Frankly I’ve thought the world was over four billion years old for so long that I can’t relate to young Earth perceptions any more than I can think in terms of a flat Earth. My family would have not dealt well with my opinions but I kept them to myself. I mean who should I believe, my teachers and elementary school books written my educated people, or a country minister who had an emotional epiphany that made him think God wanted him to speak for him? The choice was clear.
The Mueller Report Indicts the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theory | The Nation

Seriously the report exonerates Trump of nothing at all. We don’t even need that report, we have media coverage and if you remove all commentary except Trumps own words and actions we have enough evidence of obstruction alone to put him away for a damned long time. So if he’s not covering his relationship with Russia then what exactly is he obstructing?

Novelty comments on Apr 26, 2019:
I imagine that this justifies transphobic thoughts for people that insist on being transphobic. It’s like finding historical documentation of when the Mob would keep homosexuals around to brutalize women the Mob wanted to extract information from because the average heterosexual Mobster wasn’t willing to hurt women and using that example as a reason to hate all homosexuals. You can find rotten individuals in any sub group of people. I know several transsexuals and not one of them would do anything but be supportive of women’s rights, let alone rape anyone. From my interactions I haven’t found one that would support a trans woman competing in women’s sports. I find it interesting that the Heritage Foundation a conservative hate organization is more than willing to embrace a rightfully angry lesbian when it suits their purpose but if she were there to argue for pay equality or women’s reproductive rights they wouldn’t allow her in the building. If you’re going to give her a voice that adds to your hate rhetoric against trans women then give her a voice about all her issues. In short she’s being used. As for the rapist they should be treated the same as any other rapist, and the overzealous trans advocates deserve to put in their place both for what they did to her and for the harm they’re doing to the trans community in general. Women simply can’t be allowed to be harmed, this can be done while preserving the dignity of all non criminal people associated with this issue. The world is different now, and there will be overreactions and errors made as everyone adjust, but the world will never be the same again, and that is a great thing.

Economics are one of my weaker subjects, I’m much better at layering neural networks and arguing the fine points of silicon doping to produce pnp and npn electronics or creating charts for linearizing thermistors then I am at computing compounding interest rates or looking at the DOW and making predictions. Even with this diminished capacity even I can tell that the economy worked better under a more aggressive progressive tax system. It’s to bad we can’t simplify economics down to the point where we can put it in a control loop controlled by a fuzzy logic controller fed by a handful of PID loops. I’d love ❤️ that.

Novelty comments on Apr 26, 2019:
If absolutely NO other country has free speech and we're scoring at the bottom in math, science, completion of education, standard of living, infant mortality, gun violence, happiness, health care, etc, etc.. then how is this helping us? What we've enabled is any unqualified moron to argue any arbitrary position and the simple fact that he holds that opinion makes him the expert in that position. Like Ken Ham, clueless, stupid, vindictive, tax free, and poisoning the minds of children as well as their child like parents arguing against science. Freedom of speech was supposed to be about the ability to express grievances especially against government, not about convincing people that the Earth is flat, or that it makes economic sense to go to a flat tax which violates the rules of mathematics and logic. The fact that this concept is so sacrosanct that my point will anger and infuriate many only highlights how brainwashed we are and how that brainwashing has led to the likes of Fox News and Donald Trump. Think about it. This video is just a little more glue to keep those MAGA hats on the morons.

With Satanist I'm glad they're there to show Christian hypocrisy by being the harsh contrast. Since there's a type of person that's into it my assistance isn't required and I have zero interest. I do however worry that someone will take it all a bit too serious and then like the flat Earthers lead delusional stupid lives just because their founding members were over actors.

They’re further convinced that religion is critical for a just civilization. To hell with all conservatives everywhere, they’re just wrong.

This seems to confirm my doubts about the period of time known as inflation. I’ve pointed out the fact that an increasingly accelerating expanding universe requires no initial inflationary period that's faster than later ”normal” expansion. For me to be right we needed a universe that was expanding faster than the assumed rate. Truth is that the initial inflationary period was projected due to the bias that universal expansion was slowing down, now that we know how wrong that is we should drop the concept entirely.

