    How do you unwind?

    I was here several times and even posted, and I "still" make that mistaken when I get an alert for it.

    My off topic thread

    Speaking of eating, I just woke and I've ordered a pizza to come today for 12pm. It's a free large pizza, 2000 are being given away today due to England playing the world cup. I don't watch sports, but the free food suits me just fine. 😄
  3. Hm? No several videos are blocked for me in this thead due to being in the US, not just guitar ones.
  4. @Pjdriver Yeah I imagine it will be hard to keep up after a while! (I can't actually listen to all of the songs due to the country block on some of them)
  5. Just came across this 2014 release from Chic. Had no idea! It's good stuff. It's a song celebrating her past hits and the old 70's-80s disco life. Sounds as classic as her other songs. A few samples of other old artists in there too.

    Witness memes

    Generally in internet culture and memes, people spell things how they want people to "hear" them, so you'll often see made up words for effect.

    Think it's meant to be way of pronouncing "yep" or "yes".
  8. That example is worth the million $. You see, it's an artistic representation of modern art... it's not art, it's nothing! Spectacular! The person who hung this deserved the riches he got! (In reality I probably put more thought into my "interpretation" than the artist put in... that.)
  9. I agree. We don't see great acomplishments as much these days, or schools of thoughts. I'd say our understanding of tech and science increases over time, but we are losing wisdom, depth of character. Look at the great minds and people of fame of the classical periods compared to now. Music and art is a huge reveal in this. It's getting less creative in mainstream media but the same old, movies are just reboots now (and many poorly made), music is... a lot of the time "meh". Kids are eating detergent tabs for fun. News reports had recently said humour is becoming darker and also more meaingless. Modern art.. well... there are literally people trying to find meaning in a chair knocked on it's side and a trash bin in the middle of a room. Modern movements are influencing the young with their trashy ideals and ridiculous philosophies. (I mean.. Bill Bye was standing up for gender fluidity in humans by comparing us to clownfish being able to change sex...). You can now be one of...40-something genders... people are debating if you can legally be identifed as an animal if you feel it. Lttle children are being told in some schools to "pick a gender", which is causing mental health issues and stress on young students, young as 5 years old. I mean the world has gone off the rails. Years ago, people who put out such things would not of had a voice. Now the patients are running the asylum. Internet can play a part, both in education "and" dumbing down. It's how you use it. On Facebook I see (and we can all do this "time to time" of course) people just believing everything they see and hear. People are entertained by... the stupidiest t.v shows now, and I don't mean some form of quirky comedy or absurd humour, but I mean... reality t.v... and these people are praised as heroes, celebs, people to "look up to". I've said before, ancestors were smarter than us, but just did not have accumulation of exeperiance or knowledge from prior ancestors of their own, giving the "illusion" they were dumber. We are progressing... but also getting more stupid. It's a crazy paradox.
  10. Solid points in there. (There are also counter arguments to the review in there also, but they are beyond me to examine as I'm no geneticist or mathematician.) What I wish to ask though is if there is "anything" in his research that can be salvaged? He clearly has tried to perform calculations in accordance to YEC math, but I wonder if there is anything in his finds that can be reconciled with accurate science and biblical teachings.
  11. Seeing how you seem to support evolution to the degree you do... are you under the impression that Genesis was not literal and that man came from ape ancestors by means of Jehovah? Genuine question, not as disrespect, just curious, as that's the vibe I get. If not, why so?
  12. Even if he is a YEC.. surely his research on negative mutations is still valid, given that it lines up with other studies, such as the fly mutations? I've not seen people try to discredit him or prove his research wrong in any scientific community, he himself in that video said no scientist can deny the observations of negative mutations. What mistakes did he make?
  13. The video I was thinking about The exact same discovery is repeated with those fruit fly tests which were spoken about in our mags. “Almost all the mutants…died or were weaker than wild varieties. Mutations cannot transform an original species of plant or animal into an entirely new one. This conclusion agrees with all the experiences and results of mutation research of the 20th century taken together as well as with the laws of probability. Properly defined species have real boundaries that cannot be abolished or transgressed by accidental mutations.” – Wolf-Ekkehard Lonnig Basically... micro-evoution, yes. Macro. No. Evolution has not caused apes.. or ape related creatures to evolve into humans according to the scriptures. Science has not shown one species becoming another. Reptile to mammal, etc. If something splits.. it's still "within it's kind". Hence you can say wolves from the ark evolved into the dog breeds we see now. But you can't say a fish became a lizard with became a bird. It's all framework. Satan is a genius. He flooded the minds of man with the wrong lens for years, making people teach that micro can account for macro, and then people trying to squeeze the oh so lacking fossil evidence and even DNA evidence into this theory. But if you really look into it (I did), several flaws, just on a scientific scale, then they can't explain why scripture is prophetically true. Quoted from my blog from my own research and reasoning. Speaking of videos, and what I quoted from my blog. This man took the words out my own mouth about imposing the theory of macro evolution with our own minds. But to take one of the main quotes of my blog...
