I started learning how to practice Falun Dafa from my father earlier this year. On May 13, I got up early to practice the first four exercises, before sitting down with my father to send righteous thoughts for an hour and a half. Within the first half an hour, my legs began to hurt and my right hand began to tremble.

My father noticed my condition and told me, “This is caused by interference from the evil spirits and rotten ghosts from other dimensions. Disintegrate them with strong righteous thoughts!” My father continued encouragingly, “Today is World Falun Dafa Day and also Master's birthday. Cultivating to the best of our abilities is the best birthday present we can give to Master.” My father’s words strengthened my determination to persevere.

By the time an hour had passed, my legs were badly hurting and my hands, which were in the lotus position, were violently shaking. My father noticed me trembling and advised, “In cases of very strong interference from evil spirits, you can ask Master for help to disintegrate them.” Amazingly, my hands stopped trembling soon after I sent a silent request to Master for help. However the evil spirits refused to admit defeat and increased the level of interference. Within half a minute, my hands began trembling so severely that I had difficulty keeping my palms and fingers together.

With my father’s encouragement, I continued asking Master for help while sending righteous thoughts. In the midst of this, I saw a large number of people sitting in the lotus position observing me gravely. I also heard a pitiful voice, calling my name and begging me not to continue sending forth righteous thoughts. I managed to persevere until the entire hour and a half hour had passed. At that point, my hand suddenly stopped trembling, the pain in my legs receded and Master suddenly appeared before my eyes, happily calling out my name before exclaiming, “That was wonderful!”

Master proceeded to open my celestial ears and eyes, allowing me to see and hear scenes in other dimensions. Master also strengthened my ability to eliminate evil beings and cleansed my body. From then on, I began encountering xinxing tests while practicing the sitting meditation. Once, while in the sitting meditation, I was lifted to a very high level where I saw the dazzling sight of Master smiling while sitting on a lotus flower. Just as I was surveying the scene delightedly, I was suddenly pulled down to stand before a tall and mighty god.

This god told me, “Come and learn from me. I am so tall and powerful that it is certain I follow the righteous way.” I immediately felt something amiss and recalled Master’s teachings, “One day you may suddenly see a large, tall immortal. He gives you a few complimentary words and teaches you something. If you accept it, your gong will be messed up.” (Zhuan Falun). With this in mind, I told the evil being, “I will not learn from you. I will only cultivate Falun Dafa. Don’t think you can intimidate me with your size. Once my supernatural powers manifest, I’ll definitely be larger than you.”

Just as these words left my mouth, I suddenly became as big as the universe. That evil being was even smaller than a cell! At this point, Master appeared in front of me, laughing happily. Yet another time while sitting in meditation, three beautiful girls materialized before my eyes and began to dance. I immediately recalled Master’s teachings, “I’m not an ordinary person. I’m a practitioner. You shouldn’t treat me this way, for I’m a Falun Dafa practitioner.” (Zhuan Falun)

In an instant, the three beautiful women turned into scary demons and advanced towards me threateningly. I remained unmoved and thought firmly, “I am a Dafa practitioner. I am not afraid of you.” At this point, one of the demons attempted to strike my head with his stick, though his attack was stopped by an invisible force. I knew this was a sign of Master’s protection. As the demons were relentless in their attempts to cause harm, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate them. In response, a gap filled with fire suddenly cracked open in the ground. The three demons fell into the pit of fire and were instantly turned into ashes! On seeing this, I immediately burst into tears.

After my celestial eye was opened, I encountered tribulations each time I entered the sitting meditation. A firm righteous mind has helped me to overcome each tribulation encountered. Fortunately, I was granted the opportunity to become a Dafa practitioner. I am grateful to Master for purifying my body, strengthening my righteous thoughts and for arranging a smooth cultivation path!

Quote# 133135

The purpose behind Halloween has not been lost. Human sacrifice, though substantially reduced through prayer, is still going on as well as the recruitment of many thousands of teens and young adults into witchcraft and satanism via Halloween parties.

Yes, Halloween glorifies Satan, who is evil. True Christians will not rationalize the sin of touching the unclean thing. They will instead, pray against it

Parents who send their children "out" to participate in Halloween dressed in any fashion--whether as a devil or as a saint are giving Satan and his demons permission to afflict and even indwell their children.

