    The first couple of times I read it through I read KJV, but now I read the NIV. It's just easier to read as an American. I read the KJV for the same reasons as many purport to read it, for it's "accuracy". But people shouldn't be so quick. It isn't entirely accurate. I had the fortune to read some Leo Tolstoy letters along with "What I Believe" when I was young, and in there he describes his search for accuracy. It taught me that although it's largely accurate, there were some political choices made in passages here and there. My basic method is as follows: Start with the NIV. If there is scriptural confusion, check cross verses in different versions and read the parallel commentaries (Biblehub.com is great for this). If it's Old Testament and you want even more in depth references, check the Septuagint (the Greek translation that the early church was using) and the Torah. Here are a couple sites to check those (https://www.ccel.org/bible/brenton/index.html and https://www.chabad.org/)

    I hate it all, but a piece inside me fantasizes a bit about Trump losing. I think the sweet liberal tears I enjoyed when Trump won in 2016 might pale in comparison to watching MAGA blow its top when it's false god is destroyed. Everyone expected Hillary to win in 2016, just like everyone is so darn certain Trump is going to win. I care not. Two heads of the same dragon.

    Without "Kludge is a douchebag" option, questioning the polls legitimacy. In all seriousness, does it matter? This is all America will talk about for the next 6 months. Then we'll get a couple months of boring crap before whoever is in charge follows Israel's orders and starts another war.

    So, to me, it has all the hallmarks of a weapons test. The official narrative is that it was an accident, or some kind of oversight, lack of testing etc. But we dont' really know. The fix was basically to restart every server affected in safe mode and remove the offending binary. But it was a binary (.exe). We don't know what it was, just like we don't know why it crashed Windows (another opaque binary). Are all of these companies allowing an internet connected privileged binary running in production dumb? Probably. But these are sprawling systems, so many components of which are outsourced. Management gets schmoozed into contracts, everything gets pushed into centralization so entities like Palantir, et al can have unfettered access to as much data as possible. Isolation costs money and requires talent. What's the incentive when the goal is centralization? They need accidents and ransomware attacks because those show the incompetence of bureaucracies and the desperate need for SaaS, the "cloud" (i.e. someone else's computer), and fed-compliant this and that.

    Yeah, it's funny, JD Vance was on Twitter posting about how the dems are basically being hypocritical saying "if he shouldn't be in the race, then he shouldn't be in the office". But even this is just more cries of "Hypocrite!" This is the apex of conservative commentary: "The other side are a bunch of really big hypocrites." Great. You want a cookie? You conservatives are better liars than the "liberals". But as a fictional wise man once said, "I like my Nazi's in uniform." It's the ones clever enough to hide their real agenda that are more problematic.

    No I pay the $20 a month. This is output from the latest GPT-4o version. It allows you to upload files. It's great for summarizing content, editing pretty much any kind of document you want. You can also use it for OCR. For instance, I've downloaded PDF's of old scanned out of print books on Google Play Books, and it can read them and find stuff, or reprint it for you. It can also interpret images and do basic visual math problems. The biggest benefit of paid version is the size of the context window (I can upload large documents and have long conversations) and the usage limit (can use it all day long). ChatGPT does have weaknesses, but for what I mostly use it for, not a biggy. Grok isn't as good at research stuff, but it is really nice for searching real time news.

    Trump is an unrepentant murderer who swore an oath to God to defend the Constitution and did what every other president does and ignored it. The other guy at the rally got shot in the head, where was his warning? Israel is carpet bombing women and children and raping prisoners. They had foreknowledge of the Oct. 7th attack, and applied the Hannibal directive to increase the death count. All the RNC can do is pray for the murderers, lick boots, and cry about how they don't have enough weapons to murder more. Ukraine war has wiped out an entire generation of young men. The murdering and weapons dealing went continued unabated on Trump's watch. Trump deployed a bioweapon against the people of the united states that killed and will kill who knows how many people, and now the states are forcing this on babies and children. The list goes on and on. And THIS my friends, is the poster child for being on the side "against absolute evil"? If this is the end, ladies and gentlemen, let me assure you there ain't no two sides. It's God against the whole planet. It is revenge upon ALL of the nations. It is the time of Jacob's trouble (Christians will also feel the pain very severely). Only a small remnant will be saved who will cry out in a spirit of mourning begging God to stop and have mercy.

