Serbski, behind the times?  Never! 
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

At Warsaw Technological University (where I study) each course has one humanistic classes and we have philosophy. Tomorrow I have a test and one of the issues are thought of Thomas Aquinas. Should I sue the University of discriminating the Orthodox?
You should thank the University for allowing you the opportunity to be exposed to one of the greatest  Theologians and Philosophers ever to live.   ;D  :D  :)

ACK

I despise Aquinas as a theologian.

He was humongously heretical.
That's funny considering the fact that in the past there EO theologians who thought Aquinas was great.

I'm aware there are some EO theologians who thought Aquinas was great. But that is simply unfortunate, because his heresies are obvious.
I stopped posting here in August 2011 because of stark disagreement with the policies of the administration and moderating team of the forums. If you desire, feel free to PM me, message me on Facebook (link in profile), or email me: cddombrowski@gmail.com

come on people....stop being mood killers...take your Aquinas opinions elsewhere...

I'm trying to see if Serbskie will remain in the times, or will he forever walk away.

I never did well in World of Warcraft.  By the time I made my first footman, someone would attack me with those flying griffin thingies.  This was in 1996.

Thanks. I hope I do too but also hope I fall asleep in the middle of a lesson. It would freak my students out and having confused students is the goal of all good High School teachers.  ;)

Well that was a complete waste of time! People seem to go crazy in the last 5 minutes on Ebay, don't they? This second hand Spinning wheel went for more than the cost of a brand new one in the end! I just ordered one from an online store (which I could have done hours ago and been in bed by now!)

NO! Must keep a clear head for Ebay!

That may be the saddest part of this exchange.  Grab a breath of fresh air, friend - isn't it summer down there?  Enjoy the sun.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Its foggy and raining Father. This is the wettest Summer in eleven years- a blessing after the longest drought in recorded history.

Well that was a complete waste of time! People seem to go crazy in the last 5 minutes on Ebay, don't they? This second hand Spinning wheel went for more than the cost of a brand new one in the end! I just ordered one from an online store (which I could have done hours ago and been in bed by now!)

That is how it always happens.  :P  You think you are getting a great deal and then within the last few minutes the price increases 200%.

The price increased over 500% in this case! Why would you pay more than the price of a new item plus delivery for a second hand item you have to pick up?

come on people....stop being mood killers...take your Aquinas opinions elsewhere...

I'm trying to see if Serbskie will remain in the times, or will he forever walk away.

I'll make you a calendar.  It would look like this:

My cousin miraculously sold a broken mobile phone (cracked and someone disfunctional), and even advertising its bad shape with pictures, expecting to sell for 20 or 30 got over 150 for it.  He and I were shocked!  The last five minutes can really be addicting.

...well, Chalcedonians call it gyros, and non-Chalcedonians call it shwerma.

I don't know the difference!

I never understood eBay.  I knew a guy who purchased law school review books and cassettes for his wife on eBay.

Do they have flea markets down under?
