By a factor of 3. That a godling can't last as long as thieves? Not much of a godling was he. You'd think he'd go for the record but he wimps out and dies to end his pain. At least the thieves suffered.

You don't have a clue as to what [sic] means, do you.

True; but see my response below: This implies that at some point, it has been established at fact (since you are referring to it in the past tense). When was this point? False. I can claim that anything exists; whether the claim itself is true or false depends on the amount and quality of evidence available. If what you mean is that a given object or person cannot seriously be claimed to exist without supporting evidence, then I might agree

The Bible
No. Most of us, in fact, don't believe anything the Bible says. --P. G. Simpson

If the third world countries have arable land. If the land exists in such quantities that it can produce enough food to support the population with the modern farming techniques. If the third worlders are able to pay to learn how to use the techniques and afford the equipment necessary to put them into practice. If the available arable land is cultivated and not turned into a parking lot or other agriculturally dead place. There are a lot of ifs

The "diseases of development." As I recall, societies listed as "developing" (between "undeveloped" and "developed") have higher incidences of cancer and stress-related ailments than do people who live in developed societies. Aleutian. Yet another datum that shows a society doesn't need to have a lot of fancy gadgets to be civilized. --P. G. Simpson

Sexual Acts
True. The attack was coordinated around 7 December quite well; bases belonging to the British and Dutch (perhaps also the Australians, but I forget) were hit on the same day as Pearl Harbor and other American installations. Indeed. Japan had been busy gobbling up Manchuria, and the Soviets kept a large army on their eastern borders until it became clear that the Japanese were no longer a threat. As far as I know, this is true. Perhaps he figured that

Internettin' yahoos
Hmmm. Maybe I'll find some tech types and ask them. Thanks for the tips, though. --P. G. Simpson

I'm not sure what the problem is. I'd say it has something to do with the way Win95 is looking at the drive, but I'm not sure. Well. Is there any way to stabilize this at all? --P. G. Simpson

Not sure around 1990 from what I can gather. From "Christianity in Crisis" Hank Hanegraaff Harvest House. This brings us to the third "s," the scams. Faith teachers such as Robert Tilton and Marilyn Hickey have embraced many of the practices pioneered by Pentecostal preachers such as Allen and Oral Roberts (snip)... Twisted texts, make-believe miracles, and counterfeit Christs are common denominators of the Faith movement's cast of characters. (snip) Robert Tilton. Robert Tilton hit the

In college I had to read some work by Mancur Olsen, who was applying something like the principle to social organizations--e.g., "free-riding" will tend to become a problem in organizations larger than a few thousand. And usually something else as well.

Now, now, we promise to let your grandchildren vote in their lifetime. And won't it be worth it to be rid of Quebec? And participate in our wonderful health care system? Interesting. There are grounds for Canadian "paranoia." How about hydroelectric power? 8-) My major reason for skepticism for your scenario is that I have great problems thinking our politicians can think farther than one decade ahead.

Nah, unlike most fundies he's not an "Arminian." (That's a free-willer without the predestination.) His situation is a bit more hellish--as a Calvinist, he thinks God decided before he was born whether he'd be one of the elect or not, he can't know for sure, and there's not a damn thing he himself can do about it.

Acknowledgement.
I'm a generous man, and will give you a second chance to respond, since it looks like I get to add more to my running text of questions and points that you run away from instead of trying to answer.

Or gods. Or goddesses--you've heard of the Muses? I know I've been inspired by Bacchus when writing some poems, praise be to His blood shed for us. You really have no idea of what these two mean to Islam, do you?

Narrator or Transcriber.
Evidence of Moses transcribing clay tablets? Because "These are the generations of X" *precedes* a list of X's descendants? ROTFL! I have five books on Egyptian mythology in my library now. How many have you even seen the cover of? The unearthing of Hebrew writing is the province of archeology. Gee, looks like it supports `Higher Criticism' here! Ah, but you contending that the form *hadn't* been changed. That was your sole piece of "evidence" that Moses had transcribed clay
