One weird thing I have noticed about women (yes, this will be a broad generalisation, but it happens all too frequently to not be thing) is that many have a complete inability to acknowledge the consequences of their actions, a disconnect of cause and effect. hence their confusion when they get blowback for whatever they do and say.


it's not just you, I think this is a general thing that has been brought about due to the way the education system and especially universities coddle them. In my opinion, it is less of a gender based thing and more of a class based thing, working class women don't have the time and can't afford to bitch about this stuff and behave this way. Middle/Upper class women however have been so coddled and never been told no or to shut up their whole lives.

Now they're slowly beginning to enter into the real world they've realised that the world doesn't revolve around them and worse. There are people who actually not only disagree with them but openly hate them. Well in their heads the only people who could possibly do that are misogynists and Nazis because those are the only types of people who would disagree with their beliefs.

I'm vividly reminded of a time when some working class waitress who got shit over being white while she was trying to do her job and it was some extremely privileged cunt from Oxford who had been indoctrinated into this shit. Just because he was black, he genuinely thought that she was still privileged despite the fact that he went to fucking Oxford.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/rhodes-must-fall-campaigner-ntokozo-qwabe-oxford-university-claims-cape-town-waitress-white-tears-a7037911.html

He said: "Even if she’s working class, she is linked to whiteness. By virtue of her skin colour, she is privileged.


Now this little incident is where it happened with a man so it's not necessarily gendered, but women I think are more likely to have this sort of mentality. When you understand the ideology though you realise as he states himself, he's black and she's white, therefore she has white privilege, her social status doesn't matter, it's the colour of her skin.

Hope this goes to some way explaining their racist and sexist way of thinking, these are people who come from extraordinarily rich backgrounds or are from communities that are largely cut off from the outside world and don't have to deal with the consequences of the policies they support.

In the world of anti-capitalists and feminists, a black millionaire is more of a victim than a white homeless man.

The fact that children will grow up and question the reality of God is truth. It happened to my own child. I had been like most Christians and was ignorant of the many falsehoods of Christmas as well as so called other Christian days that are celebrated. Because I had lied to my child about the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Santa when she got older and discovered these fairy tales were false, she questioned my truthfulness of God. I wish I had been smarter in my decisions. So I would say to parents of children: Stop lying to them, it will hurt their relationship with God.

Quote# 141475

God's promises are true

Can we believe and trust that God keeps His promises. He has promised to be with us always, and His promises are true.

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5.

When things in this life seem hopeless and we have problems come our way, even if it looks as if God is far from us. He is with us.

We can trust God's promises, because He does not lie, nor change His mind.

"God is not man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent." Numbers 23:19.

Many times when God seems so far away, He is actually carrying us.

God knows what we are going through and we can trust Him to be with us.

He never promised that our way will always be easy and no problems, but our greatest comfort is knowing that He is with us, no matter what.

We can be assured that God's promises are true.

Quote# 141473

Then there's Brian Wilson's song, God Only Knows. Although the song didn't become popular at the time, it has become an icon of the Beach Boys. The song is extremely popular nowadays and is cherished worldwide. The only problem is that Brian Wilson isn't sure there is a God. When asked by interviewer, Andrew Schwartz, "Are you thinking about God these days?", Wilson replied:

"I think about God, yes, and I wonder if there is a God. And if there is a God, will God please help me through my hard trips." —SOURCE, INTERVIEW: Backtalk with Brian Wilson


I find it utterly disturbing that any individual could sing about a God he's not sure exists. To make matters even more freakish, Wilson states...

"...I've gone beyond him (Phil Spector) now. I'm doing the spiritual sound, a white spiritual sound. Religious music ... That's the whole movement. That's where I'm going. It's going to scare a lot of people ... That's where I'm going and it's going to scare a lot of people when I get there."

—Brian Wilson quoted in Jules Siegel's article, Goodbye Surfing Hello God!


Here's a guy who wants to produce religious music; but isn't sure if God exists. Interestingly, Brian Wilson in the quote above speaks of a "white spiritual sound"; which is a deviation from his "dark stuff" mentioned in the quote below. But, ironically, Wilson is still unsure of God's existence. I want you to notice carefully here that you can sing witchcraft or religious music, and still be totally void and ignorant of God and His Word. Wilson hasn't found God, he's found religion; and religion is the most godless thing on the planet. You need Jesus Christ Mr. Wilson; not religion.

