Dr. Jones -- There is no tirade going on here at all.  I just speak very 
plainly.  I mean every single word I've said.  I can defend whatever I've 
said.  I'm making my points as clearly and sharply as I possibly can in 
order to get through the lethargy and complacency and delusion.   Same way 
with people believing in a spinning, rotating earth.  You can't hint around 
or beat around the bush.  You point out the truth and it hurts.  I will 
guarantee you that NASA thinks what you write about them are also tirades.

I am just holding Bob to his own words and statements, to his own positions 
that he's taken.  I've told him, fine, this is what you believe.  Well, it's 
hypocritical because if you're going to be consistent in what you say, then 
what about this?

In other words, I'm trying to get him and anyone else reading this to THINK 
THINGS THROUGH.   People who go about speaking their minds on things they 
have not thought through are subject to being found wrong.

That's why I don't get dogmatic on things I've not throught through.  I told 
you, I will defend the Word of God even before I defend you.  This is 
relevant to your forum on geocentrism.  Namely, we need God's Word for our 

You need someone like me and Gordon Bane to defend God's Word.   His Word is 
not hidden in piles of manuscripts of all sorts and kinds.  Rather, it is 
revealed, all nicely organized, and under two covers.  It's called the King 
James Bible, and we have it because God is ABLE TO PRESERVE HIS WORD.  And 

Nobody would think of revising and improving or changaing or updating the 
so-called "original manuscripts."  But people presume think the KJB needs 
improving and changing.  This in spite of the fact that Jesus said:

Matthew 5:18   For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one 
jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Mark 13:31  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass 

Luke 16:17  And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle 
of the law to fail.

Luke 21:33  Heaven and earath shall pass away: but MY WORDS shall not pass 

Matthew 4:4 (Jesus to Satan):   It is WRITTEN,  (i.e. Jesus believed in 
Scripture, so why can't we?)  Man shall not live by bread alone, but BY 
EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Maatthew 13:19  When any one hearth the WORD of the kingdom, and 
understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that 
which was sown in his heart (i.e. the Word).  This is he which received seed 
by the way side.

Mark 4:13-20  And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then 
will ye know ALL parables?  The sower soweth the WORD.  And these are they 
by the way side, where the WORD is sown; but when they have heard, Satan 
cometh immediately, and taketh away the WORD that was sown in their hearts. 
And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they 
have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; And have no root 
in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or 
persecution ariseth for the WORD's sake, immediately they are offended.  And 
thse are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the WORD, And the 
cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other 
things entering in, choke the WORD, and it becometh unfruitful.  And these 
are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the WORD, and receive 
it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty,and some an hundred.

(This same parable is in Matthew, Mark and Luke)
