Trump morphs White House into a fortress as he threatens to ignore election results
As Donald Trump conditions his cultists to reject any election result that doesn't include him winning, he has also continued to erect a multi-layered barricade around the White House. Or as a Washingtonian headline observed earlier this month, "The...
How Donald Trump cancelled the Republican party
by Sidney Blumenthal
T he Republican convention that nominates Donald Trump for a second term will be the greatest event in the political history of cancel culture. What Trump is cancelling is nothing less than the Republican party as it has existed before him. He ran in 2016 in the primaries on cancelling the GOP and in 2020 he ratifies his triumph. After the election, political scientists and historians will study his obliteration of the Republican party as his greatest and most enduring political achievement. Rick Perlstein: 'If you're not writing about the berserk, you're not writing about America' The Republican party has been on a long journey away from being the party of Abraham Lincoln, accelerating since Barry Goldwater and rightwing cadres captured it in 1964 in reaction to the civil rights movement. After Richard Nixon embraced the southern strategy and won the nomination in 1968 with the help of Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, the Dixiecrat segregationist presidential candidate in 1948, the party increasingly radicalized in every election cycle and became gradually unmoored. In 1980, Ronald Reagan opened his general election campaign at the Neshoba County Fair, the place where three civil rights workers had been murdered in 1964 . Surrounded by Confederate flags, he hailed 'states' rights'. As brazen an appeal as it was, Reagan felt he had to resort to the old code words. Central to Trump's unique selling proposition is that he dispenses with the dog whistles. His vulgarity gives a vicarious thrill to those who revel in his taunting of perceived enemies or scapegoats. He made them feel dominant at no social price, until his catastrophic mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and economic crisis. Flouting a mask is the magical act of defiance to signal that nothing has really changed and that in any case, Trump bears no responsibility. But there has also been a political cost to Trump's louche comic lounge act that still transfixes a diehard audience lingering like late-night gamblers for the last show. Trump is the only president since the advent of modern polling never to reach 50% approval. Despite decisively losing the popular vote in 2016, he said he 'won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally'. This time, fearing an even more overwhelming popular rejection, he says the outcome will be 'rigged' and he has pre-emptively tried to cancel the US Postal Service, to undermine voting by mail. From Reagan onward, even as the fringe moved to the center and took it over, the party did not anticipate that it was slouching toward Trump. Conservatives have consistently failed to grasp the unintended consequences of conservatism. Even when Reagan fostered the evangelical right, George HW Bush appointed Clarence Thomas to the supreme court, George W Bush invaded Iraq and neglected oversight of financial markets that collapsed, and John McCain named Sarah Palin as his running mate, Republicans believed they were expanding the attraction of the conservative project. When Newt Gingrich, Roger Ailes and Rush Limbaugh methodically degraded language, it seemed a propaganda technique to herd supporters. When the dark money of the Koch family and the wealthy reactionaries of the cloaked Donors Trust bankrolled the lumpen dress-up Tea Party to do their bidding on deregulation of finance and industry, the munificently funded conservative candidates did their bidding as retainers of privilege. In the wasteland, only cockroaches and Mitch McConnell may survive At the presidential level there still remained residual elements contrary to what metastasized into Trumpism. Reagan represented free trade and western firmness against Russia. George HW Bush was a paragon of public service. George W Bush was an advocate for immigrants. John McCain was the embodiment of patriotic sacrifice. After Trump, all that has been cancelled. Since he first rode down the escalator at Trump Tower in 2015, to declare his candidacy against Mexican 'rapists', there has always been a new escalator downward. After overcoming his initial hesitation, the House Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, welcomed the election of a QAnon conspiracy-spouting candidate from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene. Then McCarthy condemned QAnon and stated that Greene wasn't part of a movement she continued to defend. Trump hailed her as a 'future Republican star'. For months, he has been tweeting messages to encourage the racist, antisemitic cult. 'There's a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do it,' Greene proclaimed . 