The people that still think Trump is a great president are the same kind of people that never admit they were wrong about any opinion they ever had, unless they think no one remembers and then they pretend they were always on the right side of history. Recently I was speaking with several people I've known for years that would almost start a fight if you didn't support G.W. Bush, with stupid chants like "The surge worked!", you know completely brainwashed Republican types. So I bring up Bush and unanimously they all said something to the effect of "Bush was just like Clinton, I never could stand that stupid SOB!" So cognitive bias prevents them from seeing where they were nor where they're going. All of them, every single one, support Trump. Five years from now they'll lie about supporting Trump and believe their own lie.

I’d love it if we all accepted life as it is and kept our insecurities as our insecurities without projecting them onto others. I mean I’m not happy with myself most of the time but that’s hardly an excuse to strike the ego of another human. I do draw the line on politics because it affects everyone. To not talk about it is like telling people in 1939 Germany to not make waves about what was going on then. So when people justify putting small children in cages I just can’t keep quiet, but that’s hardly an ego competition like you’re talking about even if people pretend it is. As for the catfighting, I’m an ape-descendant so I’m not up for it. If I bought into social norms I’d be a Republican Christian with a superiority complex.
What is the difference between "makers" and "takers" in the economy?

I refuse to use the word "earned" to describe business owners that keep telling hard working people that they're poor because they're lazy and don't work enough, those are the very people that do all the work. Entitled rich don't get to brag about how hard they work when their money comes from the efforts of their lawyers and manipulation of the market. These scum have had their asses kissed for to many decades, they are the new robber barons, and they screw us with their influence over politics, both political parties served the interests of these corporate robber barons.

I did feel that way, when I lived in my native state of Alabama, but I immigrated to the United States and now live in California where I feel no discrimination at all other than the weirdos that show up at Pride events with hate signs, and they go to way more Pride events than I do.

You can't always allow yourself to be a punching bag. The Democrats don't have to prove their moral superiority over the Republicans, there comes a time to stand up to the unjust. This is why I detest establishment Democrats, and I find my political soul mate in the Progressive movement, we don't back down, give up, or take half measures.
Evolution....the beginning....

Novelty comments on Apr 23, 2019:
The very first modern politician was a guy in France, Cardinal Richelieu, who died in 1642 the reason he's considered the first modern politician was because although he was a Roman Catholic Cardinal, he did not hesitate to make alliances with Protestant rulers in attempting to achieve this goal. His tenure was marked by the Thirty Year's War that engulfed Europe where he ordered protestant armies to attack Catholic forces. Something that had never happened before in Western history. Until he came along church officials never attacked armies that shared their religion.

40,000 Americans died from gun violence last year. Thats 109 a day on average. South Africa is violent with 156 murders per year per this video. It is shocking, but we have far bigger issues here in the U.S. compared to over there in South Africa. It's all vile. This documentary is loved by racist for obvious reasons that don't apply here in the U.S. Revenge is a powerful motivator and utterly ruthless, something to remember before drawing conclusions that might lead to stupid reactions. There's a history in South Africa where the ruling class of whites continued with apartheid long after it should have ended and well within living memory of people that deeply resent it. This kind of hate is what happens when the wealth gap becomes as ridiculous as it did in South Africa. I justify none of it, but a more equal distribution of wealth, education and opportunity would have prevented almost all of this. America is becoming as divided economically as South Africa was, but here the "revenge gangs" will not be "the blacks" on the day the poor arise to eat the rich. We still have the chance to change things, but as it stands, if it continues to get worse America is doomed.

The only people I advocate keeping locked up longer are the ones on death row, how many men need to be executed only to be exonerated a year or two later by DNA evidence. We pay millions more for the privilege of killing them which just lines the pockets of over priced law firms, which is the only reason it remains legal. As for the bulk of the U.S. prison population they are disproportionately members of minorities and kept locked up by a widespread assumption by Caucasians that they're there because they can't control their selves. Yet when you suggest the police are biased, all the maga people get pissed off and start racial hate shit like marching around with weapons and threatening people. Who can't control their selves? No human wants to be disrespected, we all react badly when we are, but only minorities seem to get stuck in prison for decades at a time because of it.
