    Yes, it is a popular lie.

    President Trump

    Polls can be manipulated to reflect any outcome you want depending on who you ask and how you phrase the question. The polls had Hillary winning by a massive landslide.
  4. You have provided not one "one iota" of proof for your assertions, just random expressions that are meaningless. If you were a lawyer in a court of law, the judge would dismiss your randomness as worthless, for without sound evidence, they would be dismissed as "non grata". Anyone can condemn, but only those who provide sound evidence will be accepted. You quickly condemn with no conclusive evidence that proves your argument as valid (such as paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould [1941-2002] and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins [1941 to present] also has). The Bible establishes what happens when this occurs: "When a wise man enters into controversy with a fool, there will be ranting and ridicule, but no satisfaction".(Prov 29:9) The word "kind" has already been established as accurately expressed by God through his "secretary" Moses with the Hebrew word miyn. Whether you accept this is your decision, but this does not change the facts. And it must be established that there is a wide difference between "fact" (meaning "truth or reality of something"; actual course of events"), such as that life only comes from life and "theory" (meaning "speculation, hypothetical circumstances") such as the evolution. Wrongly, the word "kind" has repeatedly been supplanted with "species", but the two words are far from being the same. Although the basic meaning of "species" according to dictionaries is "organisms in species, kind or sort, subdivision of a genus" (Encarta Dictionary), the Bible's use of the Hebrew word miyn as "kind" embraces an animal or plant whereby the DNA blueprint cannot be crossed so that a new animal or plant is created. It can likened to a wall that cannot be climbed over. Humans of different nationalities or races can mate and produce another human or baby, with characteristics from both parents being found within the child, blended together. Humans and animals can also mate (called bestiality and condemned in the Bible, whereby the offender was put to death, Lev 18:23; 20:15, 16), but nothing will happen. When one considers all the factors needed for life that exists on the earth, the odds are unimaginable for life to be an accident, such as the spontaneous formation of a single DNA molecule, in which over three decades ago Dr. Frank Salisbury of Utah State University, U.S.A., calculated the odds of the spontaneous formation of a basic DNA molecule essential for the appearance of life. He assumed that this molecule had the opportunity to develop by natural chemical reactions on 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1020) “hospitable” planets over a period of four billion years. What are the chances that a single DNA molecule formed? By his estimate, one in 10 followed by 415 zeroes ! Mutations are abnormal, out of the range of how DNA works. Damaging or altering the DNA genome (which can likened to a recipe or program that directs the formation, growth, maintenance, and reproduction of all our cells) through radiation or otherwise does not create new life, but rather brings that which does not function as effectively, if at all. Evolutionists (accepting what Charles Darwin espoused, who believed that all life came from a single "tree of life" and that the cell was very rudimentary, not extremely complex as has been found) says that after life arose, that over perhaps billions of years that it divided up into the many different facets of animals and that humans were among these, along with plants as well as microbes. But the facts do not concur with this. And at the heart of this are proteins, for they are the "basic building blocks of life". Without proteins, no life exists. But lets get to the "core" of the issue, of what are the odds of a single protein coming into existence at random. And it need be grasped that a protein is worthless unless it is folded into the exact three-dimensional shape needed within a living cell or else it fails. Some 20 years ago, with the best computers available at the time, scientists used them to determine the odds of a single 100 amino acid protein coming into existence and then randomly folding itself precisely for it to function within a living cell. It was found that a protein made up of just 100 amino acids and solving the complex folding problem of it into the exact three dimensional shape necessary for its precise role in a cell, by random (or as some would say by evolution) means, would require 10 followed by 27 zeroes or a billion billion billion years to complete.(New York Times, March 25, 1997) This is far, far longer than the estimated age of the universe at 13.8 billion years. And this is for only one protein. But each living cell of a human and animal life has an estimated one billion proteins in order to function properly for life to exist.(source - U.S. National Center for Biotechnology Information) So, where does this place evolution ? In the "hot seat". And this does not account for organization, for everything we see, from the smallest microbe to the largest star is precisely organized. Tell me, how long would it take for a messy kitchen to become perfectly organized without a mind, so all the utensils are back in their proper location and clean ? Or how long would it take for a new car to come into existence by itself without a mind ? Even a rudimentary toothpick requires complex machinery to be created. Thus, is it not well established that organization only comes from an organized mind, not chance. So, the Bible stands tall with regard that life only comes from life and that "kinds" cannot be crossed because of mutations or by other means.

