Hey all, So, I am in the process of exiting the military (not by choice, and not for discipline either). So naturally I've been putting my resume out there online (since the area I'm moving to is not…Continue
"Yeah... how much sense does it make to say "you're not as great as "God himself" and yet, if you're good at your religion, you'll get your own planet with which you will be worshiped as a deity yourself...
"Easter is the Spring Equinox, or something.... And we use the "Easter Bunny" because rabbits, combined with eggs are the pagan symbols of fertility, lol.
Just about the only "original" holidays we have in the US are…"
"Here's the "biggest" piece of evidence that I personally use. In the Bible, there is a verse that basically states "if you add to, or take away from this book, your name will be stricken from the 'Lamb's Book of…"
"I'd say, as another poster here commented, you need to be familiar with the KEY ideas of a religion/thought process in order to counter it.
I mean, is it important to know the whole story of Saint Gregory "the Dragon Slayer"?? in…"
"Those posers who only do half, or third squats give a ton of people a bad name, lol.
For myself, I currently rep 225 comfortably 6-12 times (depends on the working load of the workout), but Leg press closer to 600... Right now, the biggest…"
"The advice that was given to me by my great uncle ( who apparently spent 20 years in the AF, then another 20 in the army)
-don't speak unless spoken to directly (as in, by name or whatever nickname the DIs give you... just hope/pray you…"
"Find various USMC publications on "proper" form for things like push ups, pull ups, situps, etc. and start preparing for that now. You say you are swimming more, which is great, but Im not sure it'll help that much, except from a…"
"I would say a couple of them are in Twelve O'Clock High.
First, because it's a wonderful job of telling someone he's well past his bus stop, is when Savage demotes Gately for going AWOL.
Second is Savage's "This Group"…"
"Personally, it'd probably have been lost/destroyed a LOOONG time ago. As Jesus spent time with the more common man, even if people recognized the divine, I doubt they could afford to sacrifice any of their dinnerware. IF it does still…"
"I've tried a board or two...can't relate as all the men are far, far younger than I am. Makes it worse that I have no past background in it either, so I have not "been" there and can help anyone at that age.
At age fifty I'm…"
"Agreed.... When I was looking for a gym to join when I moved to the area I'm in now, I searched powerlifting gym, and a place called "Tacoma Power" pulled up. Turns out these assholes (and I've no problem calling them that) are…"
"That and the fact that Thursday is from Nordic mythology (Thor's day) as is Friday (Freya's day). Sunday could be Norse as well because Sun was a god, who guided the sun (imagine that). Moon, who was the guide for the moon was…"
"Anybody else out there finding themselves missing that flaming finger guy from a few years back? The one who worshiped Crowley and thought Alec Baldwin's speech in Glengarry Glenross was the utter epitome manliness?"
"I visited an open I-group for six weeks, and it was a good experience, and there was true processing going on. I hope to return to the same group soon, since my initiation is less than three weeks away. Sorry to hear that it was not functioning…"
If she gets weird about you asking her out on an 'actual' date then drop the subject but keep her as a friend. More relationships have started through friends of friends than any other method (yes, even online matching…"
