Alexander Jahans, anyone? archiver 09/27/2023 (Wed) 01:46:00 No.3337 [Reply]
Did anyone experience Alexander Jahans when he was a Youtube lolcow? There is an entire archive being compiled, and it's a nostalgic window into another time. Thought my nostalgic bros may enjoy this.

>>3353 negated
>>3355 you lost this argument. There are tons of Jahans fans from the good old days of 4chan and 8chan and it's extremely nostalgic to us. Check this one out you'll be laughing for days
>>3350 Ten years ago isn't retro by this board's standards. I don't consider it retro either, although I'm glad people are archiving this stuff.
>>3357 Fair enough mate. But it will be retro really soon. I respect that you don't see it as retro. But the change between bloody 2015 and 2023 (today) is stark, especially online. It's a dramatic change that previously would have been unheard of. In 2015, the internet was still kind of an "Old West" of sorts. Can you at least acknowledge that?
>>3356 checked and keked. I remember this bloke from brit/pol/ days seems like ancient history now. It's kind of retro in a way.

01- Alif-Lãm-Ra. ˹This is˺ a Book which We have revealed to you ˹O Prophet˺ so that you may lead people out of darkness and into light, by the Will of their Lord, to the Path of the Almighty, the Praiseworthy— 02- Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And woe to the disbelievers because of a severe torment! 03- ˹They are˺ the ones who favour the life of this world over the Hereafter and hinder ˹others˺ from the Way of Allah, striving to make it ˹appear˺ crooked. It is they who have gone far astray. 04- We have not sent a messenger except in the language of his people to clarify ˹the message˺ for them. Then Allah leaves whoever He wills to stray and guides whoever He wills. And He is the Almighty, All-Wise. 05- Indeed, We sent Moses with Our signs, ˹ordering him,˺ “Lead your people out of darkness and into light, and remind them of Allah’s days ˹of favour˺.” Surely in this are signs for whoever is steadfast, grateful. 06- ˹Consider˺ when Moses said to his people, “Remember Allah’s favour upon you when He rescued you from the people of Pharaoh, who afflicted you with dreadful torment—slaughtering your sons and keeping your women. That was a severe test from your Lord. 07- And ˹remember˺ when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will certainly give you more. But if you are ungrateful, surely My punishment is severe.’” 08- Moses added, “If you along with everyone on earth were to be ungrateful, then ˹know that˺ Allah is indeed Self-Sufficient, Praiseworthy.” 09- Have you not ˹already˺ received the stories of those who were before you: the people of Noah, ’Âd, Thamûd, and those after them? Only Allah knows how many they were. Their messengers came to them with clear proofs, but they put their hands over their mouths and said, “We totally reject what you have been sent with, and we are certainly in alarming doubt about what you are inviting us to.” 10- Their messengers asked ˹them˺, “Is there any doubt about Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth? He is inviting you in order to forgive your sins, and delay your end until your appointed term.” They argued, “You are no more than humans like us! You ˹only˺ wish to turn us away from what our forefathers worshipped. So bring us some compelling proof.” 11- Their messengers said to them, “We are ˹indeed˺ only humans like you, but Allah favours whoever He chooses of His servants. It is not for us to bring you any proof without Allah’s permission. And in Allah let the believers put their trust. 12- Why should we not put our trust in Allah, when He has truly guided us to ˹the very best of˺ ways? Indeed, we will patiently endure whatever harm you may cause us. And in Allah let the faithful put their trust.” 13- The disbelievers then threatened their messengers, “We will certainly expel you from our land, unless you return to our faith.” So their Lord revealed to them, “We will surely destroy the wrongdoers, 14- and make you reside in the land after them. This is for whoever is in awe of standing before Me and fears My warning.” 15- And both sides called for judgment, so every stubborn tyrant was doomed. 16- Awaiting them is Hell, and they will be left to drink oozing pus, 17- which they will sip with difficulty, and can hardly swallow. Death will overwhelm them from every side, yet they will not ˹be able to˺ die. Awaiting them still is harsher torment.

28- Have you not seen those ˹disbelievers˺ who meet Allah’s favours with ingratitude and lead their own people to their doom? 29- In Hell they will burn. What an evil place for settlement. 30- They set up equals to Allah to mislead ˹others˺ from His Way. Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Enjoy yourselves! Surely your destination is the Fire.” 31- Tell My believing servants to establish prayer and donate from what We have provided for them—openly and secretly—before the arrival of a Day in which there will be no ransom or friendly connections. 32- It is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth and sends down rain from the sky, causing fruits to grow as a provision for you. He has subjected the ships for your service, sailing through the sea by His command, and has subjected the rivers for you. 33- He has ˹also˺ subjected for you the sun and the moon, both constantly orbiting, and has subjected the day and night for you. 34- And He has granted you all that you asked Him for. If you tried to count Allah’s blessings, you would never be able to number them. Indeed humankind is truly unfair, ˹totally˺ ungrateful. 35- ˹Remember˺ when Abraham prayed, “My Lord! Make this city ˹of Mecca˺ secure, and keep me and my children away from the worship of idols. 36- My Lord! They have caused many people to go astray. So whoever follows me is with me, and whoever disobeys me—then surely You are ˹still˺ All-Forgiving, Most Merciful. 37- Our Lord! I have settled some of my offspring in a barren valley, near Your Sacred House, our Lord, so that they may establish prayer. So make the hearts of ˹believing˺ people incline towards them and provide them with fruits, so perhaps they will be thankful. 38- Our Lord! You certainly know what we conceal and what we reveal. Nothing on earth or in heaven is hidden from Allah. 39- All praise is for Allah who has blessed me with Ishmael and Isaac in my old age. My Lord is indeed the Hearer of ˹all˺ prayers. 40- My Lord! Make me and those ˹believers˺ of my descendants keep up prayer. Our Lord! Accept my prayers. 41- Our Lord! Forgive me, my parents, and the believers on the Day when the judgment will come to pass.” 42- Do not think ˹O Prophet˺ that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them until a Day when ˹their˺ eyes will stare in horror— 43- rushing forth, heads raised, never blinking, hearts void. 44- And warn the people of the Day when the punishment will overtake ˹the wicked among˺ them, and the wrongdoers will cry, “Our Lord! Delay us for a little while. We will respond to Your call and follow the messengers!” ˹It will be said,˺ “Did you not swear before that you would never be removed ˹to the next life˺?”