    That's the point though, isn't it? Anyone can make the case that God is on their side. It's fake fake Christians and pandering liars that think God cares about their non-biblical interpretation of His plans. A Christian's job is to obey God, not try to get inside His head to justify yourself. The most obedient Christian was mocked, betrayed by his friends, arrested, beaten, tortured then executed. That's why the world hated Him. He wouldn't jump off the cross, break it into pieces and beat the Romans to death with it so they could Make Judea Great Again.

    Likely CIA psyop bitcoin has successfully conflated the idea of digital CURRENCY and digital BANKING in people's minds. Even I feel Hayek, Rothbard and others missed the boat on the actual missing component of sound money solutions for the common man to fight the banksters. The solution is more related to banking than currency. Bitcoin is a good bank with a bad currency. But even if the currency was good (i.e. 'sound') it's still missing a reserve distribution layer, a.k.a. the "clearinghouse". I've been in software development for a couple decades and spent a good decade obsessing about 'money' systems. The blockchain is good for cutting down theft in a global system, but honestly you don't need all that if you were just trying to get something grassroots going. You could build a gold-backed reserve banking system with paper ledgers just as easily. Palantir doesn't look like anything special to me. "Data analytics". Ok, so like SSIS servers? A data consolidation and transformation concept that's been kind of standard since the 1990's? Palantir just looks like a shell company organized by a bunch of rich insiders who have lobbied enough people that they've accumulated a significant market share of government and private sector tech contracts.

    Of course, Biden has COVID-19, and then they can springboard from his "Positive" case to continue the narrative that SARS-CoV-2 is on the rise again, which means the incoming drop boxes for "mail-in ballots" can be warranted in order to "keep people safe from its spread." :rolleyes:

    His whole schtick seems to be "There's only so many weapons. We can't help out Israel as much as we should be because we're wasting bombs in Ukraine." Other than that, and not having a rock-hard boner to bomb Iran, he's basically Lindsey Graham.

    It's like Obama running as a Republican. I'm gettin' the Bush/Cheney feels with this arrangement. Trump is P.R., Vance runs the country. I give this write-up an F. It's sounds more like how an actual libertarian might criticize an anarchist. "Just do whatever you want? Political power is bad? How's that gonna work?" Not a single mention of the role of government. Judging from this writeup, I'd assume the purpose of the federal government is to 'fight evil' I guess and implement a nanny state? This tactic seems to be more and more prevalent. "All right commies! New plan! Everybody needs to register Republican, grow a beard and reference books by smart people. Anyone who disagrees, you call them what you are."

    Anti-christ talking there. If you do not acknowledge Jesus Christ the Father don't give two squirts of piss about your prayers. Especially when you are using clearly biblical phrases like "Light of the World" which is a clear reference to Christ in the Bible and applying it to this violent and sinful nation. Woe to you crazy lady.

    I used to believe the federal reserve thing for a while too. Then I saw "NUMEC: How Israel stole the bomb and killed JFK" https://ryandawson.substack.com/p/numec-how-israel-stole-the-atomic-fde?utm_source=publication-search This is a much more convincing analysis of the historical facts surrounding both the deaths of Bobby and JFK. In short, JFK and Bobby were both involved in trying to force AIPAC (maybe not called that back then, video has details) to register as a foreign agent. How is Bobby involved? Well, at the time he was Attorney General. Also, there was significant investigation into Israel affiliated agents stealing fissile material from U.S. uranium enrichment plants and smuggling it into the Israel nuclear facility in Dimona. In short, these Americans were attempting to prevent Israel from acquiring nuclear weapons. They were also murdered. Ryan makes a great case that this is all connected.

As for what he was saying you weren't being consistent on, it was the fact that at first you said the Bible doesn't say have a relationship with Jesus (actually it does) and then you shifted to "The Bible doesn't say the gospel is have a relationship with Jesus" (It doesn't....but nobody on this board said it does). Why it's who hard for you to just admit that I don't know. If you are looking for exact language says that...well where does it say grace is irresistible?

    "Oh, the Bible is "bullshit"?" Nope. Are you implying that the only thing you have to contribute to threads are Bible quotes? Your non-Biblical observations (and there are many) coupled with your choice to use Bible quotes to derail threads (which I'm fairly sure was not the original intent of any of the authors OR the Divinity behind them) are what is bullshit. Get thee behind me, Satan, and get on my ignore.
