I'm no historian so it's quite an opportunity to have access to someone who is.
I've always understood there's a severe lack of any mention of Jesus in anything we have from the time he was…"
"I lost track of what this is all about some time back & it's way beyond the limits of what I know but what the hell.
I'm not sure whether a thing can exist or not matters, what does count is whether it has any use or value to us. An…"
"Science doesn't deal with the supernatural, ie imaginary, world of god, pixies etc., only the natural. If science can be applied then it's no longer supernatural. If it were possible to travel back in time with an Uzi and a projector or…"
"That would be one place to start, though you appear to be spoilt for choice.

"Yes, Caine, you're a very clever boy. Lucky for us there's one person able to see the truth where everybody else has failed. Now off you go and play someone who'll appreciate you.

"Now I can say from personal experience after a very spooky encounter in the Himalayas that I'm in the yes camp for the Yeti. Then again, it's completely reasonable to have an open mind about a creature that science has not yet…"

Always distrust an eager new friend who wants to communicate privately. It's most assuredly a scam. Brother Richard filters out 50 scammers for every one who gets through, but we get them regularly anyway. One thing to do is see if other members are getting identical messages. You can look under members. If several people are getting that message, it's time to report it - "Report an Issue" all the way at the very bottom of the page.