"We were doing witchcraft, trying to make witchcraft music." —Brian Wilson quoted in Nick Kent's The Dark Stuff (pg.27.)


Everyone reading this article needs to be warned about the evil music of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. Obviously, Wilson is NOT a born again Christian; but, rather, is a child of Satan (Ephesians 2:2). It is frightening when people, who don't even know if God exists, write "spiritual" music for the masses to listen to. Brian Wilson is of the world, and the world receives their own (John 15:19). Wilson is the enemy of God (James 4:4).

We get that think this was a serious crime. We get that you would had your child (if you had one; which it's obvious you don't) you'd have your own child thrown in prison and put your own son on (in your own words) "a sex offenders list". We get that you would have your own 14 year old son "prosecuted and ostracized".

See, most of us who are REALLY parents have a more rational way dealing with family problems; and that is to discipline, counsel, punish, and (when necessary, get our children help. You're the type that feels you have some right to inject yourself into the business of other peoples' families. You think you have some sort of ownership over peoples' lives. Most of us just want to get through our family issues, and YES, cover up our dirty laundry because, quite frankly.............. IT'S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS. The Duggars dealt with it in their own way. How they dealt with it worked for them. The kids went on with NORMAL lives with their own families and don't need people like you coming along and trying to dictate to them how they should deal with their own problems.

You try to portray yourself as some conservative libertarian, when it's blatantly clear that you're nothing but a progressive,government-involved-in-everything, activist, busybody.




Everyone huh? By my count most have no opinion or are staying out of it and there are 4 or 5 on each side. But you can count that as 'everyone' if you want

You have made your point clear too. You would hide your son's criminal activity even when he repeats it numerous times and violates 5 different grls and you would teach him to not take personal responsibility for his actions.

Yes, I would hide my 14 year old son's 'criminal' activity because it's none of your damn business. You're a damn busybody thinking you're entitled to know what a family's 14 year old kid is doing. What happens in my house is my own business and how I deal with it is none of your business. What you fail to realize is how the Duggars dealt with Josh worked for them. They got Josh the help he needed and it worked. You'd have your kid in prison and deemed a pedophile for life. That just freaks me out that you'd be that kind of parent. I hope the hell you never have kids, because you're in for a rude awakening. But even this is a waste of time because you think you have it all figured out.

Now you go on and have the last word (because I know you just can't stand to have someone else have the last word), because I'm done with your ignorance and nonsense.

"From Whence the Madness?"



Delusion: noun: perceiving that which does not exist. It's the just desserts of those who scoff at a certain Good Book, who won't admit their slavish devotion to its principal nemesis, the god of this world.

Enter a most unexpected roadblock to the plans of their one-world messiah. His election could not have happened without divine providence, a fact that earns him the rabid hate of all to whom truth is like pulling a cross on Dracula. He contends with a malevolent media wholly prostrate before a certain political party.

Having evicted truth, they embrace Delusion, that masked lover whose poison whispering waltzes them ever farther leftward, over a cliff into uncharted realms of insanity. These enlightened elites obsess over banning plastic straws while violent illegals try to storm the border fence. Their word police demand 'you guys' be replaced by the gender-gutted 'y'all'. The list of said genders now tops 57 in that ongoing effort by Nemesis to undo all that was wrought by the Creator.

America, last obstacle to the globalist pipe dream, rots from within, courtesy of a certain party having well earned such sobriquets as Dims and Demoncraps. Having fraudulently taken the House, they now face the novel situation of having to actually do something, in lieu of impotently sniping away from the sidelines. Their self-serving agenda, of course, is endless and pointless investigations in support of the unholy 'resistance', better translated as 'communist coup'.

At this point, the enemies of freedom have outgrown the playpen. The place they've gone makes our traditional stage seem normal by comparison, a set we've always known as. . . .The Twilight Zone.

"But you actually imagine that merely spouting words with no evidence whatsoever that they are remotely true means ANYTHING?"

Oh, but there is lots of evidence. Creation itself screams that there is a Creator. And the Bible itself proves who God is by it's ever constant prophetic fulfillments.
Did you know that the Bible says there would come a time when all buying and selling would be done with a mark that would include the numbers 666? And that these numbers are the main part in the barcode system we use for.... wait for it..... buying and selling?
And Jesus fulfilled hundreds of specific prophecies when He came. Born in Bethlehem. Born of a virgin. Would be a Nazareth. Etc etc etc... A statistical impossibility that happened in just His life. Let alone all of the other prophecies that show God is who He says He is. No other book like it in the world.
Because you are ignorant of these and so much more does not make them "no evidence whatsoever".

