  1. Funny how threads like this go through cycles - it was months since anyone posted prior to my first post of this recent round, and now even Pastor Markle has posted this time........ What is OLB coming to?
  2. Sorry gotta pull you up on this one. The Bible says: Gen 6:4 (4) There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Notice that there were giants in the earth in those days; and ALSO AFTER THAT, when..... The Giants were not the offspring of "the sons of God" and the "daughters of men", but were pre-existing that event. Those offspring became "Mighty men", "Men of renown", but there is no mention of them being giants. As to Giants: 1Sa 17:4 (4) And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. In 1 Sam, 2 Sam, 1 Chron. Goliath and his brothers are referred to as sons of the giant. A Giant is certainly referred to in the Bible as a large man, but not as anything more than a large man. Six cubits and a span is roughly ten feel tall, which is far taller than the average man today, but it is not far off what has been seen in modern times. Robert Waldo was just shy of nine feet tall. (around 1940) Look at Yao Ming, the Chinese basketballer standing next to Shaquille O'niell and tell me taht he is only 7'6" as stated - Shaq is 7'2" (I think) and is waaaaaay shorted than Yao Ming, Giant in the Bible never means "Jack and the beanstalk" giant.
  3. Now, I fully expect you to be rude to me, and I don't care, but I am not the only one who questioned your meaning with these posts, so unless you are accusing several others here of being ignorant, maybe you should back off a little and take some advice - such as EXPLAINING YOURSELF CLEARLY instead of posting random verses and expecting everyone else to know what you are referring to. My first post here asked you to do just that, but instead of responding properly you showed no respect and answered with a jibe. Then you accuse me and others here of ignorance....... You really are arrogant.........
  4. Ohhhhhhhhhh - I knew I should have made the text smaller so no one would see it, but noooooo would I listen? No, of course not - old stubborn britches here wouldn't listen to good sense would he???????? And look what happens.......
  5. I wonder if I can sneak one in and declare myself the winner?
  6. He keeps telling us that he is not a Calvinist, but he often sounds like one. He also keeps telling us that he is not a replacement theologist, but he often sounds like one. If only he would explain himself properly the first time, then we wouldn't mistake him..............
  7. Yep - linky please.... I will have to find the browser then - should be no problem. I will give it a go and see what happens - will be good to have the little box running again if I can make it happen. My oldest son has played more with Linux than I have, and I think he can probably help if I get stuck. We have run a few Linux versions from USB before so I have an idea, but any help would be great. Thanks, Dave.
  8. Hey NoNics, is there any chance of getting your "portable OS" sent through? I have an old netbook which we tried loading a couple of Ubuntu versions onto, because the Windows it came with (XP) bloated to the point that it is basically so slow it is impossible to use. It has 1 or 2 Gb of Ram - it has sat shut up for so long I can't remember..... If I could get it running just as a browsing machine, that would be great. But if I remember correctly, one of the problems we had was finding a graphics driver - it is a Dell mini 10, and apparently it was available with a Linux option when new (I got it from a friend second hand), but we could only get it to display occasionally - most of the time it would only show the top half of the screen.........
  9. Yep, but we are still in reality limited to Win or Mac if you want a switch on and use machine. The only other options are Linux and Android, and as you say Android is still relatively undeveloped - and it takes more than average computer skills to load it up. From what I can see, Android is more difficult to set up initially, but then is reasonable once it is set up, while Linux is easier at the start, but you have to play whenever you want to add anything. But Android also has a lot of stuff that is Phone/Tablet focused, and is a bit clunky on PC........ Still comes back to being trapped into either Win or Mac for the majority As far as security is concerned, I wonder how something designed to attack a phone or tablet would go in a PC environment?. And most of the "security software" companies offer Android cover now anyway - but can we trust them? I wonder how much of the virus and malware stuff is actually leaked into the net by them to promote business? Or do I need to find a tinfoil hat about now??
  10. Hey Orval, that is one of the reasons I don't use Apple mac stuff - because they basically lock you in to getting everything through them. They control their users by it. As Microsoft head further that way I will likely migrate to something else, but choices are limited: the something else has to be either linux or a ported version of Android, but they both take tech knowledge at the moment.......
  11. You are often not "clear" and often complain that you are misunderstood - so how about you make it clear and state PRECISELY what you mean by quoting that verse? And while you are at it, how about you explain PRECISELY what you are referring to with the two new verses, rather than letting us speculate and then complaining that you are wrongly accused? I know what the verses say - what you use them for is anybodies guess, going on your past use of scripture.
  12. Mind explaining why you think that is relevant?
  13. I have been quietly chuckling to myself over this for the simple reason that the whole point of PDF files is to provide a"universal format" that anyone can read no matter the operating system, and as such it SHOULD just work no matter where it was produced or where it is being read. PDF stands for "Portable Document File"(or something pretty close to that). But the ACTUAL thing that makes me chuckle is that your hesitation and testing is necessary, because you just never know............ So much for the theory!
