I prefer 1/.15, but 6.66 is a perfect exchange rate.  That means for every 15 Bitcoins that is $100, every 150 bitcoins is $1000.

The mark of the beast 666 USD is still a way off. It will come though. We may see it soon in terms of JPY. As for ZWD that mark of the beast was surpassed when Satoshi Nakamoto mined the Genesis block.

As a Christian I noticed it was lingering around that number but didn't really think much of it. After all 666 is a number just like any other number. Plus some say the original number of satan was actually 616. Not to mention, as a true believer in God, I am not to be afraid of the devil because I know he's utterly powerless in the end. However I can see how quickly the world is moving toward the fulfillment of prophecy. To think that Bitcoin is satanic though is kinda silly. The mark of the beast will be clearly recognized when the world makes the decision to embrace satan, and follow him as their God, thus creating a scenario where those who do not concur with them shall be demonized by the demons themselves, at which point we can finally rejoice because their eternal doom is near. All they must do at that point is delude them selves to join the cult which will attempt to force the TRUE followers of God to worship an impostor, and that will be our ticket to say "no" even if death is the consequence. Remember what Jesus said and told us to do? "Watch."

I have heard that one theory about the "666" relates to money. Apparently there was a Roman coin with the number on it. Because the Romans were hated by some at the time, the association with evil started.

Nice little theory. Unfortunately it's biased and not accurate at all just like most things atheists pull out of the air. However, you can and will believe whatever you want. and while you do that, revelations are being fulfilled.

Uhh, ok. I said I heard that somewhere. I was not alive in Roman times, so not sure. As far as what athiests "pull out of thin air", You honestly think those cartoons for adults in the bible are anything but fantastical musings from the bronze age? Noah, the garden of Eden? Oh please.  ::)

Actually that is anything but the truth. it will be the worst time for us. Your side (evil) will be rejoicing, because you are deceived. My Messiah said "11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." so that means also many "Christians" will fall away and join the delusion. So tell me how are they trying to make it happen? No true Christian would want armageddon to happen. It honestly makes no sense. In fact, the contrary is true. The Christians, if anything, wish it wouldn't happen, cause the hell we have to go through as your side continues to wage a senseless war against believers, ushering it in with your ignorance. We have to defend ourselves, and in doing so, you are walking further away.. Your choice! it was predestined to be this way. Notice how my tone is not at all surprised with this. I'm not saying the end is right around the corner, but every day it seems more evident with the content of conversation that I am sort of required to respond to, since people are mentioning a subject which I do have an opinion on.

While most believed in Santa, I was one of those who never did.. and it made me angry that my parents would lie to me about it. Made me feel like they didn't care all too much about me, to be honest.

Funny how that works.

My Messiah said "11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."

When has that not been true?  

Quote
The Christians, if anything, wish it wouldn't happen, cause the hell we have to go through...

Many Christians, mostly of the fundamentalist variety, seemingly can't wait for Armageddon because that will be the time when they will get "raptured" up to
heaven to be with Jesus and so will avoid all the nastiness of this material realm ( and which is why the State of Israel gets more support from American
fundamentalists than they do from even American Jews ). That's what many of you Christians have been told by some of those "false prophets" and the like
even though I am not sure that rapture stuff is even in that Bible of yours... which btw was compiled by Romans ( Bishop Iraneus etc. ) for reasons of
politically expedience and is not history, or meant to be taken literally...  but you are free to do so as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on others.  

These are just my opinions of course and I don't expect you or anyone else to accept it when I am quite agnostic about such things myself.  

I do however find it very unprofessional and childish of Voorhees to engage in religious trolling with threads like this... and I would suggest it would be
best to not to try and argue with the "unbelievers", as you perhaps regard them, since they just want to make fun of you and your beliefs. Jesus
never did ask for his followers to go out and make a nuisance of themselves by trying to convert people. The whole "Christ" thing ( Jesus was not
the first who attained to the Christos, nor will he be the last, according to what I have learned in many years of comparative religious studies and
the like )  was originally meant as a school of the mysteries for only a few followers who were called to such a path... not something for everyone.  
The whole evangelical thing is part of the distortion of the message of the early Christian mystics...  so everyone should just relax and try and
tolerate others.

I live in Texas and nearly everyone here confesses to faith in Christ, but I hardly see a single soul who's living a life in anticipation of any rapture. They simply have faith that God is taking care of His people. now unfortunately, I am of the opinion that they have forgotten about Jesus altogether. I don't know if you read the part where Jesus said, "Watch out! Don't let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don't let that day catch you unaware,"

Other than that, I disagree with most of what you said, but it's okay.. believe what you want. I do agree that evangelism is not really the way of God. It's more of a private thing. but even Jesus agreed, when He said to go hide from others when you pray. However, this is not praying, this is witnessing or stating the truth which I feel compelled to do.