Samhain was (and continues to be) celebrated by the Druids and requires human sacrifice. Halloween is the modern term for this satanic highday that hides behind a seemingly innocuous front of fun and games that serves to divert attention from its true purpose: worldwide human sacrifice.

Quote# 132988

An Oxford College has banned the Christian Union from its freshers’ fair on the grounds that it would be “alienating” for students of other religions, and constitute a “micro-aggression”.

The organiser of Balliol’s fair argued Christianity’s historic use as “an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism” meant that students might feel “unwelcome” in their new college if the Christian Union had a stall.

Freddy Potts, vice-president of Balliol’s Junior Common Room (JCR) committee, said that if a representative from the Christian Union (CU) attended the fair, it could cause "potential harm" to freshers.

Mr Potts, writing on behalf of the JCR's welfare committee, told the CU representative at Balliol, that their "sole concern is that the presence of the CU alone may alienate incoming students”.

In email correspondence, seen by The Daily Telegraph, he went on: “This sort of alienation or micro-aggression is regularly dismissed as not important enough to report, especially when there is little to no indication that other students or committee members may empathise, and inevitably leads to further harm of the already most vulnerable and marginalised groups.

“Historically, Christianity’s influence on many marginalised communities has been damaging in its methods of conversion and rules of practice, and is still used in many places as an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism."

He said that barring the Christian Union from the fair “may be a way of helping to avoid making any students feel initially unwelcome within Balliol”.

Initially he said the JCR committee wanted the fair to be a “secular space”, explaining that since he "couldn't guarantee every major belief system" would have stalls at the the fair, students from other religions may "suffer" if their faith is not represented.

“Many students, especially students of colour and of other faiths, may already feel alienated and vulnerable in Oxford, a university with a reputation for racism and lack of diversity, and a city with barely any appropriate places of worship for non-Christians," he said.

“Hopefully, as people of faith, you may be able to empathise with this, and we ask you to consider from a place of compassion the potential harm to those freshers who are already severely and harmfully disadvantaged.”

However, Mr Potts - who was part of Balliol’s winning University Challenge team - later conceded that he would allow a “multi-faith” stall at the fair, with information about various university religious societies. Student representatives of the CU were barred from attending in person and distributing leaflets.

The move sparked a backlash among students, with others within the College criticising it as a “violation of free speech”.

The JCR passed a motion on Sunday evening condemning the JCR committees for “barring the participation of specific faith-based organizations”.

The motion said the ban was a "violation of free speech, a violation of religious freedom, and sets dangerous precedents regarding the relationship between specific faiths and religious freedom".

Dr Joanna Williams, a university lecturer and author of Academic Freedom in an Age of Conformity, said the decision to ban the Christian Union was “completely bizarre”.

“It is intolerance being exercised in the name of inclusion,” she said. “They are saying: ‘Your religious society is not welcome here’. Essentially they are saying that the Christian Union is not allowed to recruit new members.”

Quote# 133126

Are their human cells - other than in some occasional hermaphrodite other rare humans that have sex chromosomes that don’t fit the normal XX or XY pattern - no. And even when there are chromosome abnormalities such as XXY, XXXY, ect, the presence of the Y chromosome generally resolves the biological and physical gender to male, and without to female.

So their own biological circumstances of abnormal chromosome patterns and ambiguous genitalia, but again the sex chromosomes, X and Y, and the presence of absence of the Y it the vast majority sets the gender. None of that is about “transgenderism” which is not about ambiguous or abnormal sexual differentiation in the nucleus of every human cell in someone’s body, which does not differ in the cells of the same body.

No, transgenderism is a mental problem, an obsessions continued and entertained to the point where the individual has an identity dysphoria - rejection of the actual gender identity there body has. To use the rare occasions of hermaphrodites and even rarer abnormal combinations of the sex chromosomes as templates for what gender means to the vast population, is intellectually dishonest. It suggests that merely since such differences do appear, naturally, that normal gender is therefor “fluid” and that is simply a lie. It is not “fluid” if you were not born with BIOLOGICAL conditions that somehow make BIOLOGICAL gender “ambiguous”.

