I'm thinking maybe what Tangle was referring to was that there is only the book. There is no independent confirmation that any of the myths (or characters, outside historical name-dropping) ever existed as presented.

But there is not even only the book; there are a whole host of different Canons each creating and authorizing a different "Bible™" with totally different content. The smallest Christian "Bible™" has only 5 books and NONE of the New Testament while the largest has over 80.

Just as with the God each Chapter of Club Christian and each Jesus of Club Christian markets it is whatever that body of humans has created.

Re: 62 Years Old Today--September 19th
As usual you post a meaningless spiel repeating dogma and failing yet again to point out anywhere what I posted is not factual, true and correct.

While I and others post facts you seem to only reply the you refuse to believe reality.

And so once again:

Care to address reality rather than simply regurgitate the dogma of your chosen cults?

Re: 62 Years Old Today--September 19th
And neither Phat or anyone else has EVER explained how it might be possible or how to even determine if you are actually communing with God.

And he NEVER, EVER even tries to answer those questions.

And so yet again all Phat can provide is the fact that he cannot or will not address what others post.

You may have learned how to win arguments through attrition but you know less than you think you do about reality.

Then provide the reality based evidence, model, method, process or procedure that will let any determine that they are actually and factually communing with God.

Im not talking about God. There is no way to "prove" Him.

Nonsense Phat. What questions did I raise in the very post to which you replied?

Phat writes:

I'm talking about my predictions for global finance and how you ********** mock them.

That is because the predictions you post are ********, dishonest and simply like all apologetics designed to con the people who have never learned how to think.

No one here doubts we are facing financial problems bu the biggest issue is folk like you who do not learn the basics or history or economics or reality and instead rely on snake oil salesmen and con artists.

Do you understand that if the debt ceiling is NOT raised the result will be that the dollar IMMEDIATELY becomes worthless for any international transactions.

Your grocery store will but be able to restock any product that is not fully sourced in the USofA; fully sourced from the initial raw materials to the labor to the processing to the packaging to the delivery.

Can you list the products your store sells that would meet those conditions?

Phat the problem is not the amount of debt the US holds; it is that the US population has never been taught how to think.

And yet, the debt will get paid.

It's up you folk like you to decide whether you prefer to pay the debt by changing behavior or by starvation and violence.

Re: Production Backs The Dollar
Actually it is "The full faith and confidence in the Government" Phat.

The dollar has value internationally ONLY as long as other nations have faith and confidence in the US Government.

What might be a method that faith and confidence might be measured?

Re: Production Backs The Dollar
Two people go into a back to get a loan.

One get the loan and one does not.

With which of the two does the bank have the greater confidence?

testing kits including lancets (needles)
Just to clear up yet another pontification from Feste.

Of course pre-diabetics are prescribed testing kits and lancets; I generally get two packs of 100 test strips and 212 lancets each time.

Currently I test once in the morning before eating anything or even taking morning meds. The meter records daily, and 7-14-30-90 days moving averages. Blood is taken and lab tests run at the Dr's office three times annually.

Both absolute highs or lows as well as all of the moving averages are relevant.

Remember that Feste is "an allowed nincompoop", but unfortunately not a harlequin.

Feste really needs to be Harlequin!
Those of us who are pre-diabetic yet not naïve and vacuous keep track of our A1c moving averages and so change and modify our behavior, our diets and and our lifestyles so that we do not progress into full blown diabetes by sin of commission or omission.
