The implication being that weapons that fit military specifications are more lethal/deadly/powerful, or otherwise deserving of more or stricter restrictions than other weapons. Can anyone (who...

    Politifact calls out Biden for the 3rd time for lying about the 2A

    You couldn’t buy a cannon when, in fact, the Second Amendment passed. This is the third time Politifact has called Biden out on this false claim. I think they should up the rating to “pants on fire” because he had to know it’s not true by now. And the Constitution implicitly allows private...

    Republican or Not

    I think this one hits the nail on the head, covering Liberal smugness, Trump worship, but mostly the tendency of Liberals and Conservatives to overuse slogans, and allow one part to determine view of the whole.

    Why does it matter whether or not a god is good?

    Assuming a god is an intelligent being, far more powerful than humans and capable of acting outside and beyond what we know of reality and capable of determining the fate of humans in an afterlife, why does it make any difference if that god is good or evil, benevolent or malicious? Either way...

    March jobs report: UE Rate 4.4%, employment -701,000

    First all the caveats: The survey period for the Current Population survey (unemployment level, rate, and other labor force data) was March 8-14 and so does not reflect later job losses. The survey period for the Current Employment Situation (nonfarm payroll jobs gained or lost) was the pay...

    My prediction for Mueller’s testimony.

    Both Democrats and Republicans will show they don’t give a damn about his actual thoughts or answers, they’ll just be pretending to ask questions when what they will actually be doing is stating their own opinions. The answers are irrelevant and no questioner will let Mueller have the final word.

    Adam and Eve and the Fall

    Note for those who do not believe in a literal reading of Genesis: For the purposes of this discussion, we will assume that the Book of Genesis is literally true, though I am fine with an explanation of it as metaphorical truth as an explanation for perceived problems. I do not welcome dismissal...

    What it would take for me to believe in a god [W:73:222]

    I posted this thread in a different message board, but given some recent threads, I thought it would be appropriate here, as well. Now, I'm only speaking for myself, as I know many atheists have said that they are not aware of anything that could convince them a god exists, but I've thought...

    How can Christians assert Absolute Morality?[W:380; W:686]

    First off, I don't get the concept of Absolute morality: that something is always wrong regardless of circumstances. And there's even odder idea that this absolute morality is abstract so that it exists irrespective of any other considerations. But Christianity has a particular problem with...

    Many people like to point out that the words "Separation of Church and State do not appear in the Constitution. Which seems odd to me, because I'm not aware of anyone who claims they do. But, just as "right to a fair trial" is not explicitly stated, but is still a fundamental cornerstone of our...
