Incidentally the whole of Sin Feign have that same look: creepy, shifty, motionless faces given away by twitchy evil eye movements, masquerading as totally reasonable and put-upon by the injustice of "the British government", a compulsive mantra which they must include within at least every third sentence. Martin has "murderer" written across his brow - in dripping blood. Of course all those deaths are "very regrettable", meaning: "I killed them, even though I won't admit it, because I wasn't getting my own way". After all, it was "war".
And doesn't Martin "repeatedly deny" having been IRA commander? Not that the denial has ever rung even remotely true.
ps: was Martin searched for offensive weapons first? Where are the bodyguards in suits who would have rugby tackled either him or the Queen to the floor?
No Bob Dylan connection, though that's nothing new (on more than one level), apart from what you didn't mention: sometimes Satan comes as a Man of Peace. Just McGuinness's shifty eyes in his expressionless (beyond that of frozen hate) face says he's hypocritically dripping in the blood of self-conscious willful denial. But given that you omitted that, the in-one's-faceness of your (wafer-thin) slice belies its relevance. The problem of Irish feudal (and feuding) bloodlust* goes back to at least the first colonization by Partholan around 1484 BC (about 2520 years since the Creation according to the PAGAN Irish Annals [of the Four Masters]). Partholan landed in the estuary of the river Kenmare. Partholan was the grandson of Magog: the biblical grandson of Noah as recorded in the Genesis fairy tale. As for why this migration, and others, by early descendants of biblical cartoon characters is documented outside the Bible when: i) modern man had been around for 100 to 200,000 years earlier and so should have already been in Ireland, leaving visible traces; ii) there is no scientific evidence of a humanity-destroying global Flood or the consequent migration of humanity, descended from only 8 surviving persons, from the parochial confines of a post-Flood Babel, this will have to be left to those with intellectual integrity to ponder. But if the descent of humanity is to be traced, even from extra-biblical sources, from immediate descendants of Noah, then the extreme antiquity of humanity belies its brevity. If humanity did get wiped out by a global Flood, then that would have left a geological imprint too, for which there is no evidence. Why? Because the geological record proves the extreme antiquity of humanity and even greater antiquity of the earth. In which case, why do ancient extrabiblical records trace colonization of Europe (and elsewhere) to recent post-Noah ancestors clearly documented in the Bible (Genesis's Table of Nations)? If we're Out of Africa 200,000 years ago, dispersing all over the globe, we shouldn't be coming from a Middle East Babel from well under 4,500 years ago. But then if Herr Knoll has a better explanation of the evolution of human language, ug ug ug... Of course this is beyond your slice-thin Bob Dylan "news" attention span. As for your closing recycled-Dylan altar call, are you getting many converts from among the Bobheads? Dawkins holds you in even greater contempt than "YEC". And the divine indignation of Dawkins is a terrible thing to behold. At the apocalypse Dawkins's judgmental glare will disintegrate you into a puff of smoke. Don't look for him, he'll see you * As for whether the bloodthirstiness of the Irish is genetic (in which case blame evolution) or induced by cramped living space, I'll leave to the intellectuals.
Herr Knoll needs to get on down the road to the Lubavitchers for some Church Correction on the identity of the Messiah. And maybe he should take the Scandalous Evangelicals with him - the whole barrel of them. In any case, the position he expounds is derived from atheists and vague deists from the 1700s onwards, who were at least consistent in their position - as consistent as Dylan, the Lubavitchers and the Scandalous Evangelicals. He put forward the view that "from what has actually been, we have data for concluding with regard to that which is to happen thereafter." This restated the Scottish Enlightenment concept which David Hume had put in 1777 as "all inferences from experience suppose ... that the future will resemble the past", and Charles Lyell memorably rephrased in the 1830s as "the present is the key to the past".[35] Hutton's 1788 paper concludes; "The result, therefore, of our present enquiry is, that we find no vestige of a beginning,–no prospect of an end." 2 Peter 3 King James Version (KJV) 3 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. It’s a shadowy world, skies are slippery grey A woman just gave birth to a prince today and dressed him in scarlet He’ll put the priest in his pocket, put the blade to the heat Take the motherless children off the street And place them at the feet of a harlot Oh, Jokerman, you know what he wants Oh, Jokerman, you don’t show any response Now Knoll is as over a (slippery) barrel there as certain experts on Dylan's use of "the Bible". It's one thing to parrot Scripture in an interlinear manner that leaves people yawning, but quite another to INTERPRET intertextually in a way that sees the bigger picture. Enter, at a stretch, another Michael. No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
The Michael Slippery Gray would like to make the following theological pronouncements on The Scandal of Intellectual Schizophrenia Within Sliced Gray Matter to disembodied cyber-entities referring to themselves with grandiose delusions in the third person: You rise up and say goodbye to no one Fools rush in where angels fear to tread Luke 11:17-19 King James Version (KJV) 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. 18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. Yes Dylan changed his views radically when he cavorted with some other evangelicals of a rather un-Evangelical persuasion for whom the world is still in the year 5772: which means, as Dylan said to Kurt Loder, "I think we'll have at least two hundred years". So when the Germanically bespectacled intellectual Herr Noll sends the Evangelicals to the new gas chambers (literally or in terms of intellectual metaphor) in his SS outfit for intellectual inferiority, he'll have to, in addition to including the "innocents" which his very own sloganizing doesn't cater for, include Dylan's Lubavitch friends too. If he wants to be consistent. Which could raise eyebrows in terms of political correctness. Then again, it could be an ingenious solution to the Middle East problem. It's definitely a slippery slope - down Niagara. SNIP
The canker of young-earth creationism needs to be extirpated from the face of the earth. Then there will be no more tears and no more sorrow. May I suggest the erection of gas chambers for the extermination of its adherents which would include not only the evangelicals but Dylan's Hasidim friends too. (Noll has the right physiognomy for the role of an SS officer in say Schindler's List.) Bob Dylan, 1985: This world is scheduled to go for 7,000 years. Six thousand years of this, where man has his way, and 1,000 years when God has His way. Just like a week. Six days work, one day rest. The last thousand years is called the Messianic Age.
