What Ernst opinion about Marco Polo?
>>
No. 30621
Hes a spook.
He had too many spook markers on him aka lucky coincidences.The only other even more famous venetian jew is Napoleon ofcourse.
I guess Marco Polo stories was a project to popularize/increase international maritime trading which Columbus was the biggest proper kickstart of them all.
Since Polo was a jew i guess we can indirectly see their influence and power in that period of time in the places where he "travelled".

At wiki we have: ‘During the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), a Ming emperor conferred seven surnames upon the Jews, by which they are identifiable today: Ai (艾), Shi (石), Gao (高), Gan (甘), Jin (金), Li (李), Zhang (張), and Zhao (趙). Two of these, Jin and Shi, are the equivalent of common Jewish names in the west: Gold and Stone.’

And another paste: https://semiticcontroversies.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-travels-of-marco-polo-and-jews-of.html

One of the odd things about 'The Travels of Marco Polo' is that it is one of the first mentions we have of jews being resident in China and more specifically of the jewish community at Kaifeng, which had been the capital of the Song dynasty before it was moved to Hangzhou and then, with the Mongol conquest, to Beijing.

>This kind of thinking is probably how them reptoids keep us all enslaved.

The string puppet theories aka conspiracies are not my cup of tea but I think in order to exercise power and control you need a certain selective info hunger, that processes to the desired outcome, which is lastly always outside of godlike control anyway, since you don't have all info, and never will.

Sometimes I read the news tho. I often think I should read more in order to understand the world better and analyze the contemporary constitution of life on earth and in human societies but I rather spent my time on books and strive the abstract realms of life.

On July 30, 1976, the LR returned its initial results from Mars. Amazingly, they were positive. As the experiment progressed, a total of four positive results, supported by five varied controls, streamed down from the twin Viking spacecraft landed some 4,000 miles apart. The data curves signaled the detection of microbial respiration on the Red Planet. The curves from Mars were similar to those produced by LR tests of soils on Earth. It seemed we had answered that ultimate question.
When the Viking Molecular Analysis Experiment failed to detect organic matter, the essence of life, however, NASA concluded that the LR had found a substance mimicking life, but not life. Inexplicably, over the 43 years since Viking, none of NASA’s subsequent Mars landers has carried a life detection instrument to follow up on these exciting results. Instead the agency launched a series of missions to Mars to determine whether there was ever a habitat suitable for life and, if so, eventually to bring samples to Earth for biological examination.

The Viking LR sought to detect and monitor ongoing metabolism, a very simple and fail-proof indicator of living microorganisms. Several thousand runs were made, both before and after Viking, with terrestrial soils and microbial cultures, both in the laboratory and in extreme natural environments. No false positive or false negative result was ever obtained. This strongly supports the reliability of the LR Mars data, even though their interpretation is debated.

In summary, we have: positive results from a widely-used microbiological test; supportive responses from strong and varied controls; duplication of the LR results at each of the two Viking sites; replication of the experiment at the two sites; and the failure over 43 years of any experiment or theory to provide a definitive nonbiological explanation of the Viking LR results.

Okay Ernst, I've been on imageboards since 2004 and during that time I've religiously backed up everything over the years and now my imageboard folder is 200,000 files strong, about 25% of those files are actually labelled so that gives about 50,000 named files.

So here's the deal, you post a single word and I'll search my drive and post the first 3 results

It's weird how coincidences like that happen. I haven't seen this episode in a while, but remembered the opening scene with Data. He knew the lines from Shakespeare's play, but Picard had to explain the motivatation behind king Henry's disguise.

