    Yeah, if the Internet has taught us nothing else, it is that online discussions about Palestine and Israel couldn't possibly be more fruitless. Even more fruitless than explaining why entropy...

    I would like to issue an apology. I always hate myself for biting in Israel/Palestine discussions. They never go anywhere and it's best not to even engage.

    I'm sorry.

    Sure, but isn't Gnosticism neo-platonism adapted for Christianity? Gnostic Islam is neo-platonism adapted to Christianity adapted to Islam. Why add the extra step and not call yourself neo-platonist?...

    The point of the military is to prevent anarchy. The point of the government is to organize people. The people can do what they will with that organization. A great first step is to have a military...

    If you become suicidal from being an atheist I suggest you stay a Christian.

    But here's my two cents, all the Christians are just guessing what God wants. They don't really know. Nobody does.

    Who decides how much suffering is acceptable in order to save the world? Our experts or governments aren't in any better position than us to decide what we should value in life.

    It's not. But calling out Israel for made up crimes is. I think what you are doing is well and truly antisemitism.

    It's basically a hero's journey. The hero starts out as weak and scrappy, has some trials and then comes out as victorious. I get that. It makes sense that the exodus narrative is written that way. ...

    The vaccine protects you from dying. That is all. Your chances of catching it are radically diminished as well as transmitting it. But they're not super low either.

    I don't understand why you posted this? What's your position on this? My personal view is that Ken Ham is a loony and about as interesting as Ronald McDonald. For the same reasons.