'I've heard these are people that love our country,' Trump said. In the wasteland, only cockroaches and Mitch McConnell may survive. Stuart Stevens, a prominent Republican political consultant, eyes startled wide open, has entitled his exposé of the party It Was All A Lie . He describes the conservative Trump apologists, the adults in the room, as latter-day versions of Franz von Papen, the German chancellor who enabled the rise of Hitler in the complacent belief that he could be controlled and the conservatives would maintain power. It Was All a Lie review: Trump as symptom not cause of Republican decline On 4 July, at the mammoth stage set of Mount Rushmore , Trump mugged for his photo op by posing his face next in line to the carving of Abraham Lincoln. He had earlier told the South Dakota governor, Kristi Noem, ''Did you know it's my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?'' 'And I started laughing,' she recounted. 'And he wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious.' (Trump tweeted that it was 'fake news' that he had ordered an aide to inquire about immortalizing his face on the mountain.) Ostensibly, Trump came to deliver his ideological message. He denounced 'cancel culture', which he said was 'the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values, and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America'. He attributed it to 'a new far-left fascism'. And he spelled out its punitive nature: 'If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished.' Thus, he offered a concise description of his own cancel culture's methods. Trump's cancel culture deals in aggressions, not micro-aggressions. The only safe space is where Trump is worshipped. Before, during and after the death of McCain, Trump unleashed tirades of insult. He finally complained that the McCain family never thanked him for approving the senator's funeral arrangements , even though it was Congress that gave approval. For years, Trump has disparaged the Bush family. At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, when George W Bush called for setting aside partisanship and embracing national unity, Trump tweeted , 'but where was he during Impeachment calling for putting partisanship aside'. Trump's cancel culture deals in aggressions, not micro-aggressions. The only safe space is where Trump is worshipped Trump has invoked Reagan only as a stepping stone of his own monumental pedestal. At a rally in 2019, Trump mused : 'I was watching the other night the great Lou Dobbs [of Fox News], and he said, 'When Trump took over, President Trump,' he used to say, 'Trump is a great president.' Then he said, 'Trump is the greatest president since Ronald Reagan.' Then he said, 'No, no, Trump is an even better president than Ronald Reagan.' And now he's got me down as the greatest president in the history of our country, including George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Thank you. We love you too.' When Trump sought to profit for his 2020 campaign by selling a gold-colored Trump-Reagan commemorative coin set, the Reagan Foundation sent him a curt letter , telling him to cease and desist. Trump has constantly retailed a false story about Reagan supposedly remarking after meeting him, 'For the life of me, and I'll never know how to explain it, when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president.' The chief administrative officer of the Reagan Foundation felt compelled to note that Reagan 'did not ever say that about Donald Trump'. A man dressed as Abraham Lincoln holds up a sign as Donald Trump's motorcade passes in Washington in June. Photograph: Jonathan Ernst/Reuters Trump's petty, vindictive and exploitative abuse of the Bush presidents, McCain and Reagan pales in comparison to his raging obsessions about Lincoln. He has boasted his poll numbers are better than Lincoln's ever were (true), claimed he is more a victim than the assassinated martyr (untrue), and declared he has done more for Black Americans than Lincoln (untrue). Trump aims barb at Reagan Foundation in fundraising coin kerfuffle Trump, the would-be Great Emancipator and upholder of Confederate monuments, has lately ruminated about giving an address at Gettysburg. There are many such monuments there to the thousands of poor white southerners who gave their lives for the Slave Power and to overthrow the democracy of the United States. Perhaps, contemplating his last campaign, Trump could trudge across the rutted field of Pickett's Charge . He might ask what his bikers and self-styled militia would be willing to do for him. What Lincoln consecrated, Trump would desecrate. But he would undoubtedly speak longer. Trump's compulsive need to elevate himself as greater than the greatest president does not stand alone among strange statements about Lincoln from members of his inner circle. Some fancy that they too resemble Lincoln, alongside Trump. Some insist they are bravely fighting the civil war, on behalf of Trump. Some depict Trump as the reincarnation of Lincoln, to justify his dishonesty. Some summon Lincoln to claim God is on their side. The disconnect of these incoherent and eccentric gestures from any reality past or present is a telltale sign of terminal party identity. Each weird distortion marks the progress of Trump's cancel culture, the eclipse of history bred by one-man misrule that is a half-cocked aspiration to an authoritarian system that might be codified by the likes of William Barr. Stephen Bannon, Trump's now-indicted former campaign manager