  1. The sad thing is the media actually gives him a moment.
  2. Even more problematic are the facts that Pontius Pilate, as a Roman Prefect, was under no obligation to mete out any punishment in support of Jewish law or custom and the name “Barabbas”, strictly speaking, means “son of the father” convoluting the story even further. Sounds like an ancient case of “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullscheise” IMO. cormac
  3. Aman Tuleyev — one of President Vladimir Putin’s longest-serving regional leaders — has copped to arranging bogus sightings of the yeti to attract tourists in Siberia, East2West News reported. Tuleyev, 76, who was governor of Kemerovo Oblast from 1997 to 2018, ordered a tall bureaucrat to wear an Abominable Snowman outfit so he could be spotted in the bushes by visitors to the cash-strapped Siberian region. But despite the Bigfoot-like stunt, the former presidential candidate said he doesn’t rule out the mythical creature’s existence. Full story at the NY Post: Link

    UM's most popular band (or least hated anyway), The Noggin' Knockers have announced that they are holding open auditions for a new lead Shrieker. Their former lead won't be available for the next 10 to 15 years (7 if he behaves). Those interested, should bring their own Chain Mail and leather but leave any dungeon tools at home - your voice should be horrifying enough.

    I'm writing this from hospital. Don't worry, I'm going to be fine. But I feel I should warn you that the "Dyson Ball Cleaner" has a very misleading name.
  18. science allows us to break out from the restrictions imposed by religions. Religions want us to bend the knee to the doctrine. Science encourages us to explore the universe for what it is. without dogmatic restraints. Religion is used to control and reaffirm the status quo, science to challenge and change it.
  19. That's what I thought too. What they mean is: here is a list of relatively unknown archaeological sites. They call each one mysterious, but there's the world of difference between a people who behave mysteriously and a people who are undocumented. There is a lot of speculation about why most of these peoples disappeared 'suddenly', usually attributed (with little justification) to drought, disease or invasion. Again, just because we don't know yet doesn't make it strange or mysterious. If we were to draw up a list of the genuinely strangest civilisations ever I would suggest we include the British Empire of the 19th century. One small nation grew to be the first global superpower, invading and colonising and subjecting peoples at will, driven by their unquenchable self-belief that it was their duty and destiny to run the entire world. A mere handful of civil servants managed the affairs of entire countries, whereas nowadays it would take sixty thousand of them to organise a pi$$-up in a brewery. The Empire sucked in wealth from every corner of the planet while at home millions lived in desperate squalor. And all ostensibly in the name of a Queen who ruled a nation where women had no rights to property or suffrage. Surely a nation of such contrasts and contradictions merits the epithet strange?

    I wandered lonely as a cloud ⁠That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, ⁠A host of golden daffodils: Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Wordsworth

    We weep when we are born, not when we die.
  24. Business came to a standstill at Lyantonde Hospital when a family from Bujjubi-Kiweesi village, Kalungu district, stormed the facility to exhume the remains of their family member who was buried at the cemetery at the hospital entrance 100 years ago. It is said that Paul Kivumagana died from a strange ailment in 1921 and his body was buried in the hospital cemetery after failing to trace his family members. But the family now says that the spirit of the deceased is haunting them, as he demands a decent burial. Full monty at Dispatch Uganda: Link

    Creationism can be taught as Science

    Creationism is in no way, shape or form scientific. "Goddidit" is such a useless thing to teach children. What a bunch of morons.

    Masculine men make better fathers

    My dad had me help him whenever he was doing stuff when I was a kid. Fixing the car, I was there. Building something, I was there. Going fishing, I was there (mostly). The only time I ever saw my father cry was when my brother was stillborn. He did the best he could to be a good dad. Now I do what I can for him. He taught me self-reliance, and determination. To honor my word and fulfill my promises. I did my best to do the same to my kids. If I was fixing or building something I asked them to help. But I also had my hair braded (when it was long) and had my nails painted by them, all because they wanted to. Plus several fridays of watching toonami with them. For what it's worth I tried to be a good father.

