As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    What may look like a contradiction may, in truth, be only a paradox.
    I think I get it! The spiritual celebrations surrounding "pagan" and "Christian" holidays are the same! They are simply two different celebrations of life and love viewed from different perspectives.
    I want to hear it from your lips;
    What's it worth shining for?

      And rightly so.
      Without Yule and Saturnalia, the holidays would be boring and dreary.

          I'm impressed.

          I had no idea you were able to do this.

            I like the way God handled Saturnalia -- timing His son's birth right next to it, eclipsing it into obscurity.

            Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone [Jesus Christ] was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

            Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,


            The day Farrah Fawcett died, Michael Jackson also died, and Farrah's death was overshadowed by Michael's.
            THE BIBLE SAYS IT, THAT SETTLES IT.

                Its ok to like your fantasy. Just don't delude yourself into thinking it to be reality.

                Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone [Jesus Christ] was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

                Edward 3:45 Thou hacketh absurdly (gosh darnnit) nonsense.

                Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
                Armenians 5:5 What are thou talkingeth about?

                The day Farrah Fawcett died, Michael Jackson also died, and Farrah's death was overshadowed by Michael's.
                And?

                      To save us all from Satan's power when we had gone astray.

                      "This day" = December 25th.

                      Here's a mental exercise:

                      OCT 31 = DEC 25

                      In what context is this true?
                      Nah. The 25th of December has nothing whatsoever to do with Jesus, but is when Mithras was born and for booze-ups to celebrate Mithras' birthday and not Jesus' birthday. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mithraism

                      And the 25th of December is the date of latest sunrise where Santa lives near Oulu in Finland, or in Reykjavik.