There is no “biological” ambiguity with transgenders. Just a mental problem. Their bodies have nothing “wrong” that needs “fixing”. They need professional help to stop satisfy the identity dysphoria that has taken hold in the mind. Yes, the easy solution, just like an addiction, is to satisfy the obsession, just like it is to satisfy and addiction, instead of mounting the struggle to fight it.

Yes, that fight is a struggle and there is hurt and sadness and anxiety in it. But, we act against obsessions and addictions because they represent the mind literally lying to us, convincing us that something that is wrong is something we need.

Lady Checkmate's headline: "Alt-Left Angry: 'Hazards of Homosexuality' Flier Distributed at Values Voter Summit"

Thank God for Trump and Dr. Church. May God keep and bless them.

(NBC News story follows)

A flier distributed at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., on Friday that promoted a book titled "The Health Hazards of Homosexuality" prompted outcry when photos surfaced on social media.

The flier was given out to attendees at the gathering where President Donald Trump spoke in complimentary tote bags that also included a sticker saying, "I don't believe the liberal media."

MassResistance, a group based Massachusetts that identifies itself as "a pro-family activist organization that educates people to help them confront the attacks on the traditional family" on its website, created the fliers to promote the book by its founder, Bryan Camenker.

A request for comment from MassResistance was not immediately returned. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated MassResistance a hate group since 2008.

According to its preface, the book "aims to alert the public — especially young people and their parents — on the serious physical and physiological health dangers inherent in adopting a 'gay,' lesbian or bisexual (GLB) identity."

The book says the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that resulted in the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide, made "sodomy a right and a legitimate basis for marriage."

It also claims homosexuality is a mental disorder and the truth is being suppressed by "the homosexual lobby and their allies," including the "radicalized" entertainment industry, press and educational establishments.

The book touts an official endorsement from a Dr. Paul Church, where he is listed as "Urologist, Asst. Clinical Professor of Surgery (part-time), Harvard Medical School Boston, Massachusetts, October 2016." A spokesperson for Harvard Medical School told NBC News that Church has not been affiliated with the school since December 2015.

Church was fired in January 2016 from his position as a urologist at Beth Israel Deaconess, one of Harvard’s affiliated hospitals, for sending anti-gay emails to staff (i.e. it seems true medical science is rejected when it doesn't fit the alt-left's narrative...hypocrites).

Trump received a standing ovation at the Value Voters summit, which was organized by the Family Research Council (FRC), when he said in his remarks Friday that Americans "don't worship government, we worship God."

He became the first sitting president to address the annual gathering of evangelical conservatives, a powerful bloc that helped propel him to the White House in November.

According to its website, the FRC "does not consider homosexuality, bi-sexuality, and transgenderism as acceptable alternative lifestyles or sexual 'preferences'; they are unhealthy and destructive to individual persons, families, and society."

Don't forget to RECOMMEND. Lets get the Truth out so that Light may shine bright in this dark place and Jesus Christ may be glorified. Even if the discussion is closed, please still RECOMMEND.

El is the canaanite god, the father of Ba'al, Molech and Asheroth. YHWH is never just "El" in the bible; if "El" is used, it is in connection with another word, like El Shaddai, or El Elyon.

Just "El" is the canaanite patriarchal demon god.

In the bible, God is referred to as "Elohim", the plural of "Eloha", not El, and not the plural of El.

If you can't tell God from a demon God made, you're gonna have a bad time.

White Nationalism will save the West.

The idea of religious tolerance is alien to Islam. Islam sees peace on earth, but only when Islam has conquered the Earth and everyone lives under Sharia Law. The adoption of multiculturalism allows insidious ideas that all cultures are equal to spread in the West. This is not so. It is patently obvious that Western Eurocentric Civilisation is far superior to anything Asia, South America or Africa can produce.

Just visit the Arabian peninsula! All machinery, automobiles, sophisticated weapons, airplanes and construction know-how has been imported. They can't even make a washing machine there.

Quote# 133047

Formative, vital experiences I missed out on whose window of opportunity has closed forever. This vital, formative experiences have no later-life substitutes.

