Time for you liberals to do some serious self reflection: why do i support big government?
p-nullifidian comments on Jan 20, 2021:
I have no faith in anything, including faith itself, but as one who once took a paycheck from the US Government, I'm wondering what size government should be, in your opinion? What does "Big Government" mean to you?

I note from the article that a number of Catholic bishops signed this letter. Who knows how many unwanted pregnancies (not to mention STDs) have occurred as a result of the Catholic church's negative stance on any form of contraception? Wouldn't it be ironic if the life-saving vaccine had its origins in cells from the fetus of a Roman Catholic's terminated pregnancy!

p-nullifidian comments on Jan 14, 2021:
What the orthodox faithful may never understand is the difference between belief and identity. They hold the opinion that what they believe in is "who they are," while castigating as "sinners" those whose sexual identity doesn't square with their worldview. That said, it would seem likely that, in the hearts and minds of most Christians, a fear and loathing remains--they hate the sinner for who and what they are, not for what they do.

p-nullifidian comments on Jan 13, 2021:
I completely agree with Dan Dennett in his book, *Breaking the Spell,* that religion should be dissected, probed, compared and analyzed scientifically in the schools. Once students are made aware of the commonalities of unfounded, non-scientific beliefs and fictions found in nearly all religions, they will be free to consider them as they would all other myths, legends, tales and fables.
This describes a lot of subjects, honestly.

p-nullifidian comments on Jan 10, 2021:
Having once been a Christian, I was initially bewildered by the mastery that Trump has over these people. As a Christian I understood the concept of the ends not justifying the means and the dangers of making Faustian bargains. But then I realized that Christians who outwardly profess the importance of living a virtuous life, while embracing and even submitting to a man who represents the very antithesis of honesty, propriety, integrity and decency, could mean only one thing—they have become radicalized, just as the orthodox extremists of any other faith or ideology. And that is why they are dangerous and must be dealt with.

Indeed. When one replays the events of the day, one wonders if the entire episode was theater. But we might also wonder when and if law enforcement in this country will ever get it. This 'free pass' surely hasn't gone unnoticed by any number of angry white males who know explosives and want to become the next Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City) or Anthony Warner (Nashville). I saw lots of backpacks that made it into the Capitol chambers today, obviously without going through a metal detector. It's only a mater of time before an aspiring domestic terrorist takes advantage of his white privilege, blends in with the crowd and blows something up.

p-nullifidian comments on Jan 6, 2021:

Lou Dobbs Wonders Why It's Been So Hard 'Finding Actual Proof' Of Election Fraud | HuffPost
p-nullifidian comments on Jan 5, 2021:
“We know that’s the case ... but we have had a devil of a time finding actual proof. Why?” Welcome to the cult of Trumpism! When people take an intellectual position in the absence of evidence, or in denial of evidence to the contrary, it is nothing more than faith, which the Bible defines as "...the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1, KJV) Things people hope for do not have substance and no court of law would admit 'things not seen' as evidence. But the simple-minded Trumpists who rely on their 'gut' or hope or simply what they believe to be 'common sense' in attempting to establish their assumptions as facts are rejecting reason for blind faith.

Researchers Say Christian Nationalism is Making It Harder to End the Pandemic | Hemant Mehta | ...
p-nullifidian comments on Jan 4, 2021:
Christian Nationalism is a scourge, to be sure! However, the anti vaxxer movement has had vociferous support from the left, led by none other than Robert Kennedy Jr! Similarly, the anti-GMO movement, which is also anti-scientific, is not led by conservatives. And when one considers all the New Age woo woo that has no basis in scientific fact, the stark realization sets in that there's no political basis for insanity. Sadly, crazy is as crazy does, and neither side of the political spectrum has clean hands when it comes to anti-scientific, irrational and unsupported beliefs.

p-nullifidian comments on Dec 26, 2020:
Not that I believe any of this nonsense anymore, but the silly thing is that most educated Christians realize the trouble with the Biblical narrative that has Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem to take part in a census ordered by Caesar Augustus and conducted by Governor Quirinius, during the reign of Herod The Great. Problem is, according to the historical record, Herod The Great died in 4 BCE, nine years beore Quirinius took office and conducted the census in 6 CE. Another problem is that Rome did not require people to travel to ancestral lands to be counted, nor would they have been required to travel during winter. The Bible spells out why the couple from Nazareth needed to get their ass (as well as their donkey) down to Bethlehem--they needed to establish the 'House of David' angle for Joseph who, according to the patrilineages in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, was the actual father. It was only later--centuries later--that writers inspired by pagan mythologies felt it necessary to turn Jesus into a deity and went about inserting their interpolations regarding a virgin birth and resurrection, among many other plagiarisms of polytheistic folklore.

p-nullifidian comments on Dec 22, 2020:
Beginning with, "When will I find my keys?" there are many things that are unknowable. However, there is a significant difference between this unanswerable question and "How many grains of sand exist on our planet?" In the first case, the answer comes when the keys are found, whereas in the second case, even though we know that there is an objective, finite number, we have no way of determining it, and can only provide rough order of magnitude estimates.

Some religions are worse than others when it comes to cheapening life. I agree that a belief in an afterlife, particularly when offered as a reward, tends to not only devalue our existence on this planet, but the very planet itself.

Simply, because their ignorant god said so? This illiterate and uninformed god set humans apart from the animals, as opposed to teaching what we now know today--namely, that homo sapiens evolved from lower forms and we share a common ancestor. Once humanity fully accepts the knowledge that evolution imparts, including the implications of the range of suffering that all animals experience, a thoughtful rethinking of these so-called divine commands may take place.

p-nullifidian comments on Dec 10, 2020:
Perhaps it is due to our limited vocabulary, but there seem to be two distinct camps here regarding "spiritual" experience. Those who, much like Carl Sagan and Sam Harris, accept, if not embrace, the concept of godless spirituality, and those who think the whole notion is rubbish. Like you, I lean toward the former. "Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. ... The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both." Carl Sagan, *The Demon-Haunted Word: Science as a Candle in the Dark* "Spirituality must be distinguished from religion—because people of every faith, and of none, have had the same sorts of spiritual experiences." Sam Harris, *Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion*

But then I had kids of my own, who while in their teens, literally forced me to defend, if not entirely re-think my political philosophy. Confronted by their integrity, I began to evolve away from the rigidity of my youth, and the older I get, I'm almost surprised to find that the more liberal I become.

At the risk of seeming elitist, IMHO there is an intersection of the rise of Trump and the ‘Dumbing of America’ that Susan Jacoby described in her 2008 book, *The Age of American Unreason*. At this crossroads of anti-science, anti-reason and anti-intellectualism, we find throngs of exceedingly proud (if not self-righteous) pro-Christian, pro-gun, pro-life, anti-government flat-earthers, anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists. Their continued unabashed and braindead support of Trump is matched only by their arrogant certitude, ineptitude and inability to perform a 360 evaluation. Sadly, a good portion of the electorate appears to be afflicted with the Dunning-Kruger effect—they are simply too stupid to realize how stupid they really are—and the soon-to-be former president has been their icon.

And so we learned a new word to describe what we witnessed: balkanization.

When I was a kid we were taught that Squanto pretty much showed the Pilgrims how to live off the land, including how to fish, what berries to eat and that planting corn with a dead fish as fertilizer yielded better results.

This joke is not theologically correct. Believers profess that God made man and woman with free will, but *without* sin.

Silly loony bullshit, I know, but the joke isn't funny when the premise is wrong.
