"Matthew needed some fancy footwork to get the toddler Jesus to Nazareth. There's no indication that Joseph was from Nazareth prior to the birth of Jesus. The astrologers follow His star, which leads them to Jerusalem, where they…"
"What was the conquest of Canaan but the killing of infidels? What were the Crusades but the killing of infidels? What was the Armenian genocide but the killing of infidels? What was the Holocaust but the killing of infidels?…"
"Libertarianism is a failed ideology, just like all the other isms. None will solve every problem or protect everyone's rights. Keep in mind that the Preamble to the Constitution states more than one reason for "more…"
"I have on occasion resorted to telling such evangelists that I am a Catholic. It's funny when they fall all over themselves trying to convince me that they love Catholics.
How long have you been with this boyfriend? Should you…"
"Most Christians don't have a clue as to what the Bible actually says. Fundamentalists will probably tell you that the OT doesn't apply because they live under the New Covenant, the grace of Christ, so they are no longer governed by…"
"Please everybody, don't stay home. The GOP wins when voter turnout is low, which is why so many states have opted for voter ID laws.
I'm for Bernie, too, but we have a two party system. A vote for Hillary is a vote against…"
"Brace yourselves, everyone. We are experiencing a renaissance of Christian themed movies not seen in the US since the 1950s, when Stalin, Kruschev, and Mao were casting their long shadows across the Homeland. Ben-Hur, The Robe, Quo Vadis…"
"A good book that addresses the issue of Christian martyrdom is The Myth of Persecution, by Notre Dame professor Candida Moss. Moss argues that many of the martyrs' stories were heavily redacted and that many more didn't…"
"Kruse's book is a real eye-opener. What I found most interesting was the section on the role Hollywood played, with Cecil B. Demille and the Order of Eagles spreading Ten Commandments monuments around the country to promote Demille's…"
"Hey, Russell, I think we all get it, and we all understand the importance of skepticism. Cameron Todd Willingham was executed in Texas because of junk science, and there was a spate of prosecutions of satanists in the 1980s fueled by junk…"
"Just another stupid meme. Jeb Bush thinks you can tell who the real Christians are so you can keep out the Muslims (and the Jews and the Hindus and the Buddhists, etc.). He probably thinks you can tell good guys from bad guys, even…"
"I don't have any inside knowledge of scientific journals, but when I worked on literary journals there were about thirty people involved in evaluating submissions, including grad students, in-house experts, and outside experts. All…"
The fact that you have to wait once it fails definitely points to an overheating problem. If I were you I would (carefully) try to work out which parts are very hot immediately after it fails. My guess would be that you will find it to be the processor but it could also be ram chips or something else. Then you will have to find out if it is cooled properly - it may be as simple as reseating the processor.
Yes, it does, but not as many as I encountered in Natchitoches. My family attended the First Assembly of God there, pastored by David Allen. Things were bad enough there that at one point, back in the late 80s, the big joke around town was 'don't drink the koolaid'.
Actually, I should say that WV likely has as many fundies as LA, however, the fundies seem much more crispy fried in LA.
Natchitoches is a lovely town, but also very colorful. My twin sister lives in Pineville, but she remains in close contact with some of her Natchitoches friends. She doesn't, however, remain in close contact with me. I'm the family pariah.
Welcome to this friendly site with freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and cunning religions continue to deceive and control vulnerable people including defenceless children. How tragic and inexcusable it is too that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