Ages 11 - 13

This is when vital, formative experiences begin appearing. This is the cusp of puberty, when you grow from a child into a sexual being. This is when your function of a social animal extends beyond playing games. This is when deep and meaningful social bonds begin to form, and when you experience a gradual sexual awakening. This is what I missed:

• Never had a real first date or even a "date" (school-yard mock-ups)
• Never had friends of the opposite sex who you enter puberty with and develop with
• Never went to the cinema, got food with, had a sleepover with or went to a disco/party with my mixed-sex friend group
• Never cheekily took a first drag on a cigarette with my male friends
• Never had a first mouthful of wine or spirit that was promptly spat out or reluctant swallowed
• Never hugged, held hands with or kissed a girl while these experiences are new to her, and new to you
• Never had a chance to explore the beginnings of sexuality alongside another female who is also just beginning to explore sexuality

Ages 13 - 16

This is like 11 - 13 but more intense. Most of the formative experiences during these years depends on you fulfilling most or all of the 11 - 13 experiences. This is when your sexuality develops further, when you begin to experiment with substances (especially alcohol), when you have parties and when you go through the most intense part of puberty and begin your path to adulthood.

• Never had a real first relationship and its subsequent break up
• Never been helped through a break up by a mixed-sex group of friends, or helped your male and female friends through a break up
• Being able to relate to your friends and associates about relationship woes
• Experience getting drunk for the first time with your male friends first, then your mixed-sex friends. Getting drunk with male friends is optional.
• Never had a first passionate kiss.
• Never had the first below-the-waste fumblings, when you make out in the bedroom and brush your hands over the clothes of a girl's clothes
• Never seen a girl in her underwear
• Never fingered a girl or been wanked off by a girl
• Never had sex with a girl
• Never had a blowjob from a girl
• Never cheekily tried a puff of weed with your mixed-sex friends at a party
• Never took a late-night trip somewhere with your friends and just goofed around
• Never became embroiled in a love triangle, both being wanted by two girls and falling out with a male friend over a girl
• Never been to a teen-friendly night club or bar
• Never fallen in with some slightly older friends and got up to mischief with them
• Never sexted with a girl
• Never sent nudes to a girl or received nudes back
• Never experienced the excitement, anticipation and trepidation of your first real serious date.
• Never experienced the attendant fussing over your appearance, the jovial jostling of your family and friends.
• Never got drunk with a random girl at a party and made out for ages on the sofa before we both laugh about it the next day

#Ages 16 - 18

This is when you fully emerge from puberty and become an adult.

• Never been to an adult night club or bar
• Never went through the promiscuous phase when you date, kiss and fuck many women over a short space of time when your hormones are raging
• Never been through 3+ serious relationships at this point
• Never learned how to drive so you could go on trip with your buddies
• Never went on a "lads" holiday
• Never experimented with drugs such as getting battered off weed, MDMA, coke or anything else
• Never had a high one night stand with a hot as fuck wasted girl you pick up at a club
• Never had a FWB
• Never had a "best friend" who you bond with more than other people in your mixed-sex friend group
• Never volunteered with friends
• Never had your fill of women, done pretty much everything sexually you'd want to do which lays the ground for a serious LTR at some future point
• Never had a threesome or got a woman to dress up in fancy lingerie for you

I have never had and can never have these formative experiences.

I will never escape inceldom because everybody my age has completed all of these experiences and can live a normal life. I am yet to complete any of the experiences in 11 - 13. I am stuck there. Socially, I am 11 years old. But even still, even if I did do these things now, somehow, it wouldn't be the same. I'm too old. That exquisite, intoxicating and luxurious explosion of hormones, excitement, that shared enthusiasm and sense of wonder and excitement with your male and female friends as you being indulging in the splendours that life has to offer... Those moments are forever gone. They are memories that were never made, lives never lived. They are gone forever.

Even if I do escape inceldom and somehow deceive a woman into thinking I have had a normal life, I will never be happy because it will always be on my mind that I have never done these things and she has, and I will be jealous of her and will begin to hate her for it. I already hate her for it.

I am 27 and I have done nothing. I have had no social contact with anybody for any of the time it mattered. I have had no memorable experiences. I have no funny photos, old buddies who I can open a beer with and laugh about the good old days, laugh about that time when I got really upset because my first girlfriend called it off, laugh about that time after when I got drunk and had sex with a fat warpig, or got high and pulled a model.

I have done nothing. It's too late for me. I am crying as write his. I will never know the fulfillment of being with a oneitis. I will never be able to do these things. It's too late.

