  1. This is true. :D

    This is true. :D

    Is it really an army? The world's largest religion by a enormous margin, yet this secular website (with a google-searchable subforum devoted entirely to religious arguments) can only find maybe three...

    Not from me. I condemn racist speech no matter who it is coming from. Apparently most people think such things are only bad when done by "the other side"?

    And yes, I'm white. What of it?
  5. Imagine if Trump were to say the same of Whites....

    Imagine if Trump were to say the same of Whites. That loyalty to him is loyalty to one's race, and vice versa.

    Also as a "joke", I'm sure.

    Is anyone here attacking Biden's credentials?

    Arguments from the pet center at the peanut gallery.

    Biden is a leader, got his DNA all over legislation, on women's rights, black rights, union rights, healthcare, childcare, education, and most...

    Also true.

    I have reached the belief that it is impossible to make progress in eliminating legal persecution without some actual representation.[/QUOTE]

    Also true.

    The Party voted against her style of campaigning, very loudly. She's just sensibly rolling with the tide and supporting her party's candidate as he would prefer to be supported. While I might wish...

    Nope but at least you’ve always had the chance to see someone of your gender as POTUS. Socialist? Not yet and maybe never. Gay? Not yet at least not openly but one or two perhaps. Cold comfort, I...

    I'm not smug, I'm completely depressed,.

    Those grapes never do get less sour, do they?

    You think Mr. Sanders had a chance. Many voters thought Mr. Sanders would get his ass kicked. Many voters looked at Mr. Sander's record of big...

    Why the freakout? Who's going to change their vote over this?[/QUOTE]

    In the US, it's not about changing votes, it's about getting them to vote at all. The true partisan martinets for each side...

    If you're not an upper or middle class white guy,...

    The worst part is that while he said it in a way that will most certainly damage his chances, the thing he was trying to communicate, poorly, is true: a black person voting for Trump is like a Jew...

    Well, of course I still hope Biden will be elected. I just think he won't be. "Appealing to Blacks" is so far the only supporting argument I've heard applied to the man besides "not Trump" and "is a...

    Dear god, the man is a walking disaster. We're screwed. He always does this, torpedoes his campaigns with some dumbass gaffe, and then makes things worse with his response.

    We are going to be...
  16. It literally means "Good news" (or more...

    Did a little searching and found:

    What Gospel Means….



    That's pretty interesting. I'm going to guess that just like the word "Easter," 99.9999999% of christians don't know where one of...

    Most science is an attempt to prove some conjecture.[/QUOTE]

    That's mathematics.

    In the sciences, we are always trying to disprove a hypothesis. This is the fundamental premise of all...

    That's a common miscoonception, popularized by Dan Brown. While Constantine did print a number of Bibles for distribution around the empire, the canon was not decided (or even meaningfully discussed)...

    Well, A and B are not the same, I agree, but how has Politesse concluded that this study was B, and not A, and what criterion does she use in general to distinguish between A vs B?

    I'm not even...

    Then that would be true of all research on social issues everywhere.[/QUOTE]

    What? In what way isn't it a study? It was research done with the aim of answering the posed question.[/QUOTE]

    Loren's OP presented the results as a challenge to the idea that black people are shot or killed disproportionately by American police.