>>107 An-Nisa 155- ˹They were condemned˺ for breaking their covenant, rejecting Allah’s signs, killing the prophets unjustly, and for saying, “Our hearts are unreceptive!”—it is Allah Who has sealed their hearts for their disbelief, so they do not believe except for a few— 156- and for their denial and outrageous accusation against Mary, 157- and for boasting, “We killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of Allah.” But they neither killed nor crucified him—it was only made to appear so. Even those who argue for this ˹crucifixion˺ are in doubt. They have no knowledge whatsoever—only making assumptions. They certainly did not kill him. 158- Rather, Allah raised him up to Himself. And Allah is Almighty, All-Wise. 159- Every one of the People of the Book will definitely believe in him before his death. And on the Day of Judgment Jesus will be a witness against them. 160- We forbade the Jews certain foods that had been lawful to them for their wrongdoing, and for hindering many from the Way of Allah,

>>25617 I don't know why you think I'm debating. I'm trying to tell you, 'elephants are big.' And I feel like you're responding to the effect of, 'oh yeah? How can you convince me that elephants are big? Did you know about skyscrapers? Where's your thesis on elephants? I'm a loony-toony, abroopy doopy doopy. Don't you realise if you just say, 'elephants are big', people won't believe you? If elephants are big why do they have wings? I'm so glad I became a zoologist so I could debate with you all here about those five-legged, four-winged, pink-polka dotted trunkless creatures, elephants!' And I'm telling you to look at the elephant. And then you go, 'I don't wanna look at an elephant!' I'm just going to keep telling you to look at the elephant. If you're going to worship a person. You should know who they are and what they've said. And if you're going to contribute to a discussion. You should have an idea of what those beliefs you're discussing even are. The headache is that I have the impression you're going to keep posting 'your doctrine' in contradiction to scripture and give advice contrary to scripture all over the board anyway, then do what you've done here and make it as though the person correcting you is culpable of guilt for separating you from your conception of God by telling you to read the scriptures of the religion you profess. It means your 'conception of God' is just false. Well, if you think God is just human 'kindness,' and especially 'kindness that needs to adhere to my understanding of what kindness is and serve my ideas of what'd be good more than God's' then yes, that conception is false. If you genuinely want answers to any question, you can not learn those answers if you think the axioms you hold that are leading you to have the questions are already right. It's rather that your axioms are wrong. and that you didn't read Swedenborg very well since you shouldn't have these questions if you read him. (And yes he's legitimately right about the points you're mocking him for). You can not have humility before the Word if you dismiss heavenly things as, 'they're just high,' or see someone recount interactions with an angel and go 'that guy was on drugs', or going 'if I was in that position, I'd hate Christ!' when referring to people actually in that position such as the blind man who love him and are grateful, or contrarily going 'Christ you're not being loving enough!' (though there isn't actually any specific case of Christ not healing a leper; you made that up) for not performing miracles before people who hate him, are mocking him, or don't want the miracle as much as they want to hold onto their existing notion of him and so are unwilling to receive it. (Because as well as always telling the truth, God also loves and respects free will). Even though He actually does! He performs the biggest miracle that ever happened, before everybody. And guess what? People still don't believe it! For even a hypothetical moment, consider reading the scripture with the mindset of, it's not being misleading or deceptive or allegorical and rather that IT WAS ACTUALLY ANGELS. And then YES, it does make sense. The world in general does really. Moreover it's the thing that you're treating this as a philosophy, not a religion. If Christ has done something good for you, why don't you believe what He says and want Him more? If you think what He says has value, why are you not going to the source of where He said it?

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

I appreciate the attempt to illustrate what you're getting at with allegory because it's an attempt to reach out but my issue with the elephant is not that it looks preposterous, but that the stakes and the proof required for accepting it involve the very lens by which I view everything else that crops up in reality. It does not fit awkwardly or otherwise in any of those confines. That's why you get people not seeing an elephant at all, much less recognising how big one is. I understand, again, you telling me to look closer at this blurry thing vaguely at the edge of my field of view but I've only just grasped being able to get to this point. Looking at it or into it isn't obvious as you suggest either. I'm going to look in there at fractal patterns no one in the country (except people as rare as you) has grasped in nearly a century and I'm going to have questions which you won't answer because you can't, and which JC left on the shelf because he didn't consider them important to the audience he had with him at the time. And I argue with you, you stand-in of wise counsel, because your Dad's treating me as a mute or as not good enough.

Modern /retro/ material that actually does it right Fellow Time Traveler 08/06/2020 (Thu) 18:36:27 No.768 [Reply] [Last]
Let's have a new thread without a tonne of broken images. Have there been any new forms of /retro/ media (could be movies, games, anime, websites, etc.) that wanted to look old and actually succeeded? There's an artist called BlueTheBone who makes "retro"-styled animations, cheesecake, and porn. Like any modern hack, he overdoses on visual clutter and uses filters that don't actually resemble the time period he's trying to emulate - but despite that, I think his style is consistently decent. If he relied less on computers and filters, then I think he'd be a much better artist, but that goes without saying for most contemporary artists. The really weird things happen when he tries to make modern character designs and media look old, like pic 2. It isn't exactly wrong, but there is something perplexing about viewing characters and series that were developed specifically with modern aesthetics in mind.

I won't just flood the thread but as you can see the blending can be used to both subtle or dramatic effect. It can smooth out the typical blockieness of ZX art and it can give you some otherwise inaccessible colors.
Just found something interesting, POV-Ray 2's makefiles only specify basic optimization (-O), with -O2 you can get up to around 30 seconds of time saved for longer renders. Resulting files are checksum identical too so no issues there.

Purgatory as defined by the Vatican is the fairest thing.
The concept of Purgatory, a place of temporal punishment, comes from 1 Cor 3:13, 15 and dates back to the Council of Lyons in 1245. "10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames."
>>25571 That there, that's proof that you will feel morose when the house you tried to build for good retained some sin and was burned. What that is not proof of is a whole other universe on top of the canon/doctrine you have already established. I get that fighting an Italiano-German emperor is scary but that doesn't explain why you would make a really big extrapolation doctrinally. You would think that I could find arguments both for and against, spoken succinctly and decisively in the meeting at Lyon with either evidence for their case, given the thing's significance. But all I can find reference for are those things decreed, and basically nothing for their evidence or rationale. What was said after the fact? Did it become 'this must be right because the previous council said so'?

>>25558 Its not her that's keeping me away from that confession but my own self. As I've said I wasn't even raised Christian, so the idea of confessing something so personal and shameful in front of someone I've come to greatly respect feels deeply uncomfortable. I would have better luck I suppose if the confession was the stereotypical box, where you can't see but only hear the Priest but sadly that is not the case here. I was also a bit unclear on her suggestion in regard to "finding God". It wasn't a clear cut "Find God" command, bur rather a series of suggestions after a very eventful Friday and Saturday had me nearly end myself. "Why don't you head to that church in town if you need help?" "The people here are nice, why not return?" etc. As for driving me away from God? You've helped me made up my mind on at least one thing. Should whatever this be seek to tear me from God, I'll assume it was either hijacked or it isn't her to begin with. She brought me to God's light from a very long and dark shadow, and any effort to rip me away from that would go against it.
>>25559 It's hard to say this politely, but Celestia isn't real. If you are getting messages through something claiming to be Celestia, it's assured that it isn't Celestia, but something using her voice and image because you respond to it and already have an idea of what Celestia 'is'. It's something that wants to utilize the positive associations, or comprehension of positive concepts, you already have through Celestia. Whether it's an ultimately good or bad thing is up for you to discern, but I'll note, 'Celestia' apparently didn't help you much in terms of avoiding suicide as much as turning towards God did. You know? The message here is more important than the packaging.
>>25554 >Lev. 18:23 My earnest assumption is not that you want to 'know' a horse. You likely aren't interested in Princess Celestia just because the character is a little pony. You likely have incredibly positive feelings towards the personality designed for the character. You may see Celestia as strong, encouraging, compassionate, caring for others, etc. and gravitate towards those personality traits. They may be what you're looking for in others or want for yourself. It's similar to how someone would like Fluttershy for being a shy yet caring personality or Twilight for being an intelligent and determined personality. And here's the thing: To like those personality traits is not a wicked thing in itself. You're putting a lot of shame and guilt on yourself for being drawn to this character designed to be likeable. Talking about only being good enough for hell and not caring enough about yourself to change is difficult for anyone. Allow yourself to separate your interest in the character from your interest in personality types. However, there's a problem: Celestia is a fictional character. Your attraction to the character cannot be reciprocated because the character has not, does not and will not ever exist. The character was designed literally to sell merchandise and products to little girls. It is a parasocial relationship that is keeping you from embracing true connections with people in your community. It's unhealthy and certainly not what God wants for anyone. That likely will not mean anything in itself, so allow me to pose an alternative: >Would Celestia want you to go to Hell for her? >Does Celestia want you to feel so tortured and miserable, afraid to tell anyone or go to confession? >Would Celestia enjoy seeing the other characters absolutely despise themselves over what you're currently going through? If "Yes," then Celestia is absolutely the worst influence I could possibly imagine, and you need to turn away for your own sake.

