Re: Gemli explains...

It is hard to be fully right about anything, but one of the most basic things to learn from the history of science is that wrong ideas that have had some success were probably right in some ways, about done things. Human theories are crude, and apt to be badly wrong. Yep, ‘fraid so. Humans are not ...

Re: Gemli explains...

With that much money, church leaders don’t need members. They also don’t need faith. I’d argue the secretive hoarding is the strongest proof possible that the church’s first presidency has no faith. They’ve literally put their trust in the arm of flesh. So committed are they to that arm of flesh, t...

Re: (Auto)biographical Dictionary of MDB/DM

Doctor Scratches historical work showing the transition between ZLMB and MD / MD board splits linked in HoF is a worthy of addition as it is. I could throw together some thoughts from discovery of ZLMB to this board. I think the real value though would be in getting the perspectives of posters who p...

Re: Psalm 10:2-7 Could this apply to Trump.

Sure, but as a negative hero, the more bad he is by alleged Christian standards, the more he's loved by Christians. There is no straightforward victory by showing he's not Christlike. It's complicated and I don't fully understand why, but as a one-time WWF fan, you can see the obvious reflection of ...

Re: History of Mormonism and Christo-fascism

Indeed the entire right-wing nutjob enterprise is significantly rooted in Skousen. Back in the day, when I was waiting for the apocalypse to start, I was somewhat of a fan of Skousen. At least, I became familiar with his work, and we had some of his books at the bottom of a pile at the home gospel l...

Of course Hunter will walk. If not he'll be pardoned. Even if Trump wins, the Deep State still controls the country as they did in 2017.
I think you want Hunter to be guilty more than you really believe he is guilty.

Re: Science is wrong sometimes, therefore anything is possible

In terms of propositional knowledge, religion doesn't stand a chance. It becomes incoherent to even try to make a case for how religion could possibly be right -- that's where it seems fishy for Harris, because science trades in precise empirical description, measurement, and confirmation. Take the ...

Re: 2024 Election Campaign MEGATHREAD

You could replace "The sudden death of Alexei Navalny" with literally anything else and his message would be the same.

"The long line at the bakery today has made me..."
