Samsung Flat Screen TV Reboot Loop

Samsung had once a good quality, but as everything needs to come cheaper and by maximizing their earnings even Samsung has lost a lot of their reputation until now. In the truest sense, the cheapest components, for saving fractions of cents in production, are getting used. During development, predetermined breaking points are already planned so that the device will be defective soon after the end of the guarantee. Such a behavior is getting called planned obsolescence. The Italian and french consumer protection association are already preparing class actions against Samsung for the reason of planned obsolescence.

I think that everybody remembers the scandal about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which exploded. Samsung did not learn from their failures until now. A few days ago a Samsung Galaxy S7 exploded inside a shop in Germany.

In my case the problem gets shown on two TV sets, which are showing exactly the same failure. One is a 46" flat screen bought around 3 years ago and the other one is a little bit younger and smaller.

The problem is simple described. After watching some time TV the TV-set makes a reboot and as soon the boot has finished it goes immediately again into a reboot. In my case is the reboot not caused by a power failure or an overheat problem. It is simple a problem in the firmware, which seems to get used in their base version on all Samsung flat screen TV sets. If you search at Google for Samsung TV reboot loop then you'll get around 1,290,000 results. That shows already that the problem is a very common one. By taking a look at the Samsung page for an update for the firmware of your model, you'll get disappointed, because most of the times you'll only find the version 1 of the firmware software. Samsung is simple too lazy or too greedy to bring up some new firmware versions for the older models. It looks that Samsung is thinking, that their programmers are error free like Gods and for this reason they don't need to fix any failures in their firmware programming.

Exactly for this reason Italy and France are already investigating against Samsung for the reason of "Planned obsolescence". Samsung seems to be so stupid to think that customers, who made already a bad experience with one of their products will buy a new device from them.

So I have written on their website about my problem with the TV-set:

I have with the specified TV the problem, that I'm running into a reboot loop when I'm connecting a HDMI device. I have tested it with different HDMI devices (DVD player and cable modem). Some times the reboot loop starts after hours and some times a few minutes after turning the TV on. At the moment the TV is running without problems using the AV Input.

So I don't think about a problem of the power supply. I'm thinking more about a timing problem of the processor. The mainboard from the TV got changed around 2 years ago for the reason that the remote control did not work.

Maybe you have some technical idea about the failure and how to fix it without trashing the TV and by a new one.

Samsung replied me with the following standard information:

  • Make sure to use a High-Speed HDMI cable using a new HDMI cable (ver.2.0 or up). Secure that the HDMI cable is tightly connected to the HDMI port of the TV and the proper source was also selected, for example, HDMI1, HDMI (ARC).
  • Disconnect and reconnect all cables between the TV and the home theater
  • Make sure all cables are properly inserted
  • Ensure that your cables are not faulty. To verify, try using a different cable
  • Make sure the correct input is selected on the TV
  • Restore the unit to factory default settings:
    1. To factory reset your TV, press the MENU button on the remote
    2. Select Support
    3. Select Self Diagnosis
    4. Select Reset
    5. Enter the PIN (The default PIN is 0000)
    6. Select OK

As I had already all the points except the last one checked before I have sent them the failure description, I have made the factory reset from the TV and which wonder it has been working for the next nine hours. After 9 hours the TV has been running into the same problems like before.

At this time I have unplugged the HDMI cable without unplugging the power cable and the reboot loop stopped immediately. I made again a factory reset on the TV and plugged in the HDMI cable again. The TV has been working fine again.

Exactly this behavior is showing that there is no hardware failure available. It looks like there is a usage counter built in, which is defined to small and produces an overflow. In such a case the failure is a built in feature that you need to trash your device after a given time. Samsung will only make money by selling some unnecessary services and hardware (mainboard), which gets refurbished for the next customer with the same TV set. Why else does not get initialized the storage area, which gets only initialized during a factory reset, during each start of the TV? I had also tried to simple unplug the power cord during a reboot loop and let it unplugged for more than one day. The reboot loop has continued immediately after plugging the power cord on again. So during booting the TV the memory does not get initialized.

I had given them a new chance to bring up some information about the problem by giving them a feedback about the results I had found out:

I'm trying only to reproduce the failure. Especially such a failure seems not to be a simple hardware defect. Maybe Samsung will find the problem in the firmware. For this purpose you should also inform the technical department as it looks that the same failure exists in other models too. You only need to make a search in Google about "Samsung reboot loop" and you'll get enough results. I'm not asking for some money, I would be happy already if the problem gets found and fixed.

According your last email I have made a factory reset at the TV. Plugged in the HDMI cable and the TV has been running fine for 9 hours without any problem. After these 9 hours the failure has been back. The TV rebooted 2 times like in the reboot loop, has been running fine for a few minutes for ending up in the endless reboot loop afterwards.

