  1. They think your brain is the central part of a person; but if you meditate on how the scriptures refer to other organs as being part of who we are: heart;kidneys;liver;intestines.... etc etc... that person is gonna me an emotional mess... His head will think one way and his heart and guts will be a different person.
  2. they are nuts.... the person will probly be nutz after..... if he survives... they want to do it before the end of the year.... last I read they said it would take 150 doctors....
  3. You can reverse it somewhat; but you have to manage it from coming back. I was pre diabetic when i was 37 and weighed 247 pounds. I switched my diet and slowly went vegan for 7 years. lost 80 pounds and kept it off. I weigh how much i wieghed in highschool. even less. I've not been to a doctor in 10 years.... so officially i don't know what my A1C would test at.... but it seems I'm still doing pretty good keeping diabetes not developing. I probly hurt myself more by being less active. cliff notes how i changed? 1) no dairy ( if you cheat..... atleast go thru fasting time periods to get it out of your system for several weeks. 2) no processed foods 3) quit eating deserts 4) started eating big giants vats of water bound soups with lots of vegetables. 5) eat mushrooms to help with meat cravings 6) read ingredients to every single item you pic up at the store; get to know what not to buy. 7) no GMO foods 8) no processed Isolate proteins(usually soy) 9) no hidden MSG foods--- research it. 10) no processed fructose/ corn syrups/ "sugar"... needs to be cane(evaporated cane preferred). 11) meat to 5% of diet.... try to get meat thats humanly treated and fed real food. 12) eat nothing from the pacific ocean.... if you like sea food. 13) no soda's--- unless its organic and not a highly processed sugar... the Kombucha's are good. recently I've gotten a little more strict with my oil use and rarely cook with it now. I only use coconut oil here and there. I try to drink lots of filtered clean water with no flourides and chlorines. I buy cheap pinapple in cans Dole circle rounds.... drain the juice. Its not fresh but it still has value. Infact i was eating like 3 to 5 cans a day for a couple weeks and lost several more pounds and allowed me to fit into pants i couldn't previosly just this year. lol so if you want to lose weight.... pinapple water diet. I was vegan for 7 years. but now i cheat with diary(cheese/yogurt).... but organic brands... there's some from denmark and over seas that seem good; Sierra Nevada from California is nice too. But its good to fast from it for week or more to not have it 24/7 in your system. I also cheat with eggs to make pancakes with. I make buckwheat flour pancakes that are good. anywayz.... changing diet is pretty tough.... diary was the easiest to get rid of cravings for.... man i loved my tortia's and cheese... sugar was the next one.... I won't lie..... meat was the hardest to get rid of.... took actually like 5 years.... but now i can let others pressure me to eat it now and again but i don't crave it. It takes time to change you system to not crave acid based foods.... not sure why.. but fresh fruits and vegies as much as possible... don't need to be 100% vegan... just eat more of them. forgot to mention.... whole grain breads.... sprouted grain breads are the best.... and probiotic foods........ safeway has this real good salt brine sauerkraut. Kimchi/ home made pickles....
  4. low fat diet. (nothing refined(oils)--- and try to eat less animal products(especially dairy for a spell- if you use diary really try to use the "organic" brands.) high enzyme diet-- fresh fruit and vegetables It may not "cure" but it certainly reduces the need for "medications". I took care of my 90 year old grandmother for three years taking he blood 2 to 4 times a day. she had to take pills and shots. Taking her down to a vegetarian diet(which is not vegan); and managing her "meds" helped her A1C down from 11.9 to 6.9. She had many TIA's when she lived alone do to bad management; the three years i was with her she had no TIA's. So.... diet truly helps... Owe... she was prescribed 40 units of lantus and i got her down to 2to 4 units as spot treatment sugar high readings after meals. If you have a hard time with diet changes.... fasting 1 to 2 days a week can help.... but it gets tricky with doing meds... obviously you would need to time your meds..... or only eat high water content fruit for a day or 2..
  5. click bait---- i thought there was some amazing new article...
  6. Cooking of food

    logicly..... why dig in the ground for roots when you can just eat fruit off a tree thats sweet and tastes good. lol
  7. Cooking of food

