Thank You, Defender of My Liberty. I Know Your Cards and Memberships are Protecting Me As I Vomit.

Yep

Gee DungBeetle, it must really suck to be angry all the time, and have no-one but your cats and plants to take it out on.
Thank the Lord for the Seti Forums.
If Setizens are too harsh in their words you can always claim elder-abuse.


Don't worry, if we work to take away his liberties, instead ... the false flag Clyde raises ... he'll be vomiting then as well. Can't win.

Speaking of Politics.

Or perhaps I rather should say science instead.

Everyone knows that we are supposed to be here for the sake of science.

Who are supposed to be speaking for mankind if such a thing should ever be needed?

The church perhaps, with all its assumed or supposed infallibles when it comes to dealing with the subject of science?

Most people probably do appreciate the fact that important scientific discoveries for the most time are being validated by means of a general consensus and not some weird or crazy idea which for some reason may be popping up in the mind of a possibly mad scientist which might be around.

Whether or not it is all about "Sleep and be Happy", or possibly "War of the Worlds" instead, being able to make a distinction of what may appear to be definitive facts may at times appear to be a hard thing to catch or grasp.

The more relevant or clearly defined something may appear to be, the more the whole picture apparently becomes lost as a result and the same goes with the possible truth behind the wole story which might be there all the time.

Definitely the world is full of lies most of the time, but behind many lies there also are truths to be found.

The difficulty may sometimes be about making the possible separation between one given truth versus one other, because a lie is never supposed to reveal the truth behind a given story at all, including those hidden secrets which may always be around.

Definitely Politics may be about the inner circles behind the White House conspiracies and likely other hidden stories as well.

Also Politics may be a way of possibly discussing in which way certain elements being related to the subject of science are being carried out.

For now the way of approaching certain subjects may appear to be valid, but if you happen to disagree with some elements of the discussion by means of given postings that are being made, you may perhaps be doing such a thing by voicing your opinion or concern by posting in Politics.

Doing such a thing might in fact result in progress when it comes to both scientific knowledge when it comes to science as a whole as well as specific results which likely may be at hand.

Definitely there is never a truth being found in an untold story.


Progress? One of our vociferous posters claims "After The Guillotine, things get WORSE for The People. Just History and Human Nature."

Nailed 'it'.

You Da HuWoMan.

To Those letting this Languish for 9 Hours-You.....

Yep.


... you have jobs and are not part of the supposed 47%. I, Gollum, applaud you for working. I also applaud you for having jobs outside the S@H fora and I, Dull, applaud you.

...Don't PISS OFF Da Left....

My dear troll, please know that we lefties staunchly defend your right to stand up and vomit whatever hateful speech you should happen to spew forth from that orifice you call mouth. In fact, I have a current ACLU card to prove it.

You're welcome.

Just know that we reserve the right to challenge you when your hate exceeds the boundaries of good taste and we reserve the right to prosecute you when your hate exceeds the boundaries of civil liberty. I have a current Southern Poverty Law Center membership and a current Americans United For Separation of Church and State membership to prove that too.

They can't even tell who is "left" vs. independent. So=called "anti-capitalist" cannot be entirely "right", either.

Welcome to yet another thread, Gollum. ;) Or, since you change your screen name so often, would you prefer "Smeagol"? "Former possessor of the Precious"?

I am 99.44% certain I am most responsible, on the S@H fora, for working to guarantee the freedom of the Religious (Christian, Mulsim, Buddhist, etc. ...) and Atheist to speak here. (May we call upon, as witnesses, Jeffrey, Chuck etc. ... ?)

What we have in this thread is a threat from one person and an elitist misjudging name-caller also implying a threat.

Nope, but sort of close. Presbyterian. (United)


Then I think your perspective on similarities and differences varies.

I'm not going to give the greatest analysis as it has been a long time since I studied it, plus I have no "dog in the fight" anymore, so to speak.

The reasons for the COE = Anglican = Episcopalian in the US separating from Rome are, of course, not the same as those as Luther's or Calvin's. If I remembered more, I'd address whether they are completely different reasons, on the other hand.

I was raised Lutheran.

In the mid-70s to mid-80s, my church took part in many joint services with the nearest Episcopalian church. When it was at their church with their liturgy, there was much that was the same. Much that was word for word or only slight variations. Musically, close enough for little discomfort it seems.

