    Here's an idea. If you want me to "chillax", don't be intentionally rude to me. You went out of your way to hunt down the post from 2 years ago where I said I wasn't going to be involved moving forward because of the progressive nature of the articles being published. Feeling like the articles are less egregious 2 years later, I've re-engaged a bit. But for some reason you feel it's necessary to try and point out that I was lying or faking it or something. And then you continue to harp on it the next time you engage with me, and then double down on the rudeness when I question you on it.
    How do you really expect me to take that?

    I am trying to understand - but I am not an expert in virology.   But from my studies there is a difference between T-Cell immunity and antibodies and we should not think in terms that all that have recovered from SARS-CoV-2 have T-Cell immunity.  It appears that the only way to know for certain if someone has T-Cell immunity is to test for the specific T-Cells that is more complicated than testing for antibodies.   In all the reporting on COVID-19 I have only heard one Dr. (that occasionally reports on Fox News) that even talks about T-Cell immunity.  
    There are some articles on the internet that address specifically T-Cell immunity specific to COVID-19.  But I have not heard any experts in the media or any research that talks about reinfections that specifically addresses T-Cell immunity.  I will be meeting with my doctor this month and I plan to talk to him about my questions.

    CDC website, August 6th 2021, states the following:
    The kicker... after stating there is 'limited evidence' that it offers any protection if you have already had Covid, they then go on to say everyone should still take the vaccine anyways.

    NeedleinA reacted to Fether in Sabbath as a delight... how?   
    Sabbath is a day of rest… but rest is only rest if you need it. If you have been sitting in your couch all day watching TV, there is no need for rest.
    Additionally, I found on my mission that I slept best after says I worked extremely hard.
    I find that the Sabbath only plays it’s role as a day of rest when we have obeyed other aspects of the gospel. If we work hard throughout the week, avoid slothfulness (Doctrine and Covenants 107:99-100), avoid idleness and sleeping longer than needful (Doctrine and Covenants 88:124), are diligent in our role as a provider, parent, nurturer etc, and magnify whatever calling we have, only then is the sabbath a restful day and a delight.
    If we spend our week over indulging in the luxuries of life and neglecting work, the sabbath will become a day of excess rules. A day that seems more difficult than all others.
    The degree of which the sabbath is a delight and a day of rest is directly related to the degree you live gospel principles throughout the week.

    Will someone please explain to me why someone with immunity (t-cell) against the virus needs the "vaccine"?  
    Why does anyone think someone with immunity (t-cell) against the virus is more of a threat to anyone than someone that is fully "vaccinated"?
    We now know that there are individuals that have been "vaccinated" that have been infected by the virus - and can pass the virus on to others - Does anyone know of anyone that has immunity (t-cell) that has been infected and/or has passed the virus on to others?????
    There is a lot said about those currently getting the virus and being hospitalized are those that are unvaccinated - but how many have t-cell immunity against the virus?
    Why can't we recognize those that are immune (t-cell immunity)?  
    There is already indications that booster shots may be needed against  COVID-19 in the future.  The science is that those that have t-cell immunity are immune for life (better than the vaccine) and are more immune against the variant than those with the "vaccine".  And if history is any indication - there is a possibility that those with t-cell immunity may also pass on their immunity to their decedents.  But this will take some time to validate for sure.
    Last question ----- Why do those that say everyone should have the vaccine fail to recognize those that have t-cell immunity?????  Is it because there is more politics than science?  
     
    I have a suggestion - I think it is because it is most difficult to prove that someone does not have t-cell immunity - mostly because of false negative testing.  But I also believe that their medical history is a better source than testing - but HIPPA would never allow forced discloser to medical histories - and I believe that is mostly based in the politics of AIDS.  I believe we have painted ourselves into a vary foolish political corner!!!! - that makes it most difficult to "follow the science".   It is also my understanding that the only way to have t-cell immunity to COVID is to be infected.

    NeedleinA reacted to laronius in Sabbath as a delight... how?   
    I personally never enjoyed an overly sedentary Sabbath. Give me my scripture study time but then let me get going. I actually like having meetings or assignments that get me doing something. To me the rest I enjoy is not thinking about work or anything else of a temporal nature but not necessarily slowing down, just changing focus. So I would say finding a good balance between feeding my soul and engaging in the work is key to making the Sabbath a delight for me.

    NeedleinA reacted to Ironhold in Sabbath as a delight... how?   
    I make it a point to make my Sundays as calm and quiet as possible. 
    I listen to a couple of radio shows I like before church, during which I get my online matters knocked out. 
    I have church, then I go to a particular store to get a particular newspaper. 
    Barring any situations that may arise, once I'm home, I'm home. I find a comfortable spot, turn the radio back on, and just chill. I usually read and otherwise just take it slow to recharge for Monday.

    For understanding I would point you to Hebrews chapter 4.  Here Pall compares the Sabbath day as learning to enter into the L-rd's rest which is living with G-d in the Celestial Kingdom following the resurrection (being in heaven).  In short, keeping the Sabbath is learning to be with G-d the Father in his Kingdom of heaven.  I really think that being with G-d is a delight!
    I would suggest that this is not about do's or don'ts on Sunday but by entering into a covenant with G-d to enter into his "rest" for the Sabbath.  I believe this is a process where we focus on service to G-d and our neighbor rather than our own pleasures, needs ore necessities.  Some may never learn to find delight in sacrifice and service to G-d and our fellow man because they never sacrifice through service to G-d and their neighbor.  If they ever do sacrifice it is because they seek a benefit for themselves. 
    I have a Sabbath covenant with G-d - which includes attending worship services to renew my covenants and partake of the sacrament.   There are things I do to remind me of my Sabbath covenant but I do not consider such things as must do's to keep the Sabbath - nor do I expect anyone else to adopt my methods.  But I do recommend that all adopt methods to remind them of their sacred Sabbath covenants.
    It is my believe that no one will ever find delight in the Sabbath without making and keeping the Sabbath sacred by personal covenant.

    About 8 months ago our home was in $550k range, now see it valued at around $700k.
    Makes me wish we would have had two homes. One to stay in and one we could be selling right now like @Traveler.
    Fact of the matter, even though our house is much higher, no point selling because we would be buying at equally high costs too.
    So... we do nothing and watch the frenzy before us. Homes under the $300k mark sell in about 1 day and with multiple offers.
    We are a Red state.
    Everyone is welcome here, just don't bring your blue state politics with you.