Well I've met and seen fundamentalist Texans who very much are anticipating that, so that just shows that
people can have different experiences in the same arena and form differing opinions. I have not met and talked
to 'all' Texans and I doubt that you have either, so it would not be the thing for either of us to consider as
anything close to a certainty, much less "truth."

I don't know if you read the part where Jesus said, "Watch out! Don't let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don't let that day catch you unaware,"

You see that is a big problem for Christians. I would suggest you would be hard pressed to find any educated non-christians who
would regard the bible as "revealed truth" or the "word of God" anymore than they would regard in that way similar books and
collected tales, like the exploits of King Arthur; Hercules; or Cuchulainn.  Such books can of course contain important lessons,
on morality etc., and serve many psychological functions and needs, but are not meant to be history books or science texts.


Quote
Other than that, I disagree with most of what you said, but it's okay.. believe what you want.

Thanks, but ya know, agnosticism and similar philosophies are about trying 'not' to bind oneself
to any particular belief... rather trying to see what is front of ones nose as clearly as possible
and making the best decisions in the here and now moment...  something like learning to rely
on ones own intelligence rather than the dogma of people who lived thousands of years ago.
But that's just trying to explain the ways I favor and not trying to get you or anyone to join me.

You mentioned the word "faith"... and that's what religion is all about isn't it. It is an inner and very personal compulsion,
and yes 'private' like you say; not based on externalities and scientific facts etc.. That is not to dismiss it or say it does not
have value, but rather that it is not something to try and impose on others who have their own paths to follow in their own way.

Yeah you're right, I don't need your tolerance considering mercy doesn't come from you, it comes from God on Judgement day. Humanity is merciless, faithless and all around not good. It's a fact that we are all evil anyway. It's just that some choose to cling to it and forfeit the eternal salvation of their souls. I know that's because of ignorance. So I don't need the defense of the ignorant. What good is it, if it's insincere? I'm going one way, you're going another way. We will never be in agreement.

religion hits close to home for most people
I once had a friend that was a "jehovah witness" and was dedicating her life to going door to door trying to convert people.
I thought about "GOD" for a long time in my younger days, and after all that thinking, i call myself a existentialist determinist, most say the two world views cant be mixed but i say:

"existence precedes essence, but the truth precedes all"

Well anyway, this has been fun, but I'm done with this thread and I won't be coming back.

As a devotee of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I have faith that I'll be protected from any devils and such. Thank goodness!

You should avoid joining churches that were started by a Kermit the Frog impostor and who is also a closet atheist pretending to be agnostic.

Quote
Papyrus 115 and Ephraemi Rescriptus has led some scholars to conclude that 616 is the original number of the beast. If this variant is the original number of the Beast, it would be catastrophic to existing dispensational literature.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_the_Beast

The 'Beast' is really a Serpent. According to Strong's:
2342 therion - thay-ree'-on--(venomous, wild) beast.

Quote
As the American Revolution grew, the snake began to see more use as a symbol of the colonies.

Religious tolerance lol or more like the intolerant religious, nearly every forum I go to there is always someone who eventually comes peddling this shit inappropriately, funny though you usually dont see the other religions near as much as those who are smug in knowing nearly everyone but them is going on the eternal bbq.
These folks make me want to puke, I know I was once one until I saw the light and was able to look at it with an honest appraisal.
Oh well nothing more to say on this but the ignorant list has its first one.

Religious tolerance is tolerating that which you know without a doubt to be wrong.

I go by the definition used by religioustolerance.org (http://religioustolerance.org) personally.

What I don't like is anyone of any religion who considers everyone not a member of their particular religion to be evil, if they can't display tolerance themselves they can't expect it from others.

Damned? I don't know but what you say isn't very Christian.  I am surprised by how many so-called Christians never seem to make it out of the old testament and read the new one... The part that has the teachings of Jesus in it. I don't know how the old one can even be called Christian, since it came before Jesus and in a way the new testament is a repudiation of that mean spirited desert God of vengeance Yaweh, and instead talks about a God of Love.    

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. [Matthew 5:9]  

Resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. [Matthew 5:39]  

I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for
them which despite-fully use you, and persecute you; [Matthew 5:44]

If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to cast a stone at her. [John 8:7]  

Do not judge, lest you too be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the
measure you use, it will be measured to you. [Matthew 7:1 & 2.]  

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy [Matthew 5:7]  

But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.  [Matthew 6:15]

Whoops maybe you are damned, or at least your hypocrisy seems to have upset your Father.

Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. - Matthew 5:17

Uhm...What bs are you spouting?  Jesus himself states the importance of the Old Testament.

Luke 16:31
And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

luke 24:27
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

This is OffTopic to the 666 thread any way.

LOL   

So fuck all that compassion and love stuff.   If you are a true christian you can ignore things like the sermon on the mount and instead follow the ways of the old testament. You don't have to turn your cheek or be forgiving and instead attack non-christians as evil and encourage them to kill themselves if they disagree with you.

Okay got it.   ;)

But that is kinda lazy... aren't you supposed to completely destroy them yourself?

"When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. . . . This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.
     However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you." [ Deuteronomy 20:10-17 ]

You are an embarrassment to all true Christians and to Christ himself.  Do you really think suggesting suicide is compatible with the teachings of Jesus?  If you want to pervert his teachings within your own mind, that's your business.  But when you spread your fucked up opinions as gospel, then you have to answer to those of us who believe his good news.  Yes, we're all assholes compared to him, but he taught us to try and be like him, not to accept that we are assholes and to discourage others.  Peace be with you, I'm saying a prayer for you now.

Recent scientific studies have show that the higher your intelligence the more likely it is that you will be an atheist.

A resent, but less scientific, poll on this forum would suggest that this community has a higher than average intelligence.

So, anyone trying to push a religious argument is probably going to have a hard time.

Glen danzig taught me that 777 is the more important number. Also has anyone ever looked into the church of satan. Their "commandments" are pretty reasonable (for the most part).

Quote
The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

    1)Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
    2)Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
    3)When in another's lair, show them respect or else do not go there.
    4)If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat them cruelly and without mercy.
    5)Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
    6)Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and they cry out to be relieved.
    7)Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
    8)Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
    9)Do not harm little children.
    10)Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
    11)When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask them to stop. If they don’t stop, destroy them.

For guys its hiding in the bushes until a female is alone then jumping out in front of her and sitting down naked with legs splayed out. For girls, it depends on the individual circumstances.

All hail scientific studies from questionable sources.

This from someone who no doubt takes the bible as "truth", even though it is rife with contradictions, which is understandable given its many authors and editors and outright fabricators. ( there are many histories of that book which can show what parts of that compilation come from [possible] original sources and which have been changed or added-in later... but of course anyone who would question the word of God must be automatically a "questionable source"... God wouldn't lie or play ticks right?

"I also gave them over to statutes that were not good and laws they could not live by; I let them become defiled through their gifts—the sacrifice of every firstborn—that I might fill them with horror so they would know that I am the LORD."  [Ezekiel 20:25-26]

Whoops!   :-\

And that Old Testament God is nothing like a psychopath either.   ;)

 )

It is great to have a dogma to live by that allows you to do anything you want just by being selective over which verse you choose to follow in any given moment.

And what is even more wonderful is that it doesn't matter what you do... you just have to say you accept Christ as your Lord and Saviour and bingo you have won
yourself a first class seat in heaven!  

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith . . . not by works." [Ephesians 2:8-9]

Woot!  

One just needs to conveniently ignore other sections of that consistent and authoritative book of God:

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? . . .
Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." [James 2:14-17]

"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done." [Revelation 22:12]


Note I am not attacking Christians here, or Christianity.  I know lots of Christians who are not intolerant hypocritical assholes...
and it is one of the worst kinds of hypocrite, isn't it, who condemns others as evil for not being a follower of Jesus while not
only not being able to do that himself but taking a righteous stance to refuse to even try.

"Behold, I am coming soon"?  

How long ago did he say that?  That guy is as bad as MNW.    ;)

Nice atheist rant. Christianity surely isn't for everyone. I don't understand those who say they were born Christian then turned Atheist. Who could possible be born Christian? That sort of ignorance is sure proof that you were never Christian in the first place. True Christian doctrine states things like "being born a sinner" and the need to be "born again" before being a true follower of God. Other than that, especially in regard to how you tried to tie this in with Bitcoin, I'm sure many of us would love some clarification. To know whether you were just babbling or really had a point. So please let us know when/if you figure out what point you had, someday, doesn't have to be today, take your time.

Nice atheist rant. Christianity surely isn't for everyone. I don't understand those who say they were born Christian then turned Atheist. Who could possible be born Christian? That sort of ignorance is sure proof that you were never Christian in the first place. True Christian doctrine states.....

