My House is Falling Apart

Any time I get behind on maintenance, there it goes...

Any city is the same. Look at Chicago.

I predict that if you wait long enough it could happen to any city.

What do you think?

very interesting

I'd like to see what a Bible prophecy scholar says about this! Isaiah is full of interesting prophecies, a fascinating book.

I am wondering as I read it, what is the "glory of Jacob?" And what is the "remnant of Aram?" Does anyone know?

I also like the Biblical admonitions against going to war. More Christians need to hear this, like Chuck Baldwin was saying...

Thank you for posting this.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."-- Albert Einstein

Again?... This is the fourth end of times prediction in my life.

Here's a good summation:

And to top it all off, even Jesus said multiple time his followers would be alive for his return.

It is so silly.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

The history of Damascus begin over 8,000 years ago.

My impression is that this is the a rephrasing of the old warning about man's works.

"Remember that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return."
—Genesis 3:19

Free includes debt-free!

The obliteration of Rio de Janeiro... prophesied in Starship Troopers.

Not a fair comparison, I know. After all, Starship Troopers is science fiction, whereas Isaiah is fantasy.

there's a difference

there's a difference between fortune teller prophecy voodoo shit... and self fulfilling prophecy that this dumb shit of a human species brings on itself to then look at some shitty religious mind control writing and say see, they prophesised it... how about you think for yourselves one time and go the way of peace...

forget it, i'm truly disgusted with the human species as a whole and am starting to believe that this planet deserves complete annihilation.

I understand your frustration

I understand your frustration and can recommend books that will perhaps provide some clarity. At the very least they're just new ideas.

Ishmael by Daniel Quinn

Food of the Gods by Terence Mckenna

Speaking of Daniel Quinn - If They Give You Lined Paper...

Write Sideways!

I wasn't smart enough to know that when I was in school, but it is what I've been striving for - when appropriate - since I escaped Institutional life.

Note that it isn't always appropriate, however. Sometimes the lines are quite helpful. Other times they're bullsh!t.

The important part is having a choice, and having the wisdom to exercise it.

When you're institutionalized, rare indeed it is when you have a choice.

An excellent book as well

Beyond Civilization is a good one too- short and sweet and to the point. We cannot go back, the only escape is forward.


Are you insinuating that there is a set of values other than that invented by the human species? That humans are accountable to something that could inflict complete annihilation?

just wonderin.... ;-)


nope not what i was saying at all, but nice one :-)

people are accountable for their actions, for instance for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, karma and such that could work itself through the "system" if you will without an external force orchestrating everything.

i upvoted you btw ;-)

Ron Paul 2012


karma, sounds like the same fantasy as God. isn't karma an "external force"? if it's not, then it doesn't affect us and we can just say there is no such thing. also, what do you mean exactly when you say "people are accountable for their actions"? is that even true? if so, why are there so many corrupt politicians? so many questions...

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

This is millennium old

This is millennium old history that happened a few times in our past, thousands of years ago, that you don't remember happening because you weren't alive back then.

That's not to say it won't happen again in the future. The Bible is like that. It doesn't mean it will happen again in the future.

Mystery religions and secret societies try to make it happen over and over again to capitalize on the predictable outcome.

It's not rocket science.

yeah they're banjare ke pakke

in my language meaning full of shit and the clueless dumshits try to fulfil the prohecy and cry like the clueless lemmings that they are that it was tru all along... what a bunch of dumb shits.. i have to find a job in finance or banking so i can exploit this stupidity, not sure why im on the side of freedom

I imagine

Damascus has gone through its fair share of being ruined, like most ancient cities. But hey, maybe this is the big one Ethel.

Yeah. The Mongols made mincemeat of the joint.

Yeah. Mongols & Mamalukes made mincemeat of the joint. Hulagu swept down and wrought unspeakable havoc on the city in around the year 1260. A a century and a half later, Tamerlane utterly demolished the city, making towers of skulls from the slain in his fashion (a ghoulish practice he used with 30,000 victims of Bahdad). Tamerlane rounded up all the fabulous artisans of Damascus, put them in chains, and force-marched them to Samarkand to work their skills in his capital. "Let the dogs of Damascus search for their masters' ghosts" was one reputed saying.

Being a great city on an historic crossroads, Damascus always bounced back, as it had in the troubling times of the eleventh century when Turks sacked it repeatedly. But recovering from Tamerlane took some time, especially under the Ottoman Turks, who neglected their Asian conquests.

Some say it didn't become a great city again until Hafez al-Assad made it so in the last fifty years.

Re: The Mongols made mincemeat of the joint

This is the best answer I've heard so far, by a long shot. This is why I consult, with the Ron Paul crowd. I never would have heard this anywhere else not even out of Mr. Paul himself. When I run for president in 2020, I want fightapathy in my cabinet as an adviser.

Can I be "Secretary Without Portfolio"? I've always wanted to be

Can I be "Secretary Without Portfolio", future President-elect Yarger? I've always wanted to be one of those!
