Oh, and good ole Angelina is the sole inheritor of a vast fortune, but no record exists. Right.

Oh, and good ole Angelina somehow evades HM customs without fail and has imported 65-70 corpses into the UK. But it's a secret, sssshhhhh. Maybe she used a superdonkey, like jebus entering jerubsalem.

That was me, abaddon. I checked births, marriages, deaths, censuses, electoral rolls and phone numbers - I even paid for some credits to do advanced searches of the electoral roll!

Fair play, then. I just couldn't dredge up the enthusiasm to go through that old thread to find who it was.

Still got those results handy?

As I think of it, did not Akhenaten nail the whole Reynilindindindindindi.... thing also?

I must learn how to stop spelling Reynilindindindindindindi....dammit!

ETA: Oh, yeah, didn't Reynilindindindindindindindindi....{stoppit} morph into Cleopatra at some point?

I have the results in the sense of there being no results - one mention of a family called Imden on the 1911 census which turned out to be a transcription error for Durden (separately confirmed with birth certificates), no Imdens in the BMD index, no Imdens on the electoral roll, none in the phone book. I think it's safe to say that Imden is just a Chinese brand of mobile phone and not the name of a giantess living in a mountainous region (!) of England eight hours away from a city (!!) who makes regular forays to foreign climes in order to dig up corpses (!!!) and import them to the UK without the Border Agency or HMRC noticing (!!!!) which she then keeps in her tiny mountain home. Oh yes, and the corpses are incorruptible (!!!!!) and also light up when the 'spirit' enters them (facepalm, as exclamation marks are no longer sufficient).

Yeah, PC tried to say that Reneliniyindi had a connection with Cleopatra of Jerusalem, who in turn he thought had a connection with Queen Cleopatra of Egypt. Or maybe it was the other way around. There was some muddle over the family tree of Herod too; PC had the marriages wrong.

I have to wonder why some posters go to so much trouble to debunk PC's claims. It's clear PC isn't going to take a blind bit of notice, and no-one else gave them any credence to start with.

Perhaps they have a thing about people lying and are so concerned they investigate those false claims.

Yes, Agatha was superb hunting out the Imden family.
Was it Tim Callahan who pointed out the letter "R" doesn't exist in the language of the Two Lands?
And yes, PC tried to morph the imaginary princess into Cleopatra, Herod's daughter, IIRC.

Indeed, and I've done a fair bit of that myself on this and PC's other threads, in case you hadn't notice. I just had a "what's the point?" moment.

If there was any chance of PC paying any attention at all, or the remotest possibility that anyone reading his threads might take his ridiculous claims seriously, it would be worth the effort of tracking down the evidence to debunk them. But it seems obvious to me that there is zero chance of either.

Except JREF, the Internet doesn't know anything about "Ama prophecies." I guess they should be ignored rather than debunked. In their face value, there is really nothing challenging to go against.

The challenge isn't in debunking his drivel, but in making him realize and acknowledge that it's been debunked. The former is child's play, while the latter is nigh-impossible, but still fun to make an attempt at, much like a rigged carnival game.

According to the list posted, there is a reason for the cancelation other then "parallelism" with the canceled 1944 Olympics.

5. The London Olympics will be cancelled due to the outbreak of WWIII (and onwards throughout that thread)

If you look at the official name of the event

Games of the XXX Olympiad

then you also see three St. Andrew's crosses, and there were three guys crucified - one of them was Jesus. If XXX are meant to be croses as well, an event must take place, some hoopla, that involves St. Andrew's cross and the Olympics in London. Like this:
Quote:
The crazy ruling means the St Andrew’s Cross will NOT be flown at Hampden — with the Union Jack taking pride of place instead.
http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage.../4340546/.html

There is only 0.8% of reality that we can see and realize. That's not that bad considering that we come from apes.

I agree with pakeha that there have been some very educational subthreads in this overall disaster. That this education has gone over PC's head is sad but only incidental. And, like Stomatopoda said, it's kinda fun. Now that epix has joined the thread, the amusement coefficient has gone even higher.

See, if it wasn't for me joining, you wouldn't even know that Ama doesn't exist - there is not one link to that person on the Internet. PC made everything up and you were debunking prophecies that no one made.

The only prediction coming true was the result of the November 2012 presidential election. (ObAma.)

For me, partly it's SIWOTI and partly because I learn things along the way (such as the genealogy stuff). PeaceCrusader's mind is so firmly closed to reality that nothing will convince him to renounce his false prophet; if his God appeared to him to tell him Ms Alvaran is a fraud he'd probably argue with the deity rather than face reality.

I do micro lending on lendwithcare.org and one of the countries where they are active is the Philippines. Hopefully, pulling more entrepreneurs out of poverty will increase educational opportunities there, and people like yrreg and PC will become fewer and farther between.

And it's fun. I like debating religion in this outpost of the internet, it's not something I'd ever mention or even think about otherwise, given that I live in a largely secular country.

