    “It is preposterous to assert that a virtuous believer like Mr. Trump would cheat on his beautiful wife so callously, and while their child was only months old,” a solemn Bakker said into the camera as colorful balloons provided a backdrop for some reason. “He was so concerned with the eternal state of Miss Daniels’ soul that he scheduled some alone time with just the two of them, so he could share with her how Jesus Christ had changed his life and how He could also save her from her sins.”

    Evangelists..LOL. Can they really believe their own bullshit?

    Thanks @regthefronkeyfarmer for a great list of interesting links, that keeps me coming back.  Sometimes I feel like Im starving for thoughtful stuff to read, and you always come up with good references.

    On the dirge for academia, I couldn’t agree more.  My personal experience was of loving to learn science, and I did the indentured servitude, experienced the false promises and prolonged time as poorly paid lab worker, teacher, and grant and research paper writer, only to learn that there was a huge surplus of academic scientists – while the National Scientist Foundation was still claiming the sky was falling due to shortage.  In the end I went back to school and had a successful career, despite graduate school, not because of it.  From what I see in the news, modern liberal arts education is worse and indoctrinates students with too much dogma and not enough critical thinking, and exploits then by saddling too many with mind boggling debt but no employable skills.  Sadly, the author, an academic, went through an entire Jeremiad, without proposing solutions.  So that author is part of the problem.

    On merging our brains with AI – who profits?  Tech is value neutral, but it seems that corporate tech is as able to exploit and enslave, as to liberate.  Tech exposes us to even more political propaganda and manipulation, and exposes us to hacking by thugs, governments, and corporations. Similarly, big pharma created the US opiate epidemic, which kills more than 50k people a year, and big pharma created life-saving drugs that they use to extort huge sums of money, despite low cost of manufacture (Gleevec for example), and buy politicians to preserve their privateering profits.  Why would that not happen with AI or some sort of cyborg hybridization?
    Now people will think Im crazy 😀
