I cast my righteous damnation unto ye and shall cast thee out of the garden of olives. Ye shall leave on your pig-feet with your pig-tails tucked between thine legs and shalt sizzle-lean in the fires of hell.

And the smoke from your bacon shall rise up, up and away unto our father, the spirit in the sky and his mouth shall water and his blessings shall dribble down upon us.

Yea thou sinner that lay with his sister as if she were a alter boy and smokes UNFILTERED cigarettes after he spread his pork seed.

The minions of shaitan and also the teletubies and some of the muppets shall flee my righteous feces of the bull crying "save me miss piggy" but it shall be for not.

And Lo I say unto you I am the EGGMAN I am also the walrus koo koo kachew.

I hope this cleared everything up


Finally, we have achieved "true enlightenment".

You wish man. I responded to you point-by-point to start but you keep making broad generalizations and vague references to good and evil, and it's getting boring. So either you're just looking for a little attention or you're an extremely ineffective writer. You could refute that by being more specific in your posts, but you keep backing up broad, sweeping statements with more broad, sweeping statements, so, here's to you making posts that are a bit more interesting. Seeya.

Much of your thinking is in error Arkaleus. The majority of original settlers were actually involved in commercial, NOT religious ventures. Of those many grew tobacco, a highly profitable drug. Many employed indentured servants [black and white] quite a few used slaves [black].

Often people romanticize the past. The perfect pious noble people of the past of your imagination don't exist. The people of the past weren't marble statues, they were real living breathing people, with many admirable qualities and shortcomings.

If you don't like how things are NOW, don't try to saddle it up with your fantasies of the past. Look at it for what it is. Take what you see as the good, the bad, the indifferent, express those ideas as objectively as possible and what you think are good ideas to change those things that are wrong.

If you don't look at the present and past objectively, honestly it makes you sound like a whiner. Be intelligent, be clinical, be passionate, but do so with facts as accurate as possible.

Our system has not been hijacked by the marketplace, it is/was/has been the marketplace. Let it also include the marketplace of ideas as well.

Our federal goverment is essentially a criminal organization, fronted by politicians bought and paid for by American corporations. We should work at turning our corrupt marketplace into a fair marketplace. It will only be achieved by intelligent objective people willing to invest some time, energy and money.

You may have grown up a mormon, ect Ark, but your ideology and verbal venom has been shaped by the muslim "so called" preachers...

Pigs?? That's what the extreme muslims call Americans, and infidels, i've researched them, I've watched extreme leaders of the muslims religion preach, and you have become everything they want you to be. Your brainwashed, your "candid" judgment of American culture is wrong. Purely wrong, however all I will agree with in your rants is how we are losing the traditional culture that once was the heart of America...
However through all the hustle and bustle, people will always come together, people like the feeling of community, we are social animals, and we do nothing but respect eachother and help eachother out, we enjoy eachother's company, and will fight for whats right for someone we don't even know if they have been done wrong.
I've seen it this weekend, i've seen at Reagan's funeral, i've seen it september 11th, i've seen it over and over....

I am so discusted that you call yourself American, and that you come on this board and spew nothing but hate, extremist points of view, and regurgitated bs from your fellow muslim leaders... Pigs? I think thats the purely self projection on your part... If you haven't noticed, everybody on this board is already aware of your obvious p.o.v on the traditional american values..So thank you captain obvious, what else do you have to offer besides trying to force your religious ideology on people? Oh and the name calling?

I would love to see Arkaleus visit Japan, LOL. I think his head would explode! There "vice" is celebrated, sex is on Saturday morning cartoons, and there is no right wing religious influence at all. He is so ignorant to the rest of the world that he seems to think America is the land of filth, Europe is also not under the influence of morality police and is much more liberal than America, he obviously has no idea what he is ranting about, America is the PERFECT place for him. Next to middle eastern countries, we are under some of the most strict religious oppression in the world. ESPECIALLY Utah, if that is still not good enough for him, perhaps he should move to Saudi Arabia, but if he does he'd better make damn sure his "buddies" know he is a devout muslim, or we'll be analyzing on ATS the video of HIS beheading at the hands of those he admires so much.

I don't know why you guys persist in maintaining this conversation.

Ark, is using words above his pay-grade in good old fashioned King James/The Ten Commandments style. But I guess they teach you to talk like a profit at True Connections Broadband Temple.

Everyone else, FOR SHAAAAAAAAAME FOUL CREATURES! This garbage was the very reason the Pit was shut down in the first place (which I think it fair to say that I broke the camels back with my rebutal to Zedd), but never-the-less things have to change.


Intructions:

Ark (translated for his reading pleasure): Take thyself offst to the cool drink meadows to break bread and remember teachings. Lest you forget that that which is of the shadow is linked and keyed to that which is nobel, you will perish under the skies of apathy and bake in the heat of shame.

Everyone else: I don't want to cause alarm, but there is a desperate poster on the edge of the site. Please back a safe distance from your keyboard for at least 6 hours, and refraim from returning to this thread.

Ever, or penalties will be created...

and enforced.

KrazyJethro,

Please forgive me, but I'm not sure what you mean, what penalties? How would this thread cause the pit to be shut down?

LOL, I think this has become a degenerative thread. The posts are getting bizzare and CrazyJethro sounds like he is trying to intimidate people into not posting on this thread.

With popcorn in hand, let the circus continue.

Arkaleus -
I am a true Christian. I belev in the lord Jesus Christ as my personal savior. I am not qualified to respond to you but his words re.

