Why don’t the Jews just apologize for crucifying Christ so we can all just move on from it?

Every country has a different Chief Rabbi, and the one in Israel isn't recognized by anyone as a universal head of Judaism. I'll tell you more -- even in Israel there are two Chief Rabbis; one Ashkenazi and one Sephardi.

They think they are performing some kind of job that has a purpose. For God? For Satan? No. Neither one, they just think it might have some value to resist.
There literally no value at all, and they don't even know what enemy it is that they face. They will attempt to label their enemies and judge them, but they don't live the life, so they know not what they even judge.
They will accept judgment from others, and it becomes this pretend game like Arthas picked up the Frostmourne and then people who never even read Lord of the Rings began to take over while the actual achievers who did retired. Pretty soon they are writing Arthas out of existence and don't know what to do with a zombie undead Lordaeron kingdom because they decided all kinds of dumb writing decisions. Or like Alice in Wonderland and how the Red Queen just offs everyone's head that she doesn't like for any or no reason at all. Pretend game.

Only God knows the true Law, and there is no law above anyone where there is love and forgiveness of sins. Only The Lord is above all there.

I have a list of urgent things I need to ask God. Here it is.
What I want (and they pretend is impossible) is game boxes back on store shelves. The problem is that Steam has a monopoly on them and the boxes hide the Steam logo and do not show that Steam account is required and thereby a Monopoly. I still like Dark Souls 3 and want to play it again with online, but not with Steam, and on my Computer with mouse and keyboard.

The other problem is even bigger problem. They turned off my Computer's ability to update Windows 10. Something has jacked it all up and midway during update now, it just stops and refuses to update anymore.
On top of this, the video card drivers also do this now for my Nvidia video card.

Apparently they are just really greedy corporate bastards. Like the antichrist is said to be. I don't know how to write my own operating system, I just use Linux. But I wanted to use Windows 10 someday.

Doom 2016's game box is basically the same thing as Doom Eternal's on other stores. Which actually says,
Which I can't even believe. They did this while we weren't watching and were too busy with our lives to notice. If they would have put Steam logos on the boxes, we would have seen it sooner.

They aren't. In the photo you can see they're standing closer to the camera which gives the illusion of being taller than they really are. Also the angloif nations sent their tallest soldiers for this photoshoot and then demanded to order them by height. The other nations don't give a shit about height and instead sent their best fighters for the photo. They could have sent their tallest soldiers who would have overshadowed the other soldiers but again only the insecure Angloids care about height. Now over a century later the thing people who see this photo think about is height and don't understand the more important and relevant part of the photo which is the superior fighters the other nations used for the photo.

So you do understand Jesus Christ is GOD or piece of shit liar there is no gray area. History proves Jesus Christ existed why not just take HIS word for it and believe.
Yeah, this is part of why Islam is so dumb. They try to say Jesus was neither a liar nor God, just a very important prophet. Even Jesus Himself claimed to be God.
Every other man made religion makes no sense, why would GOD need anything from us we need him. There is people who still believe you go to heaven because you love GOD when your only chance to go to heaven is because GOD loved you that in HIS mercy he came to Earth and paid for our sins so we could go back to HIM. I don't see the difficult part of believing HIM.
>History proves Jesus Christ existed

>why not just take HIS word for it and believe
Because he said he would return in glory and the world would end within the lifetime of his contemporaries, and it didn't happen. See: Matthew 10:23, 16:28, 24:34; Mark 8:38-9:1, 13:30; Luke 9:27, 21:32
The Gospels (all 4 of them by different authors offering first-hand accounts), Roman historian Flavius Jospehus, and the Babylonian Talmud (which was written by Pharisees contains a footnote saying Jesus was a sorcerer, which tracks with Pharisee accusations) all are contemporary sources written within the same lifetime as Jesus saying Jesus was a real person.

By comparison, we only have two contemporary sources saying Socrates was a real person (Plato and Xeno). Like Jesus, Socrates didn't write down any of what he said or did, and like Jesus, he had his own group of disciples helping spread his ideas. There is more historical evidence for Jesus than there is for Socrates. Yet if someone said they don;t believe Socrates was a real person they'd look at you like you grew a third head. While if someone says they don't think Jesus was a real person they go, "Oh, he's an atheist or something". It's silly.

generally you shouldn't criticize someone for not knowing anything about a subject if you aren't going to demonstrate knowledge of that subject at all

you are mental
You are right, 1 Peter mentions that Mark is actually Peter's son btw.
Well, this is coming from someone who doesn't believe in the Q theory, but John's not one of the Synoptic Gospels in that he didn't reuse materiel from Mark and wrote his account of Jesus' ministry on his own interdependently. For instance the Synoptics (Mark Luke and Matthew) put focus on Jesus' early ministry in Galilee while John puts more focus on Jesus' actions in Jerusalem. It's also about the target audience too, Mark and Matthew's gospels were circulated first when the early church was still primarily Jews, so Matthew especially links Jesus with messianic prophecies in the OT. Luke (Which when combined with Acts forms a cohesive narrative of the early church) was written later for a primarily gentile audience (Romans and Greeks) whom Luke and Paul had been doing missionary work with. John came even later, when the church had shifted even more toward gentiles, and therefore also concerned itself with speaking of gentile concepts (such as "the Word" in the first chapter which is equally applicable to Platonic philosophy as it is to Jewish theology). Since John was written independently it's not one of the Synoptics.
what if both gospels were written by the same author?
Why would they be? And if so, why let someone else take credit for it?

