it's worded as such because the israelites had a covenant specifically with yahweh(who predates judaism, of course).

the belief in baal and asherah were widely accepted at this time as well- asherah was yahweh's consort.

there's also debate on whether or not El was the same as yahweh.

got this book about 7-8 years ago that delves into the topic with remarkable clarity and ease. i'm a history major so perhaps i'm a bit biased, but i always thought the history of monotheism was fascinating.

> MRI has increased in use massively and lung cancer detection has improved yet the link remains strong

How do you determine who is (or was, before death) a "smoker"? People aren't born "smokers", or "non-smokers", smoking the exact same amounts, in the exact same way, each day for a lifetime.

> The book itself premises itself to show that smoking doesn't cause cancer.

No. The premise is: "that government statistics on smoking, like those on AIDS, cannot be trusted."

> The same type of studies have been used with obesity

...And got [everything wrong[(

> I can't find the part of the book that states everyone is a smoker/nonsmoker.

It's the logical reduction of what he's saying. It's also self-evidently true on the basis that it's impossible to avoid breathing at least a few particles of smoke throughout one's life.

> I don't see how a person who smokes 1 pack a day vs a person who never smokes cant be seperated.

What is the "never smokes" person used to smoke 5 packs per day or grew up around second-hand smoke? What if the "1 pack a day" person used to not smoke?

> smoking doesn't cause cancer

...Then give back the money legally-awarded from tobacco companies, and give back all the taxes paid on cigarettes.

I actually bought the ICONIC book bu Jonathan Zufi, it contains great pictures of the design as well some interiors electronics for a lot less money than apple is asking for.

May I interest you in a cookbook dedicated to a culinary genre that will tickle your taste buds?

u/Spongi · 1 pointr/nottheonion

Best I can do is $1. Still want some cookies?

Or maybe some other desserts.

I can't tell what you're getting worked up over. Author is a "speaker" and a "writer". The years of publicizing of his departure from Christianity was part of the runup to his next book.

Organic publicity is never as effective as a focused blitz and social media campaigns. This is why someone would publicly air what the rest of us would consider rather personal (faith, religion, crumbling relationships, divorce) on Instagram instead of quietly moving to the next stage in our careers.

He's kicking up his own dust to attract attention. And despite disagreeing with his own message and admitting that it "harms" people, he doesn't disagree quite enough to pull it from Amazon

u/mrmariomaster · 1 pointr/nottheonion

Buy Iconic instead, 4 years old but it has very good pictures. It has 650 pictures.

u/IPoopFruit · 1 pointr/nottheonion

I am not super worked up. Just annoyed that you would automatically put an unsubstantiated claim onto him coming out about his loss of faith, and his apologies to the LGBTQ/people who were harmed by the message in his book. He came out and stated that he no longer agrees with his past writing and that's all that should matter.

>Organic publicity is never as effective as a focused blitz and social media campaigns. This is why someone would publicly air what the rest of us would consider rather personal (faith, religion, crumbling relationships, divorce) on Instagram instead of quietly moving to the next stage in our careers.

Why even bring this up in the first place? I don't know what you are trying to state with this?

>He's kicking up his own dust to attract attention.

Again. This is a random unsubstantiated claim. There is no good reason to state this, nor any claim that can't be affirmed for that matter.

>And despite disagreeing with his own message and admitting that it "harms" people, he doesn't disagree quite enough to pull it from Amazon

Just because he wants to pull it from shelves doesn't mean the publishers do.

A questions I have.

- Do you genuinely believe the claim you are making? and if so, what makes the claim actually credible?

- Even if he was coming out to promote his other talks/publications, does that take away from his message? It wouldn't change the fact that he lost his faith, correct?

ah finally lol, thanks a lot for that! Yeah now of course I see it both times when they said it's school property. Still, I can't imagine why the parents wouldn't just get their son a walking stick...I found one on Amazon for like 12 bucks ffs...

I deplore the way they punished the kid, but something seems...fishy...about the parents' representation of the kinda stupid...I mean for 12$ just buy it...

I think the green shirt version is perfect since red/green are christmas colors.

Just be sure to get the right size because if it's too big and it bunches up no one will see the full effect.

u/Halowary · 6 pointsr/nottheonion

Haha you can find Uranium just walking around outside, he wouldn't be able to make anything at all with it. It's little more than a bit of rock really. You can buy Uranium on Amazon.

If that’s true, then what does her first romance book The Wrong Brother say about her?

u/TheCowIsOkay · 1 pointr/nottheonion

I've been making hamdogs with something like this for a few years now:

Of course this is different (a hot dog shaped hamburger) but man if you wrap one of these in bacon and grill it up - oooh yeah.

