  1. Muslim's have murdered between 250-270 million people since it began far out-doing Christianity. These days Islam is bent on world domination through violence whereas Christianity has snapped out of it.
  2. No, it's just that "Facts don’t stop being facts because some bonehead disagrees with them or doesn’t believe them."
  3. Muslim's killed more civilians in two hours on September 11th (2977) than in the 26 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland (2236).
  4. There may not be any documented proof of that but from an experience standpoint I'm going to agree.
  5. There's a balance of gravity on earth. There's more than just one 'pull' that keeps things in precise working order. The sun and moon affects several things to make our existence on earth a wonderful place, and so that we don't spontaneously explode. You just have a stick up your butt causing you to not see it. My burrito proves that it took more than the mind of bot fly to create trillions of galaxies, or my burrito. The birds and the bees? If a bird shits on your head that proves three things. 1. Gravity. 2. The big guy created birds that defy gravity. 3. Your head is full of shit. Scientist are USUALLY wrong. There's no galaxy heading on a collision course with the milky way. When the big guy is in reconstruction mode he uses whatever means available to him, like asteroids, and numbskulls like you, to destroy a lesser thing in order to create a better more refined thing. The big guy used asteroids, volcano's, and earthquakes to dismantle and consume the lesser thing, to make more beautiful impressive things like fools like you and I who can make burritos.

  6. What goes up doesn't always come down, it depends how far up it goes. My burrito proves intelligent design, gravity proves intelligent design. The big guy developed the formula, we discovered it.
  7. That's the typical answer people get who disagree. Ever think of the possibility that disagreement's are the result of understanding?
  8. I don't believe in evolution. It has more holes that car with hit with 100 rounds of 00 buck. Good things don't emerge from accidents.
  9. I watched the first minute and 30 seconds and hit the stop button. There were no human beings on earth in 40,000 BC! I may watch the rest of it sometime but as of now, his first couple minutes tells me this guy is way off the mark.
  10. Actually it's quite the opposite. I don't think there's any concrete evidence who or where pre-trib started. The teaching is incredibly complicated and endlessly fabricated. Back in the 60's and 70's it was being taught like crazy. As people began investigating its claims, several contradictions were exposed. Since then, with every new fabrication that surfaced to cover up those contradictions, more and more fabricated nonsense was required to cover them up. It's the most widely held, fabricated, deceitful teaching Christians believe today.
  11. Mathew 24:34 doesn't imply 'much shorter.' There's no doubt the generation Jesus was referring to was the generation of people who saw the events PASS that he previously mentioned between V. 3-33. Predicting the end of the world has been an obsession in almost all of Christianity's sects. The JW'S predicted it several times, 1874, 1914, 1918, and 1925. Then what I think has really thrown people into an end of the world tantrum is those who try to figure out Daniel's 70th week. So many Christians are preoccupied with it. The worse of all are those who are obsessed with pre-trib. There's a bunch of those fools on Youtube, "rapture and moment," - "rapture any second," - "Rapture imminent," - "Blood moon next week, rapture imminent." One pre-trib fool/pastor puts out as many as 3 videos a day and gets about 4,000 views within a day. This is the way I look at it..... What will be the sign of "end of the world?" That was the question posed to Jesus in Mathew 24:3, and what prompted that question was Jesus' comment, "See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." We have to look at what words they used to figure out what they're asking. Mathew 24 has 3 different words for 'end' and three different words for 'world' in it, and the word 'world' is a really bad translation of 'aion' which is a 'time period'. 'End' in verse three is better understood as a completion or consummation, i.e. the completion of a/this time period. The Preterist view is ridiculous. They know the 'age' began in 33AD but say it ended in 70AD. The futurist view is more accurate as long as pre-trib is taken out of it. So Jesus responded by saying, "Take heed that no man deceive you." Then went on to give over a dozen signs that preceede the completion of the time period. That 'time period' is the time period the gospel would be preached and then done with. V. 14. So what's the end of that time period? It's believed the earth will outlive it's usefullness in 7,000 years. The time period after this one ends last 1,000 years, called the millennium. We are approaching the end of 6,000 years since Adam which means this age is soon to end. According to that thinking, the end will come no sooner than 2030, and no later than 2043. My GUESS is 2033. Did Jesus give us any definite sign to look for that triggers the end? Maybe. He said, "See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." There's still one stone standing upon one another. When the Western Wall falls, that's when the defecation hits the rotating oscillator.
  12. The word 'coming' in Mathew 16:28 is a snafu of a translation. 'Coming' is the word "erchomai" and is better translated 'GO." erchomai is also translated GO in several places. ...till they see the Son of man 'GO' in his kingdom. That's referring to the ascension where Jesus returns into the kingdom of heaven. When he returns Jesus can't COME into his kingdom because he's returning to establish it. He's not returning into a kingdom already established.
  13. I'd have to look but that's likely an ISIS prophecy they promote on their web site and manazine, The Dabique. ISIS has some strange beliefs about the end. Even believing Jesus will help them destroy the dajjal. As far as the 72 virgins, that's in one of the hadiths, but the degredation of women are a constant in the koran. https://clarionproject.org/islamic-state-isis-isil-propaganda-magazine-dabiq-50/
  14. Mathew 24 is not only about the temples destruction, but more about the conditions and events that take place before, "the end of the world" as that was part of the question the disciples asked. 1. When will these things be. (not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.) 2. What will be the sign of thy coming. 3. What will be the sign of the end of the world. (consummation of the age) What most people don't know is that there are three different words for WORLD and three different words for END in Mathew 24. The temple was destroyed in 70AD, but you would have a difficult time convincing people how all of the events described in the chapter actually took place in 70AD. The chapter is full of "the signs of his coming and end of the world.." One guy tried telling me that the earthquakes mentioned in verse 7 are the "earth shaking events of Jerusalems destruction. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Mathew was written in 67AD. Some books after that. How can the gospel be preached throughout the world in 3 years?
