  1. They do not produce seeds because companies want you to keep buying seeds from them. Otherwise they do not make enough money to survive. I never thought about how they do that but I guess that is gmo too. The use of hormones and antibiotics in raising animals is a big concern. To me, it is bigger than gmo concerns.
  2. Let me use corn as an example. For awhile folks were upset over gmo corn. And given how it affects the monarch butterflies, perhaps it is right to be concerned over it. However the original corn was a tiny thing. In my archaeology days, we used to excavate old corn cobs that are hundreds of years old. Even those were not the original size. Over time the seeds were selected to grow larger and larger ears. That may not be what folks think of as "genetically modified", but it was still changed from the original genetic material.
  3. Everything is genetically modified these days. The vegies and fruits you eat were long since genetically modified in some way. Even if it was just seeds grown from plants that exhibited a particular desirable trait, it was modified. If you wear cotton, chances are it was grown from btcotton, a variety that has botulism toxin coded into it to protect it from boll weevils. Something that has been done for 40 yrs or so. If you use insulin, it is likely to be humulin, a genetic mix of human and e coli material. There are genetic repairs for various diseases that encode a proper gene on to a virus and inset it into people. That repairs a gene and cures a genetic illness in some folks. None of that is playing God. But if it bothers you, then you do not have to use any of it.
  4. It crossed my mind that it might have been deliberate. A total of 875 of France's 42,258 churches were vandalized in 2018, with a small fire set to the Saint-Sulpice church in Paris in March, according to French police. https://www.ibtimes.com/notre-dame-cathedral-fire-not-arson-875-french-churches-vandalized-2018-2785886
  5. Ladypeartree, they are given a court date which they often never showup for (they just disappear into the us). In fact, I read this week that they illegally get in, then surrender to border patrol, knowing that once they do that and get their court date, they can just disappear in the us. They have achieved their goal. They do quite fine when they are released. I live in an area with a very high population of illegals. They are not destitute or without resources. Our homeless veterans do not have the immense resources that the illegals have available But the invasion is taking a heavy toll on america. For instance, hospitals near the border have closed because they were not paid for health care of illegals but had to treat them anyway. Leaving citizens without hospitals in their communities.

  7. A post so its seen in chat, and make herlow happy
  8. Ive read that it started with the attic renovations. I am hoping it was not deliberate.
  9. I feel loss over it. From an art, architectural, and historical perspective it is a great loss. Last I heard no one was hurt and that is good news. As far as religion goes, pfft, one can worship anywhere. One doesnt need that building to worship the Lord. Although since its catholic, one wonders how many are true believers who worship there.
  10. A piece of history and architectural wonder is ablaze. The photos are horrible. No mention of any one being hurt or killed. Also no sign of anyone even attempting to fight the fire. Decades ago, I visited the cathedral. Somewhere there is a photo of me next to one of its famous gargoyles.
  11. You never know. My husband witnessed to many folks 30 plus years ago. When he encountered them again in recent years, they told him they got saved. Seeds he planted took years, but indeed took root in some.
  12. Praying. I am currently going through this myself. I have already done chemo, radiation, and surgery. I am still undergoing immunotherapy infusions. If you ever wish to chat about it or need a supportive ear feel free to contact me.
  13. In my opinion, a Christian should not do yoga, not even the so called Christian yoga. It has its origins in eastern mysticism and is meant to .... The original context of yoga was spiritual development practices to train the body and mind to self observe and become aware of their own nature. The purposes of yoga were to cultivate discernment, awareness, self-regulation and higher consciousness in the individual. So how can a Christian participate in this?
  14. There but for the grace of God go I.... I could have remained lost in unbelief. We were all lost at one point. We should be praying for them and witnessing to them.
  15. Look at stephen as he was killed. He saw our Lord. It doesnt mean we wont suffer. Only that He will see us through it as He did the others in the bible. The way to escape is to keep our eyes on Him
