    Don't know if you have noticed - you are able to "forward to the right people" too. Hint, hint.

    BTW, where is that "riddle" you mentioned? Got a reference?

    Hello johan777,

    If you've read any of my other posts then you will realize that I am not a callous or mean individual but I have to say that this is not the kind of Forum that takes the "carrot-in-front-the-nose" mechanism very kindly. It's a ridulous and stupid ploy that is utilized all over the the other "para' Forums to a nasty fault. Don't do it here- it's NOT welcomed nor is it appreciated. This group is way beyond that!

    You wnat a good dialogue then present something worth discussing and do not go fishing for idiots who may fall for such garbage just for your own amusement. This is a fairly serious environment and you can tell by just what gets responded to and what does not. Other than that I do welcome you to the Forum and hope you stay to learn how subjects can and do relate to the reality of things pertinent to the state of the world and it's propensity for being duped by falsehoods. The answers to your inquiry do not exist. If you need follow up to that statement I will gladly supply them.

    Regards, glider.

    Good day to you; other people might differ with you about "stupid and ridiculous and a carrot in front of the nose and that answers doesn't exist"
    Thank you anyway for your comment.
    I am dead serious about my statement but i don't know how to get it to the right people to investigate this. This would also answer many question about UFO's. If you can help in this respect i would appreciate.

    OK, I asked you where this "riddle" is in the bible in my reply above ... I also asked you again in the private message you sent me ... last time I am asking - where is this "riddle" located in the bible? I have enough books here to begin looking, but I have no clue what you are talking about.

    The riddle is the riddle of Samson. You might not get the connection between the two. All i want is that someone see if it is true as i believe.

    Is this what you are talking about? Explain to me why you would think it's the Sphinx.



    The first biblical account of the riddle occurs in the 14th Chapter of Judges, 12th verse. When Samson went down to Timnath, among the Philistines, to marry his wife, he gave a seven days' feast. On a previous occasion, when courting his wife, he had slain a lion. On returning to the feast, he found that the bees had made a nest in the lion's carcass. He broke up the nest and took the honey. Then, on arriving at the marriage feast, he told the Philistines that if they could guess his riddle, he would give them thirty suits of clothes. This was Samson's riddle:

    Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness.

    The Philistines worked on the riddle for five days. There was great excitement over it. Finally they got Samson's wife to tell the secret, and they came to Samson on the seventh day, and gave the answer:

    What is sweeter than honey, and what is stronger than a lion?

    When they claimed the wager, Samson made the famous answer: "If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle." To pay the Philistines for their dishonesty in stealing the answer, Samson went down to Ashkelon, slew thirty Philistines, and brought back their clothes and gave them to them.

    All nations, since Samson's feast, or since the pyramids were built, have been interested in riddles or enigmas.


    You can look at this too:
    http://media.wiley.com/product_data/excerpt/67/04716481/0471648167.pdf

    Whatever its version, the Riddle of the Sphinx is the prototype for all riddles (and puzzles, for that matter).

    Out of the eater came forth meat and out of the strong came forth
    sweetness.
    He gave the Philistines seven days to come up with the answer, convinced
    that they were incapable of solving it. Samson contrived his riddle
    to describe something that he once witnessed—a swarm of bees that made honey in a lion’s carcass. Hence, the wording of the riddle: the “eater” = “swarm of bees”; “the strong” = the “lion”; and “came forth sweetness” = “made honey.” The deceitful guests, however, took advantage of the seven days to coerce the answer from Samson’s wife. When they gave Samson the correct response, the mighty biblical hero became enraged and declared war against all Philistines. The ensuing conflict eventually led to his own destruction.

    Hello johan,

    My apologies for being such a careless jerk! I do believe you to be sincere and therefore:

    Wikipedia:

    It was said in late lore that Hera or Ares sent the Sphinx from her Ethiopian homeland (the Greeks always remembered the foreign origin of the Sphinx) to Thebes in Greece where she asks all passersby the most famous riddle in history: "Which creature in the morning goes on four legs, at mid-day on two, and in the evening upon three, and the more legs it has, the weaker it be?" She strangled and devoured anyone unable to answer. Oedipus solved the riddle by answering: Man—who crawls on all fours as a baby, then walks on two feet as an adult, and then walks with a cane in old age. By some accounts[9] (but much more rarely), there was a second riddle: "There are two sisters: one gives birth to the other and she, in turn, gives birth to the first." The answer is "day and night" (both words are feminine in Greek).

    Sorry i missed this part of your discussion. Yes this is the riddle. It is difficult to explain why i think so, i would rather say it is a revelation due to studying the bible for more that 30 years and meditating. I received a Doctor of Divinity degree as a result of my studies.

    Hello johan777,

    Thank you for your patience with me. You may indeed post some of your ideas and along with that I will say that my own studies have left me with the feeling that the Bible is somehow incomplete! Don't ask me why, it's just an intuition that I have come away with. The Gnostics have retained in me a similar sense with the general themes, although present in both, seeming to possess the usual symbolic ambiguity of say, alchemic writings and other ancient and occult sources.

    The main issues appear to be that language changes along with it's referenced meanings. When coupled with the attempts of the writers of the time to disguise issues (for safety's sake) using poetic licenses in place those during historical eras the job of interpretation can become quite confounding. In this I'm sure you can agree. So yes, by all means, feel free to inject any thoughts you may have but try to be clear in how any points you may relate bear pertinent fruit WRT this day and age.

    Regards, glider.

    It would seem that the "Leftovers" category would be best suited. It sounds like your topics could be quite busy indeed.
