Re: Figuring Out Religion

Yeah, pretty major hammer. Balance would suggest you also quote verses 1-14. And oh yeah, the next chapter puts it all in context which I always find to be useful information. Arguably, the hammer came down as described. Pick one, Assyrians, Babylonians, Romans. Any would likely do for fulfilling t...

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Following is an interesting discussion of God and why bad things happen. There is a longstanding tradition in Lutheran theology (going back to Luther) of distinguishing between God's proper work (that of loving, caring for and saving humanity) and His alien work (His wrath over and punishment of si...

Re: Kavanaugh

Ladies and gentlemen, we have another recanter. https://amp.usatoday.com/amp/1863210002 Of course she recanted. Now that the white male patriarchy is fully entrenched on the supreme court and the Nazis have complete control over all the branches of government she probably feared for her life. (I'm ...

Re: Kavanaugh

On a slightly related note, Harvey Weinstein has an accuser who was 16 at the time, 16 years ago. https://www.yahoo.com/news/lawsuit-alleges-harvey-weinstein-sexually-assaulted-girl-16-235845622.html Also somewhat related to Kavanaugh, I haven't heard from any liberal (either personally, online or ...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Scary thought of the day.... Given Newton's third law, that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, what will be the effect of the pipe bomb incident on the psyches of those on the far left? None. Their TDS is already stage 4. Did you see Pat Buchanan's article today, comparing th...

Re: The Man in the High Castle

Just finished binge watching the third season last night. Now I'm depressed because I have to wait a whole year for season 4. Having heard it was going to get more into the parallel universe stuff I thought it might get silly but it was quite fascinating. My only complaint is that now I think I'm go...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Sorry to have brought up the subject of abortion. What I was trying to say in my post about Democrats is that for years I voted the way Sophie did, just from the opposite end of the spectrum. It wasn't so much that I favored Republicans but that Democrats disgusted me. Learned my lesson in 2000 when...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

I used to think of the left as being kinder to individuals, while Republicans were cold-hearted corporate shills. The Left recognized that people can have misfortunes e.g. they can get sick or get into accidents, and that the measure of a person is not the extent to which they can avoid these thing...

Re: Universal Basic Income vs Universal Basic Assets

I see that Spartacus wants to give all poor kids a $50k nest egg for a decent start in life https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/10/22/17999558/cory-booker-baby-bonds . Details about who would qualify as poor are sketchy. Sounded like race might be a factor from the article. Probably cheaper...