I unplugged in this situation only the HDMI cable without unplugging the power cord before and the reboot loop stopped. The TV switched itself into the TV mode, but I have no antenna connected as I have here cable TV.

I switched to the AV mode and the reboot loop has been coming back. In this situation I unplugged the AV cable (only the yellow one for the picture transmission has been connected) and have been running a factory reset.

Afterwards I reconnected the HDMI cable and the TV has been running fine again.

I think that your software is writing something back to memory and after a time the memory content has some wrong information and results into the reboot loop. During booting of the system this part of the memory does not get initialized and for this reason the reboot loop is coming up, even when you have unplugged the power cord for more than 1 day (like I have found out during my tests before I have contacted you the first time).

Maybe the problem is coming up with the aging of the used chips too, but for me it looks like a stack overflow (typical programming failure). Don't worry, nobody is perfect and something like that happens to other companies like Microsoft, Apple, etc. too.

If you simple initialize during each boot the part of the persistent memory where you are updating something during the normal use of the TV then the reboot loop will be avoided. A simple reboot can even happen during a power failure. But in any case you should search for the failure, which is the reason for the reboot, in your firmware. It seems that you have the same problem in many models.

On the other site Samsung will run into problems if they are not fixing such problems, because Italy and France are already preparing another law suite against Samsung for the reason of "planned obsolescence". If Samsung is faster in fixing their program errors than these countries are starting their law suites, than Samsung will have no problems and will not destroy their own reputation more than it is already destroyed.

That Samsung has some problems with programming gets shown here on the website too. By following your link in your email response and filling out the form here an error message is coming up - simple take a look at the attached file:

Error message: contactus.samsung.com: Page unauthenticated calls.

As the device is already out of warranty, they tried to send a technician to me on my costs for verifying the error. It is cheaper in such a case to trash the device and buy another one from another vendor, who is providing a better quality. The technician will not sit in front of the TV for hours for free of charge.

If you buy today some consumer electronics, then you should not buy the newest model. Search for an older model and verify the problems published online before you decide to buy the device.

 

Misinterpretation - Freedom of Religion: "O Allah, grant victory, dignity and empowerment to our brothers Mujahideen (Jihadists) ..."

Every religion/people think that their religion is superior. Why can't we respect our differences and be respectful? Is religion the only thing what the people have learned in some parts of the world? Is it in this case religion not a brainwashing? If you read in the international news additional about the prayer from the Imam of the Great Mosque in Mecca, what is beginning with "O Allah, grant victory, dignity and empowerment to our brothers Mujahideen (Jihadists) ...", then you know as a normal person the intentions of the followers from this Imam with the name Abdurrahman ibn Abdulaziz as-Sudais.

Recently I got an invitation to show which reputation the Islam has for the remaining part of the world. The nature of the people is that bad news keeping longer in memory than good ones. The Islam is a totalitarian system and does not really know the word freedom. Examples for the totalitarian system can get found in masses by browsing the news sites where the leaders of the Islam are getting cited. In the same way you’ll find negative news in masses about the crime coming in the name of Allah to the countries of the "non believers".

As everybody participating in the social networks is speaking English and can find understandable news in the Internet and my mother tongue is German, I have decided to bring up an actual case from the German mainstream news sites. Mainstream news sites are the opinion makers of the crowd. The result has been the an article, which I have distributed with the following description and link at the social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter):

Is the sentence that the Islam is a peaceful religion only a bad joke?

Some claim that Islam is a religion of peace, and the jihadists are just wacky fringe groups. Extremists precisely. This especially in the West cherished by non-Muslims was wishful thinking now, corrected by Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, the imam and Quran reciter from the "Sacred Mosque" of Mecca. The Salafist and Wahabit Imam Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais applies Sunni Muslims as one of the most reliable and popular interpreters of the Koran.
http://myopinion.wwpa.com/post/is-the-sentence-that-the-islam-is-a-peaceful-religion-only-a-bad-joke

The basis for the report of the main stream news sites is a prayer from the Saudi Imam Abdurrahman ibn Abdulaziz as-Sudais of Mecca's Grand Mosque, which is a war declaration from Saudi Arabia against the rest of the world and got live distributed from the Egyptian TV station:

The good news are coming from an Egyptian TV commentator who roasted the Wahhabi Imam of Mecca's Grand Mosque, Abdurrahman ibn Abdulaziz as-Sudais. As bad news are riding on a jet plane while good news are taking a snail are got this good news, which are showing that not all Muslims are from the same kind, not published in the main stream media. The business from the media site is done with their headlines. Bad news are bringing more readers than good ones. Here is the video of the Egyptian TV commentator:

Here is a transcript from the English sub-titles:

TV Commentator: What does he say in his prayer?