and senior adviser, appeared in a 2019 documentary about his post-White House crusade to organize an international neo-fascist alliance. The film opens with Bannon cradling a volume of Carl Sandburg's biography of Lincoln. Bannon says portentously that it's 1862. Then he reads Lincoln's words: 'They wish to get rid of me and I am sometimes half-disposed to gratify them. We are now on the brink of destruction. It appears to me the Almighty is against us and I can hardly see a ray of hope.' Lincoln's 'fiery trial' to preserve the union is reduced to Bannon's dark apocalyptic mutterings against the forces conspiring against him and Trump: the 'Deep State', rootless cosmopolitans, globalists and liberal elites. We're a long way from, as Lincoln said, 'the last best hope of earth'. Betsy DeVos's definition of freedom as 'what we ought', that is, what she determines, is more Orwellian than Lincolnian Ivanka Trump has turned to Lincoln for the occasional non-sequitur defense of her father. Her vacant voice and immobile expression augment the surprise effect of her inapt citations. After Attorney General Barr issued a deceptive characterization of the Mueller Report to mislead the public about its actual content, Ivanka rushed to support Barr's falsehood. She tweeted a quote: 'Truth is generally the best vindication against slander – Abraham Lincoln.' The difference between Barr and Lincoln was that Barr covered up the truth. During the impeachment inquiry into Trump's withholding of nearly $400m in military aid to Ukraine, to coerce its government to launch an investigation that would smear Joe Biden with fabricated accusations of corruption, Ivanka leaped to protect her father. She claimed the incontrovertible facts were nothing but a partisan attack contrived to malign him, originating from a whistleblower within the intelligence community who was 'not particularly relevant'. 'Basically since the election,' she said , 'this has been the experience that our administration and our family has been having. Rather than wait, under a year, until the people can decide for themselves based on his record and based on his accomplishments, this new effort has commenced.' Once again, she reached for Lincoln as her father's model. 'This has been the experience of most,' she observed with the sagacious tone of a student of history. 'Abraham Lincoln was famously, even within his own cabinet, surrounded by people who were former political adversaries.' Ivanka's smug confusion was complete. She had mistaken the whistleblower whose memo triggered the impeachment process with Lincoln's 'team of rivals'. On 23 January, Betsy DeVos, Trump's secretary of education, a billionaire heiress and funder of rightwing causes, spoke at the Museum of the Bible in Washington to a group from the Colorado Christian University, to claim Lincoln as the imaginary leader for the anti-abortion movement. 'He too contended with the 'pro-choice' arguments of his day,' she said. 'They suggested that a state's 'choice' to be slave or to be free had no moral question in it.' According to DeVos, women asserting their reproductive rights are engaged in a 'vast moral evil', equivalent to slavery. 'Lincoln was right about slavery 'choice' then, and he would be right about the life 'choice' today,' she said . 'Freedom is not about doing what we want. Freedom is about having the right to do what we ought.' DeVos's mangling of Lincoln, who was an early advocate of women's rights and suffrage but never said a word about abortion, is intended to legitimate the anti-abortion agenda of granting personhood rights to fetuses, which she and other zealots equate to enslaved African Americans. Her definition of freedom as 'what we ought', that is, what she determines, is more Orwellian than Lincolnian. Historically, claiming that law should be rooted in theological dogma is in the tradition of the southern theologians Lincoln condemned, who justified slavery by biblical references and divine sanction. Mike Pence, Trump's vice-president, a former rightwing radio host, travelled in January to Ripon, Wisconsin, site of the founding of the Republican party in 1854, garrulously to praise Trump as the true heir to Lincoln in 'the advancement of our highest ideals'. Once again, Pence explained , we are at a 'crossroads of freedom'. Trump, the Lincoln manqué, is all that stands between America and the threat of Joe Biden and 'socialism and decline'. Months before the murder of George Floyd and the wave of Black Lives Matter demonstrations that swept across the country, Pence charged, 'Joe Biden believes America is, in his words, systemically racist. And despite historically low crime rates prior to this pandemic, Joe Biden believes that law enforcement in America has a, quote, 'implicit bias' against minorities.' In conclusion, the evangelical Pence declared, 'The Bible says, 'Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom', and 'with President Donald Trump in the White House for four more years, we'll make America great again, again.' In the long-ago days when there was only one 'again', during the 2016 campaign, Pence defended Trump's shout-out to Vladimir Putin to hack and release Clinton campaign emails: 'Russia if you're listening …' 'You know,' Pence explained , 'Abraham