Re: Christian Apologetics and Israel

You are right in that Russia is behind this. It has been prophesied and is now happening.
No. It hasn’t.

Biblical References:
Ezekiel 38:1-39:16,Daniel 11:40-45 NKJV
Ezekiel 38 is rather unclear about who it means. Daniel 11 is not. The “King of the North” in verse 40 is Antiochus IV Epiphanes.
Daniel 11:2-4 sets the scene and tells us that the chapter is about the Kingdoms created from the division of Alexander’s Empire. Russia is not one of them (and did not exist until much later). There’s really no excuse for ignoring that.

Re: World War III is Nearly Inevitable
I’d be more worried about Taiwan. The Chinese are NOT happy about the outcome of the election there.

Re: World War III is Nearly Inevitable
Ukraine and Gaza are separate wars. A World War would be a single war. I don’t think that Russia would want to get involved in the Middle East right now. They have their hands full in Ukraine.

Re: World War III is Nearly Inevitable
Doing your own research is fine if you are prepared to - and able to - critically evaluate your sources. People who can’t or won’t (remembering a former member) should be prepared to make serious mistakes.
(Wikipedia is usually fine, good enough for casual use, but certainly not 100% reliable. YouTube is a carrier not a source. There are reliable sources on YouTube - but there are a lot that aren’t and video is far worse than text for conveying facts).

Tangle has it right. You’re just looking for excuses to justify your beliefs. I gave good advice. If you won’t follow it, the consequences are on your head.

Re: I saw a Lex Friedman interview of Netanyahu a few weeks ago.
quote:
See pp. 102-104.
Only page 103 deals with “Is the Holocaust a myth
quote:
Also, if you do the math yourself, you will notice that over 20% of Democrats under 45 will outright say they agree the Holocaust is a "myth". I suspect that only 50% will say NO.
Then I guess I’d better check the math.
quote:
There are 525 poll respondents under 45, and of the total number of people who say "Yes" (104) to THE HE HOLOCAUST IS A MYTH, only 14 of the nearly 1000 over-45 group say "Yes".
There are 513 respondents to that question under 45 - 207 18-29 year olds and 306 in the 30-44 bracket.
23% of the 18-29 group agree (48) and only 9% of the 30-44 (28)
That is 76. 32 of the over 45 group agree. Not 14. So a total of 108, not 104.
quote:
Democrats have 52 total respondents (out of 515 Democrats of all age groups) who say - outright - the Holocaust is a myth.

Assuming half of the 14 over-45 ALL AMERICAN group who says "Yes", "I agree", are Democrats, then:

Then 45 of the outright anti-Semites in the party are under 45.
Except that the number of 45-and-over who say yes is 32, not 14, so the correct number would be 36 (52-16), not 45.
If the 205 figure is correct that would be 18%