Prayer: O Allah, grant victory, dignity and empowerment to our brothers Mujahideen (Jihadists) in Yemen, in Sham (Syria) and Iraq and everywhere.
O Lords of the Worlds grant them victory over the godless Rafidah (Shia Muslims), grant them victory over the treacherous Jews and over the spiteful Christians and over the untrusted hypocrites.
Oh Allah, grant them victory, help and strength.

TV Commentator: Rafidah (Shia Muslims), Jews, Christians?!!!
And then you wonder when a Mosque is exploded in Najran?!
A Shia’s mosque in Saudi Arabia?!
Listen!
All the people around the world are their enemies!
All the people are enemies to Salafis!
They are the only saved group!
They’re the only true Muslims, The Wahhabis and Salafis
All the other people are enemies and should be defeated
Rafidah (Shia Muslims), Jews and Christians
We will kill them all. We will fight them all
They’re talking about Muslims and about Jews and Christians in general
Not even the American coalition in which they are part of
No. No.
And then we ask ourselves how Daesh (ISIS) was created. Are you ridiculing us?
Then you say "we will fight terrorism!"
Fighting terrorism?! Are you ridiculous?
You are the source of terrorism. You are the terrorism itself.
Let’s have a break

Here are some links from news sites with a good reputation which have reported about this case in the German speaking countries (Austria, Germany and Switzerland):

The same way as the Muslims do not differ between the subcategories of other religions from the World nobody else will differ between the subcategories of the Islam. Main stream news sites and TV stations are the opinion makers and a war declaration to the rest of the world, which gets done from the Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca is nothing what can get ignored. Such leaders are promoting the image from the Islam to the rest of the world. In civilized countries such hate preachers would end up in jail and would not find some audition any more. Freedom is one of the base values in the Western World. There is also a Freedom of Religion included, but each freedom ends there where the freedom from others will get limited or influenced. Everybody has his right of freedom and not only some.

Abdul Rahman Al-SudaisSuch hate preachers and wannabe warlords like the Imam from the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, are the reputation of the Islam. They like to distribute their totalitarian system all over the world and are stupid enough to think that they can do everything without punishment. Does anyone think that other countries will use millions of dollars everyday for making a firework by throwing their bombs against the Daesh (ISIS) as the Muslims are not able by themselves to stop the terrorists and such preachers? Don't forget the Islamic terror started 1983, more than 33 years ago and not with the Syrian conflict. At WikiPedia you'll find an incomplete list from the Islamic terror attacks. That list and the speeches and hate-prayers from the leading Imams are making the reputation of the Islam in the mainstream media of the world. Such news are remembering others about their own dark history. Each child of the Western World is learning in the school about the history and all children of the Western World have to visit the schools for at least 8 years. This rule is forced by law.

If we take a look at the Muslim Population of the world from the year 2014, then we see that a minority likes to rule the world. The Muslims are even not able to make peace under each other, how they will be able to rule the world?

As we have seen from the comments from the of the Egypt TV station seems it come to the same situation like the world has been before World War II as Hitler has declared his war against the Jews. I think everybody knows how the story has ended. You need only compare the prayer from Abdurrahman ibn Abdulaziz as-Sudais with the ideology from Hitler and you'll not find any difference.

Under such circumstances I expected a real shit storm for my article in the social networks. Only in the LinkedIn group Better Future4Earthlings a discussion about the topic has started and got a lot of comments.

The first comment made Zaheer Mirza, the moderator of the group Better Future4Earthlings. I fully agree with the following comments he wrote:

Zaheer MirzaHi Rudolf Faix ... thank you for posting this ... I urge calm discussion in this ... those who agree give reasons rather than be swayed by emotions ... and those that disagree please give reasons based on Quran and Hadith (life of prophet Muhammad PBUH) ... this is not easy ... but essential dialogue if we are to reduce/eliminate divides.


What people believe in is their personal matter ... we should only talk about how it impacts us ... we are not here to discuss merits of theologies and doctrines ... but rather the actions of others that are making our lives unbearable and then understanding the root causes of the behaviour.

