Post Re: What, In God's Name?
In my book I openly challenge any human being to argue or disagree with my unprecedented theories. That will never happen because the facts speak for themselves. The only people who argue or disagree with my theories are those who have not read my book; after that they go quiet. Science tells us: The appendix is a narrow finger shaped tube branching off from the large intestine. The appendix has no known function. It contains a large amount of lymphoid tissue which provides a defence against local infections. The scriptures tell us nothing about the human appendix tube. I'm not satisfied with that. Any human being would agree that being blessed by God is a good thing, but if we read Genesis carefully, as I have, we can see that every life blessed by God inherits everlasting death; mortality. No human being on this planet has ever, or will ever, witness an ostrich burying its head in the sand. Ninety percent of what we know about the universe has been discovered by people staring through a telescope from their bedroom window. I'm not interested in peers or credentials or titles; it's all pretentious nonsense. If it doesn't make sense then it's not true. With respect, if you want to comment on the details of my book, at least have the courtesy to read it.

Fair enough. I'm not commenting on your book, per se, but more on your starting assumptions—an inerrant Bible and that Adam and Eve were real people, etc. And your apparent desire to make things up to go along with those beliefs. Your statement about our lack of a 24th chromosome is pure nonsense. But good luck to you. We know that ostriches don't really bury their heads in the sand because they wouldn't be able to breathe. But from observation and using our ability to reason, we can surmise how such myths get started.

"Rethinking" a possible bygone usefulness of the appendix is not evidence that it had specific function.


You get the subtlety of that point, right, Interbane?

I'll add PDF back as an accepted extension so that you can upload for your book here. I forget why we disabled PDF's. There must have been some sort of security issue with them.

OK, as requested PDF's are now permitted again as attachments. In addition to PDF's we're now allowing doc, docx, and rtf attachments.

Oh dear. That sounds perilously close to "I believe it, therefore it is true." It also suggests a hermetic imperviousness to counter-arguments.

Oh dear, that sounds perilously close to hypocrisy. My book 'IS' sixty pages of counter argument.

 Re: What, In God's Name?
OK so do you want to make the book free as you stated in another thread? According to the BookTalk site owner above, you can post a .pdf file right to this thread now.

We can set up a special thread to discuss it. At 60 pages, shouldn't be a huge undertaking - how many readers will we have?

Post Re: What, In God's Name?
I feel as if I'm getting somewhere now. At the moment it's on Amazon at a price. I'm reliably informed that the pdf can be converted to video for YouTube hosting, so I'm looking into that at the moment. I'm certainly open and grateful for any 'how to' hints on making free to read on this site. I'm no tech wizard. Dragging my pdf into one of these boxes is the best idea I've got. I expect my book to reach a minimum of 3 billion readers to begin with. Free, borrowed, begged, bought, I don't care as long as it's read. I've said it before and I'll say it again... the world needs this book, especially humans with killing in their heart.

Post Re: What, In God's Name?
It's so simple, it's almost laughable. Adam was the human genome of 48 chromosomes (24 pairs). Eve and Adam contaminated themselves and destroyed the 24th chromosome. They became the human genome of 46 chromosomes (23 pairs). Let us not forget that God took a human rib of flesh, blood and bone before contamination; the uncontaminated human genome of 48 chromosomes. The 24th human chromosome provides everlasting life. Jesus was born as the uncontaminated human genome of 48 chromosomes to show us an everlasting human; living and breathing; right here on Earth... at the age of 30, he could age no more.

What killed the 24th human chromosome? The first two humans to ever eat mammal flesh killed the 24th human chromosome. Who were the first two humans to ever eat mammal flesh? Adam and Eve; their reproductive cells contained 23 chromosomes, instead of 24.

The truth behind the 24th chromosome isn't found by telling a children's story. Just because you can rationalize it into a neat package doesn't mean it's true.

 Re: What, In God's Name?
Michael,
It is now very easy to attach a .pdf file to a post on this site.

  1. Before typing anything click on "Full editor" below the text box, next to the "Submit" button.
  2. Type your message in the text box as usual, perhaps something like "My awesome free book is attached to this post, soon to be read by over 3 Billion humans!"
  3. Now scroll down a little below the text box and find the section titled "Upload attachment." Find the "browse" button and notice "No file selected" next to it.
  4. Click on the browse button and go to your .pdf file. Click on your file, then click on the "open" button.
  5. Notice your file name now shows up next to the "browse" button where it previously listed "No file selected."
  6. Click on the "Add the file" button just below and slightly to the right of that. This actually uploads/connects your file to the post.
  7. Click the "Submit" button as usual when posting and you're done.

As an example I attached a .pdf file to this post called "Prove A Negative.pdf" about a common logic problem.
GOOD LUCK! If you still have difficulty, PM me and perhaps I can help or do it for you...
