Re: How Many People Did the Mopologists Baptize?

Good points professor. Sure, some sow others reap, but across all apologists, we’d expect to see the reapers who used Mopologist tactics.

Re: Mar-A-Lago Legally Searched by FBI

I wonder if any of those docs that Trump was sitting on had any market value?
A question he's pondered himself, independent of his original reasons for taking them.

Re: All atheists should be nihilists

You know, that's a great point Dr. Moore. "Nihilism" is just his snobby term for it.

Re: How Many People Did the Mopologists Baptize?

He could also subscribe to the "plant the seed theory" -- "who knows" how many would eventually convert one day from that tract or first discussion, or even that Bible bash. Can't you see him believing that somebody he ridiculed in debate came to believe that he was right all along and eventually go...

Re: All atheists should be nihilists

DCP should also be a nihilist. He's said many times that without an afterlife with infinite consumption, this life is meaningless. In other words, he's a relativist that hitches meaning to his own personal tastes and preferences; to what's good for him personally, given the experiences he's just hap...

Re: How long/intensely did you believe in the historicity of the Book of Mormon?

I think H's point about the "bundle" is critical. I can't explain my beliefs about historicity in a straightforward way. The gospel is a tapestry with a certain look and feel, a fragile production in danger of unraveling if any of the thousand loose ends are pulled at too hard. Yes, I would have alw...

Re: Mar-A-Lago Legally Searched by FBI

From what I've heard, Trump's legal defence will indeed be that he declassified all of it, or thought he did in good faith. It's noted that he doesn't have the power to declassify nuclear secrets. What I can't decide is if those 29 boxes were targeted or random. At first I figured random, just grab ...

Re: Biden's Economy?

That's right. Biden got his "inflation reduction act" passed, and within hours, inflation went down and the stock market went up. All the personal doing of Joe Biden.

TL;DR

Will someone who read that article be so kind as to summarize it for me?
Sure. In the 90's, Newt Gingrich called upon conservatives to become unhinged right-wingers. Conservatives complied.