Lincoln said, give the people the facts, and the republic will be saved. I mean, I think that's the point that [Trump is] making. He's not encouraging some foreign power to compromise the security of this country.' Bowdlerizing a dubiously sourced Lincoln quote, Pence portrayed Trump as the simple protector of facts and denied he was 'encouraging' Russian intervention. Pence's statement was a cover-up in real time. We now know from the Senate intelligence committee report that Roger Stone, Trump's longtime political operative and dirty trickster, was directly in touch with Trump on the theft of the Clinton emails by Russian intelligence and their release by WikiLeaks. To quote Marx – Groucho – 'Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?' If Trump has a faithful servant, it is Mike Pence. Mike Pompeo, Trump's secretary of state and yet another evangelical crusader, has raised Lincoln to justify his own brand of dogma. In a speech entitled 'Being a Christian Leader', to the American Association of Christian Counselors at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel at Nashville on 11 October , he explained how God directs him to be humble, forgiving and thrifty. 'I know some people in the media will break out the pitchforks when they hear that I ask God for direction in my work,' he said. 'But you should know, as much as I'd like to claim originality, it is not a new idea. I love this quote from President Lincoln. He said … quote, 'I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.'' 'What politics is': Sidney Blumenthal on Lincoln and his own Washington life Unfortunately, in their Recollected Words of Abraham Lincoln , the historians Don and Virginia Fehrenbacher rate the words Pompeo spoke with a grade D: in other words, bogus. Lincoln is in fact recorded to have referred to 'knees' only three times, all involving jokes. The Fehrenbachers also give a D to another well-used 'Lincoln' quotation: 'You can fool all the people some of the time; you can fool some of the people all the time; but you can't fool all the people all the time.' Stephen Miller, Trump's senior adviser, originator of the Muslim ban and separating migrant children from their families, author of the cancel culture speech at Mount Rushmore, is impatient for the apocalypse. Observing the protests at Portland before the federal courthouse that were met with a show of armed force, Miller went on Tucker Carlson Tonight to explain why this was Fort Sumter. 'The Democratic party for a long time historically has been the party of secession,' he said. 'What you're seeing today is the Democratic party returning to its roots.' In his compact and inverted analogy, the protest against police violence was a battle in a new civil war and the ragtag shifting bands of protesters including the ' Wall of Moms ' were the restoration of the pro-secession Southern Democratic party, which would of course transform Trump into Lincoln. The identity of the enemy may change – Muslims, Mexicans or Moms – but Miller is prepared to draw the sword for whatever clash of civilization may come. He's just not prepared for a virus.

Photograph: Jerry Mennenga/ZUMA Wire/REX/Shutterstock During his 2016 campaign, Trump plagiarized not only Reagan's slogan, 'Make America Great Again', but also Nixon's appeal to 'the silent majority'. He also boasted: 'I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters.' Trump's attorney, asked about 'the Fifth Avenue example' by the judge presiding in the case of the Manhattan district attorney seeking Trump's tax returns, argued that Trump would have legal immunity if he killed somebody. Steve Bannon: rise and fall of Trump aide who preached 'American carnage' Since March, more than 170,000 Americans – the New York Times estimates more than 200,000 – have died of coronavirus. On 20 June, Trump kicked off his campaign with a rally at Tulsa . Campaign workers tore stickers off the seats that encouraged social distancing. In the sparse but closely packed crowd sat Herman Cain, proudly grinning, not wearing a mask. For a brief moment in 2012 the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and fast-talking Tea Party advocate had been the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination. Disillusioned after he quit the race when accused of sexual harassment , he called for a third party. Then came Trump. For 2020, the man who said his Secret Service code name as president would be 'Cornbread' became chairman of Black Voices For Trump. A month later, he was dead of coronavirus . Cain would miss his speaking slot at the Republican convention. He had joined what the ancient Greeks called 'the silent majority'. Yet 20 days after Cain's death, on 19 August , his Twitter account posted Trump's latest ad: 'Boy, it sure looks like Joe Biden is losing his mental faculties.' In death, nobody, not even Mike Pence, could claim greater devotion to the party of Trump. Sidney Blumenthal, former senior adviser to President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, has published three books of a projected five-volume political life of Abraham Lincoln: A Self-Made Man , Wrestling With His Angel and All the Powers of Earth

Do you think life exists and are we the only life in the universe and why ?
