    chatter (sf forum statistics)

    Some useless numerology bs. 29 and 43 are prime numbers and add half of 29 to 29 and you get 43 thereabouts.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    I can do better than that, the answer to death and ruin is 666. Looked what happened to the great USSR when the 666 took over there. The walls came tumbling down

    666 was an incorrect calculation/translation. Forget what the correct translation was, doesn't really matter.
    Same as rabbits being cloven-hooved. Same as forgetting to include Cane's wife's name.
    All written hundreds of years after the alleged events. And all taken from much much older religions.
    If you think you've got a new idea, you probably don't know your history.
    I think they mentioned unicorns 6 times also. Must have a good Press Agent.

    Thanks for humour whilst convalescening. Gorbachev skull birthmark was in shape of 666 - enough said. Berlin Wall came down and end of USSR. I recommend back to topic. Regards.

    The issue is the manuscript variations. The Greek and Hebrew letters had a numerical value. Some manuscripts have numerals χξϛ → 666, but a few others have χιϛ → 616. Most spell out the number in words ἑξακόσιοι ἑξήκοντα ἕξ.

    The issue is what the phrase "bringing up what is swallowed" means. Is it sxclusively chewing the cud (rumination) or does it include refection?

    It mentioned the Hebrew re'em, which in some Early Modern English translations was rendered "unicorn", which just means a one-horned animal. It doesn't have to mean a horse with a horn; the Indian rhinoceros or greater one-horned rhinoceros is classified as Rhinoceros unicornis. Re'em probably meant the extinct large cattle beast called the aurochs.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    666 – 616 In the real world the difference is $50. In their world it is all open to interpretation. Could be 686.
    In the real world, according to the Big 4, you owe us $50.
    You want interpretations, we’ll see you in court and then we’ll sell your house.
    So maybe the middle six didn’t work on someone’s typewriter. Could be anything.
    Don’t get me wrong, I am a BIG fan of people who, hundreds of years after the alleged events, can write the largest selling book in history on something that has never been seen or heard by anyone. Kudos.

    So, rabbits are cloven-hooved. Always happy to be proven wrong. Occupational hazard.

    Cane’s trouble and strife.
    Once again, I am proven wrong. Hard to forget the name of someone who didn’t exist.

    Let’s pretend in the beginning was god, a snake and Adam and Eve.
    Let’s do a stock-take.
    We have one all powerful entity who can’t even keep his own house in order. Oh, and I am going to need Sunday off.
    We have a snake/man who has nothing better to do than hang around with the first two Trump supporters.
    We have Adam and Eve who begat Cane and Able. Cane kills Able because he won’t shut up about being a vegan.
    We have Cane going out into the world to find himself a wife. Good luck with that dude. They are all on reality tv!
    Maybe he ran into the mob who were lost in the desert for 40 years.
    40 years, you gotta be kidding me. No trade routes to follow, no stars to guide them, no son to follow. No cell coverage.

    Archbishop of Canterbury years ago said that they were basically all just stories.
    He didn’t mention that they were all borrowed stories from much, much older religions. But stories just the same.

    I heard once that the Australian Olympiad Teams actually have a name, but maybe it’s just a story. Who knows?

    Okay free for all

    Re Able being a vegan. During WW2 Churchill's most despised English politician was due to him being religious, a socialist but most of all for being vegetarian. And Churchill outlived him by ten years indulging in cigars and grog.

    Meat-eaters outliving vegans. First sign of god's existence so far!