Easy! For example: Catholic parents who get you Baptised as a baby and then try to "do the right thing" by bringing you up with Christian morals and values and all that. At least that's how I casually interpreted "born and raised". Then again, maybe he was covered in stigmata and the Blood of Christ when he came out of the womb? ;D


Horrible critical reading of my post or just ignorance of Christianity. Again, I quote myself,

You shouldn't argue with him. He has never read the bible and has no imagination at all (something usually mandatory for Christians to believe the bible). If he knew anything about being a Christian he would know that when I said "born" I was talking about being baptized. Life is so great when you aren't taking the crazy pills anymore. Give it a shot.

@ridgemont4: I know you're just trolling because you're bored, but if there is someone here actually preaching the bible as the word of god, please see http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html

http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/ is also a really good resource to those interested in de-washing their brains.

Good luck everyone and see you at the finish line!

I'm not a baptist nor do I believe in Baptism, nor did I grow up in a culture of baptists. So really you are the troll for thinking you know everything about everyone. Not everyone lived the same life as you, arrogant fool.

My belief why Jesus was baptized was to fulfill righteous by human standards so satan could not "accuse" him of not upholding the rituals. Smart move on the part of the Lord, who has much work to do for the Father, and rather than engage in a senseless debate over baptism that no one will understand, He simply obeyed their silly delusions. It's like how you treat disobedient children; let them have their way, which is why I really wish you losers would stop responding to me. I don't want to participate in this stupid conversation anymore, but it seems you won't be satisfied till I've said something worthy of your "ignore" list.

Church on Sunday always was dumb in my mind. If you follow God, you are keeping the commandment, to love Him and serve Him with all your strength. Why do fake Christians set aside Sunday? because people like you need something to mock at? Perhaps that's really it.

I have several responses:

1. I didn't say that only christians could bomb, they don't hold the exclusive right
2. I don't support the bombinb of Iraq either
3. Believe me I understand that it is everywhere....  People can claim they are christtians all over the place and it is OK, but if someone says anything along the lines of "Ya, me not so much" then they get chastized; "Y U NO BELIVE IN CHRIST?"  Disgusting

Lulz..... I must admit ridgemont.... I think you are changing my mind.... I might be starting to believe in god, I was bored this morning and the more I read your posts, the more I am not (bored).  I think god sent you to entertain me.

I just ran across this one, from another thread, that truly tells you are not afraid of talking about a subject when you obviously know nothing about it (not that we needed any proof).
The biggest threat to Bitcoin is its very own creator, who is so much of a coward, he must remain anonymous. For all we know, he could be a United States government insider, hired to create this as some sort of "one world government" experiment. In that case I better be careful, because that's a very powerful group who knows what they're doing. I might be followed by mysterious characters after this post and may end up missing soon.

OK... you may now resume your regularly scheduled trolling....

I find it to be utterly stupid. How can a good person do evil? Jesus actually addressed this head on.

Matthew 12:34 "You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks."

Matthew 7:16 "By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"

Deuteronomy 20:10-14

As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace.  If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor.  But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town.  When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town.  But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder.  You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.


Keep this in mind when the rapture comes.  Attack your neighbor and kill him, and take his wife to do with as you please.  The bible commands it.   ;)

How can a good person do evil?

The source of all your faith, the bible, commands you to do evil in certain circumstances.

Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God

Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him."  (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)


Of course, we are told not to take things literally.  A "town" probably means another house.  If you find your neighbor does not worship your god, you are commanded to burn his house to the ground.  Your house will become stronger from it.

To be fair, you started in this thread giving unsolicited opinions:
I have heard that one theory about the "666" relates to money. Apparently there was a Roman coin with the number on it. Because the Romans were hated by some at the time, the association with evil started.

Nice little theory. Unfortunately it's biased and not accurate at all just like most things atheists pull out of the air. However, you can and will believe whatever you want. and while you do that, revelations are being fulfilled.

An bothered person stays away? No, you're like an itch. I MUST SCRATCH. Plus, I can use the "devil makes me do it" excuse and God will forgive me. Meanwhile, you will rot in hell for all of eternity inevitably. And that sad thing is this is God's honest truth but you cannot even begin to understand me. Nor do I want you to. I just wish you wouldn't wake up tomorrow so I won't be bothered by this pathetic thread anymore. It's in my prayers.

Spoken like a true Christian; I don't want you to understand, just die.

Actually, History has shown with Christians it is understand OR die.


Meanwhile, you will rot in hell for all of eternity inevitably.

I know this isn't true.  If there was a god, why would he give me a brain and then expect me not to use it?   ???

Maybe it's just a hunch, or intuition let's call it, but who wants to be that ridgemont4 is nothing more than a clone of that asshole scammer newdude?

Looks like he has successfully started a thread that does nothing more than let him raise his post count. And as we know, that was the modus operandi of him and his followers. Most of what he is saying is contradicting other things that he is saying, FWIW.