>>25554 Listen anon the Oxytocin in your head is making you huff the burning bush. It offers a skewered/altered/warped sense of reality. It feels real good to do it. And that you found God through doing it is genuinely, really really very good. But it's like fattening and feeding the goose until it waddles away. That the goose was real or imagined does not matter particularly. The withdrawl is worse than a death in the family. Faith in God is better than it. My experiences have been wholly horrible, to the point where if I eat a meal and the meal's fookin shite I'm still saying "thank you God" in my head. I could have had nothing at all. I could still have nothing at all. I understand the reluctance to go to confessional too. I just wouldn't do it because I expect perfect forgiveness from God, but not from similar flawed beings to me. Society is comprised of these people who regularly make a social death of others that is more or less than they deserve. My life is not complicated by it, because my denomination doesn't maintain it as a doctrine or tradition. Maybe the other anons are correct about it and I'm in no place to advise you. But I've seen so many Catholics like the mafia or the gypsies treat it like a frivolity to go in and absolve themselves when the grace of God has not affected them in any other measurable regard. I'm sure these arguments have been made before. Maybe my ego is wont for protection. It doesn't matter to me. God knows what I did when I lashed out. For all these arguments I have I've never heard firm rebuttal.
>>25554 >>25563 Sorry if I've not been succinct enough... Once you've fattened and fed the goose enough it will have fled ungratefully, typically over a 3 year cycle, although after a time it can return and repeat again into another one. You could take Abilify and trust big pharma if the alternative is suicide, but better treatment consists of "treatment through doing" which is to improve yourself and to go on dates and to prove to yourself that you have value. I've tried not to communicate with mine in any affectionate way possible. It helps that I have weak imagination and it's my own monologue that does the trying hard. You may have Atlas personality disorder as well, as the basis for an attachment mechanism. It lends itself well to simping if the limerent object were manifestly a real woman. I don't know how to treat it. I just try to keep the fat, overfed, greedy, ungrateful goose metaphor in mind and try to restrain it enough that a very giving nature is only manifest as "Acts of Service", that cause "Positive Dread Game" in a woman as opposed to contempt for trying to pay in kind for being an unworthy prescence before them. If it means anything positive to you, I have had these experiences and they were incredible but they have stopped being purposeful. I'm just trying to keep separate my experience of life from it now. Addiction is just an artificial pain relief in the end.

What's the deal with christian infighting, when the world outside the churches is full of sin and of the deception of satan? The first people who need christian correction, are the sinners, of which the unreligious out of ignorance about the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ are the most of. Some talk about "ecumenism" between different branches of christianity. But what about having ecumenism in converting the enemies of the church of christ, converting the unreligious, converting the neo-pagans now coming to light, converting the victims of the deception of the modern anti-christian world? Lets make the evangelism of the Word of God, be the real way to church unity and to the real church of Christ. >“Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and simple as doves. >But beware of people, for they will hand you over to courts and scourge you in their synagogues," Matthew 10:16-17 >So the disciples said to one another, “Could someone have brought him something to eat?” >Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me and to finish his work. >Do you not say, ‘In four months the harvest will be here’? I tell you, look up and see the fields ripe for the harvest. >The reaper is already receiving his payment and gathering crops for eternal life, so that the sower and reaper can rejoice together. For here the saying is verified that ‘One sows and another reaps.’ >I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have done the work, and you are sharing the fruits of their work.”

>>23681 Go and look at the modern Quakers on youtube. Go and look at anything said by an Anglican/CofE bishop in the last 20 years. Take a look at what modern methodists are up to. The only reason I don't go around calling these people evil is because it's not effective as a strategy to go around calling these people evil. If you managed to make one final push to try to save even one of the CofE schools, the teachers' union would try to obstruct or sooner close down or sue you. Churchill fought most of Europe over lesser grievances than this. His grandson invites in all the mohammedians and believes in worse things than nothing. These people sometimes, sometimes only rarely, openly state that they want to see you hurt or that they want to see you killed - mainly that they want to see you shut-up forcibly. You can't commune with them. You can't convert them. Their way is the law and your way is an illegal anachronism. If Protestantism isn't dead and doesn't deserve to be called as much and to their faces no less, then how should we go about arranging for 10 as likeminded as us to be present in the same room in one place together? We're scattered on the wind and lost like diaspora. So I don't believe the quakers when they say that we need meetings. Seclusion is what I ask for and am occassionally given, and I'm glad whenever it is to have had any.
The simple truth is, at the end of the day: Christ is everywhere, as is his father, as is his spirit. You can be Christian when you are rich and when you are homeless, with an untouched stone as an altar or a church. It does not matter the circumstance or the denomination. God makes the call, Jesus saves, you have your life to live according to what is sensible. You grow and as you grow you grow your faith.
>>23143 Thanks, Pete/Pietr/Pierre holy man I thought I was going to hell, but then I don't see or intend the rejection of Catholicism as a sin. I know they're there for sure, but then it looks like a ritual larp and their confessional looks like an excuse to steal some more of my paving slabs. I'd never want into there, and I'd be without God if that's all there had been presented before me. My entry point was Svedenborgsen, who was absolutely not a prophet by the way just a laymen preacher huffing some more burning bush, followed by the quakers and their long time ago insistence on doctrinal correctitude. Modern quakers are trash mind you it's the plain variety similar to the Amish you're going to want. You'd take the Amish over a Catholic anyday - you know you would, and it doesn't help to get jealous or pout or to declare you won because you're the only one who gets to interpret the rules. Let the Pope think that perhaps, but he's lost whole fleets of ships to "God said I'm right" before. You do understand that even if America is a republic and not a monarchy that their bloodlines and origins go backwards into monarchist family trees and to kinglier times, right? They are about as damned as the Sultanate of Belize is holy. I'd go further while I'm blustering actually; I'd say that for anything you can not render 100% proveable, "swearing no oath" applies. I'll argue with the quakers as well if what I haven't got is certainty, the non-violent element being one such example. It overlooks the passages covering the need to pay reciprocity. Saint Nicholas beat the heathens with a fist. The quakers just argue with it because Jesus wouldn't do it. I don't agree with simply letting other mortal men fight in your place.
>>22934 The conflict between different christian branches and denominations is mostly pointless, and result from political divides more than ideology. Each individual has their own relationship with God, and any 2 christians from not just the same denomination, but the same church community will probably disagree on major points. All religions are like this, not just Christianity. For new converts, don't obsess about what "the Best" book or practice is, just follow the general guidelines. You can always read and compare different versions if you want. Anyone who says having Bibles from other denominations is a sin is an idiot. Christianity is about knowledge, not ignorance. The same for prayer and church services. The real conflict christians face is atheism in all it's forms. The rejection of God leads to narcissism and hubris, which is the orginal concept of evil (it was Lucifer's sin after all). Without God there is no real belief in morality, and all evils can be justified. Look at the over 1 billion people who have died the last century as a result of socialism and communism. Other religions at least believe in something. Even Muslims can be allies against atheists. The problem with pagans was that they believed in superstitions and used human sacrifice and cannibalism to solve simple problems. This is why pagans converted to Christianity, they realized burying their children alive to help a wall stand was stupid, not fear of colonizers. Neo-pagans who blame war and genocide on Christianity don't know anything about history. The new age "I'm spiritual but not religious" people who like crystals and sage are the new actual Pagans, they just don't realize it, but at least they don't eat their children. They are borderline atheist, but can probably be educated and converted more easily than actual atheists. Most satanists just had bad experiences with Christian communities and are lashing out, or are atheists and think they are being edgy. The "real" Satanists who believe in Satan and murder people are probably the last real pagans left. tldr Don't worry about what Christianity is best, the real enemy is atheism. Even other religions can be allies in that fight.

