Khathu: Heck the NOI does even believe the devil piece

Seventies Soulchild: Yea I know they do. but you know what's said about a half truth. ..

William: If you tell the truth you have to remember what you said- Mark Twain

Seventies Soulchild: The truth of the matter is these special interest groups have been peddling this 'population explosion' ala Charleston Heston since the 1970's in the main stream media via commercials and such. And do I have to break down what and who is meant by 'population explosion'? But back to genealogy... lol
