Millhouse “Who’s “we”, paleface?”
You have at least one mirror in the house don’t you?April 17, 2020 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1850042
ubiquitin-“no not strange. Pandemics are not that rare. you say “but not on this scale” true, but he didnt predict the scale”
-scale or not, its funny how there were so many “warnings” before Trump took office and during, while before then we never heard of such a word as pandemic. Definitely not under Obama. And btw the mock pandemic meeting aka “Event 201” which conveniently took place a month or 2 before news from China broke out, coincidentally dealt with a pandemic on this scale or even greater which they hoped for. Oh what a hero Bill Gates is now pretending how he would like to save people lives while nervously laughing each time he hears or says the word pandemic or death to his delight. Same person who spoke about depopulation for years via pandemic and vaccines. You can try to act as smart as you want, but many things have been occurring and being handled in a way that raises one’s eyebrow. Do some research, maybe you’ll learn something.
“wait a minute…. you were one of the first I heard to say it was man- made. so if in fact it turns out to be man-made this PROVES you had a hand in it.
There is no other possible explanation. you are clearly behind all of this”
-There is a difference between “warning” (hinting) about a pandemic before something happens and speculating or investigating an occurrence “AFTER” it happened.April 17, 2020 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1850022
Millhouse-” Pandemics are nothing unusual. It would be extraordinary to go eight years without one. Therefore it was not at all remarkable for Dr Fauci to predict that there would be at least one during Trump’s administration.”
-So…where were all the warnings, precautions, mock pandemic preparedness, meetings and gatherings, accusations and reactions during obamas term or leading up to it?April 17, 2020 12:47 pm at 12:47 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1849980
ubiquitin- ya but not on this scale, those were more like outbreaks than pandemics. What reason would there be to believe there would ever be a pandemic? There hasnt been one since the spanish flu and even then it wasnt worldwide. If this was made in a lab then obviously that changes everything and makes the scenario of a pandemic more likely to happen.. But just a naturally occurring pandemic suddenly? What reason to think it should happen?
If in fact this was lab-made, many of those who “warned” us even years in advance surely had a hand in this.April 17, 2020 1:36 am at 1:36 am in reply to: “Event 201” #1849882
Yserbius”There still hasn’t been one lab confirming that the virus is man made.”
-There is an investigation going on now regarding if this in fact came from chinese lab. Whether it was unleashed intentionally or not is a different story.
Also to add on to the list of warnings from bill gates and the like, Dr Fauci stated in Jan 2017 that during Trump’s administration there would be a pandemic. STRANGE.April 12, 2020 12:09 am at 12:09 am in reply to: No information! #1848627
“RW: Why are you afraid of others knowing what you do?
Unless you’re doing illegal or inapp6 stuff.”
Ok Joseph the next time you go use the bathroom just leave the door open. Also the next time you are having a conversation with someone record it and share it with everyone you know. Also when you are changing record yourself and share with everyone online. Is that “innapropriate” and “illegal” enough for you to rather keep those things private?
Most predictable comeback, i thought you were smarter than that.April 8, 2020 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm in reply to: No information! #1848336
Ubiquitin- this is a big misconception. The problem is that even if you don’t use anything, Facebook will create a profile on you to keep as long as you are listed in someone’s phone contacts who has Facebook, Google and all apps will record you as long as someone with a smartphone calls you, (aside for the government surveillance regardless of what phone you have), and even paid emails will still share your informa5. You pay internet bills and utility bills noone is giving you that for free. And once you have paid services or even a library card all your info gets sold and will appear in public records on the web. Including name, age, date of birth, address history and current, and probably much more if you pay for the info. It’s so unsettling especially since most people have to use email and do have many apps or even social media.
Whether you want to or not the world changed. Used to be fax and mail now it is all done online and by email. Just becaue the world changed and forces us to use these as necessity isn’t fair that we must compromise all our personal information for renewed methods of communication.
All the tin foil hatters are on point for today. In fact they probably underestimate how much data is mined on us. You know it’s legitimate when respected tech websites even point this out and create many articles on this issue. They know you more than you remember. Every step you take, every time you use Google maps, they know where you were, where you went, when you went, everything!