I think my values were skewed by opposition to state religion in general and persuasion/mockery over legal persecution. The one about Jews deserving everything bad that happened to them over the past X years would get a much stronger answer if it was limited to ~1990 years. >the cow is a sacred animal How should this be answered to reflect a view of "All life, including animals, created by God is sacred, but man has dominion over animals and the cow is only more special than other mammals in the sense that it provides useful goods."?

After going through some ideas in the meta thread, one that I've been considering a lot lately is creating a dedicated, stickied thread that acts as a guide for anything and everything Christianity. This includes different versions of the Bible, texts from Church fathers and scholars, literature, education material, films, TV shows, music, podcasts, everything that would be beneficial to both old and new believers alike. Each of it will be organized in one very large thread for easy browsing. And that's where (You) come in. If you have something that falls into any category listed above (and then some), post it here. >If you have a link, post it along with a working archive (VERY important. Once it's on the Internet, it's there forever, until it isn't.). Use a website like to check for and make backups. >If it's an image, document, or audio/video file, post a link to it and post the file in the thread as well. I will work on getting these archived somewhere like Mega that allows playing them back in the browser. You may download YouTube videos using ytp-dl or through various Invidious instances ( that allow downloading. I will make the actual repository thread once we have substantial material and edit it accordingly, and update it as new material is posted. This thread will be for sharing resources, discussing archive methods, and how the main thread should be organized.

>>25083 >different versions of the Bible There's one Bible, you shouldn't be promoting "versions" of it. One Bible that has been translated and preserved in many languages.

If you really /need/ to appeal to mere mortal men instead of GOD ALMIGHTY and GOD'S WORD, then call them founders or members or leaders or something. You have one Father and "church" is never capitalized in any of the English translations of the Bible. "chruch" is only ever capitalized in translations of "versions" of the Bible used by apostates and heretics and whores and harlots.

Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Like many of you I myself am struggling with pornography addiction and have been trying to beat this illness for the better part of 3 years now. I'm dedicating this thread to all my other brothers in arms out there who are fighting the good fight against the wiles of the devil, Lucifer, and his legion of degeneracy he throws our way. I'll be using this thread as both a catalogue of my own experiences, so that they may be used by others for their own benefit, and as a place to store, discuss, and share data, tips, and motivation so as to help us addicts overcome our desire so that we may enjoy life as God intended with clarity of mind and spirit.

>>25481 >Stop thinking about streaks and stop counting days altogether. Relapse is not masturbation or looking at porn, its letting lust back into your heart and life. ^This is real wisdom and understanding. Attempting to control your actions is futile if you're still an adulterer-at-heart. Even if you succeed, you'd just be a whited sepulchre... "which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness." Matthew 23:27
Letting the living seed of the Word, through the Holy Spirit, is the grace of God to live a holy & redeemed life I believe. That seed is incorruptible, and through it you have new life in Jesus Christ. God bless you richly, Anon.
I met some spiritual evangelists and twice they caste out demons from me, and now i have no motivation to do porn, i've only been clean for a day but i have zero feelings to use it. Also i was delivered from anger from this situation i got into where i was harassed from a job, now i don't feel anything about it. Since i'm quitting porn forever i cannot go to image boards anymore, but i will check up on this one from time to time since it's usually free of porn. I would say if you can look for someone who can deliver you and who has delivered people before, or pray to God to bring you to someone, because most likely your problem is spiritual.
Just deleted all the porn off my computer this morning (again). I've repeated this cycle so many times it just feels normal now. I did it so nonchalantly this time and the last, but I've practically already resigned myself to fail again. Really, I'm beginning to think it's not that big of a deal so far as it concerns myself, but rather I'm just sick of disappointing God. Who cares if it's bad for me? What matters is that I'm not choosing to do the "good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." But the real twisted part about all this is that I don't even know if I believe in God, and I've denied his existence for the past two years at least just so I could avoid having to think about it, yet despite that, I've always felt the desire to conform myself to his will, and I've never been able to shake the odd feeling I get whenever I choose not to wear my cross, like somehow if I give up that meaningless habit of wearing it all the time, that would be it, and I would be cutting any last ties I have with a God I don't believe in.
>>25543 Do you truly not believe in the existence of God, or is that just a coping mechanism to alleviate feelings of guilt over sin? I'd wager most atheists weren't convinced by evidence, rather, they wanted relief from guilt. Sadly, there is no relief for them where they've sought it. There is only self-deception and willful blindness until judgment. We're all sick of disappointing God, but use the pain to make much of Christ. We want to be sanctified and sinless; but, subconciously, is it so we can feel justified by our sinlessness? We should always keep our focus on why we're justified before God: it's because of Jesus' perfect sinless obedience, death, burial, and resurrection as an atonement for us sinners. >"[...] But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:" Romans 5:20 KJV Read that whole chapter. Obviously we don't want to sin, but as a practical matter, I would rather remain a sinner if it kept whole trust in Jesus as my justification. Jesus did more than buy me a second chance. He paid my whole way. Give glory to Him. Thank Him for accomplishing what you could never do.

Thread for discussing and sharing literature relevant to the Christian faith. I bought a copy of The Pilgrim's Progress, I read it years ago in high school and I really wanted to go through it again without staring at a PDF, and it makes for good reading before bed. I had no idea there was a part two in the story as well, where after Christian makes it to the Celestial City his wife and children go on their own journey to it as well. Apparently in high school we only ever read part one. What have you been reading lately?
Methodist literature has been interesting. The separation has led me to seek out historical works, biographies and sermons. "The Garden of American Methodism" was a very nice book on methodism's start alongside the Church of England and how they shaped America after the Revolutionary War. I have the "Autobiography of Peter Cartwright" on my computer but have to carve out the time to begin.

