Oct. Maximus - Fabulous post!!! Thank you!!!!
*Bows* Your very welcome, and i aim to please.
Well...i aim for something.
You are right, I myself do get 'causght up' in certain ideas because of my personal 'bias image'.
Cha ching! That is the correct answer. It is not only you of course, every human on this forum (i know some claim not to be but i ignore that for now)
is biased. They hear a theory, they look at the evidence and they believe that theory.
Example- Person A hears "World Trade centre brought down by government" . Person A then searches the internet for other sources and finds a
multitude. because of this, person A may believe that because he has evidence to support his or her belief.
this, of course, doesnt make it true. But the person will defend his position because he believes the evidence backs up his theory.
And, as far as the bible hohaha, ect., it does state that our choice in the sign of the beast will be up to us to decide if we shall recieve it. And,
something about it's inconvience - I'll try to find the exact phrase somewhere, but you catch my drift.
But the thing is that Revalations is a tad vague on some of these details.
With my former point. A person reads revalations and reads that the "Mark of the beast will be given to those who will recieve it." They then read
the "Real ID" idea and decide there is a connection.
I dont know the passage, but from the sound of it it is saying that people who want the mark of the beast, can have it.
The real ID, however, sounds to be mandatory. (im not in the US)
flawed evidence? or is it belief in a theory running parrallel with "Evidence"?
I beleive in Jesus christ and I have faith in God.
I am an atheist historian. i can admit for a fact that Jesus Christ existed as a man. I know for a fact that many of the things he said in the bible
can be taken as truth.
I also know that many things may have been attributed to him. Its happened many times before in history. So the Jesus who is telling everyone to be
nice to each other, who is a talented doctor and a man of peace. Later he becomes a spiritual healer, and the son of god.
And once this whole ID idea came out, it's sent chills.
Which came first, the fear of real ID, or the idea that Real ID was evil?
I cant stop you being fearful, learning psychology you will know that fear is deeper than that. All i can do is hope that if you open your mind to the
concept and allow other ideas to happen, its not all darkness and gloom.
'right can be violated...the human body cannot be marked by someone else without permission' - There's something wrong with that sentence, my
Only because i havnt stated my beliefs fully.
I see rights such as the US constitution as being flawed, or able to be flawed. Simply for the fact that they are created by humans for an age past.
i am an atheist, but if there is one thing i believe in. it is that respect from one human to another should not need to be enforced by law. Respect
of mind, respect of body.
I will always put my body in the way to protect others. That is my token of respect for them. All i hope is that others do the same courtesy for me.
There is no excuse in the world that should allow one human to violate another humans body or mind without permission.
yes, you do, and thats why you and all of us our here.
I care to educate, i want people to not be fearful of the darkness. Of things they cannot see or know. Thats the main reason why i am here.
And, when identity theft has been rising
And if we were microchipped stealing an identity would be that much harder, wouldnt it?
now what if it was a requirement for all americans to be vegetarian. It is healthy.
Except for the loss of things such as Iron and other things humans eat meat for.
Well, the ID card just decided, you are not eating
So where does it say that your real ID card will choose your decisions for you?
Thats right, nowhere. Your belief is that the world will become stricter. I know it will be hard to change your mind, but just think of the Card (or
chip, or whatever) as your bank account in your hand. No control, nothing like that. Just a tool.
Mountains out of molehills.
Oh, and those people who are knocking 'convenience', you put a nail through wood with your hands, ill use a hammer. We will see who comes out with
less blood on their hands, faster and more effectively.
*Bows to nowayreally* I apologise for my past harshness, of course.