What happens when an unstoppable troll hits an unmovable theist?

Can a theist make a claim about god so big that the theist himself could not believe it?

Will bitcoin ever go above $7 ever again?

Christian believers, you have a choice: either defend the story of this man's being killed by having an angry mob of barbarians pelt him with rocks as being the holy justice mandated by a fair and just god of perfect love,...
or join the rest of the world in rejecting any deity's involvement in the story as a piece of insane fiction dreamt up by savage people hoping to convince somebody that their barbaric cruelty was mandated by a holy and unquestionable moral authority. It wasn't: it was fucking sick, AND YOU KNOW IT.
The bible is bullshit. Look elsewhere for perfect love.

bullshit stories in the bible.
There is too much evidence proving the bible is a historical account of real events.
Noah's Ark: Found!
Red Sea Crossing: Found!
Mountain onto which God descended: Found!
Ark of the Covenant: Found!

Historical fact of the bible is not contested but dates are. For instance, when did Moses live? Current theory states 1400BC, but I can show hebraic worship of ShangDi in China going back to at least 2500BC.

Repent! :D

All that aside, what I personally found to be most true was Jesus' words.

I have no reason to doubt a single word in the Bible.

As for Noah's Ark, the evidence could easily have been discovered by one of the many empires to rule the middle east, and they could have had the evidence destroyed. I can see why they would want it destroyed much more than one of the many other human-idols in history. As for the Red Sea crossing, well. What evidence do you have to suggest it was not crossed? What evidence do you need? 1) the Red Sea exists. That's good evidence. It's a river.. how could you preserve artifacts indicating it happened? Personally it's just common sense. 1+1 = 2 in my world.

Lol

MICHAEL TOMS: I want to get back to the interpretation of myth, and especially relative to Christianity. What is your experience with people from the established religions? How do you convey to them that it is possible to look at the Bible from a symbolic point of view?

JOSEPH CAMPBELL: I taught a course at Sarah Lawrence College on comparative mythology for thirty-eight years. I taught young people of every available creed. More than fifty percent of my students from the New York area were Jewish; many were Christians – Protestant, Catholic; there were Mormons and Zoroastrians and Buddhists. There wasn’t much of a problem with the Buddhists, but all the others were somewhat stuck in their provincial traditions.

It was the simplest thing; all I did was to point out the parallels and identities all over the place. You see, when there is a motif – such as that of the virgin birth – which occurs in American Indian mythologies, in Greek mythology, and so on, it becomes obvious that the virgin birth could not have referred to a historical event. It’s a spiritual event that’s referred to – even in the Christian tradition. One after another, these motifs became spiritualized instead of historicized. And the interesting thing is that instead of the person losing her religion, she gained it. It became a religion instead of a misleading theory.

TOMS: How can a theologian in a seminary present a course in comparative religion and still hold fast to literal interpretations?

CAMPBELL: This is the most baffling mystery of my experience. Because I know, from associating with my colleagues, that a great many of these gentlemen become firm. "Ours is finally different. It’s a fact!"

TOMS: You mentioned the Flood. Like the Virgin Birth, it also is a motif that runs through all cultures.

CAMPBELL: Yes. There are very few cultures that don’t have a Flood motif. That’s a basic idea: the dissolution of the world which takes place every night when we go into the flood of our own unconscious. It’s the analogue of the mythological Flood: at the end of the cycle, there’s a flood. The American Indians have lots of Flood stories.

It was thought when the diggings in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley were proceeding that evidence of the Biblical flood could be located – at least a flood universal to that area. And there were flood levels found in several cities. But they were not the same flood level; they were local floods. There’s no cosmic flood; the Flood motif is a mythological idea. The whole notion that all originates from water, and all is going back to water, gives you a cycle: out of water, back to water, out of water, back to water; and each new cosmic aeon, each new world-age, is, as it were, a creation out of water and a dissolution into water. So it’s a mythological motif. This is exactly the point that Thomas Mann makes very well in the first part of Joseph and His Brothers: the archetypal Flood is a mythological, a psychological flood, and when local floods occur they become identified with it. Do you understand? We have experienced The Flood. The Flood is a mythological principle, and when a flood occurred, we understood the sense of the image.

TOMS: What does contemporary religion have to do with the adventure?

CAMPBELL: I think contemporary religion is in a very bad spot. And I think it is because it has taken the symbols as the referents. Religion is the constellation of metaphors, and the metaphor points to connotations that are of the spirit, not of history, as I said before. And in our religions, we’re accenting the historical image that carries the message, but we stay with the image.