At what point did Americans start blatantly hating railroads and consider it "communism"?
Was it with Gen X, or Millennials? If I go to local railclub it has Boomers or Zoomers, but Millennials and Xoomers are almost no where to be seen. Hell, my hard-core Reaganite boomer grandfather absolutely loves trains and wish they were more prevalent

how did the USSR successfully present itself as anti-imperialist when they just finished annexing large swathes of land in eastern europe?
Occupied, not annexed.
But to answer your question, they simply pretended that all those countries wanted to be communist and did everything voluntarily.
It didn't
Apart from Mao's animosity over the Khruschev thaw the Sino-Soviet split was substantially about the Soviets malding over the Chinese constantly calling the Soviets imperialists for doing this

You sound like a deranged dumbfuck who suffers from massive cognitive dissonances. Eat lead and drink bleach, nigger.
The french bourgeois have always loved english and hated french. very deeply. and of course the middle class, being manufactured to idolize the bourgeoisie and its infatuation with commerce, copies the bourgeois.
this dates back from the revolutionary times, because the french bourgeois like montesqieu and voltaire always tried to larp as the british, they pushed the british enlightenment in France, and 200 years later, the bourgeois are flooding french entertainment with english. Since the last 10 years, ie since the mass production of internet content, they stopped translating english words in their entertainment products.

So know you have the average roastie and her orbiters speaking half english words in casual discussions and they cant even translate the words in french. in fact they dont even think of using french words lol.
The best part is of course that those NPCs keep saying they are free thinkers lol, when all they spout out is the atheist clichés made up by the british bourgeois centuries ago lol.

Even the ordinary items bought for groceries are full of english names now. The drones in megacorps have stopped translating english words. for instance they dont label soap as savon, but they just use the word ''soap'' now
Spaniards defend more their language against english, than any other country.

When my prayers got answered. I kneeled and dropped everything to find ultimate truth. I have experienced the christ. I felt his pain of crucifixion. The christ is truely risen in me. Through fasting and prayer I have achieved unity with The father. I have been crowned a priest and I have come to gather my people so that I may bring them home. Our immortal kingdom of heaven awaits us and I light the bat signal to call you guys home. Those who are of my tribe will feel my energies. Paradise awaits us brothers. Seek the truth of alchemy. The philosophers stone is real. The kingdom of heaven lies in the sacred heart of Jesus christ. He is in you. Do not fall for the Jesus psychosis. You are not christ its just christ showing you what he experienced. You have christ in you but you are a new unique character in this movie of God. Be wary of Satan. Face your trial in the wilderness. Have faith son of man. You can do it. You wield the same word of God that God used to make you. Give the gift of life back to him so that you may live forever.

Seriously the Vietnamese communists tortured our soldiers, murdered prisoners and humiliated us. When we normalized ties with these sobs in the 1990s a prerequisite should have been them apologizing to us and to apologize for them causing a refugee crisis. Now the good thing is these Vietnamese refugees are based and support America and conservative values but they are here because a communist government toppled south Vietnam a liberal democracy that stood by America. Since the current commie regime in power is illegitimate they should be forced to apologize for their crimes.

i wanted to say heaven but it sounded cringe so i went with god and communist vietnamese are not atheist, they definitely believe in a god just not the abrahamic one
Religion is persecuted in Communist Vietnam, just as with all other Communist countries. A big reason for the persecution of the Montagnard, other than them being "ethnically inferior savages," is that they're Christian instead of atheist as is State doctrine.
ong troi' is a conceptual idea of god not a religion and im pretty sure most viet believe in that
montagnards are persecuted because they sided with america, the commies know they harbour an eternal desire to betray the viet race and state and must be dealt with, very based prudent leadership

When the first thing their president did is to claim 90% of the votes you know they were not going to be 'muh freedum' at all, not to mention his cabinet is full of his family members.

Socrates didn’t call himself a philosopher, other people did
So what does an Elite do when they come across the fact they they’re believing in a lie?
Plato thought that lying was morally evil and had a low opinion of rhetoric, mostly because he thought that a philosopher should always seek the truth, above everything else. Same reason why he disliked poetry, he saw it as an imperfect representation of an already imperfect world that is merely a shadow of the true world of ideas.
And yet his entire Republic is founded on lies and lying

Fucking castillian niggers. Galiza is Portuguese!
Yeah, Philip II of Spain (I of Portugal) was considered one of the best kings in Portuguese history at that time thanks to how much freedom he gave to the Portuguese nobles. As long as they paid taxes, he let them do whatever the fuck they wanted.
The problem started a lot later, when old allies (England and Netherlands) became enemies and the taxes became too big for the Portuguese to tolerate.

>only 10% of West Euros were serfs
Is that a fact? Doesn't sound right.
where do you think you are?
You're using very modern parlance which does not properly describe how the land was treated. For example even though all the land was owned, people often still had rights to large swathes of it, due to command land. Common land was still owned, like everything else, but the right to use the land was held in common by many people. Incidentally, a bit of etymology is that the word "commoner" is derived from the commons, it was originally a word that described a person who depended upon the common land.

Why does democracy always lead to populism and dictatorship?
27 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
1. Because it was never designed to work in every context and in every society. Liberal democracy works for some societies, mainly rich, literate and secular societies. However, in most of the world where different tribes are at each other's throats because there aren't enough resources for everyone, "majority rule" means "we have more machetes than you" and "will of the majority" means "we outnumber you and we agree that you should die".
2. The point of democracy is not to do whatever the mob wants, but to provide a system that cross-checks abuses of power. Which is incompatible with capitalism.
3. Iran is not the best example for a failed democracy. In fact, Iran is probably more democratic now than it has ever been in history.
Humans naturally flock to the charismatic leader. Even Kings & dictators started out like this
That's not what that image is saying.
That's where your wrong, the plan never changes, because the people truly in power never lose their thrones.
