  1. One of my high school classmates (a cheerleader type) has the initials N.I.B. (not counting her middle name, but her maiden and married names). So, I thought this tune fit the tangent. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emw0zRyKQuo
  2. The more I study history, the more I know that this kind of stuff has been going on since Genesis 3. Long of it and the short of it is that there has always been rich and poor, and there always will be - and I accept that. Where did that come from?
  3. Interesting. Is there anyone here that has thought about a holistic approach to medicine? I'd be interested to read your thoughts on the matter. Having said that, to play off of your complaint, there are some prescription "drugs" that should have never seen the light of day in the marketplace. Vioxx, Zoloft, Gardasil, and RU-486 (to name a few). For the FDA to approve these drugs and then to watch them cause serious long-term health problems (and even death) should be enough of a red flag for people to not take the FDA seriously. On top of that, ever notice how the pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars on these "drugs" for advertisements per year?
  4. I actually bought that tune for iTunes. What I noticed is that they took a line and improvised it several different ways. I just don't have the whole album.
  5. 1, I hate talk radio. 2, this time of year is absolutely mind-numbing for this poster. For the life of me, I cannot understand why so many churches and "ministries" such as this feel such a need to fit in with everyone else by offering up their own "Halloween alternatives" such as "Trunk or treat" or "Fall Festival." Don't get me wrong: I'm not knocking Halloween itself. People will do what their hearts are inclined to do. But these alternatives, regardless of the reason and/or rationale, are such a puerile and condescending knock-off of the original and everyone else knows it.
  6. I've actually seen a few in WV in my day, thanks to all the fueling that I have to do at the truck stops in that state. Hasn't really changed my view of them at all. Some of them can actually be more polite than one gal I came across at a gas station right off the corner of Transit and Seneca just a few hundred yards south of the 400 last winter. I was visiting some friends as I stopped through the area. Well, I walked inside this place to get a bottle of ginger ale. This gal, who was probably not much older than a high school graduate, said to me after she slid my card through her register, "Alabama?! What are you doing here!" I told her that I'm originally from this area visiting friends. In retrospect, I missed out on an opportunity to tell her that instead of coming off with such an immediate and brusque reaction, she could have gone so far as to say, "Welcome to Buffalo!", or maybe said nothing at all except, "Have a nice day!" with a smile. I wasn't too bothered by it, but that would have really offended someone from the Deep South who may have had to come up here for business and that may have been his first impression of the area (and not a good one either). The long of it and the short of it is that you get good and bad no matter where you.
  7. Wow! I didn't know that the glaciers possessed divine attributes. That's a new one to me!
  8. No doubt about it! Every time I go through there, I marvel at God's handiwork when He made this world that we live on and give credit where it's due.
  9. I apologize to you and everyone else whom I wanted to reply to sooner on this thread, but I had some issues going on over the past couple of weeks that needed my attention. With all due respect, there are a few problems with your posting. So, I have one question in the bolded section. Can you provide me with a chapter and verse to prove your point? Second, I do believe in science. A lot of its descriptions put a lot of validity in Scripture itself. Johannes Kepler and Sir Isaac Newton fully understood this. However, if you want contemporary scientists who take Creation over evolution, you could look at Dr. Georgia Purdom, Dr. Kurt Wise (who studied under Stephen Jay Gould at Harvard for his Ph.D. dissertation), and Dr. Gary Parker (who started off as a believer in Darwinian evolution until he actually took a look at all the evidence and totally changed his convictions on the subject). It's just that since God created all things, including true science (not the stuff contrived by Charles Darwin and his devoted followers), science is accountable to God. Third, God did want us to understand the world we live in. If you have a Bible on your bookshelf, open it up and you'll see it. It's all right there. However, if you don't have one, I can certainly direct you to several online Bibles. That's easy. It was made around the same time that God created the Heavens and the earth. Are you absolutely sure about that? 1, This question has been asked innumerable times in human history. Oddly enough, even if you read the account of Christ's encounters with the Pharisees, they tried to pull the same stunt with him. God could be right there in front of those who do not believe Him and they still wouldn't know it was Him. 2, Be glad you weren't one of the false prophets of Baal when the prophet Elijah rightly mocked them as they called out for Baal to no avail. 3, Not to be condescending, but even as I don't claim to know more than you, there are those who actually do. They are very much into theology and apologetics and who can easily find a pattern of inconsistency in their opponent's flawed arguments. Listening to a recorded formal debate between Richard Dawkins and William Lane Craig in Mexico City was a classic example of watching an arrogant, pompous Oxford University professor get the smackdown from a Christian philosopher. Oh, but see, those who believe in Creation are unjustly ridiculed in spite of there being a consistently established argument in favor of the six literal days of Creation. Thus, they are also under duress to recant their convictions that God created the universe in six literal days. So, if you're going to try that one on me, then the pot's calling the kettle black. For one, I have to give you credit. You are consistent in hating Christianity, Creation, and capitalism (which was something that was first espoused by John Calvin). You've been unwavering in those areas. Have you stopped to think that dinosaurs co-existed with humans as much as 6,000 years ago? As for man "creating" religion, where's your proof? Or is this an assumption?