An comment which describes situation in the best way has been coming from Pam Stofle:

Pam StofleIt's a difficult conversation. Period. I was raised to believe the holy book of Islam says it is ok to kill infidel. Without anyone to ask, because separation was the way in my neighborhood. It just stuck. Bring in media and it's easy to believe. Dating back for me to fear of leaders in Iran 70s and Libya, we had evidence to perpetuate the belief.
It wasn't until I made a pen pal , OBVIOUSLY before the internet, that I realized the news is not fact. My little friend was from a tiny island Qatar. She asked me the most amazing questions. Do all of you wear cone heads then burn black face people on fire? Do all of you wear mini skirt and show your cleavage to men? Do all of you kill babies? Why to Christ followers hate and kill bombing everyone everywhere? Why does America favor one small place and take land to give to Jews.? Do all Americans kill each other and dance naked at musical events? Why do Americans shoot their police. Why do the divide by white and everyone else?
You get the point
I was in 6th grade.
Shocked
Sad and certain there was no hope for world peace. As media became more powerful, I questioned everything.
I protested every war, and also became agnostic for decades.
I am back with Christianity, only because I saw the possibilities for mutual aid when Islam and Christian helped after earthquakes or floods.
I'm sorry for us all.
My answer is simple, just keep being you. The light in you shines through. Yes your head coverings may scare us here, but also are you afraid our smutty dressed girls will influence your daughter's. We must find a way to let our children heal. Know, read watch the truth. Just a grandma remembering my little friend
Blessings
Humbly
Pam

The comment from Pam is correct describing the situation from people, who don't know how everything started - a war which started 33 years ago with terror attacks from a few idiots, who have been thinking that they can rule the world by killing innocent people. Isn't it time to stop this war for the favor of the next generation? Are such power hungry Imams like Abdurrahman ibn Abdulaziz as-Sudais, whos like to continue a war, which they cannot win, only for killing their own boredom, so important for their followers that they are not able to use their own brain? Are all the Muslims already brainwashed that they even not try to stop their dirty henchmen? After 33 years of terrorism is there no other way available than to put all these terrorists and their leaders into jail. That is the only reason for the alliance fighting against terrorism. If you take away this reason then the alliance has no reason to continue their bombings, which hits innocent people too. There is no way to make some capital out of it. Years ago I have been reading sometimes that the bad US alliance are only fighting for the available oil in the Arabian countries. The problem is only where shall get the oil used? The leading car manufacturers are all already promoting electric driven vehicles. It has been only a wishful thinking from uneducated people that the reason for the war is oil.

A very good comment, which explained how people can coexists with each other has been coming from Dave Aubin:

Thank you for the opportunity to weigh in. I am new to this, before i only listened to what was available. I will admit that it has been a challenge to understand. I have asked and have recieved some insight from friends on this site that are helping me. To understand i found that i had to remove all preconceived thought and start over. Here is what i found to date.
That we are all just human beings. We all have basic needs to live. Human beings who have been abused and/or marginalized will feel and react in a simular way. Here we have many Religions, too many to count, but each retreats to their own group and basically operate and live together but yet isolate themselves as they believe only they know the real truth. I think i do not care that they behave this way as long as they are not harming anyone else. Should they choose to fight among themselves, so be it. I will just watch as i have no interest. My interest is only that all people are the same and i do not condone...


Mistreatment of anyone. Any animal will fight if cornered and feel threatened. I do not expect any less from Human.
The question for me is that at what point did we begin to seperate and believe that we were above nature or could control nature. To understand our mental limits. To move forward we must look in the mirror and ask ourselves some very serious questions. If we were created in her or their image than we must work to prove that we are worthy. To date we have failed. And that is the ultimate challenge. She is not going to help us. She expects us to use the gift she gave us to rise above the primitive. To date we have proved that we have the power to destroy ourselves. Hardly a step in the right direction.

Another comment is showing that some people are thinking that they can make someone else guilty for the fails from their own rows. Some people are searching the failures from others instead from taking a look into the mirror and start by themselves:

Zaheer MirzaDear Rudolf Faix ... why are there refugees in the first place? Could Germany, other European countries or US done something to stop this from happening? Were some of these governments partly responsible to create this situation?

We need to stop addressing symptoms ... we need to go to root causes. What roles did various governments play to stop people becoming homeless?

The refugees are victims from a war started from Islamic terrorists against the rest of the world. It is humanity for taking care for these people. Asking for the root causes is nothing else than a joke. The Islamic terror started during the early 80ths and continues until now - 33 years. It is a problem of the Islamic world to stop these terrorists who are killing in the name of Allah.

Zaheer MirzaThese refugees were living in environments very different to what they have found themselves in post migrating to Europe. It does not take a scientist to conclude that you can't expect very controlled people to find complete freedom and have no negative consequences.

In the above comment gets even confirmed that the Islam religion is a totalitarian system without any freedom and controlled from the religion. Sure that people who are relocating from such a system have problems to find their own way in a free world.

Zaheer MirzaThis is similar to another simple reality that so many seem unable to comprehend - you can't eliminate terrorism by war. We all have seen the picture of the child who was dragged from the rubble - what will he become?

