    The government is dictating you on how to pray. Will you follow Absolute Truth even under fear of the death penalty?



    How do people keep having a high IQ scores, if they say such prayers?

    Lmao. People still take Ben “wet *** P word” Shapiro seriously? Guy can’t even fathom song lyrics because they’re metaphorical.


    Sorry, that was a bit harsh. It’s just hard not to mock him.

    A video from Ben Shapiro, much less with "LOL" in the title, is a pretty good indication that an argument belongs in a nice, spacious trash can.

    IQ tests don't measure EQ (emotional intelligence) nor emotional maturity.

    I'd consider "Apersonkind" as a gender-neutral-friendly way to close an expression of thought or concern.

    Also, it seems to me something is seriously wrong with a political group when they're seemingly more outraged by such trivial stuff than attempts to violently overturn a democratic election.

    I guess the far right is all about priorities, eh?

    They took 'amen' and also amended 'awomen', fully knowing that 'amen' has nothing to do with men or women as it's not even an English word. It strikes me as pathological and absurd, taking something like this and making a political issue of the word 'amen' just to make some kind of point. So yes, it is bizarre and I think these people need to seriously calm down.

    Yes, AWOMEN!! I vote we change it all to awomen. After all, men already know who is the real boss of the family. Women are also so much prettier than men. How could we all been saying amen all this time? How could we all have been so wrong??

    That's what I see, It's clear as mud!!!

    A few proposed changes...
    "Mentor" to "persontor"
    "Yeoman" to "Yeoperson"
    "Tiananmen" to "Tiananperson"
    "Ramen noodles" to "rapirson noodles" <-- Had to change the spelling of person to avoid the "rape" in "raperson".

    What hilariously appalling ignorance.

    Reminds me of something my grandfather claims to have heard on the radio: "And now, it's time to say a very good bye to you all." :confused:

    It is crucially important to stress
    superficial appearance over substance.

    Saying "it's time to say a very good bye" treats "good" as an adjective for some countable "bye," even though "goodbye" is one word (derived from "God be with ye," if I'm not mistaken). So unlike "a good night," "goodbye" is perpetually a single word, hence the ignorance in splitting it into an adjective and a countable noun as in the example given.

    I hope this helps!

    Fun fact: In English 'man' originally meant 'person' before being overtaken by the French word, well, 'person'. The Anglo-Saxon word for man is 'wer' as in 'werewolf' (manwolf). Old English documents call females 'men'.

    But,

    "The use of “man” (compare Old English: mann, wer, wīf) to mean both “human (of any gender)” and “adult male”, which developed after Old English’s distinct term for the latter (wer) fell out of use, has been criticized since at least the second half of the twentieth century."

    So it's been critiquied but the etymology seems legit from documents.

    From Middle English man, from Old English mann m (“human being, person, man”), from Proto-West Germanic *mann, from Proto-Germanic *mann- m (“human being, man”),