TOMS: The literal interpretation, in other words...

CAMPBELL: Yes, and you lose these messages. The thing about Jesus is not that he died and was resurrected, but that his death and resurrection must tell us something about our own spirit.

TOMS: Why do you think we tend to a literal interpretation of Christ in myth?

CAMPBELL: I think it’s the result of a strong institutional emphasis in our religions in the West, and a fear of the mystical experience. In fact, the experience of the divine within you is regarded as blasphemy. I remember having given a lecture once on this problem of becoming transparent to transcendence, so that your life becomes a transparency through which light shines. I spoke of it as "the god in you, coming out through your life." A couple of months later, I met a young woman at another talk who had happened to be present at the first one; and she told me that when I had said "The Christ in you asks you to live," a priest sitting next to her had said, "That’s blasphemy!" So, in institutional religion, all the spirit is out there somewhere, not in you.

But what’s the meaning of the saying, "The kingdom of heaven is within you," if you can’t say, "It’s within me"? Then who’s in heaven?

TOMS: And, "I and the Father are one."

CAMPBELL: All of that. Jesus was crucified because he said, "I and the Father are one." Well, the ultimate mystical experience is of one’s identity with the divine power. That’s the sense of the Chandogya Upanishad saying which says "You are It." That divinity which you seek outside, and which you first become aware of because you recognize it outside, is actually your inmost being. Now, it’s not a nice thing to say, but it’s not good for institutions if people find that it’s all within themselves. So there may be some point there about our particular situation in the West where religious institutions have been able to dominate a society.


~~~

So here is one interpretation of what the number 666 means.  Ponder it if you dare.   ;D

"This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666." - Rev 13:18

6 is the number of man as a manifested physical being, the beast.  3 is the number of divinity, mans truest inner nature.
666 therefore is the human being in the fullest sense... the completed man... The Christ ( which literally means "the
anointed one" ).  

Those who have a negative view of human beings and the material world ( like the compilers of the bible, as we know it in its
present form....  having a negative view of the world of people and things because they themselves were/are no-doubt filled
with self-loathing ) see this as representing a man ( lowly beast ) trying to be like God... the anti-christ in other words.  

To the wise however it represents man's true divine nature which includes, but also goes beyond, the physical material realm
( which they don't regard as a bad place, nor do they consider natural functions, like sex, as bad either ).  

To suggest, as Joseph Campbell pointed out, that man's true nature is of divinity, is one of the greatest blasphemies in Christianity
and similar organized religions... I mean what need would people have for priests to control them and act as intermediaries
between them and God if God is already within them?  

It is the greatest blasphemy but it is also the message Jesus gave... it is what he represents ( whether he actually existed
historically or is a mythological figure ).  

According to gematria the name of Jesus in Hebrew = 666.  And Jesus, "Son of Man", represents not a Divine Being
separate from us that we must worship from afar, but a potential which exists right here and now in all of us.  

Amen
Om
and pass the kaneh bosum* ( the main ingredient of the holy anointing oil of Hebrew Kings )

 ;D


Don't believe any of this of course... but ignore it at your peril...  lol
at least I hope you were entertained.  


* kaneh bosum goes by different names today... "cannabis" for example...   ;)
That's right Jesus and the apostles and many of the prophets before them were pot heads!

i find believing in someone's existence or non-existence doesn't really matter for one's life and it certainly doesn't effect existence or non-existence of any particular subject.

your own assuming interpretation. i said IF

personally i don't care about religions, i think they're scam and pure BS but it is also none of my business what others choose to believe and follow

IMO religions came about from spiritual experience - they limited it for masses and monopolized it for their own gain of power and control and completely abolished true spiritual experience. some religions went as far as replacing spiritual experience with FEAR, killing millions innocent people who would question or disagree with their "teachings" in their crusades and witch hunts on a path of conquer and dominance race.

spiritual experience can be acquired or accessed in several ways: mind and body preparedness, starvation, consuming poisons or hallucinogenic plants. it is basically a hallucination which can't be described in words. speaking to yourself in your mind with Jesus/God/Devil/etc is far from real true spiritual experience, no religion would ever be interested in providing you with ability to be totally free and independent in life and in your thoughts for your own self improvement and spiritual growth and to give you link to connect your inner self with external world to feel you are part of nature and universe to feel that we all living beings are the same and share universal love. on a contrary i suspect your religion has driven you far far from it that my words probably don't even make any sense to you, but at least you are left with a feeling that you are true believer of something that is being totally disconnected from you and only thing left is faith and hate for others who do not share your own views.  

