Sorry, Mormons... https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/new-dating-method-shows-vikings-occupied-newfoundland-in-1021-ce-180978903/ Three rough pieces of wood—discarded sections of branches and tree stumps found among the refuse Vikings left behind after their short sojourn in Newfoundland—have turned out to be some of the more important evidence of the Norse in North America.

NOTE: Mormons also claim that both the founding fathers and the US Constitution were "divinely inspired" and the USA is a "christian" nation. https://johnpavlovitz.com/2018/02/13/christian-nationalism-heresies God doesn’t bless America.

There's no "freedom," religious or otherwise, that gives you the right to infect and kill others. That's like saying the Taliban or DAESH have "religious" freedom to be suicide bombers because their "

The younger Moon didn't get the keys to the kingdom, so he found other sheep to fleece. The incredulity of humanity never ceases to amaze me. This reminds me of stories of early Mormon converts who literally gave *everything* to LD$, Inc. It's the same for any cult group. But this one is armed.

Anatomy and DNA do not decide what you are or how you act. Your brain does. There are plenty of women who with female parts who are biologically male. There are also a fair number of intersex people as well. There is not a 100% clear, sharp dividing line between male and female. It's not a simple matter of "inspection." Human sexuality is complicated and exists on a spectrum

I think what you really mean is that *some* people who call themselves "christians" are out of sorts because they can't control, dominate, and repress others they don't like for cultural reasons -- not religious -- as easily as they once did. Prayer in school and public christmas decorations are two examples. Why do so called "christians" endlessy argue about school pray

As the world interred into the Information Age and all of the secrets-that-were-not-so-secret about Mormonism began to leak out to the wider world, I thought it would bring down the house on LD$, Inc. But then a strange thing happened. Nobody cared. I've tried explaining Mormonism to people. It's so weird they can't believe you are telling them the truth. Some accept the cover stor

After all, if Mormons believe that you get ancient Hebrew DNA after baptism, or that your eternal spirit is downloaded from Kolob into a "worthy" (i.e. "white and delightsome") infant human body, or that the spirits of "fence sitters" in The War In Heaven were downloaded into dark-skinned human bodies as "punishment," no matter if you agree or not, you shou

It's pointless to argue with you about this, SC. Dave Chappell says he's "team TERF." He's saying he's %100 on board with radical fems who deny trans women are women, are not female, and should be rejected and denied access to women's spaces. It's the same as saying that black people don't have a right to live where they wish and/or should be segregated against, or fat people a

If you want to live in a world of conspiracy theories and lies, fine. But you don't have the right to endanger the lives of others because you want to live in a world of lies.