  10. I'm sorry to hear about this. Maybe something better will come along to where you don't have to move your family.
  11. Very sad news indeed. Only found out about it a few minutes ago because Jill Kelly posted something on her Facebook page about speaking at Medaille college tonight. She said that she really wasn't into it because of "a friend's" passing and trying to make flight arrangements to go to the funeral. Went to the Recent Deaths notices at Wikipedia, found Kent Hull's name and put 2 and 2 together. Feels worse than a punch to the gut by a battering ram. RIP Kent. You will be sorely missed.
  12. Fixed. You had "dealth", not "death". The strikethrough option was barely noticeable over the "l". Not all death metal is bad. If it has a halfway decent "melody" such as "Hammer Smashed Face" by Cannibal Corpse, that's not so bad. Some of the early stuff by Mortification (especially on their second album, which was almost 20 years ago) was really good. But if it sounds like an undecipherable cacophony that where even my 2-month old niece could play better than that on her musical playset, then it's trash. As for my contribution this time, I may never get these images out of my mind whenever I hear this song. :o
  13. Tell me about it. In retrospect, though, the powers that be probably thought that kids might stumble upon this place and decided to remove it because of the purely outlaw nature and outright expletives heard on that tune. Still doesn't make sense, though, because there's stuff that gets put up here on an almost daily basis that can be equally profane (if not worse) and they get a pass.
  14. I may not remember every tune on this podcast, but the whole episode was just absolutely mindblowing. I may be listening to this one several times tomorrow as I drive. Worthy of a thousand :clapping: !!!
  15. I really don't have the time this morning to see if anyone has ever posted a song by these guys on this thread. However, these guys are, well, a bit different. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BFxS0xnE0k
  16. Did you really have to ask that question??? <_<
  17. For the life of me, I can't understand why a David Allan Coe song would be removed from here.
  18. I can't get these two tunes out of my head. Constantly jamming to them while I drive. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPi8_tyzVOg I can't find the media for "Send It" by Minoru, but it can be found on iTunes. I heard it on John 00 Fleming's Global Trance Grooves podcast.
  19. All in all, a very good Buffalo sports weekend. :thumbsup:
  20. Thanks for asking, but I would rather not disclose that. Just know that I do what I can to be safe and legal out on these roads - not just for my safety but for everyone else's. :)
  21. Yes, it is. Who here has been on I-95 in Georgia? I hadn't been on there in a while and it was still relatively early in the morning. I get on there, drive from the Florida state line all the way up to Savannah, and I rolled the windows down on my big rig. It was so pleasant to get a whiff of that ocean air and drive through all that open road. Yes, the Georgia Low Country is something to write home about. :thumbsup:
  22. Sorry. Not buying theirs or anyone else's arguments. I'm not accountable to any papal magisterium, so therefore I do not have to follow their dualistic thinking about Creation and "evolution". After all, who was present all those millions of years ago to write down accounts of what happened? No one. It's all based on assumptions that grasp for straws and seeks to discredit the Creation account. Therefore, macro-evolution is not only science fiction, but it's also historical fiction. To hold it up as fact is disingenuous - and that's putting it lightly.
  23. Really?! Ok, answer me this. Name one thing that predates Creation.