I finished recently the first two volumes of the Book of The New Sun by Gene Wolfe. My first read through so I felt like I was beat over the head having to stop every other sentence to google all the obscure words Wolfe uses. I will definitely get the Lexicon to use for the next read through. I picked this up because I had heard that Wolfe injected his Christian devotion into the work in a similar manner as Tolkien. Great story thus far but a difficult read through on the first go unless you are a vocabulary savant. 35 sec Lore video
Open file (936.79 KB 864x619 calvin.jpg)
I've been reading a whole bunch of stuff, mainly Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion, but besides that, a lot of Bavinck, Kierkegaard, and Luther. One passage in the Institutes of Christian Religion which really made me think recently, was one where Calvin once again quotes Augustine (he quotes him every other page) speaking about predestination and grace, and he related it to the man Christ, rather than the God Christ. It made me realize that I don't consider Jesus a man enough, and regardless of whether or not I understand that he is fully man and fully divine, it's tough for me to hear someone speak of the manhood of Christ without having an initial negative reaction, even though I know there's nothing wrong with recognizing his manhood. But rather than lessening my respect for Jesus Christ, I discovered that thinking more upon his fully human nature only amplified how I already felt about him. It is good to know he is fully man and fully divine, but I think it's something entirely different, and something I haven't attained to yet, to truly understand what that means. >We must devote an additional Chapter to the solution of this question. For there are some men, more subtle than orthodox, who, though they confess that Christ obtained salvation for us, yet cannot bear the word merit, by which they suppose the grace of God is obscured. So they maintain that Christ is only the instrument or minister, not, as he is called by Peter, the Author, or Leader, and “Prince of life.” I grant, indeed, if any man would oppose Christ simply and alone to the judgment of God, there would be no room for merit; because it is impossible to find in man any excellence which can merit the favour of God; nay, as Augustine most truly observes, “The brightest illustration of predestination and grace is the Saviour himself, the man Christ Jesus, who has acquired this character in his human nature, without any previous merit either of works or of faith. Let any one tell me, how that man merited the honour of being assumed into one person with the Word, who is coëternal with the Father, and so becoming the only begotten Son of God. Thus the fountain of grace appears in our Head, and from him diffuses its streams through all his members according to their respective capacities. Every one, from the commencement of his faith, is made a Christian, by the same grace, by which this man, from the commencement of his existence, was made the Christ.” Again, in another treatise, Augustine says, “There is not a more illustrious example of predestination than the Mediator himself. For he who made of the seed of David this righteous man, so that he never was unrighteous, without any previous merit of his will, converts unrighteous persons into righteous ones, and makes them members of that Head,” &c. When we speak of the merit of Christ, therefore, we do not consider him as the origin of it, but we ascend to the ordination of God, which is the first cause; because it was of his mere good pleasure, that God appointed him Mediator to procure salvation for us. And thus it betrays ignorance to oppose the merit of Christ to the mercy of God. For it is a common maxim, that between two things, of which one succeeds or is subordinate to the other, there can be no opposition. There is no reason, therefore, why the justification of men should not be gratuitous from the mere mercy of God, and why at the same time the merit of Christ should not intervene, which is subservient to the mercy of God. But to our works are directly and equally opposed the gratuitous favour of God and the obedience of Christ, each in its respective place. For Christ could merit nothing except by the good pleasure of God, by which he had been predestinated to appease the Divine wrath by his sacrifice, and to abolish our transgressions by his obedience. To conclude, since the merit of Christ depends solely on the grace of God, which appointed this method of salvation for us, therefore his merit and that grace are with equal propriety opposed to all the righteousnesses of men.

Is the idea of an /abdl/ board for still off the table? Requesting one in 2020 was denied and since then the /abdl/ board has lost it's original BO and replaced with one that was stupid enough to stay on 8kun /abdl/ until 2023. The place now has become a normalnigger hellhole that's too uncomfy for anons that like to shitpost, post lolis and create OC content of board-tans since it's now more focused in nothing but 3dpd garbage. The new BO isn't encouraging the things that made /abdl/ fun during Julay and me and a few anons have had enough of it. We really could use a new place even if it's temporary. We were even desperate enough to set up a board on Endchan since it's one of the only IBs available that still allow board creations. If any anons know if there's any IBs in the webring that might be more likely to accept an /abdl/ board. That would be nice.
>>4704 Sorry to hear of your troubles. We still believe /abdl/ won't be a good fit for, but please feel free to use a /shelter/ thread to muster while you search for somewhere permanent if you need one, although we'll have to ask you to refrain from posting anything more than the absolutely most mild of your board's content while you're here. Can't say for sure that anywhere else in the webring would host you; zzzchan hosts many boards but you'd have to ask there directly to see if they'd be willing to take you on. Another option, if you've anyone capable among you, is to host your own site, use either Lynxchan or JSchan, and then join it to the webring.

How and Where I can join the ISIS?
5 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>877 ISIS is not holding land in Iraq and Syria. The movement have failed. Anyone with a gun and loyalty to Islam wouldn't attack Taliban, they battled the infidels and managed to establish an Islamic government. If ISIS leaders care about Islam then they would have allied with the Taliban or at the very least not fight them.
>>878 It's not IS"IS" anymore. The state has become a global movement which holds territory and is active in more than one part of the world. Besides that fact, there are still thousands in Syria and Iraq doing operations like prison breaks against the fragile Kurdish occupying state. Look at the huge prison camps they are barely managing to hold all of the IS members. It is a ticking timebomb. Taliban have taken over Afghanistan, then they put down their weapons and settled into their seat of Westphalian power. They do not want to restore the Khilafah. They protect the "religious freedom" of the mushrikeen in Afghanistan and guard their shrines and temples. They got friendly with non Muslim powers like the Russians and communist China, who invade Muslim lands and murder the Muslims. They even wanna sit in the UN and let their government be "recognized". This is not from an Islamic rule, as it is clear to anyone who examines the matter and is not blinded by euphoria from the Taliban's victory in 2021.
>>879 And if IS cells emerged what would prevent NATO from bombing them? Afghans were starving, Taliban had to do what is called diplomacy, you gangster. No one can restore the Khilafah in current circumstances, if Taliban tried to restore it they will starve or be overwhelmed by Iran Pakistan Arab countries and NATO.
>>880 Will NATO keep the whole region under control with their bombs? Is it necessary for survival to become a partner to the disbelieving world powers? You overestimate their power. But all might and all power is with Allah. No one is able to restore the Khilafah? The Muslims are incapable of forming our own state? You underestimate our power. But all might and all power is with Allah.
>>883 Try putting yourself in Taliban's shoes, they are relied on importing food and puppet governments which are not loyal to Islam won't help them. You can't jihad on an empty stomach. Restoring Khilafah is not possible these days because most Muslims don't understand its importance, that is why it's better to try convincing them rather than putting on a suicide vest. Muslims will suffer more until restoring the Khilafah is their desire. We know from the Hadiths that Khilafah will be restored, no doubt brother.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY: SATAN All praise is due to Allah Who warned us against the accursed Satan, the enemy of mankind. إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّا ۚ إِنَّمَا يَدْعُو حِزْبَهُ لِيَكُونُوا مِنْ أَصْحَابِ السَّعِيرِ Surely Satan is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy. He only invites his followers to become inmates of the Blaze. (Qur'an 35:6) Jihad ash-Shaytaan (Struggle against Satan) is an individual duty upon the Muslims. We must recognize our enemy to effectively fight him. The struggle begins with knowing the enemy. Shaytaan is the greatest deceiver who wants us to turn away from God and away from guidance. He makes evil deeds seem good and good deeds seem evil. The whispers of Shaytaan are such that one believes them to be his own thoughts, but they are in fact from Shaytaan; they must therefore be actively recognized. They include doubts in the religion, doubts in your deeds, doubts in yourself, evil thoughts about others, and anything encouraging laziness, cowardice or weakness, or sowing enmity between the believers, which he seeks to corrupt the Muslim with. The Muslim should not feel safe from the attacks of Shaytaan, because he himself says: ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُم مِّن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَعَنْ أَيْمَانِهِمْ وَعَن شَمَائِلِهِمْ ۖ وَلَا تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شَاكِرِينَ "Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful" (Qur'an 7:17) The Shaytaan seeks to distract humanity from God's path through trivial games and diversions, and through wealth and children, and through all manners of temptations. Unfortunately we see that most of humanity has fallen for his false promises.

