    The look on that mom`s face says to me, "As soon as that shutter closes, I`m going to murder each and every person within a 1.7 mile radius."

    Or perhaps it`s just constipation.

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David A Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, Lying in a manger. - Luke 10: 12

    When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies. This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby. However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes.

    - Deuteronomy 20: 10-17

    Sorry honkeylips... you need underwear though, so that`s something.

    This morning, one of the things I got was an Art of Shaving kit. In it? A vibrating razor with a pen light built in it. Let me repeat: a vibrating hand-held razor. Is it really safe to shave so close to the jugular with a vibrating, razor-sharp duel blade? Someone wants to off me.

    My parents forgot to get me anything. They forgot on my birthday too back in July, so I reminded them a few weeks ago. Now they`ve forgotten to give me anything for Xmas. I know that sounds rather hard to do, but they have. We`ve done the xmas dinner and what have you, but for those of you moaning, cheer up, at least you got something.

    lostinkorea: That bible quote refers to evil people living in the Israelite`s land. They are not trying to conquer everybody, but just to drive the wickedness out of the land that God gave to them.

    ..and of course you omitted the 18th verse, "That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God."

    Such were their enemies wickedness so bad that it was feared that their abominations would spread if they weren`t dealt with.

    The first 5 books of the bible (which includes Deuteronomy, Numbers, etc.) were written before Christ was born. They are pre-Christian laws for the Jews that don`t apply to modern times.

    "They are pre-Christian laws for the Jews that don`t apply to modern times."

    Jesus would seem to disagree Matt 5:17-20 says

    17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    That`s awesome. Sounds like a really smart girl.

    My son has been a genius with dinosaurs since he was 3. He would tell people what each dinosaurs primary diet was, what their name was (sometimes what the name meant and where it came from) he understands very clearly that dinosaurs are fossils now. And my favorite, if you ask him what happened to all the dinosaurs he will tell you that "the big huge rock fell from space and killed all the dinosaurs by blocking their sun."

    Soz Kego. Here it is again:

    Showed Erin this picture today, taken by the Pathfinder lander on the planet Mars. I asked her, "Hey, guess where THIS photo was taken!", thinking she`d say the desert, or Africa, or simply I don`t know. She took one glance at it, said "Daaaaad, that`s Mars", then went straight back to playing with her dinosaurs.

    It`s official: I`m being out-nerded by a 5 year old.

    Anyways, as a drunken Irishman at Christmas Time, let me be the first to raise the glass of cheer. Despite all our differences, political, religious, philosophical and otherwise, we`re more similar than we are different. And the sooner we appreciate and understand that, the better. Might even save the species. Imagine.

    Right, this old hippie is drunk and going to bed. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a happy, prosperous and healthy 2012 to everyone at IAB and your familys.

    Otto67: You see that "till all be fulfilled" part ?

    Yeah, Jesus fulfilled the law when he died on the cross. Jesus` dying words were "It is accomplished", his blood wiped away the debt of mankind`s sins. Without his sacrifice no one`s `righteousness shall(could) exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees` and be allowed into heaven.

    This was Jesus` way of saying that no matter what good deeds you do, it won`t erase away sin. This is backed up by John 14:6, Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

    Steelgrid: First off, the meatless Friday thing is a catholic tradition, not a sin. Secondly, Jesus sacrificed himself willingly for us, not something God forced him to do. Thirdly, your trolls are the dumbest most obtuse of anyone here at IAB.

    Otto67: Jesus knew what the plan was, he was the son of God. But he couldn`t just go blurt that fact out before it was his time to do so, in front of the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem. That is why he spoke in parables a lot of the time, besides how well does saying, "Because I said so" work with your children when they are misbehaving ? It doesn`t work well now does it ?

    Another part of this is that God has always been a trinity. It started out as The Father, The Word, and The Holy Spirit. God`s word is the law and the word was made flesh, in Jesus. John 1:14

    When Jesus was born, the trinity became The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. When he died he fulfilled the old law and brought a new covenant for mankind. Before Jesus there was no certainty for anyone to go to heaven, not even a scribe, pharisee, or even a high priest. The maze of Mosaic Law, was just too difficult. So, God simplified everything, because he loves us.

    Jesus didn`t say, "I`m changing the law when I die on Calvary" he had to be much more subtle and not reveal all of God`s plan.

    If you plan to propose to your girlfriend, do you blurt it out when you ask her out for dinner the day before ? No, you don`t. You keep things a surprise until the time is right.

    Otto67: Jesus didn`t lie, he was the word of God made flesh, he couldn`t lie.

    Understand that at that time there were groups of Jews ready to rebel against the Romans. They believed only violence would change things and that they could coerce Jesus to fight for them and kill all the Romans with a wave of his hand.

    Jesus was God, he had the capability of killing every Roman and dethroning Herod at any moment, In fact this is what both the Romans and Herod feared, a violent revolution.

    Violent revolution was not part of God`s plan, Jesus was peaceful and non-violent, thus his plan worked in the end because instead of further dividing the world by violence, it began the joining together of many people`s through peace and continues on even today.

