These crazies won't stop until they've made everone live as they did back in the early nineteenth or eighteenth century.

No matter what laws they pass, evolution is real, viruses are real, gravity is real, the Earth is round, and there will always be abortion, interracial marriages and relationships, LGBTQIA+ people, black people, Hispanic people, people who don't speak English, and people who accept science and objective, fact-based reality.

They dream of trying recreate a glorious, mythologlical past that never really existed.

You can't go back to the past.

It's impossible.

When I think of religious nut cases the following instantly come to mind
Jim Jomes
Short creek AZ
Gorden B. Hinkley
and especially Brigham Young
I have also met a number of them at a lower level on the ladder in local wards.

"and people who accept science and objective, fact-based reality."

And people who don't. Then they treat you like there's something wrong with you if you also don't.

It's like you're Bruce Willis in "12 Monkeys". They keep telling you you're crazy until you believe it, but they are the crazy ones. It's not you, it’s them.

For me, it's good to know there are other people (RFM) who share my opinion about the crazies out there. I'm way past the Mormon BS but I get a little annoyed with the headline nonsense. I come to this blog for a rest.

You can maybe get out of civilization. I've been thinking of immigrating to live with the Sentinelese.

Civilization is nasty, brutish, and often shortsighted. But it will always worship progress and alienate people wanting to make it great again.

You mean go back to better time?

Like the 1950s?

Great again?

Ew.

Who was it great for?

No. I don't think civilization will create a time machine for humans to do that regardless of how many people believe it is possible.

> Like the 1950s?

No. Do have a time when civilization was great? Now?

What bothers me is that guys like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk would think building a time machine is a good idea.

Don't go with a Bible in your hand.

I hear you, OP. It is infuriating having to interface with, let alone be put at the risk of real, physical harm, by people who are at war with reality itself.

Evolution is real, as is Climate Change and the Pandemic. It is high time we stopped listening to, or worse placing in positions of power, the mental defectives who cannot or will not accept those realities.

Well, if you change the voting laws a minority becomes a majority!

It’s never a bad idea to jump ship when it’s sinking.

but living around crazy fundies claiming that the virus isn't real is not good for long term survival.