Life is a living decay. I am an empty shell of a man and nothing can fill me up.

I didn't have any of these experiences because women and normies would not let me. I was not sufficiently attractive to be deemed a social creature. Instead, I was used as a tool for normies to gain social points by abusing and ridiculing. I was like an arcade machine they put abuse into and got tokens out, which they could exchange for social esteem. This is why I hate them all.

This is what I mean when I say the positive reinforcement you get just by being attractive matters.

Link to peer-reviewed, heavily referenced journal detailing how social psychology during puberty, the formative years, alters neurological morphology and chemistry:


This is what I mean when I say attractive people live in a different universe to us, and how they can never understand us.

inb4 normies brigading this post saying "merrrr I only done 60% of those things"

Edit: shit grammar because I'm fucking upset

In retrospect, I sure am glad that Al Gore lost the 2000 election. His utter arrogance on AGW climate change issues probably arises from his hostility to losing that election. That arrogance now manifests itself as really fuelling the skeptic debate, and one that he is losing as evidenced by his lashing out now in the death throes of the cult movement he helped establish.

It may take 20+ years of a pause in no statistical warming of the planet for the rest of the world to come around to common sense, but I think he knows the jig is up, hence his lashing out at anyone not toeing the line in his presence. A good sign I would say. Keep it up Big Al, we need more of this desperation from the lunatic CAGW movement to prove how unhinged this religion has become.

Two Common Lies Christians Tell Themselves About Halloween

We don’t participate in any of the “bad stuff” about Halloween, just the fun aspects. Sure, you don’t let your kids dress up as witches or ghosts, but what do you tell them when they ask why their friends are in costumes that are mimicking the underworld? Or how do you answer their questions about the house across the street that is decorated like a graveyard? Do you tell them that’s okay for them, just not us? If you do, you are telling your kids that it is okay to emulate evil. I’m not taking this to an extreme folks. Kids are literal. How is a young child pretending to be a scary monster with a hatchet stuck in his head acceptable for Halloween? Or maybe you tell them it’s not okay, but we should just ignore it. Now you are teaching them to not care about the lost. It is a slippery slope, parents, very slippery.
We only participate in our church’s Fall Festival (which, ahem, just happens to fall on October 31st, and we just happen to dress up for it, and we just happen to pass out candy to kids there). Seriously? Honestly, this practice gets me more upset than any other part of a Christian participating in this holiday. What about 1 John 2:15 or Romans 12:2? I see no reason to conform ourselves to this world just so our children don’t feel “left out” on October 31st. Guess what? God calls us specifically to be left out, to be set apart (holy) for Him, every day of the year. I’m pretty sure Jesus and His disciples were the odd ducks in the neighborhood. I can not justify celebrating a pagan holiday with my pagan neighbors as being set apart, and I certainly can not justify a pretend, watered-down, Christian-ified (yes, I made that word up) version. Come on, Christians, be different and feel honored that you are! Use this night to teach your children why we are different, why we are not participating in Halloween, and how freeing that can be.

The Society was formed in 1991 to defend Stalin and his work on the basis of fact and to refute the capitalist, revisionist, opportunist and Trotskyist propaganda directed against him.

Stalin’s name is synonymous with communism, the October revolution, and the overthrow of capitalist exploitation and imperialist tyranny. For this reason, the international bourgeoisie have spearheaded their attacks on working and oppressed peoples by slandering Stalin and the Soviet Union.

They have employed a variety of tactics to this end over the last 90 years, but have been guided to a large extent by dissidents who betrayed the Soviet people, most notably Leon Trotsky. The powerful US Based Hearst press, sympathetic to Hitler, was a pioneer in these methods, but the rest of the capitalist worlds media and political elites have not lagged behind.

Lady Checkmate's headline: "Persecution: Christian printer refuses services to LGBTQ activist, says he doesn't want to 'make pressure worse'"

Obviously Christians are facing persecution and pressure from the alt-left, all over the world. Please pray for Nigel. God is faithful.

(FOX News story follows)

A Christian printer in Britain reportedly refused to print business cards for a transgender diversity expert, claiming taking up the order would go against his religious views.

Nigel Williams denied his printing services to Joanne Lockwood, a consultant at transgender diversity firm SEE Change Happen, which is aimed at offering advice to businesses on inclusion of LGBTQ staff, The Sunday Times reported.

