  1. It's not hard at all for me to leave the phone at home. I am barely proficient enough to call or text, the other fancy stuff is just flat out. But I have always been a low tech person.
  2. Myself, I guess I just don't see enough people in the middle 😀
  3. It doesn't make sense. But then, the government has a hard time delivering the mail properly, so it's also not terribly surprising either.
  4. Pete said it's baffling how some people don't see another view as valid, paraphrased. It's equally baffling to me that the trend these days is to accept every view as valid. It's a lot like overcompensation I think. There should be a middle. Open minded but not too much so that the brain just falls out.
  5. So that is where Dan went. Must have been the wrong brand after all.

    Why does it need defense?
  7. If everything you know is wrong, but you know it...then you are wrong about it all being wrong. But then, if it's not all wrong because you know its wrong, your right about it all being wrong...but...but...
  8. A person who cannot bear the perceived insults of other and cannot follow their own advice has a lot to be thankful for. The obstacles encountered daily by such a person can only make them stronger, surely.
  9. People are stupid. They will believe any nonsense if they want to or have sufficient reason to fear it's true. The reason is because they are experts who's heads are full of information and tidbits, most of which is untrue. They think this qualifies them, giving special insight into the world. In reality it blinds them and makes them stupid.
  10. Myth and religion, being synonomous to me, can be learned from. But too many fall into the trap of believing it literally and conflating these myths with reality. So you have the people who cannot recognize the difference in knowledge vs belief in myth.
  11. Knowledge is power...so we are corrupting people by teaching them, yes?
  12. I'm always baffled by those who insist there particular brand has "ancient origins" as if age begets legitimacy. An idea 10000 years old was once brand new. It doesn't become more true with time.
  13. Giving a lot with this, hypothetically if the punishment were just...it is still morally wrong. It is imposed by a fallible and often corrupt system, regardless of where you live. If it is possible that the convicted did NOT commit the crime, then to apply death to the individual is reprehensible. I view the punishment of death as unjust because the act of killing, even lawfully, has the potential to damage the do-er, and the families and lives that interact all around. And no, dan. Being anti death pen doesnt equal being anti punishment. There really are other punishments.
  14. By this standard we should uphold ALL the old law. Add in that he who has sinned in his heart bit, and we all get the death penalty for our thoughts. Way to go, thought police...if there were anyone left to enforce it. Or were you cherry picking again?
  15. You cant produce the originals, either. Yep, seems very stupid to trust someone elses interpretation of original documents that cant be seen...or cant even verify who wrote it, except to take their word for it...exactly what you do with the bible dan.