They even record you through your devices without knowing.April 8, 2020 10:53 am at 10:53 am in reply to: No information! #1848325
Joseph, thats the first reason that yidden might think of. But just because Hashem knows everything about us doesn’t mean people want others to know as well. Are you comfortable with anyone knowing every step you take throughout the day or every conversation you have?March 27, 2020 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1843782
yserbius”That was one Chinese official and other Chinese officials called him quote crazy unquote.”
-Crazy or not it was serious enough for Trump to have to call it the chinese virus to be clear that it came out of china. He was asked many times about that and that was his answer.
ubiquitin-” There is a reason why the CDC had a pandemic office that Trumop got rid of since it hadnt been used.”
-Theres also a reason why Bill Gates “conveniently” stepped down from Microsoft.
“question for you though ? why would they film this event and release it cant thaey use their powers to shut down the internet? or at least suppress the evidence if they can shut down the world economy why cant they shut down a video?”
-They are proud of the video so that they can say told you so. If noone finds out that they knew about it why hide it? That in it of itself would be suspicious to suddenly remove it all. If you knew what they spoke about in the meeting, youd know that internet shutdown was proposed during pandemic in order to “avoid panic”, if that makes any sense at all.
Why is it so hard to believe that the virus was made in a lab? More and more evidence is coming up that its not such a conspiracy anymore. Many countries have bio warfare labs. The question is more was it released intentionally or not. Just because it may have been created in a lab doesnt mean it was intentionally released. It most likely escaped which is why China tried to hide this from the world until December when it got out of control. Interesting how all the chinese doctors who tried warning about this conveniently got sick and died or disappeared. Why would China hide this from the world. Even Trump publicly said he was disappointed that President Xi didnt share info earlier. He was more than disappointed it was more of an accusation via hint.March 27, 2020 7:58 am at 7:58 am in reply to: “Event 201” #1843663
so how did they “know” about the “next pandemic”March 23, 2020 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1842173
Yserbius “Not one laboratory has stated that they believe the virus to be man made.”
Ya except for china blaming the US saying the army brought the virus into Wuhan. So that’s one country who thinks it could have been man made. Which is why trump is calling it The Chinese virus to make it clear of the origin. He could have called it the china virus but that’s a different topic.March 19, 2020 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1841428
Gadol and yakov. I can understand the disblief. I know that the world is made up of tzaddikim and it’s hard to accept that these things can happen.
You want sources? Check event 201 on YouTube you will see the whole recorded meeting that took place in October 2019. See their “predictions” which played out so well by these “prophets”. Check out bill gates on depopulation. Check out bill gates Ted talk in 2005 on the next pandemic. See his nervous laugh when he talks about people dying and about past epidemics such as ebola.
Read up on it. Read people’s comments.
Again I said I’m not a conspiracy theorist. What a coincidence however that they had this meeting on how unprepared the world is for the next pandemic and boom, less than 2 months later it unleashed.
And many have said it’s a conspiracy theory that this came out of a lab. Many are starting to see that it’s not such a conspiracy. Even china themselves have tried to pin this on the US army “bringing the virus into china”. How do you “bring” a virus if its not contained in some vile?
And to shut down the world economy and do more damage in 1 week than all the years of a broken economy? To shut people down in their homes and make them tear each other apart like savages over toilet paper?
Noone coming out to calm the people about how America has an abundance of supplies or the fact that many who got the virus also recovered. No, the only numbers they show are the ones who contracted it as to leave an impression that it ended there.
Di Blasio admitted that with more testing we will confirm more cases. “Nothing to panic, it’s a fact since testing will confirm that people have it doesn’t mean they didnt have it already”. But suddenly he uses the escalating cases to frighten everyone that we can only compare the situation to the great depression and that we must lockdown.
Interesting way to de-escalate all the panic which the media and “leaders” have been doing a great job at. Again I never said there isn’t a virus. Swine flu existed as well.March 19, 2020 2:10 pm at 2:10 pm in reply to: “Event 201” #1841292
Anyone familiar?March 4, 2020 1:19 am at 1:19 am in reply to: abc’s on cbd #1837474
Most will either cleverly hide or give vague information on their products, but even the ones that do advertise grown in USA who’s to say you can trust it?