2 Answers Relevance Yes. Life exists. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the LIFE. No one goes to the Father (heaven) but by Him. Refer to John 14:6. In fact, I urge you to read the entire New Testament. It is unclear if we are the only life in the universe. God only told us what we need to know in the Bible and, apparently, He didn't think we needed to know that. I think life PROBABLY exists out there in the universe. I think it's better than 50/50 odds that we'll find simple life elsewhere in this solar system. There are a few moons that are excellent candidates for supporting small amounts of simple life. But through the rest of the universe, even if the odds of a particular world supporting complex, and even intelligent life are less than 1 in a trillion, there are BILLIONS of stars in this galaxy, each with an unknown number of planets orbiting them, and BILLIONS of galaxies that we know of. So the odds are that quite a few support complex and possibly intelligent life. Especially since extremophiles here on Earth have shown that life is FAR more adaptable and resourceful than we thought even just a couple decades ago. Still, it's important to admit, we have no EVIDENCE to support this. It's just an educated guess. Not fact. Not belief. Still have questions? Get answers by asking now.
What do you think of those who say the verse in the bible, that says Let US make man in OUR image, really means the Almighty talking to ?
20 Answers Relevance Anonymous 2 hours ago I try not to think about them! It would be nice if all it took was having a perfect understanding of that passage was what "Loving the Lord your God with all your heart and soul, and your neighbor as yourself" means. But it can't actually produce some one who loves God or their neighbor. So if you don't mind, I will just let them think the way they think and encourage them to be better neighbors. Well, believe it or not, those people who wrote that believed in multiple gods. They made up that story so take it with a grain of salt. It is considered an early revelation of the Trinity. It has nothing to do with alter egos or split personality. God spoke to his firstborn Son, the "master worker" Jesus. What do you think of the answers? You can sign in to give your opinion on the answer. I'm from England. It's tradition for the King or Queen to refer to themselves in plural. This is not some weird tradition, it's an acknowledgment that they are representing the entire nation in everything they do, no matter how mundane. God is my King, so I understand him talking in plural. Your failure to understand is predicated on your inability to look beyond your narrow limits of comprehension God is never alone, it's like a king telling his minister, let us do it like this. Elohim is plural for God and the angels which is the US and OUR. Show more answers (10)

4 Answers Relevance 15 mins ago The Bible doesn't mention anything about how old he was. The Bible doesn't give a direct answer. You can find his story in John 11. Before he died, he was many ages. 10 years old, 11, 12, 13, 15. I assume you mean Lazarus of Bethany. There are multiple people in the Bible named Lazarus actually. The Bible doesn't specify his age when he was resurrected by Jesus, however, some outside sources speculate that he was around 30 years old. Still have questions? Get answers by asking now.
What are some Trinity churches that accept biological evolution?
9 Answers Relevance I believe most do. I know Catholics do. I believe Anglicans (Episcopalians in the U.S.) and Lutherans do. Doesn't matter. Whether or not you accept evolution, it is still a fact. The thing about science is that it is true whether or not you want it to be. Jesus Christ founded one Church, said it was to remain one, and promised that one Church "The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth", and "Whatsoever you bind upon Earth is bound in Heaven", and "He who hears you hears Me". As a result of these divine guarantees of truth, the teaching of that one Church (which includes well over half of all Christians) never conflicts with natural truths revealed by science. Truth cannot conflict with truth. Unauthorized manmade denominational churches that have defected from God's Church teach a great deal of untruth, as demonstrated by the fact that the teaching of each denomination contradicts the teaching of the others, and truth cannot contradict truth. So, it is no surprise that many of these false teachings also contradict natural truths clearly proven by science to be true, including biological evolution. Catholic biologist What do you think of the answers? You can sign in to give your opinion on the answer. Evolution is one of the processes by which biologists explain the diversity of life on our planet. Jesus never mentioned it. If it had been important for salvation, he would have done. Christians are prepared to go along with current scientific thinking, knowing that nothing is fixed in science and things may well be very different in 100 years' time. There are American sects who seem to think that Chapter 1 of Genesis somehow contradicts science, but they are certainly not Christian however they describe themselves. HOPEFULLY ZERO...THE BIBLE SAYS HOW GOD CREATED EVERYTHING BY SPEAKING!! STOP listening to demons. Because the evidence supporting evolution is too great for any rational, thinking person to dismiss.

Does it make more sense for the biblical flood to be localized to the middle east and north africa instead of covering all land masses?