The terrorists have started with their attacks the war against the Western World. Like you see in the prayer from Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais supported from the highest Imams. That shows why the Muslims are not acting against the terrorists, who are killing in the name of Islam. Shall the Western World wait until they are getting slaughtered? Why did you not use it if you know a better method stopping the terrorists? As you don't have any working method found during the last 33 years why others shall wait in fighting against the terrorists? Don't forget that there is a way to reduce the terror coming from one region. The end of the second world war has shown it. The result will be not only one crying child. A lot of innocent people would lose their life and the area will be a desert for thousands of years.

Any comments on comments made by Dr. Mohammad Omar Farooq? He made a lot of effort to answer the original question.

Dr. Mohammad Omar has completely failed the topic. Here is the discussion about how to make a better world for all and not about understanding the Islam. Deeds have more weights than words and everybody is free in his own decisions and beliefs. Nobody will ask if the intentions are sincere if someone kills himself with a bomb in the middle of a crowd by yelling "Allahu akbar". The result is still the same. Whom do you like to explain the Islam in this case?

Some others like Nazim Ali misunderstood the topic of the posting and of the group completely wrong:

Nazim Alithough I usually refrain myself the posts and commenting in this group but as Zaheer Mirza has named me so its my responsibility to respond about this .. first of all I would like to as Mr. Rudolf Faix about a few words he used... wahabbism..? what exactly wahabbism means about and how it was originated..? how wahabbism is associated with the roots of ‘house of saud' ..? what the term jihadi, jihad means in comprehensive way..? what is the context of particular phrase in which the word used by imam in a prayer during such communal gathering..?
please answer me these few questions and then I will start explaining it...


well after reading a blurry and staggering response from the person claiming that imam invoked jihadist and prayer for them.... I m done.... because you are also inspired by the similar problem of relying in media though urging others to deny that.... next time before raising a question please take a thorough look on the things you going to post...

The group is named Better Future4Earthlings and not discussion about the exact meanings of some words. It does not matter what I'm understanding about some words. Important is what the crowd is understanding by the named words when they are reading them in the international press. I wish Nizam Ali good luck by explaining some words to the masses while the terrorists are making his explanations to a lie. With neglecting the news from other countries and other opinions nobody can win something. Such comments got expected from narrow minded people. Simple to summarize: "I simple not believe it and for this reason it cannot be".

Dr. Mohammad Omar FarooqA little bit better has been the comment from Dr. Mohammad Omar Farooq, but still far away from the real topic. He tried to convince me about the Islam religion. Sorry, but the crowd has a negative view about the Islam, because the actions from the terrorists, who are killing in the name of the Islam are speaking louder than any words. Victims from the Islamic terrorist and their family members are not interested if the terrorist has been a true Islamist or a fake one. That does not change something for them. The result is still the same. These actions are the problems and not the real teaching of Mohammed. Whom do you think you can convince that the Islam is a peaceful religion if your leaders are praying for power for the Jihadists for killing others? Do you think that the crowd in the Western World is the same way uneducated like in the countries of the Islamic world?

One comment from Dr. Mohammad Omar Farooq is for me very strange:

Salam, Mr. Faix. If the Saudi Grand Mufti made such a statement, it is something to be deeply concerned. However, before we jump to conclusions, I opened the link and visited the site. Quite interestingly, the "About" button is disabled. Even more interesting is the fact I could not identify a single such report from any of the mainstream media. If it was said, it would be a big news not to be picked up by others. For the credibility of this report, it would be helpful if alternate sources from mainstream media is provided. Thanks and warm regards.

My article has no links inside and my website does not have an About link. My website has a disclaimer box and a link to the full disclaimer including my contact details. As he even did not mention which link he has followed I'm not able to know about which About button he is writing. At this time got provided from only one link to a WikiPedia article and one link to the Austrian newspaper kronen.at, an old newspaper company with a good reputation. As the content from krone.at is written in German, there cannot get an About-Link found. Other links to my sources got provided at the end of the discussion. So I really don't know which website the guy is meaning.

Even some very narrow minded people have left their comments to the posting. One from these people who are believing something only for the reason it is written somewhere is Robert San Miguel / Vasquez. This guy has even not been reading the full article and even don't know the name of the group. He think that he needs only to write some statements and everybody will believe and agree with him. The professional golfer Robert San Miguel / Vasquez is even contradicting himself in his statements. He is simple starting with the words "This is nonsense" without the knowledge what is really written in the article. He like to compensate his missing knowledge with big words:

Robert San Miguel / VasquezThis is nonsense ! Islam isn't the culprit. The true catalyst to all world conflicts are the fake lying Ashkenazi Jews. The real imposters. They love to cause " social disorder ".