i personally think your own religion has done greater evil to humanity than their projected image of evil of the devil. only positive i can find is that it  has thought some basic discipline and culture to barbarian humans throughout centuries but it still came with forced fear, obedience and punishment.

Nine is the number of lucifer (fun true fact actually - multiples of 9 when you add the digits together always resolve back to 9, this means that 9 is a so-called "number with pride" and it is referred to as lucifer's number within occult circles)

This same phenomenon happened to me in 2008 right before 2009.. It continually showed up. I was not familiar with the Bible yet but I kept seeing that number every where and remember asking myself the same question. Although I leaned on the conclusion that it was simply standing out, after seeing it again and again in less likely circumstances, I began to re-question and have now concluded it to be more than coincidence.

Why is 6.66 so popular? I've seen it several times today at arbitrary and random times.
Am I just seeing it because it stands out or is and indication of an imminent apocalypse?
I can't decide.

This same phenomenon happened to me in 2008 right before 2009.. It continually showed up. I was not familiar with the Bible yet but I kept seeing that number every where and remember asking myself the same question. Although I leaned on the conclusion that it was simply standing out, after seeing it again and again in less likely circumstances, I began to re-question and have now concluded it to be more than coincidence.

This number "stand out" because it is an irreducible division in the set of rational numbers:

333/50 ∈ ℚ

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=6.66

The Egyptians used to solve this problem by fractioning the number:

333/50 = 6 + 1/2 + 1/7 + 1/59 + 1/5163 + 1/533079755

It's also the sum of the numbers 1+2+...+36. (if you ignore the decimal)

69 is a multiple of 23!   :o

( google for much more )


(  69 is also quite fun with the right girl   ;)  )


* excerpt from the 'Illuminatus! Trilogy - Eye in the Pyramid' by Robert Shea & Robert Anton Wilson:

...He was launching into a peroration about the mystic significance of the number 23— pointing out that 2 plus 3 equals 5, the pentad within which the Devil can be invoked "as for example in a pentacle or at the Pentagon building in Washington," while 2 divided by 3 equals 0.666, "the Number of The Beast, according to that freaked-out Revelation of Saint John the Mushroom-head," that 23 itself was present esoterically "because of its conspicuous exoteric absence" in the number series represented by the Wobbly Hall address, which was 2422 North Halsted—and that the dates of the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, November 22 and 24, also had a conspicuous 23 absent in between them—when he finally was shouted down, the conversation returned to a more mundane level.

Half in whimsy and half in despair, Joe decided to perform one of his chronic acts of faith and convince himself, at least for a while, that there was some kind of

meaning in Simon's ramblings. His equally chronic skepticism, he knew, would soon enough reassert itself.

"What the world calls sanity has led us to the present planetary crises," Simon had said, "and insanity is the only viable alternative." That was a paradox worth some kind of consideration.

"About that 23," Joe said, approaching Simon tentatively after the meeting broke up.

"It's everywhere," was the instant reply. "I just started to scratch the surface. All the great anarchists died on the 23rd day of some month or other—Sacco and Vanzetti on August 23, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow on May 23, Dutch on October 23—and Vince Coll was 23 years old when he was shot on 23rd Street—and even though John Dillinger died on the 22nd of July, if you look it up, like I did, in Toland's book, The Dillinger Days, you'll find he couldn't get away from the 23 Principle, because 23 other people died that night in Chicago, too, all from heat prostration. 'Nova heat moving in,' dig? And the world began on October 23, in 4004 B.C., according to Bishop Usher, and the Hungarian Revolution started on October 23, too, and Harpo Marx was born on November 23, and—"

There was more of it, much more, and Joe patiently listened to all of it, determined to continue his experiment in applied schizophrenia at least for this one evening. They retired to a nearby restaurant, the Seminary, on Fullerton Street, and Simon rambled on, over beers, proceeding to the mystic significance of the letter W—23rd in the alphabet—and its presence in the words "woman" and "womb" as well as in the shape of the feminine breasts and spread-eagled legs of the copulating female. He even found some mystic meaning in the W in Washington, but was strangely evasive about explicating this.

"So, you see," Simon was explaining when the restaurant was starting to close, "the whole key to liberation is magic. Anarchism remains tied to politics, and remains a form of death like all other politics, until it breaks free from the defined 'reality' of capitalist society and creates its own reality. A pig for President. Acid in the water supply. Fucking in the streets. Making the totally impossible become the eternally possible. Reality is thermoplastic, not thermosetting, you know: I mean you can reprogram it much more than people realize. The hex hoax—original sin, logical positivism, those restriction and constriction myths—all that's based on a thermosetting reality. Christ, man, there are limits, of course—nobody is nutty enough to deny that—but the limits are nowhere near as rigid as we've been taught to believe. It's much closer to the truth to say there are no practical limits at all and reality is whatever people decide to make it. But we've been on one restriction kick after another for a couple thousand years now, the world's longest head-trip, and it takes real negative entropy to shake up the foundations. This isn't shit; I've got a degree in mathematics, man."

