    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    Maybe an additional "goalpost" was added, although they were both there together. But the original goalpost is still the same. The accusation was made against her, and it's not debunked by anyone, and everyone is circling the wagons around her to shield her from ever having to be answerable for...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    OK we agree. Trump should be arrested and put on trial for refusing the subpoena to appear before Congress to answer the above and other charges, and sentenced to prison for that crime (and others too who refused to appear). And Pelosi should be subpoenaed to appear and explain why the...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    translation: no claim should ever be investigated, as long as anyone doesn't like the claim (thinks it's "garbage"). By this standard we should have no investigation into climate change, which millions of Americans think is "garbage." Like the Jussie Smollett story, the hate crime in Chicago...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    All radio propagandists are legitimate sources for accusations against those in power, on either side. Hannity was not wrong when he said Delaware's voting restrictions are worse than Georgia's. No one could refute that. Instead they just make excuses why the standards for Georgia need to be...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    You're right. So then, what should happen, instead of what actually has been happening? Trump and many of his cohorts should have been subpoenaed to testify, and refusing to show up they should have been arrested and convicted and imprisoned for this crime. And Pelosi or others who failed to...

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    (reply to #18) 5 sources (Count 'em! -- 5 FIVE sources) for the Jesus Resurrection That someone is offended by repetition is an indication that they are afraid of truth-seeking per se and are running away from the truth, which frequently requires repetition in order to be found. It's perfectly...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    No they don't, not stories about efforts made BEFORE Jan. 6 to get extra security, in anticipation of riots to happen later. The accusation against her is not about any of that. It's about what steps were or were not taken PRIOR to Jan. 6. She made no request for extra security prior to Jan. 6...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    No, the New York Times is not a legitimate source for resolving this. Especially since the article is not available to anyone unless they first subscribe to the NYT. You have to at least cite a source which we're all allowed to read. translation: If it's from a Red source it's "obviously" and...

    Historical Jesus

    How was the historical Jesus important? (as a person in history) What was special about him? Why was he made into a god? Why didn't they make John the Baptist into a god? or James the Just? Both of these were arguably more popular than Jesus, having more followers, in 30 AD. Also the famous...

    Merry Normalization of Lies Day

    Nancy Pelosi is accused of having rejected National Guard protection for the Capitol in the days preceding Jan. 6, when there was anticipation of mob violence likely to happen. Meaning she is partly to blame for what happened, because the lack of adequate security is largely the cause of what...

    A New US People's Party?

    What's the point of a new "Third Party" which only duplicates what has been done by dozens of already-existing "Third Parties"? If we need another "Third Party" it should be one that offers something different than the many already-existing "third parties" competing with each other and...

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    Response to Atrib (#15) Phrases like "laws of nature being broken" is not necessary in describing the Jesus miracle acts. However, there is a clear-cut historical event, which is believed by historians, based on the evidence, and which conflicts with most of the known medical science...

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    Response to Harry Bosch (#14) We have legitimate evidence/sources for the Jesus resurrection. No they're not. There are many facts known from only one source, and they're considered as probable, likely true, unless they are contradicted by another source, in which case they're put into the...

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    It's the same kind of evidence as for most of our known (ancient) history events, 95% of which could not be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. "5th hand"? Whatever metaphor you use to characterize them, our sources for the Jesus resurrection/miracle acts are more numerous and closer to the...

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    translation: It doesn't matter what the evidence shows. The only thing that matters is the dogma that resurrections/miracles cannot ever happen even if the evidence is that they did happen in some case(s).

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    But which probably did not happen. This story is from one source only, making it less credible, plus also it does not harmonize with the other sources we have reporting the Jesus events. If there had been such a rising of several dead bodies, or if this had been reported by many, the other...

    Other resurrections in the Bible

    But it matters what really happened. If your premise, at the outset, is that it doesn't matter what really happened, and all beliefs about miracles or "resurrection" etc. are equally nonsense, regardless of the evidence, then questions like the following are the result: The main reason those...

    Where did the idea of eternal life in Heaven come from?

    Jesus is the only reported ancient miracle-worker for whom there is evidence. I hope I did not already post this response from earlier -- probably not. But if I did, here it is again, with some revision. That's just semantics, playing with the "miracle" word. There were no reported instant...

    US student loans grotesquely high

    No it didn't. There was more investment in the social sciences and humanities and philosophy and religion and art and poetry than there was in the natural sciences. If there was a general decline in all education, that decline was greater in the natural sciences than in the humanities and social...

    Perils of Artificial Intelligence

    paranoia against AI What's the difference between "the originators" and the "programmers"? What are they the originators of if not the programming? What's a real case of something that went bad because of AI? No good examples are given. There's nothing wrong with a computer rejecting a loan...
