t: I agree ... The Term, "Super-Natural," is NOT helpful and should be avoided ...


I disagree. 


I don't think arbitrarily changing the defintions of commonly used words simply because you personally don't like them does much to forward communication.  And here is the first defintion of "supernatural" from Mirriam Webster: "of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe; especially : of or relating to God or a god, demigod, spirit, or devi."


Who are you, exactly, to demand that we scrap the most commonly used definition of the word?

what exactly would complaining look like?




Typical quote mining.  A day later and a different thread and a totally different context to pick a fight and incidentally to derail a thread that cannot be deal with.  Disgusting.

I would suggest that given a bit more time ursa might be equvalent. Yellow Yellow solved a bear cannister in seconds that defeated many humans with directions.  If humans don't kill them off first.  See Vital Signs by Dean Ing.  Neanderthal was probably more intelligent and certainly a better apex predator than Homo.  In their own way cetaceans may be as advanced as we are.  Their lack of toolmaking capability is a prejudice of a weakling species that would be extinct without effective killing tools.  Canis is another species that might compete with Homo at least in the smarts department.  What to they have to do to repeat? Invent God?

I sometimes think they invented 'owners'...is that close?

Does this mean that it is  perfectly reasonable for John Nash to believe in the CIA agent once he  encountered the CIA agent? And it was perfectly reasonable to try to  analyze news articles for significant patterns that only Nash could  find?

You can defend neither your knowledge of Christianity nor the  Bible so you make a transparantly false allegation in an attempt to  derail the thread.  Then you go on with a pathetic simile that has nothing to do with anything.

The  only people here who have studied the Bible "in all of the major  versions, frequently side by side," are myself and some other Christians  here.   The way you quote it out of context is like trying to fool Roy  Rogers into believeing you know all about horses when its obvious by the  way you ride that you've never been in a saddle before.

Oh I've defended it quit well.  Enough to frustrate the most of you into resorting to clever editing and other cheap tactics to avoid my arguments.

Technically, such behavior is  unfortunately part of the platform.  All you can do is respond to the  last relevant post, and hope the thread gets back on track.   Alternatively you can respond to the trolling on a new thread or the Off  Topic/Hijack Response thread and hope all follow. Or both.
