Geez, be happy you’re rid of her.

Oh definitely, things always work out for the best.   I just find it amazing that whenever a couple splits up there's always a female victim that totally got taken advantage of.  You never hear of it happening any other way.

Facebook cannot die soon enough... Truly evil what it has turned into.  I get it's usefulness for running a business, or staying in touch with family, but man the negatives greatly outweigh the positives of using that garbage.

Sadly there are few alternatives, and most social media companies share similar views and practices...

Ozark Anglers and an increasingly rare trip over to The Middle Bass Boat site is the only social media I have left. Facebook was just too much of a time waster, and was addictive enough for me that I gave it the deep six over two years ago. Amazing how much better my relationships with my wife and family are.

At the same time, I also ditched my smart phone and went back to a dumb phone that just does text and phone. It will also hotspot my IPad, which I normally carry with me in a backpack on work days. If I need the net for some reason, I have it, but I spend a TON less time on it given that it's not just at the tips of my fingers 24/7.

I realize I will lose some of ya with this, but I do find it interesting, that what separated Adam and Eve from God's original plan, was eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge. It is my opinion that the most destructive force in modern culture, is the Internet and social media. We are becoming a world of phone zombies, sacrificing true, real life relationships with everyone we love for screen time. It's bad, and only getting worse. Watch parents of toddlers ignore their kids at any park and shush them to look at a screen, if you need just one small example.

 

Now turn your iPhone over and look at the logo.

 

amazing how some things never change, isn't it?

Right.  At least we actually learned something from Humpty Dumpty.  We no longer set eggs on a wall, and we no longer send horses to perform medical procedures.  Had God given them thumbs then the story could have had a much happier ending. 😟 

But he didn't. And why? Because that's  just the way he planned it.  Humpty was supposed to perish, and so was Adam and Eve. And so it goes....    The fruit could have easily been cultivated out of reach, and I never understood who was there before Adam to teach the serpent communication skills....and why can't we teach them to talk anymore?  God didn't even want the snake to talk in the first place.....thus the punishment for doing so.   

Crazy crazy crazy business that folks just can't let go of.   Blows the mind. Everything gets related to a fairy tale.

I was looking at you, Wrench, when I said I was gonna lose some folks...lol

I'm not advocating we ignore science, or all subscribe to a "earth is 6000 years old because that's how I interpret the Bible" world view. Knowledge isn't inherently evil, and neither is the Internet.

I do find the fact that the logo hasn't changed in a few thousand years interesting though...

It's marketing man.  Feeding a very large family from the hallucinations of generations of brainwashed individuals.  

It would indeed be interesting....if it were real.  

The interesting part is that it continues to work.  Look, with all of their intelligence, how easily some can be steered.  Votes gathered, and doctor misdiagnosis ignored.

The part that I find most interesting is that the only time I read of Jesus showing REAL ANGER, was when the religious folk of the day, turned the temple into a place of business. 

There is an entire multimillion, probably multi billion dollar worldwide evangelical industry today, which trades mainly in anger and outrage. Most of which, feeds back through media company corporate consolidation to large companies run by folks who are decidedly un-Christian in belief and actions.

I know first hand from my involvement in the "Christian" record business, that the accent is firmly on "business" and the "Christian" side of things is just a label, like "country" or "rock" or "R&B", as well as know how hard megachurches work at marketing to get their slice of the evangelical pie. 

I personally think that those who have an understanding of their faith as real, and not myth, would do well to take a step back from the media industry surrounding it and refocus on practicing it on a smaller, more personal level of showing love and care to those who directly cross their path. 

 

Back to the fakebook, umm I mean Facebook topic tho- I don't want to hurt any feelings here, because I'd gladly share a boat with any OAF member, on any day. The respect folks show for each other and their beliefs around here is amazing, and a true testament to the character that Phil runs this place with!

I believe what I believe because that’s what I believe. I don’t have a problem with what other people believe as long as they don’t try to tell me what I need to believe. That part has been hard for some, especially my mother. 

Again if Facebook, Fakebook, Farcebook, or whatever has been or is a problem for you then you are doing it wrong. But I have zero issues with unfriending people. Friends, family, doesn’t matter. It’s my feed and I like it clean and pleasant. Not much drama at all and when there is a dust up I just roll on by.