Cbdistllery which is much cheaper than the others and considered to be effective advertises as made in USA and lab tested for potency and purity.
But again how can you believe any of these companies?
I know Charlotte’s Web is considered trusted but you can check YouTube reviews for all 3 I’ve mentioned and seems they all have good reviews,which again can be biased so who knows.
Question is if Charlotte’s Web is charging more just becaue they know they have a good name and are trusted. As it is cbd oil is highly overpriced. Of course if it’s effective it is worth it but it still is overpriced currently.
Charlotte’s Web 500 mg goes for 74.99 while Cbdistllery 500 goes for 30. Spruce is also 74.99 but for 750 mg.
Aside for those there are a few other high caliber companies in the same category and level, with similar price range plus or minus.
These 3 happen to appear on many top lists. But again so many companies to choose from even those that are considered premium product.March 2, 2020 12:38 pm at 12:38 pm in reply to: abc’s on cbd #1836894
So i looked into Charlottes Web(by stanley brothers), Spruce and CBDistillery as I narrowed down the list. Anyone have experience with these brands? I know charlottes web and spruce are considered premium and trusted companies but are more expensive than cbdistillery which is also known to have positive effects.February 23, 2020 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm in reply to: Cures for Corona Virus #1834570

Syag-“exactly my point. Who ever said that that wasn’t the reason for the “no” in the first place. And why can’t someone look for the person who has the nature they are looking for without being accused of being petty, materialistic, money hungry and everything else you called her….”
Well it’s pretty easy to tell that it wasn’t the reason in the first place seeing how most girls first question is what do you do, and if they aren’t happy with the answer the conversation is over. So ya there isn’t even a chance to get to know the person. And let’s be real, if the guy is swimming in cash and shows up in a nice new car, suddenly it’s much easier to accept everything else.
Syag, not sure how you perceive things, but finding a person with the right “nature” doesn’t mean how much he makes and what lineage he has. And if you were really looking for someone with the right “nature”, your first question wouldn’t be, “so what do you do”?February 19, 2020 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm in reply to: How girls are causing the shidduch crisis! #1833186
” Whatever YOU and some of the bochur’s family and friends may think about his virtues are irrelevant. It is only HER standards that count, after she considers the views of all those she trusts.”
Well you know what Dorah- next time you complain about a bochir rejecting a girl especially based on how she looks, remember it’s HIS standards that count. What you think of that girl means nothing. Especially since she won’t suddenly change to become beautiful. But a guy on the other hand can become a millionaire the next day so if anything, most reasons that women have are so senseless because they base mostly on money to define the person. I’m sure even if the guy isn’t such a good guy but leaves a money trail everywhere he goes,”HER” standards will suddenly drop by a longshot so let’s not kid ourselves. Suddenly midos, and personality won’t matter so much. Everything is great!
And if you have any problem with a guy not being able to or wanting to force himself to marry somoen he isn’t attracted to, then I suggest you take a course to rewire your perception of how things work.February 19, 2020 2:25 pm at 2:25 pm in reply to: How girls are causing the shidduch crisis! #1833149
Dorah-“If a young woman decides a young man is not a good match for her, than she should stay with that decision. Whatever YOU and some of the bochur’s family and friends may think about his virtues are irrelevant. It is only HER standards that count, after she considers the views of all those she trusts.”
-noone is forcing anyone to get to know or marry someone who they don’t want that’s an obvious. What you don’t seem to get is that “HER” standards, are not really her standards. They are standards that were instilled into her mind by others and anything less than that will not work for her.
And on what bases is a “young woman” deciding that a young man is not a good match for her? Just becaue he doesn’t have a career doesn’t make him a bad guy. Again for those “powerful” women out there who have a career and don’t need a man then good for them. They look for a guy who makes even more than them and end up being his trophy wife which means what it sounds. Maybe they will regret later maybe not but yes, that’s their decision.
But many girls out there who don’t think that way, think that way nowadays becaue of what their surroundings make them perceive as ‘standards”. So yes when there are such good guys out there who for whatever reason didn’t yet land some career and work hard at a regular job or trade, and are being viewed as unqualified, then we have an issue.
