A very good (Christian) friend of mine sent me this link and asked me to check it out. He's curious to know if the Chinese character aspect of it is just a load of rubbish, or if it does have some substance. I'm curious what those of you who understand the etymology of Chinese characters better that I do think about it.

Thanks

:fume: LOAD OF CRAP :fume:

OK, JUST from the Hebrew actually, the verse he quotes at 1:46 from Genesis 2:7 where he asks "who has this secret "person" since it was not adam", is a load of shit, for in the Hebrew it says haADAM האדם(the adam...ie the man, ie adam) so thats point one.

Now onto Chinese: at 2:30 he uses the character for demon/ghost gui, 鬼 as proof for the "secret alive person" (who in Hebrew is Adam btw) as a reference to the snake being the devil. The notion that the snake was the devil is a MUCH later Christian interpretation of the biblical story. Ancient Jewish writers did not say this and even Medieval Jewish commentators (who were making up stuff just as much as the Christians were) quote this interpretation and chuck it out the window.

According to the story in genesis, Snake in garden does NOT equal devil...the snake was this weirdass creature, but not the devil.

So far this guy is wrong on all accounts, I can't keep watching this it is so idiotic. If anyone wants to tear apart the rest of it that would be fun!

I'm no psychologist, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a guy who calls himself King James and has his initials and "Vivat Rex" -- Latin for "Long live the king" -- on his custom-made Nike jacket, and has CHOSEN 1 tattooed across his back and WITNESS tattooed on one calf and HISTORY on the other calf might have a big ego. It is an ego borne of insecurity, and this is why he left for Miami in the first place: He wanted things to be easier. He wanted Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh at his side and South Beach a short drive away. That is the fundamental disconnect between James and Cleveland fans. They gave up on easy a long time ago.
