    Trump 2024. Why or why not.

    The simple truth is this: he is an adjudicated rapist and an adjudicated insurrectionist. Those judgments are available for anybody to read, https://storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.nysd.590045/gov.uscourts.nysd.590045.212.0.pdf "The finding that Ms. Carroll failed to prove that...

    The Supreme Court will decide if Donald Trump can be kept off 2024 presidential ballots

    Not in the least. I'm willing to be the bank wouldn't want to give the guy who tried to rob it yesterday the combination to the safe. The actual evidence that Trump and his cronies tried absolutely everything they could think of to overturn a legitimate election is overwhelming.

    Alabama Supreme Court declares frozen embryos are legally children

    It never ceases to amaze me that some people, and in this case @Laniakea, cannot understand that denying a legal right to anyone based on your own private beliefs is exactly the same as presuming that you actually have the right to break the law, to the detriment of others.

    Alabama Supreme Court declares frozen embryos are legally children

    @Laniakea, you are so incredibly wrong. First, you should know that Rosa Parks was seated in the seat immediately BEHIND the last seat of the white section. When a white male passengers got on, the driver ordered black people in the front of the non-white section to give up their seats -- not...

    The Supreme Court will decide if Donald Trump can be kept off 2024 presidential ballots

    This just in -- SCOTUS has allowed Trump onto the Colorado ballot. The decision was unanimous and applies (I think) to all states.

    Goodbye Grandson. I'll miss you ...

    As a grandfather, you feel the hurt of all your family together. None of us knows the pain another feels at the loss of a child, a sibling, a grandchild. All we can do is hold each other closer.

    Independance, an ongoing struggle in North America

    Pretty much only when you're casting a ballot -- and if you don't do that carefully, perhaps never again afterwards.

    Let's start at the beginning? maybe?

    There is no "small point where micro becomes macro." But in a long (say 1,000) string of micros, the 980th is a long way from the 3rd -- there are 976 small changes between them. They might be quite noticeably different.

    Let's start at the beginning? maybe?

    What? Where on earth did that come from? Each number has a successor and a predecessor -- that is in the nature of the numbering. The predecessor to 842 is 843 -- but 842 and 843 are not the same. The predecessor to the child is the parent, but they are not the same thing. The predecessor to a...

    Because enough small changes add up to become large changes overall. Many micros become macro. It only takes 1,000 micrometres to make a metre.

    The Four Dirty Secrets Against Darwin Evolution

    Probably the answer is yes. Ask how, when you type 10 numbers onto a cellphone, it manages to cause just one phone in all the world to ring. Although trusting in phones to do that, I'll bet the science nay-sayers will eventually have to confess they think it's magic.

    Let's start at the beginning? maybe?

    @YoursTrue, I'm afraid I have to end my contribution to this thread. It is clear that you began this thread dishonestly -- you do not intend to "start at the beginning," since you've already brought up arguments you've made before, all of which have been refuted before. You do not intend to...

    Let's start at the beginning? maybe?

    This is so classic. You are asking "why" questions on the assumption that somebody or something "did it for a reason." That assumption itself has no basis -- but because you are an absolutely committed theist, you cannot let it go. The correct questions, by the way, are not "why 13.8 billion...

    Yes it does -- I have been proved wrong.

    But now she is (so we're told) actually doing some reading on the subject. I must give everyone the benefit of the doubt when they make actual efforts to learn about what the other side is talking about.

    Supreme Court takes up Trump's immunity appeal

    The thing that gives me hope most is the undecideds. To be undecided means not knee-jerk committed to a party, but to be (perhaps) a little more likely to think about who one is actually voting for, and what they stand for.

    Let's start at the beginning? maybe?

    Your phrasing of the above tells me that you are not absorbing what you say you are reading. No "fish evolved (changed eventually) to become human." None, ever. A fish from 300 million years ago bred, had offspring and died a fish. It's offspring were all fish, some with very tiny genetic...

    Supreme Court takes up Trump's immunity appeal

    As of right now, the potential for a massive Biden win doesn't look very good. Polling -- never a particularly good indicator -- certainly suggests not. Still, the one thing we can hope for is that people who are essentially good at heart will, once they're alone in the voting booth, will...

    Supreme Court takes up Trump's immunity appeal

    Well, Supreme Court Justices, last time I checked, are all human. And fallible. And yet, I think it is possible -- with a lot of work and a lot of good will -- to use reason to make fair judgements. I don't think this lot is doing that, unfortunately.