What’s wrong if someone has a regular stable job. They aren’t worthy of getting married? They don’t deserve someone in their life? Who said they won’t get something better later in life or advance or get a better opportunity? And ehks to say the one with the career won’t lose it? And where do we factor in someone’s personality, caring, respectful, giving,considerate,patient, fun to be around, attentive and so on?
My point isnt that everyone should settle for what they don’t want. My point is that many are skipping over quality unique individuals becaue they “think” they will be settling since the false standards have been established.
And for the comment about love comes after. I never said love at first sight where did I write that? Obviously it comes after and you build towards it which strengthens my point about how many girls are taught that perfection should be strived for before you even get married, and that could not be further from reality. Your list of pre-qualifications and standards can be thrown out the window. Many who think they got perfect are deeply disappointed shortly after. And the other way around.February 19, 2020 8:50 am at 8:50 am in reply to: How girls are causing the shidduch crisis! #1833018
Syag-“I have seen guys present themselves as wonderful, straight, serious guys but they forgot that their facebook pages are public. They may think the girls said no out of pickiness, but that’s because they don’t have a clue that they are presenting a very unattractive side of themselves that doesn’t quite match their resume.”
I don’t mean to be harsh and I don’t speak for myself I speak for many of my friends and good guys out there who don’t even get a chance becaue they don’t meet these flawed “standards” that have been set. Obviously people who deceive others shouldn’t expect. The ones who are real don’t even get a chance. That’s the issue.
People who are genuine deserve to find someone genuine of course. But the corrupt mindset that unfortunately nowadays most women have, the illogical and unrealistic demands ruin it for everyone including themselves.
The illusion that everything should be perfect before marriage it’s like what are they thinking? Do people really think if everything is “perfect” before the marriage then it’s a match made in heaven? I mean seriously there is no perfect and marriage is something that both sides work together to keep. The main thing is for the couple to love each other and actually want to stay together not to marry someone who will satisfy the requirements of their parents and shadchan and friends. Yes parents opinion is important and neccessary since they have experience and are on the sidelines can see clearer, but that’s not the issue.
The issue is the corrupted mindset of women nowadays and then they wonder why they are either divorced or over 30 and alone. These demands have to stop and someone has to educate women/girls (and guys) and remind them of the Torah way and what marriage is really about. Japs will be Japs. But good girls who get influenced by surrounding and result in a corrupted mindset is a shame and really everyone loses out. You are marrying the person who is unique and might be the best person for you. If you want to marry money go get a stack of cash and put a ring on it.February 19, 2020 12:03 am at 12:03 am in reply to: How girls are causing the shidduch crisis! #1832996
Mystikins_”I’d rather my daughter marry at 30 than end up with a man who insists she should settle for him instead of with the respectful husband she deserves.”
Your sick logic is part of the issue and it’s why your daughter likely will have to wait until 30 to get the “husband she deserves” according to your qualifications.February 18, 2020 11:29 am at 11:29 am in reply to: How girls are causing the shidduch crisis! #1832773
These girls are becoming too picky for their own good. Everything needs to be perfect before marriage they think and demand. And then when they are over 30 and it starts getting really late, they still don’t wake up.
The amount of attraction that they developed for money has gotten out of control. So many good guys who want to get married and simply aren’t “qualified” enough by the sick standards that have been set, just to have a woman. Then they get depressed and unbalanced being alone and not even allowed to be in a relationship without being married. So what choice do they have aside from just giving everything up? How long can one be trapped alone.
Yes the blame is on these new age minded woman and girls and all the ones who surround them such as sick minded parents and shadchanim and friends instilling into their mind ” strive for perfect” ” he has to be settled what do you want to live on the street? He needs to have a career not just a job!”.
Perfect? Nothing is perfect even after marriage! Which is why the divorce rates are going up since these corrupt minds expect things that are unrealistic and don’t understand it doesn’t work that way. There’s a reason why it was easier to get married back in the day and why people stayed together.
They didn’t file for a get/divorce anytime the husband got upset or said a wrong word to them or didn’t take out the garbage!
Yes there are some guys out there who aren’t serious. But today it is the girls who play games and simply have such demands and requirements that it seems they don’t mind being alone their whole life rather than ‘settling” for any less than a prince.
