    This guy feels like a zombie.

    Does this resonate with how you are feeling? If you are one of those that we call a "truther" than it probably will make sense to you.
    What this guy does not see, or at least he does not say, is that our hope is in Jesus Christ.

    We know that things are going to get bad, and that we should be preparing. But there is only so much you can prepare for, and then you must walk by faith, not by sight.

    We are seeing some clear signs that things are not improving in America. The only people who do not see it are those who do not want to look.

    It is interesting that he feels like a zombie. I think perhaps he is feeling the zombie-ness of those people who are asleep and refuse to wake up and see what is happening to America.

    You should be preparing for hard times and asking God for wisdom.

    It's a religious thing.....
    Some people feel they are only safe in their respective faiths and I understand that.
    Anyone that feels as if they are being "zombied", should consult their respective faiths and preachers, ministers, Rabbi's, or whomever......
    ( It's been said there are NO atheists in a foxhole, I believe it!)
    I also beleive that a lot more people will begin to "get faith" when times begin to get really bad!

    Well, I got to know a few people on the forum who are religious, and there are no problems -personal faith is a beautiful thing, no matter what a person wants to believe in. Spamming their religious beliefs across the internet is kind of retarded. It's not like they are selling a used car here. Might as well place all topics concerning religion in the damned "buy and sell" forum. It's religion. Unfortunately, it happens. One does not need to fertilize it and indoctrinate others; if it is your god's will, then won't it happen ANYWAY? Wouldn't it be vain to assume that YOU know better than some supreme being with a master plan? Does logic hurt your brain? I bet it does. :) Just kidding.

    Dragonfly, and some others here are wonderful people. Dude, you are wrong about the quote though. Be careful what philosophies you choose to follow. Atheists exist irregardless of foxholes. I know, I have been there. I have been shot, stabbed, and recently on yet another deathbed...nope, no God. Not in my world. I only have TWO people on my ignore list, and it was because these folks just can't leave their religion out of a single post that they make. Now, I am not HERE to discuss religion or to prove that it's all lies and mind control. I am not here to disprove the existence of a negative either. I am here to be at the survival monkey, not worship hour or bible study.

    Go to ANY search engine. Type in ANY term you want about 2012 and the government. I GUARANTEE you that you can find scores of right wing, leftist, centralist forums ALL DEDICATED to extremist religious ideologies. It's a smorgasbord of religious fanatics these days, folks! They are crawling out of the WOODWORK!! GAH!!! [lolol][booze]

    Chill.It's all good, yo.

    We have alot of new members lately , we try to tolerate the poison drinking, snake handling pentecostals and the atheists..Some of our most scholarly members(cadre) could very well teach seminary.. Minute man has much knowledge, faith and many books to write on this subject waiting inside, he has never once made us feel imposed upon by his Granite faith...
    IMHO When your Religious/anti-religious views are the main point of every post it becomes baiting and a "Baptist tent revival" and there are plenty of those out there. Not only is it not appreciated( for me anyway) it has the exact opposite effect of making the "less than religious(i.e. moi)" want to pickup a( the) book and read( Please "repent, flagellate, fellowship"; , whatever in the privacy of your homes but it doesn't come across well(and I think your scaring off the jewish feller). Know whut I mean verne?

    (Imho) Just me sayin'; that's all..

    I know "tepid christianity" is supposed to be a tremendous sin: "spew you out of my mouth" or something along those lines: I know it goes to "11"
    but if we could keep it at a respectful "6" or so that'd be ggggrrrreeeaaaaaaattt....

    Wow. sorry to offend you all. I thought we lived in America. Not forcing you to believe it...like Jihadists will do. but hey...to each his own? right?

    No real blood and guts offense taken:

    We certainly do live in America, I can't stop nor do I and want you or anyone to stop posting...
    Just something "you folks" never seem to get: Please take this as a teaching metaphor and not an insult:
    Say we all just moved in to the same neighborhood and ride the same bus to work everyday and meet at the morning bus stop: Monday morning it's "Hi My name is I'm Roger we moved into #1027 on the corner and I really like bananas"
    day2: "Morning Rog"
    "Hey I still really-really like bananas"
    day 3: hiya Roger:
    "Hi great day; Did I tell you I really like bananas and they are good for you too!"
    day4": yo rog:"
    Good morning we have a banana group meeting after work tonight you're invited we're doing fosters 1 through 27.
    friday"'Hi Roger"
    Hi Remember bananas are good for you! You should really really like bananas like I do; perhaps I can come by later this evening with my cookbook and show you how great bananas really are. We can sing the happy banana song. care for a banana creampie?"
    next monday "uh.. hello" ?
    piss off rog... and pick up all those damn peels...

