I have taught science for 30 years. I have worked as a scientist in two different fields. I was raised in the Presbyterian church. I abandoned it after my first year in college. I realized I had many questions that theism could not answer adequately.. I have been an atheist ever since.

Until recently, I found being an atheist meant being a hidden population. Glad that being rational is becoming more socially acceptable.

Are you racist?
t1nick comments on Jul 16, 2019:
Biologically and evolutionarily, the concept of race does not exist in humans. Biologically, race implies a geographically isolated population that has evolved independent of its parent population and would under normal conditions not interbreed with the parent population. Not a new species, a subspecies perhaps. Humans by their mobility has precluded the ability of any human population on this planet to be or remain geographically isolated. Interbreeding, either willingly or forced has occurred between all human populations. Every human carries a little DNA from every group somewhere in their code. There is no such thing as a pure group. Skin color does not define race. It defines melatonin production as a result of geographic proximity to, or away from the equator or poles. It is a consequence of adaptation and sexual selection. In humans, "race" remains a cultural construct, not a biological determinant. For me personally, I am predominantly of northern and western European heritage. But for over 20 years of my teaching career I have lived on various Native reservations or taught in all Native schools. In all these instances I was by and large the minority. I have felt reverse discrimination, but never was deterred by it realizing that as they got to know me better it would disappear. And thats what happened Now everybody has some area where discrimenation creeps in. Humans are about hierarchy, even if they consciously fight against it. To claim no racism whoatsoever is to dimenish the significance of what racism is according to scholars who study racism. Its to deny the insidiousness of racist behavior.

You make an astute observation. However how can we stand by and do nothing. That is as counterproductive as challenging it and losing. But, we must stand up to boorish and racist behavior no matter up. IMO we may be at a racial tipping point. The racial genie is out of the bottle and cannot be put back in. If Trump and the Republicans want to fuel the fire, ultimately they will get burned.
Trump Is a Racist. If You Still Support Him, So Are You.
t1nick comments on Jul 16, 2019:
If you disagree with Trump and think his words are racist, but remain quiet, you are complicit. By staying quiet you give implicit permission to the perpetrator, making you just as guilty as the perpetrator. Just ask the vicitms of Naxi Germany 1933 to 1945 That population was silent too as the Nazi's rose to power and began their atrocities. The populace remained silent, turned a blind eye, then attemted to rationalize it all away, and we observe what happened next.

If you are not actively opposing Donald Trump now, you are part of the problem.
t1nick comments on Jul 15, 2019:
In summary: On Saturday, Trump tweeted a post that has been deemed by the majority as racist. In order to capitalize on the recent division in the Democratic Party between Nancy Pelosi and the freshman squad, Trump made a racist declaration against the freshman squad. His intent was to continue to convince his supporters that the ENTIRE Democratic Party has moved incontrovertibly to the far left and are socialists, even were communists. He demanded that the four freshmen female Congresswomen of color go back to the country they came from. That their countries were the equivalent to "shithole" countries (he didn't actually say that word this time but the description of their "counties" were close enough. First, three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States, and are therefore US citizens. The fourth, Ihan Omar was born in Somalia, immigrated to the US at age 12 and became naturalized. She is a US citizen, she went through the proper steps, took and passed the Naturalization exam, and was elected by other US citizens. He claimed that they hated the United States and should leave. Conflating criticism of policy with the hatred for their country is just ignorant. Conflating criticism of Isreali policy with anti-semitism is just ignorant. The worst part is the use of the racist trope, "go back to where you came from". That trope has been around since before the Chinese Exclusion Act of the 1880's. It was a common trope during Jim Crow for blacks. It was used against Italian and Irish immigrants at the fin de sigle. It's been the clarion call of those who want to exclude immigres from Central America. It was a blatant racial slight, beyond debate. Its a clear overt dog whistle to white supremacy. He tripled down today from the Rose Garden. No apologies, no clarifications. He is an overt racist, no longer debatable.

t1nick comments on Jul 14, 2019:
Is that surprising? He has openly worked to undo anything Obama accomplished. Trump is openly racist, as is his supporters, and they are working overtime to erase Obama's legacy. Just like McConnell set out to do. McConnell vowed the day after Obama's inauguration that he would actively work to block anything Obama put forward and make sure Obama was a one term president. He failed on the later, and mostly succeeded on the former.

