The simple fact is, if a number of people turn to a recipe book for instructions on how to make a sponge pudding, they will all end up with a sponge pudding. Some puddings might be drier than others, some could even have a marginally different flavour, but they will all be essentially the same. You won't end up with a sponge pudding, a beef burger and a chick pea lasagne from the same recipe. Yet the same recipe book produced Hillsong, the Westboro Baptist Church, the Spanish Inquisitors and the Amish.

Furthermore, if the author has done their job properly, I should be quite capable of preparing the meal without their personal tuition. Yeah, brilliant counter there, Doug.

I wasn't aware that you claimed to have personally observed God or had a conversation with him, or had actual experience of a real encounter with one or more angels or demons, so my comments were not directed at you. I apologise if they caused offence.

Some of us prefer to live in a real world where actual evidence and tangible proofs count for something, others don't. But even in the darkest days of the domination of the world by religious hysteria, there were those who spoke up for common sense and decency, and there always will be.

The truth is, nobody sees anything with 'lieing (sic) eyes'. I'm sure we've all had some weird and wonderful experiences. The difference between me and you, Doug, is that we attribute those experiences to different things.

I think plenty of sane people see angels and demons. The human mind is an incredible thing, and it processes images and information received in a million different ways. What you see isn't any more insane than what I see. Your explanation for what you see simply differs from mine. Your explanation makes sense to you, mine makes sense to me. Does it really have to make sense to anyone else? Only if the explanation is used as some sort of 'recipe', to steal Craig's analogy, that we all have to follow to the letter.

Now, my husband is a much more creative cook than me. He doesn't follow recipes, he just bungs stuff in a pan and tastes it, and it works. I do recipes. I'm not confident in my own ability to make stuff taste good, I prefer to rely on somebody else to tell me what tastes good. I believe that somebody I've never met knows what they are talking about because they wrote a book on it, and when I make a recipe and it tastes bad, I automatically think it's my mistake. I must have done something wrong, or my cake would look like it does in the picture. I put all my trust in the 'somebody else' based on what I read in this book. I don't even know if said renowned chef even wrote the book, but I believe he did, and so I believe that if I keep trying the recipes, they'll work. They must do.

That's how I cook. It appears to be how some folk live their entire lives. Fair enough. Whatever works for you. If you need the recipe, use the recipe. If it makes your life easier, so be it.

Gloria, is kind of cute that you would suggest that we live in a just world.( Seems ironic coming from a Machiavelli lover such as yourself) Sure the justice system is pretty copacetic for the masses of what the power brokers would call us inconsequential folk, as long as we are to remain inconsequential. But to.the "consequential" people to the powers that be, in this world, their justice system is a whole other ball of wax, a ball of corruption where the justice system becomes another one of their weapons of control.

Thank God for our worthless currency-

The filthy rich, the ones who seem to be "living the unbelievable dream", the ones who seem to have the world by the balls. These well off Bankers, Big business, Fortune five hundred CEO captains of industry, World leaders, politicians, alphabet soup agency heads, probably even judges ... these "success stories" ... well they REALLY trade in a completely different currency that is in fact, worthless to us.

This "currency" REALLY has THEM by the balls... is one that REALLY allows them to "Live the nightmare".

Of course there are some rare exceptions, but for the most part, THEIR currency seems to be : bribery, blackmail, payoffs, coercion, compromise and "hits". Hence, their currency trading is one of: "He has dirt on me, so I have dirt on you. So you will do the despicable, compromising things as I tell you to do, so nobody gets hurt." ( Public disgrace or death. It doesn't just happen in the mafia or movies... art DOES imitate life.)