Lockwood tried to get his company’s promotional materials printed at Williams’ firm, but he refused, saying taking up the contract would “make pressure worse” for other Christians.

“The new model of diversity is used (or misused) to marginalize (or indeed discriminate against) Christians in their workplaces and other parts of society if they do not subscribe to it,” Williams wrote to the transgender diversity expert, explaining his decision to turn down the chance to work together.

He added: “Although I’m quite sure you have no intention of marginalizing Christians it would weigh heavily upon me if through my own work I was to make pressure worse for fellow Christians.”

Lockwood, who is a man who dresses as a woman since January, claims he was “gobsmacked” by the refusal to perform services, telling the Times: “I was not expecting a lecture. I disbelieved this could happen in 2017. I have been distraught and cried and my wife consoled me.”

“I think a point of principle is at stake. He wanted to make a point to me deliberately for his own motives. I have been the victim of some discrimination,” he added.

The printer received a backing from the Christian Institute, a group that previously supported a Christian family bakery in Northern Ireland who were sued for refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding.

The Institute slammed the incident, saying it was “chilling and unnecessary” and has similarities to the same-sex wedding cake lawsuit.

“It is a fundamental tenet of free speech and freedom of belief that people should not be forced to help promote causes flatly contrary to their own deeply held views,” the group told the Times.

Don't forget to RECOMMEND. Lets get the Truth out so that Light may shine bright in this dark place and Jesus Christ may be glorified. Even if the discussion is closed, please still RECOMMEND.

Lady Checkmate:
RayTheDevil, I just received word that you've pledged to troll, target and harass me and our community with a pathetic troll (Peewee) who is using his own sock accounts to continue the targeted harassment (the same targeted harassment) he's been doing for years that has gotten him nowhere...you know the same trolling sock I warned you about above, but you've decided to join him as he encourages others to target and harass me (Disqus ToS violation and a violation of our community guidelines). Obviously our community is not a good fit for you. Get help.

You're mistaken, I was invited to join the crusade against you but refused. This was before I found I'd been banned on News Network, for what I'm not sure. I was not trolling, I made a simple and true statement that the owners and the participants on [your] channel tend to drive off any opposing viewpoint.

Lady Checkmate:
LOL. "Crusade"? Are you serious? It's a pathetic, lonely troll operating his own socks (literally talking to himself) because no real CMs take Peewee seriously. His last sock, which he used to do the same thing (literally-even created a channel to troll with) was deleted for targeted harassment. To clarify, you vowed to join the targeted harassment "should you feel troubled enough by any of this to feel unkindly toward me" and if the sock troll harassing me "has not settled this" you will "join the fight". The only thing I respect less than psychotic, obsessed, stalking trolls using socks is cowards who double speak and then deny their intent. FYI- targeted harassment and encouraging others to target and harass a CM is a violation of Disqus ToS and a violation of our community guidelines. *I stand by my comments on him in the above OP...feel free to read them if you haven't. The next time you decide to "join" in on targeted harassment make sure you're not being led around by a troll operating socks hoping to find someone, any real person (non sock) to help them troll and harass others.

I did read, I didn't see anything I did as being targeted harassment, and didn't realize that's what he was doing. I thought he meant going to management at Disqus.

Peewee is literally insane. He knows he has nothing and so he trolls using different sock accounts. All mods deal with trolling...I'm not special. I could name several that have had obsessed stalkers for years who have done the same or similar thing to them. He's silly enough to think his trolling bothers me. He's a joke, a punchline who is nothing more than an obsessed troll that uses multiple socks. Real users (not socks) don't take him seriously, not sure why you chose to, but oh well. I still wish you well. I have to step away so I have to close this. For more information, please read the OP, links, threads and the comments on those threads above. It will tell you everything you need to know about Peewee. Enjoy your evening hon.

I repeat, I haven't joined anything.