Quote# 141461

In a 2014 debate when he was running for the U.S. Senate, acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker said judges should have a Christian worldview, and that a judge with a “secular worldview” would be problematic, according to reports from that time.

Whitaker was answering a question. Erickson had asked the candidates “what criteria” they would use to block President Obama’s judicial nominees. One candidate, Sam Clovis, said he would vote for judges who could link “natural law” to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, Basu wrote.

Mark Jacobs said he would look for someone who would "not legislate from the bench." Joni Ernst echoed that view, adding the judge would need to understand that America's laws "all came from God."

But Whitaker went the farthest: "Natural law often times is used from the eye of the beholder and what I would like to see — I'd like to see things like their world view, what informs them. Are they people of faith? Do they have a biblical view of justice? — which I think is very important because we all know that our government ..."

"Levitical or New Testament?" interrupted Erickson.

“I’m a New Testament,” continued Whitaker. “And what I know is as long as they have that world view, that they’ll be a good judge. And if they have a secular world view, where this is all we have here on Earth, then I’m going to be very concerned about that judge.”

democrats are the party of rape.

They want to put frat boys in prison for consensual sex with a drunk girl, but when it comes to violent, forced rape, the democrats are full on proponent. Just check out the threads on the Muslim rape jihad and you'll see all the forum leftists defending rape tooth and claw.

democrats are promoters of violent, forcible rape.




In the 2012 Todd Akin spoke of "real rape." The democrats savaged him for it. Now democrats are the party of rape, so it's not surprising.

Akin was right of course. What the left calls "rape" involves generally young people who drink too much or use drugs and end up having sex. If the girl regrets the sex then the boy is put in prison and called a "rapist." The left has created a climate of fear in what is essentially a Victorian era attack on normal sexual activity,

But rape, real rape, is a violent act. It's more about power and domination than it is about sex. And of course the left, the democrats, are major apologists and supporters of violent, forcible rape. Muslims are victimizing women all across Europe, but the democrats demand we be culturally sensitive and not complain.

The left is at war against women, and rape is just a political toy for them. If it can be used to create fear and oppression on American campuses, then the faux-rape will be pushed to absurdity. The goal is the neuter American men and create an environment of fear. But real rape is also a tool for the left. Real rape leaves women traumatized and often scarred for life. But the left excuses it as a cultural expression by their Islamist allies.

Quote# 141455

The business community of Las Vegas, Nevada, has recently spent a lot of money advertising the slogan … “What HAPPENS In Vegas, STAYS In Vegas!!!” As a result, business has boomed in Las Vegas! People are enticed with the thrill of pleasuring themselves with sexual sins, gambling, booze, and many other forms of wickedness. God sees the evil and Romans 1:32 tells us God will judge sinners.

The Casinos of Sin City U.S.A. are filled with gamblers, prostitution is a major attraction in Nevada (legal and illegal), escort services are always looking for more whores to defile themselves for money, booze and illegal drugs flow through Vegas like rain through a gutter in a thunderstorm, strip joints are everywhere, homosexuality is commonplace—and God is angry with AMERICA!

Americans can’t seem to get enough of SIN CITY! Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with advertisements to come to Sin City, where one can indulge in wickedness and sexual immorality, and no one will ever know. But don’t be fooled friend, God knows! Not only does God know what sins you are committing, He’s keeping track of them in Heaven … in a BOOK!

“…and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works” —Revelation 20:12


What kind of works has God written down about you? What kind of works will God be writing down about you in the months and years to come (i.e., if you’re alive)? Don’t believe the satanic lie that your sins will stay in Las Vegas—THEY WILL NOT!

Las Vegas is so evil that the official logo of their Chamber of Commerce is… SIN CITY! The Old Testament cities of Sodom and Gomorrah weren’t anywhere near as evil as Las Vegas. The inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah didn’t have a Bible, or the exposure to the truth that we have today. Men have since sought out many evil inventions (Ecclesiastes 7:29). They didn’t have all the pornography in Sodom that exists today. America is much more accountable to God than Sodom and Gomorrah. America has been blessed with many mighty preachers, Bible-colleges, Christian radio stations, Christian books, Gospel hymns, Christian publishers, and Bible-believing churches everywhere. Sodom and Gomorrah had none of these!