Anonymous Anonymous asked in Society ämp; Culture Religion ämp; Spirituality · 8 hours ago Does it make more sense for the biblical flood to be localized to the middle east and north africa instead of covering all land masses? Many christians point to the fact that a lot of ancient civilizations had flood stories, like in Japan, China, North America, but since around the time of the flood, humans were still early on in creation, I think only 1000 years, humans may not have ventured as far as Japan and North America. And since they had these stories, they either existed there before the flood and few survived to tell the tale, which goes against the biblical narrative, or they came forth from Noah's family after the flood. So i think it makes more sense that it was localized and God didnt need to cover all land with water. I think it being localized helps explain how animals got to South America, North America, Australia, like the Kangaroo, they were just already there and there was no need for God to flood places like Australia, and then somehow kangaroos swam over after the ark landed And if Noah's ark was just floating around for 40 days and 40 nights, it may not have been possible to see land, because even in the 1400's it still took months and years to get places around the world by boat, so they could have floated around the area without seieng land. Anyway just thoughts on how to make it work Updated 8 hours ago: @ Anonymous, so are you saying that some people around the world survived the flood to tell the story? Thats what stops me from believing that they were every where at the time of the flood, i think it makes more sense for Chinese, mongolians, japanese, north american tribes, all came forth from Noah after the flood and the flood stories were passed down. Updated 8 hours ago: Good points Dew, but to your last paragraph, by localized, I dont mean small, I just mean that entire regions were covered, but not all land masses and the reason flood stories appear all over the earth is because they all descended from Noah. I couldnt find a biblical verse that says some humans other than Noah's family survived, so I think it is more likely that humans were not all over the place at the time, but spread out through thousands of years after the flood. Updated 8 hours ago: cont: and took the flood story with them 26 Answers Relevance The then shallow Black Sea flooded by a glacier melting of the oceans . A mark of true Christians is that they have a deep respect for the Bible. They accept it as the Word of God and believe what it says. (John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16,17) So the flood was all over the earth. U : Does it make more sense .. Me : do u even hv any .. is the Q. Yes, exactly. To understand a text written several thousand years ago, we have to ask what various terms meant to the writer, not to us in modern times. What did "the whole world" mean to a shepherd or farmer in the Mediterranean area 5,000 years ago? Obviously he was not thinking of North and South America, or Australia, or Asia, since he didn't have a clue that such places existed. He probably wasn't even aware of southern Africa and northern Europe. His "whole world" was the area surrounding the Mediterranean and Red Seas, and that was the location of the great flood. The elevated, inland Black Sea is a remnant of that great flood. What do you think of the answers? You can sign in to give your opinion on the answer. You have many false assumptions. If it was just a local flood, then why would Noah not just leave the area? He had more than 100 years since God first commanded him to build the ark, which would have been completely sufficient amount of time to leave the area. You also assume the layout of the continents at the time of Noah was the same as it is today. On what basis do you claim that? Or on what basis do you claim that humans could have not ventured that far? You also assume that the animals that existed at the time of Noah were identical to the animals of today. On what basis do you claim that? You also assume you know the path of the ark. On what basis do you claim that? You make far too many false assumptions instead of seeking to understand the truth that is in front of you. If you take a look at "flood stories" very superficially, you can come to the conclusion that they were the same event. However, If you do a bit more research, you find that they all vary greatly on significant details, i.e. in some all people are killed and recreated, some people survive in a cave, etc. You will also notice that the stories originated at different times and that all the civilizations developed near major rivers which tend to flood, sometimes seasonally. Basically the existence of "food stories" in multiple cultures suggests that they were due to local floods and not a world wide event. On the other hand, God creating a local flood is hardly miraculous and basically indistinguishable from a natural occurrence and the Bible does claim "all life" was destroyed. There are a number of problems with The Flood, as described by the Bible, for example, it would have created a genetic "pinch point" in the species which we see no sign of, we know for a fact that animals and humans were carnivores for as long as we have evidence, and given the Ark's dimensions, it would have leaked like a holey bucket in placid waters and any sort of rough waters would have torn it apart. These are just a few of the significant problems with the story. The flood wasn't just in one place, it covered the whole earth and even over the mountain tops so that when Noah sent out a bird, it couldn't land anywhere and had to return because the flood had not yet abated. Once the waters began to go down, Noah sent out a bird again and that dove came back with an olive branch in its beak so Noah knew then that the flood was receding. After that, Noah sent the bird out the third time, and it didn't return - giving an indication that it found somewhere to land on earth. It wasn't only a thousand