Dillards 50: The big 5-0!

I wonder how long it will take Cross Church to drop them? They're clearly not bringing in the attention or people CC was probably anticipating. I can't imagine they're much besides dead weight at this point.

Yeah, I think myth is a fourth option -- not in that Jesus didn't exist at all, but that his life and teachings have been embellished since his death.

I’ve actually heard some pretty compelling arguments lately for the idea that Jesus was a myth and never actually existed. Pretty interesting stuff! But yeah, at the very least it’s incredibly easy to argue that his words were embellished, changed, or outright invented after his death, which kind of invalidates the whole ‘only three choices’ argument.

Yeah, I've read some of the Jesus myth arguments. I think the evidence is pretty strong though that there was someone named Jesus from Nazareth who had some kind of a ministry, was baptized, and was crucified. To me one of the more compelling arguments for his existence is the fact that people outright made up the story about the census making Joseph and Mary travel to Bethlehem. The story about his baptism and his method of death were also fairly embarrassing for early Christians and seems unlikely to be completely fabricated. To quote Christopher Hitchens (who actually kind of agrees with Lewis's trilemma),

Quote

Now, there is on the historicity point, there're only two reasons to suppose that there may have been the figure of some kind of deluded rabbi present at that time.

The first is the fakery of the story. The fakery itself proves something. The prophecy says this man must be born in the house of David, of David's line, in David's town. Means he must be born in Bethlehem. Jesus of Nazareth is well known to have been born in Nazareth.

In order to get him to Bethlehem a huge fabrication has to be undertaken. A census is proposed by Cesar Augustus. No such census ever took place. The people of the region were not required to go back to their hometown to be registered. That's never happened. Quirinius was not governor of Syria in that year as the gospels say.

None of the story of the Nativity is true in any detail, and not one of the gospels agrees with each other on this fabrication. But the fabrication itself suggests something If they were simply going to make up the whole thing and had never been such person then why not just have him born in Bethlehem right there and leave out the Nazarene business.

So the very falsity of it, the very fanatical attempt to make it come right suggests that yes, there may have been a charismatic deluded individual wondering around at that time.

I was actually reading up about this recently after seeing an interesting reddit thread.

So how are the Dillards living? Who pays for their housing, food, utilities, health care and other needs?

 

There is no CO for these fools, so who is supporting them?
 

Get a job, Derick- stop talking and start taking care of your family, and if you can't do such, your wife needs to-

Maybe I'm just being a nit pick here, I know she's not much of a photographer, but Jill picked a grainy picture with really bad lighting to post. Not as grainy as initially thought but still.  

I think she is trying compensate for something.

I'm guessing the Bank of Kim Jong Boob? I would hope humpers aren't still sending them donations.

Honestly, from now on everytime someone feels sorry for me because I am single, I'll tell them to take a look at this topic. Poor Jill. Can you imagine, being married to Derick and.....having to share a bed with him every night? :my_cry:

Her photos of him always look like his last known photo.

Don't know if they can drop him while he's paying, but they can refuse to offer him a job or help him get one later.

Idk, he seems to have finally found a group as awful as he is so maybe they will last this time.

My sister and her husband have always referred to each other by their names in front of their daughter (whose 2) but the other day when my niece wanted something she was like, "Dad... Dad?" and getting no answer, upped it by shouting, "MIKE... MICHAEL!!" 

One of my coworkers said her 4-year-old calls his dad by his first name since he hears her do it. He also seems like a mini extra sassy version of her and is very dramatic. Like he apparently told his grandpa they needed to have a serious conversation over coffee, and sat his grandpa down to have a serious chat about playtime.

If he's anything like me, he probably doesn't know how to interact with kids properly because he just hasn't been around many of them.

I guess he can’t ask his wife for advise on how to interact with kids because she’s a woman? What a wanker.

Derdick: Hey Jill, is this power point and suit appropriate for small children?

Jill: *stares at him* Are you fucking with me? Hell no, you idiot. Here, bring our Christian-themed puppets. And look for some short cartoons on YouTube or Veggie Tales to replace that power point crap. (ok she’d never say that but a girl can dream)

It’s just so weird a father with so many little kid in-laws wouldn’t know how to interact with children. He clearly doesn’t think it’s worth bothering to try or learn. A freaking power point presentation in a suit from a wedding? Get some puppets or something.

This is like when I was a pre-school summer camp counselor when I was 18, and the lead teacher (she was probably in her 50s) wore platform shoes everyday. To a classroom full of kids ages 2-3. And she kept insisting she “doesn’t know what to do with this age” because she normally taught 4-year-olds. YOU HAVE GROWN CHILDREN. They were little once!! And you never took a child development course? She had more experience with tiny children than me and the other junior counselor (who was 16ish and an asshole).

No, Babs had temporary custody since he was months old, Jenelle tried to get it back but had to settle for visitation when Babs had proof Ensley tested positive for THC at birth, so Babs has permanent custody and she may lose Kaiser too. 

I know Nathan’s mom filed for emergency custody but she dropped it. When is Jenelle going to finally lose custody of that kid?

Babs told her Kaiser sounds like a beer!

(I know what it really means)

Babs is my spirit animal. "WELL JENELLE"

“I see you Jenelle, havin’ a la-di-da time with your BOOYYYYYYYFRIEND!!”

That woman puts up with too much shit. I wish she could take in Kaiser and Ensley, but I get that a woman in her 60s might not have the energy and finances to raise two tiny children and any other babies on drugs Jenelle pops out. I’m glad MTV fired David, but fans are pissed it took this long. He’s shown lots of violent, scary, abusive behavior on the show, who knows how he acts behind closed doors. And now the production crew doesn’t want to go out to “the Land” to film Jenelle. And it’s like okay if you’re scared for your life what about the kids??

I think perhaps they did not have a lot of success converting the "Arab ladies," and the LBQT invite looks like it's heading south, so what are the odds that the next fashion/cultural change from the Dullards will be a kippah for Dwreck, a Star of David necklace for Jillymuffin, a sudden fondness for Yiddishisms, and an invite to their new series of seminars —complete with latkas and kasha varniskes—on "Y'shua, the True Messiah?"

I will lose my shit if they do this. We know Jill has no problem appropriating Jewish culture. No Jill and Dwreck, Moses would throw the Ten Commandments at you in a fit of rage. Noah wouldn’t let you on the ark. Jesus thinks you’re an asshole.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
