Caught in a freezing gale, Captain A.E. White was unable to do anything but watch as the icy waters of Lake Superior claimed the schooner Nelson, which was under his tow en route to the Keweenaw Peninsula. "Before we were aware of her danger, she began sinking," White, captain of the steamer A. Folsom, told a newspaper reporter in May 1899. "In a few minutes, she dove to the bottom." "The crew did not even have time to lower their yawl boat. Not a bit of wreckage was left to mark the spot," White said. "The Nelson disappeared as suddenly as one could snuff a candle." On Aug. 26, the first person in more than a century clapped eyes on the Nelson, which sat undisturbed on the bottom of Lake Superior since the day its captain watched his family and entire crew perish. read more

In 1979, Houghton Mifflin paid $37,254 to purchase Mein Kampf's publishing rights back from the U.S. government. Cabinetreports that "over the next two decades, with sales of approximately fifteen thousand copies per year, the best estimate is that Houghton Mifflin realized profits of somewhere between $300,000 and $700,000 on its 1979 investment of $37,254. With the publication in October 2000 of a U.S. News and World Reportstory detailing the history of its publication of Mein Kampf, however, Houghton Mifflin announced that it would donate all of its accrued Mein Kampfprofits to charity."

The United States, which is suing Standard & Poor's for $5 billion for allegedly issuing inflated credit ratings before the 2008 crash, said Monday it is confident that documents the rating agency wants for its defense will not show that the lawsuit was filed in retaliation for a downgrade of the country's debt. In a filing with the U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, California, the Department of Justice said S&P's "general suspicions" do not justify the rating agency's request for the release of dozens of unredacted documents, including materials from former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. read more

Operators of two Taco Bells in upper Manhattan thought "outside the bun" by counterfeiting money and forcing underage workers to give fake $20 bills to customers as change, a lawsuit alleges. Annette Cirino is filing a class-action lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on behalf of her 17-year-old daughter, alleging the teen reported the allegations to cops after being "manipulated" into distributing funny money while working behind the counter at both restaurants. Her attorney described the fake cash as "terrible" copies slightly smaller than real $20 bills, adding they were likely produced on a laser-jet printer then run through a dryer to make them appear used.

The NT negates the OT it doesn't fulfill anything. The OT laws are discarded--not fulfilled.

Wrong again Bob.

1) "For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:18-19 RSV) Clearly the Old Testament is to be abided by until the end of human existence itself. None other then Jesus said so.

2) All of the vicious Old Testament laws will be binding forever. "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid." (Luke 16:17 NAB)

3) Jesus strongly approves of the law and the prophets. He hasn't the slightest objection to the cruelties of the Old Testament. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place." (Matthew 5:17 NAB)

3b) "All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness..." (2 Timothy 3:16 NAB)

3c) "Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God." (2 Peter 20-21 NAB)

4) Jesus criticizes the Jews for not killing their disobedient children according to Old Testament law. Mark.7:9-13 "Whoever curses father or mother shall die" (Mark 7:10 NAB)

5) Jesus is criticized by the Pharisees for not washing his hands before eating. He defends himself by attacking them for not killing disobedient children according to the commandment: "He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death." (Matthew 15:4-7)

6) Jesus has a punishment even worse than his father concerning adultery: God said the act of adultery was punishable by death. Jesus says looking with lust is the same thing and you should gouge your eye out, better a part, than the whole. The punishment under Jesus is an eternity in Hell. (Matthew 5:27)

7) Peter says that all slaves should "be subject to masters with all fear," to the bad and cruel as well as the "good and gentle." This is merely an echo of the same slavery commands in the Old Testament. 1 Peter 2:18

8) "Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law" (John7:19) and"For the law was given by Moses,..." (John 1:17).

9) "...the scripture cannot be broken." --Jesus Christ, John 10:35


Amazing that a sheep herder could nail SOULFLY to the wall 3000 years before his/her existence.

So you do support sexism? That's some harsh words for the ladies in your "good book".

Are you free of a wife? Then do not look for a wife. If you marry, however, you do not sin, nor does an unmarried woman sin if she marries; but such people will experience affliction in their earthly life, and I would like to spare you that. (1 Corinthians 7:27-28 NAB)

"If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her." Deuteronomy 22:28-29

Give no woman power over you to trample upon your dignity. (Sirach 9:2 NAB)

So ROB you cut your balls off for Christ, yet?

For there are eunuchs, that were so born from their mother's womb: and there are eunuchs, that were made eunuchs by men: and there are eunuchs, that made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. (Matthew 19:12 ASV)

If you have maybe you shouldn't have done that.

No one whose --------- have been crushed or whose ----- has been cut off may be admitted into the community of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 23:2 NAB)

Back to being mean to women.

If two Israelite men are fighting and the wife of one tries to rescue her husband by grabbing the --------- of the other man, her hand must be cut off without pity. (Deuteronomy 25:11-12 NLT)

I can believe you believe these myths? Going to say the OT doesn't matter since Jesus arrived. You know that's not true

"...the scripture cannot be broken." --Jesus Christ, John 10:35
