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

Morny: What is the climate scientists' response to your question? Do you understand that response? If yes, where specifically do you disagree? The response of many is that warming has happened and is now in a lull. Most believe it man-caused, to varying degrees - with many of those believing it to ...

The Far Left and the Far Right

There is essentially NO difference between the attitudes and thinking of those on the far right and far left - as they are both groups, made up of many segments and rivals, ALL populated by people filled with hate and rage. And not just hate of the activities or beliefs of their opponents - no, they...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

Update 2 / son's media interview: Saw the segment run again, the station had another "blip" edit of peoples' responses to the same questions (about Charlottesville, but separated by the earlier comments segment with clips of the fighting and chaos) - so, the only other word they put up th...

Re: Media and Charlottesville Racist Riot

U777: Did God create right and wrong, and whether He did, is he bound by it? Time is a measurement between events and between things that exist. No events, no physical things - there's nothing to measure. Thus time began with the appearance of physical things. There was an eternity before this time...

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 ...

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...
