What happened to "Sunday School"?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Richard E. Robertson May 19, 2013. 2 Replies

I followed it -ahem - "religiously". It used to show up in my inbox automatically then I had to go seeking it out. Did the author just run out of things to discuss?Continue

"@Angela Evangelia you said a specific set of words meant to evoke a specific image for the reader. You didn't just "say some words". You said a very specific set of words with a definite intent. If someone speaks of a "green…"

"You painted a very graphic and sexual image of a young girl and an adult man. @Unseen didn't even come close to advocating such. What he HAS discussed and originally brought up is the boundaries of a young girl (14 years old in his example…"

"It makes its validity as a true statement questionable and as our culture matures it becomes even more so. It's a sexist stereotype - put it to rest. And simple prenatal care does not satisfy me. A young, first time, mother needs all the…"

"No, it's not that they lack a sense of other's motives. Humans at very young ages (except in the case of conditions like autism) rapidly become adept at sensing the motives of others - it's how they develop necessary social skills.…"

"The original purpose of the sex offender registries was to aid in investigation of new sex offenses and not to prevent them. No evidence exists that they have an inhibitory effect. In fact the state law enforcement officer who first proposed the…"

I have accepted your friend request. Nice to know you.

Yes you read right. How are you

At 3:33am on August 11, 2012, archaeopteryx said…

So are you getting the emails, or not - I just had another one returned.

At 2:41am on August 11, 2012, archaeopteryx said…

Odd - you know I've already emailed you and had no problems. Just now, I responded to your last two emails, regarding your graphics, and the email was returned, reason: illegal attachments. The attachments, doubtless, are the decorations on my email, and were there the first time I successfully emailed you. Can't imagine why.

My standing?! I'm the class clown, and along the way, once in a great while, I say something serious, but I try to keep that to a minimum. I find a spoonful of humor helps the medicine go down.

And in that vein, allow me to invite you to visit my site, http://www.in-His-own-image.com - it's written for today's young ADD generation, so expect some nonsense, but again, spoonful of humor --

(Also, it doesn't matter how profound your dialogue if your audience is asleep!_

It's written like a book, which is best read from the beginning, so open any page, scroll to the bottom, and click on the button marked, "First," which will take you there; from that point, the rest is self-explanatory.

Chapter 1, "gods 'r' us," simply provides a brief glimpse at a plethora of gods that Man had believed to be real throughout his history, so feel free to thumb through those, read any that interest you, and bypass the rest - except the last page, which brings the reader to Mesopotamia, which is crucial for any understanding of the Bible - I would urge you to read that before proceeding.

If you'll give me your URL again, I'll be glad - as time permits - to proof it for you and email you the results. I can be reached at archaeopteryx@in-His-own-image.com.

At 2:55pm on August 10, 2012, archaeopteryx said…

Got the reminder Richard, but you said you had a question?

At 2:14pm on August 10, 2012, archaeopteryx said…

This is fine Richard, unless your blog automatically notifies comenters of a new comment. You might also want to reprint my comment to refresh my memory - I comment a lot in a number of places.

Are you trying to create a domain name or site for yourself?

Ha,ha - you have got to be joking :) I don't know how many times someone tries to put my name in their computer - invalid - whatever....

At 4:36am on August 7, 2012, Suzanne Olson-Hyde said…

I had to choose a URL, don't have one, so I asked my 'computer expert' and he said "I had to join' etc., so went back and couldn't find anything to join. Sorry for getting snippy. Programmers, generally, and I am with one, don't see the wood for the trees, and to a non-computer user like myself, it is very frustrating not to be able to go to a site, and work my way around it. So, if this was in Beta mode, does one have to join, or have a URL, or whatever else was on the drop down list?

The hyphen bit was in my name - windows computers often do not compute hyphens, so if the blog is produced on a windows machine,or a windows programme, it just may not take hyphens.

At 1:44am on August 7, 2012, Suzanne Olson-Hyde said…

Thank you Richard - I just thought I was missing something. My name is hyphenated, and it wouldn't accept it - a common with Windows.
