Has the cornerstone been set for the rebuilding of the temple?
By the way, regarding your username (Gestehen Sie Und Gibt Auf) that appears to be very English phraseology ("Confess and give up.") Shouldn't it be something more like, "Bekennen Sie und übergeben Sie?" ...not that I know anything about where German figures of speech (many) go from one year to the next.
Ok. I've been looking into it a bit, and writing down some of the relevant passages, as well as writing down some historical points, and cultural standpoints. Either tomorrow, or Monday, I will have up a detailed post on it. I will ping you (and anyone else interested) to it, and we can all have a long, intellectual and civil discussion. ;)
I do agree -I seem to recall how the forced slaves of Allah
also believe the Messiah will come soon-only they foolishly think He will return to lead them into some glorious slaughter of all Jews and Christians. Even seem to recall somewhere where the ancient Mayan Calandar seems to end
shortly after 2005?but me foggy brain can't confirm source for either.
It is a time, he explained, when many good things are created in the world and the progress of science and technology has made it possible to solve many human problems, to overcome diseases, famine, etc., on one hand. On the other hand, it is for the first time since God created human beings that humans have taken hold of such means of destruction that the whole of our race and even the globe itself can be destroyed instantly.
Not too sound like a nudge or anything, but I kinda wish the Rabbi had stressed the nightmarish Frankensteinian turn of the sciences and the billowing arrogance of the humanists rather than the old leftist bugbear of global thermonuclear destruction.
Yeah, and end Daylight Savings Time! Oh, and fix baseball so there's no regular season interleague competition (and maybe trim back the overexpansion). And for sure get rid of the designated hitter rule. [/humor]
All kidding aside, may Mashiach HaMelekh come soon, speedily, and in our days. If he doesn't come soon, the entire earth will soon be a sewer.
Christ is coming.
"I hate to tell this guy, but he's about 2,000 years behind the times."
And he is...a false prophet.
True. Short of islamics nuking something the only nukes wars I see is India-Pakistan or N.Korea-neighbors (to end very quickly with S.Korea becoming an island).
Thanks. Love your tag-line, btw. It applies to all atheists, including the rightwing ones here at Free Republic.