So many good guys out there who simply aren’t given a chance. These girls would be considered lucky to have them as a husband who would love and care for them more than they could imagine. Yet most go for money and many end up regretting it since they get treated like nothing and it’s too late once they have 3 kids and realize this wasn’t what they wanted.
What happened to a woman would rather settle than be alone? In the Talmud. It seems like that is so far from today’s reality. Besides who’s settling? They aren’t even giving a chance to good guys who by the way work and learn Torah as well! Since when did money become such a Torah principle! “He has to look good, have a full time career, full time yeshiva bachur, and do all the chores around the house including taking care of the kids”! What world are we living in. Nowadays women feel they don’t even need to cook for the house. It’s 2020 equal rights. How is it equal if the man still has to work full time plus do all of her work or not expect anything from her not even to make food! Sick corrupted minds.February 11, 2020 2:04 am at 2:04 am in reply to: landscape painting watching Israel? #1830688

Now they will make thicker plastic bags that use more plastic which will be even worse for “environment”. Haha if someone wants to reuse they will reuse even a regular bag which have been proven to be quite reusable. And if they want they will toss a “reusable” bag even though it’s “reusable.”February 4, 2020 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm in reply to: No more shopping bags! #1828826
Meno-“A few months ago I went to a Home Depot in Connecticut and they didn’t give bags so I walked out juggling a miter saw and a few pieces of hardware.”
Meno did you also purchase a few LEDs while at it? ; )
Anyhow there is the loophole since it says they can’t offer non reusable bags. So basically they can still distribute free plastic bags just use a slightly thicker plastic which would qualify. I’m sure many department stores will do that.
For all the past business owners saying using paper bags worked great, just know that most businesses are upset at this change since paper weighs a lot and will cost them much more to order to the store. The fact that trader Joe’s uses paper is because they are an extreme liberal mentality as can be seen by the shoppers there. Extreme left wing save the whales type. So for their agenda it’s worth getting these paper bags to offer. But they don’t seem cheap they are pretty heavy paper. Doubt most businesses will want those. And besides even thought they have handles the handles rip with anything heavy inside and paper is more prone to tearing in general.
With plastic you can just double bag and it can carry a lot of weight. Bottom line is they can just use biodegradable plastic. But they don’t want to. They would rather cut down more trees and use paper. What sense?February 4, 2020 9:30 am at 9:30 am in reply to: No more shopping bags! #1828717
Why is everyone saying that small businesses only will be affected? The big stores will also not be giving bags.

@Just me- aside for speed limit and cameras at every corner, they are trying to put tolls on all bridges into and out of Manhattan and will likely get their way. And noone can do anything about it. New Yorkers aren’t stigmatized as rude and neurotic for no reason. This city does its best to make them that way.
And to all those saying you can carry a bag with you. Look, idk about you but most people don’t feel like carrying around a bag like a homeless everywhere just in case they need to visit the store to pick a few things up. And if they give biodegradable bags for meat, why not just switch to biodegradable rather than eliminating bags altogether?
And while we are at it let’s eliminate plastic bottles, soda cans plastic straws, and the like. Paper napkins also just being your own handkerchief to any restaurant or bagel store you visit. Why the need to go backwards? And since when is using paper from trees better for the environment suddenly? Weren’t we always trying to save paper/trees? Why don’t we eliminate cars and refrigerator me altogether it’ll be better for the environment. Horses actually help with fertilizing the soil. We should go back to that.February 1, 2020 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm in reply to: No more shopping bags! #1827918
GadolHadora- “Right is wrong. Get over it. 31 of the 50 states (plus D.C.) now prohibit plastic bags, including Oregon, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut and Delaware, Maryland, and California.”
edited let me begin by asking why you feel the need to spin my name on every reply. You aren’t even doing it right.
Secondly, New York is the second state for the ban after California not sure where you got 31. And good for you for keeping 100 tote bags in your car. Not everyone likes to have random trash filling up their car. And what If you don’t have a car or are just randomly going into a store for a few things without your car? Should you keep 20 tote bags in your back pocket just in case the need arises for them?
