Doctor: "You should plan end of life scenarios"

This Guy: "But anyway my plan is to survive"

Delusional!

u/Sasquatch1729 Team Sinovac Sep 19 '22

Yeah, most people I know who have had cancer or some other long-term disease weren't saying "ya know what, my plan is to die a painful death after a long, drawn-out struggle that will also traumatize everyone around me."

But here's this guy with this brilliant plan to survive. If only my family and friends had come up with that idea.

Well, he feels productive praying for a living so I agree he's really delusional.

15

u/Donna-D-Dead hydroxybonermectin Sep 19 '22

Right? He won’t let them do any lifesaving measures like the tube so he’s just going to be the one person to beat Covid in prayers alone. I didn’t even see them call out the prayer warriors.

u/I_eat_candy_4_dinner Death Cake and Balloons🥳🎂🎉🎈 Sep 19 '22 edited Sep 19 '22

No need for the prayer warriors. Folks around the country have been praying for him.

Edit: correction

u/Donna-D-Dead hydroxybonermectin Sep 19 '22

They better call in the prayer warriors national Guard at this point

Yes. Strange that when they really need healing, they go straight to a satanic den of science (aka: a hospital) vs a sacred den of Sky Daddy (aka: a church). This seems to show a sorry lack of faith. Sky Daddy can not be pleased.

These people are obsessed with lions. Lions are lazy creatures that try to find a pride to join at least in part so that lionesses can hunt for them and feed them.

Lazy? He was motivated enough to find another lady and get a marriage license by December after his wife died in September. Dinner doesn't cook itself.

I am not very surprised by these people who say they blindly trust the bible, proud to be lions and despising sheep when the bible represents lions as harmful animals (which is not surprising in a people of shepherds) and says, literally and specifically that believers should act like sheep, but to ask them to understand the phrase "Jesus is my SHEPHERD" and that shepherds precisely what they do is protect the SHEEP from the LIONS, is asking too much.

u/AgentEntropy Sep 19 '22

This lion has rheumatoid arthritis & pre-existing lung damage.

Anyway, he's also got prayer warriors on his side and no one's ever died from Omicron, so it's all good.

u/jfever78 Sep 20 '22 edited Sep 20 '22

Ok, while there is some truth to this, in that females do most of the hunting, it is however the job of the male lions to maintain, mark and defend the territory from other males. This often puts them in life or death struggles. Female and male lions have different roles, that does not mean that male lions are lazy, if they become lazy they are summarily removed by other males.

Yes males sleep more and hunt less, but that's done for a myriad of reasons. They still hunt, they need to be fit, strong and injury free in case other males challenge the pride.

This is an outdated concept and is now just internet/Reddit myth at this point. Males are a lot bigger and stronger, and prides need a big strong male/s for protection. They often help with the hunting of larger game, but the females are faster and more lithe so they do the bulk of the smaller game hunting. Females are there to provide, males are there for protection and defense, they both play crucial roles.

All of this is an oversimplification of course, but it's the truth of how prides have evolved. Here is a more in depth look at the reality of lion prides:

Hillel the Elder: He quoted from Leviticus, saying, “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” Hillel then concluded: “That which is hateful unto you, do not do to your neighbor. This is the whole of the Torah; the rest is commentary.”

But, then, they will have another scripture to explain why they can.

u/MarcusD_Hellebore Sep 19 '22

I'll do you one better...
More people say they've read the Bible than actually have. In reality, the stats and studies show that the godless have greater religious knowledge than most faithful.
I think they don't read the OT...because that's the Jewish part of the Bible.
Plus, if you think social justice is bad, wait until you read many passages of the Tanakh that promote exactly that, and which don't have anything to do homosexuality!
Then again, they did miss all the times God sent plagues to the Hebrews for worshipping false idols....

I would think, were I a deity, I'd be able to come up with much more interesting punishments. At least I'd like to think I'd try to come up with something better.