As for Presbyterians, there is a camp/"re-creation" center in JS' neck of the woods (mid way across the north side of the big lake with is not a great one) that is or was owned jointly by Lutherans and Presbyterians. I worked there two summers. Later, I dated a Presbyterian woman I had met there several years earlier. (It did not go well, but not because of religious beliefs, though, unknown to her, I was agnostic when we dated.)

My terms may not be absolutely correct here, but call Catholicism "high church" as in highly ordered services and a great focus on that ... a ceremony. As Anglicans, Lutherans, Calvinists and Presbyterians were some of the first to separate from Rome, on average, most of it could be called middle church. I suspect, in many cases, the later the splinter (or when a splinter from a splinter), the further from Catholicism and each other it seems. The 4 above, and Catholicism? Probably most different of all is Calvinism. The rest and Catholicism? Though different, provably more zimilarities, in beliefs and practices than you suspected.

Can someone please translate?

Where did Gary says he's Christian?

When did Gary call, specifically Christians, to boycott against "...."?

May we assume "...." = Donald? Or are we supposed to read more people/groups into the nebulous "...."?

Again, your 'Brain' is wrong.

Sarge...

Again, your Posts are a refreshing break from Intellectual Discussions.

But are getting boring.


Yes, CLYDE, you are so right. You are so smart. I am so stupid. You are so tolerant. I am so bigoted. I really appreciate how you consistently point out the real me to me, how your analysis of me is so much more insightful than anyone else's. That includes the analysis of me by your PMlandia friend, "blank guy".

You know you am but what is not id? You are bored? Really? I thought you enjoyed trivializing others like you're on the kindergarten playground.

Welcome back the guy with no name and a deleted posting history.


I suspect that there was a major breach of the Seti Forum database when
User ID: 7787259 decided to become a referee in this playground and
edited all of his posts up to june 3, 2014. The posts weren't hidden, but
rather changed. That's not nice.

There was a moderator that was doing this. I tried to point it out to no avail. ;)

The person concerned was a moderator and moderators can edit their own posts. However moderators cannot edit other peoples posts, only hide or move them.


Can <> should, let alone doing that to scores of his own posts.
This is now off-topic and I'm sure you'll next try to give us a thread to let off steam about it.
Let me preempt that: we've said our peace, I believe. It was obvious well before his modship that could be done; i.e., mods have more than the hour to edit than we do. He's not the only one to have done it, though the scope is far more wide-ranging and it makes no sense to have done so; people can disagree, vociferously so. His erasures seem to have been related to "I want no evidence remaining that I ever spoke to these people."
Bernie, your post provided no new information nor explanation of motive. We have said, in our own various ways, we believe an abuse of power occurred. About 5 hours passed until your post. I believe we have said our peace and no further discussion of it is necessary, most likely, as that person is no longer in a position to abuse the power.

I have been to them all, at least once. Part of our church's preparation for being a member was to attend at least one service at a church of each of the major faiths, including a visit to a synagogue. The Episcopalian service as I recall was very similar to the Catholic service except there was no latin.
We were all impressed that the rabbi got to sip from a glass of wine during his service.


Do I recall correctly you were raised Lutheran?

It could also be that the cooler, denser air is more conducive to the transmission of the signal from the tower to your location, so the received signal strength is higher.

Water is a signal attenuator. Possible that some interfering signal is less when wet (attenuated), hence a better experience. Also possible that the wet roof acts as a ground plane giving a better experience. You could test for that with a garden hose. Finally don't forget that in the winter, without a storm, the air is much dryer than in the summer. Check the relative humidity.

Now today in the digital world, the signal should either be there, or not at all. No snow anymore, but blockies from bad jpeg decompression.

Back in the analog days, I noticed that when a cold weather front passed here in Los Angeles the VHF San Diego stations became available, in the winter, and in the summer they were usually there but not always watching quality.

They changed actresses for the part of Jane Seymour from season two to season three which confused me at first. I also kept waiting for Henry VIII to get plump.

Regarding the church it has always seemed to me that the primary difference between the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England is the Pope. I have never thought of the COE as protestant like the Lutheran or Presbyterian churches.


COE = Episcopalian in the US. Try going to a Lutheran service, then an Episcopalian (or vice versa). Then see if you say the same.

After all, I (along with Clyde) believe it's naive to think we are not going to fail as a nation. Look at history! All nations eventually fail.


Oh, that's what Clyde's been saying?
Thanks for sharing ... what I figured out by age 18.