You say they aren’t recyclable. Number one thing people do with a plastic bag is reuse them from carrying other things or as garbage bags.
If they really wanted to save the environment they can use biodegradable bags which have been around for a long time already. What about the trees being affected now from all the paper bags which btw will be littering the streets as well. Did you forget why they switched to plastic in the first place? To save trees? If this is about littering they can enforce littering and decrease the issue. Why don’t we ban paper napkins from the bagel store while we’re at it since they are seen tumbling away with the wind everywhere?
We are going backwards. This has nothing to do with plastic bags and everything to do with liberals getting their illogical way of things and the government getting rich off bag tax. Most retailers are upset since it cost a lot to ship paper bags and will have to pay more to order them. Reusable totes are unsanitary and just inconvenient. Unless you invent totes that fold up to the size of a quarter which you can keep several of in your pocket at all times, this system is going to cause an uproar.
Are you also justifying the tolls that are proposed to take effect just to enter and leave Manhattan? Why don’t we also have a toll on the BQE and Belt I mean that will surely help with traffic won’t it? Oh ya and all this while raising all the existing tolls and subway fare without even repairing and upgrading the subway system and roads which is already happening. Great idea.January 31, 2020 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm in reply to: LED or lost empty dollars? #1827766
Meno and what about 100watts which are pretty common as well. Did you check those prices? Besides you don’t think $3 for a bulb is a lot when light bulbs are just basic necessities? Especially if they won’t really last you for 22 years…January 31, 2020 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm in reply to: LED or lost empty dollars? #1827748
You can check home Depot prices or Amazon and unless you get them on sale, the brands such as Philips or the like will end up costing you $6 and up for a bulb. Even if you do get them for less it still takes many years for the price you paid to reward you for the savings in electrical bill.
Of course LED is supposed to be the step up from CFL but first of all CFL are still brighter if you look at the package details and much cheaper than LED. There is no reason for a bulb to cost so much when incandescent used to be 4 for a buck. How long do we have to wait for LED to become the norm and not some breakthrough with high prices.
Sort of like how flat screens are still called flat screen TV as if it’s something special. What are we comparing it to tube TV’s? Those don’t exist anymore. (Flat screens have gone down in price substantially though).
Since LED have been around for more than a decade I’m sure it’s as cheap to make as incandescent. But they still make a big fuss over it just to sell it for a lot of money.
And besides, its a fact that many LED bulbs including the brand names don’t last even close to what it says on the box. You can check tech sites online for that. And personally I’ve used Sunbeam or other American companies and many of them if they hadn’t burnt out they start to flicker which is just as bad maybe worse. It’s an issue with LED and old wiring. So ya unless you are rewiring your whole house which already will be more expensive than using old incandescent then be prepared for this.
But then again you can see the new streetlight LED which many will flicker from time to time on the street or highway, so while you are at it replace the whole city grid as well.
So ya most of the time the bulbs aren’t the problem (obviously the Chinese made are bad quality duh) but it’s the compatibility issue with the old wiring and circuits. CFL didn’t have that issue. And btw not a huge saving difference from CFL to LED especially when you factor how much more you’re paying for an LED bulb. The watts difference is minute. And even if you claim LED is lasting you for now, they are advertising 22 years. So even if it lasts 3 years for you, thats nowhere close to 22 and is the same life as incandescent.
Of course I’m a fan of LED but if they aren’t lasting due to old NEW YORK wiring and grid, then it gets kinda frustrating.January 17, 2020 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1823852
Ya copying and pasting is best option. But in all honesty there have been much longer posts approved. Doesn’t matter now, what’s done is done.January 17, 2020 1:02 am at 1:02 am in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1823671
I doubt it but that’s fine. I’ll try not to quote anyone when I answer them this way they won’t understand what I’m replying to. Now you’ll say the 1200 characters were besides the copy and pasted quotes of other screennames I was replying to. Anyway it’s fine whatever makes you happy. I’ve seen posts which fill half a webpage which you approve. Not sure why this pick and choose game makes you feel so powerful.January 16, 2020 8:37 pm at 8:37 pm in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1823660
Really mods? My post was so long? Surely it wasn’t as long as the latest post by random. There wasn’t much to moderate I didn’t say anything remotely negative. Was asking why as Jews we would have to rely on non Jewish healing since they have the knowledge for it? Asking why in Judaism we don’t have as much of that knowledge? Is this post also too long because my other post was pretty much the same. Surely not nearly as long as other posts in this topic by others. It’s annoying because you guys don’t care that people invest time and effort to write and with one click you make it disappear for no good reason. Then just have to rewrite the post. At least modify if you think something so bad was written which surely wasn’t the case here.
