Homo Sapiens Sapiens have clung to religion, in one form or another, since their beginnings. Fifty percent is actually encouraging, considering that a hundred years ago, it would have been more like 99%!

davknight comments on Apr 15, 2019:
I can remember my elementary school had an annual end-of-school year ice cream social, where you were allowed to go through the line twice, to get one of those. It was a small amount of ice cream, but sure seemed like a lot, on a hot June afternoon.

davknight comments on Apr 13, 2019:
When I moved to Colorado in 1990, I was surprised to learn that Iron Butterfly was alive n well, and performing there. There are a lot of old rockers living in Colorado! Did you know that "Innagoddadavida" was actually plagiarized from a song entitled "In the Garden of Eden"? I learned that little tidbit from Mack Rebbenack's autobiography. Rebbenack is better known as 'Dr. John'.

Are human rights universal or linked to a particular culture? -
davknight comments on Apr 13, 2019:
The concept of "human rights" is a product of the eighteenth-century European Enlightenment, which sought to legitimize the rise of Capitalism, and the concept of 'laissez faire, that came with it.

I was on the road last night. Do you prefer hotels with or without breakfast?
davknight comments on Apr 13, 2019:

davknight comments on Apr 13, 2019:
The Democrats used to represent the Philistines. While the Republicans used to represent the Libertines. So the above are lame arguments, since the Democrats of the time, actually thought like present-day Republicans. When did the switch take place? Back in the early 20th century. What are Philistines and Libertines? Philistines-- Extremely stupid rich people, intent on short-term financial gain. Libertines--Extremely naive rich people, obsessed with applying the concept of laissez-faire to every aspect of human life.

What's your opinion on Deism?
davknight comments on Apr 11, 2019:
Deism is a form of "insurance". Humans fear the inevitability of death. Thus, they cling to religion, in the hopes of an afterlife. If they have come to shun orthodox religion, they proclaim themselves "deists" as a last resort. They refuse to accept the reality. John Wilkes: "Life can then little else supply but a few good fucks and then you die."

davknight comments on Apr 10, 2019:
Once upon a time, brothels could be found in every city and town in America. But then, the Methodists, Baptists, Anti-Saloon League, and Temperance Union moved in. And community life changed. No longer could a town remain half Methodist, and half sinfulness and damnation. The bordellos, 'sportin parlors', and other dens of iniquity were shut down. No longer could a farmer, or worker, bring his thirteen-yr old son to a kindly, understanding madame, to break him in on the birds, bees, n sech! (This was how many a farm boy lost his virginity in the old days). There are still traces left, here and there. I know of one Colorado town, where a nineteenth-century bordello is now part of a community college campus. In another Colorado town, one can see 'cribs' (shantys where independent prostitutes practiced their trade), that now serve as storage sheds in residential backyards. Originally, they sat directly opposite a railroad workers camp. And in the town of Milliken, Colorado, many of the streets are named after prostitutes who once plied their trade there.

davknight comments on Apr 9, 2019:
The rivers were the "highways" into the interior, in those days. And if you were a Jesuit, or voyageur, wanting to travel from Quebec to Michilimackinac, you paddled your canoe up the St Lawrence, to the mouth of the Ottawa River (marked Oulacuase on the map). Then, up the Ottawa, to nearly its headwaters. Then, you portaged ten miles or so, to the little stream connecting with Lake Nipigon. Then across Lake Nipigon, to the river leading into Lake Huron. Then, across Lake Huron to Michilimackinac. ( The canoes in common use were big 16 and 32-man birchbark canoes). Why all the zigzagging? Because you wished to avoid the Iroquois (who weren't real partial to Frenchmen), and because you can't paddle up, and over Niagara Falls.

davknight comments on Apr 9, 2019:
This is a copy of a French map. English maps were just as bad. Europeans still had a lot to learn about North American geography. For example, in 1675, the Frenchman, LaSalle, took a famous canoe trip, down the Mississippi River, to find out whether it emptied into the Gulf of Mexico, or the Pacific Ocean!

Twenty years ago, a creative writing teacher told me my stuff was so bad, it reminded her of something Charles Bukowski would write. Well, I had heard of Bukowski, but never read his stories. One day, I was browsing in a local library, and ran across one of his books. On the first page I opened it to, was a poem entitled "Your Shit Don't Stink Until You Get In The Paris Review". Suddenly, I was flattered at having been compared to Bukowski!

Paxton and Gallagher was a wholesale grocery company, founded in 1879. They were also the makers of Butternut Coffee, advertised as "The Coffee that Won the West". Earliest known Butternut coffee cans date between 1910 and 1920. The carrying handle on the top was meant to make the can reuseable as a beer bucket, or a milk pail. Though there are quite a few Butternut cans listed on EBay, I was unable to find the one with the carrying handle. There are probably coffee can collector's groups out there, that could tell you more about it.

But he did make me fill it back in.

davknight comments on Apr 2, 2019:
Ever hear the one about the Three Jesuses of Kalamazoo? once upon a time, there was a State Mental Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In it, there were three patients, who each proclaimed themselves to be Jesus. To cure them of their delusions, the doctors decided to lock all three of them up, in the same room, for thirty days. At the end of the thirty days, they were let out. Whereupon, a doctor asked them if they still believed themselves to be Jesus. One of the three replied " Oh no! I'm the Father. He's the Son. And he's the Holy Ghost!" (This is supposedly a true story, I heard in abnormal psych class).