  38. I'll tell you what's obvious: the moment anyone stands up to you with a simple, logical argument that destroys yours, you shut your mind and look for reasons to ignore common sense. Sometimes you like to pick holes in trivial points, such as the 'thousands of years' business. Does it really matter who used a certain phrase first, if if correctly describes what you claim to believe? Sometimes your interlocutor is so intelligent and savvy that they haven't fed you any such easy pickings. (Oh - gosh! - is that me I'm writing about?) So your pathetic response is the puerile 'it's obvious you haven't read my posts'; a reply so lame a six-year-old would deem it childish. Just to remind you of the points I disagree with most: You say psychic abilities are real. I say they're not. To prove me wrong all you need to do is produce a single, verified example of a psychic ability - something nobody has managed to achieve in thousands of years. You say psychic abilities disappear when subjected to 'sceptical' scrutiny. I call this reply b0ll0cks and unworthy of challenge. Events at a quantum level are affected by the presence of an observer, because the act of measuring an event requires a physical interaction with that event. (How else would we know something has happened?) But humans do not exist at a quantum scale. (Apart from your evidence for psychic powers.) You say homeopathy works. I say perhaps, but not for the reasons homeopathists think. It is impossible for water to store some 'impression' of a chemical that's been diluted so many times it's no longer present. Water molecules travel approximately 590 ms-1 (1300 mph) and collide with other molecules about ten million million times every second. Any 'pattern' or 'impression' would be destroyed in the first 0.000 000 000 000 1 second. Homeopathy, like hypnotherapy, crystal vibrations, reflexology, faith, etc., works on the placebo effect - if you believe you are getting a wonder cure you are likely to feel better.
  39. I think empathy is key. Consideration for others feelings and experiences, and using that to guide your own path is what makes a person decent. In my opinion being religious is inherently selfish, ultimately saving your own soul for its deliverance to whatever afterlife is believed in. And note I separate religion and spirituality here, belief in god/s or whatever is different in my opinion, to following a religious doctrine. I offer an example. A very close friend and colleague of mine is a Buddhist. A couple of years ago she took the opportunity to go to Tibet for weeks retreat with her local group. When she came back she mentioned this one thing in particular that had got her excited, the conversation went a bit like this: Colleague: I got to go up the mountain and saw the cave where this senior monk (can’t remember the name or title) has been living for almost 2 years now in isolation. Me: Why is he in a cave on his own? Colleague: He’s meditating and reflecting on his life. Some say he’s the closest anyone has come to true enlightenment. It was so inspiring. Me: What good does that do anyone? Colleague: He inspires others to go and do good. Me: Oh, How does he survive? (Expecting some sort of, mystical explanation) Colleague: There are loads of Buddhists that climb the mountain to bring him food and water and fresh blankets. I left him a bar of chocolate I had bought at the airport. Me: So this guy, goes off into the mountains contributes nothing to his very poor country or society and has an army of providers that waste six hours of their day (3 hour hike each way) donating food, blankets and water from their own pockets. It certainly sounds like he’s gained enlightenment, or is surrounded by fools, If I went and lived in isolation and expected others to provide for me I’d be called a dead beat and rightly so. Then I added (She is a youth worker): Gayle you do more good in the first 5 minutes of your day when you sit down and think of how you structure your day to fit in as many young people as possible. I then spent the rest of the day apologising and making her lots of tea because empathy. But yeah, just thought I’d share the madness I perceive in religious devotion.
  40. It has always seemed to me that if psychics and channelers were real, there would be no unexplained mysteries.
  41. But, but, these cases should've been allowed to go through the entire court process to appease unreasonable disenfranchised people.
  42. I agree, it is telling. The causes, not so much. Until roughly 20-30 years ago, this kind of tragic nonsense was very rare. The availability of firearms was even less controlled than now, yet we weren't experiencing frequent deadly rampages. Since removing nearly 400 million guns is impossible, perhaps we need a national discussion on how to come to grips with this while protecting 2A.

  46. Coming from the cat who says covid precautions are starving people to death who rely on American for their food yet he was delighted with tax payers paying for a wall to keep starving people out. Trump appeals to the type who is lazy and a failure their type have to blame others for their own problems toss in a bit of doom and gloom coming if they dont get their way call it "prediction" because threats might get them a stay at the fed grey bar with goat boy, Trump makes an asinine easter speech braying blame at everyone for his failures and of course his subbjects eat it like peeps and chocolate bunnies as they are failures too, and they ran to make donations to his cause. But the rest of America was done with 4 of buffooning and in a proven by trump himself fair and square vote trump was booted out not so much they wanted Biden but they didnt want trump, ouch! no evil deep huge ct needed just thinking americans who knew america was great until mr marmalade got his tiny butter fingers on it, Now this is where one of his subjects in unhinged meltdown over trumps loss will post some riduclous meme about orange man lives free in peoples head because he cant afford to pay the rent.
  47. Researchers have discovered an extinct kangaroo that adapted to climb through powerful adduction of the forelimbs and hindlimbs, grasping hands and strongly curved claws. The research, by Dr. Natalie Warburton of Murdoch University and Professor Gavin Prideaux of Flinders University, also found the new species differed from all other kangaroos in possessing a highly unusual pocket within its nose. "The specimens we analyzed—including several cranial and two near-complete skeletons—suggests this kangaroo species would climb and 'move slowly' through trees," said Dr. Warburton. https://phys.org/news/2021-03-extinct-climbing-kangaroo-species.html https://www.newscientist.com/article/2272165-large-extinct-australian-kangaroo-spent-half-its-life-in-trees/
  48. Entertainment. Its value is in it ability to make stuff up that people like. Science often does away with fervent wishes and cool stuff. Fiction and especially fantasy always outsells non-fiction.
