Threads die. It happens. Just metaphorically put it in a shoebox and bury it in the back garden.

DB says:
David has committed adultery with Bathsheba and arranged the death of her husband. Instead of directly indicting the king for this criminal abuse of his royal authority, the prophet Nathan tells David a story. In the story, a parable of David's own actions, a powerful man takes cruel advantage of his vulnerable neighbor. Hearing the story, David is outraged and denounces the rich man-thus unwittingly pronouncing judgment on himself ("You are the man," v. 7).

* [12:6] Fourfold restitution: David's judgment foreshadows the deaths of four of his own sons: the child born of his adulterous union with Bathsheba (v. 18); Amnon (13:28-29); Absalom (18:15; 19:1); and Adonijah (1 Kgs 2:24-25).

* [12:11] In broad daylight: lit., "before the eyes of the sun"; the phrase echoes "before your very eyes" and anticipates "in the presence of the sun itself" (v. 12). The reference is to Absalom's action in appropriating his father's harem

We've all been there Clive, I don't know why Batman gets so much more coverage than the rest of us.

No Heroics, yikes! 50, it cost me 7.50.

Michael,

You should take 0 votes as a compliment. People tend to migrate where there is an opportunity to insult other people's beliefs.

Have you received treatment for your martyr complex, Light?

I don't have any idea why you would say that. Telling it like it is doesn't make me a martyr.

Michael,

It doesn't take much to resuscitate the dead, all a person has to say is, "Hi" and the insults start flying.

SAm- I think the first treatment should be for woolly thinking and wilfull ignorance, the matyr complex can be treated next week.

I've already given my prescription for ignorance.

Saying 'Hi' brings the dead back to life?

I'm heading off to North Wales with a megaphone.

Say "Hi" to my love life on the way past, would you...

'You only have to look up the names/quotes provided to draw a conclusion on how logical, valid, coherent or truthful they may be. '

Joe, they are but men like you and I, we are all equal in this life as we came into the world the same way and will leave the world the same way.

I would if I could, Sam. My schedule's packed: I'm already booked to resurrect Tom M's intelligence, DB's sanity and Peter Hitchens' charm, decorum and social conscience.

A. walker,
Yes they are men (plus a women), some of the the most intelligent people to have ever existed, i'm not saying any of them were perfect. But they are certainly some of the most iconic figures in recent history. Not opinions/facts to be taken lightly.
Yes we all come from a sperm, and no human is immortal, other than that we are all unique in our own way.
It is pot luck what gene pool you are born into, what position your parents have and the environment you grow up in.
These are all things you have zero control over, yet each one to some degree shapes who you are along with the choices you make.
These are the things that make us very different people with different perspectives and lastly unequal on an intellectual level, a biological level and on a material level.
Parents are god in the eyes of a child and rightly so they are your creators, and to some degree shape who you are.
To think we live in a world of equality is madness just look around.

A very nice post Joe, very well put.

Very good, so what would the measure of a man be? From an Atheist point of view I mean? Because without god the atheist would say once you're gone you're gone, never to even know you were here, so what did you achieve really because you have left behind all that you did and are then nothing, quite like everybody else in death ergo equal. Just as we entered this life with nothing, so too shall we leave this life with nothing.
However your point makes more sense to the faithful; the 'middle' bit as you so gallantly put it counts. The good receive the fullness of god, so too do the naive, but those who reject got with full knowledge of him then will live eternity without him and so on.
So perhaps you could return to this wealth of information you hold in such high regard maybe only to find yourself constantly contradicted.
Oh and Einstein you're not doing a particularly good job of living up to the name.

'Inexcusable with all the education that is available. '

So rather than rely on your own intellectual capacity what you mean is if Mr. B Einstein doesn't know the answer, he googles. Ha
