  2. yes thank you tried all your suggestions the phone number is no person just message service and Kevin who has emailed me said they would send it never got it still just wandering anyone else have this issue? plus another thing. OHIO sent in to get my minister license and showed my minister certificate and they wouldn't give it to me. In part what do we need to show them of our ordained status?
  3. I bought a degree paper for my office and paid over $26 on april 6 2021 and contacted Kevin and you 100 times please give me my degree respond anyone else have trouble with them sending your orders? or store always in maintenance
  4. First up, A Tradecraft Primer: Structured Analytic Techniques for Improving Intelligence Analysis. Detailed look at individual stuctured analytical techniques (SAT)covering when to use, value added, methods and an example. (Would bet this is written by RAND.) https://www.cia.gov/static/955180a45afe3f5013772c313b16face/Tradecraft-Primer-apr09.pdf Second, Restructuring Structured Analytic Techniques in Intelligence. There's a couple of useful tables in this paper pairing SAT with the bias it addresses. https://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=804875

  6. I had two concerns when I wrote the section on Communism. 1. The cultural impact on America. To distinguish America from the "Godless Commies" during the Eisenhower Administration in the 1950's. The Insertion of Under God into the Pledge of Allegiance. Changing the National Motto into One Nation Under God. Now it's all over the money and various police vehicles. These are outlandish power grabs by the forces of Theocracy. Rubbing salt into the wounds, we have the various court rulings that this has nothing to do with religion. That these are expressions of
  7. That said the Tsar before the revolution was also a butcher who kept the country in poverty and at a pointless losing war with Germany and on it's other border Japan. We all know how he had the people killed in Red Square. Well that was not the only time he sent the troops in to murder whole groups of people. However he was Royalty and a Christian so we never talk about this.
  8. Jonathan said:- Without Christianity, Islam would have taken over the world. Without Islam, Christianity would have taken over the world. Christian vs. Christian holy wars are the stuff of legend. Muslim vs. Muslim holy wars are the stuff of legend. Jewish infighting is also the stuff of legend. Too much to drag out now. The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is the hottest of hot spots. Good luck cooling that down. _----------------------------++------------------------ I would argue with Judaism, paganism and possibly Hinduism Christianity would not o
  9. Do you even know what an oxymorn is? The classic example is "military intelligence". I have come to view Christianity as a virus of the mind. Yes, much like Herpes, Christianity will be with us for a long, long time. I promised myself that I was done arguing with you. Yet, here I am.
  10. "Nothing to do with bigotry" -- said the Christian bigot.
  11. Atheist and all can have compassion and moral values, but they are based on nothing but what they think, which means that their morals can fluctuate on a whim. Believers have a solid foundation of unchanging morals based in a Truth that eludes nonbelievers. That's the difference.. It has nothing to do with bigotry, but simple biblical absolutes. Your all searching for answers from a fictional Star Trek episode while simultaneously suggesting that Christians are delusional Its been 2000 years since Christ brought the truth and it hasn't burnt out yet,
  12. So true. When Faith and Belief are all that matter, Critical thinking isn't even a speed bump.
  13. Over the years, I have gotten into many arguments with the deeply religious. In hindsight I can see that they were useless and futile. I have put out nothing. To the contrary. I think I have enflamed passions. I did so by providing opposition. Christians love opposition. It feeds their persecution fantasies. Standing up for Christ and all that good crap. There is another way to put out a fire. Wait. Just wait. In time, it will run out of fuel and burn itself out. In the Gospels, Christians have the Great Commission. Orders from the risen Christ to "spread th
  14. Oops. I put the closing line in the wrong place. Too late to fix it.
  15. I have to respond to both of you in a two parter. "Religion" is such a broad brush. Too broad. I think we all know what we mean by Monotheism: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Without Christianity, Islam would have taken over the world. Without Islam, Christianity would have taken over the world. Christian vs. Christian holy wars are the stuff of legend. Muslim vs. Muslim holy wars are the stuff of legend. Jewish infighting is also the stuff of legend. Too much to drag out now. The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is the hottest of hot
  16. Unfortunately there are a lot of ignorant people who seem to lack the ability of logical thinking (either by lack of intelligence or by consistent brainwashing) providing enough oxygen and fuel to keep the temperatures high and the flames going...
  17. There are three ways to stop a fire. 1/ deprive it of oxygen. 2/ deprive it of fuel. 3/ lower its temperature. Debating highlights the nonsense the religion is founded upon. Even if they are persistent in quoting dogma, the ridiculous nature and lack of foundation of the religion shows through. I guess that is why you have given so many posts to the topic and interesting they are. I note there is no response back to challenge your logic. If they did it again would show up the ridiculousness of having a faith with no logical foundation. Hence you put the fire out.
  18. It's amazing how the tax codes and other laws seem to favor the wealthy. Almost as though there were a causal relationship. The UBI could actually happen. Capitalism needs customers who can pay for stuff. The UBI could replace much of the social safety net. It would cost less and be easier to administer. Something has to give. I never thought I would see cashier jobs vanishing.
  19. Or... we start taxing assets/profits more (instead of work) and introduce 'universal basic income' ASAP... PS. and I am not "looking for a job" myself, nor afraid of being unemployed or without income myself...
  20. There are many who seem to be the wise and calming voice of reason. Who insist that the new tech will create more jobs than it destroys. The thing is -- how many of these people are themselves looking for a job? We are rushing head on into an unemployment disaster. If you wanted a career oriented major in school -- what course of study would you even pick? Remember. Jobs that require people to do them -- but not a physical presence -- are going to get outsourced. Repetitive jobs of all types will be automated. No matter how we dice it, the future is in a lot of tr
  21. This topic is under review by the staff. It may currently be locked or open, depending upon why it is being reviewed. (Pls note that we don't have any information whatsoever about who this is, what they ordered, etc. as the name, email address and other registry information doesn't match what we would need to have to do a lookup in the order system or know what the issue is.)
  22. Thing to note is that the forum is a user to user medium. I don’t think the *store* monitors it at all. We are all volunteers here. Best to try the number in the previous post.
  23. Hi, I'm just a member but I did point out your post using the report option to Administration. Might try that yourself. I haven't had much reason to contact the church but it does take them a few days to respond to an email YMMV. They do have a phone number but I never had reason to use it: +1 209-852-6562. Automated system ... ? Hope you can get this resolved.
  24. Okay totally disrespectful taking peoples money and not giving them their order or even responding you are supposed to be kind and spiritual in the divine sense, I want my order asap I bought it april 6 2021 for my training and degree master in divinity NOW
