Sounds just like Revelations

Eze 38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
This is the way that it was done in the old days of God. What make anyone think that it is any different today?

Deu 2:34 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain:

Ann Coulter

Makes this interesting and funny observation about the coward Kerry at Town

Of course we can't be sure if their presidential candidate wants Saddam back, inasmuch as John Kerry will be in an undisclosed location until Election Day. As Mickey Kaus has pointed out, every time Kerry starts campaigning, his poll numbers plummet. According to a recent New York Times poll, after $60 million in warm and fuzzy TV ads about Kerry, 40 percent of Americans have no opinion of him.

I give this one the hah haha haha or more mild heh heh heh. Na HAHAHAHAHAHA!

At installs a couple of gems for the Left Dingers to mull over.

John O'Neill, who took command of John Kerry's swift boat in Vietnam following Kerry's departure for home after just four months in country:
"[Shortly after his return stateside in 1971], Kerry crossed an important line, fully and finally breaking loyalty with those of us who were still under the fire of combat in Vietnam - first by falsely accusing us of war crimes and then by allowing himself to become a surrogate spokesperson for our enemies. More than 250 sailors from Coastal Squadron One, many of whom served alongside John Kerry, have joined together in signing a protest of our own. We have come together in a solemn statement that we who served with John Kerry do not consider him to be fit to be our Commander-in-Chief."

If Kerry felt he was unfit to lead men into combat, what makes him think he can be commander and chief in charge of a multimillion man army. He is an idiot who would get people killed for no gain. (my comment)


Historian Paul Johnson, in Forbes:
"Saudi Arabia is another country where intolerance has held back economic advance. No nation has received more cash from its natural resources than has this Sunni Muslim state, with its ferocious tradition of Wahhabi fundamentalism. What's happened to the wealth? Gone with the wind of bigotry. Some of the other oil-rich Gulf states have done a little better, but in none of them do enterprise and free-market capitalism flourish. . . . On the evidence of the second half of the 20th century, it would appear that Islamic state control is a formula for continuing poverty, and Islamic fundamentalism a formula for extreme poverty."

The results speak for themselves. (Me again)

What is a day?

There is a verse or two more in the old testament that tells us that to God time has No meaning to him. Here is something to think about along with my commnts on the subject. Especially since I recently saw an report by some in the Christian community that continue to say the earth is not as old as scientists say it is. They are wrong, and those scientists who say that the Bible is inaccurate concerning the age of the earth are wrong as well.
No where in the Bible does it say how old the earth is.

Job 10:5 Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man's days,

Pe 3:8 ;But, beloved, be not ignorant, of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Gen 2:2 ;And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all, his work which he had made.

Strongs dictionary for Peter 3;verse8
A primary preposition; properly near, that is, (with genitive case) from beside (literally or figuratively), (with dative case) at (or in) the vicinity of (objectively or subjectively), (with accusative case) to the proximity with (local [especially beyond or opposed to] or causal [on account of]). In compounds it retains the same variety of application: - above, against, among, at, before, by, contrary to, X friend, from, + give [such things as they], + that [she] had, X his, in, more than, nigh unto, (out) of, past, save, side . . . by, in the sight of, than, [there-] fore, with. In compounds it retains the same variety of application.

Probably adverb of compound from G3739; which how, that is, in that manner (very variously used as shown): - about, after (that), (according) as (it had been, it were), as soon (as), even as (like), for, how (greatly), like (as, unto), since, so (that), that, to wit, unto, when ([-soever]), while, X

Plural of uncertain affinity; a thousand: - thousand.

HUH? Plural of uncertain affinity. That means that we do not know what time relationship to assign to what God thinks of as time.

We have men who claim to be of God so focused on this one aspect to prove that the earth is only 6000 years old when in fact the bible says nothing concerning the age of the earth. Also it would make God a liar if todays scientist find that the earth is not. Secondly Christians who are scientists have not challenged carbon 14 dating as illigitimate. The fact is why would God say one thing and do the other? He would not. If a year is 1000 years or 1 billion to God what is that to us. Time has meaning to the flesh not to God.

Also Adam and Eve who were immortal until they partook of the knowledge of good and evil(in which God warned them they would die if they did), could have lived for 4.5 billion years because they knew no boundaries to time as well. They dwelled in innocence with God in the Garden and it was after God chased them out of their sanctuary that they died.