"I studied engineering myself, a long time ago." Joe said. "I realize that part of what you say is true. . . ."

"It's all true. The land belongs to the landlords, right now, because of magic. People worship the deeds in the government offices, and they won't dare move onto a square of ground if one of the deeds says somebody else owns it. It's a head-trip, a kind of magic, and you need the opposite magic to lift the curse. You need shock elements to break up and disorganize the chains of command in the brain, the 'mind-forg'd manacles' that Blake wrote about. That's the unpredictable elements, dads: the erratic, the erotic, the Eristic. Tim Leary said it: 'People have to go out of their minds before they can come to their senses.' They can't feel and touch and smell the real earth, man, as long as the manacles in the cortex tell them it belongs to somebody else. If you don't want to call it magic, call it counter-conditioning, but the principle is the same. Breaking up the trip society laid on us and starting our own trip. Bringing back old realities that are supposed to be dead. Creating new realities. Astrology, demons, lifting poetry off of the written page into the acts of your daily life. Surrealism, dig? Antonin Artaud and Andre Breton put it in a nutshell in the First Surrealist Manifesto: 'total transformation of mind, and all that resembles it.' They knew all about the Illuminated Lodge, founded in Munich in 1923, and that it controlled Wall Street and Hitler and Stalin, through witchcraft. We gotta get into witchcraft ourselves to undo the hex they've cast on everybody's mind. All hail Discordia! Do you read me?"

When they finally parted, and Joe headed back for his hotel, the spell ended. I've been listening to a spaced-out acid-head all night, Joe thought in his cab headed south toward the Loop, and almost managing to believe him. If I keep on with this little experiment, I will believe him. And that's how insanity always begins: you find reality unbearable and start manufacturing a fantasy alternative. With an effort of will, he forced himself back into his usual framework; no matter how cruel reality was, Joe Malik would face it and would not follow the Yippies and Crazies in the joy ride to Cloud Cuckoo Land.

But when he arrived at his hotel door, and noticed for the first time that he had Room 23, he had to fight the impulse to call Simon on the phone and tell him about the latest invasion of surrealism into the real world.

And he lay awake in his bed for hours remembering 23s that had occurred in his own life . . . and wondering about the origin of that mysterious bit of 1929 slang, "23 Skidoo. ..."

;)




The "23 Enigma" is the Discordian belief that all events are connected to the number 23, given enough ingenuity on the part of the interpreter.

ridgemont!

I thought you were gone for good.

I guess that's what you and many will be saying when Jesus comes back too.

I think my actual response will be more along the lines of HOLLY SHIT IT'S JESUS! (or maybe that dude from zztop)

I'll be more fascinated with Jesus' response to YOU calling him shit. Hopefully it will end up with you being subjected to eternal hell fire per decision of the one true Holy Lord, Jesus Christ. Words cannot express how much I hope for this.
Ahh, Christianity. Love from a god who cares so much for us that if you don't love him back he will put you in hell forever.

You've been deceived. God does not love you, He only loves those who keep His commandments and that surely is not you or anyone who denies His existence. Only a sinner would be so blind as to not believe in God.

And you believe this because.... ?  I think pics or it didn't happen is apropos here.

Well... It is real:

Quote
A random number is a number chosen as if by chance from some specified distribution such that selection of a large set of these numbers reproduces the underlying distribution. Almost always, such numbers are also required to be independent, so that there are no correlations between successive numbers. Computer-generated random numbers are sometimes called pseudorandom numbers, while the term "random" is reserved for the output of unpredictable physical processes. When used without qualification, the word "random" usually means "random with a uniform distribution." Other distributions are of course possible. For example, the Box-Muller transformation allows pairs of uniform random numbers to be transformed to corresponding random numbers having a two-dimensional normal distribution.

I've prepared my spaceship, stack of supplies, and a few backups on the bitcoin block-chain, + some asics rigs, solar powered generators etc.

Cya all on Mars!

Well, lets look at it this way.  BTC isn't supposed to end until 2140, so maybe we should contribute to the fact that it is supporting a continuance of the world; at the very least it is giving 'us' time to set up our rigs and mine.  Good can and will be done during the next 130 years. 

I think the fact that BTC is projected to last another 100 or so years signifies that it isn't a sign of the end of times (global currency etc).  While it's very dangerous spiritual lines, it's fun to think about at the very least.