Calories are not equal. A sugar calorie is not the same as a fat calorie. Eating sugar will spike insulin which causes energy to be stored in fat cells. Eating fat doesn't spike insulin so nothing is being stored as fat. [Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health]

Further, eating carbs and sugar makes a person hungry 2-3 hours after eating. Insulin clears the body of energy. All the energy is gone in the blood, and insulin blocks the fat cells from releasing more energy. A person has to eat again. When I eat sausage, eggs, and butter for breakfast, I can easily go 6 hours without eating and not be hungry.

What's the Matter with Kansas. Good book.

(Relevant, because Kansas used to be at the forefront of progressivism.)

You're getting downvoted for some reason, but it's a real book and he just keeps going

Reminds me of the chef in New York who made cheese from his lactating wife's breast milk and sold it in his restaurant.

And also this

u/Marcusaralius76 · 8 pointsr/nottheonion Ignore the product, just go straight to the q&a and product reviews.

Unfortunately during the last famine, “grass cakes” replaced non-existent rice, so compost is likely an extreme luxury in many parts of NK.

Edit: If you want to know waaaaay too much more, read this epic volume

u/brideofchuckydoll · 9 pointsr/nottheonion

Her cover images are just as ridiculous. They all follow the same formula of heavily air brushed muscley stud in the foreground with a random ass smaller image behind the title.

The mullet and teddy bear are my favorite.

This sounds like a great opportunity for everyone to read "Three Felonies a Day" (Amazon link, sorry, also available at libraries and used bookstores) by Harvey Silverglate, describing how much of our daily lives is actually criminal and how severe the punishment can be for No Big Deal crimes like, dunno, sharing your password to an online account.

It's one of those It Could Never Happen To Me things until you or someone you love is arrested and charged, and you can't pay the bail and the lawyer says fighting it will cost more than you earn in a year and now you're looking to plead out just so you can go home to see your kids.

u/tablair · 2 pointsr/nottheonion

The reviews on that item are hilarious...just ignore those pesky ‘verified purchase’ customers.

u/TheWuggening · 1 pointr/nottheonion

No, they're actually right. This isn't a book for reading.. It's high falutin' decor. I've spent a lot of money on high quality print books like this. They aren't going to print a hell of a lot of these things, and when you're talking about making something of this quality, it just costs a fuck of lot to do. If you wanted to replicate this thing yourself, it would likely cost you a good bit more at the printers.

> Here is a good video on this topic

No, it's not - it's by someone who has no idea what they're talking about, either.

Educating yourself via "Rebel Media" youtube videos isn't the wisest move: if you want to learn about the causes of the Civil War, why don't you read the actual words of the people who did the rebelling? You might start here with the 4 declarations regarding the causes of secession issued by seceding states, or with the Vice-President of the Confederacy's cornerstone speech. Or maybe you could just read what other Confederates were saying.

Or if the Confederates' own words aren't good enough, how about some basic reasoning: why do you think it is that all of the states which attempted to secede had more than 20% of their populations as slaves; that no state with more than 20% of the population enslaved attempted to secede; and that secession occurred directly in response to the election of the moderate Republican Abraham Lincoln?

Or if neither reasoning nor evidence helps you, how about math? According to the 1860 US census, among the states which attempted to secede, 30.8% of families owned slaves: according to the exhaustive study of the Army of Northern Virginia performed by historian Joseph Glatthaar, about 10% of the 1861 enlistees personally owned slaves (along with more than half of the officers), and very nearly half either owned slaves or lived in a slaveowning household. And that doesn't count the ones who merely had friends and neighbors who owned slaves; who ran businesses which rented slaves; who made their money by doing business with slaveowners; who aspired to own slaves; or who simply believed that slavery was morally right and liked having someone to feel superior to.

> Do you think with the recent wars the US has been involved in that the people fighting them were the bad guys?

I don't think there has to be only one set of 'bad guys'. And people who aren't particularly nice can still sometimes do the right thing.

I just read the opening passage on Amazon and yeah... I agree with you. I'd have stopped reading too.

> SAVAGE, DESPICABLE EVIL. THAT'S WHAT WE WERE FIGHTING in Iraq. That's why a lot of people, myself included, called the enemy "savages." There really was no other way to describe what we encountered there.
> People ask me all the time, "How many people have you killed?" My standard response is,
> "Does the answer make me less, or more, of a man?" The number is not important to me. I only wish I had killed more. Not for bragging rights, but because I believe the world is a better place without savages out there taking American lives. Everyone I shot in Iraq was trying to harm Americans or Iraqis loyal to the new government.