Yes we do care, we don’t make things disappear for no good reason, your post was about 1200 characters longer than the long one.January 15, 2020 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm in reply to: how can we know? #1823227
“Israel has more antisemitism than the US. If you think you need to leave, moving to Israel on that basis is less safe. I’d suggest Australia or Canada is where to move.”
-umm…..okayyJanuary 15, 2020 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm in reply to: how can we know? #1823195
“Israel has more antisemitism than the US. If you think you need to leave, moving to Israel on that basis is less safe. I’d suggest Australia or Canada is where to move.”
-Joseph give me a break, thats such a foolish statement. First of all, Canada? Which is more anti semitic than other areas?
Yes Israel makes life for the frum difficult no doubt, but in event of antisemitism Israel would be the safest place. You really think the Israeli government would set up concentration camps? The fact is that antisemitism is being unleashed in the world and we have to know if this is our warning. It always starts small, from thugs and low lives. The problem gets worse when it catches on like wildfire and spreads away from just the thug population.January 15, 2020 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm in reply to: how can we know? #1823096
it starts with the “powerless fringe elements”. Thats why the question was if thats our warning.January 15, 2020 5:12 am at 5:12 am in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1822937
Random- so I wrote an interesting reply but wasn’t posted for whatever funny reason the mods have. Sorry don’t feel like retyping it all. Would have liked to see answers but you know, mods what can you do. There was nothing wrong with my reply so kind of disappointed that its lost thanks to mods.
Very long posts are hard to moderate and are more likely to not be approved. See https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/moderation-memos-posting-tips-and-important-links#post-612444January 13, 2020 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1822524
“Who says all wisdom is religious wisdom? We are allowed to utilize non-religious wisdom that comes from the nations around us, such as technology or medicinal cures.”
-problem is a lot of times it’s intertwined and difficult to separate the wisdom from the religion aspectJanuary 12, 2020 10:48 am at 10:48 am in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1821884
So just to be clear, red string, blue eye, chamsa and magen david do not have clear Jewish origings and are possibly adopted from other religions?
I even heard an opinion that dressing up costumes on Purim was also a custom taken from the non Jewish holiday. Any truth to that?January 11, 2020 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1821811
Avram md-so are you saying before magen david the menorah mostly symbolized the Jewish religion? It is very iconic till this day as well.
“No. Idolatrous religions were all made up by people. Christianity and Islam did derive some of their ideas from Judaism. As far as wisdom in other religions, Jews are strictly forbidden from investigating other religions and their practices.”
-Why did it take so many years from creation for Judaism to develop as well as other monotheistic religions? How come idolatrous religions are still alive and strong even in this age of understanding? Most of the eastern part of the world for example still follow those religions.
Yes not allowed to learn from other religions but are there any practices or knowledge which came from us even before Judaism was official which have been lost or forgotten on our end but kept by these other nations? Such as eastern medicine, mind and body healing, meditations or any other general secrets/wisdom. Obviously there are many instances where modern medicine is not fit to cure and more homeopathic and herbal remedies are necessary and can fix. Wouldn’t it be strange if Judaism doesn’t have those essential secrets but having to rely on other religious wisdom?January 8, 2020 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1821206
Reb eliezer many Tzaddikim have said that the version of the book that we know of is not the original that was handed down. Look it upJanuary 8, 2020 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm in reply to: Now, that’s Jewish(?) #1821123
“The Otzar Yisroel says that the symbol can be found in the Sefer Raziel Hamalach.”
-again we don’t even know what that sefer is since many have said the one we know of is not the original and not even known who wrote this oneJanuary 8, 2020 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm in reply to: between Berlin and Slobodka #1821124
Jewish unity-just curious why have you been tracking this book for years?