"let he who is without sin cast the first stone" Are you, am I, Is any of us without sin? Lets ask my personal savior.
"no one is good, none save god"
"There is no one righteous, not even one"
And what of clean and unclean food?
"What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean. "

You say that you call for those who are righteous, and those willing to judge, But My lord has said that none are righteous and that none may judge lest they are without sin.

You cast stones saying that we are the "children of shaitan" and in so doing show yourself to be breaking the scriptures, For to judge is to be judged and none of us can through our own righteousness gain entry to the gates of heaven. For all of us have the seed of sin within and only with the love of the lord may that sin be overcome.

I am not righteous though I try to live in a way that will please god, I will never be righteous for I am human and not god, I do not have the right to judge others because I am not without sin. So tell me Ark, what gives you the rght to judge? what makes you righteous when only god is righteous? Are you saying that you are God? re you saying that you are without sin both in thought and deed?

AHHH Shucks I was just messing with him


You never let me have any fun


Seriously though any time he wishes to climb off that high horse and bring his prophet to english translater I would be happy to debate the declining morals of western society. Hell KJ weve had this same debate a dozen without calling each other names (no matter how much we may have thought it)

Yes, but we have respect for each otherI'm just joking, I think this thread is rediculous and I am truely surprised that people are taking ANY part of it seriously anymore.

There is a proper way to have a discussion, and this isn't it.

As for threatening people, no, I certainly am not. I was saying (in mostly joke form) that this type of thread caused the distruction of the Pit we all loved. I was also talking about how I was the one who put the last straw on and made it a no insult zone (I think so at least).

Anyway, have fun ladies.

Sexist pig... You just condemned other people for partaking in a thread that is useless and then you go and say something thats as useless as your pinky finger... Do you have a problem with women??


Also, if you have a problem with people continuing to post in this thread why do you keep coming back to let everybody know how stupid they are for doing so... hypocritical... Or did you just come back to slap Amuk's ass?? Get a room...

I see KJ's point perfectly. Arky started a thread about 2 weeks ago, Something like "I'm going to leave now", foolishly I asked "what's the problem, dude?" Arky doesn't want dialog, he want's to preach, and what he's preaching is beyond me because he never says anything. KJ's saying leave this thread alone, let it die. I'll add to that, when Arky starts another thread about leaving, don't reply, attention NEEDERS are not needed.

Dude, I know, there's not point in kicking a dead horse... Now this thread has become a chit chat thread among ourselves, i'm on a coffee binge right now so i'm alittle grumpy... I'm not going to reply to this thread anymore unless kj has something to say to me.. which he probably won't because he just ignores me anyway... so i'm going back to bts to argue with a teenage kid about how he's acting like ghetto trash..

I hate to let this thread die its been the most fun I have had in weeks



I seriously doubt any of us have taken much of this thread to heart I know I havent. Most of us are fairly old friends and have agreed, disagreed, and agreed to disagree on dozens of threads and dozens of subjects.

I must admit that all this talk of pigs HAS affected me though I think I am gonna BBQ some baby-back ribs

See you murdering pig/ape spawns of shaitan later

Yes, I hate women of every kind. Grrrr, you should tell my wife that, I think she'd laugh.

As for "condemning" people, I'm not sure that word means what you think it means (think Princess Bride). I've condemned no one, and I made my point with a joke. Wow, but I know it's hard to tell with all the "FOUL CREATURES" talk. Come on, how about relaxing. I enjoy it often.



Also, if you have a problem with people continuing to post in this thread why do you keep coming back to let everybody know how stupid they are for doing so... hypocritical... Or did you just come back to slap Amuk's ass?? Get a room...


I think you are using the word "contributing" way too loosely, but that's me. I don't even know what your problem is? If the light hearted jabs are too much for you, I'd think you'd leave, but no. Only trying to keep the "Pit" still able to make a come back.

I liked it til it got out of control

Also, I am sorry that two men can't respect and joke with each other. But most folks who dwell in the faceless internet too long tend to dislike and humanity in the fantasy.

A thousand pardons. By the way, personal insults are strictly penalized, so I would watch what you say around here. Banshee's a bit of an ax grinder.

Sure, Europe is more liberal than the USA, however Europe is more capable of handling it due to it's more disciplined people.

There is no such thing as good and evil without God.

Without God you are left with moral relativism.

Suppose exactly 50% of the population of the USA decide that cannibalism is OK and the other 50% decide it is not OK.

If there is no God then the 50% that are for cannibalism are perfectly justified in their own eyes in viewing all forms of life as just animals and its a case of survival of the fittest just like evolution has shown in the last million years or so.

There is no justifiable reason why anyone shouldn't do exactly what they want to do in the world whether anyone else in the world disagrees or not.

Now if a majority agrees on a certain principle then they are able to more easily impose that principle onto the minority and the larger the majority the easier it is to impose.

It's like the whole homosexual debate. Without God there is absolutely no reason at all why people should be denied the right to do exactly what they want and any move by the majority to restrict them is simply because they have a differing opinion and can impose that opinion because they are the majority.

If God created the universe then He makes the rules and is at perfect liberty to do whatever He chooses with his creation. He is therefore free to impose whatever rules and ideas he chooses onto his creation and ultimately if his creation does not obey then they better Beware !

If God created Man and Woman to procreate in only 1 way and that any other sexual relationships amount to disobedience to Him then that is an ABSOLUTE reason why homosexuality is wrong, not a relativistic one.

Of course then theres the whole issue of whether God did actually create the universe but without God we are certainly left in a situation where nobody can say their choices are right and someone elses are wrong because it all becomes relative.
