    In 2023, the Texas legislature advanced a bill out of committee to raise assault rifle age to 21, but it didn’t pass

    When the article said "voted out", I thought that meant throw out the bill but now I realize that it means to advance it to have it voted on. Realized that from this part of the article... Source...

    A non-believer's case for the Resurrection

    Imagine that some event in the past is documented. It has multiple attestation, it has explanatory power, etc. Would not such an event be accepted as a historical fact by many, including historians? The answer is yes. But, then let's say that the event is a supernatural one, like the...

    Featured A non-believer's case for the Resurrection

    That's very true. It's easier to spot that problem in people who follow a religion than it is with the non-believers that claim to follow logic and evidence. The problem with the latter group is that they don't follow their standards consistently, and some belief or bias always creeps in...

    Pres. Trump got ball rolling on insulin cap, but Pres. Biden organized enough to bring it home?

    What I want to know is what are the main driving factors for the cost of drugs in the US being much more expensive than in other places. It's getting to a point where some governors are making deals with other countries to import their drugs just to get cheaper prices. Source...

    Is it wrong for women to be INTERdepedent on men?

    I often hear a lot of women say that they are independent. This most likely is the response of a lot of women when it comes to not depending on a man for anything. It's in contrast to those women who are totally dependent on their man for financial support. I can see the problems with such...

    Featured in last year’s Supreme Court ending Summer 2023, liberals may have gotten at least a couple of victories from a conservative Court.

    I think the judge has his or her hands tied because of what the law (Indian Child Welfare Act) says. If that's the case then I'm thinking the family in the case you brought up in post #4 should've never been able to adopt and raise these children in the first place. Perhaps the family...

    Featured A non-believer's case for the Resurrection

    Two pieces of evidence that persuaded me that Jesus resurrected: 1. The origin and rise of Christianity. I don't believe you can have a Christianity without the resurrection (or at least the belief in such). People would not knowingly be eager to spread a lie and with nothing to gain. The...

    Featured A non-believer's case for the Resurrection

    A skeptic might say, if you reject one supernatural story then you have to accept all of the biblical stories about talking donkeys, Jesus walking on water, the 6 day Creation story, etc. My response is that Jesus's resurrection may make these things more plausible in that there's some...

    Featured in last year’s Supreme Court ending Summer 2023, liberals may have gotten at least a couple of victories from a conservative Court.

    That's an important point to consider. Some people would say that it's damaging to give away a pet dog because they are attached to the owners, so I couldn't imagine how much more true that is for a child. On the discrimination front, I'm thinking that it's not really discrimination any more...

    The negative impact cultural and moral influences have on Science

    Found an interesting article that details how a researcher's moral/cultural standards can influence their perspective and observations: Source: https://www.nwf.org/Magazines/National-Wildlife/2023/Summer/Conservation/Same-Sex-Behavior-Animals-Science Here we see same-sex behavior among...

    Adoption cases are tough because there are kids involved, and some times the parents (one or both) of the adopted kid are also involved. This reasoning stood out to me as being an exception to race-based adoptions: Source...

    Trump's hush money trial to go to Jury on Tues. May 28th -- I'm actually hoping for a 10-2 hung jury

    So true. My mom tries to get my younger brother to stop vaping. She overexaggerates the impact making it seem that those that vape are risking imminent bodily damage. End result, my brother doesn't buy it and sees it as the overly restrictive parents trying to spoil the fun, and that's on...

    Random Agnostic Thoughts

    Whenever there's two sides to an issue, that can push people towards the agnostic side when they get fed up of the polarization and extreme views. Interestingly, I found that to be the case when it came to the recent WNBA controversy.

    Biased reporting on WNBA Caitlin Clark

    I found a very good non-partisan take on the partisan coverage of Caitlin Clark. Finding this was a breath of fresh air as Mina Kimes's exposes the partisanship and bias that is going on in both sides, the anti-Caitlin side and the pro-Caitlin side. She said this on Pablo Torre show, Source...

    Trump's hush money trial to go to Jury on Tues. May 28th -- I'm actually hoping for a 10-2 hung jury

    We know what Trump's verdict was, and we can expect that the Democrats will use it against him. But now we also know that the president's son is also a convicted felon. I'm curious if that takes the sting out of Trump being seen as a felon. Can President Biden show that he has something...

    The controversy continues... Here's from The Inquirer: Here's some reporting from some people I watched on Youtube... (Here's a view that's more moderate) (Here's a view that argues for Caitlin being on the team) (A perspective that says Caitlin was not snubbed.. start from 2:40 minute...

    Is the Bible's teaching on forgiveness practical? Is it possible to forgive in any circumstance esp. with repeat offenders?

    The Bible says that if someone sins 7 times in a day and repents 7 times that same day, then we should forgive that person (Luke 17:3-4). In another area, it says to keep no record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:5). Luke 17:3-4 “If your brother or sister[a] sins against you, rebuke them; and if...

    Former President Trump booed at Libertarian Convention, Saturday, May 25, 2024

    Interesting story to read about, Lemur. In a way, I think that the 2 presidential candidates are their worst enemies. Trump shoots himself in the foot with his mouth (offensive and insulting rhetoric), and President Biden does so by reacting slowly to some important issues (or not having...

    Comedian Bill Burr on the WNBA

    I just watched some of Bill Burr's stand up comedy on the WNBA. I've read that he hates both the Democrat and Republican party although in this video he roasts the WNBA. Here's a short clip: There is a lot of profanity so viewer discretion is advised. I'm looking for the full version.