These f kers are the filthiest of all in humanity.

http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/expelled.htm

Why ? Because they love to cause " social disorder " then they get the boot ... But now with them stealing / occupying a state they are centralized to cause havoc across the Middle East like a wolf in sheep clothing. Isis is Israel ... Israel is Isis.


The world is blind or easily mislead by pure propaganda .... The Hebrew Jews left dark skinned from Israel and now returned " white " ! Really world wake up ! Speak up ! Stop this nonsense of " white washing " history.


We have more than enough American wealth to have them removed its their venom of fangs are biting into all other countries ! They are vile... the children of Satan " their father is the King of lies and deceit.


The Jews declared war on Germany ! Not Germany declaring war ! They lived in Germany and wanted to conquer! Hitler saw it growing up so yes it was his personal mission to rid those vile people off the earth ! And skin color is the racism all humanity is taught daily. It makes a huge difference! It's called being an impersonator to deceive the world with their bs " emotional ideology " of nonsense main stream media propaganda.


John 8:44

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

And the truth isn't hate ..its those that hate the truth that are in denial


The end of humanity is in Revelations and guess who is the culprit causing " social disorder "

Revelation 2:9
I know your afflictions and your poverty--yet you are rich! I know about the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Revelation 3:9
I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars--I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.

Even in the Quran they are the evil ones ! Sorry it's in all the holy books of the vile ones in humanity the great imposters of lies and deceit.


Rudolf Faix bro I didn't kill Jesus or any of the holy prophets ..... But I can tell you who did and show you through the Torah Old and New Testament or even the Quran.

Ponder ??

Jesus = Muslims love and recognized Jesus as…


The truth isn't an insult brother ! I love God ! God knows what's in my heart I refuse to conform what others deem correct in society. God lives through me so I will always do my best in speaking and seeking the truth.


Rudolf Faix the holy books are not a lie but they do tell of the " great liars in humanity "


99 percent of Islam is super peaceful and that other 1 percent that are bad are driven by those that cause the social disorder. The world the UN has displaced thousands and thousands of people from the regions of the Middle East so yes cultures will clash but it's all premeditated pre-orchestrated by those occupying Israel !


Religions are man made up first of all. That's the issue for those practicing organized religions. Islam and Christianity are not religions ! ..it's a way of life not what the main stream media ( idiot box / tv ) feeds the masses to indoctrinate.


Rudolf Faix who caused the displacement of those Muslims in Europe ? Of course there will be huge cultures clashed they knew that when they caused the displacements !


I lived for over 10 years of my life serving my country over in the Middle East and when I say I lived .. I adapted to their culture I walked amongst them and even pray with them. Do not believe what you read or see fed through main stream media

As I have asked him: "Robert San Miguel / Vasquez, which Islamic war do you mean with replacement of the Muslim from Europe? Between 1423 and 1878 had happened 10 unsuccessful wars initiated from the peaceful Muslims against Europe. Sorry that Europe did not welcome them." I got the following reply from the deadbeat:

Rudolf Faix heading to play golf I'll catch up with you later. Have a blessed day 🙏🏻

I did not hear something again from the fake profile from Robert San Miguel / Vasquez - the professional golfer who likes to be from the US. LOL

Only the Greek translation from the Bible made Mary to a "Virgin"

Holy ScripturesThis article shows only that each translation is an interpretation and mirrors the opinion from the translator. Such translation failures can get found in each translation. As older the original text is and as more translation generations got done during the time as more of this interpretation failures are getting found in the last version. Don't forget that during the old time only the mighty ones have been able to read and write. These mighty ones have influenced the content of the interpretation into their own favor too. For this reason only stupid ones are believing into some written text without using their own brain.

There is a legend, a richly decorated narrative. And it goes like this: During the first half of the 3rd century BC asked the Egyptian king Ptolemy II Philadelphus the high priest Eleazar from Jerusalem to make a Greek translation of the Hebrew Code (Torah) for the famous Alexandrian library; 72 Jewish savants, six out of the twelve tribes of Israel, a "divine number", are on their way and transferred at the island of Pharao during a time period of 72 days the five books of Moses (Pentateuch) into Greek; It gradually formed the largest translation work of antiquity, the "Septuagint" (literally: the one of the Seventy).

A fantastic story, recorded in the so-called Aristeas letter, but nothing else than just a legend - at least for the used time frame of 72 days.

Legends, as we know, have a long life. The mythic narrative is picked up by the Jewish historian of Josephus Flavius, who died around the year 100 AD. And it expands the philosopher Philo of Alexandria (died in 50 AD): all 72 scholars were strictly apart from their peers and come to an identical conclusion independently of each other.

