  • @Alan MacDonald I did record the audio, and I'm looking at the best way to sync it with the slides. Looks like SlideShare doesn't have that cool audio sync feature they used to!

  13. 13. Now I know for certain we are definitely in the last day's. All like sheep have gone astray, each after his own way. This is not judging people, it's a warning. Because of what you're doing, nothing but a bunch of fornicator's like rabbit's, you will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. But then, why would you want any part of heaven? That's not where your heart is. But you will get what's coming to you.
  14. 14. Z E R O S U M "It may be exciting for them but it's not love. They can't have the intimacy you get from a relationship with one person. If they do get something close to that with one of their partners then the others are not having it."
  15. 15. D E L U D E D "... this just sounds like people too afraid to really love someone, trying to pretend they don't care."
  16. 16. U N M A N LY "...this behaviour is not masculine. Men are dominant and possessive by nature. Any man who is ok with his girlfriend/wife sleeping with another guy on a regular basis is not a man." DON’T BE A GIRLY MAN!
  17. 17. ? "There are people who are reverting back to prehistoric times. Some social classes of homo sapiens seem to be de- evolving into homo-erectus. These social classes are beginning to exhibit many of the social characteristics of lower animal life forms, i.e. getting closer to the origin ancestors instead of continuing to evolve into higher intelligence."