What became of the original Christian Jewish community? Anonymous 12/14/2022 (Wed) 01:49:14 ID: 0380d8 No.22299 [Reply]
Here's a question that has always puzzled me: So we all know that a good chunk of Jewish people rejected Christ and went on to become the modern religion of Talmudic Judaism. But there were also a sizable chunk of the Jewish community that submitted to Jesus and became the first Christians. However, if you asked me to point out where Talmudic Jews are, I would only have to point to modern Israel and the various diaspora Jewish communities throughout the world. But if you asked me to point out Jewish communities or individuals descended from the original Jewish Christians, who have kept up such customs.... I would be at a total loss. So what happened to them or where are they? Did the original Jewish Christians simply intermarry amongst the Gentiles to the point of being absorbed? Or are their communities of Jewish Christians who can trace their lineage back to the original Jewish Christians that exist, but either don't have as much prominent PR as Talmudic Jews, or are simply not as numerous? And I don't mean Messianic Jews either, since this group, from what I understand, consists almost entirely of either ex-Talmudic Jews, or Gentiles who have married into or adopted Jewish customs on top of a faith in Jesus.

>>25517 >but it doesn't change the religion No, there's a very clear delineation between Judaism & Christianity in the New Testament. Christ Himself is the 'scandalon' (rock of offense in the Greek), and was anathema to the Jews. They literally killed Him over His claim to be equal to God the Father. With all due respect, I believe you're allowing your modern sensibilities to cloud your judgment on this matter. Judaism and Christianity are very distinct religions today, regardless of the deeper truths of God that extend back past before the time of Abraham. I'm also skeptical of the claim that believing Christians are somehow 'Israel' today. Jesus & the rest of the NT are quite clear that we are distinct groups, and that we have been "grafted in" as additions, not replacements. >tl;dr Just ask an orthodox Jew what he thinks about Jesus Christ, Anon. :^) >>25518 >'Judeo-Christion' is a political term not a theological one. Fair enough. But I know of a lot of nominal Christians in the evangelical Protestant branch who claim that that phrase is both completely-real, and applies to themselves directly. There are plenty of Jews themselves who are promoting this idea as well. Please understand I'm not disagreeing with you you Anon, simply pointing out the reality on the ground in many Christian churches today.
>>25519 >With all due respect, I believe you're allowing your modern sensibilities to cloud your judgment on this matter. Judaism and Christianity are very distinct religions today I get what your trying to say. But I feel that you are mistaking what is identified as Judaism today, Rabbinic Judaism, with what was practiced during the time of Christ and the Apostles, ie 2nd Temple Judaism. The consensus is actually beginning to shift and show that during that time there were multiple sects of Judaism being practiced. The most well known sects being the Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, and the Christians. The Christians being the only ones that accepted Christ as the messiah of course. However, as the others fell away after the destruction of the Temple, Christianity survived and continued the 2nd Temple liturgical practices with some modification to place emphasis on Christ. Nowhere at this time was anything resembling what we know today as Rabbinic Judaism. Rabbinic Judaism came about much later primarily as reactionary movement against the growing influence of Christianity among the remaining Jewish population. There was no complied Talmud or Masoretic text at the time of the Apostles. And these texts would not appear for another 500+ years. The Judaism today is not the Israelite religion. The Israelite religion is Christianity. Another good video that debunks the claims of Rabbinic Judaism is Marching on Zion. >They literally killed Him over His claim to be equal to God the Father. That does not invalidate the fact that the religion was the same. It simply reiterates what we already know, that some Jews refused to see Christ as the messiah and the Son of God. >Judaism and Christianity are very distinct religions today I agree with this, because Rabbinic Judaism is much younger and lacks direct continuity with the 2nd Temple. I just want to emphasis again that for the Apostles, while there was a change in some practices and views within the religion with the coming of Christ, the religion stayed the same. Our worldview is the same, and our worship is directed toward the same God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We don't say that Abraham and Moses have a different religion from each other just because the pre-incarnate Christ revealed different things to each of them, or that their worship patterns were different, one with an altar outside and one with a tabernacle. So in that respect Christ revealing Himself to the Apostles doesn't change the religion to a distinct separate religion, it simply deepens the fullness of our religion. Everything that the prophets foretold, the apostles believed and witnessed through Christ. This was the acceptance of the faith of their fathers, that the prophets were correct and God is now among them. >Just ask an orthodox Jew what he thinks about Jesus Christ, Anon. An orthodox Jew practices Rabbinic Judaism. Again this is a much later reactionary innovation. >I'm also skeptical of the claim that believing Christians are somehow 'Israel' today. >and that we have been "grafted in" as additions, not replacements The Gentiles were grafted into Israel. Israel is the spiritual body of Christ, the Church. Galatians 3:28-29. This claim that your skeptical about, has being the overwhelming consensus view of Christianity, Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox, until only recently in the 19th century.
>>25523 Hey you seem to be quite well informed on these things and my interest is in the early Quakers, basically do you know if they have any biblical authority on refusing to call their worshipful meeting houses "churches"? I know they have expedient reasons for doing so, but I don't really know if they have biblical proofs for doing so. I miss decorations and embellishments and big pipe organs. Also if you're going to have a structure that is not primarily used/owned for humble ploughwork then in what way is it any different from the other buildings whose main function is worship? Semantic autisimo is not sufficient for me to hold an idea as a divine necessity.
>>25524 To be honest I am not very familiar with the Quakers. You may have to fill me in a bit on this, but I guess I would want to know how they are defining "Church" that they would refuse to use that to define their place of worship? Is it a reaction to the idea of a controlling hand of "Big Church?"
>>25525 Basically this. But they said people who were humble shepherds made better adherents and were used to prophetise more as the result so we should get back to that somehow. Funny thing is I don't know any Quaker groups who even in fine weather would take their meetings outside any more. I assume they view dedicated church buildings as just another ritualist extravagance like all the other Catholic stuff. It's not an outrage or anything to come to this conclusion it's just that the idea of permanence of a meeting house where it's sole job is a meeting house makes it sound a lot like a church house doesn't it. A lot of them were just accomodating homes that a Quaker lived in, but I think if you're going to have a permanent structure it should be used for humble work foremost and praying in it should be it's secondary purpose. It's that or you're not respecting what the decree was trying to put across. Modern Quakers are a co-opted white guilt activism worse than Anglican/CofE (maybe "no leadership lol" lets it all get in idk) so the plain conservative variety have retreated to the hills to form tiny pockets that barely hold onto continuity. I should see what happened to the Moravians and see if their outcome has been any better. If I'm to keep on the topic of the thread and on the original followers from Judea, what other yard sticks besides faith and obedience can be used to measure belief in the first place? I expect good conduct/good works, but I've come from the prostitutes side of converting to Christ and my head is still just a fishbowl full of sin with a bubble of faith in there.