In reality, showing the biblical research, the giant project is (abbreviated as Roman numerals LXX) naturally grown slowly, it could even not get completed in the second century BC. However, since belong to it already the other books of the Hebrew Bible (Prophets, wisdom literature, etc.), but on individual scriptures the work continued until the time of the New Testament – for example the Psalms.

Don't forget that the Old Testament contains the basics from where got the New Testament and the Quran developed. Already this source contains a lot of interpretation failures and you can be sure a lot of fake stories added by the mighty ones. So don't tell me that you are believing the only available truth. It shows only that you are not open minded, you are repeating only the content you have learned and you are unable to use your own brain.

Mythical origin also the biblical claims that Jesus was begotten of the Holy Spirit - and Maria has been a Virgin at his birth. In the Ancient Orient and in Greece it was tradition that heroes and rulers had gods as fathers in a way. The Evangelist Matthew sees through the virgin birth also fulfilled a prophecy of the Prophet Isaiah that he already understands in a certain way: In the Hebrew original, the speech is only of a "young woman" (the Hebrew word "Almah" describes only the age and not if the woman is single or already married, a virgin got called in Hebrew "betulah"), only the Greek translation of the Hebrew text made it a "Virgin". And so Matthew understood the text.

As Luke writes Matthew that Jesus got born in Bethlehem - unlike the Evangelists Mark and John, who did do not report the birth. He also tells of people and events that for no nativity play are hardly imaginable: the wise men from the East, the Massacre of the Innocents and the escape of Jesus family to Egypt. But probably has nothing to do with it historical reality.

No historical source attests that Herodes the great, who then ruled as King of Rome grace over Israel, ever told a child murder Herod. "The point is to show the danger to the newborn Jesus similar to Moses in the Old Testament, it’s modeled after Matthew draws", explains Jens Schröter, a theologian of the Humboldt-University of Berlin. Also the escape to Egypt should be an invention of the evangelists. Probably Matthew wanted to meet a further prophecy from the Old Testament.

The fact that the birth of a great man - Jesus - raises a star is another mythical motif of the Orient. The wise, who allegedly followed his light toward Bethlehem, it probably also not given, but they fulfilled according Schröter in Matthew an important function: "You should show that Jesus' birth was important for all people, not only for the Jews ".

Jesus is the Messiah prophesied by the ancient Jewish scriptures - Luke and especially Matthew wanted to represent that already in the Christian way at the beginning of their Gospels. And so they had to make the historical circumstances in a particular light. Herein they did not differ from their contemporaries, which is why it would be wrong to measure the evangelists on the scale of modern historiography. Apart from it was in antiquity, accessing mythical elements. "In the stories about Jesus birth had the legendary motifs that task, to make it clear that a very special person had come to the world", said Schröter.

Believe that what is in your comfort and into what you can trust. Don't accept anything word by word only for the reason that it is written somewhere. You will not really find the truth - you'll find only different opinions. Take the chance and build up your own opinion by using your own brain instead of stupidly following the crowd.

 

European Union: Posting of links could be subject to a charge

Here gets shown how inflexible and hostile to innovation the big magazine publishers of the European Union are. Instead of watching the signs of the time and adapting their own business model the German publishers are trying to continue their ride on a dead horse.

These stupid magazine publishers are thinking that they are mighty enough and can force others to pay for linking to their content by using short text snippets from their content. That shows only that these magazine publishers are so dumb and resident against learning that they don’t understand the functions of the header tags <title> and <description>. As soon as you are looking at one of these German site from these magazine publishers you'll find out the reason why they are acting this way. Their full content of their journalistic work fits normally already into description. The text length of the description tag is not limited, but Google takes normally a maximum of around 150 characters for describing your link in their search results. As they journalists from the German magazines are lazy, their content is nothing else than a pic with 2 or 3 sentences under it. How can get made a short description for such a poor content? Their print media is not better, it contains big page filling pictures with not more than 2 - 3 sentences description. As I have seen it the first time, I have been thinking that the German people, who are buying such a newspaper can only be illiterates. If you are searching for real journalistic content then you have to visit the free websites from the big TV stations like ARD and ZDF.

Instead of searching the failures for their losses got these morons of magazine and news publishers the idea that search engines and the social networks have to pay for listing their sites together with the short text snippets. With other words of being happy about a free of charge promotion others shall even pay for making promotion for them. I think these cretins are overestimating themselves.

European Union Commissar Günther OettingerThese self-proclaimed opinion found support for EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger. And now the copyright law shall get renewed and should become EU law. Actually, only Internet companies like Google should be asked to pay, but also private individuals would be currently affected.