Sure, I appreciate the literary connotations, the grapes of wrath and all that, but it still doesn't feel like it'd be terribly awe-inducing to the rest of my subjects. 'You've been smoted by the most powerful being in the universe - please sit uncomfortably from now on.'

u/FabulousLemon 🤏 Touch of Heart Disease Sep 20 '22

There's also the fact that there are some really long, boring lists in the old testament that make for a terribly stale narrative. There are a million things to keep track of as to whether someone is clean or unclean and what steps they must take to get back to clean once they are determined to be unclean. You have to start learning about the differences between farm animals like the fact that there isn't just one type of hoof universal to hooved animals, so one type of hoof means good eating and another means you need to go back through some crazy purification ritual to be clean and respected by God again if you dared to put that meat in your mouth.

Also the genealogies can get to be a real snoozefest. Once you get past the opening excitement of creating the universe, humanity, and floods and plagues and magic sky bread, suddenly you find yourself lost deep in the thickets of bureaucracy even without any animosity towards Judaism or Jewish people. It's incredibly dry reading. It's no wonder people can't get through it.

Nah, there's "love your neighbor" stuff in the Old Testament too:

Having read the whole profile, I feel like he’s the sort of person he’s genuinely appreciative of everything everyone does for him (which is a lot) – and he really likes to pontificate. That said, he was actively trying to get other people not to vaccinate/believe in the pandemic and is on the Trump anti-woke train, so definitely deserves nomination.

I believe in God. In my faith, prayers without action are a waste of time. God gave us brains for a reason, and not using those brains is an offense against God.

Plus, I’m pretty sure God has a sense of humor. As evidence, I bring the platypus as exhibit A.

ETA The New Testament specifies that prayer should not be done to gain acclaim from others. Praying for people is fine. Wanting glory for it is not.

u/curiousengineer601 Team Pfizer Sep 19 '22

I am so angry these people have been manipulated and duped. Many are nice people totally brainwashed by methods they don’t have the tools to resist.

The education system has failed these people. The government failed to protect them and social Media failed to police itself. So many studies have shown how powerful social media can be in spreading and entrenching false information- we are all susceptible to it.

3

u/Pandraswrath Curbside Prophet Sep 20 '22

I blame social media…to a point. I think a large part of the problem is the lack of being taught how to think critically. A lot of us have seen the exact same memes and false information as a lot of the people we find here, yet we’ve managed to not fall for it, you know? If you’re in a country that 1) has Facebook (and/or other social media) 2) you use Facebook (and/or other social media and 3) the government doesn’t mettle with what you’re allowed to see, you have pretty much the same access to credible sources as the rest of us.

I just cannot fathom how someone can believe their source is credible when every single “article” they print is headed with a rage-y clickbait header or the header is in the form of a question.

1

u/curiousengineer601 Team Pfizer Sep 20 '22

But the issue is for many people Facebook is essentially the internet, and Facebook’s algorithm drives what you see. A constant echo chamber of vaccine fear, uncertainty and doubt combined with a narrative that claims covid is just a flu and soon you have someone unvaccinated. I would like to think I would be resistant- but who knows how susceptible I might be if I was exposed to the same level of propaganda

1

u/Pandraswrath Curbside Prophet Sep 20 '22

I get that, but it’s sort of on a lot of them that they choose to make Facebook their entire internet. This guy, for instance, on slide 7 & 8 makes it obvious that he thinks Facebook is shady and is trying to suppress the “truth”. Yet here he is, using it and trusting the information he finds on it despite having a deep mistrust for the site. That seems to be a common theme on this sub, people are constantly trusting the information they find on a site while saying they have no trust in the site. At that point, the burden of the blame lies on the user who is repeatedly demonstrating willful stupidity. They’re well aware the internet exists outside of Facebook, they’ve clicked links on Facebook that directed them to somewhere that wasn’t Facebook.

