Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

Infection rates are exploding, and it's not just because we're testing more. In Dade County Florida they're seeing 30%+ of their tests come back positive. Numbers are going up because in some places people stopped trying to contain the virus, and now more people are getting sick. Death rates aren't ...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

But, if herd immunity turns out to be unattainable, then the future vaccine they’re going to push on us, will be useless. Or the vaccine would either require a booster or two to be fully effective, or be an annual shot like we have now for the flu. In that instance we'd have good years, where the v...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

This is fairly terrible news. Interpretation The majority of the Spanish population is seronegative to SARS-CoV-2 infection, even in hotspot areas. Most PCR-confirmed cases have detectable antibodies, but a substantial proportion of people with symptoms compatible with COVID-19 did not have a PCR t...

Re: So Hortense sent me a PM.

you are a better man than I am Perhaps. More likely I'm just in a better place. We all have our struggles. You're probably feeling like a jackass right now, but don't wallow in it. You owned your mistake. I accepted your apology. Now it's time to move on. Find one thing that you can do today, right...

Re: So Hortense sent me a PM.

I promise I wont. I got unbelievably drunk last night as a poor way to cope with stress, copied and pasted most of that from a different website, and regret it now. I have a lot of problems. I should have just asked for an admin deletion before I let it get this far. I have no intention of coming b...

So Hortense sent me a PM.

And this is it: I was actually amused by you when you first joined. That's over now. I'm going to start start continuously trying to get you fired from whatever pathetic, degrading, minimum-wage jobs you can manage to find after the PTA kicks you to the curb. You'd better get used to mindless, under...

Re: Anybody read Believe Me?

And so we're wasting time on opposing what God says is a terrible thing - the unnecessary taking of a human life???!!! Ed, that's your atheism and purely secular / political beliefs informing you of this. You should read that article I linked. Anyway, what I'm actually doing is (very) roughly parap...

Re: Anybody read Believe Me?

When you attack the belief that life is sacred, that is an attack on a Christian's belief. When an evangelical Christian supports the death penalty is that an attack on Christian beliefs? And what about policy decisions that lead to unnecessary death, like opposition to universal healthcare or the ...

Re: Anybody read Believe Me?

I said BELIEFS, why are you referring to rights ?? I guess I need an example. Is my atheism an attack on your religious beliefs, or is it just how I see the world? How about my support for an impermeable wall between Church and State, which means there can never again be school led prayer? Or my be...

Re: Anybody read Believe Me?

Christians I know realize that there are Christians with all manner of political beliefs. But we CAN call out certain political beliefs as not lining up with Biblical Christian teachings - like with abortion, by the way. Abortion is one of the things that Fea discusses at length. He says that the C...

Re: Anybody read Believe Me?

Define the Christian Right, Ed. Wikipedia sums the movement up pretty well: The Christian right or the religious right are Christian political factions that are characterized by their strong support of socially conservative policies. Christian conservatives seek to influence politics and public pol...

Re: Anybody read Believe Me?

I don't know any Christian that is a fan of Trump. In 2016 Trump got 81% of the evangelical vote. That said, he doesn't attack Christians like other candidates do. I don't understand this claim. What attacks are you talking about? Maybe there is a lesson there for democrats ? Fea actually makes the...
