|Family / How I Resigned Fromthe “one Man – Onewife” Club by F00028: 10:34am On Sep 01|
Maybe it’s midlife crises or maybe it’s
something else, but recently the topic of
polygamy keeps finding its way into
conversations with my friends. And because I
always insist that one woman was enough for
me, they call me the President of the ‘One man
– One wife’ club. But something happened
some weeks ago that changed all of that.
You see my preference for monogamy is not
rooted in any belief in its superiority as a
matrimonial system rather it is based simply
on my fear of fatigue. In my calculation, if
having a wife requires some considerable
amount of work – you know, the kind of work
that husband do on their wives (I’m trying hard
not to be vulgar here) – then having 2 wives
will automatically mean twice the work, 3
wives thrice the work, etc. and since with only
one wife I am at a point of equilibrium, I felt
getting a second wife will tilt the balance
towards fatigue. And because I believe strongly
that marriage is meant to be a pleasant
experience, then there shouldn’t be any room
for fatigue in it, hence my preference for
monogamy. But apparently, I was wrong.
intimate relations had no respect for math logic
after all. I was made to realize this first by a
group of polygamists and then later by a
published scientific paper.
First the polygamists…
Some weeks ago, I was in a conversation with
some senior colleagues at the office (all of
them with multiple wives) and one of them
mentioned how his intimate drive effectively
doubled after he married his second wife. [In
case you are wondering why we were having
that kind of conversation at the office, well, we
were on strike then]. As soon as the guy said
that, all the others supported him with similar
experiences of their own. One of them, a three
star General (that’s polygamists’ lingo for
having three wives) said he is so virile now
that he can actually service all three wives in
one night. And he added, looking pointedly at
my now incredulous face that he too wouldn’t
have believed back when he had just one wife,
that he would actually “perform” much better
with three. He concluded that it was a mystery
only Generals could understand. Apparently,
having one wife didn’t make me a one star
Then the science…
A couple of days ago, I was searching the web
for something completely unrelated and
accidentally stumbled upon the findings of a
research that was conducted way back in the
1970s. The experiment was initially conducted
on rats but was subsequently carried out on
other higher mammals all with very similar
results. The summary of the findings as aptly
put by Glenn Wilson in his “The Great Sex
“The males of most mammals have a definite
urge towards seeking variety in their in intimate
partners. If a male rat is introduced to a female
rat in a cage, a remarkably high Reproduction rate
will be observed at first. Then, progressively,
the male will tire of that particular female and,
even though there is no apparent change in her
receptivity, he eventually reaches a point where
he has little apparent libido. However, if the
original female is then removed and a fresh one
supplied, the male is immediately restored to
his former vigor and enthusiasm.”
That essentially was what “three star General”
was talking about. Scientists call it the
Coolidge Effect. It was named after the 30
president of the United States, Calvin Coolidge.
It was said that the President and his wife
were visiting a government farm in Kentucky
one day and after arrival were taken off on
separate tours. When Mrs. Coolidge passed by
the chicken pens she paused to ask her guide
how often the rooster could be expected to
perform his duty. ‘Dozens of times a day’ was
her guide’s reply. She was most impressed by
this and said rather mischievously, ‘Please tell
that to the President.’ When the President was
duly informed of the rooster’s performance he
was initially dumbfounded. Then a thought
occurred to him. ‘Was this with the same hen
each time?’ he inquired. ‘Oh no, Mr President, a
different one each time’ was his host’s reply.
The President nodded slowly, smiled and said,
”Tell that to Mrs Coolidge!’ And thus the
phenomenon was named the Coolidge Effect.
With this discovery there’s nothing left for me
to do than to honorably resign my position as
the president of the “One man – One wife”
club. And in case you are reading this and you
happen to be my wife, I’ll like to assure you
darling that I am still a member of the club I
am just not the president anymore.

Mintayo:that's 'cos you have nothing to show.
Jesus Christ didn't teach: that he was divine, about any trinity, or that he came to die for any original sin.
that new kind of christianity has paul as its founder.
|Islam for Muslims / Re: For Those Considering To Leave Islam for Christianity by F00028: 10:39pm On Dec 21, 2013|
Mintayo:Jesus the Christ, the Son of Mary revealed no such thing.
who told you that? definitely not Jesus Christ.
"Let the reader contrast the true Christian standard with that of Paul and he will see the terrible betrayal of all that the Master taught.... For the surest way to betray a great Teacher is to misrepresent his message.... That is what Paul and his followers did, and because the Church has followed Paul in his error it has failed lamentably to redeem the world.... The teachings given by the blessed Master Christ, which the disciples John and Peter and James, the brother of the Master, tried in vain to defend and preserve intact were as utterly opposed to the Pauline Gospel as the light is opposed to the darkness."
-Rev. V.A. Holmes-Gore: Christ or Paul?
"The attitude which Paul himself takes up towards the Gospel of Jesus is that he does not repeat it in the words of Jesus, and does not appeal to its authority.... The fateful thing is that the Greek, the Catholic, and the Protestant theologies all contain the Gospel of Paul in a form which does not continue the Gospel of Jesus, but displaces it."
-The Quest for the Historical Jesus, Albert
“Paul, the founder of Christianity, the writer of half the NT, almost never quotes Jesus in his letters and writings."
-“The World Religions”, p 330
"Paul's words are not the Words of God. They are the words of Paul- a vast difference."
-Bishop John S. Spong, Episcopal Bishop of Newark. (Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, p. 104, Harper San Francisco, 1991)

Mintayo: Lies and Misconceptions. Paul is nt d founder of Christainity,Jesus is!what you have today is all paul:
-divinity of Jesus,
-salvation by faith.
"Paul made Christianity the religion of
Paul, not of Christ Paul threw the
Christianity of Christ away, completely
turning it upside down. making it just the
opposite of the original proclamation of
- Soren Kierkegaard, The Journals.
"The writings of Paul have been a danger
and a hidden rock. the causes of the
principal defects of Christian theology."
