Re: Figuring Out Religion

Well now, that is certainly an 8th commandment (put the best construction on things, per Luther) endorsement. Perhaps if you read Montgomery's bio you might, just might, come to understand that his writing is not at the 6th grade level. Thus the comment about being willing to open your mind. I cann...

You might want to do some reading of JWM, but only if you are willing to open your mind.

Omicron is the Y2K of Covid.
I think we need to start distinguishing between Covid and COVID, the former being the real disease and the latter being, well, those who understand what I'm saying know very well what I'm talking about.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I was just reading on FoxNews that after discovering one incident of Omicron only a few days ago there are now cases being reported in many states which they go on to list one by one. If you added all the cases up you could probably come up with a headline something like "Omicron variant cases incre...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

A.

How do you deal with the fact there is no real evidence...

Re: Arbery case

What Scott Adams was saying about the Rittenhouse trial had nothing to do with his own opinion about his guilt or innocence. His comments came out when the jury was taking a lot more time deliberating than people expected even though there was pretty clear video proof of self-defense. I don't know ...

Semantics of certainty are probably worth avoiding. Touche. Well, I did call those men "complete idiots" so I guess we're both guilty of that. I'm sticking with my certainty on that however.

Going to facts here's the bottom line: Ivermetcin studies range anywhere from it may work to it doesn't work. The jury is still out.

Re: Would you wear a mask?

Way too complicated for me. Kind of reminds me of a Jesuit who, in furtherance of his search for a way around the prohibition against masturbation, announced (quite seriously) to his class that abusing oneself "inadvertently" doesn't count. One of the early church fathers, someone named Origen, act...

It's the flagrant narcissism that pushes my buttons, not just on mask wearing, it's more on people choosing on their own to not follow As a Christian, don't you have any problem passing judgment on other people as "flagrant narcissiists"?

Re: The Inflation Spike Probably Won't Last

The wars in Afganistan and Vietnam also lasted a lot longer than they were predicting. I'd say the war against inflation could last as long except that I think there is no war against inflation. The only thing it has in common with those wars is that it is deliberate government policy, possibly run ...

Mark, you might also consider a ferratin test, at least every once in a while. Hemochromatosis can sneak up on you. I always get the feeling that these tests are basically about mining your blood for drugs to sell. I've never heard of ferratin or hemochromatosis but something tells me the drugs mig...