[PHILLIP GEORGE, former FSTDT commenter]

Burn witches.

It's a policy statement. How complicated is this? Witch burners have been shunned, ostracized, lampooned, marginalized, discriminated against, deplatformed. Protect your witch burners and they'll protect you.

Jeremy Renner's quasi documentary "Hansel and Gretel" is all the evidence we need.

Note to self: Don't enter residential premises constructed from high sugar content building materials.

Unless YHVH builds a house they labour in vain. I think George Washington thoroughly knew this concept. I think he was hoping his posterity would include a few good witch burners..... Join the dots team.

[DIRK MANLY]

Recall from your nursery rhyme and fairy tale days....

What is the ONE tangible, concrete, objectively identifiable behavior that all witches have in common (even Baba Yaga, a well known witch in a nation whose origins are in the Scythians)?

EATING CHILDREN.

There's a reason Witches were ALWAYS burned at the stake.

There are other indicators (e.g. "casting spells")... but the one thing that every culture notes about witches is killing and eating children.

The Biblical word “lasciviousness” in Ephesians 4:19 is defined as “driven by lust; preoccupied with or exhibiting lustful desires.” Ungodly television shows like Dance Moms cause lasciviousness, provoking men and women alike to lust, promoting pedophilia (sex with young children). According to a study released in December of 2010 by the Parents Television Council (PTC): “Hollywood is shockingly obsessed with sexualizing teen girls, to the point where underage female characters are shown participating in an even higher percentage of sexual situations than their adult counterparts: 47 percent to 29 percent respectively”

I'm not saying that it is right for men to attack women, but I am saying that women who dress scantily, promiscuously and sensually provoke men to do so. No one deserves to be raped, but women who cloth themselves like harlots get what they asked for. You can be an idiot if you choose, but that doesn't change the truth!

Now, let’s say that one in ten people are genuine born-again Believers (which I highly doubt). We are clearly told in Matthew 7:14 that few people ever make it to Heaven! ... “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT” (Matthew 7:14; See also: Luke 13:23,24). How tragic! How horrible! Honestly, I would be very surprised if more than one out of every hundred people are truly saved and on their way to Heaven!

Consider the 1,000,000,000 people in China who know not the Lord Jesus Christ! Consider the 1,600,000,000 Arabs (Islamic Muslims) who worship Allah and honor the prophet Mohammed, but they do not honor the Lord Jesus Christ. Consider over 1,000,000,000 Roman and Orthodox Catholics around the world that worship Mary, and are trying to earn their way into Heaven through keeping the Seven-Sacraments, confession to a priest, and good works. They are all hellbound in their sins and unbelief.

On and on, religion and more religion! Countless billions of people are trusting in their religion to save them instead of the Lord Jesus Christ. Surely, nine out of ten people in this wicked world are bound for a Godless, eternal Hell. I have no doubt whatsoever that 90% of the people in this world are going to Hell. Why? For one simple reason friend, they do not have the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. They have never believed the Gospel message. They have been deceived by Satan (2nd Corinthians 4:4).

Protesters have called the migrant caravan an 'invasion' and are accusing the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They are concerned Mexican taxes might be spent to care for the group as they wait, possibly months, to apply for asylum in the US

Korea – Unification, but Does Not have to be ‘German Style’

It is strange that when you come from the south, near to the DMZ (De-militarized zone, which divides Korea into two parts), you will see many flags and sentimental ‘peace’ slogans, but nothing that would represent the points of view of the North Korean people. All the flags are those of ROC (Republic of Korea, otherwise known as South Korea).

Many people near the division line have turned this entire area into a tourist trap, with observation towers ‘to get a glimpse of North Korea’, with stores selling ROK and US military ‘souvenirs’, even old military gear. As if North Koreans were some rare animals living in a cage, fascinating to study and to observe, but dangerous to touch.

Yes, all flags here are those of the ROK. Even if the two flags are crossed, in what should be a fraternal symbolic unison, they are always two identical ones – those of South Korea. This looks truly bizarre, but that’s how it is.

