comment Was 'σκύβαλον' (skubalon) profanity?
It is like Queen Victoria, the Empress of India. With the advent of Victorian age, many ideas and expressions considered acceptable became profane. With the advent of Pauline theology, I guess similar phenomenon happened in the mid-east and Roman empire.

It's impossible to make a point on this issue because profanity as we understand today is highly correlated to obscenity and vulgarity - which are considered art forms and elegance in those days. The elegance is how well you could articulate your obscenities. So to be profanely elegant or elegantly profane would have been a very commendable skill then.

comment Why do many chinese Bibles translate “Logos” in John 1:1 as 道 (Dao)?
youtube.com/watch?v=DA-AkJzpKmg&feature=related - I have been very intrigued by the claims of this pastor. So I googled the pastor's name and found that that he was currently under investigation for misuse of church funds - huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/26/…

comment Who are the “divine beings” in Psalm 82?
Zechariah Sitchin and the History Channel propounds the belief they are aliens. Isaac Asimov suggested the use of the plural in various passages signify a transition/power struggle from/between paganistic pantheism to/with monotheistic Israel - as evidenced by the ideological struggle between northern and southern kingdoms that had lay nascent until the death of Solomon.

comment Who are the morning stars in Job 38:7?
I think Isaiah 14:12 describes Nebuchanezar not any devil or satan. How did you reach that conclusion that it refers to any so-called fallen angels?

swasheck, the author of that link is horridly offensive. He lumps together "earth-worshippers, tree-huggers, witches, Democrats" as if they were altogether dirty words. Did he mean to say, that Republicans, Libertarians and pro-lifers have no business hugging trees because his gospel believes that decent people do not and should not be ecologically conservative and he probably thinks excessive human activities do not kill born/unborn babies worldwide thro increased global warming.
