    I don’t understand how people can honestly be so stupid.

    Oh my fucking God now we have a president committing threat of war crimes on Twitter and starting his election war. I am SO leaving the US THIS YEAR. I no longer want to be associated with this nation, and I refuse to be a part of any of it. I’m seriously done. I’m moving this year. Good bye and good riddance.

    I don’t think the “impeachment inquiry” will change many minds. Those who are already made up are already made up. I would never vote for him. And those who would would never vote for a “dem socialist.” Trump has likened the word “socialism” to the Democratic Party in a way that no one sees any distinction.

    @Jakelafort

    1. remember: polls are really bullshit.

    2. Two words for you: Electoral College. He is winning in all the right places. The Midwest LOVES him and he can do no wrong. And those farmers who are pissed off at him are NOT saying they would necessarily vote against him. Many of them still rationalize it to where they still think he is the…[Read more]

    @Jakelafort

    But Trump is NOT a reflection of the majority, rather of a frighteningly large minority.

    I wish that were true.

    At first it really astounded me that so many people could truly be so stupid. Then I realized over time that it is not only stupidity but racism. Trump is a reflection of our county and our country is racist. And stupid. He will very likely win again because no one has the backbone to oppose him in the Republican Party and everyone is just along…[Read more]

  • @Jake you keep saying words like “cancer” and “poison” which is extreme language to describe what you deem as “indoctrination” etc….But you are the one who is sounding like you’ve been brainwashed. Just sayin.’ Any time you start invoking this sort of “us vs. them” mentality, you’re becoming the very thing you claim to be against.

  • @Reg okay now I understand your point and I agree. But what I don’t agree with is black and white thinking. Saying something is “good” or “bad” such as saying “religion is like a cancer.” That completely undermines all of the good things that the church has done and continues to do around the world. I would argue that the people in charge who st…[Read more]

  • @Jake there is a HUGE difference between “Observation of the natural world,” and legit scientific methodology that is peer reviewed. And if your worldview places all your confidence in the outcomes of the miniscule amount of information we have been able to gain from science, then your basically cutting yourself off to the wisdom our ancient cul…[Read more]

  • Blaming religion for bad behavior is like the alcoholic who gets drunk and punches holes through the wall saying, “the alcohol made me do it!” C’mon really? It’s like take some responsibility and stop blaming some man-made noun for all of the worlds woes. There are people who do great things and people who do horrible things all in the name of…[Read more]

  • @Reg I think we just posted at the same time lol so in that LONG list what precisely is your point as it relates to MY point which is that you cannot use the “scientific method” to prove (or even produce evidence for) God.

  • First of all, I re-read my post and I never said “What is culture.”….so…I don’t really understand that tangent. You seem to be saying that “religion is bad it makes us do such horrible things,” when in reality has it ever crossed your mind that human beings have ALWAYS done bad things?

    So let me get this straight. Are you stating that “sec…[Read more]

  • Science at most has only been part of our “culture” (at most) for the last 3,500 years and arguably WAY less than that when it comes to “peer reviewed” research. The VAST majority of human beings when you think about even being literate has been few and only in the last few decades has that changed world wide. So when you say things like “secula…[Read more]

  • You sound SO elitist when you say that

  • And the whole “the world would be better if….” you can’t possibly have really thought through ALL the implications of that. Religion is part of culture and culture has kept us alive. I mean to put it succinctly.

  • @Reg

    There is no objective reason to accept the statement that “God is real”.

    This is where I have had to part ways in agreement. I do not think that there ever can be “objective reason” like a scientific paper or research methodology that can “prove” God exists. It’s the most (IMHO) ridiculous thing.

  • @Reg

    Gods are only subjectively real to those that come to belief that they are.

    I disagree with that statement. If God exists it doesn’t really matter whether one does or doesn’t “believe”

    It is good that more and more of the younger generations no longer do.

    I disagree with that statement also. That’s basically taking the stance that soci…[Read more]

  • @Reg I don’t agree with that but it’s all good

  • It’s utterly stupid to think anyone can prove or disprove the existence of God to another person.
