I was born Janusry 9, 1979. Is it "dishonest to say I was raised in the 1970's seeing I was 9 days from being born in 1978?

I am being told I was "dishonest" and that I told a "lie" by saying I was raised in the 1970's. If I had been born 9 days earlier, I would have been born in 1978. Would you go so far as to call it a "lie" to say I was raised in the 70's?

observe tv from the 70's going into the early 80's, and you quickly get it that tv was hoakie. Three's Company, The Dukes of Hazzard, HeeHaw, Chips, The Fall Guy, The ATeam, Starsky and Hutch, and Bosom Buddies, No cuss words. And any inuendos were much more subtle on tv. You could imply things, but now they just show the thing happening.

"As an example, here was a piece from my debate.

What on earth are you wittering about? This is a religion forum, so your topic is totally off topic!

Sooner, it's not false, but can be misleading. On the other hand, I've read the exchange that triggered this query, and felt your statement wasn't deliberately misleading, nor was the distinction material to the issues under contention.

Bulproof has some great insights at times, but lately has seemed a bit cranky, waspish and pedantic. I was taken aback by something else he took issue with recently, too.

In this case, I would suggest that the problem is nothing significant about anything you wrote. For my part, I hope Bulproof is well, and that whatever else might be bothering him beyond minor DDO quibbles, resolves soon.

Hope that might help. :)

I wouldn't necessarily say it was dishonest. Not 100% correct, but not necessarily dishonest.

To say you were "raised in the 70's" would commonly mean that the bulk of your childhood took place there. Your's didn't. You probably can't even remember any part of the 70's. Hate to break it to you, but you were an 80's kid.

I was born in late 88. I don't say I was raised in the 80's, I say I was raised in the 90's, because that is where I spent the bulk of my childhood. I can't really remember the 80's so to say I was raised in the 80's is misleading.

Well if you were born then you were born in the 70's.

You were raised for the rest of 1979 in 70's, but 9 days short of a year hardly counts.

The interesting thing about how era's run is that the 70's ran from Jan 1, 1970, to December 31st 1979.

However the 8th decade ran from 1971 to 1980.

so you were raised for another year in the 8th Decade.

The bulk of your being raised however will have happened in the 1980's or the 9th decade.

Fun isn't it, lol.

Your flesh was formed in the womb during the 70's but you were actually born in the mind of God a long time before your flesh was formed.

Of course it is. You know that. When somebody says "I was raised in the........" most of us take that to mean the decade in which they spent the ages of, say, 7 or 8 to their late teens. Say from 7-18 y.o. Thats my take on it.
I was born the same year as you. I tell people I was raised in the 80's and early 90s! Yo nor I didnt know shite from Shinola when the 70's ended. LOL

Your flesh was formed in the womb during the 70's but you were actually born in the mind of God a long time before your flesh was formed.

You must be talking about Jesus. God thought a lot about having sex with a human virgin which was long on His mind before He acted and Jesus was formed in the flesh.
Whereas His angels have been cohabitation with humans from the beginning.

GENESIS 6:1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. 3 And the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. (NKJV)