t1nick comments on Jul 12, 2019:
The two situations which you are attempting to conflate are not necessarily compatible. A dining situation can have implications and pitfalls that are different from thise associated with being a jounalist and doing a job. Questions of who pays, believe it or not that is a high anxiety question for many women. If you let the guy pay, many immature guys attach expectations to that action. They believe if they pay, they expect something in return. You offer and srmand to pay, and the same other petson is insulted. It many cases it is a no win situation for the women. In the situation where a woman journalist is doing a job the lines of expectations and behaviors are more clearly laid out. Not that individuals might not overstep those boundaries, but is less likely. Given the raising of perceptions over the last couple of decades, the situations outlined above have decreased. But there are still a large number of socially immature men out there.

t1nick comments on Jul 12, 2019:
Knowlege is nothing without the tools to apply them. What you call technique is really skills. Intellectual content is nothing without the ability to properly evaluate what you see, hear, or read. Thats why we have Trump followers today. Somewhere along the line they failed to acquire the tools necessary to evaluate the information they were taking in. Whats missing in elementary school (and it continues throughout all of secondary education) is intellectual disciple. Complex rational thinking is not an innate skill that one is born with (notice I said complex). It is learned and develped by practice. Schools are no longer making their students be accountable for being intellectually disciplined. We accept sloppy work that fails to meet the mininmum skills standards. We allow inferior thought processes, inferior demonstrations of skill development, and inferior products to be handed in. However, before you say, "well its the educational systems fault, the schools fault, the teachets fault.", realize teachers and schools are just responding to the level of support they recieve from parents. Teachers and schools would love to ibcrease the intellectual demand and rigor of the work. But over the last 30 years parents have abandoned education. Now teachers are reprimanded for making the wook "too hard". When Adminstrators bring this charge against a teacher its usually because of parental pressure. They want little Johnny to get good grades, but Johnny refuses to do the work that is sent home. Instead he goes in his room plays video games. The parents are inept at getting him to cooperate and do his homework, so they give up. Its easier to complain to the Principal or School Board that the teacher expects too much from their kids. Complex thought processes snd problem solving is far more important in the long run than content. If I have the skills developed for critical thinking, I can take in sny snd all content and be fairly sure that I can effectively evaluate, understand and appropritely question the material. "Give me a fish today and I eat today, but teach me to fish and I provide for all days going forward" Give me a fact today and I can repeat it back without understanding its significance, but teach me to think and I can solve the problems that I face going forward.
Cutiebeauty, your future!

Things not mentioned in the article: 1. Barry is moving at only 5-10 mph over thr Gulf. At that speed it may stall out once it makes landfall. That means that an overly excesdive amount of rainfall on the state. 2. The Mississippi River is still at partial flood stage. This means that new discharge into the river due to Barry will return it to critical flood stage. 3. The maximum flood level ever reported for New Orleans is 21 ft. Barry is expected to crest at a minimum of 19 ft.

t1nick comments on Jul 10, 2019:
I concur with him regarding that science and knowledge have limits. I do not agree with his defintion of the limits or the relationship to sprituality. First off, IMO the limits surrounding science has little to with the ability to advance scientific discovery, invention relating to that discovery (technology) or developing means for advancing either. IMO the limitations comes in the ability to measure the impact or consequences acquired from the new knowledge of our inventions. Yes, we can do it, but should we do it? Humans, with the exception of the astronauts, are limited in their world view and frame of references. Being confined to this planet, the totality of our experiences from which understanding can be drawn is limited. Our paradigm of existence is therefore limited. Consequently we make decisions based on that paradigm and as history has demonstrated, we make the same errors in judgement repeatedly. Humans are a relatively young species. We have not been around long enough to have been able to expand our philosophical horizons much beyond our early sapian beginnings. Yes we have substantially more content and knowledge, but like our early sapian bretheren, we are still limited by our world and its experiential limitations. The exception may be the astronauts. We lack the emotional maturity that allows us as a species to comprehend and temper our intellectual capability. It has nothing to do with spirituality unless you want call our naivete spritual.