My dog lounges around and refuses to interact like most dogs do (tail wagging, greeting you at the door etc.) but he sits in the room near me like a cat does. I'd call it "aloof companionship". In other way's hes like a dog especially when it comes to begging for food or going on walks. But sometimes I cant tell if he was raised with cats originally because of his behaviour - hes a rescue dog I bought from a shelter when he was 7 years old so no idea what his upbringing was like.

I think the Satanic conspiracy is better for Christians than the racial Jewish conspiracy. The Old testament faith of ancient Judaism Jews became Christians and "those that say they're Jews but are not" are Jews that study the Talmud and the Kabbalah and according to Texe Mars worship a serpent. So the Satanic conspiracy also has an answer to the Jews as well as the Golden calf during the time of Moses.
34 posts and 13 images omitted.
The biggest dangers for Christians as of now are three things: 1. Lack of care for understanding. People want ready-made narratives to feel a sense of the bigger picture, but the devil lies in the details. "You are a good person if you believe in this conspiracy anon, you hate evil, right?" - /x/ schizo who claims Jesus is the antichrist and empaths are psychic vampires. 2. Lack of care for common ground. Some people disagree with the exact doctrine or distrust mainstream "faith" institutions. A lot of Christians feel like they are crusaders for Israel and need to stomp out different viewpoints other than their internet scribble doctrine. Justly some feel repelled and stay MAGA-con, go roider Nietzschean or even pagan. They could have been your average Christian. 3. Nobody reads the bible on their own, nobody goes to mass, nobody goes to catechisms. People claim to be representatives of their faith, but they don't even abstain from meat on Fridays. But they will shout at you for believing in "Satanism" like paranormal research, alternative medicine or that the three Magi who came to Jesus' birth were starseekers of old. There has been a big emphasis on raw discipline, obedience and intellectual shutdown from the people who are the least likely to ever go to mass regularly.
1. Satanism is best or easiest defined as worship of ego and of the self. If you find a problem with that definition, please point it out. 2. Other religions of the world are false idol worshippers - not Satanists directly. If you find a problem with that definition, please point it out. 3. Conspiracy Theory means 'a group', 'to conspire', and 'to theorise'. There's some anon here who seems to have a problem with a theory not being the same as or as proveable as 'a law' but the reason these theories have traction is because there is evidence for them to such degree that they are almost laws - to the tune of "if you let go of this apple then it will fall". If you find a problem with this definiton, please point it out. 4. The OY VEY question - whether or to what degree 'THE' Jews are a problem, and whether or to what extent something should be done. Clearly Zionist Jews are a problem. At least in America they are. One state paying hundreds of millions of dollars to another state is outside the norm and the tax payers of such a country deserve to know why. The main thing I think should be done is to insist on talking about it specifically more. People may say to me the soapbox has been tried and has not worked, or the ballot box has been tried and has not worked, but consider that a spokesman for the president holds a press conference and takes questions every other day; the weight of obligation, to ask about Israel funny money EVERY SINGLE TIME can and should be placed on them. In this specific context the racial element is neither here nor there, and in this specific context the nature or degree of Satanic is neither here nor there. 5. If you are in the group telling me Judea has no specific or urgent problem to address, then I expect to ask why the world's Satanists and hedonists seem to all pick the same rock to study under or to hide under, and I expect you to redress me with an explanation. 6. There has to be a six :^l But srsly mitzvot obeying jews are ok
>>25487 1. Lack of care for understanding can be seen more in my opponents than it can in me, even if I don't care enough to remedy what I do not understand - I'm only just learning enough to shelter my own neck. My opponents include the Archbishop of York who cannot decide if God's love is manifested paternally or maternally or through some otherkins variety (until he is forced to backpedal not because of faith but because of vested interest in his career and the filthy commoner backlash). I don't see lack of care for understanding as a problem, unless you mean situations like these. 2. The common ground was not mine to disrupt. I get that you don't necessarily concern yourself with Protestantism but this affects Catholics as well. When your religious representatives proclaim God to be non-binary, what grounds for commonality do you expect is left to be shared in? 3. No way I never heard of no meat on Fridays... What is it, and why such a decree? No really, WHY. I don't care for starseeking because obedience to stellar bodies = worship of created works - I've heard women explain their cheating on a guy because Saturn was out of alignment and such. Lots of mental new age mysticism. I don't go to mass because I've watched every castle of faith fall or become corrupted. I act ashamed of my faith in fact. Letting this happen among other things. I don't evangelise or preach to people. Prayers are private seclusion for me.
>>25506 Losing the forest for the trees. Also this board is a psyop and the owners want you to be ignorant of occult powers. Don't bother digging into the same old things, research.
>>25507 1. They know what the doctrine is. They wilfully choose to subvert it. Not just ignore it - they lie and say it confirms the things they're pushing. You know this. 2. Their dogmatism, i.e. their willingness to excommunicate you for wrongthink is stronger than mine is. If they're pushing people out then there isn't middle ground to lean into. You know this. Your psy operation, produce evidence or examples please, and your examination of the occult maybe worthwhile except that it's less powerful than to do as you said and get stuck into the bible instead. There's no "I win" to any of this stuff here either, if it wasn't worthwhile to post I wouldn't do it. I'm not gonna sit here and flex piety on you as I tried to demonstrate prior that I haven't got any.

>>994 Made simple automatic texture cropper with offsets. Just need to attach them to data files, and/maybe gui. And now I can process character tiles and implement proper systems for them. And make better grass tiles. They are flat, and I rendered all of them at the same time and just cut off the mask, now I can render each tile separately, and keep blades of grass which go outside of default rhombus, and even use any kinds of image processing on them. (hopefully it will look better). But that is an improvement for later, current grass works perfectly for a placeholder.

Note to self. Dont use 1000*1000 resolution for renders instead of 1024*1024, especially when you batch rendering something on cpu. For "less precise" stuff like trees and other decorations, it might be fine, but walls and ground tiles must be precise. But on the bright side, I figured out why grass renders always had dark spots in the middle of each tile(Pic2). I simply forgot to give renderer more bounces for transparency (it was only 4 total), so everything transparent turned into black. >now I just need to pack everything >lets search for already made simple packing algorithms >here is link, everything is explained in it! >link is for 200 page scientific paper on packing anything into a box Welp, Could have been worse. So many topics are so well researched, but its practically impossible to read through all of them. Packing even has free tools for it, but adapting them for my exact needs is the same, as doing it from what I already have. Next up, is making my tileinfo.json format to be compatible with Tiled editor. And a format for character sprites. And technically, at that point, I would be able to start actual game developement.

Community Announcements Anonymous Board owner 05/21/2020 (Thu) 16:31:32 No.13261 [Reply] [Last]
Sometimes boards do things and think that it would be nice for other boards to know about it. Every week - assuming there are events - we'll post upcoming events in the global announcement slot as smaller community announcements. If you'd like your event to be added to the rotation, post here with your: >Board >Event name >Event thread >Event date and time (please provide time in UTC at minimum plus whatever other timezones you'd like included) Board owners may suppress community announcements without also hiding all global announcements if they desire by using custom CSS to hide class "community-announcements-board-owners-feel-free-to-hide-this". I've taken the liberty of making /otter/'s Ottercine otter movie night the first event we announce. Good job, /otter/.

