    Default ALL is Vanity

    All Is Vanity1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
    2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
    3 What profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun?
    4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
    5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
    6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
    7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
    8 All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
    9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
    10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
    11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

    When I first read this verse,about 40 years ago ,IT seemed so profound and has greatly influenced the decisions i've made in my life-YET now THE history channel is running a program saying King David never existed ?
    And now as i look at this it seems to be an amalgam of several religious and cultural beliefs-
    I wonder if I've been hoodwinked again ?
    Anyone else have any thoughts about The Preacher and this quote ??
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Call me a kook, call me a conspiracy theorist, heck call me anything you want. But all of this has been predicted. Of course the History channel is trying to convince us that King David never existed because if he didn't then Jesus never did either. They are going at religion in this country like I've never seen before. Or at least I've never noticed before. Remember communist Russia? They weren't allowed to worship, the STATE was atheist and so it was.

    It's just another way to keep people from revolting once they own us. Did anyone notice that they are trying to pass a law where farmers and anyone driving "farm equiptment" needs to have a tractor-trailer CDL? It's happening folks. Why? So that farmers go bankrupt trying to get licenses and then the insurance for CDL's. When that happens the government will swoop in and offer to buy the land. Why? So that they own us and our non-biblical lives and minds. Of course, all of this happens after they collapse the economy.

    Q,
    I agree in a lot of what you are saying yet this passage (I think) would reflect on Judaism as well-are the ubiquitous ''THEY'' trying to destroy ALL religions ?
    As to your CDL and farm reference . Most of this has already transpired-see HARVEST of RAGE-I don't know a small farmer who did not go under in the 90's and sold their land and equipment for 10 cents on the dollar.
    In these times of record foreclosures on HOMES as well as farms I don't see how anyone cold not see an unseen hand in the works. When BULLDOZING is preferred to foreclosure-see Cleveland-something is very much amiss.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    ODH, I tried to reply with a quote but I am impatient and I still have the circle thing indicating that something is not done or whatever the hell it means.

    Anyway, lol for the comment. I knew someone would do it. But, if you really do think its bull, look up AGENDA 21. You could google "agenda 21 farm equiptment" or whatever you want to google. I just suggest you look it up. That maple tree that you have a tap on (I'm jealous) may not be yours' pretty soon. "A person with intelligence who chooses not to use it is no different than an animal with no intelligence."

    Not sure who said that last quote, but it's true.

    OK, so for fun I did some google searches on Agenda 21 and guess what type of web sites popped up? That right, crazy nutty conspiracy ones... it is often hard to tell the difference between legitimate sites and ones that are just out there, not so in this case.
    No one is coming to confiscate my maple treees, the one world government is not about to take over, no one is coming to take away my guns.
    You need to get a grip. I believe we in US have more freedom than any people at any other time in history.

    Article 6 opens the doors for a UN takeover. A UN treaty supersedes our very own constitution.



    This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

    Granted I know very little about old testment scholarship, but I remember hearing that many scholars and archeologists do believe in the existence of King David. The debate is more about how powerful his kingdom really was- was he a medieval-style king with a palace, laws and taxes as is indicated in the Old Testament or was he more of a sucessful warlord?

    I'm pretty sure the majority of scholars in the field believe Jesus existed as an influential teaccher who was crucified. Of course, a lot of them don't believe he rose from the dead.