And of course, as the general population becomes more and more morally bankrupt, the level of disgusting dirt that needs to be held over one of these "currency" traders' heads becomes more and more depraved. This I think speaks to the totally evil and disgustingly depraved Satanic rituals and pedophilia that are being exposed by Wikileaks. These include child rape/ sacrifice in Satanic rituals, not to mention unspeakable sexual acts on children and adults alike. Perhaps the 460,000 plus U.S children a year that go missing ( yes, you read that right) , that's like 1 in 92 American children (under the age of 18) , that are reported as missing.( look into this ghastly number) How many of these do you suppose, are being used in Satanic pedophilia rituals?

Of course the holders of this currency like to spend it (redeem it) on enticing us into believing that this kind of information is "fake news".

Here's a question:
Why don't these mainstream media pundits do their supposed jobs as investigative journalists/reporters and take on these "fake news" reports one by one and systematically discredit or debunk the ones that ARE fake, rather than just with one unilateral brushstroke, paint rhem ALL as "fake news"?
Answer: ( a two fold one)

1) MANY of these stories might actually end up to be true. ( Hence shining a light on them would be very bad, especially to those STILL in the dark.)

2)
That isn't their job anymore. Their job is to attack the ones ACTUALLY DOING what USED to BE their jobs and call them purveyors of "fake" ( non-globalist propogandist) news.


The old dirty "currency" of a cheating spouse is now as worthless to THEM as the penny on the ground that WE don't even bother to pick up anymore.

Is THIS any kind of life for ANY of us?

As Gorge Carlin so famously said: "It's a big club, and YOU ain't in it!"

Praise God!

I'd be willing to bet that many of the members of this "Club" wish desperately that they never "signed on" to the club. The rare ones who still might own their own souls, and still feel the vestigial pangs of their own human soul inside of them. I bet they would trade their home, their three summer homes AND their yachts for the simple, uncompromised, free and safe life of a seemingly "poor sap" like you or I. But they are trapped in their own wicked web.

So next time you find yourself lamenting the fact that you can't seem to afford some luxurious item that you really, really want, be thankful to the Lord that you are still trading in simple dollars.

This is probably another reason why Jesus told us to pray for those who persecute us.

Never once did I say I loved The Prince, DJ.

Man A (Alpha)

Because evolution is accepted as an empirical fact the alpha male is minutely fine-tuned to permit the evolution of life according to Darwin's law.

Man B (Beta)

Because he is irrational he must reflect endlessly in the incomplete state of disobedience, manufactured persecution and dystopian skepticism.

Hey Craig,
Do you mean to tell me that if I were to want to make something like a plum pudding, that I should go to the corresponding, or correctly contextual recipe and follow and apply THAT recipe"s context? That seems quite a radical view from you CD. Lol. Are you blathering on about correct context here Craig?

You say,

"Some puddings might be drier than others, some could even have a marginally different flavour, but they will all be essentially the same. You won't end up with a sponge pudding, a beef burger and a chick pea lasagne from the same recipe. Yet the same recipe book produced Hillsong, the Westboro Baptist Church, the Spanish Inquisitors and the Amish. "

Maybe you answer your own question with that Craig.

Perhaps , for instance Hillssong is a bit spicier, the Baptists a bit saltier dish and the Amish a bit drier dish....Yet all the same dish. Idk what these Spanish inquisitors are.... Perhaps , the likes of Lucifer cooking , or baking himself and slipping a bit of cyanide in the dish? Lol.

So are we to assume you're only mildly (if that) perturbed by the grubby WBC and its "God hates fags" placard carriers, DJ? If there were such a place as hell, those hypocrites would be the guests of honour - but I suppose they profess to be in the correct club, eh? Well, I guess if they are essentially the same as all the other variations of Christianity, that explains a fair bit.

Context has nothing to do with it. And you've still, after God knows how many invitations, failed to produce a "context" in which the murder of helpless infants and the raping and forced slavery of women is a "good thing". At one point, I used to write instruction manuals for a living; well, it was a part of my job, anyway. Note - you're the one who originally referred to this book as such, not me. If I came out with something a thousandth as obscure and full of nonsense as your favourite manual, I wouldn't have had my job for five minutes.
