Absolutely amazing! The issue of water management is one that is often on my mind. This device, if developed more, could be the key to unlocking potential breadbaskets like the Sahara and Gobi deserts, among other places. The fertilizer it produces could be used to further enrich the soil. And as was pointed out, it could be the future go-to device for disaster areas. This is what dominion looks like.
Frank writes: "And let me add that normally these folks resort to the same methodology that they are accusing others of doing. I thought I made a scriptural argument for the way I address Jim and I never attacked Steven Hamilton at all. His response was either I was not a Christian or lying to myself. AMAZING."
Funny how people come on here with condemning, harsh words telling the sheep to play nicely with the goats.ðŸ˜¯
I see a lot of Christians show an excessive gentleness and "love" towards lying God-haters, but treat other believers like dirt. Hence why you have all these churches that are rotting at the core but have a thousand "outreach" programs.
According to research done by one of my older brothers, my mom's family is descended from Pocahontas's husband's second wife (the one he married after she died). No kidding. So while her death from London smog seems tragic (for me at least the first time I read about it), from a selfish perspective I'm quite grateful for it! Makes me think of Romans 8:28...
Slavery was absolutely a massive issue. But it certainly wasn't the only one. The division between the North and South was deep rooted and ranged issues such as religion, politics, culture, customs, economics, etc. Practically everything was different and the civil war was a venting of those differences. Please also note that slavery was entirely legal in several Union states until after the end of the war that was supposedly fought over it. Doesn't really add up to me.
Also thanks for that bit of info QC. I think what you say about a coming civil war couldn't be truer. This nation is far more divided than it was in the 1850s. And if awar does occur, it will be far more uncivil and nasty than the one that we read about in the history books. And if you can't find Mr. Tim's goat farm (it's way out in the boonies) you can always come survive off duck eggs and roast duck at my place. I'll be off with a guerilla band somewhere in the backwoods fighting for right so can just make yourself right at home.ðŸ˜‰

You said you wanted cold hard numbers. Again, no one can give them when it comes to secretive killings. Check out this link: http://www.thetribunepapers.com/2018/02/15/union-league-terrorism-reconstruction-series-part-2/. This article explains exactly what I'm sayin' here. Please read it for explanation.
I did not claim mass killings Neil. Your question regarding how many people were killed by the Union League and its affiliates would be impossible to find out just as much as it would be impossible to find out how many people were killed by the KKK.
Please request what kind of statistics you're looking for and I'll be happy to fill you in. Question marks is all I need. BTW didn't mean to restart the War Between the States on this little forum.ðŸ˜‰ Just trying to dialog here, let's keep our cool.
And why is the American revolution a rabbit trail? It's simply making a legitimate comparison between two historical events. The colonies the colonies separated because their rights and liberty were threatened and the American south did the same almost a century later. Simply following in the founder's footsteps.
BTW I'm very grateful for those monuments (and street names and town and county names) that were set up by previous generations to respect and remember our confederate heros. Please note that Mississippi remembers both confederate battle flags on our state flag. Other southern states do the same to a lesser degree. Heritage, not hate.
You probably read about it from a source that views it positively. Members of the KKK say it's pretty harmless as well - but they're the wrong people to ask. Get a copy of "The War Between the States" by John Dwyer and read it cover to cover. "The Secret Six" is a good one as well. Both written by godly, very educated men.
Neil, check the facts. Radical Republicans did murder many, many southerners, both black and white. They were the ancestors of today's progressives and whether they did it intentionally or not, they introduced the American version of socialism that is so prevalent today. My homeland is still reeling from the effects of their tyrannical regime - Mississippi in particular. And if secession is the essence of Anarchy, then what about our founding fathers? I suppose they were all anarchists for separating from England?
I don't find it all surprising that one of the most aggressively secular Western countries is all about marijuana. Other than assisted suicide (which Canada already fully embraces), how else do you escape the hell on Earth that institutionalized sin creates for mankind? Why not just live in the non-reality that drugs create? If you've rejected Christ as most of Canada has done, where else is there to turn? Pray that the light of the gospel would pierce through the inky darkness that covers Canada. And let's not forget that America is just a step behind the religious trends of our northern neighbors.
