People have been saying the dollar collapse is coming for decades now. It will happen eventually, but nobody will know until after it's all said and done.

You're reversing the causal arrow. The addiction leads to the loss of the job and destruction of the social network around them that they could use to fall back on during a hard period of illness or accident or injury before getting back on their feet. The addiction becomes the driving concern of their lives, not being productive.

That is exactly my problem...makes a believable tale that you skeptically listen too...then he debunks it halfway through. If he knows it's fake up front, just say so up front.

The poor will always be with us. Most people realize that the disabled and similar unfortunates will need assistance. It doesn't necessarily have to come from the government, but "the wagon" includes private charity.

I don't think it's company, it's some dude on Youtube. The Why Files website is something else.

I don't like how, for instance, he knows something is a fake, but the first half is "this happened" then the pause, and then the "but...."

If you know shit is fake up front, just say it.

Meh, everyone should pay and have skin in the game. A 10% flat rate on your income, or a 10% sales tax. More people are in the wagon than pulling the wagon.

Nah, you know what you are, but can't say. This "conversation" is done, at least on my end.

You really are a bot, aren't you. Well played.

What does Jeffery Epstein have to do with DNA? Nothing, except he like to spread his into the bodies of underage children.

Gnosticism is a believe in some sort of mystery knowledge revealed to insiders, knowledge with salvific power...in a way the Gnostics, and you, are like the Freemasons and Kabala Jews, and many others, in that regard.

I certainly see that religion is a way to control people, as much as removing Christianity's influence from the public sphere is equally a way to control people. If you can't see that, that's on you I guess.

Doubling down then, but this time adding a dash of gnosticism. Oh, do go on....

"... according to a premonition I had..."

Anyway, the idea that like some Old Testament patriarch the New World Order will allow you to rural homestead your way through the coming dystopia is hopeful at best.

Your response to a simple fact about historical research, about the availability of primary and secondary sources, is to say that is ALL historical research are the result of interpretations and historical records are unreliable?

Because of your inability to come to terms with some accepted facts, you're going all post modernist and saying it's all socially constructed. Interesting rejoinder to say the least. Entirely unproductive and ineffective as an argument, but sadly, hardly unique.

Do you have anything useful to write, besides the empirical equivalent of "if I didn't see it, then it didn't happen"?

Tacitus had access to records you don't now, but he did, in the time he lived, including people who were alive at the time Jesus was. You know diddly about historical research.

If your point is that the Platonic Form of Jesus, let's call it, is different from what's in the record, then you're not getting any disagreement from me.

And people have been questioning the historical record of Jesus since the Jews murdered him, and this mostly stems from Jewish influence.

You forgot Tacitus mentioning Jesus.

And of course you're going to have modern experts in dispute about something like the dating of the certain Bible writings in dispute, when the accepted date for a couple millennia would make for some uncomfortable conclusions to some of those experts.

I made another thread about Julian the Apostate. Put your silly snark about that over there.

Sure it is.

Is or isn't, doesn't matter. It's what people expect Jesus to look like, in the Middle Ages or now.

And yes, it was written about that early.

And the Roman emperor pissed at the Jews who destroyed the temple didn't care about some, what was to him, some obscure cult.

You should look up what happened when Julian the Apostate tried to rebuild the Temple as a way to negate a central aspect of the faith. Jews all across the empire poured money into the project, and the Romans, well they know how to build stuff that lasts thousands of years.

The result? Shit out of the Old Testament, like an earthquake, a storm, and a plague....the result, was that it never got anywhere.
