual things one should not further endeavor to share religious thoughts and teachings with the person.

Very much duly noted! You guys can thank Jesus for his wise words and indirect principle to stop posting such things here. In other words, I am personally banning myself of such posts.

kxmode has been here for 14 years. Only in the past 6 months has he become extremely prominent, in part by constantly arguing (albeit good-naturedly), with almost anything anyone posts. In the past 3 months, he's been posting almost exclusively about the Bible, while swearing he wouldn't post about the Bible.

What gives?

In general, are you finding that people are more openly preachy lately This might explain it.

Whoa, high res. How does one's hair go in so many different directions, with so many different layers?

His hair might actually be made out of onions.

Stop it, just stop it. You are not that stupid. Yes, people can have faith in things other than religion, including science. However, the advancement of science is based on observable, repeatable events not on convincing others to have the same faith as you. Science and religion are not the same, no matter how many times you say they are.

I'm not stupid. I am only illustrating a point using something you may be familiar with (like Jesus did with his copious agrarian illustrations). Scientists put faith in plenty of things they haven't been able to prove as scientific fact, even though they see the evidence to show it is true. They further this faith by writing papers and books about the possibilities. While there are a few skeptics, the vast majority never question their motives or evidence.

This is precisely the same with the Bible for those who study it. I think the real key here is people bundle the Bible in with crazy people and violent organizations as being mutually inclusive. I will be the first to say that history is rife with examples of Christian religions have used the Bible as a weapon to commit all kinds of atrocities. For example, as recent as World World 2, Christendom's priests blessed the arms of Allied soldiers that they would use against fellow believers in the Axis armies. There is a significant distinction between what the Bible states and how people use it. The Bible is simply not the cause of these acts. People are.

To your point about "observable, repeatable events" I would challenge you to look at observable, repeatable events of the world from the early 1900's onward. Compare the mindset before 1920's with the mindset post. There's was a noticeable malaise that the world has never been able to recover from despite the advances in technology, medicine, and more. Also look up scientists observations about the sun. They say it is heating up against all scientific "observable, repeatable" evidence that shows when a star reaches a certain age its core begins to grow "colder." As far as they know ours is the only "observable" star that has not grown cold with age (they cannot explain the reasons). The Bible provides a sound reason for it, and it has nothing to do with "global warming" as Swiss and German scientists claim.

But again, faith in science or religion is purely based on available evidence, and neither is superior to the other. It is only the result of the study of proof.

I write this reply not to proselytize you, but to exchange ideas based on my personal research that you may not have seen elsewhere. The mature response is to acknowledge it the same way we would recognize Brian Greene's string theories.

You're posting fictional beliefs for REAL world issues, but RedEye9 is ignorant and stupid for pointing out your hypocrisy.

The same could be said of scientists who proposed string theory (remains unproven), Higgs Boson (took 48 years to verify), and E=MC^2 (took 120 years to prove). And yet you haven't seen the scientific community protesting vigorously about these just because they remained theories at the time. In fact, many participated in proving them correct through years and years of research. In any context, science is always a systematic effort to build and organize knowledge from satisfactory evidence, and real faith is based on such efforts. Even faith in science can exist.

To put it this way; I would put more faith in Jesus' prophecy than I would in string theory because I can see the evidence in Jesus' prophecy. Even though string theory sounds fascinating when Brian Greene explains it as vibrating strands of energy, there's no evidence for it yet. Both require faith.

Absolutely NO ONE needs an "I told you so" about Lyme Disease, especially not some bullshit religious text version of it either.

What we have needed are medical professionals willing to honestly consider Lyme Disease as an actual possibility within North Americans. It's less of an issue in the States but holy hell doctors in Canada will go to extreme lengths FOR YEARS to avoid testing people.

No - fuck you doctor it's not just fucking depression!@!!

Wow.

Just to clarify, the passage isn't about a particular disease. It was noting the state of illnesses worldwide. For many decades people believed doctors had permanently dealt with many from the past like Tuberculosis and Polio. However, they have been shocked to see many coming back stronger and more resilient to modern medicine. Some so deadly that an outbreak would likely kill most of the world's population relatively quickly.

I do love how people act like one book, written by the rich to keep the poor from raiding them, is used like some cryptic predictor.

With indifference to your ignorance, I will only point out that has to be the most asinine things I've heard someone say about the Bible (and you can conclude I've heard many). You apparently don't know the basic history of the Bible writers. You're quite literally in no position to make judgment calls on the book itself. I've read the Quran and many other religious texts. I'm not an expert on them, but I've educated myself enough to discuss them without disrespecting those who base their beliefs on them. You haven't even reached that level of knowledge with the Bible. Sad.

amen, now keep your word.

Now I know that you're reading my comment. I never stated explicitly what the subject of my comment contained. The only way to find out would be to highlight it. You need to stop reading my comments. It's clear you cannot handle them in a mature way.

By the way, "now keep your word" is another example of your inability to comprehend. My precise words were, "Going forward, I will try to keep these kinds of comments to a minimum." That doesn't imply an explicit ban on posting such comments. It only means I will severely restrict when I post such comments and will try to keep them isolated to topics for which it would be appropriate. In other words, more than likely you will only see such comments in OOTB and ITB and nowhere else.

