    And God Said "let there be arguments".

    Wow.

    I remember this very old story of another shepherd. He was humble, respectful and honored God. He avoided temptations and fought against the harlots. Neither was he a warrior, but he also dared to challenge the biggest, baddest, warrior, at the time named Pontius Pilot. In the end, a friend sold him out, another denied he existed, he was cursed at, spit upon, beaten, left with no friends and then crucified. Then he was stabbed in the side with a spear too bleed to death.

    I think the story is true because Jesus was a prophet and they are all well versed in moutboxing:

    Maybe I'll even schedule a vacation for a meet. I want to see how tough the guys with 20,000 posts really are. Do I get to fight them without gloves or rules? I can do without gouging eyes and crushing balls. Most of my best techs are barred in MMA. If they are too slow, do I get in trouble, or have to pay medical bills for a broken wrist? Can I wrench their arm out of the shoulder, then choke them with their own arm? Can I kick knees and hammer fist kidneys, till they piss blood? Can I push or pull or strike their nose away from their head until I'm so splattered with blood, I have to buy a new pair of shoes, or do we fight barefoot, so I only need to bring a few sets of shirts and sweats.
    Yeah, did your parents or religion teach you to talk shit like this as well?

    Nope the above is the only "tough guy" act in the thread.

    Wasn't that one a carpenter?

    He avoided temptations and fought against the harlots.
    He did? Fought them? Punched them or something? Who was Mary Magdalene?

    Neither was he a warrior, but he also dared to challenge the biggest, baddest, warrior, at the time named Pontius Pilot.
    Umm...wasn't Pilate trying to avoid the whole mess? Don't recall hearing of the christians' 'messiah' actually challenging him to anything.

    Not trying to derail...it's just that I'm not too savvy on middle-eastern religions, but I do tend to run into a lot of folks who buy into them, so I'd best be straight on their myths. The bringing-down-the-big-Palestinian-with-a-rock one, I've heard. Kind of hard to buy...but these tales aren't supposed to be literally true. At least, I hope they aren't.

    Not trolling, but this ^ can be trollshidoed anyway.

      Ahhh I do like that people that use the most sarcasm, fail to pick it up. Yes, I know.

      John 10:1-21 Specifically 14.
      http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...21&version=NIV

      “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."

      He did? Fought them? Punched them or something?
      Matthew 21:12-13 I can get more if you need them. Now, if I need to get definitions to point out fought can be physical, verbal or mental you let me know.

      Judge at Jesus trial, Prefect and ordered the death of Jesus.

      Yet here you sit, asking literal questions, claiming not to troll. yes, we both know you are trolling.

          That one I'm not so sceptical about personally.

          David would have been proficient with the use of the sling from early childhood. Using it daily to hunt. Practicing constantly. It is possible to become a crack shot with one, especially among people who depend on it to live.

          I wouldn't put it beyond the realm of possibility to TKO somebody with one. Ol Davey did saunter over and cut the giants head off. If the stone didn't kill the man outright the decapitation certainly did.

            You're a meanie....but if you do string my guitar, make sure to coil it to the inside, of the tuning peg. Otherwise we do battle...and as you know, that would waste almost exactly 4 seconds of your day :]

              It's not that simple. O is nice enough, but blunt, which is endearing. I've sparred/grappled him, and he schooled me in a way that I didn't get injured. Someone who wasn't nice, would have fucked me up, because I'm a slightly annoying hyperactive simpleton who happens to be good wielding music, and little else.

              On this site, lots of people have showed up with book length meandering posts. Finding a site this incomparably awesome has some posters writing essays (I've written a few myself, including when I arrived and got flamed to a decent degree).

              Check out other threads, especially in YMAS (the comedy section where this was moved to). There's so much good material to read, and comment on here. This thread is one of many shitheaps. There's so much to speak on, this isn't important in the scale of things.

              That's the important thing to take away from this, b/c you will never have the last word. Too many posters are trying to entertain themselves, it just won't happen.

              Anyway, on with thread.

                Holy shit I cannot believe I just spent the last 1/2 an hour reading this car crash of a thread.

                Jesus my marriage really is on the rocks.

                  ...and the big guy wouldn't be just as proficient with rocks, having grown up in the same environment?

                  Proficient...with even bigger rocks?

                    I am far more skeptical about the significance of the story then the story itself

                      It's likely just another example of "yay-our-team". No biggie.

                      Still not clear on the Pontius Pilate reference. Decades ago, in a school far, far away, we were taught that he was reluctant to have jc executed, and only allowed it to placate a mob of zealots and highly-offended rabbis or whatever they called themselves back then. As I recall, there was even an offer from Pilate to free him and execute someone else (Barabbas), but the local taliban and their merry crew wanted jc dead.

                      The bit about fighting harlots makes more sense, though. Never could buy into the accuracy of the peaceful-hippy sounding "let-he-who-is-without-sin-cast-the-first-stone" tale. If there's one thing about middle-eastern cult leaders, they're consistent--and going apeshit with jihad-rage, about things they don't agree with, is indeed their well-established norm.

                        Does sarcasm and a plagiarized story bother you that much? DO you really need it explained?

                          I have a hard time believing a roman prefect would give a damn what the people wanted. Unfortunately no Roman court records have surfaced.

                            There are about 5 versions of Pilate outside of "organized religion." The two that are most debated:
                            The spoon fed bible stuff that doesn't reconcile with VM's upbringing.
                            The inferred plagiarized "Goliath" version I used.

                              I have to admit I am a bit out of my depth not being raised a Christian
                              I am aware of Josephus and Tacitus as well as the Pilate Stone.
                              I would think we should see more records given the levels of literacy amongst the Romans and Jews.
