Yes, I have brought this up on previous threads.. I was just trying to get an explanation from a Christian... someone who believes that Ussher's "begathematics" reflected reality.
Undoubtedly. And there is no mention of it in the Bible. What is the obsession that "Christians" have about the Earth being 6000 years old? Whose word, or belief system are they following as regards this, and other nonsensical fundamentalist "Tourettisms"?
Can any Christians, either the rare genuine ones, or the huge majority who use it as a "flag of convenience" point me to a Biblical quote where Jesus, or Paul, or any of the other luminaries of their belief system state that "the Earth is either 6,000, or 10,000 years young?
99.99%_+ human beings, regardless of political leaning, have feelings... concepts as ethics, common decency, humanitarianism, the need for community, feelings of guilt etc. etc. etc. The political right have been pushing the "corporate personhood" issue very hard as a way of imposing sociopathic and even psychopathic political decisions by proxy. Corporations have all (if not more than) the rights of individuals, but are not burdened with the responsibilities that...
Segovius: Fair enough, so the right exhibit sociopathic tendencies... but what can we call the affliction that infests the so-called "left" in the US? Wannabe sociopaths? :P The "left" are in competition to see how far towards the right they can go and still maintain an impression of "opposition". The "left" has closed ranks.. both in the political and media circles, by actively protecting previous administration members from prosecution as regards cnumerous high...
SDW, why the sudden concern re. the Constitution? Your hero, George W. Bush allegedly referred to it as "just a goddamned piece of paper", and when his administration was dismantling and running roughshod over the remains of the Bill of Rights, you were mute.
H.R.H. Steve Jobs has evidently forgotten "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". Jobs, get off your corporate high horse and resume life as a human being.
Obama is more or less continuing the Bush Doctrine. In fact he probab'y doesn't have a choice about the matter ... .. as far as his lords 'n masters are concerned, "it's our way, or the highway... or worse".
The premise of the thread is a bizarre thought experiment from the outset. The US and Israel are joined at both the hips and the brain; US mid-east policy is formulated by DC based Israeli lobbying groups, comprising largely of ultra-hardline rightwing "Zionist" hawks. Israel has had a wildly disproportionate influence on US foreign policy for decades.... and can exert so much weight that even events like the unprovoked bombing and strafing of the USS Liberty (causing the...
The Iraq war (and others) were planned by the neocons prior to their installment in the 2001 Bush Cabinet. They started discussing war against Iraq in the first days after Bush's inauguration in January 2001. They spent long hours discussing how to sell the preplanned war to the public.. the WMD "justification" was reached because not only was it was the easiest sell to an already traumatized US public, but all the other "justifications" would have been too open to...
