    Why did God kill the Amorites (Canaanites)?

    I am about to watch the video, but first, a prediction. Most of the explanations/claims will not be directly from the Bible, but speculation and pot hoc reasoning (God wouldn’t have done it except for X, so since God did it it, then X) We shall see

    Woke Warfighters’: GOP Report Says Leftist Ideology, Gender ‘Insanity’ Weakening America’s Military

    The problem is that while no one considers a person merely mentioning an opposite sex spouse/partner/love interest to be shoving their sexuality in others’s faces, there are enough people who consider mention of a same-sex partner/spouse/etc to be shoving. Sexually explicit...

    Woke Warfighters’: GOP Report Says Leftist Ideology, Gender ‘Insanity’ Weakening America’s Military

    Well, everyone knows that gays have limp wrists so that affects their ability to throw. As exemplified in Revenge of the Nerds where Lamar won the javelin contest because his javelin was designed to fit his limp wristed throwing style. And if we can’t trust 1980’s comedies for truth, what can we...

    Are we taking bets on whether he’ll admit he was misinformed?

    At Protests, Guns Are Doing the Talking

    No one reported being intimidated or threatened, that I have seen. Some of the laws were passed, some weren’t.

    At Protests, Guns Are Doing the Talking

    January 20th, 2020, approximately 22,000 armed protesters, held a peaceful rally in Richmond Virginia to protest proposed gun laws. Zero violence, and only one arrest (ironically for wearing a mask). Probably most were Republicans. So the mere presence of guns did not lead to violence, nor was...

    Woke Warfighters’: GOP Report Says Leftist Ideology, Gender ‘Insanity’ Weakening America’s Military

    But VySky, though he wasn’t there himself says it was a fact in 2012 because somebody else told him he heard it from some else. Even though there are several articles from well before 2012 debunking it and people I’ve talked to who went through basic in 2009 and late 2010’s say it’s not true...

    Woke Warfighters’: GOP Report Says Leftist Ideology, Gender ‘Insanity’ Weakening America’s Military

    It’s a myth, and has been around for at least 20 years. Everyone who has been through basic since the myth started has laughed at it. In the ‘90’s, the Navy did issue “stress cards” to recruits which gave advice and contact information for recruits having a hard time. Around the same time...

    Woke Warfighters’: GOP Report Says Leftist Ideology, Gender ‘Insanity’ Weakening America’s Military

    The only conflict/division with gay soldiers I ever saw in 27 years of service was due to anti-homosexual sentiments.

    Woke Warfighters’: GOP Report Says Leftist Ideology, Gender ‘Insanity’ Weakening America’s Military

    The conservatives were up in arms against don’t ask don’t tell at the time because it allowed the “queers” to serve at all and CID, NIS, etc were no longer allowed to target them. It did increase readiness in that it mostly stopped rumors and witch hunts. That is a myth that has never ever been...

    Occam's Razor

    I choose option 3: ancient aliens. Not that I have any reason (besides the Stargate franchise and having read Chariots of the Gods as a teenager), but I just like aliens as the default answer for everything.

    Why I am atheist....

    As far as I know, no physicist claims we did. The math is a bit too complicated for me. But if your real question is how did the existing universe come to be? We don’t know. If you say Goddidit….what exactly did he do and how? We don’t know. So what additional knowledge of the universe do we...

    Who Decides Good and Evil?

    No mention of Satan being the serpent. No mention of Eve. It is not possible to interpret that verse as meaning Satan was the serpent unless you already assume that Satan was the serpent. So, no. This one is interesting. You’ve quoted it before, so I did a little research. In every other...

    Who Decides Good and Evil?

    This is a pet peeve of mine: nowhere in the Bible does it say that Satan tempted Eve. Genesis just says “the serpent.” And Gen 3:14“And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou...