    President Trump

    I would but since it's clear that there's at least a hint of strong Trump support here, and I already mentioned I was done (granted with that specific poster at the time, but frankly at this point I am tired of it). If the people asking it are a 100% Trump backers the only thing I'll be met with is "fake news", so it seems like a waste of time. When you're convinced literally all contrary sources of of info are part of a grand global conspiracy reasoning is impossible. So again, with respect I am done, no ill will meant. It's just "fans" aren't conducive to good debates, and frankly I don't feel a strong need to defend Obama because I didn't vote for him (the first or second time either) At the time he came around I certainly could have,but I was totally new to politics and didn't want to make a rash decision as I take these things quite seriously. I think suspending critical thought just because a team flies your colors is responsible for a lot of the issues with the world now to be honest.

    As others have pointed out...David was an adulterer, murderer etc yet a man after God’s heart after he repented of his wrongs. Do you know Trump’s heart after he repented? If God forgives who are we to with hold forgiveness. You are bringing up his past...judge him for his work as president. BTW he was being forthright in telling Europe they neede to pay up...or do you want to pay the whole bill for defending them?

    Did you say that with a straight face? Is it somehow "a popular lie from the Liberal media" that his business empire is profiting from his presidency?

    President Trump

    Usually a candidate with good moral character aligns with the same issues that concern Christians such as being against abortion and supporting the Biblical definition of marriage for example. In the past most Republican presidential candidates not only held the same position on these issues, but they also had what appeared to be strong moral values, so it didn't become a problem until 2016. Trump may have claimed to support the same positions as I do on many of the issues, but he also had a reputation of being a liar, a man who betrayed not one, but three wives, and broke oaths to God when he promised to love and to cherish two of his previous wives until death, so how could I trust him to be honest with me and to our country? Add in the bigotry, pettiness, impulsiveness, misogyny, obsession with wealth, pride in self, and the lack of empathy that Trump displays, and there was no way I could support or vote for him despite his position on the issues we may have agreed on. When I read the Bible, in both the Old and the New Testaments obedience is a top priority for believers. Jesus is my Lord and Savior, so following His commands and teachings are of upmost importance in my walk with Him. I could not put my personal witness in jeopardy by voting for a candidate who lives a life that is so out of tune with the teachings of Jesus and the Bible. When I vote for a candidate they are to represent me and what I stand for, so the candidate I support in a public office in turn becomes a direct reflection of me and my values. Yes, Trump may have supported some of the same issues as myself, but his personal character directly contradicts that of a follower of Christ; therefore, I had to choose which is most important; the issues of the world, or how it would appear to the world if I voted for a candidate who also claims to be a believer, yet lives a blatantly sinful and disobedient worldly life. For me the choice to not support Trump was a very easy one to make.

    President Trump

    What has he done that is so morally egregious since coming to office and turning his life over to Jesus (as many evangelical ministers attest)? What so offends you? And makes you say he is not honourable or measure up to your view as a Christian?

    President Trump

    So to sum it all up "them darn leftists (Europe), Trump too has shown signs of corruption throughout his life and contradicts himself every 24 hours but that's ok he's just the leader of the free world not nearly as important as the FBI (remember character judgements and assumptions only apply to those NOT on our team, not our team itself). Oh and a point I haven't even hit on yet, his choices.....oh man I have never SEEN so many firing and resignations by hand picked staffers before. That indicates a poor judge of character, and that is not a good thing when you're working with the world stage. Also Trump tougher than on Russian than anyone else......look if you're that far in his camp we can't have a discussion. I won't be rude about it, I respect all Christians and in the end, as long as we're turning to God and doing our part in his plan that is ultimately all that matters. From a Biblical standpoint our fall is coming anyway, and be it a president flying the red or blue flag it had to happen at some point as has been told. So I'll bow out with you here. Have a good day, and may God bless you.

