Can't say so much for all the sheep.....and one emotionless sociopath.




Here you go Greeny2,

A public education at work. Peak performance..in summary.

This....
I don't let politics, education, or a an ancient book written by primitive savages dictate to me what to believe or how to think.
contrasts sharply with the secular history of men written back to ancient times as well as in "Enlightened" times in the last 100 to 150 years and the knowledge of Democide.

There are those of us who have not taken such a big bite out of this intellectual fruit and will not do so. For we know that there is nothing new under the sun.



By R. J. Rummel..on Democide....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democide

His research shows that the death toll from democide is far greater than the death toll from war. After studying over 8,000 reports of government-caused deaths, Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the inflictions of people working for governments than have died in battle


Primitive savages????

However..the difference is in this...

I don't get emotional very often. If I never got emotional then I wouldn't be human.


The difference is in glorifying our human traits. I choose not to do so.

I am not here to glorify my humanity. I am here to Glorify Him.

Between these two positions is a great gulf as can be seen in the posts here on Black Vault and I make note of it..in many ways. The one which grates on the souls of Humanists..glorifying human traits..is a public education. Their skin is that thin they think I post this or the Book is to tell them how to think. I post this to those who can see, hear, and understand.

Thanks,
Orangetom

Why are you such an arrogant, self-obsessed ass then? :problem:

Look at yourself.

You even managed a petty flame-war with Rath in a simple thread about the Olympics. You only know how to flame.

I, at least, am not pretending to be "Mr. Humble-Servant-Of-God" as orangetom is.

And just like here, you don't see that it was Rath who started the bullshit against the UK.

In the last days, the christians will mislead many a seeker toward the gates of hell so that they may feed their vanity. The doomed seeker will fall with the christian into the pit, and much scary apocalyptic imagery will ensue. Whoah to the sons of zion, for the cries of raptors will intertwine with the wailing of babes, and behold, I saw orangetom all decked out in black armor, with fiery eyes and a wicked sword, and he pressed to the hindmost of the damned, urging each last precious spark into that blackest gulf, and through his ferocious ministrations not a wretch tarried.