    they probly didn't eat stuff from the ground.... If they were doing just fine with fruit and stuff with trees...... I would imagine they didn't innovate with thier diet till after they left the garden and had a hard time eating.... anywayz.... speculation i guess.
  8. digital music killed the higher qualities of sound.... I remember music being so much more wonderful as a kid... now i can survive without a radio for years. lol
  9. she says cpu; but i'm sure she means PC.
  10. 1) whats your operating system? windows 7 minimum 6 GB ram.... 8 recomended windows 10: 8 GB ram minimum ; 16 becoming the norm hopefully your not on vista...but vista windows XP you could get by with 4 GB ram....but thats ancient history. lol So.... these are things you could do to revamp an older system thats getting slow. 1) nuke..... reinstall windows from scratch.... best option if you know how to handle wanted data and have all your license information(Belarc -scan and save to a thumb drive)... and know how to navigate all the driver update issues.... 2) run a bunch of cleaning items. here's my list of what i do: 1) remove start up programs start/run/ type msconfig and press ok or enter goto the start up tabs and uncheck every program that's unessential and you can manually run. leave intel items/ drivers/antivirus-- you can google some items to see if you can turn them to manual. some updating items can be turned off like adobe/ chrome/ etcetc. they will always be back making you update... if you want to control your computer better install Winpatrol... it pops up windows everytime something wants to change something. reboot 2) run a system cleaner that cleans up temp folders and browser clutter.: wise365/ Ccleaner be aware that some auto fills could be erased... inspect the checkmarks on whats being cleaned. if you don't have the habit of bookmarks.. your history usually is cleaned and you will lose your history. passwords usually are not touched...but make sure. 3) antivitrus--- run a full scan. 4) malwarebytes-- full scan--- also a custom scan after and check rootkit scan 5) NPE norton power eraser --free download. 6) adware cleaner from Bleepingcomputers.com 7) run a system cleaner again and do a registry scan. reboot now defrag your mechanical hard drive. many free ones... I use Auslogics. if you want to look deeper... Revo uninstaller can uninstall programs for you--- it scans for leftover items after the uninstall... remeber to check them and delete them Ccleaner has a menu you can look thru browser items to clean or turn off unwanted items. updaters/ toolbars it may be you need to update drivers: Intel has a driver utility I've used IObit AdvancedSystemCare and run thru all its tools...but i always uninstall it with Revo after.... its suspect for leaving all kinds of odd things on your system. Then goto your manufacture website for newer drivers. I don't recommend the newest video drivers unless you have some program that needs it. uninstall programs you don't need or use anymore. Check your hardware: hard drives can start going bad and slowing you down. If you get the swirly cursor all the time and things start stalling...could be. Hard Disk Sentinel has a free trial that's good(run the short self test) Crystal Disk Info also can tell you if SMART is recording errors. Memory... your system should have an onboard memory test... see if your manufacture website has info on that. Blow our your system...... heat makes everything work harder and burn out faster. If your braver pull all your connection in and out to reseat the metal connections. memory/sata cables/graphics cards if you have one. guess thats it....
  11. The only research i trust is bible meditation. 8D I would like to trust worldly "research".... but there is so much special interest "research" that i just can't trust any of it. Even the internet when you try to do multi sampling "research" it really just looks like copy and pasted articles that go viral from one source; and who is that one source?... But i do understand that with Jehovah being a lover of variety that even our bodies can be differen't so that diet recommendations will be different. But this is what i clean from marketed diets from the worldly advertising. 1) more protein.... protein protein protein.... problem? seems to activate cancer for some. "The China Study" recommends trying to keep animal protein to 5%. and if your already cancer sensitive plant protein to 10%. So that means a high fruit diet; as plants actually can be high in protein.(didn't Adam and Eve eat a high fruit diet?) fruit actually has .5 to 6% protein depending on the fruit. Some say that we really don't need that much protein...as proof they say there is no such thing as a protein disease other then famine and your starving.... anywayz... how to herbivore animals get so big eating leafs and grass... this is somewhat supported by the fact that the "rich" in times past use to be the ones that got cancer because they had the money to eat meat all the time. I know some don't want to admit the vegetable connection with Daniel.... but you can't remove the fact that Daniel wanted more vegetables rather then the more "delicacies" from the Babylon diet. 2) fats/oils/nuts.... for some who are diabetic and lean that way this really needs to be controlled... fats and oils attached to how they are in creation(nature). Refined oils = no no.... over time you can clean out your cells of to much fat and reverse or drastically improve diabetes 2. Even some diabetic 1 patients improve to some degree. but if you still want to include oils in the diet.... get the cold pressed non refined. But if your diebetic you need some fasting periods away from oils. 3) no sugar and using chemical "sweeteners". If sugar is bad for you then why did Jehovah create fruit?...yaaa...I'm not even gonna keep going..lol The problem is GMO sugar/ Highly prcessed sugar./ like refined oils.... it may not be good for us to concentrate it away from creation(nature). But evaporated cane seems to be ok to me; honey if you don't have a honey metabolic issue... my sister can't eat honey...currently... anywayz... this is all temporary knowledge to try and get us thru this system. All food in the new system will honor Jehovah in being able to support good health. Personally i think its one of the greater crimes of this world right now that food we pray over for blessings the Devil has his "ministers" working at making it curse our health. I'm sure some aren't talking with Satan and doing his bidding; but the complete negligence of producing food that hurts others and only worrying about the all mighty dollar; in my book is the same thing. sorry.. rambling on... some of this is redundant.... but i took the time to type it..lol
  12. you know that in america they raised the legal pesticide limits in food 5 fold from the original level? Personally i think its GMO and pesticides...doesn't make sense that Jehovah created food that makes us sick. but i don't have the condition so... Its strange to me that these GMO test fields are in every 50 states....they cross contaminate.
  13. The Black Plague

    even in the states the national parks have signs about the rodents and chipmunks to stay away from them..... been awhile but i thought it was about the plague as a possibility.... from some research i did in highschool. how you get infected effects your chances of survival. skin contact/ mucus membrane/ and inhalation... i think back in history if you inhaled it it was a 90% death rate.
  14. 25 year marriage invalid

    i don't know of many other translations that use Jehovah so often. it doesn't look like king James can't be new world... no marginal reverence.