    So you see, the `old world` has passed away, and Jesus said he was going to build us a new heaven, when he left. He didn`t lie, he fulfilled the past, present and future of all mankind.

    Yeah, we get it Crakrjak. What a delightful sentiment to human people on this holiday season. Every person on earth who`s not Christian is going to be denied Heaven and instead burn in hellfire for all eternity. All those Muslims, atheists, agnostics, Jews, Hindus, Shintoists, Scientologists, Zoroastrians, Pagans, traditional Chinese Animists, Buddhists, and the various flavours of Christianity which are not your particular flavour of Christianity etc et f*cking cetera are all excluded from your Heaven and are going to the alternative, Hell.

    We get it.

    I maintain that if you, Crakrjak, were born in Iran instead of America, you`d be a mouth-breathing hardcore religious Muslim instead of a mouth-breathing Christian. More importantly, you`d be spouting the same God-inspired, gospel-quoting, bronze-age crap that you`re doing now, but from a different standpoint.

    gerry, so glad to hear you husband got cured of cancer! i hope he is feeling well and things are going great for you both. many, many good wishes for the two of you.

    liked reading all the posts, with the exception of the religious diatribes. why oh why do some christians feel so threatened by us atheists? by their own religious beliefs, the righeous believers will sit at the right hand of their god while the rest of us will languish in hell for all eternity. so why the fuss over us? i`m content in my own decisions and the consequences thereof....

    oh well, happy holidays to all. my man and i worked xmas eve and xmas and will work new year`s eve and new year`s day so our holidays are postponed for a while. but i`m hoping for jewelry, or at least underwear and socks like i got when i was a kid!

    well, one year my older sister was actually given just coal and wood and no xmas presents at all. this happened 60 years ago and not a xmas goes by that i`m not whiningly reminded of this.

    so, the moral of this post is: DON`T MAKE BAD XMAS MEMORIES FOR YOUR KIDS IF YOU CAN POSSIBLY HELP IT. it just makes their sibs suffer.

    Otto67: I`ve already explained, but you don`t want to listen. The passage is Jesus` word, it`s not an either/or thing. You`ve decided to interpret the passage with one track literal mindedness.

    I`m betting, otto, that you are so obtuse that you even believe that when someone says, "When a pig flies", you literally have to see a pig with wings for it to happen.

    davy: I didn`t want to get into this discussion, honestly, but lostinkorea started spouting Deuteronomy, then otto chimed in.

    All I wanted to do is spread Christmas greetings, but nooooooo, that can`t be tolerated by either of them, they both had to incite an argument.

    And, davy, now your joining in on it as well.

    And I`ll maintain that you like arguing enthymemes thinking that there is some lesson in those type of rhetorical questions. Actually, there is not. Trying to equate me with islamic terrorists is not only insulting, it`s stupid as well.

    A wealthy man decides he wants to get rid of his wife but doesn`t want to lose half of everything in a divorce. He happens to know a guy who knows a guy in organized crime so a meeting is set up with "Artie," a hit man.

    Artie tells the husband he can do the job for $5K, but he`ll need a down payment.

    "I never carry cash," the husband says. He looks in his billfold. "All I have is a single dollar."

    "You look good for it," Artie says. "I`ll take the dollar now and you can pay the rest later."

    Soon thereafter, Artie follows the wife into a grocery store and strangles her in a back aisle. But Artie looks up and a stock clerk has just seen the murder. So he strangles the clerk, too. No witnesses.

    But unbeknownst to Artie, a security camera caught the whole thing and Artie was behind bars the very next day. And the headline?

    ARTIE CHOKES TWO FOR A DOLLAR AT GROCERY STORE

    ZsaZsa: That really sort of depends on the chick, My dad bought mom a new refrigerator and stove for Christmas one year, of course there was no way to surprise her with them on Christmas morning, but she loved getting them none-the-less. For full disclosure though he bought her a 3 carat diamond heart pendant for her birthday just a few months before. I bought her a robe she had been looking at, that Christmas, trust me that`s a hard thing to do for a guy to do, buy a woman clothes, so she did get a surprise.

    Actually, there is not. Trying to equate me with islamic terrorists is not only insulting, it`s stupid as well.

    No Crakrjak. Just no. What`s insulting and stupid is you equating devoutly religious Muslims with "islamic terrorists" which *YOU* just did, as you have done many times before.

    But that`s just insulting to billions of Muslims who I don`t know. What`s personally insulting to me and many others, is (some) Christians like you reminding us at this festive time of year that all of our family and friends, our parents, our siblings, our children, all the people we care deeply about are going to burn in Hell for all eternity. Sorry, only the ones who don`t share your particular religious belief system, I forgot that.

    Hey Crakrjak:

    It is just a discussion. You claim (as many Christians do) that the Old Testament does not apply, except where you say it does. Then when it is pointed out a passage where Jesus contradicts that dogma, you say that only part of the passage applies and should be taken as truth, (where Jesus said the law applied until all was fulfilled) and the other part IN THE SAME SENTENCE should not be taken literally but should be equated to the phrase "when pigs fly". Your arguement is laughable. You need to quit thinking it is a good point and find a better way to justify the Book of Contradictions.
