This topic should really be split, so we can start talking about Pedobear again. ;)

Actually, it comes from the Germanic dialect that was spoken in the Dutch regions in the Middle Ages, 'Diets', I believe.
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

Allow me to explain that one, since you "won't even start". The nation of Israel was named after Jacob, or Israel, one of the Bible's great patriarchs of the Hebrew people. The religion of the Hebrew people was, and still is, Jewish.

It isn't rocket science.

This is why I said don't get me started...

1. Israelis are people from Israel, Jews are people of the Jewish faith and Hebrew is an ancient language typically spoken by those of the Jewish faith or in regions typical of such culture.
2. Italians are people from Italy, Catholics are people of the Catholic faith, and Latin is an ancient language typically spoken by those of the Catholic faith or in regions typical of such culture.

Is statement 1 really that much more difficult to comprehend than statement 2, or do you have a problem Catholics as well? What if I told you a person could be American and Christian, and speak English, would that blow your mind too? Countries, religions and languages are actually different things, its not just some untermenshen trickery. You could even call Zionism Patriotism, if that eases the mental strain.

Please reference the definitions in the link I provided. It is NOT as simple as example #2. There are many types of Jews:

Secular Jews
http://en.wikipedia...._Jewish_culture
"The community of Jewish people is generally considered to be an ethnoreligious rather than solely a religious grouping."

Messianic Jews
http://en.wikipedia....ssianic_Judaism
Basically Christian Jews

Besides being married to my ex for 7 years who was Jewish, I also have a friend that tells me he's Jewish by race only and is an atheist. So how is that possible if it's as cut and dried and example #2?

The definition of Hebrew:
http://dictionary.re...m/browse/hebrew
"a member of the Semitic peoples inhabiting ancient Palestine and claiming descent from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; an Israelite. "

That looks like a race to me...

The definition of a Jew
http://dictionary.re....com/browse/jew
"one of a scattered group of people that traces its descent from the Biblical Hebrews or from postexilic adherents of Judaism; Israelite. "

That looks like a race to me...l

Definition of an Israelite
http://dictionary.re...rowse/israelite
"a descendant of Jacob, esp. a member of the Hebrew people who inhabited the ancient kingdom of Israel. "
Hebrew people? You said Hebrew was only a language?

So you came into the conversation with a smart ass attitude. No thanks needed for the free "enlightenment." Just get your facts straight next time.

And what the hell do Catholics have anything to do with this conversation?!

I love how you spoke on my behalf. Actually it doesn't matter. So what someone got "Pwned" on the forums. Big deal...

My reason for what? Asking? Well, I ask because I think it's a pretty stupid thing to get worked up about.

Also, "because I feel like it" is not the answer I was expecting from a grown man.

Read your last sentence, Matias. Now think about what you just said, and maybe your error of judgement will become clear.


Still, it does amuse that the nature of this forum lends itself so completely to egos clashing, willy-waving and arguments that all three have, literally, generated themselves naturally out of nothing.

Since this thread descended from pedobear to Jews it should follow Godwin's law and start debating about Hitler. :p

Hitler ate sugar. :p

Also, he probably had an issue with the Jews' nomenclature, and therefore that was the reason for the Holocaust. By an extension of this, Hostile is a Nazi, as you can tell by his evil, "hostile" name choice. Q.E.D.

It's been pathetically boring. All over this forum. It's painful to even "view new posts."

A handful show up and 20% are bots. I sure hope traffic picks up as the fall comes. We don't even have a hot jailbait pic thread. I was jealous when I saw one on another forum.

We are such a bunch of nerds. We have a "hot rig" thread. I'm waiting for a "dress up in cardboard armor and take a pic of it" thread.

I wish Revora would "grow up" along with it's users. It has been a series of people doing great, then they grow up and realize Revora is very limited in it's appeal, than fade away. It's too sanitized, it's down right BORING.
