If you expect to get any answers from Ecbarrowes, I think you're going to be disappointed.

Quote from: Ecbarrowes on April 22, 2024, 06:51:12 PMIf you read about an experiment in a scientific journal, that's just words on a page, until you decide to either believe it, or repeat the experiment. Arguing all day against it is vanity. If you're a serious investigator, you'll repeat the experiment.
It is thus: call out to 'the void,' "is any[God] there? If there is a God out there, please make yourself known to me." If you are sincere, you will be responded to.

I specifically stopped believing BECAUSE God failed to respond to me. I was working hard to serve him. I was in multiple ministries, sacrificing time, money, and free labor. I chose my field of study in college based on how I thought I would best serve God with my "gifts." Yet I saw no results. No one was coming to Jesus because of me. My plan for college was derailed when I was denied enrollment in the therapy program, although they dragged me along by letting me take some therapy classes while enrolled in general psychology. My parents were forcing me to change churches constantly, despite my wishes as an adult, causing me (someone who was homeschooled from pre-K to 12th grade) to lose my entire non-familial social circle and have to start over. Multiple. Times. I was confused and frustrated, and I prayed to God for guidance. As always, I got nothing. I even made it clear that if I didn't hear back from him, I was going to leave and never come back, because I was done serving an absent father. I still got nothing but silence. Turns out when you call out to the void, that's all you find. If you think you hear anything else, you're not calling out to the void; you're yelling in a cave, and that's your own echo you're hearing.

Also, I'll repeat my three questions, in case you missed them:

1. Do you believe that God has all the omni qualities often attributed to them? Omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence?

2. Do you believe that believers go to Heaven and that unbelievers go to Hell?

3. Do you believe that God wants everyone to go to Heaven, or to know him?

NYT
QuoteJustice Juan M. Merchan will hear arguments over whether the former president violated his gag order before The National Enquirer's former publisher takes the stand.
As far as I'm concerned, inciting your constituents to violence or to riot at the Capitol is tantamount to yelling, "FIRE," in a crowded theater. Especially, when so many constituents are such wack-a-doodles. But still, they are going to hear arguments over this. Seems like a waste of time to me.

I was following the minute by minute written updates in the New York Times, and I kept thinking, "Is this guy's name really Pecker?" And then I would think, "Why doesn't he change it?" It was hard to concentrate on the actual content of the comments.

Quote from: Susan on April 22, 2024, 02:30:35 PMSo, Barbie didn't pass Top Gun in sheer dollars, although it came quite close. But it won an Oscar this past month!

An incredible run on the box-office, too (the biggest movie of 2023!).
Hyper-female beat hyper-male? O tempore, o mores!