Lady Checkmate:
I understand, but I'm not into Disqus drama Ray. I'm really laid back and simply run our community as a safe space for Christians and conservatives (liberals are welcome as long as they respect that and comply with our community guidelines). In fact, one of the ladies that posts in our community is a leftie and I simply adore her and I don't allow anyone to abuse her while she's in our community. I can't be bothered by a pathetic sock troll who has all but admitted he's obsessed with me, stalks me and has had at least one of his socks deleted from the entire platform. We lean right, by choice. We're Christian-friendly by choice. I never visit left channels out of respect for their channel owners and mods. I know I'm too right of center for most of them. I've found that only trolls show up and demand that a channel changes their guidelines for them. I don't expect that from other channels nor their mods and no one should expect that from us.

Ok, it wasn't Silas Jennings (I think that's the leader {Peewee}) that actually paged me, it was CMG something or other.

Lady Checkmate:
Yes. He is Peewee...they are all sock accounts he uses (i.e., those accounts are all operated by the same psychotic troll). He's called Peewee.
I recommend you read the information I sent you or not, but I have to go. This will be my last comment to you this evening. I apologize, but I just don't have time to keep repeating the same information. Enjoy your night.
To clarify, earlier you posted the following comment, completely off topic, filled with untruths, and sent it seemed to insult us because our community is conservative and Christian friendly (note you were not banned at that time):

[quoting Ray]: You don't see any hypocrisy in posting to a channel that regularly chases off people with opposing viewpoints?

The trick-or-treat ritual was practiced by the Druids and their followers in medieval times.

The Druids went from castle to castle doing exactly the same thing. They also demanded a ‘treat’, however, this demand was for a young woman who could be offered as a human sacrifice in a Satanic ritual. The Druids were known as men of Oak and they demanded blood sacrifices. These men were so controlled by Satanic forces that they had strange and frightening powers.

If the ‘treat’ (the young woman) pleased the Druids, they would light a candle made of human fat and insert it in a Jack-O-Lantern to protect those inside the castle from being killed by demons.

When some of the families could not meet the demands of the Druids then it was time for a ‘trick’. A hexagram was drawn on the front door of the dwelling, and it was said that Satan or his demons would kill someone in the household through fear that night.

The spellbinding beat of the druid music would fill the night as the ceremony began. The men would assault their victim and then brutally sacrifice her to their gods.(1)

Under the Noahic covenant the Christian God sanctions the restraint of violence using force, whereas the god of islam wants the whole world converted to itself either by persuasion or by force

2. What are the physical symptoms of being affected by ghosts?

We have categorized the symptoms for easy referral.

2.1. The five sense organs
Foul taste in the mouth.
Experience of eyes being pulled inside, irritation in the eyes, etc.
Dryness of lips, mouth and throat.
Due to the Raja-Tama in the ghosts a sticky layer is formed on the face and body of the affected person.
Oily skin.
Rashes on the skin.
Eerie feeling of being touched.
2.2. Pain
Pinprick sensation.
Headaches and migraines.
Severe backache, body ache and inability to move.
Experience of strangulation.
2.3. Symptoms related to the nine body openings
When in the proximity of a sattvik influence, the ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) leave the body through any of the nine openings, i.e. two eyes, two nostrils, two ears, mouth, penis/vagina and anus. The person may experience as if gas is going out of any of these openings or one may experience cough, yawning, burping, sneezing, etc. as per the opening involved.

2.4. Digestive system
Not allowing the person to have his meals: Loss of appetite, nausea on sight of food, feeling better after getting away from food.
Sharpened appetite, frequent hunger and having heavy meals: The Absolute Fire Principle (Tejtattva) is required to digest food. As man consists predominantly of the absolute Earth Principle (Pruthvitattva), he cannot digest a lot of food. But if he is possessed by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) he can do so. As the ghosts consist of the Absolute Air Principle (Vayutattva) they can digest the food by using the Absolute Fire Principle. Refer to the article on the Absolute Cosmic Principles (Panchatattva).
2.5. Reproductive system
Inability to have children.
Recurring miscarriages.
2.6. Accidents
Electric shock
Domestic accidents such as heated oil flying from the frying pan
Repeated vehicle accidents in a certain location
2.7. Motor organs
Fidgeting and restlessness due to increase in basic Raja subtle-component
Contorted movements
2.8. Makings sounds
Making moaning and weird sounds and not remembering anything afterwards.
Making animal sounds.
The ghost speaking through the possessed person in a voice of the opposite sex.
2.9. Effect on vital energy
Vital energy (Pra?a-shakti) is the life sustaining energy of the body and is subtle.

