nor do they follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. https://www.salon.com/2022/06/04/so-are-evangelicals-and-how-did-they-become-such-massive-hypocrites/ So who, what, why and how is an "evangelical"? I often forget after all my years of growing up in the church, going to an evangelical seminary and my work in ministry, that many or perhaps most Americans have little knowledge and

I am a scientist and mathematician. I use observation, logic, and reason to solve problems and to explain the world. But they don't. You can't have a "meeting of the minds," compromise, or negotiation. It's either their way or the highway, or no way at all. They don't care if people die. They don't care if a woman dies getting an underground abortion or of sep

I can't find it now, but Thomas seems to have some perverse form of black nationalism where he thinks African Americans would be better off living in a segregated society and blames Great Society social programs for destroying families and poverty instead of economic things like loss of jobs in cities, poverty concentration, redlining, etc. Going back in time won't solve those things either.

I don't see any point in trying to keep the USA united now. I've been to Andersonville. I've been to Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and Antietam. I've seen the graves. Those men died to keep the United States a free, united nation. But the divide is too great now. Religious fundamentalists just don't want to live in the 21st Century. They don't believe in "equal justice for all" or any f

Unlike Mormons who control Utah and parts of the intermountain West, Evangelical extremists want to make what they call "god's law" the law of the United States Of America -- which they think is their "promised land" that was given to them and them alone by "divine providence."

The Evangelicals want (white) Christian Dominionism. They will not stop. They will use any means necessary. They have sown the wind, now they will reap the whirlwind.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/jun/20/britain-female-freemasons-women-grand-lodge-photo-essay The roots of women’s Freemasonry can be traced to France in 1882, when Maria Deraismes became the first woman initiated, at the Lodge of Free Thinkers. Co-masonry (Freemasonry that admits both men and women) was brought from France to the UK in 1902 by Dr Annie Besant, who became its leade

You are right in guessing that I've read Herodotus -- and Thucydides -- and Xenophon. "The History" is one of my favourite books. I just hope that when our crisis comes -- and that is just a few decades off now -- that we will be able to withstand it...unlike Ancient Rome. Western Civilization has already collapsed twice. We might not survive a third.

Let's burn everything! No more books! No more cities! No more schools! No more society! Why ban books when you can just burn them? Isn't that more fun? In just two generations, no one will be able to read. Without reading, knowledge, science, and civilization will end. No need to take over school boards when there aren't any schools and no teachers to teach kids! No

A "Zambo" was a Spanish colonial term for a mixed race African and Indigenous American "wild" person.
