Trees are used a lot in the bible.  Remember how it is legal to beat your wife with a stick of a certain size from a tree.

I think that was the Koran.
Might be...it is so hard to keep all these holy books straight.

Wonder if they support the ARK Park?  Well, it is clear coal is our future.  So is shoeing horses and jobs for those guys who light street lamps at night.

Congrats...imagine being born in 2017 and all the stuff this one will see in its lifetime.

Uh, I did try to explain before that I was taking on board some of what Jag said and was willing to go with her sticky idea/post what I was going to as suggestions in a different section other than the rule section?  :-\

Still, I suppose it doesn't matter really. Frankly, at this stage, because I'm getting the strong impression that, at least for the most part, this idea really isn't going down too well with others here and that, in recent weeks (since my creating this thread), I've been unexpectedly very busy with things offline (and can't see this situation ending any time soon) upon further thought I'm thinking that it's probably best that I forget this idea for now.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Congrats jynnan! :-) Glad to hear that things are looking good so far. Hoping that you soon get to further share your good news!

Yeah, just saw that on Patheos. Like velkynn and jynn, I'd rather believe it's someone trolling. But in a country that elected our own Il Duce in a cheap toupee, sheer stupid can't be ruled out.

Like you said on the Charlottesville thread, vel, this kind of shit (assuming this particular group is serious) has always been there. It's just that the new social media gives every idiot a bullhorn.

Daughter told us on her 30th birthday a few weeks ago. She's still a couple of weeks shy of that first trimester milestone, but had her first ultrasound yesterday and came over to share the picture of the little gummy-bear!  ;D

All looking good so far.

So since I'm still forbidden from sharing on facebook and such, I'm doing it here before I explode! She's been married for almost 6 years, so getting into that "it's about time!" territory LOL

I'm hoping that this is a spoof, but never underestimate the power of stupid

Kentuckians for Coal is an ad-hoc coalition of miners, union officials, family members and coal users created to defend the Kentucky coal industry against encroachment from renewable energy industries and from economic development initiatives aimed at lessening America’s dependence on coal. Kentuckians for Coal stands against the eclipse and those who worship it.

I saw a link to an article the other day about the "warnings" for Christians associated with the eclipse, but wasn't in the mood to follow it up. Maybe it was this same sort of thing (linked at the bottom of the above article) http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2017/08/09/preacher-anne-graham-lotz-the-solar-eclipse-is-god-judging-america-somehow/#QHGRhuRrK4pQDzxp.99  , though for some reason the way it was worded made me think more of End Times. Don't remember, though I do recall thinking that these people seem to have no clue that eclipses can be predicted way into the future and have been going on in fixed schedules since the solar system was formed.

I really got a giggle at the little quote in the second article, though...How are these people for real? This sounds like a Poe satatement if there ever was one.

Never invite this woman to give a toast at your wedding.

I remember when the bride and groom first fell in love. They held hands, just like the hands of Jesus that were eventually nailed to a cross. When I think of the happy couple, I think of the murder of my savior.

Had forgotten about this one till hearing it on Heart radio just now. It's one of those songs I've heard a few times before, liked, but had no clue who the artist was or what the song title was:
