    I'm not surprised he would tweet stuff about Fox, they kind of have each other in their pockets. Unfortunately for Trump he tends to contradict his own staff, or even himself with his silly tweets. Often he seems to be mad that other media picks up all those foibles and of course show them, and so he just spirals down even more into the  rabbit hole. Anybody who has watched him trying to make a speech and allows himself to go off script he simply throws out a few " it's going to be great, so great" and basically says nothing. He should take the advice of his own staff and leave the tweeter account alone.   

    No.  He has millions of followers.  Tens of thousands of people check off that they like his tweets.  Why should he quit?  Because some liberal or dem doesn't like it.  He's too popular and too many followers on Twitter to quit.  It's his way of speaking to his base directly.

  2. Just looked at some of Donald Trump's Twitter postings.  Fascinating stuff. . He has been a member of Twitter since March 2009.

      He has 31.9 million followers.  His account has received 35,000 tweets, counting his tweets and responses I believe.  Anyone can tweet a response to his tweets.

    He made quite a few tweets on June 6.  He sometimes quotes or links in a Fox News item.  Great stuff.  Great that people can reply and read what others say.

    Take your pick. And of course this is just a sampling.


    A point was mentioned today.  According to the U.S. commentator,  Trump has the constitutional right to tweet like any other citizen.  You might not like his tweets because they might not be politically correct, but how much different are they than the tweets from the rest of the world on social media?  If he wants to tweet, he has that right.  Remember it is just a tweet.  I wouldn't put too much in it.  It's not an executive order.  Remember, the MSM criticized him for tweeting during the election campaign. but what happened when he continued.  It worked for him and he won the election.  Didn't seem to hurt him then.   He says the MSM hates that he can get the truth out.

    I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm going to guess it's because that's where they evolved, and it's surrounded by water. 

    Catch anything?

    Evolution has been de-bunked.

    No. The boat launch was too crowded with people launching boats (upper 20s today).

    Glad that's been settled.  

    I think we have been wandering quite far from the topic, Why Trust the Bible?

    I should have anticipated someone would come up with that. 

    No, evolution has been debunked by professionals like Philip Stott.

    I'm asking you.

    If Kangaroos hopped from Turkey to Australia, why didn't any stop and stay along the way?

    I don't know why there are animals in some parts of the world and not others.  Climate, vegetation, etc.??   You would have to ask someone who studies animals.  Gotta run.  Might go fishing now.

    Kangaroos are only found in Australia (naturally).

    Why not Turkey where the Ark supposedly landed?


    Maybe someone took some there after the flood.  There are aboriginal people in Australia, right?  How did they get there after the flood?

    "History" refers to events after the discovery of writing. "Prehistory" refers to events before writing.  Chinese history goes back a little over 4000 years.  The record of chinese "civilization" (agriculture, villages, etc.) goes back many thousands of years before that.

    Such claims may not be credible.  There has to be proof, not just claims.  If the flood happened between 4000 and 4500 years ago, then possibly some descendants dispersed to China after that, but where is the proof?

    They don't believe what you believe.

    I'm sure they don't care. China's durability and greatness, as it were, is self-evident.


    I'm just reading a new book, History of the World.  It goes back 2,000 years to talk about the history of China, but there is nothing mentioned three or four thousand years ago about China.  Nobody knows anything about a history that old for China.

  10. It's interesting the God scattered everyone at the tower of Babel (which I think was in modern day Iraq) and confounded their languages so they couldn't speak the same language.  They scattered to different corners of the earth and spoke different languages.

    While Hebrews were trying to figure out fire, the Chinese were well on their way to destroying their first Dynasty. 


    I don't believe the claims that they go back 6,000 years.  They are descendents of Adam and Eve as well as everyone on earth.

    Correct. In fact, don't Creationist insist that the Earth is the centre of the Universe?

    I don't have details on that.  I believe Prof Stott believes the earth is the centre.  It's called geocentricity.  I don't necessarily believe that.  That is only a theory I think.  Possibly only a small number of people believe that.  I don't really know the arguments in favour of it.

    So I'll ask again, since the flood option is off the table (unless it was a magic flood) do you think modern human bones and other remnants (tools, paintings, etc.) older than 6000 years were hidden there by God?

    Personally I don't think there were human bones and tools etc older than 6000 years in existence.  Some of those so-called pre-historic men were found to be fake.  Such as the so-called Piltdown man.   What some paleontologist have apparently done is find a tooth or such and from that draw a jaw, then the rest of the skull and create a pre-historic man.  Then later people found out the tooth was actually from an ape.  That sort of thing.

    Incest is unavoidable in either case.

    I just looked it up.  It says in Genesis ch7 vs1 "And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark"   

    So who knows how many people were in his house.  Could have been a number of couples (sons, daughters and their spouses)
