The creationist fruit-loop du jour left another comment here in which he tried to taunt me with his proximity (“is Minneapolis-St. Paul close enough to Morris for you?”) which wasn’t very effective, since his IP address said he was commenting from a community college in North Carolina. And then he replied with more wacky comments:
very good. you know how to analyze an IP address.
you seem to think that i need to personally track you down. but no, its much simpler. i can rely on prayer to motivate the God you hate to destroy the godless heretic He hates.
your name is jewish. thanks for being a “light to the nations” and teaching Gentiles to hate their Creator.
are you one of those jews who whine perpetually about the Holocaust? why? Hitler greatly admired your pal Darwin and acted according to the dictates of his logic!
but in my experience, Jews like you who oppose Creationism received plenty of hebraic education in your youths and even believe in the Genesis account. your support of Darwin is simply a ploy to emasculate Christianity, while leaving Judaism to reign supreme. many, like my own biochemist father, think they are actually serving God’s interest by destroying the simple faith of the average Christian. but they are gravely mistaken, since rather than serving as a light to the nations they are blinding them to their Creator.
if Jews want the Gentile world to respect them, they must learn to respect the fact that the Gentile world also is created in God’s image. you vainly imagine that by denigrating the Godly image of Gentiles you alone will remain to reign supreme. but really in destroying the Divine image of the rest of humanity you also are dooming yourselves. like the fool who drills a hole in the bottom of a boat and imagines that he can enjoy the ride while everyone else drowns.
in fact Jesus rebuked them with these very same words in the famous parable in Luke 20:
The Parable of the Tenants
9He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time.
10At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed.
11He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed.
12He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out.
13″Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.’
14″But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. ‘This is the heir,’ they said. ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’
15So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
“What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
16He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When the people heard this, they said, “May this never be!”
17Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written:
” ‘The stone the builders rejected
has become the capstone[a]'[b]? 18Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.”
19The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.
wake up before it is too late. the more you mess with God’s creation, the more reason you give for God to pour out His wrath upon you. He has withheld His anger because you too, as His creature, deserve His love. but His patience is not infinite. and your doom in hell will be when it finally runs out…
It’s mostly boring blather from a faith-head, but there was a revelation.
My family is going to be so surprised. I suppose it’s possible that the original Myers who emigrated from the Netherlands to America in the 17th century could have had some Jewish link, but after all that time I don’t think I could really claim a connection other genetically or culturally.