    President Trump

    I presented those items in response to your claim that all he basically has going for him is the economy. No, only some radical, leftist anti-America protestors are flying anti-Trump balloons. And those protestors don't speak for everyone in Europe. If you saw the weirdos that were protesting, you would see just how meaningless and unimportant their protesting was. No, that is not according to him. We know a lot more than we used to know and it is pretty clear that the higher levels of the FBI, CIA and NSA are pretty corrupt. He is not being "investigated." It's more of a case of, "here's a man, now go find a crime and make him guilty of it." Trump is not trusting Putin. Most of the crap the media is putting out is nothing more than conjecture. They don't know what was said in the meeting and they are basically making stuff up. They have evidence of nothing they are claiming; not ONE scintilla of evidence. No, Trump has been very hard on Putin, much harder than previous presidents. https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/03/12_ways_trump_is_a_nightmare_for_putin.html That is not true. Trump is wanting to de-nuke NK. You don't accomplish that by manhandling them. If they show cooperation, you reward it, that is how you move forward. You don't accomplish anything by insulting the leader of NK and embarrassing him in public. You want him to de-nuke. That's a good thing. That's how you deal with people like him. He has to save face in that culture and if Trump comes in like wrecking ball, it will only drive NK to further their nuke program and threaten us and the world. That was purely conditional. If he reneges and returns to ramping up the nukes, that deal is off. The plans and exact details have not been published; but that doesn't mean they don't exist. You are not really privy to all of the information and it might be a good for you to reminded that there is a lot that is going on behind the scenes that we are not being told and for good reason. It's been in the news that testimony from various leaders in the intelligence community has been contradictory. Just the other day, we discovered that the testimony of Lisa Page totally contracts the testimony of Strzrok. In fact, it appears that she through him under the bus. Comey's testimony has been found to be self-contradictory and James Clapper is already known to have lied under oath. Trump's claims they "wire tapped" his campaign has been vindicated. And when you have someone like Comey who outlines 111 felony counts committed by Hillary and then fails to recommend charges be filed, that is a massive example of corruption. There is no evidence currently that anything like that is going to happen. Maybe that is just wishful thinking on your part, but nothing more.

  20. I should have said the people i was referring to were citizens. the government people in these videos seemed to not give a hoot about anything they had to say. I thought the attitude from the government people in the videos in san fran were very callous. Seemed to only be listening to them because they had to and couldnt wait to get back to business as usual.
  21. Mozart's Starling

    President Trump

    Look we can all list bullet points of every president (I'll google one for Obama if you like, though I suspect it will be met with "fake news" as is typical with his "fans". Doesn't change the fact that Europe is flying anti Trump Baloons, and the FBI corruption thing is ACCORDING TO HIM which you might know.....uhhhhh he's being investigated by them. He might have an interest in you believing that. Also, again, trusting Putin is stupid stupid stupid. Can't sugarcoat it. And I am sorry to say the following; even if Trump is totally innocent of all Russian accusations, he's still a dream for Putin. Ever heard the term "useful idiot"? Trump has already showed with NK that if you even give a HINT of cooperation he'll roll over. Cancelling military exercises based off a flimsey (I have read the agreement, it is incredibly vague and has no real plans or way to reinforce) agreement is bonkers. No nice way to put it. Oh and back to the FBI being corrupt, you can't state an opinion like it is a fact. It's a common theme with certain supporters to take Trump talking points, state them as reality, and when you ask for proof half the time you get a link from a conspiracy site or a referral back to Trump's words. You'll have to do more than repeat what Trump has said, you'll have to use things he disdains like "facts". Also I did edit my post earlier on the judges part, that is all well and good but uh.....you could say that of any Republican. Not some drastic change. I'll be frank with you, I think the end times a comin and ole Trump is doing what he can to undermine America abroad (not necessarilly intentionally, I have no idea what is going through his head), while throwing some meat to his base domestically. Remember it is Israel and its people that are the chosen. Nothing Biblically brings up America being the last one standing, though almost a Christians I have met assume it as if Jesus himself stated in back in the day. Btw no Trump is not the Antichrist and SEVERAL Presidents have contributed (blues and reds alike, I am not a republican hater at all, I liked Romney, I was ok with Bush till the whole needless war thing, liked McCain as well and I did NOT vote for Obama) to the downfall of America. Right now I am viewing things as one would the fall of Rome. But considering we are quite the power, our fall probably means Jesus will be coming soon, and frankly I welcome it. Tired of the whole thing really and I am quite young. World is an evil place.

