Re: Oh death, where is thy sting?

Death of a Classmate and Friend. My first memory of S is from eighth grade. I don't know what possessed the administration, but they decided a student talent show would be a great idea. And I don't know what possessed me to sign up, but I did. I was a little kid with a high pitched voice. I think I ...

Re: Oh death, where is thy sting?

I don’t remember when it was that I first met J, but I’m sure it was at the game pub. He was a regular there, and I soon became a regular. He was in his mid to late 30s, quiet, and on the tall side. When I started the Eldritch Horror bi-weekly meet up, he was one of the early regulars. He had a good...

Re: Mormon Royalty and child homicide

Looks like I got my answer. No common ground in sight.

Re: Mormon Royalty and child homicide

My understanding is that there is no statute of limitations for homicide in Florida where the crime is aggravated child abuse that results in death. Someone needs to do their job in Florida and prosecute these people. The church is a big land owner in Florida, but that probably has nothing to do wi...

Re: Did the Ancient Greeks do religion better?

I think it more likely that the invention of movable type played a bigger role in bringing about the Scientific Revolution than Christianity. I guess that I don't see the stable, discoverable, cause-and-effect Christian worldview that some of you do. The Medieval Christian god who preceded the Enli...

Re: Crime Weekly News: Idaho Murder Suspect Arrested

Or that people should be sent to prison based on a mere preponderance of the evidence as opposed to proof beyond a reasonable doubt? It would seem that the problem in many verdicts rests with how folks on a jury interpret the word, ‘reasonable’. Yes. And if you were to read a standard form jury ins...

Re: Mormon Royalty and child homicide

Does what rings true to me in Marcus's post ring true for you also? Possibly. Kind of. I would take acting humanely as not taking my grandkid’s murder, especially if it was the mother (is she the big suspect, or is she covering for the father? I dunno), and then broadcasting his demise as a segue f...

Re: Mormon Royalty and child homicide

I think if your grandfather conducted a national broadcast to shill on behalf of the Mormon corporation it’d be very different from sharing his story, probably with a degree of confidentiality, with some loved ones. The former act would make me feel greasy, while the latter would feel personal, alt...

Re: Crime Weekly News: Idaho Murder Suspect Arrested

I'm baffled. It seems to me that the word "actual" is carrying an awful lot of baggage here. It's clear that you find the lawyer's use of it offensive, unethical, disgusting, insensitive, and cruel. It's also true that what the lawyer said is an accurate description of the defense lawyer's required...
