What are Conies in the Bible?

Cony, also spelled Coney, any of certain unrelated animals, including two mammals and two fishes. ... The name cony was once applied to the rabbit and is still sometimes used in the fur business to indicate rabbit fur. The cony of the Old World and of the Bible is an unrelated mammal, the hyrax (q.v.). Agelbert NOTE: qv in British. abbreviation for denoting a cross reference - quod vide. Collins English Dictionary.


Where are hyraxes found?

Hyraxes are very adaptable. In East Africa, they are found at sea level and at altitudes of more than 4,000 meters (14,000 feet). Their habitats range from dry savanna to dense rainforest to cold Afro-alpine moorland.

Hyraxes are small animals without tails. They resemble guinea pigs. The animals grow to 28 inches in length and have a maximum weight of 11 pounds. The hyrax’s skin is covered with thick fur and has varied coloration depending on the species. The yellow-spotted rock hyrax’s fur is yellowish brown and has a white patch just above its eyes. The rock hyrax is greyish-brown in color and has no distinct marks on its face.

The hyrax has several physical attributes that differentiate it from rodents and link it to elephants and manatees. The hyrax’s feet have rubber-like moist soles which are crucial in climbing. Hyraxes have three toes on the hind feet and four toes on the front feet. The toes have nails (with the exception of the hind foot’s inner toe which has a claw used for scratching itches) which resemble hoofs unlike the usual long, claw-like nails found in rodents. The dental characteristics of the hyrax are also close to that of elephants with elongated incisors which resemble tusks found in manatees and elephants. These tusk-like teeth are more prominent in male hyraxes than in females.


Proverbs 30:24-28 King James Version (KJV)

24 There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:

25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;



26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;

27 The locusts 🦗 have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;

28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.

Agelbert NOTE: These social scientists have empirically discovered what Paul, the Apostle of Jesus Christ, made clear over two thousand years ago about the importance of equality in human society. ✨

Quote
Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have. For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.

For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened: But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:

As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. -- 2 Corinthians 8:11-15 King James Version (KJV)

Why is the incidence of mental illness in the UK twice that in Germany? Why are Americans three times more likely than the Dutch to develop gambling problems? Why is child well-being so much worse in New Zealand than Japan? As this groundbreaking study demonstrates, the answer to all these hinges on inequality.

InThe Spirit Level Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett put inequality at the centre of public debate by showing conclusively that less-equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across everything from education to life expectancy. The Inner Level now explains how inequality affects us individually, how it alters how we think, feel and behave. It sets out the overwhelming evidence that material inequalities have powerful psychological effects: when the gap between rich and poor increases, so does the tendency to defi ne and value ourselves and others in terms of superiority and inferiority. A deep well of data and analysis is drawn upon to empirically show, for example, that low social status is associated with elevated levels of stress, and how rates of anxiety and depression are intimately related to the inequality which makes that status paramount.

Wilkinson and Pickett describe how these responses to hierarchies evolved, and why the impacts of inequality on us are so severe. In doing so, they challenge the conception that humans are innately competitive and self-interested. They undermine, too, the idea that inequality is the product of 'natural' differences in individual ability.  

This book sheds new light on many of the most urgent problems facing societies today, but it is not just an index of our ills. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity generate much higher levels of well-being, and lays out the path towards them.

By Mark Bendeich DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 24 (Reuters) – The world’s largest wind-power producer, Iberdrola SA, has brushed off Big Oil’s embrace of renewable energy as “more noise” than action. Major oil and gas firms have been venturing into renewable power under pressure from climate-change policy, collectively spending around 1 percent of their 2018 budgets […]

Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets schooled by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Bill Palmer | 4:35 pm EST January 24, 2019

Palmer Report » Analysis

Republican politicians and pundits just keep lining up to dishonestly attack new Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and it just keeps working out poorly for them. The latest member of the GOP to take on AOC in a battle of wits is the eternally witless Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and well, you can already figure out who won and who didn’t.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on Fox News and slammed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s climate change plan, saying “I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority.” This is far from the first time in which Sanders has severely twisted Christianity to fit her distinctly un-Christ-like political view, but rarely has it gone quite this poorly for her.

Ocasio-Cortez promptly fired back on Twitter with three Bible verses that spell out how God would actually want us to deal with climate change and the planet:

Genesis 1: God looked on the world & called it good not once, not twice, but seven times.

Genesis 2: God commands all people to “serve and protect” creation.

Leviticus: God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez then added “You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway.” Not surprisingly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has had nothing to say in response. It’s still not quite clear why so many prominent figures in the the Republican Party and the Trump regime keep taking on the same freshman Congresswoman. But it is clear that they keep losing whenever they try it.

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain. --  Proverbs 30:5-9 King James Version (KJV)


Quote
There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother. There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness. There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.

There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men
. -- Proverbs 30:11-14 King James Version (KJV)

Quote
Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O Lord, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.

O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever. Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name. Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.

Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually. -- Psalm 74:18-23 King James Version (KJV)

Status Report on our Abruptly Changing Climate: 1 of 2 // Jan 18, 2019


Here is an overdue chat on our abruptly changing climate. After a hiatus for chess study and competition and to recharge my internal batteries, I am refreshed and chomping at the bit, like the proverbial Energizer Bunny:)

I join-the-dots on extreme events like Australia’s heat waves (50 C; 122 F), eastern North America and European deep freezes, torrential rains in Europe and California, accelerating ice melt from Greenland and Antarctica releasing methane, and huge insect kills in near-equator rainforests.

Trump's Secret Strategy Behind Government Shutdown


Does Donald Trump have a a secret strategy to the government shutdown? Some are suggesting that Donald Trump, and the Republicans are using the government shutdown as a testing ground to prove their ideas about small government, cut the social safety net and even abolish the FBI? 

Just why is Donald Trump fighting so hard to keep the government closed?