years ago. Jesus Christ came here over 6000 years ago and Noah's flood was in the Old Testament long before that. All life on earth was destroyed in the flood except for 8 people, Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives. (Genesis 7:7) Everyone else was destroyed and life had to begin all over again. in approximately the year 2050 BC - Before Christ. Scripture reference is Genesis 6, 7, 8, and chapter 9 also. The flood needed to be large enough to end all human life besides Noah's family or there was no point to the flood. So it had to be larger than just a local region. In addition to the flood water, the Bible also says that "the foundations of deep were broken up." There appears to be when continental drift began to happen. Science currently believes that there was originally only one land mass on earth (call Pangea) and it split into the continents we know today. So Australia was part of Pangea before the flood, and would have taken centuries to drift any real distance from the rest of Asia. So animals could have easily crossed to there, North American, South America, etc. The ark was afloat a lot longer than 40 days and nights. That was the length of the actually rain that caused the flooding. (Along with water that rose from the continental breakup and from the cloud firmament that use to cover the earth.) But the ark was afloat for an entire year. It took that long for the water to recede and plant life to begin to grow again so that it could support animal life. The Ark was basically a big box. It had no keel. sails, oars, etc. There was no rudder to steer it. So we have no idea now far it traveled during that year. But it as adrift and not controlled by Noah. We are not told where he build the boat, only where it landed. The account of the flood is universally known because the descendants of Noah took it with them as they spread out across the continents. Had it been s small local flood how would people in Japan or South American have known about it? Anonymous 8 hours ago It was a worldwide flood. People were all around the earth, despite what your "history" told you. As for heaven and hell, here is the truth: The Lord Jesus Christ is God. Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell.

Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ means being forgiven all sins past and future and means going to heaven. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions.

How much power did the Catholic Church have during the Middle Ages?
6 Answers Relevance Enough power to kill millions and millions of people, and literally destroy educational advancement of any meaningful kind. They even controlled royalty and could take down a King simply by using "heresy" as their charge/weapon. Quite a lot from what I read. They were governmental, as if Christ's church was into the persecution of Christians, Jews, and Muslims who disagreed. United States Holocaust Museum After a few centuries of freedom from harassment during the Carolingian period (800-1000), the Jews of western Europe began to suffer new indignities as the crusades came on. The Muslims were the "infidel" targets in the attempted recapture of the holy places in Palestine. However, the pillage and slaughter committed by Christian (Romans Catholic) mobs against Jews on the way linger long in Jewish memory. https://www.ushmm.org/research/about-the-mandel-ce...

why are atheists so stupid in the area of understanding religion and spirituality?
Anonymous Anonymous asked in Society ämp; Culture Religion ämp; Spirituality · 25 mins ago why are atheists so stupid in the area of understanding religion and spirituality? So many of them act like they're experts, but then they speak, and prove they're not. 4 Answers Relevance Unbelievers only know a few things they have heard or read and it's all their head. They think they can know God and Jesus Christ by educating themselves. But Christianity has never been a system of education. It is a relationship that Christians have with the living God and Creator of the universe on a daily basis and moment-by-moment in the Spirit through their heart and God speaks to us through His Spirit and in His Word, but the Bible is foolishness to them. They cannot understand any of it with their natural minds. Christians have received the Spirit of God so that we may know the things that have been freely given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2:14) but as I said before, "The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. Yet he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no man, for who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2: 10 - 16) Knowing something and adopting belief in it are two separate things. Say what.!!! No. I don't think so. It's theists, that have a special book,* that give them absolute knowledge. * btw. Which is the right book. There are so many. And so many interpretations of each book.

For the Christians that believe in eternal torment, why would an Omniscient being know that most humans were going to hell and do nothing?
Anonymous Anonymous asked in Society ämp; Culture Religion ämp; Spirituality · 26 mins ago For the Christians that believe in eternal torment, why would an Omniscient being know that most humans were going to hell and do nothing? Updated 8 mins ago: It's really funny saying he sent Jesus. I'm a universalist and I believe Jesus was sent for unbelievers and sinners. Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost If Jesus came to save the lost and the lost are people who believe in him that means God has massively failed his plan. Now if it were meant for the people that go to "hell" then I'm right. 1 Timothy 4:10 because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. Updated 3 mins ago: Satan's doctrine of the eternal conscious torment really shows how much he has infiltrated religion. So many people can't believe the Bible because they can't comprehend why a God of love and justice would do this. He wouldn't. He will reconcile all men back to him.
