    "American" Karate -- Just what is it?

    I've found throughout my martial arts journey that it is extremely important to know that your master instructor is still training and learning new things. That said, if the art s/he teaches is a *fit* for you, it doesn't really matter what *style* it is -- as Bill stated above: "it doesn't...

    Political Use of September 11

    MichaelEdward. The Study has been quiet because some of the more vocal denizens have been absent. We're striving to correct that.:ultracool As to political use of September 11, as a New Yorker I'm here to tell you that the television and radio ad campaigns and speechifying done in...

    Long 4

    The reason I came to kenpo is because my former instructors, both in tkd and a *mud* (as my master instructor likes to put it) art kept telling me that I knew "enough". Well, exactly what is "enough"? That poor woman who was killed may have thought she knew "enough". I used to view black belt...

    Long 4

    Sorry Dr. Chapel. I didn't see this until today. Ask anyone who knows me. I don't whine.:) Teej and Sigung 86: Further to the discussion of *combat testing* a fighter: what about those of us who, when confronted with a dangerous situation, were/are able to talk our way out of the fight...

    Striking Serpents Head

    IMHO, that would work very well. However, it wouldn't be Striking Serpent's Head then, would it. Sounds more like Aiming the Spear.

    Religious conservatives oppose cervical cancer vaccine...say it might cause sex.

    Well, from a layperson's perspective, there's too much information. My doc told me that even if one person reports something as a side effect, it is documented in the literature that accompanies the medication. Yeesh. Glad you agree with me concerning the important stuff.:)

    Religious conservatives oppose cervical cancer vaccine...say it might cause sex.

    I'm not saying that all people who home school are isolationist. I have a student who was home schooled, and an only child. He had no idea of how to interact with children his own age and wasn't introduced to any outside activities until he was five. He's a bright child, but the other kids...

    Religious conservatives oppose cervical cancer vaccine...say it might cause sex.

    There are enough people in this country who home school their children and hold them apart for the most part from society in general, including not allowing them to be vaccinated for many of the reasons given in this thread and for religious reasons (e.g. Christian Scientists) so that a...

    history of halloween

    Interesting stuff. As Rich pointed out, I also knew of some of it before, but there were tidbits here and there which were quite interesting. Unfortunately the celebration of Halloween has become license for bad behavior on the part of some people -- I have to go detach my mailbox so it...

    who's religious?

    As an adherent to *one of the Abrahamic faiths*, I will tell you that you are absolutely correct. [See the story of the golden calf.] Hence the reason that we do not have saints nor are there any 'graven images' permitted in our houses of worship. As to who is religious. My take on this is...

    The Bible, Hell, and Other Topics of Casual Delight

    OBSERVATION: I think part of the problem is that you and the others who are being the most vociferous in this thread are freely citing and quoting from your *pet* versions of the Bible. Therefore, of course your arguments are supported by you but discounted by the others. For the sake of...

    The Bible, Hell, and Other Topics of Casual Delight

    Herry, "...I was stunned and amazed..." :) Your elucidation of my muddled musings was on target. As to our friend Mantis, I do believe he was referring to Aramaic which does, in fact, predate Hebrew and is the language upon which [classical] Hebrew is heavily based. There is a huge...

    The Bible, Hell, and Other Topics of Casual Delight

    Oy vey! Now you're converting me. See Canuck's post if you don't believe me. *Tiger sighs* In the wisdom of all your 23 years on this Earth, I must give you points for persistence. My younger son is your age and similarly convinced that he is correct on many levels.:) [Why am I Kenpo...
