    Why ever make the sacrifices to become a viable chess player if you don't believe the royal game requires skill? Stoker's op quote suggests the perfect irony, Trev. We live and breathe and have our being in a lost and dying world... and thus has it ever been.

    Apostasy in the church was prophesied as far back as 1917, one morning in Fátima, Portugal.

    It's nothing new, nor surprising.

    I think it was more than 95 years ago that it was prophesied?

    Say, isn't that the ratio of pedofiles in the Catholic church?

    Edit: How does an atheist preist know when it is time to go to bed? It is when the little hand meets the big hand. 😛

    Yes, but I'm just citing a relatively recent event that is an unassailable fact.

    Because somewhere around 50% (most likely more) of this forum wouldn't believe anything written in Daniel, Isaiah, Matthew or Revelation.

    This would be funny if it weren't so sad.