The European Commission has published the official proposal for the planned reform of the copyright law on Wednesday (1-2016-593-EN-F1-1.PDF (359.78 kb)). The contents of the 33 pages of long document is somewhat similar to a working paper gel files in the run-up to proposals. Striking: While specific rules on controversial topics such as Geoblocking, or freedom of panorama, it focuses in particular on an extension of the controversial Intellectual property right of the European Union. This law stipulates that Internet companies such as Google and Facebook would have to pay for a link preview, for example, in a Facebook posting or for an excerpt in Google News.

Such laws already exist in Germany and Spain, but these did not bring the hoped-for effect so far. The media companies argue U.S. platforms such as Google or Facebook would benefit from the link previews, so called "snippets". They especially complain Google and co. would earn money with third party content, not cut them but on the advertising revenue. In the future, for a period of at least 20 years on news articles shall apply. Google, Facebook or an other Internet group linked in this period on the item and displays a preview (for example, with title, image and teaser), would have to pay for it.

The media giants hope so that the losses from traditional ad business can get replaced. The EU Commission expects a ten per cent increase for the Media Industry. This is a calculation that seems very doubtful in view of the negative example of Germany. The collecting organization called VG Media could collect since her introduction € 714.540 of the performance rights in Germany, but not a single euro of which was distributed to media companies. Instead, the revenue were used for legal proceedings, carried out violations of the copyright. As costs with 3.3 million euro increase over the revenue, publishers had to even step in and pay – the copyright became thus a negative business.

The proposal is attacked from multiple sides. The governing body of the Austrian Internet providers (ISPA) called the law: "Start to throwback". ISPA Secretary-General Maximilian Schubert, who is also Vice President of EuroISPA, shows angry on copyright infringement in particular about the copyright, the missing unification of the freedom of panorama, as well as the now mandatory review by the hosting provider.

Julia Reda, MEP of the Pirate Party, described the design already in advance as "beyond of good and evil" and called #SaveTheLink under the Hashtag for the resistance. The criticism joined several EU members, including Marietje Schaake, Brando Benifei, and Daniel Dalton. The President of the EU Commission Jean-Claude Juncker stressed in his speech that journalists must get paid, "regardless of where they work and whether it offline, from the copier or linked". Thus copying of printed works he equates the linking of articles, be compensated for the authors and publishers about collecting societies.

"There is a danger that search engines remove journalistic texts from their search completely. The Web would poorer," warns the managing director of IT industry association Bitkom, Bernhard Rohleder. Among especially smaller publishers would suffer because their offers are not to be found and the user instead accessed only on the news pages of the well-known publishers.

Digital Commissioner Günther Oettinger (CDU) don't want that search engines or other Web pages to display even shortest article extracts in the form of "Snippets", when they refer to journalistic texts. Also, even the copy could fall under the new rights. This would be the case when search engines are indexing articles. That case shows that Günther Oettinger does even not know the function of robots.txt. Such a guy likes to be the Digital Commisioner?

Feiler, expects the European Parliament several amendments with clearer definitions, but even sharp criticism on the intellectual property right. "The Intellectual property protection right has already shown what's it can - not very much", said Feiler. "This is a classic case of 'policy laundering': something that did not work at a national level, will be tried on another level again." Feiler compares the approach of the media conglomerates that the music and film industry, who defended in the past decade yet fierce DRM measures. "The reaction is understandable, but thanks to the digitization, it needs new business models."

The initiative, European digital rights (EDRi) complained that the proposal "not worse might have". It was "Poison" for the freedom of expression and creativity. The Commission had ignored all the facts and wants to avoid a genuine reform at any cost.

The new rules could lead to a deal between Google and the corporate media as politico notes. So Google in the United States have presented already 2014 a micropayment system with "Contributor", which could serve as an additional source of income in Europe. The user paid while a self-selected monthly amount between 1.99 and $ 14.99 on Google. If the user visited Web sites that participate in the "contributor" program, all advertising is hidden. At the end of the month, the subscription fee is divided among the visited Web sites. The system is similar to that of Peter Sunde of developed system called Flattr and is currently being tested, among other things by the satirical Web site "The Onion" and the tech blog "Mashable".

How intelligent the EU comedians (politicians) are, gets shown in the draft from the intellectual property right. Give them a lesson and remove all links from your sites and watch them crying until they are coming up with an paid offer (per click) for linking to their sites.

Everybody knows that politicians are useless for everything. They know everything from nothing. They can speak hours without saying something. Politicians are only actors which can get replaced at any time. The real content of the politics gets done in the background. Politicians, who are useless and dangerous at the national level, are getting sent to the European Union.