Your first premise isnt totally correct. Not all the members of the House and Senate (the House worse than the Senate) are well educated. Select members of the Freedom Caucus have demonstrated a lack of higher level education. Not only that, but a degree does not necessarily a guarantee of being either wise or intelligent. There are a lot of ways to cheat your way through a college degree (and the ethics of some of these politicians would not put it past them).

t1nick comments on Jul 7, 2019:
This sounds like a white privilege perspective to me. I'm not sure this was your intent. From your bio you express concerns about troubling social trends that negatively impact marginalized groups. But your post reflects a whites only perspective. Kamala realizes that minorities are becoming a large voting block, and that Trump is spurring the dialogue around racial discrimenation as it hasnt been since 1964. She is betting that monorities, women , and the under 30 vote will be the tipping point in at last overtaking the white vote. Its early in the race, and she realizes that galvanizing her contigency will pay off down the road. Don't mistake my point. I'm not saying she is a shoe-in to win. And Im not saying that the contigency she is attempting to appeal too will ultimarely be successful in overtaking and reversing traditional white male dominance in politics in this next election. But she/they might be. She is part of a growing ground swell. It may not realize itself in 2020 fully, but it is a force to be reckoned with in the future.

I have been a teacher in the Native American community for over 30 years. I began my teaching career teaching on the Hopi Reservation. A geographically isolated reservation that still had most of their culture (albeit they too have beem affected by the main stream culture - but not as much by Christianity 30 years sgo). Now 30 years later, living and teaching on the Navajo Reservation I see a definitive impact of Christianity on the Native community. I would not be exaggerating if I were to postulate that at least 95% of my community identify themselves as Christian and Native. All public ceremonies are begun with a Christian prayer and end with a Chrisrian prayer. As a side note, we require one year of a foreign language as a high school graduation requirement. Our foreign language is native Navajo. Their own language is being treated as a foreign language because the vast majority of students coming to us only speak or understand just a few words of their own language. Our way at preserving the language, but I worry the message of their language as a foreign language is troubling. 60% of the students resent or resist the classes and the required learning of their own language.

CB, from what youve posted over course of last year, it seems like Frankie has been there for you. I know at one point he wanted marry (if I am remembering correctly), but you weren't ready. Now that Jillian is here is Frankie still standing by you? I know his catholic family is a challenge. Having said all that, the question remains, what level of commitment to want and need now? Do you have any questions or nagging gut feelings that Frankie is not commited. Close your eyes and think about Frankie. Is there any thing that causes discomfort in your stomach when you think about him. Any regrets or hesitations. If not thats a good sign. If yes, is it something that can be overcome. Nothing is a absolutely for sure or certain. One generally knows in their gut if its not right, the red flags that eventually become something insurmountable. This is a difficult time because, with the new baby there are so many emotions, feelings, and hormones. Take your time, be sure one way or the other. Don't hurry.

The quakes were about 120 miles northeast. LA only got about a 4.0 tremor from what the reports say. She should not have been in much danger if she was in LA at the time.

Just got through reading Richatd Wake's historical fiction novel, "Vienna at Nightfall". The book is very well resesrched. It traces the rise of the Nazi Party and the march into Austria. The Nazis depicted in the novel resemble Trump and his followers as witnessed on TV during his campaign rallies. It also shows a close resemblance between the action of top Nazi officials (including Hitler) and top officials in Trumps Administration. Parallels are scary.

Under normal Administrations he could not. The Census question is on the Constitution as the responsibility of the Congress. Plus, it is the practice in this country that the US Supreme Court is the end all be all when they rule. But this is no ordinary Administration and he will just fire the existing head of the Agency that oversees printing the census and appoint his own flunky who will proceed anyway.

President of National Border Patrol Council: 'Ocasio-Cortez is trying to dehumanize us' | TheHill

AOC doesn't have to dehumanize CBP officials, they are doing a good job of that themselves. Ill treatment of people is ill treatment of people. Plain and simple. Whether you compare how Hitler treated people, how Stalin treated people, how Mao treated people, or how Pol Pot treated people, inhumane treatment is inhumane treatment. Getting hung up on terminology doesn't change the truth. CPB are acting like the bad actors they are taking umbrage at being compared to. A skunk cabbage by any other name is still a skunk cabbage (sorry for murdering the original quote).
Pick one that could fit your taste 🙊😹 and whyyyyyy😁