  24. Revelation Man

    The context of 1 Thess 5:1

    The Seven Heads are Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome and the Anti-Christ/Little Horn. These Heads are Beasts over Israel. Thus Israel being as Dead Men's Bones for 2000 years from Jesus to 1948, we had no Heads/Beasts over Israel, the Last Head was still alive but it suffered a Mortal Wound, via Israel being dispersed and/or the Church being in Christ being undefeatable. When we are Rapture, then and only then can the Beast can back. Rev. 12 = 7 Crowns because Satan is over EVERY WORLD KINGDOM, and these 7 are Kingdoms that BEASTED over Israel, there are 1000's of Kingdoms not mentioned here. Rev. 13 = 10 Crowns on the Horns because the Anti-Christ is over the 10 Kings. Rev. 17 has NO CROWNS because Apollyon is not nor ever will be over Satan. Hes BUNCHED TOGETHER with the 7, thus he is OF THE SEVEN, but is an 8th. Meaning hes a "King" of sorts in a physical realm, but he is not physical, BUT..........since Apollyon is spiritual, he has to be Crowned only in that realm, and Satan hold all the Aces there. So he HAS NO CROWNS because he is over nothing, Satan is over all the Kingdoms of the Earth via the Spiritual Realm, the Anti-Christ/Little Horn is over the 10 Kings/Horns in the PHYSICAL REALM.

    President Trump

    He is not trashing our allies. He is demanding they start pulling their own weight in NATO. He is tired of the US paying $650,000 out of $900,000 bill while the allies just skate by on relatively little. Trump doesn't like to pay out and get nothing in return.  Yeah, a corrupt intelligence community that has been discovered to be weaponizing law enforcement and conspiring with the previous administration to frame Donald Trump for the DNC and its crimes of collusion with Russia. Trump has, in the past, stated that Russia meddled. He has denied any collusion  That is still in process No, that is not the only good thing. You should pay better attention to what Trump as done. ) He got conservative judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. 2) The stock market is at an all-time high. 3) Consumer confidence is at an all-time high. 4) He created more than a million jobs by undoing Obama’s regulations. 5) Mortgage applications for new homes is at a 7 year high. 6) Unemployment rate is at a 16 year low. 7) Signed the promoting women in entrepreneurship act. 8 Gutted 800 Obama era regulations thus freeing up companies to hire again and get the economy moving once again. 9) Ended the war on coal and caused a new mine for coal mining to open that will mine clean coal. He also put the miners back to work. 10) Weakened Dodd-Frank regulations. 11) Promotes buying and hiring American. 12) Investments from major businesses such as Foxconn, Ford ,Toyota, Intel amd others will build here now. 13) Reduced illegal immigration by over 70%. 14) Bids for the border wall are underway. 15) He’s fighting back against sanctuary cities. 16) Changed the rules of engagement against ISIS. 17) Drafted a plan to defeat ISIS. 18) Worked to reduce the cost of the F-35 fighter jets. 19) Imposed a five year lobbying plan. 20) Sanctioned Iran over its’ missile program. 21) Responded to Syria’s use of chemical weapons. 22) Reduced tax reform plan. 23) He’s renegotiating NAFTA. 24) He withdrew from the Trans Pacific Partnership thus keeping jobs here. 25) He pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accords thus saving us millions of dollars every year. 26) Created a task force to reduce crime. 27) The DOJ is targeting dangerous gangs like MS-13. 28) Signed independence and economic growth law. 29) Signed an executive order to protect police officers and target drug cartels. 30) Signed an executive order for religious freedom. 31) His administration is working on sending education back to the states. 32) He’s fixing the dept. of Veterans affairs so now vets can choose their own doctors and be covered.
