Well, what about offensive historical public monuments?

All of the sudden clamor over various people suddenly outraged over old monuments and historical things - ready to destroy them or have them removed - has gotten me to thinking: Where does that end - to what degree do we do so? First thing is, they are everywhere. There are monuments on the grounds ...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

Update, "Local News at 11": Well, the media doesn't like "Jesus" answers either! Saw my son's video segment last night - they edited out all but his first sentence - which was, (in response to the what he thought about the riot and violence) "Well, it was a real eye-opener.....

Re: Global Warming: Massaging the Data per Desired Results?

Again, this argument is ridiculous unless someone can dismiss my points concerning how the slight warming, now on the wane, with only about 150 years past any significant industrial outputs beginning, and with many , known, past 20,000 year cycles of extreme warmth and subsequent extreme cold - how ...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

Ed: So when did we get the heart problem and lose track of Jesus? Just asking, because our racial problems, which do exist, are far less severe than at any other point in the history of our nation and our religious observance is also at a low point. Ed, his point is that embracing Jesus is the answ...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

I wish I could've responded that well under the pressure of having a microphone shoved in my face.
I usually think of the best response, well after I'm already gone.

Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

The media is ever trying to stir the pot on race - spinning it to whatever political means. This morning, my 19 year old son was down at the Sec. of State's office to register an LLC company he's starting. Suddenly a local news crew and reporter sticks a mic and camera in his face and asks what he t...

Re: Why I am not an Atheist

The fact is, there just isn’t any evidence the spiritual realm exists; if there were, people would use the scientific method to study it . Uh, Ken, what realm CAN the scientific method study? The PHYSICAL realm, correct? But the spiritual realm isn't physical - which is why they scientific method i...

Re: Does Kent Hovind believe what he preach?

Re: North Korea: It Ain't Good!

Truth is, WAY before Trump arrived in the presidency, North Korea pushed things to the limit, it conducted FOUR underground nuclear tests (under Kim) during the Obama years! And after the third one, Obama responded by saying if there were ever any aggression by NK, that America wouldn't hesitate to ...

A Brief History of Ice Ages and Warming How about 18,000 years ago , as the earth started warming its way out of the Pleistocene Ice Age-- a time when much of North America, Europe, and Asia lay buried beneath great sheets of glacial ice.
