“A review of some of the messianic prophecies that Christians claim were fulfilled by Jesus. It reveals that many of the “prophecies” are nothing more than Christian fabrications, misquotations, and misapplications of passages in the Hebrew scriptures. By the Bible’s own standard, then, Jesus was not the Messiah.”
“The second part of my review of some of the messianic prophecies that Christians claim were fulfilled by Jesus. Many of the “prophecies” are nothing more than Christian fabrications, misquotations, and misapplications of passages in the Hebrew scriptures. By the Bible’s own standard, therefore, Jesus was not the Messiah.”
“Part three of my series on purported messianic prophecies, focusing here on “prophecies” Christian apologists claim predict the crucifixion of Jesus and, therefore, help to establish that he was the Messiah. As Farrel Till correctly wrote, “Since there really were no prophecies of a virgin-born, crucified, resurrected Messiah in the Old Testament, [the gospel writers and Christian apologists] had to twist and distort to give the appearance that Jesus was the long-awaited one.”
“Part four of my series on purported messianic prophecies, focusing here on “prophecies” Christian apologists claim predict the crucifixion of Jesus. As Farrell Till correctly wrote, “Since there really were no prophecies of a virgin-born, crucified, resurrected Messiah in the Old Testament, [the gospel writers and Christian apologists] had to twist and distort to give the appearance that Jesus was the long-awaited one.”
Response to Kabane (Jesus Was Not the Messiah):
“My response to KabaneTheChristian’s response to part one of my “Jesus Was Not the Messiah” series. Thanks for your response, Kabane.”
Old series from 2009…But very interesting.

“In a very special #LwC, for one full hour, we sat down with Dr. Patrick Moore, PHD in Ecology and founder of Greenpeace, and dissected the scam that is modern “climate change”.”
I think the title of this video is a bit missleading…Climate change is happening…The only real conflict, is over what main factors are causing it…and whether or not this current level of flux, is a common part of natural climate change.

Shared for educational purposes, only.
On a side note…It says a lot about the state of the internet, when you start running into more and more websites which actively inhibit the highlighting of their text…hence, making it a chore to get a little quote out of them, so people have a better idea what the link leads to.
The Cannabis Telegraph does just that…Grrrrr…
I hate this trend…Not the least of which, because I have bad eyes, and I largely depend on a speech synthesizer to read webpage articles to me…And I have to highlight and copy the text to my clipboard, in order to accomplish that.

“When does childhood end? What causes it to end?”
Learning consequences?…I’m sure that’s an indispensable part of it, yes.
I agree with this…Though, a lot of people may lose patience with this video, before 2 actually gets to his point…he keeps getting pulled into the game…
It looks like a neat, little game…but I don’t generally like videos that are made in this style…unless the creator can stay focused.
But I found the question interesting…and 2, The Ranting Gryphon, is an interesting fellow.
I would add into this answer [“learning consequence”], wanting independence and pulling away from your parents…choosing your own path.

“Maybe I am missing some obvious facts, maybe I’m being naiive, come on, why are adult/kid sexual relationships CONSIDERED bad (including the basics) …hit me with all the gruesome details!”
Perhaps someone who’s better familiar with this can comment, or add further detail, as I don’t have any links…and I’m patently laymen, when it comes to my attempts at explaining this type of thing…
…But a number of years back, while searching for a “holy grail” that would conclusively connect the integrity of science with the idea of “sex’s unavoidable harm to a child [or “the undeveloped”]”…They came up with chemical and biological alterations, experienced by the child.
As I see it…it essentially fell into two categories…
One is stress related, dealing with issues of conflict, social shame, fear of discovery…holding a secret…feeling of betrayal, to those you know would not approve…etc, etc…The harm showing itself in chemical imbalance, from long term stress…and the kinds of bodily stuff, that can genuinely be fallout of that stress and imbalance.
The second being based on early life exposure, to dopamine released during sex and orgasm. I don’t know where this one exactly goes, except that they claim it is bad for people in certain stages of development, to experience these bursts of dopamine. Whether they were trying to offer this up like a “drug addiction” theme…or they actually claimed that the sex chemicals caused damage, stunting, etc, when exposed to long term…I don’t really recall.
It would be interesting if someone familiar with this line of research could make comment…Give a heads up, on whether it withstood peer review rigor…Give any thought.
I personally don’t even remember who did the study…Potentially, I’ve got information about it, saved somewhere…
It might just be a bunch of psychobabble.
Of course…The first branch can be seen, in the same way as PTSD…In which people have problems, when forced to remain in a high stress setting, long term. It sidesteps the possibility, that the setting could be changed…and just blames the outcome on the chosen villain.
…The dopamine exposure, is a lot more tricky to refute…I mean, who’s going to secure the funding, and do the research on chronically masturbating kids, versus “celibate” ones?
…I’m sure we have a sea of anecdotal evidence, however.
This exact topic [“chemical related damage, from a minor’s sexual exposures”] has been bounding around in my mind for the past few days, ever since a remarkably arrogant, abusive person approached me on Twitter, claiming all this knowledge on CSA studies, on physiological damage from chemical imbalance due to CSA [which he claimed to suffer from]…And made it clear that he’s “above me”, and “above” anything I had to offer in return [including research…which, incidentally, I did offer]…”I have absolutely nothing to say about this issue, anywhere, anytime, under any circumstances”…
He about half had a meltdown, lost his faculties…and spent the remainder of our encounter trying to enflame and goad me into joining a live stream, with him and his buddies…All in the face of previously telling me “I’m nothing special” and “perverts are a dime a dozen”…
His buddies are trolls, who produce garbage media…I told him to get lost.
…But the idea of “chemical damage” has stuck with me…I started having a vague memory, of this issue being introduced and furthered [or at least pushed], in the research field.

“He cares about us and he is worried.”
Agreed…Jordan Peterson is not against trans people…He’s fighting against the criminalization of social speech…and a government that imagines it has a right, a duty and an ability, to do such.
If you want a government that can get away with throwing people into prison, for no genuine reason at all…let them get away with passing these sorts of laws.