It behooves you to learn how to grasp what you're reading otherwise you come off as sounding very ignorant. In other words, "I can't fix stupid."

Holy shit! Look at that map for how much Lyme has spread in the last 14 years. Thanks Obama/Bush! And now with the GOP completely gutting healthcare and social spending this is going to become and epidemic.

Most of this was predicted. Below and hidden for obvious reasons:

(Luke 21:7,10,11)

7 Then (Jesus disciples) questioned (Jesus), saying: "Teacher, when will these things actually be, and what will be the sign when these things are to occur?"

10 Then (Jesus) said to (his disciples): "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.

What's fascinating about this prophecy isn't so much that he said there would be "pestilences" (fatal epidemic diseases) today because anyone can say "diseases have been with humanity since the beginning of time." I would agree with this conclusion. However, what Jesus was implying, and this is worth noting, is that he said pestilences would exist "in one place after another" (even prosperous countries like the U.S.). This situation would exist notwithstanding all the advances in medicine and medical science. In other words, Jesus predicted diseases would appear and spread at a rate faster than our modern medicine would be able to keep up. Many of them even baffle medical doctors as they note disease strains that are resistance to the strongest antibodies. It's not an accident; this is prophecy slowly unfolding since 1914.

Maybe so, but my mother still has my old Panasonic CRT TV that I got back in '92. She uses it daily, and it still looks fine. They last a while.

Absolutely. I had a Vectrex (1983) that still worked. The screen is a CRT.

I wouldn't worry about this. Timeworn cars still have a parts market. Those parts are expensive, but for a hobbyist who loves their 1940s Nash Suburban, 1919 Ford Model T Coupe, or Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder SWB money is no expense. There will be demand, and some entrepreneurial enthusiast will start a business to produce them, or tech geniuses will figure out a device to adapt the CRT signature for LCD screens.

I'm thinking maybe he's constipated or something. He always seemed to be an ok guy before and now, out of nowhere he starts acting like a bored 16 year old commenting on Youtube, trying any way to start trouble. Disappointing. I hate to throw anyone on the 'Ignore' list but he may have to join Redmask if he doesn't find something else productive to do with his spare time... *shrugs*

To me, it looks like a basic comprehension problem. I've met people in the ministry who cannot understand basic things or direct their thoughts to a logical conclusion. For example, I asked a person (who believed in the Trinity), "At Habakkuk 1:12 it reads, 'Are you not from everlasting, O Jehovah? O my God, my Holy One, you do not die.' If one cannot die (Jehovah), and the other can (Jesus), wouldn't this negate or devalue the concept of the Trinity?" I kid you not, the person gave me a questioning look and then replied, "Yeah, but John 1:1 states..." At that point, I could only "sigh" internal and politely excuse myself.

I didn't force you to read my comment in this thread. The hidden text and notification implies that. If you are unable to handle my comments maturely, perhaps it would be best for you to stop reading them.
I would no sooner read your comments than I would read comments about the moon being made out of cheese or the earth being flat. I take that back, I have read a couple of posts where you mention the amount of time it took you to cut and paste your replies, it's always quite humorous.

I truly have no idea how you can take my comment (source):

"I wonder if you guys realize how much time it takes to write these posts? I know many of you criticize "copy-pasta." I agree that someone should be knowledgeable about a subject to explain it in his or her words. I am not exaggerating when I state this post alone took about two hours to put together. Hope you appreciate the effort, even if you roll your eyes at the content."

And translate it into:

"I have read a couple of posts where you mention the amount of time it took you to cut and paste your replies, it's always quite humorous."

My comment states it took two hours to write the post in question BECAUSE I didn't cut and paste (a.k.a. "copy-pasta").

The only conclusion I can come up with is you have a serious retention and comprehension problem that is NOT on the same level as my research into many religions presented in an organized way. To be clear, I am NOT saying you lack the ability to read; I only question your ability to understand (or process what you read into proper meaning). Your posts appear to indicate this. Furthermore, I see this lack of understanding in your posts directed towards others. It becomes apparent when you turn hostile.

That said, I'm not addressing your "moon being made out of cheese or the earth being flat" remark since I never made such a comment or even hinted at it. I'm sure somewhere upstairs in that brain of yours, you're thinking about a post I made, but I assure you, you won't find one.

In a nutshell, everything you write either makes no sense comes across as incoherent, aloof in meaning, or made up and more probably a combination of all. I do feel sorry for you at times and hope you mitigate your mental funk.

When you write multiple paragraphs it is sometimes hard to glean what it is that you're trying to say.

TLDR Less is more, clarify, refine and condense. Not everything has to be War and Peace.

Because some people are incapable of basic comprehension or, you know, bothering to educate themselves on the topics of conversation.

you know what the bible says about that?

And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son in law: and the days were not expired. Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law.

- Samuel Ch. 18

Reply below:

Not exactly sure what this means in the context to anything, however, the simple summary of the passage is King Saul had become fiercely jealous of David's growing popularity with his cabinet and subjects. When David was in a position to ask the king to marry his daughter Michal, Saul didn't want money (a standard gift offering). Instead, he gave David a task for which Saul believed would certainly end David's life. Of course, when David returned and gave Saul TWO hundred foreskins (gross) this made Saul angrier. Saul forgot one little detail of his scheme. Jehovah was backing David and would guarantee his success in whatever he did.