Something always seems to be desperately missing in this South Korean ‘strive for peace’ and for the re-united Korea. And what is missing is somehow totally basic: it is at least some essential symbolism from the north – the DPRK!

I know both parts of Korea – DPRK and ROK. And what worries me, is that it looks as if the South thinks it can pull this entire ‘businesses of unification’, alone, without considering the needs and desires of the other side.

And the West takes it for granted that the North will be, eventually, simply swallowed by the South. Because it is used to get what it wants. Because in its fundamentalist zeal, it is not even capable of considering the sensitivities and goals of other political, philosophical and social systems.

The plan of both the West and South Korea is simple, although it is mostly never clearly defined, for ‘strategic reasons’: ‘Once the moment of potential unification arrives, the DPRK would simply cease to exist, as East Germany ceased to exist three decades ago. Right after that, the entire Korea would be run on capitalist principles, under the ‘patronage’ and diktat of the West.’

And both the people and the leadership of North Korea will just fall on their knees and surrender, after the masses break down the border fences with their bare hands. Ordinary people will happily renounce their system, as well as the several decades of determined struggle and sacrifice. Everything will be thrown to the altar of mighty South Korean corporations and the pro-Western regime. Correct? Keep dreaming!

Korea is not Germany. And the second decade of the 21st century is very different from those bizarre, confused years when Gorbachev brilliantly demonstrated to the world, how much damage one naïve and useful idiot could cause to his own country and the entire planet.

The truth is – North Korea will never disintegrate the way East Germany did for many reasons, one of them being that, German history is very different: Germany was divided between 4 victorious powers after WWII. The Western part did not necessarily want to be capitalist and pro-Western (US and UK forged the post-war elections), and the East did not necessarily want to be in the Soviet orbit, either. Let’s be honest: the entire country was, just a bit earlier, running amok, shouting bizarre slogans and salivating under swastikas, maniacally admiring a murderous psychopath.

No, North Korea was not and is not East Germany! It was not ‘designated’ to any bloc. It fought a tremendous battle for its own system; it lost millions of its people during the brutal war, or call it genocide, committed by the West. And in the end, after receiving fraternal help from China, it finally won.

Since the beginning, the DPRK was an internationalist country, very much like Cuba. Not yet fully recovered from horrific devastation, it helped to liberate great parts of Africa.

It always knew what it wanted, it fought for it andin the end, it achieved many of its goals!

It never crumbled under sanctions and the combined propaganda of the ROK and its Western backers.

Even after the Soviet Bloc collapsed, it did not change its course.

It is an amazing country, no matter what some people think about its political system. And North Koreans are amazing people (I was privileged to film there, for my ‘poetic’ 25-minute film “Faces of North Korea”). They will not sell their ideals for bigger cars and a pair of designer jeans.Just like for Cuba, the North Korean motherland is not some commodity.

Then also imagine China and Russia, how ‘ecstatic’ both countries (increasingly under threat from the West) would be, if the entire Korea were to fall into North American hands. Imagine those military bases intimidating Herbin, Dalian, Beijing, Khabarovsk and Vladivostok!

South Korea suspects that the North will not yield.

They have tried everything: erecting enormous propaganda palaces like that infamous “War Museum” in Seoul.

They broadcasted their propaganda sermons via radio stations, even huge loudspeakers, placing them right near the division line. They joined efforts with the West, trying to isolate, even starve, their own sister in the north. Nothing helped.

ROK used to censor the press, disappear and murder its own dissidents, torture and rape political prisoners. All that, just in order to break any sympathy left for Communist ideals in the South.The South Korean campaign of terror was horrible, only comparable to those in South America under the right-wing dictatorships, and of course to that in post-1965 Indonesia.

Seoul never really apologized to the victims. Unlike in Taiwan, no monuments or museums were erected to the fatalities of the right-wing terror.

Trying to ‘soften’the DPRK by sanctions, arms race, and intimidation, has not brought any fruits. And it never will. Just the opposite: North Korea managed to harden itself; to mobilize and learn to produce basically everything: from automobiles to rockets, from computers to cutting edge medical equipment and medicine.

The only way for the two parts of Korea to find a common language is to show to each other deep respect.The German scenario would not, and, never should work here.

Both flags have to fly next to each other. Both political and economic systems have to be respected. When talking about unification, both ‘ways’ should be considered.

