  1. “I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish b
  2. For once, I will help 4Jah. I’ve turned over a new leaf. Think Frank Sinatra: “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie...”
  3. Yes I know..... I must be getting oldheimers.... I am making silly mistakes! Now I know why I lost my fortune and am reduced to selling pencils to get by. When I called Klaus Schwab to complain about his crummy stock tip, he shrugged. “What do you expect from me?” he said. “I think you meant to go to Charles Schwab. Sorry about the pencils.”
  4. So THAT’s the source of his ill manners. It should have been you and not Dawkins. As you have made clear again and again, you cannot be tricked.
  5. Given Biden’s laudable goal of “healing the country,” this may not be exactly the way to do it, given that half the population chose him and that most of them think his contention of election shenanigans quite possible. In fact, his time appears to have come and gone. The constant contention between he and his adversaries has tired me out. It has been almost as bad as a discussion with you. I do take note of Rubio’s words regarding some of his cabinet picks, that they will no doubt be “polite and orderly caretakers of America’s decline.” As you well know, however, JWs do not favo
  6. Your hero does. What is democracy, he said, but “the pathetic notion that individual ignorance adds up to collective wisdom?” He is a good writer. I have adapted his comparisons to other areas. Such as “When searching religion, look for the people who are individually praised but collectively maligned.”
  7. Come now. Since the purpose of impeachment is to remove a sitting president and he is going to be gone in less than a week anyhow, I think there just may be some grandstanding going on. You may have noticed a Republican member of Congress means to file impeachment proceedings of Biden over Ukrainian matters. From now on nobody will do anything at all in those two Houses except try to impeach the other. Great system of human rulership that you advocate.
  8. You’re entire premise is wrong on so many things: “American scholar of religion Holly Folk ... show[s] that, although there have been cases of sexual abuse by members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the number of perpetrators is not higher, and may actually be significantly lower, when compared to the prevalence of sexual abuse in other religions and in our modern societies in general. It is also not true, Folk said, that Jehovah’s Witnesses oppose reporting of cases of sexual abuse to secular authorities when it is mandated by the laws, nor that they sanction those who report. When governmen

  10. Can we agree that this fellow featured at video’s beginning is not pulling with both oars in the water? Lemon juice doesn’t make him as invisible as he anticipated? Nevertheless, university psychologists Dunning and Kruger seem to think this loopiness has broad applicability, as though anyone might commit such a faux pas. Reading of this idiot in the newspaper “led to Dunning and Kruger to examine this phenomenon more deeply.” This suggests to me that they too might not be entirely pulling with both oars. There is a sneering quality to this video. Rather than view this fellow as a me
  11. One of the most gracious men on Twitter is Richard Dawkins. His kindness to even those with whom he disagrees knows no bounds. I am told that angels sign up for his podcast on etiquette lessons.. There! Happy? ANOTHER GLORIOUS VICTORY FOR ALAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. What! Is this something new? I think I’ll let the provocation slide, thank you very much. ”Mr President, Mommy Alan has launched another taunt missile!” “Oh, my God.”
  13. Oh, for crying out loud! Is there nothing you will not argue? It was a general impression that my opponent and I instantly upon—our only common ground. I didn’t log his tweets in anticipation of you coming along later.
  14. So much so that I hear the cop they sent to knock heads melted right down into basic elements. Don’t bite Arauna. Annie’s hopes that you are camel riding on the African Savannah and have neglected the Terminator movies, so she can spring her trap! Tell her that even on camel, they have drive-in movies there and you are wise to her tricks. She would never try it with JTR, I can tell you that! Where is that boy, anyway?
  15. Back when I traded remarks with an atheist who did like JWs one bit, I mentioned how nasty and petulant Dawkins was. It was our only area of agreement—he instantly conceded the point.
  16. Done, For an overall chapter reduction of almost 54%. And I didn’t use the Shermer stuff at all. Save it for another day.
  17. With apologies to Colossus—the Forbin project: ”Alan has released another insult missile, Mr President!” ”Oh my God!”
  18. You would not speak so flippantly if you were more knowledgeable about Pig Science, a field in which they know more Pig Latin than you do the real stuff.
  19. It took awhile & massive extra writing of which I may use just 2 or 3 paragraphs, but the mess that was Chapter 7 (Education) is falling into place. Plus, it does not appear that Chapter 8 will need much more than a light touch to begin with.
  20. If so, it is because they have rented out Colossus—the Forbin Project from Blockbuster. It is a 1970 movie, dated, in which an experiment parallel to what you describe goes awry.