Vital energy in a spiritually evolved person and that in a person not spiritually evolved

Percentage of vital energy
1. Spiritually evolved person 130
2. Person not spiritually evolved 100

Amount of vital energy according to the extent of distress by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.)

Extent of distress Amount of vital energy (percentage)
5 95
10 90
20 70
30 50
40* 30**
* In the present times generally the maximum distress possible is 40%

Distress will include both getting affected and possession by negative energies

** The reduction in Vital energy is because it is utilized in fighting the ghosts. When it decreases below 30%, the person dies.

I am a 63-year-old housewife from the countryside. Before I found Falun Dafa, I'd been suffering from heart disease, migraines, bronchitis, cystitis, and gynecological problems. Every day was a struggle, and I had to be hospitalized a few times every year.

After learning Falun Dafa in February 2000, all my ailments disappeared. I was a brand new person, full of energy. I understood the purpose of life, and my xinxing was constantly improving.

One day in the end of November 2014, I found a small lump in my left breast. I told another practitioner the next day. She told me, “Dafa is omnipotent. Don't think about it. Just study the Fa. Believe in Dafa and Master.”

But my mind was not at peace. A few days later, my breast began to ache, then my back. My husband, son, and daughter-in-law urged me to go to the hospital. My sister-in-law and neighbors also heard the news and urged me to go as well. They warned me of all the terrible things that could happen if I did not seek medical treatment. However, after listening to them, my mind became clear. I had a strong thought – truly believe in Master and Dafa.

My son called a taxi for us to go to the hospital and declared that he would tie me up and carry me there if I refused to go. I had no choice but to go with them. But my heart did not waiver. After several tests, the doctor asked us to wait for the result at home. Two days later, my son told me that it was breast cancer and I should have an operation.

I had a calm talk with my family. I told them: In the past, I was unable to fulfill my duties as a wife or a mother because of my poor health; but Dafa gave me back my healthy body. Since then, I've been able to do farm work and house work, take care of my grandson; our family became happier. I told them that Dafa gave our family so much, and it would see me through this as well.

During the following few days, it rained a lot, thus they did not think of going to the hospital. I kept studying the Fa and doing the exercises. At the same time, I kept my thought strong – believing in Master and Dafa.

On October 17, 2015, my breast became so painful that even my clothes touching it made it hurt badly. It swelled badly too. My husband asked me if I needed some painkiller. I said no. Instead, I asked him to give me Zhuan Falun.

I held Zhuan Falun with both hands and said to Master, “I will believe in Master and Dafa steadfastly. I will never waver until the last minute of my life.” I was not afraid and my heart was unusually peacefully even though I was in so much pain.

That night, I felt that I was fighting death the entire night. I did not feel sleepy and my mind was clear. My husband was watching me, but could not tell what was going on. Time seemed to stand still.

At daybreak, I resumed studying the Fa. By the afternoon, the pain subsided. Since then, my condition became better and better each day, until I was competently healed.

My husband witnessed the whole process. He gets excited when talking about it, “Master is mighty! Dafa is miraculous and truly extraordinary!” My son, daughter-in-law and sister-in-law were all amazed at my full recovery.

My story spread throughout our village and to neighboring villages as well. Now my son and another villager have taken up the practice. More people have said they would also like to learn Falun Dafa.

(When this fundie says ALF he means the Animal Liberation Front, a terrorist animal rights group)

ALF is actually freeing animals today at threat to their freedom and future. What are you doing, besides acting like this is an issue about people's perceptions of you by association? To criticize ALF militants you have to actually be doing something worthy to make your opinion have weight.

Opposing organized injustice that is legal is what every social justice movement has done before they succeeded. It would be nice if abusing animals was not legal, but it is.

[In the highly probable event that you did not search to see what Tiktaalik, Ambulocetus, and Archaeopteryx all share in common, I will tell you; They are all transitional species leading to amphibians, whales, and birds respectively.]

a big call,using fancy greek/latin words to define arbitrary intermediates ,such imaginings do nothing for the truth seeker,they appear to be lonely exceptions to a consistent pattern of fossil disconfirmation, in your mind a few poor candidates for ancestor status are enough to save a theory that presumes a worldwide history of continual evolutionary transformation, such thinking can only appeal to the most limited and stunted of minds