If South Korea were to ‘devour’ the North, nothing good would come from it:only more tension, discontent and possible confrontation. The North is a proud land. It has achieved plenty, alone. It has survived, against all the odds. It has helped oppressed parts of the world, honestly and generously. It has much to be proud of.Therefore, it will never surrender.

Yet, Korea is one nation and it is longing for unity. It will get it, but first: the ‘two sisters’, both beautiful, both brilliant, both very different, have to sit together and talk honestly and sincerely. They have done it before, and they will do it again. Both, together, are forming a family. But they cannot live together in one room. Not yet. In one house, yes, but in two different apartments.

And when they talk and try to build their home, again, there should be no interference from outside. They don’t need anybody to tell them what to do. They know, they will find a common language if left alone. It is all possible, and hopefully, soon, it will happen. But not the ‘German way’; it will either happen the ‘Korean way’, or not at all.

(=On a non-literal interpretation of Genesis=)

Oh good, more resources in support of not believing the historical narrative of the Bible, as if it is just yet another book from men (not God? We’ll just ignore 2 Timothy 3:16… and the references Jesus made to both creation and Noah’s flood). Ironic this article is in “Bible History Daily” – hey, it’s not ‘history’ if you don’t believe it. Have you considered the possibility that the Bible is actually true and similar creation/flood stories are found with the Babylonians and other cultures of the time because it is true, though they have twisted the truth to suit their own desires and rejection of the only true God? Broad is the road that leads to destruction, so thanks for helping to pave the way to not believing in the authenticity, the historicity, and authority of God’s word, I think?

(=Regarding Christians who believe in Evolution=)

Sharon Price: There are plenty of scientists who believe in a young earth. Unfortunately, our secular society discredits and ostracises them. It is important for a Christian to know if the Bible is the Truth... if it is not 100% true, where does truth begin? Also, as Jesus spoke of Genesis as truth, for the Christian not to believe in literal Genesis, means they can’t trust Jesus. Either He is God personified, or he’s a charlatan. Yes, there are prophetic writings, but they are very clearly prophetic, and that is the only place a day for a thousand years is used. So decide for yourselves, whom you will believe, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Chelleberry: You are completely correct Sharon. To discredit any part of the scriptures is to discredit God. I am so shocked to see so called Christians happy to dismiss scriptures. They don't realise how detrimental it is.

Raptor: You’re quite right Sharon, what is at stake is the entire veracity of scripture from page one onwards, yet some on here who claim to be Christians and therefore should have a great interest in its truthfulness, not only feel that this is a trifling matter which we shouldn’t be discussing, but vigorously defend what is basically a pagan atheistic philosophy dressed up in scientific garb, which the Bible does not in any way support, and furthermore neither does true science.

Sharon Price: Also look up on YouTube, “Dam Bursting” to see the evolutionary theories on the Grand Canyon taking millions of years to form, being destroyed. “New Island Birth” to demonstrate how the land forms don’t take millions of years to form. Mt St Helens eruption to discredit the radio carbon dating. They’ve also tested a newly dead seal, and various body parts registered various ridiculous ages. There are literally thousands of real life examples, secular scientists don’t bother to make public, as the only alternative is the absolute truth of the bible. Also, a great reference for any questions is CREATION.COM.

Brian M: Michael Roberts thinks Genesis 1 is poetry. The Bible is its own best interpreter. The Ten Commandments is certainly not poetry. The fourth commandment explained in Exodus 20:8-11 only makes sense if the days of the week including the Sabbath and the days of Genesis1 mean the same thing. So Genesis 1 is also not poetry.

I would say I readily believe all of the claims in the Bible because I think hundreds of them have been documented, have been verified. Can you show me something that has been proven wrong from the Bible? Has an archaeologist proven anything wrong? They've discovered, like, the Hittite civilization. The Bible talked about the Hittites. Nobody heard of the Hittites for hundreds of years and all of a sudden, bing, they find evidence of the Hittites. Whoa!

I think the "improbable claims", all of the claims that I'm aware of in the Bible that can be verified have been verified. Some are yet still future. You'll see. Watch your knees. Next time you wash your knees, think "These things are gonna bow before Jesus Christ." Yes, they are.

Questionable sources; insufficient evidence? I think there's overwhelming evidence that the Bible is true. Now if you choose not to believe it (which is obviously what you've done), OK. I choose to believe it. But it's not questionable sources on insufficient evidence. You're the fool here.