Epix, we've been pointing out to Peace Crusader that Ama doesn't exist for ages. both in this thread, the one(s) before it in this subforum as well as the Olympic Games thread in GS&P. Perhaps you should read the threads before commenting that you are the first to do something, you are just the latest in a long line of people to point out the obvious.

What do you mean by "to completely mask profanity?" We must enjoy a complete freedom of speech guaranteed by the Bible and therefore I shall use my God-given right to unmask it:

Ama => Atheist

Oh, Lord! I regret my action. Please mask again.

Be nice. Let epix get acquainted with PC. The previous threads went on forever, I doubt Epix has had time to read all of those. Or should I say have his brain fried by those.

Or should I say read enough until he could have no more?

Or he could...lost will to make excuses.

I didn't read everything (sense of self-preservation), but I know from my experience that if links to the claims are missing, the forum folks lose interest. Since the thread went happily and speedily on, I assumed that due to the elevated debunking spirit, posters forgot to check on the source.

God doesn't have his web pages and that's why the number of atheist increased after the Internet had been invented.

Don't worry about your sense of self preservation and take the time to read the whole thread. You'll discover the loony of Aristeo soon enough....and maybe you can converse with Aristeo about the birth date of Jesus Christ.

Coincidences in my life - Part 1

20130109.1435

Why will I give up my faith? Learned to pickup what will be good for your soul and discard what will be evil.

Beside proving the revelation of Ama that Jesus Christ was born on May 23 and died on August 17, coincidences in my life happened. These coincidences triggerred me to not doubt Ama in 1994. I said that the events in my life will not have happened had it not been to God. I will serialize those coincidences. There are six parts that were published on the Internet but there are more which I am withholding until the events happened.

Here is Part 1.

Well, Aristeo, your version of "good for your soul" seems to be identical to My definition of "completely out of touch with reality." Funny, that.

This is the name of the computer fourth generation database program that I used when I worked in Saudi Arabia (1985-1988) and at BHP Steel in Australia (1989-1992).
Artemis is also the name of a hilarious, promiscuis character in the television show, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

I'm honestly not sure what your post about names and cars is even supposed to mean.

And an as yet unseen level of stupid claims has begun.

I suppose everybody else has noticed that every time we get a PC fail, his follow ups get more bizarre and unbelievable. We are now in the land of the improbability drive

So all that you do is post cut and paste spam now?

Stop spreading your garbage, liar.

4. Echo

OK, you've convinced me. I'll keep reading, learning, laughing, and maybe even occasionally contributing.

OK. Now god sends you encrypted messages about pagan gods and you think it's the real deal.

I'm sorry PC, but hmm... t’es bête à manger du foin. My respect for you has vanished.

epix, we've discussed that a number of times over various threads.
Keep in mind PC has been posting here since 2007, when he even tried to do the MDC, which you can also read, if you like.

My thought exactly. epix is only beginning to savour the PC experience.

Here is Part 1.

All the names below—Aristaeus, Artemis, Apollo, and Echo—are names in Greek mythology which have been associated with me. Those in parentheses are quoted from The World Book Dictionary.

1. Aristaeus – “the son of Apollo and the water nymph Cyrene, famous as a keeper of bees”. He received instruction from the Muses in the arts of healing and prophecy. He is the guardian of herds and fields and was represented as a young man dressed like a shepherd and sometimes carrying a sheep.
My name is Aristeo. It came from the Hispanized Greek god Aristaeus which may be from the Greek word aristo meaning ‘best’.
2. Artemis – “the goddess of the hunt, of the forests, of wild animals, and of the moon. She was the twin sister of Apollo and was called Diana by the Romans.”
This is the name of the computer fourth generation database program that I used when I worked in Saudi Arabia (1985-1988) and at BHP Steel in Australia (1989-1992).
3. Apollo – “the god of the sun, poetry, music, prophecy, healing, and archery. The Greeks and Romans considered Apollo the highest type of youthful, manly beauty.” He is the son of Leto and twin brother of Artemis.
This is the name of the model of the family’s second car in Australia (1994 to present, 2012). It is made by Holden (General Motors) and is a rebadged Toyota Camry.
4. Echo – “a nymph who pined away with love for Narcissus until only her voice was left”.
This is the name of the model of the second-hand Toyota economy car that I used in commuting between home and work at the Department of Defence at Bulimba in Brisbane (2006-2008), a distance of about 40 km each way. It is still running and has been lent to my daughter in Melbourne in 2011.
After I bought the car in 1986, I realized that I am just echoing the Holy Spirit, that is why from then on, I say that I am the ‘Echo of the Holy Spirit’. I recommended the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) by our team in the Department of Defence in Sydney (2004-2006) for correct spelling of purchase order number, names of people, streets and suburbs, etc. Echo is IPA’s code name of the letter E.
See what I mean?
PC is awesome.
Who else could claim the name of a second-hand car is evidence of a medium's claims?

No, wait....I think I see a Big Mac in this thread's future.

We've been telling PC that "Ama" doesn't exist for months, possibly years.