Looks like none of the images in the catalog work. Let's get a fresh thread in here, focused on computers! I don't have pictures at the moment to share, but I got lucky today and picked up a nice big beige computer case. I'm assembling a new personal computer from parts that I got deals on, found in the junk heap, or that I was given by friends. So, I guess it's not really a /retro/ computer, but it will be in a /retro/ case, and I plan to get an adapter which will let me use a 3.5" floppy disk drive in there. The adapter plugs into the floppy pins, and presents a USB interface to the motherboard. That adapter is under $10 USD. In fact, I've seen an adapter card that will do the same but for 5.25" floppy disk drives. So, when I have more money, I should be able to have not only a 3.5" FDD, but a 5.25" FDD in my system, running alongside new solid state drives, Blu-Ray disc drives, and of course a few regular hard drives. It should be pretty fun. Again, no pictures yet but I will share with you guys when I can. For now I'll just post one from my collection. What have you guys been up to?

I've got a PC and she's throwing "CMOS Set Wrong Display Type" "Press F1 for SETUP" "Press F2 to use Defaults" and then no matter what I'm asked for an admin password I don't have. There's no onboard VGA. I tried AGP and a video card in every PCI slot. I don't have an ISA display card to try. Reset of the CMOS battery does not work because I think is a factory password. I know this board was used in Gateway, Hewlett Packard, & Packard Bell machines (also Fujitsu/NEC but I doubt they'd set any default clown passwords). Basically what I need are lists of default passwords to manually enter into the prompt, or to know what is causing it to throw wrong display settings used. BIOS is similar (not identical) to pic related. It has a cap of 7 characters before lockout is thrown which seems odd to me as well. Also I'm happy with the celly slot-fan noise, but it's got an original radeon in there as well and it causes a ringing in the ears. Idk what to do about that really. I can put some motor oil in there but I don't want to do much else to it. The heatsink is solidly glued onto it's head and I don't want to exchange it. I can't sound deaden it either without affecting the case airflow. I'm thinking maybe a shroud mounted from the back of the next card with some sponge inside.
My bad apparently that's just what happens when the cell battery needs replacing. CMOS is now fixed. Now I can get on with more stuff. I'm gonna Gparted my drive into sections because drives over 32GB are bugged on old BIOS, but a much bigger drive is the only suitable one I have available to use. After that I'm gonna briefly try to Gotek my way thru trying to update the BIOS. Genuine boot floppy is still an option if I can't figure it out - but that'll come after Win98 installation then. It's unusual working on stuff before my time at all, but Gamers Nexus did it with a Voodoo 5 and I wanted to have a go too. I will try to keep posting on /retro/ and maybe give advice if anon want any
Also the shroud is put together but putting anything in front of the fan makes the pitch go up and get even worse. Stupid weirdness of the thing. Testing is gonna show whether there's any merit to it or not. If it doesn't work out it'll end up becoming a PSU wire concealer in some much newer rig.
What kind of stuff are you looking to do with this computer? I'm just curious. >After that I'm gonna briefly try to Gotek my way thru trying to update the BIOS. Genuine boot floppy is still an option if I can't figure it out - but that'll come after Win98 installation then. I think I have an old sampler that came with one of those drives. I imagine it would work better on a computer, since for using samples off an SD card you have to specifically use the obscure format that the sampler recognizes.

>>3326 Games & nostalgia. I want to prove that old is better than new with it in some regard. I don't know how I could use it for comms bc it'd need to have another OS. I'm not sure I've got the resources to really do anything else with it. I think I'll look for old Bible software at some point. A virtual box can basically do everything this can except maybe the radeon ~I've not looked in a while. I'd still like to prove it's useful to modern humanity in some way but apart from being a monolithic recipe book in the kitchen I'm not sure what work it can do. Pic related is similar except it's populated and turned the color of week old custard

So, what are some of your favorite memories of the old internet? Can be websites, memes, events or any other aspect of the days of Web 1.0 and 1.5 For a quick reference, here's what I would define as Web 1.0 and Web 1.5 >Web 1.0: Usenet, Geocities and Angelfire, AOL (1991-2001) >Web 1.5: Early YouTube, ED, 4chan in its "wild west" days, MySpace, YTMND, Newgrounds and the peak years of dA and (2001-2008) You also had cross-generation stuff like GameFAQs and IMDB which are still around today, although sadly IMDB's infamous message boards are gone

Anyone heard of Protoweb? It's essentially a recreation of the 90s internet with the slow as fuck speed and old google and yahoo search engines you can use. Unlike the wayback machine it actually restores old websites with all their functions, it's really fucking cool. I wish it would take off so I could finally escape this modern nightmare.
>>3252 It certainly has a novelty factor, old website recreations are always interesting for sure. There's no way this will really take off with that HTTP proxy requirement, basically a walled garden situation but /retro/, people with vintage machines will probably enjoy it though.
>>3252 This seems kind of fun, thanks
>>3252 not sure if it's the same thing, but there's a separate program made in Python that acts as a proxy for old webpages hosted on the Wayback machine. You simply run the Python server on one device, set your retro device to use the Python host machine as a proxy, and then you can browse through IE or Netscape and load archived pages of the old web. I forget the name but Tech Tangents did a video on it in his website destruction video.
Just in case this hasn't been posted here already.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread.

>>832 It's OK for us to be the aggressors, in war sense. The Rashidun caliphs understood the Quran, Muhammad peace be upon him taught them. The Prophet > scholars. Duh. It would be in the benefit of the Japanese people if we were to destroy every idol and shrine.
>>832 Allahu akbar! Are you suggesting the Prophet's ﷺ closest companions didn't understand the Qur'an? Are you questioning their faith after Allah has revealed that He is pleased with them as they are pleased with Him? The companions are the ones who preserved the knowledge of the religion, they're the reason we even have scholars today. The Prophet ﷺ said: "I was sent to join the ties of kinship, to break the idols, and to proclaim the oneness of Allah so that nothing be associated with Him." (Muslim 832) And 'Ali (Allah be pleased with him) said to Abu'l-Hayyaj al-Asadi: "Should I not send you on the same mission as Allah's Messenger ﷺ sent me? Do not leave an image without obliterating it, or a high grave without levelling it." (Muslim 969) Breaking the idols is an act of piety not limited to the prophets at all. The companions used to break the idols wherever they came upon them, from Persia to Africa. And in this they did not misunderstand anything; wasn't it the Messenger ﷺ himself who sent Jarir to destroy the false deity at Dhul Khalasa, so he went out and destroyed it? (Bukhari 3823) As for what the scholars said. Here's Ibn Al-Qayyim (Allah's mercy on him): "It is not allowed to leave places of Shirk and tawagheet (false gods) even for one day after having the ability to destroy them. These are signs of Kufr and Shirk, and this is the peak of evil. So it is never allowed to acknowledge them if you have the power. And this is the ruling for the tombstone which is on the grave which is taken as taghoot, worshipped besides Allah. And it is also the ruling for stones which people go to, to seek barakaah, kissing them and making offerings to them. It is not allowed to leave anything of them on the earth when you have the ability to remove them. A lot of these are at the same level as Lat, Uzza, Manat or are even considered more than these to those people who worship them. Wallahu musta'an." (Zad Al-Ma'ad 3/506)
Why do cruciferous vegetables produce cross-shaped patterns of flowers? Why are cruciferous vegetables one of the only plants on earth where all but a single variety are edible and even that variety is technically edible in small doses? Why are cruciferous vegetables poisonous to most living things but not to humans? Is mustard god's gift to man?
Which is worse crucifixion or rape?
>>812 Islam does not forbid attacking other religions. What is forbidden is insulting the gods of other religions, lest they respond by insulting Allah out of ignorance.