    If this doesn't get me banned: No offense meant . but this is what its like. from my/our p.o.v. I've gone on business trips( tdy) with plenty of folks who want to convert me to a "banana lover( not that "broke back mtn" kind either)"

    as opposed to:
    Say Bill that Roger guy is really healthy he can run rings around me on thecourt , I see he brings alot of bananas to work everyday...(click) perhaps that has something to do with it?

    Right, then. We advocate and will protect free speech on this site. The thing to watch for is planting deliberately controversial subjects that are not really germain to our raison d'etre. All that sort of thing will do is create friction and drag us off point and into the mire of other boards. If you ask God (privately) for guidance and wisdom, and He sends you here, where's the gain in raising the issue? If you don't ask, and you find yourself here anyway, what's the point of saying you did it on your own? I know of a certainty, that we have Christians, Jews, agnostics, atheists and more than one muslim that hit this site regularly. (Suspicious of a couple Buddhists and a Sikh, but not certain yet, and don't need to know.) The point is you are here for prepping information, not debating religion or lack thereof. (Or for that matter, how soon the sky will fall or the dollar die.) If it is to be, it will be, and you will be ready or you won't.

    T3, your analogy is fine. Remember it for future reference/use --

    Well, to be fair, I did have my dog tags specially made since the Army will only permit "NORELPREF" if you do not choose one of their preferred club card accounts. I chose to have Ranger Joe's draw up "JEDI KNIGHT" as my favored religion. My Commander got a kick out of it.

    And holy granola Tango! Your two last posts on the previous page were the best posts EVER.

    I tried that when I went to basic and they asked me for a religious pref....
    I had none....
    The guy said ok, protestant!
    I asked what the heck is that?
    He said: Read it this way son.."Protest..Ant"
    So, I am a gubernmently tagged "protest-ant" ever since!
    I since have discovered a new one....I have heard of agnostics, so I re-worded it to read:
    I like that so much better!

    UGRev Get on with it!

    For the record: I am Catholic by association. I was raised Catholic but I don't go to church and I don't do all the churchy type stuffs. I'm rather "anti-church"; I'm barely involved at all save for the fact that my wife goes to church.

    Now, If you're suggesting that the OP's post is an attempt to convert you, then you're off your gourd. You know, when people visit forums, they "talk out loud".

    Now, I agree that the obvious bible thumping thread should get the hack, but I truly believe everyone has gone drama queen over this one.

    Remember.. those who are offended, often seek to be.

    For ugrev:

    I explicitly replied I was not really offended.
    For the record I too was born and raised catholic to a point...I am not suggesting OP post was to convert me. but I go to every watchman220 post and article link to his blog and hes telling us how he struggles with "bananas"how great "bananas are and I need bananas".

    You seem to agree; and you weren't exactly using church appropriate language in your response to brokor (typical)...I offered up my point of view in a gentle and I thought respectful, appropriate way.None of you can tell me I'm bonkers. I have a schizophrenic cousin, he like you, talks to invisible friends too.

    Everything I said was true,I guess you missed this part in the OP in BOLD:

    "You should be preparing for hard times and asking God for wisdom".
    You arrogant little turd.
    If you new guys want to get together on a bible thread I guess that's between you and the mods.

    Here's a classic example of why this topic is the death of many boards. I presented my viewpoint you called me bonkers. You called brokor a *** bedwetter...
    the only person I see flying off the handle and using provacative language is you "sir." Course I had to add the "turd part"as punctuation..because I still have a heart beat.

    Mods I suggest we lock this up until folks get time to assimilate into the flow of the well established monkey board. .[stirpot][shtf]
    Eitherway I'm outta this thread just gets me worked up....Thankyou and goodnight [peep][peep]

    Apologies to minuteman,ghrit, and the rest of the cadre who believe; I know you take your faith very seriously..Hopefully you can see my bananas analogy for what it is.(representing the highly charged intimate private relationship with a higher power, and not just a repitition of any common topic.)
