  1. Oh I’m always aware of that, Rocky ... and I figure I’ll have some fun too by poking holes in ridiculous arguments and pseudo-spiritual nonsense.
  2. Exposing the lies of wierwille and helping folks overcome self-deception is its own reward.
  3. true that... And don't get cornered into a conversation
  4. Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own. That is both stealing and lying. There are numerous passages throughout the Bible that indicate both stealing and lying are wrong. Obviously copyrights and judicial law concur with the Bible on this matter. Are you going for an Alan-Desrshowitz-for-the-defense-of-unabashed-plagiarism-and-other-con-jobs move? you might want to consider a different strategy to defend your admiration of wierwille… ...And actually you don’t need to defend your admiration for wierwille.
  5. Wow Mike I did a double take reading your post! And here’s why: instead of your typical beating around the bush on the plagiarism issue – you talked about it directly, revealing your true feelings – and for that I thank you !!!!! I sincerely mean that – I’m not being sarcastic. You said “I care not one bit about copyrights on these things. I'm sorry to see it bog down people the way it does. It looks very contrived and artificial to me. Let's talk about more important issues, OK.” Now it’s crystal clear to me what your opinion is of copyrights, plagiarism,
  6. Whoa whoa whoa! Careful now...I think one of those is the spell that makes the copyright symbol invisible to any plagiarist...Not sure...or maybe it’s all of those being said while you play session 1 of PFAL backwards.
  7. That vending machine analogy brings to mind the frustration many TWI-believers have to deal with...some folks think it helps to add a little body English to their believing .... visual aid - adding body English to your believing
  8. It sounds like you’re confusing Jesus’ earthly existence as a human being with his much more expansive role as the exalted Christ. A small sample of verses gives just a hint of his wide-ranging personal presence: For where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them. Matthew 18:20 Put yourselves to the test to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize regarding yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you—unless, indeed, you fail the test! II Cor. 13:5 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in
  9. This made me recall a passage that talks about the confusion and reversal on moral issues. Beware, those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter...Isaiah 5:20 NET I think there is something to what you said “I always got the impression from PFAL that while Jesus is "gone" it is our privileged and responsibility to BE him for others, until they can learn the same. “ It seems to me that may have been a huge misdirect for a lot of PFAL students - resulting in folks having an infla
  10. sounds like fun! And don’t forget the graphic novel – that might be another outlet for your creativity along with video games. My son gave me the graphic novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (which was the inspiration for the movie Blade Runner) – story by Philip K. Dick and art by Tony Parker...I have two different versions of a Dracula graphic novel and some super-hero graphic novels on Kindle...but anyway – back to you - I am blown away by how realistic looking some video games are now...I wish you good luck and good story telling on your journey!
  11. Welcome to Grease Spot, Just A Guy! Sorry I can’t help you concerning your time frame. I left in 1986. The only thing that might be remotely related to your request is to tell you that during my two years of in-residence Family Way Corps training in Rome City I was assigned to day care for a block – my group was called the Cheerful Givers. That was probably one of my favorite job assignments since we had a lot of leeway on designing our own activities and I got into hanging out with little kids anyway. My wife often complains she’s married to a three year old. I am sorry for your t
  12. Hi WordWolf just wanted to thank you for mentioning other free word processors in your posts...I looked into LibreOffice but decided to go with Neat Office which was also free in the Microsoft App Store...It works great with opening/editing existing files from my old Microsoft Office 2010…After using the bare-bones WordPad for just a few days I realized I do a lot more writing offline than I thought and without a word processor it was like going back to a Ford Model T after being used to a 2010 Ford F-150 Pickup...thanks again – you got me thinking outside the box.
  13. Like I said in my first post - this thread is for computer users like me who know just enough to get by...I guess I was spoiled when I worked for companies that usually had a very robust IT staff to support the technical needs of the company...being retired and on my own now - it's sort of like the dilemma I've faced on other topics - I find myself saying I wished I paid more attention to that when it was covered in school. As a technician I used to pride myself on being competent - given enough time I could fix just about anything. The operative phrase is "given enough time" - keep in
  14. My tastes vary genre-wise - depending on what mood I'm in - so I often wind up reading several books at a time - but I'm not a fast reader, so it might take me 3 months to finish several books. For fiction I like action/thriller/ techno-thriller/sci-fi stuff - - some of my fav authors are Stephen Hunter, Janet Evanovich, Lee Child, Philip K. Dick, C.J. Lyons, John Grisham, Tom Clancy, H.G. Wells, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, George Orwell, Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, James Rollins...late last year I finished "The Eye of God" by James Rollins - and h
  15. The movie is Event Horizon sorry I picked an obscure stinker of a movie
