Re: Are Guns the Problem?

I just wish the NRA and Republican politicians would change their approach and hire Walter Williams as a consultant. Moral standards of conduct, as well as strict and swift punishment for criminal behaviors, have been under siege in our country for more than a half-century. Moral absolutes have bee...

Re: Being "GENDERFLUID" ?

It is my understanding that at the chromosome level, a human being is either a male or a female. Male and female are identified and distinguished by the chromosome numbers. An individual cannot be both male and female at the same time and in the same respect. Acting or thinking otherwise violates t...

Re: "struggling to overlook"?

Post my writing that you are "struggling" to overlook. Let's collect all that material here into this thread. Quote me! As you w...

Re: Genesis must be myth.

Basically what you see above is me during my first few days of studying Genesis within a historical perspective. Now I have returned. I am stronger, more knowledgeable, and more prepared than ever before. I could nearly write a book on this subject. So for brevity I will simply enumerate the most i...

Re: Why Education is One of the Biggest Scams on Earth

Care to share the circumstances? Not in any detail. The crux of the matter was that having made it clear that I had no wish to remain in the army, the officer thought command might persuade me. At that point I swore at the officer, adding that I wasn't going to be an officer because I wasn't stayin...