Nog and jake are awesome. They start poorly - as typical "good boye kid and meme kid". Then, when you follow how they become more adult, you expect them end like weasley but they are not - they pure opposite. One seriosly think what he want from life in reality, and ended being a wrighter. Episode where Sisko ended in different phase and appear only once in 10 years making life of Jake suffering probably one of the most powerfull emotionally episodes, because you get invested into jake character very deep.
Nog from just ferengi boy starting to understand life on example of his father and uncle. He get dissapointed by whole fereny values because how it made his realtives kind of loozers, when they also have opportunities to be much more sucsesfull. His decidion to go into startfleet instead one of other most awesome and memorable scenes
https://youtu.be/Fuzh6RT0wx8 - you never expected something like this from this character at this point, however you absoluetly belive him and fully understand situation. This is moment where you start look and Nog seriously. But more than that - he continue to elvolve, grow up even after this. Like episodes how he learn to be true officier, or episode where he suffers leg damage and need to fight his weakness to belive in himself again. Brilliant episodes.

Since a few of us here are seriously interested in religion, let us have a discussion for all things related to faith, theology, spirituality, metaphysics, et cetera. Virtually everything within the purview of faith is welcome in this thread. Absolutely no restrictions on any particular belief system. Cults are as welcome as major religion so long as they have serious, substantial beliefs. Agnostics, atheists, secularists and the non-religious are welcome, but keep your inquiries and arguments in good faith.

Religion is a system that installs a bunch of commandments (up to 613 in some cases), a whole layer of piety and a generic prayer curriculum into the psyche. This is characteristic of every religion save the Ba'hai one (the purest, most exalted and yet underappreciated Abrahamic religion). Religare - something binding. You have to display belief in certain precepts and maintain the required piety.
True esoteric religion is, on the other hand, liberating rather than binding, and instead of a set of dead dogma and teachings it, rather, introduces a connection with the One Living Deity that is everything and active in every moment and manifests itself in absolutely every objective phenomenon as a guiding force and an unseen mover. This is the esoteric doctrine that has been one and the same between Taoism and Rosicrucianism, between Martinism and ancient Sumer. There were never, at any time, two competing esoteric doctrines.

We all know of the Christian Zionist movement in America, especially within the Evangelicals, but I've recently seen an emergence of Christian anti-Zionists neither affiliated with Orthodoxy nor Catholicism. Common Filth has particularly spoken out against the State of Israel, stating that Israel should be interpreted as a metaphorical place rather than a specific geographic location.

Having no knowledge of the Bible, I ask if there is a compelling case to make against Zionism within Christianity.

monotheism is by no means an upragde of polytheism. the only reason it became hype, is because christianity made relevant, judaistic religion traditions (from judaism to islam) and it did make it relevant with appealing for lowest of lows and eventually submit the roman empire.

it's completely political thing. these religions overall caused regression in human history.

Before answering that question, you'd have to ask what is the definition of God or at least its properties. Usually with modern Christianity, that goes with the creation of the universe. It can be rather safely assumed that no sentient being (not even God) has created the universe. Maybe such being could feel like he did it if he was the first sentient being there?
Such line of thinking is explained in a Buddhist sutra. That way, it can be said that Buddhism is an atheist religion.

> so I don’t have to worry about my fleeting existence?
>so
  1. This is non-sequitur. There is more to life than the modern Christian God.
  2. You don't have a proof that you or anything else really exist.

Recently I've been listening to FPM again and it still holds up pretty well. The cross between Shibuya-kei (Japanese retail pop), house music and trip-hop gives it a unique sound that I didn't get at 16.

Had this song stuck in my heda all day. Dunno if non-commonwealth Ernsts even have the cultural baggage of the name, but it's essentially an ultra campy postwar radio show about a Royal-Commando-turned-secret-agent foiling devilish plots to destroy Britain. They made a few (bad in a kind of good way) movies and a TV series in the 70s too.

We had a thread on old EC and there were a handful of people trying to lose weight this summer.

Have you made any more progress? Anyone starting to try who wasn't back then?

What are your methods and routines? What is your diet like?

I really wish that German vegetarian poster from KC that yelled at people for avoiding carbs was here. That was always really fun.

Personally, I think my goal of 19 bmi was a bad idea. I don't think there's much health benefit of being that compared to 21 or 22. I weigh what I did at 13 years old now. I'm really happy about that but while it looks good for my stomach it looks worse in other places. I'm probably going to stop here.

I'm most interested in the Finn who had a goal he wanted to reach by July.
