By the way, the original TV Joker, Frank Gorshin, played an Inspector Javert type of part. In the episode there was a scene where he had to chase the Jean Valjean character. Watching Gorshin run like a runner who had a stride that looked half Eric Cartman and half mime trying to climb a ladder.

I will say that the Bible has a lot of excellent story telling, but somebody should have noted that the religious yarn meant as a guide on how to live is only useful if it made sense to the smartest to the dumbest, not just a few zealots in-between.

The zealots are not in between. All the boxcars are at the bottom.

If you mean the we, the "non-boxcars", are on one superficial color side versus boxcar's reversed superficial color side, you have not been paying enough attention. He is a color all his own.

I have found an brief interesting way to understand people, is to watch them from the "corner of your eye" Probably left over from our early pre-evolved fight or flight reflexes.

When one's common sense is threatened one knows it. Without overly ponderous intellectualism and too much calculation, fanaticism, idiocy and hypocrisy stand out clearly.

But on Judgment Day, all the "smart, wise" infidels will be beneath the feet of all the "boxcars":

Mal 4:2-3
2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. 3 Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things," says the LORD Almighty.
NIV

For a self-professed "observant" Jew, you evidently have never taken notice of the above passage, have you?

Yes, you're right! I am in a color all my own. I'm clothed in the dazzling, brilliantly white fine linen of Christ's righteosness (Rev 7:9-14; 19:14).

But mock away, mockers, for it is written about your destiny:

Prov 1:22-33

22 "How long will you simple ones love your simple ways?How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? 23 If you had responded to my rebuke,I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. 24 But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, 25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke, 26 I in turn will laugh at your disaster;I will mock when calamity overtakes you 27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm,when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,when distress and trouble overwhelm you. 28 "Then they will call to me but I will not answer;they will look for me but will not find me. 29 Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD, 30 since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, 31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. 32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,and the complacency of fools will destroy them; 33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm."
NIV

And,

Prov 19:29
29Penalties are prepared for mockers ,
and beatings for the backs of fools.

NIV

Did the proverb have any positive, practical effect on your life?

Y ou are so attached, a Buddhist term for losing one's identity, to "slogans" and silly word games, you have no concept of reality.

You remind me of the "country bumpkin" visiting his cousin in the big city. First time. Never been out among all them newfangled modern day thing-a-ma-bobs.

One day, Joe, our modern day city resident invited Clem his country cousin out to the movies. "You'll love it Clem. Everything seems so lifelike. Enjoy yourself."

So off they went. As they entered, the theater was showing cartoons as they used to do.

"Oh boy I can't believe this". Clem blurted, "Let's move up close", Clem said excitingly dragging a pretty bored Joe up to the very first row of seats.

"Look at that!" Clem pointed.

The cartoons ended and a war movie began. "Now cousin, hold on to your hat, this will amaze you!" Joe encouraged Clem.

But 5 minutes later during a fierce battle, Clem was no where to be seen. Joe looked around as best as he could in the flickering light, but could not find Clem. Than he heard some whimpering.....

Clem was hiding under his seat shivering with fear.

"Come on out, nothing to worry about. Knew we shouldn't have sat so close. Clem, you are simply confusing the images and sounds up there on the screen with real life down here"

You are like a dog that continually returns to its vomit. Attach this fact to your reality.

I'm feeble? Mr. Feeble-minded, there is no Clem on this thread or on this forum, as far I know.