I’m not saying Facebook isn’t culpable for part of this problem, but at some point we need to hold the users accountable as well. My mom is 80 and not particularly computer literate. Yet she found sites like Snopes all on her own and will happily go fact check things her friends have posted or emailed her and will provide the link that refutes their statements. I had to teach her how to provide the link, but she worked the other part out all on her own, you know? She would have eventually figured out how to post the link on her own by doing her own research, but I was handy to ask at the time.

10

u/FPOWorld Sep 19 '22

Turns out you can add more than a single hour to your life by worrying about it.

I’d say this is yet another example where Jesus was wrong, but in his defense, he was talking to his disciples almost two millennia before science. They had to listen to his broke ass for medical advice, they didn’t have compound microscopes or vaccines. Someone tell this guy that everything Jesus said doesn’t always apply to everyone in every situation if he’s still alive. 💀

My late Auntie had RA, the medication at the time was very strong and it eventually (after many years of treatment) screwed up her liver and intestines, from memory. But it did prevent her from becoming a permanent cripple at a much earlier age, so no real option but to take them. I hope they have managed to further develop the medications in the time since she passed.

I haven’t checked in on it recently, but 10 years ago or so the medication was still pretty brutal long term. I have it, but it’s not gotten too bad yet. I’m trying to control it through diet as long as I can to hold off on the long term side effects. I’m 50 now, so I’m still trying to hold off, you know?

u/AnotherSooty Sep 21 '22

Yes, I think it's the long term effect of the medications. Power to you that you have been able to control it so far through diet, I hadn't heard that there were earlier treatment strategies. My cousin was the main person who helped my Auntie with her fight with RA, I was just moral support, so wasn't directly dealing with her doctors. I wish you all the best with your fight with this horrible disease, and hopefully things have improved in the treatments in the 10 years since you last researched it.

Slide #3. Any mention of documents in the National Archives hits a little differently now.

Slide #6. Wow. Talk about not only counting your chickens before they're hatched, but counting them before you had received the delivery of eggs. I wonder how people who posted that meme felt about three or four weeks later, watching the death spike?

Slide #12. I'll say this for Red; he's a stand-up guy and is facing the end with his eyes open. "If it gets bad enough, fuck it. Don't vent me. Don't trach me. Just pull the plug." I can respect that.

It rained for days and days and there was a terrific flood. The water rose so high that one man was forced to climb on top of his roof and sat in the rain. As the waters came up higher a man in a rowboat came up to the house and told him to get in. "No thank you, the Lord will save me!" he said, and the man in the rowboat rowed away. The waters rose to the edge of the roof and still the man sat on the roof until another rowboat came by and another man told him to get in. "No thank you, the Lord will save me!" he said again, and the man rowed away.The waters covered the house and the man was forced to sit on his chimney as the rain poured down and a helicopter came by and another man urged him to get in or he'll drown. "No thank you," the man said again, "The Lord will save me!" After much begging and pleading the man in the helicopter gave up and flew away. The waters rose above the chimney and the man drowned and went to heaven where he met God. "Lord, I don't understand," he told Him, frustrated, "The waters rose higher and higher and I waited hours for you to save me but you didn't! Why?" The Lord just shook his head and said, "What are you talking about? I sent two boats and a helicopter?!" (Well known parable, author unknown]

To much literal faith is put in God for people who think this way. Critical thinking skills are sorely lacking

Quick note: Jesus is referred to as the lamb of God. Just saying.

Worrying can add hours or years to your life if you get worried enough to do things like take care of your health, eat right, exercise, or get vaccinated.

I think you're taking Luke out of context. He probably would have agreed with what I've just written.

Did this guy actually go to the University of Kentucky?

He mentions "his" Kentucky Wildcats.

If so, he'd be unique.

Many nominees and awardees seem to claim their state university as theirs, when the only way they could get on the campus was by buying a ticket to a game. His writing is better than most award-winners, but doesn't look like that of a college graduate.

Not totally sure. He’s from Kentucky, but it’s been a long time since he’s lived there.

If we can't see the goatee, how else would we know about his co-morbidities?
